Hey now! There's a bunch of us in Texas. :P
If you're going to Ikkicon/Akon, I'm doing 4, 5, and 6 with friends (well and 8 but that's not oldschool). Would LOVE for anyone in the world to join since I can usually only get 1 or 2 other people at any given time.
I did feel extremely out of place at the AWA Final Fantasy meetup a few weeks ago- I'm the only pre-FF7 in the group. And the green wig makes me really stand out like a space alien.
And YAY for FF3's incredibly, ridiculously cute designs. FF5 did the job system better but nothing can compare to just how adorable the DS remake designs of FF3 are. I loved Refia's black mage because it has the cutest bow on the hat. If I did another, it'd definitely be Devout.
