So those scenes are just flashback scenes both to serve that point and also provide fanservice towards people who asked about the compliation stuff.Maybe just admit that you want the fan-favourite characters to escape their destiny aka their deaths in the original game?like when they try to push Wedge away from "impacting the story" or whatever, and how they stop Cloud from taking down Reno in the church ('cause y'know, they're not supposed to even fight there)
FF loves a thuddingly obvious metaphor and I don't see how anyone could interpret the Whispers as being anything other than a representation of the constraints of the original narrative.
