Haha, skilled with more than just a sword it seems. Cloud slipped into that old language tongue so easily. I wonder why Tifa would come here. the word Bride...I'm starting to wonder if she came here because she thought Cloud was dead.

Aww, Cloud's mom is pretty kool.
| Shade the Hero Project-X chapter 12 . 3/9
Okay, so Cloud is swordless, not a good thing. But, thankfully he's not lifeless thanks to her.

Aww, Poor Tifa. I never liked Sephiroth.

I wonder who's card set off the alarm.
| Shade the Hero Project-X chapter 6 . 3/9
What an awesome chapter.
| Shade the Hero Project-X chapter 4 . 3/8
Poor Cloud, he's nice to the girl, does what h was hired for and gets treated like dirt. Oh yeah, he also got injured thanks to them. What is Barret's problem?
| Shade the Hero Project-X chapter 3 . 3/8
Wow, this Cloud is a lot different than the one I'm used to. I like this different Cloud. He's witty and funny and downright awesome. The other one is awesome to, but it's nice to see him a bit more upbeat.
| Shade the Hero Project-X chapter 2 . 3/8
Okay, I knew Cloud was awesome before, but it's like seeing him in action for the first time all over again. I loved his lines. They were blunt, honest, witty and made me laugh.

It's not that I refused to play FF7, it's just that I've been having trouble trying to get it. I'm definitely going to be following along with this story. Basically putting it: I'm hooked. :)

I just love how you portray Aeris's character
| Out of Books chapter 13 . 1/25
You are proving to be quite the find. Being able to properly capture Aeris is a near-dead talent; even amongst her most diehard fans.
You cleared out the awkwardness of the 'sick guy' scene quite nicely, too. Most novelizations merely fix the mistranslation at best, or at the worst drop hints that he's actually Zack.
I await Wall Market with bated-breath. Will you stick to original game silliness, or try to give it moral weight? But I'll have to wait for that. In the meantime, how's Cloud's mom?

I love your updates, it's like you get better and better with each chapter!

I really love how natural they seem together!

I'm very much enjoying the fill-in segways of your story. Well-rounded filler characters will always make a story in my book. I'm also enjoying Cloud, as you seem to have struck that balance of making him feel like an informed character yet still ambiguous enough that much of his thoughts and reactions are left up to my interpretation. A trend I hope you continue with. You know that you're succeeding in writing for Cloud if people are arguing about his intentions and motivations.
I do have some complaints regarding that I'm seeing typos regularly (I usually gloss over that, but there's really just too many.) , and your descriptive flow is occasionally a little lacking. The most recent example being in this last chapter, where you go out of the way to mention Tifa holding Biggs back from Shinra, but it's Barret projecting all the hostility. What is Biggs doing that warrents Tifa's concern as opposed to the much more dangerous counterpart of Barret?
They seem small but I had read up on how you originally had over a hundred chapters that you just deleted to restart. Your reasoning was because you had mentioned having to go back regularly to edit previous chapters, correct? That's quite the undertaking and shows that you're quite serious about this work. Coudose, but I imagine this to be a project you should slow down for. Otherwise, you may find yourself in the same situation.
Beta-readers may also be a good fix.
