Aspilanti84 analyzed the story and characters of Final Fantasy IX. Now they devote a separate thread to its “love story”. OK, I’ll bite.
It was kinda like John Adams in between George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, you know?
No, I don’t.
Not that great, kinda forgettable, but you remember him because he’s there and you really can’t ignore him.
Well, then wouldn’t Final Fantasy VIII be like John Adams? Seems like Final Fantasy VII’s George Washington and Final Fantasy IX’s Thomas Jefferson? Ah, I thought about it literally. I must be going crazy.
You could kinda say that about the game in general, but the love story is just like a fairy tale (read: not organic). It never really grew, except for when it did…and then it grew to be tiring. I didn’t see any real chemistry between Zidane and Garnet, just a couple of kids reacting to each other because the story says they should. The emotions they shared were for the most part actually shallow.
Not organic? I guess it has artificial GMOs included. Oh, “grew” as in developed. Yeah…
I saw some real chemistry between Zidane and Garnet, and it made sense considering who they were as characters. Shallow emotions? Not as shallow as in Final Fantasy VIII, but not as in-depth as Final Fantasy X.
But for those times when the emotions were extreme…they came out of nowhere.
“Dagger… Are you all cozy on your throne already!? No! No, no, no! I can’t start my day without Dagger! Her smile! Her voice! Her voice is like a beautiful song… And her song makes me soar high into the sky! But now…”
Yeah but this was great to read! *“I can’t start mah day without some dagger in tha mornin’!”
I hate to say it, but Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber did it better. And if Bieber was blonde, they’d be stand-ins for both Zidane and Garnet. I think that you know that they each look like them. Both are kinda obnoxious too, and bland, so I’d say a perfect fit for both.
Hahaha! Selena Gomez does look kinda like Princess Garnet, but less so as she starts to get older. Justin Bieber doesn’t look like Zidane at all. I’m sure many people are thankful for it. I’m thankful they haven’t made a movie casting the singer as the thief.
But this is just my opinion. What do you think of the love story in IX?
Like Aspilanti84 actually cares what you think.
