If there was a garden would you join, and learn to be what? And would you stay on campus and for long as it takes knowing how hard it is?

I wish there were Gardens like in Final Fantasy VIII... I'd love to train to be a mercenary. I guess I'm belligerant ._.
11-23-2002, 12:53 AM
BALAMB GARDEN!!!! I would train to be a SeeD! lol :thumbsup:

11-23-2002, 12:56 AM

I just want to get my hands on a gunblade...they can put me in whatever they want just give me the gunblade...
11-23-2002, 01:17 AM
Galabi-whatever, the one where Irvine came from. They had wicked armore, and snipers. Screw gunblades (well, don't screw em, they are cool and all), but I'd rather pick someone off from a distance than risk losing a limb of life in a melee battle.
11-23-2002, 06:49 PM
Definitely! It all seems to fit me for some reason...
11-24-2002, 04:36 AM
ahh a garden.... seems perfect spot to live.
<=== is working on Seed Costume already..... and sorry Will, i think this one is even better than yours.
Lemme see I'll be a gunblade specialist... but that seems to common for some reason.... except in the game there was like one. I'll think i'll be a limit break specialist with a special type gunblade. Modified so it can actually fire bullets like Irvine. OOOo the possibilities....(Hey its my fantasy!!!)
O hey Will..... when you wear your seed costume.. do you feel like a power ranger?... kinda like the orginal green one but with better colors

*needs to make a SeeD costume* ...Sure I'd go! Don't care what I end up doing though..actually, I care, im just not sure o.O;;
*kicks playstation* I have offically died 13 times tonight while on the SpaceShip..~__~;; ( actually I frogot where I was ..)
I hope to cosplay as a SeeD from Balamb some time. That's what I was gunna do, but it's sorta hard to be accurate on the costume...
11-24-2002, 06:48 PM
I would prefer gardens in the like of that of Lothlorien ^^;; Huge fan of them right here.
11-27-2002, 06:26 PM
Balamb Garden....Weapon's specialist....I really like gunblades...reason why I am making one! Wish me luck cuz it
s hard! I have the blade half way done...but hand to hand combat isn't too bad either....eh you can stick me with either and I'd be happy! I love Balamb is so beautiful...of course if I went there...I would :be happy.I would probably like the food there. The Nice sleeping quarters..er dorms.And of course the desks in the classrooms! oooo..a laptop!
11-27-2002, 11:22 PM
I like the entire Spear/polearm/halbred thing they've got going on with Cid in FF7, I saw a guy from Balamb using a spear during one of the cut scenes so I guess I'm going with Balamb
11-27-2002, 11:24 PM
i just want to be a bounty hunter
...one day...one day i will become like Boba Fett....um...what are you all looking at?
11-30-2002, 11:51 PM
Since I'm sure it was rebuilt, I like Trabia garden. It seems extremely peaceful and tranquil even if its buried in moutains and snow. My second choice would probably Balamb because I love the layout and atmosphere that Square gave it. Galbadia made me think "WAR! WAR RIGHT NOW! LET'S WARRING!"
12-01-2002, 01:42 AM
Galbadia made me think "WAR! WAR RIGHT NOW! LET'S WARRING!"
Yeah, Galbadia Garden needs to get a interior decorator in there real quick. . .
Anyways, I'd want to go to Balamb Garden, although I'd want to concentrate more on being a magic specialist, and I don't recall there being much of that in Garden. If I had to choose a weapon, I'd pick Quisty's whip - fun times. :devil:
I actually want to make a cadet uniform like the one Selphie wears on the Dollet mission. I like the colors on those outfits more than I do the SeeD uniforms.
12-01-2002, 03:06 AM
Huy- dude! when are you gonna wear it? whenever you do. . tell me. . lol we should get a Class Gathering of SeeD students. . . ^_^
12-01-2002, 04:08 AM
Traaaaaaaabiaaaaaaaa~!!!!!! =) I just love this Garden!
12-01-2002, 06:34 PM
I'd go to Balamb Garden...it's a fine mixture between Trabia's serenity and Galbadia's WAR ROX HARD-ness^_^ I'd wanna specialize in turret throwing (is that what it's called? Think Chocolate from Sorcerer Hunters) or the swallow (like Serge from CC) XD
12-02-2002, 12:30 PM
Hey Will. I already wore for Japan Expo even though it wasn't finished... but nobody noticed so its all good. So a class reunion of Seeds... I'm all for it. I think there's atleast 4 more seed cosplayers on this board and yeah Kitty said she was gonna make one too.
I would love to do that..I mean, one year (if I could convince my mom to take us) my friends and I could be SeeDs, too.. Anyway, I loved Balamb Garden's layout.. Galbadia's was okay, but really boring..and there isn't much left to see of Trabia, anyway... I'd fight with my fists like Zell (and prolly kick, too, anyway)! I'm just strongest that way.. *evil expression* It's fun to beat up all the annoying guys at school...

If women ever get drafted into the military, i am SO sniping. Ninja style.
Aaanyway, I can't remember what Galbadia looks like, but I do remember liking the look of Balamb. Beautiful, especially the...moat...thing...with the lights and gold and such. And I liked haning out outside. And it flies!!

if you are drafted they make you a grunt. obviously if they need troops that bad that they start drafting women then we are losing horribly. it would also take too long to train you than the draft allows...
as for me, id want something thats graceful and requires alot of skill to use properly like a sword... but if gunblades are anything like the one i made then they arent built for either of the things i said i wanted. the handle and trigger (and trigger guard) just dont allow for it. i think id opt for smaller blades... in fact one of my future projects is going to be a handgun-gunblade... reminicent of dueling hand guns.
L to the 3rd
12-02-2002, 10:21 PM
I'd probably get kicked out of a Garden for being defiant. I don't like taking orders and stuff.. -_-; My personality
is more like Seifers..lol.
I suppose it'll be like a military school where you gotta get up at like 5:00 am in the morning to train n' stuff.
12-02-2002, 11:13 PM
but Training early in the morning is the Fun part!!! ^_^

x.x I would die waking up early. Oh wait, what am I saying? I have a longer school day than everyone else in the whole school district, so that wouldn't make a huge difference for me... Training's probably A LOT better than school! Anyway, Galbadia's interior is basically stairs, hallways, and classrooms. Which are all a really light white-grey. BORING, in other words.

Actually if you're drafted into the military... they search for natural talent in sniping. Its not something you really can choose to get in. If you train hard enough you can be one but a natural sniping ability is usually choosen. Also sniping doesn't rely on much training. It takes about 2 months to become a proficient sniper and more training goes into stealth. If i remember correctly a good sniper can be alone in enemy terriory and won't be killed until he or she runs out of bullets.
Morning training..... reminds me of getting up at 4:30 am to do cross country traing at around 5 am and be showered(at school ewwww) and ready for school by 7:30.
Someone said something about a hand gun gunblade. Kinda like seifer's hyperion. Only problem it lacks strength. Being only one handed it is design for distance and finese. Since squall's is modeled after a katana it gives it more advantages than a one handed version.

no im talking about a handgun-gunblade the size of an actual gun. not the oversized versions we see in the game.
i didnt know the gunblade was modeled after the katana. the design of its handle and the weight of the blade would suggest to me its a lot less graceful. more like a heavy european sword. after all squall and siefers fight in the opening movie lacked grace of movement. it looked like they were going at each other with axes.

I hope that no one joining the military has a background in sniping x-x
i think i'd make a good sniper...I always snipe in games like Halo. But then again I snipe with grenade launchers.

I think it'd be awesome to be in any Garden! (If talking about those in FFVIII ^_^) But if I'd get to CHOOSE... I'd go to Galbadia Garden, straight away. Why? There's Irvine! ^-^v Isn't that a reason good enough?
Even besides that, I think the whole style of attending school in a gardenish way is just so cool. And the uniforms are l33t. ^_^ Plus that it seems that the schools are crowded with bishounens... Again, a plus-side. Aaaand... Well, there's just no way you could gain anymore weight, since you have to train so hard. But I think I'd like it there.
So, who's got the tickets? When is the dimensional-distortion-train leaving? (Oh, wait, it was the subway... And it left at what, 0:13:13?) Let's go! ^_^
01-01-2003, 03:05 PM
GALBADIA FOR LIFE!!!! xD Wooha! ::dances around:: :P Although, I prefer Balamb since it seems a lot more .... carefree than Galbadia is. :B Durr...oh well. ^_^ Then again...I'm contemplating. If anything, I'd want to be a gunblade specialist! >D
01-06-2003, 10:24 PM
If I had the chance to study in a Garden I would so do it. I'd wanna train with a Gunblade because those are so freakin hot.
01-06-2003, 11:25 PM
join a garden? :::perverted snicker::: only if i get to have squall all for myself. mmmmm.... squall....... lol
