This post in the Motivationals thread and the subsequent denial of such a thing existing has brought up a question that I'd like to know what everyone's answer to is. I mostly play female Shepard, so obviously I don't romance Tali in any of those playthroughs. This being the case, is there someone you think Tali would have feelings for instead? I know Kal seems to be the most common pick, but what does everyone think?

But killed for a life of ease
Now we leave the wounds for you
What else can the dying do?

Okay, done trolling.  Seriously though I really don't have a clue.  Kal seems the best bet, they've worked together and all that as I remember but I really can't give a better answer. :/

I've seen some really cute stories with her and Garrus getting together that have done a good job of pointing out why it would work. I'm actually a big fan of that pairing. Kal is probably more realistic, but Garrus just seems more.. adorable somehow.

EDIT: This is assuming I haven't romanced Garrus, of course. Because yeah, scars are sexy. I'm a big fan of supportive waists, too :wub:

I don't think it would be with Kal. He doesn't actually seem very interested. He's a professional, and he obviously strives to keep it that way. So I don't think it would work between them.

Honestly, it would probably end up being somebody she meets way after the war with the Reapers is over, after she and Shepard go their separate ways. Because of the feelings she admits, I doubt she would be able to be with anyone else as long as Shepard is around.

And my argument is officially void.

Except the Kal part, I stand by that part.

On the subject of Kal he may be professional and all and it's a working relationship, but couldn't these things be said of maleshep too?

Shep is more loose though (unless you play like me :ermm: ). He doesn't refer to members of his crew as "Ma'am", like Kal does. It just seems like a  completely professional relationship from his end.

Somebody not met would be best in my opinion. I can see her working with Kal or Garrus, but not especially well.

FemShep x Tali should be possible though. :teehee:

My sentiments exactly. Not every character has to be Bi. And yes it is politically correct for their to be straight only characters.

I see her being a loner if she doesn't get Shep. thats my opinion anyways and what I see when playing the game.

Other people romancing her as FemShep doesn't affect your game though. She can be hetero and bi. But this is OT so I'll shut up now. :P

I would go with Kal personally rather than Garrus. Seems like he would jump on a grenade for her. Haestrom anyone? And on the Rayya if you rally the crowd it seems he would rather leave the only home he's ever known than let her be exiled and he appears to be one of the few quarians with a brain, that can't hurt. Garrus seems like more of a bro/sis relationship than an intimate one, in my opinion, they probably respect each other without a doubt but from my memory he hasn't really done anything for her apart from fight on Shepard's team and maybe telling Shep about her on the Citadel but even Wrex can do that. I think Garrus might be a bit of a loner if it wasn't for FemShep, I can't really recall him on making any comments about any of the female squaddies so from my PoV there isn't really any indication he fancies her.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

Well, my canonshep (Alexandra) doesn't swing that way, and thinks of Tali like a sister, so... :P

I'd rather Tali not die alone... I'd at least want her to find some sort of love.

But that's just my opinion, no need to go spreading it around.

Jacob lost his chances already during the briefing for Tali after Haestrom. :D

I'm inclined to agree with this.

I would say Kenneth Donnelly, since he is the only other person that shows interest in Tali(even if its only physical). I sure deep down he is a Talimancer like the rest of us. :)
