well paul played most of it i mostly watched him but i did play some once i got the hang of the system more but anyway i just played default mshep as an infiltrator and i boned liara and paul ended up killing kaiden bc he doesn't like him but i kind of wanted to kill ashley because holy jesus that girl just would not shut up OH AND WE GOT FULL PARAGON/CHARM AND PAUL HAD NEVER GOTTEN THAT AT THE END BEFORE SO WHEN SAREN SHOT HIMSELF WE WERE BOTH JUMPING OFF THE COUCH SCREAMING "WHAT THE FUUUUCK"
I’m automatically like NO MY BABY when people leave Kaidan on Virmire “because they don’t like him” because usually they don’t like him because he’s “whiny” when he really just has a lot of shit going on but that’s another story
I didn’t really jive with Ashley at all, she’s aggressive in a way that really gets to me a lot and also I just learned in my last file that she says some super super rude shit if Shepard is romancing Liara— that all said I do appreciate her as a character like in the scheme of things and where she fits with the rest of the crew (and I have a file that’s The Full Ashley Romance so hopefully she’ll grow on me more later on, I liked her marginally more when romancing her ‘cause you see a broader spectrum of her personality) but I still have only saved her twice in like… five? six? playthroughs? bc Kaidan is Space Husband One Of Three
ALSO YEAHHHHH YEAH THAT OUTCOME is actually the one I usually get, I’m not sure if I ever haven’t but I’m incredibly particular about maxing out whatever morality path I’m on except that one time in ME2 when I tried to paragade and it was a complete disaster and everything went wrong but that is also another story
Congratulations your life is officially over, there’s no escape now
