COI - Zack, dark and dangerous
39 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

I really liked it, ^_^ It's always a treat to dig deep into the minds of the FF7 boys, and you always end up doing a wonderful job. As a Zack fangirl I must commend your ability to make me squiggle every time he's mentioned. But now I worry about him, ;.; down with Strife - Zack!Cloud is the best kind! >.>

Gotta feel sorry for Reno. Geez, poor guy, he's just not used to this stuff. And as much as it freaks me out, I do so love Cloud's psychotic moments. It makes the fic all the more delicious with all the crossing mentalities and motives... you're a genius and I don't know how you do it. ♥

I really hope you stay inspired - it's a real treat to get a taste of good quality FFVII fanfiction, considering all the crap that's out there. I wish you luck! ^_^

You're right about Reno. Prior to all this, he wasn't aware of the depths of Hojo's depravity.

If one was the suspicious, paranoid sort, one might think that Zack agreed to accompany Reno and tell him all about what happened to his sister in delightfully gruesome detail in order to show Reno just how vile their mutual enemies (Hojo and his ilk) are and how the filthy scum should be handled....

Interesting recruitment tactic, no? ::significant eyebrow waggle::

I love Zack. Just... there are no words for how much I love your Zack, XD He can be sneaky that way. I write him as being a lot less ruthless and more joking, but I seem to love both interpretations of him anyway... it's amusing.

I have a question, and you don't have to answer it, obviously, but... in an earlier chapter, Red XIII mentioned a materia that could help Cloud with his memories. Was this an idly mentioned thing or are you planning to use this in the future? Because it sounds so intriguing...

The COI Zack is no saint. And if one insists on considering him an angel, then he's could very well be called the dark angel of death. This is a person who has no qualms against assassinating a pregnant woman and instigating a bloody clan war to achieve his goal (i.e., the quick end to the Wutai war). He did it for Sephiroth's sake, but that doesn't make it any less ruthless, calculated, or cold-blooded. Strife would stab you in the back in a dark alley out of pure spite. Zack would do the exact same thing if he considered you an obstacle.

So you see, the phrase "Sephiroth's Shadow" has lots of layers of meaning with respect to Zack. Let's just say that Zack doesn't mine getting his hands dirty if necessary to protect the people (or person) he cares about.

Was this an idly mentioned thing or are you planning to use this in the future? Because it sounds so intriguing...

::strikes pompous pose:: Nothing is idly mentioned!

::snicker:: I've heard people say the same thing about J.K. Rowling. ^_-

Seriously, though, it's not entirely a throw-away line. It's more of a potential plot thread I've considered but haven't quite decided on using.
