FF7-AC-Cloud in church

COI - the continuing evolution of the Great Nibelheim Plotbunny! (i.e., yet more retconning)

Damn, "In the End" by Linkin Park always seems to rev my plotbunnies into overdrive. -_-

For those who don't remember, my Great Nibelheim Plotbunnny (aka the COI version of the Nibelheim incident) basically goes as follows:

1 - At Nibelheim, insane!Sephiroth, far from turning on Zack, turns possessive and wants to keep Zack with him.
2 - Under insane!Sephiroth's control, Zack unknowingly destroys most of Nibelheim and kills most of its inhabitants.
3 - After insane!Sephiroth's departure for the Nibel Reactor, Zack wakes up from his trance. Unaware of what he's done, he goes chasing after insane!Sephiroth.
4 - In the Nibel Reactor, Sephiroth isn't angry or trying to kill Zack, but is merely attempting to subdue Zack so he can 'fix' Zack's mind.

Now, this works just fine if there were no witnesses to Zack's unwitting participation in the Nibelheim massacre (and if the few survivors only see insane!Sephiroth)....

....however, it seems that the Great Nibelheim Plotbunny has mutated! ::evil cackle::

There WAS one person, who sees what happens between insane!Sephiroth and Zack, but more importantly understands it (i.e., Zack unwittingly acting under insane!Sephiroth's control).

And who is this lone witness, may you ask? ::long drumroll::
