I want the V route to be a romantic route.
I want this because he deserves to know a relationship not hurting because of abuse and wrongdoings. I do not hate Rika; but I cannot be the only one who thinks that their relationship is not cute or adorable, but disgusting and abusive.
Neither of them are good for one another at this point - V has become secluded and has lied because of his love for her and for the RFA; I feel perhaps before we see V in the game, before us, he was a lot different; but being in a relationship that slowly becomes one based on abuse changes people. People will try to seclude themselves, they will shy away from what they were once before and the people they knew before. I’m not saying this is how most people in abusive relationships act but I am saying that this is a way some people change in abusive relationships.
Rika’s mental illness’ are not an excuse for her actions. Yes, a mental illness can perhaps influence ones actions, but to completely disregard ones actions because they are “mentally ill,” is wrong. It is ones responsibility (in my opinion) to apologize for what they do during an “episode,” or after they have gotten help - because like it or not, mentally ill, or not, you still hurt someone with your actions, and you should apologize. When I do or say things that are harmful/hurtful during an “episode,” brought on by depression or anxiety, I apologize afterwards, because I know, I still am at fault.
I personally do not think V and Rika should be in relationship while Rika is in the state of mind she is - she needs help - and I’m not sure even if she did get help, if I would want them in a relationship anyway. She still abused him - she still did a lot of horrible things to him - and if this was real life, would you want someone who was abused in a relationship to get back with said person after they got help? I don’t readily think so. If someone abused someone close to you and got help afterwards would you want that person to get back with the person who was abusive towards them? Even if they have gotten help? Maybe you would, but I myself, would not. I had a best friend once who was in an abusive relationship - I hated the boy with my guts for how he treated her. He has gotten help, but I in no way ever want to see her with him again, she deserved better and she still does. He also deserves a good relationship too; one without abuse, and not one with her. Maybe some are more forgiving then me, and if you are, I applaud you, but that is not me.
My point is - is I’d like to see a route for V where you help him realize that there’s more to life than a relationship that hurts you and the other person, that some people aren’t meant for you and you’re not meant for them, to show him again what it is to be in love and not to be hurt at the same time by the one whom you love. And I want Rika to get help - I want her to see V happy and her, herself, be happy too, because maybe they just weren’t meant to be; maybe there is more out there than just what she had, And there is.
All of this is opinion, and I do not wish to see people attacking me for said opinion or feelings, I have seen others opinions and whilst perhaps not completely agreeing with them, I chose to understand them, and not attack them. If you don’t have anything nice to say, do not say it at all. Anyone who wishes to start drama, or fight with me, will be blocked, because I do not want to see it and you are clearly not mature enough to see an opinion and respect that it is ones opinion. Thank you.
