Pairings you like with parent/child conversations that just don't work

(Anonymous) 2013-08-31 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
...I'm not sure if there's a way to not get that to sound clunky, but I tried.

Anyway, I liked Nowi/Henry because I felt like their personalities meshed nicely, but the generic dad conversation with Nah doesn't work for Henry at all. The conversation feels like the dad kind of has to make excuses for Nowi's... well, Nowi-ness, whereas I feel like Nowi and Henry are on roughly the same page. At least the Nowi/Henry epilogue went for the dynamic I feel like the family would actually have, what with Nah being more mature than both her parents.

Also the Noire supports with dads where Tharja explicitly said she couldn't figure out how to hex them or the dad said he was immune to hexes are... weird. I think this happened with Libra on my first playthrough, though I'm pretty sure it happens with Henry, too.

Yeah, Henry's supposed to be good not only on casting curses but also on dispelling them. So him not being able to counter Tharja's is all... eh, lol rly?

(Anonymous) 2013-08-31 07:12 pm (UTC)(link)
I guess I could kind of see him doing it as a solidarity thing so Noire wouldn't feel as bad, but it still seems a little clunky. I haven't actually seen the support so they might have fudged it a little to make more sense, but I kind of doubt it.

The English supports between them don't actually say anything about Henry being able or unable to dispel Tharja's curses, but I've heard something about the Japanese version saying that Tharja's curses were too powerful for him to touch.

Doesn't make much sense considering the game establishes that Henry's power is much more stronger than Tharja's, if I recall correctly, but okay.

IIRC, the Japanese version doesn't say that Tharja's curses were too powerful for Henry, but "too delicate" for him to dispel, which is also bullshit considering how skilled Henry is supposed to be.

Robin if he's Owain's dad. Owain's dad dies taking an arrow for him, but Robin in the bad future betrays Chrom and goes to Validar's side.

Virion if he's Inigo's dad considering how alike they are. You'd think a guy like Virion would be high-fiving and brofisting Inigo's efforts, failed as they are.

Chrom as Kjelle's father. His cooking made Vaike pass out, so he's...helping Kjelle make food that won't make the entire army barf their guts up? Huh?

Yarne accusing Lon'qu of all people of cheating on Panne. Because a gynophobe is really capable of that. I get that it wasn't actually about that in the end, but still.

Doesn't M!Robin's parent-child support with Owain say that he disappears instead of dying like the other potential fathers of Owain though?

Does it? I admit I haven't gotten that pairing yet but I assumed it was the same, since all parent-child supports tend to be.

They slightly alter the dialogue depending on the father, but the overall supports are more or less the same.

In the M!Robin/Owain parent-child support, Owain says that they "were separated in the chaos of battle" and that "[he] never saw [his father] again" to fit the Robin becoming Grima situation while in the other generic father supports, Owain says that he saw his father die.

Aaah. Yeah, that makes more sense. I hadn't read those supports yet so I wasn't sure. Thanks, anon!

No problem! o/

With Virion I can sort of understand, because a lot of his supports suggest that he has some kind of ulterior strategic motive behind his flirting and philandering, while Inigo... doesn't. It would be hard to make that clearer in the text, though. You could also bring up a similar issue with Gregor, though I think Gregor might also be kind of disappointed that Inigo is not charming pants off all ladies.

Yeah, I like Chrom/Sully but Kjelle's dad support doesn't really work for Chrom and Lucina's sibling support doesn't... really work for her. Then again, I feel like Kjelle is kind of confusingly handled in general, so...

Also I'll admit, that discrepancy actually made me enjoy Yarne and Lon'qu's support because I found it simultaneously hilarious and kind of sad in a "wow, you really didn't get to know your family at all, did you" kind of way.

True, Virion's supports show a lot of depth to his flirting, especially Cordelia and Maribelle. Inigo just plays this up cause of his whole stepford smiler thing.

Kjelle being afraid of a bug made me go WTF, though we could always chalk it up to Why Did It Have To Be Snakes that was never mentioned before (if Kjelle's other interactions pointed out that she had a fear or bugs).

...oh yeah, I didn't really think of that. :/ Lon'qu died when Yarne was fairly young, I imagine, so...yeah.

(Anonymous) 2013-08-31 08:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, plus Kjelle seems a little too serious to be the sort who'd use Falchion to cut up apples, unless they changed that part of her support. I think it works pretty well for M!Morgan, Cynthia, and Inigo, but it reeeeally doesn't work for Kjelle.

(Anonymous) 2013-08-31 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
No, they didn't. The supports were cute and I do like Chrom/Sully and Aether!Kjelle, but the generic sibling supports just don't work. Kjelle is a total stickler for proper weapon and armor maintenance, she'd probably give someone a knuckle sandwich for using their OWN weapon to cut fruit.

Oh, and her running away from her responsibility of taking up Lucina's mantle if she dies does not suit her at all.

Brady's parent-child support with Ricken going "WAIT I ENJOY TEA TIME IN THE FUTURE WHAT" makes no sense whatsoever. Ricken's support with Maribelle has them drinking tea together and FP2 has him showing tea leaves to Brady in order to identify himself.

(Anonymous) 2013-08-31 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, I feel the same way about Brady and Frederick, given that Maribelle/Frederick was about Maribelle learning how to be a steward. It's not quite as confusing, but I was still kind of ??? about it.
