Okay, don't get too excited. This is just a final follow-up thank-you chapter, for everyone who read and helped. So here goes:
(Just pretend they're scrolling, like movie credits.)
A gracious vote of thanks goes to all of my reviewers for making my first fic in FFX section actually become a hit. A special vote of thanks goes to the following people, who have reviewed from the beginning:
I also wish to point out Deplora, who not only badgered me into updates and made sure I actually finished this, but she also bought FFX and started playing it, just so that she could read this fic. Ain't she a sweetie?
Another special thanks goes to JaguarKitty2006, who gave me Lulu's French when I needed it.
And, for your enjoyment, here are a few tidbits, factoids, and little secrets about my story, things that I've hidden around:
Tidus' last name, Reina, is actually my grandmother's maiden name. Yuna's last name, Bamarre, is a fictional place in a book The Two Princesses of Bamarre. Cute book. Lulu's last name I pulled from a movie, Ladyhawke because the woman's name was Isabeau d'Anjou, and I needed a French name for her anyway. Rikku's last name, however, I pulled out of my hair. Really, I have no idea where that name even came from!
Lefties are, or were, considered evil in Italy because the word for "left" is "sinistere," and you can guess where that led people. I think a reviewer guessed this, but I don't want to go back over all of those reviews just to see who.
Yuna's projects throughout the story were the same ones I was working on at the time.
Yuna's dog, Ursa, is an Akita.
Tidus' cats, Ace and Gadget, are named after two dogs I know, a wolfhound and a Shi-Tzu. The other two cats, Hermes and Marid, are named after my best friends pet rats, who I was babysitting at the time. (Hi, Boys!)
My friends and I pulled off the "Don't Judge Me" costume one day, totally randomly, which is where I got the idea from.
The number of the D.M.A.S unit that Tidus and Wakka spent part of their spring break at is 9902-10, which stands for the Final Fantasy X project. When you turn on the game, there is a sign beneath the logo that says, "Final Fantasy X Project. 1999-2002." Therefore, the years '99 and '02 are the years for 10. Get it?
The Ronso are kind of based on various Native American tribes.
Yuna's horror story from Spring Break is an actual story told to me by my Spanish teacher. I almost peed my pants laughing when she told it to us.
And, finally, here is the news that you have all been waiting for! I have decided that I will at some point to a sequel. It, too, will be based mostly on Tidus and Yuna, but will have some other couples in it. I don't know when I will find the time to do it, but it'll get done!
