coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)

Canon: Final Fantasy VII
Pairing: Zack Fair/Cloud Strife
Canon Level: Friends

Somewhere about halfway through Final Fantasy VII, I was so thoroughly confused by what in the world was going on with the plot that I decided to go read fic in the hopes of clearing things up. (It certainly wouldn't have been able to make my confusion any worse.) And promptly fell down the Cloud/Zack hole but good. I like Zack's friendliness and general happy-go-lucky attitude, but it's his complete devotion to the people he cares about that really gets to me--and Cloud is definitely one of those people. I feel like it's only natural that Cloud would be drawn Zack's bright spirit. And the thing that makes them work for me is that Cloud has just as much devotion as Zack, only it's a little harder to see at first. I feel like Zack was able to see a smidgen of that (one of the few who did see Cloud's true strengths), was intrigued, and determined that he had to get to know Cloud.

Part 1 is now done and clocks in at just over 20k. I've gone over it slightly to change things to make more sense, but I'm afraid to look at it too much in case I find it's utterly horrible and nonsensical. I don't think it is, but I also acknowledge that I am completely lacking in objectivity towards this thing.

Anywho, onto Part 2! Which will probably be even longer but needs to get written because I adore two of the scenes I want in it, one of which may end up being the last scene of this part. So far I've got about a thousand words.

(And if I end up not writing Part 2 for some reason, there will probably be a very long, very angry rant about how much I hate the "shovel talk". Haaaaaaate so goddamned much.)

Oh dear god, this thing is nearing 20k words, and I can't figure out how to end it. And even when I do, this is just part one of three, and parts two and three will probably be even longer. I just hope I have the stamina to complete it all because I love this thing so danged much, but it refuses to ever end....

I finished playing Final Fantasy VII at the beginning of the month, and it's sort of taken over my brain. In ways I didn't expect! Like, Cloud is really not the typical type of character I go for. He's way more angsty and guilt-ridden. (Zack is very much the type of character I generally go for, but he's barely in the game.) But I keep watching AMVs going "Cloud's hair is so pretty caked in blood" which what? When has that ever been something I have gone for in fictional characters?

And! I came out of the game pretty firmly shipping Aerith/Zack/Cloud. I am not used to OT3s, much less ones where spoilers. ) And there's something deliciously painful about most fic featuring these three that I am eating up with a spoon, but there is also a reason why I tend to prefer the fluffy domestic end of the spectrum.

It is all very conflicting and confusing!

Which is probably what has led me to write 7,500 words of fix-it fic/not-fic that is somehow not even close to being finished. (It just keeps growing.) And I'm really enjoying what I'm writing so I kind of want to post it if I finish it, but I am also soooo far from objective about it. I am sure it is in English and not completely unreadable grammatically (and has paragraph breaks!), and that is about it. So that is also very confusing and conflicting.

I feel like I need more exclamation points to properly express my feelings about these developments: !!!!!!!
