These two fight like polar opposites, always bickering and never meeting ends, which is pretty amusing to Zer’ruh, as it causes them to get into situations that wouldn’t have happend, if they weren’t butting heads.
Gale pretty much looks out for himself, not concerning himself with others or their affairs, and turns his nose up towards those he deems in lower standing than him, which is the majority of the population, as he holds the title ‘anchor’, or “Keeper of the Moon / Chain” .
Sebeaux on the other hand, is selfless, and will always throw out a helping hand to those in need, and would even take a bullet for a butterfly. He believes he is equal to all people of the realm, and would never hold his title above someone else, as he rarely mentions it at all, and holds the title ‘anchor’ or “Keeper of the Sun / Chain”.
Two more precious children added to the SoS cauldron, muahahaha :D -I originally had a comic planned to go under the sketches, but it kind of turned into chapter fragment of sorts, and so I decided to go ahead and throw this set out there.
i think one of the reasons why female shepard going through all of ME affects me more than male shepard is bc while men are expected to carry the weight of the world Stoically, women are expected to handle Everything- to handhold and take the blame onto ourselves and, when put in positions of power, act just as stoically. jane's story KILLS me because it's a completely plausible story- she suffers and she suffers and is told she's crazy and when everything's gone to hell she still has to fix it
i’m attached to femshep primarily BECAUSE i feel like her story is just a tad bit more powerful when you portray shepard as a woman.
like i’ve seen men talk about mass effect and how disrespected the council made them feel. the council brushed shepard off, called them crazy, and then came crawling back when shit went awry. “why didn’t they just believe them in the first place?” they say, “the evidence was there, and they blew shepard off.”
meanwhile EVERY single woman i’ve talked to about mass effect related to shepard. she was slandered, spit on, and told she was delusional. almost every woman has been called crazy for seeing a problem that ‘wasn’t there’, whether it was a family issue, a societal issue, or even a business issue. and then, in the end, shepard had to clean up the mess anyway.
and while maleshep’s story rings a little bit cliche– man saves the galaxy through sheer force of will– it feels…. stronger, more original, more powerful as femshep. this woman was backhanded and gaslit so many times, and she still rose up and did the impossible anyway.
bioware has a fuckton of problems, and i know there were issues with how they treated femsheps character, but overall?
the mass effect trilogy, when headed by femshep, is honestly one of the most feminist stories i’ve ever seen.
