Okay, I have a question. It's very possible no one will have an answer, but honestly I'm not connected to any gaming communities and the answers I have seen to this have been less than helpful.

I know there are a handful of people (all female, which is a huge plus,) on my flist who play video games. I've been getting back into them lately, and a couple of months ago I started playing games with romantic interests for the first time. I kind of got hooked.

I've already played Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Knights of the Old Republic and Baldur's Gate 2 (thank you, Bioware. Although, I did download mods for BG2 because Anomen is the biggest douche of a character ever. But I guess they had to start somewhere.)

Are there any other games like this?

By this I mean games where: a) I choose my gender (maybe it makes me an inflexible player, but I know what it's like to play a male main characters all the time and now that's it 2010 I just want to be a girl.) b) There are strong characters/dialogue/options for a love story. and c) A decently strong plot.

At this point I've kind of just given up. I know these games, as a whole, are more designed for men and men aren't really interested in love stories so there don't seem to be many. Maybe I should cling to Bioware and wait for the new Dragon Age and Mass Effect 3 (and keep my fingers crossed for Kaidan's finished story line.)

Day 08 - The pairing with the most baggage?

No dialogue on this on, but come on. Their entire home worlds have been destroyed completely, they're all that's left of humanity, she became president/he came out of retirement, she has incurable cancer and the list goes on and on. Adama and Roslin are epic, and definitely have the most baggage.

Title: Another Day of Things That Can't Happen
Rating: PG
Fandoms: The X-Files and Stargate SG1/Atlantis
Pairings/Characters: Mulder/Scully (UST), John/Elizabeth, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, Rodney McKay.
Spoilers: Set in The X-Files post-Terma although only a small mention to place it there, and Stargate Atlantis post-Lifeline.
Summary: When Dr. Elizabeth Weir turns up in Nevada claiming to be part of a top-secret military program, Mulder and Scully go to investigate.
Notes: The timeline on this is awkward since the years can't synch up quite right. It's season 4/5 Mulder and Scully with Elizabeth post-her canon time on Atlantis. This is an idea I've had for a while, and since scifiland was having a big bang this seemed as good a time as any to write it out.

She said it's in Colorado, actually.Collapse )

Day 07 - The most heartbreaking scene?

Toby: "CJ."
CJ: "Let’s open that bottle of champagne you gave me for my birthday. Maybe the alcohol will balance out the caffeine."
Toby: "CJ, the leak..."
CJ: "Let’s have a toast. One final toast before I leave the White House for my perp walk in leg irons. Here, you open it. I’ll put your eye out."
Toby: "CJ."
CJ: "Fine, I’ll open it. But just, uh, listen to what I have to say. Leo’s in trouble."
Toby: "I know."
CJ: "You do?"
Toby: "I got a lawyer."
CJ: "What?"
Toby: "I got a lawyer. I did it."

(CJ looks at him for a moment before setting the champagne bottle down. She gets up and walks behind her desk and picks up the phone.)

CJ: "Call the White House Counsel’s office, send someone over immediately."
Toby: "I just didn’t want you to think..."
CJ: "We really can’t have any further conversation without Counsel present."

Okay, so this was a tough call because believe it or not I tend to ship people who have a lot of angst. But this? This is absolute betrayal. It's not death where one character couldn't control what happened or just general badness, this moment absolutely changed Toby and CJ's relationship forever. And, in my mind, they were never particularly close again after it. That hurts.

Runners up for this were Adama putting his ring on Laura's finger just after she died/talking to the sunset (but they got to have a relationship, so that's something,) Mulder's silent-cry by Scully's bed during the cancer arc and Fred dying. For the record, I don't count losing Elizabeth in lifeline as a "shippy" moment. That, to me, is a moment that obviously affects the ship but is so much more about Elizabeth... possibly because I am too attached to her as a character. So.

(I decided not to do day 5, because my answer is for a show I don't even watch regularly and it's a little bitchy. So, moving on!)

Day 06 - The best kiss?

John and Aeryn! I love this kiss so much. I love all of their kisses, but I distinctly remember squeeing for joy and cuteness after this one and sighing a 'oh, thank god,' after all the angst before this. The runner ups for this were the first Han/Leia kiss ("You like me because I'm a scoundrel. there aren't enough scoundrels in your life,") because I absolutely love that they keep up their banter literally right until lips are pressed to lips. Also, the Triangle Mulder/alt!Scully kiss in which he was expecting a left. And... you know, every time my ships have ever kissed? This is harrrrd but I wanted to use a ship I hadn't yet. And I love this kiss, so.

Day 04 - The pairing with the most chemistry?

Scully: "You don't need me, Mulder. You never have. I've just held you back. ...I gotta go."
Mulder: "You wanna tell yourself that so you can quit with a clear conscience, you can, but you're wrong!"
Scully: "Why did they assign me to you in the first place, Mulder? To debunk your work, to rein you in, to shut you down."
Mulder: "But you saved me! As difficult and as frustrating as it's been sometimes, your goddamned strict rationalism and science have saved me a thousand times over! You've kept me honest. You've made me a whole person. I owe you everything, Scully, and you owe me nothing. ...I don't know if I wanna do this alone... I don't even know if I can and if I quit now, they win."

Mulder and Scully! Obviously I think all of my ships have a lot of chemistry, but these two came to mind first for having the most. They're epic and awesome and made me hate bees. I mean there were SO MANY scenes to pick from to show how much chemistry they have. I went with this, but also seriously considered the touchstone scene, the one in five billion, any kiss, "I love you" from Triangle, and the list goes on and on. They have so many incredibly smoldering moments that it's just... a hell of a lot of chemistry. :)

Day 03 - A pairing that needs to happen now?

Pete: “Alright, turn around.”
Myka: “Why?”
Pete: “Because, if I'm going to say this to you I can't say it with you looking at me.”
Myka: “I'll turn around.”
Pete: “I can't say it to the back of your head either. (He turns around.) So, uh... Myka you are a stunningly beautiful woman. The day that I met you I said, 'what? I'm not gonna be able to work with her! I won't be able to stop staring at her!' But then I got to know you and I realized that you're even more beautiful than I could see. And if that, you know, little teen fencer could see what a beautiful woman she'd become, she would know that it's her sister who should be jealous. ...Good to go?”
Myka: “Oh, I am good to go.”

Honestly, I don't have any ships on TV shows that are still on and "need to happen now." I like the UST and the build up from friendship to something more. I almost answered Cal/Gillian to this, but they are pretty much already married in my mind. That being said, Pete and Myka from Warehouse 13 are adorable and if, say, they made out? I would not be opposed to it.
