Excellent way to put it alsoBut this, this "I'm gonna barge into that room and tell them that they're all emotionally crippled idiots! This is gonna be good!", this disqualifies you from further conversation. This will not entice anyone to waste any time to try and explain things in kind words to you. So yeah, read up and don't expect any motherly warmth from the audience of this thread.
I atleast like to think that on YENNEFERS fan thread we can atleast defend her thoroughly here, although i seen the other thread from last year got closed because of posts that went overboard. Even in the patch 1.10, there is still more Yen content/screentime compared to Triss, which is good for me . We get all of Skellige to ourselves with Yen whereas in Novigrad you are with Triss for half of it, if that. We also get all of Kaer Morhen and the Last Wish is a proper quest dedicated solely to Yen/Geralt whereas Triss' side quests are so that she can free the mages. 2nd time around in Novigrad is pretty equal, Yen/Triss get a quest each, then you have the small Yen/Geralt talking about their daughter and then the small family confrontation whereas with Triss you get the fountain, however that was all in that one quest, Yen appears in two so maybe she wins here aswell. Skellige has more Yen once again, the family quest in Avallac'h's lab whereas for Triss it is just her standing around. Then you have her wish for the future and Triss has her i can't wait for Kovir moment. Then during the final battle you have Yen saving Geralt from the naglfar and then the talk about how they need to stop Avallac'h and rescue their daughter again (tho they only say Ciri -_-) then at the end you have Yen telling Geralt to bring Ciri to her and Geralt promises he will. Then they part ways after this, i assume so that Yen can disentangle from the web of politics and Geralt needs to train Ciri to become a witcheress, then he finds himself in Toussaint, completes his duties there, returns to his new home and bam Yen is waiting for him, just like she said she wanted before the hunt, a home with him. My point here is this anyway, Atleast Yen gets more screentime over Triss lol. Although she should get more screentime anyway, she wasn't in Witcher 1/2 and it's Geralts true love so??... Although tbh the Patch only adds 1 extra scene with Triss and Yen already had an equivalent, the nilfgaard tent at the end. Everything else they added for Triss they added for Yen aswell, such as Kaer Morhen talk, and discussing your relationship with yen to... Yen, Ciri and Triss, I suppose Triss fans are pretty angry that Ciri said "Im glad you and yennefer ended up back together" but can you blame her for saying that? Mum and dad? back together? why wouldn't she want itWell, that is a load of crap which can be falsified easily enough by evidence from books and games. That has been done thousands of times already earlier in this thread and elsewhere. Also, it's easy to point out examples of selfishness, spitefulness and power-mongering on the side of the NPC you apparently prefer. That also has been done thousands of times already.
Suppose everyone doesn't HAVE to like her tho i can't understand why lol, her early character in the earlier books, sure you can dislike that a little, but as she is changing drastically during the books and becoming motherly, caring, loving, protective, stuff she didn't even know she was capable of in the 1st book and apart from caring, in the 2nd book. But people have different opinions, i just hate... HATE different opinions based of lies and bullshit. If people know what Triss did to Geralt,Ciri and Yen and know the character that Yen becomes throughout the books and STILL prefers Triss... then they are a lost cause, but there is hardly anyone like this rofl.That's alright, it is okay to have a different opinion, and you're entitled to have your own preferences.
