Hello lads, welcome to not-Elice Carol's first daily reminder that the pairing of Noel x Serah is a horrible pairing and all those who support it are going to be responsible for humanity's downfall in the next 130 days. Those who join the meeting for the sake of stopping this menace will find tea, coffee and an assorted arrangement of cheese and crackers on the table. Those who feel as if Noerah is a genuinely possible pairing will find a swift rebuking in the next five seconds.
As some of you may already know, Noel x Serah had become quite popular prior to my joining of the Final Fantasy XIII-2 board last year. They believed that Serah, the colourless, boring Mary Sue heroine, deserved a man better than the man who saved millions of lives searching for an attempt to bring her back. This man, Noel Kreiss, is actually a pretty cool guy, eh makes corny 80s lines and doesn't afraid of paradoxes, but he's already got a lovely young waifu, Yeul. Likewise, Serah also has the aforementioned husbando-to-be in Snow, so you must wonder, why do people ship this pairing if there's no chance of it happening?
I'll tell you what it is - Physical appearances. Noel's worth a shag, and Serah apparently has the beauty of a model according to NPCs in sunny Academia. They don't have chemistry, they just agree on something, maybe Noel makes a joke at Serah's expense that goes over her head like a Titan's mouth, and they move on to the next nonsensical situation. No character development, no attempts at making a meaningful bond, nothing, It's not overreaching to believe that those who support this pairing are fans of NTR, otherwise known as cuckolding or plain ol' cheating to the Western tongue, so going around and acting like it's meant to be isn't something to be championed.
What are your thoughts, fellow board members? I see Odin in the back there, itching to make a passionate confession. Jfielding is (as usual) sneering, but he's a prissypants anyways.
