i'm gonna join you on the kaidan defence squad tbh. people that still don't get why he's angry and hurt make me want to screeeeam
the kaidan defence squad sure af is lacking people
but honestly tho like kaidan would NEVER EVER think ‘shep is my best pal in the whole galaxy, i’ll drop everything for them at any time, consequences be damned’ and that’s something i deeply admire about him, that as much as he loves shepard, he knows dumb shit when he sees it and obviously won’t hesitate to confront you about it. and being able to communicate shit like that is key in a well-functioning relationship u guys.
kaidan’s writers could very easily have made it so that a romanced kaidan’s life basically revolves around shepard and is always at their disposal no matter what, but they didn’t and for that, i am so grateful. he’s not some lovesick puppy who’d jump off a cliff if shepard asked him to.
kaidan alenko is a wonderful and complex character who deserves so much love and i’ll never not defend his honour.
My best friend is also totally obsessed with Mass Effect like me and of course has her own Shepard who she has heavily customized with mods and Gibbed’s editing. Like everyone else and their own Shepard, my best friend loves her Shep to death. But, though I would NEVER tell her this, I think her Shepard is hideous and creepy looking and hate seeing screencaps of her because she’s just that ugly and unsettling looking.
Whenever I play mass effect 1, whether I romance Kaidan or not, I like to imagine that my fem shep is best friends with Garrus and gradually falls in love with him. Hence, if I romanced Kaidan, she rejects the chance of intimacy with Kaidan the night before Ilos due to her harbouring of feelings for Garrus. And in Mass Effect 2, I romance Garrus. Mass Effect 3: I choose Garrus. Idk why this appeals to me so much, but I just love Garrus and his romance is my favourite.
