Summary: 100 word drabble. Cloud and his claws.
Notes: leaving aside the 'grabbed first thing from Vinnie's closet theory'...
As he flexed gold-tipped fingers, Cloud hoped he’d never have to use them. But there they were: claws. Different than the sword he usually used, and different from the gun he’d originally been trained with. Those were far less personal. Those had distance to them, even if it was only inches.
Almost immediately he wanted to take them back off and be rid of them. However, this time he knew he had to be the one to change, instead of just accepting changes as they were thrust onto him.
He was no hero, but he had good reason to survive.
