The Million Gil Question: WHY Auron & Lulu?!

One of my friends has said that she simply doesn't see Auron and Lulu having a relationship. This is reasonable, since, obviously, in the game they do not.

Fandom pairings consist of speculating about things that could've happened, and didn't. Occasionally fans slip over into saying, "See? See? That proves it! It's THERE!" I have no such illusions. It's not in the game. It would just have been enjoyable, if it were.

I created this Auron/Lulu fanvid in 2008.
It expresses visually the ideas I tried to explore in this essay.


Fic recommendation

Trekqueen has honored me with a fanfic of my fanfic. She's seen some future chapters of Resurrection which aren't ready for prime time. I give you (or rather she gives you):
No Regrets, a one-shot set at the end of FF X-2, where Lulu learns that Auron's ghost is still in the world somewhere. It makes me sniffle every time I read it!

Also, in compiling my AuronLu shrine's fanfic directory, Grieve by lynnxlady on is the best of the Aulu pieces I've found on so far, with Stars Over Zanarkand a close second. Both have a similar plot arc, but Grieve has some great Lulu-style zingers and Auron-style one-liners that are spot-on.
