Week of love continues
here with another ship showcase, and we’re going to Story of Seasons once again
with Elise and Raeger. Let’s get real, if these two became a couple they’d be
pretty insufferable to be around. I’m just kidding, but really these two as a
ship! Basically, in my opinion, Raeger is such a bland character you can ship
him with just about anyone and have it make sense, so sure these two work. (I
broke my new years resolution of being nice to Raeger. Oops) But honestly… Not
my favorite ship. I don’t think they have any personality traits that complement
each other. The only thing that makes sense is he is hardworking, and she is a
spoiled rich girl? Even that doesn’t work because Elise still does work for her
farm. This isn’t as left field as the Doug Xiao Pai ship, but I don’t know, it’s
just such a vanilla ship. But again, they’d probably be okay together. They
might even have some humor because Elise is an entertaining character, and
Raeger would kind of resist changing his life completely to fit her, wouldn’t
want to live the rich life, but she wouldn’t want to just drop everything and
live at the restaurant either. So they’d have to compromise.
So how they get
together, is she would taste his food. So say her private chef is out sick
because let’s get real, Elise has a private chef. So she figures why not go try
out that cute little restaurant in town? So she goes, and boom, there’s Raeger.
Like seemingly every other girl in town and Fritz (I’ve written so many ship
showcases of Raeger), she’s instantly drawn to him. She doesn’t have many
friends in town because all of her friends are higher class, live in other
areas, but she finds herself getting along with him. And he finds her to be
nice, someone fun to talk to. After they get to know each other a bit, she
keeps visiting. He notices her coming by more often but doesn’t mind because it’s
someone new to talk to. He starts talking to her about all the amazing things
he’s wanted to try cooking that’s he’s read about. When his birthday comes
along, Elise comes by the restaurant after closing, with a box of expensive,
but great ingredients. He fanboys a bit over the stuff (because trust me, chefs
LOVE good ingredients) and then he cooks for her. They spend the entire evening
together. When he walks her home he kisses her, and thanks her for the
wonderful birthday gift.
I don’t know, it kind of
made sense in my head. But yes, these two are not one of my favorite ships. Are
they bad? No not particularly. Just not my personal favorite. But I do think
they work, and I think someone who likes these characters more than I do could
write a great story with both of them. But maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. I
need to ease up on Raeger hate and let him have his rich princess girlfriend.
If you have any ship
showcases send them to my askbox. Thanks for reading!
