It sounded like the setup for a bad joke, but the bad joke was Elena’s life. She was off duty, her suit jacket slung over the back of her barstool, and Strife just had to make an entrance. Reno and Rude weren’t there. No other AVALANCHE members either. There wasn’t a buffer between the two blonds.
“I’m off-duty, but that’s not an invitation to try anything.”
for each 💋 ill write a nsfw headcanon about my muse.
Tifa loves to snuggle after sex. Slow, sensual kisses while naked in bed together make her feel incredibly satisfied and whole after sharing such an intimate experience with someone.
Speaking of slow, she loves slow kisses. Being able to have long, drawn out moments of sharing a kiss with someone not only turns her on, but it makes her heart race. This kind of closeness means a lot to her. It’s a lot more fun to take her time.
the be honest meme. aka things you lowkey want to talk about but don’t because you don’t know how to bring it up. send me a number and i’ll tell you the honest truth. either a simple yes or no answer or a detailed response.
Have you ever felt pressured to write something you weren’t comfortable with?
It takes a lot to really bum me out. Like, generally I’m very open - I’ve RPed dark themes on other characters and I’ve been open to many different concepts so long as like, the meat between the bread and butter is good. But I wont lie - sometimes my sort of…I guess like, friendly demeanor can get a little awkward? I did have someone once RP as a child around one of my characters and their behaviour was….extremely uncomfortable. Like, their character was meant to be five-ish and yet everything they wrote had a sexual undertone. It was SO uncomfortable. It was one of the few times I’ve had to message somebody and say look, I’m sorry, but no. There was never anything outwardly sexual - but just their style / mannerisms were very questionable. It just didn’t sit right with me, y’know?
I think in the past as well I’ve fallen guilty of going along with ships just for the sake of it. Years back I shipped with somebody who was very enthusiastic about our ship. So much so that like, I’d wake up to messages / edits / pictures / tags. That was okay, a little weird because of how excessive it was but okay. But one day, I went to work and after finishing - I had 11 messages (fanmail back then) from this person asking where I was, why I was ignoring her, why I hated her and finally how she was going to kill herself.
It was not good times, y’know? I still feel guilty for not being a little firmer with people initially but I always believe in giving people a chance, y’know? I hope these people have at least realised their dumb shit now and have changed from that. I hold no grudges - I like to think I’ve learnt from these things.
Are you open to duplicates? Why / why not?
Of course I am! I’m one of those people who firmly believes that these characters don’t belong to us, but we can make them our own and I think that for each and every duplicate. Like, my Biggs will never be the same as someone elses and vice versa? The only issue I have with duplicates is that plots are so hard to make! Like, there’s some cool meta shit there and some funny crack but plotting can be surprisingly hard!
I have dealt with duplicate problems in the past. There was one who outright stole a headcanon of mine, immediately after I - myself - had posted it. Then they proceeded to block me…Oooooh, I aint the bitter type, but that rubbed me up the wrong way! Then there was another that used to trash talk me to other people. He would message my friends cryptic shit like ‘oh your favourite —– is online;’ I also had partners receive anons about me asking for their opinions of me or stating my writing wasn’t as good as whoever elses. It was so weird and awkward and like, ew. But at the same time, there were some amazing duplicates who where awesome so all in all, it’s one of them.
But no, yeah, I fucking love duplicates!
How do you feel about vague posting?
Ah, it’s one of them isn’t it? Like, it depends on the matter really. Don’t get me wrong, I think if someones slightly pissed you off. Say not cut their post and you then post like ‘urgh, wish people would cut their posts’ - I don’t really take issue with that. Way I see it, it’s just a general gripe. It’s not personal. However, if somebody’s been plotting with you and their portrayal isn’t geling with your own and you then post like ‘wish some people would learn how to play their characters lol fuckin idiots’ - that’s a dick move. You’re not only gonna worry that RPer, but everybody else too!
Also vague posting regarding people saying ‘ahhhh, I’m shy i wish I could chat to people’ - those are fine vague posts I think, but I would totally say yooo, approach them! Go for it!
mercy says she hates children. she does not. in fact, she is very good friends with the majority of the neighborhood kids and their parents trust her took look out for them. and since she can’t have kids over own, sometimes she has to act like one.
when i comes to babies, she’ll hold them out as far as she can and make disgusted faces at them and have absolutely no idea what to do with them.
feeds stray dogs, gives them names, and dispenses justice to anyone she sees being mean to them. she doesn’t care if she draws a little blood or gets carried away. dogs have no voices and she’ll gladly speak for them: “don’t fucking hurt me.” seems easy enough of a lesson to get across.
in control, out of control, whatever the mood calls for is what she’s going it.
BONUS: yes, she is lazy. yes, her loyalties usually lie with the highest bidder. and when meteor falls, she doesn’t care about many people. but… if it means watching the world burn with you, or saving it with you, it doesn’t matter, cloud strife. as long as she’s with you.
🍋 - Does your muse complain about things to you? If so, what?
Honestly, unless I’m logged in or I’m writing headcanons down in google docs, Dietrich doesn’t really cross my mind, so I can’t think of her as some sort of separate entity. I can’t force myself to think in character, only to write in character.
The best I can offer for this question is, I think about her when I listen to FF7 music or I’m consuming other forms of media that remind me of her in some way.
🍌 - What drew you into the fandom in the first place?
As I touched on here, I really love FF7 because of how much my sister loved it. She grew out of her fiendish devotion to the game and movie, but it really stuck with me.
And, before anyone asks, she still is getting the remake.
🍉 - If you considered a time travel thread, when would your muse go?
Dietrich would probably travel to just before her sister’s father fucked off.
We’ll drink together And when we drink, we’ll drink together, not alone.
We’ll sing together And when we sing, we’ll sing together, not alone.
We’ll fight together And when we fight, we’ll fight together, not alone.
We’ll fall together And if we fall, we’ll fall together, not alone.
Snarling at the blond as he aimed some thunder magic towards the blond, he hadn’t let it go off yet but he wasn’t going to let him steal another as he growled out. “Steal another fry and I’ll do more then shock you, I’ll gut you like a fucking fish. Understand?”

Elena wasn’t sure if it was before or after the end of the world, but she knew it didn’t even matter anymore. It had to be pretty close to the big finale because there she was fighting off grassland pests with the terrorist adjacent asshole who probably didn’t stab her (former?) boss after all considering he just let himself get socked in the jaw the last time she ran into him. Was that the last time she ran into him? She’d stopped keeping track of it.
The last Gagighandi went down like a bag of sand thanks to Strife’s big ugly sword, and he swung it around like a flag before holstering it against his back. It’s funny, the battle wasn’t anywhere near tough but she’s somehow too exhausted to snipe at him with a post-battle quip.
Strife opened his mouth to say something, then closed it and pursed his lips in something that might have be akin to confusion. Or maybe annoyance. Elena didn’t care to psychoanalyze him at that point. Then he closed the distance between them and took her hands in his. Even with the bulky gloves, they radiated an almost comforting warmth, as the corners of his eyes crinkled into a smile. Strife’s lips still looked less like they were genuinely smiling and more like a shit-eating grin. At least, that’s what it looked like to her.
“What the hell…” Elena didn’t pull her hands away from his, even though she figured maybe she should have. “Is this your way of trying to keep me from decking you again?”
