oh god i love all of them weeps and i haven’t even made one of them yet but HERE GOES
i guess you could say that my “go-to” shepard is halle shepard, a spacer/sole survivor paragon vanguard to the end of time.
her mother is hannah who came from england and her father is dominique who came from haiti. both of them met on a military station up in space idk where and dominique was like “ayy lmao” to hannah and she found that charming and their squad mates were like “yoooo” and then they starter dating and messaging each other when they could since they were always so busy. then they get married and eventually have halle.
halle was always inclined to biotics because of some eezo exposure in the womb despite efforts not to and she eventually goes through biotic training and got the implants despite her parents’ constant worry over her because wow what if something happened to our DAUGHTER but halle came out okay, updating her implants when she can to avoid complications.
in school she did well and made sure to study hard and came up very close to the top of the academy. overall i consider halle
to be a very smart person.
when she was around 16-17 dominique was declared MIA and this upset halle to no end because she’s most attached to her father in that he sat her down and talked about her haitian heritage and culture and she felt more connected with that side than her mother’s. he also taught her hatian creole and sometimes she’ll talk in it but rarely though she still practices. so when he’s declared MIA it upsets both of them a lot but especially halle and they take time off to mourn him bc he’s a swell guy who’s kinda goofy when you meet him but he’s sweet. partly to follow her parents and partly in his honor, halle joins the alliance.
halle’s first mission was akuze and she suffers PTSD because of it. despite getting counseling and all the treatments she could get there are still some things she gets touchy and quiet about and it really shows in me2 when she and miranda are talking and there’s a lot of heat that comes from that. needless to say grunt’s loyalty mission kinda really makes her freak out.
she’s in a polyamorous relationship with both liara and miranda and there’s a long story i have with this (courtesy to anneapocalypse for ruining my life) where basically halle and liara were in a relationship and the halle dies and at lazarus miri and liara had A Thing that stemmed out of miri comforting liara and telling her she’s still so young and has so much left. eventually they break it off for fear of it being awkward for halle. when halle comes back she falls hard for miranda and thinks she’s just swell and wonderful and she talks about her to liara and a lot
of feelings puff up but eventually it settles down and it works out and im a weenie for this it makes me emotional. also halle is a real big sweetheart like she’s v nice and will sit down and listen and talk to
you and she loves liara and miri to death bc they talk a lot about gender stuff with miri being trans and multi-gendered asari (also anne) and halle is like “i have the best partners ever wow they’re amazing” and yeah it’s wonderful and i cry.
mari is my non-binary renegade colonist/ruthless infiltrator shep. they grew up on mindoir after their parents decided to move there to start a life on a colony.
relatively speaking life was pretty normal except mari kept getting misgendered and being addressed as a girl even though they wanted to have they/their/them pronouns and kinda was bitter about it. their parents were accepting though.
in school mari had a thing for stealth and would often steal things from others whether it be food or homework or supplies or whatever and got in trouble often at first but they learned soon how not to get caught and probably raked up a good multi-thousand credit stash of stolen goods by the time they finished schooling. teachers didn’t like mari much because they wanted to find something like their grades to chew them out on but the thing was mari had extremely good grades and worked hard. ironically enough even though they stole other peoples’ work and assignments they never actually cheated off anyone and would probably even correct their classmates’ homework before giving it back to them in a way that made it look like the other students just misplaced it. their favorite places to steal from were teachers’ workspaces/the teachers’ lounge and the cafeteria because hell yeah food.
then mindoir got attacked and it’s kind of a really bad underestimation to say they’re not over it. not only did it horribly traumatize mari because they watched their family get brutally murdered in front of them this also stemmed their extreme distrust in batarians, against whom mari is pretty goddamn racist. instead of recovering and coming out of it in a way that’s positive, mari let the situation overtake them and as a result they’re kind of nasty and bitter to people
they don’t like. they also totally used torfan to get back at them and enjoyed killing them in a sort of sick personal retribution kind of way.
but if you get to know them and manage to develop a friendship they’re fiercely protective. and will do anything to help even if it means dying. mari’s also pretty stubborn and is hard to compromise with, often preferring to solve problems with blunt force than talking, mari does show compassion and saved the council (and then
properly told them to shove the spectre offer up their ass). they consider the normandy and the people on it a part of them and a powerful force to be reckoned with and if threatened mari will just be like “i’d like to see you try.”
mari originally romanced miranda but then it turned to jack and i feel guilty about it but pbbbt. it all stemmed out of anger like “you’re pissed off i’m pissed off too let’s be pissed off together.” and mari understood jacks anger like they just sat down and listened to what jack had to say and didn’t make any attempt to change anything bc jack is under no obligation to change for anyone even the commander. and jacks kinda taken aback like wow no ones ever told me that before and mari isn’t scared of jack bc lbr they could probably really do some damage to one another. at this time too jack imo identifies as genderqueer and is also angry at the lack of they/their/them pronouns and as a result jack and mari are both angry and bitter about that. so their realationship starts out as a cautious friendship/alliance and then it just grows from there and soon they’re kissin and talking about issues that make them worked up and yep.
kade is my paragon earthborn/war hero engineer trans maleshep. he was born on earth but didn’t know his parents bc both of them probably died or st and he lived on the streets for the longest time. as a result he’s very street smart and knows a lot of tricks like how to pickpocket and unlock a lock and all those dandy things. idk if he got any formal schooling but he’s also very smart in regards to the streets and also has a knack for tech, like he would spend his time taking things apart and putting them back together and making new things. he was really looked up to then by the time he joined the reds.
during his time in the reds he committed a lot of petty crimes but also probably did some big things like smuggle drugs and firearms and cause terror to the neighbors and piss off authorities who couldn’t find him. he managed to work his way to some pretty high position and demanded to be addressed as male and no one ever questioned him unless you wanted a fist in your face and grievous bodily harm done to you.
eventually kade realized “hey this is probably a bad idea” and enlisted in the alliance and soon after started testosterone. he was the hero of the skillian blitz and was pronouced a huge hero which he sorta took as a personal way of redemption like “i did all this shit when i was younger but i’m better than that.” at 21 he got top surgery and changed all his paperwork to male though by the time he’s in the alliance and gets his top surgery literally everyone addresses him as male so the transition was fairly easy.
in-game kade romances miranda (do you see a theme here) but he turned a lot to garrus and now they’re dorky nerd boyfriends. he always had a fondness for garrus and viewed him probably closer than maybe what’s considered normal but he didn’t mind. come me2 he realizes that he’s totally crushing on him and makes his feelings clear and at first garrus is all flustered like “WOW WHAT” but then they come together and wow they’re adorable i cry about them a lot. kade also totally has a thing for aliens especially turians but also drell ok bye.
i also have a trans femshep that i haven’t created but her names clara and she’s going to be cute as fuq girlfriends with tali so.
wow this turned out a lot longer than i expected but WOW THANK YOU ANON I LOVE TALKING ABOUT MY GAY BABY SHEPS
probably miri/femshep bc i could have a lot more dynamics with them but wow does miri/samara fucking kill me on the inside and there’s no art for it hA;;;;
im gonna cry tHANK YOU ANON WEEPS
smiles and pulls you close and snuggles you under 69342609026 layers of blankets uwu and kisses ur cheek
yeah, haha. do you have a personal or anything? i mean i love the help and i really appreciate it because i literally have no knowledge of anything like this (or anything really) but i’m glad there are people who do bless
oh good! from what i read, the battery is similar to the ones in watches? like the circular batteries? i guess the sucky thing is that the computer manufacturers don’t really openly label their make and model but a lot of them share a common one. again that’s only from what i read on the internet but hhhhhh i don’t think i’d trust myself tampering with taking apart my computer i mean the closest thing i’ve ever done to actually taking apart my computer was replacing my keyboard sob
so could this be replaced or is it time to trash this one which would suck bc it would be preferable for this to hold off until like at least august or until i get a new one for college bc this one is old (but not as old as my sister’s) and it’s got lots of stuff on it and yeaH but thank you tech anon you are super helpful and nice and GOSH
that kinda thing happened to me, only it was 2009, and google locked me out and thought i was an attacker???????????? like sorry google my computer is just DOING THIS THING THAT I’M CONFUSED AND SORTA SCARED OVER
i thought the cmos battery could be replaced? from what i read, or had read to me because my internet icon basically disappeared but god i hope i don’t screw up this computer more than i’ve done this thing’s been though so much because i’m so clumsy and hard on it LIES DOWN
god i wish i knew more about this stuff instead of just staring at this like “????????????”
breathes heavily i keep letting it die and that probably didn’t help but tHANK YOU ANON IT’S PROBABLY NOT but i’ll sabotage myself and think it’s my fault anyway
