Snuggle in the saddle with my new mare, Velvet! She has a snowy nose from playing in the snow during our ride lol!
This song has a special place in my heart always.
I normally don’t really care for a video game’s soundtrack. To Zanarkand is too beautiful to pass up.
Alrite, you wanna talk about why Final Fantasy X’s original ending was perfect?
Yuna, like almost every other character in the game, grew up in a world in which destruction of all things, life, civilisation and hope, was unavoidable. When Yuna was seven her father died to briefly protect the land of Spira, she was exposed to ecstatic rejoicement and celebrations all around her at the same time as experiencing the agonising natural grief of losing a parent. She learned that although in this world loss and death are unavoidable, and seem to be at every turn, the fight against something unstoppable means something, that even in such tragedy there can be hope and beauty.
So, her decision to become a summoner was natural, because she realized that if she just set herself on the path to death, which she had seen all around her since she was born, she could create happiness, she could create hope, and most importantly, she wouldn’t have to see those around her die. Her mentality was that if she could give everything willingly, her life and future, it would never be taken away from her by this cruel world and she would never have to watch those around her disappear.
But in the end the girl who was willing to give everything for those she loved, just so she would never have to bear the pain of loss again, is unable to protect her heart as she always believed she would. She is spared life, and watches as once again she is subject to a loved one being torn away from her. It wasn’t supposed to be like this, she was so sure she would never have to feel this again.
That is why Yuna is a tragic figure even though she survives, that is why we should all pretend X-2 does not exist.
I’m sorry but I just can’t agree with this, therefore no, I will not pretend that X-2 does not exist. I believe that after all Yuna has done for the people of Spira, sacrificing someone she loves to rid Spira of Sin forever, etc… she deserves some sort of life afterward. I think that the life she lives in X-2, the friends she’s made, the heroism that shines through in Yuna should be well received and appreciated, not ignored and tossed aside. She saves Spira twice, and yes she is a tragic character. Not only did she lose her parents because of Sin, but she also lost the one she fell in love with. It’s your choice at the end of X-2 to decide if you want Yuna to continue living on as a tragic character or if you want to bring back Tidus to her because she deserves happiness just as much as the next person. So while you are entitled to your own views and opinion, great for you, but no, we’re all not going to pretend X-2 does not exist because we all have our own opinions and some of us appreciate what X-2 offered.
