Re: I Sense a Disturbance in the Force

FF7 || PG || Sephiroth, Zack || <90 words
  • Last Christmas' postcard fic for chofi .  <3



Knowing Zack forgets to check his mail if it doesn't arrive as a text message, Sephiroth just sends it to Cloud instead.



[info]jukeboxhound : i need a calligraphy/handwriting style for sephiroth.  genesis is easy and i've got angeal and aeris, but sephiroth isn't cooperating.    not sure if i want to do the classy script or more obviously-trained-in-a-lab print.
[info]jukeboxhound : script would be nice, but.
[info]jukeboxhound : thoughts?
[info]chofi : Well, there's a good argument for having doctor-ese, since you'd need to write things down quickly for notes, but you tend to associate print with mechanical and impersonal things. Depends on how old-school you want Sephiroth to be. With OG!Sephiroth, I'd say print. With CC!Sephiroth, he'd probably have some sort of personality to it.
[info]chofi : Maybe something like Getty-Dubay where some letters are linked, and others not?
[info]jukeboxhound : hmm. i'd been looking at this one earlier.
[info]jukeboxhound : WHERE IS MY BRA GDI
[info]jukeboxhound : oh hey nm
[info]chofi : Under your pillow?
[info]jukeboxhound : tossed haphazardly over the foot of the bed, actually.
[info]chofi : Ah.
[info]chofi : I think that's pretty good for CC!Sephiroth. Probably after Genesis has beaten it into his head that one's writing must express ~*~personality~*~. He'd probably just go "Fine. Italic." and then that's that.
[info]jukeboxhound : this is my new headcanon.
[info]jukeboxhound :  i was eyeing Scriptina for genesis.
[info]chofi : And since the style of "Z's" is the same, this implies that there is some sort of unified curriculum.*
[info]chofi : Also, oh, God, those flourishes.
[info]jukeboxhound : [...] AND YES, FLOURISHES.  this is ~personality~ and ~sophistication~
[info]chofi : Zack: Angeal, why is there all this curly shit around this note?
               Angeal: Oh. You got something from Genesis.

[info]jukeboxhound : lol irl
[info]jukeboxhound : XD
[info]jukeboxhound :  zack: and why does it smell like the inside of a macy's - ?
                             angeal: there are some questions that should never be answered.

[info]chofi : HE READ THE TALE OF GENJI/THE PILLOWBOOK OF SEI SHONAGON/INSERT OTHER HEIAN WORK HERE AND IT MOVED HIM. MOVED.
[info]chofi : (Will now have Genesis with various colored inks and papers and scents, as headcanon.)
[info]jukeboxhound : do they correspond to his artistic periods?
[info]jukeboxhound : zack: oi, i thought regulation said everything has to be in black ink.
                             angeal: genesis is in his blue period.

[info]chofi : Well, with Heian note-passing, you have to select an ink color/paper/scent combo that is appropriate to the message and to the season.
[info]jukeboxhound : i was not aware of this tradition.
[info]chofi : I think he'd attempt something like that, and mourn when the ignorant plebes don't understand it at all. Why is his life pain?
[info]jukeboxhound : goddamnit don't make me laugh when i have tea and medication in my mouth.

Someone needs to write fic where someone finds all of Sephiroth's all notes for Zack and they can't find out why every single one of them, including the top secret ones, are addressed to Cloud, and Cloud would just roll his eyes and state that Zack would lose his head if it wasn't attached and he almost lost the Buster Sword a few times and how do you LOSE something that size?

And then people wonder why Zack's work ethic suddenly improved and it turns out it's just Cloud being his quiet efficient self, and Sephiroth's cottoned on to Zack's habit of passing inappropriate notes to Cloud and starts correcting Zack's grammar and spelling on the sexually explicit ones.

Would he sign himself with his rank or just as Sephiroth

I think it depends on context. When using Official Letterhead~ and dealing with complaints I think he'd use rank, but if he's asking Zack where he hid the raspberry jam or telling Cloud the best times to sneak into the chocobo stables without getting caught, just 'Sephiroth.' Unless we're gonna get kinky here. Mmmm.

His not having a canon last name is damn annoying sometimes.

You know what strikes me? The conversation about your bra. XD I think it says something that the first place chofi suggests is under your pillow.

Genesis is such a drama queen. And I love him for it.

Er, what does it say?

Come to think of it I'm rather surprised Genesis would deign to read so-called "literature" that isn't LOVELESS. Perish the thought.

Damned if I know. XD

I think he'd read it, just so he can compare it with LOVELESS, and find it lacking.

I think it says that chofi is used to finding her own bras under her pillow. Then again, I might be wrong.

I'd love to see how Cloud's teammates would react at him receiving mail for a SOLDIER xDDD

Please, remove your cadet from the ceiling MWAHAHAHAH That's zack all right! Also, Cloud's face when he'll realize that General Sephiroth was aware of this? He's going to die of embarrassment ^___^

Oh, and this? zack: oi, i thought regulation said everything has to be in black ink.
angeal: genesis is in his blue period.

was too precious for words! I just about spilled my chocolate everywhere while reading it ;p The whole discussion in fact was hilarious ^^

I think their reaction would be somewhere along the lines of, "We thought you were fucking a SOLDIER to stay in ShinRa but you're just his secretary, aren't you?" To go with some fandom cliches.

Only because chofi is made of win and some knowledge about everything.

Re-reading this post I got all giggly and smiling over this Probably after Genesis has beaten it into his head that one's writing must express ~*~personality~*~. He'd probably just go "Fine. Italic." and then that's that.

I can so imagine Sephiroth staring flatty at Genesis while he waxes poesy about writing and script.
Then Genesis finally get to the point and there's a long blank moment where everybody stares expectantly at the General and he goes "Fine. Italic" before bending back over his report and signing a bit exageratly in italic.
Angeal would be holding back a smirk/smile with difficulties and Genesis would be still trying to decide if he should be offended by this lack of creativeness despite all the examples he had given or extatic that Sephiroth was actually showing some individualism.

I think their reaction would be somewhere along the lines of, "We thought you were fucking a SOLDIER to stay in ShinRa but you're just his secretary, aren't you?" To go with some fandom cliches.
And then soldiers and sergeants and pretty much everycowardbody would give their memo/reports/whining to Cloud to be passed to the General...

...I kinda want quiet!stubborn!practical!Cloud to end up the Official Messenger Boy because everyone else is too afraid to deal with Sephiroth and because he's one of the few that can keep Zack's affairs in order.

And people would ask if he could 'pass that to the General' and he would say 'yes, of course' and go, puzzled as to why people couldn't seem to go see the General themselves.

quiet!stubborn!practical!Cloud with a dash of clueless is ♥

(of course, Zack is hidden behind a corner, laughing all he can, while spying on Cloud and the other soldiers)
