Childproof by HuggyBear742 Childproof by HuggyBear742
Having fought countless crime syndicates, a rogue Spectre, and even the Reapers, nothing strikes fear in the heart of Garrus Vakarian... except the thought of babysitting a 4 year old asari.

A direct followup to A Woman's TouchThe idea behind this piece is that Tali and Garrus are a happy, yet childless couple (I'm sticking as close to canon on this one, so bear with me). Thus, their cabin on the Normandy is a complete mess with tons of Tali's salvaged tech, Garrus' sniper rifles and assault rifles, and a bunch other kid-unfriendly stuff lying around.

The only problem I have with pieces like these, where Shepard and Liara have a kid, is that people always make the child look too old. Asari live for thousands of years. By the time Shepard is an old man/woman, any daughter he/she would have with Liara would still be a toddler if that yet here she looks like she's eight or nine (by Asari standards at least). Other than that, it's still a great looking piece and definitely 'daww' inducing, that's just a pet-peeve of mine when it comes to fan-art like this.

Long lived doesn't always mean long childhood. Sea turtles don't stay little for 50 years man. Lobsters aren't adolescents for centuries.

It makes no evolutionary sense for a longer up-ramp in hitting *genetic* adulthood. We're sort of the odd one's out in it taking so long for us to hit the "adult" stage. I would imagine asari would hit young adult/teen around the same time as human children, then stall until they hit Maidenhood.

Now, adult in the sense of asari law? You have a better argument. Liara had just hit that at a century, she's actually a bit *young* for a child, being barely a century old. Most asari don't hit "Baby" stage until halfway into their third century.

That actually is a good point. But I would argue that since Asari are incredibly humanoid (to the point where there's a popular fan-theory of a shared ancestry due to meddling from the Protheans) I would consider Asari aging to be at least similar to humans, just stretched out. But I guess in the end, it's never been outright confirmed in-universe how exactly Asari aging works so I guess what I have is just a theory, same as you. Let me reiterate, I DO like this piece. It's very adorable and a nice look at what a future could be like for them. It's just whenever I see a still-the-same-age Shepard with an Asari child who looks eight or nine, something just feels... Off about it. But that's just me and it is a major nit-pick in an otherwise great piece of fan-art.

This is awesome. Great work, also great to see Garrus and Tali together, a perfect match. I still remember bumping into them in the forward gun room in each others arms. :D

Excellent work!  I always liked that Garrus and Tali hooked up if neither were involved with Shepard.  Their friendship was always evident.

Am I the only one who thinks Garrus looks like a cat?
