and last but not least, a reminder of what makes you the special, unique individual you are. I'll let Captain America and Ironman speak for me.
Panel 1 (left vertical):
I will protect you! (bold letters across the top)
Kiss! (single character bubble)
can't believe it!! That girl stole so much from us that we can't even
buy a bottle of Phoenix Downs (i think that's what it is anyway)!! I'm
so freaking mad!
Panel 2 (top right):
Yuffie: Come to Wutai if you have the guts.
Cloud: Materia...My last tangible assets...
Panel 3: Immediately takes the opportunity to reveal his feelings (words across the bottom of panel)
Cloud (left bubble): But Tifa...even if I don't have a single materia or ether, I will still protect you!
(right bubble): Hmm...
Panel 4: In an enemy encounter. The problem is... (words on top and bottom of panel)
Tifa: Ah! Cloud!
Panel 5: Without materia, he's like a weak chicken (words across the bottom of panel)
Walking quickly away (words on the left)
Tifa: Let's head towards Wutai...We'll steal back those materia for you. Don't worry, I'll protect you along the way.
S-sorry for the trouble (OR: Th-thanks. "Sorry for the trouble" is
closer to the literal meaning, but "Thanks" translates a little better.)
The middle picture we'll all continue to guess on though to me it looks like a polite wrestling match to get Tifa OUT of that shirt.
And the third picture has a translation now too thanks to our own sekiharatae who hit up her resources and got us a peek into Cloud and Tifa's sex life.
First panel: "...W-Wait, Cloud. Did you remember to lock the door?"
Second panel: Waiting for her to lock the door.
Third panel: "...Oh...I think I forgot to turn off the gas on the stove..."
Fourth panel: Waiting for her to turn off the gas.
So it looks like our hero just can't catch a break. But as long as he's got Tifa with him it looks like it'll be fine ;)
He watches the rain
Not through the glass of the window
But instead he watches its reflection
Against her pale skin as she sleeps.
He watches the sun
Not with eyes on the sky
But instead he watches the way it
Catches in her hair when she turns suddenly to look at him.
He watches the moon
Not by the shadows it casts on the wooden floor once the lights are gone
But instead he watches it fill the hollows
Of her collarbone and wonders if trapped light has a taste.
He watches the world
Not by the rushing blur it gives him as it unwinds in front of his eyes
But instead he watches it in every shade and shadow and point of light
That shows over her quietly expressive face.

I had so much fun with everyone guessing at who was who in the game. Here's the official list and we'll see how well I did at representing everyone.
Swift – Reno
Mace – Yuffie
Black – Zack
White – Sephiroth
Lily - Tseng
Tifa’s fiancée - Rude
Terrorists – Yazoo, Loz, Kadaj (with Kadaj being the one inside the computer)
and congrats to everyone that figured out the inside joke that 'Steve' and 'Ayumi' are the English and Japanese voice actors for Cloud and Tifa respectively. ;)
Summary: a 200 word drabble prompted by the word 'awkward'. And let me tell you - it was supposed to be 100 words. See how bad I am? lol

And then you all showed up with your verbal snuggles like a rainstorm and totally buried me in affection. Being reminded that I was important enough to be remembered and that I was that loved... it's changed the way the upcoming year's coming in and I'm really liking the new view of it. So thank you to everyone that took the time to let me know I was precious whether here, or through my email or just with their thoughts. It's changed both the way I'm going into this next year and this next year itself. Thank you for that. Thank you more than I can say.
And, to share the wealth because the best part of getting new toys is sharing them with others - two new fics for you! My beloved fenikkusuken pulled together with her bunnies from the hutch and brought in summer with the kind of heat that you don't mind at all with her story windswept. And a new addition to my 'Must. Read. Immediately!' list comes in from lr_darkeyes92 with the kind of wonderful 'how it all started - again' that I will never get tired of reading - exclusive. Both are really melt your bones sweet with their own tangs of solid Cloti goodness that remind you why we love this pairing so and are definite Must Reads. Make sure you leave them plenty of juicy reviews because that will hopefully encourage them to Do It Again! (cause there's never enough Cloti) ;)
On top of that all - happy, happy, happy day, Holly!
Thanks, my much loved and adored, crazy, wonderful, large-hearted sweetheart friends. You've given me an awesome birthday and a new year to look forward to. Rock on.
Setting: FFVII gametime
Summary: for the prompt: Cloud/Tifa - 'he'd have to make sure he kept his hands to himself'
