Victor is most awesome dude for my Skila on Corellian Run. I can't wait to get onto that romance option. Plus he is like James Bond... really awesome!

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.
You should sign the "Hey can we please withdraw consent for all that activity we didn't consent to in the first place" petition! Because seriously, triggering that once shouldn't make us the target of sexual pursuit for the rest of our legacy-unlock-earning career, and avoiding that pursuit shouldn't numerically penalize us in game (by preventing those unlcoks). http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=440165

We need SGR's to come out so we can get more participants in this thread again. I reread the first few pages sometimes when I need a laugh. It's still so funny.

Do you think the writers knew what they were doing when they made Vector the female's LI for this class? Seems like a bold choice - I mean, most women don't consider bugs to be romantic. Was the romance option an after-thought? Or were they purposely trying to do something different? I wish I could ask them.

Yay, I missed this thread.

Quote writer Alexander Freed via twitter: " Thanks! (And I'm still relieved people didn't react to Vector with uniform horror. He's an... atypical romantic interest.)" So yeah, I'd say he knew exactly what he was doing, lol.

You could probably ask him there if you want, he is the writer of the Agent story and all the companions.

Okay, I haven't finished the romance subplot yet and, I'll be the first to admit that this is probably because I rolled my IA right after shelving my 28 Consular for a bit out of sheer boredom but, frankly? After having to spend several levels checking for roofies in all of my drinks and double checking all of the locks (as well as adding others) while dealing with Theran "Everybody-has-fun-on-Holiday" Cedrax, I am finding Vector to be a veritable and even welcome change of pace- bug or no. (Probably because, even though he may be a bug, oddly enough, he's not the one that made my skin crawl because, while Vector does strike me as a bit strange- Theran struck me as actually being "never-be-alone-in-a-room-with-this-guy" dangerous.)

I mean, alright, I don't quite get the forearm thing but, then again, GGG (Good, Giving, Game) doesn't precisely draw the line at humans only (good thing too speaking as a Chiss). Still, point is that I am Imperial after all so, I know for a fact that there are far worse- er... fascinations that the so-called "proper" human mind can develop. I mean, if I had a centime for every officer that wants to trounce around in women's clothing, spanked like a "naughty boy," or has actually pulled out an honest-to-fragging-sith shock-collar fully wanting to be the one to wear it.... I would indeed be a very rich gal. So, considering that what he wants isn't exactly going to see me spending a fortune at the local Imperil Secrets shop, he's welcome to rub away if that makes him feel better as far as I'm concerned.

So, I'll admit that I was a little worried at first but, right now I got to admit that I may not agree with Kaliyo on very much but on one thing we are definitely in full accord:

Sweet, good looking, loyal and dumb is the only way to go

Besides, at least Vector gets that anyone that doesn't like my decisions can just bite my blue butt!!

Just a little OT fyi - there is another romance option other than Tharan.

I think Tharan is just a fling that doesn't go anywhere, actually. Because his true love is Holiday There's a guy in the Warrior story that is kind of like that too. I'm going by hearsay though, my Consular is male. I didn't want to be spoilery either.

I lol'ed hard. And then kind of shuddered and hugged myself and was grateful that Holiday holds his attention most of the time.

Tharan Cedrax and the warrior's Lieutenant Pierce have one-night stand options. Quinn and Lt. Iresso are the "full" romances for female PCs for those classes.

Anyway, I'm all for bug-boy, so, carry on!
