Yotek Posted October 26, 2015 Share Posted October 26, 2015 Finally finished my first route. Went for Fal because I've heard her song before. Trying to shotgun the rest so I can finish in time. Hidden ContentHidden ContentDespite sitting on it, I still am not happy with FalLet me start off with a base that as a MC you are not a good boyfriend. If you have to begrudgingly send your long distance girlfriend letters whom you have never visited in 3 years, then you've got a lot to learn.There are a lot of reasons I can't really forgive Fal. Up until the very end I was super happy with her as a character. She really did play the ideal woman. However, at the end, you learn what you have experienced isn't her real personality. To me, it then felt like the time I spent with her was all fake. I'm sure there are countless Vns that do this, (most tsunderes with their tsun side) however, Fals route ended pretty abruptly. It never allowed you to see the "real" side of her other than that one instance. If you got to spend more time with the "real Fal' then it might have changed things. Instead, you get rushed to the good end where basically as long as you are useful to her she will "love" you.That point in particular really pisses me off. I'm sure we've all be there be it music, sports, or smarts. People will pretend to have interest in you until you are no longer needed for their goals. In friendship and business, that is passable, but in love, that just isn't how it works.The bed scene (hopefully this won't get me in trouble) was salt in the wounds to me. To get the good route you have to bang her. I think that is totally out of the question in a situation like that. She compounds the horribleness by acting like nothing more an outlet for his sexual frustrations. She never even really put on an act for it. I cringed when she said “あいしてる" which was the "I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U" notation during the bed scene. While I could be incorrect, I'm fairly certain the way she said "love" was suppose to be a very strong love for another person as a partner. Instead, she said it with a dark almost condescending voice.I can't argue that Fal has had a rough past. From everything she has said, it sounds bad. While it could be argued we all have some troubles (KS link for greatness) hers is probably worse than most. However, that does not justify her actions. Just because someone has had a rough life does not mean they are above morals. If life is hard, work through it, try your best, cry when you fail, and ask other for help. Using people, scheming, and being cynical will never solve the real problem.As for Fal and Chris healing each other. I'm not certain on it. I first would much rather see Fal heal without Chris. Chris' biggest wound in my opinion is Fal herself. I never felt he was really committed to Ari. As for Fal, if she just leans on Chris to help her, I don't think she will actually ever heal. In addition, only those who wish to be healed can be (at least related to things like depression and what nots (I am not a doctor)). Fal to me did not seem like she really wanted to change the way she was. She said she was wicked, you said you loved her, that's good enough for her.Will the time those two spend together resolve everything, yes and no. I think it will solve itself but I don't think their hearts will ever really open up. As a parting though, I think White Album best describes my sentiment for how their relationship would play out in the future:"Time Does Not Solve the Thorns In Our Heart. It Just Puts A Label of Oblivion On It." Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
