    Default "Best" Baby

    Who+Who=Best Baby?

    Which two people would you think would produce the BEST baby in your opinion.

    Now, best can mean anything you want it to. Strongest? (We're assuming that the baby's parents teach it skills) Riches? Most Evil? etc.

    So give your choices and a little statement explaining why.

    I'm curious to think who you guys think would make the most evil baby? I really can't decide at the moment because of the lack of REALLY evil women. (I know there are evil women, but I can think of two men that out-evils them.)

    We've had variations of this discussion before, but one thing to bear in mind is that other than physique and appearance, many of the qualities that define a particular wuxia character (or any person, for that matter) come from the sum total of that individual's life experiences, not from his or her biological traits.

    i'd agree with ken about life experiences being the biggest factor. look at GJ and HR's kids --- those are two of the best heroes in JY's canon (i don't think GJ compares too badly to XF, by the way) yet their kids were a total crapshoot. GF was completely horrible and spoiled, PoLu was brave but really mediocre, and of course our favorite GX turned out to have a horrible love life (or lack thereof), but really excelled in martial arts.

    it's a tough call, but i'd probably have to give this one to YG and XLN. not only would it be a happy and peaceful environment to grow up in, YG has also tempered a lot of his mischieviousness with the maturity from his 16 years wait. and we all know how beautiful XLN was.

    as a bit of an off topic, do you guys think yellow dress girl in HSDS is really a descendant from YG? i'm really not convinced...

    Well it's either them or that other couple living in the tomb...

    Why do you doubt it? It seems logical, seeing her skills and such.

    it does seem logical, and i really do want to believe it as ROCH is my fave book of JY's, and YG my fave character also. i just think to myself that if this young girl Lady Yang has kept up with all of the affairs of JiangHu from whatever secluded location she grew up in, then that means YG and XLN must have heard about whatever happened to GJ and HR. i just find it hard to believe that they could live peacefully without going and saving GJ and HR from death.

    You never know, Yang Guo and Xiao Long Nu always wanted to retire to a farm, or go back to the tomb forever. (Is it just me, or do all heroes want to be farmers?) It is very possible that YG and XLN had this kid late, and even though she kept up with Jian Hu's affairs it was after GJ and HR's deaths.

    My pick would be

    Ultimate Heroic Couple: Duan Zhengming + Wu Santong's wife

    Ultimate Evil: Madam Ma + Ding Chunqiu

    Evil Couple = Yue Buquan + Madame Ma (OYF was ambitious but it doesn't seem like he would resort to plan after plan of sneak attack and blaming other people)

    Most Evil Child from Evil father = Jiang Yu Liang
