11 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Unfortunately, it's somewhat unlikely that this scene will make into Redux intact. Mainly, because the interplay between Cloud's and Strife's personalities are quite different. Also, Tifa's not quite so harshly antagonistic to Sephiroth (although she's still understandably suspicious) and Sephiroth will be much nicer to Cloud in his cool, extremely way (courtesy of his characterization in Crisis Core).

Why, you might ask? Because there's something SERIOUSLY wrong with Cloud's relationship with Zack, and Sephiroth really does care about Zack (and therefore, Cloud as well) in a combination of mentor and older, wiser friend -- you know, the sort that who follows behind a bouncy beloved puppy (aka Zack), mildly exasperated but amused and indulgent at the same time.

Sephiroth feels that he owes Zack in several ways. For one thing, Zack is his best friend Angeal's legacy. Secondly, because Sephiroth basically chicked out and shoved all the dirty work of dealing with (and ultimately killing) Angeal off on poor Zack. And now the sense of debt is even worse because instead of looking out for Zack, Sephiroth finds out that he nearly killed him and ultimately caused Zack's death!

So basically, instead of opposing each other as they did in the original COI, Tifa and Sephiroth are much more on the same side in Redux, because they're both seriously concerned about Cloud and his relationship with Zack... which is NOT a healthy one at all.

You know things are bad when of the three most dangerous and powerful people around -- Sephiroth, Cloud, and Rufus -- Sephiroth is the one who's the most emotionally and mentally stable of the three. O_o
