Ok. Here's my longwinded thoughts about FFX:
Everything that happened in both FFX & FFX2 happened. Totally. Up through FFX2's perfect ending.
Then, the world was destroyed. For whatever reason, and it honestly doesn't have to be explained, Tidus and Wakka fell through to Destiny Islands before the rest fell to Traverse Town. It could be that they were the youngest at heart, or that because they landed in Destiny Islands they ended up kids by default and lost their memories. The rest didn't, so obviously wacky fun will ensue there.
When the rest of the cast falls to TT, they retain their memories, as well as their age. I think it's something about DI that really clings to the children, as opposed to TT which seems to be more adults; at least in the first game. So Lulu, Paine, Rikku (yes, I know, loose definition), Gippal and LeBlanc all end up there.
Now, the dead people. We all know that in Spira, death is an INCREDIBLY loose term. I think that since the farplane is actually a physical place in Spira, the strongest souls survived, just as they did in Summoning Stones or as in the cases of Sora, Riku and Kairi in the first game. So Auron and Jecht just show up alive again.
Any thoughts? Most likely, I missed stuff. But I think that's a good place to start.
Okay, I've never played FFX-2, as it doesn't exist in Trudyverse, but I've seen all of the game clips, and isn't there a NOT-SO-PERFECT ending, where the world goes explodey? Maybe the world just went EXPLODE-y at the end? 8D
Personally, I like the idea of Wakka and Tidus being reincarnated. *nods sagely* But everything you said makes sense, and I like it. <3
I've never played the DEATH DOOM ending, so I don't know. I suppose if Vegnagun wasn't as EASY AS FUCK to beat, then yeah, the world could go explodey. We could just do that! Except, the Heartless wouldn't have anything to do with it at that point, and so we'd kind of be... um... stuck.
Plus, some of the FFX kids want to be older. like, three years older. *KOFFS AT fairypark
* So, three years after all that, the Heartless invade the first time, but Wakka and Tidus don't come back after the Sora closes the door? Because they were reincarnated on DI?
Does that make sense?
I just can't see Gippal as 18.
Aaaah! Okay. I see what you're saying now. *nods sagely*
Makes sense to me. *thumbs up*
YAY! I UNDERSTAND! HUZZAH!
...Oh wait. Okay.. let's see now. Three years of yay!Happy, then Heartless come first time, and everyone goes into limbo but Tidus and Wakka go to DI? Then Sora closes the door, and instead of going back to their proper time(Except in Tidus's case...because, well he doesn't EXIST.), they go to DI again? Then... Heartless invade again? I think? I'm fuzzy on that part.
Hrmph. On a random note, for the Grand-High Poobah of Evil Death Mechs, Vegnagun was
a big ol' wimp.
And for the record, I'm fine with it for Big Blue.
The better ending is the Sad Ending where Yuna's talking to his ghost. >D
I'm a sucker for unhappy endings.
Man, you're just terrible. If FFX-2 existed in Trudyverse, I'd make someone play it for me to that point just so I could watch that movie. Apparently, I don't have that clip. SOB SOB SOB.
So basically i was right to give Tidus an identity crisis?
The idea sounds cool and i kindof had something like this in mind.
But the point is: When Tidus and Wakka get to traverse town, are they till kids or adults?
How about giving them a bout of memory loss so they do not recognise anyone from DI or FFX. Tidus only remembers his father, well because it is his father, and Wakka, because Wakka is in the same state as him. The other characters just disappeared from their memories till unlocked later on by somethingsomeonesomewhere.
Ok, I'm sorry I wasn't clearer about this, but no it wasn't really right.
Tidus has no
memory of Spira. Full stop. After Spira was absorbed by the Heartless, he and Wakka were reborn in Destiny Islands. He does not
exist, effectively outside his KH plot, ok? He doesn't know his father, Yuna, anyone. His identity is only in KH at this point, even though the others know he sure looks like a young Tidus.
I am, or going to be (we're still working that part out) going to be the Wakka player. So, presumably, I ignore ALL of FFX/FFX-2. Works for me. Given that I didn't really play FFX anyhow. FFX-2, yes, FFX, no.
And, erm, I can't go on AIM safely. In school.
Still a little confused because I have to think of the Shuin/Lenne stuff. XD; What happened to them? They follow the rest of the FFX-2 crew?
Basically, they follow along with Auron and Jecht. They were too strong to 'die' with the world, even though they were technically dead. Since their souls were on the Farplane, they were strong enough to survive the Heartless.
No, Lulu will be sans demon baby and Wakka, really.
