ME3: 'Starlight' by OrbitalWings ME3: 'Starlight' by OrbitalWings
Welp, this took a lot longer than planned. But in my defence, I've been busy with all sorts of other things lately, hence my silence over the past few weeks. Hopefully normal service will resume now.

....famous last words, right?

Anyhoo, as for the pairing in this pic - if anyone wants to read a little something featuring these two, I actually wrote a short fic which can be found here

And if you want to reblog it on Tumblr, you can do so from here

Must suck to be a machine though, she can't actually feel, right?  Still an amazing work here.

I really like how you turned EDI into a more human character. she's wearing a uniform, saying that she considers herself a crew member and assumingly so does everyone else. also this may not be what you were trying to portray, but i see it as EDI deciding to read to sam from a datapad instead of from her memory banks, again making her more human. while a side feature, this definitely makes this scene that much better. love it.

Is that Shepard or trainer. Sorry I don't know how to spell her name. Either way it looks good. And I agree. Edi does look good in that uniform. It makes her look like she belongs you know what I meen?

Alright, I've read both the fanfiction and seen this pic. I must now write fanfiction myself.

...Damn it. I will never finish my other stuff, will I? Oh well...

Great work here. I love it, especially EDI's normal clothing. Great job.

I just hate this pairing. To me, it seems to be perverse (and it makes EDI look like a sex-bot) :(

Then why did you even bother to comment if you weren't going to add at least some concrit? Or better yet, why did you even feel the need to look at this in the first place if it's something you find repulsive? The 'Back' and 'X' buttons on your browser exist for a reason, you know.

Perverse is not a meaningful word. It's a negative connotation on sexual, but what's perverse changes from place to place and year to year. The reality is that the only objective way to define perverse, is to define it as having an unwilling party. 

EDI has a cannon pairing, and if this is perverse, so is EDI with Joker. If you are bothered by the idea of dating a robot in general, then you have a problem with EDI, and it's strange that you would follow ME at all. I mean, EDI's more Human than a Krogan, Turian, or Hanar. 

At the end of the day, it's just bigotry toward a fantasy sexual orientation. Take it elsewhere.

This pairing makes sense. Truth be told, it gets more allusion to it than the canon pairing. (BioWare's been doing that lately. I see a very clear allusion to Bethany and Isabela if Hawke is a non-mage and Bela isn't romanced, yet the canon spare-pairing is... Bela and ... FENRIS. I don't get it.)

Either of them are a very strange type of 'mixed', though... mixed-emotional-state. (To a greater degree than my Asperger's-lite self with 'normal' humans, too, because EDI doesn't have _human_ emotions, does she? It seems established that she's going by something entirely different... which oddly enough is my default status, "I want to make people happy, particularly those I care about". How I go about it... is very much trial and error. This could be relevant to EDI, as well.)

Sometimes when I complement someone, the words don't feel like enough...this is definitely a time like that, when I say your work is beautiful! Samantha looks angelic, and EDI's flat-out amazing...and wearing a Navy short-sleeve uni? She looks great! The pure mood of the scene is perfect. This image embodies science fiction in so many ways, and yes, it's sexy as hell! :love:

*Rushing to read your fic!*

I thank you in the name of all people with my attitude! :nod: You have given the fans such a brilliant inspiration. Because of artists like you the fan community never gets boring :aww:
