In the beginning the Rings of Power were created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
As much as I hate Rita Skeeter, I appreciate her focusing on Dumbledore’s Army gossip for the entirety of the Quidditch World Cup Final giving us more tidbits about all of our faves since Ginny Potter is a dedicated reporter who remains professional at all times —
That’s my girl.
okay so fairyflockmother prompted this
i’m gonna try to tell y’all about how awesome elcor are because YOU DON’T KNOW
BIOWARE DOESN’T KNOW
god they don’t know they are the most wasted opportunity in a game covered in failure to recognize what they had created
elcor are the kindest, most courteous people in the galaxy
think about this: elcor bodies developed to cope with an environment where a given mass weighs more than five times what it would on earth. their bones must be nearly unbreakable for them to be such tall massive animals
maybe you’ve seen videos of how bouncy we are on the moon with our very strong legs. maybe you’ve seen videos of how freely elephants move in water. keep those in mind and imagine elcor on the praesidium in the citadel where gravity is less than one fifteenth what they’re used to.
fortunately for everyone in the galaxy, elcor find nearly everyone completely fucking adorable (since no one at all presents a credible physical threat without very heavy weaponry) and take extreme precautions to avoid hurting anyone inadvertently
i headcanon that elcor toes are hoofed with a very strong grip, like goats have, only they walk on their knuckles kind of like sloths. manicures for them involve power tools and industrial abrasives and are considered as basic a need for elcor living off dekuuna as a breathable atmosphere to compensate for the lack of wear on them. they tend to wear mass effect gear to increase their apparent mass to make up for the lack of weight but all agree it’s no substitute for a proper gravitational field.
salarians have spent centuries, and fortunes, approximating the material properties of dekuunan animal tissue. laboratory-grown elcor knuckle-pad skin makes very effective heavy armor. krogans will pay handsomely for unpowered armor made from the stuff.
(i like to imagine young krogan meeting elcor for the first time and just completely losing their shit. there’s this person and you can hit them as hard as you can and they just keep going all “with genuine affection: your people are always so energetic, ho ho ho” and it drives krogans up the wall.)
when elcor choose to fight they should be terrifying, unstoppable.
the game treats elcor warriors as jokes and i hate it so so so much.
damn i love this post ^__^
When Lily Evans told James Potter that she wouldn’t go out with him because he was a bully, he stopped bullying people and redeemed himself. When Lily told Severus Snape that she wouldn’t go out with him because he called her a racial slur, he went on to join a racist terrorist group.
Conclusion: James Potter handled rejection much better than Severus Snape does.
