A/N: Now, what monstrously cheesy thing might I say to give credence to the inspiration of this magnificent idea? This fic is dedicated to the character who has retained a significant place in my imagination for the past decade. XD

Disclaimer: I do not own any part of the FFVII Compilation and its related characters. I do not wish to own them, as the accounting and legal responsibilities would probably make me hate them. How unfortunate...However, I am very interested in borrowing them for this fic. So, without further ado...

.

"Stay where you belong, in my memories…"

"I will…never be a memory…"

.

...

...

"Everything? Very well…Cloud…"
