Your post about Sonya being like a mother for Nino made me draw this… I’m not sure Genny will let Nino steal her favorite mom ;-)

Sonya is still best mom though.

OH MY GOD I’M CRYING I LOVE IT?????? kiddos plz. but i’m sure eventually genny and nino will decide MAYBE they can share sonyamom after all and end up the best of sisters :’)

Dreamer’s really pushing my buttons. John’s over here admitting his own fault in keeping the fake memories a secret and Dreamer’s continuing to say she was in the right.

Y e s , we all know she did it to save lives, but she also had the ability to take the memory away from Clarice before things escalated or have been upfront about it and hoped for the best.

Dreamer kept Clarice compliant and took away her agency to make her own decisions because she thought she had a tether keeping her to the Underground. Clarice “has her own issues to sort out. Her own people to find” and being manipulated didn’t help her.

“Fierce like the history of poetry itself, Alina Pleskova gives us poetry that explores how relations, love, and even failed love are where the real answers await. I would read anything she writes, a poet who gives the world back to us with her brilliant, assertive poems. Say Thank You Alina and BUY THIS BOOK!” – CAConrad

“In Alina Pleskova’s What Urge Will Save Us fever, competing economies of intimacies, work, and cultural expectation circulate together around a speaker who resists definition(s). Off-handed insight and candor brew an extremely subtle defiance here, allowing Pleskova to ask in subways, on sidewalks, of partners and friends all the gorgeous questions about how to resist and persist.” – Cynthia Arrieu-King

“I thought it’d be more years of / men repeating my jokes louder / instead I swallowed / something electric” and I’m not exaggerating when I say Alina’s is the only poetry I read these days. What Urge Will Save Us is a potent little book, all summer thighs sticking to the bus seat and late-night existential crises tempered with tarot; the kind of thing you write “!!!” in the margins of and make your friends borrow like they could ever care the way you do. Forget mamochka with her zakuski and come drink up the sun tonight, it’s all-in out here, it is, excuse me, really fucking great. You’ll remember this one.“ – Sonya Vatomsky

"When your post-millennial love/life is feeling all Buffy S6 going through the motions minus that up-tempo musical number destined to be a breakaway pop hit— what’s a girl to do? If you’re Alina Pleskova, you re/write it, your own Ballad of Sexual Ennui, chronicling the struggle for intimacy & understanding among lovers & friends in a world gone weird. In her new chapbook, Pleskova writes with a weary wisdom, naked & true, sentimental minus the mawkish. Here is a suite of anthems for a sexual revolutionary charting her course out of the whimper & back to the bang. Her urge will save you if you let it.” – Jenn McCreary

So I can’t let Shepard’s birthday pass without celebrating Sonya. As silly as this sounds, this gal changed my life. I thought I was done with writing, but then one day, Sonya woke up and informed me that I have a hell of a lot of stories to tell and I better get to it. 

More importantly, playing Mass Effect and posting about Sonya led to all of you. I’ve been so lucky with friendships on tumblr and I can’t thank you all enough. 

Ao3 tells me there are 167,121 posted words about Sonya. And there are a lot of unposted and unfinished works to be posted some day. 

Here are some important links to my Garrus-romancing, Earth Born, Sole Survivor Engineer, aka, the light of my life.
