character: hate them | don’t really care | like them | LOVE them | THEY ARE MY PRECIOUS
ship with: Vincent/Tifa used to be my guilty ship way back when, because Tifa has to fix people and Vincent is a fuckin’ mess. That’s morphed into a BFFs situation these days tho.
I’m actually not sure who I’d ship him with these days?
friendship them with: Cloud, Red XIII, Tifa. I guess Cid is canonically the party member he’s most friendly with but I don’t particularly care about Cid. Cloud and Red are like his ‘Ex-Hojo’s-Guinea-Pig bros’ also Red is the only one who’s going to also outlive everyone else. Tifa is pretty good with everybody and I think she’d want to help Vincent out if she could after she got over the fact that he used to work for Shinra. So yeah that’s where the whole 'hobo Vincent hangs out at Tifa’s’ thing came from.
general opinions: It’s better now that I’m old enough to take this angst bucket less seriously because holy hell he’s fun to poke fun at but also kind of precious. I mean, depressed ex-assassin who turns into demons is an amazing string of words.
I guess on the one hand you’ve got over dramatic angst, but I mean Vincent did fuck up his life pretty bad so he has every reason to be depressed and weird.
He could definitely use a change of clothes.
I always assumed Vincent was way better adjusted post game then AC ended up having him be. I also tend to assume he includes all the horrible shit he probably did while he was Turk under his 'Things to Atone For’ list, not just The Jenova Project.
