To believe in a universe as young as six or seven thousand years old is to extinguish the light from most of the galaxy. Not to mention, the light from all the hundred billion other galaxies in the observable universe.
This is adorable as heck.

Okay, I’ve been meaning to make something like this for the longest time. I feel, in any video game or anime or anything that has ever been created, there has never been a character greater than Zackary Fair. He was a hero in the truest form. He worked tirelessly to reach SOLDIER 1st class, despite being betrayed by his mentors and friends Angeal Hewley and Sephiroth he continued to fight. He braved everything, heart ache, broken spirits, betrayal, overwhelming odds, and the cold sting of death. Yet he never once stopped smiling, not to his last moment. He gave his life for Cloud, gave his dreams and hopes and ambitions to a young infantry man who could easily have just walked away. But even on his death bed he trusted the blonde, he kept faith in the world. After death he was still there, always standing behind Cloud ready with words of encouragement and a knowing smile.
He was sixteen when he killed Angeal. Sixteen. He was 18 the time of the Nibelhiem incident, where he watched one of his last friends be plunged into a mako reactor. His General, a man he fought beside, a close friend of his mentor; he watched the man die after the silver haired man nearly ended his life. He was 23 when he fought for the last time, shielding Cloud and defending his honor as SOLDIER.
After everything, everything, that Shinra did Zack Fair could still see honor in the title SOLDIER. He saw the strength inside the word, he saw truth in the words his mentor had spoken, he saw his entire life be stripped away as he was gunned down by the very company he devoted his life to.
And he was smiling in the end.
So for these reasons Zack Fair will always be my idol. I will strive each day to be like him, to embrace my dreams and protect my honor. I will give my life for my friends and I will keep faith my mentors. I will never stop caring; I will never stop smiling.
I make this promise to myself and to my senpai, First Class SOLDIER Zackary Fair.
