Me and claire have talked a looooooooot more about her hahaha. mostly in shippy contexts.
like claire talked about xandra/oboro post-cq (where obo lived cuz ;_; ) where as part of her experimentation xandra disguises herself a bit and spends some time in nestria, and meets oboro at a lesbian bar one night (where oboro goes to drown her sorrows in alcohol and fleeting companionship) and they really hit it off both talking about their regrets about the war (xandra pretending to be a random soldier) and their relationship develops from there
or i was thinking more about laslow as the person she first comes out too and little to her knowledge laslow is trans himself and lazzy is just. so supportive and wonderful and constantly calling her ‘milady’ in private and knows all about ways to help xandy start to explore herself and all the resources etc trans people in that kind of setting use and aaaa he’s so sweet
also i’ll just transcribe a little of the fluff me and claire talked about this morning hehe
Claire: Xandra blushing y/n Me: YES Me: GOOD POST OP Claire: She’s actually the first woman Laslow has ever made blush Me: yes absolutely Me: he himself gets flustered at having this power Claire: Laslow making hearthands off-stage during addresses Xandra is giving and making her actually lose composure Me: AAAAAAAAAA Me: “Honey I love you you’re doing such a good job” Xandra: is dead Claire: D'awwwwwwwwww Me: xandra makes heart hands at laslow once and laslow dies 5 times over tbh Claire: Yes definitely. Laslow isn’t used to women flirting back Claire: Especially ones as beautiful and regal as Xandra
Me: oboro just walking up and intertwining her fingers with xandra’s and leaning her head against her arm and xandra just. being unable to function Claire: Xandra is a lesbian disaster. Me: she is Me: plus laslow Claire: I get the feeling Xandra would be the kind of girl who thought she was gay before she knew she was a women because she always felt uncomfortable in relationships with girls, but once she comes out, she realizes she actually loves women when they treat her as one Me: before, she was everyone’s “lesbian exception” but now the lesbians are just openly drooling over her tbh Me: oh my gosh Me: absolutely Me: that’s wonderful Me: she discovers the joys of being sapphic
Me: selena finding herself starting to fall in love with “xander” and just thinking, wait, do i actually like ‘him’, am i actually not gay…? and then xandra comes out to her and she’s just like oh Claire: Awwwwwwwwww ;_; yes. Claire: Don’t worry, Selena. Your lesbianism is not under attack. She’s just a beautiful trans girl Me: she thought her lesbian senses were failing her but really they were going into overdrive Claire: Isn’t it wonderful that every lesbian in Fates loves the amazing trans bi Xandra Me: i’d imagine xandra and selena are already friends at this point and once selena knows xandra’s a girl she just completely falls head over heels and Me:someone has to point out to xandra at some point “you know she likes you” and then xandra awkwardly works up the courage to ask her buddy selena on a date Claire: Awwwwwwwwwww ;_; Xandra is confident enough to lead a nation but not enough to ask Selena on a date Me: heehehehe it’s true Me: and of course selena in her mind is just like “are you kidding hell fucking YES” but externally tried to keep her cool. but she can’t maintain that anymore once she sees how happy xandra is when she says yes Claire: This is like the two biggest covert lesbian disasters being pitted against each other Me: it is and i love it Me: they probably lesbian disaster make out before even going on their first date cuz they’re just too gay lol Claire: Definitely
