final for tifa lockhart
this one is real simple and prob the one i've wanted the longest but please like i know aerti is kind of a rarepair but they're perfect together and i'm not about to budge on this and like ship tifa with cloud (just ignore what my shipper on her says i wrote that over a year ago okay) so yeah. tifa cares a lot about aerith and honestly it's gonna be super emotional for them to reunite, at least on tifa's end. it might be a bit of a slow burn tbh but trust me it's gonna be great once we get them to the dating point. i just want cute girlfriends who will kick ass together all right i have a lot i could say about this so yeah!!!!!
final for soma cruz
i'm willing to be flexible on this; you can either go with alucard or arikado i'll be more than happy to ship soma with either one. castlevania is a big franchise yeah but i don't wanna intimidate anyone who might want to get into it or are interested in alucard in gen. you honestly only have to be familiar with both sympathy of the night and aria of sorrow to do this, and both games entire scripts are on the castlevania wiki so you could literally just read everything there and that will take care of it p much. all i ask is that we don't go like into dawn of sorrow events here bc i. hate that game oops.
final for togami byakuya
ngl i need this one real bad in my life bc both togami and fukawa are garbage and the ship is garbage but i'm firmly placed in that trashcan. i really want to play this out bc i'm very amused by like how fukawa can say some of the weirdest shit you've ever heard and togami is just like i fucking hate you. can you tell i've shipped this for a long ass time bc boy i've been into dr from the very beginning. i'm also more than happy to do ship ya boy with genocider syo at the same time as well bc it's like not really a poly but it is to me and i just want togami to be off his guard constantly. also i mean who else would be able to put up with this shitty boy. :/
final for sophie hatter
full disclosure here this is 100% set in stone in sophie's canon bc they are married pretty much from when i took her. there's already some stuff established here like there's a magic shop under howl's name in elysion that sophie is currently running and tbh i have a lot of ideas for stuff involving that and just them in general. idk sophie is very lonely without her husband around so it would be fantastic to have him around for her since she literally will not be seeing anyone else nor will she be breaking off her marriage for anything. the domestic vibes here are going to be super real let me tell you.
final for naminé
tbh i only ship naminé with kairi so she's the only canon kh character i will accept as a final for her so please don't like make someone else hoping that i'll make an exception or something like that bc it's not happening. >> anyway naminé is super connected to kairi for more than one reason and it's prob gonna weird her out how they can't like combine and become one person here, but she's still gonna want to spend a lot of time with kairi anyway. this one is likely going to be another slow burn too. naminé doesn't really have the concept of love grasped rn even tho she's more than comfortable saying that yeah she does feel things. plus i'm just saying they can have double dates with sora and riku so i mean. it'll be good.
final for shinozaki ayumi
g o d like as far as i'm concerned ayushiki is 100% canon and i took ayumi from a point when it was at like the most possible for it to become canon but also the most depressing place to take ayumi from so like just be aware that she is super depressed rn so i'm not expecting yoshiki to just come in and fix all her problems bc she's also stubborn as shit. it doesn't really matter where you take yoshiki from here bc tbh he's in love with her no matter when you take him, but it's gonna be super confusing for him to like deal with what ayumi's going through the earlier you take him so might wanna keep that in mind? plus it might make her more depressed to know that he doesn't understand a lick of what she's talking about oops.
final for serah farron
so. technically serah is still engaged to snow and all that, but i'm willing to just toss that in the trash provided the right kind of plot goes on here so yeah. another slow burn. it's gonna take a while for serah to 1) get over snow and 2) have feelings for noel afterwards so there's like nothing instant here, esp since i took her super early in xiii-2 canon so they only just barely know who each other are. there's also like the added angst of serah having no idea that she's a seer and that she's gonna die at some point bc of it so in that regard you can take noel from whenever you like bc it's always going to hurt no matter what. but yeah like noel pining after serah is my shit oops. >>
final for wadanohara
another one that is 100% set in stone. i took wadanohara from the true ending so they've both told each other that they love each other and all that and she is not going to budge on this one either. samekichi is the only person she could love as deeply as she does, and just being apart from him is like the literal worst for her rn since they had just reunited too rip. i do have to say that - if you're going to do this - you have to app true end samekichi. i don't really want to have this relationship go on at a different balance bc of like a different ending dynamic so please think of that before you start an app for him. otherwise it's pretty much open season and i feel like there's so much to do here since they kinda just got into a relationship so like please make my samewada dreams comes true? they're super cute.
final for crow
i mean. they actually kiss in canon what more could you want. the problem is tho is that i see crow as having like no real idea what he was doing there so you guessed it!!!! another slow burn!!!!! since crow is a robot he doesn't really have a good idea about what makes humans tick beyond what he's read about so getting him to like realize that being someone's best friend and being someone's boyfriend isn't. exactly the same thing. i mean it is but it isn't, at least not the way crow thinks it is. and honestly he's got a better shot of learning about that from seto than anyone else bc otherwise crow is just gonna keep dicking around for eternity and my robot son will never learn about love whatsoever. isn't that just sad...........
