>>134324324> What I'd appreciate is a pairing that doesn't remove all backstory or an interesting setting of one of my fave characters
It doesn’t though. Nothing about Silver or Silvaze necessitates that Blaze has to have her Sonic 06 lore.>just to turn her into a flunky
Again, how does it turn her into a flunky for Silver? Nothing about it necessitates removing the personality, agency, and core values of either character. If anything it accentuates them, because it provides an opportunity for them to play their complementary and contrasting traits off of each other for more interaction and growth.> for a character who gets more focus both in series and out then her.
1. That’s bullshit. Blaze gets the Sonic Rush series with a memorable sound track by the guy who made OSTs for the Jet Set Radio games, and she’s easy furry waifu-bait. Meanwhile Silver gets sloppy seconds in the decent but ultimately forgettable Rivals series and still can’t shake off the stigma of his first appearance being in Sonic 06.
2. Even if that weren’t bullshit, why would it matter in the context of fucking shipping of all things? What, is Blaze herself supposed to be pettily jealous and and resentful of his hypothetical, out of setting popularity? That’s asinine.
