BOOM badoom boom boom … badoom ba—
“Tifa!”
If she closed her eyes and imagined real hard, she could block out the voice of her mother calling from downstairs, and hear in her head the beat of the imaginary drum. For two or three years, now, she’d been using her blankets to practice, and her upper arm strength and body control were frankly amazing. She lived for gross motor skills.
“Tifa!”
Every time her mother walked in, her blankets were in hasty disarray, and she was out of breath. She probably thought --
“Time for piano lessons!”
BOOM! “I hate the piano!”

Character: Cloud
Team: AVALANCHE
Word count: 100

People were losing hope.
Crops weren’t growing. Fruit trees were keeping some places alive, along with eggs and dairy, but seeds had stopped sprouting. Meat was growing scarcer by the day. No new pregnancies had been reported in months.
People were dying younger now. You didn’t see old people any more, and anyone over thirty looked weary and desperate. Cloud felt weary and desperate, too.
The people had lost hope. Everyone had, since the mako had run out.
Cloud woke wanting to scream, rigidly forcing himself not to. He could work with AVALANCHE one more time, to stop the nightmares.

Title: Hot Shot
Challenge: Toys
Character: Cloud, Yuffie, Vincent (and Jesse by mention)
Team: AVALANCHE
Word count: 100

“C’mon, Vincent! Share!”

“This is my toy, Yuffie.” He turned it over in his hands, admiring the sleek lines, the deathly glow.

Cloud should have known better than to ask Jesse if it could be done. It was begging for trouble between Yuffie and Vincent, and that trouble was brewing fast. Still, it was a work of art. The real mistake had been not making Jesse promise it to him, but she deserved the chance to show it off. He just hoped they didn’t hurt each other fighting over it.

It was beautiful. It was a pistol, made of materia.

Title: Not again ...
Challenge: Gender Bending
Character: Cloud, Yuffie
Team: AVALANCHE
Word count: 100

She was locked in that prison somewhere, and he didn’t have time to call for backup. He didn’t feel like fighting through the halls step by step, and the only thing he had to go on was that the warden was widely known to be a sleaze. Damn Yuffie! If she were willing to act like a girl, he wouldn’t have to rescue her.

“Cloud,” he muttered to himself, “one of these days you’re going to have to quit saving the world.”

It was Avalance all over again. It was Wall Market all over again. He slipped into his dress.

Title: After the Rescue
Character: Jesse
Team: Avalanche
Word count: 100

Jesse pulled off her boots and socks slowly. Her ankle still hurt where it had been caught in the grate. Her leg still burned from the touch of his fingers.

She pulled off her shirt, imagining his hands on her sides. She could feel his palms stroke her hips as her pants fell to the floor. Her fingernails (his!) dug into her thighs, scratching upward, twined through her pubic hair.

She couldn't quite grip hard enough to match the strength she knew was in his arms. She tied her blanket around her chest and upper arms, tight. It would do.

Title: The Race
Characters: Aerith
Team: Avalanche
Word Count : 100

There is deadly danger following her, and catastrophe ahead. Quite literally, the fate of the Planet hinges upon her. Will she be in time to be effective through her own actions? If not, has she planted the right seed in the right soil? Cloud ... the one who can be The One, he lacks the commitment. Avalanche ... the ones who are driven, they lack the means. If he doesn't love the Planet enough, does he love her enough? Or does he love the other, Tifa, enough to do it for her?

She steps out of the pool and dresses, still wondering.

Title: Prosperity Through Positive Thinking
Characters: Aerith
Team: Avalanche
Word Count: 100

She knelt on the floor of the church, closed her eyes, and silently gave gratitude to the planet for making her plants grow. Eyes still shut tight, she sang softly. Her voice barely carried past the edge of the flowerbed, but it didn't need to go any further to reach her audience.

She opened her eyes, leaned forward, and carefully selected flowers, one by one. As she plucked each bloom, she whispered a quiet "Thank you," bestowed a brief smile upon it, and put it in her basket.

She wanted the flowers to be happy. Nobody would buy unhappy flowers.

"No, thanks, Yuffie." Cloud returned his gaze to the tree in the distance.

"What?! You're ... REFUSING a gift ... a HUGE PERSONAL SACRIFICE from me? You know how important materia is to me, and you REJECT ME like this?!"

"Bought materia's bad luck, stolen even worse. You find it yourself, or win it in battle. Otherwise, it's never really yours. It'll let you down when you need it most."

Yuffie looked down consideringly at the small crystal in her hand. Then she said quietly and menacingly, "Oh, you'll pay for this, all right. If you want a battle, you'll get it."

Title: Full Plastic Jacket
Characters: Barrett, Tifa
Team: Avalanche
Word Count: 100

"Why's it always gotta be a fuckin' gun? Ev'rything I put on this damn' arm, all it's good for is blowin' some damn' thing up." SLAM! Barrett pounded on the scarred table, splintering it yet again.

"There's a doctor over on Wall who does all kinds of things with prosthetics. What do you want?" Tifa asked.

Three days later, Barrett walked out the front door of a nondescript building in Wall Market. He looked at the shiny new keyboard attached to his arm. "Shit, man, you better watch out in those chat rooms. Barrett ready to Plug and fuckin' Play!"

Title: Where Do You Find These Things?
Characters/Pairings: Jesse, Tifa
Team: Avalanche
Word Count: 100

Jesse held her concentration long enough to finish the joint she was making, then slotted the iron into its holder. After a brief glance at her computer, she flicked her eyes to Tifa and asked "What's up?"

"Oh, nothing much. Couldn't sleep. Making another bomb?"

"Of course!" Jesse smiled. "You won't catch me using fists. A girl could get hurt that way."

Overcome by a sudden bout of curiosity, Tifa asked "Where do you find all these things? Is there some kind of bomb plan shop or something?"

"Search engine," Jesse answered, pointing at her computer. "Never heard of Moogle?"
