Not sure if you'll remember me as I've been away from Fanfiction for several years now, but I've always been a huge fan of your writing, so after receiving a notification that you were writing a sequel for this and realizing I never got to read the end, I just had to come back and finish it. :3
This is so unbelievably beautiful in the best way Dark, ugly and by no means happily ever after, but so, so beautiful. Completely hooked me in emotionally the whole way through, and the ending, especially how everything fits together, has blown me away. Absolutely loved this; can't wait to read the sequel. :)

Years have passed and I still keep coming back to this story...re-read this a couple of times already because of how cloud and tifa met and how their love story progressed..and also how the characters just fit into the story... hoping for a closure and more cloti stories from you... thanks... (seems that I can't get over the cloti fan in me..)

I really really enjoyed your story and i almost wish it didnt have to end. I am looking forward to ur sequel and i cannot wait to see what became of Cloud and the others. By far this is my favorite CloTi story. I loved the characters and laughed at a lot of Tifa's narration. This story was very well thought out and enticing i liked it a lot

Just finished this story all over again... and it got even more beautiful.
I also read your profile, and I have to say, I agree with you on everything you said about Aeris and Clearis. I hate how large groups of Clearis fans are all: "Cloud should've been with Aeris cause she's nicer. And she was so selfless, giving her life like that to the planet!" Ugh. Think people! Everyone in the Avalanche group would have done the exact same thing if they could've (except maybe Cid or Vincent), but Aeris just happened to be the Last Cetra, making her the only one for whom it was possible.
Although I do not love Aeris as much as Tifa, I still love her alot and think that she at least deserves enough respect from fans (and her own ones at that) to get her own distinct personality. She's not just a sweet, beautiful girl who became a martyr for the sake of the world. All of these descriptions could easily fit Tifa as well (if she happened to be a Cetra).
I also agree that just because Tifa seems jealous of Aeris in the game, it doesn't make her a bitch. Everyone gets that feeling at some point in their lives, and who's to say that Aeris wasn't jealous of Tifa? The main thing is that Tifa never acted on her feelings of jealousy. She never went out of her way to split Aeris and Cloud up, even though they were never a couple in the first place! She was too shy and nice to do that.
Oh, and don't even get me started on that love at first sight thing? You took the words out of my mouth. Now, I'm not saying that I don't believe in it. But for Cloud, love at first sight is just not possible. Why? Because he is a veeeeery slow and dense character who couldn't even tell his childhood crush that he liked her since the age of seven until she went into his brain and found out for herself when they were in their twenties... It even took him two damn years to get out of his guilt phase for Aeris, and even longer than that in the case of Zack.
All I'm saying is, Aeris was a great character in her own right. But frankly, she just wasn't there long enough in Cloud's life for him to fall in love with her. She only knew him for a few months! So there really was no conceivable way for him to actually be in love with her. I'm not saying there was no attraction. I'm not even saying he didn't love her. I'm just saying that he wasn't in love with her.

"You're sure you're done talking? ...Aeris, I love you."
Nobody but Zack can turn insults into a love confession at the drop of a hat, and still make it successful.
And that's exactly why we love him :D

I love how Tifa's all: "Maybe they're lovers and life partners and Denzel's their adopted son."
And then she's like: : "It's a cover up!"
You got me absolutely bawling with laughter... because it sounds like something Tifa would say :P

I would gladly follow a sequel to this amazing story.
| L2 chapter 36 . 3/9/2013
Damn...this was really good. I honestly read out you whole story in a day, I was too hoked on it. I especialy loved you protrayal of the characters, I haven't read a Cloti this good in a while. The fact that its a tragedy makes it sooo much better too. I loved it. I loved your story too bits and pieces.
I sooo can not wait for your sequel. I thank you for keping me entertained :)

so good! TT_TT

Whee! Whee! Oh, come on, Tifa, you wouldn't be pursuing this if you didn't really love him. Don't deny it... hehe I like how she refers to the guys as 'my men.'
| Aki no Ryu chapter 17 . 2/19/2013
I like how Tifa wasn't even surprised when Zack brought love up. It's like she already knows she loves him instead of it hitting her right then. Afterward I hope she thinks it's a relief to that she finally saw how Marlene dies. BTW, does her gift only show her certain people? Because not everyone she interacts with have been shown her.
| Aki no Ryu chapter 16 . 2/19/2013
Relief in the middle of all this tension and uncertainy, thank you. I laughed over the 'six children' outside. Even Reeve's there, that's so nice of him. There's been two references now of ShinRa slash the Turks being involved with burning a village. I wonder if Tifa will start connecting it to Nibelheim. As for that little cozy scene in the middle of this chapter, was it a dream or a vision?
| Aki no Ryu chapter 15 . 2/19/2013
Oh my gosh, somebody just get rid of Genesis already. He's such a liability for ShinRa and to bring him back to the main city? So he's the bad vibes Tifa's been sensing all night, huh? Oh boy. Good job on the fight descriptions, I like the nod to Tifa's fight with Loz. Thank goodness for SOLDIERs who are still reasonable.
