A, K, and U for the ask meme.

A - Ships that you currently like a lot. (They don’t have to be OTPs because not everyone has OTPs.) Friendships, pairings, threesomes, etc. are allowed.

Trying to spread out some of the fandom choices… Elara/Trooper (friendship/relationship/whatever), IA/Vector/Temple (friends), Ashley/Kaidan/Shepard (friendship/relationship/whatever)..Evie/Rick from the Mummy (romance), Mulder and Scully from the X-files. Mercy and Pharah from Overwatch as a secondhand ship.

K - What character has your favorite development arc/the best development arc?

From Mass Effect, I’ve always really liked Ashley’s arc in ME1 (realistic take on someone coming to terms with their own biases and growing from them), Wrex’s arc from ME1-3 (even if rushed) and Mordin from ME2-3 (redemption).

From Dragon Age: Morrigan in DA:O (unromanced, friendship), Isabela from DA2, Blackwall from Inquisition.

From SWTOR: Elara (friendship or [surprisingly, given some of the other stuff in this class story or in general] the romance), Kira, and in a more subdued sense Watcher Two and Keeper.

U - Three favorite characters from three different fandoms, and why they’re your favorites.

Damn didn’t notice I needed to save some here too.

1. SWTOR: Elara (*gush* everything), Vector (similar beats as Elara but from a much different angle, and I like nice guys), General Garza (trash favorite)

2. Baldur’s Gate: Minsc (and Boo), Viconia (more of an Ice Queen than I usually prefer. Her “good” romance ending broke my heart), Imoen (where I first experienced video game sibling protectiveness

3. Star Trek: Sisko (all-around cool guy, makes difficult decisions and makes mistakes), Tuvok (strangled Neelix once), Doctor (Voyager. did a really good job with sometimes questionable writing). If I had to sub out Tuvok I’d go with Picard probably.
