Accel World, Vol. 1 (light novel): Kuroyukihime's Return by Reki Kawahara
The central relationship in Accel World is that of Haruyuki and Kuroyukihime, it is a relationship marked by repressed feelings and the power. Guided by the wisdom of a legendary Burst Linker, Haruyuki must now acquire new Idea ListsExplore ShowroomScout | Style ExplorerTake the Home Style Quiz Kuroyukihime's dream of uncovering the secrets of the Accelerated World. .. and it's complicated childhood friend relationships are what make this anime. As of v14 (farthest English translation), Kuroyukihime trusts Haruyuki more than some of even the older Negabu members in terms of her IRL.
There is a sense of helplessness about her character, partly shown through her desperate attempts to conceal certain horrible truths about what she has done from Haruyuki. In many respects Kuroyukihime has become a prisoner of the Accel World, constantly pushing towards achieving her goals or die trying. Her fear therefore is that such a goal will break up her relationship with Haruyuki, and that his goal of supporting her will utterly consume and destroy him as well.
The Accel World and the relationship that Kuroyukihime and Haruyuki share within it greatly affect how they interact in reality as well. While in the Accel World Haruyuki is this beautifully sleek silver avatar with the rare flying ability, an unheard of fighter who is unique and special.
However in the real world he is a short and chubby middle schooler who was constantly bullied and has a significant inferiority complex when it comes to Kuroyukihime and his friends, who are all beautiful or spectacular in what they do. By making his character so very different from everyone else in the series this juxtaposition between sleek, brilliant and unique as opposed to short and chubby becomes even more marked.

- Accel World, Vol. 1 (light novel): Kuroyukihime's Return
His normal inferiority complex and attitudes become even more powerful in the real world, with Haruyuki constantly worrying about what others would think if they saw him with Kuroyukihime. He cannot accept that someone as beautiful and strong as Kuroyukihime loves him, and thus seems to feel that in order to justify her love he has to become as strong, and perhaps as merciless as she once was.
Furthermore, in recent episodes when we see Haruyuki apparently lose his flying ability for good, he automatically believes that this now makes him useless and less than the dirt of the floor. The amount of faith that he has placed upon his Silver Crow avatar is ultimately one of his weaknesses, since without this power and uniqueness he believes that his existence means absolutely nothing.
For her part, Kuroyukihime seems to want to get close to Haruyuki, using every opportunity to use a direct link and eat lunch together. And yet, despite being so close there is also a significant distance between them. This gap is in part artificially created by both characters using terms such as parent and child, legionmaster and her subordinate that are used to skirt around the issue of their relationship.
The Accel World constantly invades their personal space, and even during a lunch break when they are using a short and intimate cable to talk we consistently have conversations regarding the status of the Accel World and their legion within it.
They are handy tags used to denote a place and a rank, leaving out the idea of any other sort of relationship or feelings. They are therefore used to skirt around the issue, deliberately avoiding the questions that they must answer, but wish to ignore. We have seen Kuroyukihime declare her love with Haruyuki and even save him from an oncoming car almost at the cost of her life, but she also sometimes appears incapable of truly expressing her emotions.
She loves Haruyuki, and yet the Accel World takes up such a significant place within her heart and mind that she cannot move away from it and focus on Haruyuki. They are both guilty of putting barriers in the way of their relationship, and yet it appears that Kuroyukihime is the one who ultimately seems to stay out of reach.

She is clearly a little awkward around him, although this is perhaps in part due to her having no experience with being in love. Within the Accel World and her life before meeting Haruyuki we see a character he is cold, calm and collected, capable of rationalising everything, and consumed by the desire to learn all the hidden truths about the world. However, Kyouko Yuuki denies the fact that she made such a fatal mistake and pins the blame on her husband.
Because of this event, she might have been against Asuna dating Kirito. The reason I'm stating this is that maybe Asuna's mother couldn't accept Asuna's relationship. So they must of had a delay in Marriage and making a baby. Now for Kuroyukihime's real name. Black Lotus was called Sacchan by Sky Raker. Sachi from Sword Art Online sound similar.
Maybe Kirito named her after Sachi? If you split her name into 3, It's stated as Kuro-Yuki-Hime.

Princess may have come from what her family is. Her hair usually has two strands of hair extended from the top of her brow, resembling the antenna of a butterfly. When Kuroyukihime was hospitalized, she had her hair in a ponytail.
