Being sick makes me impatient. (Among other things.)  

If Spira is drowning in its sorrow, I am drowning in my snot. Where does it all keep coming from?

I finally defeated Yunalesca, the Las Vegas Showgirl from Hell, last night. (She sounds an awful lot like Carmilla from Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust ...) By defeating her, I pretty much defeated Maester Mika - I'd been looking forward to fighting the old undead dude, but upon hearing what I had done to Yunalesca, he promptly sent himself. (He was very quick to go. o_O)

They all say that they're dead, but they're effectively alive. If you lose your consciousness and self-awareness, becoming a fiend, then ok - the you that you were is dead. If you are sent to the Farplane, then ok - you're dead. But if you're a collection of spirit who can hold a concrete form that can touch, speak to, and move others - you're not really dead. If I have to fight you three times because you just can't take a hint - you're not really dead. If you can hurt me with physical blows, kiss my characters, and be healed by regular old items - you're not really much of a ghost, either. You're just like me. ::brain fumbles trying to figure out how potions heal Auron and how he can be Zombiefied if he's already dead::

Is Spira so entwined in its cycle of death that life and death have become practically the same thing, for all events and purposes? It's only the "really extraordinary" people who defy the cycle or traditions, for whatever reason.

If Yu Yevon is eternally summoning, then it kind of makes sense why Sin keeps on destroying the cities/towns/villages - it seems that they keep on popping up in the same damn places, all near temples. XP

The last time I was in Luca, I couldn't afford a single Music or Memory Sphere (I think I probably splurged on weapons immediately prior ...), so being able to go back when I actually had a good amount of cash on hand was great fun. I really enjoy the ability to play back the movie sequences ... although I'm not sure it makes up for being unable to fly the airship (does that technicolor thing have a name?) on my own. ._. The map calls being able to input coordinates "exploring" Spira. Bah! Bah, I say. It's just not as fun as trying to land on tiny little islands and fly through mountains.

I was not mentally present at Contemporary Art History this morning. Somewhere during the time we spent discussing the differences between "modern" and "late modern," and deciding what "contemporary" means, my brain just went out for a sandwich. I have a few notes and some weird doodle-thing, but other than that ... I wonder how this bodes for Physiology of Space.

In good news, I made the Concert Choir. ^_^ Though I rehearsed with them that day as an Alto1 and auditioned as a Soprano2 while sounding like a pony with grain up its nose, they put me in as a Soprano1. Apparently, my range is still in there - it just has to be brought back out again.
Current Mood: uneasy, congested

I'm too tired to be posting, so sorry for what's to come...
Be sure to go back to the place you fought Yunalesca, and keep walking up and down the stairs (even though they just lead back the where you came from), as you should get an important item in that room by going up and down the stairs. I don't know if it is the same in the American version (since I missed it the first time, I have to now fight Dark Bahumat to get it >_>;;; Dark Aeons do nothing but get in the way).

IIRC, a lot of the cast of Final Fantasy X worked on VHD: Bloodlust. But I don't recall many things, so I can't be too sure.

I've heard the airship called the "Highwind" (which makes sense, Cid usually = Highwind), but I don't remember very hearing it's name in the actually game. I'm not sure why they removed the world map (and thus where you fly your airship) and FFX-2 doesn't look like it'll bring it back (it's the same as FFX, just with more explosion, 'active link' flashing around and a ship that's easier to see o_O).

I would write in more detail, but now I must collapse onto the floor and sleep for a week. Maybe it's better that I don't go into detail ^^;;; (sorry if you didn't want to know about the secret item thingers X_x)

"...but I don't remember ever hearing it's name in the actual game..."

There, now for the aforementioned collapse.

Yeah, the airship deal irked me too. It just wasn't the same as being able to actually fly around the map. Ah well. The game was awesome enough for me to forgive them for that, though.

Congratulations. You, by the way, have the cutest voice. But I've probably told you that a million times already. =P
