    Default "I want to be your Canary"`

    Is there a play called "I want to be your Canary" aside fron the one featured in FFIX?

    Nope. In FFIX, it's said to be the work of a 'Lord Afon', a none-too-subtle tribute to Shakespeare.

    As far as I know, the play's entirely imaginary. If not... then Square are headed for some fairly serious plagiarism trouble...

    No Big Deal

    Actually, the play was written by 'Lord Avon.' One of the Ragtime Mouse's questions is (SPOILER)"The play 'I want to be your Canary' was written by Lord Afon. True or False?"
    I had to get it wrong three or four times before it stuck.

    Which is (guess what) yet another reference to Shakespeare! Fancy that.

    Yeah, "I Want to Be Your Canary" is a crappier version of Romeo and Juliet (because no one wants to write a whole 'nother story to just put as a play within a story... well, they might, but they don't work at Square...) suited to the alternate world of FFXI.

    Personally, I always liked the end where (SPOILER)Zidane says that bit about "no cloud or squall shall hinder us" or something like that. Being that I'm not a fan of the aforementioned, it made me grin.
