Re: *squeals with delight*

Ah yes, that insidious little thought about being able to force Cloud to do something. Sephiroth hasn't truly lost any abilities; he's only unable to use them... at the moment. Regaining his previous powers is really quite simple. Seductively simple, in fact. All he has to do is return to his former self.... ::evil grin::

That's got to be a bit scary. To just instantly become insane, and willingly too. Speaking for myself, that is awfully tempting... but if I'm insane, that means I'm not me, and I'm not really enjoying my power. Still, the idea is tantalizing....

And now I'm imagining a scenario where the only way Seph can save CloudZack is to regain an ability. And to do that, he has to become insane.

Does your Sephiroth Power mythology include the idea that under extreme stress, Seph can become stronger or unlock a power?

So it's a vicious cycle -- the nuttier you are, the more power you can use, and the more power you use, the nuttier you get.

Awesome. X)

No, Zack (in his original body) is a normal 1st generation SOLDIER, although a very high-functioning one (i.e., First Class). Cloud is the only 2nd generation human model, so to speak.

Oh, I meant that Zack is kinda like a 2nd Gen SOLDIER since he's in Cloud's body. =)

The present Cloud probably has close to the full abilities of the 2nd generation SOLDIER as designed. So at the moment, Cloud (in full Zack-mode) is pretty close ability-wise to sane-Sephiroth. However, Strife, due to the extra boost from his craziness, can considerably exceed those design parameters.

*cackles* Poor Seph. He doesn't know about the enemy that's in a body that was designed to be superior to him. *pats Seph on the hair* Looks like Strife is suppose to be cooler than you. =)

And damn... using your idea about 2nd Gen Soldiers, I can't help but think what would have happened to Seph if there was a 2nd Gen Soldier program that was succesfully launched *before* Seph went nuts in FF7. Hojo could have convinced Shina that Sephiroth was obselete and be more useful as a lab rat.

So, as COI is currently plotted (although this is subject to change)

You're not going to wander away from COI just yet, are you? *worries*
Here's a FF7 comedy fic I always reread. (Sorry if you read this one already!) It never fails to lift my mood or help energize my creativity. And the disclaimers and author notes in the beginning of each chapter (which aren't always the same) are funny too.

Speaking of creativity... how many heads (and tails) do you have? Three or eight? I'm going to make it my mission to keep your COI bunnies fed. >=)
