|Anastasia "Dee" Dualla|
And then? Boom, gone. She is no more.
"I just want to hang on to this feeling as long as I can."Oh, the tears and shock that followed her death. I was furious that the writers would take this direction with her. Dee had gone through so much through the season that to see her kill herself was actually painful. I have a tendency to get creepily attached* to fictional characters, and Dee was no exception. I didn't see this coming, and it brought back so many memories of a friend of mine who shot himself while I was in high school. All of those emotions just came back to me: the loss, the anger, the depression. The writers had made me care for Dee, even when she made bad decisions (why, hello there, Lee Adama), so while it was one logical conclusion to her character arc, I still felt stabbed in the back.
But as I said on Day 19, I have a head-canon story line that has Dee alive and well and with Billy until the end of time, so there is that.
* Playing Mass Effect 3 was so. hard. to play: watching Mordin die, witnessing Thane's slow death in the hospital, thinking that Grunt was killed by the rachni, etc. Those Bioware people really know how to tug at the heartstrings.
