For the past two months I've been debating the urge to produce a video that would cover each Mass Effect title along with the comic Mass Effect: Redemption in order to argue a point that Liara T'Soni's story is incomplete. Since the end the first Mass Effect there has been a continuous building of her character towards a singular direction that contradicts the community's assumption. There exists a plethora of examples that can be used to establish a pattern of this development. However my issue with this comes down to the fact that even though I could, rather easily, produce a video arguing against this preconceived notion it might just be entirely redundant. Fighting against the current while remaining the same despondent fan I've been since late March doesn't create a lot of motivation to simply prove a point. I thought I would mention this to see if someone other than myself understands the dilemma or shares a similar opinion about this character.
