I tried to start the Vector romance today. I could not stop laughing. I blame this thread.

Seriously, can't a girl get some privacy while she's getting some Vector love?

Really?
Come on girls, really?
I mean it, go away now!
Seriously, were you there the WHOLE time?

Oh my gosh...that is completely hilarious. Waaay too funny.

I'm sure Vector didn't mind though. He's used to sharing and having an audience already.

Okay, it took me two days to read this entire thread. I didn't want to needlessly repeat something that had already been said. Now that I have read it all, I feel the need to offer a warning to people like me.

I myself hate Vector. I always hated Vector. I hate the Killiks. I am not creeped out about him being a joiner. I am not creeped out by bugs. I just don't like him. I never did. I never take him out. I never play with him. I did want his affection levelled up though because I want him to perform his crew tasks quickly and efficiently. He can work as hard as the rest of the worker bees on MY ship. Especially since I never wanted him on my ship anyway.

I knew as affection levelled it would trigger the story line. That is fine. I did want to see all my companion's stories anyway.

I have one character that is almost purely lightside and two that are almost purely darkside, but my female sniper and my male commando I play neutral. I play them as extensions of me. I make them converse and act in whatever way I feel I would act in a given situation. (And like real life, when I have had a bad day I sometimes take it out in the virtual world, and have felt a bit bad about it the next day.)

So... Vector. You are a nice guy. An intelligent conversationalist. A genuinely nice person. You just rub me the wrong way and annoy the hell out of me. So, what's the problem?

Well, I was doing my normal "talk to Vector" routine, which is "be nice, and try to avoid his obvious overtures". I could see he was getting the hots for me and I wanted to make sure he knew I wasn't interested. So the problem? Yes?

I DIDN'T SHUT HIM DOWN HARD ENOUGH!

We were talking... I was trying to be nice and supportive. THE NEXT THING I KNEW WE WERE KISSING! Fade to black and then we were having the awkward "What are we going to tell everybody now?" conversation STANDING IN THE BEDROOM! GAH!

I WAS SO ANGRY! HOW DID I LET THIS HAPPEN? Walk of shame, walk of shame. I wanted in that moment more than any other to put a blaster bolt either right through Vector's forehead or my own for letting that happen. That's how I ended up here. I was SO ANGRY AND DISGUSTED I went online and did a search engine search for "I hate Vector" and it brought me to this thread.

No, I never "escape key" out of conversations. I say what I say and let the cards fall where they may. I know the fangirls will say I just succumbed to Vector's amazing and undeniable charm, but I really felt horrible and kind of dirty afterward (and not in a good way). In my next conversation I was so, so, SO happy to tell him marraige was not a good idea. I did feel bad to see him hurt that way (I am not a bad person after all) but it HAD to be done. In the next conversation after the proposal I also got the "you're my husband" option also which I found dismaying because now I can't escape the feeling that now that Vector got a piece he might now become my stalker and he will always think of me as "his". Ugh.

So my warning to all of you who do not want Vector in your bed: SHUT HIM DOWN! SHUT HIM ALL THE WAY DOWN! SHUT HIM OUT! LOCK THE DOOR! SAY THE MEANEST THINGS YOU CAN TO HIM! BUY HIS AFFECTION WITH ALL THE SHINEY THINGS YOU CAN BUT BE HARSH, HARSH, HARSH WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH! IF YOU DON'T YOU MIGHT JUST FIND YOURSELF ASKING, "WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED?!?"

It happened to me.

Poor agent. A mistake hookup in an already convoluted and crappy life.

As an aside Eckard is just about the only agent companion I can relate to. I don't like blind loyalists. Vector and Raina are Imperial toadies, with Vector having all his hive "duties" piled on top of that. Kaliyo and Scorpio are blindly loyal to themselves. 2V-R8 is blindly loyal to me (which is just pathetic). Yes, yes. I know Vector shows he will choose me over everything else, but he just comes with too much baggage. Scorpio seems to show she is pleased with our arrangement, but the first time she told me she WOULD kill me all I wanted to do was put a blaster bolt between her eyes (and I have wanted to ever since). Only Eckard seems to understand that we have a job to do, but it is not the be-all, end-all of everything. THAT I can relate to.

You know, the way I saw it was that my agent was sufficiently...thwacked...that if it wasn't the hive looking on, she'd have found something worse.

(Yes, it's sad that with my agents I've just thrown up my hands and said, "Oh, fine. It's your stupid little imaginary life. You live it the way you see fit. I'm just going to be sitting here at the computer and judging hard.")

Cosset, you've been a victim of the strange "feature" in game that makes the companion romance arcs an all or nothing thing.

Somebody out there needs to compile a list of all the romance companions' "trigger" conversations, so that people can make sure they either get the romance going or don't depending on what they want! And there should be a way to shut it off once you've gotten it going just in case you've changed your mind.

Does anyone know what Vector's trigger conversation is? If someone could figure it out, we could warn people.
