Cool, I'm glad you remembered our discussion on power levels, and to see Cloud remembering that yes, Zack always has been stronger than the common run of SOLDIERs.

That is the clear implication from Crisis Core. Although CC isn't canon for Feral-verse, I suspect that I'll be incorporating some significant chunks in, especially Zack-wise. In some discussions about CC, people mention that Zack is referred to as being an Elite SOLDIER (i.e., one who has progressed beyond normal First Class levels).

Well, at least Tifa is aware of her limitations.

She is, but tends to forget about Cloud's pervasive physical superiority, mainly because Cloud doesn't blatantly flaunt it.

I wonder if she's thought about the sexual implications?

I seriously doubt it. While I don't think Tifa is a virgin at this point, I also think that Tifa's been having so much trouble trying to establish an even semi-romantic relationship with Cloud, she probably hasn't gotten around to thinking about actual sex, much less its mechanics.

Although given that an unenhanced Cloud and Aeris managed a relationship with Zack and Sephiroth safely enough before maybe they don't matter as much.

One of the main reasons that Elite SOLDIERs like Zack and Sephiroth are so dangerous is because not only are they incredibly strong, they also have incredible control over that strength, even under high stress conditions (e.g., combat). SOLDIERs are guys who can jump incredible distances vertically, dodge/deflect bullets, etc., and they can still interact with no problem with ordinary people and objects, even delicate ones. So it's hardly a stretch to think that Zack and Sephiroth can moderate their strength for unenhanced sexual partners.

That being said, sex is certainly going to be a lot more fun for OT4 once they don't have to worry about holding back for Cloud's and Aeris's safety. ::leer::

I see she's showing signs of jealousy already, even if she doesn't really have a right to be jealous. Zack has the prior claim,

But it's very possible that Tifa sees herself with the prior claim. After all, she and Cloud grew up 'together' and Cloud made that promise to her in Nibelheim, long before Zack entered the picture.

One can also argue that even if she doesn't have 'priority', Tifa still has a valid reason for being somewhat upset and jealous, considering she's invested a fair bit of time and energy trying to form a deeper relationship with Cloud.

and I don't think Cloud's shown any real interest in her since she was the town princess and he was the town outcast heading off for the big city.

Well, this being Feral-verse and OT4, you're pretty much right about the lack of interest, specifically romantic interest.

Now, that reads to me as if Cloud is already recognising that he was closer to Sephiroth than most people, even if he is filtering that closeness through 'the General' as Zack's friend, and him being Zack's lover.

Yes, it does, doesn't it? ^_- The more Cloud remembers about his relationship with Zack, it's inevitable that he will remember more about the sane Sephiroth, the person, complete with emotions and feelings (as opposed to just an idealized hero/idol). And as this happens, Cloud will gradually beginning to reconnect Sephiroth with the memories of his third beloved person.

I'm still trying to decide whether I'll have Cloud find out very soon or later on in the story.
