At the beginning of this doujinshi Dagger shows Zidane a dummy that looks just like her... well, at a distance, and if Dagger had a stick instead of a body. It startles Zidane almost into falling off the tower of the castle in Lindblum. It's a scarecrow, and according to the cover (see above) it's a decoy. It works as a decoy, too - Steiner sees Zidane carrying the thing off, and immediately goes after Zidane with blood in his eyes. It may have worked a little too well.

In one of the gags, Dagger pictures Vivi as a cute little boy, snatches off his hat, and finds that... he is a Qu. Well, maybe not, that might have been a dream. If it wasn't, then the shock really did her in. A few pages beyond that, Vivi loses his hat in some undergrowth, and is revealed to be a tonberry. In another gag, Zidane plays the Moogle Flute and is answers by a big, mobbish Moogle. There are also a few pencil-drawn story pages in which Zidane, Dagger, and Eiko are in a modern room, goofing around and playing video games on a Macintosh.

There are a lot of other gags and things in this doujinshi. It's a fun little book, and the art is appealing, though occasionally the eyes look a little too big and christmas ornament-y. Overall it's pretty good.
