Now in easy-to-read bulleted form!
-To steal a phrase from F_W, Squall's personality change iz pastede on yay. Seriously, he suddenly switches from 'Rinoa is kinda nice, but mostly just annoying' to 'OMG RINOA!!!1!'
-Esthar kind of sucks. I've probably just been spoiled horribly by Midgar (which I think you all know by now I love), but hell, even Zeal was cooler than Esthar.
-On the other hand, Laguna is lots of love. He's like Zack, but with more than ten lines in the whole game!

And I went and saw 'Take The Lead' with Grace and Anthony, which was surprisingly good, and makes me wish I could actually remember stuff from Dance last year. Particularly as I still think Ada + Leon + tango = win.

And kidavi, saw the post. Will write up up a reply tomorrow morning, hopefully. Right now I think I'm gonna crash though, before I cough up a lung or something. Ugh.

Senior project presentations were this morning - went pretty well, actually. I discovered that it's the anticipation that makes me nervous. I came out of the bathroom after getting the wig on and stuff, and Mr. Menard basically grabbed me and threw me up in front of a room full of juniors. Bit of awkward-ness here and there, mostly because I got the room of non-geeks (Seriously, my school is the nerdiest place ever, and none of them had played FF7), but it all went of well. Yes, I have photos, I'll post them later. Unfortunately, my body has decided that now is a good time to catch a horrible cough and sore throat, so mostly all I want to do is sleep and play FF8, which I've realized is the video game equivalent of a Mercedes Lackey novel - easy reading, a bit contrived and 'WTF?' in the plot department, but ultimately some nice light fun. Which explains why I've sunk twenty-five hours into it in less than a week.

So, having played through disc 2, I've now hit the point where I've been advised to stop and make up my own ending, because what little plot coherency the game has totally falls apart at that point. So...

Rinoa finally admits that she's only been hounding Squall to hide her deep and undying love for Selphie. They buy and re-open Raine's bar and live in lesbian bliss. Quistis takes over the orphanage, because she likes being Everybody's Mom, and earns a reputation for being kind but firm. Irvine becomes a stripper in Deling City (look, he's got man-whore written all over him, okay?). After becoming a world-class fighting champion, Zell decides that it isn't the life for him, and uses his prize money to buy a boat and become a world-class fisherman instead. Squall buys a big house in the middle of nowhere with lots of cats, and enjoys not having people yelling at him to get things done. He visits Quistis and sometimes teaches special classes at Balamb Garden (which Cid and Edea fix after it's unfortunate collision with Galbadia Garden) when life in the middle of nowhere gets a little too boring. And everyone lives happily ever after, or at least tries to, the end.

EDIT:
Jo: What about Seifer?
Me: I...don't know. I tend not to pay very much attention to him. He hangs around the Garden worshipping the ground Edea walks on some more?
Me: And possibly has hot gay sex with Squall when they can get all the cats out of the bedroom.

Irvine: It's okay, we all know you're socially inept, Squall!
Squall: ...Remind me to kill you later.

Cid: Everyone, Squall is your new leader!
Squall: ...Noooooo *sob*

Squall finally grew a personality, and I have to say, I'm really liking it so far. Bit like Asher, although he actually thinks things through. And Nocturne came today, so there will probably be ramblings on that interspersed with the FF8, although I think I'm still at the 'Wha...?' stage of Nocturne-plot.

And I decided last night that the Sprawl would make a great RP setting, and then spent half of my shift at work (I got called in the middle of breakfast by a co-worker who was sick, ugh) working out various details of said RP in my head, despite the fact that it is not actually going to happen. And I totally need a job I don't completely hate. Whiny loud small children argh.

(Edited as I play, to avoid spamming you all)

Everyone: Squall! Do something!
Squall: ...I hate you all so very, very much.

He's so harassed. Like Pilot in Farscape.

And...it flies? What?

EDIT: Squall has trust issues, yaaay! And Rinoa is annoying. I know, she means well, but...hasn't she ever heard of knocking? If I was Squall, I'd have been all 'ARGH GET OUT OF MY ROOM I'M SLEEPING.'

So, instead of playing one of the many other games I've got half finished at the moment, I got really bored yesterday, and decided to pick up FF8, which I hadn't touched in months. And...I actually managed to get somewhere. And become somewhat emotionally involved in the game, even if said involvement is mostly mocking/yelling at the characters. I don't pretend to understand the plot, really. But yeah, kinda sucks to be Squall - he gets stuck dealing with all the idiots, it seems. His face-in-hands 'Oh god why me' moment made me totally crack up. And Irvine is officially the Gay Cowboy, because Brokeback Mountain jokes will never get old. Ever.

I also realized this morning that the one character I RP the most is one of the ones who doesn't worm his way into the back of my head and pick up backstory and strange quirks. This is probably because he has canon backstory, and I actually have a consistent partner-in-crime, unlike all of my other endeavors (Touya to Jesse's Yuki. They are all domestic and almost painfully sweet. Mmmfluff).

And apparently I'm not totally screwed on my senior project - had my last meeting with my advisor, who's notorious for being a hardass about these projects, and he was impressed - the phrase 'Oh, wow...' was used a lot, along with 'I'm proud of you' and 'your logbook is incredibly detailed'. No, I don't know how it happened either.

More to come later, including another Isaac/Raphael conversation, that Ada/Leon fic I've been talking about for weeks now, and possibly strange Asher introspection. And photos. But not right now, because I am really weirdly tired this week.
