Feral Turks on the prowl....
I have this mad desire to give Rufus and the Turks fox-like alter-forms. Yes, this is just an excuse to have a youko-Rufus (a la Yu Yu Hakusho) and/or to have Rufus go nine-tails Kyuubi (a la Naruto) at some point. He would make a lovely gold, multi-tailed fox, of course -- cunning and sneaky. Reno would make a great red fox and Tseng would be black, of course. Admittedly, foxes are not in the standard Final Fantasy bestiary, but hey, it's -my- AU! :P

FYI, 'earth' 'skulk' or 'leash' are commonly accepted collective nouns for a group of foxes. ^_-

soloyuymaxwell gets all the blame for this demented idea because she sicced her damn spare plotfoxies on me! ::growl::

EDIT 1: I just realized that in numerous depictions, 'feral' is not that far off from Reno's natural state of mind, so not much would really change for him, except the shapeshifting and loads more power. ....Okay, I can see that in the war against the feral virus, Reno would pretty much be a lost cause. ::snerk::

EDIT 2: I still can't think of a good alter-form for Reeve. For some reason, 'coyote' keeps popping up. Hmmm..... ::ponder::

Oh yes, nine-tail Rufus. I can so picture Reno strutting around flaunting his tails.

So what if foxes aren't in the standard beastiary? I'll bet there's a lot of common things that aren't in the beastiary. Go for it! Mind, of the four 'core' Turks I can't see Rude as a fox, so perhaps he'd be the only one that stayed human, as Reno's pet like you mentioned earlier. I can see Elena as a fox, but not Rude, he comes off as almost a python type to me.

Yes, I can also see Elena (and her sister) as vixens. I'm really favoring Rude as human pet. ::evil grin::

My brian just offered monkey for Reeve

You know. Those cute lil' lion monkeys?

It's strange that whenever I think about animals and beasties, I always overlook the primates. I wonder why. ::scratching heads.::

Maybe it's because I just don't find them as cuddly as other critters? Yeah, I'm a strange one to talk -- I consider dragons cuddly. :D

I blame Cait Sith, but I've always imagined some kind of cat form for Reeve. Not necessarily a housecat type, though.

Then again that's probably too cliched.

I like the kitsune idea, myself but not for obvious reasons

Same here, but we already have a kitty. ::points to Seph::

Wheee! I'm gonna have an earth of feral Turk-foxies!

Hmm. How about 'weasel' for Reeve? They're crafty and wise much like foxes but are known for sticking to the background. They are always working but trying to avoid the 'spotlight', giving credit to others; making them seem sketchy and questionable at times but always planning planning planning for every conceivable scenario.

Or maybe something like a "higher-class" cousin to the weasel, the ermine?

Though the coyote certainly does appeal to me for some odd reason. Maybe it's the fact that Reeve was "masquerading" as Cait Sith, and the native American Coyote god was considered a trickster, I dunno.

Weee~! ^^ What a lovely birthday gift! I get blamed for your ideas! -twirleyhappyfun- Thank you very much! I knew those plotfoxies would come through for the both of us. ^^

And I agree with mandy on the weasel part. ^^ -nodnod-

And here is something your plotbunnies gave me, a little tribute to you. --> Clicky

Plotfoxies are evil, but they seem to get along surprisingly well with the other plotbeasties... as long as they belong to the same fic-verse. ::snort::

Okay, another vote for weasel.

A pretty-pretty for me? ::runs off to check::

I was going to say something similar to fontech concerning Reeve and Cait, but I am starting to see the value of a coyote.

Any decision on what Aeris is?

I think she's going to get a flora-based (i.e., plant) alter-form instead of an animal-based one, because I think it suits her more pacific nature. ^_^

If you've ever wanted to know what a group of animals might be called, try this website, it's got... well most of them! (Foxes are also called 'skulks', also very fitting for Turks!)

Well, it seems that most sources seem to agree with you about a 'skulk of foxes'. ^_^

Uh oh the Feral beasts have took your mind! Trust me they hook you in reaaall fast. Turks as foxes sound so awesome. The SOLDIER boys already took the panthers and the wolves. For Reeve...I say jackel or coyote appears in my mind. ( tries to resist the urge to go get her mythical creatures encyclopedia which has meanings of different creatures and some myth here and there )

What about Vincento? What is he gonna be? A hellhound hybrid??? Oh no more drawing ideas...speaking of which, I know this is late but hey its done. Its that pic of Seph and Wolfie Zack. I couldnt draw him holding the little canine since I couldnt seem to get the right position.

Its sad that I draw creatures better than humans, but hey its fun drawing FF guys as their personality ferals....( goes off to her sketchbook )

O.O Your fics here have been a favourtie haunt of mine for MONTHS! And I absolutely LOVE this feral-fic. Your work is not only an entertaining read, but it actually made me think "Huh, what IF it had been like that?" But oh my...this certainly is luv---my favourite FFVII characters as beasties? XP....

I also was sorely tempted to put my own $0.02 about Aeris...

If any of you have seen Disney's Fantasia 2000, there's a epidsode with a forest spirit. She's very beautiful, and is all made of greenery and flowers and vines. Here's small image of her, but I thought it might have been a good form for Aeris:
