I wonder if on some level he might be jealous of who you are?
Could be. But there is also some deep-seating resentment based on the ShinRa programs and things like that which I really don't feel comfortable getting into without his permission. It has a lot to do with what was said and done and all that crap. So, I completely understand where he is coming from and don't push the issues. I want him to get better and healthier in this world which means that I do my best not to aggravate and let Angeal step in to handle Genesis where he feels he needs to (especially with the temper - Angeal is the only one who gets through). Those two have been close friends for so long that Angeal is really the only one who counts in Genesis's playbook - a close second would be Sephiroth (that friendship is mending steadily, which I am pleased about).
But, yes, Genesis is very much the introvert of the group and I think that, like you occasionally, he really wants to be an extrovert, but can only sustain that for so long before it just makes him itch.
you remind me a lot of my brother
You know, I get that a lot. Must be something about me, I guess. I really am a people-person. I mean, I instantly warmed up to Angeal and he used to tell me all these insane stories (some of which I thought were training exercises - turns out he was just messing with me). Sephiroth and I have settled into a really easy friendship, can you believe that...me and the General! ^_^ Sometimes I still sit back and smack myself in the face on that one just to make sure I'm not dreaming. And Cloud and me - well, we hardly ever had any chance to hang out after we first met, not until a few days off in Nibelheim, but for some reason he is my best bud now. He's my boy and I am so very proud of who he is becoming even now. Hell, even Weiss and I have started hanging out. That can be blamed on the route, but hell, the more the merrier! ^_^
See, I am only here part-time. I am really just here to get all these guys moving forward in life; to get them out of the rut and keep them looking toward brighter times. I sort of look out for them, give them encouragement where needed and help them heal old hurts. The rest of the time I am Lifestream and reside there with my love. Together we are focused on so many things it isn't even funny! ^_^
Red heads...yeah, Schuldig is a little on the special scale because he actually likes his food hot hot hot! Maybe his tastebuds are all burned to a crisp and he doesn't feel anything anymore. But no, he doesn't go to the dentist and I can't imagine Genesis volunteering either. For the Wers, I think it was mostly Zechs that dealt with dental procedures. Over here it is the Yohji Contingent (mostly Tadashi) and let me tell you how bizarre that is - When Tadashi goes to get the teeth cleaned, he literally will fall asleep in the chair. even with all the noise in our head from the picks and suction, he will fall dead asleep! he says he can't help it...he finds it soothing. O_o;;;
IIRC Schuldig was the redhead?
Oh yeah! ^_^
Thanks for being patient with me!
Whut? Nah! You're good. I am enjoying our conversation, no need to thank me. ^_^
Oh, and I saw your pictures in the cupcakes community...YUMMY!
