Thanks friend! I’m not exactly sure now, having just replayed ME3, if I’m really down for this ship. That art on my blog before came outta my queue.
Disclaimer, ship what you gotta ship, no ship hate, just musing on my own gut reaction to it…
I feel like a lot of this ship is probably riding on the hungover Javik dialogue where he talks about how beautiful he thought this dream asari was, and yeah, I see that and it’s pretty cute, but for the most part, Javik is… well he’s an asshole. No two ways around it. He’s rude, he’s insensitive, and he’s never exactly all that nice to Liara. I mean this coming from a girl who ships Jackanda, so I love me some antagonism, but it’s not mutual antagonism, it’s more like… I don’t know, kicking your faithful and loving puppy. Like, Liara didn’t do anything to deserve Javik’s scorn, and I feel like she copped the brunt of it? Idk.
Just musing. I’m sure there are some great fics dealing with this exact dynamic but my initial reaction is a little squick.
