Rating: NC17 overall
Length: more than 25,000 words and counting … this chapter = 2564
Pairings: Cloud/Elena, implied past Cloud/Tifa, one-sided Elena/Tseng, past Zack/Cloud, implied Tseng/Rufus (yes, confusing, I know … most of these pairings don’t show up until later, and most are only in passing)
Warnings: explicit heterosexual acts including oral, bondage, whatever other kinky things come into my head; hints of homosexual activity
Summary: Is it really such a bad thing to get involved with someone who was once your enemy? And what if you just can’t let go of your past?
Author’s note: This is one of my favorite chapters. Cloud is so, so broken.
