it's all such good material for even more adventures in COI-land, but... I dunno, somehow, at this point, after all this time, I guess what I was hoping for was some resolution?

Actually, although the precise form is still somewhat nebulous (especially with the replotting I've been doing), but I fully intend there to be an at least happy ending to COI. So ultimately, there should be a good resolution to the current morass. ::crossing heads::

Now, I know that considering we have JUST gotten Sephy to join our team, and Jenova has just popped her resurrected head out of the ground, and the mystery of Dr. Savois's motives and all that are only now getting started, I should consider COI *far* from over. But maybe, at least in the realm of Sephiroth's mental state, I had hoped for a bit of a calm... I mean, we *just* got introduced to Sane Sephiroth so I'd find it pretty entertaining to just try and get to know him over the next few chapters through our heroes (and Seph being Seph, aka more closed than a clamshell, I'm sure that's going to be tough-going enough). And I've got to admit that I was really looking forward to some fluffy moments of Seph being, well... "not-evil" (remember Seph brushing his teeth? Or doing something simularly trivial and everyday? Am I sick in the head for wanting to see that? ^^; ).

::patpat:: Not at all! There IS going to be a good chunk of intermediate chapters dedicated to allowing the others to become acquainted with sane!Sephiroth as a (relatively) normal person who, yes, brushes his teeth, puts his pants on one leg at a time, etc. Now that the stress of having to be Shinra's perfect warrior is off, Sephiroth can relax a bit and seem just a little more like a normal human. This will be unconsciously aided and abetted by Zack!Cloud, who will do all that he can to get the others to see Sephiroth as being a real human being, including changing Seph's wardrobe, etc.

Especially with Cloud's increasing tendency to slip into Zack-mode in Sephiroth's presence, you'll probably get to see nice mundane details as breakfast rituals -- Sephiroth likes berry muffins but not poppyseed muffins, thank you, and likes just a touch of sugar in his coffee, although he refuses to admit it, etc. Picture Cloud absently picking through a basket of hot muffins, pulling out a berry one, and tossing it over his shoulder at Sephiroth, who just as absently catches it and begins to eat it, all without taking his eyes off a report. ^_-

Much of this intermediate section will also be involved with the whole Rufus situation, in which we will get to see Sephiroth, zack!Cloud, working with other First Class SOLDIERs. Picture all of them on souped up motorcycles tearing out of Midgar at insane speeds on their way to get to Rufus before Hojo does. ::evil grin::
