FF7 - Out of NecessityWar. It was never something Tifa had placed much thought on when she was younger, preferring rather to indulge in her childish fantasies of a knight in shining armour coming to rescue her whenever she was in trouble. He would ride in on his metallic steed, harvest yellow hair swaying in the wind and sea blue eyes sparkling in the sun. Yes, after the promise they had made that night in Nibelheim, his last night, it was always Cloud's face she saw in her dreams. His rose tinted cheeks and shy smile that gave her something to look forward to when the days became darker and more unpredictable. Perhaps it was naive of her to believe that the blond would actually keep his word when he was so far away in a big city like Midgar while she was still trapped in their small village. But the hope that maybe, just maybe, he might come had been enough to sustain her half realized daydreams.
Then the two SOLDIERs came with the prospect of help from ShinRa. And soon came the fire. And then her father..
Naruto - A Thousand Names, Pt2A faint whisper of air was all that could be heard as she tossed a well aimed shuriken from her seat at the counter. Breezing by a forest of hardened wood and tempered steel to embed itself into the far wall with a dull thunk, it landed amid the aerial weapons that were displayed along the wall, and where a set of young fingers were poised over the hilt of a sharp dagger. Almost instantly, a chorus of gasps floated to the kunoichi's ears, doing well to drown out the initial yelp of shock and rustling of clothing as all attention shifted to her. Mei, however, remained unfazed and nonchalant while she continued to shuffle through the week's inventory report, retaining the same calm demeanor she normally reserved for shinobi business.
"Just because I'm not looking doesn't mean I can't see," came her curt response to their wide-eyed stares, fingers moving swiftly to scribble down small notations along the margins, "Now, unless you intend to actually buy something here, I suggest you guys l
Naruto - Lost Inhibitions, Pt1Cool and calloused fingers fidgeted with the sleeve of her crimson gown, vibrant and soft as it swayed with the gentle tugs and nervous twitches. Through the fabric of the thin veil covering her head, she caught a shadow of movement from the young man sitting beside her, unable to see much else besides faint outlines of the contents within the small room they occupied. As an agent of the Leaf Village and one of Konoha's talented shinobi, not being able to see beyond the thin, red barrier of the cloth only posed as a danger. Yes, she trusted her partner, but a lifetime of training in the deadly arts of the shinobi could neither be erased nor forgotten for one night, no matter the circumstances. And so, it was for that reason that the young woman decided to keep her gaze focused on her lap and the hands that were currently keeping themselves busy through the stillness. At least then the feeling of helplessness and vulnerability would not be so ominous and imposing. With a steady beat, th
Naruto - A Thousand Names, Pt1- No way! No one could hit all those without missing! -
- Cheater! -
- Just what kind of kunais are those anyways? They look funny. -
- Girls can't be shinobi. They aren't strong enough. -
- Yeah! You don't even have a family name! -
- You're just a nobody. -
- I...I am not! -
- Nobody! -
- Weirdo! -
- Freak! -
Tentatively, she held out the palms of her hands to catch the light of the slowly fading sun on the horizon, utilizing the long shadows of dusk to scrutinize every line, every dirt-covered crease, every scar she had already received in her young life. She took pride in them no matter what her peers believed or said, or how much they would tease her for it. When they would break and crack from the strain, she loved them all the more. After all, each had been made one by one from her long hours of training and stood as a mark of the girl's slow achievements, working diligently with the shinobi tools until they became so much a part of
FF7 - No More TearsHair weighed down from the rain that continued to fall, she remained standing there in perfect silence while staring at the heavy wooden doors that stood before her. It had started with one. One step out the front door of her bar, one drop of rain from the clouded sky that loomed over all in the city of Edge, nothing she thought to concern herself with as there were other matters that needed more attention. But then came another. And another. Then another still, one for every step she took and more until the entire city of Midgar was slowly bathed in a soft curtain of rain.
Thinking back on it, the young woman supposed she should have turned back then and there, saving her crusade for another day more fitting. But for Tifa, any day she managed to bring Cloud a little bit closer towards the light he had once held in the past and away from the darkness that clung to him now was a fitting day. And she would see to it herself. Because Tifa needed that visual assurance that Cloud had manage
KH2 - Just Another NightElbow resting lightly on the counter top, the gentle curve of her chin resting comfortably within the young woman's palm, she watched with mild interest as the two men engaged in a pointless battle of... Well, to be perfectly honest, Tifa was not exactly sure what they were doing. All she knew was that up until five minutes ago when this entire affair had began, her bar had been filled with happy and cheerful customers quietly enjoying their evening with stiff drinks and good company. However, said good company came to an abrupt end the moment he walked into the bar.
She had just been talking, like she would with any customer who happened to drop by her bar for a drink to ease the day's stress. Not many people were denied entrance as Tifa was the kind of person willing to give any and all a chance to stay and enjoy themselves just as long as they caused little to no trouble while there. However, there was just something about the man that irked Cloud so righteously that every little co
