This.Jaina does not "need a man". No woman honestly, seriously "needs a man" 'kay thanks bye. (It goes the other way, too, but man-needs-woman has less unfortunate implcations of doom.) I thought that line of thought went out with terrifying and flammable polyester pants and the goldenrod-coloured appliance set. Apparently it has experienced a resurgence, much like said appliance sets and pants. Sigh.Jaina needs a vacation, yes. Jaina needs a break, so she can relax and be happy again (because while I dig Varian as a character, wrangling him has GOT to wear on the nerve endings something fierce). Jaina does not necessarily need a man to accompany her on this vacation.Jaina was a brave, independent and whup-ass character until...I don't know, until WoW's writers apparently got into Richard Knaak's terrifying and unholy stash of NOOOO and decided his way of writing women made sense..? I wish I knew, I really did. Blizzard, where went her spine? Why in the name of Kil'jaeden's fiery bojangles did you give her a spine-ectomy!? This angers me. The record for writing the franchise's whup-assed women is not good at this point (what the crap is this terribly-written thing with Sylvanas and WHERE IS TYRANDE, YOU FOOLS), and I am not an optimistic sort with regard to this.Honestly, I'd like to NOT see Jaina reduced to just the girlfriend. I'd like to see her having a life of her own again, and whipping ass and taking names in her usual elegant way. That said, I don't want to see her pointlessly paired off with Varian Wrynn. Let's face it, that'd be a detriment to both their characters, and...this is Varian, COME ON! He's NOT emotionally ready for it by any means.Believe me, leaping into a relationship facefirst when one is grieving is the worst way to start said relationship.
