Super unpopular opinion... I don't want Alec and Magnus to adopt Madzie. I think Cat is perfect for her.

strongly agree | agree | neutral | disagree | strongly disagree

And every single follower of mine now… *gasp* But… but… but she did reblog fanart with Malec and Madzie. She said they were cute and adorable and all…. how…

True.

But there is a difference between fanart and stuff actually happening on the show. Like, let me get this straight: I am all for Malec adopting like every kid on this planet in the future. Seriously. They both would be great dads and the possibility of them lying on a couch on a lazy sunday, kids between them and just having quality family time f.e., yup sign me up for this. BUT… right now I just don’t want this. I know that Malec adopting Madzie is some kind of “running gag” in the fandom and as I said before, it would be adorable and all. But they just got together, they are still getting to know each other, they haven’t even moved in together….just… let them fucking alone for now and enjoy their time together without them having to worry about kids and all. There is still a war going on so please, the quiet and intimate moments are already rare because of that. 

Later on, as I said, they can adopt every kid that runs into their arms. Seriously. But right now, just leave them alone and let them explore their relationship more and see where this will go from there on.

send unpopular opinions!

..

Ima say this and move on.

I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE THINKS ABOUT MY SIMBLR. I have my reasons for catering to black simmers/sims. If this is something that bothers you, you are more than welcome to unfollow.

With the OBVIOUS lack of content we get (whether from EA or CC creators) it appears we have to create diversity on our own.

I will NOT change what I’m doing to suit your needs/wants. If you don’t like locs/braids/curly/kinky hair, then there’s plenty of other cc to choose from.

I don’t want my black simmers having to beg another creator for diversity.

This cc stuff is a hobby to me, but in this hobby I will make sure that we don’t ever feel excluded. If that makes you unhappy, so be it.

Fun fact to point out for Ered and her dads. Also kind of a thank you to RT.

//She was almost always between them both when they were at the camp compared to being off-standish and aloof from everyone else the entire series, most of the time while being somewhat friendly here and there. She feels safe around them, they’re the only characters she’s shown to be okay with being touched by in a relaxed setting. So whatever they did to gain her trust? It was… probably gradual, overtime and generally with love.

//And keep in mind this is the same character that lost her blood parents for w/e reason which has heavily hinted to being abused heavily enough for possibly the FBI to step in, maybe even resulting in how they met. Just consider how she seems nervous around confronted or seemingly angry adults and finds being ‘threatened into submission’ normal. Along with highly abusive tendencies like manipulation whether subtle or otherwise throughout the series and what she did to Nikki emotionally in Ered’s episode was on near Nurf levels of what he did to Preston in the Egg Episode imo? It could really reflect her recovering from learned behavior.

//Regardless, they love each other a lot honestly I feel like even if Ered doesn’t say it outright in public maybe. But I’m sure she does in private or maybe even if it wasn’t at the camp, being comfortable with them enough physically and to boast about them, along with them being supportive and acting ‘cool’ for their daughter like with those little poses. Thus resulting in this thing I made as their half of the heart being gay pride and my Ered’s particular half being transgender, forming the love of this LGBT+ family.

//Thanks RT crew for representation on gay pride and LGBT+ themes in Camp Camp. ‘3`

Introducing a Character

It has come to my attention that not everyone understands the absolute necessity of a great first introduction?! Seriously, in writing, a first impression is everything. A good intro will make a character easier to remember, and really solidify whatever arc they end up progressing through during the story. Also, show don’t tell is the key to a great character introduction.

First things first. When introducing a character (please note this applies to main and support characters, not George at the cash register who has a single line of dialogue), you have three goals:

  • Who are they? Name, career, role, etc. Could be a first glance expectation/stereotype. We’re going for a first impression, and those aren’t always 100% accurate. Ex: student. thief. jock. babysitter.
  • What are they like? Personality-wise, mostly. A great intro will be fitting with who they are, what they value, etc.
  • Why are they important? Basically, their role in the story. Main or support? Hero, villain, or unsure?

And we’ll answer these questions with two good friends of ours: staging and dialogue.

Staging is the physical location or position of your character when we first see them. Body language should hint at their personality. Yeah, this is a place where we as readers might make assumptions. If you want to steer them one way or the other, you can drop hints or let your narrator make some assumptions themselves. Let’s say it’s Mary’s first day at her new school, and we want to introduce her to Carson. (PS: Mary and Carson are the creations of this moment, not previously made characters. So yes, this technique can be applied on the fly.) When she sits down, Carson’s head is buried in his arms and he’s sleeping on his desk. There are about 5 minutes until class starts. Is he lazy? Tired? Maybe it’s a medical issue? You can wake up Carson and find out, or if you want to drop a hint right away, here’s your opportunity. Examples:

We’re going for lazy. His hood (or hat) is drawn over his head. If he’s sleeping on a book, it’s closed. Other than that maybe the desk is empty.

We’re going to tired and overworked. His pencil is still in his hand and he’s sleeping on an open book or some sort of assignment. When he shifts position we can see pen or pencil smudged on his cheek.

And that’s show don’t tell through the medium of staging. Staging and some inventory, if you add a book or a pencil that gives even more hint at what they’re doing. We never said “he’s lazy” or “he’s exhausted” because we can see him right there at the desk sleeping. It speaks for itself. Even before he says anything, we have some hints towards his personality. Will these first impressions be proved wrong? Proved right?! Only time will tell. The important part: Mary’s taken notice, and she’s already formed some opinions. This will serve as the starting point for their relationship.

Similarly, the first dialogue exchanged between two characters should be out of the ordinary. This depends, of course, and there are exceptions. But typically you might want to avoid their first words being “Hi, I’m Carson.” Again, see if it can speak directly to who they are and what they want.

The kid jolts awake, then blinks at whatever book he fell asleep on as if it’s written in another language. The sharp intake of breath that follows sounds suspiciously close to a choked gasp. Then he’s whipping his head around the room. Around us, the rest of the students are still in various stages of milling with no obvious commitment to staying or leaving. I don’t recognize anyone, so I’m not entirely sure who he’s hoping to see. Finally, the kid turns a pair of impressive blue eyes on me. “Did I—” he starts, his mouth flopping open. “What class is this? Biology? Oh God, I’m so dead.”

I know you hear it all the time, but seriously. Don’t tell. Let a reader form their own opinions based on the words, the expressions, the reactions.  Well, from the top. Mary meets Carson. Again, I’m kinda whipping this up on the fly.

I double check the number by the door. Unless my schedule’s wrong, this is it. Biology. Frog dissection, reproductive cells, and Mendel’s pea pod experiment. Great.

Despite the heart-to-heart Mom and I shared, I sit by the kid who’s sprawled over his desk. One less person to talk to is always a plus in my book. Besides, if the back of his head is anything to judge by, it never hurts to sit by some eye candy.

I’ve just taken out my biology book when a pair of jocks squeeze past my desk and towards the back of the room. They bump sleeper’s desk, too, because a pen rolls from his stuff and hits the floor with a smack.

“Sorry dude,” one says, giving the sleeper a friendly back pat.

At the contact the kid jolts awake, then blinks at whatever book he fell asleep on as if it’s written in another language. The sharp intake of breath that follows sounds suspiciously close to a choked gasp. I eye him sideways. Dark hair, fair-featured. Then he’s whipping his head around the room. Around us, the rest of the students are still in various stages of milling with no obvious commitment to staying or leaving. I don’t recognize anyone, so I’m not entirely sure who he’s hoping to see.

Finally, the kid turns a pair of impressive blue eyes on me. “Did I—” he starts, his mouth flopping open. “Hey, what class is this? Biology? Oh God, I’m so dead. What class is this?” he asks again.

“Musical theory of the 1780s,” I respond automatically. The sarcasm in my voice is obvious to me, at least.

“What? Really?” Sleeper closes the bio book he was snoozing on and starts stuffing things into his backpack like a robber at a bank. For a sec, I’m frozen. I was kidding. I was obviously kidding. I shift my biology textbook into his view, then lift my eyebrows in telepathic communication. Dumbass.

“Oh. Oh, okay. Haha. Good. Thank God.” He leans back in his seat with a gust of pent up breath.  “Musical theory in a school like this? Funny. I should have known you were kidding.”

The conversation is over, so we lapse into silence. I take out my pen. Check the time. Two more minutes.

“Hey, are you new?” I glance back over at him, and his eyes are wide like that possibility had just struck him.

I give him another look. “Nah, I just always sit in the back.”

“Oh.”

I’m stuck between amused and downright embarrassed for the kid. I settle for a grin.  “Wow. You’re way too easy.”

Aaaaand first meeting complete. So what all can we guess about the characters based on all this? Yes, there was some telling. It’s not a crime. It should just be mostly showing and letting the reader interpret it as they want to. They’re not stupid. They can read into a character’s expressions if you put those hints in there.

Closing thought: Don’t tell us who these people are. Just show us. Yes, your viewpoint character is allowed to make observations and form opinions, but as long as you don’t impose their thoughts on a reader then it doesn’t fit the bad side of “telling.”

Also, don’t study this as if it were a formula. Action + Dialogue does not equal a great introduction. Sometimes the dialogue is first. Sometimes the action. Sometimes one of them is missing. Sometimes you’ve got a single word of dialogue and a few minutes of suspended action. Each introduction will be drastically different between different characters. It’s about a vivid, perhaps exaggerated first impression.

Cloti feels!

I just wanted to post some cute Cloud and Tifa stuff for all your cloti needs. Consider this a sort of…trivia? I guess? TRIVIA TO GIVE YOU FEELS!!!!!!!!

1. Cloud and Tifa liked each other romantically for years, and were completely oblivious to it until the lifestream scene in the original game.

For many years, Cloud and Tifa have been holding favor for one another. -25th Anniversary.

Incidentally, Tifa didn’t realize he held favor for her until he informed her in the Lifestream. Even though she was called out for it to just be the two of them, she was clueless? -pg. 25, Ultimania Omega

[FFVII] Both Aerith, who is forthright, and Tifa, who is demure, have feelings for Cloud but he is none the wiser to them. -Cloud’s 10th anniversary profile. 

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

Deep inside Cloud’s heart, feelings were hidden that no one knew about. Even though there were important memories to himself, many of them were forgotten. In the process of looking for the real Cloud, Tifa learns a lesson about the complexity of the human heart, and the feelings are earnestly transmitted. -FF7 Ultimania Omega, pg. 27

2. After becoming aware of their feelings for each other, they live together because of them in both Advent Children AND Dirge of Cerberus. Their romantic feelings for each other are still there and they still live together 3 years after the original game.

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.

3. The word used to describe Tifa’s feelings for Cloud, and his feelings for her, is the same word used between Cecil and Rosa (a canon married couple who are also childhood friends)

For many years, Cloud and Tifa have been holding favor for one another. -25th Anniversary.

長年、互いに好意を抱いていたティファとクラウド。

Incidentally, Tifa didn’t realize he held favor for her until he informed her in the Lifestream. Even though she was called out for it to just be the two of them, she was clueless? -pg. 25, Ultimania Omega

ちなみにティファは、 クラウドか自分に好意を抱いていたということに、 ライフストリームで告げられるまでまったく気づいていなかった。呼び出されてふたりきりになっているのに、結鈍感?

And as stated above, they move in together and live together because of these feelings that stay present all the way to Dirge of Cerberus!

4. After the end of FF7, Cloud was happy to start his new life and live with Tifa by his side.

“Cloud, you’re smiling.”

“I am?”

“Yeah.”

It all starts now. A new…”

Cloud searched for the right words.

A new life.”

“I’m going to live. I think that’s the only way I can be forgiven. We’ve been through … a lot.”

“Yeah…”

“But when I think about how many times I’ve thought about how I was going to start a new life, it’s funny….”

“Why’s that funny?”

“Because I’ve always screwed it up.”

“That’s not funny.”

“After this … I think I’ll be okay.”

Cloud became very quiet for a moment.

“Because I have you this time.”

“You’ve always had me.”

“What I mean is kind of different,”

Cloud answered with another smile. -From the novella Case of Tifa.

5. Cloud was extremely happy living with Tifa, and experienced a peace he’s never had before. Fearing he’d lose his happy life with Tifa and the children, (already established they like each other romantically) he became depressed and anxious. Once he contracted Geostigma, he left completely.

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

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. -Distance (The Making of AC)

Nomura:  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. -Distance (The Making of AC)

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. -AC prologue

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

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

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

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

6. He moves back in with Tifa and the children once his Geostigma is cured! And continues to live with her in Dirge of Cerberus. (Stated above, they live together because of their romantic feelings)

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.

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.

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. FF7 timeline 10th Anniversary

Cloud and Tifa

Cloud and Tifa are childhood friends, both born in Nibelheim. When Cloud leaves the village, he calls Tifa out to the water tower and promises that he will become a SOLDIER. At the same time, he is also made by Tifa to promise that he will come to rescue her if she is ever in trouble.

Following this, the pair experience many hardships, such as the Nibelheim incident which also appears in CC, and the Jenova War in FFVII, and through these the distance between them shortens. 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. In DC, they rush together to Vincent’s aid, in his battle against Deep Ground SOLDIER.
Crisis Core Complete Guide Keyword

Cloud loves Tifa

It is canon Cloud has romantic feelings towards Tifa, while it is unknown if he has any romantic feelings for Aerith. There is only fan speculation on the romance between Cloud and Aerith, while fact of Cloud’s romantic interest in Tifa that had GROWN to beyond her being his childhood friend.

First of all, it is confirmed that Cloud and Tifa have held romantic feelings for each other for YEARS.

These feelings of love first surfaced when Cloud was 14 years old.

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.

Confirmed. Cloud’s feelings for Tifa were romantic at the moment he called her to the water tower.

Even though Cloud was holding feelings for Tifa from some time ago, Tifa’s interest in Cloud did not start until the time when the promised was exchanged. It might have been her loneliness due to her surrounding friends leaving one after another, but more than that, it seems largely in part to him making the promise to become her hero.

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.

Confirmed. Tifa was completely unaware of Cloud’s romantic feelings for her.

These events are non-optional. He had romantic feelings for her when he called her to the water tower, he informed Tifa of these romantic feelings in the lifestream. This is unaffected by date mechanics and happens regardless of Tifa’s affection level.

Nowhere does it say these feelings for Tifa are past, infact, they are current since they move in together BECAUSE of these feelings.

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 Lockhart profile 10th AU.

Confirmed. Cloud and Tifa realized they held romantic feelings for each other in the lifestream.

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.

Here again, they realize their feelings by the end of the story and live together. These feelings are confirmed to be romantic, and were exchanged in the lifestream regardless of affection rating. [u]This is canon. Non-optional. [/u]

And just to add canon to our canon, it is confirmed that Cloud and Tifa held romantic feelings for each other for years before the Highwind scene. These years are unaffected by the date mechanics. The lifestream scene are unaffected by the date mechanics. But the HA HW scene is optional, but what is not optional is that Cloud and Tifa become aware of each other’s feelings (in the lifestream) and move in together because of these feelings. The LA HW (low affection high wind scene) taking place does not change that Cloud and Tifa have romantic feelings for each other and move in together.

The night under the highwind scene is also called FATEFUL.

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

The HA HW scene is confirmed to be romantic. They confirm their feelings of desire, these romantic feelings, together.

The Japanese text used, the word for favor is “koui” which means romantic favor and is the same word used to describe the bond between Squall and Rinoa, Cecil and Rosa, and Locke and Celes.

Here is the 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 Fateful Night the Two Share An event near the time of the final battle with Sephiroth, where Cloud and Tifa stay at the airship Highwind together. With this possibly being the end – an evening overcome with a flood of feelings becomes something special.

This night confirmed to be emotional and romantic. And is fateful that the two share.

Back to the Lifestream scene. Cloud says this quote which many were confused on if it was about his crush on Tifa.

Cloud: ….a sealed up secret…… wish…… Tender memories…… no one can ever know… -Cloud in the lifestream.

The True Wish Revealed

“As a young child, Cloud was rebellious and isolated from those around his age, so he would try to convince himself that he was special. As such, Tifa was important to him. A slight young love/childhood awakening of love* is revealed in the mental world - Cloud’s memorial words 25th AU.

It is romantic, as proven that Cloud informs Tifa of his romantic feelings for her in the lifestream.

Tifa: Talk to me. About anything, some important memory to you… Now that you mention it, why did you want to join SOLDIER in the first place? I always thought it was a sudden decision you made……

Cloud: ……I was devastated. ……I wanted to be noticed. I thought if I got stronger I could get someone to notice……

Tifa: Someone to notice you…? ……who?

Who……? ……You know who! ……You, that’s who.

Cloud: You…..

Tifa: ……Me? Why!?

At this point, it can’t really be argued that Cloud’s feelings for Tifa are ambiguous. They are confirmed romantic in the lifestream scene.

The HA HW scene was also featured on the For The One I Love page.

VII – The night before the final battle Thanks to Tifa, Cloud regains himself, and before the final battle with Sephiroth, without using words, he confirms with her that their feelings match. - For the One I love pg 20th AU.

It is argued that this is optional and therefore non-canon, since if you turn to page 232 it states there are two versions of the scene.

The date with Aerith is also featured on the For The One I Love page. However, unlike Tifa’s scene, Aerith’s date is stated on the same page to be optional.

VII – Secret date At the Gold Saucer, Cloud receives an invitation from one of his companions. Who comes around with the invitation is dependent on Cloud’s behavior.

Also when turning to the page listed it reveal that there are FOUR different versions of the date.

So why would the date be completely canon just because Aerith’s date picture was shown, but the HA HW scene be uncanon because it is optional? Even though BOTH scenes are optional, but only one is listed as optional and is, infact, the only one on the page listed as optional. 

Another argument that Cloud loves Aerith is the description of the For the One I Love page.

FOR THE ONE I LOVE Through the long journeys, the love of the protagonists develop. Occasionally they become separated, but the two’s value to one another gives them the great strength to overcome whatever crisis may come.

But, Cloud and Tifa’s scene is also listed on the FTOIL page (without the optionality) so would that not confirm that Cloud and Tifa have love for each other and their value for one another grows? Meaning that Cloud’s love for her does not diminish but in fact develops into something greater?

But let’s also factor in everything we read so far. Cloud has had romantic feelings for Tifa for YEARS. Cloud and Tifa also realize these feelings and move in together.

Cloud and Tifa described by the Crisis Core Keyword Collection says…

Cloud and Tifa

Cloud and Tifa are childhood friends, both born in Nibelheim. When Cloud leaves the village, he calls Tifa out to the water tower and promises that he will become a SOLDIER. At the same time, he is also made by Tifa to promise that he will come to rescue her if she is ever in trouble.

Following this, the pair experience many hardships, such as the Nibelheim incident which also appears in CC, and the Jenova War in FFVII, and through these the distance between them shortens. 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. In DC, they rush together to Vincent’s aid, in his battle against Deep Ground SOLDIER.

Cloud and Tifa’s love develop, they occassionally become separated, but the two’s value in each other allow them to overcome the crisis.

They become closer despite these hardships, they live together with two children, and when Cloud lives away from her for a time he does move back in again. Once more, their value in each other allows them to overcome whatever hardship they face.

While I’m at it, In a game called Itadaki Street Special, it was thought to be “C/A”  because of Cloud and Aerith appearing in the opening. However, scripts reveal that Aerith takes notice of Cloud’s feelings for Tifa.

Cloud: Tifa is wonderful. I, too, want to become strong. 

Aerith: Cloud has been yearning/longing for Tifa…

or

Cloud: Tifa is amazing… I wanna be stronger… as well 

Aerith: You look up to Tifa a lot, don’t you Cloud

Aerith: Tifa will make a good wife~

 Cloud: I wonder who… Tifa likes?


After the Lifestream scene, which has been proven to show Cloud’s romantic feelings for Tifa, after Aerith bares witness to the scene….

She desperately tried to talk to Tifa who was about to get intoxicated by the highly concentrated Mako. Guiding her conscious, Aerith took her into Cloud’s closed heart.

In truth, Aerith really wanted to do it herself. But she couldn’t carry out the task. That’s why she entrusted Tifa with it. She entrusted Tifa with all the feelings she had for Cloud in her heart. She entrusted them to the one that was going to “live” together with Cloud…

You did it, Tifa. Thank you… I’m a little jealous of you but, do take care of Cloud and the upper world.”

Tifa embraced Cloud tightly as he returned to his senses. Aerith watched as both of them returned to the surface while smiling like an affectionate mother.

Aerith is shown to be aware of Cloud’s feelings for Tifa.

Now moving on. It is argued that “Cloud wants to be reunited with Aerith in The Promised Land”

But, after he says he thinks he can meet Aerith in the promise land, Cloud has this dialogue exchange with Tifa.

As Tifa looked away from the sky towards the ground, she was fearful of the future. However, Cloud beside her chose to smile gently. It was a smile that she hadn’t seen before during their journey. Cloud noticed her gaze and asked, “What’s wrong?”

“Cloud, you’re smiling.”

“I am?”

“Yeah.”

“It all starts now. A new…”

Cloud looked for the right words.

“A new life.”

“I’m going to live. I think that’s the only way I can be forgiven. All sorts of things… happened.”

“That’s right…”

“But when I think about how many times I’ve thought about how I was going to start a new life, it’s funny.”

“Why?”

“Because I’ve always failed everything.”

“That’s not funny.”

“After this … I think I’ll be okay.”

Cloud was silent for a long time before he spoke again.

Because I have you this time.”

“You’ve always had me.”

What I mean is kind of different,” Cloud answered with another smile. -Case of Tifa; revised; released with ACC.

I believe it has firmly been established that Cloud has a thing for Tifa, but just for good measure, here’s another dialogue exchange the two have.

When Tifa and Cloud were alone, Cloud said, “It’s not like you to be troubled by your thoughts.”

“It’s… Just the way I am.”

“No. You’re much more cheerful and strong. If you’ve forgotten the way you were then, I’ll be there to remind you.”

“You really will?”

“Probably,” Cloud said blushing.

And we already know Cloud has romantic feeling to Tifa.

“BUT CLOUD WAS BROODING AND UNHAPPY AND EVEN MARLENE SAID THEY WEREN’T GETTING ALONG!!!”

This was after Cloud experienced a grief trigger and is a separate essay you can read here: The Psychology of Cloud Strife

Anyway, while living with Tifa he was happy and experienced a peace he never had before.

This is CANON.

Cloud and Tifa also lived together for several months before problems started, and we are TOLD why the problems started.

That Cloud was unhappy with Tifa is pure lies since they directly contradict what the writers have said.

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

“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.”

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

“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.”-Nojima in AC prologue.

In these quotes it states that not only was Cloud HAPPY living with Tifa, but the reason problems started was because Cloud was AFRAID he’d lose this peaceful and happy life.

“Cloud left to be with Aerith!!!!!”

No. He didn’t. This is once again speculation AND a complete contradiction as to why Cloud left.

It is answered that Cloud left because he got Geostigma.

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

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.

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.”

After defeating Sephiroth, after his Geostigma is healed, he moves BACK IN WITH TIFA.

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.

Cloud and Tifa

Cloud and Tifa are childhood friends, both born in Nibelheim. When Cloud leaves the village, he calls Tifa out to the water tower and promises that he will become a SOLDIER. At the same time, he is also made by Tifa to promise that he will come to rescue her if she is ever in trouble.

Following this, the pair experience many hardships, such as the Nibelheim incident which also appears in CC, and the Jenova War in FFVII, and through these the distance between them shortens. 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. In DC, they rush together to Vincent’s aid, in his battle against Deep Ground SOLDIER. 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

As for Cloud’s Promised Land…It is when he forgives himself, and has Denzel healed from Geostigma, his promised land is not with Aerith. His promised land is simply where he “meets” her, not reunites with her for all of eternity.

And, The Promised Land is suppose to be a state of supreme happiness. Aerith is the one who sends him back to Tifa and the children instead of welcoming him into The Lifestream like she does Kadaj. So it makes no sense that Aerith is his promised land and he’s still searching for her because he’s so lonely.

When Cloud awakes he finds his promised land, and goes back to living with TIFA.

The place where he awakens — That is Cloud’s Promised Land

As he sleeps, Cloud hears two voices. The voices of two people very dear to him, who are no longer with him. Playfully and kindly, they give him a message: he doesn’t belong here yet.

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,[u] he realises where he is meant to live. He realises that he was able to forgive himself.

And when he turns around — “she” is starting to leave. Together with the friend who had given Cloud his life. Cloud no longer has to suffer in loneliness … And so they too go back to where they belong.

Back to the current of life flowing around the planet —.

When Cloud awakes he finds his promised land which is described above in the bolded section. He does meet Aerith  in his promised land. He also meets Zack in his Promised Land.

Cloud goes back to living with Tifa and the children, while Aerith and Zack go back to where they belong. The lifestream.

So…who does Cloud love? TIFA LOCKHART.

Also for good measure, Tifa was purposefully developed to be the heroine to stay by Cloud’s side.

Nomura: No, originally there was only Aerith, and Tifa was added as another heroine later. To make up for Aerith dying, we needed a heroine who would be by the hero’s side until the end

anonymous asked:

I'm just wondering why you think CC is still together? I admit that I'm totally confused about the whole situation. While I do believe that D and C were close during Glee and I do feel that C has or had a major crush on D, I think things just got too complicated and they decided to end things. I can't see any of the players in this scenario put up with so much for so long? Eventually like in every relationship, you either step up or move on. No one is getting any younger here. Your thoughts?

Anon, there is so much more than a major crush. They have been together for more than six years.  And have survived the war they have battled for years. and sadly will continue to battle as it does not appear CC is coming out anytime soon. 

But I absolutely understand.  It is not easy to be a believer.  You really have to look at everything sold and see all of the flaws. On both of their sides. 

To me, the number one most telling thing is their complete avoidance of each other for two years. it makes no sense.  Add in the books, the songs, messages sent through social media.  It starts to be pretty easy to believe. And with very careful observation, you can see that its actually undeniable. It is not as hidden as you think. You just have to be really observation.

I opened my eyes opened in a flash when I realized I wasn’t in my own house, I looked at my surroundings as I remembered the events of last night. Andy and I had had “some fun” Andy and I had been together for a while now, ever since that one day when andy stumbled on set of a movie I was staring in and interrupted a make-out scene in an ally.Our whole relationship was perfect except for the parent factor. Andys parents loved me, but my parents were still haveing trouble accepting the fact that I was an actress and not going to college, let alone the fact that I was dating a so-called dangerous rock star. Actually when they first met andy the kicked us out of their house, they blamed andy for the fact that I had gotten piercings and tattoos. Now there may be one tattoo dedicated to andy but he had the same for me.We truly loved each other and it hurt me that my mom hated him and our relationship. andy stirred and opened his pale blue eyes that shone in the afternoon light. “hey babe, last night was fun” Andy stated then chuckled. “yeah it was” I said and rubbed my neck. “what’s wrong” andy said and rubbed my hands. I took Andys hand in mine and  traced the tattoos “ I was thinking about my mom”  looked down sadly “you know what I love you and your mom needs to get the fuck off her high horse and accept us because we are together, and if you want to change your look with tattoos and piercing I think it only adds to your beauty.” I smiled and kissed Andy lightly. then my phone rang i laughed dryly. “speak of the devil and doth shall appear”. I and picked up my phone “hi mom” and rolled his eyes “be strong babe” he whispered. for the next 5 minutes my mom continued to talk my ear off asking me “are you still with him?’ ‘why?’ ‘what does he give you’ ‘i bet he doesn’t even respect you’ ‘ he made you change’ ‘he is the reason you don’t have an education’. I felt tears prick my eyes as I looked over at Andy. I leaned over to him and put my head on his chest. he pulled me into his lap and kissed my head rubbing my back. He looked angry. he quickly grabbed my phone and brought it to his ear. “you know what if you cant accept out relationship then stay the hell out of our lives, we are very happy and (y/n) is the love of my life and I want to spend the rest of my life with her. she is amazing in every way possible. AND personally I think that her tattoos and piercings represent her and what she stands for it enhances her beauty. so fuck off.” and with that he hung up. I stared at him slack-jawed “ did you really mean all that” I smiled “of course and now I want to find ALL of your tattoos.” I squeaked as andy kissed me passionately he slid his tongue along my bottom lip but I denied. He slid a hand up my outer thigh and as he got higher he went to my inner thigh. I moaned and he took that moment to explore my mouth with his tongue I wrapped my arms around his neck and he deepened the kiss as he slid my shirt and bra up and over my head. he looked at me and tugged at the hem of his shirt begging slightly. “say it” he whispered him my ear them started sucking on my neck making his way down to my breasts and leaving butterfly kisses down to my stomach then started on my waistband  but before he could I unbuttoned his pants. Suddenly Ashley walked in and completely killed the moment “oh-oh my godI am” he started then laughed and soon cc appeared next to him I grabbed my shirt and pulled it on glaring at them andy threw his shoe at the door “GO AWAY” “fucking cock block” I muttered as I clipped my bra back on. andy kissed me then went to go lecture Ashley and CC. I just smiled to myself and shook my head.
