Updated: - 30th July 2017

I'm back, and with a new look!

Work in Progress updated!

I can only apologise for my prolonged absences. My health is very much dire and it takes a lot of energy for me to write, let alone get up and go about my daily life. I am not giving up on The Call For Order. Frankly, the only way I would give up on it is if I died before it was finished. I know it's taking an incredible amount of time between updates, but please bear with me and my aches and pains.

Thank you so much for checking in, whoever you are. Don't worry - I'm still around!

The Call For Order Forum: I've made a Forum for my story, it holds a few goodies like a World Map and special chapters. You can find it, here.

Time Difficulties: My job involves ten-hour graveyard shifts. When I'm not working, I'm sleeping. Writing is something I manage to get in maybe an hour or so at a time, so please be patient with me!

The Call For Order FAQ: (This will be expanded on and updated the more queries I get.)

Q: When and where exactly does The Call For Order take place within the Final Fantasy VII Universe and Compilation Series?

A: The Call For Order occurs three years after the events of Final Fantasy VII. This is actually the timeline where Dirge of Cerberus (DoC) is set, HOWEVER. In the Call For Order, it treats the events of Advent Children (AC) and DoC like they never happened, along with other subsequent games like Crisis Core. Elements have been borrowed, for example, Vincent wielding his Cerberus gun from DoC and the team wearing their AC outfits, but plot wise the story will be setting out on its own path. Leaves a bit of surprise I hope.

Q: What's the song that's in Chapter Twelve and Twenty-One?

A: The song in Chapter Twelve is Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root, while the one in Chapter Twenty-One is Love Power by Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers. Just a disclaimer to say that any and all songs used in my story belong to their respective artists and/or rights holders. Please go and support them!

Q: How are some people getting previews of the next chapter before it's been posted live?

A: This is something I started doing from Chapter Twelve and onwards. People who leave a review will get a sneak preview of the next chapter before it's posted live. This is my personal way of saying thank you to those kind enough to take time out of their busy day to let me know what they think.

Q: Where on Earth is Cloud?!

A: Sorry, this always makes me laugh! I get so many people asking me this! Well, keep reading the story and you'll eventually find out. I don't want to spoil anything but I can certainly reassure you I haven't forgotten about him.

Q: So, Vincent and Tifa... are they going to get together in this?

A: I've been asked this in greater frequency as of late. Well, the big giveaway is in the story tags. I won't give anything more than that! I guess you'll have to keep reading as I write!

Q: Will you ever stop being such a secretive, eluding ass?

A: Probably not! (Laughs) I'm sorry. (I'm not.)

And as always, thanks for reading!

Three years after Meteorfall, the leader of the World Regenesis Organisation, Reeve Tuesti, gives AVALANCHE the job of clean-up duty for the world. However, the slow process of healing the Planet would have dire consequences and a terrible price to pay for one Vincent Valentine. (Valenhart.)
