Dirge of Cerberus arc part 2

[Shelke turns away]
Shalua: I've been searching for you for so long.
[Shelke takes out her weapon, a pair of lightsabre-ish things with a tube connecting from one part of her wrist armor to another, and points one of the sabres at Shalua]
Shelke: Don't take another step.
Shalua: Shelke?
Shelke: It doesn't matter who I am or who you are. My current mission as a Deepground soldier is all that is relevant.
Shalua: Even though ten years have passed, you're still Shelke, my only sister!
Aki: [Shelke lowers and disables her weapon]
Shelke: Ten years. Has it been that long? The day they came to take me away, I was told I had potential. But those words were nothing but a precursor to a decade of suffering. They manipulated my mind until I was a shadow of my original self. The pain. The fear. For ten years I lived in a hell far deeper than any you could imagine. But look at me. I should be 19 this year. If I don't receive my daily dose of mako, this body wouldn't last a day. However, I don't consider myself the least bit unfortunate. Except that for so long I held on to a foolish thread of hope that someday, someone would come to save me.
Shalua: [sobbing, as she falls to her knees] I'm sorry, Shelke. I'm so sorry.
Shelke: It's time to put the past behind us. [turns on her weapon]
Reeve: Stop this!
Shelke: Reeve Tuesti.
Reeve: So you are Shalua's younger sister.
Shelke: Excellent. Now I can terminate both of you at once.
Reeve: Look at her. That's the price Shalua has paid fighting Shinra for the past ten years. She has given more than her arm, more than her eye. She has put her life on the line time and time again. All to find her lost sister. More than half her organs have been reconstructed. Not a day goes by when Shalua doesn't suffer the pain of a hundred souls. But still, she...
Shelke: Enough. I've... I've heard enough.
[She prepares her weapon; Vincent pulls out his gun]
Reeve: Stop!
[Reeve shoots at a sprinkler on the ceiling, which sets it off. Shelke moves forward to attack Shalua; Vincent runs to her side. Shelke stops her attack just in time]
Reeve: Vincent!
[The three of them leave the room as the sprinkler stops. Reeve reaches into his pocket]
Reeve: Use these.
[Vincent takes what was given to him and re-enters the room]
Shalua: Shelke? Shelke!
Reeve: Don't worry. The bullets will only sedate her. Let Vincent han
Aki: (TADA yay for scripts~ saves time)
Izzy: (hee)
Aki: (however apparently they fight Shelke anyway)
Izzy: (yeah, then Azul)
Aki: (yeah)
Izzy: (but Vincent handles it fine by himself)
Aki: (want me to copy and paste that too? XD)
Izzy: (please do? XD)
Aki: [Vincent and Shelke square off. Boss fight vs. Shelke the Transparent. After the fight, she's unconscious from the sedation bullets]

Shalua: Shelke!
[Shalua runs to her side and cradles her in her arms. Reeve and Vincent walk away]

[Gameplay. Vincent backtracks, but shortly thereafter stops; he turns around, as Azul comes crashing down through the ceiling]
Azul: We meet again. Answer me this. Do you know why you even exist?
[Vincent stares at him. Azul smirks]
Azul: Just as I thought. Ignorant to your own destiny. Very well. I'll show you what you really are.
[Vincent shoots at him, but it does nothing; a shield appears in front of Azul]
Azul: You think that toy can penetrate my armor? Enough of the games, Vincent. Give me the Protomateria.
Reeve: Vincent! Over here!
Aki: [Vincent fires at Azul a few more times before running away]
Azul: You can't run!

[Vincent and Reeve are running away; Azul is hot on their trail]
Reeve: Vincent!
[Vincent looks at him and nods. They enter a large room; Vincent walks over to an extremely large gun/rocket launcher on the ground, picks it up & fires it at Azul. The explosion sends Vincent and Reeve backwards]
Vincent: You shouldn't leave those things lying around.
[Reeve laughs; Vincent looks at Azul, who's still standing, albeit shieldless, and now HE'S holding the gun/rocket launcher. He's also laughing menacingly]
Azul: Well done. You have broken through my barrier.
Vincent: This ends here. Leave him to me. [Reeve leaves]
Azul: Long has it been since I faced a worthy opponent!
Aki: [insert some nice images from the actual scene]
Aki: [Reeve and Vincent talking, and one of Azul with a really stoned look on his face]
Aki: [Boss fight vs. Azul the Cerulean. At the end of the fight, Vincent is standing in front of Azul, whose gun/rocket launcher is now on the ground]

Azul: You may think this is the end, but...
[He falls down]

[Vincent is walking through the WRO HQ's lobby. Reeve approaches him]

Aki: Reeve: Where are you...
Vincent: Nibelheim
Reeve: Wait. Shinra Manor? But that is where... Understood. However, be on your guard. We have reports of Deepground units deployed in that area. If you wish to enter the manor in one piece, I suggest you use the sewer system extending from the old mako reactor.
Vincent: Sewer? How appropriate is that?
[Vincent walks away]
Reeve: Now, as for me and my feline companion... It is time we found out what Deepground is truly up to.

Izzy: (lol)
Aki: (sorry XD)
Izzy: (so, knowing Vincent, he'd just leave Reeve to fill the others in XD)
Aki: (yeah. Would Shalua be there, or would she be with Shelke? I forget because I didn’t actually read the script)
Izzy: (I'm thinkinggg)
Aki: (Sephiroth: *does a dance*)
Aki: (....spontaneous)
Izzy: (so, Shelke and Azul are being held in custody by the WRO, right?)
Aki: (yeah)
Izzy: (Vincent goes to Nibelheim, Yuffie chases after him, fuming that he didn't feel like telling anyone where he was going XD Saves his ass from Rosso at the last minute)
Aki: (....Shelke is still hard to figure out who's doing her-- I'm shelke, but you're vincent XD...SHALUA)
Izzy: (what XD)
Aki: (I made a mistake on the names)
Izzy: (it's fine. You're Shalua, who's Shelke?)
Aki: (That's...what I was saying XD)
Izzy: (oh)
Aki: (I'm Shalua, but you're Vincent)
Izzy: (ah. uhm. hmm. I can be her.)
Aki: (ok oo)
Izzy: (because the convos with Vincent, we don't really have to redo)
Aki: (right)
Izzy: (You know what I mean?)
Aki: (yeah)
Yuffie: *huffs, running off*
Izzy: (LOL Rosso. I love her. She's a psycho bitch XD)
Aki: (ahahahah yes)
Izzy: (with a buttrug)
Izzy: (XDD)
Aki: (Sora complains about the buttrug D: )
Izzy: (btw, Weiss and Nero)
Aki: (but...its a nice buttrug)
Izzy: (were the guys who picked Genesis up at the end of CC)
Aki: (NERO)
Izzy: (and yes it is a nice buttrug. aww XD well, I guess if I'm Hojo I have to be Weiss anyway)
Aki: (aahaha yeah. besides, I wanna re-write Nero's lines)
Izzy: (to make them gayer or something? XD)
Izzy: (.................................lollerskates)
Aki: (lol long story)
Izzy: (but they're Nobodies, so, it would actually make sense, too. Same with Nero's darkness ability)
Aki: (yeah)
Aki: (Riku: My darkness is cooler than your darkness!)
Aki: (Nero: OH YEAH?)
Izzy: (lolll)
Aki: (*shot*)
Sephiroth: *reclines against the wall*
Aerith: *healing everyone’s injuries*
Izzy: (omg, I totally heard Rosso say "If you manage to survive that, n00b..." XDDD)
Reeve: You're all fine. Good.
Aerith: *thumbs up, finishing up her job*
Shalua: *goes back to her computer*
Aki: (it's how she escapes reality XDD *SHOT*)
Izzy: (aww)
Cloud: And Vincent?
Reeve: He left. He wanted to get some more information, so...he headed for Nibelheim.
Cloud: ...!
Aki: (Sephiroth is refusing to react to the name. But whatever floats his boat)
Reeve: He went to find more information on Dr. Crescent's research.
Sephiroth: *sighs, seeing Shalua telling him to see what's on the computer*
Reeve: As for me, I'm going to look into Deepground's motives.
Izzy: (isn't Yuffie a bit pissed about getting left behind? XD)
Aki: (Yuffie....left already)
Izzy: (oh okay XD)
Aki: (tailgating XD)
Izzy: (lol kay)
Sora: ...Nibelheim?
Leon: *pauses* Your hometown here, right? *looks at Cloud*
Cloud: ...*nods* There's not...really anything...left of it.
Leon: *nods a little bit*
Sora: Well, of course there is! You remember it, right? *hands on his hips*
Cloud: Ah...well. I guess you could say that.
Tifa: *nods*
Sora: So, think of all the good times you had there. *grins* It'll keep it alive!
Aki: (Sora's. so. happy.)
Tifa: Ah...Sora. *decides not to be negative* You're right.
Izzy: (she was gonna be like "Well, there's a lot of bad memories associated with it too...")
Cloud: *interrupts* ShinRa had a place there where they kept lots of records, that's why--*stops and glances at Sephiroth, remembering that he's there*
Sora: I said good memories, not bad ones.
Cloud: ...I was just explaining.
Sora: *smiles* I know, but you gotta think positive, or you won't get too far.
Izzy: (Shalua should be alone in the room where Shelke is at some point. Not right away)
Aki: (k)
Izzy: (but when Shelke wakes up. So, we'll call it a day or so. Let’s have them discuss stuff first)
Shalua: So, you just look like her--- I was taken by surprise.
Sephiroth: I don't see why it should matter. It doesn't to me at least.
Reeve: Well, I have work to attend to...*nods to everyone and leaves*
Aki: (I had that scene planned since that picture XD)
Shalua: Well-- she had a son, but that's impossible anyway. *goes back to typing*
Sephiroth: *pauses, before going back over to Zack*
Sora: So...
Izzy: (XD)
Cloud: seems like Yuffie went after him. They'll manage on their own. In the's probably best we stay here...
Tifa: Shouldn't we contact Barret? I want to make sure Denzel and Marlene are all right.
Cloud: *nods*
Tifa: Can I borrow your phone? Mine got a bit banged up...
Cloud: *hands it to her*
Tifa: *goes to an empty corner of the room to make the call*
Aki: (cell or bar?)
Izzy: (what? her cell phone XD)
Aki: (because it would be cute if Marlene was like "Seventh Heaven!" --Bar number, or Barrets Cell?)
Izzy: (oh, the bar number)
Aki: (k)
Izzy: (oh, I wasn't actually going to RP the convo, but if you want to XD)
Aki: (Well, Marly wants to say hi to Tifa D: )
Izzy: (awww kay)
Marlene: Hi! Seventh Heaven!
Tifa: Marlene is that you? So you're safe...good.
Marlene: Oh, Tifa! Yeah, we're good! Are you and Cloud going to come and visit some time?
Tifa: As soon as we can, okay? Everyone’s back, but we have to help the WRO right now. I'm sorry we didn't come back earlier.
Marlene: It's okay! Come home safe though!
Denzel: Tifa? Tifa's on the phone?
Marlene: Yeah! Wanna say hi?
Denzel: *nods*
Marlene: *hands him the phone*
Denzel: Tifa!
Izzy: (....small children. <3 tho Denzel's getting big XD he's only a little younger than Kyran...)
Aki: (aww)
Tifa: I missed you guys...I promise we'll come back soon, okay?
Denzel: Yeah! Is Cloud there?
Tifa: *laughs*
Aki: (AW)
Tifa: I'll put him on. *taps him on the shoulder* Cloud, your biggest fan wants to talk to you.
Cloud: *takes the phone* It's me.
Izzy: (sorry, I just needed to XD) Marlene can ask for the phone back)
Denzel: We're taking good care of the bar while you're all busy! So come home soon!
Marlene: ...fork it over Denzel, I wanna talk to him too! *pouts*
Aki: (PFT)
Izzy: (awww XD)
Denzel: I'm not done, Marlene!
Izzy: (They're such siblings)
Marlene: Yeah, but you can't hod him allll day!
Aki: *HOG
Cloud: ....
Aki: (hod lol)
Denzel: *grumbles* okay, okay. Here's Marlene.
Marlene: Hi Cloud!
Cloud: ...hi.
Marlene: Like Denzel said, come home safe! We'll have hot cocoa ready day and night, kay?
Cloud: ...*laughs a little* Thanks.
Marlene: Welcome! *hands the phone back to Denzel and runs off to make hot cocoa*
Cloud: Is Barret there?
Aki: (uhm Seph kinda has to break the moment by collapsing soon...just giving fair warning)
Denzel: No, he had to make a trip for work, but when he goes out Mr. Johnny comes by to help out.
Izzy: (okay)
Cloud: ....Johnny? ...ah.
Izzy: (yay NPCs)
Aki: (YAY XD)
Izzy: (you remember Johnny, right?)
Aki: (yes)
Izzy: (kay XD)
Cloud: Well, tell Barret to call me when he gets back.
Denzel: Sure!
Aki: -start collapsing sequence now, but Cloud can ignore it, he's given permission to-
Aki: (uhm. He was thinking over Nibelheim, actually. That's why I thought I'd give you fair warning-- he asked Shalua what Nibelheim was XD)
Izzy: (oh right. Yeah, it's fine)
Tifa: ....Cloud.
Aki: (hang on need head medicineee brb, you keep typing)
Cloud: Well, I hope you're--*glances at her, catching the anxious expression on her face* Something's come up. I'll call again later. Take good care of Marlene.
Denzel: O-okay!
Aki: (the bigger, more important things that he remembers would probably cause some sort of pausing/collapsing)
Izzy: (yeah)
Aki: (that's all I was thinking of)
Cloud: What's going--
Zack: *runs over to Sephiroth* Hey, what happened!
Shalua: ...! *looks up from her computer* Amnesiac, right?
Sephiroth: ...*holding his head*
Zack: Partial, but--yeah, why? *tries to help him sit up*
Shalua: ...You know a lot more-- but I was talking to him about Nibelheim and Lucrecia...He seemed a little taken aback when I mentioned her, but Nibelheim made him go quiet.
Cloud: You what--
Tifa: Cloud! This was bound to happen if we didn't say anything. Don't blame her.
Shalua: -! I'm sorry...I’m missing critical pieces of this situation..
Izzy: (asdlk;sadlksadl;asdlk; Cloud gets irrational when it concerns Sephiroth -_-)
Aki: (yeah)
Tifa: Don't be sorry, he's just--it's...really...complicated. *frowns*
Shalua: He just had this look on his face-- like he was trying to remember it, but he could seem to.
Tifa: It's...probably better if he doesn't.
Shalua: I'm sorry for bringing it up, then. *sighs*
Zack: Hey. Pull it together. You're stronger than that.
Aki: (was that for Seph? XD)
Izzy: (yeah)
Sephiroth: ...*just pushes himself back up, not really paying attention to anyone*
Aki: ('s still weird seeing him sit)
Aki: (His poor back)
Tifa: *glances at Cloud* We could try to explain, isn't the right time.
Izzy: (gtg for dinner soon D: but this is good. We made a lot of progress)
Sephiroth: *leaves the room, just wanting to take a few moments elsewhere*
Aki: (yeah)
Zack: *sighs*
Aki: (*patsyou*)
Zack: This is going to be a tough one.
Cloud: You don't think--
Zack: Hey. Calm down. Getting anxious is only gonna make things worse.
Aki: (He only remembered fire, but not that he was the one that caused it)
Zack: I said I'd take care of things. Remember?
Cloud: .....
Zack: *raises an eyebrow, waiting*
Cloud: ...yeah, I remember.
Shalua: ....However...*thinks for a moment, before going back to her computer*
Aki: (She's like "HYPOTHESIS BRB")
Izzy: (XDDD I love herrrrrr)
Aki: (XD)
Zack: I'll make sure he doesn't break anything. People I know seem to have a habit of doing that when they're upset. *goes after him*
Sephiroth: *still just outside the room, but walking around the corridor, looking around*
Izzy: (this makes me think of "Samantha, Who?" XD except it's "Sephiroth, Who?")
Aki: (XD)
Izzy: (lollllllll you know that show, right?)
Izzy: (XD)
Aki: (I think so)
Izzy: (about the lady with amnesia who finds out she did all these bad things before)
Aki: (yeah)
Izzy: (ahaha)
Aki: (XD)
Zack: You all right? Hah, well, stupid question.
Sephiroth: ...*glances at Zack* I guess I am. I'm just confused.
Zack: No wonder.
Sephiroth: There's fire, but I don't know where, or why. I'm not sure what happened. I apologize.
Zack:'s fine. I know I said before we left it might not be a good idea for you to come along, but I didn't know it would be this bad. Sorry.
Sephiroth: .....Don't say that to me. I wanted to come-- I have no reason to be in Hollow Bastion.
Zack: isn't it your home?
Sephiroth: I....know everything that happened there. I...Don't like what happened there. Even if the things I did here were horrible-- I'd still like to know why people don't look at me.
Izzy: (WTF ZACK do not say "Curiosity killed the moomba")
Aki: (XDDD)
Zack: And what would that accomplish?
Sephiroth: Perhaps...some peace could come from it. Things left unresolved...never heal. And an open wound is only hindering.
Zack: ...*nods*
Aki: (LOL "DONT LET THE PAST BRING YOU DOWN" totally unintentional)
Zack: So, if things can't be resolved...what do you do then?
Sephiroth: Well, I guess I'll just see what some rest can do.
Zack: Fair enough.
Aki: (XD)
Zack: Just one thing, though...A lot of them--*jerks thumb back to the door*--are living with their own unresolved issues. I guess I am, too. But sometimes living can be atonement in itself. Everyone just does their best to give back to the world the things they've been given. Just saying, the little things we did here, helping out...they mean something. Even if they seem small.
Sephiroth: *nods a bit*
Zack: *shrugs and grins* You're probably tired of my preaching by now.
Sephiroth: I don't mind it. It's letting me stay grounded. Now, let's go give our three and a half cups to the rest of the recipe, I suppose.
Zack: ahah! *slaps him on the shoulder and heads back*
Izzy: (XD I can see him making cookies.)
Aki: (me too XD But, I guess he appreciates Cloud, even though it's only one way XD)
Izzy: (oh, Cloud XD he drives ME crazy)
Aki: (XDD Somehow, Seph can put up with him)
Izzy: (I dunno how they all put up with him. ahahah and Tifa's there to keep him in check)
Aki: (XD)
Sephiroth: ...*stumbles forward*
Aerith: You seem happy. *looks at Zack, smiling*
Zack: Hmm....I'm going to bake some delicious cookies.
Aki: (XD)
Zack: *takes her hands and twirls her around* Maybe I should consider a job in therapy. Cooking therapy!
Aerith: *laughs, spinning* Why's that?
Sephiroth: I said let's give our three and a half cups; I wasn't implying that we bake away our issues!
Zack: Aww, but it smells good!
Izzy: (sakl;salk;sadlk;da;lk I love them XDDD)
Sephiroth: Yeah, but there's no oven around...
Izzy: (all three of them)
Aki: (XD)
Zack: We can remedy that. *turns around and announces loudly* After this is all over, we're baking cookies, got that?
Aki: (I love how no one but Seph and Zack get it XDD)
Tifa: .....*giggles*
Cloud: *stares*
Aerith: yup!
Sora: Riku can make the premium frosting!
Riku: *rolls his eyes* Is this really the right conversation topic right now?
Sora: ....
Shalua: It'll take a while for Vincent to get there and come back...You may all rest-- we also have a few spare rooms in the complex, so...If you need to sleep, I'll show you there.
Tifa: *nods* Rest might be a good idea...we've got a lot to catch up on.
Izzy: (We're assuming that they dropped off Cid ahead of time so he could check on Shera. both of them XD)
Aki: (yeah)
Izzy: (the woman and the airship lol. So he'd come back when Cid arrives in the game, which is later)
Aki: (yeah)
Sora: Well...C'mon guys let's explore! *drags Riku and Kairi off*
Aki: (.....saw that coming)
Tifa: Just don't leave the building, okay?
Sora: Okay!
Izzy: (wouldn't Shalua be like "so why is that kid tagging along with you?” XD I think Reeve would have said something but he was busy/distracted)
Shalua: ....*too busy staring at how odd the group seems*
Aki: (....uh a little shocked. Like, when they're fighting it's not weird, but when they step back and look at it...they really are XD)
Izzy: (...yep XD)
Tifa: something wrong?
Shalua: ...Oh, nothing really, I'm just surprised that that kid is here. *laughs*
Tifa: Sora is...something, isn't he? *laughs too* He may seem carefree, but...he's been through a lot.
Shalua: *nods a bit* Well, he's happy, but he's got this really....serious look in his eyes.
Tifa: He had to start fighting at a young age...not unlike some of us.
Shalua: *nods, smiling* Well, it's good that he seems to think more about the positive aspect of everything, still. You had two more party members, but I'm guessing they had other business?
Aki: (Reno and Yazoo)
Izzy: (
Aki: (they came, remember? They needed a sniper)
Izzy: (and crap I forgot about them x.x sorry T_T)
Aki: (no, they went to Rufus XD)
Izzy: (uhh yeah, where did they go? XD oh right. Shalua would recognize Reno. She had a lot of run-ins with the Turks)
Aki: (Reno ran off tho, the second they got there)
Izzy: (yeah, just saying)
Aki: (yeah, she probably didn't even really see him very well)
Tifa: *nods* It's...been a while, everyone's got things to catch up on. We were away because of some...circumstances beyond our control. *sighs* It seems like strange things have been happening all over the place, lately...*glances at the others, then back to Shalua* did you notice anything...strange about the Deepground troops?
Aki: (would Shalua know about Hojo's presence?)
Izzy: (no, nobody does)
Aki: (k)
Izzy: (not until Vincent fights Weiss)
Shalua: They...
Aki: (k)
Cloud: They're Nobodies.
Izzy: (...thanks for the insight >.>)
Shalua: *brows furrow*
Izzy: (poor Shalua XD Someone needs to explain)
Shalua: ...Nobodies are...?
Tifa: ...ah.
Izzy: (I was thinking Leon could put in a few words since he hasn't said anything)
Leon: *made himself a sandwich somehow, before speaking up* Well, they're beings without hearts-- I assume you know what a Heartless is?
Izzy: (XD sandwich)
Aki: (XD)
Izzy: (they could explain everything, actually...because Heartless began to appear right after Cloud and the others suddenly disappeared)
Shalua: Very vaguely. I did a little research...but...not much.
Leon: Well, Heartless are beings made of darkness who steal people's hearts.
Aki: (I'm sorry, I don’t have the attention span to explain XDD)
Izzy: (it's fine, Tifa was going to say more anyway)
Aki: (k)
Tifa: *nods* There were none around here...until recently. Within the past year, if I'm correct. A Heartless is created when someone gives in to the darkness in their own heart....A Nobody is an empty shell left behind by that heart. Still...such things weren't really supposed to exist here. It's hard to say exactly. Sora would know more about it, since it's, well, his calling. He's the one chosen to fight them. I'm sorry. This is probably all very confusing.
Shalua: Oh, no, it makes sense so far-- I'll ask him about it later. *smiles*
Tifa: ...speaking of which, he's got Riku and Kairi to keep him out of trouble, but...I'll go find them and tell them about the sleeping arrangements. *nods to everyone and leaves*
Izzy: (sdalkdsalas;ld Cloud has been pretending not to stare warily at Sephiroth the entire time. x.x)
Aki: (awww Sephiroth has been doing the same thing actually. He's really conscious of how he acts around Cloud)
Zack: *totally noticed both of them doing it, looks slightly annoyed*
Aki: (He doesn’t want to be threatening XDD)
Izzy: (ahahha)
Zack: Hey. You two. Stop that.
Sora: *climbing on some of the railings*
Sephiroth: *jumps slightly*
Cloud: *glances away quickly*
Sephiroth: *leaves the room again*
Zack: *sighs*
Shalua: ....*sighs* So we're going to have a little issue with grouping, huh...?
Zack: *rubs his forehead* As long as there are enough rooms to keep them separate, it should be all right.
Cloud: *frowning indignantly*
Shalua: So. I'm assuming you're the only one who'd room with him?
Zack: Apparently.
Zack: *puts his arm around Aerith's shoulders and sighs dramatically* Even if it means being separated from my lovely wife, I sacrifice for my friends...
Izzy: (.....aslkdslaskldsalk;as HE CAN'T STAY SERIOUS EVER)
Shalua: *laughs a bit, Aerith grinning madly*
Aerith: *smacks his arm* I'll stay with Tifa, don't worry. *laughs* And if you miss hearing my voice, feel free to call my cellphone~ *jokes*
Zack: I'll always miss you, darling, even when you're right here....*pauses* Wait, that didn't come out right.
Aerith: *giggles*
Cloud: *coughs loudly*
Aki: (XDDD)
Leon: *offers him part of his sandwich*
Cloud: ....thanks, but I'm...not hungry.
Zack: *leans over toward him* Okay, we get it, you want some quality alone time with your boyfriend.
Izzy: (ZACK)
Cloud: Wh-what!?
Leon: .....Thank you! *drags Cloud off*
Zack: *grins* Kid takes things way too seriously.
Aerith: Of course *laughs*
Zack: Well, then, I suppose I should go find S--....Clarence...and inform him of the sleeping arrangements.
Izzy: (............................why do I have a feeling he's not trying >.>)
Aki: (XDDD)
Shalua: All right. If you wish to go stake out your room ahead of time, they're down the hall to the left.
Zack: *nods* Thanks! *leaves*
Izzy: ( what XD)
Sephiroth: ...*brooding in a corner*
Izzy: (once Azul wakes more chance for Shalua time D: so you have to do it soon, that's all)
Aki: (yeah )
Izzy: (I was thinking something like, he can't sleep so he gets up in the middle of the night and considers using the database to try to find more info? But she's awake, too, or something)
Aki: (yeah, but she probably did some snooping)
Izzy: (right)
Aki: (beforehand and figured him out)
Izzy: (do you mind doing that? I mean, I wanna see their convo XD but they're both your characters, so you'd have to do it yourself. You don't have to.)
Aki: (ahahah I'm better at drawing it out, but sure)
Izzy: (<3?)
Aki: (hang on lemme go ask me mum something real fast XD).
Izzy: (okay)
Aki: (Shalua says you can be her for a moment. I can’t figure out how I'm gonna do this XD on my own. I could, but it would take years >>)
Izzy: ( sure?)
Aki: (yeah, because in my head they're all ready married, so it's weird XD)
Izzy: (I dunno if I'll do it right tho)
Aki: (what do you mean?)
Izzy: (if I'll get Shalua's personality right...and like...what did she find out so far)
Aki: (Just think of a geeky nerd with an eye for picking out a bit of gossip.)
Izzy: (ahahahha)
Aki: (that's Shalua in a nut shell XD)
Izzy: (yes. but what did she find out)
Aki: well, she A. knows he looks like Lucrecia B. She did research on a bit of Hojo's experiments+Jenova C. She knows Seph has amnesia, and she knows certain things make him remember C.5: Those things coincide with things Sephiroth did)
Izzy: (C.5 XD)
Aki: (yes XD)
Izzy: (also that the only person that seems to be comfortable around him is Zack...she doesn't know who Zack is, tho, right? Aerith?)
Aki: (well, she could snoop a bit. Aerith would probably look to Zack to see if something's safe to say)
Izzy: (true, but his file is classified XD then again, she probably has mad hacking skillz)
Aki: (But Shalua would promise Zack she wouldn't do anything about it and yeah, helloooo? Lucrecia/computer nerd)
Izzy: (yes, I know XD)
Aki: (XD)
Izzy: (but, how would she act around him then? I'm sorry, I just don't feel like I have enough insight ^^;)
Aki: (She'd probably be a little wary, but she'd like)
Izzy: (same reason I had a hard time with Seifer...)
Aki: (be really...)
Izzy: (be more curious than anything?)
Aki: (yeah, And she'd probably throw out a few of his past missions or w/e to see if it gets a reaction)
Izzy: (okay. I'll do my best)
Aki: (ahahah dont worry, be carefree XD)
Izzy: (you can always fix things later XD)
Aki: (yeah)
Izzy: (I think you play her really well tho)
Aki: (ahahah I love her >D I would marry her)
Izzy: (<3 XD)
Aki: (she's my Tifa)
Izzy: (lol okay so)
Sephiroth: *standing in the corner of the room, in the dark omfg crazy catman!, deciding that he could do a little research of his own, going to the computer room*
Zack: *rolls over* ...........
Aki: (*SNICKER*)
Izzy: (he'll probably follow later XD)
Sephiroth: *opens the door to the computer room, and sneaks in, going over to it, typing in some stuff before finding some files he was looking for*
Shalua: *leaning in the doorway* Someone's up late.
Sephiroth: *jumps slightly, glancing her way* I suppose you could say that. *tilts his head a little bit, before going back to typing in some keywords, scanning over the page*
Shalua: *adjusts her glasses* So the headache earlier isn't a deterrent? You've got quite a constitution. Couldn't they have come up with a better name than "Clarence"?
Izzy: (........I had to XD)
Sephiroth: It was Leon’s choice. He said the first thing that came to mind when I was talking to Rufus on the cell phone. *mouseclickdragcopypaste*
Izzy: (UMMM)
Aki: (hm?)
Izzy: (trying to figure out what to say next XD)
Aki: (ahahaha)
Aki: ("I'm surprised you'd let someone else change your name for you-- oh how the mighty have fallen~" lol Shalua's being silly XD)
Izzy: (XD I think this is a more serious moment)
Aki: (I know XDD that's why I said she's being silly XD)
Izzy: (ahah)
Aki: (see what I mean tho? They're already married in my head-- it's hard for me to RP her like this XD)
Izzy: (I see XD)
Aki: (Shalua: Did you know that Sephiroth has to pace twice in a circle in the kitchen before leaving the house?)
Aki: (*fallsover*)
Izzy: (XDDDDD)
Shalua: *takes a few steps into the room* I'm assuming your apparent amnesia has done nothing to curb your curiosity.
Zack: *pokes his head in* He's not the only one too curious for his own good.
Izzy: (....he followed >.>)
Sephiroth: Apparently that's the cas--*jumps again*
Shalua: ...*pauses* Zack Fair, is it?
Aki: (I can be Shalua now that there's another character if you want? unless you wanna say something to him >D)
Izzy: (yeah)
Zack: *salutes*
Shalua: Former SOLDIER First Class, reported MIA after the Nibelheim Incident. For all official purposes...dead. The rest of your file is heavily encrypted; I haven't been able to break through the security protocols yet.
Sephiroth: *sighs, going through some more stuff, completely uninterested in the exchange so far*
Shalua: Though it seems you were connected to the Jenova Project, just as Cloud Strife was...
Zack: Someone's been doing their research.
Aki: (are you developing a Shalua too? :D)
Shalua: Dr. Crescent's official work was on the Jenova Project. Her work with Chaos was her private, personal research.
Izzy: (...I think I might XD)
Aki: (>D)
Shalua: And it seems like a lot of people involved in her research are supposed to be dead.
Sephiroth: *sees his own file finally, clicking on the icon curiously*
Shalua: Vincent Valentine. Former Turk, reported killed in a lab accident, just as his father Grimoire was. But he's rather alive, isn't he? A little unusual, but alive.
Izzy: (I'm kind of having fun XD)
Sephiroth: These official SOLDIER photos are hideous...*mutters to himself*
Aki: (GOOD)
Sephiroth: Aha, here we go. *found report on Nibelheim incident*
Shalua: She was a remarkable woman. Extremely intelligent, but...probably got carried away by her work. *glances back at Sephiroth* ....
Izzy: (you can take over whenever you want, just say so)
Aki: (Well, whatever you wanna do. I don’t mind XD You make a good Shalua)
Izzy: (really? XD)
Aki: (yeah XD)
Izzy: (I just love spouting info about FF7 XDDD)
Aki: (THANK YOU--I can’t do that for too long XD but Shalua would, so keep on going you make me proud. I AM PROUD TO BE YOUR MOTHER)
Izzy: (XDDD oh right, I wanted to ask, how did Lucrecia die?)
Aki: (uhmmmm)
Izzy: (or did they never say)
Aki: (she didn’t really, She froze herself. She was in such deep regret for taking part in the Jenova project, by offering up Sephiroth, that she sealed herself away)
Izzy: (oh yeah)
Aki: (yeah XD)
Izzy: (okay.)
Aki: (she's not dead but not alive)
Izzy: (right, she tried to kill herself, but she couldn't because she had Jenova the cave place is real XD)
Aki: (she's like how Seph was before Cloud handed over the Black Materia)
Izzy: (but Vincent just hallucinates about it)
Aki: (yeah it is)
Izzy: (lol)
Aki: (yeah)
Sephiroth: *pauses, now sort of listening*
Shalua: Technically, her most successful experiments were the ones she regretted the most.
Sephiroth: *obviously listening now, but trying not to*
Zack: Are you trying to make a point here?
Sephiroth: *pausing on Nibelheim, switching back to Project G, still listening*
Aki: (He's got mad hacking skillz too D: sort of XD)
Izzy: (lol well, he's ridiculously smart)
Aki: (yeah)
Izzy: (that's genetics for you XD)
Aki: (ahahaha well, for Seph, Hojo and Lucrecia genes were good for him-- just not the Jenova stuff XD)
Izzy: (ahaha, I'm just not sure how she'd say this.)
Aki: (what? what we're talking about?)
Izzy: (well, obviously the point she's trying to make is that she's figured out who Sephiroth is)
Aki: (She's probably be kinda blunt about it actually)
Izzy: (yeah,, I dunno. Do you want to take over?)
Aki: (If you want me to XD)
Shalua: *pauses, glancing between the two, crossing her arms, putting a finger to her chin* ...Hm. *Does this as if she's about to lecture* Well, after reading those files myself, you couldn't possibly believe the similarities-- even with amnesia-- would slip by me?
Izzy: (please, and aasdklasdlk;asdlk;as I gtg to work soon)
Aki: (there yo go XD NUUUU)
Izzy: (D: sorry)
Aki: (its okay XD)
Sephiroth: *still looks rather uninterested, but glances at Zack* How permanent is the hair dye? *grumbles*
Aki: (ow my brain)
Zack: I dunno, ask my wife. She bought it.
Izzy: (Cissnei is apparently the youngest person to join the Turks. XD no wonder)
Aki: (XDDD yeah)
Shalua: ...Well, I'm pretty sure Reeve might have guessed who you are, all ready, but he's extremely busy- so perhaps he might be thinking he’s just tired.
Aki: (Sephiroth is like "I'd like to take this crap out of my hair now")
Zack: Good thing, too, because he needs to focus on the problem at hand.
Shalua: Mhmm.
Zack: You don't seem terribly disturbed by your discovery.
Shalua: Oh I'm not.
Izzy: (XDDD)
Aki: (XD)
Zack: ...*raises an eyebrow*
Shalua: If I'd been researching the Jenova project, then you couldn't possibly expect me to be afraid if I ever encountered the product—in fact, I always kind of wanted to see the product.
Aki: (and marry him *SHOT*)
Izzy: (LOL)
Sephiroth: I'm not an object, so would you use my name?
Shalua: All right.
Sephiroth: *goes back to project G ONCE AGAIN*
Izzy: (XD)
Zack: This is...interesting.
Shalua: Well, I guess it's no surprise that you'd get by the system passwords and protection software.
Izzy: (ah, and Shera has brown hair, btw.)
Aki: (ah okay)
Izzy: (She's in my Ultimania.)
Sephiroth: Hm?
Zack: Compliment from computer geek to computer geek. It must be love.
Izzy: (............HE NEEDS TO STOP LIKE NOW)
Shalua: *glances at Zack and raises a brow*
Zack: *just grins*Obnoxious commentary is what I do.
Sephiroth: ....And your love for Aerith and hers for you must be created from your shared love of fruity things.
Izzy: (XDDD it's true.)
Aki: (XD yeah XD)
Zack: Must be why I like you so much.
Shalua: Well, after all, it was Hojo and Lucrecia who donated their brilliant genes to you. *wants to see if he'll have a reaction*
Izzy: (OH SNAP XD)
Sephiroth: ....*freezes, about to say something to Shalua* Oh, well, just to what degree do you like fruity things, huh?
Aki: (he's being indirectly gay back now, lol)
Shalua: However, neither of them would exchange such random banter. *amused, standing in the corner, talking to herself*
Zack: depends on how fruity they are. Generally, the fruitier, the more fun.
Izzy: (....they're on something XD)
Sephiroth: So, you amuse yourself the most then?
Aki: (totally)
Zack: For example...someone who uses rose and vanilla shampoo...
Izzy: (had to. XD)
Sephiroth: ....As I recall, neither roses nor vanilla are fruits. However PEACHES are.
Izzy: (XD)
Izzy: (KAY <3333333333)
Aki: (ILU <3333)
Session Close (߇ aureif): Wed Dec 05 16:07:20 2007

Izzy: DoC arc Y/Y?
Aki: Yx934878937893789589
Izzy: where were we
Izzy: XD Zack and Seph were discussing fruit. More specifically, things that are fruity.
Zack: I didn't say the shampoo was fruity. I was implying that the person who USES it is.
Sephiroth: Gee, thank you. ....I have no come back.
Aki: (XDDD yeah)
Zack: Yes! My first win. Now the score is...*counts on fingers*....
Sephiroth: against very many, how about that?
Zack: Hey, you've had more time to rack up points. It's no fair.
Izzy: (this is a completely arbitrary conversation XD)
Sephiroth: *snickers a little*
Izzy: (XD poor Shalua)
Sephiroth: ....Jenova? *looks back at the computer*
Aki: (She's amused XD She's like..." I never would have expected this.")
Zack: *freezes*
Izzy: (instinct. He knows the darkness is keeping Jenova busy, but)
Aki: (yeah, Sephiroth doesn't really know she exists XD simply because there ARE no effects)
Izzy: (so technically, he'd be screwed if he didn't have so much darkness XD)
Aki: (right XD)
Zack: ....yeah?
Sephiroth: ...1974...mako...Jenova cells implanted...1975 successful product of 9 months of hard work and research...created? What're they talking about?
Aki: (he's got no attachment to it, so he's having a hard time understanding)
Izzy: (I assume Reeve or someone updated the reports to include some side note about the mistake they made thinking Jenova was an Ancient)
Aki: (yeah prolly)
Shalua: Difficult topic to digest at the very beginning, I suppose?
Sephiroth: ....hmm?
Aki: (he seriously wants to wash the dye out of his hair XD he's been bitching about it XD)
Izzy: (XD that would upset people)
Aki: (yeah XD)
Zack: *scratches the back of his head* ShinRa funded all sorts of nasty experiments out of the private eye...Some of them right in it, without anyone knowing. *makes a face*
Sephiroth: I see...
Izzy: (I'm assuming he's reading about the initial discovery of Jenova?)
Sephiroth: ....*still scanning*
Aki: (well, Seph was born in 1975)
Izzy: (yeah)
Aki: (so he's figuring out his birthday actually XD He said he never knew his birthday...not since he was 9, because he had better things to remember)
Izzy: (ah, pfft)
Zack: H-hey, you know this is pretty disturbing stuff, right...?
Sephiroth: ....It's happened to you. I'll stop if you want me to.
Aki: (He knows all this shit happened to Zack, at least. So he's being pretty considerate about it)
Izzy: (Zack's not worried about himself XD)
Izzy: (XD I kind of want to read Loveless in it's entirety. It seems like an interesting story. Speaking of which, Genesis discovered Shakespeare >.>)
Aki: (LOL Sephiroth's been reading him too, actually)
Izzy: (AND NOW HE QUOTES MACBETH AND HAMLET--it's really annoying XDDD)
Aki: (ahahahah)
Izzy: (he should just go into theatre already. I'm so happy that Gackt is such a good actor tho XD)
Zack: Uhh...I'm fine. It's just...
Aki: (XDDD)
Zack: I mean, that's all in the past for me.
Sephiroth: I...see.
Aki: (I'm not sure Seph believes him XD)
Izzy: (ahah)
Aki: (LOL omg, Loveless has some gay relationships in it XD)
Zack: Cloud and I were--you know, a lot of bad things happened. But I'm here, all right.
Izzy: (wrong Loveless? XD wait what)
Aki: (no, like...FF7 Loveless)
Izzy: (Yeah I know, I was making a joke)
Aki: (XD)
Izzy: (but what do you mean?)
Aki: (no, I know--like )
Izzy: (Sephiroth is the Hero, Genesis is the Traveller, Angeal is the Prisoner. That's all I really know)
Aki: (apparently in the lost chapter there's a sex scene...X___X)
Izzy: (HAHAH where did you find that out--lol no wonder it was lost. It was censored)
Izzy: (whereeee link me)
Aki: (like...from 1997. No, I found an article and I wrote notes down XD I copy and pasted it into a document)
Izzy: (could you send it..?)
Aki: (the document I was taking notes on? That's all I have)
Izzy: (yeah)
Aki: (General Warnings: Loveless and Loveless Preludes are for mature readers only. In addition, there is some shonen-ai/yaoi content.)
Izzy: (yay snowinggg hahaha)
Aki: (LOL NO WONDER pff that's why genesis is so gay)
Izzy: (XD I knew it was porn)
Aki: (...I bet it's the Hero and the Traveller)
Izzy: (I was gonna say that. HeroxTraveller OTP)
Aki: (XDDDDD that's why genesis is mad)
Izzy: (XD)
Aki: (it's cuz he's bottom)
Izzy: (because they didn't get the sex scene? XD ahahahahha)
Aki: (XD)
Izzy: (because he was destined by fate to be bottom lollllllll)
Izzy: (poor Genesis XDDDDDD)
Aki: (draw sum genesisxsephiroth to make him happy XD and to make your wife happy too XD)
Izzy: (I'll try XD ANYWAYS go on? plz)
Zack: Uhhh. And ShinRa's been taken down. They got what was coming. It was mostly the fault of the people in power. A lot of innocent...or unknowing people got caught up in it.
Sephiroth: And I took a huge part in this?
Zack: ....*looks uncomfortable* You could say that. *sighs* Look, I'm sorry. This is such a mess.
Sephiroth: ...No need to apologize. *frowns a bit*
Zack: It's just, these past few months...for all the awkwardness and confusion, it was more like old times. I wouldn't say things were good all over, but...The world's like that, i guess. And I guess I felt like I knew you. But I should have learned from experience how fast things can go bad. Ahh-ah...*makes a frustrated noise because he knows he's talking in circles*
Sephiroth: ...You're being ridiculous. You know me. You know me better than I do.
Zack: You're right, I guess. I knew you. Sephiroth. The hero. Not whatever changed you.
Izzy: (Hah. I just watched Last Order again)
Aki: (LOL yay XD)
Zack: *shakes his head and leans over the keyboard, scrolling through files* Scientists really think they can play God, huh. So when they come up against something they can't handle, they're completely blind to it... *pulls up the report on Jenova's discovery*
Sephiroth: ...mother. She...*finally having some of the pieces sink in *
Izzy: (he's upset not just about Sephiroth, but the whole Angeal thing too)
Aki: (not Jenova XDDD and yeah)
Zack: *glances at him*
Sephiroth: *shakes his head a little bit*
Aki: (lol I can write/draw some Sephiroth and Shalua bonding instead of us having to RP it, it's easier)
Izzy: (okay, but I wanna see it XD)
Aki: (*pout*)
Izzy: (whattt)
Aki: (I haven't any yet XD)
Izzy: (I mean, when you do XD)
Aki: (oh okay XD)
Zack: *kind of scowls at the screen*
Sephiroth: ...So, you don't know me anymore, is that what you're saying? *seems like he's having like...394829347 different conversations with himself in his head*
Zack: Ah...I didn't, say that, I...
Aki: (jeez Seph. “If he doesn't know who I am...then who does?" D: )
