Oh EM GEE. (Final Fantasy X EASTER EGG!)

So I decided to replay the last battle of FFX for fanfiction inspiration purposes. I pulled out an old saved file where I'd maxed out the sphere grid.

It occurred to me that I'd never filled out my FFX Combat Quotes page with the "Provoke" and "Threaten" quotes for every character.

Tidus and Auron, as you've probably seen, each have a couple different taunts when you use those abilities. The other characters don't say anything when they "Provoke," but they have special animations.

Sooo. YOUR ASSIGNMENT, oh FFX geeks:

1. Go find your last save file of FFX.
2. Open the sphere grid.
3. Find that Special Sphere you were saving for a rainy day.
4. Activate someone's "Provoke" node.
5. Pick a fight with a monster and Provoke it.
6. Rinse, repeat.

The "Threaten" quotes are not so exciting, but some of the "Provoke" moves are quite amusing.

Rikku "provokes" by slapping her butt and sticking her tongue out (sort of; she puts her hands up to her ears and waggles them). Kimahri does a vaguely obscene gesture with his tail. Wakka's boring, thumping his chest in a macho manner. Auron does the Seifer/Balthier "you wannna a piece of me?" hand-gesture. Tidus has a couple different taunts. Yuna seems to call out something (no quote, Square? Lazy lazy) and waves cutely (sigh). And Lulu?

Did she just make a pass at me that Varuna demon-thingie? YES SHE DID. It's the LeBlanc shimmy and an air-kiss, only less vampy and more elegant.

Alas, most of the "Threaten" quotes are boring. They all say some variant of "Don't move!" or "Stop!" However, Lulu's growled "You move, you die" is satisfying.

Now I wish someone would nab the "Provoke" animations for Lulu, Kimahri, Auron and Rikku and put them up on YouTube. SNERK.

You have just pressed all of Sissyhiyah'ss buttons (except I don't know if she's got any interest in the ever-so-obvious Squall/Seifer dysfunctional relationship).

Sis is our resident Quistis/Seifer writer, with healthy helpings of Quistis/Xu for variety's sake.

And that icon makes me drool. I'm so shallow. :P (Except it also makes me sad, because it's Eowyn girding her hair up for a fight scene that got cut because PJ was too busy writing his Haldir/Aragorn AU fanfic.)

Buttons? I have buttons? Hee! Guess I do.
Oh yes, I've noticed the Seifer/Squall thing. I just. Hate. Squall. Can't. Make. Myself. Like. Him. Have. Tried. Have. Failed. Grr. Want. To. Punch. Him. In. Head.

Holy hell, I'm channeling Fujin again.

Nah, I've noticed how bad Squall wants to hump Seifer (and hump him he would. Seifer is such a cute little bottom, though he likes to pretend he's not) but I just get so BORED with Squall. Ugh. I've tried so hard to like him, but it's impossible.

I'll stick to Seifer and Xu. Fun characters, even though Xu has so few lines. She's such a charming little bitch. And since I'm nerding out, look at this incredibly lovely actress. If she scowled a bit, can't you see her as Xu?
