    Thinking about it, it probably helps that she's voiced by Liara. Ali Hillis has a great voice, even if the dialogue is sub-par.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Most gamers and people who watch action films are young people who don't have the freedom to take what they deem heroic action and thus it becomes problematic to watch the main characters of those mediums (especially some shounen anime) complain when, in reality, it feels like this is all that many people are ever able to do. Instead, people rely on these mediums to give a glimpse of what it feels like to be in control and pretty much every young person believes it makes life easier and the main character should be happy or at least stop moaning about it.

    My pal, Dexter, and I have had a longstanding on-and-off romance. I've proposed to her multiple times but she always says she's still young and wants to explore her sexuality while men are still interested. Well, men and women. She strokes both ways. That's a double entendre.

    I never saw Lightning as cold. Angry? Yes. But angry people are also hopeful people. And that hopefulness is why they're often so disappointed, and made to be angry. I prefer an angry person to a cynical one myself.

    Also Lightning looks really cool and her voice actress fits her perfectly.
    Lamia's Tiara- Headgear in FFIX
    Lamia's Flute- Weapon for Eiko in FFIX
    Lamia in FFV- a enemy
    appearance: a lady with long brown hair, wearing a tiara...half woman and half snake.
    Lamia in FF3j- A Harp
    Lamia in FFL2- An enemy
    FF2j Queen Lamia, at one point she even gets Frionel in a bedroom with her and jumps on the bed and says "take me!".. before she turns into her snakey self. She serves as a mini boss in this game (as Queen Lamia).. and after you fight her as a mini boss, regular lamia's become random foes and later on in the game, Queen Lamia's become random foes as well.
    LamiaScl. an item that paralyzes foes.
    According to legend, she was once a Libyan queen (or princess) who fell in love with Zeus. Zeus' jealous wife Hera deformed her into a monster and murdered their offspring. She also made Lamia unable to close her eyes, so that she couldn't find any rest from the obsessing image of her dead children. When Zeus saw what had be done to Lamia, he felt pity for her and gave his former lover a gift: she could remove her eyes, and then put them on again. This way, though sleepless, she could rest from her misfortune. Lamia envied other the other mothers and took her vengeance by stealing their children and devouring them.

    Fun fact: She is voiced by a lady/gentleman called Dr Liara T'Soni. She is actually a member of the Asari race and has blue skin and a smoking hot body.
