Match Made in Purgatory by kharimura Match Made in Purgatory by kharimura
A picture inspired by an amazing fill at Mass Effect kink meme called 'Match Made in Purgatory'.

Aria/Tevos shares the top billing as my OTP in Mass Effect fandom alongside with FemShep/Liara, completely due to that fill. I can only hope that this picture does any credit to the hotness of that fic.

Heh, didn't know Tevos was the name of the Asari Council member until now (assuming you save all their asses in the climax of the first game)! I've only played 1 and 2 so far, haven't finished the second or gotten the third as of yet from only getting into the series this year, heh. But I SO can't wait for next year's "new" one that hopefully stretches into another trilogy, once I finish this one before then! Even if Commander Shepard or perhaps no one else familiar appears; but hopefully there's a distant relative of some of the old characters!

And the "Purgatory" in-title makes me think this is set in the prison ship Shepard saves and recruits Jack from (which'd make sense for Aria, considering she's long been a bad Asari, but dunno how she got paired up with a goody-goody in that story you referenced, if it's not a follow-up to something else or explained within), even if she practically destroyed that ship in her rampage, but the summary and beginning begs to differ. :XD: Anyway, hope you can enlighten me a little, should you choose to reply/spoil things at all! ^^;

I am DYING for Mass Effect Andromeda myself! Can't wait. Mass Effect trilogy is my favorite games ever. EVER.

Anyway, without any massive spoilers, Purgatory in this case is not the ship from ME2 with Jack and all, but it's the name of a bar/club from ME3! So if you haven't played the 3rd game yet, I can understand the confusion. There is a scene in the game itself where Councilor Tevos and Aria interact at the bar, and the writer of that story (along with a bunch of us fans) took that scene and ran wild with it, and ended up with shipping those 2 together. (Hey, I've heard of weaker reasons to ship people...)

Hopefully that clears it out a little, and I wish you luck in your playthrough!

Yeah, it does, thank you! I still have not gotten the third as of yet, but I definitely plan to! I've beaten the second in the time since my comment, plus not looking back to see if you replied, heh.

For some reason, the second didn't quite as excite me maybe as the first one did, but I blame that on my butt taking so long to beat it just once! :lol: Wasn't playing it on Insanity for my first playthrough, but still took me a bit to complete it. Plus, there were so many things DIFFERENT from the first game, even if I didn't remember a lot of that AS I was playing it. The inability to get credits as easily as in the first game (by selling guns and add-ons), the addition of limited ammunition, only being able to use ONE power/ability at a time, not being able to have as many options for custom armor for only Shepard compared to for ALL your squad members, etc. I spent a lot of time throughout wasting a bunch of time scavenging for materials and what have ya (even if funnily enough, I already had gotten enough for every possible research project EARLY ON in the game, heh; though I didn't find any eezo until later on, thinking it wasn't possible to find it using probes), plus doing everything I could AND even getting sidetracked looking for fanart stuff based on the game(s) during my playing it. Even if I didn't know until the end that compared to the first game, you can do what you have left undone AFTER you beat the Collectors! Who I was shocked to learn were once the Protheans... :O_o:

In my first attempt on the final mission, everyone survived BUT Mordin, the Salarian. :( I had done all the missions to gain their trust (even Zaeed, an optional additional recruit; but I didn't get the add-on to add Kasumi since the one with Zaeed and a few other things was free with a code from a new copy, obtained through Amazon :XD:), but somehow, Mordin was the only one unlucky to NOT survive with not being in my party and part of the distraction team... so I redid it with Mordin being the one to escort the captured Normandy crew members back to the ship. And that time, everyone DID survive! And man, did I make it so the Collector base was thoroughly destroyed, so the Illusive Man CAN'T use their weapons or whatever to further Cerberus/humanity's position in the galaxy. And I already spoilered some things a while back, knowing he and Cerberus get in the way in ME3 from the demo, plus reading he becomes indoctrinated and one of Shepard's fights late in the game; though I dunno if that has an effect on the fights with Cerberus and/or him, if you import ME2 save data to ME3 (like I did for my first ME2 playthrough: using one where Kaidan was the one to die, Wrex survived even though I didn't know that was possible until I looked online, the Rachni Queen was spared, and the original Council survived) where the materials on the Collectors base WERE left to survive the detonation or they're automatically default on ME3.

Anyway, to the aforementioned scene: can't remember if I talked a Salarian on Omega, who wanted to get info on Aria's Batarian guard to overthrow her out of it or not, as I increased more of my Renegade score compared to the import data (which was more of a Paragon), but also pretty much maxed out Paragon in this game! :lol: Although somewhat ironically, I did let Morinth be the one to die in the fight with her and Samara, despite how many more points that was worth compared to the Paragon route, heh. Anyway, I dunno if that has something to do with Aria losing her position as ruler on Omega between ME2 and ME3 or not, but either way, I'm sure it doesn't affect the scene in any way.

The game was all very interesting, even the small bit where you get to control Joker and turn EDI into a fully-functional AI, despite his Vrolik's disease (I can't remember if somewhere I read or it was within the game, Cerberus did something to cure or lessen it between when Shepard died and when Shepard was reborn, even if he couldn't run when you control him); despite my lack of excitement for some reason. I definitely shall look to getting the new game sometime this year with the end of the Reaper trilogy, before Andromeda comes out (hopefully, if they don't push it back, like they did for another game series I initially got one of the game systems we need to play the new one; but either way, there's more than just this game that I want coming out later this year for the game systems I own) later this year! :3

PS: Sorry for the length of this! :XD:

Someone on here somewhere, but I forgot who and where, (it might have even been you, lmao) said they didnt know about the Aria/Tevos pairing, but since reading that fic they now, "Ship it like FedEx"... I just wanted to pass that awesome phrase along, as well as re-affirm my undying love for my new favorite pairing, and send a special thank you for everything you've drawn. I am currently following you, and holding my breath for the next Aria/Tevos... well, anything. Picture, fanfiction, youtube video,... anything. Lol, I think I'm a little obsessed with this pairing. O_O

I agree that can be possible :D

I wonder if Aria wasn't de facto asari government agent,sent to take control of Omega...
