I love Nesa partially because she's part of me (I created her within the world of FF7; I love her as one of my own creations). But mostly I love her for being relatively normal in a world where being super-powerful is regarded as a bonus. I love her for being able to argue with super-powerful beings and come out on top, just by being normal at them (her position is that she doesn't care if they can break her with one hand; she's still the one who inputs their mission data into the payroll systems, and that makes them even). I love her for being willing to go in batting for characters the canon writers go to a lot of trouble to make unsympathetic (Sephiroth, Rufus Shinra). I love her for being an older sister to five younger brothers and not going insane. I love her for carrying on that big sister role for a group of young men who dealy need it (the SOLDIER corps as a unit). I love her for caring enough about the unbreakable people (SOLDIER again) to realise that underneath, they're a maze of cracks, and sit there with the psychological equivalent of a bottle of Clag paste and paper strips, trying to patch them together enough to hold on for a bit longer so she can do the proper repairs. I love her for the glimpses into the everyday madness of the world of FF7 she provides, and the little bureaucratic insanities she navigates without pause. I love her for being a key into a world which is both fairly complex underneath and at the same time vastly simplified for story reasons. Mostly I just love her because she's Nesa, she's there, and she's telling me stories.
