So you're going through life and you have this on your arm:

74272

What is your mission in life that you would turn to crystal if you failed doing it? Your answers can be as silly or as serious as you like.

Like, probably finish one of those millions of novels that I started writing. Doomed to being a Cie'th, I guess.

But some Cie'th have wings, so... at least you maybe get to fly? :shrug:

Correct me if I'm remembering wrong, but don't you turn to crystal if you complete your focus? Cie'th are the punishment for failure.

Mine would probably be getting sleep. Welp.

Mine would probably be the same as Fynn's honestly, which I would also probably not succeed in. Or it might be something like beat everything in my backlog of games, which would probably also lead to my doom.

You're right. Factual error on my part. It's been a hot minute since I've played these games. I just remember the crystallization was something you wanted to avoid and trying to free Serah from it.

It's definitely a damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario. But at least if you turn into crystal, you can wake up in like, 500 years. So if you succeed you basically get free time travel so yay?

But then as soon as you wake up, you're immediately slapped with another Focus. This happens over and over again until you inevitably fail or give up, and you become a Ci'eth.

Unless, of course, you team up with a bunch of other l'Cie and overthrow the gods who have been controlling and manipulating humanity for their entire history. As you do.

".... can I please get another focus now? 500 years from now can't be worse than this."
