Wow! Personally, I feel chrom/myunit have a better romantic relationship than anyone else. However, that is just personal xD
It all comes down to the husbandos. :p
I can see that, though, actually! Chrom / MyUnit has a pretty big advantage in that the two actually interact outside of support conversations, something most of the other characters don’t seem to do very often. The supports are a little silly (and to be fair, all the supports are a little silly!), but they’re balanced out by the events of the game, which really seems to be emphasizing the idea that Chrom has a lot of trust and respect for the avatar.
which I’m sure will never come back to bite him That’s never a bad basis for a relationship - and besides, how awesome would it be to lead an army to save the world with your sweetie?
I suppose if you want to look at it that way, it also kinda helps to endear the player to the more plot-important characters, which certainly can’t hurt any. Ultimately, though, it’s like you said - it’s personal preference, either way. XD
Who Reyou romancing?!
Who am I romancing? Well, I had my avatar marry Stahl, because he’s basically a puppy that learned how to ride a horse and stab people in the face with various pointy objects.
And is surprisingly good at it, too. I was a little tempted to try and hit on Chrom, because why not hit on the protagonist, but to be honest I find the Chrom / Female Unit romantic comedy sketch of a support way funnier if they’re not love interests. “Wait, you’re a woman? OKAY, I’VE SEEN YOU NAKED, I KNOW YOU’RE A WOMAN NOW. HAHAHAHA - oh, gods, I hope our spouses don’t find out about this.”
In general, though, I’m still deciding on my ships. I’m not really paying any mind to who produces what child with what skills, so I’m pretty much just going by whatever seems cute or funny. I’ve been trying to get Virion and Maribelle to hook up on the general basis that they’re both full of themselves and thereby deserve each other, but the last two supports have been practically nothing but Maribelle badmouthing him so now I’m kinda wondering if that’s really a good choice. XD
Upgrading from Tactician to Grandmaster like:
“Who stole my pants?”
I’m disappointed that Lon’qu doesn’t have any supports with Libra. Come on, game! How could you miss the opportunity to have the gynophobe have wacky misunderstandings with the the man who looks like a woman?
As if I didn’t have enough trouble making decisions! I guess… I’d wish for money, the wisdom to make it last, and the peace of mind to know that I didn’t make a mistake.

Maybe the Rousin’s human mate is the one who got the pearl? And he is willing to part with it in exchange for them being the Queen’s Champion in the battle so the two of them can spend their lives together without fear of a revolt and bloodshed?
To be honest, I’d never really thought of writing him into the story all that much - I always just saw him as this kind-hearted fellow with no real capacity for war, and not much else. But, now that I think about it, I like your idea! I’ve already established that the offspring of the Aenuil (maybe I should just call them gillmen or something? XD) is psychically indistinguishable from whatever race they’re paired with, so maybe her mate actually is half-human, much like Lamont, and inherited the pearl from his parent. If I call back to earlier versions of the story, the sea spirit usually acts through an oracle, so maybe the pearl is just meant to establish the connection between the oracle and the spirit, and thereby not required to be in their possession at all times - just when it comes time to select a new oracle. If the pearl’s keeper was the mate’s parent, that would give a reasonable excuse for him to have it - especially if he didn’t know exactly what it was until the party showed up looking for it. I’m sure if he found out, he’d be happy to give it up - but if he can happen to lessen his and his family’s chances of a bloody death in return, then that’s all the much better.
