just a note: Zack couldn't have been 18 at the time of the Wutai war, not unless the war took place the same year as the Nibelhiem mission (which I somehow doubt) since Zack was 18 during that.

Heh. I like your Scarlet.

He wasn’t stupid enough to do that to himself -- or to Sephiroth, because he knew how the man would react if Zack went and got himself killed for asking one compassionate question too many. This just makes me wonder how Sephrioth would react if the Turks really did kill Zack. Hmm, will have to ask for that the next time someone prompts for drabble ideas. Or perhaps I'll get off my lazy butt and write that myself. XD

<3 on Zack

(SOB) WIKIPEDIA YOU HAVE FAILED ME! T____T Everything I found on Google had Zack's age as ?? and Wikipedia didn't give any specifics and all it said about Sephiroth was "born twenty-five to thirty years before the game" and so that meant he'd be twenty to twenty-five during Nibelheim and I'd gotten the impression from somewhere that Wutai's end had been four or five years before Nibelheim and that left the possibility of a mid-teens Sephiroth winning their war for them and I HAD TO PLAY WITH THE BUNNY. I never caught the part saying Zack was 18...

(...whoa, has Shinra made a HABIT of recruiting thirteen-year-olds or something? Because if Zack was 18 at Nibelheim and the Wutai war was four or five years earlier than that... #_#)

(sweatdrop) I think this is a continuity error I can't fix, because the age question is so deeply woven into this fic, but I can try to keep it in mind in the future...

Haha, it's fine. You would have only known Zack's age if you were paying close attention in Last Order. If you scroll down on the essay I wrote here you'll find a screen shot I included that show's Zack's age. He was prob 15-16 when the war happened because Cloud was 16 at the time of the Nibelheim mission. That means the war would have been 2 years before Cloud joined since Yuffie had to be young but able to survive on her own (she left Wutai soon after the war).

(slightly baffled about the link to the shoe store... ^^;;)
(madly headscritches)
okay, doin' math... Zack was 18 at Nibelheim, Sephiroth was 20 to 25, Cloud was 16.

Cloud joined at 14, I'm positive I read somewhere he'd been in the ranks for two years before Nibelheim, which made Zack 16 then and Sephiroth 18 to 23 or so.

If Wutai ended two years before Cloud joined, then Zack would have been 14 and Sephiroth 16 to 21 because it'd have been four years pre-game, and Yuffie would've been... er... teeensy...

(head hurts now...)

If you go to Gongaga and talk to Zacks' parents they tell you that he left 10 years ago, which makes him 13 if you go by 'Last Orders' age for Zack.
