| Zaer chapter 16 . 4/6
This story is such a treat! Your hard work and writing skills entertained me for hours (I tend to obsess over a few lines or paragraphs when I find them particulary good/touching/funny etc., and therefore actually need hours for "short" stories). Thank you for this awesome Zack and his adventures! I would be thrilled to read more, or at least some rewitten chapters should you ever choose to continue this story. Have a nice day!

Zack actually be the youngest SOLDIER 1st class, ever, actually - Sephiroth logically holds that title. (and not just because he was probably the SOLDIER prototype for non-DeepGround SOLDIERS.)
Sephiroth' birth year was never actually /stated/ in canon materials, which give you a 'rough' range from [u] 1975-1980. Thing is, 1975 would make him older than CID, and by 1980 Dr. Gast LEFT Shinra. Given thatt he did know Gast in his youth, and had Gast made a strong enough impression that he respected Gast over Hojo - I tend to set Seph's b. year at around [u] 1977.
Wutai War ended in [v] 0001, before that it's not clear whether [u] 2000 [v] 0000 was the same year. Again, in canon materials there's conflicting info on the LENGTH of the Wutai war - it's either 8 or 10 years long, which means it started either in [u]1990 or [u]1992. Wutai War is what made Seph's fame as a war hero and inspired Angeal Genesis to enlist. (Genesis especially, in CC you can read his diary gushing over how a BOY HIS AGE was a hero and how he wanted to treat Sephiroth to dumbapples. XD)
Even using 1975 as a birth year, it'd make Seph 15 at most, the year the War starts. And give Angeal and Genesis enough time to enlist and train and become prominent 1st classd SOLDIERs after Sephiroth - he needs to have made his name by [u] 1994 at the latest, which means he'd be 19 - and to have /that/ much control over Shinra forces, at least 1st Class, and possibly have been oven ne for at least a year.
And given how expensive SOLDIERs were to make, it's very likely Seph was the first SOLDIER of his year with only a few small smattering candidates alongside. This also without taking Sephiroth's own motivations in ADVANCING asap in the Shinra military, because the better he did more time away from the labs and Hojo. Given how much of a type-A perfectionist he seems to be (pure survival habit turned trait from under Hojo, probably), I can't see him taking longer than he had to, to make 1st Class.

I'm just going to review as I go slong just so I won't forget. I also see that this is an old, un-updated fic, but there are some things that bug me that I just can't go without saying. First off, what's up with Ms. Godess? Given she's not really a talker in the first place, I think you could at least have given her lines like, you know, a godess? "keep Sephiroth from going crazy" for example. That sounds like something Zack would say, not an immortal and regal being. Makes things... weird, to read.
"so he decided to enjoy his shower." Um.. if he's in so much shock wouldn't he be sitting stupified on his bed wondering just how she managed the time pull?
"Congratulations. You are now SOLDIER Second Class." ... I'm positive it wouldn't be that easy. A simulated feild mission like in the begining of Crisis Core would have been much more appropiate. Now, I know you mentioned you never played FFVII, but honestly I'm basing everything off of C.C. only right now.
Well, that's all I really gotta say. I love time travel, and I think each fic has it's own flavor, seeing Zack re-write history seems like a fun thing given that it's usually Cloud.

Okay I got two question at this point.
1. How does one go from Corporel to Major General? That's what 17 ranks?
2. How is him being 14 an excuse for Cloud being infantile? When he was 8 he dropped of a mountain and got by on skinned knees, that same tumble would knock 18 year old SOLDIER First Class Zack Fair clean out we see this in the flashback. Cloud wasn't popular but he was never bullied (save by Tifa's da perhaps), he mentions that he picked most of the fights in his youth. And Before Crisis and FFVII tells us Cloud is a natural with a sword.

Aw man! I want to know what happens next! Oh well, I'll just have to read the rewrite.
I kinda feel for Zack. He may have just made things worse for Cloud. And that was a really nasty way for Angeal to die. Okay, maybe not as nasty as the way he died the first time around, but still.

And FINISHED! Though ah.. I erred within my last review toward "Hollow Men" *sweatdrops* o_o; I apologize for that. These review windows should be bigger.. *ignores concious saying that she CAN make them bigger*
But ANYWAY.. That was, indeed, pretty kickass- if I do say so myself. Though Angeal kinda died, and that was utterly unexpected.. (Plot twist I suppose?) And then Cloud is still kind of moody..
I suppose more Angst than Sci-Fi? o_o;
Though, regardless you did pretty well. But lets see what you can do the second time around- seeing as the time-travel idea is still really good. But like I said- Characterization!
Kudos then. ;

I love it!

Zack traveling back in time is quite different from all those "Cloud gets sent back" scenarios. I feel bad for the poor 14 year old, but hopefully with some help from Zack he'll improve and make it to SOLDIER. It's clear that Zack cannot save everyone but I'm crossing my fingers he'll be there for Sephiroth when the general needs it the most.
