Just finished the final chapter and I only have one thing to say:MAKE THE &$ # sequel!
II've come across a lot of 'Zack lives' stories but this is the first one that I actually stuck with all the way to the end. It's well written, you've nailed the characters personalities dead on, and the changes made to the canon worked - even Stella!
So hurry up with the AC story, I wanna see if Aerith has a Heroic BSOD in the lifestream's wake. Yes that's the only reason I want a sequel, and yes I am that demented.

I know this is coming in very late regarding the 'what is Cloud?' debate, but isn't it just the power of teenage hormones? Isn't that the usual fallback explanation in Japan?

Oh dear... getting recruited into AVALANCHE can't be good... at all

Zack, I think that you're having a bit influence on dear Cloud here. Also, Tifa, if he didn't already like you I would have snatched him all for me a lot sooner! *giggles*

*swirling eyes* Fangirl-moment... oh ZackXAerith how I love that pairing... fangirl-moment...
| Nixie the Bloody Pixie chapter 2 . 1/10
Awww if I wasn't against yaoi I would totally have a fangirl-moment when they had that conversation!

I so rarely seem to review so much as offer opinions on things writers say in their AN's. u.u
Still reading this epic pile of awesome! But! I always thought of it as Holy combating the 'pull' of meteor. Figuring that anything that large naturally occurring would be visible passing even before the Black Materia 'called' it, so it had to supernatural in nature. Like the Comet materia, ya know? So with the Black Materia calling that big honkin hunk of rock into existence with the intent of crushing everything under and around it and Holy, which seems to exist purely to safeguard the planet in whichever way it chooses to manifest, both active at once, I figure they're working against each other. Unfortunately for Holy, Meteor is not the only problem, so it has to divide it's efforts between healing the Northern Crater, battling Jenova and Sephiroth and fighting the coming of Metero until such time as the threats are neutralized.

This is more in regards to the AN, though I have to say I'm absolutely loving the fic! Buuuut... I dunno where exactly the whole 'coming up for air' expression originates from, and I've never particularly felt the need to research it, I do have an opinion that it's based on the sometimes 'breathless' state that kisses of a certain amount of passion can leave you in. Not to say you need air at that moment, but when flushed with desire, your body is pumping itself full of endorphines and a light level of adrenaline, the combined effects tend to tighten the throat a touch and leave you taking in more oxygen with each breath, panting even.
On a literal basis though, the only time I've ever had to 'come up for air' was when I was kissing while my nose was completely stuffed up .

The reason heights would be changed between English and Japanese translations is based on the standard heights in each culture. In Japan, six foot is considered fairly tall. In America and the Western hemisphere, six foot is average or slightly above average. The change in height was likely to make Zack taller on average. It'd be weird to have a short SOLDIER, wouldn't it?
As to the story, decent so far. I'd appreciate a little more imagery and attention to detail, but I imagine I'm 129 chapters too late with that suggestion.

I look forward to the sequel as I can see a few threads that were left hanging. I enjoyed your attention to detail and the variations that came up throughout. I probably would've liked it even more if it had veered rather than closely following the cannon in most instances, but it is nice to see the reactions and slight variations caused by Zack and Kunsel and then Aerith surviving as well as the changes in the characterization that came from Cloud remembering Zack from the very beginning.

Not what i expected but good job on the story.
If youre making a sequel then i can't wait to read that. Is it going to be your version of Advent Children by chance?
And Zack kept his secret for another day, well not from Vincent and Kunsel XD

I'd been holding out on using break so why didn't he use Healing Wave
