TWO HEADCANONS YOU HAVE FOR YOUR MUSE YOU NEVER TOLD ANYONE:
i’ve sorta discussed it with someone ? but i hold a strong belief that, despite nobody mentioning it, cloud tries to pass on zack’s legacy. it’s difficult, but necessary. he heads back to gongaga some time following the end of the original game ; possibly post-advent children, even, and he tells zack’s parents what happened. cloud also tells stories about their time together to marlene & denzel. he likes to think they would’ve liked spending time with him.
i’ve briefly touched on it, but never properly written it out. contrary to popular belief, cloud wasn’t really friendly with tifa as a child. he was bullied by her friends, and spent most of his time playing alone – or waiting to be noticed by someone. i think ( – from what we see ) cloud’s mother was a kind ; caring woman. she probably spent a lot of time with him, going on walks, baking, reading stories, etc. she had to put up with his endless rambling about how cool sephiroth is – & how cloud’s gonna grow up and be a hero, but she never really minded.
