FF7CC: Hero's End -Spoilers by ShiroiNeko-sama FF7CC: Hero's End -Spoilers by ShiroiNeko-sama
SPOILERS~YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Well, technically Square Enix has already spoiled us of Zack 10 years ago in FFVII.

So this is a more visual spoiler from the latest compilation, Crisis Core.

(Warning again, she speaks of spoilers, so those who haven't played/don't have a PSP and is spoiler sensitive, better close your eyes so you won't read this)

Sniff, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH~~~

Man, looks like I am sensitive when it comes to death, whether it is someone in real life or a fictional character, I always cry when I see one.

I cried TWICE in Crisis Core, once during Angeal's death (WAAAAA~~~even Zack cries for him...) and then the ending.

I don't know how many times have I watch the ending (which, besides watching it in the game, I also downloaded the ripped video from the internet), and I STILL can't hold back my tears.

So in the end, I decided to draw a fanart of the scene where Zack was shown taken to his afterlife in the Lifestream by Angeal. That part totally made my eyes flow like a waterfall and also the part where Cloud finally got his senses back remembering flashbacks of him and Zack.

When I think about it, Zack was all young, bubbly and hyper at the beginning of the game, but gradually throughout the game he starts to lose all that energy when he starts to lose his comrades one by one, particularly Angeal.

Coz like, well, Angeal died, Genesis; who could've been a friend and fellow SOLDIER comrade but went gugugaga just coz he got a friggin wing stuck behind his back and who else but Zack that can stop him, Sephiroth; yes, he was Zack's friend but then he got obsessesed with his so called mother and died, later he lost his trust with Shin-ra's Turks; namely Tseng and Cissnei, then got experimented and stuff and in the end, he only got Cloud, which costs his life to protect.

But at least he still got his charming smile in tact throughout the game and even when he died, he still smiled.

Thus end of Zack-ness.

If I owned FF7, all the characters I loved will live and the ones I hate dies. so Zack/FFVII (c) Square Enix.

Art (c) Me

I'd prefer it if Genesis had died instead of Angeal. It broke my heart to see Angeal and Zack die.

Oh Glod, the ending of that game made me cry so hard.
Then I went outside and made a "grave" for the Zack I grinded like crazy because I was so sad. :iconemocloudplz:
Then I figured out that you restart again from the beginning with all your items and materia. So it was like the came back to life and then I was happy. :iconhappycloudplz:
Teh End :iconderpplz:
I like your art. It's so- shiny and stuff. Very detailed. Even the "demon hands" are good. So..pretty...

... (sniffs) I cried so frickin hard for both Angeal and Zack... Mainly cause them and Cloud are my favorite characters. My mom came home to seeing me crying on the computer and cursing Squeenix. And wow... That's a really, REALLY, pretty picture... So colorful. And... reminds me of Zack (sniffs again)

*Waaaah*

But the ONE THING that confused me the most about this game was when Zack said "That girl said that the sky frightened her."

That girl? Dude, really? You don't remember her name? But then Aerith chased after Cloud, so she got what was coming to her. X3

This actually made me cry......*sniffle* This artwork is absolutely stunning. I can't stop crying right now, how lame of me...The expression on Zack's face is so hauntingly calm, yet really sad. This is truly amazing, and so are you. I love your entire gallery, that I want to favorite everything.

Nice art... I just loved the song in the ending, i definately made me cry more.. D:
The one that was most dramatic, in my opinion, was his last line..just before credit roll
At least you get a new game every time...Still *sniff*
Animations like that are just rare...You'll never see something like that in the PSP for a long time

How can I even begin to describe how beautiful this is. Shiny feathers falling all around, beautiful glowingness. Angeal's reaching hand. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I have been longing for a picture like this since I saw the ending so my thanks a hundred times over.

On another note I cry every time I see it as well... Just Gah! It is the most beautiful death scene I have ever se-en. *Loves the Zack*
