Jane's List for Garrus
1. Please don't sharpen your talons on the furniture. I've provided a special post for this in the room behind the laundry where you put your weights and gym equipment.
2. I love sushi too, but I prefer it dead before I eat it. I know you love to fish but please don't do this in front of me again. I nearly fainted and you know I've seen some grisly things.
3. I don't need to hear again how your mom use to deep fry things that look like my hamster, and serve them as appetizers.
4. Please don't use my knitting yarn as dental floss. I sent to Palaven for a new supply for you. It will be here in a few days.
5. I get it that casting is a family activity for Turians, but humans are just not with that hairball kind of thing. I love you dearly, but there are some things I can't do with you, so please regurgitate that stuff in private.
Garrus' List for Jane
1. If you find the seat up, leave it up. I live here too. Will double the size of the master
ME High!Oh yes, I haven't forgotten I swear! In fact, I just sat down and wrote the ENTIRE cast (mostly by order of appearance in games as to not confuse the shit out of myself....mostly. Some changes had to be made obviously, but yea for the most part smashed everything in there) I know technically its not EVERYONE in game, but if I did that I might have to go and kill myself. Obviously some people will be excluded, ignored or pushed aside because they wouldn't fit. OR because they didn't have that much of an impact on the game, I know Harbinger and Soverign had huge impacts on the game...But where the hell are giant ass Reapers going to fit into a high school setting? Lol for the most part it'll focus on the main characters of Fem and Bro Shep and their interactions with the ME1 and ME2 characters with lots of ME3 sprinkled in there.ME High!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:

February PromptAh, the month of love has come and it is time to give special notice to the romance of Kaidan Alenko. As you might expect this prompt to be something of the sappy, romantic, “twue love” (had to borrow from Princess Bride, sorry) connotation, let’s not forget what comes on the other side of true love. Regret, longing, the should have’s, could have’s, what if’s of love. Love never runs an easy course and it has been proven when you romance Kaidan, that it has indeed been a bumpy journey.February Prompt2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In that vein, BloodBandit has gone down this route as a prompt for February. Instead of giving a month for this prompt, this will run two weeks. Since voting took so long, partly my fault for not getting to it in a timely manner, but I would like then start the next month’s prompt on time.

“For me, suspense doesn’t have any value if it’s not balanced by humor.”
For as long as I can remember, I’ve found a great deal of joy in the horror genre. As a child, I loved to scare my siblings, donning Halloween masks and jumping out from behind doors with a scream. I would chase my younger sister around pretending to be a zombie coming for her brains and I loved the way she would run, literally screaming, from the room. In retrospect, it was pretty cruel, but we both laugh about it now (and are both fans of horror movies, though she not as much as I).
As I grew up, I still loved to scare people and began to delve into special effects, though unintentionally at first. One of my earliest “horror jokes” involved a candy gum that was called “Tongue Splashers” (http://cf.mp-cdn.net/aa/71/48ec4136a36abefe70d864224a13.jpg). This

Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut is Now AvailableSpoilers....Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut is Now Available3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The extended cut of Mass Effect 3 did more than just add a slideshow (although there actually was one at one point). BioWare has given players a new ending as well. Shepard can now tell the star child to go to hell and refuse to make a decision.
Here are all "4" endings, in case you don't want to waste your time playing the final 2 missions again.

Bioware: "Don't call it Mass Effect 4"In a move meant either to start out early distinguishing between the Shepard Trilogy and whatever BW have planned next, or just because they didn't like how simple it was to refer to it as "ME4", Chris Priestly, long runing Bioware Community Manager, said in a forum statement:Bioware: "Don't call it Mass Effect 4"2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"To call the next game Mass Effect 4 or ME4 is doing it a disservice and seems to cause a lot of confusion here. We have already said that the Commander Shepard trilogy is over and that the next game will not feature him/her. That is the only detail you have on the game.
"I see people saying 'well, they'll have to pick a canon ending'. No, because the game does not have to come after. Or before. Or off to the side. Or with characters you know. Or yaddayaddayadda. Wherever, whenever, whoever, etc will all be revealed years down the road when we actually start talking about it.

Mass Effect: The End of an Era (SPOILERS)SPOILERS!!!Mass Effect: The End of an Era (SPOILERS)3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So this is the end of Mass Effect. Not just of the last game, but of the trilogy as a whole. Right now, I am of two minds. I am not wholly satisfied with the so called Extended Cut but at the same time it has some redeeming qualities to it that I can not, in good conscience, ignore:
It provides closure: For those who wanted to see what happened to the characters they came to love and the galaxy as a whole.
Injected some measure of reasoning to the actions/words of the God Child: They showed more of the logic behind the Reapers actions and how the Catalyst works.
There is something for everyone: The endings appear to be based on fan input/outcry.
The filled in some of the plot holes and contradictions: Not all of them, but by lessing the impact of the Catalyst, it showed that the damage was reversible.
It brings back some elements of classic science fiction.
Yet, two facts remain. One, the underlying logic behind the God Child is still flawed, although the designers lampsahe

Alright guys, this Collab is now set in motion.
Your mission is to doll one of your OC's without a shirt on. Nudity is totally permitted and encouraged, but if you'd rather have something covering the boobies to make it more demure, feel free. Male and female characters are both allowed, and if you'd like help converting the base male just ask for help. I'd be happy to help.

What James Vega hatin' says about youThere are many factors that make a particular character resonate with a particular type of person. I find it fascinating when a character, especially one that gets so little actual story time in the Mass Effect games like James Vega, inspires such vitriol in an engaged audience. Everywhere his story is discussed, someone posts a nasty comment that they hate him or call him names.What James Vega hatin' says about you3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I'm not arguing that the game creators didn't drop the ball on his story. He could have been much more interesting. But the qualities that Vega's fans see in him don't go skin-deep. Even his physical appearance hints at a hidden depth, which almost always affects other areas of life and character development. This is the reason why I started writing the James Vega origins story, The One That Got Away, to show how these shallow elements, hinted at in the game and the boring Homeworlds comic, could have been made into a really interesting story and likeable character.
The Leviathan and the Death of HopeWarning: contains spoilers concerning the Leviathan DLC, Mass Effect 3 and my notions about what good writing is. Duh.The Leviathan and the Death of Hope3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are moments when I wish I could just turn off my writer's sense at a whim and "just go with it". Ignore that a story in a game, or a movie, or a book, or a TV show is flawed in my opinion, just to enjoy the views, get an adrenaline rush from all the flashing colors and have fun. And truth be told - it usually works that way... Just not for the universes I tend to care about. If you got me invested in your franchise, I will expect you to deliver the goods. 'Tis how the cookie crumbles.
Which brings me to the Leviathan DLC. I've seen a lot of positive reviews and emotions towards it popping up all over the internet before I was even able to check it out myself. My hopes were high, and, initially, I loved it. It had a sense of exploration Mass Effect 3 was seriously lacking and the TGES Mining Base really reminded me of Noveria... It was spot on.
