So I spent too much time making a Mass Effect click and drag… :I
I’ll post my results in a second !!!
I guess that makes me a krogan adept renegade who prefers his submachine gun when out shooting stuff with squaddies Mordin and Javik. Following the destruction ending, he salvaged his stuff from the ruins of his home on the Citadel and moved into a new place somewhere with love interest Steve Cortez.
I might also be an asari vanguard paragade, toting an assault rifle as she fights alongside Garrus and Miranda. Her lover is Ashley Williams (yes!!!) and they have a cozy little place on Rakhana, which was destroyed along with everything else after the refusal ending (suck it, starchild.)

maybethings asked: Joker/EDI
vomit / don’t ship / ok / cute / adorable / sexy / perfect / beyond flawless / hot damn / screaming and crying / i will ship them in hell
Both times I’ve completed ME3, I’ve helped them get together. I enjoy companion character pairings when they happen. But I don’t really have strong shippy feelings for Joker/EDI in the game.
In fanart, it’s different. There are some really nice works of Joker/EDI fanart that make me adore them together.
But, I think I might be unfairly biased against them. I still have a Shepard who hasn’t quite finished ME2 (Overlord and Arrival left to finish). This Shepard has gone through ME & ME2 with no real romance recognized by the game. I was hoping to pair her with either Joker or Ashley in ME3, but neither of those can happen. I would probably ship Joker/EDI more enthusiastically if I hadn’t been holding out a little hope for a Shepard pairing.
Joker/EDI is cute though. I like them a lot.
work would be a lot more fun if i could vanguard charge down the hallways

Sometimes it’s the small, silly tokens that bring the most delight.
(And by small, silly token, I meant the model Mako…not the sex, which I am sure was beyond delightful.)
(And for the record, I really want a model Mako.)
oh! this is so clever. and look how much liara is pleased with herself. :-)

on romances and forever!alone characters in bioware games
Mass Effect and Dragon Age, specifically.
i like playing or thinking about main characters who never pursue any of the romances. personally i like to imagine that they had a really wonderful relationship in the past, their partner died, and now they just aren’t ready or interested in trying to find a physical or romantic relationship or other special person like that again.
of course, there are so many other stories one could tell about a character who doesn’t pursue a romance. that’s just the one i’m typically drawn to. i’m curious, sometimes, about how - and if - other people have headcanoned their main characters who don’t romance.
who are they and what are their stories?

false mustaches! yes!
if i had a PC for gaming, EVERYONE in Mass Effect and Dragon Age would be modded to have a mustache just like that. but only for the cut scenes. that way, i would forget all about them during combat and while wandering around the citadel or through kirkwall. and then - every time a cut scene came along - i would laugh out loud and possibly tinkle myself a little. because i am juvenile. and false mustaches are sometimes all it takes.
edit: that said, i have no real opinion on the spelling of alenko’s first name. doesn’t even bioware spell it both ways sometimes?
second round edit: and, on principle, i’m totally against throwing anyone out of an airlock for spelling mistakes. though i’m still not convinced there are, in fact, any mistakes in whichever way one chooses to spell the above dude’s name. i’ve now checked and i see for sure that bioware totally does use both.

yay! it’s the small things that make me feel proud of myself. like the fact that i can be good at shooting stuff in video games if i want to put the time and energy into it.
i will say, however, that beating mass effect 3 on hard core with most weapons still at level 1 is a little more challenging than beating it on insanity with all weapons maxed at 5.
a great start to my day off. time go do stuff in the world, like eat food and drink tea.

OMG. Yes. First there was Oriana and then another Oriana. And then an Orana… I’m often confused anyway, though, just as a baseline state of being.
And I’ve gotten confused when trying to remember Shiala or Shianni and Arianni or Shianni. That said, yes, my examples are all minor characters to a greater or lesser degree.
Derp accidentaly deleted my post.
Finally finished this quickie!
Oh my gadorable! Rinna and Delia Shepard are both ready and willing to sign up for a couple of these.
EDIT: and, in case the universe is listening, can I please have a krogan stuffed animal? why aren’t they selling them in stores? i am a grown-ass woman who still snuggles with stuffed animals at night. and i’d really like a krogan. is that too much to ask for?

now where can i find me some Love Notes From Liara?
because, really, that’s all i need at this point for true satisfaction to be achieved. but then i might have to change the title of my tumblr…
Well, I suppose I did just write your name in the stars.
After ME3, no question about it. Garrus = my Shepards’ BFF.
And *shhh* don’t tell Liara, but secretly, I’m a little bit jealous of the Garrusmancers. From the outside looking in, the whole Garrus romance experience seems to be making a whole lot of Shepards and fans really happy.
But… I just don’t get it. And I probably never will.
Ah, well, different strokes.
