The Love Interest by Mwar The Love Interest by Mwar
Yes, I love Kaidan, but I've been down that road before with Carth, and it ends in Angstville.

Give me Garrus any day of the week. ;D *totally hopes she isn't the only one who spent half the game talking to Garrus and staring at his backside*

*whistles innocently*

Shepard: *take elevator to mako deck. Walk past Wrex, ignore Williams and go straight to Garrus*
Garrus: *starts talking*
Shepard: *nodding in agreement, too busy staring at Garrus*

Shepard: *take elevator to crew deck. ignore samara, ignore thane, go to garrus and talk to him*
Garrus: *talk about blowing off steam*
Shepard: How about we skip right to the tiebreaker?
Garrus: O//////////O Okay.

And the romance builds up.

You are far from the only one who spent the game talking to Garrus and staring at him.

I saw him as a love interest in the second game and now that I have my hands on the first one I'm so upset since I have to wait until the second one to be romantically involved with him.

If you want spoilers here: [link]

I watch it all the time. ^.^'

Mmmm, Garrus... *trails off* I'm sorry, what was I... Oh yeah! Love it. Gotta fave. Definitely. :+favlove:

Not alone there. He is one nice piece of Alien arse <3
lizreay Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2010
Not by a long shot. I've had a total voice-crush on him since game 1. Bad enough that I actually wrote my first piece of fanfiction erotica in a decade.

Hawtness. And your character and mine look an awful lot alike... I think I see my new wallpaper. (Hopefully the hubby won't be too affronted...)
Lyrindonna Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2010
trust me, you aren't the only one. XD Supposedly, from rumor, Garrus WILL be a love interest in ME2. BUT! That's just a rumor that I'm hoping to be true.


Onto the drawing! I love it. You can really feel the emotion between the two. The colouring is quite simple, but it's fantastic, nonetheless. The shading is great, and I love how you can see the shiny-ness of the armour.

Keep up the wonderful work!!!

I am!! I've been working on it in the game.
It's so great!

-coughs and waves over at you-
I may be a girl, but even playing as male Shepard, I STILL did it. XD

Great art, by the way!
I love atypical couples. <3

I LOVE this game, but I did find it very strange that the only alien you could choose to fall in love with was humanoid. It would have been interesting to have the option of forming a relationship with whomever on the crew you choose to develop it with.
zafara711 Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
I wasent to happy either when a frined of mine told me he wasent one of the options.
MirojTeehl Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009
Dear Bioware,

Why wasn't Garrus a romance option?


A Fan.
adoptaclone Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2009
I wanted a FemShepard x Garrus romance too, I was so sad when I knew it wasn't possible :( some people say it's because he's an alien, but come on, male players are so happy to have sex with an Asari, so why don't BioWare please the female fans, too? that's unfair! :(
PlushKraken Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
"Oh - just kiss already!!" :XD:

Damn, I love how pretty your Shepard looks in this picture. Pretty little red-head. :drool:
And how they hold each other close together. :aww:

You're so true about Carth-clone and his angstiness. :roll: Garrus, Wrex and Tali are so much more interesting.
UltimateBrainwasher Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2009
Weeeeeell.... Waddya know, our mister 'Justice shall be done' can be romantic too, eh? Kinda curious how thhis pairing will work out...

What can i say? Garrus just does it better ;)
Sabress Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009  Hobbyist
if Garrus comes on the market in ME2, Kaidan is sooo having an "accident"... *shifty eyes*
Emmers07 Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2009
lol I know right.
I mean geez, Kaidan was such a whiny little girl and so emo. He also yelled when I was standing right in front of him and then I would turn to Garrus and he is like "*insert a calm and collected Garrus quote that me me fan girly*" XD
Bioware better as heck have him as a love interest or else they will have lots of angry fan girls. o_o
brokenpassions Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2009
I always thought he was the type to ';prr' or something.
The-Shady-Lady Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2009
>.> You are totally not the only one. Everytime it showed at the top of the screen 'Talk to Garrus' I was like, A, A, A, A, A!

I guess we will all just have to live in our imaginations of a Shepard/OC/Turian or what ever else there is romance. And then sketch it out and write fanfictions!

I wonder how many fangirls (and maybe guys because Garrus is just that awesome >.>;) protested on the game for not having the romance option with the infamous Turian. >.< Haha.
Mwar Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2009   Digital Artist
It was really funny for me especially because I'd been attached to Carth in KotOR, but in Mass Effect I was all "Shut up Kaidan, I need to talk to Garrus some more <333" XD

I wish I could find some good Mass Effect fic, but I suppose I just don't know where to look, haha.
The-Shady-Lady Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2009
Haha. XD I was the same way. In the ship I would just hop on down to the bottom and blow off Kaidan. Not my type >.>. All I would get out of Garrus is like:



Not now, Commander! (insert gun fire here X3)

Same here. is pretty good normally, though I have yet to look up Mass Effect Fics. It would be my best guess other then fan sites. >.> If I find anything I will definitely send it your way, hun.
Saqism Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2008
Garrus was hands down the coolest character in the game.
KotoriRod Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2008
KAWAII! GARRUS-KUN! I did wish he was a romance option when i was playing Mass Effect. I was talking to him alot but... sniff snif... TT~TT

*whispers* don't worry... you weren't the only one looking at his backside... GAH!
DrowVisionary Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Augh, I really hope there's some kind of chance to romance it up with him in ME2 :( Come on, Bioware, pleeeease?
Sara595 Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2008
you are not alone, I have to looked at Garrus butt for most of the game:highfive:. muhahaha, to bad you can't really do it.
Zenomezz Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes I know how you feel. I too love Garrus and was talking to him alot, plus staring at his cute butt. :aww: I really do wish that the game aloud you to have Turian romance. But alas, they DIDN'T!!! >:( Grrr! How could they not? Turians are so smexy!

im also a dedicated garrusx fem shep person ^.^ ive probably played that game 5 times and everytime i want to be able to pick garrus. i mean, come on! we need us some variety! we either choose kaiden or liara. they r both nice and all but i want garrus more >.< and we should band together ^.^
SnapesGem Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2008
I'm a Garrus lover too, nice job :D xxx
tschudin Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008
YES!!!Garrus is the most amazing creature in the ENTIRE Universe, real or other.

( I would continuesly stare at him while he was in his little corner; I would walk right behind him, turn the camra to face him, and look at Garrus's "WTF are you doing commander?" face he would have on )
Mwar Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008   Digital Artist
Haha, sounds a lot like I would do. I was rather morose after completely his sidequest when he wouldn't talk to me. A tragedy to be sure.
tschudin Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2008
Indeed, once he started to repeat "Commander, I just want to thank you...BLAHBLAHBLAH" I felt like I was married to my lover, but then my lover got in an accident, and can only repeat the same sentence...I hope bioware keeps him around so that he can be SEX'D UP

I love it so much. I especially loved how you captured such a tender moment in their faces. It's all in the eyes. I can't stop staring at Garrus's eyes.

Thanks! I spent a long time trying to get their eyes to sit right, and I'm glad it worked. :)

Mwar Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2008   Digital Artist
I've got a feeling there might be a lot of us. We should band together and let Bioware know what we demand in a sequel. xD
