In December 2006, the Final Fantasy VII Citadel held a Kingdom Hearts-themed drabble competition.
The basic rules were to write a drabble (a fanfic totaling 100 words) set in either the FFVII world or the Kingdom Hearts world (with at least one of KH's FFVII characters present).
The names were taken off of each entry, which were then presented to staff members Seb, BlueJay, and CloudANDTidus for judging; each staffer then picked their three favorite works.
What follows are the winning entries for this competition:
"The Truth of the Nibelheim Incident" by Empy Claw
Sephiroth poured over the books found in the Shinra Mansion library. Night and day he read through the tomes, and soon learned about anything and everything. He had read through nearly every book, when he came upon an untouched shelf. He picked up one of the books, and became upset immediately.
"What the hell?! What are these people writing about? Cloud… and me… doing that?! And who's this? Mary Sue? Why am I—? 'Sephiroth leaned in and pressed his lips upon hers.' Who wrote this?… That's it… All record of these atrocious things must be annihilated. Nibelheim must be destroyed!"
"Conversation" by LastCetra
“I don’t know why,” said Sora, “but there’s something about you that makes me trust you.”
Aerith laughed. “Really? What?”
“I dunno.” He shrugged. “It’s like you’re my older sister.”
“It’s good to be appreciated every so often. I trust you too, Sora. It’s because we’re so alike.”
“In what way?”
“We’re both searching for someone.”
“I met a guy like that once. He was quiet with spiky chocobo hair. His name was Cloud.”
Aerith stiffened. “Cloud?”
“Yeah, he said was searching for someone too.”
“Cloud…” A faint smile played on her lips.
“What is it? Something wrong?”
"(Untitled)" by Demonick
It had been… too long. He sometimes wondered if they remembered him. Or… if he even remembered them.
Enough. This isn’t helping me find my way back. He shook his head, dismissing the thought. Admitting that it scared him was something he could never do—so, he would settle for searching for those people that made up his broken little family. Maybe… maybe deep down he was desperate.
Desperate enough for this.
Cloud narrowed his eyes, glaring at the boy standing across the arena. If this was what Hades was demanding… if this was what it took…
So be it.
Congrats to the winners, and thanks to everyone who entered!
