So glad to see that this lives on!

It does indeed!  I've even started the pre-writing stage for my next project: Chrono Trigger!  Though it will be a little while before I start the actual writing.

This I'm a bit more excited for.

Haha  I'm not surprised.  It seems that most people favor Trigger over Cross - even in terms of soundtrack...which I find strange personally, but that doesn't change the fact that Trigger is incredible.

I think when it comes to the soundtrack it might not even come down to how great either one is, but if you've invested significantly more time into one game (as I have with Trigger), you have literally spent that much more time growing with that music. Because of how much more frequently I've heard the music from Trigger, it means so much more to me regardless of a side-by-side comparison.

I totally get that. The music becomes associated with the time spent playing the games, so there's a lot of nostalgia attached.  A good chunk of fans prefer Trigger and have invested HUGE amounts of time into it, so it really shouldn't be a surprise that it's soundtrack is probably more revered - even if Cross's soundtrack is generally considered to be better.
