I’m not kidding. This post will show you how his resolution is like that. And Barret’s friends are closer than we thought.
Hello, my reader. Welcome to my post about Final Fantasy VII Remake and this time I will the multiple hidden truths behind Barret’s Resolution and I will share my own experience when I encountered those people, the true existence of Avalanche’s members. This scene happens when Barrett tells Cloud in ch14, part 1 of FF7R.
I can tell you for now that their charms are irresistible. ♥♥♥
They are somewhere around here.
Before I will start…
Before you will read this post, I strongly recommend you play FF7 Remake, before proceeding.
- Please read Attention page first, to let you understand that my works are not 100% right.
- Spoilers up ahead.
- Therefore, I recommend you explore FF7 game series, movie, anime, novels, and etc.
- My English sucks, such, sub.
The chapter that I am going to write is ch14 – In Search of Hope >> Resolve, Barret’s resolution. There he mentions to Cloud about his three comrades, Finn, Al, and Nellie, at Aerith’s flower garden that the atmosphere at that time makes me wonder if this place is the resort.
The owner of this home & garden is missing.
The info from Barret Wallace (バレット・ウォーレス) is important because it can guide me to the title of this post. But to reach that point, if you read my other posts already, you would see how the deeper truth is hidden behind the scene. And this case is not different, I found out the hidden truths behind these three people. Let’s explore Barret’s thoughts.
‘Bout people. Like Finn. Lazy little punk. Kid would do damn near anything ‘cept what you told him. But ask him to paint you a picture and boy howdy. Those Stamps in the tunnels? Finn’s work. Every one.
I was not sure if my assumption in my mind about Finn is correct so I will look at Al’s info to find some clues.
Then there’s Al. Intel guy. He had these tricks for stealing codes I still don’t understand. Stole his share of hearts, too. But, when it came to the ladies, he just had the one trick. Bouquet of flowers hidden behind his back. Funny to think, some of ’em might’ve even come from here. He pulled the flower trick on Tifa once, believe it or not. She told him where to stick ’em.
After I reviewed Al’s information over and over, I feel that this is the hidden truths of someone. Yeah, Al is a guy but I’m talking about the hidden truth behind this guy’s story so I ignored the gender of this character for now because it’s easier to analyze. The first underlined clue above is kind of strange because I don’t see why this Al stole his share of hearts. That’s why this is the starting point of analyzing the hidden truth behind this Al.
So I tried to switch Al with other characters and check how things will be. Al stole his share of hearts can be interpreted as…
Al(someone) stole his share of hearts.
The next problem is who is this someone and who is stolen “his” share of hearts. After I reviewed this Barret’s opinion about Al and imagine how a person stole his share of hearts. I interpreted like this because I used my own experience via writing about three characters in another post, I used those info because I believe that the answer of “a character stole his share of hearts.” would be not out of “that circle”.
The Ancient Secrets of Adorable Flower Decors & Summons.
If you don’t know who are three characters, you can read this.
If you reach this point, I will think that you already read the post above. The post revealed about people who are like the ancient secrets of those decors and Summons.
That’s why I imagined someone who is stolen his share of hearts that means “someone” in this case is the opposite gender. Stole his shared of hearts is like the passcode so I don’t need to change the pronoun [his]. That’s why I suspected that thief would be the opposite gender.
Since I connected the info from the post above to this consideration, the suspects are two characters. Guess who?
The first part of Al’s story is the story about two people, a thief and a character who his short story was created as if he is the victim as Barret says. About that (famous) thief, I can think the only one who can do that. Actually, now I picked my own answer which is another character is the reflection of Al because I also reviewed Nellie over and over. Let me reveal my answer later but in this post.
Since I believe that Al is the reflection about that person and there are two parts in his story so I used this assumption to check the final part of Al’s tale… or used that hidden character’s info as another secret passcode. ⇓
Bouquet of flowers hidden behind his back. Funny to think, some of ’em might’ve even come from here.
I imagine this quote as the middle part of Al’s story because there are hints that can point that who is the reflection of Al. After I collected these hints [flowers] & [some of them might come from here (Aerith’s flower garden)], my belief about that person would be the correct answer, increased. You might disagree with me since the middle of Al’s info would make us think that Al is a womanizer who uses flowers behind his back to catch Tifa and other ladies’ hearts that it’s easy to imagine how things are.
So I thought this is the challenge because I must endure the strong wind power or the obvious story of Al at the story level. I need to warn myself that I’m searching for the hidden truth that is sleeping at a deeper level. So be careful, everyone who read Al’s info. What I need to do is concentrate.
Another trick of mine is to interpret Al’s story to many parts, not as the one lonnnnnnnnnng info. I noticed that if I read Barret’s opinion about this Al as the one info, I couldn’t escape from his obvious story.
For example, Flowers behind his back can be interpreted as various views such as…
- Flowers behind Al’s back
- or [flowers] that is the keyword/symbol of someone.
That I chose the second choice. This symbol, Flowers helped me to imagine who is the answer behind this symbol so easily, even Aerith’s flower garden supports insisting that assumption.
So the final part of Al’s information is about that person and Tifa.
He pulled the flower trick on Tifa once, believe it or not. She told him where to stick ’em.
Once again I decided to interpret things as many parts so the quote above is the next station.
Personally, I believe in this clue, “believe it or not.” because this is the sign by people who created these info of Finn, Al, and Nellie. The sign that acts as if it is asking me if I believe or not. Since this is the sign that confirms itself, I will believe what Barret says that is next to this sign, is reliable.
Of course that this is my own personal feeling and Barret would doubt Cloud if he believes or not since he never witnessed that moment but I will warn myself again that I’m seeking the deeper truth, not Al’s story.
Eng sub in this case is so difficult to searching the hidden truths because this language can create an obvious and clear story that could make me believe in those stories so easily.
So at the story level, it’s not difficult to imagine that Tifa denied Al’s flirting but at the deeper level, if my assumption about that character is correct, this is not the flirting anymore but something in the similar category. The question is, then what happened between that existence and Tifa in this case?
Since it’s so difficult to interpret this final part, we have this info in just two lines. So I had another good idea that I should explore Japanese sub that means more work but I hoped there are some clues that can decide what things are between Tifa and that person… Or I should say that my motivation is I wanna know about that character and Tifa! Inspiration, I must do! ⇓
Jap sub & TL (partly & roughly)
So I TLed the final part of Al’s story.
そういや (which reminds me; come to think of it) ー度 (1 degree/frequency)
ティファに手 (手 = manus/paw/hand)を出 (出 = rising)そうとして
Saying that (that person) is going to meddle/is going to be involved with Tifa/raises her/his paw at Tifa.
had her stolen severely/was done severely.
…What is this being? A cat? I will not TL this that much since I just want the raw data to analyze what happens between Tifa and that person and this is the result. Personally, I want to tl that this character raises her/his paw at Tifa that I don’t think it means s/he fought or hurt Tifa but to reflect that this character got involved/meddled with Tifa and Barret says this action was done without fail that made me imagine what things are between them and even cross the line to imagine this ship. Anyway, adorable! ♥
Cloud’s response might be a trap.
Or I should say his response in Eng can act as the trap for me who is seeking for the hidden truth. I mean, he responds to Tifa’s objection. But Jap sub is different as you can see above. Cloud’s reply in Jap is like the assertion the info from Barret, confirming that person’s action toward Tifa and the result. Of course, you can interpret that [was done severely.] as various meanings since Jap sub is so vague.
But that character in my mind who stole his shared of hearts and has flowers as the clues doesn’t allow me to imagine that the conclusion of that person’s attempt toward Tifa, was ended with the negative result but the effective result.
And Nellie’s story is not different. ⇓
ps. TL Jap is difficult, took so much time and energy but it’s fun! I recommend you to explore this sub to gain more interesting things about them.
Our quartermaster, Nellie, had a good laugh at that. She was tight with Jessie. People sometimes took ’em for sisters even. They’d say “No way!” and get upset, but then they’d start giggling and you knew…
Jap sub (TLed roughly)
Nellie who is in charge of the needy materials procurement with Jessie.
コンビ (pair)を粗 (粗 wild/natural/shortcoming/defect/rudeness/crude/crudeness/coarse)むことが多くて (多くて = full of)よ
The combination/pair that is full of natural.
Often mistaken for sisters.
Even though they are not similar.
文句 (expression/complaint/words)を言いながら (言いながら = with these words/while saying)
While saying words,
they laughed joyfully.
ps. In Eng sub, they TLed as Nellie and Jessie denied and were upset but while I was reviewing this Jap, I decided to not TL the same because I don’t see why they were moody if people saw them like sisters (or I should say I have the answers or people who are reflections of Nellie and Jessie already so I can’t imagine how they will be upset). So I TLed as…
A character who is the reflection of Nellie, is in charge of the needy materials procurement with Jessie.
The combination/pair that is full of natural.
Often mistaken for sisters.
Even though they are not similar.
While they are saying words, they laughed joyfully.
When I reviewed this, it is refreshing when I imagined as this TL, you know? And I don’t mean Jessie and Nellie because I am searching for the deeper truths via N & J.
Of course that it’s doubtful when this happened so in my own opinion, I see this as the imagination between that person and Tifa more than what happened for real between them. Some people behind their shadows presented their condition and closeness.
If your answer is the same as mine about who is the reflection of Al who is the female character, you can continue analyzing who is the reflection of Nellie that is another female character who is close with Al’s reflection and they would be inside the circle of the post that I shared above. Ah, come to think of it. I didn’t analyze Finn yet.
So let me reveal my own answers.
- Al is the reflection of Aerith Gainsborough (エアリス・ゲインズブール). His story has many hints about her and a man who she stole his share of hearts, flowers, and would meddle with her close friend, Tifa Lockhart (ティファ・ロックハート) without fail.
- Nellie who is like the sister to Jessie, is the reflection of Tifa. N & J’ story also reflects the closeness and condition of another pair, Aerith and Tifa.
- Since Al can reflect the truths about Aerith toward an opposite gender, herself, and her close friend and Nellie reflects some imaginations about Tifa, the remaining answer or the reflection of Finn might be Cloud Strife (クラウド・ストライフ)? if I take the answer of the post above to this consideration.
Since I have this conclusion, I reviewed the final part of Al’s story again, the hidden imagination between Aerith and Tifa.
He(Aerith) pulled the flower trick on Tifa once, believe it or not. She told him(her) where to stick ’em.
It’s up to each person to interpret this but I am not a serious type who wants to find the exact answer so I think [pulled the flower trick] is like an idiom or metaphor, something similar that is not “this guy flirted Tifa with flowers”.
[told one where to stick it] is another idiom too. The idiom/slang that said when the person doesn’t want to do/accept something and shows the expression of anger/frustration.
And you would notice that there is no sign that confirms Tifa denied it in the quote above. This slang, Cloud’s relief, and the pronoun he refers (she) are factors that help each other to lure me to an obvious understanding.
For me, I don’t see how Tifa will respond like Al’s case to someone who is like her sister. I can’t see even a nano possibility so I changed my own perspective by re-analyzing that those two idioms (especially the second one) might not mean like that slang but as a simple and positive meaning.
So the trick to obtaining the deeper truth is ignoring the clear factors such as the scene, characters who are there, and even their emotions sometimes.
Then, are Finn, Al, and Nellie all right?
This? I can’t know if they are safe from the crisis at Sector 7 but since I am searching the hidden truth of people like them who are ?? (I don’t know who is the reflection of Finn yet), Aerith, and Tifa, this issue will be if they are all right. After I explored Jap sub, it’s like this.
Barret: あいつらなら 大丈夫さ
If it is them, it is all right.
For analyzing the deeper truth, this will not be Barret’s feeling toward FAN anymore. …It seems some people behind their shadows guaranteed this?
全員 (everyone/all the members) オレ (I/me)に似て (に似て = similar to/like)しぶ (branch/astringent/inner bark)てえから(てえから = from)な
All of them, from the branch/astringent/inner bark similar to me.
The true meaning of saving Aerith & introduce them.
At the story level, it is understanding that Barret’s idea refers to after they saved her from Shinra, he will introduce FAN. But the hidden truth at the deeper level is different. ⇓
Barret: エアリスを助け(助け = delivery/rescue/deliverance/saving)たあとで
紐 (cord/taenia/string/braid/tenia/strap)介して (介して = through the medium of)やるよ
Go through a string/A string intervenes between it and it.
After I reviewed this Jap, the result of TLing changes from what I ever understood. Since the deeper truth is CAT already and it is the present event, saving/delivering Aerith, in this case, is the super supreme ultimate event, the important trigger that it’s possible that this would occur at the future or the finale (not soon, I believe).
This event will be the key to let us see the meaning of the second speech [I go through a string/a string that intervenes between them]. I’m not sure how to interpret what this string will intervene but since Barret is talking about FAN then, in this case, is Aerith/Tifa (and even Cloud) or not? So feel free to interpret Jap sub.
And when I looked back at Eng sub, it is possible that this is the true meaning of [introducing those two or three people].
Barret: After we save Aerith, I’ll introduce you to them (FAN ⇒ Aerith, Tifa (and even Cloud too?)).
I’m looking forward to it.
…I am the one who is looking forward to that momento! (Clench my fist!) Inspiration, here I must see it!
One more big & surprising news.
This one is the real deal. ⇓
Barret: おまえ (you)相手 (相手 = mate/partner/companion/opponent)だって (だって = after all/because)のに
話したら(When talk/tell) スッキリしたぜ (feel fine/it is refleshing.)
If you see this info as Barret, this can be interpreted as he is Cloud’s companion but after I found out a super crashing truth via testing many assumptions about [Who is the reflection of Barret Wallace?]. Of course, I suspect that even him who has strange opinions in many events and places must be the reflection of a certain character definitely.
After I reviewed carefully, I am not sure if this assumption that I’m going to show you, is the correct one, I will use that result to connect with this post. Now! Barret, in this case, is the reflection of…
…It’s fine if you disbelieve this because even I couldn’t believe this unbelievable idea immediately when I got this for the first time so I need some time to adjust my thought for a while. But right now I will use this keyword to interpret Barret’s feeling in his Resolution. ⇓ This will open another new perspective that will surprise you for sure.
Mate & Talking.
おまえ (you)相手 (相手 = mate/partner/companion/opponent)だって (だって = after all/because)のに
話したら(When talk/tell) スッキリしたぜ (feel fine/it is refleshing.)
Because of my partner, you (Cloud)
When talk I feel fine/it is refleshing.
You would notice that I changed Barret’s name to Aerith. This is how I did to show you the new world. I don’t mean that she will say things as Barret says for real but switching their names like this is my way to show you the hidden truth that will happen to Aerith and Cloud’ lives in the future.
Barret: Never thought I’d feel better after talking with your hard-boiled ass.
You might notice that Eng sub has no anything about mate/partner/companion so I couldn’t notice this hint. But when I checked Jap sub, I think this sub has so many hidden treasures. For example, Aerith’s future [talking with Cloud] is interesting and subarashi! I mean, I am so excited how this will happen, the meaning of this talking between Aerith and her ma-, umm, companion, you know what I mean, don’t you?
The quote above has Barret’s accent so if I tried this and that as Aerith’s version…. I recommend you to review the quote above and this below to establish “a new world”.
ps. I adjusted things to show you a glimpse of the hidden truths between Cloud and Aerith in the future via her reflection, Barret only. I’m so glad this can show the certain will of some people behind Barret’s shadow about the Ancient girl via Jap sub ⇒ [Because you (Cloud) (are) mate/partner/companion]. I will not choose to write the meaning of “相手” (mate/partner/companion) so feel free to imagine which meaning is the most consistent. But I will share Hojo’s project for the last Cetra instead because I believe that post and this post are related.
I Support Hojo’s Plan For Aerith!!
So President Shinra’s permission for Hojo’s ultimate plan for Aerith, reproduce her with [the confidential top secret], might be not just an act.
And she will sleep peacefully?
Moreover, I can’t believe that the conversation between Cloud and Barret becomes the prediction, the future between Cloud and Aerith. Using the present event (Barret feels refreshed after talked with Cloud so he will be going to sleep) to hide the deeper possibility that Aerith will experience a similar thing. ⇓
Cloud: 眠 (sleep)れそうか (そうか = Is that so?)
[Aerith] おう グースカ (soundly (of sleeping)/(sleeping) like a log)ピーだ (Pae/Pee/Phi/Pi/Pie)
Oh. Sleep like a dog, Phi∼ ♥.
(ps. I recommend you to search this word, “グースカピー” on the internet to see its true power!)
…Whoohoo! I’m looking forward to seeing her (and even Cloud’s) future!! To tell you the truth, I never expected to find this wonderful truth, I tried to analyze Barret’s Resolution because I suspected that FAN’ short stories would hide something about Aerith and Tifa (but I’m not sure if Finn is the reflection of Cloud). I’m not sure if my analysis is correct but for me, this is a big bonus!
And the next scene, Barret and Cloud are returning to Aerith’s peaceful house that made me imagined the new concept between Aerith and Cloud while I was watching this scene.
Warning: I don’t know if she will survive from a certain event or not so interpreting this hidden truth can extract the various meanings except the direct meaning for now.
In conclusion, this is how I spotted people like Al, and Nellie who are at many places in Midgar (ミッドガル) along with their hidden truths. They are irresistible identities, aren’t they?
Sigh… Too beautiful.
And this is how Barret’s Resolution is about some main characters and the dog. Some of final story by Barret, KO’ed me without fail. This is his resolution but is it the sin to apply that this is the resolution of Aerith and her close people?
Since I can’t find who is the reflection of Finn yet so I wrote the new post about him especially. This time I also wrote about the mascot, Stamp too.
The game of the planet is going to come.
The next dish will connect to these awesome characters but they are presented by “the cute beings”. So stay tuned! ♥
