>>3471978No idea, just ignore it
>>3472293Yes you can, besides she will always gonna be that one gay lizard that wants to bang all the cute ladies
Less whining, more posting.
They just posted a DianaxLeona story on Riot's site
Dangerously based. Riot knows how to handle its characters and how to fully embrace their potential. They have no equal when it comes to external content and media.https://mobile.twitter.com/LeagueOfLegends/status/1405587652661813250
>>3477100nice, I haven't really been paying attention to league lore for a while, but is this the first time they're showing diana and leona officially together or have they done it before?
>>3477048>>3477100>>3477106>>3477107>Leona/Diana canon after all these yearsAmazing. Was always my favorite LoL ship, so this is wonderful news to me.>>3477134Back when they barely did lore outside of some gags and profiles, there were a couple potential hints, but more stuff leaned towards Leona/Pantheon. Then they retconned both of those relationships a while back. Then they retconned just Leona/Diana back where it had been more-or-less, and now this.
>>3477100Story was pretty good for teen characters, usually don't like drama caused from misunderstandings because it makes characters just seem retarded or is a cheap way for drama but the characters upbringing and personality make it acceptable. The format for presenting the text was fun to read and only real gripe is the accompanied drawings, they kinda seem too modern and generic, ripping me out of the story a bit, having a more 'sketchy' or unique style would have been nicer i think. if only diana could be cheesed as a support, neeko remains my lesbo of choice
Wonder what the odds are of some Vi/Caitlyn in Arcane?
>>3471978you are free to draw it yourself or commission =)
>>3471978League of legends players
>>3477901>>3477906I do love magical girlfriends. This AU plus the Wild Rift commercials managed to totally sell me on this ship.
>>3477100While I'm pleased that they had the guts to finally canonize it - the thing reads like a high school au fanfic. But it just confirms what we already knew - Leona is the cool, smart, and athletic girl that everyone likes and wants to go to the dance with and Diana is the nerd loser every kid and even the teachers bully. Leona is notably attractive and desired by other Champs too (ex. Rell and Evelyn) Good for Leona though. Got herself a goth gf. Diana would probably be hotter if she kept her black hair.
>>3478417>While I'm pleased that they had the guts to finally canonize it - the thing reads like a high school au fanficThis is why I like it. Riot embraces the fanficness of it all. KDA, Pentakill, it all reads like AU fanfics.
>>3477308I want to bet pretty high. Would be cute to see teen Vi before her memory wipe meeting little Caitlyn. I notice that the card game underlines canon ships. It did so with Diana/Leona. While Mf flirts with the Vi card, Vi politely redirects attention to Caitlyn being a thing. If riot gives me vi/cait and sej/ashe that's enough I will stop making demands. I'll buy rp. Until there's new hotness.
>>3478563>>3477308I'm very into Caitlyn but can't into Vi. Dunno why.
>>3478563>sej/ashedid they retcon ashe being married?
>>3478668If thats what it takes that's what it takes.( It's something they would never do because Ashe and Trynd are based off the CEO and his wife.) Seeing the height difference between young Sej and Ashe in the comic was euphoric. I always found it funny that Ashe cares more about Sej dying than Trynd.
>>3478563heres my guess around arcane and those characters. note i only saw the jinx trailer.>Jinx does some crime and Vi happens to be there and notices her>Vi expresses wanting to focus on trying to catch jinx to caitlyn but is told to focus on her normal job>eventually Vi and Jinx meetup and something goes wrong as they try to reconnect and Vi either dies or gets badly hurt.>cait is now invested in capturing jinx for revenge.
>>3500618im so damned sick of k/da stuff i see it everywhere fics and other things
>>3501601Kindly fuck off back to tumblr.
>>3501603league is popular in korea, and riot has taken notice and tried to appeal to them in turn
>>3505388whose shes eating out?
>>3505388Neeko deserves all the cute ladies in the world
>>3506663>"bump" for a thread that wasn't even on page 5
>>3510619this image is a lie, everyone knows caitlyn is the top
>>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dqvTH1t1YYWtf?! why i'm a furry now?
>>3519586Who could resist an efficient 4/3 body and board-wide buffs every other turn?
>>3519586>>3523963Poppy/Miss Fortune is super broken and cute af.I had a ten w run and only lost it because i let a Veigerfag live too long.
>>3524473ANOTHER Runeterra Poppy is broken update, the Poopy/Lulu deck is also insane.
>>3524473>>3524520Enjoy her while you can, because they're going to nerf her hard. I expect she's going to be a 2/3 before all is said and done.
>>3524521They also have to nerf like a couple of Yordle spells too, its way too easy to wreck any old deck just using 1 mana units and some right also low mana spells, its fucking hilarious seeing edgelord decks getting wreck by a bunch of children's story book chars, only Sion is dangerous if you have bad luck.
>>3524524They're going to nerf stone stackers, Poppy, pokey stick, and probably purpleberry shake.Incidentally, LoR actually has a surprising ammount of lesbian content in it. The card interactions between Irellia + Blossoming Blade implies that they are/were lovers, and Nami + Marai Songstress literally call eachother bleoved.Shame that there's no good interactions between Diana and Leona, but they did add those cards before the reveal that they were gay.
>>3524526Yeah, Runeterra is a goldmine for yuri shipping.
>>3524526Oh, and whatever is going on between these two.
>>3524528Thats a most heterosexual art for a card game...totally not gay at all...
>>3524690Not league, but if you want to see THE most heterosexual card game art, check out this card from Mythgard.https://mythgardhub.com/card?id=304
>>3524889das gay, i wish MTG had any gay in it, they could have had but they fucked it up by giving a writing gig to Greg 'JUST My Shows' Weisman.
>>3525097MtG has Secret Rendevouz. Shame that card is dogshit.Also I still have foolish hope for Chandra and Nissa. I know it's pure copium but I don't care.
>>3525097what kind of yuri content would be ideal in a card game, scenes depicted on card art or more mechanical representations of yuri?
>>3527916The lore nigga, the lore.
What fics do you like? I liked these two:https://archiveofourown.org/series/206741 (Riven x Irelia)https://archiveofourown.org/works/16832692 (Riven x Kata, werewolf au)Wish there were fics of my main (Annie) but sadly the only one is a not-very-well-written Annie x OC...
>>3527916Loser has to kiss the winner after every match
>>3530360>Yep, that tasted purple.
Idk what you guys were smoking when you said poppy needed a nerf. SENNA needs a nerf.>slow spells become fast spells>she only needs 3 kills to level up>spawns a darkness every attack>spells cost one less and her own spell kills target and debuffs other attackers by 2Also she's het just delete her from the game.
>>3537746You're on crack if you think paying 2 mana to deal 2 damage every attack is more powerful than giving your entire team +1/+1 every attack. Senna Darkness is a tier 2 deck at best. Poppy is in two different tier 1 decks.
>>3541926Paired with a Veigar yeah you're getting 3 damage out of the gate which does do more than you'd think especially when they are adding damage exponentially. Also Dess and Ada are a cute card.
>>3542488That card is super cute. But Darkness is still a bad strategy compared to all of the other broken shit out there.Nerf Sion
>>3545790https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/80807367Someone stitched it all together.
>>3524889Too bad games dead
They are so perfect together
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32oT-CWJOC0Nice to finally get a good look at Caitlyn. I know the show's gonna mostly be focused on Vi and Jinx, but I'm hopeful there'll be a decent amount of her relationship with Vi too.
>>3567457She looks weird, not gonna lie
>>3567457Sweet, given Riot's track record it's almost surely gonna be rubbish but we'll definitely get some good Cait/Vi fics and maybe some Vi/Jinx incest as well.
>>3569094Lol I love that she's an official artist for them now. I wonder if this was in the portfolio she submitted.
We all see it right
>>3573286Powder about to get even more Jokerized.Also Arcane was kino.
>>3569094>>3572085I'm gonna go ahead and assume thats canon from now on.
>>3573286Admittedly I know nothing of League of Legends outside that one futa doujin with really nice art.(I know I know but Jinx looked really crazy and hot)And while I have no intention of playing the game itself Arcane was awesome and brought all the feels.So now I ship Jinx Vi and Caitlyn together.Also Neeko is adorable and deserves a harem of ladies.
>>3573896shut the fuck up
>>3573896So I went looking for some yuri doujins/comics not a huge selection and unfortunately I can't draw comics myself do not have the patience for panels and such.But I found this cute doujin? Although I assume its already been seen but just in case it hasn't.https://e-hentai.org/g/1471929/b08b015bf2/
>>3573896Jinx seems to be obsessed with her sister in Arcane, not only that but this was supposed to do well in China, so good luck with that ship.
>>3574748Is it not doing well? I thought it was amazing personally and since I didn’t know anything about LoL Arcane at least has me invested in its story.
>>3574748Jinx literally gets mad when Caitlyn calls Vi her partner in the first adventure mode of Runeterra that got released yesterday.I think they are gonna milk it like crazy but never go more than subtext with Vi and Caitlyn.>>3574818Its doing great, that anon was just going China Bad...in relation to a fucking franchise that has 3 canon lesbians and surely some gay guys in the future.
>>3574833Wait who are the lesbians?
>>3574854Neeko, Leona and Diana.
>>3574854>>3574862Neeko, leona, and diana are the confirmed lesbos. Fiora is highly suspected to be a lesbian due to Swain pulling a secret from her and saying "She spurned so many suitors...A wonder they did not see why.." and her valentines day skin is crowning Vi. There are bishit champs too. Rell (has a crush on Leona and Seraphine), Evelynn, and Nami (confirmed poly with a girlfriend which is gross). Miss Fortune is implied to be interested in Vi in the card game and not into any males so she could be lesbian too. Evelynn offers herself as Morgana's consort in the coven skin line while aggressively coming on to Ahri. She teases Leona about Diana if she manages to kill her.
Arcane was kino as fuck, I thought /u/ would be jumping all over it but I guess the /u/ hasn't appeared in the show yet. Big hopes for Caitlyn/Vi. No idea who Jinx's love interest would be, there probably isn't going to be one. disclaimer: I know nothing about league but I play a lot of TFT with my friend
>>3575291I've seen what feels like a big uptick in Vi/Cait stuff in general, and they haven't even actually met yet in the show, outside one preview.Can't wait to see what content starts cropping up after they actually team up.
>>3575291>>3575297You're -hot-, Cupcake
>>3573286Horrible character design? Yes.
>>3576300Videogame writers think the only way of making a "strong" female character is by making her a dude with tits.
>>3576190Y E S
>>3576316This isn't /v/, anon. If you want to say anything, say something instead of relying on meaningless buzzwords.
>>3576306League has been varied with their personalities due to being a MOBA and countless characters. It is what it is
>>3575291>but I guess the /u/ hasn't appeared in the show yetWell, this statement aged poorly.
>>3576190>Asks if she wants women or men>Sticks her with a random man while she gets information>3 minutes later she comes out to see Cait chatting up masked lady in the private roomsWell I guess that answers that question
>>3576427League of gaycops moar liek
>>3576300That's not true at all, did you see those thighs ? I find her way hotter than Cait with that animation.
>>3576300Yeah, no.You can 100% appreciate the difference between men, even pretty men, and women on this show.I think you just have /v/mind
>posting these hideous screens
>>3576300Shes a tomboy. What even is a feminine trait? Wanting to wear a dress? You're fucking dumb.
>that glimpse of Cait being a classy female company enjoyer be still my heart
>>3576507This. Snu snu.>>3576300I disagree with that. Vi is pretty maternal and the way she acts is on-point some older sister stuff.
>>3576672Wait till next week when they kiss and make up for the art of Jinx and Caitlyn one upping each other eating Vi out
>>3576683Go back to /v/ please.
>>3576688I am from /co/ and /tv/
>>3576683Keep lurking since you miss obvious things.
>>3576689Please go to your slightly less grimy containment boards then.
>>3576687Given the portrayal of Vi and Jinx in the games, something tells me that isn't how things are gonna play out.But if people draw it anyway, that'd be great.
>>3576789league's cardgame's new PVE mode they released with Arcane has them acting cute and friendly with each other, in Vi's story she goes and gets Jinx's weapons back for her while solving crime and in Jinx's she goes looking for Vi to give her a present
>>3576827Huh. Well, alright then.How is that game anyway? Arcane's making me want to play LoL again, but given the inherent toxicity (though I only ever really play bot matches anyway)... TFT any good?
>>3576858TFT is still one of the better autobattler games out there, haven't played it in a while but I've not heard it's gotten any worse from friends who do play.I started the Card game exclusively because of Arcane, the PvE is pretty decent, you're given a standard starting deck and then you upgrade it and add cards as you go along the map so your collection doesn't matter, the only thing that does is having a copy of the Champion card to play as them, but the Arcane stars are all free so that's nice.And of course as usual the worst part about League of Legends is actually playing League of Legends
I don't know much about league character lore, so I wasn't expecting any hint of gayness from Arcane. I thought Jayce and Caitlyn were going to be together for good until I watched act 2.>>3576858TFT is fun if you enjoy the autobattle gameplay. It's very chill and not toxic at all since there's no teamplay involved (yet).
>>3576879League lore mostly is supplemental to everything in Arcane. You aren't missing any key details. i.e the volatile blue crystals used to generate magic are the souls of brackern - a species of crystal scorpion. You can hear them "singing" and when they explode its actually countless brackern screaming because their stored consciousness dies with the crystals. Meaning each destroyed crystal killed millions of ageless intelligent beings at once. This is really the first time the story is being fleshed out in front of people and they do a lot of retconning because the game is so old.
I hope Vi and Cait get a real romantic moment before this is all over
>>3576978I think we might get a kiss before the final battle, since I don't think this series is ending on a happy note. I've been waiting for this day since Rito revealed Vi all those years ago. I can't believe this is happening.
>>3576858The card game shows off the world the best.It’s very confusing at first but the AI can be easy
>>3576980I think that's overly optimistic. I expect the most we'll get is simmering sexual tension between colleagues (we're already halfway there).
Jinx needs a love interest, any ideas
>>3577126her sister obviously
>>3577126Introducing Zi, a muscular cocky girl with a sidecut
>>3577116Censorship in other countries is the biggest obstacle. Dialog can be easily changed or toned down, a kiss would have to be outright removed and I dojnt think they wanna do that
>>3577298>>3577116Stop playing dumb, they literally had a sex scene on the show. There's literally nothing stopping them, nothing is off limits. Even though I hate the ship, the kiss will 100% happen, if not an implied sex scene.
>>3577298Nigga get a grip, the moment this got to Netflix every bet its off.>>3577310x2 except for the faggotry about hating the only good ship on the show.
>>3577310Tencent is stopping them. They want the show to be a success in China so they are probably not gonna show something too explicit
>>3577310Hetero sex is not the same homo scenes when it comes to censorship in different parts of the world, I'm baffled that this even needs to be explained.
>>3577320China will probably get a censored version but the western world will see some sort of Cait x vi for sure. I'm praying. Pray with me.
>>3577320>China BadLiterally go back to r3ddit, Arcane is not gonna be a thing in mainstream China just by it having characters like Ezreal and other pretty boys.Also, nice concern trolling.
>>3577351Arcane doesn't even have Ezreal or other pretty boys, so I don't really see your point.
>>3577351League is huge in China
>>3577339This.Character goes separate ways to their position for final battle. Character runs back for a quick kiss before running away again. 5 second kiss scene gets removed for Chinese/Russian/Arab audience. Kiss is never directly referenced after. Rito and netflix continues winning every demographic ever. The prize justifies whatever minor editing they have to do. There isn't even dialogue they have to rewrite. The mandarin version of this scene has vi saying "What do you think? Do you want a handsome boy?" That seems more complicated than cutting out 5 seconds of animation.
>>3577126tristana, especially if she's the gimp suit yordle
>>3577126Jinx needs a fucking hug, but I suspect all she gets is her perma pink eyes and crazy.
>>3577359Unless a second season of Arcane shifts focus to other cast members of LoL. Which would probably be the smartest move.
>>3577351Arcane is the biggest show on weibo right now.
>>3576789>>3576827>>3576861Depends on if LoL and the comics take place at an "earlier" time compared to the card game
>>3577383>The mandarin version of this scene has vi saying "What do you think? Do you want a handsome boy?"Did they edited Caitlyn talking with a chick by putting a gigant Poro on that scene?
>>3577383To be precise, the "You're hot" line got replaced with What do you think and "man or woman" got replaced with do you want a good looking guy.
>>3577412I don't know, I only saw the previous clip in mandarin on bird app. Point is, I don't think editing is going to be an issue. They could replace the kiss with a hug for censored countries too. I think the problem might be believable development and how the story goes in Act 3. If it's pure action or a lot of antagonism starts between Cait and Vi, e.g. Vi blaming Cait for what happened with Jinx, we might not get the mood for a kiss. But they managed to sneak shit like this in act 2 even while Vi was dying, so if they don't pay off, twitter dangerhairs will probably get pissed and accuse Rito of baiting. They're nobody's main demographic but somehow corporations give a shit what they think anyway.
>>3577412>>3577426>replace with a hugDepending on when/how the kiss happens, they could just snip it out as the easiest option. Ala scene end into a scene transition.Sides the bigger concern will be the nonstop bitching by supposed 'gamers' since Jayce is the villain.
>>3577408Well Arcane is already by far rito's best attempt ever to expand League's universe beyond League itself, so I wouldn't be surprised if the card game's depictions of them is how they want to go forward.
>>3577426>that soft, intimate little thumb caressGod bless french animation.
>>3577445>>3577426I still dont think we're getting a kiss. It's going to be verbal only. A date invitation or some feelings being acknowledged, whatever, something easily dubbed over in another language. I'll gift a vi or cait skin to someone here if I'm wrong and I certainly dont mind being wrong in this case.
>>3577126Both Vi and Caitlyn, duh.
>>3577320>>3577327>They want to the show to appease Muh ChinaWho said that? I'll come back to you in a week to laugh at you.
>>3577631wait what it is
>>3577558I mean, the show takes place years before the game, doesn't it. Them getting together in the show seems a bit fast when their thing in game seems to be like they're on the edge of fucking.
Hoping we get a Diana/Leona series. Maybe some Neeko/Nidalee too.Kinda weird how LoL doesn't get talked about much around here despite some canon gays around.
>>3578111>kinda weirdWhat is there to talk about? It's purely a Moba up until like three years ago.
>>3577662Because it's LoL's biggest market?>>3578111I think next series is probably Bligewater, it can follow the same gritty, more grounded approach to the current series. I dont think theyre ready to jump into full on mage wars so soon.
>>3578111Everyone seems to think next series is Noxus, and for what it's worth I think that's a safe bet. If that's the case I think LeBlanc and a young Katarina/Cass are the safest female champs to show up. Maybe some Ionia champs if it's about the war.
>>3578140>Katimma kms if there is anything with garen showing up
>mfw all the fanfics Arcane will spawn
>>3578111I'd definitely love a Taragon series after the short story canonized Leona/Diana.>>3578140>NoxusThey got a few references as trading with Piltover, and while it has some interesting champs, honestly, find them more interesting as a foil rather than focus. Would rather they be there as a complimenting conflict while actually focusing on Demacia or Ionia.
>>3578140An Ionia one would probably be best. A natural landscape that has a connection to magic. Seeing fight scenes with Irelia and Akali standing against Noxus would be cool.
>>3578986I'm really digging Caitlyn being s bit buff too.Also I can't find the tweets but apparently one of the writers mentioned that she had to fight to keep the cupcake line in so my expectations are going to be tempered going forward.
>>3579413"Tempered expectations" seems to be the least of it. Thread on Twitter was full of people shouting "Queerbait!" and now expecting absolutely nothing.
>>3579472I have high hopes. The amount of flirting in act 2 was already 100x more than I expcted
>>3579413We probably won't get much better than the whorehouse segment, I know its a little early in the timeline to make them canon, the scene was mostly there to show that Vi is interested in Caitlyn and that Caitlyn is interested in women, but its probably fair to not expect more than this since they considered even removing the scene, Riot will probably make them canon but I don't think they are in a hurry to do it.
>>3579413Obviously there will be nothing more in those 3 ep remaning, maybe a final cupcake but thats it, people are expecting way too much
>>3579413>but apparently one of the writers mentioned that she had to fight to keep the cupcake line inSounds kinda dumb considering that line is straight from the game
>>3579511Does she ever say "You're hot" along with it?
>>3579477I mean, seeing more context to the statements there, that actually reinvigorates my hopes. Like, that writer's saying the only thing she pushed to keep in was Vi explicitly calling Caitlyn "Hot." Meanwhile someone else on the animation/directing side took it upon themselves to take a note about Vi raising an eyebrow and instead had her go through this whole gambit of expressions that wordlessly said "She's into girls? Oh shit, maybe I should shoot a shot..."
>>3579542It is basically ''They are into each other but they (I suppose Riot higher ups) wanted it more subtexty which I objected to''
>>3578140Any chance they make Riven gay so we have a token lesbian in Noxus?
>>3579573Unlikely, given how much people seem to pair her with Yasuo. If I had to put money on any Noxus champ that isn't "DefinitelynotLeona" Rell it'd be Leblanc.
>>3579477I see that's actually kinda nice to hear. Still im going to only upgrade from "tempered" to "cautiously optimistic".
>>3579634Can I throw a vote in for Samira?
>>3579573>>3579634How about Cass?>>3580029Samira'd be good to appeal to the same "Hurt me buff lady" crowd as Vi at least.
>>3580473>>3580029I've seen some Samira x Miss Fortune art and it's a pretty fun (hot) pair
How far do you think they went?
>>3579573I prefer the Akali x Irelia interactions you see in the game.
>>3580502Yeah, she's got lines in the game for MF but they're connected to wanting to kill her to get her guns.
Aside the peculiar ability of turning human beings into living toxic waste, I know jack shit about LoL but I'm liking Arcane a lot; is there any video that explains the lore and the champions, especially the /u/ related ones, that would make me appreciate the series more?
>>3580780>IreliaAlready has a wife
>>3581121Just play the card game dude
>>3581163I don't like CCGs sis
Caitlyn is interested in lesbian brothels
>>3581121Honestly, it's pretty unnecessary. For years LoL's early lore was just a hodge-podge of random crap mostly conveyed through the format of an in-universe gossip rag. It's only recently that they've made any real attempts at world building after several retcons of varying degrees across the board.In short, Arcane /is/ the lore.Only other thing out there presently that's particularly /u/ relevant is this >>3477100
Vi and Caitlyn are super cute in Arcane and they will only get cuter in season 2.
>>3581621Well, Cait's mom is possible killed(?) by Vi's sister so I wonder how that will affect their relationship. Also, jayce is there so maybe se could survive.
>>3471681OK so its obvious as fuck to everyone here that Jinx is Yandere as fuck for Vi right? There's no projecting and Jinx 100% wants to fuck Vi right?
>>3581621I'm so pissed they ended on a cliffhanger>>3581639She's not the only one. Why is Vi such a fucking siscon? Jesus Christ, even when she's literally in bed with Caitlyn she's still talking about her sister.
>>3581649>I'm so pissed they ended on a cliffhangerMy hopes that each season would be about different characters and regions are entirely dashed.
I am quite satisfied with this third act, the moments with Vi and Cait were really cute and cannot be described in any other way than clearly romantic.Here's hoping that season two doesn't take too long to come out. >>3581609Thank you for an actual answer sis.
>>3581621In season 2 Arcane becomes a Poro centric SoL animu
This is the greatest piece of western animation in 13 years. I can't believe it's /u/
>Straight people trying to push the idea that Vi mockingly calls Jayce a "Pretty Boy" is either>A) An equal expression of romantic interest to her openly checking Caitlyn out, calling her hot, and leaning on her for both physical and emotional support>B) Evidence that all this was also done in jestIn short, I hate straight people.
I know they didn't kiss but that was really gay
>>3582021I'm glad they didn't. They've known each other for a couple of days, max. The whole face-touching thing in Act II was after they've known each other for a DAY.
I wasn’t expecting a kiss or a sex scene, but surprisingly there were a lot of Vi and Caitlyn moments than I imagine. I hope there’s a season 2, but most likely it will focus on other champions.
>>3582029Given the note they left off on, I can't see them not continuing this story. Especially with the reception on top of it; universal praise and everyone clamouring for more.
>>3582029Yes, I'm certain they're just going to leave on Jinx bombing the council and never go back to Piltover. Going to ignore Singed and the Warwick tease, Viktor becoming GLORIOUS EVOLUTION robot man, Heimerdinger and Ekko being buddies, and everything else they didn't tie up at all.
>>3581821I've seen a lot of angry folks saying that it was all queerbaiting because they weren't shown fucking on screen.Like, we saw them laying together, face touching, and other characters calling them girlfriends, but that doesn't count for some people.
>>3582052They've known each other for all of three days and in that time they've already had gay shower thoughts for Caitlyn and Vi's yandere siscon demand she kill Caitlyn because she was taking Vi away from her.I was watching act three with some friends and they were all calling out how gay they were together, just ignore alphabet people screeching on social media and hope rito don't take an eternity to make more Arcane
>>3581950Literally nobody but trolls think that shit, like the whole Vi and Caitlyn has not been show in any type of coy way, they are doing the usual tropes with them literally every time they interact and not only they have show Jayce having the hots another woman, that is not Caitlyn or Vi, but the moment he even tried to be 'nice' in a way that could be misconstructed as romantic to Caitlyn the show takes great pleasure on showing that Caitlyn doesn't even thinks about Jayce that way.I mean, its either trolling or people become legit subnormal after quarantine.
>>3582052>queerbaitI watch like a ton of shows and i'm into fanhubs where the most retarded people congregate and the term 'queerbait' has lost any meaning it had, kinda like it happened with 'forced'.The only modern show i have watched that actually has queerbaited its audience for years was Legacies in the CW.
>>3582082I know the meme its old but...theres no heterosexual explanation for that or for any of their interactions on the show.
>>3582100Or just retarded people.
>>3582082The fact that the animation showed so many greatface expressions was amazing.. Vi's face changed to a surprised expression just tells it all. In the end I have say Cait was even gayer than Vi.
Does Jinx have her pink eyes yet
Did Jinx kidnap Caitlyn while she was naked after showering? That must mean Jinx took the time to dress up Caitlyn before presenting her to the family table. Jinx sure has standards.
>>3582135Nice. It was so weird seeing her without them
>>3582082The screen flashing to the scene of Caitlyn lying across from Vi when she thought Jinx hurt her was a great touch
>>3582136She's savvy enough to recognize the connotations the covered platter would have along with her villainous taunting, I'm sure she could similarly recognize the implications her dragging a naked Caitlyn to the table would've had, and would rather avoid them.
give me Arcane fanfics
Welp, China won
>>3481858Why does Akali only have 3 fingers?
>>3582177Sis, the game takes place like years after this and they're implied to be an item there. Give it time. It's like >>3582049 said.
>>3582177I love how China lives rent free on your head, its easy to tell you were a redditor a couple of weeks ago.
Have you people already seen the newest STRAIGHT AF westernanimay from STRAIGHTFLIX?Its very straight...
I wonder why the "you're hot" line had to be fought for, when all of Act 3 has them behaving like they are falling in love and realizing it.>all the soft, intimate touches and looks and vulnerability and opening up to each other>the whole "uptight parent catches daughter trying to sneak her hot new lay into her bedroom" gag>this shit >>3582193>THIS shit >>3582141>"but.. what about *us*?">"just forget about me..">Jinx calling it like everyone sees it>Vi actually having free lodging, room service & unlimited access to the bar fridge in the swanky penthouse of Caitlyn's headThis was honestly some of the gayest shit I have ever seen.
They just announced that S2 is in production.
>>3582198Vi, Cait, and Jinx better return.
>>3582207They actually tweeted a few seconds of S2 audio featuring those very ladies.This ride is officially far from over.
>tfw no Neeko in S2...>tfw no cool Yordles in S2...>tfw no Lux/Jinx shipping in S2...>tfw minimum 2 years of wait for S2...
>>3582212I saw the teaser, fuck yeah.
>>3582197IIRC the "you're hot" line had to be fought for, not in a "We can't show a lesbian relationship" way as much as a "Would Vi be the type of person to be this blatant/forward".That's how one of the writers presented it at least, and looking at what was in Act 3 I'm inclined to believe that Cait/Vi being in a relationship wasn't something that was argued about, just how it was expressed. Which is astonishing to see.
>1 - 20 of 302 Works in Arcane: League of Legends (Cartoon 2021)
So, Jinx is adopted?
>>3582052Fucking plebs all of them, don't they understand the beauty of slowburn (and this isn't even that slow). Having characters fuck instantly isn't nearly as rewarding.
>>3582138And after that ending so do I.I never thought I’d cry for a certain someone but god damn.That ending. I came cause I heard it was good knowing nothing of LoL I stayed for Vi, Caitlyn, Jinx and yes Silco.
>>3582256>it's now at 339Godspeed. Can't wait to see how many new fics there are when I wake up in the morning.
Season 2 confirmed, teaser has Caitlyn and Vi talking about going after Jinx, both sounding pretty sad about the whole thing
The scene where Vi remembering Cait's face when Jinx lifted the "cover" had me gushing but....yea, fuck, I told you fucks we weren't getting a kiss>I-It's too earlyKeep fucking coping and be satisfied with being second class citizens, Jayce and Mel got to bang in a totally unnecessary scene that could have been skipped after the initiation but they went for it anyway but we cant get a kiss?
>>3582348Nigga, Vi isn't even an Enforcer yet and Caitlyn sure isn't Sheriff. Give it some fucking time.
>>3582348I can't believe the absolute uncultured swinery of posts like yoursGetting to witness them unambiguously falling in love >>>>>> sudden empty sex hilariously juxtaposed against a dying nerd
>>3582348Caitlyn had a angsty pining shower scene I’ve seen entire lasting fandoms spawned from far far less.You don’t need full on fucking hell id argue that one scene had more passion than all of Jayce and Mel’s.Also I’m a sucker for Caitalyn I love toned women so I love Vi but Caitlyn with such a femme face contrasted with such a toned body unf.
>>3582355>>3582352>>3582358>W-we need to wait>W-w-we need to have it done c-correctlyMeanwhile 99.9% of action adventure stories have the hero getting the girl after just barely meeting her. Not everything in life, especially while you're on a fucking magical journey, is laid out carefully brick by brick. I hate this weird need to always have to build a mountain of justifications before a female character is allowed to have something nice or else she'll get criticized in every which way possible from being called a Mary Sue to having her little victories labeled "forced", meanwhile male protagonists can just grab the plot by the balls and wrangle out every juicy reward however and whenever they want.
>>3582364>Meanwhile 99.9% of action adventure stories have the hero getting the girl after just barely meeting her.Those are also shit. I like lesbians too, but I HATE relationships that are written like shit, so as you can image I have seriously slim pickings. So fuck you, cunt. I rather have a well written relationship over just another case of "muh representation".
>>3582364Yep agree, i mean look at Jayce and Mel. Like always double standard.
>>3582368>"muh representation".Based on what I'm seeing, people are feeling pretty damn represented by Vi/Caitlyn's pining and emotional bond. It's only retards and trolls claiming it doesn't count if they aren't making out 24/7.
>>3582368This was not about representation, you dolt. It's about double standard.
>>3582370>Implying that Mel is even going to surviveYou do know that Jayce in the game is kind of a cunt, right? Guess what'll lead into that.
>>3582374Are you dense ? Didn't you see the implication of her survival with her gold armor shit on her back ? She's clearly gonna live, with Jayce and Vik.
>>3582376She can still get offed in season 2 even if she survives the rocket. Her Noxian heritage will come to bite her in the ass for sure
>>3582218>"WHO'S FUCKING MY DAUGHTER"
>>3582348>>3582364Lol...imagine being this retarded...bitch Mel literally doesn't exists in the lore prior to the animu, her romance with Jayne literally serves a narrative purpose and little more.
>>3582372>>3582371>>3582370>>3582368>>3582364>>3582358>>3582355>>3582352>>3582348>>3582322Ladies, Ladies, please. You both have good points. On one hand, for most of recorded history, "slow burn" always amounted to nothing when it came to best love, and yuri ships were pure copium. On the other hand, we live in a new era now, the era of actually good lesbian writing. Don't you see? There's going to be a next season set in Piltover/Zaun! Cait/Vi is going to be front and center. We're getting the first class treatment now!
>>3582377>>3582376My theory is she basically body blocks for Jayce/Vik and dies in the blast, which will start her mother having a vendetta against Piltover/Noxus
>>3582380And yet they shoved an elongated sex scene between them down the audience's throat while /u/ sits here begging for a romantic moment that never came for Vi/Cait. Who's the winner here, when it's all said and done? This nonsense that we always have to "earn" it first is tiresome.
>>3582381Yep Yep ! So less hetero talk more yuri posting pls
>Caitlyn's memory in the shower was reversed because it meant Vi coming back to her
>>3582384You do realize that Mel and Jayce have a different relationship than Cait and Vi right? Cait and Vi are developing an actual relationship where they both care about each other. Meanwhile Mel is using Jayce, she states it clearly at the gala thing, why do you think she trows herself at him after he got a place in the council? Also the sex scene was well done, loved the juxtaposition of the images, and it serves a purpose. Jayce chose Mel over Vick.
>>3582399You haven't been paying attention if you think Mel is still in total control of her feelings. And I never said the sex scene needed to be cut entirely, but the initiation should have been enough then cutting to Vik's lab, instead of the constant flashing back and forth between them rolling around and Viktor vomiting blood
>>3582391They are very cute.
>>3582456>>3582458You know, looking at these makes me realize thar Vi's gonna dye her hair later on.
>>3573286It's all I see.
All else aside, god shit show looks pretty.
>>3582384Because it doesn't matters for them, because they only fucked/had a romance for the show to later kill Mel to give Jayce gravitas, its this the first time you watch a show?Personally i think you are a troll, and it makes me happy this show made you so mad you came here to show your ass, i can't imagine how mad your home board must be this went down the way it went.
>>3582597We should also not forget that by the time LoL rolls around, Noxus is gearing for a war with Piltover, so Mel might just be a victim for some good old fashioned political assassination.
>>3582391>let me see you back that ass up
Ima just say something happened between Vi and Cait on the night before the council meeting.
>>3573286Poor Powder getting ntr'd>>3582717Yes, sleeping
>>3582834I'm sure the "Third Wheel Jinx" jokes are gonna get old at some point. But it sure hasn't happened for me yet.
>>3582597Whether Mel dies to push Jayce's character forward or if she somehow survives to end up as a support champion in the game, as some wild speculations have been going around, is utterly irrelevant.The point is that nobody bats an eye over how blatant the relationship between Jayce and Mel is (or the fact that Mel's mom came to Piltover to kick ass and fuck gigolos). In fact we have trolls like you who happily come up with justifications for why it "makes sense" for the show to dedicate time to show that the hetero couples are fucking with zero ambiguity. But when it comes to the lesbians, we suddenly have to build it up over the course of 9000 episodes or else we risk getting called "pandering" or some other nonsense. You crossboarders are always the first to accuse someone else being an outsider yet your own posts are always so blatantly anti-/u/, it's comical. >>3582717When Cait went back to her room after her dad took out the shrapnel in her leg, she said they were presenting to the council "tonight", so they didnt even get to spend a night in her house, just the afternoon together.
>>3582864You are so fucking transparent with this shitty concern troling...
>>3582384>begging for a romantic moment that never came for Vi/Cai>never cameWhat? Are you fucking autistic? Is your idea of romance shoving your fingers up someone's pussy the moment you see them?>>3582864>we suddenly have to build it up over the course of 9000 episodesWe've had 9 episodes and it's pretty fucking clear they're interested in each other. Stop obsessing over a het sex scene.
>>3582834shit I was literally working on that joke
>>3582873The point isn't will Cait/Vi get a payoff to their romantic subplot, I believe that they will. The point also isn't whether Cait/Vi is done well or not, because I think it is done well so far. The point of contention is that it annoys me that certain types of relationships, you know, the ones we care about here on /u/ in case you forgot where you are, are almost always forced into this slow progress route to earn approval from the masses while other relationships can be approached in different ways without anyone batting an eye.
>>3582859Yeah they're pretty entertaining so far>>3582877Good one anon
Please stop feeding the blatant and retarded troll.Anyway, the same writer who talked about keeping in the blunt "You're hot, cupcake" line pretty well confirmed they are gonna kiss in S2.
Caitlyn's gonna be digging an alcoholic Vi out of a gutter after that ending in season 2
>>3582918So more angst ? yes please.
>>3582904sauce pls nee-chan
>>3582935Lower lows make the highs so much higher
>>3582970>>3582904It wasn't a vague answer, but I understand what you meant.
>>3582970i'm dumb what does that supposed to mean, wait and see for s2 ?
>>3582975Means that they knew there was a season two when they were writing the first one and that they had Cait and Vi acting like love smitten lesbos that have angsty shower fantasies about each other on purpose
I enjoy this meme
>>3582881And on the flipside, if Vi and Cait had been kissing and fucking already people would bitch that it was rushed because they know eachother like a day or two tops.
>>I fuck your sister lol
>>3583124Tbf, Jinx probably killed her mother in return. Even steven.
I’m here for Piltover’s Finest just as much as all of us but who’s Lux? I’ve seen her name pop up a few times as a possible ship for Jinx.
>>3583169I read Lux and Jinx are semi official in an magical girl AU or some shit outside that they dont officially know each other I think
>>3583169Lux is Garen's sister from Demacia, they're paired because she's a goody two shoes light mage and Jinx is Jinx, and they were together in the star guardian skin set where they were magical girls
>>3583170>>3583217They're also having their "canon" selves in the trailer for Runeterra I believe.
>>3583096They went through more in three days together than most people go through in their entire lives. That is not to even mention Vi just got out of prison.People would bitch but it would be unjustified.
>>3583323I also bitch about hetero couples getting together too quick and saying "I love you" a week after knowing each other. I apply my standards to all couples.
>>3583217One of Star Guardian Jinx's lines is even that Lux "makes even boring look beautiful".
>>3583217>>3583360Star Guardians is pretty on point with their Magical Girl history, they know they need to make at least half the cast, and in Light and Shadows they basically put Neeko in there asap for even more gayness.
Watched this having no clue that there was so many /u/ underpinnings in LoL and now I'm hooked. Excellent fucking show and so damn satisfying getting blindsided with Vi and Cait flirting so much. I saved all the cait/vi fanart in the thread and set my desktop background to >>3569094 and now I don't know what else to do to chase this dragon. I kind of want to try out the games now but reading this thread makes me realize it won't live up to the expectations the show has set. Having gay main characters wasn't what I was expecting at all, I can't believe how lucky it was that this managed to get made so well.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aR-KAldshAEDigging through old LoL cinematic videos for any scraps of /u/ after finishing Arcane and spotted some Vi/Cait teamwork in this one. Anyone have any other good official cait/vi videos?
Even though it is $375 I am tempted to buy one. If they made statue like this with Vi and Cait I'd have already bought it.
>>3583612Here's a better picture.
Murata seems to be invested in the franchise and drew a bunch of fanart already
>>3583616Fuuuck I want it.
>>3583637>Sevika brooding alone in the back seatWho are we shipping her with?
>>3583416It's a MOBA game with over a hundred characters, even if it had a dozen lesbians with ingame banters and flirts, it would still be weird to play it just for the /u/ content.
>>3582256>>3582342i hadn't even thought to check under a new category for arcane fics since i usually go to the main league category. there's 470 of them now.it feels like i was first looking for vi/cait fics almost 10 years ago. never thought we'd end up with an extremely gay, beautifully made tv show. it's nice.
So is Arcane a different universe or something? I know it's a prequel but still, seeing Jinx/Vi/Caitlyn's interactions in-game and in Legends of Runeterra, it feels like it is because of how different the tone is.
>>3583700Tone due to marketing may certainly be a factor. Like, even given the space of years, I cannot picture the Jinx and Vi of Arcane reconciling like they do at the end of Jinx's story route in Legends of Runeterra. To say nothing of how Jinx's psychosis is generally played as a cutesy quirk vs. Arcane's genuinely disturbed young woman.I suppose we'll just have to wait and see if they bother to reconcile the different portrayals, or stick with one or the other going forward, or just keep creating distinctly different versions based on the market base of a given product.
>>3583616I want some of this merch too especially the Caitlyn statue but I don’t wanna spend hundreds of dollars at the moment so I went with the $40 pack of mini figures.Has Caitlyn Vi Jinx Ekko and the fuzzy dude who’s name I will never be able to spell off the top of my head.It’s obviously no where near as high quality but as the statues but you get best girls.
>>3583700It's like a decade or more from the end of arcane to when league is supposed to be set, they can kiss and make up by then
>>3583900I saw that mini figure pack but I didn't think the price is right for the quality, especially since I don't care about displaying 3 out of the 5 in the pack. The individual Vi/Cait LoL statues are nice but I can't get over how off Cait's face looks since it uses her in-game skin, plus vi is out of stock already so its a risk that it stays out of stock and then I couldn't pair them together. Since they pre-produced a ton of merch specifically for arcane's release I bet that they will design more for the interim/s2 considering how much attention the show is getting. Also it's probably only a matter of time before shippers on etsy start selling unofficial vi/cait pins and shit like that.
>>3583616>>3583612I did buy it and I've never really bought a figure before so I kind of misjudged just how big it is. I'm not an expert but it definitely seems well made
>>3584094Thats cool dude, and it does looks good.
>>3583700It's not a secret that Riot hates how the lore was made in the original game. They've tried to retcon away large portions of it, but the funny thing is that it has resulted in the main game essentially being like Smash Brothers, in that the characters who appear are just snapshots at different times.They are developing a mmo, so they appear to be using stuff like Arcane and Legends of Runeterra to create a base that people like and then go from there.
>>3583641I know, I know, cupcakes and all, but the foe-yay with Vi is simply too strong. Jinx would probably just kill her.
>>3582885>>3584245>>3584246Sauce on these? I can't find shit.
>>3584316>shoes on the bed
Vi x Cait is so fucking good.
>>3582029We will get a kiss next season.
>>3584731yeah but what about our girl Jinx
>>3584881Jinx can selfcest with the powder half of her brain.
>>3584891Well, these stock photos end with the two girls getting married so let's go Caitlin x Jinx I guess?https://www.boredpanda.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/index-5e4d5c1e02689__605.jpg
>>3584948that is pretty fucking funny. I never knew the rest of those existed. Thank you anon.
>>3584891Poor Jinx forever the third wheel
>>3584961That's official? Which game is it?
>>3584966It's from a PUBG Crossover Ad, apparently.
>>3584965Those are just great
>>3584970Better take what we can get.
>>3584964>>3584965Third wheel Jinx is one of the best parts of this new wave of fan art
>>3585017Truly the best villain origin storyhttps://youtu.be/xWVgO7DUD08
>>3585017the funny thing is that its canon
>>3585494There's one of these floating around where the roles are reversed and it's Caitlyn hugging a Seraphine body pillow
>>3586322It’s a thing with usually Chinese/Korean media that gets translated to English by someone who probably doesn’t speak English as a first language. I see it all the time and at this point I just read around it. Not sure what the reason is.
The pair is cute, but the romance honestly seemed rushed. Maybe it's because I binged all 9 episodes in 3 days.
>>3586322Caitlyn is channeling her inner Canadian
>>3586746>hetero couple has sex 5 episodes in>gay couple hasn't even confessed or kissed is "rushed"what fucking brain damage do you got going on sis
>>3586777To be fair, Jayce and Mel were probably developing much of their romance during the timeskip (lasting a couple of years), it just wasn't shown on screen. Vi x Cait sort of blossomed in the equivalent of just a few days.
>>3586777different anon here, why even bring up the het pairing? this is yuri board, not het complaint board. whether or not cait/vi is rushed has nothing to do with some other couple in the show.I will say I don't feel it's rushed, just because things like love at first sight and mutual hardship bringing people together are tropes as old as time. also, getting a crush on a hot person you just met is really not that weird. is it happening quickly? sure, but "rushed"? I don't think so.don't forget these girls are barely in their twenties. young love is often fast and fiery.
>>3586812also, I think Vi was pretty blindsided by Cait's unbridled empathy & compassion which she has probably never seen from a topsider before. the little moments where she appears to be falling (more) in love with Cait are when Cait is pouring her own heart out.
>>3586746Fuck off retard
