On New Year's Eve I forgot to mention that Best Friend/Neighbor was sleeping over :D She rang our doorbell, and I greeted her with "YOOO FINNA RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH US?" To which she answered "Proba-OMG I SHOULD ASK MOM IF I CAN SLEEP OVER."
Her mom said yes. Which, frankly, I cannot believe considering the occasion >__> But hosnap it was funzies. We ate food and rang in the new year and made funny videos where my sister was being hilarious and made ourselves so tired that we conked out.
You know what? This entire vacation, I've barely been on AIM or MSN. I must rectify this before I have to go back to school.
Ugh, the fourth, it looms.
Actually, I don't have to go to school until the fifth. Yay!
Also, I can't believe I didn't find this site
earlier. Lots of good stuff. Like hee, I was right! Genesis and Angeal are
older than Sephiroth-- which makes sense, since G is Seph's "prototype." Genesis is older than Angeal, used the mako mine from the final dungeon of CC as a playground, and when they broke the VR Training Room in that one cutscene, the amount of money required to fix it is equal to "what Zack would receive for 24 pay periods."
I find this hilarious.
The Dissidia section states that in order to have retained your memories of past cycles, you have to have been alive at the end of the conflict. Since the heroes lost and Sephiroth killed himself, they didn't remember what happened in the last cycle.
And on Sephiroth again, it states that Sephiroth's goal was probably the death of Chaos, so that he and the others could return to their original worlds-- free to control his own destiny. So he led Cloud to his crystal, and while he indirectly tells Golbez that he knows Golbez is really working for Cosmos ("Do you miss the light?"
), he doesn't stop him or actually tell anyone.
Of course, they also say that this is so Sephiroth can go back to Gaia and take over the world, and that the game is actually a completely canon installment of the FF series. Can't have it all.
