I just can’t comprehend why Bioware would make Thane the only romantic LI and then proceed to kill him off almost immediately after his appearance. Sihas aren’t upset that Thane dies. No, we understood it was going to happen regardless of what our Shepards did. What we’re pissed off about is how poorly Thane as a character was handled.
This. I feel some people think a lot of the Siha’s are upset that Thane died. Which, at least, isn’t my case. It’s that he was barely even a foot note in game. It’s that Bioware admits they did a poor job with him. He was made to be a romance option and I just cannot fathom how they did this to him. I mean, compared to some other ships he has at least a quieter fandom, if not smaller, I think (though, if that’s the case, we’ve gotten much louder after ME3).
As a fangirl I would not have complained if we were given a way for him to survive. Some transplant or something (relatively reasonable, I admit, I would need). I’d have even not complained if he wasn’t allowed on the ship (though, honestly, I wish he was). I just wanted more of him- even if he died still. Act like you care Bioware. Give us a little bit more conversation or time with him. Real dialogue for the Siha’s that fell in love with this character.
And, I admit, I would have wanted to kiss Bioware if the ending actually had Shepard walking with Thane on a beach (or, sitting at a bar and smiling to Garrus. Or whatever, you know. Something sappy to take away the shock, denial, and hurt of the ending).
“I think you could fall in love with anyone if you saw the parts of them that no one else gets to see. Like if you followed them around invisibly for a day and you saw them crying in their bed at night or singing to themselves as they make a sandwich or even just walking along the street and even if they were really weird and had no friends at school, I think after seeing them at their most vulnerable you wouldn’t be able to help falling in love with them. ”—(via midwest-monster)
Hey, beautiful! I don't know how things are for you, but they'll get better. I know it's cliche, but they will. Eventually whatever pain you have will be strength and when you look back you'll realized you lived through it. I just wanted you to know that there are people who really care about you, myself included. I wish I could teleport and give you a hug, I would. You deserve to be hugged and to be happy. Be well ^_^
Thank you so much. I am working through the problem. School and finals happening the same time isn’t helping. But it really does help to know that people care. Your hug, and the sentiments with it, are so welcome. You are wonderful, anon. You really are.
I don’t know how it happened or where I learned it- but I am a master at repressing emotions. I am a master at repressing anything that’s bothering me, putting on a calm face, and continuing on like there is no problem. Some of the time, it’s so bad that I don’t know what is bothering me. But my eczema will break out, I’ll get headaches, and my mood will plummet until I’m in a slump. But I won’t know what’s wrong because I refuse to acknowledge it. I refuse to acknowledge I’m stressing over a test or money problems.
Or, like now. I won’t cry. I probably should. I probably need to. But instead I’ll just sit in front of my computer, pretending there isn’t a problem.
I’ve just realized that Joker’s real name is Jeff…so he’s Jeffrey…this is really stupid but I really really really want Shepard to call him “Jeffrey” just because it would sound so posh and ridiculous :3
Shepard: Jeffrey darling how goes piloting the ship?
Joker: Everything’s in tip-top shape, Commander! Wait…the fuck are we doing?
Magenta: Something I barely tell anyone. I don’t really tell a lot of people that I’m a writer actually. It’s not because I’m not proud of what I write- excluding some of the smut- it’s just that a lot of people I know face to face aren’t interested in that, and plenty of people online as well. And so it just doesn’t come up. And since I’ve yet to finish my original story I don’t have anything to brag about.
Lilac: My dream vacation would be anywhere out of the state at this point. I’ve very rarely left my hometown sadly. Dream vacation however- I’d love to see Scotland actually (though I have a dream list in my notebook).
