The Unofficial Fates Pairing Popularity Polls

Recommended Posts

Be sure to waste your time and read this post before selecting your choices!

Now, humble reader, you are probably wondering who would dare talk about pairing popularity. And your concern would not be unfounded.

While thinking of pairings to use for my fanfics, I found myself at a roadblock. How was I ever to determine which pairings are Debeste... err, the best? Then I discovered the most obvious answer: popular opinion! As demonstrated by the Wonderful 101, any problem can be solved with numbers. With your help, I can solve a problem which you probably don't care about at all! But more importantly, this is also a project to determine what pairings are most popular, especially since we already have a thread for least favorite pairings.

"Golly, Mr. Light, where do I fit into this?" you're probably thinking.

All you have to do, dear reader, is to choose who the most special of someones is for each character! In other words, you must select who the best romantic partner is for each character. But not who the best is for stats; leave your eugenics at home! You also need not judge pairings solely by their supports, general compatibility can also be taken into account, or how much a pairing makes sense based on the plot. For the sake of my cheapness and your inconvenience, the polls come in five fabulous flavors, plus a bonus! Each poll covers eight characters, and they can be found here:

Shared characters (male Corrin, female Corrin, Azura, Felicia, Jakob, Silas, Kaze, Mozu) (results)

Hoshidan Males (Ryoma, Takumi, Saizo, Azama, Hinata, Subaki, Hayato, and Kaden) (results)

Hoshidan Females (Hinoka, Sakura, Kagero, Setsuna, Oboro, Hana, Orochi, and Rinkah) (results)

Nohrian Scum Males (Xander, Leo, Laslow, Odin, Niles, Arthur, Benny, and Keaton) (results)

Nohrian Females (Camilla, Elise, Peri, Selena, Beruka, Effie, Nyx, and Charlotte) (results)

Bonus Ducks (Scarlet, Flora, captured bosses, NPCs) (results)

But don't think that these polls are exclusive to the residents of this humble forest! In the event that the citizens of Begnion accuse us of assassinating their apostle, you should share these polls with your friends, or your enemies, or your friends' enemies! ...You can also share it on other sites, too. Getting through all the questions might take some time, but try to answer all of them. The fate of no one in particular depends on it!

I think that's everything... wait, I forgot to make a Frozen reference! But I guess that can wait for another time. Until then, happy polling! I'll be sure to post the results whenever they become relevant.

EDIT: Now featuring the next generation!

Shared Children (female Kana, male Kana, Shigure, Dwyer, Sophie, Midori)

Hoshidan Children (Shiro, Kiragi, Asugi, Selkie, Hisame, Mitama, Caeldori, Rhajat)

Nohrian Children (Siegbert, Forrest, Ignatius, Velouria, Percy, Ophelia, Soleil, Nina)

Oh good, lack of Ryoumarx or Ryouscarlet means I don't have to make hard decisions for Ryoma

(it's hard having 3 roughly-equal ships that I all love for this one guy ok)

Edit: did the bonus poll and the first question speaks to my soul

(only did Hoshidos and skipped a few, I don't really have many ships I'm passionate about in Nohr that aren't utterly gay and thus not on this poll)

Just puttin' this out there: I ship all the dudes with one chick, with a few deviations here and there.

EDIT: All my choices are not for play. I mean them. Even the ones that seem ridiculous, I mean them.

Alright. I did them all.

Some of them are for the children I did, others are for how well they make a good pair up combo, or both, or otherwise.

I ended up just picking random for certain characters, either because I don't pair them with anyone (Elise, Mozu), dislike them so much that I end up leaving them Forever Alone (Peri, Silas, Jakob, Azama), or don't have a preferred pairing for them (Felicia). Otherwise I just went with my OTPs. I'll probably be the only person voting Leo/Hinoka and Corrin/Tsubaki.

Are there going to be polls for children pairings as well?

Voted! Will be interested to see the results. I had a few duplicates because of liking a couple for one character.

I do wish there'd been a 'forever alone' option (Peri). ;P

I wonder how long it took you to do this.

I already did the shared and Hoshidans, I'll do Nohr later.

Voted~ I'll be very interested in seeing the results! Most characters only got one option (Corrin/Azura, Laslow/Peri, etc) but some I voted for more than one character (I voted Hinoka for both Hinata and Silas, for example), depending on how strong I OTP'd it.

I'll probably be the only person voting Leo/Hinoka

Ooh, can't wait to see these results! Voted mostly my planned final Revelation pairings, unless the pairing was more of a pair-the-spares ordeal or I just did it to satisfy my needs for parallelism. The Bonus Poll though... that last question was awkward.

If Xander/Hinoka does not place decently well, blood will be spilled.

I'll probably end up giving some insight into the results when there are around 100 votes for each poll. Right now there are around 80 for the shared characters and 40-50 for the rest. Several patterns have already shown up but I still want more votes to be more accurate.

I would also appreciate it if someone shared the polls on reddit or something...

No gay bandit threesome option for the Ducks? I can't imagine them agreeing to separate like that.

I hindsight I probably should've added something like that, but I'll just keep them separate for convenience.

If you don't have any preferences, then you should just skip the question so you don't mess with the data. I'll probably get to the second generation eventually.

It didn't take too long, actually; copying and pasting is your friend. I did have to look up what the Revelation-exculsive pairings were, but in total the whole thing took around 2 hours.

I'd better see Corrin/Azura near the top or so help me

My apologies, I didn't know that was an option.

I did this thinking what would genuinely be best for each character if I were that character? Its why I voted Takumi x Oboro even though I usually do Takumi x Camilla. I think Oboro would be better for him in this case.

I have said Corrin and Velour, and therefore, it is canon.

I said Corrin and Laslow does that make it canon?

Actually, you'll see I said Corrin/Azura first, so that makes it canon.

I didn't realize we could skip questions, either! Although I'd have only skipped one, so it didn't really affect my voting.

The bonus poll was hilarious.

I genuinely think Azura has better & more romantic supports with almost everyone other than Corrin... She and Mozu were hardest to vote for because I love them with too many characters.

Yes but you see, Velour is totes adorbs while Azura is a plot convenience with legs.

I rest my case, honored members of Serenes Forest Waifu Court.
