Mass Effect 3 Ending (Spoilers)
Catalyst AI: Ah, Commander Shepard, welcome.
Commander Shepard: All right! Still alive, made it this far, bring on the final boss! Is it Harbinger? Tell me it's Harbinger. I finally get to punch Harbinger in the balls!
Catalyst AI: No final boss. Only final decision.
Commander Shepard: ...Wait, you mean the last enemy I get to kill this trilogy was Marauder Shields? That's a bit of an anticlimax. Eh, no big. I'm all killed out this week anyway. Okay, so what's my big decision?
Catalyst AI: Door number one - you control the Reapers, and it kills you and destroys the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: ...Pass.
Catalyst AI: Door number two - you destroy the Reapers, and it kills you and destroys the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: ...Well, I like the idea of destroying the Reapers, but that deal's not sweet enough for me. Pass.
Catalyst AI: Door number three - you combine organic and synthetic life together, and it kills you and destroys the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: ...Y'know, for a trilogy that's selling point is all about getting to make crucial decisions and their different results, I can't help but notice how Hobson my choices are here.
Catalyst AI: You MUST make a choice! There is no other way.
Commander Shepard: Sure there is. I'll just wait for my crew to rescue me. Amount of times I've saved them, it would be only fitting them for them to finally pay me back.
Catalyst AI: No! You must make a choice! It is the only way!
Commander Shepard: Yeah, who says so? You? You haven't even told me what the point of all this is. Why do you make the Reapers kill everyone anyway?
Catalyst AI: It is the only solution. Without the Reapers, synthetic life would eventually destroy organic life. It is inevitable. This preserves the balance.
Commander Shepard: ...So, your perfect solution to prevent synthetics from wiping out organics is to have synthetics wipe out organics?
Catalyst AI: ...Yes.
Commander Shepard: I gotta tell ya, Cattie, that's a really great plan.
Catalyst AI: You think so?
Commander Shepard: Oh yeah, I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it! It's just like when I was worried my house might catch fire, so I burned the thing to the ground, just to be safe.
Catalyst AI: Hey! It IS a good plan! Organic and synthetic life cannot co-exist!
Commander Shepard: What the hell are you talking about?! I just made peace between the Quarians and the Geth. The Quarians! And the GETH!
Catalyst AI: ...Nuh-uh.
Commander Shepard: Yuh-huh. The Geth value free will. They were willing to let the Quarians have their homeworld back, just so they'd be allowed develop freely. In fact, the Geth are even helping the Quarians resettle and bolster their immune systems to free them from the suits, so those two are co-existing the SHIT out of each other.
Catalyst AI: LALALANOTLISTENINGNOTLISTENINGTHEYCANNOTCOEXISTLALALA!
Commander Shepard: Psht. Tell that to Joker and EDI. Those two are probably boning as we speak. ...Heh. "Boning". Get it? It's because his bones are, oh right, you don't know him.
Catalyst AI: Enough! You must make your decision and destroy the mass relays!
Commander Shepard: Fuck no. Destroying a relay causes an explosion the size of a supernova. I'm not gonna cause a nova in every inhabited system in the galaxy. No, if this is the situation, I'd rather my crew rescue me and we look for another way.
Catalyst AI: YOU MUST MAKE A CHOICE!
Commander Shepard: Oh fine, if it'll shut you up. I choose to destroy the Reapers.
Catalyst AI: Destroying the Reapers will also destroy EDI and the Geth.
Commander Shepard: ...What? Why? ...How?
Catalyst AI: Because. It... will. Just, y'know. Because.
Commander Shepard: But they're three completely different entities. Okay, the Geth I can buy, MAYBE, because they have some Reaper code in them. But EDI's nothing like either of them. And you do realize that EDI isn't that body, right? EDI's the Normandy and that body is more like just an extension of herself she projects. To destroy EDI, you have to destroy the Normandy (again) and why the hell would destroying Reapers destroy the Normandy? That's like saying the fall of Berlin would kill Winston Churchill and wipe out the US Navy's Pacific fleet. I mean, that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard, and I've seen the endings to both Lost AND Battlestar Galactica.
Catalyst AI: ENOUGH! YOU MUST MAKE YOUR DECISION! BIOWARE DEMANDS IT!
Commander Shepard: Fine. Wow, I bet the next playthrough is gonna suck knowing none of the decisions I make will have any bearing on the ending whatsoever, huh.
Catalyst AI: Any last words?
Commander Shepard: I'm Commander Shepard and this is my least favourite spot on the Citadel.
Discussing religion with an 11 year old
(Conversation started on why she shouldn't be afraid of witches)
Me: It's easy to not be afraid when you know it's all made up and fake.
11 year old: Witches aren't real?
Me: Well, there are people who call themselves witches - it's a religion.
11 year old: So there ARE.
Me: Not like in movies. That's all fake. It's just another religion.
11 year old: So, like, do they do voodoo?
Me: No, that's a different religion too. Nothing to be scared of.
11 year old: I have a friend that buys those voodoo doll kits, I hate that.
Me: Yeah, those are all fake. You don't have to worry.
11 year old: Yeah, I know. How do you know this?
Me: I like studying religions, I think it's fun. I like knowing what people believe, and learning about it.
11 year old: So, are you Catholic or Christian?
Me: *long pause* none of the above. I just like learning - what's your favorite subject?
11 year old: Oh. Nothing. So are you pres--press--pers--
11 year old: Yeah, so you're Presbyterian?
Me: No... but you know what, I just really like learning. Hey, are you Catholic (knowing she is)?
11 year old: No, I'm both.
casecous: helenoblog: casecous: Kaidan renegade/paragon interrupts Shepard at the end though. Which I really like. I mean, Shepard was always the one taking charge of the relationship because Kaidan was so hesitant in ME1. “I always leave myself a way out.” And in ME3 he realizes there’s no time for that and he can’t let her leave without one last kiss. CASEY WHY BECAUSE YOUR TAGS...
