An end, once and for all - 2 (spoilers) by suthnmeh An end, once and for all - 2 (spoilers) by suthnmeh
Edit: Holy shitkabobs on a dinner table! I can't believe the support and love I've been recieving for this comic! I wasn't expecting it and it's had me on a big fluffy cloud for a couple of days now! Thank you all so much! :hug:
And to top it all, ~nicholasfunstuff went ahead and made a video of it with the music and sound effects!! Go watch it here! [link]



HEY HEY! LISTEN TO THIS WHILE READING! Recommend having tissues around. [link]

I have spent too much time on this... :iconimdeadplz:

This was a result of a need to get the Mass Effect ending from my system. Funny thing is it took so long to make, I was pretty much over it half-way through XD Even funnier is I just cried a little right now :iconcryforeverplz:

One of the jillion things that bothered me about this ending was that the characters most dear to me didn't even seem to be on Lara Shepard's mind. As explosions were going off, images of Joker, Anderson and... Liara? seem to flash before her eyes. I was kind of outraged. I absolutely love Joker and Anderson, but... Liara? She's great and all, but... No chance of Garrus's face to pop in her mind instead? They ARE in a relationship after all! HE VENTURED INTO THE IDEA OF HAVING KIDS, FOR F**K'S SAKE!

It's funny that everything else about that ending would pretty much make sense if we have in mind the popular Indoctrination Theory (which I'm all on board with), but this... this, haha, really bothered me :P Somehow it's like Liara's friendship is forced down my throat a lot of times. No ofense to Liara fans, she's actually a great character, just not one I'm specially fond of. And I really just wanted to see Tali, and Garrus... and Mordin... and Legion and Wrex... one last time... *tear flood* So all this just added to the feeling that the ending was rushed and put together as quickly as possible.

Hence this.

A huge thank you to :icondrawanon: for her enthusiasm and beta reading!

For Tali's pattern I used something I found on the Bioware forums. If anyone knows who made it, I'll add the link.

Apparently if you haven't romanced Kaidan or Ash, you just get Liara. No matter who you romanced.

How did I miss this when I rummaged your dev pages?!
I feel you there, I wish there's this scene in the end :iconcryforeverplz:

(by the way, it's a bug, apparently if we romanced someone in ME1 and cheated, this scene is set as Liara...I got her as well )

I wasn't expecting being moved by a picture like this. Much of the art prompted by the retake movement has demonstrated a lot of talent, but this is one of the first that really emotionally engaged me. Awesome pic. Thank you for your contribution.

Me gusta la elección de su ropa más casual y no de la armadura.

A que siiii :icontearplz:
Haha si. Tuve dos razones para hacerle con la casual. 1: La armadura esa es odiosa de dibujar XD y 2: Quedaba mucho más íntimo :heart: ... y 2.5: Está guapísimo con esa ropa arrrgglgl

Uff... no me digas eso, que aún no me he mentalizado para hacer las armaduras del ME3... las del 2 ya dan ganas de quemarlas!! Estoy de acuerdo con el punto 2 y con el 2.5 también!!

VAMOS QUE SI ME INTERESSSSSAANNN!! Pues ahora me estoy dando cuenta que las armaduras del tercero son más complicadas que las del segundo... en unos meses oirás gritos de desesperación!!!
Como no iba a estarlo!!
Pues sí, una pena que no viesemos lo que hay debajo! (vale, vale, ducha de agua fría!)

Las del tercero son más completas y realistas... Así que sí. FAntásticas, pero nos han jodido a los fanartistas XD
Iiiiiiiiiiii espero que sí continues con el comic hasta ME3!
Oye, y siempre podemos sacar nuestras propias conclusiones sobre lo que se vería ahí abajo... Yo ya lo he hecho hurrhurr :iconhurrplz:

Yo creo que lo han hecho a posta, para que suframos con las armaduras.

I was bothered about the Liara thing too. Sometimes I feel as if it's ALL about Liara. No offense to Liara fans...but I am not a big fan of her really. Grateful that she recovered Shepard's body but she came across as clingy for the most part. I would have been a tad more okay if Garrus was in Shepard's mind at the end too.

Anyway, this is great! Thanks for working on it and putting it up.

even though I went for the blue ending, I couldnt bring myself to destroy the geth and EDI, the point is the same ... I REALLY REALLY REALLY needed my crew next to me...after weeks of dealing with the end unsuccessfully I am a step closer to final closure, my tears are still flowing, thank you for including Tali in such a big way, and thank you for the wonderful gift of this short yet emotionally packed interpretation of the ending...once and for all
