more "aliens being surprised by humans" stuff

our ability to belt out one entire three to five minute long song if we’re familiar with it like. suvi starts singing “hallelujah” to fill the quiet and is answered by liam all across the room in a p decent harmony. cora walks past and starts humming it enthusiastically even tho she can’t stay very long. gil joins in for the third refrain. ryder finishes it off with a passionate solo.

when they look around every alien is staring at them. vetra blinks and knocks her hands together. “that’s what you’re supposed to do when humans make those sounds right?” she asks kallo beside her, who mirrors her. everyone is a little stunned at the coordination and emotion in the performance and they all look equally moved. jaal might be crying. none of them know what a ‘hallelujah’ is, but they feel like they’ve come to understand it through this melody

they’re all extremely confused when all of the humans still continue on on their tasks without pause

edit; other songs include but are not limited to: bohemian rhapsody, mr. brightside, single ladies, no scrubs, and i will always love you

They all look so cool. So perfect. Its nice to see all of their official titles too.

Jaal - Resistance Fighter

Drack - Veteran Warrior

Liam - Crisis Specialist

Peebee - Rogue Academic

Vetra - Drifter Mercenary

Cora - Biotic Commando

(I mean I dont think we’ve seen them all before, especially not together, so its nice to see)

Jaal’s makes me think that the Angara have probably been fighting the Kett for some time which is why they’re so okay with the new species. (At least some of them. Maybe there is also infighting among the Angara. Who knows? I’m excited to find out though)

Changed up my Princess Allura makeup, this time I outlined the crown in black, I wanted to try that since in the show her crown is outlined, and I did a darker shade for the markings and lipstick :). The little mouse in the corner is for Allura’s mice friends!

Makeup: Sephora, Maybelline New York, & Nyx

Andromeda crew character summaries for people who haven't played the game
  • Cora Harper: Space mom. Likely puts a nutritious meal and cute little notes with smiley faces in your lunchbag. 10/10.
  • Vetra Nyx: Spiky space mom. Likely puts twenty bucks and a can of pringles in your lunchbag. 10/10.
  • Liam Kosta: Excellent space boy. Basically human sunshine. His smile has probably already cured you of a disease you didn't know you had. 10/10.
  • Nakmor Drack: Cranky space grandpa. Probably that one person at the family party who gets drunk on booze you didn't know you had and falls asleep against a wall. 10/10.
  • Pelessaria "Peebee" B'Sayle: The "hold my beer, watch this" space friend. I aspire to give as few fucks as her one day. 10/10.
  • Dr. Suvi Anwar: Absolutely adorable. A sweet, precious baby unicorn. Gorgeous. Licked a rock once and the rock blushed. 10/10.
  • Gil Brodie: Irreverent space engineer. That one college classmate who lets you copy his answers, but u have to buy him a beer after. Would probably lend u his kidney if u asked for it. 10/10.
  • Reyes Vidal: The one space uncle who looks and sounds like your dad but makes finger guns way more often and has way more money than him. You don't know why. You're not sure you want to know why. 10/10.
  • Kallo Jath: That one hipster dog-walker on the street who just seems super chill all the time but is currently wrangling 7 overly excited puppies who all want to go in different directions. You want to be his friend. You want to be him. Secretly the puppies are all his emotions. 10/10.
  • Jaal Ama Darav: Please just be kind to him, he's crying his best. 10/10.

Ryder is the best (boy)friend ever for conspiring with Sid and getting the puppy population started. Keema gets a kitten when she protests.

Also, Reyes’ actual home is a ship with just enough space for the two of them, and which no one else knows about. He just crashes at Tartarus.

For Reyes’ appreciation week!

Honestly the most relatable gay content I’ve ever seen in a video game is the part where Gil is like, “Suvi and Vetra are MY GIRLS” like of course they are queer people stick together hell I wouldn’t be surprised if Jill was queer too. It’s a nice take on the “gay guys only have female friends” thing because yeah all his friends are girls but all his friends are QUEER girls and thats honestly some proof that Actual Queer People wrote the queer characters in this game and I’m Excite.
