"Have courage and be kind." Cinderella

After many years I have returned, however eternally locked out of my old account. Starting over anew, one story at a time. My focus will primarily be Cloud and Tifa. I post my progress often in my profile, so if there is a particular story you are looking forward to, check below, message me or write a review on my story.


Yes, I am still here and creating! July 2021

Being in a frontline household for COVID-19 has been very stressful. I'm working on a new story for Cloti for Endless Summer 2021 while working on some old favorites at the same time. Be My Last will be an AU from a certain time period, between 10-15 chapters.

Story Updates for Don't Think Twice:

I have not given up on my main story.

I’m working on the plot for the next arc, and while I’m writing, I won’t be updating. Some of it is currently in beta form and you’ll be plenty fed when this story makes a BIG comeback. There are more details/big hints about the next arc at the end of Chapter 20. I appreciate your patience and understanding on the hiatus for my main series. Recently I got artwork done by the very Sreliata on DeviantArt/Twitter for the new cover.

I also applied a few minor details for Chapter I-XIX. Mostly added timestamps and dates to make the timeline more clear when everything happened, but also to hint more at how bad Cloud and Tifa's last encounter went down before he left her for good.

The next arc will be plenty of Cloti goodness for you all! I'm so happy with all the compliments on the story and messages from readers/fans anticipating the next update. It will six chapters, with one chapter posted once a week consecutively until in full. This is for a reason and I cannot do it any other way.

Wherever You Will Go by NadejdaHope reviews
That exact moment made Cloud realized how much he was in love with the woman that had put up so much with him but had never ever gave up on him. So, he snaked his hands to her shoulders and stopped her movements at once and Tifa's head snapped up to look at him. Did Cloud finally get angry? "If I could make YOU mine. I'll go wherever you will go." Major Cloti fluff.

Broken Hearts and Maladies by Marjorie Franklin reviews
Technically, Cloud still lived there and Tifa held onto that fact for dear life. She'd gotten it in her head that if he was sleeping there, then he was still part of their family. Everyone being under one roof meant something—at least that was what she convinced herself. No, things weren't that great but they were together. Tifa just didn't know how much longer that would last.
