Spira, I even loved him in some way.
It never crossed my mind that he could be manipulating me the whole time. Just the thought of that makes me so angry. Lreav didn't have to get to know me; he didn't have to become my friend. He could have remained aloof, like Elhandra, and his plans could still have come to fruition. But no, he had to make sure I was on his side, that I would never in a million years suspect him before it was too late.
He took my good nature for granted. He used me and then discarded me. And that's what made it so personal. You know, just thinking about it makes me so mad. It's so hard to try and move on after everything that has happened. I know I should; after all, my story's come to a resounding end and this limbo I'm currently living in can't last forever. It's just, well, I guess things are kind of safe here … if not exactly idealistic.
Take the budding relationship that has quickly become the centre of my world.
Summer In The City: Rikku/Gippal [FINAL FANTASY X-2] - The Shipper's Manifesto
Well, despite all my efforts, things between Gippal and me have been … difficult recently. I had this whole romanticised idea that once we'd caught Lreav then everything would somehow become perfect. We'd ride off into the sunset on a golden chocobo and all the problems that had perpetrated the early stages of our relationship would be completely forgotten. Without the whole 'saving-the-world-and-rescuing-Gippal' going on, those problems have come back full force.
When we aren't arguing over something completely trivial, there are these horribly awkward silences that neither of us can seem to break. It would be funny if it weren't so frustrating; after all, I'm not exactly known for my ability to keep my mouth shut, you know? Suffice to say it's hardly the domestic bliss I've been looking for.
Along with wreaking havoc across Spira, Lreav has managed to fairly screw up things for me and Gippal as well. Just when we should be getting closer and exploring the changing status of our relationship, we're drifting further and further apart. Gippal's a lot quieter nowadays … in fact, sometimes I think I don't recognise him at all as the cocky, arrogant guy I met all those months ago at the Djose Temple. I know he's still grieving for Lreav and I can even understand it because in some ways, I am too.
But he's changed beyond that, and I don't think it's all been for the better. For one thing, he's been so angry since Kilika — and not all of his anger is directed towards Lreav. Sometimes I'm the unlucky recipient of his ire — leading to either one of our spectacular rows or the icy silence I'm beginning to know so well. I'm not completely sure why he's so angry with me — am I really that irritating?
I know he doesn't want to but honestly, internalising your emotions is a bad idea. It's always better to talk about things otherwise you let everything build up inside and then you fly apart … BANG!
The Shipper's Manifesto
So far my methods haven't exactly been working. I've tried not to push him too hard but I guess subtly isn't exactly my strong point. Oh, who am I kidding? I suck at being subtle. Maybe I should just leave him alone but to be honest, I don't know what else to do.
I know I love him. I'm certain of it now. But in the face of all the problems we've been having … well, I'm starting to wonder if I'm doing the right thing by pursuing this relationship. Perhaps it would be better if we had some time apart — time to cope with everything that has happened and come to terms with Lreav's betrayal … No!
So he decides he is going to end it all, but then he meets a girl who he thinks can be the one to save him. Anger, Pain, and Love It's been done before Gippal has to live up to the promise he made to Buddy while trying to understand that Rikku can take care of herself.
