While trawling the interwebs for more Mass Effect material, in one of DeviantArt accounts, I have found this image. It first came up as a thumbnail with the title. Looking at it, I automatically assumed that this was going to be a little cross-fandom homage to Blade Runner‘s “Do you like our owl?” scene. Rachel/Mirand facing Deckard/Shepard off-screen is a tip-off, but, of course, it’s the diagonal slashes of sunlight (although here on the opposite side of the room) that made me certain this had to be a visual quote from Scott. Alas, it is not and “Do you like” is about a new top. Kristeva’s and Barthes’ intertextuality at its best.
