Since I’ve been
havin Quinn feelings lately, let’s ramble a bit.
I’ve played SoR
shortly after it was released, so of course I didn’t get the romanced line in
the Rishi intro ( bless swtor potato for uploading it here ). I’m not sure if
the Empire side is still bugged.
Quinn’s whole my
love/my lord mixup is nothing short of amazing His father was also in the military, which
means that he was probably taught how to act around his superiors from a young
age. Even if that wasn’t the case, he’s been serving long enough to always
address those higher in chain of command appropriately – especially Sith. And
his whole demeanour is stiff, rigid and purely professional. The whole ‘perfect
Imperial Officer’ behaviour is never dropped – I mean, you can even see it in
the way he addresses Wrath even when talking about a personal relationship
early on. You rarely ever see any actual emotions when talking to him, as he’s
awalys doing his best to follow the most logical course of action and act
He tells you that
he isn’t used to juggling business with pleasure and is detached from his feelings
when doing his job. Every single pixel of that man’s body is screaming this.
And then the 'my
love’ line slips.
Why am I rambling
so much about this, you ask? Because he definitely doesn’t strike me type to
openly show affection in public, even when surrounded by the crew he’s been with
for years now. Because in that line he is addressing The Empire’s Wrath, not
his lover, and dealing with a situation which requiers his skills, not emotions.
Now to the good part – in such a situation, he actually had some emotions
slip. I ask you, how many times do you
think he called Warrior 'my love’ to have it associated with them immediately, like
second nature? How much time has he been calling them 'my love’ that it overrides the whole 'Sith are addressed
as my lord’ which he’s been taught from an early age? How many times has he
referred to them as 'my love’, not out loud, but while watching them sleep or during
their free time on the ship or in the stronghold or any other time they weren’t
either out in the public or on a job. How much time has it been since he
stopped thinking about them as 'my lord’ and started thinking of them as 'my
love’? How freaking much must he love Warrior to, just for a second, forget
about behaving professionally and actually have something like that slip?
Oh my GOD. I’ll just be rolling here on the
floor screaming about this.
