midwinter : (14 June 2018 - 10:10 PM) all the rumours and stuff from the thread in the Fatal Frame News forum
midwinter : (14 June 2018 - 11:01 PM) Mr Johnny> I dunno what to say, dude. I'm sure no one wants you to feel tortured. But people shouldn't pretend to believe claims that sound really unlikely just because you're invested in it, either
midwinter : (14 June 2018 - 11:01 PM) I guess just... try not to take things so personally. It's not a reflection on you if people have doubts, it's just common sense
Chou : (15 June 2018 - 02:57 PM) No one is personally attacking you over the rumors, we just have doubts as there's been no other news and no other sources reporting anything
Mr Johnny : (18 June 2018 - 02:09 AM) I know folks I Very much know but it is my strange habbit to open up to strangers
Mr Johnny : (18 June 2018 - 02:11 AM) and I know Very much no one is attacking me I am not a baka but as I said the events of these past years was harsh to me
Mr Johnny : (18 June 2018 - 02:13 AM) even my Zodiac sign feature this strange habit,
Mr Johnny : (18 June 2018 - 02:16 AM) I just wanted to spend my Holiday with you guy and don't understand you as a whole the reason of my struggles cause you never was EVER!!! P.s "baka" is not my intended word, obv.
Mr Johnny : (18 June 2018 - 02:25 AM) I did't intend to make melodrama it is in your codswalloping mind. What a naive thinking.
midwinter : (18 June 2018 - 03:43 PM) Okay, enough. This isn't going anywhere helpful so just drop it, please
midwinter : (18 June 2018 - 04:03 PM) I've been thinking about the FF4 anniversary next month - would anyone be interested in a little drabble/paint art fest or something?
midwinter : (18 June 2018 - 04:03 PM) Nothing big, I just feel bad that we always seem to miss celebrating anniversaries
TomoChan : (18 June 2018 - 11:38 PM) I would be interested! I actually started drawing a picture of the FF4 cast for the anniversary :P hard to believe it's ten years old.
Chou : (19 June 2018 - 06:28 PM) I haven't drawn in foooorever but I'd try and join!

Mio's a Remaining now, right? Remainings usually have white hair after the ritual. How did Mio retained her hair color?

I've got a theory!  I think it's been around since 2 came out, but here's my thoughts: only unsuccessful Remainings have their hair turn white.  We see it in Itsuki, Kureha, possibly Ryokan (if his failed, it might be why he's so insistent with his daughters' ceremony?), and the Osaka twins in 3.  The Zero Comic Anthology shows us the Osakas' ritual was successful, but it hasn't explicitly been made canon, and wasn't written by the developers themselves.  

 

So, why would it turn white?  Well, during the ritual, the twins merge together as one person.  You could theoretically say a part of Mayu is still alive in Mio after her death, for example.  But if the twins don't merge, one half of that whole actually dies, represented in the living half receiving white hair, symbolising how a part of them has died.

 

Or it's totally random and related to the trauma.

This post makes me chuckle because I recall there being a "Mio's Hair" topic in one of the older forums.

 

I like Hex's theory!  I never thought of it that way but that would be amazing if that was the case.

Yes, I was also the original poster of that in the previous forum. It was actually a sticky one, with lots of debates. I can't find it here so I decided to post it again. B)

 

I agree with Hex's latter theory. I think it is only in-game trauma induced.
