[ A/N - I can't top what he put, not by a long shot. But this idea of what I'm about to place here came to me last night. I got to thinking should I put up something that may have happened since I was never really here for a true Christmas party? Or should I go with something more realistic? So I chose to write what would come natural to what I think a 27 year old woman would experience if she was indeed away from her children and loved ones on a very special day. Well that, and it's always fun playing a mean drunk ;D ]
Somewhere next to nowhere in particular…
A time meant to be set aside for family and friends. A time to be selfless and generous. A time…
“oh to hell with it! Seriously, since when have I ever thought of myself? Is it really all that wrong of me to want to be left alone!?” the dark haired woman’s outburst not only took herself by surprise, but by the well rounded bear of a man tending the bar she’d randomly walked into several hours before. The sudden string of words had been building however. Not since she’d started to nurse the watered down drink that set within inches of her nervous hands. No, it’s been building for several years. But for some ungodly reason it had to come out at that particular moment. And to a stranger none the less!
With a heavy sigh, Tifa looked down into the dark pooled liquid collected into the farthest depths of the untouched glass keeping her gaze away from the questioning one of the barkeeps.
…just go away man! I really didn’t mean for you to hear it
Chancing a glance, she managed to straighten her vision upright to see if he was still looking. Another sigh, this time internally, luckily he’d lost interest in the brunettes pathetic attempt at conversation and had once again went back to mining the tasks of wiping down a tray of freshly washed shot glasses.
…gah, that was a close one.
Then again, she figured it was better for her ill-gotten confession to fall on his ears and not one that she’d known personally. No, that would have been a disaster. Still, she couldn’t help but wonder just what did happen this past Christmas without her? No doubt Cloud never made it back to the bar to even acknowledge her existence. Or the fact of what day had past him by. Denzel & Marlene were still happily camping out with Cid and Shera in Rocket Town. And as for everyone else? Hmm….
Shrugging the thoughts of them off came a bit easier with each sip of rum. The longer she drank, the further she slipped from reality…
“this…this is nice. Hmm…” muttering to herself, Tifa once more lied to herself. She didn’t truly want to be left alone. But more so, her bullheaded anger got the better of her. A pride like hers, mixed with a bit of alcohol and years of pent of aggression however, it could cloud anyone’s judgment. Especially hers.
Eh, maybe. Why not? Guys game for talking Tifa back to coming home? Up to you. But that was fun. I like Tifa being a mean drunk. And I could see her being the quiet mean one since she’s the exact opposite of that when she’s sober. Anyways, sorry it came a day late. Had to deal with family. Ah, but it’s up at least.
Go out there and give them Hell! You were born to do this!
Reno: Yo. What's up people?

Tifa Lockhart: Someone should have warned me before sitting down to watch Kingsglaive. Now all I can think about is Nyx Nyx Nyx ! Dammit Nyx! Well him, and Crowe. I adore the hell out of her. Too bad they...nah I wont' say

Reno: Kingsglaive? Oh god that fucking movie. Nothing in that movie was ever mentioned in the game. At least I don't think it was. I played it a year ago and remember thinking, "IS ANYBODY GONNA MENTION NYX?! NO?! WELL FUCK YOU THEN!"

Reno: Also, FF15 was shaping up to be my favorite FF of all time. Then the second half happened and squandered all the potential it had for its story and lore. I could see how it was originally going to be 3 games.

Tifa Lockhart: Yeah I agree about the 2nd half fully fucking everything over, but I still follow Robbie and tune into their podcast when they stream live. It was funny as hell to watch all the VA's get together and play their own game. Especially Adam(c)

Tifa Lockhart: Screaming, "That's it! I've come up with a new recipe!" Well that, and they all sang Stand By Me towards the end. That was really bittersweet. But anyways,glad you're not dead ;p lol hell of a greeting but it's true

Tifa Lockhart: Oh yeah, duh. There are ties but they are very scarce throughout the playthrough of XV that ties Kingsglaive into it. I don't want to say too much, but the next time you get to the point that Noct is back in the throne room towards the end? Look up. That
Nov 7, 2017 13:51:08 GMT -5
Tifa Lockhart: is quite possibly the worst tie to Kingsglaive they could have given. But there are also others too. I fucking hate letter limits, but yeah it's there. Just have to look for them

Cloud Strife: That's always the problem with trying to create an expanded universe before you've even established rule 1 about it... Gotta let me get to know your world before it's got eight different "source" materials.

Trever Valens: Can't believe people still stop in around here. Hope everyone's doing well!

Tifa Lockhart: So I finally got around to pre-ordering the remake and it was funny cuz I go into gamestop talking about all these other games and I randomly walk up to the register and whip out my Darth Vader (yeah i know) debit card and say cheerfully,

Tifa Lockhart: "I'm here to put money down on my baby" The guy looks at me like i'm trippin' which most of the time I am. But I got the 80 buck one, not the most expensive although if i would have waited on my damn taxes I could have easily afforded

Sephiroth: Naw, the $329.00 was a Square-Enix online store exclusive that sold out within hours of going up for pre-order, so the $80 deluxe edition is the "best" version we can get at this point without paying disgusting premiums by resellers.

Tifa Lockhart: Then it's a good thing I wasn't so beat up over not getting it. I'm good having the 80 dollar one honestly. Just so long as I get my own PS 4 before April whatever the date is, i'm good because sharing the one downstairs is not gonna work for as many hours

Tifa Lockhart: *as I'm most likely going to invest in it
