I’m gonna tell you ‘bout my Romantic Dream. It involves reassigning Squall’s inspiration, falling down a hill, assuming chicken-wuss, meeting Biggs and Wedge, discussing Guardian Force ethics, slaying Elvoret, uncovering GF compatibility, both killing and evading the X-ATM092, learning to run, dropping out of focus, humiliating Zell’s mom, and wondering why Balamb exists. God took all the good magic.
