Nojima won't go down without a fight, that's for certain.

Haha, I was going through, wondering why they have a rucksack リュック, then reallised it's Rikku. Makes alot more sense than Yuna travelled around with a rucksack and a pine :P

and
The noisy rucksack stopped making noise,
even compared to the rucksack, she seemed grown up.

How much exposition is given concerning the first chapter?

It gets through it pretty fast. Few paragraphs very vaguely going through the events of the game, as memories that flash through his mind. Then he emerges from the darkness. Goes through the fmv at the end of x-2. Then they go back to the village and decide to throw a party.

Tidus is introduced to Paine, and gets a very brief explanation of the events of X-2, really just that they joined a group and journeyed together. Then they talk about the fact that Tidus hasn't changed in those 2 year.

Im just fixing up the translation now. It's still a bit rough.

Re: the post-reunion bits, with Tidus meeting Paine and stuff... so, then, the events of the novel DO take place only a few days after X-2...? In other words, is it just the beginning of the novel that takes place immediately after the ending of X-2, or the whole book?? O_O

Im kinda confused. Nojima describes the airship at the end of X-2 as purple. FFX's one is purple. X-2's is red...

Was he involved in X-2?

According to FFWiki, he was one of the writers for X-2 alongside Daisuke Watanabe.

... Maybe he's colour-blind.  :P

Wanna know stuff? Ask me. "I know everything."

I somehow can't answer? "... I'm just a kid."

Or maybe he's pretending X-2 doesn't exist :P

Watched the Good Ending, the Celsius is purplish from a distance. Also, hi.

Or maybe he's pretending X-2 doesn't exist :P

And that's my working theory.

Oh hey, I saw you on GameFAQs. Did you also post that story on Fanfiction.net?

Didnt the audio thing say they had a year together though? Unless there still was that year after the novella.

Don't know if this sounds right.

「ユウナの話によると、またスピラを救ったその褒美として、折り子があんたを返してくれるって言ったとか言わないとか」
“According to Yuna, as a reward for saving Spira, she was told they would return their child.”

「つまり、俺が戻って来られたのは祈り子のおかげか」
“You mean, the fact that I’m back is thanks to a child of the Faith?”

「頑張ったユウナんでしょ!」
“Yuna did her best!”

This bit is kinda confusing, child? Did you get that from 折り子 (fayth)?
