I can’t complain much about canon Shep being a soldier - my canon FemShep is a soldier.

I have just rolled a MShep vanguard, though, so I know a little bit about the rest of what you’re talking about. I don’t know if you roll MShep or FemShep, but you can only…

Just to chime in…. It’s not AU if you have to rewrite the scenarios so that they function with their actual own universal rules…

Bad writing cannot be suffered, ladies.

Sorry to butt in but you’ve got me thinking now.

I mean, seriously, Tevos couldn’t have caught Udina in a Stasis field? Or Liara if you have her with you? Talking only about biotics, there’s a minimum of three options for Shepard alone, with a fourth if you are leveled that far: Throw, Biotic Charge, Pull and Shockwave. Any of those would have worked as an option to take Udina down. Hell, Shep could’ve knocked the VS aside with biotics and shot Udina anyway. 

But what about taking biotics out of the equation? There are other abilities available after all. How about tossing an Overload at the control panel, the explosion throwing Udina back, disarming him, so he could be taken into custody by the VS - Garrus could’ve done that or either an Engineer or Sentinel Shepard, right? Or Overload the pistol he’s carrying, Sabotage it even? Infiltrator could get in on that action, Kaidan too. There’s also ammo powers that can come into play - Cryo for an Infilrator/Soldier or Vega. Or a Concussive Shot to the shoulder from Garrus, Soldier, or Ashley, if she is your VS.

There are plenty of other options available for that scene that do not involve either Shepard or the VS making a killing shot. But hey, what would I or other players know? We just play the game after all. Not like we’ve invested in it.

Shall we make a game of seeing how many ways we can rewrite that scene and still have it make more sense than actual in game footage? I’m getting tempted (I know, I know, with WHAT TIME?!) to see how many unique ways we can come up with.

Purely as an aesthetic exercise, of course…

I like this game! Count me in!

There are SO MANY different ways that scene could have gone down, and even using the ‘standard soldier shep’ excuse falls flat on its ass as soon as you think about the metric fuck ton of awesome powers a ‘standard basic shep’ has. I find it so unimaginably hard to believe that a) a SINGLE BULLET would kill the VS through ARMOR AND SHIELDS AND A BARRIER IF YOUR VS IS KAIDAN (I also find it ridiculous to believe that Kaidan’s instincts wouldn’t have his barrier up and running AS SOON AS he thought Shepard was a threat) b) Shepard OR Kaidan OR Ashley would just STAND THERE LIKE WATER STARVED CACTUSES while Udina bitch-slapped Tevos and threw her to the ground and c) that NO ONE THINKS TO USE ANYTHING OTHER THAN A GUN AT THE LAST MOMENT like jfc is this mass effect or is this a standard dude-bro shooter??

So many scenes need to be adjusted to make them MAKE SENSE in fanfic, incorporating biotics and team skills. Like, I get from a logistical standpoint why some of that is the way it is, but it doesn’t make it suck any less.

Thank goodness they forgot that Kaidan was a biotic for thr elevator scene. A biotic as powerful as him would have ripped the roof off and sent Shepard and co. Tumbling down the elevator shaft.

Comments of the party after fighting themselves in the Gauntlet

  • Morrigan:

    Hmph. No doubt this had something to do with "facing the dark side of your soul" or some such rubbish.

  • Leliana:

    Did you see the cruelty on my... on her face? Is that really what I am?

  • Sten:

    This proves nothing. I have nothing to fear from shadows.

  • Oghren:

    *laughs* I can't believe I kicked my own ass!

  • Wynne:

    Well, I wasn't expecting that, and I certainly don't want to go through it again.

  • Alistair:

    That was... weird...

  • And then there is this guy, named Zevran:

    Maker's breath, I'm beautiful. Did you see that? Did you see me? Magnificent.

So, I am really liking the Destiny beta. Probably gonna go reserve it now.

My only complaint is that Peter Dinklage… kinda sucks as a voice actor…

Here is hoping that they have some better takes for the final game cuz woof…

midgardian etiquette 101: when going to their homes, hang your coat first or in some cases, your mjolnir.

naw maybe it’s actually asgardian custom to check your weapons at the door

It was medieval custom to check your weapons at the door of the meadhall before greeting the king of the place you were going to. It was courteous and showed respect. You can see it in Beowulf. 

what i don’t understand is how that hook can hold the mjolnir.

the hook is worthy

the hook is worthy

Peter Pan would disagree.

I’ve not read the comics but I always figured Mjolnir wasn’t heavy so much as stubborn, and if it decided it didn’t wanna move it just wouldn’t. It sits on Loki, rather than crushing him in Thor 1, and in Avengers it rests on the floor of the ship, and trying to pick it up Hulk starts breaking the floor with his weight, but Mjolnir doesn’t seem to weight anything at all (If it was as heavy as Hulk implied, it would drag the whole ship to the ground right?). Mjolnir isn’t heavy, cos its not going down, instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. Hence, the hook doesn’t hold it, it merely remains in place.

so what you’re trying to say is that Mjolnir is like a chicken head

 instead it is a fixed point and everything else just moves around it. 

OK SO WHAT YOU ARE SAYING
IS THAT WHEN THIS HAMMER WAS FORGED IN THE HEART OF A STAR IT BECAME A FIXED QUANTUM POINT
AND THE UNIVERSE MOVES AROUND IT—AND THOR IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE PROPER RESONANCE TO INTERACT WITH IT ON A QUANTUM LEVEL
AND SO HE IS THE ONLY ONE WITH THE LEVERAGE REQUIRED TO SHIFT THE REST OF THE UNIVERSE AROUND THE FIXED POINT THAT IS MJOLNIR

THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE

DUDE YOU GUYS SCIENCED THORS HAMMER THAT IS AWESOME

i just… can’t have this not on my blog.
