The Mad King
Default FFVII Fanfiction

Ok, so basicly this thread is here to post up your favourite Compilation or OG related fics. This is not a thread for advertising yourself, though I suppose I can't stop you if you try. Anyway, post links to your favourites, and discuss them.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3782200/1/Green_Dreams

This one is one of my favourites. Its called Green Dreams and is basicly a time travel fic where Cloud gets a chance to go back and fix things. There are a lot of fics like this one, but this is the best IMO. It has a CloudxSephiroth theme to it.

CloudxSephiroth as in...yaoi? :/

I have a few really great ones that could list.

Speaking of going back, here's on that I like called, "Once More, with Feeling." http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4813784/1/

Cloud doesn't just go back in time, he goes back to when he was a kid and lives his whole life over again. I haven't finished it, but it's kind of cute. It can be really uber cheesy at times, so if that's not your thing then watch out. lol

No pairings, either, as far as I can tell, but then I haven't finished it yet.

I second the Green Dreams rec, it is truly a good fanfic. But as far as the time travel genre goes, my favorite is without a doubt “Eir’s Tomorrow”: fanfiction.net/s/4223348/1/Eirs_Tomorrow

I think this is the best time travel fic in the FF7 fandom, hands down. Despite being based upon the old beaten “Cloud goes back in time to fix what once went wrong” premise, it still stands out. Few fanfics I’ve read are as haunting and creative as this one. The author’s alternate character interpretation is great; I lost count of how many times I re-read the first few chapters just because of her view on Sephiroth’s childhood, and how he interacts with Hojo, Gast, Ifalna and Cloud. The plot is very gripping, with a lot of Nordic elements incorporated to it. As for romance, there are no pairings yet besides the occasional ZackxAerith, though the author has mentioned that the story will turn into SephirothxCloud at some point, and perhaps it will have some mild hints of yuri as well (between Tifa and Elena no less, lol).

Fantastic and short Cloud character study.

I've read that one too! I think its awesome. I might argue CloudxReno, or maybe Clack, as a pairing for it, but only in a vague manner.

And Green Dreams is kind of Yaoi, but not to an extreme.

Haven't read that one. I'll have to check it out.

While we're on the subject of time travel fics, heres one about Zack that I like.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4858524/1/Yesterday_Again

It hasn't been updated in forever, but what is there is good. Thre are tons others to name, but I'll dig them up a bit later.

"Eir's Tomorrow" is wonderfully well-written and the earlier chapters are, as you said, thought-provoking. Her take on the character's internal lives and thoughts is always interesting and believable. However, I do find it hard sometime to follow her changes of scene and work out where we are and what's happening.

I've read Stupid Dream and liked it.

I've said it before: anything by Karanguni. I don't care so much for the yaoi but her writing is amazing. Another wonderful writer is Thorne.

The writers posting on 'Archive of Our Own' are almost uniformly worth reading.

Ok, heres a good one by Mr.Ite.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3122672/...Jenova_Project

Its basicly a very faithful retelling of FFVII. It ignores the compilation, and assumes Jenova controlled Sephiroth. Overall you'll be hard-pressed to find a better retelling of the OG, except the OG itself.

This is my entry. Hope you don't mind Naruto/Final Fantasy VII crossovers.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3857905/1/

The story so far is spread over 3 books but isn't finished. I hope you enjoy.

I forgot to tell you the name and intro.

Legend of the Heavenly Kitsune: The Lifestream Volume - Book 1: A Problem With ShinRa.

Naruto's life is turned upside down as he and Gaara are chosen by Kyuubi and her group to fight people who wish to end their own worlds. The are then thrust into the world of Final Fantasy VII. (I know it's a crappy intro.)


LOTHK: The Lifestream Vol - Book 2: Holy and Meteor

Second book of the volume. Naruto has discovered that Sepherioth is being controlled by Jenova cells in his body. As they continue the journey they discover new friends and strengthen bonds. But the adventure is only just beginning.


LOTHK: The Lifestream Vol - Book 3: Rise of a Legend

As the final act draws near, Naruto and Gaara strugle against Jenova from her conquest on the planet. However there is tension between Aeris and Tifa over who claims Cloud first. The conclusion to the battle for the life of the planet draws near.

Default As long as we're talking about fanfiction...

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.

My two absolutely favorite FFVII fanfics, set in the CC timeline, are those by Amarissia:

Madness of Angels

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4066102/1/

and Not Wrath of Gods

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5039432/1/

They're both great multi-chapter fics and have everything that I like about a FFVII fanfic: angst, action, suspense, conflict, love

You were right, it was good. I literally read it in two days. I can't say that about many fics.

Well, sometimes a little humor is needed. So here it is.

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?
