    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    Not everyone, mostly the scientific community. That anti-shinra people or those who personally see the issues that came of it before even finding out the cause recognize the issue is a given, as well as those realizing what Jenova really is who were fine with it before that. Only Hojo and...

    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    She still has to deal with the consequences of her actions whether it's her fault or not and regardless of moral standards. That's not the same thing as claiming it's her fault she was led to believe Hojo cared about her in ant capacity or that we should ignore that emotional and mental abuse...

    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    A lot of that is how I like to look at it too, though not all. If Shinra's in charge of scientific education, it'd certainly explain it as well. Even Bugenhagen used to be a Shinra scientist, so the only sciency people we know without a canon history working for Shinra are Fuhito and Shalua...

    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    I suppose the blankness may have a role in it but it can just as easily sway from one to the other based on the few actions known. For example, fandom Kunsel tends to be really smart, turk-like gossip/intel gatherer with an undying loyalty to Zack. This is based on his rumour talk and his trying...

    The skype contact button's been broken for ages but no one ever fixed it.

    Hopes for the remake (story/content)

    Alright so I haven't felt the need to add anything to the discussion here but since Tasha is asking about why people would get excited about a remake that'll change stuff, I figure I might as well share my thoughts. I have mixed feelings about the compilation that range from appreciating story...

    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    Actually, what's canonically shown of Lucrecia and Hojo's relationship is sufficient to qualify it as unambiguously abusive. The constant mocking and verbal abuse when she's trying to revive Vincent, preventing her from going anywhere near Sephiroth, shooting Vincent for having a problem with...

    Hojo, Vincent, Lucretia

    That's still the formula and reasoning behind victim blaming, even if not intended as such. There are forms of abuse that actively undermine a person's judgement and manipulate them into allowing things they normally wouldn't allow and your reasoning still assumes that everyone has the awareness...

    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    In the future, you might want to be clearer about who's post you're quoting, as it's not immediately obvious who and which post you're quoting past the ones labelled as Minato's. I'm pretty sure I already addressed this. In the event that Vincent did regularly kidnap people for experiments, no...

    Hojo, Vincent, Lucretia

    I linked sources about abusive relationships because they're relevant to the discussion and are beneficial to everyone reading this exchange. It's by no means a comment on your personal experience with unhealthy relationships (which I didn't even know about) and not all such experiences are...

    Pokémon Go!

    My radar isn't showing much at the moment but everything is still showing three steps for me. The map also screwed up the parks in that some of them are no longer shaded the way they were before and none of the paths in those areas are shown. On the other hand, houses that used to be absent...

    Pokémon Go!

    Have any of you seen all the fanart that was made after the team leader designs were revealed? There's a lot of it.

    Lucrecia's characterization and depiction

    Just because it works for Hojo and Scarlet doesn't mean it would work for Lucrecia. She's intended to be sympathetic, so a rewrite intending to preserve the OG's intent and characterization would have to stick to that and do a better job showing her as sympathetic. Personal preference and...

    Hojo, Vincent, Lucretia

    See, IRL people can end up in relationships like that and it still doesn't make it their fault they went through what they did, nor does it mean they aren't worthy of sympathy. If you said that to an IRL abuse victim, it'd be considered victim blaming, so I don't see why that sort of reasoning...

    Hojo, Vincent, Lucretia

    You know, Sephiroth's father could go either way without stretching things as far as people seem to think. I'm surprised other aspects of fatherhood besides biological relation haven't really been discussed. I completely understand Lic's frustration with people claiming Vincent's the father and...
