AH, I HAVE DISCOVERED WHY I HATE YOUR GUTS.
this… this explains some things.
I’m not crying.
For a guy who hates philisophical shows, he sure tries to make a lot of shows that TACKLE CORE PHILISOPHICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT REALITY AND THE HUMAN CONDITION A LOT. (And then abandons them).
Maybe that’s why he didn’t realize that Khan Noonien Singh is a Northern Indian Sikh.
DRAGON AGE: ORIGINS – lonely protagonist runs errands while babysitting group of poorly socialized murderers in order to kill dragon and save country.
DRAGON AGE 2 – lonely protagonist runs errands while babysitting group of poorly socialized murderers in order to get money and blow up city.
MASS EFFECT – lonely protagonist runs errands while babysitting group of poorly socialized alien murderers in order to stop bad guys and save galaxy.
MASS EFFECT 2 – lonely protagonist dies, still has to run errands while babysitting group of poorly socialized alien murderers, working with bad guys to save galaxy.
MASS EFFECT 3 – lonely protagonist mostly cracks under pressure of running errands while babysitting group of poorly socialized alien murderers, some of whom die, not knowing who the bad guys are, still trying to save galaxy.
so if you thought babysitting wasn’t awesome, then you’re probably not doing it the bioware way.
every time i try to explain..
REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD READ THE ABHORSEN CHRONICLES:
- BADASS FEMALE PROTAGONISTS: from Sabriel the prefect of an all-girls school to Lirael a shy librarian both of whom turn into duty-bound zombie killing soldier priests who rescue princes and battle necromancers and fight against what is effectively a trapped god, you can keep your Hermione’s and Katniss Everdeen’s thanx (and can we just talk about how the girls in the school TOTALLY JUMP INTO HELP THE SOLDIERS AGAINST KERRIGOR DESPITE KNOWING THEY’RE PROBABLY GOING TO DIE??)
- INCREDIBLE WORLD BUILDING: set in two neighbouring kingdoms - one resembling 1930’s britain the other a medieval fantasy realm that’s fallen into anarchy plagued by Death NOT TO MENTION the world-weary soldiers manning the wall who are sick of your necromantic bullshit
- TALKING ANIMAL COMPANIONS: not as cheesy as you think, since one is a sarcastic cat spirit who is scary as fuck when his true form is revealed and the other a wizened grandmotherly-like dog who rips out undead throats
- COOL MAGIC: though it’s complicated it isn’t once confusing and you can’t beat dual sword-and-bell wielding, bells that can land you into death modeled after the Egyptian afterlife
- GREAT CHARACTERS AND DEVELOPMENT: all the characters are forced to carry a duty and some succeed whilst others don’t but that’s okay because being born into a society doesn’t necessarily mean you belong there
- GOOD ROMANCE: it’s subtle and forged out of friendship and trust and doesn’t define any of the characters or control any of the events in the story
- NEW BOOKS COMING SOON: including Clariel which is a prequel based on Chlorr of the Mask WHO WAS AN ABHORSEN WHO TURNED EVIL!! like how awesome does that sound give me all the downward spirals for female necromancers AND there’s apparently going to be a sequel to the series too!!
- POSSIBLE FILM IN THE MAKING: which means if you wanna get on that fandom first get on it now
- IT’S JUST REALLY GREAT?? despite it being marketed as a YA book it’s still riveting and mature enough for older audiences (I think I might appreciate it more now that I’m older tbh) just UNF
