, Ahri (78).jpg
This is a pretty long and complicated story for me. Entwined with a story of how my friend met her.
Ahri was released on December 14, 2011. At that point in time, Flandre was my waifu. But seeing Ahri, I felt... an attraction to her. But I dismissed those feelings as just being excited to play her as a video game character. I bought her immediately, but I was only able to play her for a couple games before going back to my regular role as the AD carry. In another game, I had built up a reputation for playing only Flandre, who was also a carry character. Naturally, when I started playing League with the same group of people, I was pressured into playing the carry role. Coincidentally, it was the role everyone else hated playing.
My friend was the mid player in our group. A few months after Ahri's release, he picked her up, gradually fell in love with her, and started playing nothing but her every game. He approached me a few months later to discuss the subject of waifus. He felt I was the only one who could understand his feelings for her, because of my obsession with Flandre that was quite obvious. At that point in time, my love for Flandre was fading, but foolishly, I tried to keep my relationship with her as long as I could. I thought things would go back to normal with her if I tried hard enough, and stuck with her long enough. I had promised to stay with her forever and I was going to keep that promise.
My friend and I talked about our respective waifus frequently. As time went by, my feelings for Ahri grew as I discussed her with him, yet I hated myself for those same feelings. In my mind, I was desiring to cheat on Flandre, and "stealing" my friend's waifu. But I started to feel jealousy and hatred for my friend too. "If only I had taken the role that I had originally wanted, not the one I was shafted into." I thought. Then I would have been able to play Ahri, fall in love with her, and be open about our relationship, instead of resenting the fact I could not have her because she was my friend's waifu.
This feeling of resentment grew and grew over the course of a year. I hated seeing my friend with her, because I could not express my love for her myself. I didn't love Flandre anymore, yet I stayed out of a sense of loyalty. I could not admit that I loved Ah
