Sora x Texas is always so sweet~

This looks like a surprise kiss on Sora's part, but Texas looks like she's already reaching for Sora's butt. Talk about fast reaction times, huh?

Underrated pairing

Just a goddess with her guardian Aug 4, 2020 6:21AM

This pairing was overshadowed by Lappy and Exu.

Honestly, Sora is Texas' second best pairing.

Texas looks like she's already reaching for Sora's butt.

Nah, she just doesn't know how to hug people :/.

Tbh... in my opinion this is better than Lapp x Texas

^requires less selective ignoring of the lore at least

Just as I prefer Exia and Mostima over Exia with Texas, I prefer this pair over Texas and Lappy.

I like Lappy as a character, but she is far from a safe person to ve around, let alone have a relationship with... back to the pictures.

This is cute, I like Traxas' surprised expression despite being keept expressionless. As well that Sora went with her real form (Cautus) as if insinuating she is being honest with her actions.

Overall, nice!

^y'know I still haven't the foggiest how Sora fakes her ears and tail given the very substantial physical differences in those between Lupos and Cautus... ¯\(°_o)/¯

then again Emps is literally immortal so that's minor as far as Penguins weirdness goes

Sora has illusion powers, according to her promotion record. Also TBH I’m not sure her true form is Cautus either.
Executor mentions he has a distant relative that has illusions and a “great musical talent”; assuming he’s referring to Sora then she’s probably Sankta.

Makes as much sense as anything 'round the place. Terra isn't quite Glorantha levels of what-the-actual-fuck but it's definitely a pretty weird setting.

You cant hear image they say Aug 4, 2020 10:56PM

I wonder why the artist didn't draw Texas in her usual outfit..

塞雷娅 Aug 6, 2020 3:51PM

@random There's actually no need ignore any of the lore to ship them tho? The lore actually supports them having some kind of relationship before Texas ran from her past and that they were close enough for Lappland to develop a fixation on her aided by her oripathy infection. The Code of Brawl event also shows Texas has some connection to the mafia which is another connection with Lappland.

Also before you say that the files say she's not running from her past, her voice line after getting her trust says otherwise. " No matter how hard I run, my past will catch me one day." Her treatment of Lappland who is apart of her past is completely in line with that then, and also shows that what Lappland is talking about in HER voice lines isn't her being delusional.

People ship it cause they seem like exes and think their relationship is interesting to explore so let's not say that you have to ignore lore to ship it when that's not the case at all. Sora x Texas is definitely a SWEETER ship but Texland isn't any less lore appropriate.

^the lore's pretty clear Tex wants exactly fuck-all to do with that pale lunatic and thinks she's bigtime Bad News. Lapp's brief (homicidal) cameo in CoB certainly makes it easy to see why...

Prior connection does not automagically equate to both parties desiring to reconnect, and so far everything in canon indicates such desire is entirely on Lapp's side.

塞雷娅 Aug 6, 2020 4:15PM

^ And when did I say I thought Texas wanted to reconnect or anything like that? People ship it cause it's an interesting relationship dynamic and think that whatever past they have is also interesting to explore considering we don't know how Lappland was BEFORE getting infected and we know her mental facilities were affected by said infection. There's plenty of fanart of people trying to imagine what their relationship was like before and there's plenty of fanart that depicts their current relationship as very strained so idk why you think any of this shipping is non-lore friendly.

random Aug 6, 2020 4:29PM

I don't think we have been looking at the same fanarts. Certainly not here.

塞雷娅 Aug 6, 2020 4:50PM

^ Well I requested most of the recent Arknights fanart (including this one) and I just requested some Texland ones so you'll see
