Changing Spaces, Off and Running, Hatred at First Sight
Haven’t posted here before but I couldn’t let a chance to blame more things on icedark_elf slip up – besides, Aus and I are…good friends. *smile*
Title: Changing Spaces Characters/Pairings: Vincent, Zack, Cloud Team: AVALANCHE Rating: PG Word Count: 100 Author's Notes: A what-might-or-might-not-happen scene from the AU Butterfly Effect/shameless pimp
While he had known it inevitable, Vincent’s decline into old age and infirmity had caused Cloud more than a few sleepless nights. Whatever Hojo had done to keep his unofficial father young had failed, causing Vincent to age abnormally fast. It had been hard for Zack to watch Cloud spend night after night by the former Turk’s bedside. The raven haired man shook the blond. “Come on Cloud – lets get some breakfast.” Red eyes looked up at him – and not in the tired sense. “Shit, Cloud, what happened?”
“Vin’s dead. Chaos had to go someplace. Who else?”

It wasn’t fair, Zack thought as he packed his belongings quickly. He had gotten to know Seph and Aeris for a few months and then they had vanished, brother, sister, their parents and their uncle, without any trace.
Grabbing his bag, the eleven year old walked out of Gongaga, and hailed a nearby trading caravan. “Got room for one more?”
“Small thing like you, sure.” The man in charge said, eyeing Zack. “Provided you help out.”
“Where are you headed?”
“Nibelheim. That suit?”
It was as good of a place as any to start looking, without any clues. “Sure.”
Title: Hatred at First Sight Characters/Pairings: Zack, Cloud – yes, you read that right.

It’s hard to snippet without giving too much away, but this scene is so counter fandom I couldn’t resist.
The kid was surprisingly fast for someone who had just turned fifteen and wasn’t enhanced, Zack mused silently. Cloud Strife had just won a bout against two other members of the Shinra Defense Force– unarmed, while the others had used blunt practice blades.
“Hey, kid, ever think of joining SOLDIER?” Zack called out as Strife left the gym. “They would take you in a second.”
Blue eyes glared at him. “Not interested.”
Zack frowned, confused – and curious. He was going to find out why Cloud didn’t like him, or perhaps it was really SOLDIER. One way or another.
