On the "cold and bitter" assassin and the magical girl that cares for him. [Dec. 5th, 2010|10:05 am]

Dear Fire Emblem fandom:


Jaffar x Nino is NOT pedophilia. Nino is 14 years old and Jaffar is 16. They're both old enough to at least have an idea of what they're getting into if they develop feelings for each other, and in no way Jaffar is leading her on - in fact, did you miss the parts in which he pushed her away repeteadly in the beginning, and Nino would have nothing of it? The only time she rejected him was when he told her that he couldn't be her friend, right before he told her he loved her, and Nino took that as "I hate you" instead.

Nino isn't some little girl who doesn't know what romantic love is. Heck, her supports with Rebecca have them discussing about guys and crushes! And Jaffar loves Nino and would never force himself on her. Heck, when Matthew lied to him about having Nino as a hostage, he was ready to let Matt kill him if it meant Nino would be safe! Even if you dislike the couple, you just can't deny that they care for each other - if not for Jaffar, Nino would've died at the hands of either Sonia or Ursula, and if not for Nino Jaffar would've never developed feelings of his own.

And for the record, Erk is 15 years old. A little older than Nino and a little younger than Jaffar, but still in the same age bracket. If you're gonna bash Jaffar/Nino and then support Erk/Nino in these grounds, then STFU.


No love,

Maria.

*applauds*

I've noticed this pairing's been getting quite a bit of flack on the anon meme for being unhealthy, Nino being too young, etc. Glad to see this defense!

Bwah? The anonmeme is on its case too? I haven't checked it in a bit, but that's baffling. Considering that his care for Nino is what saves Jaffar's life AND that if not for his soft spot for her Nino would've died at the Bern manse, I fail to see how it's "unhealthy".

What made me snap was seeing it bashed on Tv Tropes, by some idiot who openly called J/N "pedophilia" in the middle of Ship To Ship Combat's nideogame section. My reaction was a "YOU DID NOT GO THERE YOU BITCH", delete that nosense *and* write this. :3

Right here, though it's tame compared to what that dumbass on TVTropes said, wtf. Dear people, TVTropes pages are not a forum on which to bash characters and pairings, kthx.

ahahahaha, its' still worthy more than "wtf are these people smoking". Nino/Jaffar, "onesided and abusive to Nino"? Jaffar leaves NOT to abuse her and the twins, but to protect them, and it's not his fault if she goes searching for him instead of laying low with Ray and Lugh. And also, Jaffar is the one who says "I love you" fist, so idk where they get the "onesided" crap.

And sadly, I almost immediately wondered if they were bitter Erk/Nino fans. Which would be hilariously hypocritical, considering that in their ending NINO is the one who leaves first.

Yeah, really. Their romance is essentially a team effort, she reaches out to him and he saves her...it's what makes it such an amazing subversion of the "good and pure girl rescues bad boy" romance it could have been!

Could be.
