It's been a long time. Wandered back into the FFVII fold and found my way back to your fics. Just wanted to say that this fic is every bit as good as I remember! Congrats for making something so timeless! I forgot how gently this fic started - I almost feel like there's another story to be told from this before it diverted away into the epic I know and love. Maybe one day that alternative fic will get written. I may add other reviews as I go through. Thank you for being so good!

okay so I've read this story 3 times in the past 7 months and am om my 4th time around. No idea why i havent reviewed but i Would just like to tell you how much I really like this story. i can easily say its my favorite Cloti fic. The story plot is just so refreshingly different and I know it was meant to be a crack story in the beginning but it just felt so nostalgic because I go to anime conventions every year so it's really felt like you got the heart of the convention down. And also I love how you basically changed up the story of final fantasy 7 and gave the story's characters different names and had them cosplay as them. It was just so original I give you so much credit for coming up with something so fun. I also love the way you portrayed their personalities especially clouds. You pretty much had his personality down from the way I would imagine he Would-be and my 2nd favorite character is Zack because you brought out the playfulness in him that I love so much. The twist with Zach really made me feel for him but it just went so well with the rest of your story I cannot believe how wonderful I think your story is. Best part of all is that you have manage to complete it even though it is 112 chapters long. It really breaks my heart to read stories that have so much potential but are not finished.

This has been an awesome story. I love how you took so many key elements and wove them into a unique and satisfying retelling. Absolutely brilliant.

The way you wrote Cloud and Tifa was just... sublime that it gives me feels and warmth and bubby love all over. :D You made them fit each other so well especially the part near the end when Tifa was trying to get Cloud back when he was sorta posessed by Jenova. It was so bittersweet and angsty and ahhhhh... And Aerith was awesome and sweet and just perfect. Zack/Kunsel - I did NOT see that coming and the whole love of family... Idk what else to say but the you portrayed the characters so well that they fit and bond with each other too. This is one of the BEST fanfics I ever read. Thank you for making this. Just thank you. I'm so glad I read it way after you conpleted it or else I wouldn't have survived waiting for new chapters

So I have just finished reading it for more than a simple few days... and I don't know if you're still active here or not but THANK YOU FOR THIS AMAZING STORY.
I don't review all that much cos I usually can't fight the right words but I believe for such an epic (albeit cracktastic at the beginning) story you deserve so much kudos. So much.
I was interested at first because ya, FF7 characters going to con as a film based on them? Pure, ingenious crack and I just kept going until - until I actually realized that *it is long* and so braced myself starting from back then when Barret was surprised with Cloud in the room upstairs.
And GUH I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS STORY - Cloud evidently didn't talk much, still doesn't; I can just imagine being in Tifa's place, her thoughts, AND AERITH you just portrayed her perfectly. And Zack, Kunsel!Zack. I an out of words to tell you how much I loved them all.
Special place goes to Yuffie tho, kudos to you for being able to think up her lines, especially those nearing the last regarding Sephiroth. I'll have you know loud laughter at 1AM is not the proper norm... but screw the norm just this once I love reading stories like yours.
Where the romance is interspersed in various intensities and with humour and action and just the sheer blanch of Tifa's "What." I've adopted it as my common reaction while reading this cos it sums up every thing I'd thought of during that specific part. Right before laughing and/or gasping in horror.
But best scene? That last one when Cloud flicked Kunsel's forehead - LOVE IT. Partially cos it's still fresh in my mind, tho I'm sure when I reread this some time later I should make a compilation on all the precious, priceless things. Aaand mostly because it just screams possessiveness, *that kind* of possessiveness that only Cloud can do. ...If that even makes sense. Guh, Tifa. Cloud. /wipes happy tears/
I noticed a few typos and some commas missing, but it doesn't detract from the overall story so yah, everyone makes mistakes and we all learn.
(This is not the right place to say it but Avatar, your other piece? I'm really glad I chose that to reread when I got back to the fandom.)
Here's hoping your book is a success; and you might look back here and write another piece of Cloud/Tifa every now and then. :)) Cheers!

God Bless Cissnei, that poor soul
| Guest chapter 83 . 5/18/2014
The Lord of the Rings reference? Fuck yea!
| Guest chapter 78 . 5/17/2014
Hey, is Cissnei still important?
| Guest chapter 77 . 5/17/2014
Leon, I regret all the bad things I've typed in the past! You're totally not a douche now. You're actually being a Pretty Cool Guy.
Great fight scene
| Guest chapter 66 . 5/17/2014
Dunno why everyone seems to point to Cloud being a git in your ANs. The thought, "Tifa is being such an oblivious dumbass." has occurred to me more than once. Argh!
Funny chapter, though. Brings you right back to the blissful ignorance of childhood.

"That made her grin stupidly into the collar of her jacket and feel like hugging herself."
That was adorable!
| Guest chapter 61 . 5/17/2014
Lol, and what's with people not asking permission before just making out with someone.
I'll stop bugging about it. I suppose literature must have its allowances for "passion."
| Guest chapter 60 . 5/17/2014
God, Leon is such a fucking creep. Maybe it's the town I grew up in, I'm not sure, but I don't find his actions to be romantic in the least. It's invasive and assertive, which earns a guy a really bad rep where I'm from.
Good on Teef for gently telling him to kindly fuck off. If he does anything possessive and creepy again, I will scream.
| Guest chapter 58 . 5/16/2014
I hope Leon finds then and that he starts to cry.
| Guest chapter 53 . 5/16/2014
Fuck Leon for being so rapey. Attacking a woman with your mouth without her consent ain't cute.
It's a bit oblivious of her to figure it was only the, "shaking" that upset him. I'd think most people would assume that it's the fact that he attacked her with his mouth, then got creepily possessive and clingy when she tried to move away. That's what had me miffed.
