As for popularity on the Fields of Justice, that's an even easier question. Large swords wielded by people who knows how to use them rarely ever go out of style in Summoner's Rift. Sometimes the simplest things are the most effective.
(OOC: You're doubting someone who has very limited social skills for wondering why they're suddenly popular? Her entire life has been the military, in which relationships are not allowed, leading to her exile, in which she spent the majority of time alone. Of course she's not going to understand other people.)

I have faced Yi many times, winning or losing. The main factor in the outcome is the amount of items either of us have, but summoner skill also plays a role. However, in a straight battle without any of this, I believe I'd come out on top. Yi is quick with the blade, but he deson't use any form of disruption towards his opponent.

I hope my question isn't too personal, but I would simply like to get a better understanding of the kind of person you are, Miss Riven. If you find it too personal, feel free not to answer. The last thing I would want to do is offend you.
I... have honestly never thought of that. It's a foreign idea to me, but I suppose you're right. I would need to settle down eventually, assuming I've made it that far. I think, though, that I would be required on the High Command in order to keep Noxus on track for as long as I can. That would be my goal at that point. I realize I can only do so much for it in my lifetime (I really don't like the idea of relying on necromancy to live longer), but I want to ensure Noxus' future is a good one.
If, by some chance, I were to meet someone who shared my beliefs and goals, I think I'd like for them to join me (I've been alone for a long time, and while I do enjoy my solitude, sometimes I do like company). But I have yet to meet someone, at least here in the League, who would be willing to do so.

But she might be wearing a bit of her own too.
But as for her not being concentrated on her appearances, I think that she would try to look nice. The way I see her is that she isn't looking for someone. But if someone was looking for her she would more than welcome them. That being said, I don't see her every abandoning her quest even for some significant other. Although that might be terribly optimistic of me, just wishing her happiness and that every joy life has to offer finds her.
But that view of her might only be limited to myself. /shrug.
"Kaz" is, surprisingly, right on all counts on the 'corset' idea (*shudder*). How girls could possibly wear such a thing is beyond me.
As for me not caring about appearances... Well, that's not exactly it. I'm just more focused on function rather than flair. But if something were to look good without impairing me, then I'd easily consider it. The problem lies in that on a battlefield, most people aren't going there to impress, and if they are, they're trying to make up for something. Most trinkets, on the other hand, can only lead to getting in the way at some point.
I think, going back to what "Kaz" suggested earlier, that when I retire from my mission, I can afford to spend more effort on such things.
