A question for lore reasons. Can be answered IC or OOC. Did anyone give you/Faye grief, strange looks, or negative reactions when people discovered that your/her husband is a Miqo'te?
“Val and I have faced our fair share of stares and comments over our relationship. Interracial relationships seem to become more and more common every sun. That being said, we haven’t received as much outright aggression lately, but a couple cycles ago when we first got together, we did encounter a few people marching right up to us to preach about how our relationship was vile. Most of them, in the end, seemed to be lusting after one of us, so I don’t doubt that was a motive, and as such we run into it less now that it’s better known we’re happily together and have been for some time.
But we still receive curious and disapproving looks, and the occasional snide remark. My mother would surely be appalled, were she still alive. And Val’s family, his tribe… I don’t imagine they would be any more pleased with it. They’d mock him, I fear. I think Val has the worse end of it now, though. People see me as a bored noblewoman looking for some excitement and something ‘exotic.’ But him, they see as a Seeker man who’s been tied down, stifled, and emasculated… especially if they know of his former status as a Nunh.”
((Word of god is interracial relationships are rare and looked down upon in Eorzea, so I’ve always rolled with that. I imagine they’ve faced some prejudices during their relationships–and even outside of NPC’s and headcanons, some player characters have also given Faye and/or Val grief over their choice in significant other, which has been a nice reminder and incorporation of the lore! Thank you for the ask!))
