I almost picked this picture for the cover, but I didn’t want to use another beach photograph since I did that for Chapter 6. I did settle on a picture though, which will be revealed when I post the next chapter. I would’ve loved to have found a picture of Sephiroth shielding Aeris from the rain under his wing, and hilariously, I found a picture like that a few days later, but it doesn’t quite meet my (impossible) requirements.
The two names for them I detest the most.
There’s not a damn thing wrong with this picture, but it doesn’t quite fit the mood of the chapter (which you’ll hopefully see when you read it). Regardless, I found a picture that while not exactly what I was looking for still suffices, as inspired by this week’s quote.
Quote: They were before an arch that led into the square. On a nearby rooftop a child blew bubbles towards the unseen stars. Lanterns swung light in the uplifted breeze scattering shadows so they couldn’t lurk.

I started the Story section yesterday, but then I remembered I completely forgot to add battle mechanics to the Gameplay section *smacks forehead* I talked about Mirages and stacking, but apparently was remiss on mentioning how that all comes together. It’s not that complicated, but I should at least write a passing paragraph about it.
I was wrong last week about the Story section not being that elaborate. It’s not going to be as long as say IV’s story section, but World has a pretty involved plot just like every other Final Fantasy. I’m actually kind of happy it won’t take me too long to explain it, because I can spend more time in examination and comparison.
Project: Book Review
Title: The Illustrated A Brief History of Time
Author: Stephen Hawking
I started the preliminaries for this probably before I even made the post last week. I should be able to write the review proper in the next few days, since I finished the one for Blue Lily, Lily Blue yesterday.
What are you currently working on? Is it a creative writing project, essay, review, or something else? Have you just started something new or are you wrapping up a long term project?
