Yeah. Okay sure why not.
I would see the futures they create. Not upon the bodies of the dead but forged from hopes and old possibilities renewed in the trust of the living.
It’s crazy. The Geth are…helping. Setting up housing, adapting power systems. They’re doing in weeks what would have taken us years. Geth are even uploading into the suits of quarian volunteers. They’re rewriting environmental functions, jump-starting our immune systems
Today, on Rannoch, there are quarian children who will grow up healthy and strong, thanks to the geth.
The people who are really angry at Garrus and Tali getting together in Mass Effect 3 really odd me out. The dialogue only happens if you don’t romance them. The level of possessiveness -to say “Even though I am not dating you, but you must not date anyone, YOU ARE MINE”- about videogame characters is just weird.
Is your character’s pretend happiness really more important than Garrus and Tali’s pretend happiness?
AAAAA GARRUS AND TALI HOLDING HANDS AAAAAA!
AAAAAA NOW THEY’RE BOTH PLAYED BY LUCY LIU AAAAAAA!
Edit 2: Someone who reblogged this said they were only upset because they would have romanced Garrus, except he wasn’t an option for M!Shep. That is a legitimate reason to be put out. This “WAAAH GARRUS BROKE THE BRO-CODE!” business is not. You are not entitled to any person or persons, and “they entered into a relationship without my consent” is a terrifically insubstantial, insecure reason to stop liking someone.
Saying anything about this would ruin it. Set during Mass Effect 2

tinyfierce said: So, the Turtle Garrus confession was me (totally rewatched Ninja Turtles after hitting the ‘submit’ button) and down in the comments is an adorable little sketch of Garrus being a turtle. What brilliant mind did this miraculousness come from?
IS THERE MORE? DO WE KNOW, FOLLOWERS?????
Yes, I am a girl.
Yes, I have too much time on my hands.

Karish De’Lan’s reimagining of beloved Human tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, premiered at number one this weekend, with teeming crowds -a diverse mixture of mostly-teenaged girls- showing up in droves to theaters across the galaxy. The love story, starring Turian starlet Lexaria Novarn opposite Human heartthrob Aureliano Chavez, sets the classic love story on the Citadel amid the political upheaval in the aftermath of Relay Incident 314.
Young lovers Romeo (Chavez) and Juliet (Novarn) are caught between species loyalty and true love when they meet at a party hosted by Juliet’s family, the fantastically wealthy Capulets. The couple goes to fantastic lengths to be together after Romeo is exiled for the murder of Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt (played by up-and-comer Sharris Maliwen).
Despite baffling directorial choices (the dialogue was not changed from its original Elizabethan English [a 16th century Human dialect] and is presented with Galatic Standard subtitles, and even Human audiences will have a difficult time understanding Novarn’s incomprehensible accent) and a production fraught with drama (payroll squabbles, boycott vows from the Terra Firma party, tabloid rumors of an interspecies love triangle between Novarn, Maliwen, and Chavez), the movie is ultimately a success.
The obvious chemistry between Novarn and Chavez breathes life into the whirlwind romance, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the theater during the heartbreaking climax. The imaginative filmography and dazzling costumes are sure to garner attention during awards season, even if the stellar performances of the leads hadn’t already cemented Romeo and Juliet’s place among this year’s great films.
Cynics are calling the film’s release a shameless attempt to capitalize on the current xenophilia craze sparked by the widely publicized romance between former C-Sec operative Garrus Vakarian and Human Spectre Jane Shepard.
De’Lan denies the rumors, claiming the movie was “in the works for two years before anyone had even heard of ‘Shakarian.’” This and other digs at the famous couple in interviews should be enough to quell rumors of his motives, but some are saying the notoriously prickly Volus’ comments are a simple dodge.
“Skeptically: Two weeks after Aliens Magazine and The Galatic Sun print pictures of Shakarian (and what kind of couple name is that?) Romeo and Juliet is greenlit? Cattily: If you don’t see the connection, you’re blinder than Shepard’s stylist (does the Human own more than one set of clothing?)” writes Elcor pop culture blogger Zaleen.
Even if the movie’s production schedule does coincide neatly with the life and times of one Commander Shepard, it still stands as a triumph of modern cinematography. This can’t-miss blockbuster is garnering accolades from critics across the galaxy, and tickets are selling out as soon as they go on sale.
“I love Romeo and Juliet so much,” said Asari maiden and ardent Lexaria Chavez fan, Taria Llepin. “It’s such a romantic love story. I’ve already seen it four times. I want a love as pure as Romeo and Juliet’s!”
((I got this weird idea for Romeo and Juliet starring a Turian and a Human during my walk home, and this fake news story practically wrote itself. What is this, even? Fan Non-Fiction?))
In many human cultures, the color red is associated with emotion, power, strength, and anger. Humans are hardwired to view red and the people wearing it as more powerful and sexually desirable. Blood and fire are both red, and they lend their associated characteristics to the color. In media, characters with significant amounts of red in their designs usually share some characteristics with the color.
Turian blood is blue, as is Garrus’ armor. Blue is usually thought of as being a calm and levelheaded color, and Garrus is very much not levelheaded. He’s impulsive and headstrong, characteristics which, by his own admission, make him bad at being a Turian. But blue owes its associations with tranquility to its oppositeness to red, which takes its associations from blood.
So if Turian blood is blue, maybe blue, within Turian culture, carries the same associations that red does within human culture. If that is the case, Garrus’ blue armor marks him as emotional, stubborn, and potentially rebellious. He’s wearing the color most associated with his personality, but those associations are different within his species.
Should Nora Shepard cheat on Liara with Garrus?
EDIT: Space Cadet friend just randomly posted the following status on Facebook: “I really cant grasp in my mind why people cheat…if you have someone who genuinely likes you for you and wants to spend time with you and cares….why would one want to mess that up ? #foolish”
It’s a sign.
I’m a one space-alien kind of a gal, anyway.
I haven’t even played Mass Effect, but I ship F!Shep/Garrus so hard, and this is their song.
What the hell am I doing, I have a paper to write.
