ok i’m gonna rant for a minute
because despite being a not-so-secret clerith shipper
i hate the cloti/clerith shipping wars
or the fanfics where tifa and aerith are like worst enemies
because you guys do realize that they’re seriously like the best of friends and pretty much inseparable in the game right? like 8 times out of 10 if the party is split up and hanging around somewhere, aerith and tifa are almost always together.
despite the two of them having obvious affection for cloud (and anyone can argue that aerith was attracted to the zack she saw in cloud but w/e ur welcome to ur opinion)
they still managed to develop a beautiful friendship, and not let any romantic feelings get in the way of what their job and their goal was.
