Warning Spoilers!!

So yeah, I actually teared up a little at this part, so I thought it would be great to make fun of my geekdom.

Yes, I remained loyal to Kaidan! He is awesome even though he is being a bit of a bitch! Still, I can't believe there is so many Kaidan haters out there, shame on you!

I swear to god, there had better be a BIG pay off of those of us to remain loyal to our Mass Effect 1 love interests in Mass Effect 3! I'm talking an epic reunion! Cheesy love scenes! And my Shepard better be preggers or something at the end of Mass Effect 3!

I UNDERSTAND YOU KAKDAN, <3 <3 <3 <3.
It was jerky, but you know what, I get It.

For some reason, the last two panels of your picture actually remind me of my ex, who got pissed off at me for having romances in Mass Effect and Dragon Age! I never bothered about her drooling over male celebrities or whatever, but for some reason, virtual flirtation with a programmed character (Not even a human female, usually an elf or an alien) in a video-game was borderline infidelity to her.

She sounds like she was taking things a little overboard. But the punchline isn't that my roommate was mad at me for romancing a video game character. He is a huge Kaidan Alenko fan. When he walked in to see Kaidan angry at my Shepard, he was upset at me for breaking Kaidan's heart. Obliviously I over exaggerated his reaction for comedic affect.

Oh don't worry, I get it, it's just seeing someone get pissed off at someone else playing Mass Effect just brought back the memories for me :-)

Oh my gosh same here! And even though he was a total dick to me on Horizon, I stayed true to him too! Damn, exactly how I felt! I was so mad! Ugh! Yes.

We have a name for that: "verbally abusive relationship" it is why none of my femshep a have stayed with Kaidan if they even romanced him at all (only did it 3-4 times...). Why would they stay with someone who insults them, their decisions, their loyalties, and doesn't trust them? Garrus FTW!

Yeah, I romanced and stayed with Kaidan my first time through, because I didn't know what I was doing. But looking back, I'm realizing that he's a good person, but an a$$ in his own right. :/ But I totally fell in love with Garrus. For sure. He never questioned. That's what I love about him. No matter where Shepard went, he always had my back!!

I know what my first thought was after meeting Kaidan was "Shepard, you were dead, and all you can say is, 'Its been a while'?" At that point I didn't talk to anyone other then Tali and Garrus and Chakwas on the Normandy because I trusted TIM and the crew even less after this.

Sadly the only thing we faithful ones get is that he doesn't mention cheating at the lunch date. -.-

And a clean consciousness, Darnit!! Kaidan may have been a jerk in his anger then, but god, Jesus, I loved him. Any relationship I may had had in the second Mass Effect would have been a lie. Thane appealed to me so much, and I was so going to do it, but then with the flirting option I realized my Shep wouldn't say that, and really, it was Kaidan I missed and the conversations with him. And Thane just seemed so level headed, kind of like I thought Kaidan to be, but lacked a lot of the passion he had. Thane was a man resigned, on the brink of death, whatever I may be able to have with him, it was not going to last.
I would be any chances of being with him on the next game, if there was, because I myself don't believe in relationship history interrupted by another person but continuing on.
Sure, it wouldn't be betrayal, not really and Kaidan was being silly, but you what?  I would always stay faithful.

And no, Garrus, just no. And not for being a Turian, but his personality only appealed to me as a VERY GOOD FRIEND. I never really considered it, and when the reach and flexibility conversation came, I tried to be as uninterested and unfairly as possible. I actually don't get how people initially attracted to Kaidan, could be to Garrus. And I just keep thinking that it must be the bitter feeling that let them to it, not actual romance.
As for those who chose Kaidan because he was the only male love interest available in ME1, well, those... were being cruel, because sure Kaidan liked you, but if you don't, YOU DON'T! :(

At least, I think the best way to play Mass Effect, is playing as if the characters were real people.

I can't tell, do you think I am bashing Kaidan for Horizon?
Vanessalisa's avatar
For Me I understand him bit there's no need to yell

I'm not yelling. I'm just very confused by your comment. If you think I'm bashing him you are gravely mistaken. Have you not seen the rest of my gallery? I'm a big Kaidan fan, you can tell by the metric shit ton of Kaidan and Shenko art. This comic was done to show my reaction the first time I played through Horizon. I very much get why he is pissed off at Shepard. I think you are trying to pick a fight that isn't there.

No I was talking about kaiden not you

Kitty2998's avatar
i hated that part i asked all the time were kadian was and then he yelled at me and i didnt know if i should punch him or cry.

So true! My favorite fan-girl quote about this is: "I don't blame Kaidan for what happened on Horizon, I blame the person that wrote his script!"

I'm one of those weird people who liked Horizon. I think the dialogue could have been a lot better but I like that Kaidan doesn't agree with Shepard. Its nice to find a character who calls the main character on some of things s/he does. It still broke my heart to pieces. :tears:

I felt the exact same way...

I love Kaidan too, can never stay mad at him.

See, that's why I prefer Liara. No yelling or anything. Although she DID make out with me in front of Tali when we were reunited...
