Just a question (not a request i know your lovely askbox is closed), In lots of headcanons and imagines authors prefer to keep our mint blue (or green) daddy alive and well, interacting with the RFA AND Saeran. Do you think that we all just ignore this pesky detail or do you think that time has somehow managed to heal (about) 21 years of murder-cult slavery? Honestly i'm prolly overthinking this lol i doubt anyone cares. But do you guys think that if V lived he would be forgiven?
Ooohh…. okay, this is an interesting question. Honestly, I’d like to believe that they would be able to move on. It’d be something rough to move past (plus imagining V survives), there would probably be a lot of rough relationships, strained trust, arguments… it’d be rough waters. It wouldn’t heal over, they would never really be able to move past it. They’d forever have to live with what happened, knowing how each of them tied into it, and knowing that if they didn’t keep moving…. it’d just keep haunting them and hurting them. All of them. Crap, there’d probably be moments that V would be ready to leave, blaming himself for it all, and would need to be drawn away from the idea, moments where Saeran or Yoosung or really any one gets frustrated and in a fit of rage burst at V. And then they’d have to keep going, resolve it or something, cause that’s what you do in life.
It’d just… it’s impossible to move on and forget that kind of thing. But I think they could keep going anyways ^^
So our little blue baby has definitely already got strained relationships with everyone in the RFA. If you’ve played Jumin’s route in the Christmas DLC we know that Jumin is done with V’s secrets at this point and he isn’t sure what to do about this. This was really shocking to me because we all know that these two are practically each others only friends. We all know Yoosung doesn’t particularly care for V already and a lot of people start to follow this during Seven’s route I believe? Anyway, I’m just trying to say not everyone’s view on V is too great right now. Then they find out this boy was hiding Rika from all of them AND was allowing these awful things to happen to Saeran. I think out of everyone, saying V survived and Rika was still sent to get help in Alaska, Seven and Yoosung would have the hardest time forgiving V. Jumin being the third, and then finishing with Zen and Jaehee being the most forgiving. Honestly, even Zen and Jaehee would have a hard time forgiving V too soon but after some time I feel they all would end up forgiving him. He might not have all of the trust they used to have placed in him but at least they’re all still friends, right? For maybe years a lot of things will be strained with V but I think that with Rika safe and the RFA and Saeran safe as well he’d at least tell Jumin and Seven the whole story and they would help the others understand. But their relationships with V will never be the same, even between him and Jumin.
Saeran and V is a different story. I don’t think Saeran would ever be able to truly forgive him because we know how tainted Saeran’s thoughts on V are, I mean, he shoots the man. No one would force Saeran to forgive V, including V himself. If anything Saeran would tolerate him in public and at parties. Other than that I don’t doubt Saeran despising V. Even if they manage to convince Saeran that Rika was in the wrong and awful to him but so was V. Even though we ignore this V helped Rika take him, he didn’t report Rika to the police for what she was doing, and he didn’t try and get Saeran out and take him to Seven. We know Seven shouldn’t have family or relationships or anything like that but Saeran can hack too it could’ve gotten him a pass in, even if no one else knew except V and Vanderwood, who would be happy work was getting done. But V never tried getting him out, he stayed by Rika’s side because he’d become obsessed with her and this image of her he’d created. He helped, even if not intentionally to make Saeran this way and if Saeran forgave him I’d be surprised.
~Peony is sorry she wrote so much, she had more to say but she’ll leave it at this
