    Mass Effect:

    First, it still takes several days to transit most mass relay pairs -- it's not 'near-instant'. It's still much, much faster than normal FTL travel, but the distances are usually in the thousands or ten of thousands of light years, so it takes a day or two even at 100,000x light speed. That's why Shepard has lots of time to go strike up random conversations with the crew, people have time to play cards, etc, because they're all basically sitting around twiddling their thumbs waiting to reach the other end.

    Mass Effect seems pretty inconsistent on this point; as I said, there seems to be lots of downtime between missions, but all the jump we actually see seem really fast: the jump during the opening cut scene (to Eden Prime) and the jump through the Omega 4 relay both only takes a few seconds. Shepard is in battle armor when they prepare to jump through the Omega 4 relay, indicating she doesn't expect to go to bed before reaching the other end, and Nihlus watches Joker make that first jump. And I'm pretty certain there was a codex entry describing mass relay transit as 'near instant'. But those don't make sense with the amount of downtime you seem to have during transit, so I'm ignoring them.

    Secondly, if you choose the Control ending, the ascended Shepard continues to talk to Kaidan Alenko (this is my headcanon, so Shepard's love interest is Kaidan, Kaidan, Kaidan), and eventually she gets an EDI-like body for physical contact with him. I mean really, why wouldn't she? (She's read Watchmen so she's careful to intelligence-limit the part of herself that controls the body to avoid a Dr. Manhattan / Laurie-style drifting apart.)

    Oh, and third, if she was romantically involved with Kaidan in ME1 and then renews the relation in ME3, once they admit they love each other, Kaidan pretty much moves into Shepard's room. You just don't see that because the game skips over the ship's nighttimes during transit, and during the day, Kaidan doesn't hang around the room because Shepard needs to work, and because they're technically breaking the fraternization rules and Kaidan doesn't want to get Shepard in trouble. They were pretty much up to the point of considering marriage "after this is all over" when they hit Earth. (I found the romance track where the two of you declare that you're in love, and Shepard even says "We need to get back to the Normandy ASAP" -- as in, I need to go sleep with you right now -- and then you don't show any signs of physical affection for 10 missions until right before the Cerberus mission to be really jarring and disappointing. So I'm just assuming they were physically affectionate but were hiding it when in sight of the other crew.)

    2B's executioner programming is subconscious--she doesn't know about it, and doesn't remember all the previous times she's killed 9S. It still affects her feelings toward him, playing into why she always tries to distance herself from him emotionally and discourage him from investigating things too closely (though that also actually is her normal personality), but with the memories suppressed, she rationalizes those instincts as just having lost too many loved ones to the war and wanting to protect him from the same fate. 9S isn't supposed to retain the memories either, but they've started to surface by the end as his systems break down (A2 guesses that he knows based on his reaction when she tells him, but he's only realized it recently and is still kind of in denial about it at that point).

    This was my assumption when the reveal happened because of the one sidequest with the other E-series who'd lost her memories. To me, that suggested that executioners are commonly sleeper agents, which would make sense for keeping their morale up and preventing them from going insane with guilt. Memory manipulation and loss is a big theme in the game as a whole, which I think supports it further. The fact that this being true would allow me to keep enjoying my adorable story about 2B and 9S getting to know each other and falling in love without the underlying horror (mostly) has no bearing on things whatsoever. Stop looking at me like that.

    If you haven't played this game, please do, because it's amazing and deserves all the attention and money.

    Daggerfall: the War of Betony was actually fought over for the Totem of Tiber Septim, and thus Numidium.

    Re the TV series 'The Following'

    Dark supernatural powers exist in the universe of The Following but no-one is aware of this due to the subtle way they operate.
    Those who please them, particularly serial killers, are granted certain protections. They become faster, stronger, more skilled despite never actually doing anything to gain these advantages. If the killers particularly please the Dark Powers they will even be gifted so that no ordinary person can harm them.Though this gift will manifest subtly, the Killers won't be invulnerable but ordinary people will always miss their shots, or react too slowly or just not notice them.
    In order to ensure their Disciples don't get lazy the Powers do provide worthy (by which they mean damaged and ruthless, these are Dark Powers after all) opponents to be able to harm their Disciples.

    Seriously, this makes, to me, perfect sense. How else do you explain despite every police and FBI officer in the USA looking for the various Serial Killers its always the heroes who bring them down. Or particularly referring to The Following, the scene in the snow covered wood where three serial killers armed with pistols and knives and dressed all in black defeat six highly trained soldiers with automatic weapons and who actually dress in proper camoflague

    Batman:

    None of the Joker's origin stories are true, and all of the Joker's origin stories are true. The Joker is an incarnation of a god of chaos, and possesses a new body every time he is killed. The insanity level of Gotham city (far beyond what can be considered normal even in the DC universe - compare Superman's villains to Batman's) is a side affect of his unholy presence but he is bound to that particular place except for brief excursions.


    Star Wars:
    Anakin's destruction of the Jedi Order was a necessary part of bringing balance to the Force. Not because of any notion of balancing Light and Dark, but because the Jedi were only a few generations from falling to the Dark Side as a whole due to their arrogance and power.

    Hmm. While I really like the idea, I think the Joker's origin is something that should stay secret. It's more interesting if everyone has their own theory and no one quite knows who's right.

    In a similar vein, something I've been thinking about for a while:

    Spoiler: Dishonored series
    Show
    The Outsider was never human. The black-eyed man Corvo and others see is just an avatar it uses to more easily communicate with humans; the real Outsider is some kind of Eldritch Abomination. (Personally, I like the idea that it's a huge, magical whale, out in the ocean somewhere. Which just sound silly, now that I say it like that...)


    I haven't played Dishonored 2 yet, so if there's something there that contradicts this, please tell me.

    I was gearing up to argue with you because of the common argument over what "bringing balance to the Force" means, and then you went and swerved me with a totally different reason for why it needed to happen. And... I actually like this one. The Jedi definitely still had some good apples, but a lot of the order's practices and beliefs are pretty nonsensical. While it's pretty unarguable that what Anakin did after becoming Darth Vader is pretty evil, the signs are definitely there that the Jedi as an organization were not healthy, and on a path toward getting worse. I don't think it's an intentional message of the prequel films, but an interesting interpretation that I find quite believable.

    In the Season 2 opener of Legends of Tomorrow, they showed Oliver Queen boarding the Waverider, but they never showed him departing.

    Headcanon: Oliver actually was wandering the ship trying to find the bathroom. When he finally found his way out, they'd already landed in 1942. By the time he realized what had happened, the Waverider had departed again, stranding him. He spent the next 3 years fighting Nazis (and giving his future self further opportunities for flashbacks) before the Legends noticed something was wrong.

    I don't know if this would count as headcanon, but when I played Final Fantasy Tactics with my friend we would make up stories about the generic characters. I guess it would have to come down to whether headcanon should be something that could be reasonably inferred or if something entirely made up works as well.

    then can you explain why she can still look like nothing happened to her. I mean i am not oda but if she looses both arms I think we have a solid reason for arc where luffy tries to get her arms back so chopper can attach it. where in the end franky reveals he already build laser firing arms for her and attached already.

    My head cannon for FFT is that the other students from Magic City Gariland Academy died at Fort Zeakden or bugged out when Ramza and Delita went up against Houkenten. C'mon, those were other children of nobility. They may consider Ramza and Delita to be true friends and the ones that didn't die were appalled at Algus's actions, but they weren't going to abandon their families. (Also, it frees up room for Rad, Alicia, Lavian, Mustadio, Agrias, Rafa, Malak, T.G. Cid, Meliadoul, Beowolf, Reis, Worker 8, Cloud and Byblos. Pity about the 16 slot limit on the PS... would've loved another 8 slots for breeding monsters)

    Also, the Count of Lionel was originally a noble soul, but the loss of his wife pushed him over the edge and made him an easy target for the Lucavi. Vormav lost his wife too. After all, FFT is like Berserk, minus the Idea of Evil.

    The protagonist of the old action cartoon James Bond Junior is the same nephew of James Bond who goes rogue in the 1969 version of Casino Royale. It would simply be too much of a coincidence for him to have two nephews with the same name and career path.

    Jackie Chan from the cartoon jackie chans adventures is actually an adult short round from indianna jones. He spent so much time around indy and his adventures, not too mention magic, that he couldnt help but be drawn into more of it with the talisman issue. Uncle is really The Ancient from Kung Fu the legend continues tv show, also uncle benny from lethal weapon 4, also that food cart guy from fifth element. He is an immortal who spends his time dispensing advice and providing a push in the right direction to people who need it. Always appears at pivotal moments in time. Sometimes a single conversation, sometimes for years.

    I like your dark reinterpretation and follow it with my own: the very existence of Jedi and Sith disbalance the force, leading to galactic chaos. The presence of the chosen is an attempt by the universe to bring itself to homeostasis. Remember, Darth Vader brought balance to the force primarily through murder: as a jedi, then a sith, then a "redeemed" (briefly) sith.

    Mary Richards went on to have a long and happy single life. She never did get married but became a successful TV producer in her own right, and a mentor to many other, younger women in TV. She died, still working on a cable news show, at the age of 80.

    Edit: Yes, I know there was some silly made-for-TV movie that contradicts this. I never saw it so I'm ignoring it completely.

    At one point, the Outsider tells you that he was a human who was sacrificed in a ritual, and the result of that ritual was him becoming the Outsider. I guess that doesn't preclude him being a partially-ignorant extension of an eldritch abomination, or a body possessed by one.


    Huge magical whale reminds me of the Turtle from some of Stephen King's books (It, the Dark Tower series).

    That's actually easy to explain - you're forgetting the time it takes to get TO a relay, or to vent the stealth system, or to discharge your drive, or to plot a course, or to refuel, or to avoid Reaper/Collector patrols etc. The actual relay transit time doesn't have to be a factor in your time walking around the ship.

    Remember in ME1, your romance scene takes place entirely between the Citadel and the Mu Relay, implying it took at least an hour to get from one to the other - there were several relay jumps in that time, but also some intracluster travel getting to each hop.

I mean really, why wouldn't she? (She's read Watchmen so she's careful to intelligence-limit the part of herself that controls the body to avoid a Dr. Manhattan / Laurie-style drifting apart.)
    I dunno - the dialogue from GodShep suggests he/she remembers the crew, but does not necessarily feel the emotional attachments to them that Shepard did. But I'm not here to invalidate your headcanon, just point out a plausible reason why the AI-Shepard might not want to continue his/her romances.

You just don't see that because the game skips over the ship's nighttimes during transit, and during the day, Kaidan doesn't hang around the room because Shepard needs to work, and because they're technically breaking the fraternization rules and Kaidan doesn't want to get Shepard in trouble.
    This one is actually canon. There's a line where you talk to a romanced Kaidan on the ship in ME3 and he mentions that you left without waking him - Shepard says "Didn't have the heart" and Kaidan replies, "Next time, wake me." So Kaidan's pretty clearly sleeping in his/her quarters.

    I mean, J.K. Rowling has basically been writing her own fanfiction since she finished Deathly Hallows, so this seems about right to me.

    The actual in-system transit time can't be that large -- the Charon relay is only about 5 light-hours from Earth (Pluto is only about 5 light-hours from the sun), so an FTL must be able to reach the Charon relay in under 5 hours. Moreover, the Normandy is regularly flying to non-mass-relay systems; since they are presumably not letting Shepard disappear for years in the middle of the Reaper invasion, multi-light-year flights can't take more than a day or two, which means getting around a solar system can't take more than a few minutes.

    And, we don't know where the Mu Relay way (that I remember), so it could have been several hops from the Citadel. So I don't think that proves / disproves much of anything.
