So…this is a weird idea for a thread I had when I decided to try and replay the Heroes Rise Trilogy again. I’m not gonna get too into how I played the game previously, but long story short I never really played “myself” in the trilogy, I kinda RPd as Goku, the character in my avatar. But this time I wanted to play as “me”, and romance someone else to see how it went.
But the thing is…I’ve NEVER romanced anyone but Lucky, not counting the almost forced Black Magic romance in the first game. I hear a lot of people say she’s kinda boring, and I sorta get that complaint but I personally really enjoyed interacting with her, found her pretty cute, and with Black Magic’s whole ultimatum in HP, I just sorta gravitated towards the nice girl. I decided I’d try to stick with BM this time around, but it got me thinking…I wanna hear how people talk about the Love Interests throughout the series, the stories they had and their personal opinions on them. I imagine it’ll be far more interesting than the thing I’m about to type up, so it’ll be fun to read. This isn’t exclusive to the original trilogy either, so feel free to talk about Redemption Season’s LI’s if you so desire.
Lucky…well, the game immediately gets me to like her at least a little bit with your backstory with her. It’s kinda cute to learn some more about your MC’s past and it kind of made me grow a little attached to Lucky from the start since my MC had prior history. I don’t believe I flirted with her from the start, at least on my original playthrough, since I was trying to stay loyal to BM until I decided I didn’t want to be with her anymore (IE: That Ultimatum), but I immediately decided I wanted to be her friend. This turned into romance as I went through the game and…well…Lucky’s fate at the end horrified me. I felt terrible like I had somehow done something wrong, that her condition was my fault. I felt really down for a bit, at least until the ending of HP when I got hyped about the final installment.
Speaking of which, onto Herofall. Throughout the start of the game, Lucky was obviously in a coma for me, but seeing her awake later on, and being with her again after HP was absolutely satisfying, especially since that leads to the kickass fight with Rebellion and such. Lucky didn’t do much at the end of the game, but that was fine, it was your story after all, but I was really happy with Black Magic near the end, for becoming a better person. And the ending with Lucky was satisfying enough for me, so I enjoyed her romance option. I just haven’t had the courage to try anyone else.
So feel free to discuss the love interests now, however you’d like, and whomever you’d like to talk about.
