Valentione's Day Fast Approaches! (01/30/2008)

Attention, all adventurers!
The time has come to spill your guts to that person closest to your heart!
That's right. Valentione's Day cometh, kupo!

As in past years, the Mog House Management Union is planning to hold the traditional chocolate exchanging event for the enamored youth of all nations.
And it goes without saying that we'd like the help of all you intrepid adventurers out there, kupo!
Hm? You're a young'un too, you say?
Well, in that case, couple up and get it done, kupo!

Why are you all balled up in the corner there? Have you been crying, kupo?

What's that? You envy us Moogles for being so giving and unselfish?
And you find you can't sleep at night when you think of the fast-approaching Valentione's Day?
I'm not quite sure I follow, kupo. Is it because you're nervous?

L-leave it to me, kupo!
Moogle is going to make it all better. Moogle is going to make the hurt go away.
I've been out asking Vana'diel's adventurers all about the upcoming Valentione's Day, and I've amassed some pretty enthusiastic responses. Give us a listen, kupo!

Alright, Master!
First, just hear what some fellow Vana'diellers have to say, kupo!
And remember, I'm pulling for you, Master! May it be a truly memorable Valentione's Day for you, whether it be as sweet as heart chocolate, or as bitter as Goblin chocolate!

Ms. L (Hume, female) Diabolos

I'm farming crawler cocoons.
My betrothed gave me the most beautiful ring before we unexpectedly...parted ways. So in return I'm going to make him a swanky silk robe.
I'm planning to give it to him on Valentione's Day, at the exact spot where we first met.

Despite my pleas to the contrary, I know in my heart of hearts that he probably won't come.
But he is the only one out there for me...

Ms. J (Elvaan, female) Remora

People always seem to get the wrong idea. We're just friends!
Sure, he's a nice guy, but... Well, he's a great paladin, and we all know how hard those are to find.
I just feel You know, when I'm in a party with him.
Like just a few days ago, he rescued me from a really sticky situation.
I figure the least I can do to show my appreciation is give him a couple of chocolates on Valentione's Day...

What? Seriously, it doesn't go any farther than that. What!? Stop it! No seriously, stop it.

Mr. H (Tarutaru, male) Shiva

When Valentione's Day finally gets here, I'm supposed to deliver some message this G.G. guy in my linkshell gave me to some girl. Where'd I put that thing, anyway...? Ah, here it is.
To "S." it says. Apparently her name starts with an "S." G.G. is a junk food addictaru, always raiding the Auction House for cookie-wookies. So one day he checks the auction history and finds out that it's this "S." who has been whipping up all the cookies he loves.
He says he has seen her around town a few times, but can't bring himself to talk to her...

Oh, and here we go—this is rich. "I want to eat your cookies."
Sounds like he's just hungry...
Not the most articulataru guy in the linkshell, but what can you do,right? That's love for you.

Still, all the hype has even gotten me nervous. I'm palpi-walpitating.

Ms. M (Mithra) Valefor

Even now, I can rrremember it like it was yesterday...
Joshing with each other as we stumbled our way around Jeuno.
Chasing one another around the Altepa Desert on our chocobos.
Going crrrazy on the beaches of Bibiki Bay under a firework-filled sky.
Whenever I look back, it seems C. was always at my side...

And we squandered it all, went our separate ways over a childish rrrivalry.
Now there's another girl by his side, laughing with him.
Like they say, you don't know what you got till it's gone...

But it's almost Valentione's Day, and love is in the air.
So I've made up my mind.
If I'm ever lucky enough to be visited by love again, I won't let it get away.

Mr. K (Galka) Gilgamesh

One Valentione's Day, I...I just couldn't do it. I tried to work up the nerve on more than one occasion, but to no avail. I let her get away without ever telling her how I felt....
So I threw myself into a rampage of blood, sweat, and honor, destroying any enemy who dared stand before me in Assault, Pankration, and any other venue of battle I could find!
But I've come to the painful realization that I cannot escape this perpetual longing, no matter how much I kill...

So that's it! No more! I shall turn this pining into raw bravery! And this Valentione's Day I will tell her how I feel, whether she likes it or not!
