Consciousness returned slowly. Reeve blinked, the light shining through his lashes spikes and stars. Kidnapped, then. Again. At least this time it seemed like they'd spared him the lump on the head.

"Miles?" If he was kidnapped, his hands and ankles strapped to a cool stainless steel table -- just judging by experience -- Miles would be here somewhere. Probably having a moral crisis of some sort.

Reeve made an attempt at pulling himself off the table, but they'd figured out the straps this time, it seemed. He was well and truly pinned, and no tools left within easy reach this time, either.

"We really ought to stop meeting like this."

City of Ariel || Profile

□ Name: Reeve Tuesti
□ Journal: urbandev.dreamwidth.org
□ Series: Final Fantasy VII
□ Canon point: Post-Dirge of Cerberus
□ History: http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Reeve_Tuesti is the most complete, however I disagree entirely that it is “strongly implied” that Reeve has children. His parents refer to each other as “Grandmother” and “Grandfather” in one scene, which is a dialect and translation flub. (“Old mother” would be more appropriate.) Neither a wife nor any children is ever mentioned in extended canon, and, in fact, Cait Sith is referred to as his “child” and implied child-substitute. Additionally, extended canon (specifically Case of Denzel) retcons this entire scene.
□ Personality: Overall, Reeve is smart and effective. Once he’s committed to a goal, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish it. He’s an extremely skilled man, excelling at everything from urban design to entirely new forms of science. There’s very little Reeve can’t do. He’s literally built cities, developed new energy technologies, and invented AI. Unfortunately, this kind of single minded dedication can (and frequently has) led to him participating in or complying with some really terrible deeds.

Reeve tends to invent first and realize the ramifications later, especially during his time with ShinRa. (Mako reactors were a particularly bad idea. And he accidentally created sentient Cait Siths.) Once he’s in, he doesn’t know how to extricate himself. He kidnaps Marlene and blackmails AVALANCHE to keep him in the team. He never raises more than a token protest to the Sector 7 plan, which results in the death of several people. Reeve is the kind of person with the capacity to do very terrible things if it’s for a cause he believes in. He’ll feel very bad about it afterwards, but he’ll still do it. He’s grown better at being critical about the outcome of things before committing, but that ruthless drive is still there, particularly when it comes to protecting the citizens of Edge.

Reeve is very mechanically minded, so his interactions with other people tend to be pretty awkward. He's a lot more proficient at dealing with animals and inanimate objects, and he prefers to communicate in writing, or, if necessary, over the phone, rather than braving face to face interactions, because it gives him more time to consider what he's saying.

Paradoxically, when Reeve does get close to someone, he gets very attached very quickly. Even after his time in ShinRa, he tends to trust too easily. He always expects the best of everyone, which is a double-edged sword: people who respond to his trust generally rise to meet it, which is the reason for much of his success in the WRO. This is visible in Reeve’s small role in Advent Children, where he leaves Cloud a phone message that encourages him to come out of hiding, and throughout Dirge of Cerberus, the game in which Reeve manages to guilt Vincent into fixing everything ever.

On the other hand, this also creates opportunities for people to fall short of his expectations, or take advantage of his giving nature. Certainly his dreams for Midgar were never realized; his Mako reactors were co-opted and turned into weaponry by Scarlet. Somehow, he spends years in a position where he knows his abilities are being misused, and even lets it escalate past the point where an entire sector of his city has been massacred before finally following his conscience and turning on ShinRa. Obviously, he hasn’t learned, since he pledges his loyalty as completely to Cloud and later to Vincent in DoC, although neither misuses him the way ShinRa did.

Reeve does take responsibility for his actions, though often not until after the fact. This leads to a lot of guilt and self-recriminations. Sometimes they’re productive (forming the WRO after Midgar’s destruction) but more often, they manifest as sulks. Sometimes these can go for weeks or even months until someone smacks him out of it. (For instance, during and after the destruction of Sector 7, he is defeated and sullen. These traits reappear after the WRO’s defeat in DoC, though Vincent takes him to task much more promptly.) My headcanon is also that the death of the Cait Siths -- One in FFVII and one in DoC -- affect him very deeply. Cait Sith is clearly established as a sentient being from the very beginning (saying things like “Don’t forget me even if another Cait Sith comes along!” in the original game) and is referred to in Ultimania Omega as Reeve’s child, so I find it very natural that Reeve responds very strongly to the loss of one of them, triggering similar depressive episodes, even if they’re never shown in canon.

□ Age: Compilation establishes Reeve as 35 in FFVII, making him 36 in Advent Children and 38/39 in Dirge of Cerberus. (I tend to stretch his age upward as much as possible, due to canon contradictions. Reeve designed the mako reactors, which are an integral part of Midgar’s structure. In addition, he’s referenced as the “director of City Planning”. Unfortunately, in the original game Midgar is established as a 15 year construction project, which means that Reeve must have designed both the city and the Mako reactors before turning 20... which I find pretty unlikely.)
□ Gender: Male
□ Appearance: Here’s a canon screenshot, and here’s the best fan art of all time.
□ Abilities/Powers: Reeve’s only “power” is science. Basically, if it’s math-based, he can do it. Architecture, urban planning, weapons making, automotive mechanics, coding, programming, structural engineering: all things Reeve does in canon. Midgar was his design, based off a brand new source of energy he also designed. He’s involved in multiple energy projects (first Mako, and then green energies, and the WRO is also exploring conventional energies, namely oil.) He builds Cait Sith and programs him, accidentally creating AI in the process. He customizes his own weapons. Builds a truck called the Shadowfox. Basically, he’s the Tony Stark of the FFVII world.


Outside of drafting boards and tool boxes, though, Reeve is fairly useless. He can fight using Cait Sith, but realistically Cait Sith is a materia mule and a stealth fighter, not good in a head-on confrontation. Although he carries a rifle, he’s pretty worthless with it. He’s even worse in any sort of hand-to-hand situation. And, while his resume is impressive, it’s not particularly applicable to life in Ariel. Most of Reeve’s skills, while highly necessary in Gaia, have no real application anywhere else, unless you need a building built.
□ Personal Items:
1. PHS/phone (I’m assuming it won’t work until he reaches higher levels.)

2. Laptop (ditto)
3. Tool kit. Just your basic thing, wire cutters/strippers, pliers, screwdriver set, thread, needles.
4. His ugly blue coat. He loves that thing.
I would love for him to have, as his final item, a Cait Sith. It can be deactivated and powered down until he reaches higher status (or permanently if the mods prefer) but Reeve will try to get it working and/or build a new one. Give that Cait Sith is almost a second character, however, I understand the difficulties this might poise.

(A note on these links: I recently re-keyworded his icons, so a lot of the threads are sad and ugly now. I swear they didn’t used to be!)
□ Third Person Sample: The WRO was still more of a figurehead than an actual authority to be respected, and it was his fault more than anyone’s. That was why he was here, in his office, at almost three AM with only a bag of chocolates and a cat for company.

“I promise we’ll go home as soon as this is done,” he said for the third time, to no response. Before, he’d gotten the flick of an ear, or a tail -- something. “Chocolate?” he offered the creature, with the same results. “Good, more for me.” He popped the proffered piece into his own mouth, dropping his hand to rub between the feline’s ears.

He paused over Barret’s report on the oil well again. The man’s exuberance read clearly, even through text, and he couldn’t not smile. “The thing is,” he said to the cat, speaking aloud again to order his thoughts, “It’s progress, but it’s not the right sort of progress, is it?”


The oil well would provide energy for the entire southern district of Midgar’s Edge City, and with winter coming on fast and angry, that was nothing to sneeze at. Reeve made himself think about the children, their parents, who would benefit from the refinery when it was up and running next month. He made himself think about those who hadn’t been so lucky last year, just after the destruction of meteor. This was a good step.

Unfortunately, it was still a step backward. He twisted a pencil between his fingers, making tiny, meaningless check-marks on the report he was staring at. Fossile fuels, non-renewable resources -- they were going right back down a path they’d walked before, and look where it had gotten them with Midgar.

Behind his desk, set aside on the shelving unit that held all of his abandoned dreams, was a model of a hydro-electric plant. Edge was barely close enough to the sea for it to be effective, and the time, the money that would have to go into building entirely new technology... “cost prohibitive,” that was the term his accountants used. He kept his temper and didn’t tell them what he’d wanted to; that he’d worked for ShinRa, that lives, that the life of the planet, was never “cost prohibitive.”

They didn’t have the funding, he reminded himself. What they did have was only two months until the first snow. With one last lingering look at the hydroelectric plant, he turned back to his desk and pulled up his email, sending off a quick message to Barret with the site of their next well.

“Come on,” he said to the tiny ball of fluff, scooping it off his lap as he moved the rest of his files to his briefcase. He could finish the rest before he went to bed. “Let’s go home.”

City of Ariel || Permissions & Kinks

Fighting: Reeve can defend himself in a fight, though he has a body guard for a reason. In general, other characters can probably overpower him, but if he spots a chance to run, he'll take it.

Mind control, telepathy: Reeve has no natural defense against any sort of mind control and your character can probably get in his head pretty easily. Just check with me first.

Sex: In his younger days, Reeve went through a bit of a wild phase. As a result, he is relatively sexually experienced, more than one might expect of a giant nerd. That said, as he's aged, his sexuality has changed, and at the canon point I am taking him from, he strongly prefers a romantic or friendly connection to his sexual partners. He may be slow to warm up to the idea of Ariel at first.

Yes: Bondage, toys, forced oral, double penetration, rimming, sensory dep, temperature play, group play, slave play, hard and soft impact, dubcon, sharing partners, size play, manhandling, domination, submission,

Negotiable: Non-con, and anything else not explicitly stated her.

No: Vore, gore, scat, urine/watersports, menstruation, lactation, children/child play, infantalization, pregnancy, lactaion, furry, bestiality.

[Log for 11-12]

In the end, they had compromised -- Reeve kept everyone out of 11-12's way while he went under. As a result, he didn't know what, if anything, his lover had discussed with the projections of 909 and his mother that were trapped in his memories. He hoped it had been healing, but he didn't want to pry into his lover's business.

Back home that night, Reeve made both of them coffee, giving 11-12 some space if he wanted to stay with his thoughts.

[Memespam thread] [Reeve/Oldworth]

[Reeve was in his room, working on his Cait Sith. He had his legs up on the coffee table as he fiddled with the wiring in his cat's back. Since he wasn't expecting visitors, he was dressed down to a button-down shirt and a pair of soft slacks.]

[rl for Reno and 11-12]

[For once, Reeve actually made it back to the condo before 11-12. He'd gotten in touch with Kasumi and now he had Reno (And Harley?) under his care. He wasn't sure how 11-12 was going to react to finding his ex-lover sleeping in their bed, though. Even if he was stuck as a cat.]

[RL with 11-12]

After the house finally released them at dawn, Reeve and 11-12 found themselves back in the condo. The bonecrushing terror of the dark freezer had finally ebbed, but Reeve was still shaking as he pressed a gentle kiss to 11-12's cheek and stumbled toward the bedroom. Hopefully they could still get some rest, despite the sunlight streaming through the open windows.

(no subject)

Reeve worked for several hours after 11-12 had gone to bed, trying to iron out the problems with the hydroelectric dam so that they could move forward on construction before the snow began to fall. As a result, he slept late the next morning, although he hadn't forgotten his promise to take 11-12 out for clothes and to see the ocean.

He finally rose at a little after 9 AM, clothed in pajamas that were a very close match to the set he'd loaned 11-12, and stumbled into the kitchen with eyes only for his coffee pot. He guessed that his houseguest was already awake, but the boy might want to steer clear until he'd been properly caffeinated.

Name: Reeve Tuesti
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII Compilation
History link: http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Reeve_Tuesti is the most complete, although I disagree entirely that it is “strongly implied” that Reeve has children. His parents refer to each other as “Grandmother” and “Grandfather,” which I feel is more of a dialect/translation issue. Neither a wife nor any children is ever mentioned in extended canon, and, in fact, Cait Sith is referred to has his “child” and implied child-substitute.
Age: Compilation establishes Reeve as 35 in FFVII, making him 36 in Advent Children and 38/39 in Dirge of Cerberus. (I tend to stretch his age upward as much as possible, due to canon contradictions. Reeve designed the mako reactors, which are an integral part of Midgar’s structure. In addition, he’s referenced as the “director of City Planning”. Unfortunately, in the original game Midgar is established as a 15 year construction project, which means that Reeve must have designed both the city and the Mako reactors before turning 20... which I find pretty unlikely.)
Canon point: Reeve will be joining his canon-mates just after Advent Children. For him, that means the WRO is frantically trying to build enough housing/generate power for the residents of Edge and taking a lot of heat for that whole children-being-snatched-off-the-streets thing.
Personality: (Copied/Edited from an app to Drama Drama Duck)
Reeve is very mechanically minded, so he tends to be fairly awkward in his social interactions. Tact is a foreign concept to him, as is lying, though he's gotten a little better at both. He tends to blurt things out without realizing they're blunt or hurtful. Other times, he means something sarcastically or as a joke, but it comes out unintentionally harsh. He's a lot more proficient at dealing with animals and inanimate objects, and so he tends to shy away from social interactions. He prefers to communicate in writing, or, if necessary, over the phone, rather than braving face to face interactions, because it gives him more time to consider what he's saying.

Paradoxically, when Reeve does get close to someone, he gets very attached very quickly. Even after his time in ShinRa, he tends to trust too easily. He always expects the best of everyone, which is a double-edged sword: people who respond to his trust generally rise to meet it, which is the reason for much of his success in the WRO. I think it also explains much of his dynamic with Vincent in DOC, a game in which Reeve manages to guilt Vincent into fixing everything ever. On the other hand, this also creates opportunities for people to fall short of his expectations, or take advantage of his giving nature. Certainly his dreams for Midgar were never realized; his Mako reactors were co-opted and turned into weaponry by Scarlet. His trust level also leads him to put himself into situations where he is entirely in another’s hands. Somehow, he spends years in a position where he knows his abilities are being misused, and even lets it escalate past the point where an entire sector of his city has been massacred before finally following his conscience and turning on ShinRa. Obviously, he hasn’t learned, since he pledges his loyalty as completely to Cloud and later to Vincent in DoC, although neither misuses him the way ShinRa did.

On the darker side, when Reeve does crash, he crashes hard. He tends to take responsibility for every negative event to befall anyone, ever. This leads to a lot of guilt and self-recriminations, which manifests as sulks. Sometimes these can go for weeks or even months until someone smacks him out of it. (For instance, during and after the destruction of Sector 7, he is defeated and sullen. These traits reappear after the WRO’s defeat in DoC, though Vincent takes him to task much more promptly.) My headcanon is also that the death of the Cait Siths -- One in FFVII and one in DoC -- effect him very deeply. Cait Sith is clearly established as a sentient being from the very beginning (saying things like “Don’t forget me even if another Cait Sith comes along!” in the original game) and is referred to in Ultimania Omega as Reeve’s child, so I find it very natural that Reeve responds very strongly to the loss of one of them, triggering similar depressive episodes, even if they’re never shown in canon.

Powers/Abilities: Reeve’s only ability is that he’s super-smart. He clearly is some sort of mechanical genius, having designed a city, invented and implemented a brand new form of electricity, and essentially invented AI on his world. He can build a great deal out of very little, and my headcanon is that there’s actually very little he can’t build or do, provided appropriate materials, and that he can preform the amazing even with materials that are very basic or lacking.

According to the Ultimania Omega, Reeve was originally designed as an “Inspire” which is a separate race that can “breathe life” into inanimate objects. (This never made it into actual canon.) I don’t choose to exactly portray that in Reeve (especially since FFVII canon has so constantly been reinvented and retconned) and I prefer to think that Cait Sith is an extension of Reeve’s innate ability with invention and machinery. However, I also interpret it in a way, as I do feel Reeve’s talent is as much a natural ability as it is education.

[RL for Reno]

Reeve knew he should be upset with Reno after the comments the Turk had made, but he couldn't summon more than mild irritation. After all, the Turk had only made things worse with his teasing, but this mess wasn't his fault. And it was true -- Reeve had been in an unconventional relationship that had drawn a great deal of attention.

He waited for the redhead to arrive, flipping idly through a file without really reading. He couldn't focus today, and there was nothing immediate that needed his attention.

[RL for Rufus]

[Things had quieted down since Yuffie and Vincent had put Reeve back in place. Business was continuing at the WRO -- except, of course, for ShinRa business, which remained frozen while Reeve waited for Rufus to start behaving.

For now, he was settled at his desk. A plate of food, mostly forgotten, sat cooling beside him, whereas his coffee mug was almost drained. It was late, and he was working -- after all, there was no reason to rush home now.

[RL for Kaylee]

After speaking to her on the community, Reeve readied Cait Sith and prepared to worldhop himself to Serenity. As requested, he brought himself directly to the engine room to avoid any contact with the crew. And, though Kaylee wouldn't yet recognize what a rare event this was, he was clothed in casual "grub clothes" -- a pair of loose cotton pants and a stained button down, far too worn for business. After all, he was going to be digging around in an engine for the girl.

Once he arrived, he began peering around the large central engine. It was enormous, and his fingers itched to get started -- but not without his expert guide.

[RL for Tseng]

After going to Shanoa's to retrieve the kitten, Reeve brought the tiny creature back to the condo. First things first -- he cleared the study of the other cats, creating one room where the kitten could acclimate to their scents without having to face them. Then he opened the carrier door and put it on the floor, grabbed his laptop, curled up on the couch -- and that was it. When the first tiny paw batted out of the crate, he ignored it utterly. Kitten? What kitten. Not in this room.

RL for Edgeworth and Harry

[Reeve had arranged worldhops for Edgeworth and Harry, and now he was waiting for the two to arrive. From this angle, Seventh Heaven didn't look quite as much like a bar, which was probably for the best. They wanted to make the right impression on Edgeworth, after all.

With Reeve were two small children, both of whom looked about Harry's age. One, the boy, was hanging back as they waited for their guests to arrive, but the girl was shifting impatiently. When would they show up?]
