Don't Leave Me Behind... by BloodBandit Don't Leave Me Behind... by BloodBandit
EA/Bioware owns Mass Effect, Kaidan Alenko and Commander Shepard. UNFORTUNATELY!

Worst day ever?
Yes quite so.

Edit: -.- To clarify since I'm not here to start a flame war or anything of the sort: No I did not like the new endings. Yes I am disappointed. No I am not raging over them. No I do not feel satisfied nor do I feel like I was given enough clarity or closure. Yes there was some closure and clarity there. No it was not enough for me to be okay with the endings. Yes I wish I could like them. No I will not insult you or rage at you if you liked the endings, I'm happy that you did, honest.

Having the most heart wrenching scene between a severely injured Kaidan and Shepard caressing his cheek telling him that no matter what happens she'll always love him was probably my favorite scene. In the entire thing, everything else...not so much.

I completely agree. Do you know about MEHEM (the happy ending module)? Makes replaying ME3 bearable.

This image, however, is riveting. Well done.

Indeed I'm aware of the MEHEM ending. Perhaps one day I shall download it, along with a mod that fixes Custom Shep's hair to make it not look so plastic/glued on their head ><. Right now though I'm not even playing any games as I'm away from my PC but I have seen footage of the MEHEM ending, it is quite sweet.


Thank you, I rather loved what they did with that scene. It was one of thew few EC scenes I enjoyed. Now if I'm going to play ME3 I just save it before hitting TIM's base and play the Citadel DLC. Voila, new ending xD.

Oh god, that face. I love you Kaiden, and your voice. I've loved you ever since you were Carth Onasi all those years ago in the world of Star Wars.

This is the reason why I went with the Destroy ending. At least that way my FemShepard would remain alive, and reunite with him. Don't tell me any different.

I'm still having a hard time with the endings...things were taken from us on this one, but we can dream up what we want i suppose.

I don't blame you. The endings still are bad. I haven't played ME3s SP in so long because I don't want to bother with it anymore. I still have a multitude of Shepards that I have to run through the game, but I won't bother with it. The endings are so volatile it makes me never want to touch the series again. But yes, dreaming up better endings is definitely a good alternative. :c :hug:

N'aww....well they certainly know how to create an emotional scene that's for sure. I'd like to thank them for that, this scene was the only one I liked in the extended cut lol. Everything else I hated >.<

I liked the scene, still sucks that if your Shepard survives you see her breath once then go to credit. They better come out with a FOUR!!!

Mmm.....even if Shep does survive though it becomes irrelevant. The whole "Shepard" story seems to be finished so ME4 would be pointless ;^;.

Well even if the Shepard story it over, maybe we could see a history vid or something of the crew meeting back up with each other.

Mmm...This was the only scene I liked. And yea, you finally get to say goodbye for the final time to your LI. But technically it wouldn't be your spouse xD just your lover/boyfriend/girlfriend. It is emotional though, I agree.

I had to play it while I was alone at home because I was like a snotty mess, and no one should have to see that XD

If you're still interested in my story, you can read it here - [link] -- it's not quite done (and it's shaping up to be way longer than I thought) but omg it is cathartic :3

(Yes, I named it Reunion because I am so unoriginal XD)

Hahaha I wasn't a snotty mess, I was just insulted and angry. Stupid slide show *huffs*

Hell yea I'm interested! Lol I love all things Shenko especially fluff related :'3. I usually write angst so fluff is something I can envy as well as enjoy ^-^. :icondragonglomp:

Hahaha, no worries I usually just pick a song title to name my fanfics XD. (Ironically not on purpose, but it usually turns out that way O.o; )

I just prefer the original endings over the EC ones now. God...at least then there was hope that EDI survived, now...no hope!

Indeed, I personally thought it was so rushed I had no idea what was going on the first time I did it but yea. It was a really sweet heartfelt moment that gauged my heart out ;(.

You know... I prefer the theories indoctrinate Shepard's, because this ending makes no sense for me. Shepard goes to die, and how it makes sense to create romance? Person gets just sad :( Thanks BioWare for somehow ending :/ Now I hate them even more! I'd rather go back to the final scene where Shepard catch his breath ... I think that the DLC was a waste of time. Nothing new shows in addition to incidental scenes and kills hope for alive Shepard.
Reply
:iconbloodbandit:
BloodBandit Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
Agreed!

I felt awful and guilty for romancing people in the third game. It was such a betrayal in the end and now with these new scenes, while if you watch until the end Shepard DOES take their last breath in the rubble still, nothing is elaborated on and thus you're left scratching your head wondering why. Stupid bittersweet nonsense, it definitely hurts more now for me as well. At this point I'd take indoctrination as well over this.

If I didnt like Kaidan from the first ME, I had to romance him just because of his facial expression and his eyes >.<

Aww, well I'm sorry you didn't like him in the first game. But but...just look at them big brown pleading eyes. So dreamy! He has clearly converted you xD.

It seems I`ve expressed myself wrong (I didnt practice my English-speaking skills for a while xD)... I wanna say that I dont understand people who hate Kaidan (which is my favourite companion since ME1) - he`s co cute that I just cant romance anyone else :drool:
Reply
:iconbloodbandit:
BloodBandit Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012
Oh! Well for not having practiced in a while you're still very understandable! Yea I don't understand people who hate Kaidan either. He's my favorite companion in the entire series for sure, he's my favorite character in general for any game. I can't romance anyone else either, if I see Kaidan it's all over, he's the only man I will romance with my female Shepards xD.

Did you bring him with you to the final push through London? Have to bring him with you xD! I made the mistake of taking Javik/EDI the first time and I was like "...I wonder if there's a difference between buddies and love interests." Went back, played it...ow my heart.
