A RufusxCloud community...
I really should focus on this community more.
A couple of reminders and other things:
1) To the participants of the Theme Challenge, you guys have one more month-- the deadline's July 5.
2) Once again, I'm going to try and make this place come alive. Next week, I'll be posting the Bi-weekly challenges. ^__^ This will be different from the Theme Challenge. Every other Saturday, I'll post a prompt/word/theme to inspire people. This challenge will last two weeks before I put up another prompt/word/theme. This is completely freestyle-- you can write drabbles, one-shots, epics, art-related things, as long as it is Rufus and Cloud-related and it follows the prompt/word/theme. You can submit as many entries as you want. However, this will not be a competition; the purpose of this is just to inspire people, so there is no voting and there is no reward.
I'm not going to be too strict on the format; just make sure to mention the basics (title, author, rating, warning, etc) and the prompt/word/challenge.
3) Discussion topic: I've been discussing the Rufus/Cloud pairing all over my journal and with some of my ff7 friends. A lot of us in this community love the Rufus/Cloud pairing, but if it you were to write the pairing yourself, how would you make them go together?
I have a lot of theories; I figure if they have the same enemy (like Sephiroth) and were forced to work together, they have no choice but to forget or dismiss their differences, which might or might not lead to other things. /wink/
I could also write a What if!story for them, taking place before the game; however, BC canon is too messy, at least in my opinion.
I could also write a story taking place after AC, (which I will do for the Theme Challenge).
I could write an in-game fic of them, though that gets a little tricky because of the canon itself.
Or I can write an Au (which I will at some point) which is a whole lot easier. XD
How about you guys?
4) If you guys have any other ideas as to how to improve this community or inspire people, do tell. I’m all open for ideas.

PS. If you have any questions, please ask. ^^
Edit: Woops, I meant Bi-weekly.
