Cloud!!! for the meme thingie
Popular guy. :P
Why? Well…Cloud’s a complex character when you get down to it. He’s flawed, and ridiculous. He’s likeable and hateable. I like him because he’s adorable, but at the same time he’s an imposing badass with a fuckton of power at his fingertips. He’s just /fun/.
I don’t like angst. I despise melodrama. Cloud often gets caught up in both. When he doesn’t, when he overcomes it and leaves it behind? I am a happy camper. Most of my dislikes for Cloud spawn entirely in Fanon Cloud and his heavy melodrama and angst, or when people make him the stereotypical “uke”. Don’t do either of those things and I’ll purr like a kitten.
- Favorite episode (scene if movie)
So many. So, so many. That angry look on his face in the beginning when he looks like an offended kitten. The scene where Sephiroth impales him on Masamune and he’s hanging there, kicking in pain. The scene /afterward/ where Zack’s at his back, and Cloud looks so, so amazed. Hell, his entire battle with Sephiroth is pretty much my favorite thing ever.
In game, I’d have to say the way he pulls himself up after learning he wasn’t a SOLDIER. It’s pretty great seeing Cloud emerge from Zack’s shadow there. I like how the writers DID manage to make them seem different.
- Favorite line
That fucking line, in Advent Children Complete…where he’s talking about how he must have lost weight from dragging his burdens around or whatever. Cloud YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR IS SO WEIRD.
I’m fond of his Advent Children one…if only because it’s funny. Cloud really. Wtf is with that waist cape??
AS IF NO ONE KNEW…. SephCloud. SephCloud for. Fucking. Ever. Whether it’s unhealthy, or written in a way that is healthy, I love the dynamic between these two way, way too much. Even before I was really into FF7 I adored SephCloud.
Another no brainer. Zack and Cloud are the best bros to ever have bro’d and no one will ever convince me otherwise. While it takes a very special story for me to ship these two romantically…I can never get enough of them being the amazing best buds that they are.
Uhm…A lot of my “headcanons” i’m not sure are headcanons since they’re heavily supported by canon but…
I guess my headcanons are like…He’s bisexual with no heavy leaning preference toward one gender or the other. One of his favorite hotspots is his neck, particularly the back of it.
His sword skill is mostly a cobbled together, self-taught mess, which is the only reason he’s able to wield that hot mess he calls a Fusion Sword.
I’m not sure these are unpopular opinions so much as HUGE PET PEEVES that go against the grain of most of the fandom…
Zack does NOT call Cloud “Spiky”. Barret does. Zack doesn’t.
Cloud is not, and never was, a Cadet. He was a Trooper, a Private, a Grunt, in the ShinRa army. Cadets are an ENTIRELY different thing, and we never see evidence that Cloud was in a military academy. He went straight into the ShinRa army.
That he get his happy ending, and grow to be an amazing dude, recovering from all that PTSD and trauma he’s gone through. :>
- An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen
Uhhhh…..Hm. Don’t have him die in a shitty way? I feel like Cloud deserves to go out with a bang. Idk.
- 5 words to best describe them
Complex. Ridiculous. Cute. Powerful. Self-conscious.
Offended Kitten, Big Dumb Baby, Cloud No.
