By extension, if my character or mech gets rejected for any reason I'll automatically assume it's because whoever's GMing this now hates gay people.

Or, you know, he's 14. And this isn't the kind of game where teenagers under 18 years get to pilot giant robots. That would be another, far more likely reason than the GM being homophobic.

oh god, why did I have to read that last sentence

whyyyy

If I was going to reject him, I'd probably reject him because he's 14, and therefore too young and annoying. Also, purely because you don't want Tano to be shipped, he's going to be shipped, as it'll be hilarious.

The simple solution to not getting shipped is to make him easy to not like.

Errr.

Nobody angsts. Except Trevor. And even his angst isn't bad.
Then there won't be any problems. Excellent.

Besides, there have been tons of 14 year old mech pilots in fictional media. Like Shinji Ikari, Rei Ayanami, Simon the Digger..... I've only watched TTGL and RoE 2.22. I'm guessing some of the Gundam characters are 14.

What's 'abbr'?

All fanfics are heresy, each and every one, especially the shipping ones. Those are by far the worst.

....you just had to pick some of the most mentally fucked up characters in mecha anime and the character who got a time-skip half way through the series as examples, didn't you? :P

Pretty sure the Gundam characters are 16-18, even older, though.

Well, this is not that mecha anime. Schmucks can and will actually die during the course of the game.

No, I'm pretty sure Evangelion's worse than this game. And Gurren Lagann is after the end. And we all know who dies there.

I don't know about Neon Genesis Evangelion, but Rebuild of Evangelion isn't really that bad. In 1.11, Shinji angsts a lot but none of the main characters die and by 2.22, his angst is actually at pretty ok levels. I mean sure Asuka dies but it looks like she'll be coming back to life within the next movie and sure Shinji looks like he's about to cause the third impact but there's two more movies after 2.22 so I'm sure everything will work out in the end. Just to make it perfectly clear, I have no idea what happens after 2.22, so please no spoilers.

EDIT:

Yeah, so? This is not those mecha shows. We don't have to have 14 year olds piloting mechas. Especially since they is supposedly a proper military operation.

A proper military operation with two super mecha, two pilots who happen to be hot-blooded badasses with one having a freaking mask and the other looking like she literally strolled out of a super mecha show, but a proper military operation. :P

And they're both older than 18, and so can be proper soldiers. Having super robots in a game does not automatically make 14 year olds eligible to fight in the military.
