Quantum Entanglement Romance by STan94 Quantum Entanglement Romance by STan94
I feel that this requires some explanation. This was intended to accompany a chapter of my fanfiction "Lightyears Away".

Before writing the chapter, I went to watch Bladerunner 2049 and the holographic love scene  in that movie greatly influenced me as I started to write and illustrate the chapter. I thought: "Woah, that scene was freaking amazing, what if I do that but it's in Mass Effect?" So that's the mentality I had. 

I wanted this pair to meet somehow so I figured Shepard had somehow fitted QEC projector into his cabin, since the war room isn't really a private area. Of course, this device wasn't present at all inside Shepard's cabin and that's where I departed from canon for the sake of inserting that Blade Runner inspiration. 

In hindsight, I think the story that I've written just wouldn't work. I won't spare much details about what happens but based on the illustration, I think you all could probably guess the tone of their date.

So now, as I slowly find my way back into re-writing the chapter, I felt that I could still post this picture as a stand-alone. It would still be a "date" chapter, but the medium of communication would be something more familiar to us, like a Skype chat. I know that military personnel already do this sort of thing today so I wanted to insert that in the Mass Effect setting. 

I'm pretty proud with how this picture turned out. I love the lighting and Jack's expression. When Jack smiles without malice, I smile as well Neko Emoji-42 (Kawaii Moe Smile) [V3]

I love this one. You don't see people in the relationship, a lot. You see the courting and the relationship problem but not that happy moments in a relationship.

It's really love to see these with your Shepard - maybe Heinrich (not sure if he's still your favourite) but I suppose that would be difficult to model.

Wonderful insight. I wanted to show a different side of a relationship that doesn't just involve sex(although that's also good). I've seen too many fan arts that just involves either two caressing the other. You don't see that here. It's just two people enjoying each other's presence. Although the bitter twist is that they're only seeing each other through the Q.E.C. and therefore can't really touch each other even if they wanted to.

Heinrich holds a special place in my heart, but yeah, I just didn't want to go through the trouble of getting him to be the model. And I'm sure many would feel more familiar with default Shepard.

I suppose.

Me? Personally? I love following other people's personal Shepards - hearing their stories of their play throughs. Default Shepard is a cardboard cut out and illicits no connection for me. I'd love to see YOUR Shepard - he has a FAR more interesting appeal to me.

Where can I read up more about him?

I never posted any such story about Heinrich I'm afraid. This stuff is all about John and Jack.

God, I hope so! But she's just having a laugh there.

By "when high", I meant when she is high, not when the viewer is high.

Yeah. I think you were pretty clear the first time. I just wasn't in my reply, I tend to do that.
