(Yay, fixed'ed finally.)
It's very easy to picture a seven year-old Tali'Zorah (yes, complete with miniaturized ME2 suit) hugging a pink tinged Spark/Monitor robot. And later while glaring up at Rael in defiance. Security blanket, and that's before(?) it gets a shock arm to become a real security tool.
Although now I'm getting the cute image of Little Tali going everywhere with a bobbing robot flowing just over her shoulder. Gets even better with a teen-aged one meting Janice and Metra.
Despite the very unlikely event that seven year old Tali is still working on learning to write, (not really seeing that a critical issue in a very computer/omni-tool based culture) I'm still seeing Tali sticking her tongue out the side of her mouth while making sure she types her letter correctly.
Hope to see Little Tali in future stories. Bet she'd get along famously with the Duelists.
When in Danger, or in Doubt.
Run in circles, scream and shout.
