Tifa never realized her feelings too late, at least to me. She asks Cloud to make that promise at the well before he left, during crisis core/before crisis it's clear that Tifa worries over Cloud, himself being ashamed of coming out not being who he promised to be yet, then I think he's desensitized to what feelings he had because he takes on a new personality, Tifa helping him find his true self here as well. I'm kind of a die hard Zerith fan too. Aerith was only interested in the Zack that was emulated through Cloud.
I detest any LTD debates on this blog, but I have to comment on your last sentence because it is wrong. Nomura has clearly stated over and over that Aerith may of saw some similarities, but came to the conclusion that Cloud is different from Zack, and she loves him much more. She no longer has feelings for Zack in the present, and this is stated by Aerith and Nomura themselves, again. On top of that, their relationship has been described with these words: juvenile, naive, platonic, and non-intimate. I will gladly provide you with the quotes/sources if you come off anon.
In fact #25 you wrote about Aerith and Sephiroth, it's very interesting. Where can I read about it? I cant' find some information about this earlier draft... help me please :3
You can read part of it here in Aerith’s character profile.
Sorry for lack of updates these past few days, everyone! Creator is currently on vacation in Florida. I’ll be back with more probably during the night or just when I get home next week so don’t fret, more facts coming at you soon. :)
Do you like Tidus and Yuna?
Yes, they’re one of my favorite Final Fantasy couples.
Have you seen Dead Fantasy? If not, check it out!
I’ve been following Dead Fantasy since the first fight! It’s my favorite fan made production. :)
Not a huge fan of Rinoa myself, but I would love seeing Squall happy, as silly as that may sound.
I kind of like Squall/Leon on his own in Kingdom Hearts, his personality is a little more lively! Hehe.
Have you played all the Final Fantasy games? If not, which have you played? Or not played? (Answer the shorter list)
I have played all Final Fantasy games to date with the exception of 2, 4 (didn’t finish it), and Tactics.
With how their worlds have been "consumed with darkness," do you find it possible for Rinoa being in the next Kingdom Hearts? (And be reunited with Squall, d'aw)
Remember at the end of Kingdom Hearts II, during the credits, Squall was reading that random letter and a little pair of wings fluttered up and out? Theory has it that that means Rinoa will appear in the next Kingdom Hearts, and hey, that would be cool, but I’m not a big fan of Rinoa so I’m kind of hoping not. I like the Final Fantasy cast in Kingdom Hearts the way it is.
