Imperfect Tense
Chapter 11
Word Count: 2,500

FF7/8 || R - sexuality, battle violence, language || Squall/Seifer, Sephiroth/Cloud || crossover
Jenova's legacy, living on through the Sorceresses, is forcing Squall to deal with an unstable Seifer, Cloud Strife, and yet another potential end of the world.  Maybe paperwork really wasn't so bad.




11.
 
There was a lull in the battle as the monsters finally backed off enough to allow the humans a chance to lick their wounds.  Raijin was clasping a hand to the bloodied gash on his other arm as Seifer scowled and kicked at a monster carcass.  Fujin and Vincent were looking over their weapons, the former cleaning the gore from her chakram and the latter cleaning his gun barrel, and when he’d sufficiently drawn out the silence Vincent stowed Death Penalty in the subspace under his cloak and looked out over the battlefield.
 
“This town’s gonna be a genocide if those fucking monsters – “ Seifer kicked the corpse again viciously, “ – don’t give up and run away.”
 
“DO NOW?”
 
“Why don’t we ask the vampire?”  The pounding in Seifer’s head was slowly getting worse, exacerbated by so much exertion and the inability to use magic without feeling like his soul was being torn in half (or like an addict, the magic an intoxicating high).
 
“The monsters won’t give up until they’re all dead,” said Vincent, like the cheerful guy he was.  “The only instinct they have now is to kill.  Only someone with Jenova in his or her body can control them.”
 
Seifer eyed him.  “What if you’re a horror sideshow?”
 
Fujin kicked him in the shin.  Bitch.
 
“Uh, shouldn’t we have, like, a plan or something, yanno?” Raijin asked tentatively, automatically looking to Seifer, who crossed his arms, leaned against a bent iron fence, and raised a brow at Vincent to cover up the fact that the fence was only thing holding him upright at the moment.  He blinked and he saw Valentine again, short hair and suit, lying on a laboratory floor with a bullet in his heart –
 
He was distantly thankful for his leather gloves when he nearly fell flat on his face and had to grab the fence to catch himself.  A heavy hand clamped onto his shoulder and Raijin asked worriedly, “Seifer, you okay?”
 
“’M fine,” he muttered distractedly, absently pressing the fingers of his other hand against his forehead.
 
“Excuse me, sirs and ma’am,” came a stranger’s shaky voice, “th-the mayor’s declared this city under siege.  We’ve sent messages to the Gardens for help, but until the SeeDs get here…what should we do?”
 
The speaker was a young fisherman carrying a bloodied spear, its wooden shaft well-worn and aged. Behind him were others with varying types of weapons, but only a few wore the uniforms of soldiers.  Seifer huffed a laugh.  Shrugging off Raijin’s hand, he glanced at his posse and found them all staring at him, and it took an embarrassingly long moment for him to realize that they were waiting for the guy who’d tried ambushing a president during a live broadcast surrounded by soldiers to come up with a damn plan.  Once upon a time this dashing knight would indeed have taken up his sword and led his men to battle – except he’d tried that, hadn’t he?  And he hadn’t been very successful, unless one considered ‘mass mayhem, near genocide, and chronic insanity’ as something to be listed on a person’s job history.  Hell, he was more likely to get these men and women killed, he was still too much of that needy little boy with big dreams and no one that loved him.
 
But then Seifer happened to glance at Fujin and Raijin and the two were watching him patiently, as though he’d never abandoned or used them, and he thought of Leonhart, who had never believed in good or evil, only perspectives.
 
“Every person who knows a thing or two about killing shit, grab something pointy and prepare to haul ass,” he said loudly.  “If you can’t, get all medical and food supplies plus all the kids to the safest area in this place.  We’ll also need a squad out here to start collecting the dead – Hyne knows how long these fuckers’ll keep coming, and if we don’t get a start on burning this shit then we may as well kill ourselves.”  Hey, he never claimed to be any sort of keynote speaker.  “Raijin, help these bastards with the supplies, you know the most about that kind of shit.  Fu, make sure they burn those bodies at the edge of town, we don’t need that ash getting everywhere.”
 
The two grinned and shot him smart salutes before setting off into the crowd and bullying the people into teams.  Pretending he wasn’t getting the start of warm fuzzies on the inside, Seifer turned to Vincent with a smirk and gestured at the variety of kitchen and fishing tools.
 
“And you and me, my dear vampire, are going to see just how bad this whole thing really is.”
 

 
One of the Dollet citizens was a young, unmarried man named Josephine Wiseley (but call him Joe, please, he hated his name, which had come from his long-dead grandmother and his mother’s burning wish to have a little girl) and the last few days of his life had been nothing less than nightmarish.  Last surviving family slaughtered by monsters, clothes stained with a variety of bodily fluids, and his watercolor paintings long ripped to shreds, he stood in a sort of numbed shock with a crowd that had settled in Dollet’s main square near the fountain where Reno usually ran about.  Joe distantly prayed that the poor dog had gotten away in time.
 
“Any of you poor bastards got any experience?” asked the big blond guy in the trenchcoat, gunblade resting on a shoulder.  He was tall and lean and scarred and looked suspiciously like a certain Sorceress’ Knight.
 
There was a susurrus of mixed ‘yes’ and ‘no’ from the crowd.  Joe had always considered himself a lover, not a fighter, that the pen was mightier than the sword and all that jazz, but he was starting to regret it even more than his unfortunate name.
 
“Well, fuck,” said the blond with cheerful cynicism.  “All right then, folks, here’s what we’re gonna do.  I’m Seifer Almasy – yeah, that guy, but I’m also the guy that’s going to give you your best chance of survival, so you can suck it up and challenge me to a duel after all this is over.  Me and Valentine here are going to try our best to make sure that at least you know which end of your weapon should be pointed at the monsters.”
 
“Do any of you not have a reason to fight?” said Valentine in this dark, ominous kind of voice that made Joe shudder a little.  No one said anything, but hands tightened with grim determination around makeshift weapons, and that seemed to be enough.  When Almasy started barking out orders like a boss and Vincent moved through the crowd with calm efficiency, Joe began to hope that maybe it wasn’t all as hopeless as it seemed.
 

 
“It’s fucking hopeless.”
 
Thursday morning.  Vincent looked over at Seifer, who was watching the first grey beginnings of dawn spread over the town as they sat on the edge of a roof.   The night had passed without incident, except maybe when someone dropped a spear on his foot, and Seifer and Vincent had finally sent the civilians to go rest while they could.  Having spent a good portion of the previous evening and that night putting the civilians through their paces with the help of more experienced soldiers, Vincent had silently come to the same conclusion.
 
But at least the self-inflicted, accidental damage had been kept to a minimum, even with Seifer’s impatience and Vincent’s mild tendency towards perfectionism.  The majority of the monster carcasses had been dragged just outside the town’s limits and set on fire both for sanitation and a deterrent to whatever was still alive and tentacled, although judging from the looks Fujin was sending Seifer, Vincent had a feeling he was going to find something squishy and possibly toxic in his boots at some point.  Rough blockades of sandbags, concrete, and miscellaneous materials had been set up across as many roads and alleyways as they could manage.
 
(Vincent had caught himself unconsciously picking out those people more dangerous than the others, ones that had a Turk’s understated ruthlessness or a SOLDIER’s innovative strength.  A possible strategy had occurred to him and, in the back of his mind, CHAOS smiled toothily.)
 
“There was something said about gardens and seeds,” said Vincent quietly.  “What are they to these people?”
 
“Seriously?” said Seifer incredulously.  “What crypt have you been living in?”
 
Vincent didn’t say anything.  He certainly didn’t feel a pang of nostalgia or homesickness or something for sleepless nights on the Highwind playing cards and being passive-aggressive about Cid’s abominable taste in brandy.
 
“You know what Sorceresses are, right?”
 
“No.”  If there was a note of sardonic amusement in his voice at Seifer’s bewilderment, it was entirely justified.
 
“Women with way too much power.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve known women with bigger balls than a lot of guys, but the Sorceresses.”  He paused.  “No one should have that much power.  Gardens are the places where poor assholes are trained to be SeeDs to fight back.”
 
“Your hallucinations are connected to these Sorceresses.”  It wasn’t really a question, and Seifer gave him a twisted smirk and said, “Yeah, I was a Knight, right-hand man to the big bad.  Take my advice, Valentine – a chick offers to take you beyond the point of no return, she ain’t talking about a fucking blowjob.”
 
This story wasn’t sounding to start sound familiar, was it?  At least it explained why Seifer was receiving messages from people who were nominally dead, why the rhythms of the Planet had woken Vincent in the first place.
 
“Almasy, Valentine!” a voice cried from the street below, and Seifer leaned over the edge of the roof all suave and as though he were totally in control.  It was a youth named Joe, who threw a sloppy salute and yelled, “Someone saw some movement outside the city!”
 
“Time to play,” Seifer shouted back, leaping off the roof.  His boots thudded solidly on the cobblestone.
 
“But what about the SeeDs?” the boy demanded frantically.  “They haven’t arrived yet – “
 
“Except a monster took out the receiver, dumbass, so we don’t know if they even got the message.  If they did, it’s gonna take time to be approved, if it’s approved, and by the time the SeeDs get off their asses you’ll already be something’s chew toy.  So move your ass.”
 
The kid scuttled off as Vincent landed lightly next to Seifer.
 
“Moron,” Seifer muttered, hefting Hyperion.  CHAOS stirred again, restless.
 

 
One of the questions that were probably plaguing people’s minds was, Where the hell were all these monsters coming from?
 
Good question, too.  They came in droves of wriggling limbs and dripping fangs and contorted bodies like something out of those B-grade horror movies Yuffie had loved so much, but it was the sheer scale of them that was the most mind-boggling.  If the first two days of Dollet being under siege (again) was bad, the third was practically a slaughter.
 
“Where are they coming from?” Seifer demanded, yelling over the roar of weird howls and screams as his bullets splattered brain matter in a rather artistic manner over the pavement.
 
“JENOVA,” Fujin yelled back, her chakram spinning out long spirals of blood.  Vincent’s claw was beginning to stiffen with all the gore choking up the jointed plates and Death Penalty’s bullets – nicked from an unsuspecting outdoorsman on the coast outside the city – weren’t exactly in endless supply.  He retreated to the top of a building to snipe at what he could, as quickly and efficiently as he could, to save who he could.
 
(“Every life is precious,” Lucrecia said quietly as she fiddled with some flasks, her back to Vincent so she didn’t have to see his expression of horror and disbelief.
 
(“They why – how could you – “)
 
(“Please understand, Vincent, the Ancients’ power could be what saves the Planet.  Sometimes the needs of the many outweigh the needs of a few.”)
 
Vincent very much disliked that saying, if ‘dislike’ in this instance were a synonym for the sensation of drowning while a mob held him under.  (“What you’re doing to an unborn child- “)  But down the sight of Death Penalty’s barrel there were people and monsters dying, makeshift weapons and hurriedly-built barricades not quite enough to stem the tide, and as much as he preferred the role of the Uncaring Stoic Gunman even Vincent had a line drawn in the sand.  He stripped out of clothes that weren’t his and folded them neatly, setting them aside near a ventilation pipe with Death Penalty lying neatly on top.  He felt wrung out, used, and very, very old as he closed his eyes, turned inward to CHAOS, and said yes.
 
Skin and muscle shredded and great dark wings exploded from his back, oily blackness spreading over his body like poison.    Fingernails turned to talons that scraped and cracked the roof tiles as Vincent curled over himself in shivering pain.
 

 
“We’ll be there in a few minutes,” Zell called back from the cockpit, and continued in a suddenly panicked voice, “Holy shit, Squall, Quisty, look!”
 
Squall, Quistis, and Cloud immediately pressed their noses against the windows, squinting against the reflection of sunlight glittering over the ocean.  It took a long moment to realize what they seeing.
 
“Holy shit,” Quistis echoed faintly.  Squall’s hand tightened around Lion Heart’s hilt.  “We’d know if there was another Lunatic Pandora incident, right?”
 
“Here we go again,” Cloud sighed.
 
“Welcome to Dollet,” Zell muttered dryly.
 
Quistis pointed at a creature larger than the others, black with scarlet wings and enormous horns and a roar that shook the Ragnarok even as high in the air as they were.  It wreaked havoc among the monsters like a kid kicking over all his toy dinosaurs, only bloodier and with more death.
 
“Maybe someone switched Dollet and Hell when we weren’t looking.”  Zell looked a little green.
 
Squall was instead watching Cloud, the way his unnaturally vivid eyes narrowed, then widened.
 
“What is it?”
 
“CHAOS,” said Cloud with a slightly unhinged smile that made Squall wonder, not for the first time, if the guy was actually playing with a full Triple Triad deck.  As long as Cloud could swing that sword in the direction of their enemies, however, then Squall wasn’t going to give a shit, especially not when Rinoa (or Seifer) might be trapped below.  A commander had to have priorities.

“Every person who knows a thing or two about killing shit, grab something pointy and prepare to haul ass,” ---- My favourite line, ever.

I really like your version of Seifer. In other words, you made me like Seifer, even if just a little. Considering I wanted to throw him off the damn cliff in the game (after tying his legs together and gagging the bastard) that's quite a feat. U_U

Contrast between 'yay, hope!' and 'freaking screwed!'- made me lol.

"He certainly didn’t feel a pang of nostalgia or homesickness or something for sleepless nights on the Highwind playing cards and being passive-aggressive about Cid’s abominable taste in brandy."
--- THIS. Vincent is very hard to characterise, since he's so stoic outwardly and such a bundle of angsty fun in the squishy middle. I think you hit the mood on the nail with this one- understatement does it so much better than woobie wibbles.

...Oh no, you did not just give me crossover thoughts of Cid and Bobby bonding over bad booze. Shit.

In fact, you're very good at name dropping. Mixing in background information naturally.

“Please understand, Vincent, the Ancients’ power could be what saves the Planet. Sometimes the needs of the many outweigh the needs of a few.” -- This is pretty much my headcanon, for Gast too. Though I think he took it further and only married Ifalna to bring more Cetra into the world, whatever fondness he had for her was overshadowed by that considering he was taping everything...

I think Ifalna may have lied about being the last Ancient too, since if she was a pure Ancient there would have to have been in-breeding like whoa or a plague or something that wiped the rest of them out, Jenova killed most of the Cetra centuries ago after all. The only way Ifalna could have come about would be if there was a viable gene pool left. What happened to that? (Waaay off topic there)

"playing with a full Triple Triad deck" --- Omg, that fucking game. >:( Pick up the wrong rules and you're screwed, plus you run around the world looking for the master only to find she's in your freaking party *headdesk*.

Chaos~ >:3

Woo! See, I've always liked (and often pitied) Seifer, so now I feel all accomplished and stuff. :D

Mixing in background information naturally.
This is wonderful to hear and something I hope you or another person will call me on if I fuck it up too obviously, like with a "~~~FLASHBACK~~~" divider. Well, no, I wouldn't do that, but even rereading this chapter there's a place that still makes me wince, so you know what I mean. READ MY MIND, DUDE.

It's so hard to get a feel for Gast, seriously. Like, it's hard to believe he felt nothing for Ifalna, or Sephiroth for that matter, but at the same time, yeah - the recordings, the experiments, they all went on. :| Maybe you could go with a 'plague' of some kind, maybe in Ifalna's parents' generation that wiped the Ancients out? The Planet is dying...

You know I picked up FF8 again, right, and wtf, Triple Triad is totally a weird mix of Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic: The Gathering. I just save the game before initiating a battle, in case I lose a good card, but at this point it's like IF I'M GOING TO SPEND SO MUCH TIME OBSESSING OVER CARDS I MAY AS WELL BE WORKING ON MY BLACK/WHITE DECK AND WINNING MONEY OUT OF M:TG TOURNAMENTS. OR USING TAROT. Christ.

I don't think I have words for how excited I am about Cloud and Vincent's meeting. XD And Vincent and Squall. And Squall and Seifer.

Oh Seifer, you are such a bitter, broken man who'd punch anyone for offering any kind of sympathy. <3

First of all:
He blinked and he saw Valentine again, short hair and suit, lying on a laboratory floor with a bullet in his heart –
I love Seifer's delusions. I think I mentioned this before.

But then Seifer happened to glance at Fujin and Raijin and the two were watching him patiently, as though he’d never abandoned or used them, and he thought of Leonhart, who had never believed in good or evil, only perspectives
sdfhjkl obviously you can tell what my favorite part of this sentence is. <3 (There's a reason why I love FF8, and this is one of them.)

“There was something said about gardens and seeds,” said Vincent quietly. “What are they to these people?”
...I love Vincent. xD

(“Every life is precious,” Lucrecia said quietly as she fiddled with some flasks, her back to Vincent so she didn’t have to see his expression of horror and disbelief.

(“They why – how could you – “)

(“Please understand, Vincent, the Ancients’ power could be what saves the Planet. Sometimes the needs of the many outweigh the needs of a few.”)


Vincent very much disliked that saying, if ‘dislike’ in this instance were a synonym for the sensation of drowning while a mob held him under. (“What you’re doing to an unborn child- “)
...oh my gosh. all of this. just... oh my gosh.
Lucrecia, seriously. ;~;

He felt wrung out, used, and very, very old as he closed his eyes, turned inward to CHAOS, and said yes
Vincenttttt...!! ..but I loved this line, too.

Squall was instead watching Cloud, the way his unnaturally vivid eyes narrowed, then widened.

“What is it?”

“CHAOS,” said Cloud with a slightly unhinged smile that made Squall wonder, not for the first time, if the guy was actually playing with a full Triple Triad deck.

yessssss.

...so, I'm loving all of the Vincent in this chapter. By the way.
...which isn't surprising, really. I love Vincent, and that seems to be all of this chapter. XD Just, with a little Seifer thrown in.

I've been replaying the game on and off since last week for the first time in ages and the reminders of Squall's moments of philosophy, empathy (gasp), and dry humor have made me a;dslkfj;slkdjfKEYBOARD SMASH. We should have, like, a guitar circle of love around a campfire for FF8.

I only managed a half hour of Dirge of Cerberus before tossing it so I don't actually know if or how Lucrecia justified her participation in Project S. ...Or why demon WEAPON things in Vincent's head is better than Vincent being dead. So I apologize if I'm screwing something up by not adding in canon from the Compilation.

Thanks. :D

It's been a while since I've played FF8... but I do remember it being my favorite game for a very long time. Even though I've never beaten it. I'm all up for a guitar circle of love around a campfire for FF8!!

I think I actually got a few hours into Dirge of Cerberus before throwing it down in a fit of rage. I'm notoriously bad at shooters, but for some reason I thought it would be different for DOC....and I really only wanted it for the cutscenes and the Vincent-Yuffie interaction. But so far, I didn't get much about Lucrecia... and I don't think that she ever justified her participation in Project S. Hmm, my guess on why demon WEAPON things in Vincent's head is better than him being dead is...well, because he wouldn't be dead.

You're welcome <3!!

SO THIS COMMENT TURNED OUT A LITTLE LONGER THAN I EXPECTED. My bad.

I'm...not sure what to say, really. Unless I'm giving concrit to a particular story I try to keep my opinions on the general state of fic in a fandom, negative and positive, to private conversations. To be honest, while I write mostly for FF, I haven't actually read more than the occasional oneshot for it since, like, high school, and especially recently I've been avoiding any recs for other time-travel-ish stories both out of lack of interest and fear that I'll end up appropriating someone else's stuff or having to change something I originally planned. It doesn't help that I'm generally ambivalent, at best, about the changes the Compilation has made to the original canon in terms of plot, atmosphere, and character dynamics, and I get the impression that most recent fic is based around said newness.

I tend to be really picky about what I read, yes (though whether or not what puts me off a fic is hypocritical given what I write I couldn't say, and not everyone agrees with my choices). My few favorites in FF7/8 are at least several years old and tend to be too many chapters of incredible OOT, sometimes OOC whumpage and purple prose because they're so bad I just can't help it, the difference here being the "so bad it's entertaining" rather than "so bad that it's just grating." XD I'd recommend pretty much anything and everything by chibirisuchan and ciceqi, though I think everyone's read their stuff by now ten times over. icedark_elf has some interesting ideas. chofi really is a wonderful writer even if RL has been keeping her too busy lately to write a whole lot. tir_synni is lovely, particularly her Unexpected Side-effects. If you want others you can try asking artimusdin: she herself doesn't write, but she has her fingers in practically everyone's plate in a number of fandoms like the Cthulhu thing she is.

Um, hope that helps? /ramble

Oh this is lovely, lovely. Nothing like a good monster-slaughter to take the sting out of the day =)

Now I can't wait to see if meeting up with Cloud again will actually crack Vincent's silent tough-guy mask.

I really like the story. I don't remember it well enough to know what you changed from the old version but it is very lovely, especially this part. Your Vincent is very lovely, so calm outside, but there's a lot going on inside. I am curious how the following parts will look like. Any major changes in the plot?

Absolutely nothing has changed in the plot, just wording and details in characterization. I literally have the old version open in one window alongside a new Word document, and I rewrite it as I read. Maybe I should've just finished the last few new chapters and been done with it, but rereading the previous ones to remind myself what was going on was painful, dear lord, and damnit I don't want to have to be ashamed of this thing.

Thanks. :) And writing Vincent is actually a lot of fun.
