This is the ending I wanted for my Shepard. This is what she deserved. Thank you for giving it to me.

I am really moved by this. Sorry I speak English poor. I don't know how to say. It's just so warm. I like it and thank you.

You write so darn well I'm stuffed to the brim with envy and admiration (: This is probably going to be my most fav garrusxshep fic. I've replayed ME3 thrice and everytime she reaches the end I'd cry (a bit strange but I cldn't help it) and I'd be suddenly thinking selfishly for Shepard - like what chapter 3 so beautifully put across, grasping for a satisfactory answer to the question: Why me? Shepard asked this a couple of times if I remb correctly and I was always so saddened/pissed when all she got was a typical "It's gotta be you"/"If you dont do it, no one else will" (along these lines). Amazing story you've spun here. Reading this, imagining it happening to my Shepard somehow lets me feel less guilty for allowing such a disappointing end to her life.

I know how you feel...I can't get the game out of my head either. I feel like they spent all this time telling us that it was OUR game...that we determined how our game developed...then at the end said, "Sorry, this is MY game and I'll end it how I want...you get MY ending".
They took Mordin. They took Thane...and in the end, they took away over 100 hours of my life by giving me an ending that made NO sense. HOW did Garrus and the rest of my team get back on the Normandy? WHY was the Normandy LEAVING, running from the fight? IF destroying a relay destroys all life in the area (Arrival DLC, ME2) how did I NOT just kill every living thing in the galaxy? And after spending all those hours getting all the other Species to trust me, I end up getting them STUCK on Earth, where half of them (Turians and Quarians) will starve to death. WTF!
I don't even care if Shepard lives, really...let her die...but let her be in that damn bar with Garrus...because with him is the only ending I want to see...alive or dead, she deserves some reward for all she gave up...let her at least have Garrus!
Sorry, rant over. I love your story and ending!

That was so beautiful, I'm a puddle of mush on the floor

Thank you thank you thank you so very much! I love your work and although I have been sucked into SWTOR and then of course ME3 the endings left me, like many others, totally bewildered and depressed. Thank you for head cannoning this so much better than I could! Maybe I can sleep tonight. I agree that the Synthesis option seems the most Paragon to me, and would allow for future games so YOU need to get a job writing for Bioware.

I think you did a good job cleaning up the shotty endings they gave us. I hated them and felt like all the previous decisions were totally wasted! My Shep deserved more, she busted her ass and all for those crappy endings? Thank you for cleaning up the ending, it makes me feel a little better. All I wanted was Shep waking up to Garrus (or whomever the player romanced) at her side just like you wrote. Would've been much more epic. Good job!

This is a really lovely alternate ending! Thanks for writing it.
| HawthornSong 3/15/12 . chapter 4
Thank you for a great story. Please keep writing. Every image these stories put in my head helps move on from the PAIN of the original ending.
So, what happens next? Rebuilding Palavan, perhaps?
Looking forward to reading more.

I definately cried at the end of the last two chapters. This is a beautiful story.
| GypsyReaper 3/13/12 . chapter 4
See, I LITERALLY just finished the game and after 50-60 hours of gameplay over 2 years for all 3 games I've never been so upset! How could they do that to Shepard? After EVERYTHING she's done and sacrificed they couldn't even throw her a bone?
I too chose snythesis but I still don't get why Garrus was on the ship...Honestly that was the part that upset me most, he now being forced into lonliness without her...how could they do that to her and us? I am going to pretend the last mission never happened and replace it with fanfiction...
| Dixie990 3/13/12 . chapter 4
I litterally just finished the new game and I'm totally with you. What a SHIT ending! I was so disappointed! So your version is a welcome relief! Keep rocking!
| Draiconovix 3/13/12 . chapter 4
Thank you so much for writing this. ME3 blew my mind and I cryed like a baby at the end because of the injustice of her not ending up with Garrus. I'm a sucker for happy endings, and while Biowares ending finished the game full circle, My poor Shep was unable to keep her promise and that kinda broke apart of me.
So now I'm scowering the net for fix-it fanfics of Shep ending up with her lover. This is my favourate to date. So thank you :D
