Anonymous asked: Hi! I was wondering if you (or maybe any of your followers) had any idea whether Ashley ever says exactly when her father died? I assume it was before she enlisted/before her story about her youngest sister takes place, but I'm working on a fic about her/Shepard/Kaidan & want it to be as canonically accurate. If you could give me your thoughts it'd be great!
My memories are a little hazy now, but I do recall a conversation where Ashley explains her family history, talks about how they were treated in the military, and how she was so stubborn to enlist despite all that. I think it’s there that she mentions that, when she got promoted (to gunnery chief? idk, maybe smth below), the first thing her father did was salute her. So yeah, that would mean he was still alive when Ashley enlisted, and even got to witness some of her success.
I’m not sure when exactly the story about Sarah takes place though.
Hey, guys? Got Anything to add?
Guys, I need help
I just might loose it at this point.
So, imagine, Virmire is finished, you’re going through debriefing, then stay alone in that room.
Does the LOVE THEME ALWAYS play at this point as background music?
In my case, on PC, with m!Shep, it keeps playing when I save Ashley, but when it’s Kaidan there’s only the usual Normandy track.
I was absolutely positively sure that it played each and every time, no matter who you saved. I figured the change was caused by my upgrading the game with patch 1.02.
But now I tried reinstalling the older version of the game, loaded my old saves, but the sad music only plays with Ashley on board just the same.
I really don’t know anymore, I’m completely and desperately lost. I just can’t believe that I only imagined (so vividly) the theme playing in both scenarios. Am I loosing my mind? It’s driving me crazy!
Has anyone who plays on PC ever noticed this?
okay, so in order to keep the real Virmire tag nice and clean, I made yet another one:
Yes, I’m also collecting people’s pained reactions to this event :3
Now it should be easier to share the feelings :]
