Fire Emblem Echoes: Another Hero King (Shadows of Valentia) Impressions

***No Story or Character Spoilers***

I dont speak or read a word of Japanese so I couldnt give my thoughts on the characters or story even if I wanted to.  In addition to missing out on the story and character development I also only scratched the surface of the skill(tech) system as well as the sidequest system.  All of that is enough to make me not want to call this a review; I need to play it in English and do the postgame content to have a complete opinion on the game, but as it stands I still have a lot of thoughts about the game after one complete playthrough. So…here are those thoughts:

(1/3) LetAdrienEat got me thinking and I feel like I've not seen anyone address how being a famous model at such a young age has affected Adrien? Like it obviously involves him getting dragged around the city and then getting yelled at by a photographer (which he seemed kinda uncomfortable with in stormy weather tbh?) while also having random adults messing with his hair/clothes/makeup has gotta be pretty stressful in itself, not mention the effect it probably has on his already low self esteem.

(2/3) Then add that to his other academic/sporting/social responsibilities and it’s just??? so much??? I imagine while Felix certainly has a hefty schedule himself which is definitely no less challenging, his is more academically based (since he doesn’t fence or model and sports require socialising) and so a lot more static and…quieter?? (I guess is the way to describe it)

(3/3) I guess what this is all leading up to what are your thoughts on it? And also what would Felix do if he saw Adrien running himself into the ground or having a stress breakdown? (Also I just want to say that I love your twin au so much!! And all your art is so amazing so thank you!!)

i think the reason adrien’s modeling situation hasn’t been discussed much yet is because the show hasn’t given us much to discuss. this is one of the main problems right now; they’re taking things on a very slow drag when it comes to learning about adrien and his personal life - and as much as i love knowing that marinette made another hat or has another boy going gooey over her or has suddenly sprouted an elite prowess for video games we never saw from her before, marinette actually isn’t who i want to know about right now! 

i know adrien is going to be explored eventually, don’t get me wrong on that, but i think they might have taken a misstep by showing right from the start that he’s, basically, got a more complex and interesting setup than marinette. and i understand why that is - it’s so little girls watching the show can identify with marinette without too many specific things setting them apart; marinette is supposed to be pretty and sweet and well-loved and comparably bland to the supporting characters - but the problem is that they’ve introduced the probability of so many issues for adrien very early in the game and are now holding off on exploring them! 

this is making the older fans (i.e. the fans more focused on worldbuilding and character development and less appeased by a bunch of glitter and magic) pretty antsy, because now it seems like the writers are going out of the way to create new stuff for marinette to show off in her arsenal of multi-talents (some of which will probably never be relevant again after one episode, like her gaming skills) instead of going into depth with what’s already been established. as i said before, i’m aware the entirety of the first season is supposed to be filler and non-linear worldbuilding so this makes sense, but i can’t help thinking that overall decision in the first place was a poor one. the first season is supposed to be the hook, and what little bait is on that hook isn’t being used!

but yeah, back to the first point in all this; we don’t know what adrien thinks about everything he does. we know he doesn’t want to model as a career but apparently has fun in the shoots, that he doesn’t like signing autographs, that he hates his father’s “money-fixes-everything” attitude to their relationship but is also behaving very well because his father is still grieving for his mother and adrien wants to be there for him. we know a good bit about his home life, but how his fame and work affects him is yet to be seen at all!

like, how is he treated during shoots (aside from the very lax one in the park); like a real person or just a pretty doll? does he mind being touched and manhandled by wardrobe/makeup or is he okay with it? does he like seeing his face everywhere in paris or is it intimidating? can he go anywhere like a normal person without being recognised and accosted? what are those seemingly scheduled meetings with his father, and does gabriel cancel them as often as he cancels doing anything else with adrien? is adrien less lonely now he has plagg? have things changed for him at the animal shelter he volunteers at since he’s become some percentage of cat? what was his first day of school like, when he finally met regular kids just like him? did he become friends with nino slowly and shyly or just immediately latch to him as True Best Bros? does he realise marinette likes him but not reciprocate because he thinks she only likes what she’s seen in magazines, just like everyone else? is that why he’s so set on ladybug; because her opinion of him isn’t clouded by all the glitzy photoshoots and advertising and teen blogging sites? WHAT ARE HIS DIETARY PLANS IS HE EATING ENOUGH BECAUSE IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE HE IS

i mean, shit, there’s just so much to know about him, and yet most of the character-building right now is focused on marinette when adrien is supposed to be (just about, since he is the deuteragonist) equally represented in the show! like i said, i know a lot of this will probably come, but it’s a hard wait when it’s so interesting and all we’re getting thrown at us is either more marinette filler or more shipping development.

but man, in terms of felix and the twin AU, things would be a little different for adrien since he has someone there to tell him when things are unfair - with such a skewed personal life he doesn’t seem to be a good judge himself of when it’s okay to speak out or fight back, and i think that’s why he puts up with so much from gabriel in canon. i like to think if adrien’s really slamming himself into the ground with too much work and emotional stress felix would take some stuff over for him - they are identical twins, after all; a little hairspray and some wash-in tan and you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference save for adrien suddenly being much stricter about boundaries and limits.

I just want to say your Sense8 headcanons are my life right now and you are the absolute indisputable best. You better be working on Disney World. (Also: Harry Potter AU, post-birth) (Also: more Zombie Apocalypse AUs) (Also: More head canons in general you rock.)

this is the nicest thing and i haven’t done one in a while so hey let’s go with disneyland au road trip 2: electric bugaloo was actually somehow way worse than the first road trip, but that’s another post all on its own so 

  • will picks up one of those disney secret guidebooks and keeps trying to tell everyone cool facts and point out hidden mickeys that nomi and neets have already found a thousand times over without a guidebook lawman 
  • sun makes a list of all the shows she has to go see, characters she has to track down, autographs she has to get, and experiences she has to experience, and she drags capheus along with her. peter pan proves difficult, and she ends up almost tackling him somewhere near frontierland 
  • sun and capheus also get caught up in a line near main street during a lull in sun’s schedule, and sun is disappointed when it just turns out to be lito signing autographs for a bunch of excited fans and confused parents who thought he was some kind of mexican disney prince. she gets his autograph anyway and then takes him away to go get their faces painted
  • while they’re in line for star tours, will won’t stop geeking out about all the little references they’ve hidden everywhere like that robot guys and those numbers do you know what those numbers mean and then wolfie interrupts him and asks him where spock is and kala has to jab them both with her churro 
  • a four year old in a frozen mickey cap comes up to riley and kala while they’re sitting on a bench near pixie’s hollow and riley is watching kala devour a giant turkey leg, crying about how she’s lost her parents and how her mommy said that if she got lost she should try and find one of the princesses and there’s two of them here so maybe they could find mommy twice as fast and riley jumps into action and mobilizes the team to reunite this child with her family while kala preens about being called a princess while she’s holding a half-eaten turkey leg 
  • nomi and neets get handsy while they’re riding the haunted mansion, which is really inconvenient for everyone else, especially will, who has to watch lito basically deepthroat a frozen banana with like a family /right there/ 
  • kala, casually eating a big thing of dippin dots, corners wolfie waiting in line for the aladdin show after figuring out that he’s been sneaking off to watch every singalong show in both parks, even the new frozen singalong that nomi and neets are so up in arms about for replacing muppetvision, and the hsm thing 
  • wolfie manages to flip off the camera in basically every ride picture he’s in, lito is ridiculously photogenic, and will sneezes like twice because riley wanted to go on the rapids and /someone/ used the quarter thing to spray them like six times and he’s still the only one that managed to get drenched
  • sun gets them a place to watch the fireworks show ridiculously early, making a fort out of everything daniela and hernando end up buying from downtown disney, and she chases off at least five families by glaring at them  
  • capheus says something during the fireworks show about how he’s in such a wonderful place that he never thought he’d be, and how he’s even more blessed to be here with a family that he loves, and manages to simultaneously make the entire trip worth it for everyone
