I started reading this story out of curiosity earlier this evening and I honestly just couldn't stop. It is genuinely and completely perfect. Mass Effect, and the whole story, has never felt so complete, so real and so wonderful as it does now after reading your version. Especially the final chapters and Epilogues. The Keepers? Absolutely BRILLIANT idea, I found myself wondering about them while playing the games and why they seemed so essential but were just sort of ignored after the first game. This was just PERFECT! Thank you so much for taking all the time to write this even when life got in the way. It made me smile so much and inspired me to keep writing (not that anything I write will ever be as good as this pure brilliance!) just for the pure love of it and this whole universe BioWare made us all fall in love with. Thank you so much for this!

I really loved watching Traynor "join the crew", so to speak, and the personal interplay between Shepard and Kaidan is heating up - getting put on hold a lot, but it's actually working well. Hope they're not too frustrated... heh!

Poetry in motion. That's how your combat team of a reunited Biotic Team Supreme reads. Man, that battle was fun. And erotic. Whew!

Karra has her own memorial service tradition! *runs off for tissues* Darn it, you made me cry...
And then we swing right into the admiration of Major Alenko... (nice!) and some reconciling... (whoohoo! FINALLY!). The armor comment was a classic, and no mistake.

Garrus, I love you. You're the homicidal big brother Shepard never had. Great fun to read!
| Eleneri chapter 24 . 3/21/2013
I love how Shepard comments on how nice the view is, and when Kaidan agrees, he's actually looking at her. *romantic sigh* And they finally kissed! A very nice pick me up from the ever-depressing death of Thane.
| Eleneri chapter 23 . 3/21/2013
OK, heartbreaking chapter here. But it's heartbreaking in a good way, because it's a needed catharsis. I love how Chakwas and Joker are actually more qualified to give care instructions than Kaidan is, and the protective Garrus and James routine is giving me ideas...

*somewhere in an alternate universe, a candle is lit on the Normandy, and Taps is played on a slender silver flute.*
Mordin, you are fallen, but never forgotten.
| Eleneri chapter 20 . 3/21/2013
This chapter was so romantic... *happy sigh* But seriously, you two, just kiss and get it over with.
Also, Jack's relationship advice priceless.
| Eleneri chapter 19 . 3/21/2013
I like your version of Jack, and the bond with Shepard is obvious and nicely handled. You could practically hear the sparks fly between her and James. Now that would be a fun relationship...
| Eleneri chapter 18 . 3/21/2013
War stories with Joker! *happy squeal*

This is all lovely to read, but the best part was Thane as matchmaker, who can nudge people to mend hearts and save the galaxy.
| Eleneri chapter 15 . 3/21/2013
Wonderful inclusion of Thane in this chapter. I was hoping to see this happen. Thanks for making it so.
| Eleneri chapter 9 . 3/21/2013
Oh, nicely played! My version of Kaidan wouldn't have been so nice about someone disparaging Shepard; but yours controlled himself nicely. Mission first, and his is to spread the truth. Great to see!

Lovely that Shepard is surrendering - and I use the term loosely - but dictating the terms. That's our girl!
