“Lightning Drools over the Bismarck’s Delightful Grilled Dodo!” That’s a headline from the Harbor Herald.
“The Trinkets of Eshtaime’s Lapidaries Fail to Strike Lightning’s Fancy!” That one’s a groan-inducing pun typical of the Mythril Eye and its mediocre reporting.

We have an event running at the moment that involves Lightning visiting Eorzea and participating with adventurers at F.A.T.E.s. I thought it was going to be the average “run and fetch” quest with little else, but the story actually surprised me.
It was decently-written and the enemies in the special F.A.T.E.s themselves were fun to fight (how cool was it to see Chaos Bahamut in Mor Dhona). But, I suspect a lot of the Hope/Lightning shippers missed this. Just in case…
The goldsmithing guild in Ul’dah is named in Hope’s honour, which may go some way to explaining their pun. Square Enix are trying to be as subtle as they can in their message to you all, but the fact that they’re saying it at all … is rather humourous.
