Are you flirting with me, Lola? by SumireHaikuXNA Are you flirting with me, Lola? by SumireHaikuXNA
:iconurhappyplz:

Okay, basically this is what I would have done if I was Shepard. I think that Bioware should really make a possible romance with Vega and not just those cute flirts. They wanted to tease us, damn it.
So, I decided to create an alternative version of the short flirting scene we get in ME3.

Made with XNALara, Photoshop CS2 and Trust tablet.

Everything belongs to Bioware and Electronic Arts! I only take credit for the converting, posing and editing part.

Even as a straight male I wanted this option to be real, James is a neat guy, even if he has his moments :D

But he had a difficult past, just as Shep, Garrus and all the others...

If only my Shepard could romance him then I would be more than happy! :happybounce: Bioware seriously messed up male romance options for female Shepard in Mass Effect 3! :angry

IKR?? I was so disappointed! The only relationship in ME3 that I went mad for was the Kaidan one, because my main Shepard started to romance him in ME1 and she didn't date anyone else in ME2. The rest of the options, however, is indeed terrible. You can romance Garrus and Thane only if you started in ME2 and the poor assassin even dies. Jacob is a huge disappointment, Cortez is just for the males and James can't be selected as a romance option >_> they only gave us something in the DLC, but still, what happens with James stops right there. Yes, you can romance Samantha.... but why should I care? I want males XD

When Jacob announced that he has another girlfriend I was like seriously Jacob?! Kaidan is able to wait about 2 years and even more for my Shepard and you barely can wait for her only about 6 months?! :o (Eek) You $%%$%! :angry: I guess Jacob's word's which he said to my Shepard in ME 2 were nothing more than an empty sound which makes me so disappointed in him. As for the other romance options I don't care if I can romance females and I don't want only Kaidan as male romance option. One of my Shepard's already romanced him in ME 1 and continued to do so in ME 3 so I want different male romance options for female Shepard. One of my many Shepard's has romanced Thane. After Thane's death I wanted Steve as romance for my Shepard but I think that this version of Shepard ended up with nothing (If I remember right) because it was too late when I discovered that Steve is only as romance option for male Shepard and at the same time I discovered that Shepard can't romance James Vega (They wasted potentially great romance option. :( (Sad)).

Yep. I never romanced Jacob but I thought I could give it a try... gave up before even starting when I discovered how the relationship with him would end in ME3. Not only a new girlfriend, but also a baby?? I know she says that Jacob never stopped loving Shepard, but hey... this is not enough! ME2 introduced new romance options and we had three new males: Thane, Jacob and Garrus. In ME3 we only had Steve for a male Shepard, then Samantha and the rest of old romances. What about James?? ç_ç I so wanted to romance him, damn!

Indeed that's not enough! If he never really stopped loving Shepard then how come that after about 6 months he already has another girlfriend and even a baby?! :D (Big Grin) CURSE YOU! 
Like I said his words in ME 2 were nothing more than empty sound because as far as I've noticed Kaidan never stopped loving Shepard either and despite of the fact how bad things went on Horizon in ME 2 he still waited for her and didn't even cheat on her. To me it looked like he was ready to wait for her forever.

It's no wonder why people say that Jacob is a seriously messed up character. No, I disagree! As for the James Vega I like many others wanted to romance him too! Sad dummy

True. Kaidan never stopped loving her and even if in ME2 he said his friends convinced him to go out with a Citadel woman, he clearly said to Shepard that after seeing her he couldn't stop thinking about what they had. Jacob is probably too weak and couldn't wait.

Yep, there are so many girls who wish they could romance Vega properly. He's truly a great character damn! :XD:

Jacob is more than weak if he can't wait even a 1 year not to mention 2 years.

That he is. Nod  Too bad that Bioware also messed up the way how he was introduced to Mass Effect 3 players. I mean in the beginning where I first saw James Vega he simply walks in and talks with my Shepard like they know each other for years while I was sitting and thinking who the hell is this guy and how and when he met my Shepard?! :o_o:

Yeah I thought that too, but I liked their relationship... the way he respected Shepard, even if he didn't like when they had to leave Earth. I loved flirting with him during the party, but meeeh that was not the romance I wanted >_>

I was so sure he was before starting ME3... then I found out you could only flirt a bit... and nothing more D:
You get a little romance if your Shepard is single in the Citadel DLC, but then again, it doesn't change anything. They are so cruel :(
