Whenever someone draws me anything I try my hardest to write a really appreciative comment, but truthfully I never feel like it’s enough. I always worry that I am coming off ungrateful! My other fear is that I might come off insincere.
It is actually really impossible for me to convey in words how sweet it is when someone draws me something. I know, for many people, it seems like it’s such a throwaway thing because it’s ‘just a picture’. But I think about the fact that someone had to sit down and spend their time on something solely for me. Time is something you never get back! Not to mention effort haha. Also, art is pretty personalised, especially if it’s something of your own, like a character.
I really love getting art for this reason & I always hope that people know that I appreciate it - even if it’s a gift, trade or commission, I really love it all the same and I appreciate all the time and effort that went into it!
“Best years of my life! Wake up with ideas, talk over breakfast, experiments all morning. Statistical analysis in the afternoon, run new simulations during dinner, set data runs to cook overnight. Laughter, ego, argument, passion! Galaxy’s biggest problem! Massive resources thrown at us, got anything we wanted!”—Dr. Mordin Solus, about working on the modified Genophage project (via relay314)
Derogatory names for the krogan and the other ME races
So I’m almost to the point where I’m starting my ME comic but there’s one thing I need help with. One of the characters -Kexet- is a total space racist who hates krogan. He has a lot of monologue that talks about the krogan.
Well what I’m trying to say is, I need you guys to help me come up with racial slurs/insults/derogatory names for the krogan. You’d think a race as feared and distrusted as the krogan would have a few ugly names but not once in the games do I recall any creative racial insults thrown at any race other than referring to them as their species.
The only things I’ve come up with are:
Plate face (though that suits a turian better)
I’m not satisfied with any of these so if anyone can think of creative slurs for the krogan I’d be super happy. (And names for the other ME races would be useful as well)
(I spend waaayyy too much time thinking about these things. I proably shouldn’t(Krogan forgive me ILU but I have to do this for science))
