The knock on the door was hesitant. Gillian frowned slightly, but stood up and went to answer it. She was tired of all the people different reactions of the people in the village, both the pity and the avoidance that made her want to scream her son wasn't contagious.

Dying, perhaps, but not contagious.

When she answered the door, she was surprised to look down to see Genesis Rhapsodos there.

"Angeal is...very sick, Genesis. He can't play."

He gave her a serious look. "I know. I heard. I came to see him."

"He..." she began, then let him in.

"You owe me," Genesis said. His voice was low and serious.

"What?" Angeal said, his jaw dropping. "Genesis, look, this is too far. You can't seriously ask me to go AWOL!"

"I'm not asking," Genesis shot back, his eyes narrowing. "I'm telling."

"And I'm telling you no," Angeal said, feeling his own eyes narrow in response.

"I can't stay here. You swore you wouldn't leave me alone again. But here you are," he let out, and wrapped his arms around himself. "You're like everyone. I thought you car--fuck."

Angeal felt the words like a slap, and his shoulders slumped.

Rating: PG
Prompt: New Beginnings
Character: Tifa
Team: Avalanche

Tifa had always been a good girl.  She hadn't quite managed "ladylike," but she'd always done what she'd been told, been polite and stayed out of trouble.

"She's a handful," her father said once, "but she's a good girl."

She'd tried so hard to please him as much as she could, even if she just couldn't on some things, like training and going off on her own in the mountains. Wild, but a good girl.

She stared out the window of the hospital room, stomach bandaged and throbbing, saw the ShinRa building, and decided it was time to be bad.

Genesis walked out of the bookstore, avidly reading his book, and the people of Banora shook their heads.

"Look there he goes,
That boy is so peculiar,
I wonder if he's feeling well?" a group of men sang.

"With a dreamy, far-off look,
And his nose stuck in a book,
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Gen!" they finished.

Genesis ignored them, settling down, then pointed excitedly.

"Oh, isn't this amazing?
It's my favorite part because you'll see
Here's the promise of Her Gift
But they won't discover what it is until part three!" he sang.

Film: The Curse of the Golden Flower

Sephiroth fought.

It was a battle he was doomed to lose; he had known it was doomed from the instant he had taken up his mother's emblem of the golden chrysanthemum. He had made his choice, and his choice was his mother, not the emperor.

He fought in her doomed attempt to undermine Hojo; set Sephiroth on the throne and depose both Hojo and Crown Prince Genesis (he would not think of the rumors; whispers of incest between Jenova and her eldest son, though he was another woman's child). Blood and steel flashed in the night sky, and Sephiroth fought.

Cloud ran into the elevator and all but slammed his fist into the floor number and the shut button, then collapsed against the wall, shutting his eyes tightly and trying to convince himself none of what he had seen had been real.

And because his eyes were closed, he didn't see Denzel, pale and dead-eyed, staring at him on every floor.

Cloud ran to his apartment, to his room, feeling like everything had been a bad dream. Home was home; safe. No ghosts, no--

He crawled into bed, relieved, then felt--no--

He lifted the sheets and Jenova smiled.

Tifa panted, her breaths coming desperate and quick. She'd slammed the door shut, the windows were closed, there was no way in here.

Safe. She was safe. She had to be safe here.

She hadn't believed it, hadn't thought for a second that stupid urban legend about the video could possibly be true...but then they'd all died, just now, everyone in front of her. She was all that was left, her seven days was up...

No. She was safe here. She was.

The TV blared to life, flicking and showing a silver-haired man.

Then Sephiroth crawled through the TV.

The king beat the drum madly, strands of his long silver hair slipping loose, and Zack tried his best to humor him, playing as madly to keep up.

And then the drum broke, and the king tossed it aside with a smirk, his green eyes wide. Then the king went abruptly still, and his eyes went sharp as he looked around, clearly seeking something - or rather, someone - out.

"Cloud. Where is Cloud?" the king said. Cloud hesitantly stood from where he'd hid himself behind the puppetry stage, and Zack didn't like the obsessive possessiveness he saw bloom on Sephiroth's face.

"I know because I did it," Angeal said, the words sounded tortured. "Plant an idea, inception, I did it. And it was a mistake," he said, digging his hands in his hair.

Zack stared at Angeal, not comprehending. "You did? With who? How?!"

A muscle in Angeal's jaw twitched, and he looked so defeated. "With Genesis. It was the only way. But I didn't think...I didn't know, it would resonate so much, back when we finally woke up."

He looked so tortured. "Why do you think he was so obsessed with the goddess?" he whispered, and suddenly, Zack understood.

"Angeal's being shipped back to Midgar," Genesis said tersely.

Sephiroth rubbed his temple, glad Genesis couldn't see it.

"He's being shunted sideways. They can't demote him. So they're sending him to baby-sit baby SOLDIERs," Genesis said disgustedly. "Why?"

"Someone has to train the new recruits. He'll be good at it."

"There's no glory in that! And I need him here!"

"I know," Sephiroth said softly.

"...you did this. Why?!"

"Have you spoken to him lately?"

"No. Gwongnaam's still hot."

"I have," Sephiroth said. And it's because the war won't kill him, he thought. What it has done is worse.

"Oh, good. You're awake," a man in glasses says, and smiles.

Cloud blinks, slowly, but can't manage more than that, and not only because he's strapped down to a table.

The man picks up a needle and taps to clear air from it.

"You somehow managed to terminate my greatest experiment, something I wouldn't have thought possible of anyone, let alone a trooper. Was it just S's failing, or something about you?

"I'd hate for all my hard work to be for nothing," the man says and injects the needle into Cloud's arm, and Cloud learns he can still scream.

A/N: This takes place pre-CC, during the war in Wutai. Which was not, in my mind, kind to Angeal. :(

-

If he casts Curaga now; casts until he's dry, she'll live.

The girl - no more than seven - is alive. Angeal has no idea how it's possible; she's covered in burns from the flames, so much her flesh is charred black and cracked.

If he casts Curaga now, she'll survive for the medics to come. They'll care for her. Then...she'll be a disfigured war orphan, neither of which Wutai are kind to.

If he casts Curaga now, she'll live. And so Angeal does not.

But he sees her face every night after, in his dreams of war and ash.

It has been three hours and forty-three minutes.

There are still roughly four hours and seventeen to go before they arrive in Gwongnaam.

For the last three hours of that three hours and now forty-four minutes, Genesis has been reading. This would be fine, were the man reading silently. Or at the very least, not reading the same gods bedamned passages over and over.

It has now been three hours and forty-five minutes. There are four hours and fifteen long minutes to go, and Sephiroth is very, very certain he will feel every last one of them.

Prompt: First Word, Last Word
Character: Angeal
Team: Soldier
A/N: During the war in Wutai. This uses my personal jou-canon of Angeal having PTSD from the war, which is seriously the only reason I've ever been able to come up with to reasonably explain the way he snapped in Crisis Core, and why he so easily believes himself to be a monster.

--

Honor was a hard thing to hold onto in war.

Angeal tried. He tried so very hard. It was the only thing he thought he had days when the air was thick with the smell of blood, and nights when his dreams were full of burning screams.

He loved fighting the enemy; fighting men with guns and swords and materia.

But when duty said his enemy was villages of women and children with fear of him in their eyes, with blood on his face and ash in his hair, duty made it too easy to lose that hold on honor.

Summer in Midgar sucked.

Angeal had no problem letting everyone he knew know it, either. Most people were used to Gen whinging about every little thing, but there were times when Angeal had him beat. Namely, the Midgar summer.

It was hot. It was humid. He spent every day contemplating shaving his head at least once, and every second not on duty or in public in his boxers. In front of a fan. Brain melting.

So he didn't get Gen decked out in his leathers, blissfully aware of the heat and smiling faintly, engrossed in his "light reading for summer."

"You know how many?" Reno said. His tone was utterly light and conversational.

Rude knew that voice; knew how much of a cover it was at times. He knew Reno better than anyone - and perhaps the same could be said for Reno knowing him - and he knew that voice.

"How many what?" the scientist - the scientist who had been attempting to smuggle out sensitive documents on certain ShinRa experiments to the media - said. The decidedly worse-for-wear scientist.

Reno grinned. "How many hits it takes to break every bone in your body? No? So how 'bout I show you?"

Drops were falling from the sky.

She is only barely conscious of them. There's so much pain, it's like it's all that is in the world.

Drops of something. Rain, tears, blood, Tifa doesn't know.

Everything hurts so very much. Her stomach, her heart, all of it hurts, and she feels blackness at the edges of her sight and her consciousness, pulling her back from the delirium of pain and into a blessed oblivion.

Her eyes crack open briefly, and sees Zangan, bracer readied. "Be strong, girl," he whispers, and before she passes out, from his eyes, a tear drops.

"Destiny calls!" Genesis said with a whoop, waving his stick - or "Amakuni," a fanciful name from one of his storybooks - around. "Willst thou come with me, or willst thou be a coward?"

Angeal grinned, then looked around quickly for a stick of his own. It took a while, and Genesis kept his pose the whole time, although his toe was tapping with impatience and he was squirming a bit.

Finally found one, and quickly stripped off the extra bits. Genesis grinned. "You have your Osafune, and now, to war! To glory!"

"To honor!" Angeal yelled, chasing after Genesis. "And destiny!"

Prompt: First Word, Last Word
A/N: The title comes from an aria, "E lucevan le stelle," and means "And the stars shone," but the idea for the word "stars" actually comes from Dante, because the last word of each book of the Divine Comedy was "stelle," "stars."

--

Stars shone brilliantly in the sky, and Sephiroth, for a moment, felt his breath taken away.

He had never seen the starts before - not for real, in the sky. He'd studied them, of course, memorized the names, constellations, but this--

The sky was so very vast, and he was so very small. But he was free.

He looked at the night sky often, in Wutai.

Until his first real battle. When it was done, he looked up, and did not feel small. There was no vast sky; only the flames he had caused, licking up to and blocking the stars.
