I went to reviews just to see people happy about Baldur's Gate reference but found nothing. So...Go for the eyes, Boo! :D

This has been *blows nose* the wildest ride. Thank you, writer. It's like 3 am where I live and my brain can hardly composed a sentence but my little fangirling heart is bursting.

Ma feels. You're killing me writer, you killing me.

Jesus what are you doing to me? This is so adorably adorable I cannot even string a proper sentence, goddamn. Seriously, beyond your fantastic hability to write, you have this even more fantastic hability to make me care so much about this relationship I have previously cared almost nothing about (before reading your story). I mean, I have all this feels now. It's your fault. I love you.
I'm going to read that story you recommended because now I'm an addict to "bad" Liara.
Thank you, I love it!

Dear Lord, I'm shipping Liara/Traynor, what in the hell? You mad ethat happen. This is sorcery, word sorcery. This is one of the most fucked up stories I've ever read, and I mean that in a good way.

THAT WAS A FANTASTIC CHAPTER OMG! I'm currently replaying ME3 and even though my Shep is nothing like yours, I still feel yours is true. It's strange. By all accounts Shep should be a lot fucked up but isn't so your story is like taking all what could have gone wrong times 1000 and see where that leads you. I love angst in fiction. I love your fic. Thank you for wimriting it because I doubt I'll ever forget it.

Well, goddammit, just when I thought I couldn't ship more people in Mass Effect...
I'm loving this ultra dark version of ME. It's different, disquieting. I should be doing other things but fuck it, I'm going to keep reading.

I'm so on board with this, it feels like being in the passenger seat of a Mako driven by the renegadest of renegades Shepard and a "I'll flay you with my mind" Liara that actually went ahead with the flaying. Woohoo!
I'm a bit scared.
| nattysuits chapter 1 . 11/30/2018
I don't know what this is, it's so far away from my experience of Shepard and Liara, but I'm 1000% behind this. I like the rawness of it.

I've had a few hours to reflect on the ending.
I feel-bruised. I longed so much for Shepard to get what she wanted, as well as what she needed.
I keep thinking back to the points where their paths could have branched, but didn't, because Murieall couldn't change enough. I guess the point of no return must have been in Anderson's apartment, where Liara was still trying to connect and Shepard had promised to accept her, but just couldn't.
I wondered, would I have been happier if Liara had died by Shepard's side? Or if she'd lived, but without Traynor?
Part of me knows that Liara has to survive and has to have a future to look forward to, since she represents the lives and futures of everyone that Shepard's sacrifice has saved, and how much Shepard has changed by being able to let her go. But it still-hurts.
I know that Murieall would've found it difficult to live during the peace and reconstruction phase to follow, but I don't know. Part of me was still hoping for it. Ridiculous, I know. They never even had the blue babies conversation; Liara gave that up, for her.
At least now her suffering is over. I suppose at least she had Tali. Maybe once I'm done grieving for Murieall I can somehow bring myself to feel happy for Traynor.
Did you always intend this to follow the classical lines of a tragedy, or were there ever any other endings you were tempted to take?
| Aziethe chapter 54 . 1/25/2017
Even though this was the ending I expected it was not the one I wanted. But I suppose anything else would have been unrealistic.
Thank you for this amazing fic and your fascinating interpretations of the characters, especially your Shepard. I know I'm going to have to reread this at some point.
You might also want to mark it as complete, as I originally was nervous that it had been abandoned due to the meta data.

I love that instead of a goofy party and fanfictiony celebration we get Shepard smashing a piano. Fits the ME3 experience so much better than the actual dlc.
| Aziethe chapter 50 . 1/25/2017
Reading this was agonising. I love your Shepard so much it hurts. I can't wait for them to be together again but knowing what's coming I dread it also. I can't see many of them surviving the fight to come.
| Aziethe chapter 26 . 1/25/2017
Omg you are such a tease! Good on Traynor for standing up for herself. Against both of them now.
This ship is like crack, I can't get enough of it. I loved the way you resolved Rannoch.
| Aziethe chapter 16 . 1/25/2017
Oh my god. I want to keep reading but I have to go to bed. The relationship between liara and Traynor is so beautiful but I'm glad they're just friends. At least someone is looking out for Liara. I can't wait to see what happens after Thessia.
