    Summary

    Estinien has returned to Ishgard, again, like the stray cat he is. And like a stray cat, he wants attention when it's both most appreciated and most inconvenient, from a very-tired Aymeric. Naughty, silly shenanigans ensue. :)

    Summary

    This work began as an answer to the question: what would actually prompt a Viera to leave their woods behind and venture into the wider world? Especially if they truly believe in the Green Word and everything it stands for?

    Join me on this deep dive into Viera culture as I imagine it, and the twists and turns it takes the author on. The journey starts with Aruna, a kit just at the cusp of presenting and discovering their gender, and many stories are told to me by them and those around them. Stories of the past, stories of the present, stories of the people.

    Hearken, Viera, to Word of the Green
    From Mountains to Jungles and all in between
    By grace of the Woods we are living today
    By grace of the Woods, in the Woods we shall stay

    Summary

    Past life memories can be inconvenient, especially when they’re awakened on accident by meddling gods. Past life memories that give you just enough information to be dangerous to the various bad guys, but not enough to act on that without risking a lot of lives with unknown gains? Inconvenient, stressful, and not great for sleep.

    Once, I was Tanya of Earth, a relatively new fan of Final Fantasy 14 after I got introduced to the story by Shadowbringer. Now I’m Tomoyo the Raen, formally of Othard, now of the La Noscea archipelago. And now, I’m the Warrior of Light, best of a bunch of bad options according to the Mothercrystal.

    My knowledge is spotty, my axe is sharp, and I’ve got a drive to learn and a new appreciation for all things magic and weird. If only I’d spoiled myself on Endwalker instead of holding off hoping to play it after release.

    But hey, I’ve got my own chocobo. That’s got to count for something, right?

    [A ‘live’ reaction to FF14’s A Realm Reborn, with spoilers from up to 5.4 due to metaknowledge, as written shortly before the release of Endwalker.]
