I am so happy you added the epilogue! These two are meant to be together, and Shepard is NOT supposed to die! This was a really great story to read. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it!
Having it all told from Garrus's point-of-view was a spectacular choice. Great story!

This was just so much fun, and contained a lot of scenes I wished had been in the game. The banter was wonderful, the relationship perfectly IC to me, and the resolution in keeping with the EC but giving a lot more hope than that. Thank you.

I been reading a lot of ME fanfics lately (starting to get that itch to play it all over again) and this is definitely one of the best. Halfway through this chapter I couldn't remember if there were more to come or if it was only a one-shot. I'm so glad it isn't! Really looking forward to reading the rest. :)

Nice wrap-up, there. Solid work throughout. Well done.

Great epilogue! Loved seeing Bailey and the crew together searching for Shepard. The last line is perfect! So glad you wrote more!

This story is awesome!I love how you put the little details in,explainations for the name plate and stuff. I could really feel the emotions while reading through the story too.

Loved this fic! Your ending was great! :D
| Galexz 7/29/12 . chapter 3
What a fantastic ending! This whole story was just great. The characters were perfect - from their dialogue to Garrus' view of them. The scenes you chose were well thought out. And the ending! Love that you included the indoctrination theory (or at least part of it). I'm not as much of a hater as some to the ending, but still think the indoctrination theory is such an awesome idea so it's great to see it implemented. Over all a fantastic job. And just to be an annoying reader, here's a plea for an epilogue (though the ending was great even without it).

Well, DAMN. That was spectacular. Not many people could put that much emotion and depth to Garrus' character in such an amazing way. All the games have been about Shepard, and I love reading stuff from her crew's point of view. Especially Garrus, because he's...well. He's Garrus. I loved the Garrus romance in ME2 and 3; best romance, in my (very much limited) opinion. Thank you so much for this; it was a truly great read!
| SurvivorHawke 7/28/12 . chapter 3
No! It cant end like that! It just cant!
Please for the love of god release a Epilogue or something to clear up the giant cliffhanger!
| servantofclio 7/28/12 . chapter 3
Wonderful, again. So many individual vignettes I loved here. I liked the last part, although I hate to think of anyone having to listen to that conversation with the Catalyst without being able to intervene... but I was also glad that EDI understood the choices being offered.

I've never written a review on a site like this before, because I figure there are plenty of other people out there in internet-land who will say the same thing I want to say. But I thought your work deserved a review that wasn't given vicariously through Anonymous Internet-Goers Everywhere.
This basically boils down to "I REALLY like your stuff." You have an economy of words that gets right to the point without being sparse; it seems like all the words you use are precisely the right words TO use, and they evoke just the right degrees of the right emotions (what appears to be) effortlessly. Your sense of dramatic timing is unusual but refreshing-writing about the moments before or after the big events in the game(s) that many other authors focus on-and it's not just a rehash of events featuring a slightly different Shepard. Your internal dialogue sounds like internal dialogue should, and not overly practiced.
It's pretty clear that you enjoy writing. (Duh. Why else would you write fan-fiction and expose it to cyberspace and its many lurking hostiles? "Write great Mass Effect fan-fiction or you'll never see your family again!") My point is, you SHOULD enjoy writing, because you're GOOD at it.
TL;DR: You're good. Write more stuff.
