This is... her story?

Lately, I've been going on a little GiantBomb chat. My new friend, Symphony, invited me. <3 I haven't been talking much... I'm still me, after all. But it's nice to feel somewhat part of something. Even if just barely...

Anyways, last night, Symphony was talking about Dissidia: Final Fantasy (a fighting game with Final Fantasy characters in it), and how it would be better with more characters in it. They only put in one 'hero" and one 'villain" from each of the main (aka numbered) games. I don't know much about the game, having only watched the Quick Look, but looking at the list of characters, I'd have to agree. She was saying there should at least be two playable protagonists and antagonists from each game. For instance, they have Tidus from Final Fantasy X , when she believed that Yuna was just as much of a main character.

And then, it hit me. Final Fantasy X really is Yuna's story. It's Yuna's story through Tidus' eyes. And though I didn't realize it, the game may have inspired me in that way. In the Timeline, I have a set of 10 stories which are focusing on the current group of elemental princesses/priestesses through the eyes of their respective protectors. There's a father, a brother, a neighbor, and so on... though most of them are love interests. But though the stories are told from the first-person POV of the male characters, they are really about the female characters, and the different sorts of relationships the princess and her protector can have.

So, I just thought I'd share a little insight (Haha.) on a different way to tell a story.
