::cough wheeze::

The first thing that popped into mind whilst reading? "WHAT PRESENT!? OH DEAR GOD WHAT PRESENT???!!!"

Oh, I don't know -- perhaps the equivalent of a small nuclear warhead? ^_-

Over all me really likes, though I must admit, atleast to myself, Strife seemed a bit too....cold and calculating. Yes he was a little rantyish and all but it just seemed to...reserved..?...for him.

Well, Strife is blatantly crazy, but he's certainly not the gibbering, frothing at the mouth type of crazy. He can be sly, cunning, calculating, and even patient if it allows him to ultimately get what he wants. Think about this -- Strife has been doggedly picking at the original Cloud's self-image for YEARS, magnifying the original Cloud's insecurity and sense of inadequacy. Who knows, maybe the events in the game and Last Order (i.e., Cloud defeating Sephiroth) actually took place in COI. It's Strife who has been dropping poisonous whispers that it was really Zack who defeated Sephiroth at the Nibel Reactor, etc. Strife's had a long time to brood about the 'crimes' against him, a long time to plan his revenge, and now he has the chance to carry out his dreams -- now he can finally grind everyone's face in the fact that he's 'the best, the strongest', etc.

<3 The maybe affirmation that Sephiroth & Zack were lovers. <3

Yup, semi-affirmed in the most sordid way possible, considering how Strife phrases it.

Loved it. Especially the implication that Sephy was seme. <3 For some reason I can never picture him as being uke. You know giving up the control and such though it would be a big sign of trust and whatnot it just does not compute. o.x
I have never quite 'gotten' the apparent fixation people have for categorizing characters as seme or uke. ^_^;; Yes, I agree that Sephiroth does seem the type to be seme, because of his need to control things. But on the flip side, if there was anyone that he would 'graciously allow' to top him, it would be Zack.

As has been mentioned above by other commenters. This is quite an interesting maybe affirmation. On one hand it could be confirming the suspitions and little hints and glimpses of a true Seph/Zack moment or it could be the whole Psycho Sephy/blankminded Cloud/Stife/Zack puppet incident that occured during a previous snippit.
Yes, I did deliberately leave things quite vague, didn't I? ::grins evilly:: The others (and thus the reader) can't read Strife's mind, so they can't possibly know exactly which memories or incidents he's thinking about when he rants on like this. Hell, for all they know, Strife's totally delusional or flat out lying -- although this is somewhat unlikely considering the other hints lying around.

Meanwhile O.O Sephies demeanor slightly changing errmm.... Oh boy. My little fangirl heart's all a twitter over this one. Could it be a little foreshadowing of Psycho Sephies to come? *gets a mental image of Psycho Sephy & Strife facing off* ^___________^. Happy thought!
Considering how powerful Strife is, poor Sephy may not have a choice but to resort to extreme measures. ::innocent whistle::

*gives lots of Strife shaped cookies* Sank you for the two little drabbles. They have me extremely happy and please ^^;; forgive my ramblingness.

O= The equivalent of a small nuclear warhead you say? Ewww~~~ Pretty! You're just making me giddy all over again.

:2 He still seemed just a wee bit too reserved to me, though things you say I know. Although the quite ones more scary. :X These things you say of the inconsistancy of the gamea & last order working in COI would be very good. The more you think of it there more it seems that Last Order was made specifically with COI in mind. O.o Or is that just me?

I have never quite 'gotten' the apparent fixation people have for categorizing characters as seme or uke. ^_^;;

Niether do I actually. O.o; Though I tend to be very set on a particular order if one is formed in my mind. Same with pairings. ^^;; Mayhaps it was just the way that I wormed my way into the yaoi/slash fandom.

Truth be told I was actually suprised when no one in the group seemed to have any kind of reaction to ah..news of Sephy & Zack being maybe lovers. At the very least I would have expected some kind of reaction from Reeves since he was suspecting and such.

Considering how powerful Strife is, poor Sephy may not have a choice but to resort to extreme measures. ::innocent whistle::

WEE!!!!!!!!!!! ~~^____^~~
