Generals Kant and Nietzsche? Wasn't Immuanel Kant the philosopher who talked about life being "nasty, brutish, and short"? Nietzsche was the one who said that "when you stare into the abyss, the abyss stares back into you".

Everytime I read the part with Vincent's dress up, I always end up bursting into laughter. Such a good part of such an awesome and great story!

I have to admit, your story inspired me to use "Shotgun" as my extra female Turk character in my own "butterfly-effect" story. Before Crisis is incredibly fun source material to work with, and it's a pity the game never saw any initial release in the U.S. Maybe in a couple years for the 20th anniversary.
Anyway, you managed to make Freya/Freyra/Shotgun's death every bit as powerful as Aerith's was in the original game. You were able to perfectly preserve that same bittersweet victory that you feel while playing the original game, which is summed up perfectly in Cait Sith's fortune: "What you pursue will be yours, but you will lose something dear." That takes a lot of talent. I'm rather surprised your reviews aren't numbering into the 1000's range, especially since this is a completed work.
Your taking Avalanche and morphing it into something completely different was genius. I can't help but notice that whenever Zack survives in a fanfiction, he ends up bringing together a lot more people to help Cloud and co. out. The original game killed off a lot of important roles: the magnetic hero(Zack), the wise, serious veteran(Angeal), the technology genius(Jessie) and the healer(Aerith). The survival of three of those people really turned the story on its head, and I liked that a lot. I also commend you for your attention to detail regarding the altered timeline. Priscilla being killed was tragic, but inevitable with Cloud not being there on the day she was attacked by that monster.
I hope you write another story one day, but can understand if you're probably wanting to rest right now. You worked hard on this masterpiece, and I salute you.

I remember finding this fanfiction while it was still only a couple chapters in and thinking it sounded pretty cool. I don't know how, but I didn't read it, probably because I just assumed it would follow the same path that all interesting-ish fanfiction goes: not update (notmentioningmyowntrackrecord).
Surprise surprise when I found it 3 days ago and ended up binge reading it all.
It was, well, pretty cool! It kept me interested, the original characters weren't too overbearing, and I have nothing against the "everyone lives" (mostly) path the story took.

Overkill. Genesis could solo Weiss and Nero if Nero doesn't use his dark mist-y thing
| Guest chapter 56 . 2/23
Sephiroth, Angeal, Genesis, Cloud, Zack, and Vincent vs Weiss, Nero, Shelke, Argento, Rosso, and Azul, who would win?

I just love this so, so, SO much. Wish it was a real thing, except that I wanted Freya to continue to live. You made her my favorite BC Turk, and your choice of her name suits her perfectly.
