To Zanarkand

Countdown to rewrite: 32 days


It's fitting farewell to the A-to-Z challenge, I think. Possibly the saddest and most beautiful song I've ever heard, To Zanarkand actually comes from Final Fantasy X.

I think I have such fond memories of FFX because of the time in which I played it, and the symbolic nature of the story it had. Aside from the mediocre voice acting, it was a fantastic game. In the world of Spira, Zanarkand is a place that represents both a beginning and an end to the journey. It's the last destination for the summoners seeking the Calm, seeking freedom from Sin. 

And so, I bid adieu to the challenge and all of the extra stress, and fun, it held for me. Thanks for making it great. :)

Peace.

    1. I love pretty much everything by Uematsu. His work is brilliant.

      And thank you... it was getting rough. I'm proud to have finished it in one piece.
