FFIXWeek, Day2: Reunited by The-Z FFIXWeek, Day2: Reunited by The-Z
FFIX Week Day 2, Favorite Scene/Cutscene: Zidane and Garnet reunite.

Zidane times his return for maximum dramatic effect. Garnet abandons her throne and races to meet him. Nothing will stop her! Gladly, they embrace.

And she proceeds to beat him in a wonderful mix of emotion. The same pain and relief and elation and remorse is mirrored in Zidane’s expression. My heart ached for those two in that moment and I cared for a romantic couple in a Final Fantasy game like I hadn’t since the console change.

There are so many good scenes in this game from which to choose, but many years rping Zidane swayed my decision.

I love the drama in this image. It's perfect--especially the hunky guy with the cool head (totally inspiring).

I remember this scene. It's a great scene and you capture that here. Especially in Garnet's expression; the tears but still clearly angry.

Yeah, she waited for Zidane for so long and I wanted to capture that moment of raw emotion when she finally saw him again. Also, I don't remember copying a thumbnail link.

I really wish they had made a PC port of FFIX so they could release it on Steam...

On my notifications page, the thumbnail looks kinda like Zidane is shaving a goat's leg.

Y'know, this scene was just one of many reasons why I love 9 the most.

Wasn't it great how naturally they let the relationship develop, too? After 7 and 8 it was such a welcome change! I just glommed on to these to as my favorite pair through the entire series and that's even up against old favorites like Rosa and Cecil (good job making babies, Rosa, I'm going back to work now ~.~) and Edward/Anna (there love is so doomed!). The give and take and then character GROWTH is so essential to the FF9 theme. It remains at the top of my list among rpgs.

Yesss. They really let all of the relationships between characters develop. I didn't even notice until recently that the entire playable character party doesn't meet until disk 3 (there's always someone breaking up the band haha). But between the development of Garnet/Zidane and Steiner/Beatrice I was a happy camper all over the place! Just good characters and good story.

And I defended this to my SO's roommate when we first met and he eavesdropped me saying 9 was my favorite and suddenly declared 'THEN WE CAN'T BE FRIENDS'
