Lady Gunblade created a beautiful and amazing promo video on YouTube that focuses on Zack and Cloud's insecurities. The song is just ... so sad and perfect. Makes me tear up, actually. Anyway, go here to watch, rate, favorite and comment!:

EDIT 07-08-2011: YouTube is a total douchebag and blocked the video recently because of copyright issues. It says it's blocked in "your country" (USA) so I'm not sure if people from other countries can still watch it. You can try watching it with the link below, but it might not work regardless. I'll speak with Lady Gunblade and see if I can, with her permission, upload the video to my Photobucket account for those who want to watch it. I am so bummed!

So much love and thanks to them all! I'm honored that something that I've written inspired these talented people to share with us their passion for their art, and for my story. Whenever I have a bad day, or writer's block, revisting these pieces from these amazing friends helps me through my day. I honestly can't thank them enough!

In-Progress: Malady - After a four year long hiatus (hahahaghaskgfasdfas) I've finally gotten off my rump to continue the story. I can't give exact dates as to when the next chapters will be out, but let's just hope it's not another four years until the next one. /dead
