| Sazh FTW!

I'm totally playing thru FF13 again. I'm already up to chapter 11 (no, not bankruptcy) because it's THAT AWESOME. Also, it goes pretty fast, not like FFIX that you can stretch out for months. It's because you have to get to the next chapter in order to unlock the next level-ups and the boss monsters are easy.|
Lightning is just so cool. Did you notice the first time you see her smile it's at Hope? I think in general she only smiles at him. I wonder if he's going to get a weird crush on her like Anakin and Padme. She's very cool, tho, you couldn't blame him if he did. "What do we do now!" "Watch & learn."
Did you see Hope have a cute scene with Vanille up on Yaschas Massif? Poor guy, she was his best chance at a girlfriend in jr. high and she had to go and save Cocoon. The first time I played thru, he was on my nerves, but he gets better thru events in the game so he might have the most intriguing character development. Also? He has the cutest chocobo idle.
Sazh might be my favorite character! He's very cool, and yet he's got real life going on. And he may not always maintain his smile but he always keeps his cool. And since he IS able to smile even tho a bunch of bad stuff happened to him, that means he's inherently enjoying life, and that makes him awesome. ALSO, THERE IS A CHICOBO IN HIS AFRO. HOW CAN THAT BE ANYTHING BUT GREATNESS.
I still can't figure out why Serah likes Snow to begin with, unless she's real stupid and doesn't notice that he's all talk like Vanille said. Yeah I know, by the end he's living up to what he says, but at the beginning? Like, when she said yes? Yeahno. Every time Snow gets punched in the face, I laugh, and when he goes "it's all my fault!" i go "YES IT IS" ;D Hrm, wait, Serah went into the vestige cuz she felt like it. So yeah, I'm guessing she's a few legos short of a pirate ship. I still totally understand Lightning wanting to save her, I'd want to save my sister, too, even tho she's also kindof a nutball.
Maybe Fang is my favorite character! She's such a badass, in a natural way. Not in a "I had to be tough to survive my 13 brothers and my dad beating me!" kind of manipulated way. She also has that awesome conversation with Lightning after Lightning punches her in the face. That is one of my favorite conversations in the whole game. Did you see the scene with her & Sazh in Chocobo Lagoon? Actually I think Sazh gets the points for that one, he takes responsibility for his part in the whole thing.
Is it just me, or is Vanille kinda... made of jail-bait? She's a good character and all, but... the voice acting, and some of the things they have her animated doing, seems ... pornish. Like the powers that be are saying "HERE'S A CHARACTER YOU CAN MAKE NAUGHTY DOUJINSHI OF!" I dunno. She's really an awesome character, and so cute, and she has an awesome color of hair, and the Death spell, but....
That kinda brings up a subject! This game has nearly no really good nearly canon pairings, but I kinda think that's awesome. Cuz I go thru the game like "ooh maybe THAT GUY is her future boyfriend!" I kinda think Fang and Lightning but it's not like, OMG SO CANON! I mean, you have to work to justify any pairing that isn't Snow & Serah, who are boring. I guess some guys want a girl like that, small and vulnerable and willing to make him a sandwich. Fuckers ¬¬ But, then again, it must be true that some women want to be small and vulnerable and make their man a sandwich. What's wrong with you!!
But seriously, are there good pairings? I adore these characters so much, I want them to have really good epilogues! I like how they told us NOTHING of what happens next when you get to the end of the game. that's just awesome. It makes me make up a "Advent Children" type sequel in my brain. Too bad their villain isn't as cool as Sephy. Lightning would be awesome to have in Dissidia but Dysley would be totally lame. Not that they're in Dissidia, but you know, if they were. You know you wanna see Lightning vs. Cloud.
I have to go to bed now, but just in case you forgot, FFXIII is awesome!!
