Finally had some R 'n R with Mass Effect 2 the last few days, so I was inspired to finally settle on my OC/sona for Mass Effect. I've been waffling between human, turian, and salarian for a long time now, and despite my best efforts to convince myself otherwise, I always end up back on salarians as the best species that represents me (which is why my OC is more like a ME-sona than a stand-alone character).
I hit a wall in canon with the salarian females and all, so I decided to include a rough background for the character that I can identify with personally. That detail is the fact that, though I am not a feminist, I do find the stereotypical female gender role in society really infuriating. I have nothing against kids, but I'm not a baby person, so I sort of amplified that part of me in this character. Of course when one encounters some kind of canon limitation like this, it's easy to slip into the Mary-Sue rut, so I did my best to avoid something cliche' or unbelievable. I hate Sues, ugh.
Anyway, so here she is, finally finished. I spent an oddly long time on this, probably a good 6 hours cuz I nitpicked and designed the whole outfit and picked colors and such in one fell swoop. Pardon my bragging, but I am rather surprised and proud of this >.< I hardly expected it to turn out this well. It's basically exactly what I pictured in my mind.
Anyway, I was pissed off tonight because I screwed up Tali's loyalty mission so she's mad at me. Then I realized I could save her loyalty for after I get Legion (I think you get 2 chances before .. y'know... IT happens), and I want to bring Legion on the Flotilla, so... I'm gonna have to start over a ways back and blah de blah de blah. However, I watched the leaked beta for ME3 and got all teary at one point, and then nosebled at another, and then just generally peed my pants over how awesome it is. Okay all of that was untrue except the teary part. They are just getting so DAMN good at games now. Jeeze louise, who needs movies nowadays, eh?
Wow rambling. XD

PS: If you know what fictional language "Ilthwain" was inspired from, I'll give you a llama or something, if I can.
EDIT: I am also aware of the typo in "Badasses" in the text, but I am way to lazy to go fix that.
