Whenever someone gets upset about T'Sovik I can’t help but picture one of my little sisters throwing a tantrum.
Like, really? T'Sovik is not popular by any stretch of the imagination. “Oh no people have free will and are shipping Liara with someone other than Shepard! And with that racist asshole Prothean! Quick! Hide the children!”
I just don’t get how anyone can see T'Sovik as a “threat”.
I enjoy the ship because it adds depth to Liara’s character. I like it because Javik challenges her and she challenges him. They both grow from their interactions with each other. Liara doesn’t just agree with him because he’s a Prothean. She doesn’t let him get away with crap. And that’s what I love.
