I just wanted to say (now that I’ve beaten ME3 a while back) thank you for answering my ask about it all those months ago! And also I think you had something you wanted to say about how they handled Thane but couldn’t say it at the time due to spoilers. Still want to say it? Because I wish I could talk about ME3 with more people…
Yes, I was glad to! And I still pretty much stand by what I said back then. (This
was the answer I gave, if anyone’s curious)
AND I DO WANT TO SAY IT but so many other people have put it a lot more succinctly than I have! I’ve been seeing some really
awesome discussions about the way they handled Thane’s character on my dash for the past few months—talldarkbishoujo
, and goddessofcheese
all come to mind—and the longer it’s been since the end, the more I am really seriously unimpressed!
(Putting this under a cut because I know for a fact that there’s people playing through ME3 right now; HOPE YOU’RE HAVIN’ FUN, SLIMM)
Basically me for a week
(for a lot more reasons than just Thane but he’s sort of become the poster boy for them; y u do this, man)
Cheese: hanging around the Citadel
Cheese: showing him the sights
Cheese: trying food and realizing he likes some of it
Cheese: I imagine food was somethign that was generally nutrient-high but not flavorful in his time; the least time to prepare and easiest to carry around would be preferable
Cheese: the idea of *enjoying* a meal outside of "hey I got to eat and I didn't get shot at, win win" might be alien to him
Bali: ...his version of the Citadel date
Bali: oh my god
Bali: that would be hilarious
Bali: they end up getting followed by a small crowd of hanar
Cheese: lol OH GOD
Bali: "Commander, is it normal for others to gather when you're trying to eat?"
Bali: "THIS ONE IS NOT WORTHY"
Bali: "NEITHER IS THIS ONE"
Bali: "...I think that's all on you, Javik."
Cheese: "What are the purpose of the... what did you call these multi-colored pellets."
Cheese: "Yes. What purpose do they serve?"
Cheese: "None. They just taste good. Look nice."
Cheese: "*stares* They look like insects."
Cheese: "This must be the influence of the salarians. I'm sure of it."
Bali: "Actually, that's...a human thing."
Bali: ".............*deadpan stare*"
Cheese: ice cream would blow his damn mind
Bali: "Why does it tingle in my mouth! And it's cold!"
Bali: "Well, it's mint..."
Cheese: later, on the Normandy
Cheese: Traynor: Commander, care to explain why I have a request from Javik for ten pints of mint chocolate chip?
Cheese: Shep: Just... just don't ask.
Headcanon feels are the worst feels right now
And I can’t stop sketching
(I blame Cheese because most of these ideas are hers)
(sketches + thoughts under the cut)
I have a lot of feels to express about this and the game in general, specifically in context of this image, but uploading photos doesn’t allow for a read more (which is needed, as I’d be approaching extremely-heavy-spoiler territory)—
So I will do that in a later post poooossibly.
