The Shepard's Prayer by TheDalishRanger The Shepard's Prayer by TheDalishRanger
Inspired by the typical stupidity of the Mass Effect forums on the BSN and a conversation I had with :iconajones3232:.

Basically, I criticized people who can't take any disagreement or critiquing of Shepard from other characters, warranted or not. Shepard, BAMF though he/she is, is still human and hardly immune or undeserving of critique. I referred to Shepard as their "sacred space messiah" in sarcasm, and then the idea for this came. The Our Father was a good base because it's one of the more commonly known prayers.

Hope this amuses everyone as much as it amused me. :D

This is brilliant!

I hate how some Mass Effect fans paint Shephard as some god-like being. He/she may be awesome but he/she still screws up, sometimes with to the player's intention of such.

Exactly, and I'm glad that happens. I mean, when they have badass/awesome moments, I'm giddy, but I'm also glad when they screw up because they're still only human, and I like being reminded of that.

I actually look forward to being yelled at on Horizon each time I replay ME2 for similar reasons. :XD:

Same here, I like the moments of badassness but also those where they mess up because it adds character.

I like this Shepard's Prayer better:

"Dear Lord, please don't let me fuck up" - misquote of Alan Shepard, the first American in space, said shortly before launch. In reality he said "Don't fuck up, Shepard..." but the former is what became Shepard's Prayer.
