I am no longer lost on EOS and I am now lost on Havarl.
Have some more notes:
What I absolutely adore about Ryder is that they’re complete opposite of Shepard.
Shepard was a hardened military officer, the product of one of the most intense training programs a human can go through, years of experience in leadership and combat.
Ryder is twenty-two and, not that.
Alec Ryder was ‘that’, but Sara? No fucking way.
You can kind of tell that everyone in the game was kind of expecting an Alec Ryder but then they get Ryder and it’s like, who’s this kid?
When the group first meets Jaal, Sara has trouble wrangling in all of their opinions and bringing the team to an agreement. “Can we all just listen for a moment, please?” People listened to Shepard, but Sara? Sara’s got an uphill battle.
Sara was an enlisted solder who spent a few years in light combat with no true leadership experience; Now thousands of people are looking at her like as a shinning beacon.
I love that’s she awkward, that’s she surprised when people put authority on her. She went from the bottom of the totem pole to having the Captain’s quarters on a state of the art ship by accident and it’s great because we get to see her step up to that role.
So I have met the angaras
Shepard would’ve strode out like a boss. Sara? “I hope they don’t eat me.
Walking down the street with all the Angaras, just kind of feeling the tension in everyone at this suddenness. I love the reactions the Angaras have. Some are curious, others are upset at the outsiders.
Dude I was so shocked when we came out of the jump and BAM there’s those Kett ships.
I love that Sara kind of panics.
Everything happens so fast, it’s all shocking.
The awkward handshake, thing, between Sara and Jaal. That small difference is so huge.
Speaking of Jaal, he’s so cute? Like you can really tell that’s he’s a kind person and he wants to help.
In the first conversation on the ship Sara offers to help him with his tinkering, just to get to know him better?
Game is still gorgeous. From the design to the colors. Bioware nailed the backgrounds.
The Tempest’s design is so great. It’s different from the Normandy but also intuitive and kinda fun, like the ladder, or the inclusion of the bunks.
Your room is gorgeous, I like how homely it feels.
Talking with Scott killed me dead
I chose to tell him that Alec had died.
But I had to tell him that we had found home. It might come back to bite me but God Damn it he’s in a coma.
Sara calling Alec ‘little brother’ reblog if you agree.
She is not Garrus and that makes me very, very happy.
She’s straight-laced but not stiff?
She’ll bend the rules, like bribing an official to get the Tempest off the ground, but she’s doing it to help Ryder.
She is so ready to help people and work for the better good.
She’s on top of the game.
She’s so perfect, I love her.
Honestly it’s between her and Jaal at the moment. It’ll depends on who woos me first.
shepard didn't ask for any of this. she wasn't prophesied. she didn't even wake up one day and go "well. time to save the galaxy." she was shoved and strongarmed into her fate. she wasn't even allowed to DIE in peace. she could have walked away at any time, but she accepted these backbreaking responsibilities and gave every bit of herself for people that didn't even value her beyond a tool for survival—
