I am me, and that is enough.
so I’m playing FFVIII right now and

I’m talking to Em via skype…

as I was talking to her, I’m also reading this really interesting faq on GameFaqs about SeeD ranks and all that… and I made a comment about this in particular:

“Showing off your Gunblade

————————————-

Right after the Fire Cave test when you get Ifrit, there will occasionally be two students sitting on the floor outside the classroom on the 2F of Balamb Garden.  The student on the left will comment that Squall and Seifer are gunblade specialists, and ask to see your gunblade.  If you show it to him, Instructor Aki will come scold you, warning that you will penalized.  When you finally get your SeeD rank after the Dollet mission, your rank will have decreased by 1.

Effects: -1 Rank.

Just, you know, don’t go running around showing off your gunblades.

Unless your Seifer, ‘cause then you don’t have a SeeD rank to worry about |:

:|

WHICH THEN REMINDED ME ALL ABOUT SOME OF THE CRACK JOKES MY FRIEND SAM AND I USED TO MAKE IN HIGH SCHOOL ABOUT FFVIII IN GENERAL.

Such as that one really stupid Final Fantasy VII and VIII crossover we did where Cloud was actually Seifer and Rinoa’s child shoved off into another time and place.  (Rinoa was pissed at Squall for supposedly cheating on her with Quistis and decided to have an affair with Seifer— PROBABLY BETTER YOU DON’T ASK. I DID SAY THIS WAS ALL CRACK, RIGHT?)

So, uh, you know.  :| Seifu being my dad has history.  :|||

Also, another joke was how Rinoa was still pissed at Squall so she cursed him.  After said curse, he turns into a duck and back into a human each and every time someone says the word “duck” around him.

…I mean you could even be talking about aqueducts near him and he’d still turn into a duck if you don’t enunciate the “t.” |:  Like most Americans.  (I know I don’t, anyway.)

So, next time you see a screenshot of my Squall renamed Squawk, think of this joke.

We came up with some crazy shit.

Another favorite was… how Squall stuffs his gunblade in his pants since HOW ELSE DOES IT JUST APPEAR AND DISAPPEAR LIKE THAT, RIGHT. sdlfakewjfaidsfawef

okay I’m done now.

Oh and here’s a history lesson in the crack I wrote in high school.

…Explaining why I named Squall… Squawk.  But really, it’s not necessary to know. Squawk is still a hilarious nickname :|

lynnkouji:

Oh, yes, like this draw point.

Before I even knew wtf drawing and draw points were— I remember seeing this and going, “WTF IS THIS PURPLE SWIRLY THING.”

weird times.

Just so you know, the play through tag of this is “Clous’ Adventures as Squawk” :|

…I’ll eventually get back to playing. And supplying dumb commentary. |D Or sometimes informative/random headcanon

;кυяαυ∂σ: OH GEEZ, THE MISSILE BASE MUSIC FROM FFVIII JUST CAME ON. I swear, this fucking track alsdjfawioefjalsdjfawefasd it really sounds like soft core porn music or something :l

[[ …I just spat on myself.  Congratulations, you deserve cake. ]]

Let the games begin. [Waggles handles at.]

Am I the only one who ever noticed the hole in Seifer’s head here? :|

Have I ever told any of you that I absolutely love Seifer? :|  And I mean, not just because he’s my dad—

okay I’m done now.

So, now the game’s doing something weird and stretching out over my beast of a widescreen.  It looks strange.  But apparently the screenshot doesn’t look awful?  Weird times, man.  Weird times.

Also, these fish along that strip of beach around the Balamb area are the best to get AP early on in this game. 6 AP a battle, since they always come in pairs.  Forget the exp, I usually try to keep my level low (below mid-twenties) till I get jumbo cactuar so I can max everyone’s stats out as much as possible using all the GF’s stat bonus abilities.  It’s actually possible to get 255 on all stats (that you get a bonus ability for), if you keep your level low enough.  My brother did it.  But I usually get too impatient with card mod to be entirely successful. :|  I get close enough.

uwu

oh, drawing.

The only truly annoying part of this game. :|

But, see, this is one of the reasons why the refine abilities are SO AMAZING.

the first part of the first disk is the only time I really do any extensive drawing =w= other than that, I refine all my magic (ultima being the exception because fuck, can’t really refine it—) using the GF’s refine abilities.

Reasons the Card/Card Refine abilities are among the best in the game?  I can keep my level below ~20 up till I get the Jumbo Cactuar and I can easily transform mobs into cards which i can then refine into items— oh and don’t forget to play triple triad. :| best card game ever.

It’s just a fun strategy I like to employ. U:

I remember one of my first battles was actually with a T-Rexaur in that forest.

|:

THIS EARLY IN THE GAME?  YEAH, NOT FUN, OKAY.  So, I think I died ‘cause I didn’t know enough to turn tail and run like the fucking wind.  Considering there’s a rather low chance of you running into a T-Rexaur in that forest, I was just really unlucky.
