three months
I finally finished Vesperia yesterday. It didn't literally take me three months to finish it so much as I would go a week at a time without playing, then just play for a couple hours. I got pissed off toward the end because I couldn't finish some of the sidequests. I never found the recipe I needed to finish the Everlight BS, or Judith's spear. Oh, well. And what about that dude who was looking for his brother? Was there any payoff for that?

I liked this game fine, and parts of it were really fun, but I never got into it like I did Teh Abyss. I just loved those characters so so much. In this one, I really liked Rita and Judith, and I liked Yuri and Estelle and Karol and Flynn, but... just not the same, you know? It's funny how that happens. I just never got attached to them in the same way.

That little letter in the shoe closet, though? "To Asch, from Natalia ♥"? Dammit, they are determined to get me to squee for A/N. Fine, I did. Now leave me alone. Bastards.

I may play again someday, but first I've got Eternal Sonata, and I want to get Star Ocean IV, and then Sims 3 comes out soon, right? So it will probably be a while. D wants me to trade it in for credit when I get SO4, but I will want to go back and see if I can figure those unfinished parts out.

In regular circumstances, the fact that Asch and Natalia are childhood friends (and promised to each other) should do it for me. This however is not the case. I blame Asch's potty face, his hair, and because I follow you on Guy-Natalia.

But yeah, I spot Asch-Natalia here and there, in different languaged forums.

And I figured you'd go for it when I suggested it, so color me with the purple crayon of surprise. It's got canon going for it, and they do obviously love each other, but I'm weird and have to go off-script. It's more fun that way.

Asch/Nat does seem to have a decent following. I've seen a little Guy/Nat but haven't really found anyone in this fandom that I've clicked with yet. I tried a friending meme and posting to GLW, but nothing happened. I did get four times more reviews on ff.net than I expected, though, so that was nice.

I see you went in with some mighty expectations there.

Asch turned me off. I blame the poorly done anime.

Just being realistic. New fandom where no one knows me and all that.

Yeah, we all have our characters who rub us the wrong way. For example, I hate Peony. He amuses me sometimes, sure, but I still think he's douchey. Fandom seems to love him, though, so different strokes.

For sure.

I wonder who you'd ship if you ever picked up Code Geass. While chances are slim you'd pick my OTP without me interfering... hmmm... *analyzing your past record* CC? Don't think so. Kallen? Possibly. Shirley? I think she's a sue but the fandom likes her. Kagura? You're not into the whole older guy much younger girl thing. Milly? Possibly, but she's got a small role. Euphie? Half-siblings hmmm...

Nah, I don't think I could guess. Your prediction of my preference for Natalia-Asch at least had something to go on, and there are fewer players in Abyss.

I know I watched the first episode long ago when you were first talking about it, but I remember almost nothing about it. It was mecha or something? Apparently it wasn't my kind of thing.

Something about robots, yeah. Decent amount of fic, was hugely active but its been a while now. Lots of nice reviewers though, which makes entry into the ficdom easier for newcomers.

I watch mecha shows for the romance, yeah.

Nice reviewers is always a plus.

That's just the cutest thing.
