23Noticing » Harry wasn't the first to ask that question, but the result had been the same every time. If she said yes, they'd laugh and ask if she really thought they were asking her before ridiculing her for being so foolish. Phrases like 'how did you make it into Ravenclaw' tended to be thrown in by that point. If she said no, they'd still laugh and the phrase would instead be something alon

18Trying Something New » This hope was dashed quickly when Hermione discovered her beloved books would grant her no special insight or help in this new endeavor. Yes, she sought information, but apparently the Hogwarts library and its wealth of tomes, both ancient and slightly more modern, lacked exactly this type.

7 Respite At least Harry wasn't entirely uncomfortable. While most of his body could feel the hard ground, his head apparently found much better accommodations upon something oddly smooth and soft. Whatever that was, he had no clue.

3 Midnight Affection A simple plan, with equally simple tools, but one they'd availed themselves of more times than could be counted. Hermione wasn't about to deny these meetings were one of the only things keeping her sanity intact. Harry and Luna didn't have to speak for her to know they felt the same.

5 Jam "Oh, hey, Panam." V jumped slightly, like a kid caught doing something he wasn't supposed to. It wasn't often V became flustered, but Panam had to admit, it was a cute look on him. "Find any treasure?"

3 Fire and Ice Panam screamed until her lungs were empty, then took in more air and let loose a litany of swears that, from the stories V had told her about the man, would have left Johnny Silverhand himself staring at her slack-jawed.

6 Protective When the Raffen ambush hit, targeting their client instead of them ironically enough, the four had almost made their quiet escape. They were seconds from their ride when one of the Raffen scumbags spotted them. V dropped the man with a well-placed shot instantly, but he didn't see the second one off to the side, at least not in time.

5 Dancin' in the Rain In a totally Aerith-like move, the flower girl was out in the rain, giggling and dancing like she was having the time of her life. Just like Cloud, Tifa found herself utterly enthralled by the sight.

6Descend » Another scream ripped its way out of Cloud. The harder he tried to remember, the more intense the pain grew. The sensation changed from a stabbing pain, to someone taking a sledgehammer and mashing his skull into paste. But Cloud pushed on, he needed to remember, and if it was going to hurt, then so be it.

2 Heartbeat This was all it took, not a touch or anything, but rather a single glance at her lovers, and Aerith's heart would go crazy. At the rate she was going, she would start having cracked ribs one of these days. How Cloud and Tifa slept through the sound was anyone's guess.

13Break » Right then, Tifa had a strange sensation pass through her body. She'd never felt it before, but it was almost as if she felt something deep within her mind snap and… break.

3Mother Aerith had been like any other child growing up. She sometimes misbehaved and had to be reprimanded and punished. For this, all parents had that voice they used when they had to discipline their child. But Aerith hadn't heard it in a very long time, she was twenty-two after all, but now she was about to become reacquainted with it.

7 Silencing the Tempest "Except us!" Tifa shook him a little rougher this time, her voice dropping deeper into a near snarl herself. "Right now, the only people in the entire world that can save Aerith is the three of us. And if something happens to us, Aerith has no chance left. None! And everything going on in that damn brain of yours is going to come true. All of it! And it's going to be your fault."

6 Fixing a Wrong Ooh, Jessie let Barret have it, alright. She owed Cloud her life and wasn't about to take someone insulting the man lying down. Just because Cloud wasn't allowed within their secret hideout, something else that rubbed Jessie the wrong way, doesn't mean he shouldn't have someone sticking up for him.

7 Just a Little More Time It hurt, it was an actual physical ache that they had to part ways now. Aerith would have given almost anything to prolong this just a little longer. But she'd taken them on the slow path, made them stop for numerous unnecessary breaks, and done anything in her power to buy more time.

4 A Fresh Start "It's umm…" Aerith struggled to form the proper words. Too weak and the point wouldn't get across, too strong would be needlessly cruel. "A dump?" Cloud, blunt as a wrecking ball, finished. "I wouldn't say that." Aerith laughed nervously. "Not… quite."

13Touchy Feely » "This calls for an experiment." Jessie rubbed her hands together menacingly. "Oh, crap." Biggs' eyes went wide as he turned to Wedge. "Forget the bomb shelter, we need to leave Midgar, right now. Crap's about to hit the fan." "What about the women and children?" "No time!" "Can it, guys." Jessie grinned standing to her feet. "This is for science."

4 Moving On Regardless of how Tifa felt, Aerith had tears in her eyes when she begged her to come with them. As if the thought of doing this with just her and Cloud was simply too much to bear. Cloud hadn't said a peep, but his eyes, always so much more expressive than the rest of the man, conveyed his own desperation.

8 Sick Day Aerith jumped from the bed to her feet with a dramatic flourish but was instantly struck with a fresh wave of dizziness. Luckily, she caught herself on the bedpost before she could wobble too much. Hopefully Cloud and Tifa missed that unpleasant little detail…

5 What Do We Say to the God of Fate Cloud was no stranger to blood or injuries, it came with the territory of a mercenary, not to mention the life he lived. He was accustomed to things like this. Whether it was his own flesh, or his enemies. Cloud was unfazed by the sight. But not on Aerith.
