- That is interesting, I never thought of this idea for the travellers to leave their names down on the stones in Ronso village.
I am a bit confused on why Auron didn't leave his name down though.. maybe I just didn't catch it.
[sits down and continue to wait for the next chapter in anticipation]
Author's responseAuron said "That is why" when Rikku started going "tink... tink...tink...." with her chisel. I was trying to suggest that Jecht started carving both their names when Auron couldn't be bothered, and that Auron had gotten fed up with the noise and stopped him.
- If you get two of the same review, it's because the first one seems as though it didn't appear. So this is my second try.
I really like the idea of Anima as a final aeon...it makes so much sense, I wonder if Square meant to write into the plot or if I just missed it.
You describe the Ronso village so vividly that I wish it was included in the game.
Even the graffiti is telling, eh?
I am wondering if you are setting something up, putting Lulu in the hot-spring.
Author's responseI think I'll respond to the Seymour question on LJ. And yep, Lulu's been due for a good hot soak in this pool since... oh, before I decided for certain I was going to do the mind control sequence. I had this in mind before I ever bought X-2. :)
- I like the way you observe that the Ronso's resistance to Yuna's pilgrimage seems like so much more of a betrayal because of Kimahri's loyalty and steadfastness. I think that is a very accurate estimation of why it is so unexpected.
I really enjoy the idea of the natural cave as the Ronso guest house and the concept of history portrayed in the many names carved into its walls.
I like the idea of a Final Aeon being less powerful when it's not used against Sin, that seems like an interesting explanation for how Seymour can be using his Final Aeon for ordinary fiends without destroying himself.
I also enjoy the thought that Kimahri helps Lulu to find the hot spring, since he seems able to tell she needs a bit of a break from the rigours of the pilgrimage.
This was an interesting chapter for being calm and a break in the heated action. I think it works well that way.
