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;
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”
And the smile that inspired “Cloud smiles”
And hopefully more cute expressions in the remake!
