Final Fantasy 9

(0) Garnet glanced closely at the man who was about to become her husband. He grinned back at her, and stared deep into her emerald-green eyes. Sloppy or what? (Kimberley Wilson, Age 13 to 18, 11/13/2002 1:36:38 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(1) yep thats slopy. ( , Parent, 1/20/2003 5:33:53 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(2) well let's get this party started.But tomorrow.K (Morgain & Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 3/1/2003 9:30:38 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(3) Garnet didn't like what she saw.thae man looked strong and cabable of muder,perfect if he was to survive being her husband,but he looked faintly like a donkey.Garnet,who had all through their first meeting came up with fun names to fit his disreption,had kept up the look of happy eager bride,apploded herself for being as good an actress as she was,else she would have either punched him in the face,or he would have misteriously dissapeared one day.Of course she,the grief stricken fiance would not be blamed if such an incidant did accure.But truth of the matter was,killing someone was such a messy busniess,all that blood and such,so she had sighed and given the idea up.In her oppinion the oly good thing about him was the accent in his last name.The man was o terribly boring,she was often tempted to follow the example of that smart artist, and cut off her own ears.She had a sneeky feeling that he had done this not to be a better painter,but so he wouldn't have to listen to people talk so much.But she was fond of her ears so she dismised this plan to.Shebore it out bravley,and with a great deal more restraint than she would have thought of herself.Why couldn't she get out of it:easy,to many lives at stake(some she was willing to leae to the consequenses.but just couldn't.they owed her money)to much money.she was threatened.And there were things she could not risk.she prayed for someone to take her away,someone with some zest.She did not expect to get her wish. (Brigid & Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 3/2/2003 5:53:09 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(4) But then a man named James came along with good looks,bravery and smarts and he took to Garnet's liking.Unfortuntely,this man,James was the younger brother (let's name him Ephram)of Ephram.Slowly,as Ephram began to see Garnet's liking to his younger brother(younger by two years)and grew with jealousy and envy of his younger brother James,that he felt his ego was exploding.Oh yes,Ephram would do something so disdainful that he would regret.James was just there to help beat the very evil spirts since he was as well a sorcerer and a very handsome one at that. Garnet was also some kind of mystical witch and Ephram was just this wizard who as they say looked so much like a donkey,was just this man who had bad consiousness. So,James,Ephram and Garnet were the only one's living in the house,which could pass for almost a mansion,beacuse the brothers were incredible wealthy,but not by much.Ephram and Garnet had their room, while James had his own,but one day.... (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 3/22/2003 5:19:55 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(5) Hey Brigid,sorry about making Ephram a wizard,when you said he was an artist.I was'nt reading everything here except paragraph 0 of course. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 3/27/2003 5:06:17 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(6) I said he was an artist.(short laugh)i don't know what on earth i'm doing half the time so dont worry about it (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 3/31/2003 9:21:43 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(7) Thanks for being carefree,i guess,Brigy. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 4/17/2003 4:25:14 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(8) They started walking up the altar and looked at the man. She screamed "I can't marry that ugly beast." She ran off the altar all the way to Alexandria. (Chase, Age 8 to 12, 4/28/2003 9:54:55 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(9) (start fom #4)Garnet heaved a huge sigh.she was extremly annoyed and with good reason.Which in her case was a change.She impatiently blew a copper colored curl from her face with a scowl.She listened to her wedding planner drone on and on about trivial things like flowers,baloons,and (in her oppinion the most irritating of all details so far)whether the chairs should be shaped like swans or ducks.Garnet personally thouht there should be one swan becouse if the wedding planner (aria) were going to be there then she'd need more space than anybody else becose she was so fat (wider than she was tall) that she would need a sturdier chair becouse she would most likly kill the ducks if she sat on them.garnet told Aria this and the Planner waddled from the room in tears.Leaving a ll the wedding plans just lying around.Garnet felt no guilt.The woman was cold and cruel and had been absolutly intolorable from the moment she arrived.Garnet loked at all the plans littering the floor and all her ladies in waiting (who ephram had hired to help her in his household)sitting in a corner of the room twittering at her for what she just did.She growled at them and the quickly turned away and didn't make another sound.And then one of then one of the woman caught her eye.She was the same size and shape as Garnet.Her hair the same color.with a little work,Garnet thought viciously,who would be able to tell the difference when she was wearing a veil.And with a couple of changes with the guest list,which Aria had thoughtfully left behind(along with a couple more objects that would give everyone a shock when the were put into action at the wedding).And with distractions and a stand in,it would be an absolute pity if Garnet couldn't leave.Garnet smiled and then sobered."Girl!Yes you come here.And stop looking as if your about to have a heart attack" She snapped at the trembling girl,which only made her tremble harder.Garnet rolled her eyes.she only had a week to turn this weak trembling creature into a sutable Princess Garnet of Theandria....soon to be Wife of King Ephram.Or as she liked to call him,King Donkey boy (Brigid & Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 5/3/2003 10:13:04 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(10) 4,9,then 8.It makes more since that way (Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 5/4/2003 4:57:16 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(11) I personally think it's Zidane...(The real man of the story),but no matter.Go on. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 6/13/2003 3:30:44 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(12) (Oh Brigid and Morgain,i think you know what i mean if you played the game.) (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 6/13/2003 3:32:13 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(13) I think i would.What kind of name is Zidane for gods sake (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 6/18/2003 10:12:09 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(14) well i suppose it's just as bad as Donkey Boy.Where on earth... (Morgain, Age 13 to 18, 6/19/2003 1:05:54 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(15) I was out of options.If i had put any of my other suggestions down u would have conked me on the head.But donky boy does lack a certain....dignaty.(shakes head hoplessly) (Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 6/19/2003 1:08:09 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(16) (look at each other)Zidane then.That would definantly work better (Morgain & Brigid, Age 13 to 18, 6/19/2003 1:09:56 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(17) Excuse me, Morgain, Brigid, but um...I don't understnad what's going on. Garnet is supposed to marry King Ephram, or rather King Donkey Boy. Or is he Zidane?? And is there is or is there not a James?? Is King Eprham a painter or a magician?? And di she meet a girl who looks just like her? I'll write in the story once I get my facts straight. (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 8/3/2003 8:58:05 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(18) Oh sorry for us confusing you Sophian,but we think we will change it because this story is based on a video game for Playstation 2 and i forgot that...anyway we are starting from the point that she falls for a man named Zidane and then we all will add our thoughts to make the story advance.Well let's continue from when she married Zidane,k?Hope this clarifies it. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 8/8/2003 1:18:39 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(19) She marries Zidane not Ephram??? And is there a James?? But is there another girl who looks like her??? (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 8/10/2003 9:09:21 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(20) There is no Ephram or James here.Just right now,it'll be Garnet and Zidane marrying and then we will add more characters. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 8/28/2003 9:46:00 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(21) Okay. Garnet and Zidane, she falls in love with him. No other characters? Sorry if I'm not true to the video game...I don't know the game that you're talking about. Okay.....I'll start writing now........................Garnet stared at her surroundings. "Wow," she breathed. This was very different from her home. There was a huge statue of the greek god, Posiden. Zidane's house was very close to the sea. Her room had a wonderful view of the ocean. She decided to give herself a tour of the house. She walked to the other side of the vast hall, and in doing do, nearly knowcked over a maid who was carrying the dirty dishes from the afternoon's tea. She looked like she could use some help, so garnet said, "Here, I'll carry some." The young girl looked terrified. "Oh no, miss, that is all right." she said, looking flustered. She bobbed a curtsy, or rather tried to, because with a stack of dishes in her hands, it was rather difficult. Garnet smiled, and said, "No, really, I want to help." As she spoke she lifted half of the stack into her own hands.Th maid, releived of at least half of her burden, sighed in releif. But she looked around quickly to see whether Madame was around. "What's the matter?" Garnet asked, smiling. "Well, it is not....seemly for a young woman of your station to be..." "Don't be silly." Garnet said, laughing. "Who says that because of my so called 'station' I can't help anyone?" "No one, miss. But Madame would-" "Who's Madame?" Garnet asked as they walked to the kitchen and set the plates down. "Oh, she's Master Zidane's mother." the maid said, setting five of the dirty plates into the sink. "Why are so afraid of her?" Garnet asked, drying some clean dishes. "She is practically in charge of the manor. She's the one who decides who leaves and who stays." Garnet didn't like the sound of this at all. (sophian, Age 8 to 12, 8/29/2003 9:30:52 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(22) (There will be more characters later,of course and it's okay Sophian if it does not match FF9.It's just a story.) (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 9/2/2003 12:02:09 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(23) I wish yall would stop screwing up the stories. (snoopy, Age 13 to 18, 9/13/2003 11:30:59 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(24) Oh yeah, sorry about that and there's no need for that.... but, it's okay if people want a little help here, right? Otherwise this story would be much more confusing, believe me. Now, that's all cleared up as you can see, so I'd be delighted if we can continue the story from where we just left off...By the way, I'm HeadGirl and Carlos is the HeadBoy in charge, so if we have a problem with anything we could easily delete it. Again, sorry for the patronage. (Emily, Age 13 to 18, 10/6/2003 11:20:07 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(25) I don't even know this story! (A.H. Your mystery person ask Jaz for my name, Age 8 to 12, 10/7/2003 8:31:58 PM, Final_Fantasy_9)

(29) Then a guy who was sitting on a tree jumped down and flew off the cliff. "I'm a bird!" he said happily,"Weeeeeee!" SPLAT! And now he's dead. (Dragon Gaz, Age 13 to 18, 11/12/2003 9:50:02 AM, Final_Fantasy_9)
