Cloud smiles.

I just wanted to go through all the times Cloud smiles around Tifa(that we know of) and it’s so cute because his smile to her in Advent Children inspired the song “Cloud smiles” ;o;

Last Order: 

He lifts a collapsed Tifa up in his arms, and upon seeing her aware of him, he smiles gently. -Cloud profile, FF7 10th AU, section: in Last Order

Case of Tifa: 

But Tifa remembered Cloud’s last smile. It had the kindness that made her think everything was fine.

***

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.”

***

“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 English version: 

“You’ve always had me” 

“I mean from tomorrow on,” Cloud answered with another smile. 

***

Cloud gazed into Tifa’s eyes again, and finally smiled. It had a kindness to it, as if to say “everything will be alright now” 

Advent Children

And the smile that inspired “Cloud smiles” 

KH2 manga:

And hopefully more cute expressions in the remake!

Response

He never really got much mail. The only people who wanted to send him anything, really, had been Miri and Gild, and he normally got most of that sort of communication from Jeremy anyway. It never bothered him, it just wasn’t something he really thought about, so when two different letters fell in front of his breakfast he regarded them with a frown. He almost passed them over to Jeremy, recognising Miri’s handwriting, but they definitely said his name on the front. One, a big red, angry letter, was definitely for him. His heart sank. A howler. What had he done now?

The screaming letter actually blew his hair out of his face with the velocity at which his aunt’s voice was coming at him. He shut his eyes tight, his face burning bright red for receiving a scolding in front of the whole school. He almost wasn’t listening to the content, he was so mortified that Miriam had even done this to him. He heard about calling her fat and he didn’t really think the response was warranted when he hadn’t even meant it in a bad way. She knew he hadn’t meant it to be offensive.

He looked across at Jeremy with a scowl as if it were his fault. The look on his cousin’s face made him pay more attention.

Twins? Twin burritos or… Babies? Oh. Pregnant. Probably not with food then.

She sounded hysterical. Her voice three different notes of angry and upset. It was an unsettling kind of noise, but what unsettled him most was that her hysterical voice was shouting about Sol. About being with Sol. Girlfriend. “No, no, no.” He said aloud as his aunt’s voice rang in his ears. He shot another scowl at his cousin. “Are you kidding me?”

With the entire school looking at them, Loxley grabbed a hold of his cousin and roughly stood them both up. “Out. Now.”

This comparison has only been made a few times, but I think it fits motre than the other comparisons made: while Hillary is Dolores Umbridge, Trump is Gilderoy Lockhart. Lockhart was mostly a fool, a blowhard, and a con, and his followers were mostly blinded by his big talk to see that. Umbridge, on the other hand, was a despicable, power-hungry person through and through, while trying to play off as being "sweet" and "kind".

I will forever want justice for every female character who was demonized by fandom because their canon ties to a male character was deemed a threat to a popular slash pairing.

   “Listen to him,” said the Healer, taking Lockhart’s arm and beaming fondly at him as though he were a precocious two-year-old. “He was rather well known a few years ago; we very much hope that this liking for giving autographs is a sign that his memory might be coming back a little bit. Will you step this way? He’s in a closed ward, you know, he must have slipped out while I was bringing in the Christmas presents, the door’s usually kept locked… not that he’s dangerous! But,” she lowered her voice to a whisper, “he’s a bit of a danger to himself, bless him… Doesn’t know who he is, you see, wanders off and can’t remember how to get back… it is nice of you to have come to see him -”
