Seriously internet? Is there really not one buddy cop AU about Sephiroth and Zack? Even from the millions upon millions of fics in which they are fucking, there is not one? It has to be out there, just...Fuzz-style Tiger and Bunny AU and I'm sure that if I found it it would be terrible but goddamn, the serious uptight superior officer paired with the goof-off hyper rookie is too ridiculously perfect
[ first there's the sound of something heavy being set into the ground. then a sigh follows. ] Never seems to end, does it? [ he sits down, muttering to himself ] And here I thought it was finally done with.
[ You see a man at a ranch, tending to some massive birds-- chocobos. They've been free range for a while now, but he's just gotten done going through a million random encounters bringing them back...guy up and leaves for a while, don't they? [ He pats her beak, she shakes her head, as if indignantly agreeing. ] I guess that's a no for a ride this afternoon, huh? Can't say I don't deserve it
[the fal'cie certainly have picked a convenient time to screw around with her, haven't they? they'd just been about to go up and pay a visit to orphan, after sojourning on pul-- gran pulse for awhile...someone out in awhile. her knuckles are itching to connect with someone's jaw.] Hope? Fang? Snow? If any of you are here, report to me immediately. We're going to find a way out of here. Now
[Soon enough, an anthropomorphic mouse is shown on the video feed, looking equal amounts apologetic and optimistic.] Hiya everybody! I know things are real confusing right now with the influx of newcomers... [Pause... He brings a hand to his chin, looking thoughtful.] Gosh... Am I missing anything? Well! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! I'll be happy to help in any way I can
[It's late. Ish. It's very very late when you're a 5 year old for whom bedtimes are practically a law.] Um- -nevermind. I'm sorry if I bothered anyone. [She's 5 . And that's halfway to 10 and...message she leaves her room carrying a blanket, attempting and failing to find a not-covered-in-water place in the sanctuary itself and giving up, curling up in mid-air instead. It feels safer here.]
Pardon me. I'm looking for someone. A man in white and blue armor with light hair. [She cannot recall his name, and that troubles her. However she knows that he's important to her and that it's vital to find him as soon as she can.] I don't know if he's here, but if anyone should meet him, please tell me?
[A communicator in a crystal. After seeing Terra try it, Kain is likewise looking into the crystal to find out what he can do with it. He stares intently into it for a moment and frowns. He's not sure...remember.] I wonder, does anyone recall anything at all from before they woke? [A small pause. He sincerely hopes that this is something normal around here.] ...Perhaps even memories of... dying
