The Maiden Who Travels the Planet
The Maiden Who Travels the Planet, or Hoshi wo Meguru Otome, is a Japanese-language novella in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII depicting Aerith Gainsborough's travels through the Lifestream after her death.
While the novella was written by Benny Matsuyama under the supervision of Square Enix, it is not considered canon within the Compilation.
While in the Lifestream, Aerith meets several characters that have also passed on, including Zack Fair. She begins to realize Sephiroth's darker intentions, and how his presence negatively effects the Lifestream. Aerith later guides Tifa to Cloud's subconscious after their fall into the Lifestream.
