Rinoa, who, fell apart when she tried to take on the Sorcerress by herself?Originally Posted by tcaudilllg
I don't think she's alll that confident. She has willl power to do what is right for her cause, but clealry she doesn't have the confidence that the rest of the SeeDs do when it comes to battle situations.
Your second paragraph I am not so sure about, either. There is a lot of "duality" (for lack of a better word) in FF8. Opposition, conflict, mutual differences. Cid/Edea, Laguna/(and that piano girl-forgot her name), Laguna/Squall, Seifer/Squall, Siefer/Rinoa, Squall/Rinoa, Piano Girl/Rinoa's Dad, Elle/Squall.... And that's not even getting into the other supporting characters.
Also, there is a matter of time, and time compression. Overlaping. Look at the romantic interplay between the Laguna/Squall characters and how it deals with Piano Girl, Elle, Rain, and Rinoa. There are a lot of inferences one can make, going from the different big pictures to the different individual parts.
