Myrth - The elder druid's unending apologies during battle got annoying very quickly. She came across as a fragile hothouse flower who quickly wilts when exposed to the real world. I really wanted to like her, and at times I did, for a little while. Then she'd start whining or fainting again and I'd start wondering why we brought her along again. Her bleeding heart naivete,
Chambara - This bad girl on the outside, gooey good girl on the inside was rather intriguing. The B-G version of the ending however was rather frustrating. Wasting decades chasing endlessly after a game-playing witch who can't make up her mind is not my idea of a happy ending. Speaking for myself only, I'd have eventually gotten tired of her unwillingness to commit and parted ways. Thanks for the magic lessons though!
Loren - As has been commented upon previously, the tall man-hating lesbian amazon who is somewhat tamed over time by the right man is a bit of a cliche. Nevertheless I don't think amazons are as much of a cliche as countless others that run rampant in fantasy literature. It's just that Amazons get extra attention because they flip the gender equity imbalance. Of the boy-girl romances, Loren came across as my favorite. Despite the initial rocky start, the relationship had a definite arc to it as Loren's views evolved and both characters grew closer together. The Loren-Saren ending was also my favorite in the game.
Chambara's commitment issues disappear if your character is female. Instead of continually running away she invites you to live with her. That's a big plus. Nevertheless the G-G Chambara CG scene is also the most eye-popping of them all. I don't personally have an issue with BDSM however, and Chambara didn't seem to abuse her power in what was otherwise a loving relationship so I was fine with it. And no, I don't consider that sort of consentual love-play between two adults in the privacy of the bedroom abusive if it's safe and turns them both on. This ended up being my favorite of the G-G relationships simply because it was so deliciously wicked.
Loren - G-G Loren begins more smoothly than B-G Loren since she doesn't start out contemptuous of women the way she does with men. Otherwise the relationship progresses similarly, except with a little more tenderness and significantly less resistance on the part of Loren. The ending where
Karen was the main reason why I decided to play G-G. I was sad I couldn't romance her as Saren. She was an interesting character with an interesting story, and an interesting ending. I liked her a lot, but she didn't impact me as significantly as Chambara or Loren. Nevertheless, she certainly did a better job of getting over her issues than Myrth did, despite starting out at rock bottom. Like Mesphit, she's something of a reclamation project, but far less hopeless. Her relationship with Elenor was touching.
These I've only played into Chapter 4. I haven't gotten around to the CG scenes or the endings yet, so my opinions on these are preliminary.
Mesphit - The brooding, somewhat broken, angst-filled male is a romance novel staple, and I recognize that that many gals seem to have a strong attraction to this sort. Mesphit's commanding lead in the poll bears that out. As a male myself however, I have no patience for other men like that. Even when he's not murdering innocent Cyclopses, he still comes across as too high maintenance to me. Mesphit, call me once you've gotten your emotions straightened out. Until then I'm not going to trust you and your demonic urges anywhere near my little Elenor.
Rei - I like Rei. Yeah, he's annoyingly arrogant and aloof in the beginning, but it's pretty obvious to me as a fellow male that it's all an act to hide his own angst, which he graciously doesn't try to inflict on Elenor. I'll take his male bravado over Mesphit's issues any day. Once he started treating Elenor better and helping her to learn elven culture, I started warming up to him. So he's my favorite G-B relationship.
Amukiki - The honorable barbarian slave gladiator champion is another cliche. It's far more overused than amazons, but it doesn't up-end the patriarchy so it doesn't get commented on as heavily. I never really could get into this one, or the way Elenor kept inexplicably going all wounded doe so he could appear so manly. She's a gifted magical healer and she couldn't heal her own twisted ankle? Uhuh. I rolled my eyes when he came back, picked her up and started carrying her.
Not my cup of tea. I'll leave commenting on these relationships to those who are interested enough to pursue them.
