tbh can we end the ‘canon Shepard’ crap because it’s really annoying. It’s good to share headcanons and make up hcs about YOUR Shepard, but saying YOUR headcanon is canon and applies to EVERY Shepard is bullshit.
Shepard is whoever you want them to be.
It’s YOUR canon, not EVERYONE’S.
The only canon thing is that Shepard can’t dance (that might also be wrong since some people hc their Shepards can dance a bit and there’s nothing wrong with that).
Stop invalidating other peoples’ headcanons and forcing YOUR headcanons on them.
We all played the game differently and we all view Shepard in a different light.
Every Shepard is legit, no Shepard is better than the other, every Shepard has their own personality and saying people “portray Shepard in a wrong way” is bullshit because there’s no “wrong way” and there’s no “right way”.
And just because they use the default face also doesn’t mean they all have to be the same.
Every John and Jane is unique in their own way, just because someone uses the same face as you doesn’t mean they have the same personality.
If you crap on someone’s headcanons you’re the problem, you’re spreading negativity in the fandom and make people feel bad about themselves. Stop it! Just stop it!
Just because they don’t share the same ideas and headcanons doesn’t mean they’re bad people! Just because they have different ideas doesn’t mean they’re bad people!
So stop crapping on them if they have a different idea of who Shepard is, it’s childish, immature and you’re just wasting your time because you cannot change peoples’ way of thinking by insulting them.
And no, you’re not cool or edgy or whatever if you crap on people. Being a dick isn’t cool for fuck’s sake.
