If you think Shepard is behaving like a jerk, you are right! Because we all can be jerks sometimes...

I’ve been reading many fanfics for almost a year, so if anyone spots something familiar, do tell me and I’ll be delighted to quote the author+fic that inspired it ;)

yes and if you go in the mission Citadel Archives with Garrus and Liara you also have a very funny reply, from him, when they are locked in the vault.I really hope to see or read new stories about citadel dlc, was awesome and can be developed in a such funny and nasty adventure. For example will be funny to watch a poker game with Garrus, Tali, James and Shepard :D They are all involved in a kind of renegade flirting around ship: James versus Garrus, Tali versus Shepard. This reminds me what happens in main battery after cerberus headquarters, what dreams has Tali at the party(relaxed one), when she is drunk in the bathroom, or James doubts about turians.:)) This tango in 4 will be very funny to be described. And in the end, maybe Tali find "Muscles" attractive and James find a way to see what is behind helmet of "Sparks" :D From Bioware we can't expect nothing as i heard..they will kill all our team mates:( ,it does no matter if my Shep survived with Destroy and war assets :(

Oh, so they also have a funny dialogue there? I've only played once with Garrus and Wrex and... I laughed so hard... I haven't checked fanfiction.net in a while, so maybe there some fics dealing with the Citadel DLC.
That poker scene takes place?? :confused: I must play that DLC again!
Wait, who kills our mates? They are alive in the EC...

caryara Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
no, they do not play poker..on the poker table(in the relaxing party) are Liara versus James, after a while, Kasumi will join them and also is Javik watching them. Is a pity that are not Tali,James, Shep and Garrus. I said Bioware will kill our squad mates because, the next game, mass effect 4, will be a whole new game: [link] and will be ready in 2 years.

"Previous Observations"...really, Mordin? You mad scientists are so wierd...and so awesome...how can anyone not like Mordin Solus, the most badass scientist in the entire Mass Effect series?

I don't even like Science Fiction, yet Mass Effect succeeded where Star Wars and Star Trek failed...I will never fall out of love with the Mass Effect series. It's incredible characters are what really makes it one of the greatest game series of all time.

And you are one of the best fan-comic writers I've ever seen for this series.
Although I have to say, my absolute favorite fanmade comic series for Mass Effect is Padzi's.

Here's the link if you want to take a look at it:

Best ME Original Characters EVER. I promise you, you will NEVER forget the Turian known as Prakish once you've read this ongoing series...

Of course! Who could not love Mordin? Who?? He's a mad scientist, but not in the same way as Saleon was. He has morals! And the moment he starts singing is so... so... amazing!

I'm a fan of medieval fantasy. I love it. Sci-fi is nice, I liked Star Trek and Star Wars but ME is the one for me. When a friend told me to play this game I had jus finished DAO and I was like "meh... but it's a shooter... in space... meh". And look at me: drawing fanart non-stop! And I agree with you: it's the characters which catch you, they are very well written, never leave their character.Amazing job here Bioware.

Thanks a lot! It seems that your comments are going to keep the blush in my cheeks! I know Padzi's work, she's awesome and the story she's building has no match. Now I want to re-read it again... but I have to go to work!! :(

"Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong."

He didn't even goddamn hesitate when he made his decision to go up into and die at the uppermost level of the Shroud.
And you know what? I think it is the right decision. Some would sacrifice the entire Krogan race just to let this one Salarian live. I don't think that's what he would have wanted.

How could an eccentric, fast-talking former-special forces, doctor/scientist bring out so much emotion from the game-player in his final scenes on Tuchanka?
Why can't all doctors be like Mordin Solus? That Dalatrass dosen't understand at all. She never actually saw the plight of the Krogan or took the time to learn more about them. People like her are what's holding back the progress of galactic life.

"Scientist Salarian", an instant classic that never gets old no matter how many times it is sung.
Shepard seems to treat Mordin alright, although also keeps her distance from him.
I wonder how she's going to react when Mordin offers her advice on...urm...intimate relations with Turians, considering that she already slept with Garrus once thus far.
Also, considering that the Krogan genophage is a VERY important part of the overall Mass Effect storyline, I am curious to see how you'll handle it in your comic series and how Shepard will regard it and tackle it.
You've established that she is friends with Wrex and misses him (can't wait for their reunion on Tuchanka), so she must have conversed with him about it.
I have faith in your ability to make the relationship and dynamic between Mordin Solus and Aryen Shepard a good one.

Just to throw this in: I'm not a fan of Science Fiction and also not a fan of Fantasy.
I enjoyed Lord of The Rings (read the entire book AND watched all three Extended versions of the films) and call it probably the greatest movie trilogy of the past decade (2000-2010), although I have to say I liked the Pirates of the Carribean trilogy more.
I've read the entire Harry Potter book series. Will say it is wonderful and well-written, but not a big fan of it. I refused to watch the rest of the films after seeing the first, second and third ones.

There is only series in the entire Fantasy genre, whether visual like TV or movie or written like comic or book, that I am a huge fan of (like Spoony, I collect Fantasy gamebooks like Lone Wolf or Fighting Fantasy, but I'm not a big fan of both).
One of my DA Journal entries is all about my experience of it.
Terry Pratchett is one of a kind.

I seriously wanted to know where his observations came from. He was not one of the main members of my squad (Garrus was) and despite that, he notices Shepard's attraction towards Garrus.
How can Bioware create such incredible characters??

That is so correct. I can be a jerk right now, probably was yesterday because my time of the month is coming lol. Although arguing can be healthy parts of relationships, physical abuse not so much though I wonder why that thought appeared in my head hum

Hahaha... Don't worry, that happens to all of us (women), with different degrees of jerk-ness...
I agree with you: it's not bad that couples argue from time to time, because if one of the part becomes an extention of the other... for me that's not healthy. But violence doesn't need to be involved. You can argue in a polite and educated way.

It was my little revenge on all those moments my Shepard visited Garrus in the Main Battery and got dismissed with the calibrations line!

Exactly. And she's also noticing something that you have already read in the next pages ;)
