I can think of a simple way SE could rectify the situation.

1) State that the Novel was not cannon!

2) Develop the Audio Drama further.  How about something like this:
...(mind; we are ignoring the Novel)...

2 Years have passed since Tidus came back to Sipra and the Vegnagun incident occurred, and 4 years since the demise of Sin/YuYevon.

This has left a lot of people uncertain, as we saw evidenced in X-2 with the introduction of the new Factions; New Yevon, et al.  However the trauma caused by the Vegnagun incident combined with the fear of uncertainty in a time where these peoples' religion have been ripped away from them has left the majority of Spira scared. 

Some new Factions have arisen in the midst of this; and they have proposed radical action.  To completely seal the Farplane from the world of Spira.  This has caused great anxiety for a huge number of people, but Summoners and former members of Yevon formost. 

The majority of the Spirian population is actually on side with this proposal.  The theory is, once the Farplane is completely closed off, the pyerflyes and spirits will be forever sealed; effectively keeping the "fear of the unknown" exactly that, unknown.  The re-occurrence of deceased memories at the Moonflow and Sin's appearance have only furthered peoples fear of the Farplane.

We know since the events of X the Farplane was "unstable", and during the events of X-2, the "instability" was due to the anger of some unsent and their actions caused by their use of the Farplane and escape into the mortal world. 

The new plan to completely close the Farplane off has Yuna terrified of the reprecussions.  This would mean completely losing touch to all of the benefits of the Farplane, and she fears she would lose some of herself.  As a Summoner, she had first hand experiences with unsent in the form of the Aeons, not to mention Tidus.  She fears that the closure will cost everyone in Spira the loss of their identity.  She fears for the loss of Tidus.

A new Faction, let's call them the "pro-closure" Faction is leading this change.  They are not necessarily EVIL, but maybe a bit sly.  Yuna and Co. might go on an adventure to meet with this new council and discuss options.  On this journy Yuna and Tidus re-establish their relationship, and a theme of "never losing who you WERE" is a very important factor to the story.  We saw in X the moral of "it's not the destination it's the journey", and we saw in X-2 the moral was "stand up for what you believe in/learn to say "no"/ be yourself etc."  Now, in X-3 we can see that both of these journies were just a set up for "knowing who you are and how you became that way". 

There is an opposing faction who claims that the destruction of the Farplane will destroy Spira.  They oppose Yuna and Co and are fought and seen as enemies of the party, while Yuna is still conflicted with her decisions.

The story will climax with Yuna and Co realising that the Farplane is a hinderance to the evolution of Spira, and they will resolve to close it finally.  They jouney to the heart of the Farplane/Guadosalam or wherever the link between the worlds exists with all intentions of destrying the link. 

Only once there, it is reveled (ala X Yunalesca style), that the destruction of the Farplane would destroy Spira etc. etc..  This will also reveal that the "pro closure" Faction was in fact evil and they were hoping to destroy Spira for XYZ reasons.  Purify it, what have you.  They are also responsible for the re-emergence of Sin to perpetuate fear in the people.

This leads to the finale; where Yuna and Co to do exactly the opposite (like Kindgom hearts, opening the door); they release the Farplane from it's confines (Avatar Kora style), and release it into the mortal world.  This is hugely beneficial to the world of Spira and we see it's effects immediatly; Macalania starts to re-grow, the clouds above Gagazette clear, the storm in the Thunder Plains rolls to an end.  It is revealed that Sprira needs the Farplane to be one in the same.  And it is emphasized that you cannot throw your past away; it is always part of you.  (see Deanery's quote from ASoIAF, "If I look back I am lost" - untrue.)  You can only look to your past to see how your future will grow.

Tidus regains his strength.  He and Yuna have fully reconciled.  Pyerflyes explode into the mortal world as beautiful fireworks, everyone cheers etc. etc.  The story concludes on a happy, satisfying note. 


There you have it SE, that is how you can save the story.

Wandering Flame, its so lovely !

I think we should keep in mind that while this is technically cannon, it's not acutally cannon to the English speaking audience (and any not Japanese, I should imagine).  So while it is cannon in the sense that it is part of the story, unless it gets an English release, it would be as if, in the Western world it's not cannon - get what I'm sayin'?

For example I had no idea that FFVII had comic books, so I had no idea they were cannon, while I understood that 7, Advent, Dirge etc were cannon I never knew the comic books were.  Okay, hope I made myself clear and like I said, this is just how I think about the matter.

I always thought Wandering Flame was the most beautiful track.  I also loved Besaid Island's theme in X and Zanarkand's in X2

Hah hah yeah I'm not buying that either.  I hope that doesn't turn out.

I think it's pretty safe to say at the end of X3

Yuna is pushing Tidus away for a "greater purpose'' of possible self sacrifice?
Yuna and Tidus will be reunited
New girl and New boy will develop feelings for one another
All will be well

Whoawhoa that would be frikken sweet.  It reminds me a bit of FFII where for the GBA release when you could play the Soul of Rebirth after the main story where you could use the fallen heroes in a new game.  I always loved that concept, and I could totally see how the Farplane could be used as that sort of thing.  There is so much to it we don't know and understand.  Like in X it's just a place where you can see your loved ones, but in X2 you can actually enter it!?!  Maybe the Farplane is a bridging world between Spira and the "Fiend World"?

Hmm great post.  I think at the end of the day I am very happy that FF X3 is (probably) happening.  I know I will enjoy the game, and I will certainly buy it and play it.  I suppose Noji will have a purpose for all he's done, so I think the best plan is to wait it out and see what happens.  But I am certainly excited to see Spira again.

Those are both awesome ideas!  I'd love to see the farplane explored a bit more and the history of Spira pre Sin.

Hmm.  I think they could have easily created a new baddy from the Fayth who stayed around to keep Tidus for Yuna.  I always wondered at the end of X-2 if they Fayth kept dreaming to keep Tidus alive, that must've meant that other things could be too.  The Fayth could've become corrupted or... something I don't know.  But I just feel like there are a lot of better ways that this could've happened, minus Tidus' head getting blown up.

I'm hoping to see Barali and or Gippal again, they looked pretty promising to me in the last game.

^^ agreed I'd like to see them in the party.  Who else do you think could make it into the party?  Rikku/Paine?  Gippal/Barali?Nooj?  I'm hoping it's a decent mix of old and new.  I'm also hoping for some new costumes for all the characters.  Poor Wakka and Lulu last game ha ha.

Honestly I am so disappointed in how this is turning out.  I am hoping that this novella never gets a Western release and therefore can't be cannon (in our market anyways).  I don't mind the audio drama as much but this is just too much for me.  My heart is broken, Tidus and Yuna's love story is what MADE FFX and to have it just destroyed for the purposes of a cash making scheme...  I am so, so disappointed.

Wow this is a lot of info to take in!

General / Re: Which Final Fantasy is your favourite?

X for sure!

X was the first final fantasy I ever played, and I remember just being so blown away by what I was playing.  It was the first game I ever played with voice acting and I thought it was incredible.

There is also so much nostalgia attached to the game for me.  I remember saving up my pocket money and asking my big sister to walk me to the local game store so I could buy it.  I had to buy it 2nd hand ha ha.   

But saying all of that, the storyline is what really enthralled me.  It was the first game to ever make me actually cry.  I just love it so much, that's why I'm here.  I hope SE can bring a sequel to this game the level it deserves.
