Whee! I'm back in America! It's good to be home. :D

I think I'm the only one here who actually liked the novella. It's not like I expected kittens and rainbows come out of it, you know.

I actually like the novella, too. Sure, it's fanfiction quality, and I've read better fanfiction, but for what it's worth as canon, it's pretty neat. And I think a lot of things can be justified (not everything) by a little bit of imagination. I think my biggest pet peeve with the novel is the freakin rules that Kush and Ifharnal go by. I mean, sending Tidus back to the real Besaid in search of Bria? Asking Yuna to go here and there? Or is it the other way around? I'm so confused. Why did they have to be so roundabout? Otherwise, I like it. Plus, I enjoy seeing the realistic side of Tidus/Yuna romance. It helps define the timeline of how long they continued dating post-FFX-2. I think by 8 months, when the Spiran Council formed indefinitely after casting aside Yevon (which is wise), Yuna picked up from the ashes to hide the truth. Four months is enough time for 'that' incident with the Yevoners to pass, whatever that was (Yevoners becoming overzealous with Beckoning?), for Yevoner hunters to arise, and for Senders and their assistants to make themselves official. There must be a new system in this government, and I'm curious to see that the writer chose to make Baralai the essential Maester leader of the world, being second to the High Summoner in importance.

So, yeah. In a nutshell, the audio drama, novel, and Last Mission really help establish that one year period that leads up to FFX-3.
Lost in the winds of change~

Consider me a wandering 'Maechen' of FFX/X-2 lore.
