Final Fantasy VIII
Ah, character development. So wonderful and yet so dangerous. Wonderful because, hurrah, movement, growth, etc. Dangerous because it becomes difficult to say you like a character in a general sense. What I mean is,
HOLY FUCK I LOVE SQUALL.
I haven't liked him since I was eight years old. I also haven't played this part of the game (end of Disc 2, beginning of Disc 3) since I was eight years old, although I may have liked him back then just because he's pretty. I fully admit that at the beginning of the game, he is a major douchebag. Not quite as much as Luke from Tales of the Abyss
(who sadly sticks in my mind pre-development), but: "Your schoolmate is dead." "THIS IS ABOUT MEEE."
Have some shame, dude. Childhood trauma and internal monologues considered, that was still pretty bad. But then he started to grow, thanks to his friends who touched his shriveled little jackass heart and caused it to blossom into a happy palpitating blood squeezer, re: "You're glad they're not dead!" "No, I'm not. (Except I secretly am.)"
I am eagerly anticipating the train tracks scene because I think I will be all over
that, especially given the record of scenes that have made me like Squall:( my paraphrased Squall talks a lot more than real Squall )Vampire Relationships lolololol
AHAHAHAHAHA, I was just reading a description of the things Edward from Twilight
does to Bella that can be considered creepy and misogynistic, such as sneaking into her room and watching her sleep, stalking her, breaking up with her for her own good, thinking she needs constant supervision and protection, etc. etc. etc. and it sounds just like Angel and Buffy.
I haven't read Twilight
, but as far as I can tell, the difference is that Angel and Buffy's relationship is portrayed as unhealthy and doomed to fail, whereas Edward and Bella's is portrayed as the ideal (or so I hear). Also, Buffy can beat the shit out of Angel. And does. Numerous times.
