Yeah, I honestly wish that the FF7 movie was about Sephiroth being "cured" by finding out the truth, rather than about Cloud being cured from something he didn't even have in the game... or at least have them both be cured of their Jenova cells, perhaps at the same time.
Your fanfic sounds interesting. I remember when I beat FF7 for the second time, I thought it was strange that there was no alternate ending. Because the second time I beat it I had a more thorough playthrough. So I, and therefore Cloud and the team, learned the truth about who Sepheroth's mother was and why he turned out the way he did. Yet surprisingly, they never give you the option to try and talk to Sephiroth at the end about the truth, which almost seems cold hearted for the "heroes" to not do.
He has one of the most tragic stories I've ever seen. But for the want of his true mother's name, things could've been so different. He was lied to his entire life, and then his mind was taken over my an eldritch abomination that he thought was his mother. I don't understand how people still see him as the true "villain" of that story when there are so many factors involved. I'm over 120k words into this fanfic and hoping to be finished before summer's end, then to the edting
I love it, I may not have played the game that Lucrecia was in but I've watched cut scenes on youtube. It is a really sad story I think; I would have loved if they met in real life. I can still imagine Sepiroth walking into the cavern she's in and everything is just thrown out in the open about their relations to one another.
Simply a beautiful picture, the emotions are plain and evident. To me it seems that Lucrecia has some regrets and Sepiroth is just...stunned in his own kind of way.
Again wonderfully done and just wonderful picture. I want to find more like these! Keep u the amazing draws!
Unlike most people (which means everyone and their mother), I feel nothing but sympathy for Lucrecia and all she had to go through. She's one of only a few characters who's the most human in how she deals with terrible times. I think the reason people hate her is because she's human weakness personified. People hate knowing they're weak. I like her because she's weak. Sorry, folks, but not everyone is strong like what you look for in a character. Losing her mentor, feeling responsible for his death, rejecting Vincent, seeing what Sephiroth would become...how can anyone be strong enough to overcome that much? She and Cloud have every right be weak and sad. If you were in their shoes, what would you have differently.
Anyway, gorgeous piece with Sephiroth and Lucrecia. It's easy to see where he gets his good looks. Certainly didn't get them from the epitome of all that is ugly and evil.
His real Mother. good god. Finally and art piece with both him and her. This is a touching piece. Too bad he's in the Lifestream and she's still frozen in a crystal. In deep sleep or whatever. But this is awesome.
