Hmm, that's considering a good part of the US fanbase watched the sub. But yeah, I do remember Shirley's popularity went way up after her death.

Yes, that too. Point is, she had no desire to change him. Which goes back to my theory of how Lelouch and Kallen, the black-winged ones, complement eachother. While Shirley, the angelic and pure one, wished to help and complete him.

She's not that kind of important to him, get over it.

But if we go by what Sol said, Shirley definitely had a desire to help Lelouch. I think she was actually on a quite a role in Turn 13 until you-know-what happened.
Her help wouldn't be enough. Lelouch couldn't just lift her from school without raising suspicion, so she'd still be removed from him, and where it mattered he couldn't turn to anyone.

From the whole student council {Milly, Rivalz, Nina}, Shirley was the most important for Lelouch, and that is not even up for arguing.
And darth, honest, lol, bringing up Milly again in the Shirley-section? Really? 8D

She really wouldn't have to go anywhere, thouogh. She'd still be able to communicate with him after she chose to help him and change him, and furthermore, Lelouch wouldn't have completely abandoned Ashford had she survived.

Well, we don't know how/if it would've gone down. All it takes is one motivational speech (according to Anime Rules 101) And then who knows what role she could've played after that. No one ever said Lelouch would have to "lift her from school"

Ah yes, the domino effect of her death. He probably wouldn't have to have put up with a lot of crap if not for that.

Fair enough. Phone conversations would probably be enough.

And I still feel that Shirley x Lelouch was a bad omen prior to her death. She wasn't the only Ashford girl that Lelouch was attracted to. Milly was the only other favorite. Regardless if Shirley had survived or not. Had Lelouch returned to Ashford Academy, he would have had to deal with Milly anyway. So, I will not get over that.

Everything was too concentrated on a girl who the staff didn't develop in a manner that would have convinced me to believe that Shirley would had been Lelouch's soulmate. The same could be applied to Milly and Kallen, since the staff never even bothered to develop a Lelouch x Milly or Lelouch x Kallen relationship.

To be fair, neither Kallen, Milly, or Shirley ever had the chance to develop a strong cohesive relationship with Lelouch that would have made me believe that they could become a couple outside the battlefield. Everything was rushed, as far as plot development goes, and not enough character development. Thus everything is all speculation, mine included.

Yeah, he was also attracted to Kallen. Milly isn't part of the equation, so stop trying to inflate her importance.

The bold part is the only thing you got right.

Yours is just plain false, Shirley and Kallen got development. You're just trying to water it down as rushed so Milly doesn't look like a complete fantasy.

You mean despite the fact that she had graduated and was a weather girl? And dude, c'mon it's debatable that Lelouch was even attracted to Shirley (or any girl for that matter) Milly? I don't think so.

Uh, the staff did develop Lelouch x Shirley and Lelouch x Kallen relationships. Maybe it wasn't dominant or the highlight of the show, but that's not what Code Geass is about, and considering that I'd say their development was more than adequate.

Oh, and also not supposed to be totally convinced that Shirley or Kallen were Lelouch's soulmates. They left it purposefully ambiguous since a lot of it was very one-sided on the girls' sides. But Shirley and Kallen, compared to Milly, at least got some decent development.

Shirley got an "i don't know anymore" in question if he did like her. Milly got nothing. That is not on the same pedestal, stop making it "seem" like it is, when canon facts from the show prove you otherwise.

You guys take things WAY too seriously.

Ashford Academy was an important part of Lelouch's life because of Milly Ashford. I don't think that Kallen or Shirley would have done that for him if the circumstances were different.

No, you make MILLY SEEM SO IMPORTANT, when that is not the case.

And again, what? Ashford what? Just because it was pretty much Milly's property, does Lelouch have to like her? Obligation? lol, what?

Says the man who denies the very word of the creators so he can feel content in his opinion that Milly is the secret love interest of Lelouch. We take this show for what it is, you take it for what you want it to be and ignore the facts. Ashford was important because his friends were there. All of them, not just Milly.

Flashnews, Milly was not the ONLY friend Lelouch did have, there were other people, that probably seem BLURRY shapes to you, right?

Also, Kallen and Shirley, on an AU universe being Milly-Ashford-property what? You are making a total AU point, just to put your own personal input, that Milly was the only one that would help Lelouch, while the other girls would...asgfdhdksjghdf, ok honest, this does not make sense. Honest.

Done what? Take him in and give him a place in the school? You don't know that. Shirley is a very kind soul and I'm sure she'd be very willing. And what do you mean by different circumstances?

EDIT: Yeah, plus what incorrupts and morbos said.

And Shirley rox! Let's get back on track and stop the cross. Darth, Milly gived it up for Shirley in the hat episode. Case closed.

Azul, i suppose you're right, i never saw those imagens in this way(you can say i'm very dense), but it makes an awful sense, hehe.

There was a time when people used to talk about Milly as much as Kallen and Shirley. Now all there is are just the Shirley x Kallen fans who want to discard Milly x Lelouch.

I certainly would love to see a redo of Code Geass R2 that would return to its season one roots.

Newsflash: Shirley was dead. And we never really knew if Lelouch had any romantic feelings for her.

That's nice; but that's not the point of this thread. So, get back on topic or I'll start reporting your posts for being off-topic.
