I toyed with the idea of having one of my multiplayer characters make that sacrifice of life while Shepard pleads to take the burden upon himself, but is too badly wounded to outrun anyone - but ultimately decided destroying the Reapers was best for reasons not as shallow as "Shepard lives"
There was too much adrenaline for me to more than tear up at that point, because I had faith, faith that that was not the end. But then the end came. And went. And then this was burning in my mind AND ALL THE CRYING.
But, beautiful, beautiful work. I love the way you have the frame split, and the beam in the background, and how both Shep and Kaidan have such defined, clear expressions. Makes for much <333
Yep. With Ash, it was a little different, because I'd seen her walls come down before. But when my FemShep said goodbye to Kaidan and he just looked at her with that face, covered in blood and barely standing. You could see every part of him breaking as Garrus dragged him away. I owed him so many bro-hugs.
Harbri must like this ship too, he didn't attack them while they were saying goodbye xD (that's the only awkward and weird thing in this cutscene ) Anyway I fucking love this scene! It brought to me all my otp feels ;^; And the Kaidan's "beated puppy" face expression just broke my heart <eternal creys>
That's not the only weird thing in this cut scene. There are no reaper soldiers, only Harbinger. But for some reason the Normandy's security team keeps firing shots from their assault rifles in random directions. WTF are you shooting at DUMBASSES????? Killer Reaper Boulders????
