    The fact that when Seifer is believed to be executed Squall thinks ‘Seifer... you’ve become just a memory.’ always gets me thinking. If something were to happen to anyone in FF8, if someone were to die, they’d become just a memory to everyone else. And GFs make you lose memories.

    The idea that if anything happened to anyone, eventually they’d forget who they are is saddening. And if they continued to use GFs after the events of FF8, then that’s still the case. Someone could go on a SeeD mission, never come back, and eventually everyone else’s memories would get shredded up enough that they’d forget. Your memories would slowly fade of the times you were together with them, until nothing is left. You’d start to forget their face or their name. Everything you’ve done with them would be lost to time, just like everything else in your memories because that’s all they are anymore. That’s... pretty horrifying.

    #gives me FF type 0 vibes #i hope you enjoy my random thoughts i finally have a platform to write them out #yes that thing i reblogged before this sparked this up again #i’ve been thinking about it for a while though fjsdkjd #ff8#npc’s dialogue

    Y’know I was talking with my friends earlier, and the topic of nostalgia and video games and all that came up, and we eventually brought up how often people can feel - because they’re new to a fandom or game series - out of place or just a bit saddened by it all. Like they don’t belong because they just don’t have those nostalgic memories of playing a game as a kid. Or they feel like they just missed out completely on so many different things. They can’t relate to the folks that started playing a game back when they were little because they only just picked up the game recently. Or they’re not a ‘true’ fan because they just got into it. Maybe they want to make fan content, but they’re too afraid of what the older fans will think of it. The list goes on and on.

    But I say... fuck it. You don’t have to have played a game for years to call yourself a fan, you don’t have to play a game at all to call yourself a fan. And even if you feel that way about your interests now, that you don’t have the memories that others do with a game, if it’s special to you then eventually, five, ten years down the line you’ll have made a ton of memories just like you had hoped for.

    I’m 18 years old and sometimes I feel the same way, and I can’t help it. I’ll get into a new game and think ‘man, if only I had found this sooner...’ y’know? But I know I’ve got a long life ahead of me to continue to make memories with the things I love no matter how new they are in my life. No matter my age, eventually I’ll be able to look back on the things I enjoy in the present, the things I wish I had known of sooner, and feel just as the people who did experience it earlier do.

    This was more about video games, but any form of media applies. If something is special to you no matter how long ago you discovered it, if you love something enough to want to be a part of the community that surrounds it, then don’t let those alienating thoughts creep in. They might try to beat you down and tell you that you don’t belong, but as long as you love it, you do.

    Thank you for coming to my ted talk

    I’m currently having a FFVIII x mobius FF kick so don’t mind me... but it makes me want a FFVIII remake so much more

    and damn Doug Erholtz has got Squall down imo... I’ve always liked his voice but when I hear him talk for longer periods of time as Squall in mobius FF, it pretty much completely sells me on him as if I wasn’t already

    (I’m still getting mixed messages as to whether it’s canon to FF8 or not but I personally like the idea of it being canon and that’s totally not because I’m a poor, starving FF8 fan with no canon content left to look at deeply and analyze and I will do anything for more... there are other reasons as well i promise)

    #my internet and tumblr has been so wonky today #it was only showing me stuff I had reblogged ages ago on my dash and I was like 👁👄👁 #trapped in a warped past version of tumblr unable to find my way back to the present #time compressed and my existence was denied #ff8’s ending but it’s fucking tumblr dbskxhsxkabsj #npc’s dialogue#ff8 #mobius final fantasy #i love how my tags have nothing to do with my post fhwkxhaxiwjd

    Y’all gotta step up and start treating Seifer like the Laguna fanboy he is

    #he’s got a fantastic taste in actors that’s for sure #squall collects cards and seifer is obsessed with a movie they’re just a couple of dorks #i can see seifer forcing fujin and raijin to watch the movie #like over and over dnaxjwjxwjd #he’s got the lines memorized tell me i’m wrong #seifer almasy#ff8#npc’s dialogue

    I’m bored, let’s have a bit of fun and talk about some FFVIII together ;)

    Reblog (or put in the tags, whatever) your favourite major and minor character from ff8, and if you want to, tell me why... I like reading this stuff and seeing what characters are special to you in a game that’s special to me

    You hear me? I want you to gush about your faves. Do it.

    (Oh, and don’t feel restricted by my question, if you’re unsure of who counts as what, etc, then just go with your faves! 😘)

    #ff8#npc’s dialogue #i’ll put mine in the tags to start so things aren’t too messy #my favourite major character... bit boring i guess but i love squall #his character development is some of my favourite development i’ve seen in a game so far #and i love his introvertedness... i guess i could say i relate a bit 😂 #i could go on forever with him though so i’ll move on 😂 that barely scratched the surface though #my favourite minor character is probably fujin? though there are a lot to choose from #the thing that sold me with her was that ending bit when she talks normally to seifer #like she cares so much for her friend and just wants everyone to be together again like before #and i think that’s really sweet and the fact that she broke out of the usual way she speaks to talk to seifer made me so happy #also for both of them I love love love their designs

    FFVIII’s ending has gotta be one of my favourite endings to a game, ever

    Rinoa finding Squall and the sky clearing and the flowers popping up? beautiful.

    Seifer genuinely laughing and smiling? Very sweet.

    Laguna and Raine? Makes me cry but I love it.

    And then all through the credits you’ve got the party filmed like a home video and I love it. It makes the characters feel so human, like they’ve truly got a life going on after the game ends. It’s like... the perfect ending. FFVIII has always felt like a bit of a slice of life kind of FF to me, in the beginning especially, and boy does that part deliver and support that.

    And then Rinoa and Squall are together on the balcony and the music and everything... I just love it so much

    #I really like how Rinoa and Squall are together but away from everything going on inside #because even after Squall’s development he’s still the same person #I feel all too often characters develop in such a way that they don’t retain any sense of who they were before #but Squall does #he may have grown and started to heal but he’s still not partying cbwkxjaksaj #he’s still an introvert #he just doesn’t feel alone anymore #ff8#npc’s dialogue #everything about the ending is so beautiful

    Okay why does Cid get his info from Quistis

    “Quistis was right. You do have a hard time expressing your feelings.”

    shouldn’t you know that??? Why are you learning about him from Quistis, you’ve known him his entire life?????? Depending on how soon after he was born that Raine died, it’s possible his family has taken care of him since he was a literal baby???? And for someone he did so much for to prepare for his fate with the sorceress, he sure didn’t prepare him for like... anything else

    The school faculty calls Squall a problem child to his face. And first of all, that’s fucking gross. Don’t do that. But then on top of that, no one seems to help him. The only one who at least tries that I can see is Quistis, with her wanting to get to know him more and... she actually cares for him of course. But she’s a new instructor. I’m really being led to believe that the only one who actually tried to get to know him is a new instructor out of all the years he’s been at Garden, and that’s fucking sad. And if anyone else tried and couldn’t get through to him, chances are they probably just gave up.

    Same with Seifer and Zell. Squad B is the ‘problem’ squad. And I could go on a rant about that as well, because honestly I hate (I love that it’s in the game because of the realism but hate that this is the case for some kids) how... realistic that is, schools not helping their kids with the problems they seem to have and then labeling them lost causes and problem children and casting them aside, just saying ‘that’s how they are’ and never giving kids a chance or the help they need. Giving up on their own students if they’re not acting how they’re ‘supposed to.’

    Squall is Quistis’ best student, so what does it matter that he’s mentally hurting, right? He should open up. He’s just being difficult. But he’s a problem child. It’s just how he is. At least he can fight though.

    But back to the original point because I kinda wandered away from that... what the hell is Cid doing?????? I know Squall is a bit cold and not very social, but that doesn’t mean you and every other person in the school faculty should just give up on him. Especially give up on him for most of his life, and then suddenly be like ‘oh wait actually I DO care about how you act so here’s a position you’re not trained for and not comfortable with, good luck.’

    And then you have the added problem that Cid knows Squall is fated to defeat a sorceress, Cid prepared Garden just for this moment. And yet... there is not even a single sign that he even knows what Squall’s like before he becomes a SeeD. He gives everyone else encouragement of some sort and shows that he knows them during the graduation ceremony, yknow, telling Selphie he’s looking forward to the Garden Festival and all that, and all Squall gets is ‘finally, a gunblade specialist.” like??? Not even a word of encouragement??? Not even a ‘I acknowledge what you’re like’ (or in Selphie’s case, ‘I know what you’ve been working hard on and I’m excited to see it’) Just ‘finally I get a new weapon in SeeD ;)’

    I know Cid is the headmaster and can’t completely control how instructors act and what they do all the time, and I know Garden lost sight of its true goal for a while with the whole money thing and NORG. But for someone seemingly so important to Garden’s fate, you’d think Cid would at least get to know him. And you’d think he’d pick up on the problems that were arising when Squall was still a kid too. I mean, back at the orphanage Squall asked Edea a few times if he was alone, and was constantly staying away from the other kids, calling out for sis. And at that point you’d think you’d see that he was struggling. You’d think Edea would tell him that he was too, and if she didn’t then shame on her. If she did, then shame on him for not doing anything about it.

    At that point, Squall was still voicing how he felt in some way. And it really seems like especially once Cid got a hold of him and took him to Garden that was ignored, and when it got really bad everyone just decided that was how he was and didn’t help. Why didn’t instructors do anything? Why didn’t anyone do anything? Even if he wasn’t fated for anything special, why wasn’t anyone doing anything?

    #hi i just woke up and i’m ranting #i’m hoping this makes sense cause i’m somewhat half asleep lmao #this is the kind of thing i could go on and on about #ranting about Cid never gets old 😂 #i shouldn’t put the blame entirely on cid though #like i said he’s got responsibilities as a headmaster as well #he can’t watch over a single person all the time #i’m just surprised at how little he knows about squall considering everything #ff8#squall leonhart#cid kramer#npc’s dialogue #this was long i’m sorry lol #yes this is another ‘Cid doesn’t treat Squall like a person’ rant 😂 #is this now an official cid hate blog??? #long post

    Some useless FFVIII AUs because... just because, don’t question them and don’t question me, just take them:

    AU where Squall is blonde and Seifer is a brunette

    AU where Squall fights backwards and turns towards the enemy in his victory animation

    AU where Rinoa is dead and Squall is Ultimecia

    AU where Irvine is the butterfly in his intro cutscene

    AU where Zell and Quistis switch personalities

    AU where Selphie has a gun. Enough said.

    AU where Angelo becomes a sorceress instead of Rinoa

    Squall says that the griever ring is his ‘favourite’ ring, and to me that implies that he has a large collection of rings but out of all of them he likes that one the most and i stand by this headcanon—
