“I never saw the appeal of the FemShep/Joker ship. He seemed defined by his illness in the first game. His insubordination got Shepard killed at the beginning of ME2.”
His insubordination? You mean his loyalty to Shepard and the ship and not wanting to give up no matter what?
I never really wanted it too hard because I figured Bioware would ruin him.
And I was right because look at him and EDI. I just, they waited too long by ME3 that I thought it wouldn’t work that well. But in comment to insubordination- that’s bull. He was fighting to save the ship. The one place he belonged. Joker had spent forever coddled because of his disease and defined by it but on the Normandy it didn’t matter. It was his home and the crew was his family. He’s a soldier and by right he shouldn’t of gotten emotional but he did and he’s human so I can forgive him (now, Bioware, because they never let us bring it up besides a mention in ME3? Not as much).
Also, it’s Commander Fucking Shepard. I’m pretty sure he (like everybody else) thought s/he was indestructible and completely invulnerable to death. Didn’t even think s/he’d ever die from anything less than old age no matter what the galaxy threw at him/her. (Wow, messed up that last sentence bad. Edited to make it better.)
