No. The WDS has been hacked quite a bit.

I don't remember Wily hacking ADA.
I meant the WDS network.

It's been hacked twice now.

I'm watching you all. Always watching.

Anywho, love.

Back in the day, I've seen character profiles that include NPC love interests, usually created by the player for the purpose of their character having a significant other.  In terms of generic dark histories, that love interest may be abusive and may vanish from time to time, only to reappear and abuse the character, who would be strangely nonchalant about it.  That character could be kidnapped, raped, and tortured, but they'll only focus on how mind-blowingly awesome the sex was.

Those types of love interests sometimes coincided with players who had god-mode characters.  The love interest wouldn't necessarily be connected to their god-moder (who was usually either a villain or a main hero), but to a secondary character, the dark-and-broody mysterious trope of the group.

I've also see characters created for the sole purpose of being a love interest of another player's character.  They generally come off as clingy.

I pretty much subtext the hell out of it, bringing up key points of past throughout the rp. If it's a new kinda thingy, then I usually just bring in how the character would react in situations based on their...well....character.

I'm pretty much the same way. With Peebs, she is not really the romantic type, so to speak. Her attraction to Fxeni is, as of right now, more sexual than emotional. With PB & Zeta, it's a more interesting relationship because anything can happen with it. Emotions change during the course of a story line and they're definitely going to change for PB cause of what is coming up for him next.

I probably won't be giving Archetype a love interest, but I suppose anything could happen. At this point in time, Luna was/is the only one he loves.

I briefly thought of building a romantic relationship between him and Phi, but that would be a trainwreck. That's not to say Phi won't have someone; it just won't be Arche. I want their relationship to be more of a "brother and sister" type of thing.

The only artificial relationship I have built has been something that was established in-universe (CoreyxAlice), and that's subtly built off of a present relationship. Other than that I don't see giving Sinos a love interest (or finding one for that matter) as very important. If it happens, whatever.

My other plan, though, is to maybe admire someone childishly, to create comedic misunderstandings for other characters.

Female. The comedy is supposed to stem from Sinos's obliviousness to the social expectancy that boys and girls can either be friendzoning each other, hating each other, or dating.

For example, let's make a theoretical situation with Peebs. Somehow (though realistically unlikely for that character) Sinos grows a childlike fascination and admiration for Peebs. While it's not really love-based or even lust-based, to others, it appears like he likes her. Then Sinos has no idea why he pisses off Fxeni and embarrasses Peebs. Hilarity ensues.

Lets see:

Peebs
Akai
Keco
Zeta
Sakura
Taylor
Evil Quickie
Phi
Vixy
I think one of Ninja Lou's characters is a girl

There's a few more probably but that's all I've got. Still, not that many.

The thing is the only ones viable would be Peebs, Vixy, Sakura, Akai, Phi and Ephy.  And going even further only Sakura and Ephy would be viable unless you want to set up Akai X Josei again.

Oh yeah, I forgot about Ephy.

But yeah, I don't think I'll do Akai X Josei again.

There also Kathy but she's not viable either since no one is going after her.  And even then I don't think Asch would mind Sinos admiring Sakura since he understands he was born yesterday and I kinda wanted to set up a sibling dynamic with the two of them. 

Pyro is the only one who annoys the [parasitic bomb] out of him since he's the embodiment of chaos.

You want them to have a sibling dynamic... yet you ship them together?

At least they're not actually siblings.  XD

And it was easy to misinterpret since I suck at getting points across. :P

Also I didn't want Asch and Sakura to be together at this point of the story, I only did it because of that Unity thing kind of pushed it.  The thing about Asch is while he cares about Sakura he ultimately wants Sakura to be happy above all else and Sakura has never been in love before.  Sakura has to fall in love with him which she hasn't yet, she sees him as a really caring friend right now.  

Right now they're just trying it to see how it works and if it would work.

Well, I've yet to RP here (and the way I procrastinate, I probably never will), but typically my policy on romantic relationships in RPs is to keep it professional. Don't get too invested in it. If I'm in a RP relationship with another player character, I don't go too far with it. Most of the time though, I keep relationships restricted to NPCs or my own secondary characters.

Well the way we've done it, we've never had any love interests between two characters that are played by different people.
