Poor Strife, indeed. Jenova was just using him to goad Sephiroth. But really, much of his current dilemma is Strife's own fault. I don't think that if Stife had merely gone on a destructive 'blow shit up' rampage, Sephiroth wouldn't have been driven to tore down those mental barriers and let himself go. Even just outright killing Zack probably wouldn't have done it.

But slapping Sephiroth in the face with his plans to torture Zack for as long as Strife can possible manage? Bad idea.

And as of insane!Sephiroth, well, it's true that he's not exactly sane at the moment, but he's not insane in the way often seen in fanfics. Hint -- he doesn't call Jenova 'mother'. ^_-

Heee. True. But at the same time, I kinda feel sorry for the SoB, because he wasn't born like that. And if it was just killing Zack, Seph wouldn't exactly have much of a leg to stand on, considering. *grins* But no, then he had to go and torture him. Silly Strife.

Oh you can tell he's not Jenova!insane. The glories of having all the information on hand and all that.

In a way, Strife is a victim of his very nature (i.e., a persona created specifically to deal with the most unbearable parts of Cloud's miserable life). On the other hand, he IS a vicious SOB who wants payback for every perceived slight, real or imagined.

Both Zack and Sephiroth are fighters -- they know that those who live by the sword are probably going to die by the sword. It's the nature of the business and they recognize that. Death is something to be strenuously avoided, but not feared. So I think Sephiroth would cope much better with Zack's death than with Zack's suffering.

Hmmmm... does that make sense?

And yes, silly Strife. ::kick kick::

Yes. That's pretty much what I was trying to say. He wasn't born that way, but was made that way due to maltreatment as a kid. And of course, now he's just psycho. ... kinda feel sorry for normal!Cloud, having to put up with Strife.

Oh yeah. I think any and every Soldier knows that they're likely gonna die. It's just that Strife chose to torture him. That's just gonna piss Seph off.
