Well, Tidus is an incarnate spirit. He's like an unsent, but he still exists in Spira because of someone else will. On the contrary, unsents still exist in Spira because of their own will. There's also a huge difference in what we could call "physical integrity". An Unsent will only go into the Farplane if he's willing to do so (or if a summoner performs a sending against its will). An incarnate spirit is very fragile, if the person learns about his condition, he will disappear.

I like that! Incarnate spirit... It has a nice ring to it, instead of just calling them "beckoned" spirits. And physical integrity, too! I was struggling for the longest time how to differentiate the unique processes Unsents go through, especially with the emergence of a new "state of being." You have amazing terminology! :D

Haha, thanks  ;)

Just here to tell you that the next chapter will be released tomorrow (thursday).  :)
But if kk is absent, you'll have to wait, unless someone volunteers to fix it in his place.

Hello !

Actually, I'm done with the translation of the chapter, but I have a doubt about something. From now on, Yuna will converse with Kush but she'll use the polite 'vous'. What do I do ? Since Kush uses this polite 'vous', isn't natural to use it too for Yuna ? Furthermore, I'll have to use it when she'll talk with Ifahnal because he doesn't use this polite 'vous', but Yuna is. It's like a form of respect towards an old person.


On another note, enjoy this recent wonderful FFX piano medley :

Hmmm, well, we don't really have a word like that in English, but there are other ways of denoting respect towards a superior/elder! Using sir/ma'am, speaking in a formal tone... as far as I can think of at the moment, that's all I can think of. D:

Okay, well I will use 'sir' for Ifahnal, furthermore he asks her to call him like that, so that's great.

But Kush is 'younger' than Yuna so I don't know how you'll denote respect towards her. Do your best x)

Actually, the polite 'vous' was used earlier in the novel, when Valm adressed Alb for example, but I decided to use a simple 'you' because I thought it was not necessary. But since we've decided to use this polite 'vous' for Kush's conversations, we need to keep a semblance of coherence if someone uses the polite 'vous' to talk to her, right ? (just for your information, Valm used a simple 'you' when he talked to Kush)

The messaging system on here is weird. xD

Really interesting chapter. I don't understand what's going on at the end, though. Was Tidus turning to pyreflies? Because Yuna had some distant memories of the summoner? Is that why she made him do that, to ground himself or something?

Or... it says she was trying to send her consciousness to the pyreflies to connect with the summoner. Which makes sense, but then why did Tidus have to do all that stuff? O_o

Actually, Tidus is an incarnate spirit, so he can easily turn into pyreflies I think, like an unsent. The pyreflies coming from Kush have certainly caused that. And the novel makes it explicite : "the silhouette of Tidus was blending into the pyreflies."

I don't understand your last question  ???

Anyway, the interesting fact here is when Yuna tells Tidus to stand on his knees, and then when she embraces him. Does this scenery ring a bell to anyone ?  :) Remember the ending of Final Fantasy X-2...  ;)

Oh, okay! Yeah, second question doesn't matter if the first part was true! I just wasn't sure if the novel was saying he was 'fading'/turning to pyreflies, or... what. Interesting...
How does he seriously not notice that happening to him?? Sheesh, Tidus. :P

But, yeah, nice little throwback to Shuyin and Lenne! xD

I thought about two hypotheses: that Tidus's existence has grown fainter due to him being an incarnate spirit, or that he has actually become 'part' of that summoning that was starting to fade.

On a second note, who was the core for Ifarnal to summon the island, and why did he do it? O.o Is it mentioned in the novel?
Besides, why did he murder Tidus? Does it have to be with testing Yuna's ability to beckon him? That the multiple beckonings could weaken the Farplane? I'm so confused. :(

Yes, it is. you just have to wait.  :)

Be careful, I don't know if Ifahnal has really murdered Tidus. I just have some clues. But I can't tell you yet.

:S

I kind of agreed with you, because of the gunpowder thing in the ship and then the bomb falling on his head out of the f*king blue, but if it has something to do with Shuyin, I don't believe they had ever met during the war... Unless...
