[size11 I finished it. Gods, did it hurt. I didn't cry, but ... It still hurt. I still wanted to cry during the last few chapters. My heart still aches. I'm going to go back and finish everything, of course but .. I'll never look at it all the same way. Even when I go back to the past, where everything is happy and nice, it still just won't be the same. I'll still have memories of where it all went bad, and it's hard to forget about all of that. Even when I go back to the past, I'm still constantly reminded that nothing is happy and fun anymore. It's just sad. I'll still have fun with the game, but I don't view it in the same, silly light that I once did. I don't think I ever will view it that way again.
... How sad it has me feeling, that's how I know it's a good game. I grew attached to the characters, and now my heart just hurts from everything that happened. People can criticize it all they want, [i because it isn't VII,] but it was still a great game. I loved it. It made me [i feel], which ultimately ... I feel is the biggest goal of any game, or story. Not everyone is going to love it but I do. The ten year wait was worth it. Sure, it has it's issues, but they did so many things right. Just ... ugh. I don't know if I'll ever be over the ending.
[size11 My heart aches. That's all I can really say. My heart just aches. I can't cry, of course, but damn do I want to. I don't even have the words to explain how much my heart aches right now.

[size11 Taking a break from playing just to say HOLY HELL DO I LOVE THIS SCENE
EVERY SECOND OF IT
she's polite and thankful when she had to be
BAM, GET THE FUCK OUTTA MY FACE
she was obviously not scared of their guns, and dammit that just makes me squee inside. >-<
she got me over here like, "DAYUM THIS GIRL IS A BADASS"
I mean, I knew that already, but to see it for myself ;o
be still, my heart ♡
[size11 this is a bit less final fantasy related, but still related.
I've been thinking about songs Luna would like or relate to.
I haven't thought too much about it, but I've decided some.
I really think she'd like Aurora. I don't think she'd relate to all of them, but I still think she'd like the way it sounds. The song I'm iffiest on is I Went to Far. I don't think she'd relate to it at all. She gladly sacrificed herself and happily loved Noctis. So she wouldn't feel bitter at all, like the song comes across. But I still feel like she'd like it...
I also went with Bijou, just because Bijou sounds so pleasant.
I dunno if anyone really pays attention to this thread lol, but I'm going to leave the songs here. In case anyone gets curious.

[size11 So I feel like what Square did with Luna is the same bs they pulled with Serah.
"OH LET'S MAKE A CHARACTER THAT GREATLY AFFECTS THE ENTIRE STORY OF THE GAME BUT BARELY MAKES AN APPEARANCE IN SAID GAME."
I mean ;; 100% of what happened in XIII, happened because Serah was a l'cie, and basically gave riddles instead of straight answers.
So, majority of the cast went running around cocoon trying to figure out what the hell Serah meant, all whilst fighting Barthandelus and crew without really knowing why.
So ... Luna plays such a similar role. She goes around basically praying to the Six so that Noctis can basically gain their favor so he can summon them and use their power. But, at least for me, I have yet to see her in game. So, her role reminds me so much of Serah's. She's a "main protagonist," and while she does actively help develop the story, she's not really seen. Until the very end, from what I've heard... Or close to the end.
I was never a huge huge fan of Serah, but it irks me that they're basically using Lunafreya the same way they used Serah. Keeping this in mind, it makes me wonder if they'd bring Luna back for the second game. They did it for XIII-2 for Serah, so it just makes me wonder. and in X-2, we got to play as Yuna instead of Tidus, so it just makes me wonder. At the same time, I'm kind of hoping that they don't, because it'd be pretty cliche of them to do it, since it's something they've done before.
Edit: also, it's been pointed out to me that Ramuh's staff in XV resembles Ixion. SQUEE
I fricking love Ixion ... Ixion is my favorite summon besides Shiva... so I'm glad they found a way to include Ixion in the new game ♡ beautiful lightning horse ... ♡♡♡

[size11 the more I think about it, the more Noctis and Luna remind me of Tidus and Yuna. I'm not sure how many similarities there really are ... But the most obvious one to me is that Tidus sacrificed himself for Yuna, and for the sake of Spira. Much like how Luna sacrificed herself for Noctis.
It makes me wonder, if when they make a second game for XV, if they even do at all, will it be like X-2 was? I mean ... X-2 was very different from the first, but it still aligned with the story from the first. The main point of the second game was Yuna was looking for Tidus, because she thought he may have still been alive. That wasn't the case but ... It still had a happy ending.
I kind of hope the second game of XV has a happy ending too, for Luna and Noct. I honestly doubt it though, because they decided to fuck with the happy ending of X. Because they "couldn't stand to have happy endings." I wish that wasn't the truth, but it is.
Instead of leaving things where they were, they decided to fuck up Yuna and Tidus' relationships with a novel and a stupid audio story. I'm still horribly mad over it ... Like hell. They were the first Final Fantasy couple to get a truly happy ending ... And Square just had to go and fuck it all up.
Honestly ... How could they break up these two cuties ?? It's not like they're making another Final Fantasy X game ... They just broke them up for the sake of unhappiness, and dangit it makes me mad.
Yuna risked her life just to find Tidus. She risked her life, traveled for so long, and did so much just to bring him back ... After she got rid of Sin. Then damn Square was just like, "Tidus and Yuna are split up and Sin is back. Well, hope you guys like this new ending ¯_(ツ)_/¯"
IT JUST MAKES ME SO MAD
she went to the ends of Spira and basically got Tidus back because of how much she loves him
Like ... She learned how to become strong and rely on others a lot less in order to save Tidus so she can be with him
The whimpy white mage girl became a strong and independent woman so she could save her man ;o
and then Square took all of that away from her. They reversed all of the character development with their stupid novel and audio story ... It's such bullshit and I don't think I'll ever be over it. I mean, I haven't since the HD remake came out on the PS3 ...
I s2g if they pull the same bullshit with Noct and Luna, more than they already have... I will be even angrier. Might even boycott Square, which is saying a lot. >-> I love so many of their games ... Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Drakengard ... Square has made so many games that hold a place in my heart, but if they keep screwing with my heart like they have the past several years, I'm going to be so angry. They've already ruined one of my favorite stories, even though I try to pretend it never happened. If they keep doing it .... It's just going to be so disappointing.

[size11 finishing this chapter hurt my heart. super badly. Hearing Noctis on the verge of tears ... It made me sad. I just wanted to hug him, even though it wouldn't fix anything. The pain in his voice was so evident and clear. I knew what was going to happen, but I never thought it would be so [i painful] when it did. The tone of this game has shifted so quickly ... But I'm still enjoying every second of it. The characters, the areas, everything about it. It has me excited and happy still. I'm excited for all of the summons to be shown, although that isn't what they're called in this game.
I don't know, I'm just excited, despite how upsetting the end of this chapter was. ]]

also, I really need to play Type-0. I own it, but I haven't really played it.
More on Type-0, and the XV demo later.

[size11 me, being the dork I am ...
I can't help but think that the area in the background looks like Ul'dah. I know it isn't, I mean, it [i can't] be. But it looks very similar. I kind of wish I could see more of the area, so I could see if there are more similarities with Ul'dah, or if it actually looks different.
I'm just so curious about so many things still. I wanna know more, but I want to avoid spoilers. I want to watch the movie, and finish Brotherhood. I know I can watch Brotherhood without fear of spoiler, but I'm still not sure about the movie. I'll have to ask my friend, because I know she bought the limited edition, which has both the game and the movie ...
I'm still feeling the hype, even though I'm trying not to. I guess it was dumb, to think that I wouldn't. I mean, I've been waiting since they first announced the game. Why wouldn't I be excited?
I may go back and play through the demos. Give me some practice before I get the game tomorrow. Also gotta check on my chocobo in ffxiv. See if my chocobo's feathers turned white ~
[size11 FINALLY got the last crop that I needed for my Chocobo, to change its color ~
I'm actually pretty excited. Ever since Lightning Returns, I've loved white chocobos, and I've been wanting to get a white chocobo for a while in ffxiv ;-;
it's such a pain though, because you either have to own a house/plot of land, or buy an apartment, which isn't exactly cheap in that game
and then you have to buy the seeds, which takes a lot of grinding the marks/bounties in order to get enough allied seals to buy the seeds >-<
it was a pain, but well worth it, because I've been wanting a white chocobo since I started playing ffxiv.
although, speaking of lightning returns ... I probably ought to restart it. I messed up on one of the side quests, so I'd like to redo it.
but restarting means losing my precious white chocobo that I worked so hard to nurse back to health Q-Q
ah well ... I'll have to restart it eventually, if I want to save Serah / unlock everything.
Man ... final fantasy games are so tedious sometimes.
Although, I think more than anything, I miss playing ffx. It's still my favorite, and as excited as I may be for ffxv
ffx will always be my favorite.
[size11 I just did the Odin fight on FFXIV and holyfuckingshit it's hard and intense.
[http://i.imgur.com/oQhGPWw.jpg [size11 this]] is a snapshot of after the battle
that is MAYBE a quarter of the people that I saw there
There were so many people there
it was damn near impossible to see Odin
hell, I could barely even see people's names there were so freaking many
but holy hell, was it a fun fight
I don't even care that we lost, it was soooo much fun, and now I'm just like, "When's Odin coming back Q-Q"
Also, he killed me twice lol
and probs everyone else died at least once too
ughhhh it's so fun and now all I wanna do is look up stuff about Odin Q-Q]
[size11 I find it annoying that people on tumblr keep tagging Lunafreya as Stella
Yes, they may look somewhat similar, but they are NOT the same person
Quite honestly, I prefer Luna's design over Stella's
Luna's is much more refined and cleaned up than Stella's
From the dresses they wear, to their hair, to their facial features
you can just see how far technology has come since then
;; in other news, I'm onto some new potential research. I found some potential "leaks" from back when the game was still XIII - Versus
[https://www.reddit.com/r/FFXV/comments/5b2nme/new_interesting_leak_about_versus_xiii/ [size11 here it is]]
I already read it, but I'll still have to dig into it deeper
Perhaps later, when I feel less shitty
also, I found [http://68.media.tumblr.com/3dc097cd193afac82c077e5aa8af0879/tumblr_nzqxum02TI1shoih8o1_1280.jpg [size11 this]] funny]
[size11 So, after doing the research, I found out that a Fleuret is actually the foil or knob that Fencers put on the end of their blade
I also found out that Fleuret is French for blossom?
If that is the case, it's not as weird that they kept the name for Lunafreya
Still, I get the feeling that they chose the name because Stella wielded a rapier, and a fencing blade looks very similar to a rapier
at least, it does to me
I also believe that rapiers were used in fencing, back in the olden days?
I've seen similar fighting styles between fencers and video game characters that use rapiers, so I feel that this is the case ....
so I'm wrapping up this inquiry, at least for now.
until my next inquiry ...
