gambler Tseng curls a lock of Aerith's hair around a gloved finger. "Tell me, Aerith," he says, and she cannot read his tone enough to discern whether he's leading her on. "If I tell you what you want to hear… if I risk everything to give you what you want… what's in it for me?" — Aerith makes a deal. It's not the one you'd expect. (AU in which Aerith never met Zack.)

Woman Enough Ginchiyo has never thought of fourteen-year-old Muneshige as her brother. She's not about to accept him as her husband, either, especially not at the tender age of twelve. Unfortunately, what Ginchiyo wants is irrelevant compared to the good of her clan, but that doesn't mean she won't fight as hard as she can. No suggestive themes.
