So according to the Renegade dialogue in ‘I Remember Me’, Colonist!Shepard’s family homestead got hit with an airstrike because they resisted?
JFC. I only learned about this courtesy of faejilly today.
Way to bury that information, BioWare. (Really, though. Even Ada tries to be kind to Talitha—I’ve never taken the Renegade dialogue there).
artillery strike, actually, as I typed the wrong word the first time, and those are actually quite different things. (I should go edit that.) BUT YES. Well hidden. Vitally important detail.
(I played the whole game through the first time without getting a good idea of what ‘ruthless’ meant, too. Boo.)
This is a thing that is true.
springagainafter also found a neutral dialogue that explains it as well I think.
Yep! Wonderful multiple choice options here. I love it.
The artillery-strike-+-Shep-got-crushed-by-their-house/some sort of building (although it being their house makes the most sense to me) dialogue happens after you pick the Intimidate option after the “my childhood” option with Talitha
Shepard: I fought (*punches fist into palm on “fought”*). My whole family fought, and got hit by an artillery strike for their trouble. I got buried under rubble. If they saw me they left me for dead.
You can also get the artillery strike reference even if you don’t have enough Renegade points (I never do) by picking the neutral option in that same place.
Shepard: We were trying to evacuate people. The slavers hit us with artillery. When I woke up, I was the only one alive. They must have thought I was a corpse.
Regular Paragon and Renegade and the Charm option don’t mention artillery.
Paragon at the same spot:
Shepard: An Alliance patrol arrived in system before they found me. The slavers never caught me.
Shepard: For a while I was broken. I lost my whole family, Talitha. My friends, my childhood. I had to pick myself up and keep going.
Shepard: Some say I am broken. I kill aliens for a living. To protect humans from them.
My favorite is Intimidate or neutral because wow, go Shepard’s family.
Whoever came up with the idea of putting that crappy balloon series instead of random items into balloons on New Leaf needs to be fired immediately
idk i just like the thought of Hannibal buying Will clothes
and then helping him take them off
Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion:
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!
