I hate this assumption that match-making makes multiplayer games okay for people who don’t have friends to play with. Like, I don’t want to talk to strangers, who could turn out to be complete assholes, just so I can play your game.
I really hope that the game doesn’t make fun of Jaal for not understanding Milky Way idioms and that there are opportunities to explain things to him, or at least that he’s knowledgable in other areas so he can show off experience that the other squadmates don’t have to balance it out.
I really hate it when games make fun of characters that don’t understand certain expressions or sarcasm and expect you to laugh along without giving you a chance to help them understand.
This beautiful post happened, and I couldn’t resist using it as an AU for my own Ryder, Erin! So I take no credit for the concept, just running with it to drench myself in more gross fluff involving Jaal and Ryder :3c
I’m 100% sure I can’t do more justice to Jaal’s side of the story than the original post did, so this is from Ryder’s side of things.
