Vanishing Star Vanishing Star, miss Ava's shrine to Rinoa, is nothing short of an amazing resource. Her articles are always spot-on insightful, original, and interesting. Ava will provide even the most dedicated fan with some new food for thought! Vanishing Star is an unsung gem in the FF8 community, for example, it is the home of the original Rinoa Is Ultimecia article---which is one of the most famous, frequently un-credited contributions to FF8 discussion. VS was one of the earliest Rinoa shrines, and remains one of the most informative and original. Furthermore, Ava is an intelligent, friendly, and long-time "netizen" with a downright enviable ability to express herself both smartly and creatively.

Valkyrie Valkyrie, miss Amelia's shrine to Rinoa, has been one of my favorite sites on the 'net since I first discovered it. Valkyrie offers in-depth coverage with insightful articles, amazing original content, and has excellent presentation. For sure in miss Amelia's site you'll find something new about Rinoa, or see something from a different point of view. Amelia is an excellent writer, and Valkyrie is a fresh and informative experience.
