Here is the next part of the loooong discussion between myself and Holly Boson (@fireh9lly) in which Holly explains Final Fantasy VII to me, a total novice, in pitiless detail.
This episodes moves on from preparatory context to the basics of the game and its history, Holly’s textual approach to the game, and such subjects as Cloud Strife, fandom, shipping, etc.
Content warnings apply from this point on because some potentially troubling issues are mentioned.
Part 3 will be posted in advance of publication for my Patreon backers. https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4196618&fan_landing=true
