It's been a long while since I wrote anything here. The last entry was about my move to a new place. I've been here for a while and I am happy with the place.
I have been going through a lot of personal
issues over the past few months, my relationship of six years came to a
close at the beginning of the year. I won't go into too many details,
but we did not end on a bad note, but after that long it seemed more
like a marriage than just a boyfriend/boyfriend relationship. So that
is one of the reasons that I have not had many drawings as I have been
trying to get over it. I won't say that my work load will increase
right away, but expect more stuff coming.
In a way to try and
keep my mind off of my past relationship I tried to keep occupied with
games. One of the games that I had gotten last year when I built my
computer was the Mass Effect Trilogy. It took me a while to start
playing it, but once I started I was hooked. I have to say the entire
trilogy was one of the best games that I have played before. I love
games that allow you to make moral choices and that those choices affect
either the world around you or yourself. I usually go for evil or in
the case of Mass Effect, renegade. But with Mass Effect 3 you were
allowed to finally have a male/male relationship. I had gone through
the previous games not having a relationship so that I could go for one
of the two guys in the third game. I had the choice between Steve Cortez or Kaidan Alenko.
I had originally planned to go with Kaidan, but as I played the third
game I was torn with Steve as well. But in the end I chose Kaidan. So I
finally got my man on man action. Though personally I would have liked
to have James Vega as one of the options.
that being said I know that there is a lot of fan fiction out there for
Mass Effect and the different male/male relationships are built out. I
would like to know if anyone can give me some links to any sites that
host fan fiction of this nature. I would like to see what others have
thought of these relationships.
Since I loved the games so much, expect to get some Mass Effect fanart at some point in the future.
