the excuse for having the scene is equally bad. \\\"it\\\'s the GF\\\'s fault\\\" thing isn\\\'t confirmed. Quistis even says it\\\'s just propaganda. 1 minute later everyone just instantly agrees, \\\"Yup, it\\\'s the GF\\\" as if it was known all along.
if i had seen this kind of writing in, say, fanfiction.net i\\\'d just stop reading then and there and maybe tell the writer that they really need more practice.
