First and LastThe air that blew through the Sector Seven slums was thick with smog, hot and filled with the stench of rotting garbage. The weather reports had said that it was about to rain up on the Plate right now, but that didn't matter; none of the rainwater ever reached the slums except what drained down from the sewer lines above, and by then it was too filthy to do anyone any good.
As the clouds continued to gather above the steel surface of the Plate on which Midgar sat, a young girl in a long pink dress slowly made her way down the overcrowded streets, twisting a curl of reddish-brown hair around her finger as she went. She was careful to keep out of the artificial light as much as she could while she strode down the empty alleyways on the way to the outskirts of town; she wasn't technically supposed to be here right now, so it was best that as few people as possible spotted her. When she finally reached the ancient church that sat on its own near the edge of Sector Seven, Aerith breathed a
The Measure of a Man: Chapter 09"Tseng, come in. Tseng, can you hear me?"
The Head Turk sighed tiredly, picking up his radio at the sound of General Hewley's voice and holding it up near his lips. "Loud and clear, General. We are still unable to take off in the choppers until the storm lets up." He wasn't lying, either; he wanted to find Zack and Cloud, too, but if they took off now the helicopters would likely be blown into the sides of the mountains. Besides which, the visibility would be so obscured by the enormous snowflakes that there would be little chance of spotting the two from the air anyway, especially in the middle of the night.
"I understand. I'm just radioing in to report that we've reached Point 035 and are going to continue south from there. We expect to reach Point 043 by morning. You can meet us there if the storm has passed."
"Understood. Tseng, out." Sighing again, Tseng returned the radio to its proper place, settling back in his seat in the cockpit of the chopper and waiting for the instant he c
The Measure of a Man: Chapter 10"Cid, what are you doing all the way out here? I thought you were supposed to have left already, too," Cloud asked, adrenaline still rushing through his veins while he gathered Zack up off of the ground.
"I was getting' ready to fly outta here this mornin'. My Tiny Bronco – that's the plane I built and got down here with – is tied down just past those trees there. I released Rima this morning to go back to whatever Chocobo flock she's part of, and I was on my way back to the clearing when I heard someone screamin' like crazy out here. Turns out it was you. And yer damn lucky that blizzard held me up a whole day, too; looks like yer friend's in bad shape."
"He is," Cloud said in a near-whisper, adjusting his grip on Zack when he started to cough again. "He's got pneumonia, and it's gotten really bad in a really short time." Cid shoved his hands in his pockets, spitting his cigarette out into the snow and grinding it out so the smoke wouldn't drift into Zack's face. "Is there
Of Puppies and Plates"Aww, geez," Zack groaned as he covered his nose with one hand for what must have been the fiftieth time that morning. "I think I'm gonn- ah… Achoo! Guh… Sneeze again." He sniffled and wiped his nose with the tissue Angeal handed him, tossing it into the trash to join its ten friends who had already been used that day. Once he was sure he wasn't going to be attacked by another sneeze for the moment, he picked his dust rag up off of the floor and began cleaning the shelf in front of him again, being sure to hold his breath when he raised up another dust cloud. "Remind me how I got roped into this 'spring cleaning' thing again, Angeal. Isn't Genesis supposed to be the one helping, since he, y'know, lives here too?"
"Yes, well…" Angeal said slowly, running a hand back through his hair before returning to the task of watering his many hanging plants. "Getting Genesis to help clean anything is usually more trouble than it's worth."
"But then why's he making you do it? W
KaaN Chapter 01 - Testing of PatienceAngeal Hewley was a very calm person, possibly the most laid-back and even-tempered man in all of SOLDIER. At thirty-three years old, the dark-haired First had already learned what mattered most to him in the world and what wasn't worth worrying over, and by now there wasn't much that could truly faze him. That fact was the primary reason he had been assigned to Zack Fair as a mentor three years ago, rather than Sephiroth or Genesis. Sephiroth, despite being the strongest person in SOLDIER and possibly on the Planet, had absolutely no people skills and knew nothing about dealing with overactive nineteen-year-olds. Genesis, well… He was more likely to kill Zack for interrupting his readings of LOVELESS than actually teach him anything.
Angeal chuckled to himself, remembering some of the many incidents over the years that had gotten Zack into trouble repeatedly and earned him the nickname "Puppy. The young SOLDIER was a true test of his mentor's patience, for sure, but Angeal woul
KaaN Chapter 02 - Here, Kitty Kitty...Angeal was very quickly beginning to doubt the wisdom of his decision to ask Genesis and Sephiroth for help with this unexpected situation. So far, neither had contributed anything but hysterical laughter and a stony scowl, respectively. Zack, meanwhile, had simply laid himself down on the floor and set his head on his paws, waiting with an unusual level of patience while the other three Firsts tried to puzzle out what to do about the suddenly canine SOLDIER.
"Ahaha! Aha… Ahem… Y'know," Genesis said, wiping his eyes when he finally managed to get his laughter under control. "I think I may actually like him better this way. At least now he has an excuse for having all the class and civility of a dog. And he looks better, too." Zack curled his lip and snorted at Genesis from his position by Angeal's feet, shifting his body so that his tail end was facing the redhead. The Crimson General merely rolled his eyes and chose to ignore it.
"Whether you like him this way or not isn
KaaN Chapter 03 - Don't Touch!"How in the world did I end up on pet-sitting duty?" Sephiroth grumbled to himself from his seat on Angeal's living room sofa. The Silver General wasn't sure exactly what had happened to land him there; all he knew was that after managing to pry Minerva's claws from Zack's nose and calm down a murderously angry Genesis, Angeal had all but bolted from the room, taking Genesis with him and shouting for Sephiroth to take Zack back to his apartment as he went.
Sephiroth sighed, glaring icily at Zack as if all of this was his fault – which, in a way, it was. Zack simply ignored the dark look, too busy sniffing around the room for something to chew on to care. He may have been a human on the inside, but his newfound dog instincts were very quickly beginning to come into play. Sighing at the less-than-dignified way his fellow First was now sniffing his way around the apartment, the silver-haired man picked up the newspaper Angeal had discarded earlier, scanning it for something that mig
"Just a minute!"
It was Christmas day, and Aerith was waiting patiently for Zack to come and get her. The couple had been spending any time together they could, and since Zack had been pretty busy with his work in SOLDIER lately every minute of spare time he had counted.
A few days ago he told her that all ShinRa employees got Christmas day off, and asked her if it would ok to take her above the plate for something. She was pretty nervous about seeing the sky for the first time, but he told her there wasn't anything to be afraid of. She knew that as long as he was with her it would be alright, so she agreed to go.
When she heard a knock at the door that afternoon she quickly pulled on her brown winter boots along with her light pink petticoat with matching lavender scarf and mittens, then opened the door to see her boyfriend outside smiling as he waited for her. He was still in his SOLDIER First Class uniform, but had taken off his suspenders and shoulder pads, and wore a violet winter
