1st Spell [ Video ]

[ The feed turns on with Terra sitting on the floor, surrounded by books. Feathers is perched on the tallest pile, entertaining herself by leaping off, flapping madly to drift to the ground, and then climbing up Terra from her leg to her arm, shoulder, head, and then the books to repeat the process. ]

Um... I don't know a lot ...about anything, so I went to the library. But there's too much to try and learn at once, so ... I'm going to start with something relevant. Something called hobbies - you do them when you're not busy. I think.

But I don't know what to start with. How do you know if it's something you'll enjoy? What are you supposed to do -- how do you even begin? How do hobbies work?

[ The frustration is evident in her voice, and she sighs, putting books aside. ]

Gardening, Fishing, Coin and Stamp Collecting, Insect Collecting, Model Building, Painting...

Do people really do all of these things? How do you find time for it all? Are you supposed to only have one hobby or more? I don't get it - what's the point to it?

[ A longer pause as she neatly stacks the books again, holding still as Feathers scales Mt. Terra and pauses at the peak to catch her breath. Terra's half smile drops. ]

... I haven't seen Gau in weeks. I wonder... if he's on another world or if he's gone too. [ ... Like the others. ]

[Chloe, still making a bit of a face at the mention of fishing being a good hobby, flicks on the control that will send his response. ]

The only way to find out if the hobby is something you would enjoy is to try it.

[Who would want to go and sit on a muddy bank all day with bugs flying around... just, no. ]

You might be able to eliminate a few right from the start. Is there anything you know you don't enjoy doing?

Research more magic, experiment with the spells I know to make them stronger, go places with Schala.

A hobby is something to enjoy, something that helps your mind relax when you have a things to think about. Something you want to devote time too just for its own sake. They can be very wonderful.

[She does! Which, is probably news to people who don't know her well back in her world and only think of her as the snobby (they misunderstand from her shyness) exam genius.]

I enjoy chess, swimming, and reading in particular.

Hobbies are so juvenile. Isn't there anything better you can do with your time?

And I wouldn't worry about your friend. He's gone.

I'm sure there's something that even you can do that's productive.

Isn't it obvious? Disappearances normally mean they've been taken. Vanished. Fluttered off into that unknown realm of darkness...

You don't have to do all of those things, you know. Just try one that sounds interesting to you, and if you don't like it, try something else that sounds interesting.

[And he's watching the chocobo keep makin' the rounds - there's something oddly hypnotic in that.]

Uhh... [Okay, he's actually gotta think about this.] I train a lot? At home I had a couple plants in my room and some books, and I liked to look at the stars.

[But home is gone, now.]

A person can have many hobbies or only a few. There is no predetermined limit nor predetermination what sort of hobbies an individual might enjoy.

[The question itself seemed odd but as their previous conversations had already revealed, Terra seemed to have little knowledge about the world in general and was eager to learn about it. An admirable quality, this curiosity of hers.]

Personally I do enjoy playing games in order to pass the time such as chess or cards.

If you had a hobby, you'd know the point to it silly! [Naru chimed in using the most cheerful voice she could muster]

Hobbies are just something fun to do. [She paused for a moment]

Say, I still haven't taken you to an arcade yet. .. But I'm still not sure there is one here... or we could just go shopping! Shopping is a fun hobby. You don't have to buy anything but at least you get a chance to get out of the house and see the sights!
