barret date

pichupal  asked:

How about number 2 for "Date Night"? FFVII, but no idea about a pairing - I mainly picked it because want to know why you think it's "in quotes". Maybe it's a mission turned into a date? Sephiroth goes out and buys dates (the fruit)? Zack dresses up as a Knight for Date Knight? The possibilities are endless.

Those are all really cute! I’m not really sure where mine came from. 


“You know,” Cloud said, “we could always just tell them we’re not out on a date night.” Barret ignored him and kept his eyes on Seventh Heaven. Actually the windows of second storey where the kids were supposed to be. 

Denzel and Marlene insisted Barret and Cloud go out on a date night tonight. They were determined that the two had to get out of the house which made Barret suspicious. They had reservations for dinner at one of the nicer restaurants already made for them which made Cloud think it was sincere. One call from Tifa confirmed she helped the kids set it up. The only thing not on Cloud’s side was that Tifa was in Wutai helping Yuffie with WRO stuff. 

Which left the kids alone. 

“You really think they’re gonna throw a party or some shit?” Cloud asked. 

“They’re up to somethin’“ Barret insisted, “and I wanna know what. Marlene wasn’t talkin’ to me when she was shovin’ us out the door. That means she’s hiding something.” 

“She’s almost 13,” Cloud said, “I say it’s about time she started hiding something from you. It’s part of that age…or at least it was for me.”

“But you’re a little shit,” Barret pointed out, “shouldn’ta been a surprise for you.” Cloud patted his shoulder. 

“I’m no good at this either,” Cloud assured him, “but knowing Marlene if she’s keeping a secret, it’s probably not that big a deal. Now Denzel…I’d be more worried about Denzel. If he’s hiding stuff it’s probably because he doesn’t want us to worry.” Barret shook his head and finally turned to look at Cloud. 

“Do you really think I’m overreacting?” he asked. 

“No,” Cloud said, “You have good reasons, but I still say we give them a shot and leave them along for an hour or so. Worst case scenario: we come back and the bar is on fire.” Barret knew it was supposed to be a joke, but his brow furrowed more. 

“I just…I worry that I left her alone for too long,” Barret said, “that I worried too much about the planet, when I shoulda been with her…with you.” Cloud smiled and touched Barret’s jaw gently. 

“Marlene doesn’t,” Cloud said, “and I don’t either. You did your best and she knows that. She knows you never stopped caring, not once. She was always on your mind, everyone knows that.” Barret nuzzled into Cloud’s hand. He started when he heard the doors to Seventh Heaven slam shut. Cloud’s hands held his head in place. 

“Don’t look,” Cloud said. 

“Why-”

“It’s a father’s day present,” Cloud said, “for us.”

“So…why can’t I see that?” Barret asked. 

“Because you can’t keep a secret,” Cloud said, “they’re trying to surprise us and Marlene reads you like a book.” Barret stared Cloud down, then dissolved into guffaws. Cloud hugged him and smiled. letting him laugh into his shoulder. 

“You know,” Cloud said, “we could still make that reservation…if we take Fenrir and disregard a lot of traffic laws.”

“I hate that thing,” Barret grumbled, but was still smiling when Cloud nudged him.

although as much as i adore tifa, i can’t not give the flower to marlene. she’s such a darling. isn’t she like, 4?

i know that giving the flower to marlene gives +5 to barret’s relationship level, but i’m not aiming for the barret date because it’s No Homo + Weird Joke About Marlene Garbage lmao

i think i’m going to go for the tifa date scene in the golden saucer. mostly because aeris’ scene is the default so most people would probably get it anyway, barret’s is gross and yuffie’s is also gross considering how fckn young she is.

so tifa date it is!

Canon CLOTI! Q&A

After this, I will flood the tag with nice pretty art and gifs. First, let’s look at canon statements that are unambiguous and support Cloti. 

Yes. Black and white statements. No room for interpretation. 

Let’s start off with Cloud’s feelings for Tifa.

Q: Did Cloud have romantic feelings for Tifa?

A: Yes.

Evidence:  Before leaving the village, he boldly called to Tifa, a girl he liked romantically, and declared he would become a SOLDIER. - 10th AU, pg 12.

Q: Does Cloud still hold romantic feelings for Tifa?

A: Yes. 

Evidence:  By the way, Tifa did not realize that Cloud was holding feelings for her until he informed her in the Lifestream. Even though she was called and it was just the two of them, she can be quite clueless. (Ultimania Omega pg 25.

Q: Were Cloud and Tifa an official couple at the time of FF7?

A: No. Cloud was completely unaware of Tifa and Aerith’s feelings for him, and Tifa was unaware of Cloud’s feelings for her. 

Evidence:  [FFVII] Both Aerith, who is forthright, and Tifa, who is demure, have feelings for Cloud but he is none the wiser to them.- Cloud Strife Profile, 10th AU pg, 36-41


By the way, Tifa did not realize that Cloud was holding feelings for her until he informed her in the Lifestream. Even though she was called and it was just the two of them, she can be quite clueless. -Ultimania Omega pg 25.

Q: So Cloud and Tifa both held romantic feelings for each other but never knew it?!

A: Yes. 

Evidence:  For many years, Cloud and Tifa have been holding favor for one another. At last facing the impending final battle with Sephiroth, they confirm together their feelings of desire towards one another. -25th anniversary Tifa’s memorial words

Japanese Text:  長年、互いに好意を抱いていたティファとクラウド。セフィロスとの最終決戦を目前にようやく、相手を求める気持ちを確かめ合えた。

The word for “favor” here is “koui” or “ 好意” Notice, this is the same symbol appearing in the relationship charts of Cecil and Rosa (canon romance) Celes and Locke (Also canon) Squall and Rinoa (canon romance yet again) 

So yes, Cloud does infact share romantic feelings for Tifa. So “Cloud doesn’t love Tifa” is completely false as we have evidence that shows he does. 

Q: Why is there not a two way arrow of “ 好意 ” show up for Cloud and Tifa in the character chart?

A: While not on the relationship chart, it is confirmed in the 25th ultimania. Cid and Shera says “Treats unkindly” even though he treats her affectionately near the end of the game, and Lulu and Wakka are listed as “Childhood Friends” despite being married and having a child in the second game. 

The relationship chart, also shows that both Aerith and Tifa has “ 好意 ” for him. It is, without a doubt, this word is romantic and Tifa is the only one he shares it with. 

While not appearing on the relationship chart, we ARE told that Cloud and Tifa have shared  好意 for each other, for many years.Thus showing the two way  好意 shown between Squall x Rinoa, Cecil x Rosa, and Locke x Cecil is romantic and applies to Cloud and Tifa as well. Cloud loves Tifa, it has been unambiguously confirmed. 

Q: Isn’t who Cloud loves up to the player?

A: No. If you treat Tifa horribly, it does not change that Cloud has romantic feelings for her and informing her in the lifestream. 

Evidence:  By the way, Tifa did not realize that Cloud was holding feelings for her until he informed her in the Lifestream. Even though she was called and it was just the two of them, she can be quite clueless.-Ultimania Omega pg 25.

The lifestream scene within the game is unaffected by the date mechanics. You could have went on a date with Barret, and the lifestream scene will not change. Cloud has held feelings for Tifa for many years, and informs her of them in the lifestream. 

Q: I thought they only shared feelings in the optional HA HW scene. 

A: No. Cloud and Tifa become aware of their feelings for each other in the lifestream. They only confirmed them “without words” in the HW scene. The affection points have no bearing on the lifestream scene. 

Evidence:  She ventured into Lifestream together with Cloud. Amidst the course of him trying to ascertain his memories, they became aware of the thoughts/feelings which each other was holding. -Tifa profile 10th AU.


By the way, Tifa did not realize that Cloud was holding feelings for her until he informed her in the Lifestream. Even though she was called and it was just the two of them, she can be quite clueless. Ultimania Omega pg 25.

Q: But the HA HW scene is still optional!

A: This isn’t a question, but ok. Tifa and Cloud still become aware of the romantic feelings they’ve been holding for each in the lifestream, and move in together because of them. This is unaffected by who you dated in the OG.

Evidence:  In FF7, Tifa is the only one who knows Cloud’s childhood, and furthermore, she holds the key to people involved in the story of Nibelheim’s burning down, which is also depicted in CC. She and Cloud came to realize their feelings for each other in the end of the story, and live together in AC and DC.- Tifa profile Crisis Core Ultimania.

Q: How come Tifa doesn’t know if Cloud loves her in CoT then?

A: Because there are no facts that say why, this is left up to interpretation as to why Tifa thinks this, what is NOT left up to interpretation is that we are told Cloud does love Tifa, they became aware of these feelings, moved in together because of them, and no amount of interpretation or shipping opinion will change these facts. In otherwords, it is speculation to say that because Tifa asks this question, Cloud must not love her, but this speculation can not negate Word of God. 

Q: Was Cloud actually happy with Tifa?

A: Yes. In fact he was so happy, it made him anxious. Cloud experienced a peace living with Tifa he never experienced before, and this made him afraid. Cloud worried his peace would shatter.

Evidence: In Advent Children The happier he is now, The more Cloud is tormented by painful “memories” of the past. -10th AU Cloud’s profile


The more he realizes how happy he is living with Tifa and the children, the more the fear of losing that and regrets toward the past trouble Cloud… -10th AU Cloud’s profile 


The happier Cloud is, the more lonely he becomes.”-Nomura in Distance


Cloud tried to move on once…but he was hurt by the losses he experienced in the battles he fought in the game story. even after all of that he still found a peaceful life and that made him scared. he lost it all once already and he could lose it all again. even though he was there he couldn’t do anything to prevent it the last time. so the happier he is, the more lonely he becomes. - nomura : distance. 


Cloud never had a candid personality to begin with, and although he started living with Tifa and even started working, he obtained a peaceful living he’s never experienced before, and this conversely made him anxious. And in the midst of this he contracts Geostigma himself, and rather than being able to protect the people dear to him, he instead was forced to face his own death, and so ran away.”-Nojima in AC prologue.

Q: If he was so happy with Tifa, why does he always look so depressed and brooding in AC?

A: Because he has PTSD? Because true love can’t cure mental illness? My opinions aside, it’s because he’s scared he’ll lose the peace and happiness he has with her. 

Evidence:  Nomura: Cloud is scared that the peace he has now might shatter, so he is living on his own.


Nomura: Even though he found peace, Cloud has lost a lot of people dear to him up until this point. Not only that, but looking at Cloud’s history, this is the first time he’s experienced a ‘peaceful’ environment in the true sense of the word. Cloud is a character who will always keep thinking, regardless of what’s going on around him.


Nomura: In the past he meet Zack, his best friend, and Aerith, someone who was important to him, but he lost them, so wonders if his present peace will also shatter one day… Since something might happen while he’s around, he left everyone behind and is doing delivery work on his own.

Cloud is a character who keeps thinking no matter what is going on around him. He became so happy, he feared it being ripped away from him. So he left. Anything about him leaving because he loved another woman is pure speculation and interpretation. 

Q: Cloud was hanging around Aerith’s church before he got Geostigma, why? 

A: Because he’s a character who keeps thinking, because he’s worried his peace will shatter, or that something might happen while he’s around. 

Evidence: Nomura: In the past he meet Zack, his best friend, and Aerith, someone who was important to him, but he lost them, so wonders if his present peace will also shatter one day… Since something might happen while he’s around, he left everyone behind and is doing delivery work on his own.

Q: So Cloud was already gone before he caught Geostigma?

A: Well, yes and no. Cloud became more isolated when he began overthinking and blaming himself, but he always came back home. Cloud left, stopped answering his phone, and completely disappeared once he caught Geostigma. 

Evidence:  Now running a delivery business while helping out Tifa with the newly opened “Seventh Heaven” bar, Cloud, Tifa, Marlene and Denzel lived together like a family. However, when Cloud contracts Geostigma he disappears. Behind these actions lies feelings of guilt towards his past failure to protect people who were important to him, but through his battle with Kadaj’s gang, the legacy of Jenova, he regains the courage to face reality.- FF7 10th AU Cloud Strife profile


Because he contracted Geostigma, Cloud left Tifa and the children, and began living in the Slum church. FF7 10th AU Complete Timeline


AC Prologue: “Nojima: Cloud never had a candid personality to begin with, and although he started living with Tifa and even started working, he obtained a peaceful living he’s never experienced before, and this conversely made him anxious. And in the midst of this he contracts Geostigma himself, and rather than being able to protect the people dear to him, he instead was forced to face his own death, and so ran away.”

Cloud ran away because of feelings of guilt, fear, anxiousness, and catching a fatal illness. This is fact. 

Q: So when Cloud is healed of guilt and Geostigma, what happens?

A: He realizes where he is meant to live, and moves back in with Tifa and the children. 

Evidence:  When he awakes, there was his friends. There were the children, freed from their fatal illness. Tifa and Marlene, and Denzel asking for Cloud to heal his Geostigma — his family were waiting. Engulfed in celebration,he realises where he is meant to live.- FF7 10th AU story playback.

At the end of a long struggle, she gently welcomes back Cloud on his return home after settling things with himself.-Tifa’s Dengeki profile.

And in AC they live together, with Barret’s daughter Marlene and a boy named Denzel. Though there was also a period later where Cloud lived away from them after having contracted Geostigma, they finally reach a commune with each over and return to living together once again.-Crisis Core Complete Guide Keyword

Aerith lends her power to the people suffering from Geostigma in Edge, and personally provides for Cloud’s recovery. Geostigma is cured. Cloud returns to Tifa and the children. FFVII 10th Anniversary. 

This right here is what prompted me to write this. 

So there you have it. Cloud loves Tifa, he is happy with her, he found a peaceful live with her, he gets cured at the end of the movie, realizes where he’s meant to live, moves back in with Tifa and the children. 

Things I'm hoping to see in the FFVII Remake

anonymous asked:

to anon: how do you know that anyone in FFVII is exclusively straight? to me, saying that Cloud is straight because of the LTD is as much headcanon as saying he's bisexual or gay because of his CANON date with Barret. maybe Clerith is a confirmed canon pairing, but no one's sexuality is. for all you know, half the cast is pansexual. just because there isn't clear evidence of diversity doesn't mean straight is the default.
