OK so people like me who lull around on Ao3 and and constantly F5 the Sephiroth/Cloud Strife tag, there was a fic series that just recently got deleted "In Which Cloud Time-Travels into Sephiroth's Head" by an account named JustAPlaceToPostMyDrabbles
It was pretty big but also really creative and fun and I think the user's account was deleted? Maybe? No one knows.
The user SaoriSanada5 grabbed a google cache of it and reuploaded it here https://archiveofourown.org/works/30591794
They're trying to find them, see if it was accidently deleted like what happened to Telling Time with a Broken Watch, if the original user got suspended, or just if the original writer wanted to delete everything for their own personal reasons. If you know anything, please comment on the fic and let SaoriSananda5 know.
I imagine, now that he's met baby trooper Cloud, Genesis in FTB will start experiencing overprotective big brother syndrome. Never mind that the Cloud he knows, the older and much more capable version, is fully capable of kicking anyone's ass and therefore the Cloud he is caring for has the potential to kick anyone's ass with the right training, if anyone so much as looks at baby Cloud they are playing Dodge Fireball. Sephiroth better keep his hands to himself
Oooooh yes. Especially since Cloud is still so squishy faced and unenhanced. Genesis due to the future has a lot of paranoia. On the other hand, after the stabbing question Genesis has a few *different* concerns as well.
A little detail to remember; the Sephiroth of the past isn’t the Sephiroth of the future. From his perspective Cloud is the fourteen year old younger brother of one of his best friends. He doesn’t view Cloud as his rival, view Cloud as the person he’s basically centered himself around. All Cloud is to him is Genesis’s younger brother who looks like he will have a promising SOLDIER career.
