Okay, here goes.... ^_^;;;
New and improved version is up!
This post is mainly to help me out with writing since I lose everything left, right and centre like you wouldn't believe.
All are welcome to read this post, but there will be massive spoilers, just so you know ^_^;;
BlindAC!Cloud Fic planning!!!
Woot! 2 hours and counting, and this is finally posted!
(Sorry for the wait artimusdin! took longer than I thought!
Its up now and I'll probably get the first bit of fic up for you early in the morning.)
Edit: Some extras added to snippets. I've also finally figured out how to format bold and italics, making for smoother reading :)
This entire thing was thought up after I asked artimusdin if she'd seen any Blind!Cloud fics around. She sent out a rec request, but it seems no-one has written any (deterioration to the body yes, but not actual blindness).
So I decided I'd try to write something.
Then the plotbunnies attacked en masse, chained me to the computer (still not sure what hit me), and demanded fic of epic proportions.
So here we are!
Please do be patient with the plot! This will be a fic about blindness, but it may be a long time before the blinding actually occurs, since there are a lot of things that must happen first.
Also, I cannot format to save my life -other than what you've already seen- so help would be extremely appreciated!
Ok, details first I think...
Past = Seph/Zack, Z+R, Z+C leading into S/Z+C+R.
Present = implied/onesided Cloud/Tifa. Maybe eventual Tifa/? (Not sure who this is yet. Rude or maybe Barret? Leaning more towards Rude though.)
Main pairing = Sephiroth/Zack/Cloud/Reno. Hopefully (if i'm not biting off more than I can chew.)
It was going to be S/Z/C, but somehow Reno just *fits*. Don't (kill me) ask me why or how, all I know is the bunnies took over and I couldn't not have him there after about a paragraph... *grumbles* Sneaky bastard! Needs a leash, hmmmm...
You'll see how this pairing works out later. Can't go giving all my secrets away at once!! -_^
There may be smut, there may not. Will depend on if I can write it.
I suppose we'll soon find out, no?
This will be set after AC - I was going to set it in between the game and AC, but my brain broke pretty quickly when I tried.
Um yeah, I've never played FF7, but I have watched Last Order, Advent Children and read every fic I can get my hands on, repeatedly. Sadly I can't get my hands on a copy of AC Complete, so if I get anything seriously wrong there or gamewise please do tell me! (Same goes for spelling etc. I do my best, but I am only human and sometimes mistakes slip through. I don't have a word processing program either, so it makes it a bit harder )
Major plot spoilery goodness ahead!!! Turn back now if you don't want to read!!!!
Anyone still here?
Oh well, that won't stop me!!! *evil grin*
Here be the plot line, with a few thought/feelng/situation snippets for your entertainment! Aaand also to keep me on track when writing about those points, *sheepish grin* scatterbrain is very, very scattered!
Well, have fun! ^_^ Suggestions and con-crit are always very welcome!
If this turns out to be a crock of shit, don't hesitate to let me know!! I'd hate to waste both your time and mine. ^_^;

--text-- = thoughts
# Cloud moves out of 7th heaven.
He needed open spaces, the thrill of battle pushing him to his limits. He was made for it after all. It was driving him nuts trying to fit into everyone else's idea of how life should be. Gods he'd tried, he really had; but it wasn't enough.
Some wild part of him longed for the days of hunting Jenova and Sephiroth's clones. When they'd camped out most nights, hunting and foraging for food, earning money for their ever dwindling supplies by taking down hunts. When he'd felt alive...
# Travelling, monster fights, missing the dead. Perhaps regaining lost memories?
# Back to Edge.
Request/job from Reeve or Rufus (via Rude and Reno? Tseng even?) to clean out the monsters in Midgar Ruins (Hojo's experiments, SOLDIER level, difficult to kill. Perhaps some only come out at night like in FF12?)
> Bargains for hazard pay.
> Camps out @ and fixes up/fortifies Aeris' church. Cloisters or maybe an upper level turned into a somewhat decent home? idk.
# Ganged up on by particularily nasty (pack of) monster(s), results in blindness.
>Is pretty wounded also. Misses call in. Reno finds wandering near edge of ruins ?days?hours? later.
> Monsters = Malboro with highly poisoned spikes on tentacles? idk, suggestions welcome here!
(And before any more bunnies bring it up... No. No tentacle raping of Cloud! Just no. No carrots for you! *kicks back into bunny oblivion*
(complete with flashbacks, angst and nausea)
No one ever tells you that there are some things that materia and potions just can't fix.
Like when a mutated Malboro swamps you with status effects mid battle, then proceeds to rake your eyes out with hundreds of tiny poisoned spikes covering it's tentacles. Fuck I wish I'd killed that sonofabitch slower.
They're saying I might be permanently blind.
It's not a status effect.
Apparently, Mako-enhanced healing only takes care of 'surface wounds', which is anything about 3 inches into the skin. Materia and potions are used in conjunction to heal any organs or further damage, depending on the seriousness of that damage. Materia first, then potions for the worst.
Eyes are organs.
Fortunately, thanks to the enhancements both my cornea have already healed. Unfortunately, the inner parts of my eyes are a mess and a direct potion won't work because there's no longer any access to the internal damage. They're worried that just knocking back a potion could heal some areas faster than others, which would leave me permanently blind anyway.
And then there's the poison that's still inside my eyes to consider.
I'm really fucking glad they've got me on these tranqs. Even if they aren't working properly, they're at least taking some of the pain away.
I really should have killed that fucking sonofabitch a helluva lot slower.
> Confirmed blind (semi-permanent or permanent? Hmm....)
> Tifa offers to take care of him. Cloud refuses.
> Turk assigned to help Cloud (Enter Reno)
Why was he wasting his time here again?
Never mind that Strife was the hottest piece of ass he'd ever seen, it was no reason to risk his balls or his head by making the blond lose his temper.
Oh yeah. Orders.
Couldn't walk out on the job or he'd get 'retired' like Valentine did.
--Would serve this asshole right if I did though. He'd fall down a hole and break his leg. Wouldn't that be funny?--
He laughed darkly. Sometimes, just sometimes, Reno really hated his job. Intinctively he dodged, missing the fist that appeared where his head had been. Okay, so laughing was not a good idea, Blondie was pissed. No thanks for saving the bastard's life either, just a fist to the face.
"No fucking way are you staying here!" Blond-and-broody hissed, shoving Reno almost off the edge of the platform and readying First Tsurugi.
The Turk rolled to his feet, discreetly sliding a knife and his electro-rod from their hidden arm-sheathes. --Wow, Blondie's beyond pissed if he's swearing. Alright, slow and easy, don't palm 'em yet.-- Couldn't let Strife see him armed or this could get real ugly, real fast- Wait a minute...
--Shit! How could I forget? The bastard's blind!-- He smirked, then sighed. Much as he'd like to try and kick the blond's ass, enough was enough. He had a job to do.
--Fucking Rufus! Just when things were getting interesting...--
"Look yo, I ain't happy about this either. But orders are orders. Besides, I'm here to help you finish the job, not babysit your ass. So shut the fuck up and calm down already, cause neither of us have a choice."
# Adjusting to life and pushing self to regain skill with swords/battle. Weird shit happens.
And Just For You! *hearts*
Reno "This is some weird shit yo,"
Aeris Relax Reno. Sephiroth's sane, Cloud's having fun and Zack's running interference. Everything is fine."
Reno "Yeah, but- Wait, whatareyoudoing?! Oi! Aeris!"
Aeris "Making their dessert silly! Oops, maybe that was a bit too much chocolate...Oh well. *tosses bottle over shoulder and picks up camera*
Now hold still, I want pictures first....
*devilish grin* Boys! Dessert's ready!"
