"It’s bad alright"
In ME2 I mentioned that’s when Garrus really impressed me. In my first playthrough I actually romanced Kaidan and didn’t romance anyone in ME2 the first time I played it, to stay faithful to Kaidan. Even though I wasn’t romancing Garrus at that time, I remember thinking “Garrus and Shepard have a nice rapport with each other.”
Even though there wasn’t anything romantic, I saw a true friendship between Garrus and Shepard. They were bros, BFF’S, you know, that sort of thing. I started shipping them as BROtp. In a non romantic sense.
The second time I played ME2 I planned to maybe play bad morals Shepard and cheat on Kaidan. I was originally planning to do that with Jacob, but when Garrus told his “reach and flexability” story, I just had to choose the option where Shepard suggest they ”blow off steam” Garrus thinks it’s innocent at first and then the option “not what I meant” pops up and I just HAD to do it.
Hilarity followed, in one of the most sweetest, sincerest moments I’ve seen since Alistair gives you the rose in Dragon Age.
Garrus words really struck me when he tells Shepard she can find something closer to home. The moment between them before the final battle was awkward, but very touching.
Instead of being this scene of “sex before we die” it was a tender exchange of emotions. Garrus is so worried about offending Shepard, he’s so worried about doing something wrong and making her reconsider. He even confesses his fears to Shepard, and how he just wants something to go right for once.
The Shakarian romance was probably one of the most rewarding ones I’ve seen in Mass Effect so far. And It’s my favorite.
I thought they made awesome bros, they make awesome lovers! Garrus is shown to be so taken with Shepard, and he’s shown to just understand the stress she’s under and despite having his own problems going on he doesn’t need a lot of reassurance from Shepard. In fact, he reassures her.
Shepard is running around saving the galaxy, and I just think of that song “Who’s there to save the hero?” Garrus is. Even if you’re not in a relationship with Garrus, he’s always there for Shepard.
He wants to have a baby with her (although biology won’t cooperate) he wants to be with Shepard. He wants to spend his life with her. He comments on their relationship so much in the Citadel DLC and calls her the love of his life.
Even in ME3 when they meet up again, they show a brief exchange of affection before getting the job done. Once the duty is out of the way they talk about “them” and if anything’s changed.
It made me so sad because it was like Garrus was bracing himself for Shepard to say “I moved on”
But in the end I just couldn’t break it off with Garrus. I still like Kaidan and the Shenko romance…but Shakarian holds a special place in my heart for both Shepard and Garrus.
They’re not even the same species yet watching these two dance, interact, and just be together was just…I can’t even describe it. I fell in love with Shakarian (and Garrus) that I can’t see any other romance stacking up to it.
What was your experience with Shakarian?
I have caught a cold off Lu and it sucks
Dirty peasant >:C
You’re awesome really but my stuffy brain disagrees rn xD
Alvin: I was prepared to keep my promise, mommy~
do you ever get cuddle frustrated? Not sexually frustrated, but just get really frustrated and asdfghklg because you’re not cuddling someone right now and you just really need to feel someone with their arms around you and bury your face in their neck and just feel them close
