Great in-game Auron/Lulu moment

Aulu moments don't happen often in the game because the focus is on Tidus and Yuna, and Auron and Lulu aren't very communicative. They usually interact in businesslike exchanges like Auron trotting up to Lulu to ask, "what's our itinerary?" or Lulu challenging Auron when he says "to heck with Yevon" (or words to that effect) under Macalania lake, or the two of them working in tandem on Mt. Gagazet to convince the Ronso not to kill Yuna.

I tend to listen/watch video clips to help me get their voices in my head again when I'm having trouble writing a chapter. I just hit one that made me grin. See the end of the Bevelle clip (about 3:56) on the Matt McKenzie fansite when the party goes back to save Kimahri. It's tiny tiny, but I love the the brief exchange between the two older Guardians before they go charging after the young'uns. Especially Lulu's almost apologetic smile -- she knows he's right.

Edit: Matt Mckenzie site down. HERE it is:

Oddly enough I have had a story idea in my head for a week that has been spawned from that very moment... but typical of me it's an Auronism! The exchange is sweet!

The fact that Auron and Lulu both appeared together to help Tidus on Bikanel Island inspired a lot of Aulu fans to write stories and interactions between them starting from there.

Well.. we don't know how long was Tidus out till we see them all again, so we don't know what was happening between Auron and Lulu when the camera was not on them.

Though not much interactions between the both of them, I did notice that there were scenes in the later parts that you will start spotting them standing near each other. There was a scene which showed them on Mt. Gagazet looking out to the Zanarkand ruins. And when it showed the Zanarkand ruin in full, if you noticed you will only see Auron, Lulu and Yuna on the mountain and no signs of other guardians (strangely).

Yep, Bikanel's a very obvious time when they're together. Also in the Via Purifico, depending on what order the party gets back together. Also back on the airship following the Yunalesca battle, when Cid looks around and says, "cheery-looking bunch!" or something like that. Finally, they are together in the final showdown with Sin, standing shoulder to shoulder or getting knocked off their feet when the airship's heading into Sin's mouth.

It's partly a function of the two older guardians tending to stand and watch over the group from behind. However, they weren't doing that earlier in the story. Something seems to shift after they kill Seymour (Lulu and Auron land in about the same spot when they fall under Macalania Temple too). Square never intended anything by it, I'm sure, but I can't help but notice. :)
