Convolutions of an Evil Mind
It's positively unfair!
I just saw the latest Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children trailer (www.adventchildren.net) and now all the COI muses are mobbing me! Which would normally be a GOOD thing -- although COI is always lurking in the back of my mind -- but I've still got that "Black Feathers" installment to finish (and I've really started to roll on that one).

It's a conspiracy! A vile conspiracy, I say!!!

::frantically weebles back and forth between fics, trying to decide which story to work on::


But as for the FF7: AC trailer, here's a quick rundown of my thoughts while watching the trailer:

1 - Cloud riding Fenrir (his motorcycle). There's nothing quite like a good-looking guy on a big, mean, fast-moving machine. ::snicker::

2 - Cloud strolling through ruined church against backdrop of stained glass windows. Yum-my! (see my picture above?)

3 - Where the hell was he hiding that friggin' huge knife!? I'm referring to the scene when Cloud gets disarmed by mysterious silver-haired guy -- Cloud smoothly whips out this 'knife' that would probably serve as a full-sized sword for a normal person. Reminds me somewhat of the Highlander TV series. ^_-

4 - This movie's going to be a-crawl with gorgeous guys, most of them with silver hair and out to kill Cloud. ::ominous foreshadowing music:: But that's definitely not a bad thing.

5 - Cloud wearing kickass shades. Damn, he looks fine and dangerous -- just the way I like them! ::licking chops::

I am SO glad you posted this. *dies of happiness* And I would have continued to live in ignorance of that beautiful trailer...

Where did the name Fenrir come from, out of curiousity? Is that canon or did you create it? Either way, it's cool, ^^

And I just wanted you to know... CoI has turned me into a Zack fanatic. It's very scary. But that fic kicks royal ass. Wonder if they'd put Zack in the movie... probably not, -_-;;

I'm fairly sure that Fenrir is the official name, although I can't cite a specific source for that info. It's just something I came across during my websurfing. ^_^;

But I like it. It sounds suitably fierce and I've always had a weakness for names with a wolfish connotation (e.g., Faelan, Fenris, etc). ::snicker::

Re: Fenrir

I was actually wondering where you got Faelan from, ^^;; But I guess that answers my question! Wolfish, eh... I guess that sort of suits him, doesn't it. Heh. Wish I'd thought of it.

As for Fenrir, I think I'll make it a project at some point to search that out. Would certainly be interesting.

*drools* Cloud...hehehehe...

I love CoI, by the way. ^^ I honestly hope you'll continue it soon. It's been too long since an update.

COI inspiration?? ^_______^ Please keep that vibe going! Since Zack doesn't look to be appearing in Advent Children, we've gotta keep him alive in other ways, ne? And nothing pumps up my Zack love like COI... ^__^ Ganbatte, MH!

about the "knife"

the first time I saw the trailer, I was pretty confused by the big sword too. But after watching the trailer a couple more times, I noticed that Cloud does have a second sword sheathed there. It's hard to tell, but there's definitely something long and black poking out that looks like the hilt of a sword. By the way, I'm a big fan of CoI too ^_^

Advent Children & CIO

COI plot bunnies attacking is a good thing. ^______^. I've loved COI since the first time I read it a couple years ago and have obsessively watched it since then. It's my obsolute fav. out of all your stories. Even Mechanics of Control which I adore and Heart and Soul which I love. (is a very big S/YY fan) Umm...but I'm getting off course I 'spose. If you don't recognize me, which you probly don't, I'm always the one who always, probably, annoys you with err...Cloud's virtue. *cough* I really can't help it. Honest~ I just love that little teaser and have been a huge S/Z/C fan since I first played the game.

Also I would like to take this oppertunity to thank you. You got me into writting. Granted I don't do so often and it takes me forever, and I get anywhere near as IC as you can, but I do enjoy it.

I can't wait until Advent Children comes out I just hope that they have it in subtitles since I adore Clouds voice. ...omg... I'm so fangurling aren't I? >__<. Finrir was listed as the name of Clouds bike on that website you linked to, in referance to another comment. And ... *stops self from further obsessing*

Needless to say I hope that more of COI gets done. ^__________^. I've been itching to read it since the start for a few days now but haven't had the time. I would in fact be doing so now if I wasn't late for work... o.o; And with that revelation I think I shall go... P.S. Just so you know, you are one of my fav. aurthers ever. Not just in fanfiction but in all writings. ^_____^.

Ay! If you're starting to think about that again, think twice! Thousands of people are waiting for you to continue your beautiful writing talents. *sigh* Including me.

Zack in Advent Children??

Haa, sorry, I know I already commented on this entry before, but I just noticed something in the new Advent Children trailer that I hadn't realized before--a reference to Zack!

When Cloud sticks his huge Buster Sword into the ground and says "Omae no bun made ikiyou... sou kimetta n da kedo..." he's talking about Zack! Maybe I never noticed before cuz I'm thick or something, but I think the subtitles really throw off the meaning--it says "I decided to live for your sake" which isn't too off, but the translation of "bun" is closer to "until I repay a debt I owe you" which really makes sense for Cloud and Zack (Z did die to save Cloud and Cloud stole his identity for awhile, after all). Isn't that lovely?? Here I'd been thinking he was talking about Aeris or something, just carrying on because she would've wanted it. And I wonder what sort of debt he's talking about... killing Sephy? The COI follower in me says, "until I bring back sane Sephiroth" but that's probably too much of a stretch for the FF7 canon. ^^;

Further proof that he's talking about Zack-- notice where he's standing? Looks like a cliff, and there are large, dark structures in the distance that could be Midgar's ruins. Which means, it could be the cliff overlooking Midgar where Zack died. ^__^ I wonder if we'll get a flashback of Zack or something in Advent Children... wouldn't that be great??

^^;; Ara, sorry... I wanted to share that with fellow Zack fans and nobody loves Zack more than COI fans, right? ^^ Heheh, please continue soon, Madam Hydra--I still check your site every other day!
