*laughs* oh Zack, you wolfie little creature! So great. Cloud was....sad. I just wanted to cuddle the poor thing. And the landrey thing was just great! I could almost picture it in my head. The little thig at the end between Zack and Seph was just SO perfect! So, why don't Soldier's smell? Out of curiosity? Is there something in the Mako that stops oders? Or what?

He suddenly whipped around and growled at the troopers behind him. "What the hell did I tell you bozos before? All SOLDIERs' laundry gets washed with the unscented stuff!"

If you're talking about that part, they'd have to use unscented because their senses are so acute it'd be overwhelming if they didn't (or so goes my theory). *shrugs* I'm sure their sense of touch is also just as sensitive, so they'd have that to deal with as well.

Yup, that's it! ::offers Seph and Zack cookies::

I can picture a sleepless Sephiroth at night -- instead of counting sheep-equivalents, he counts the threads in his sheets just by touch. ^_^

This would be before Zack spoiled him rotten by getting him some sheets with the highest count possible. In silk. Or the equivalent thereof. *nods*

Yes, I can see grumpy Sephiroth complaining that the 400 count sheets only have 398 threads/inch.

Zack does pamper his Seph, doesn't he? ::pets Zack:: And he's making Shinra pay for all of it. ::smirk::
artimusdin From: artimusdin Date: April 8th, 2007 10:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
*snickers* And Zack would indulge him, no doubt. Because damnit, Sephiroth deserves to be spoiled. ^___^
madamhydra From: madamhydra Date: April 8th, 2007 10:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, Sephiroth deserves to be spoiled, but I don't think he understands what it means to be spoiled, nor does he expect to be spoiled, at least with respect to personal matters.

So it's always a surprise when Zack comes up with some new indulgence for Sephiroth's personal pleasure, no matter how small. Which probably makes Zack madder at Hojo and his ilk for giving Sephiroth such a deprived childhood.
artimusdin From: artimusdin Date: April 8th, 2007 11:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes. Exactly. ^___^ And of course, that gives Zack even MORE reason to indulge him.

Cloud was....sad. I just wanted to cuddle the poor thing.

Sadly by this point, he's pretty much broken. He's trying so hard, but nothing goes his way. Part of my rewrite of COI will hopefully have a little more pre-Nibelheim interaction between Zack and Cloud. Unfortunately, it's a matter of too little, too late. ::sniffle::

And the landrey thing was just great! I could almost picture it in my head. The little thig at the end between Zack and Seph was just SO perfect!

COI-Seph is quite proud how HIS Zack excels, both in the field and off it.

So, why don't Soldier's smell? Out of curiosity? Is there something in the Mako that stops oders? Or what?

Oh, SOLDIERs smell, but it's less evident than most humans. For one thing, it takes more to get them sweating. As for Sephiroth, he does perspire, but his body chemistry is so heavily modified that a normal human nose can't pick it up. Other SOLDIERs and animals can, though.

I know, it is really sad. Cloud was a product of his environment and was doomed by the time he arrived at Midgar.

The achievements of his Zack reflect back upon him? So, I really liked the interaction between Zack and some of the non-solider SHINRA fighters. It's interesting, the dynamic that occurs between him and others. Ad I really like the fact that Zack seems to be comfortably in charge. I wonder, if Zack had been his direction superior if Cloud would have been ok, rather than the guy he ended up with. I don't think Zack would tolerate much infighting from his people.

so, Fido can smell them, but little old CLoud can't. That's interesting! I'd never thought of that before. I bet they hate candles and Air fresheners! Would strong scents give them headaches or just cause for frustration?

It's like you have a dog that you particularly cherish -- you love him regardless, but it's a big ego boost to know that your dog is smarter, faster, and/or better at doing certain tasks.

Oh, Zack is very good at handling people, whether superiors, equals, or subordinates. Unfortunately, in COI, the SOLDIERs and regular army have fairly separate lines of commands. So the regular army guys like Cloud usually aren't under the command of a SOLDIER, except on actual missions. And on some missions, they would be under the command of an regular army officer, who in turn reports to the SOLDIER.

so, Fido can smell them, but little old CLoud can't. That's interesting! I'd never thought of that before. I bet they hate candles and Air fresheners! Would strong scents give them headaches or just cause for frustration?

Even for dogs, the smell would be fainter and harder to detect. And yes, most SOLDIERs don't particularly like strong scents, although it is less of a problem for the Third Classes, whose senses are less enhanced than the Seconds, whose senses are less acute than the Firsts, with Sephiroth's senses being significantly sharper than the Firsts. As for the Firsts and Sephiroth, they just learn how to cope with it.

And if a Second Class has problems coping with his enhanced senses, he's not going to qualify to become a First.
