Who would you make the happy couple in this game?

Should not have added Balthier and Fran. Should have made it less easy for people to actually choose xD Though Vaan and Penelo are a pretty obvious choice as well since they already have that street urchin bond going on. So to go against the grain I'd probably have to say Ashe and Balthier

Edit: Then I somehow accidentally voted for Baltheir and Vaan lol... Good enough I guess

I always thought that Ashe and Balthier were a canon couple... I guess it's probably because there's so much gameplay between story segments that you forget entirely what was going on by the time you get to the next scene. :shrug:

I think Ashe and ToriJ would be pretty happy together.

Balthier and Fran are canon, though. So they shouldn't even be an option.

I also always saw Ashe and Basch getting together, for some reason.

Fran and and Balthier are just the cutest. They (and their relationship) should've had a much bigger role in the story :)

Clearly the only option here is Ashe and Fran... *cough*

Are they? I never really got that vibe from them, to be honest.

I'm not familiar with the extra stuff related to XII, such as Revenant Wings, so it could be made explicit there, for all I know.

But from the game, I just got the impression that they were good friends whose friendship transcended the bounds of species, like Han Solo and Chewbacca from Star Wars. I can't really see them being romantically involved.

Personally, I voted for Balthier and Basch. Basch could do with some loosening up, whilst Balthier could do being a bit more responsible. I think they'd complement each other well. If they were actually attracted to each other, of course.

Okay, so there's not really any romantic chemistry between them in the game, but to be honest I didn't think there was ANY romantic chemistry between ANYONE, really.

The only romantic chemistry I saw was between Vaan and Penelo, personally and even then it was made slightly more obvious in Revenant Wings​. It wasn't really a game for cliche love romances. I also didn't really see Balthier and Fran getting together: for me they are just to tightly bonded to be nothing else but really close, trustworthy friends.

Oh my God. That reminds me of that one drawing I made in the past... Can I find it?

Yes I can.

Also, no. Both of you. Shh. Fran and Balthier is the canon OTP. I had some evidence somewhere... Dammit Wolf, help me out! :onoes:

The Big Bad Wolf isn't here. He's currently in a battle of wits with the Crooked Man.

Wait, that's a completely separate wolf. My bad.

Good point. Has there been a single non-heterosexual couple in Final Fantasy?

I don't think so if you don't count Fang and Vanille, but I haven't double checked

I'd say Fang and Vanille are a grey area. On the one hand it could be argued that they are romantically involved. There's definite possibility for that in the subtext. But, on the other it can be argued that their bond is more sisterly than romantic.

I was thinking more about confirmed non-heterosexual couples. Of which I don't think there are any.

Larsa x Penelo is the only right choice.


There's also a very devoted slash community to older guy and younger guy though. I've seen a lot of Gabranth/Larsa and Snow/Hope.
