I love me my OT3 ships and I’m constantly changing my allegiance between Hisui/Kor/Kohaku and Chalcedony/Kor/Kohaku and at this point I’m not sure which one I ship the most

Blue Chalcedony/ Blue Holy Agate on Matrix

This beautiful rock resembles a small cave of captured blue clouds and its essence is very much a soothing stone. Its blue energy emits a feeling of as if one were to hold an ice pack to an injury, helping one heal any emotional wounds. It offers calm and positivity, helping one be in the ‘now’, rather than worrying what might (or might not!) be. It’s a wonderful stone for assisting with communication and is particularly good for singers!

This rough piece is one of a few pieces we have chosen to appear at the Venusrox showroom and we hope you can enjoy peering into this small haven of blue. 

My problem with Hearts is that so far everything seems to spiral around romance. You have the main couple Kor and Kohaku, Hisui’s bordering-on-incest love for his sister, Ines and Silver, Chalcedony and Paraiba… Even the first people you help around in the game are a couple who can’t get their feelings across. There’s Beryl’s unrequited feelings for Kor, Amethyst’s fascination for girls, Creed and Fluora, and probably a bunch more I can’t remember right off the bat.

This is a problem to me because for a game that is so focused on the bonds between people and on the feelings of the human heart (“a new meeting between hearts”), they passed up a lot of opportunities to explore family and platonic love, even impossible romantic love. I can’t help but think back about CCS and how well that anime explored different types of loves of all kinds and how Hearts falls really short of it.
