League of Legends Lore - Riot's Experiments

I have to say, quite a number of experimental lore on the League of Legends beta site are just horrendous.

Now, I don't really have the time to pinpoint all of them, so I'll just take one example. Take Ahri Ahri and Wukong Wukong's relationship with each other for example. Whoever wrote the lore for them, the current stance in beta is that they are lovers. It should be common knowledge by now that Wukong is based on the actual Sun Wukong in Chinese Mythlogy, who is a monkey born from stone, who wrecked havoc in the past, got punished, and served Sanzang Fashi to redeem himself.

Riot's lore for Wukong as Master Yi's one and only disciple is perfectly fine as it is, they only have to update Master Yi's lore to collaborate with Wukong's lore. Ahri's lore on the other hand, while it does have no connection with anyone else, is still better than forcing a connection with Wukong. It doesn't really make any sense when you think about it. Why would Wukong, whose goal is to improve himself and find better opponents, fall in love with a fox?

Well... this isn't the first time Riot wrote bad lore. Just look at Shyvana Shyvana and Katarina Katarina... Soraka Soraka and Warwick Warwick's lore had some bad changes too

Still, if you would really want to associate Ahri with someone else, who would you associate with?
