OMFG I JUST REALIZED I NEVER TYPE IN ALL CAPS BUT HOLY **** WHAT IF YOU CAN FLY IN FFXIV1/1?!!?!
That'd be sick. I think this world does have something to do with Vanadiel. It's not all the same characters and it's not the same place on the planet, but the races shown hint at it being on the same planet, maybe a different time. I think FFX-2 was more of an expansion pack to FFX (a sequel, yes but wasn't it the same main characters?).
I will wake up at six a.m. again.
and I will find my way to the front door
like a soldier crawling through the smoking carnage.
smoldering bodies at my feet,
I'd love to stick around, but I've got someone to meet.
and I will put my best foot forward.
and I'll thank god I made it out of there
on the day when my new friends come.
