What if Revan died while she was out in the Outer Rim trying to find the true Sith, but Carth never had any way to know? Maybe he spent the rest of his life with a broken heart, repairing the Republic and reforming ties with his son, doing wondrous things but never truly feeling at peace. And then one day he sits in his old worn-out cockpit seat and leans back, looking at an old image on a datapad of him and Revan in happier times… and his eyes mist up so terribly that he has to wipe them with his scruffy old fingers.
What would years of heartbreak do to a man? What if it wore him out, shortened his life? Maybe the strain of those years is too much for him, and at that moment he just lets go… and he passes away… slumped over, in that old dog-eared chair… just him and his memories, alone amidst the quiet hum of his tomb of a ship.
Then he wakes up and everything is so bright, like a bleached sky. He’s disoriented but he feels light, like a great weight’s been lifted from his chest. Then someone in the distance shouts at him, shouting for her hairless wookie.
…And it’s her. And his heart feels like it’s going to explode. Their embrace is like springtime, and their laughter cascades like ripples in the clearest stream.
And then they run off together into the white, to share their adventures once again.
friendly reminder that Carth is still waiting for Revan (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧

Obsidian looks back on Knights of the Old Republic 2 and shares what KOTOR3 might have been.
Pretty interesting article… I think it sheds some familiar but useful light on the whole lack-of-an-ending in KOTOR2 straight from the developers’ mouths, and of course makes me long for a real KOTOR3…
The Silent Sufferer
"I’ve waited for her to come back for almost four years… It doesn’t get any easier. … There’s just this… emptiness where she used to be.”
Happy 10th Anniversary, KOTOR!
Though SWTOR may have dragged some of your canon straight through the mud, I will always remember the original KOTOR with a special fondness. Not to mention my first Bioware love! I can never forget about him :3
Have a old favorite smutty Carth repost as my lazy way of celebrating ^^;

Giving their love, in their own ways
Carth Alenko, ver. 2.0
Bearded Kaidan was fun, but I thought I’d try taking it a little further… I snagged Carth’s textures from KOTOR1 and basically replaced Kaidan’s existing ones, stretching/adjusting/photoshopping where needed. It’s funny how different he feels when he’s got a different face on him.
If you’d like to give it a whirl, I’ve uploaded it HERE.You’ll need Texmod to use it.
It’s not perfect since his original texture was very low-res, but if anyone has access to an higher-res version of Carth’s textures, then I can update this to reflect that. Also, I couldn’t figure out where the normal map is for Kaidan’s hair. If anyone can tell me the hex code for it, I can add it to the TPF, since I have already made the file, I just need the code so it applies properly. The hair will look weird until a normal map can be added to the TPF because right now it’s using Kaidan’s hair’s real normal map, which creates different bumps/lumps on his head because it’s visually different from Carth’s hair pattern.
Also a disclaimer… the double hair bangs aren’t in the mod; I just shopped them in the pics so it would convey the idea better. There would be major model-altering and re-texturing needed to add those and that’s waaay too much of a headache for me to even attempt, lol.
I couldn’t help myself… spent about a half-hour adjusting the lovely beard!Kaidan mod textures and colors, and shopped in the bangs since I couldn’t get them to line up correctly on the textures themselves (plus they would’ve been plastered to his head as a texture anyway).
(EDIT: For anyone interested, I’ve also created a Carth face mod for ME3 Kaidan as well…)
When my brain likes to randomly remind me that Carth never saw Revan again and spent his life waiting for her
There’s a special place in hell for whoever brought Carth’s outfit over to SWTOR and made it look like a FUCKING CHINESE KNOCKOFF
