Part 23: Episode XIX: Send My Spirit

Well... That got kind of dark last time... Umm... What's the DEAL with Blitzballs being extremely buoyant? I mean, that seems like the exact thing you wouldn't want an underwater sport's ball of choice to do...? Eh...? Eh?


Music: Wandering Flame

"I kept hoping it would work in reverse, too."

"I was in a foreign world, I wasn't going home. This was my new reality, and I was stuck in it for good."

Welcome to scenic Kilika Island. Cruise prices just suddenly got a whole lot cheaper.

The S.S. Liki docks at Kilika Port and Yuna runs off the boat...

A pair of villagers run over to greet Yuna...

"M'lady Summoner!"
"Talk about perfect timing! Haha...ha..heh...meeeeeeeeh..."

"If there is no other summoner here, please allow me to perform the sending."
"Thanks be to ye!"
"Our loved ones... We feared they would become fiends!"
"Please, take me to them."

The villagers lead Yuna further into the village. Lulu and Kimahri follow closely behind...

Wakka and the rest of the Aurochs run off to do nothing of note. All the dead from Sin's attack have already been fished out of the ocean. Folks in Spira seem to be depressingly adept at performing that task...

Tidus heads in the direction of Yuna and the others...

"Cuz I really gotta go #2 before we head off..."
*groan* "Is Wakka not available to entertain your buffoonery?"
"So... that's a 'no'...?"

"I did drown for a few minutes just a couple hours ago... Cut me some slack, lady."
"The dead need guidance."

"Filled with grief over their own death, they refuse to face their fate. They yearn to live on, and resent those still alive. You see, they envy the living. And in time, that envy turns to anger, even hate."
"Oh, I know this one. And then that leads to... suffering. Right?"

"Sad, isn't it?"
"So the monsters we've been killing are like... pissed off ghosts of dead people...? Why would dead people turn into like a big dog or a fish full of grenades?! Why is everything is Spira so WEIRD?!"
"...As I was saying."

"The sending takes them to the Farplane, where they may rest in peace."
"Now what's a 'Farplane'...? Is it like some sort of airship?"
*sighs* "It is something you will need to relentlessly question another about."
"'kay... So this Sending thing..."

"Summoners do this?"

So this next scene of Yuna performing the Sending is rather iconic. Insofar that it is the logo of Final Fantasy X. Therefore, I'll ask you jerks to go ahead and watch the following video...
