new tale of the crystal

Entering hiatus until May 15

Finals are coming, I need to at least decrease my internet activity so I can spend more time with studying along with some real life stuff I gotta sort out. 

I’m on hiatus on Twitter as well but I’ll at least get on there every Saturday evening. Also I’ll still be working on the news blogs when I can.

Wish me luck!

Why the battle between Bhuni!Hope/Lightning is the fated battle between Mwynn/Bhunivelze.

According to the Fabula Nova Crystallis mythology, the thing that essentially kicked off the entire series was the conflict between Bhunivelze and Mwynn. For those of you who don’t know the mythology very well, I’ll briefly explain. Mwynn was Bhunivelze’s mother. He killed her in order to gain full control of the mortal world, and she ended up in the Unseen Realm. This is what caused Bhunivelze to create Pulse and Etro. He sought the door to the Unseen Realm so that he may find Mwynn as he believed she put a curse of death on the world.

However, when Bhunivelze realized he created Etro in his mother’s (Mwynn) image he discarded her and gave her no powers of her own. This is when he created Lindzei to replace Etro. This is what led Etro to tearing herself apart and disappearing into the Unseen Realm. Lindzei then used Etro’s spilled blood to create the first human, Yeul.

I’d like to point out that in XIII, Gods do not have what we think of as “emotions.” They can’t fully comprehend them, and the only deity who was able to somewhat sympathize with humans was Etro - as she became fond of humans and gave them each a piece of Chaos. The rest of the deities and Fal’Cie in the mythology do not express emotions to this degree. Bhunivelze’s primary function is the governance of life and order. He, and other Fal’cie throughout the series, are shown to use humans as tools to their ends. It’s a mechanical logic.

Under the cut I will go into some very important parallels that are represented during the final battle and the XIII series as a whole.

Where does it say he can’t speak without a body anywhere in the lore?

Forgot the scene where it says he spoke to her in his “ball” form.

That’s not what she meant, he can’t speak human language at all. When Hope’s soul was extracted from his body in the ending, he also lost his ability to speak and was only growling like an animal.

That scene was very similar to how Etro “spoke” to Lightning in that altar CGI cutscene in XIII-2. Lightning had Etro’s divine powers residing within her even before Bhunivelze gave her power, so she must have easily communicated with him.

HISTORY MEME ↦  two natural disasters ↦ (2/2) ↦ THE CRETE TSUNAMIS

"Slightly after daybreak, and heralded by a thick succession of fiercely shaken thunderbolts, the solidity of the whole earth was made to shake and shudder, and the sea was driven away, its waves were rolled back, and it disappeared, so that the abyss of the depths was uncovered and many-shaped varieties of sea-creatures were seen stuck in the slime; the great wastes of those valleys and mountains, which the very creation had dismissed beneath the vast whirlpools, at that moment, as it was given to be believed, looked up at the sun’s rays. Many ships, then, were stranded as if on dry land, and people wandered at will about the paltry remains of the waters to collect fish and the like in their hands; then the roaring sea as if insulted by its repulse rises back in turn, and through the teeming shoals dashed itself violently on islands and extensive tracts of the mainland, and flattened innumerable buildings in towns or wherever they were found. Thus in the raging conflict of the elements, the face of the earth was changed to reveal wondrous sights. For the mass of waters returning when least expected killed many thousands by drowning, and with the tides whipped up to a height as they rushed back, some ships, after the anger of the watery element had grown old, were seen to have sunk, and the bodies of people killed in shipwrecks lay there, faces up or down. Other huge ships, thrust out by the mad blasts, perched on the roofs of houses, as happened at Alexandria, and others were hurled nearly two miles from the shore, like the Laconian vessel near the town of Methone which I saw when I passed by, yawning apart from long decay."
