pearwaldorf: shepard and garrus on menae (me - s&g menae)

Mass Effect: Andromeda is upon us, and so is a particular group in Bioware fandom. Like, every fandom has squee-harshers, but I feel like the Bioware ones are especially vocal and anticipatory. Bioware fandom was pretty chill when I joined Tumblr, but the announcement and lead-up to Inquisition was one of the weirdest periods of my (very long) fandom life.

Fretting about the thing is normal, but istfg people were thinking up shit to worry about. About two weeks before release, it seemed like my entire dashboard was climbing the walls just for something to do. This was, of course, before I learned to curate ruthlessly. I think it's been a lot better leading up to Andromeda because of that. But there's still been some stuff, and it just bums me out. I mean, some of it is Bioware (y'all. Have you ever seen a straight woman with a side shave like Cora's?), but a lot of it feels like people wanting to tear the game down before it even has a chance to do its thing.

I want to see people be happy and excited about new canon, however they felt about the ending of ME3. I want to hear about their Ryders, what they know about them now and what they hope to discover later. I want to know who they want their Ryders to bang, and who they want to bang. I don't think that's too much to ask. There will be plenty of time after the game is out to bitch about its flaws.
