I did it!!!! At least, I think so. I got to the first Chapter 5 100% checkpoint, and I had the right percentage. So I think I'm back on track after many trials!

Not 100% sure what I did differently, but I'm not going to argue.

I'm going to try Chapter 4 again. Wish me luck!

Can officially confirm, I fucked up something in Chapter 4 and now my single-run 100% dreams are dust. I have a save from before then but not the fortitude to do everything over. I will end up wanting to see the New Yevon scenes anyway.

Also I fucked up one (1) publicity prompt and now have to load a save from like two hours ago. Save often, kids, and don't look at guides when your eyes are blurry from lack of sleep!

I had thoughts and feelings about early ch. 5, and also X-2 blitzball is dumb and I don't like it, but I'm a creature composed entirely of cranky.

ETA: Also my game glitched and gave me the trophy for defeating Trema in the middle of a random battle. I'm going to actually do it anyway (somehow), but it's weird.

ETA: I ran through the whole sequence twice in a row, consulting three different guides, and I'm STILL not sure if I messed up somewhere (and if so, where). That's it I'm done if this isn't good enough I'll just have to NG+ my way to 100%.

I didn't fully realize until just now that the end-of-chapter-3 scenes in Bevelle are optional. If you've been there once in the chapter and been turned away, you could easily miss a cutscene that ties the whole story together. I mean, I guess you learn soon that Baralai's been possessed, much of the character stories are revealed, are revealed to have stories, there. Why is that missable?

Characterization burbling )

In other news, I decided I wanted to get BOTH publicity companies to level 4, which involves just so much grinding at Sky Slots. So much. I watched like a podcast and a half, playing with the sound off so I didn't go mad, and they're not short! A total of 3.5-4 hours spent in the Calm Lands. Why did I do this to myself?

P.S. I still love Wakka. He's a dumb boy but he tries so hard, and he's grown so much. Even if he's dumb enough to go in without a healer, WAKKA, I know you have a lot of HP but PLEASE.

P.P.S. Actually I love Kimahri also; even though he's not with Yuna anymore he's still looking for spheres to make her happy.

P.P.P.S. Yuna protecting the guardians who once protected her!!!

I'm replaying this for the nth time, this time on PS4, because sometimes you just want to do sidequests and be girls. Anyway!

In Chapter 2, just had an encounter with Nooj outside the Den of Woe, and it got me thinking: what does Nooj think is going on? It doesn't sound like Shuyin's driving all the time - among other things, a charismatic leader and organizer he is not - so does that mean Nooj isn't aware that he's possessed? He asks the Gullwings to help him get into the Den of Woe; is that something Shuyin wants, or does Nooj want to dispel its evil somehow, or find answers to what happened to them?

What does Nooj think happened at Mi'ihen? Presumably he, if he's mostly the one driving and I suspect he is, doesn't remember shooting his friends. Does he just...not think about it, like his brain avoiding the place where the hole is? Brains do that; people with various forms of brain damage can be very functional despite not being able to notice that there's something missing because the noticing bit is part of what's damaged.

Is Nooj confused, when he walks up to Paine and she gives him the cold shoulder?

I kind of want to write a fic now from Nooj's perspective on the events of/surrounding the game, especially while he's possessed and - I think - unable to notice it. ...He must be lonely.

And of course I can't help but think about Paine's perspective on that scene too, how Rikku and even Yuna are asking her about Nooj like he's an ex-boyfriend when she's thinking about how he tried to kill her. No wonder she shuts it down so hard!
