A/N: This applies equally well to Crisis Core and Dirge of Cerberus, though my heart puts it at the end of CC.




The helmets made it easy.

With their built-in binoculars, infra-red, computerized enhancement, haze filters, and recognition software, they simplified everything.

Flesh, blood, bone, rain, mud, SOLDIER blues, all reduced to shades of high-definition green.

Black and white, life and death, right and wrong – all green.

Shinra techs had designed the helmets to give their men an edge, to make their work easier. To simplify things.

Had they already known that one day they would simplify this? Was the SOLDIER program destined to arrive here, at this moment? Was all this inevitable?

Atrocities become inevitable, when things are made too easy.

His brand-new suit hung loosely around his body, tailored for a growth spurt. Wide-eyed and silent, the not-yet-a-man, no-longer-a-boy stared at shelves lined with hair dye. Wider than the width of his arms, taller than he himself. There was fire red, auburn, burgundy, scarlet...
 
His messy, black hair clung to his face, partially covering the fresh tattoos that hid a single, thin scar on his cheekbone.
 
"Cut your hair." the commander had said. "Tomorrow starts your life as a Turk. There is no place for your past here."
 
He welcomed the chance to bury the ugly remains of his past.

Reno had often seen Rufus rummage through his wardrobe for suited clothes. Whenever he had guard duty during an arranged date, he wondered what the man would put on next. It was almost always something different. Always fantastic to see. And always black and white.
 
Sometimes he and his colleagues would even bet on the number of pieces that would be black or white.
 
So, when Rufus showed up on his doorstep, ready for the 'evening of good fun' Reno had promised him, he was stunned to see him in black trousers, a beige jacket... and a deep blue shirt.

Prompt: Chromatic

Team: AVALANCHE

She first wants to laugh when she sees that the king wears pink as well, underneath the armor. Really, a big strong fighter like him, the crux of the most powerful summon, and he's got a girly side!

Then, as if noticing her amusement, his spirit turns to hers. She can see his image of himself more clearly: the color is splotchy. His memory of himself is stained with--

She turns her attention inward for a second, searching herself. Her pink dress is uniform, but he seems to know what it's hiding anyway, nodding acknowledgment.

Pink is the lighter red.

Prompt #151

It was a new beginning all around for Avalanche. They took the trophy for the first time in a long while with 20 points. The Turks and SOLDIER seem to be stuck in the same old rut.

This week's prompt is: 151 - Chromatic

(Thanks to [personal profile] shadowwaker for the prompt suggestion!)

Your mission this week is to write a drabble regarding one or more colors, or even its absence.

It could be a plot detail: Cid's cup of green tea, a drop of Cloud's blood, the red ribbons of remembrance. Or it can become the background: the bright flowers of the church, the dirty streets of Midgar, the neon signs on the plate, the mako haze. Color could be a metaphor: green for envy, red for love, grey for an uneventful day. You could even delve into color symbolism.

But there are always fashion color disasters, stains, dyed hair... So many colorful things.

So add a little color to your drabbles, but in only 100 words.
