Gaius : Don’t tell me it broke in the fight…
Rowen : Let me take a look. *checks the phone at the speed of light*
Rowen : Looks like the power’s off.
Gaius : *grumbles* Hrm.
Note: Not commenting on Raven/Rita because I don’t ship that either, but …
First, a disclaimer: my parents have a 16 year age gap. Sixteen years. They met when my father was ~46 and my mother was ~30, therefore. (I should add in that the woman I consider to be my mother is not my biological mother, but that’s not really the point.) Despite this huge age gap between them, though, you’d never really know it from the way they act, because they’ve been on the same maturity wavelength since the day they met. They both wanted the same things, they got along fantastically, they clicked. They’ve been married for the past sixteen years (and wow it is strange to think that it has been sixteen years already), and not a day has gone by that it has seemed like their marriage was a mistake.
So, with that disclaimer out there, it is a perfectly fair and logical statement to say that my view of age differences has indeed been shaped by this.
Once both members of a relationship are consenting adults, age is just a number. What matters is not that number, but the maturity involved. Now, of course there are some mitigating circumstances, and I’ll address one of those in another Tales Series ship in a minute, but the point here is that if both people in the relationship are adults and are consenting to the relationship, then age really doesn’t matter. It doesn’t. It’s about maturity.
Now, as far as Alvin and Leia are concerned, I personally don’t see them getting into a relationship until later on down the line, when Leia’s closer to eighteen/nineteen/twenty. This, however, has zero to do with real-world consent laws (because after all, Rieze Maxia/Elympios are not America and America’s age of consent isn’t even consistent within all of its own states, much less the entire world!), but more to do with the fact that after all they’ve gone through, Alvin and Leia need time to build their friendship to best friendship and then to a romantic relationship. I see them getting together years later not because of anything silly like a numerical age, but because when I consider these two characters, I think that they would need that time. They absolutely would.
I’m honestly not sure that I have ever hated a Tales Series meme more, so THANK YOU OP.
So that picture I reblogged with Aigis got me thinking about Leia. Apparently that means it’s time for a Leia lovin’ rant!
I think this one is my favourite in the whole book.
Now I have everyone’s Allium Orb maxed. The Allium Orb command and extractors just became useless >.>
I grind too much…
I just got access to Bullet Cruxification but the SP cost to equip the skill is so high XD
I guess it’s time to farm some enemies…
Musee’s quite buddy buddy with everyone, though. Or maybe I should say, “body body”. Ahaha.
I guess that’s true. And Alvin just loves to play along doesn’t he, which also serves to add to my count of “Alvin no” and “Musee no” for the game XD
