They will definitely want to give Cloud more time. Once he remembered about Zack and Aeris, it's inevitable that he'd remember about Sephiroth... eventually.

Makes sense. And it's probably better for his mental health if he remembers it by himself.

As for telling him, Zack and Aeris will probably end up being forced to tell him AFTER Sephiroth returns. Why? Because Sephiroth gets brought back prematurely by a human faction for their own selfish reasons.

And that's not going to help the humans' case at all, is it?

A strictly Sephiroth-Cloud relationship (without significant sexual or non-sexual involvement from Zack) might be feasible pre-Nibelheim, but IMO, it would still be a rather tenuous and dysfunctional relationship. Neither of them are very good at communicating their emotional needs. So call me unimaginative, but I end up picturing bouts of hot sex, tense insecure silences, and not much else.

Hmmm. Guess it depends on the set up. Zack is involved in my Keeper-verse, but even if he wasn't I've given them a telepathic/empathic link to compensate for their reluctance to speak to each other. With Responsive I had a required teacher-student relationship beforehand, and Sephiroth has a strong enough sense of duty to make that work by force of will. In Chosen, pre-Nibelheim, you've just about nailed what sort of relationship Sephiroth and Cloud had, and in my Handler continuity Zack's still their friend, a fairly close friend.
