I’m Commander Shepard, and these two are my favorite rides on the Citadel.
Wait, no, please I didn’t actually think about this really happening. I mean, I knew it would but… Gansey…. President Cellphone…

nothing will break your readers like chapters written from the pov of other characters who don’t yet know their beloved protagonist has died
My anaconda will consider it
My anaconda has, upon review of the information presented with it’s partners, decided that it, in fact, does not. My anaconda apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks you for your time.

- ONE RULE: DON’T CLICK AND DRAG UNTIL YOU FIND SOMETHING YOU LIKE!
- if you want me to add anything just write me. i’ll add that and update the post!
I love all the click and drag games on Tumblr and after I read an article about diversity in YA books, I wanted to make a click and drag “game” myself. (i think this was the article, but i’m not sure, sorry)

In honor of Retribution getting closer and closer…
If I’ve learned anything from video games, it is that when you meet enemies, it means that you’re going in the right direction.
that’s really inspiring
holy fucking shit
I mean, I think it’s pretty clear which character I love most above all others. I’ve only written entire fics dedicated to him and screamed about my undying love for this little shit at the top of my lungs on a regular basis.
But doesn’t have any flaws? Let me tell you about Kaidan Alenko’s flaws.
He’s a judgemental little turd. EDI even calls him out on it in ME3 during the party. He has some strong opinions and forms flash judgments about the people he meets based on them. Doesn’t mean he doesn’t change his mind later, ‘cause he’s a grown man capable of admitting when he was wrong, but he doesn’t always renege on the things he’s said.
He lets his emotions get the better of him sometimes and shoves his foot so far down his mouth, it’s a miracle people don’t see his tail. While sometimes his propensity for not thinking before he speaks is endearing (re: Citadel ‘there’s no reason they wouldn’t like you’) it also lands him in hot water, re: Horizon. (Not saying he’s wrong, but his delivery left a little something to be desired - as did Shepard’s.)
He’s exceptionally stubborn. Not always a bad thing, but not always a good thing, either.
I’d say he’s also a bit vain, though this is more a personal interpretation. He certainly likes to be seen as fit and capable. He wants to know he could take Vega in a fist fight, ‘cause Vega is beefy mchuge in ME3.
But I mean, these all make him the rich character that he is. Without flaws to balance out the wonderful parts of him, he wouldn’t feel real. That connection I feel to his character wouldn’t exist because a perfect person isn’t something any of us can really relate to. For all Miranda’s talk about her being engineered to be perfect, she’s far from it. Perfect characters aren’t interesting, don’t have anything to offer, and don’t have any room to grow. All the interesting things happen to them but not because of them. They don’t make mistakes or bad judgment calls.
Kaidan Alenko absolutely has flaws, and it’s one of the reasons I love him so much.

Here is all of Kaidan’s ‘background chatter’ from the party in the Citadel DLC. They’re ordered from sober to drunk. Kaidan’s was fun, almost makes a bit of a story.
Due to popular demand, I will be eventually posting the background chatter for every character. If you’d like to, track ‘#mass effect sound’ That’s the tag I use for any audio files I post from the game.
Next up… Wrex.
