Comment on Immortal Resolve

  1. '"You've been mucking around in my business for months, sir. Why stop now?"' fuckin snerk Cor, that mouth on you.
    'he sort of wanted to shake the man's hand and punch him in the dick all at once' i mean we can all relate to this surely
    '""I'm proud of you," ' i'm gooier than a melted marshmallow at this line.
    '"But the west part of the City is so posh!"' Mama Leonis is such a sweetpea. protect her x 1000. I like that her lucidity changes throughout the story too! Her relationship with her son is perf and explains his stoic nature really well. The grief when he hears of her death? i will drown in my own tears.
    Speaking of, THE BEADS. I was really hoping you'd cover who and what and where! It makes Cor giving up (ish) his blade to Gladio during his episode so much more significant, too. (I wrote these comments as I read and then you flippin went there anyway, hah.)

    Clarus being sympathetic, but not so sympathetic as to embarass him, is adorable. I love their friendship here. It develops so nicely.

    Okay, so Cor's fighting style. I spent *hours* in game trying to work out how he was doing it. So glad that I'm not alone here! It's something really special. I love how it's not till after he's gone through Some Shit that he develops this fighting style.

    'his face showed a great deal of confusion and further cemented the worksexual assessment. ' He's so innocent and pure! LETS CHANGE THAT

    'the eyes of a human met him as his blade pierced the shell of the mech, driving down into the chest of the man behind it.' Oh no, there goes that innocence... MTs are easily the most horrific thing SE have ever thrown at us.

    Regis and Cor's back and forth after his first real battle is hilarious. Cor's so matter of fact about what he's just done. I guess he has to be, what with his "don't think" mantra.

    'Someday, someday he'd have an awesome beard.' AHGASHGDSAF this line made me laugh way too hard. Yeah, Cor, you show them follicles who's boss.
    His ever-shrinking trousers and ever-lengthening legs! crikey Cor you don't need to worry about MTs when you have puberty to battle. Between that and your voice breaking you're in for trouble.

    The conversation about the loss of the war is so natural, and everyone feels like it's so inevitable! Why do I feel like Weskham's given that "you sweet boy" look before. And Cor's maybe angry not just because Weskham's staying, but because he has so few people in his life and poof, there goes another one. Same as with Cid?

    I really like that you've covered why Cid and Reggie break up their friendship. It's sort of glossed over in game IIRC. This fits really neatly.

    Regis and Cor's friendship is SO GOOD. i can't put into words, I love them together here. Ps congrats this makes me wanna ship Corgis. You're an enabler.

      Too much to comment on specifically! I'll just talk about Mama Leonis, I love that woman, I tried to make it seem like she came and went, mentally, throughout the story, and during certain times her needs were quite clear and then others she was just like 'idk what's going on'. And yeah, I love the idea of that I sort of wanted it to be that Gilgamesh sort of took everything from Cor (when he didn't even believe he had much), and the way he built himself after that made him who he was in the future/now.

      Iaijutsu is real, but Cor definitely does 'anime iaijutsu', and it seems like the animators rarely had him take the sword out all the way, it's super cool though.

      I love all the older gen men just being so much in love, not necessarily sexual, just... those boys saw some shit the same way Noct's posse did, so I love that they love each other, and when I write them I need to show them that way.
