^You can still ship the Raiden puppet with Sara...

Aquwin Sep 13, 2021 10:20PM

Nah bal not caring what happened to her at all just destroyed the ship for me

^More like the writers just fucking forgot about her. Like, completely; I've been going through the NPCs checking their post-quest dialogues and so far you'd be excused for thinking she got deadass Unpersoned in Inazuma or something because nobody seems to remember she even exists. Even her family.

Also keep in mind that's shortly followed by one of the most glaring asspull plotholes in the entire Archon Quest so... yeah. Lots of really half-assed writing in that part.

On the upside, the Shogun does speak very highly of her in her voicelines.

Poor Sara, even Ei dosen't seem to remember her, but I still want to believe in the ship even if MiHoyo is just diggin it deeper

i like this ship :3

also,Yae's so cute here
i thought she's bigger now

Same, even I am a hard core Sara x Baal shipper since before their releases but Mihoyo really did Sara dirty in their story, even Kokomi barely has any relevance to the plot. I'm healing my bitter Sara deprived heart from fanfics, but even Sara x Baal fanfics are just pure angsty unrequited one-sided love and it just hurts — then I stumble upon a fanart of Yae mocking Sara that Baal would never love her like Baal loves Yae and Sara should just give up... This made my heart break more, I wish I could go in the game and hug Sara to say that "Even if your own adoptive family disowns you, or if the Inazuma people turns their back on you, or the Shogun decides to replace you — I'll forever cherish your slot in my main adventure team with my dying Hu Tao and suffering Zhongli..." ;-;

Sara deserved better after everything that happened in the story. Almost like she was cast aside like some disposable pawn.

Then again, Raiden x Yae is just overall a better ship so I'm super conflicted. Plus I'm a degenerate who ships Raiden x Lumine as well as Lumine x Ayaka so my brain is a mess.

^tbf I really can't see Yae and the Shogun - which is still at the helm most of the time post-quest - getting along particularly well. The fox probably couldn't stop talking in circles if her life depended on it while the proxy has preciously little patience for bullshit and shenanigans. Must've made any "business meetings" they had over managing the country mighty awkward occasions...

Don't really see where Yae getting cozy with Ei whenever she's out and about is incompatible with the canonical appreciation and respect the hyper task-oriented workaholics Shogun and Sara have for each other. Raiden's kind of a two-in-one package deal like that.

Here's the line for dead SaraxBaal shipers? Gosh, I really hate how not only Sara but almost everyone on Inazuma story were just secondary NPC, a LOT of petential wasted everywhere-
And the only relevant character was a NPC...
I'll remember you, Teppei, even if Genshin devs don't give you a F gravestone after all what happened-

Takasaki Reika Sep 16, 2021 12:08AM

why're you guys talking about SaraxBaal here? lol

livingice Sep 16, 2021 1:37AM

Sara really got deleted when Signora beat her onto the floor. As if her plot relevance evaporated along side Signora . Honestly I just hope she makes a notable appearance in at least Kokomi's story quest (since there's footage from the trailer that we haven't seen that features Sara and kkomi)

Sakura Cartelet Sep 17, 2021 10:37AM

why're you guys talking about SaraxBaal here? lol

Probably because of how Sara got "shafted" after Inazuma's main story ended. Personally I'm fine with EiMiko, SaraEi, KokoSara, and SaraMiko. The best would probably be MikoEiSara in my book though. Alas there's (almost) no fanart of that ship and only a few fanfics for it.

Nevar forget that Ei prefers the harem route - this is hard canon. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

"Plus I'm a degenerate who ships Raiden x Lumine as well as Lumine x Ayaka so my brain is a mess."

Haha, I'm right there with you. My ship is basically, "Who is Lumine talking to at the moment?"

Sakura Cartelet Sep 22, 2021 10:09PM

Does that include the younger characters like Klee and Diona too?
