You're welcome for the information Alchymist! I do love to be useful
My powers of introspection are a little weak at this stage in my life and as such I don't honestly know if I see in me what others might. So I will try to answer the qualities you asked about in Rikku individually then explain what I see in her.strong
: Well that depends on the strength in question, yes physically I am quite strong and spar on a regular basis. Internal strength is something that I have been told I have; one persons comment stands out in my mind, he said "Your inner light is so strong you could be a lantern for others." Often times I myself feel weak. I always seem to find a way through but sometimes I don't know how I keep going I just know I have to.brave
: Although I don't know if there is too much difference I feel that foolhardy is a better adjective for me most days. beautiful
: Physically I feel that I am alright for my age, more soft and matronly than some, and I miss my long hair, but at least I don't look like Skeletor either. Inner beauty I do feel that I have, but there is a darker/ugly part that lives inside of me. One that is jaded and bitter by everything that I have had happen in my life. Most days she isn't an issue, but I know that I must come to terms and accept what has happened and who I am before I can completely rid myself of that negativity. intelligent
: See Brave... I know that I am intelligent, however for all the book smarts I have I am exceptionally lacking in common sense.Why I identify with Rikku...
To me she is loyal to a fault, compassionate, fun loving, protective of her family and rather deep yet a space case at the same time.
