BaeBerry's Biscuit (Valentine's Day 2018) by STan94 BaeBerry's Biscuit (Valentine's Day 2018) by STan94

Shepard: Hey baeberry, how's the biscuit? Do you like it? Um…babe?

Jack: I hate you and your fucking nicknames…


Heart Love Happy Valentine’s Week/Day folks!Heart Love 




Commentary:

The idea for this piece started out while I was browsing through the Mass Effect Facebook Group .

A member Lance Balmora started calling Jack "Bae-Berry Biscuit" in a post. The nickname quickly became a running gag within the group. But some wondered why the nickname was given. Lance explains in a comment that "BoBerry Biscuits are tough on the outside (burnt) but then past the rough exterior they are sweet as a skittle dipped in honey butter, like Jack. Jack is BAE. So the two amalgamated for the purpose of a post." 

Some found the nickname annoying; at least one found it dumb. I personally think it’s both of those, AND it’s cute as well. But what pulled me in was the symbolism behind it.

So now we're here. I wanted it to look as if Jack is about to do something with that biscuit and I positioned her in way that looks very Instagram-y. I wanted her expression to look like a mix between affection and annoyance. 

The biotics look more electrical here than it is in-canon; I just like this look better. To be honest, I'm not very happy with the result but I'll try better next time. 

I intentionally made the biotic bolt pierce through the heart biscuit, for obvious reasons FREE flying hearts Icon 

 If you stare at the picture from afar, it looks like Jack is holding a heart balloon. 

I'm lucky that it’s the Month of Love, because this ties in nicely.

I don't know why but for a second I thought that biscuit was a fried-up alien heart (like the organ)!

It does look a bit off. I'm honestly not too happy with it but I didn't have another choice since it was the only decent picture I could find of it.

It's okay.  Jack herself looks great.  And after a second the heart does look like a scone or biscuit.

And yeah, the effect of the biotics around it made it seem like it's being fried. I think I get where you're coming from now.

Honestly, i wouldn't have worked as hard if Jack wasn't my favourite waifu in the Citadel :D

I felt ripped off by that DLC; I was told "Conduct one final battle with your ME1 and ME2 friends"; and yet all I got was Wrex.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Wrex and his stories.
But I wanted to see Jack's opinion on Maya Brooks and my clone. Or Miranda, or Kasumi*.

The lack of variety was also bothersome; EVERYONE has identical opinions of the Clone; "You're just a pale imitation of the real thing."

*Kasumi should have been a romance option, and Kelly should NOT have been forgotten by that DLC. In fact, I wish the ENTIRE Ex-Cerberus crew stayed with me; I'd take them over the Alliance crew.

If the Citadel DLC is a feast, then Bioware is the host. And the different L.I.'s/companions are the guests. 

Us Jack/Kasumi/Kelly lovers were clearly not in our gracious host's priority.

Haha, if only Jack/Miri/Kasumi/Kelly brought out their fine cloaks, maybe Bioware would've attended to them more.

The visibility of their butts should have been enough, but I guess it wasn't. Oh well.

Speaking of cloaks, did I ever tell you of an idea of mine that I believe is brilliant but Bioware threw it in the trash because I am not an employee of theirs?

Also, I know the title wouldn't sing as good, but that looks more like sweet-jelly-filled pastry covered in that white icing you find on a cinnamon roll instead of a "biscuit".

Tell me about it, leave me a note or something.

It's actually filled with blueberries hence the "Bo" in "BoBerry Biscuit". I think it was named just because it has a good ring to it.
