Okay, but what I really like about Tales of Xillia is: Milla is admired by a lot of people. The whole party, Gaius, Ivar, etc. And not because she’s (physically) strong or beautiful; though she is both those things, she was fashioned to be strong and beautiful. (at least, her body was.)
But she’s admired for her conviction, her determination, her sense of duty and her iron will and resolve. Everyone from a lonely little girl, to a young medical prodigy, to a man forty years her senior who is a war veteran and a master tactician: they all look up to her and respect her deeply. For her inner strength, not her outer strength. And I think that’s awesome.

My sister is watching the second episode of Korra.
I hear lots of laughing.
30 Days of Video Games: Day 1 - First Video Game Ever
Final Fantasy IV
Now I’m not 100% sure if this was actually my first video game, but it’s the earliest memories of video games that I have. Back when I was little and my basement was still carpeted and I was watching my dad play while simultaeneously trying to fly by flapping these thin pillows we had like they were wings while jumping off the couch…
That part didn’t work so well.
But Final Fantasy IV is very near and dear to my heart, and I’ve replayed it a lot.
Of course, when I originally played it/watched my dad play it, it was the SNES version (and it was still called FFII). But these are screen shots of the GBA version while my friend Erin and I were playing years back. They are far more amusing than any screen shots of the SNES version I could find (we also renamed everyone after our friends soooo yeaaaah. It was a highly amusing playthrough). XD
The Fault in Our Stars is currently outselling Breaking Dawn and Twilight. I just thought the nerdfighters would appreciate this :)
This is an example of a thing that I never thought would happen to me.
