    it is so personal and instinctive! it is a moment of joy and ultimately, vulnerability

    how is it odd or weird that someone would be sensitive to their laugh being mocked

    you just react strongly to any mockery of laughter and it's unusual

    as i said, i have never even heard ppups laugh, so i am just fabricating accusations to hurl at him in the absence of genuine openings

    with enough abuse he will reveal a weakness and i will gouge him

    There is now. Because DK is a monster who transcends reality.

    This is part of the evolution in the ME series. At least with Liara, it totally is the capstone in 1, in 2 it's there but it's murkier and weird, and in 3 I think you have sex a couple of times throughout it, and the real reward is the several minute conversation before the second time about living lives together/the bittersweet goodbye she gives you on Earth.

    I don't think the way romance was handled in subsequent ME games really changes. The dialogue became more nuanced/deconstructive, but it was still Choose Partner A->Conversation Puzzle->Fuck
    That is every Bioware romance since Baldur's Gate. Sometimes the conversation puzzle has traps like 'fuck too early' but it's still the same path with the same I-won-the-sex-sidequest handling.
    I agree that Liara's character became better (for lack of a better word) but you still choose Liara, navigate Liara's Conversation Puzzle, and Fuck.
    I find it tired and insulting.

    But all video game decisions are ultimately either that, or procedurally generated things that are indistinguishable! Also that's how human brians works, you just have more ways to fuck it up and there are sometimes specific things that change the difficulty.

    Chu once told me he hates his speaking voice because he thinks it sounds high and stupid and he wishes it was deeper and smoother and more masculine. So at one point we were on voice chat and I needed an insult because he had just won at something and was celebrating or whatever, and the ole brain was just like: oh there's this from a month ago and hands me a twisted rusty dagger with "ORGANICHU" engraved in the handle. And so I plunged it into his heart, as normal people do.

    But a sex scene is a good way to show that you've progressed to the next level of intimacy in many relationship models! Like not everyone does that and some people fuck first obviously, but it makes sense that that is how relationship progress can be shown? It's also for many people a clear line between 'we are flirting' and 'we are dating'.

    I think one reason the Isabella relationship is good is because the way you know she actually cares is more about conversation and her life choices rather than her sleeping with you--although there's also that of course!

    IIRC you could only do that in the last game? By then the writing had improved immensely. But the phenomenon is definitely, as Mr. Ape says, at least in the older ME's. It's not about the character's personal victory, it's about the fact that you go through the cutesy intro relationship stuff, you eventually have a big crisis or whatever, and immediately before you head off to war or whatever, you fuck.

    Then the romance stops, because you've won at romance! You had sex! There is nothing left congratulations. Also this is what it all built to.

    That kind of thing is very skeevy, perhaps even more so with Liara because she emphasizes her virginity several times and so you have sex and then you've won and there is no exploration after that. Just "that's nice" and that's it. No exploration of how the partner feels from even that case, where they make a huge deal out of it being a big deal.
