Hi there, this is my first ever fanfic. As a side note, each of these oneshots occupies a different timeline. For example, the joke on Tidus can't exist alongside Paine's first reaction. You'll see what I mean when I write them.

To start out with a bang, heeeeeerrrrreeeeeee's

Y'know, Yunie, I guess we should have told her Earlier.

It was a great day. The sun was shining over Spira, Vegnagun had just been defeated- and Tidus was coming back.

"Higher, Brother!" Yuna yelled.


"Faster, Brother!"


They were almost there… Besaid! Up ahead! And was that?

Yuna leapt out of the Celsius and-

"SHUYIN! YOU"LL PAY!" Paine jumped out of the airship right before Yuna did, and pulled out her sword. "THIS IS FOR EVERYONE IN THE CRIMSON SQUAD!", she screamed.

"Wh-wha-?" Tidus materialized his Caladabolg immediately. Paine struck him for 2567 damage.

"Hey! I don't know who you are, or why you're attacking me, but if it's a fight you want…" Tidus said, and lashed out for 5608 damage.

"Ugh! Like you can forget! Hyah!"

"STOP IT!" Yuna blasted her guns upwards, and yelled.

"Y-Yuna!" Tidus exclaimed, "I-I'm so glad to see you!"

"THE ONE TIME YOU GOT HER NAME RIGHT, HUH!" shouted Paine furiously. "WHY I OUGHTA"-

BLAM! "Will you two stop so that I can explain!" Yuna yelled, "This is Tidus and he-"

"Wait, what?"

"He's… or he was my Guardian. He sort of, well, disappeared for the last two years,"

"Oh. Sorry about that. Tidus, right? My name's Paine"

"It's okay. But why me?"

"You look exactly like the guy who massacred my friends,"

"Holy- There's a guy in the world who looks exactly like me?"

"Long story, Tidus. Think of it as Meister Seymour coming back," Yuna said.

"Ouch. Well, I don't blame ya,"

"Yunie? I guess we should have told her earlier…"

"I kinda agree. I mean, she did attack me,"

"Hey, if Paine's this bad, I wonder what Gippal and the others would do..." Rikku muttered to herself.

Ominous ending!
