Breathing a bit of life into this thing with a GIP, because Fire Emblem had its trading card game rebooted a few days ago and Virion's art on one of the cards was too pretty to resist. ♥ Part of me still wishes I married my Avatar to him instead of holding out for Libra. They had surprisingly good chemistry, damn it! Never mind, though; there's always another playthrough.

Speaking of FE, the latest game in the series came out in Japan a few days ago as well! I want it so bad~. I don't know how well I can manage holding out for its Western release next year, because it all looks so exciting. D: (And yes, I have been spoiling myself like crazy.)

Too bad the fandom's been such a pain in the ass over it. Some complaints have been perfectly legitimate, but half the time I've just felt like smacking people in the Tumblr tags. I'm obviously no stranger to obnoxious fandoms, but I swear, FE fandom takes the cake for being downright unpleasable. ~.~;

I'm amused by how the salt seems to have given way to a lot more thirst now, though; the tags have had less bitching and more fawning over husbandos and waifus since all the character models were ripped from skinship mode. I have no idea how much I'd actually use that feature when I get the game for myself; I loved Pokémon Amie to pieces, but I think I might feel too embarrassed petting human characters! On the other hand, I have to ask myself: if Awakening had a skinship mode, would I be petting my favourite characters there already? ^^;

Oh, and as for which campaign I'd play first? I was leaning more towards Hoshido for a long time pre-release, but certain things seem to have made me defect to Team Nohr now.

Oooh Mr. Virion oooh

God, I want it too. I kept going HOSHIDO HOSHIDO HOSHIDO because a) Hana and b) all the Nohr fans made me feel bad for Hoshido being picked on and neglected. But dear God, Nohr has some lovely ladies and relationships.

Tell me about it re: the fandom. We have gay marriages now! Oh, but it's so problematic because the gay options are so morally gray and kinda creepy and LGBT characters must always be perfect cinnamon rolls. (Especially Shara, who's getting the brunt of the hate.) And all the OMG INCEST IS INCEST BECAUSE YOU WERE RAISED WITH THEM EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE NOT BLOOD RELATED wank going on and people standing on their high horses to judge players who want to marry Xander or Takumi.

At least Charlotte's been getting less hate due to her supports revealing more to her character. That's a relief.

How many of the people flapping like panicked cockatriceschickens over if/Fates have ever taken a good long look at Genealogy, I wonder.

Or maybe I don't, because I probably don't really want to know the answer *facepalms*

According to them it was okay in Genealogy because the incest was portrayed as world-destroyingly unhealthy and evil. Except that only accounts for Alvis/Deidre, EltoLache never had a chance cause he DIED and the rest of the incest pairs were cousins or didn't know they WERE related.

Eldigan/Rachesis may not have had a chance as an in-party couple, but if that village visit is any indication the locals in-universe had few doubts at least *snicker*

I suspect its age is also a factor; even with the new fan translation, it's still a SNES-era game and many folks I've seen have only gone back as far as the GBA ones.

Totally Team Nohr here, but I don't have much ofa flip for what other folks want to play (or marry, or pet, or or or); it's all good as far as I'm concerned X3 *totally aiming to marry Camilla*

Is there anywhere the (so far released) new card art can be found? :o Has there been anyone from Genealogy yet that you know of ...?

... I've made it my goal to stay faaaar away from the FE fandom for quite some time because of it's antics, yup. Not worth the stress and the pain, even less so once I actually started forming character attachments.

Aha, thank ye kindly! :3

I shall just be patient, and in the meantime am totally up for Awakening folks so it's all good ~ *grins*
