IT’S OVER!  I am… stunned?  Amazed?  What?  I don’t even know.  All I know is I couldn’t bear to leave my Shepard in the rubble of the Citadel.  She had to atone, and she had to move on, and so did all of her friends.  Thank you so much to everyone who’s been readiing this, it has been a delight to chat with you all and it gives me endless warm fuzzies to know you all liked what is in essence my extended headcanon.  I’ve never written any fic this long before, but I’m glad it’s been well-received.  Thank you all again!

*****************************************************

Shepard’s hands moved methodically over her cup of tea, dangling the tea bag with one hand, gently swirling the mug of hot water with the other.  The lights were dim in the kitchen area, given the late hour.  They were due to reach the Sol System in the morning.

She had only needed a single day of long thought to make up her mind.  She would take up the post of Commander again, and Kaidan would return to his spec ops team.  Kaidan’s smile had been warm and real when she gave him the news.  Dr. Chakwas had surprised her with a high five, and Traynor with a delighted hug that she quickly pulled out of, looking embarrassed but pleased.  Steve and James had insisted on a celebratory shot of tequila, which turned into a double shot when James mentioned that he had received notice: the Alliance was starting up N7 training again soon.  Laughingly James had told her to make sure not to wreck the ship without him around to keep an eye on her, but the fierceness of his handshake belied how much he would miss her.

Shepard removed and discarded her tea bag, curling both hands around the mug.  She inhaled the sweet scents of peppermint and chamomile.  She knew that her body would not be able to withstand the life of a soldier forever, no matter how many implants they put in there; but until her body gave out completely, she would not feel right behind a desk or in an office.  Here amidst the throb of the ship’s engines was where she belonged.

To make up for my shitty day I made a new Shepard.  Astra Shepard, colonist, ruthless, sentinel.  Because I love biotics too much to stay away from them entirely.  She’s going to be Renegonish (never full Renegade… never ever unless I want to hate myself).  She’s cute as a button with her scars and her mostly Korean heritage and her black bob haircut and her omni-tool.  We’ll see how this goes.

Haha why do you think it took me 60,000 words of angst to get my Shepard through the guilt of choosing destroy? I never saw the point of choosing that and then fanwanking EDI and the geth to come back.

I’ve known for years that my middle brother was an alcoholic, but now it’s confirmed my youngest brother is addicted to painkillers and is going to rehab. Explains the lies and the stealing of the last few years :(.

Has anyone had a family member with something similar? I’ve always known the three of us have addictive personalities (I’ve just been careful to never try any drugs because I knew I could fuck up with them if I did, and my addictive tendencies are satisfied with hours and hours of Internet/fandom) but this just feels like a punch in the gut. He had been stealing small amounts from everyone but he tried to forge signatures on my dad’s checks. My disabled veteran father, by the way.

So this all just really sucks. At least he’s not sick enough to be inpatient but it still sucks.

We usually try to avoid the females because what do you do with a female Turian? Do you give her breasts? What do you do? Do you put lipstick on her?

Yeah I mean it’s not like they could’ve just look exactly like the males or anything. No that wouldn’t make any sense and they’d risk being accused of lazy game design! Why take the chance???? FEMALES, WHY BOTHER?

Almost done, guys.  Holy shit.  This chapter has some good news and some sad stuff.  (Of course!)  And I finished the last chapter today.  O_O  I was really stuck on it this week, but I think I’ve managed to sort it out.  

***************************

The days began to pass into some semblance of normal.  The work on Tiptree proceeded slowly, but surely.  When the rubble had been thoroughly scanned, work began of preserving materials that could be repurposed and destroying those that could not, freeing up valuable space for rebuilding.  It took a few weeks, and though Shepard heard occasional complaints from the crew about the tedium of the work, she suspected that most of them felt the way that she did; grateful to be doing something that helped rebuild, instead of merely working to destroy.  

She grew stronger every day.  She still carried a cane, but it was no longer the solid model that she had been using before.  She now had a retractable type that could be shortened and clipped to her belt, and she often could go short distances without it, using it mostly for stabilization instead of complete support.  The nerves in her leg were beginning to remember their connections, and she was back to using over-the-counter medication for pain relief, instead of the heavy-duty medications under Dr. Chakwas’ supervision.

She even began to wear her armor again; at first only for an hour at a time, but gradually her muscle memory began to take over.  Her strong right side compensated for her lagging left, and she began to practice brief drills in her cabin or out in the open fields behind the ship.  Dr. Chakwas told her that without her preexisting cybernetics, she would still be on bed rest.  Shepard didn’t care how she was able to move around again, just that it was possible.

Shepard and Garrus spoke easily to each other again.  They had entire days where they did not need to dwell on the things that had happened to them; they also had days where they talked it all over again, taking care not to withdraw from each other.  That day in the main battery had helped, as much as Shepard hated to admit it, recalibrate them.  She said as much to Garrus and laughed when he shook his head at the awful pun.

Listening to the way that EDI changes throughout ME3—not just her opinions and her personality, but the very intonation of her voice and how she starts expressing things that sound like emotions and desires—regardless of whether those changes are just things she’s added to her programming in order…

Sometimes I feel like that even when Shepard is with others, Liara always loves Shepard, romantically or not.
