There are still some little goodies on the way, so stay tuned...
So the word from Riot is that there is a chance Riven didn't do it.

Whenever I say it based on the facts people think I'm some weird Riven defender or something when all I was doing was trying to find some interesting lore. x_x

I don't think you're weird, I actually like the argument that comes with a disparity in our choices.

That's the beautiful thing about the circumstances Yasuo and Riven find them in. The relationship could go any number of directions. It could be a pure rivalry, or it could be a rivalry that turns into a romance, or it could go somewhere else entirely. But to call it a pure rivalry or a pure romance is missing the point. The point is, the relationship is COMPLICATED and provides plenty of fodder for drama. As a fan of our universe, this ambiguity appeals to me. It's a grown-up vision of human relationships and not a Disney one.

Aw, thanks. I've been meaning to post more often, but getting Yasuo out the door has been extremely time-consuming!

Question is: will you change your Avatar to High Noon Yasuo once the splash is made?

Well, I would imagine there are several Rioters who are jonesing to make Yasuo their forum avatar. I don't think I can win that competition.

I dislike it when creators ship members of their cast together just to ship things or add romance. It makes for unnatural feeling relations and poorly crafted stories. Of course you guys don't need to worry about that because you guys never finish stories anyway.

P.S. RivenXYasuo = closet psychopath couple. Riven kills on command until her own life at risk = secretly no humanity. Yasuo kills his own brother for "honor" even though he could have tried to talk it out before hand= Murderous and emotionally selfish.

Please no. That sounds like the absolute worst pairing ever. Aesthetically, personally, everything about it just screams OFF.

itt : writing less than 500 words and coming up with a bad back story that will lead absolutely no where as all LoL lore does is extremely time consuming.

Yeah, ok...

What do you do, pitch 3000 ideas and then use a lotto to decide which one you'll take? Sure, that might be time consuming...

Meanwhile, every good professional author pumping out a 1000 pages book on their own every 2-3 years.

But, hey, at least we get to pair Riven with a samurai for... what reason again? None? Oh, ok. Yeah makes sense, she totally seems ready to have a relationship with someone. Except for the can barely live with herself/hates everything that her country has become thing. Yeah, let's forget about that. Too distracting from the important stuff : SHIPPING. Cuz every champ should be paired with another champ, right Ransom?
