Bleeeeehhhh ShyxJarvan shipping, it's like people don't even know Shyvana's lore and considerations.

Besides Quinn has the hots for jarv.

But if you remember Shyvanna's lore, Jarvan helped Shyvanna so she might have a crush ya know?
FranBunnyFFXII Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
How exactly would that cause anything other than a mutual respect?
Besides it's quite apparent that people have no experience in the military or in combat. 
Shyvana is a military woman, not your common citizen. She's a woman of power, valor, and learned her way of life through strife and combat. Her gender doesn't make her automatically inclined to feel anything romantic towards a man.
I spent time in the military, I know Shyvana's experience and struggles in life far better than most.
So many people miss understand her, and frankly it's pretty depressing.
To be honest, Shyvana's behavior and motivations are more telling of a butch lesbian, than a the "cute" straight woman people keep trying to envision Shvyana as.
People assume things of Shyvana which in the end, aren't anything like her at all.

Well, I would see Shyvana more as a "Legion of one". A Person that dosent want anything than to fight and to get a target, she dosent feel much for her companions (If she has some), she only has the target, nothing more and nothing less, she dosent like humans at all, if we consider the lore, and she is the only Half-Dragon known at the time. Putting her with Jarvan into a ship isnt maybe the best thing to do, I'd say they are more comrades than anything else.

"Putting her with Jarvan into a ship isnt maybe the best thing to do, I'd say they are more comrades than anything else." While this is absolutely true, there's a bit of a miss understanding in her lore from you, but I can see why and it's not as bad as someone trying to ship her with Jarvan.
Looking at her lore, while she's a warrior and a powerhouse, known for being savage and powerful, she is infact a woman of military status. She's a demacian warrior, she serves Demacia as an Elite Guard and holds quite a pride in doing so. Considering all parts of her lore and persona, Demacia is Shyvana's home, the place that gave her a chance at peace and to get away from the strife of her early life.
She doesn't hate humans, she's just uncomfortable in social situations, but she thrives with her military friends, Jarvan being her closest friend, and Xin being the one she gets along with best outside of the deep warrior bond between Shyvana and Jarvan.
Taking a look at her with realism and her lore. She's actually a trope/personality type that's almost always or at least very often found with gay women, and she's a career military soldier.
Also her struggle with uncertainty in life would actually make her very strongly inclined to find a lover, taking a page from psychology, uncertainty and strife in early life tunes a person to find attachment and interest in whom they would feel attracted towards. And considering she's military, I could see her being no different than a male soldier, where they very often, in real life and fairytale, have a "girl back home."
Shyvana is a spitting image of that "strong lesbian/power girl" character trope, same with Vi. Shyvana's place in life psychologically and Lore reference, she wanted to find a lasting home. Demacia is that home of hers and I wouldn't be surprised at all if she's married to a girl she met sometime along the way in her journey.
Shyvana and Jarvan are more of a "Band of Brothers" who's lives are bound together because of the tides of war and blood shed, they don't mix romanitcally, but they share an ever lasting bond only ever shared between so warriors.
Given all the lore - we can't really have ANY consideration of what exactly would her love interest be, and what her sexual orientation is. People are different and all in all - auto-assuming she's a lesbian based on the fact that she's a warrior and kinda socialy awkward, is the same as auto-assuming Jarvan is her love interest based on the respect and friendship(well this is kinda step one before a romatic relationship can start, but doesn't really prove anything) they have(though Quinn is kinda annoying me, if I have to ship Jarvan with one of his friends I'd rather Shyvana... Just based on the fact that Quinn annoys me.). All in all - this is not counter intuitive to her, in fact we can't know what it is to her since the lore doesn't give information, so far I can say she's a good friend to Jarvan and they respect each other.... And thats it.
Also, how come lesbians are like men? Then I guess gay men are womanly? Thats just a stereotype we don't need to put here. "strong, warrior, career military soldier"+"woman" = "spitting image of strong lesbian/power girl"?. How come when you barely have any personal information on her? My point in all this: Let Shyvana be her own thing, why make her a character trope.

Although they do look kinda cute together, that I would admit. Anything for not giving Quinn a chance... My most hated foe.

"Anything for not giving Quinn a chance... My most hated foe."
So you're dragging your entire personal bias into this...

Ok, that's totally fair...
Sure. All of this, in fact the picture we're discussing is all personal bias, its fanmade - no in-lore proof of any of this, so we're jst throwing random stuff we thought up. And yes, I hate Quinn, she's like a Demacian Teemo to me. Is it all fair? No, but since when is fandom fair and unbiased?
Arcaneseas Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014
But I believe Shyvana x Jarvan makes for much better artwork. Are you denying that this is a beautiful piece?
FranBunnyFFXII Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Because it's so counter intuitive to the characters.

Character's and lore>self approving opinion.

They make the perfect Demacian couple.

Together forever we two.
