Hahahaha man I read this hilarious Seifer/Squall fic the other day. It involved Squall secretly being an angel but not being able to tell anybody, and was the victim of this conspiracy planned by Rinoa and Ultimecia to get him and Seifer 2gethr 4evr so Ultimecia could send him to Hell, and even though in the end Squall manages to single-handedly change the course of Seifer's life in just about every way possible, Seifer is totally cool with it because HE JUST LUVZ SQUALL SO MUUUUCHHH and it was just really ridiculous. Maybe I should recap it for you guys or something |B

Whooooaaaa this is awesome. Not much of a point or anything, but awesome. I AM FASCINATED BY SHINY THINGS, I CANNOT TELL A LIE

Reckless Justice! Stole this one from [livejournal.com profile] calvin_hawkins. I DROVE... RECKLESSLY

Anyway HEY HEY HEY WHO'S UP FOR SOME FFIV sorry about the delay, there. I've been having a lot of trouble motivating myself to do these and I dunno why :O Just going through kind of a funk, I guess. I think I'll try taking and prepping a bunch of shots in advance, so that way, once it's time for the next episode, all I'll have to do is code everything and write commentary. That should lessen the desire to procrastinate, hopefully. IF NOT THEN I'M AFRAID WE'RE ALL SCREWED wait no

So let's seeeeeee... when we last left off we met Yang, who led us to Fabul and had us help defend the castle and the Crystal of Air against Golbez and the Red Wings (there's a band name for ya). After fighting for a billion years (five minutes) and continuously retreating like a bunch of sissies, Cecil and co. hold their ground in the Crystal Room. Kain walks in, we find out he's all evil, Golbez walks in and babbles and kidnaps Rosa, angst. Cecil, Yang, and Rydia decide to sneak into Baron on a boat so they can ask Cid for an airship, and the king says he'll get one for 'em. WILL THIS BOATRIDE BE A LEISURELY ONE, OR WILL IT LEAD TO NOTHING BUT PAIN AND STRIFE? LET'S FIND OUT!

Previous episodes





I SEES IT wow that was fast



Okay, Cid's theme plays for sure this time! :D YEAH LET'S ALL GO MEET CID WOOO




Oddly formal, aren't we






IS THAT AN ORDER







And awaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyy we goooooooo
I think there's this little sound effect that sounds like Yang's wife is breaking a bottle against the boat and someone sounds a horn or something, but I can't remember |B



You can't tell, but this boat moves REALLY FREAKING FAST. It's seriously just zippin' like a racecar. Also, this sequence lasts forever. IT DOESN'T TAKE THIS LONG TO GET TO BARON THIS ISN'T SOME KIND OF TRAP IS IT





shouldn't we have discussed this earlier




Ha ha naw he's dead




ANNA USED TO LOVE BOATS :'(
yeah i know he's seasick shaddup



Seriously are you sure you guys know where you're going




The screen starts shaking at this point. Man, nothing ever goes smoothly with Cecil. The guy could be making toast and he'd wind up setting the whole town on fire.





IT'S...
BEAUTIFUL






NEPTUNE wait no that's king






Leviatan: sup
Y'know, I've always said it as "Leviathan." It just sounds smoother or something :O






Pause...




...aaaaaand resume running. I love this game |3




NOOO






Edward walks over like he's GOING to help them, then just stands there. ya wimp




*bang*



EDWARD'S BEEN SHOT wait no






*screen rumbling, etc*





dundundunnnn




Cecil's A-OK!
But where are the others? :O













And I remembered to unequip them this time! Woooo!



And now I'm in a grassy field somehow!

Well, at least we washed up near a town. I'm sure the people there will be happy to help me out!



...well, crap.
Mystic Mysidia plays here. I've always really liked this song. All simple and weird sounding :O



:<




NO NO PLEASE DON'T KILL M--






...I'm sure your friend is very proud.
You can talk to him again and he'll change you back, by the way. SOME REVENGE, HUH




So that's why it was sealed! Though that doesn't really stop them from having the Red Wings fly over and bomb the whole place, but






Cecil: All I said was "hello" :<



Uhh, they're dead.






"Just a little, though!"



The screen does this whenever you walk. It's like... y'know how when one of your Pokemon gets poisoned and the screen blinks and makes that noise at every other step? It's like that. That always freaks me out for some reason.













HAHAHAHAHAHA







And she just bounces off the screen. Whatever, random old lady



You can just sleep at the Inn and it'll cure all your ailments. :O Luckily you don't wake up with a severed horse head on your pillow or anything



The Training Room is the same as always. Everyone's too busy learning about save states to bother with being angry at you.




Cecil: TOUCH? :B













That is the most random thing I have ever seen.



WHINE WHINE WHINE



I WASHED UP OKAY



Fun Fact: This is actually supposed to be the House of Prayers, but it got changed due to the whole censorship thing and Nintendo not wanting to make any religious references.



this guy kept walking RIGHT IN MY WAY




WHOOPS



LONG TIME NO SEE EH PAL
Long Way to Go plays once you talk to him. This is another song I've always really liked. It's just all pretty and... mysterious? Is that the word I'm looking for?



that doesn't really answer his question




Y'KNOW... WHAT'S-HER-FACE




His trial for what?





BUT THE WHOLE THING WITH GOLBEZ TAKING THE CRYSTALS IS KIND OF... IMPORTANT AND EVERYTHING





Comforting words!





Pretty sure Palom and Porom starts up, here.






NO
















Hahahahahaha



Awkward spacing, there.




Aaaand end cutscene! Everyone's dialogue immediately changes after you say you're gonna become a paladin. Either Cecil is going around saying HAY GUYZ I'M GONNA BE A PALADIN or news travels really fast in Mysidia. Or the whole town was secretly lurking in the shadows as Cecil talked with the Elder.





:B



WHY THANK YOU



THANK YOU, YES, THANK YOU







Something about Cecil becoming a paladin just shocks everyone so much that they forget the rules of grammar.



This is true, actually -- if Cecil attacks an undead monster with his current sword, then it'll only do 1 damage. Very annoying >O



He's referring to the paladin equips, by the way.





Cecil: i'm standing right here guys :<




Haha, the dancer doesn't care whether you're a paladin or not. I don't think she EVER stops turning you into a pig, actually.



She even turns your party members into pigs! Also, gotta love how Cecil's pig is all dark. EVIIIIIL



Anyway. Character portraits! Palom and Porom aren't very strong AT ALL right now (thanks, Elder), but they learn new stuff pretty quick. It's kinda like when Rydia first joins you and you pretty much just have to keep her alive and level her for a while before she can be more useful :V



Doo dee dooooo. It's a pretty long walk to Mt. Ordeals, but also pretty straightforward. Yet, I still managed to get lost. HURRR



Aaaagh it can be so frustrating when an enemy attacks from behind, since it reverses your rows. Mages will be in the front and fighters will be in the back and stuff. You can reverse it again in battle (rereverse?), but it can take a little while, which can often lead to your mages dying or getting really hurt.



FOR EXAMPLE



Here we are!



woooooo



AND IMMEDIATELY I RUN INTO ENEMIES, JUST MY LUCK



...well, the rocks are on fire for some reason. We should probably take care of that.




I CAN'T...
MY VILLAGE... WAS FROZEN...













Hahahaha. She does this a lot. Always makes me smile :B





:O



:O!!
Somewhere in the World. Yet another song I've always liked! Probably because it reminds me of Kain. KAAAAAAIIIIIIIIINNNNN 8U



Hahaha, Milon. His original name was Scarmiglione, and I actually kind of prefer that, mainly because this just makes me think of Milon from Milon's Secret Castle and I start laughing.





HAHAHAHAHA sorry



GET THE CRYSTALS AND RULE THE WORLD? PFFFFFFFFF





Dun dun DUNNNNNN










HE'LL THROW ENERGY BALLS AND JUMP AROUND, IT'S COO'




Rosa: *struggles pointlessly*




HOW DARE YOU TRY TO HELP CARRY OUT MY EVIL PLANS I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS





That must be the worst job ever, just sitting and watching a tied up person and listening to them whine and stuff





Cecil: :B~



After a bit of walking...








Cecil and Tellah run towards each other, arms extended, across a field of rocks flowers




Not even gonna get into the logic, here :V







:O?










Tellah: yeah whatever




Did Cecil ever tell Tellah (hurr hurr) who Rosa is? I mean, I know he said "my friend is sick," but... :O








"Meteo" is supposed to be "Meteor," by the way. THE 'R' WAS TOO OFFENSIVE actually they just changed a whole lot of things for no reason, didn't they



AT LEAST SHE'S HONEST






nags Porom, who just interrupted them two seconds ago





exclaims Tellah, who didn't even know who he was a day or two ago




woooooooooooooooooo



I think she is called Lilith. I didn't get a shot with her name for some reason BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THAT'S IT



Stuff always happens on the summit.



See?




And with that, ZOMBIE ATTACK :O



Uh oh, a randomly placed save point! This could get ugly!





SHUT UP ALREADY





GIRL SCOUTS no





i just imagine him saying this like WELL HELLOOOOOOOOOO for some reason



Haha, okay! Guess we'll see you later, then!



OH WAIT I GET IT you freak





Yeah, Milon isn't hard at all. What I did was have Palom and Porom use Twin (can cast either Flare or Comet) which took out most of the zombies, then I just pummeled Milon with Twin, Fire1, and Cecil's normal attack. Easy.




Haaaaahahahahahaaaaaaaa






Oh yeah, I HAVE been levelling this entire time |B I just haven't posted screenshots since I don't think anyone really cares. WOO



Many people would say to run back and use the save point before going on, but I was feeling confident! Also, I forgot...




It's also good to go to the menu and reverse the rows, so that when Milon Z attacks then you wont have to waste a turn switching. And stuff. But I forgot about that, too...
The Dreadful Fight, which plays whenever there's a really tough boss battle. Milon Z isn't so hard, though.





TELLAH! >O



Haha wow, go twins.
You can pretty much just use the same strategy as before, only have Tellah act as a healer instead of a fighter. You can also heal Milon Z to do damage, since he's undead, but I didn't bother with that :B Also, Milon Z has an annoying habit of poisoning members of your party. arrrg






But I beat him before too long!








Truly a death that would make even a grown man cry.



Moving on!







GASP! WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED? WHERE DID THEY GO? AND WHAT WAS WITH THAT MYSTERIOUS VOICE??

FIND OUT NEXT TIME!

Woooooo could've sworn there was something else I wanted to mention. Ah well |B

GASP this is truly exciting!

KAAAAAIIINNN i don't understand why i like him so much? Maybe it's the friend shindig? or the name? hmmm...

Tellah reminds me of Albert Einstein...MAYBE IT'S THE HAIR

I always pronounced "Leviathan". :o You say it "Leviatan"? Weird.

God it's late. :B BUT. YAY. ONWARD. pip pip hup hup and so forth

I've always loved Kain 8D MY FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER SINCE CHILDHOOD
I'm actually not sure why I like him so much, either :B I guess I just feel sorry for him, though I don't wanna say why since it's a spoiler. cough.

HEY HE DOES KINDA LOOK LIKE HIM hahahaha that's great. Even better once you think about how his GBA portrait has purple glasses.

Nope! :O I say "Leviathan," but "Leviatan" is the official spelling. What's weird is that I didn't even notice it until I actually spelled it out, haha. I'VE ADDED THE 'H' ALL THESE YEARS

TALLY HO!

Oh hey if you want a way to semi-automate the coding, you can do it with Excel (or, I assume, other spreadsheet software).
1)Take a list of the image locations, one to a line, and paste it into Excel so that you have one column filled with them.
2)In the next column (say column B), type:
<img src="
and drag-copy it down to fill the entire column with that.
3)In the next column (say column C) type:
">
and drag-copy it down to fill the entire column with that.
4)In the next column, use the CONCATENATE function to put them all together (B1 in the first row, A1 in the second row, C1 in the third row) so that what appears is <img src="http://whatever.com/whatever.jpg"> and drag-copy that down to fill the whole column with it (it should do it as a series automatically--so if the last row is row 130, the actual formula in D130 will be B130+A130+C130).
5)Copy that column (D).
6)Highlight the next column (E) and then right-click-->paste special-->values. This makes it paste the actual values instead of the formula.
7)Copy from that column (E) and paste into Notepad (might not be necessary but I like to make sure I get rid of any formatting stuff it may have done) and then copy from Notepad and paste into LJ.

I do that for all my repetitive coding stuff. :V Much quicker that going through and pasting <img src=" "> around everything one at a time.

It was hiding under that enormous bridge. :D

wait what about that airship they already HAD! Jesus those things don't grow on trees you know, you can't just throw it away when you're done with it for a little while.

WHIRLPOOL OF DEATH AND TENTACLES

Well hey, it's not like Cecil can swim with all that armor on. :B EDWARD THOUGH, EDWARD COULD BE A LITTLE LESS USELESS.

What the heck :O

Ooooo yeah, Mystic Mysidia is cool. :D Ha, for some reason it reminds me of Saturn Valley. Maybe it's the beginning, and the bit in the back the whole time. :O

You can talk to him again and he'll change you back, by the way. SOME REVENGE, HUH
hahhahahahahahahahhahaha
I guess he didn't really like his friend that much.

Hahaha "a bit". THEY CARE SO MUCH.

Or the whole town was secretly lurking in the shadows as Cecil talked with the Elder.

Hahaha oh yeah. JUST BEYOND THE EDGE OF THE SCREEN IN FACT. :D

Ohhhhh so it was the dancer, not the poison. :B

MY VILLAGE... WAS FROZEN...

SHUT UP IT WAS VERY TRAGIC :'(

What the heck did he turn into there :O
although it does explain the cloak before.

YOU KILLED MY FATHER
NO. I AM YOUR FATHER.

Aha! Thank you! I must give that a trrrryyyy :O which reminds me, i should really explore those programs a little more instead of just being ghetto and going with notepad all the time :B duhur

They had an airship? XD I thought that one belonged to the Red Wings.

YEAH EDWARD, GOD. Just stand there while your friends are drowning what's wrong with you

Hey, it does kinda sound like Saturn Valley! Haha, I thought that song reminded me of something.

NO...
NO...
THAT'S NOT TRUE...
THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE

It's really handy! :D If you don't know how to do formulas, look up near the top... there'll be a text field like the url box, and just to the left of it there'll be a stylized f. Click the f and you'll get a list of functions. (I'm assuming you have Office 2003 or before, though, since they may have changed it in 2007. XO If you're using 2007 then I guess just do a help search on concatenate. Office actually tends to be pretty decent with its Help (at least, if you're reasonably good at knowing what keywords to search for--same skill as google-fu, really); I think people just rag on it because of the dancing paperclip.)

YOU KNOW the one they got when Edward joined, that they left when they went into the mountains that they mysteriously couldn't go over. I mean even if it isn't technically theirs, well, they do have it available to them.

I put it on repeat while I was reading this. :D IT IS NEARLY AS AWESOME AS THE SATURN VALLEY THEME which I can also just listen to and listen to endlessly. :D

SEARCH YOUR FEELINGS. YOU KNOW IT TO BE TRUE.
