Trying to get my writing groove back:

Name two (or more) characters from any of my fandoms (please no crossovers for this, guys) and I'll tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex (if they are the sexing type)
2. Who has prettier (or just more attractive) hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them
6. The most tragic possible ending for them
7. What I enjoy most about their dynamic
8. What I find difficult to write about them

(Note: If it's a pairing I can't make work for this, I might ask you for another pairing, but I'm a pretty liberal shipper, so, feel free to go crazy!)

Ummm, Yuffie/Cloud?

(And if not, Cloud/Zack/Aeris?)

Going to do both :D

Okay, Cloud/Yuffie.

1 - Yuffie loves to turn things into a slippery slidy wrestle sex match and Cloud doesn't complain at all; he may have no idea who is winning but it feels good.

2 - Cloud. It is actually really fine and Yuffie loves it when the sun shines through it first thing in the morning, or the way it looks like warm honey by firelight.

3 - It is more a sequence of events really than a single catylist - they are both prone to disappearing (Cloud, for alone and head time, Yuffie for adventure and thievery and such) and when they return the other one gives them a hard time - if Yuffie goes off Cloud will make noises that he shouldn't be with someone so much younger than he is and they kick off from there. If the other way round Yuffie sulks and picks fights with strangers until Cloud can muster some form of apology.

4 - Cloud. He has never really shaken the feeling that he doesn't deserve love, or that he somehow causes those he loves to die. It would hurt completely, but at the back of his heda there would have been a 'you should have seen this coming,' muttering.

5 - It turns out Godo has a bastard kid somewhere who has a much better ruling temperament than Yuffie. Yuffie defects the throne, but still holds a high position in Wutain government (something like Continental liaison official, which really means go hang out and adventure with anyone you want Yuffie, as long as we get some benefits from time to time.) It also means she can, and she does, take over the WRO when Reeve retires. She and Cloud don't marry, but Cloud builds a house with the help of Cid, which starts out as Delivery service headquarters, but ends up as the Yuffie'n'Cloud shag pad (Yuffie's words) and they live there until they both grow old. They have one kid, a daughter, who is disgustingly well behaved in Yuffie's opinion. Yuffie makes do by getting into heaps of trouble with Denzel and Marlene.

6 - Cloud has a relapse of Mako poisoning, for about three weeks in which he constantly calls out for Zack. Yuffie stays with him, but is overwhelmingly upset every time he reaches for Zack, not her. When he wakes up Cloud has suffered partial amnesia, not remembering their relationship. Not able to deal with this Yuffie takes up residence in Wutai, taking over when her father dies. She deals with the WRO only and refuses to PHS to Cloud directly. After about five years of this she jumps off of the pagoda. She doesn't die, but breaks bother her legs and she can't walk anymore. Cloud never remembers their relationship and suffers frequent delusions and hallucinations, before dying at the age of about thirty-five.

7 - Yuffie is young, but she is cunning and blunt - Cloud looks for shades of meanings in everything where Yuffie tends to believe things only have a few reasons behind them - she can't really be anything but straightforward, which is good for Cloud. He, in turn, can help her slow down sometimes and think things though.

8 - Initial beginning romantic relationships. I can see them as friends and lovers but the transition stage is hard for me.

Um. Have I told you lately I love you?

Seriously, this is fantastic and perfect. You've managed to outline a really beautiful relationship here, XD And 6 is just... heartbreaking, and I love that you point out Yuffie couldn't be Empress if they were to have a stable relationship and just... Yes, all of it. :D

1 – not exactly sex, but they always sleep close enough afterwards that a thought couldn’t fit between them – Aeris has nightmares (she doesn’t tell them that they are about the Planet, or Cloud and Zack dying. Her death isn’t a nightmare, just a sad far away knowledge.) Cloud is starving for contact and likes to be held tightly by them both – hard enough that he can feel the imprint of their arms or hands after they move away. Zack likes to be at least partially under someone; he loves curling an arm over theor backs, and staring at the ceiling – Zack sometimes doesn’t get enough sleep.

2 – Aeris, actually. When light from the church shines on it it has coppery strands in it and it is so light and fluffy – Zack’s hair is scruffy cute though, and Cloud looks adorable all mussed up.
3 – On bringing someone else into the relationship – they all want to coax Sephiroth to join them, but Cloud is insecure about himself and is still anxious about forming close relationships with people even though Aeris and Zack both try their best to let him know how much they need him. Zack cannot stand how isolated Sephiroth is and Aeris gets a fleeting flash of fear and trepidation every so often when Sephiroth is mentioned.
4 – Aeris. She would be the best attuned to the lifestream if one or both of the others died and would still be able to feel them around.
5 – AVALANCHE hits Shinra HQ destroying the labs utterly as well as the SOLDIER barracks. A few SOLDIERS survive including Cloud, Zack and Sephiroth but most of the department heads (bar Lazard and Tseng) die. With no place to go, Cloud and Zack go live with Aeris in her church and become jack of all trades while she has fun bossing them around. Cloud likes helping her plant and garden while Zack loves selling flowers to people. Eventually they bring Sephiroth into the relationship (having not gone crazy because he hasn’t been anywhere near JENOVA. They earn enough money to set up a flower shop chain; the HQ is in Midgar, but Cloud delivers all over the continent and Zack and Sephiroth become the public faces of the stores. They grow old together.

6 – Zack dies protecting Cloud who takes on his personality and who then has to watch Sephiroth kill Aeris, then being left without any of them to live out his life. Oh, wait…

7 – I like Cloud’s insecurities about being pulled into a relationship, and the way Zack is so golden and good to him, and how Aeris bosses them both around sweetly – even though she totally is the boss.
8 – They break my heart, so sometimes struggling through writing that can be hard.
