- Yeul (FFXII-2)
"Summer disappears like a dream I had; and winter comes with a knife and it cuts you down. [ Oh it never ends, it never ends ]"

I will never ever be able to recreate that icon, and it's probably one of my favorite icons to date-- just wit the feel, the angle, the little light circle that is very gently wrapped around Yuel, the cloud covering and how the colour blends in seamlessly with Yuel.



This entire icon, the song-- oh the song. This is an icon from another game that I really could not care less about, but I loved the Caius and Yuel side story, and the purpose and how he was trying to save her and how it paralleled Serah and Noel's story in a nutshell, I can't really say anymore then that-- but I think that Yuel's entire story is one of 'not being forgotten' and so the song, it really fits.

Man, I still wish I could recreate this icon.
alwaysbeenasmiler: (Laguna☆We became the parade)
So this is something new that I am gonna do-- I'm going to post one of my icons, and then sort of go on why I chose the song to be the basis of my icon; (since music inspires most of what I do in life-- and back when I RPed regularly, oh gods-- the music)

Default icon - - Laguna Loire | Final Fantasy VIII



Secret-- I actually dislike Final Fantasy VIII.

But you know, characters are important to me, and while playing the game I came soon across the saving grace of that game and one character who has remained one of my favorite characters of all time. I was immediately drawn to him because man, he was just unfailingly cheerful and good natured, albeit clumsy and a bit shy, but that was what made me love him, and the moment that Squall went "I dreamt I was an Idiot", well I just fell head over heels in love with him even more. Because of Laguna's integral placement in the game, I found myself playing through it-- I mean the only character in the main party that I really liked was Selphie (and maybe Edea as well-- because misunderstood villians)

When I created this icon, it was right when the Dissidia Duecodiem art came out, and I found out that Laguna was going to be in it. ICON AHOY! And the song came to me because I wanted something to sort of represent him, and this song really hit

"At least we meet on no man's land-- just footprints in the sand
We meet on no man's land, at last"


I mean I know that Squall accused Laguna of not being a great dad, but I believe without a shadow of a doubt that Laguna tried his hardest-- but situations spiralled out of control, and he had so much to do-- and responsibility just got thrust on him (as such is the case with all capricorns, responsibility hunts them down with a giant gun, shooting to kill). But this song, it's about forgiveness-- the eight letters, three words, one meaning stands for "I am sorry", and I truly believe that at the very end they were able to re-conciliate, and that makes me happy.

Perfect song for Laguna.
