It came from the Nexus, high on chocolate and breaking several laws of physics and biology just through its existence. And it had only one goal in mind as it ran squealing through the streets to where it sensed Zax was hanging out.


"Zaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaax~! Where are you! I have candy!" Chibi-Cloud squealed as he toddled and skidded towards the sense he had of Zax's location, heedless of things like common sense, other people, or the mortification he would undoubtedly feel when the Nexus, LOL wore off. There were neat things to inform his friend of!

Merodi has wandered far, far, far way from Shinra. She's now enjoying the splendors of Wall Market, gaping at everything with child-like wonder and not really comprehending what she's seeing, with Lord Christian discreetly following her. He certainly deters any random monster battles and advances, once he makes his presence known. Merodi seems unaware of him, however, although she drops an occasional mushroom on the ground.

Juuuust a quick heads-up on two things:

1. the_brat_sister has been added to the mod council, since she was basically a de facto mod anyway. XD

2. There is now an OOC comm - alterplanet_ooc. (Yes, it's barebones and ugly right now. We'll work on it. XD) I strongly recommend that everyone go join, and keep an eye on it. Plots can be proposed and worked out there, and stuff. Don't be shy about posting. :3

That's all. I now return you to your regularly scheduled AP.

And thus, the respite in Nibelheim is over.

The trip was as tiresome as expected. Cramped quarters, Merodi inexplicably chewing on anyone's hair or clothes that she could get to, the tonberry giving everyone shifty looks, and a general sense of impending doom combined to that overall effect.

And half the expanded party is made up of people that don't really have a place to go in Midgar.

So it is that now Zax finds himself trudging towards his room in the SOLDIER dorms, with five people and two monsters trailing behind him, desperately hoping to get back and at least get a chance to settle before his and Cloud's inevitable Sephiroth-shaped doom.

The return trip to Midgar is looking to be a lot less enjoyable than the trip out to Nibelheim was. The truck, while it was roomy enough for just Cloud, User, and Zax, is rather more fully occupied this time.

Tea with the Strifes had been a somewhat bizarre affair, including, as it had, Vincent Valentine. Still, it had gone off as pleasantly as could be expected under the circumstances, with Mrs. Strife taking the ragged ex-Turk's presence in stride and doing her mother's best to embarrass Cloud as much as possible, and Zax wholeheartedly assisting her.

What came after the tea could be defined as mild karmic retribution against Zax on Cloud's behalf. Vincent, having no intention of going back to sleep, had quietly but very thoroughly interrogated Zax about Shin-Ra, Hojo, Sephiroth, Jenova, and all things related. Zax, resigned to the consequences of waking the ex-Turk up, provided the best answers he could. By the end of the night, there was no question about it. Vincent was coming back with them to Midgar for the upcoming battle.

Zax dares to hope this might offset some of Sephiroth's irritation with him.

The next morning, however, brought more personal worries than irate Generals, as Vash had arrived in Nibelheim with Merodi in tow. The girl was in a severe state of mental deterioration, barely able to remember anything, only barely holding on to her sense of self. Once surrounded by friends, she had seemed to stabilize, but remained in a pretty sorry state.

And, as ill luck would have it, the day after was when they were due to return. There had been no choice but to pile everybody that could fit into the truck. Even with one person riding Merodi's rental chocobo alongside the vehicle, that still leaves five people, a Malboro, and a Tonberry packed inside. The presence of the Tonberry puts nobody at ease, even as it seems perfectly content to sit near Merodi and eat mushrooms for the whole trip.

It's looking to be a long, trying ride back to Midgar.

((Permission was obtained in advance from involved muns to describe their pups' actions in this way. Just for the record. ♥))

Kadaj's bike roared as he rode through the streets of Midgar. The wind rushing past his ears, rain pelting his body. He skidded to a stop outside a long adandoned church, breaking in the door with a good kick, he stepped in, looking around the musty pews. Un-clipping his Souba, he laid it against a wall and walked through the building, running his fingers along the altar, the font. Finally, he reached the stairs. Jumping up them, he reached the top of the belltower in minutes, and crouched on it's ledge. Eyes roving over the city, lovingly.

"I have returned."

((Mun has returned. After much RL stuffs. Poke Kadaj?))

Cloud's heels clicked hollowly on the ancient shell paving running through Knowlespole, echoes of it reverberating through the twisted shapes of the abandoned dwellings standing out like glowing skeletons against the darkened sky. The old magic on the buildings and the fainter blue glow from Ultima Weapon, familiar and heavy on his back, were the only sources of light in the otherwise fog-like darkness as Cloud paced slowly towards the lake near the center of town and the tall, curling shell that almost rose above the spidery tops of the petrified trees. He could hear the gentle lapping of the water against the shore of the lake and the faint creaking of the branches in the breeze that stirred the treetops as his steps took him around the perimeter of the lake and into the shell house.

The interior was lit by a crystal, concealing the entrance to Cloud's true destination-- the city of glass, where once upon a time in the future the last of the Cetra would sacrifice herself.. You haven't got time to distract yourself with it. Not your fault, and you're just lucky she's not here to eavesdrop and hit you for being a moron.

Cloud reached out to run his fingers along the top of the gently glowing material, silently asking for entrance within the former heart of the Cetra capital. It was a place of power, a place where one could commune most closely with the Planet.. and a place where, gods willing, the Crisis could be tracked to her lair and destroyed.

"C'mon, ghosts.. I've reached the end of my mortal rope on this one," Cloud murmured to the crystal. "I could use some help."

Loz waits at the appointed place, a path by a church in the slums, with SIN at his side; he'd felt Yazoo moving closer some time ago, and had come here to wait for him. SIN, in human form, leant against a handy bit of brick wall and scanned the surroundings somewhat curiously while Loz waited off to one side of the church doors. A motorcycle rumbled in the distance, and Loz looked up to see who was coming...

Several months after her accident at Nibelheim, Merodi is once again sitting aside a chocobo on the edges of the small town. Vash is sitting aside on his own chocobo, not too far from Merodi, covered in peck marks. Both chocobos fidget about, having been recently caught and still not used to humans.

Merodi suddenly winces as an all-too familiar pain goes through her head. Her chocobo perks up, sensing her lapse of concentration, and uses this as a cue to forge on ahead.
