Title: Build-A-Cat
Challenge/Prompt: #168 - Purpose
Characters/Pairings: Reno, Reeve
Rating: G
Warnings: none

Reno didn't bother with knocking. It was one of the perks of being a Turk. He walked into Reeve's flat, to find the man working on a model of a hand, each joint cast in bright silvery metal. The nails looked a bit long though. And curved.

"Claws?" he asked, and laughed as Reeve jumped in startlement.

"Knock, will you?" asked Reeve, waving the metal hand at him.

Reno indicated the hand. "Why?"

"The only way to have a friend in Shin-Ra is to build one," shrugged Reeve.

"I wouldn't say that," grinned Reno. "I definitely wouldn't go that far..."

Title: Leverage
Challenge/Prompt: #167: Suspect
Characters/Pairings:
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I own nada.
Summary: Cait doesn't handle suspicion well.
Author's Notes: I honestly never liked Barrett.

"I think they know," mewed Cait, over their private comm line. "They know it's you. I'm sorry boss, I'm really sorry."

Reeve tried to put a smile in his tone, since it was only an audio line. "Calm down, Cait. Where are you all? The Icicle Inn? I think I'm safe enough in Midgar, don't you?"

"Not from Barrett," Cait replied, worried. "He thinks you'll hurt Marlene. He said he'd rip my arms off if he thought that would help. I don't want him to rip my arms off!"

"And that's why we still have Marlene," Reeve sighed. "For leverage."

Title: Hunting Season
Challenge/Prompt: #166 - Sky
Characters/Pairings: Reeve/Rufus
Rating: G
Warnings: Cute kittens ahoy!
Disclaimer: I own nada
Summary: You know Reeve's cure for anything would be More Kittens.
Author's Notes: So this cub has more than one tentacle. They're nearly hands!

The dark nation cub was growing well, and Rufus was wearing protective bracers while teaching it to control its tentacles properly. It had a tendency, still, to grip too hard and throttle or break whatever it tried to grab with them.

"We'll need to build it a pen soon," Reeve mused, watching Rufus' not-exactly-work. "So it can hunt on its own, under open sky."

"I know," said Rufus, almost sadly, as one of the tentacles wrapped affectionately around his protected wrist. "I'd rather go with him."

Reeve smiled. "When you're finished healing, love. Consider it our incentive program for you."

Characters/Pairings: Reeve, Cloud
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Disclaimer: I own nada
Author's Notes: Probably post-Dirge...


They sat quietly at a makeshift table in Edge, drinking tea. Reeve didn't seem to feel out of place amid the ruins and wreckage; Cloud's bike seemed to serve as some kind of security blanket, the assurance of escape.

"I'd just like to be normal," said Cloud firmly. "But it never seems to happen."

Reeve's fingers curled around the fragile cup as he raised it to his lips. "I've heard that lament before," he said gently. "Ten years ago, or so, from another young one."

He set the cup down. "I will help you," he decided. "It's... hard, being special."

Rating: G
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I own nada
Summary: Can you imagine the furor if post-Dirge Rufus tried eating out?
Author's Notes: none

"Do you ever miss it?" asked Rufus, snagging a piece of perfectly prepared sushi between his chopsticks.

Reeve shrugged slightly. "Eating at a restaurant? Sometimes, yes. It's a kind of bubble, your life. Not a lot of the rest of the world gets in."

Rufus ate neatly, like a cat, quick small bites. "I'd be shot if I went out in public. Again. It wasn't the most pleasant experience. I can skip the repeat."

"And it's got nothing to do with your personal sense of privacy," said Reeve, in a tone that implied he didn't believe a word of it.

Title: Recovery
Challenge/Prompt: #162: Enchanted
Characters/Pairings: Reeve/Rufus, Cait Sith
Rating: G
Warnings: post-Dirge, I suspect.
Disclaimer: I owns nada.
Author's Notes: Didn't anyone at Square care about this loose end?

The sphere glowed greenish-white, like all the Lifestream condensed in a single shimmering stone. Cait's small feline body staggered under the dense sphere, as it set the materia down on the desk in front of Rufus.

Who picked it up as if it were the condensed wealth of the whole planet - and in a way, it was. "The white materia," he said softly. "How did you get your hands on this?"

Cait purred as Reeve scritched it behind the ears. "Cloud never wanted to see that place again, understandably. I just sent Cait back there to look for it."

Title: Slow time
Challenge/Prompt: #161: Glow
Characters/Pairings: Reno, Rude, Reeve/Rufus implied.
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I own nada!
Summary: You have to figure that while Avalanche was in the Crater, a lot of people who couldn't be there were holding their breath.


The room was lit only by the sharp lights of LED readouts and the soft glow of materia, at this late hour. Rude stood guard at the door, Reno at the windows; the facility was secluded but not undiscoverable, and their charges had enemies.

Rufus had been recovered first, helicoptered away; Reeve had been dug, battered, from the shattered foundations of the same building. And now they lay in beds side by side, bound in bandages, intravenously fed the soft shimmer-sheen of potions.

Cait Sith did the world-saving for them all now, cut off from its father-god; the Turks guarded.

Title: Subtle rebellion
Challenge/Prompt: #160: Razor.
Characters/Pairings: Reeve
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I own nada
Summary: Anyone note that beards don't happen often in the world of FF7?

Reeve navigated the razor carefully across his face, trimming his beard along precise lines. The President had issues with facial hair, and the compromise was always that it be 'properly maintained'. Which meant that stubble was not allowed, cut lines had to be ruler-straight, not a hair out of place.

It was, in its way, worth it. A statement that he was not in the same mold as the other department heads. There were lines. There were limits. There were rules.

Of course, none of them noticed. That was part of the point, really. It was just Reeve's little oddity...

Title: Revelations
Challenge/Prompt: #159: Fireplace.
Characters/Pairings: Reeve/Rufus
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I own nada.

Rufus kept a suite in the Shin-Ra tower; it was, as he'd noted, the most secure location on the planet (attacks by Sephiroth and Avalanche notwithstanding) and, naturally, it meant the shortest commute in the city.

What Reeve hadn't expected was tasteful warmth to dominate the decor, and a couch by a fireplace, and a bottle of chilled wine. That Rufus had style was obvious to anyone with eyes; the surprise was that he had taste as well.

He sipped the wine, and watched Rufus tend the fire, wondering to himself if anyone else ever got to see all this.
