Status + Notes:

Mission Accomplished. The Blue Planet is no more for the After Years... well except for my side run, but that's another story. Really, this tale, and yes I'll call it a tale, is a catch up tale for people who didn't import data in. Otherwise its just kind of a big exploring side quest with some fun plot along the way. I do believe I hit all the bestiary entries I needed, but if I didn't I kept a save file here on the Blue Planet... and of course I'm going to have to do a side run soon to get the entries for all the eidolons and antlions. Shouldn't take too long.

My goal for today is to make some headway into the Lunar Subterrane, and probably do some work on the side run as well.

Spoiler Alert... Sarcastic Plot Developments of the Day:

Eblan is on FIRE!!! No, I don't mean it hit 3 baskets in a row. I mean Ifrit is here and setting things ablaze. We're forced to head to the two towers and kill some Melt Golems so we can get into the throne room. Once there we take on Ifrit, but apparently tactically we are unprepared so we have to RUN AWAY!!!! Edge then mans up.. he's preparing for 40 after all and tries to take on Ifrit alone... this does nothing except give Edge another hallucination of Rubicante. Rydia joins in on this trip and after Rubicante uses his mighty Inferno on us, we learn to use it as a band. So, Ifrit comes once again and after we cast Inferno on him he knows we mean business. And by business, I mean that the plot says that we can actually finish the fight this time. So, after being very careful not to actually kill him, he snaps out of his Blue Hair induced stupor and recognizes Rydia and magically all the fire goes away.

Next, we head to Mysidia, where all the mages are taking a nap... no, no, Ramuh is just flying around having fun throwing thunderbolts at everyone... So, we have to teach him a lesson. The lesson being how to do very patient dps while keeping everyone alive... after Rydia survives a Judgment Bolt and a thunder spell directed at her... Ramuh decides to wake up and join us as well. After he does we head to the Elder's house where Porom has been using up all her energy keeping the place shut from Ramuh. She is now spent and therefore can't fight with us... or can she?

So, we fly down to Agart. Who do we run into here, but Miss Blue Hair! She has no use for this planet., so she sends Titan at us... to no surprise we fight him...  but don't want to kill him. Eventually we see that he gonna bury us with a Gaia's Wrath induced earthquake... except Pink Hair to the rescue. Porom shows up out of nowhere and casts Float on us. She passes out, so we let her lie there while we take on Titan again. This time, we successfully don't kill him, and he joins Rydia.

Finally, we head to Damcyan, where the Antlions have taken over... well everywhere but the throne room, where Harley wants to come along with us to Baron so she can check on Edward. Edge doesn't agree... so the chancellor says she should go too. Apparently, no one in Damcyan wants Harley around. Edge agrees this time, but because she is a lowly secretary she's not allowed to fight, and has to stay on the airship.... Get in the kitchen and make me a pie woman!!!! Well, that's what he'd say if the Falcon had a kitchen.

We return to Mist where we learn that the children of Mist have used their meager summoning powers to keep the Dragon safe and out of Miss Blue Hair's hands all this time, and now that it is time to take back the planet, the mist coalesces and the Dragon returns to Rydia's summon menu.

While all this planet hopping has been going on. Ceodore, Kain, Rosa, Edward, and Cid have been storming the castle in Baron. Kain decides to take Cecil on 1-on-1. Things go well, until Cecil breaks out the Unknown Move of Doom!!!! This brings Kain to his knees, but he's fine. Next, he taunts Ceodore, asking him if he'd really draw his sword on his own father. Apparently the answer is yes... yes he would. At this point, Edge's crew busts in to the throne room. Kain instantly recognizes the Man In Black as Golbez... and its on vs. Cecil. Miss Blue Hair summons Odin to help Cecil out... except Odin does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but stand there while we beat on Cecil. After Cecil gets beaten up enough, Odin calls out to his children, and says he'd never hurt them... and puts Cecil on his rear.

Miss Blue Hair tires of this and takes us on herself. We survive the onslaught of Leviathan and Bahamut she sends at us... ya know, cause we've gone through challenge dungeons, and eventually succumbs... However, Miss Blue Hair #2 & #3 show up and use the Dimensional Elevator to head to the moon. Luca wants to follow her in an arirship... however, apparently she hasn't had her physics classes yet, and doesn't understand gravity. However, Golbez reminds us that the Lunar Whale is parked right outside Baron... What do you mean it wasn't there this whole time?!?!? Obviously we just didn't notice it sitting there... even if it is a giant spaceship...

So, we take off for the moon, and guess what. All the people we found who had to rest on the Falcon have all magically recovered... all at exactly the same time. How convenient!!!! Everyone is concerned about Cecil. He doesn't seem to have full control of himself, and Kain calls him an empty shell.

What did Miss Blue Hair do to him, and what will we find on this strange moon?!?!?
