I just happened upon this place the other day and decided to sign up right now. I had no idea that these games actually had a dedicated fanbase. I first played through the original Golden Sun about a year or two ago, and I finally had enough time to pick up the Lost Age around Christmas 2016.

Anyways, this place seems pretty neat. I was doing some reading around a little while ago and apparently this game used to have a lot of shippers? I never knew, most of the characters seemed incompatible to me.

I will say though, I enjoy the fact that there's actually a website dedicated to Kraden. He deserves more love, it seems like all he ever gets is offscreen conversations with :felix:

Hey Blueshoe~! Welcome to the Temple. ^^ And hey, Kraden at least gets the best offscreen conversations with Felix. And lots of nerding out over scholarly things and being team grandpa. In addition to being the Almighty, of course!

Haha, it's interesting that you thought they were incompatible! I think part of it was the minimalist characterization: people were/are easily able to project whatever compatibilities they wanted and explore lots of different angles onto the characters. I know quite a few of us wrote fanfiction like that too.
How far are you through TLA? I don't want to say too much!

I hope you're enjoying it, though! And yeah, welcome again! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Kraden is a smooth operator. He could handle all the delicate conversations in TLA with ease.

Alright, thanks for the warm reception here. About the characters, I actually thought that the weaker personalities made it harder to come up with pairings that made sense. I'm not too big on shipping, but I did think about plausible shippings for this series after hearing about how popular shipping had been here... When I tried to come up with some I just ended up going with this for the main cast:

:isaac: :jenna: (canon of course)

:felix: :sheba:

:ivan: :mia: (I don't think I've ever seen anyone else support this pairing though...)

and the other two I really couldn't figure out what to do with... Garet just seems to silly to do anything serious like pairings with. Plus everybody always seems to be reprimanding him :/

But anyways, about The Lost Age, I've really been enjoying the game so far. I'm about to get to Jupiter Lighthouse, so I'll be meeting up with Isaac's party again soon. I really like having the ship!

Haha, I pinged our resident Ivan-Mia / puretortureshipping (that's the ship name for it) fan, so you should hear from her soon, wwww

Good taste, though! Felix-Sheba is one of my favourites. Lighthouseshipping, yessss
Isaac-Jenna is one of those ones that I never got passionate about, but it's kinda just a rock, you know? solid.

I also like :felix: :karst: a lot too, mostly framed as tragic backstory, but well, you'll see fufufu~

I've actually never seen any anime before ever.

My other interests are music (I used to browse rateyourmusic a lot,) and I've recently started reading a lot again too. My favorite musicians are Interpol, The Strokes, Joy Division, Neutral Milk Hotel, Big Star, and this one really unknown band called the Red Stick Ramblers. Though my all time favorite group is Uncle Tupelo

As for books, my personal favorite is Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

My favorite game series besides Golden Sun would probably have to be the Mother/EarthBound series, but I also play some Advance Wars and Fire Emblem too. I used to play Smash a lot but not as much these days. My favorite game when I was a kid was that old EA game Spore, but it runs really poorly on my computer now so I quit playing years ago

and finally, most of my shoes are indeed blue. not all though. just most.

really glad to see that other people actually like that one. I always thought that putting Ivan and Mia together made a little more sense than Mia and Garet, but maybe that's just because I don't really like pairing Garet

I've never heard of any of those bands so now I want to look them up. I love finding new music.

:felix: X :sheba: are probably one of my favorite pairings.
And then :mia: x :garet: Not saying why. You'll figure it out eventually.
And then of course :isaac: x :jenna: .

And then there was only one pairing I liked from Dark Dawn. I'll tell you whenever you end up playing it!
