it's been 3 years now since i first met these two, and coming up for what i class as my true 3 year anniversary with them!
i got pokemon sword for my birthday back in 2020 despite not planning to pick up the game at first since i wasn't as hugely into pokemon as i used to be at the time, and who would've known that it would've resulted in me ultimately becoming more interested in my lifelong special interest than ever, and that it would've brought me to having actual ultimate favourite pokemon characters.
though, i didn't immediately think much of them. i didn't have the visceral hatred that a lot of people have for whatever reason, i was just sorta neutral on them. it wasn't until the 30th of september 2020 that i really became a fan of them. and even then, while i was still a huge fan of them, and credit this date as my anniversary with the twins, it wasn't until november 2021 that i became fixated on them again and have not stopped being fixated on them since. my friends are probably so tired of hearing about them at this point please send help.
but regardless of how embarrassed i feel talking about them constantly to my friends the way i do, these characters really mean a lot to me. and for this reason, i decided to create this page dedicated to them, and how happy they make me.
sordward and shielbert are twin brothers who appear in and act as the antagonists of the postgame segment of sword and shield! (i'll add an actual summary of their role in the plot here someday, i'm just lazy.)
i've been very open about how i selfship and how sordward x sonia is like kinda a selfship thing for me...it's hard to explain how i feel about shielbert, because i would say i view shielbert romantically but to a lesser extent? but that's also not to say that i don't like shielbert as much because i do. you know what maybe someday i'll stop being a coward and i'll draw art of me kissing both of them.
