Bekah sent this prompt and I decided to dabble back into Mass Effect and Shrios. I have a horrible fascination with a Shepard that is really being broken down and just so tired by ME3 and how Thane pushing her away and the fight would make her feel especially. The comfort and safe haven something she would maybe need and then expecting it when she gets the email only for the conversation every Thanemancer dreads. The song referenced more probably the subtle context of what their argument was. But I decided to focus much more on the conclusion.
Just some Shrios. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t lost my writing mojo half way through this. I feel like I’d like so many more of these drabbles if I wasn’t in the mood of thinking anything I write as of late is complete crap (which isn’t good because I’m going to have to get to writing essays soon for school and those are important).
So I don’t remember if Samara let’s you take a gun with you to go talk to Morinth. But I decided, thinking about it, that it makes more sense for Shepard to be packing. Nothing like the Widow or Cain. But a good solid gun (especially if Shep doesn’t have biotics). I mean they’re on Omega of all places. And if Shep’s allure is to be a dangerous killer then there should be a gun I’d think. Might be a headcanon tho, I don’t remember like I said.
I hated this prompt. I felt it was sort of poor/unimaginative, and generally I just dislike anger as a whole. I tried to think of something fun for it anyway, but it’s been 4 days. So you get something bland instead.
So I love Shakarian almost as much as I love Shrios (which wouldn’t be true if Thane wasn’t fucked over and Garrus wasn’t given the perfect romance path in ME3). And Garrus is so important to Shep (most Sheps, I won’t say all of them, but to all my Sheps) that I couldn’t not write something about him and my Shep.
So I’m not a huge shipper of James/Kasumi but I love both characters and I have no doubt that Kasumi would appreciate some of James assets. And their flirting would be hilarious, sexy, and wonderful. Also Kasumi deserves love because Shep can’t romance her and Jacob becomes a giant bag of dicks in ME3. So I decided to do something with them (and sort of bend canon a bit).
So I’m still working out my own head canon for ME3 and the way I think it could have gone (not just Thane but the whole clusterfuck of the game more or less). So while I hate how Kaidan was handled in ME3 and would totally change all of it if I had the chance, I’m generally following the game here.
