'Sir' Laguna

Having developed an infatuation with Laguna (who wouldn't?) through the dream sequences, Selphie creates a new section on her website, "Sir Laguna's Page", which is, well, a page dedicated to Laguna (yet another great title, Selphie). Her dedication is so serious that this little corner even gets its own layout! Either way, although Selphie says in the introduction that she'll be posting Laguna's articles for Timber Maniacs here, all we ever get to read are her own comments on them. Thankfully, these are ridiculously humorous in their sincerity. Thank you, Lord, for not letting her realize she makes him sound like a complete loser!

New articles are added to the page as you find Timber Maniacs issues, making for a total of thirteen different comments by Selphie, as seen below. By the way, what the f**k is the Centra Ruins thing about? Tsk tsk, Selphie. Wrong place to offer cute little "extras" with pictures of yourself. You show-off, you! <3


[Introduction]
It was fate. I can't quite explain. This page is dedicated to Laguna. No, actually, I call him Sir Laguna. He is such a hunk! (At least that's what I think.) It seems Sir Laguna was writing articles in Timber Maniacs while travelling. I'll be posting some of Sir Laguna's articles here.

Timber Maniacs
Sir Laguna writes about the time he went to the editor of Timber Maniacs. He brought an article entitled, 'Alcohol will change you', but it got rejected. I think Sir Laguna's a lightweight!

Dollet Pub
According to this article, Sir Laguna gambled to try to cover travel expenses. But he lost it all and told how dangerous gambling can be. I guess he got in a little over his head.

Dollet Harbor
In one of Sir Laguna's articles, he wrote about how he tried to get to Esthar. He tried many different routes, but he eventually ended up in Dollet. There's no way he can make it from Dollet. You sure travel a lot, Sir Laguna!

Esthar's Secret
Do you understand this picture? Sir Laguna even wrote 'Esthar's Secret'. But actually... I know what it is! This is where Sir Laguna went scouting. Was it ok for this to be published? I guess he really needed the money!

Timber Hotel
This is a hotel in Timber. It's full of Galbadian soldiers. You'll still find soldiers there, but this is a little too much, huh? Yes, this is a picture of when Timber was occupied by Galbadia. Sir Laguna tried to stay at this hotel, but it was used to house soldiers. Why are these articles from that period? That's because that was the period when Laguna actually wrote the articles. So, all the magazines with Laguna's articles are all old and worn out. I wonder how old Sir Laguna is now? I betcha he's a dandy old guy!

Esthar
H-Heeey!? According to the article, this is Esthar. I'm very happy Sir Laguna made it to Esthar but... Is this real...? This city is soooo cool! But I hear now, there's nothing on the continent where Esthar is...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Esthar Continent
According to Sir Laguna, he ended up here when he got lost on the Esthar continent. I hope Sir Laguna was all right... But what breathtaking scenery! I wanna go, too! I wanna go, I wanna go, I wanna go!

Balamb Hotel
You all know this place! Yes, it's the hotel in Balamb! So Sir Laguna went to Balamb, too. Looks like Sir Laguna likes hotels. The article says he really wanted to stay at the hotel but ran out of money. He wasn't able to try the famous Balamb fish.

Shumi Village
This is amazing! Sir Laguna's with the Shumi Tribe! The article says he got lost and injured, but thankfully ended up here. Seems like Laguna gets lost a lot. But he always repays an act of kindness. By the way, the master here is a Shumi. I heard all about it from Squall. Shumi Tribe... I wanna meet them!

Centra Ruins
This is something extra. It's the entrance to the Centra ruins. You see me in the picture? There's a statue of a sorceress and knight. It's kinda nice. Although there are tons of monsters!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Trabia Area
Wow! Sir Laguna's in a movie! Plus, it looks like it was shot near Trabia! He could've been famous! Oh... but I betcha he can't act... He speaks way too highly of himself in the article. I just find it strange that I don't see Ward in the picture...

Winhill Pub
Well looky here... He writes proudly of it in the article. A pub, somewhere, plus the owner. No name or location is written down. But actually, I know where it is. I won't say though, out of respect for Sir Laguna. But if it's that important, he shouldn't have published it in a magazine. But I guess it's something special.

Fishermans Horizon
Sir Laguna, finally in FH.! This is where he finally made it to Esthar. So it's true that you get there from FH. By that time, there were no more trains. So Sir Laguna walked it. I wonder what the trains were like, here? It says, this is Laguna in high-spirits after finding out he had to walk there...!
