Out of the blue my muse rushed back to me while I listened to Hurricane by 30 Seconds to Mars.
For some reason that song brought me back to Horizon, even after months of not touching Mass Effect in any shape or form. The song suited both my mood as the image slowly appearing on my screen.
As always I kept playing it over and over again until the image was finished, just because it gave the right 'mood'. I would suggest following the link to Youtube and listening to it while viewing the image
I really had no intention of revisiting Horizon at all. After getting a few upgrades for my pc, including a big, new, shiny HD and transferring all my images from my backup, I just kept browsing through all finished stuff and materials waiting to be worked with.
The original pic I wanted to do had nothing to do with Horizon but again, I blame the music for messing up my muse
For me this picture just sums up Horizon. I wanted a reflection of the emotion I feel when thinking back to that place. I will ignore the robotic Shepard given ingame and see what I want to see. She is my Shepard after all and she IS hurt, almost defeated by the blow.
Please...come back to me.
Please...I need you.
Please......I love you.
Gosh I hate Horizon and yet part of me is touched by it as well. For what it does to me as a player. Despite the anger at the generalized scene we're given, despite the crap dialogue options. Despite all that, it still pushes some buttons.
Now give me ME3 so I can get some closure!
