An end, once and for all - 5 (spoilers) by suthnmeh An end, once and for all - 5 (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! www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tJ1LY…


MORE EDIT: So this was done before the Extended Cut came out, so at least the issue with the flashbacks was resolved. Handsome Garrus is finally in my Shepard's thoughts *sob*



HEY HEY! LISTEN TO THIS WHILE READING! Recommend having tissues around. www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5JvbD…

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 could've been 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.

One quick question concerning the Destroy ending...

WHY THE HELL CAN'T SHEPARD SHOOT THAT DAMN THING FROM A SAFE DISTANCE?

Not that it would've helped in the end but... yeah I would not have walked into that XD

If Shepard simply shoots that from the starting point, it would blow up and not engulf him/her.

Anyway, if you haven't already, check out Nightfable's destroy ending located here: nightfable.deviantart.com/gall…

I still cannot with this.  Ugh it hurts more than the ending, especially Garrus nuzzling her.
