::goes back and reads the part before:: You know, I'm suddenly wondering if the tag of Strife for a character just comes with levels of ingrained bitterness or something.

::coughs:: Anyway, that Strifey there is completely batshit. It's lovely!

Well, Cloud's curious last name was one of the main inspirations for COI. At least for me, the word 'strife' implies so much negativity (more than other less loaded words like 'fight' or 'battle' or 'war') which I really didn't see in game-Cloud's character. Then a diabolical plotbunny whacked me over the head with the idea of an alter-ego deserving of the name 'strife', and the rest is history. O_o

And as for bitterness, a common definition of 'strife' is: vigorous or bitter conflict, discord, or antagonism. ^_-

Really? I haven't actually read most of the fic you see ::coughs:: just what you've been putting out since my first comment here. Alter egos are always fun though, definitely.

Hmmm, as for the definition, I think I was trying to say you never see a Cloud-type consistently called Strife unless he's bitter somehow. The author always reverts to Cloud somewhere. ::little grin:: there. Now I think I make sense. Maybe.
