for a group inhabited by sexist neckbeards prone to whining when they aren’t given a flaw-free, heterosexual gaming experience, there really was no other choice for my favorite fandom. i’ve never given so much of myself and gotten so much in return from anything else. this fandom has opened my eyes to a lot. it’s inspired me to do a lot, to do more, to branch out. and it introduced me to the love of my life via a group dedicated to a dying alien assassin covered in scales. i may not always agree with the decisions bioware makes as a company, but i will never regret buying kotor. i will never regret spending hours on the old bioware boards. i will never regret the tears i put into each game and the amount of times i’ve found myself laughing to myself, alone, in the middle of the night. i’ve created a bond to the characters, to the stories, and to the fans, and it’s one that won’t be broken.
