At least she’s trying.

This is just an excuse to draw cutesy Weiss and use stupid puns bite me. Yang probably has another trap card and she’s just letting Weiss gloat for a bit.

Okay, I’m using this as a platform, because quite honestly I’m tired of this behavior and I need to vent about it for a minute. Nothing personal, OP, but your secret was the one to put the final hole in the dam, so here it goes:

If you need to insult something else in order to make your thing look good, then your thing is not worth defending in the first place.

Point blank, straight up, it isn’t. “MY FAVORITE GAME IS GREAT BECAUSE THIS OTHER GAME ISN’T” or “MY FAVORITE CHARACTER IS AWESOME AND THIS OTHER CHARACTER IS A STUPID BITCH” or “MY SHIP IS SO WONDERFUL UNLIKE THIS OTHER SHIP WHICH SUCKS” doesn’t make your game/character/ship look good by comparison. Rather, it makes it look worse because it implies that it can’t stand on its merits, that you don’t have enough good points to talk about when it comes to your favorite thing, that you have to bash another thing in order to make yours look better.
Truth be told, I like the humor in Graces! I actually think the humor was one of its strongest points. I could actually talk a bit about the many skits in Graces that made me actually laugh, especially in the Future arc when Richard joined. That said? I don’t need to diss another game, whether it’s Xillia, Symphonia, Vesperia, Abyss, or even escort titles like Dawn of the New World to do that. I don’t have to bring down another game in order to show why Graces’ humor is so great, because Graces’ humor can stand on its own.
But I see this all the time, that people do that, that someone will comment on why they really love something while trashing on something else in the process. Oftentimes I see it used as a defense. Someone will say, for example, “I don’t like Vesperia much,” and the rebuttal will be, “At least Vesperia was GOOD, unlike GRACES,” as if saying Graces is bad somehow makes Vesperia great. Or if someone says, “Lloyd wasn’t that great to me,” people will counter with, “At least he’s not a pissbaby like Emil!” And don’t even get me started on the ship wars. The Colloyd vs. Sheelloyd ship wars were some of the most violent I remember seeing in this fandom, and at the end of the day all it consisted of was one side bashing Colette to show Sheena as the “better choice” for Lloyd while the other ripped Sheena apart to make Colette “look better.” 
The point is, I hate that. I hate that attitude, that mentality of, “I have to tear down this one thing to make my thing look good.” No. You don’t. If you like a thing, if you think a thing has merits, then talk about the merits of that thing, don’t drag another entirely unrelated thing into the mix in order to try and disparage it to make your thing look better. Because, do you know what? In this case specifically, while they are part of the same series of (mostly) unrelated games, Tales of Xillia and Tales of Graces are two very different games. They have a different art style, different story style, different game play style. And that isn’t to say that you can’t prefer one over the other, but it is to say that enjoying the humor in Graces has zip to do with the humor in Xillia, and that implying the humor in Xillia is lesser or worse by saying “only sexual jokes/innuendo” exist in it (which isn’t true) does not make Graces look better in comparison.
But really, it’s the attitude as a whole that gets me. That, “I like this thing, so I need to tear down this other thing to make it look better” attitude that gets me. If you’re in a conversation that’s already about which thing is better—such as, if you’re asked whether you prefer, say, Noishe or Repede—then by all means, go for it. But bringing up something completely unrelated to trash on it to make your preference look like a shining beacon of greatness is something I see all the time in this fandom, and to be honest I’m getting pretty sick of it.

This song has the power to both stop the beating of my heart, and restart it all at once. It’s like time becomes irrelevant and nothing else is important but this song.
