[Sighs.] Looks like I’m having a chat with Cora. And probably Lexi.

omgggggggg tho…. i just realized….

in the final memory with Garrus’s dad talking to Ryder’s dad,  it’s because of Garrus believing Shepard and experiencing everything in ME1, that Garrus’s dad believes him and pushes that intel throughout Palaven’s and the Council’s higher echelons.  

IT’S BECAUSE OF WHO SHEPARD WAS, BECAUSE OF WHO GARRUS WAS, THAT THE INITIATIVE GOT IT’S FINAL BOOST AND RUSH OUT THE DOOR TO AVOID THE REAPERS

EVEN THOUGH THE MILKY WAY EVENTUALLY DEFEATED THE REAPERS, THE MILKY WAY LIVED ON BECAUSE OF SHAKARIAN

I’M GOING TO SCREAM

More extended banter with my Ryder (Erika)

Jaal: So Liam, I’m still confused about the nonspecific erogenous zones.

Ryder: Yikes! 

Liam: *coughing* Um, maybe now’s not the time?

Jaal: Why not? I have no shame about my relationship with Ryder.

Liam: Yes, but we consider that private…like…Oh! Like how Angara never ever talk publicly about being sick like the other day.

Jaal: Liam, conversation over.

Ryder: Wait, wait, you were sick? THAT’S why you said you couldn’t come over? Are you okay? Do I need to take you back to the ship? Should I talk to Sahuna get some medicine or something to help?

Jaal: I’m fine, there is no need.

Liam: Ah, forgot to mention, sickness in humans usually breeds worry and lots of care taking.

Ryder: I can take you back to the Tempest if you need, Lexi’s been talking to some Angaran doctors -

Jaal: I. Am. Fine.

Ryder: You do look a little flushed. Liam, take the wheel. 

Liam: RYDER.

Ryder: *leans back and touches Jaal’s forehead* You feel feverish. 

Jaal: Perhaps it is because we are on a hot planet. Please, darling one, I’m fine…though your concern is…touching.

Ryder: *unconvinced* Oookay, but if you start to feel bad just let me know, you can even give me one of those shocks if it’s uncomfortable to say it aloud. I don’t want you overdoing it. 

Liam: Look, this is really touching and everything but can you please take the wheel back.

Some intriguing exoplanets

An exoplanet or extrasolar planet is a planet that orbits a star other than the Sun. The first scientific detection of an exoplanet was in 1988. However, the first confirmed detection came in 1992; since then, and as of 1 April 2017, there have been 3,607 exoplanets discovered in 2,701 planetary systems and 610 multiple planetary systems confirmed.

1- Kepler-186f

was the first rocky planet to be found within the habitable zone – the region around the host star where the temperature is right for liquid water. This planet is also very close in size to Earth. Even though we may not find out what’s going on at the surface of this planet anytime soon, it’s a strong reminder of why new technologies are being developed that will enable scientists to get a closer look at distant worlds.

2- CoRoT 7b

The first super-Earth identified as a rocky exoplanet, this planet proved that worlds like the Earth were indeed possible and that the search for potentially habitable worlds (rocky planets in the habitable zone) might be fruitful.

3- Kepler-22b  

A planet in the habitable zone and a possible water-world planet unlike any seen in our solar system.

4- Kepler 10-b

Kepler’s first rocky planet discovery is a scorched, Earth-size world that scientists believe may have a lava ocean on its surface.

5- 55 Cancri e

55 Cancri e is a toasty world that rushes around its star every 18 hours. It orbits so closely – about 25 times closer than Mercury is to our sun – that it is tidally locked with one face forever blisters under the heat of its sun. The planet is proposed to have a rocky core surrounded by a layer of water in a “supercritical” state, where it is both liquid and gas, and then the whole planet is thought to be topped by a blanket of steam.

6- 51 Pegasi b

This giant planet, which is about half the mass of Jupiter and orbits its star every four days, was the first confirmed exoplanet around a sun-like star, a discovery that launched a whole new field of exploration.

7- Kepler-444 system

The oldest known planetary system has five terrestrial-sized planets, all in orbital resonance. This weird group showed that solar systems have formed and lived in our galaxy for nearly its entire existence.

8- PSR B1257+12 system

Discovered in 1992 and 1994, the planets that orbit pulsar PSR B1257+12 are not only the smallest planetary bodies known to exist outside our solar system, they also orbit a neutron star. These weird “pulsar planets” demonstrated that planets exist in all environments in the galaxy – even around the remnants of an exploded star.

9- HD 80606 b  

This world has the most eccentric orbit, and as one scientist put it, “wears its heart on its sleeve,” with storms, rotation, atmospheric heating, and a crazy orbit all plainly visible.

10- OGLE-2005-BLG-390

Considered to be the first cold super Earth, this exoplanet began to form a Jupiter-like core of rock and ice, but couldn’t grow fast enough in size. Its final mass is five times that of Earth. The planet’s nickname is Hoth, after a planet from Star War

Me today: I think I’m finally over being salty about Bioware blatantly not giving a shit about their mlm fans and those who play as mlm ryder - I’ve bought the game already so I should probably try and enjoy it whilst voicing my concerns to the devs in a constructive manner

Me 20 seconds later:

Fact: While rumors that asexuals are capable of asexual reproduction (creating twice the volume with the same amount of mass) are still being confirmed, it is a known fact that Pansexuals at any time are able to parallel this by shoving all of their mass into half the volume. This can be repeated infinitely to create a black hole. Many Pansexuals sacrifice themselves towards the end of their lives to help create wormholes to connect the universe together. This, among other reasons, is why Pansexuals are currently the rulers of the universe.

I just needed to try painting Kitty…I’m not quite there yet, but I decided that she (sometimes) wears fake eyelashes and circle lenses because I figured if I was gonna have her wear more prominent makeup compared to my other characters, I might as well take it further haha

Okay, let’s be real, we all knew I’d come back to a redheaded protagonist, didn’t we?

So, this is Cal (Calliope) Ryder, version two. The weird thing is, she already feels more like herself than she ever did before. She has messy hair. She cares a lot about things but doesn’t always know how to express it (often pendulum-swinging between too much and too little). She loves people even when she doesn’t always understand them and they don’t always understand her. She loves science, and discovery, and hope. She hates being out of control or being lonely. She misses the Milky Way. She looks young and scared because she is young and scared. She always tells the truth. I love her face and want to protect her.
