    Theory Videos and other interesting shit

    I am willing to accept that Jenova is not a virus if that's what canon says, but it seems to act like a virus. According to Tufts University website: " A virus puts its information into a cell—a bacterial cell, a human cell, or animal cell, for example. It contains instructions that tell a cell...

    Theory Videos and other interesting shit

    I'm just going to throw in my two cents that nobody asked for. Sephiroth is a (mostly) human being, and as such he has consciousness, a mind, self-awareness, a will etc... Jenova, though it has the appearance of a human woman, is a mimic and a virus from space. Can a virus be said to have a...

    I wish they'd just express their theories as AU fanfiction.

    What are you listening to?

    Those lyrics are amazing. I love the economy of them, and how they tell a whole complex story in relatively few lines.

    What are you listening to?

    I've been listening to Gandalf Sir Ian Mckellen in a BBC Radio dramatisation of Milton's Paradise Lost. "Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven..."

    The Five Bosses of Godo's Pagoda

    I do rather like the idea of Godo's name having no point... A clever troll, as you say.

    I've been on this hecking website for 10 years

    I can't even remember whether I was here before Fangu or Fangu was before me. This place has been a constant in my life through all sorts of upheavals. I treasure it. A vote of thanks to Fangu for being here and being awesome! And yes, a huge thank you to @Cthulhu, who had a dream and made it...

    The Five Bosses of Godo's Pagoda

    I don't doubt SE has a great big book called World Mythology or some suchlike that they regularly consult in their quest for names. It's consistent with their practice right from the start. Video game people have always tended to be mythology fans anyway, so I'm sure they brought their probably...

    The Five Bosses of Godo's Pagoda

    Like naming Domino and Hart after pizza companies because Midgar is a "pizza", it's deliberate, but it's not deep. It's just a little joke, really. However, if there is some deeper reason, some more profound significance, I'd love to know what it is.

    The Five Bosses of Godo's Pagoda

    Well, I seriously doubt SE spent much time dreaming up the names for their minor bosses in optional side quests (otherwise they'd have made their theatre a bit more representational, and not taken three from Russia, one from England, and one a character in a play rather than a playwright. I mean...

    The Five Bosses of Godo's Pagoda

    I did say we were waiting on Godo :desucait: I am pleased, though unsurprised, that my assumption TLS members are a cultured group of people who'd all get the reference turned out to be correct. I was particulaly interested in this: "The intention was that each opponent would speak in a...

    The Five Bosses of Godo's Pagoda

    I was asking on tumblr about the etymology of some Wutai place names, and recieved a reply that led me to this on the wiki "All the bosses in the Wutai Pagoda appear to have a link to theater. Shake is likely a shortened version of Shakespeare, the most famous English playwright. The intention...

    LOVELESS - When did the play first start being shown?

    It would make more sense to write, "The gaviscon quenched my pain" than to write "The gaviscon quenched me". However, if it works for you as poetry then there's no more to be said. Matters of taste aren't really debateable.

    Did Hojo manipulate Lucrecia? [split from Repository of Debunked Rumors]

    In DoC, are we given the impression that he regularly visits Lucrecia in her crystal?

    LOVELESS - When did the play first start being shown?

    Your version rhymes, certainly. But dew doesn't "quench the land". If you drink a nice cold ice cold can of Mountain Dew because you're thirsty on a hot day, you don't say, "That Mountain Dew really quenched me". You'd say, "It quenched my thirst." In the same way, dew can't quench the land, it...

    LOVELESS - When did the play first start being shown?

    Tres, I don't think anyone is arguing that people will misunderstand the meaning of "quench" in Loveless or that it is intended there in a negative sense. We're just arguing that it's bad English and bad poetry; or at least, not as good as it could have been. A line can be understandable and...
