FOLLOW or REBLOG on Tumblr, thank You!

-----------------------
EDIT: It would be nice to know if You use or repost this picture anywhere :) Let me know in the comments!
-----------------------
I've been having all sorts of fanfiction idea for Mass Effect for weeks now... now that *SumireHaikuXNA was so awesome to make a model for my OC, Danielle, I can put some of those ideas into images :D
EDIT: Just to clarify - Danielle is not my custom Shepard, she is an OC, a doctor on the Normandy crew :)

Special thanks to:
PabloPicasso - for Garrus' Vakarian model
*SumireHaikuXNA - for putting together Danielle :heart:
Creators of XNALara - where the models were posed.
Final touches were made in Photoshop, background was cut out from a screenshot of Normandy.
Models and characters belong to BioWare, Danielle in general belongs to me.

I think I might be writing some fanfiction soon too...

PS.
Make sure to check this awesome image by SumireHaiku! Citadel date

Very nice, I'm thinking this must be when she is with Cerberus since her hair is against regs.

Against what regulations? Are there regulations for hair length amongst medical personnel? (as strict as those military ones, of course)

In some cases, there are. Depends on where they work, what field they work, etc. If this is your Shepard OC and working in the military (even as a health professional) hair length is, of course, under regulation.
Surgeons, for example, may be mandated to keep a manageable hair length so they can tie it up and tuck it away at a moment's notice.

*cough* If You had read the description, You would know she is not a Shepard, surgeon or not. ;)
Besides, I could never understand why people would rather pretend Shepard can be a surgeon (while the only sensible role for Shepard in ME is being the saviour of the universe), than create a perfectly sensible random OC for that role. And pair them with a canon character, why not?

You'd be surprised how many OC Shepards I see with long hair, despite being military.
So, I suppose it's summed up to two things.
*cough*
1. There are a lot of Shepards out there with long hair created by teenagers...
2. It was 2am and reading several paragraphs of text is beyond my capabilities at that hour.

1. Now I'm wondering if You're assuming I'm a teenager. That would actually be kind of a compliment...
(I don't approve of long-haired Shepards. There's a reason why BioWare didn't let us choose from braided hairstyles.)

2. Late hour doesn't really excuse overlooking an author's attempt to communicate with their viewer, don't you think? ;)

No, I'm not accusing you of being a teenager. It was merely a statement.

For me, late hour excuses everything. Including laziness. ... and long hair. :p

Nothing excuses long hair - it's not the matter of being tired, but the matter of ignoring rules. Ignoring rules is bad! ;)

Hee-hee, I wonder what sort of calibration he's doing right now with Dany <3

Hah, for a moment there I thought I was seeing Lara Croft from Tomb Raider. :D I wonder what Garrus would make of her, he he.

Nice piece. :)

You're welcome! Lol, really? :D Yaaay! :)

By the way, if you got to that point (as the title goes), how did you feel about it? I had real trouble saying yes to it since I basically love all turians. But of course I wouldn't say no to Garrus. :)

Frankly, I had no trouble XD The whole point of me starting ME as a whole, was to romance Garrus :) There is no saying "no" to that sexy, purring voice of his XD

(Not saying that I don't have a turian fetish, though. I do. I always feel an urge to wave at every turian I pass on Citadel :D)

Ha ha, awwww. :) When I started ME nearly two years ago now, I didn't know anything about it, it was just a really cheap old game I bought on a hunch and fell in love with it instantly. I was a bit annoyed that I couldn't romance my favourite crewman at all in the first game .. and of course the way Garrus' story developed in ME2, I was sold ...

He's the best character ever and I 'blame' much of that on his incredible voice actor. :)

Lol, I always sneak up to each one of them, pull out my rifle and zoom in on their faces from a few feet away. Second best thing to jumping them and hugging them. ;)

Sorceress-Nadira Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Such a pity You cannot actually jump and hug them XD But then again, I guess Garrus might be a little jealous ;)

I fell in love with that voice even before I started playing or actually saw Garrus. It's my boyfriend's fault. He played ME3 without headphones and every time he went talking to Garrus I was like: "Oh gosh, there's that awesome purring voice, what was his name again?" XD And then I decided to put aside my hatred for shooting and try. I fell in love with the whole Galaxy within minutes (even though my shooting skills needed a few days before I stopped dying because of enemies flanking me...)
I was so disappointed Garrus was not available for romancing in the first part! I cannot tell You how much I wanted to skip to ME2 XD But I was a good Shepard and I saved the Galaxy first. Duty, heh...

Ha ha, agreed! :D Lol, I'd probably do it JUST to see his reaction. If I did, I'm sure it'd feel only natural to him when I finally set my sights on him in ME2! XD

Yay, that's a good way of getting into turians. :) I started playing ME nearly two years ago myself, didn't know a thing about the critters or the universe but all it took was for me to set eyes on Nihlus ... and the rest is history. :D But Garrus is something special, I'm not sure I would have fancied him in particular if not for that amazing voice!

He he, I was pretty seasoned on shooters myself so I didn't have that problem, but I only recently started using powers .. Before, I treated Mass Effect as just another shooter, but thanks to ME3's multiplayer I finally realized how fun powers can be. :)

Right, of course. Duty must come first of course. :) I was so lucky that the first guy I decided to recruit upon starting up ME2 was Archangel, lol. His dossier just sounded most interesting. And as soon as I heard a merc said Archangel's a turian, I was sold, regardless of whether or not he'd actually turned out to be Garrus or not.

Everything about Garrus is special, starting with his voice (probably the only turian who purrs when he speaks) right onto his amazing personality and adorable awkwardness in romance :) The only shameful thing is that Bioware didn't decide to undress him XD

Oh, I am a power abuser, I think :) I started playing as Sentinel because I figured my shooting was going to be so awful, I'd have to resort to all other powers to survive... and basically I was right :) As the game progressed I was relying on my guns (and on my crewmates) a little more, but I kept playing with the same class through all three games... and right now that I started a playthrough with m!Shep, he has the exact same class too :)

Ah, I was already spoilered enough to know that Archangel was Garrus' alias... Couldn't stop laughing when he said "Just Garrus to you, Shepard" XD I think he kinda feels about this alias as I would - has a nice ring to it, but gosh... could've been a BIT more dark xD

Oh, btw. I recently realised why I'm so into all the turians in game. The designer himself admitted that all turians in game have their heads based on Garrus' - just with different markings and with no visor XD

Well, it cannot be available for Shepard, since Shepard is basically military... Danielle is basically a medic ;)

I've always wanted a medic class. In me1 I was a sentinel because they were kind of like medics. I hope you show us more of Danielle. I really like her.

Thank You! ^.^ I'm hoping to finally sit down and write a fanfiction for her :) And there will be more pictures for sure.

And medic does seem an interesting choice for a class! If only dr Chakwas was playable, lol!
