Leviathan: Leviathan

And so, we finally come face to face with Leviathan.

Leviathan then sends Shepard to some place that looks exactly like the place where Link meets Dark Link in Ocarina of Time.

What? What. Look at this shit, deny it:

Okay, the Leviathan area might be bluer, but still, damn, look at it.

PS, when I was searching for that, do you know how much, and I quote, "Dark Link x Reader" porn came up? JFC Internet.

Leviathan appears to Shepard and cycles through the form of Ann Bryson, Dr. Bryson, and Dr. Bryson's assistant. Why those three characters? I don't think Leviathan ever even posessed Dr. Bryson. If you're in the deepest recesses of Shepard's head, wouldn't Garrus or Joker or whatever be talking to her?

I think the answer is that Bioware couldn't reliably tell who would be dead or alive by the time you hit Leviathan, so they picked some NPCs instead of risking it.

This is, by the way, the part where I talk about keeping all of Leviathan's dialogue in tact, but there is a ton. I've edited it down this time.

Back in the diving mech, now Shepard has a nosebleed, because she's in an anime and has an erection I guess.

Let us now attend to the origin of Leviathan.

And maybe the origin of some other Mass Effect stuff.

... wait, that sounds --

Aside from the Morning War, and also EDI, I'm pretty sure I've yelled about this before.

I'm not sure which drawing I like better, the big eyed baby reaper or the big eyed baby reaper drawing the knife on Leviathan.

... I really love that we took the time to connect all of this to Mass Effect 2.
