I DID.

FERAL CHAOS IS NOW MINE TO CONTROL.

OMG I ACTUALLY PULLED IT OFF.

TEAM (MOSTLY) GIRL POWER BEAT 000.

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

My thanks to:

Kain Highwind (who did more damage than I expected in the first round and showed that certain attacks can be dodged)
Yuna (who successfully whittled down FC's health to way down the halfway mark)
Lightning (who did her best, although with her attacks it was difficult to trap FC and keep him trapped)
Cloud of Darkness (who despite that her available attacks were the basic ones, managed to damage FC quite a bit, particularly with Anti-Air Beams)
Terra Branford (who finished him off and won the battle)

I reiterate:

SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

*EX MODE: GESTALT SHIPPER*

There's going to be quite a few ships here, some of which may or may not make any sense. *pulls out several champagne bottles* TIME TO LAUNCH ZE SHIPS! >8D

Lightshipping: Admittedly, I didn't care too much about WoL as a character before this rolled around. Then Lightshipping and 012 happened giving me the "HEY THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD BE ON TEAM WOL" visual promo. Then, there was Lightning being added on to the Cosmos roster. Having played (and beaten) XIII, I was already a huge Lightning fan and knowing her personality, was fully aware that some sparks would fly. In my RP with Railenthe, I usually play Lightning and have a blast doing so. Admittedly, this rp has her showing some of her vulnerable side but she's still dealing snark and bitchyness in equal measure. On a downer note, Lightshipping seems to be perfect Angst Bait. Me and Rai just. Can't. Stop. Brainstorming. Ways. To. Make. It. Worse.

Summoner's Knight: Admittedly this one came about rather suddenly and unexpectedly. The inspiration? A Laguna/Yuna prompt I put up myself. While I do like the canonship of Tidus and Yuna, the fangirl part of my brain decided that in Dissidia, Yuna needs to be with an older man! Obviously not Jecht, since he's more like a father/uncle figure to her, which leaves Laguna as the only other (and not entirely undesirable) option. Yuna's main class in X-2 pushed this line of thinking even further. It also helps that they work well as a team (I tend to pair my ships together when it comes to the assist system) in battle. And now as I write this I realize that some of Yuna's HP attacks share one similarity with Laguna's: two have beam/laser type attacks and a third causes a huge lightning explosion. That's right, these two like to blow stuff up! Also, the interaction with these two would likely have been adorable if not for SE leaving it at the Ship Tease stage.

PalaMecia: The oldest ship here, since it's been around since the first game. As Railenthe pointed out in her own entry, there's never any cutscene where the Emperor disrespects or is snarky towards Ultimecia, and for most of the plot, they're usually seen together. On a note of Fridge Brilliance, their alliance works out quite well: Mateus would control every aspect of existence, including time with Ultimecia at his side. Sure there's that not-so-little part with Time Compression but it's beside the point. Together, these two make for quite a glamorous and evil pair. Crowning proof that Evil is Sexy, everyone! 8D

Balanceshipping: Divine Foe Yay, anyone? The whole of Shade Impulse goes a long way to proving these two are a canon ship. Harmony and Discord are two sides of the same coin, same with Order and Chaos or Light and Darkness. Perhaps I was the only one with this impression at the conclusion of Destiny Odyssey but it seemed to me like Chaos did not hate Cosmos there. If he had, I doubt he would have obliged her wish and incinerated her so that her chosen could survive. Of course, we also have the plot to thank for the perpetual downer note that's attached to this ship no thanks to certain entities. Here's hoping that in the next installment these two get a happy ending. Maybe I'm the only one with this impression, but it seems to me both are tired of fighting each other, even if they don't let it on much. The mental image of Chaos hugging Cosmos with all four arms is ADORABLE IMHO

LockWind: Chapter 8 of 012. Halfway through Kain joins as Tifa's assist, this happening not long after Tifa dukes it out with Ultimecia who gives voice to Kain's shenanigans in the twelfth cycle. Despite all claims and evidence pointing to the truth, Tifa still chooses to believe in him and give him the benefit of the doubt though even then Kain doesn't get off scott-free; subtle guilttripping ensues! Admittedly I forgot exactly how Chapter 8 ended but Kain and Tifa's interactions throughout pretty much curbstomped the idea of any CloTi shipping in this game. It was also very refreshing to have her try her pep talk skills on someone who's NOT Cloud, IMO.

And that's my quota for now. Tbh I have no real problems with slash but I haven't found a pairing in Dissidia yet that would make me go "MOAR OF THAT PLZ", plus I keep running into yaoi everywhere Anyway, these are my ships and why I'm into them. Commentary is appreciated as always! 8D

After some thought, I've decided that my prefered faction would have to be Cosmos. It's true that they are the heroes and that it's usually a given for good to triumph over evil. On the other hand, it's somewhat unfair to the Chaos faction because you hardly get to view the conflict from their end. I could go on about this, but it's a subject for another day.

The Cosmos faction does provide a very good reason to cheer them on, however: they're actively trying to end the cycles and stop the fighting so that everyone can go home again. The Chaos faction on the other hand, intend to use the cycles to achieve their own ends, ones that may not even be that permanent as the world in DDFF is so unstable.

That is why I throw my support behind Team Cosmos; they're trying to save everyone--even the villains--by stopping the cycles that keep them trapped and forced to fight in an endless struggle for dominance.
