Its kinda bugging me that I can't find any fanfiction where Cloud succeeds in joining SOLDIER. It seems like an obvious story idea to me, but near as I can tell nobody has done it. You guys seen any fics like this?
I know, there are plenty that aim to get Cloud into SOLDIER. Most timetravel fics do it too. The writers never seems to get around to it. Cloud just always ends up getting trained by someone for 30 chapters.

I know. I've read one or two time travel ones where Cloud gets into SOLDIER, and it looks like thats the route Green Dreams is going to take as well. But I have never seen a fic, good or otherwise, that has Cloud make into SOLDIER without involving time travel. Who knows though, maybe I'll write one myself once my FF.net account starts working again. If it does.

I'd like to make a fic where Tifa decides to go with Cloud to Midgar and they both get in (Cloud and Tifa aren't the strongest people mentally, but 90% of their insecurities stem from each other so, them becoming closer friends as kids makes me buy it) But I'd have to make a new account. Otherwise it'll flood with complaints from people from my Shikamaru timetravel fic that I abandoned but is still getting new fans.

Vincent was a Turk, wasn't he? Did Turks and SOLDIER interact for training like that? I mean, I guess that might be a stupid question as far as the story you're referencing goes, as it is a fanfic and not canon anyway :P

Here is a AU fan fiction with Genesis being the one who burned Nibelheim down instead of Sephiroth.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6595872/1/

Final Fantasy VII: Another Side;Has both Sephiroth and Zack with Advalanche.Also if you notice Cloud keeps his CC personality since Zack is alive in this story as well.Cissnei is also in this story as well and is apart of Advalanche as well.She is also going to be paired up with Sephiroth.

Necroing this thread but for anyone who wants good fanfiction about Yuffie here it is.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8867886/3/Yuffie-s-Guide-to-Everything

Its by the same author who is doing Final Fantasy 7:Another Side which is a fanfiction where Genesis is the one who burns Nibelheim and Sephiroth actually is a good guy.Plus Kunsel and Cissenei are in the group as well.Zack is also alive and well in this fiction.

Yuffie's Guide To Everything is a humour based side story which shows how Yuffie views all her teammates.It just has a few chapters but its shaping up to be comedy gold.She does a good account of Cloud's personality.Also note Cloud retains his personality that he had in Crisis Core since Zack didn't die in this story.

Alright, it's about time this thread was brought back so here's my contribution listed by word count:

Multi-chaptered fics:

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8281862/1/The-Turks-Way -4 chapter timetravel fic focused on Vincent

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5207260/1/Against-All-Odds -AU where Cloud's a chocobo. It's incomplete and the author will probably never finish it but it's still worth reading.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7041333/1/Valentine-s-Day -AU where Vincent is a woman. It's a lot more interesting than the summary may suggest.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7965292/1/By-a-Fraction-of-a-Degree -Another AU where Zack lives, which does a good job of integrating canon while still mixing things up. It's likely to wrap up within the next few weeks.

Lots of deadlines rushing down on me, so of course I've been reading three interesting OC fics lately.

. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5580928/1/C-Est-La-Vie. Reno/OC. It's actually pretty well put together, even though I'm not fond of 'dominance battle' romances. Somebody from general Shinra intelligence gets pulled into the Turks.

,https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9447005/1/That-Third-Class-SOLDIER in which a SOLDIER cadet tries to make the grade while a young Genesis tries to get promoted to 1st.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8755687/1/Anxious-Worn-Out-and-With-a-Bad-Concussion. Unknown daughter of a dead Turk signs up for SOLDIER dressed as a boy, finds out when she gets there that they accept women anyway, but has to stick with it. Plays a lot of things straight, but is very self aware.

Does anyone know any non romantic Genesis centred fics worth reading, by the way?

It rather saddens me to see the bookworms of this forum are so quiet!

I was cruising around FF.net the other day for no particular reason. I was reading the summary of every story, when for no particular reason I decided to try this one. Titled Black on Silver, it's an early Crisis Core era AU in which Sephiroth returns from a three day mission in Wutai... with a wife! It is still in progress, but frequently updated. I thoroughly enjoy its mix of seriousness and utterly silly comedic moments.

So yeah we've already mentioned The Jenova Project by Mr. Ite which I recently read and OH MY GOD. Bear in mind, I have done my own novelization that is complete. It comes nowhere near the level of quality and detail as his. Like there's only one way to describe how it makes me feel:

I'll admit I mainly read CloTI AUs and AerTi fics(the latter of which are unfortunately rather rare). I did read this one hilarious fix that satirized the OOC way many fix writers write the FFVII characters, i.e., Barret was a ridiculous black stereotype who called himself B-Dawg and wore tons of bling, Aerith was a zombie(parodying Aerith resurrection fics), Cloud was ridiculously girly, etc. I unfortunately can't remember the name.

I know exactly the one you mean, and it was written collaboratively by Pen Against Sword and Mengde. Sadly, it isn't up on either of their ff.net accounts any more.

Hey, have any of you guys read the fanfiction story "By a Fraction of a Degree" done by findthetiger129 on the Fanfiction net? That's such an awesome story, and there's also "Cirque De ShinRa" which I've also read.

Come to think of it, I read lots of FFVII stories on the site itself, and Kingdom Hearts.

By a fraction of a degree just so happens to be one of the fics I linked in my first post on this thread. I'll probably post some more later once I've compiled some favs I haven't already put here.

Here's a timetravel fic that I'd really like to recommend: Sinnatious' "The Fifth Act". It's also posted on FF.net , although not all the chapters have been uploaded yet. Although the writer writes slash, this particular fic is gen. (But there is a Genesis/Cloud sidefic you can find here, set sometime between chapter 18-19) To summarize, post-AC Cloud breaks a Time materia while fighting a Zolom and gets sent back in time, CC-era, just in the middle of the Wutai war. Awesome shit happens.

All I can say is that her writing is fantastic. The characterization of everybody especially Cloud, the inclusion of in-game items like Ribbon, made-up believable logic on some in-game things like why some original game materia can cast more than one kind of spell and the materia in CC can't, all bundled up into a thirty-something chaptered story whose plot has more twists and turns than a neverending road full of hairpin curves. Genesis also gets a huge part in this, whee! And minor characters in CC like Kunsel and Luxiere actually play a not-so-small role in it.

Please please please, just don't take my word for it. If you have enough time, YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY read it. This is easily the best ever FFVII genfic I have stumbled across. Ever. I think the only reason why it hasn't found it's way on reclists yet is because it was just finished this year. That is all.
You were right, it was good. I literally read it in two days. I can't say that about many fics.
I read it too. It was phenomenal.
This is a bit of a necro, but I was randomly in the mood for some FFVII fan fiction yesterday (and I haven't actually read FFVII fics in years) so I was randomly googling for a list of recommended fics and it brought me to this very thread.

Anyway, I binge-read the entire thing. It was excellent. Now I want more :monster:

Yeah, I loved findthetiger's fic and we used to do some RPing together back in the Genesis Award days, but I don't know if she's still active in the fandom. Sometimes the names people use on tumblr aren't the same as their fanfic writing names and then I have no idea that they're the same person.

The Fifth Act left a hole in my life and I need recs D:

Filters:

- Cloud centric
- Faithful to the OG, canon divergence/ alt ships OK
- Lengthy
- Well written

I've got a few FFVII fanfics in my FF.Net account(same name as this one here), though there are some spelling mishaps, I should warn you now, since I'm still not that crash hot on my spelling, if you're interested. *I have 56 stories put up and working on twelve at the moment, 'cuz the rest of them are finished already*.

Or, if you like, I can set up links of them to make things easier for you.

Last I checked, findthetigher set up another FFVII fic, featuring the beginnings of the Turks, though I suspect she's busy at the moment, but yeah, she's still active on fandom. But yeah, I favorited her and her "By a Fraction of a Degree" story since I love it so much(and she pretty much finished the FFVII alternate universe story before the actual FFVII franchise was finished by the guys who made it in the first place in just two years from start to finish).

I tend to read only from AO3 because I've got the display settings right on there and I can bookmark/ prefer the format (I actually went to the trouble of finding The Fifth Act on there rather than FF.net) but feel free to link them :monster:

I see. In that case, I'll link them now.

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/105811...-Story-of-Dirge-of-Cerberus-Final-Fantasy-VII Number one-(working on a somewhat a remake of it, but I'll link that one another time).

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10609547/1/Special-Episode-of-Reno Number two-(novelization of an episode I could never find on Youtube or anywhere else, so I had to guess from the script format).

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10580180/1/Not-Yet-Time Number three-(first one I did, but it's not much).

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10588972/1/Red-Condor-in-Need Number four-(just for fun, I guess).

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10594587/1/Familiar Number five-(short but a bit emotional).

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10714608/1/Episode-of-Legend Number six-(another novel version of an special episode which again was never found on youtube or anywhere else).

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11317448/1/The-Most-Wanted-Sequel-that-will-never-come And finally, number seven-(heh, I guess this numbered of the actual game's number itself, and this one was when the announcement of FFVII Remake was done, so you don't have to read this one if you think it's too much).

I know I said a few, but I pretty much forgot how many I actually wrote, and I know that a few means three, not twenty.
