Summary: Cloud has suffered and asked for forgiveness, but Aeris knows she alone cannot give him it. He must find that forgiveness and peace where it began, back at SOLDIER.
Why you should read this:
Time traveling Cloud is a popular trope in the fandom, but for me, this is the fic that defines the trope. Cloud travels back to his SOLDIER training days and has to deal with the problems of the future with the nosy, but very in-character, Zach and Sephiroth suspicious of his new skills. The fic gives insight into the points of view of multiple minor characters and into the SOLDIER training program, especially its main test. Its portrayal of Sephiroth is definitely one of my favorites in fic.
Despite still being a WIP, it’s definitely worth a read. Or two.
