I did little but write fanfiction for Mass Effect. My history with the character (Liara) I'm writing for has been strange. At first, I didn't think so much about her, she was just there, fulfilling her role in the game as destined. Then, I began wondering, began probing, began dissecting. Each little word uttered by her came under scrutiny, and I began to write about her, not because I loved her, but because I had a desperate need to understand her; others seemed to appreciate my obsessiveness, too. These days, however, I think I've come around to loving her dearly.
