Interlude: The Prothean Agonist

Day 29. 96 pages, 46,128 words.

My time is limited and I may be a little sleep-deprived and crazed … normally this is the beginning of a wonderful round of The Witty Retort, but maybe later.

Today, I stumbled onto the formation of a new and utterly hilarious to me and maybe one other person meme, the Prothean Agonist.

The original.

As I say, my time was limited but I came up with an addition to the joke.

And lo, Prothean Agonist is born.

After doing a little research on the Protheans, I came up with a couple of slightly more relevant examples.

Because they can absorb information through touch, see.

I think any number of alien pictures could be captioned with “oh no, it’s a human” and remain perfectly faithful to the original spirit of the species.

Okay, that’s all for today.

  1. OMG you just made my day, potentially my whole month in advance. (I’m in the middle of playing the Mass Effect trilogy, I’m in the third part at the moment and I suspect I shall finish by the end of the month.)

    Look, there’s even a roleplaying game for all the Agonists:

      “Agon is an action-packed roleplaying game about ancient Greek heroes who face brutal tests from the gods. With bravery, cunning, honor, and strength, one hero will prove to be the greatest and secure immortality in legend.”

      Sounds like a socially-awkward alien attempting to survive human small-talk.

    Mass Effect. One of my all-time favorite video game series. ME2 in particular just rocked my world.

    Javik was a wonderful character. Well worth the DLC price. His “ancient precursor alien” perspective on the storyline present and the newer species (including humans) was hilarious.

    Liara (an Asari): “I’ve written over a dozen studies on your species. I’ve published in several journals.”
    Javik: “Amusing. Asari have finally mastered writing.”
