Arcane Incorrect Quote #64
Caitlyn: Yeah, being that pretty must be tiring.
Vi: Then you must be exhausted.
Jinx: Will you two shut up? Some of us are lonely.
She just bombs things and people. Or plans bombs and who to drop them on.
Caitlyn: I don’t get it Jinx. Is your plan to cause as much destruction and chaos as possible, so that others will now suffer just as you have?
Jinx: So, you do get it.
Headcanons that the amount of explosions and fires vi and cait have been in have taken a tole
CAIT DOES NOT HAVE CLEAR SKIN ONG SHE HAS SPLOTCHY SMALL BURN MARKS AND 1 BIG ONE ON HER FRONT AND BACK
Vi has some on her forearms and her face cause yk that bridge fire (i forgot???) she had to help cait out of took a tole on her
Jinx: We need to open this door, Caitlyn give me your credit card
Caitlyn:*hands her the card*
Jinx:*pockets it* thanks. Vi, kick the door down
Ok I have officially had enough of you bitches. Vi gets a weird amount of hate in this fandom for no fucking reason and her being one of the two main lesbian characters in the cast makes that more gross like I've read the same fucking rotten ass cold take about how she's a horrible sister and that her freaking out that HER 8 y/o SISTER SHE TOLD TO STAY AT HOME KILLED HER FAMILY AT THE AGE OF 15 is some type of absolute manipulative, violent bullshit only to go around romanticizing Jinx and Silco. Like yes they are a cute lil play on the found father/daughter trope, but like lets go back to using all of our brains people like he literally drew her deeper and deeper into her delusions and manipulated her into distrust and isolation. Like I'm afraid for some of you, the inability to see red flags here is very concerning.
Vi: I kinda like someone but I'm not sure how tell them, like what if it ruins what we have right now?
Jinx: Rip it off like a bandaid!
Vi: It's Caitlyn
Jinx: Put the bandaid back on!
Jinx: You know, we're not so different you and I.
Jinx: Your dad's rich, my dad's rich.
Jinx: You like guns, I love guns!
Caitlyn: We're really no-
Jinx: We both want to kill each other so we can keep Vi to ourselves!
Caitlyn: *internally screaming*
Jinx: But at the end of the movie, Sandy is the one changing for Danny, even though he's the one playing a character to be popular so it should be him-
Caitlyn, tied up: Please let me go home
Jinx: I'M NOT FINISHED!
Jinx: So is Sandy also gonna play a fake character even-
Vi: I’m kind of crushing on someone, but I’m worried about telling you who it is, because you’re not going to like it
Jinx: Just rip the bandage off.
Vi: It’s Caitlyn.
Jinx: Put the bandage back on.
Caitlyn: Is something burning?
Vi: Just my love for you.
Caitlyn: Vi, the toaster is on fire.
Jinx: I learned some very valuable lessons from this.
Vi: I’m guessing they are all far from the lessons you actually should’ve learned.
Jinx: Death isn’t real, and I’m basically God.
Vi: I want to wake up with you every day for the rest of our lives
Caitlyn: I wake up at 4:30 AM
Vi: I want to see you at some point every day for the rest of our lives
Jinx: *Walking in to a room* Sorry I’m late... I was... doing things.
*Sounds of running footsteps progressively getting louder*
Caitlyn: *Out of breath* THEY PUSHED ME DOWN THE FUCKIN’ STAIRS.
Vi has gone through it:
Arcane Incorrect Quote #35
Jinx: FIGHT ME, YOU NERD ASS SLUT!
Caitlyn: At least try to sound slightly more sophisticated when you threaten someone.
Jinx: Oh, I'm sorry. I should ask; dost thou want to engage in a duel, my good bitch?
Caitlyn: Somehow that's worse.
Jinx: Today, I have chosen violence.
Caitlyn: Genuine question, are there any days you haven’t chosen violence?
Jinx: Your wedding day.
My thoughts on why Jinx hates Caitlyn, which is probably over thinking things *spoilers*
To state the obvious, Jinx is jealous of Caitlyn and cold to her as well because she doesn’t want to share Vi with someone else.
Ok now with that out of the way, now it is time for a deeper dive…
I think that Jinx is jealous not only because she has to share Vi with Cait, but also because she is jealous of Cait in general.
In Arcane the main characters all have their own style of fighting, and their state of being in general. Caitlyn is calm and serene. Jinx is emotionally explosive and chaotic. Jinx is in a battle internally. All. The. Time. She is constantly hearing and seeing things that remind her of her past. Quite clearly it is clear to see that these hallucinations have a negative impact on her, which pretty much implies that she doesn’t want them. Caitlyn fights with the same weapon that Jinx does and is the color blue like Jinx is (a different shade I know). But I think that Jinx envies the calm that Caitlyn has. Caitlyn is a perfect example of what Jinx COULD have been. It also shows the impact that the separation of Piltover and Zaun has on its people.
I also want to this:
Caitlyn's colors: Blue and purple
Jinx’s color: Light blue
Caitlyn’s eye color: Light blue
Jinx’s eye color: First blue, then purple
Though this could be absolutely a coincidence, it is also a connection to each other. “The eyes are the window to the soul” and I think that in both Caitlyn's and Jinx’s soul lies the same most important thing: Vi.
Caitlyn and Jinx are very similar, which bothers Jinx because Caitlyn is the future that Jinx wanted.
Jinx wanted a stable home, wanted parents, wanted food, but couldn’t have it because of people like Caitlyn and Caitlyn’s family.
Soooooo yeah :)
I’ve seen people do this so i thought it would be funny i did it too

arcane characters as things my friends and i have said…part two
caitlyn: ooo cool photoshop
jinx: yeah something you can use to fix your ugly face.
caitlyn: fuck you
is there a story where jinx realizes that Caitlyn isn't that bad and she gives really good hugs?
Unfortunately my friend, this blog is still quite new and (I moderate every post due to some concerns about possibly iffy content, but haven't managed to read all of the fics myself... yet ;) I don't remember any of such fics flying by, since starting it?
Personally, I encountered similar scenarios only in (mostly teen) AUs, with a quite young Powder. But now that you asked, I would LOVE to see a canon compliant one, with Jinx.
Because as you noted - Cait does give really really good hugs...
So if any one of you lovely ffic addits out there would be so kind to help us out...
Recs, links, pointers, anything?
There's at least two of us now who'd be very very grateful, so...
I mean it’s gonna take a while but Jinx’ll warm up to Caitlyn eventually. Caitlyn just has to prove herself and Vi just has to explain that she loves them both in very different ways.
