The One Who Wakes, part 2, part 3, part 4

Final Fantasy VII gen, Cloud-centric. Written by [livejournal.com profile] delladella, illustrated by kimouski (no longer in LJ).

Back when I did a round of FF7-recs for [livejournal.com profile] crack_van my biggest regret was that I couldn't rec this story because it was a WIP, but now that WIPness is no longer the case I'm happy to rec it here. The One Who Wakes finds Cloud who is dealing with the aftermath of Zack's death and follows him on his journey to Midgar, showing how Cloud comes to be the man we saw in the beginning of the game. Not only does the story fill up one of the most mysterious holes in canon in a way that makes nothing but sense, it's also an incredible character portrait, its dark themes supported by the atmospheric art. If you want to see Cloud who is done justice (along with a certain other character), this is your story.
