    4. you can heal yourself by drinking period blood (from virgins...) because stem cells contained therein

    and that's just some of the more bullshit ones i remembered off the top of my head

    runner's up:

    exterminating all mosquitos ever would have no negative consequences or disrupt eco systems
    vegan diets for cats
    weed cures EVERYTHING (including for your pets)
    'transsexual' animals (most of which are just what would class as intersex, with very few serial hermaphroditic ones in the mix. That maned lioness 'she's trans!!!' post fucking haunts me)
    Feathers on dinosaurs are a conspiracy to make them less cool

    they were, no joke, using a photo of the FRONT teeth of a horse only, without taking any consideration on how the entire rest of the dental setup looks

    Diluted bleach enemas sounds like a good way to fuck a bunch of shit up.

    ok but seriousness:

    1. 'I know. Thank you, Tali' the ME3 writers came right for my goddamn throat on that one like jesus fuck
    2. 'no data available' when prodded about why there's a piece of shep's old armoured welded on them. just a repair my ass
    3. head-hanging shame in ME3 over the part of the Rannoch missions, and Legion being ashamed about his species being idiots
    4. his loyalty mission in ME2 where he realizes that the heretics have changed so much and he can't understand them anymore. he sounds so distressed
    5. the dancing/beatboxing idle animations

    additional legion thoughts, because i was looking at cut scenes again last night:

    legion in me3 fidgets and gestures

    like, in me2, during the confrontation between tali and legion, he stands stock still, apart from some head flat movement.
    In me3, after Shep comes out of the server/consensus and talks to Legion about why the fuck there now is a swarm of geth primes around them, legion moves. He takes little steps left and right, he gestures. and I mean, some of it is off-screen as the conversation oftentimes only shows his head + shoulders, but even then you can tell that there's movement out of frame. and there's bigger movements to.
    And the thing is: all of these gestures are fundamentally wasteful. They serve no purpose except emphasis and like, maybe that's in part just legion getting practice, but tbh they spent most of the time in between games with the rest of the Geth so... i don't think it's practice. I think it's the reaper upgrades that are mentioned to make the geth think 'more organically' and i think in this specific case it meant legion got an more intuitive understanding of how body language works in a bigger context.

    legion one shot is creeping onto page 15. porn will be happening in a separate oneshot because Tone No Fit this one which means...another work.... i still have two wips already sitting in my gdocs. Gdi. I still have probably like 5 more pages to go before I am at a point where I can wrap this up as I want it.

    i gotta come up with a title for the series/collection of works I'll be putting this into because all my mass effect fics are in the same worldstate and technically? kinda connected?

    Verily a very ineffective hitman

    I’m a fan of “no self doxing” rules. You just never know who is gonna be there and if they’re going to remain friendly. I don’t think I can actually prevent people from posting too much information about themselves, but I can certainly draw lines around what I believe will help create a relatively safe environment, and what I’m not willing to take responsibility or make any promises for handling the consequences of. That doesn’t mean I shun a user who breaks the rules and gets burned, but I want to be very clear about what I’m not prepared or able to fix. It’s a safety measure for everyone, because I want users to know what I can’t do for them so that they’re less likely to get hurt by relying on something I can’t deliver, and I’m less likely to hurt myself trying to do more than I should.

    I don’t think absolutely nobody can ever handle that situation, but the vast majority of people at any given time in their lives probably can’t, and it’s a terrible idea to try. It’s either way easier or worse than it sounds, and you won’t know which until it happens, because it depends on the threat actor as much as the vulnerability they’re trying to exploit. Some attackers are not really that committed, or are so vulnerable themselves that deflection is relatively easy. That still won’t matter if you can’t figure out how to take advantage of it. Turning a mob is far more of an art than a science because you won’t have time and information enough to do science during a mobbing.

    It’s not usually acute but manageable stress that would make you a stronger person for overcoming it. The people attacking are going to be trying to undermine you as a person. Every hit they even sort of land is damage to your identity. That doesn’t go away just because you won. And unless you’re so lucky and also skilled that you can afford to use less harmful tactics, which you very likely aren’t if there’s 50 of them and they have your photo and address, you will probably be attempting to do the same thing to them to defend yourself. You pick a person and attempt to rip them to shreds as a warning, or to present an even easier target to the other attackers. It’s not noble. It’s horrific. Everyone comes out of that worse off. It’s not the only way to defend yourself, but it’s probably the most obvious by far.
