I'll Still Find You by Nightfable I'll Still Find You by Nightfable
A Commission for Ripghoti.

"I chose the synthesis ending. In the citadel dlc, Jack tattoos Shepard and talks about a guy she was running with a while back. Something happened to the guy and the only way she found him was because he wore a unique type of boots. So she tells Shepard that with this tattoo (which looks really cool I should add), she'll be able to find him no matter what. So the way I see it, most of Shepard's armor was blown off in the last dash toward the beam. That's what Jack finds, not Shepard. She spent day after day, month after month, combing through the rubble with her students and former teammates. One by one they left till it was her and Garrus still searching. Garrus tells her its time to let Shepard go. This picture is Jack finally accepting that she can't keep her promise, that she can't find Shepard. The title I suggested (I'll Still Find You) was a twist of her feelings, even though she knows she can't find Shepard, she'll never fully stop searching."

Good Work, though I dislike the Synthesis ending. The unique boots belonged to none other than Rodriguez.

What makes it worse/better is that Shepherd is right there. He's in the green that encompasses her body and the bodies of everyone else in the universe. She might not be able to find him, but he will always be with her....



GAH FEELZzzzzz

Wow, excellent way of putting it. I never thought of the synthesis ending like that, Shepard being a part of all living beings in the galaxy after sacrificing himself/herself to save it.

Yeah, that's how I interpreted the Synthesis ending. I ended up going the Renegade ending with my Femshep even though she was a Paragon because I understood that ending differently: To destroy the Reapers is the entire reason for this fight. Sure, EDI and dies, but in 3 EDI said that she would gladly sacrifice her life in order for Joker to have his because he freed her, and if shepherd had to make a decision that would threaten her life she would be fine with it if it meant saving Joker.

In my eyes, the Renegade decision was actually the Paragon route because there would always be a sacrifice no matter the choice, and the renegade option was the only 100% fool proof route that the Reapers would never come back. That, and Synthesis seems way too perfect to me.

A friend of mine wrote a story about the synthesis ending, and how Shepard's soul was effectively transferred into the biological supercomputer that was created with the synthesis.  Shepard was very much aware and alive, and could, with effort, communicate, interact with and be seen by the physical world (describing it as something similar to how they felt in the Geth Consensus).  The story was later given a certain amount of credibility in the EC ending, which shows Kasumi interacting with a spectre of Keiji (whereas all of the other endings show her staring at the graybox).

Have a small criticism, the strap on her waist and thighs don't make sense.  They wouldn't sit like that.

Otherwise, lovely picture and story.

The strap widens and is on an angle going down her thighs as you can see in this picture: www.aicosu.com/uploads/1/0/2/9…

kato42 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2014
Okay.  I'm just thinking it would bunch up a bit in her lap if it doesn't stretch much, or if it is stretchy it would shorten and be a straight line from her waist to the thigh instead of hugging it close.

Small detail, not important, just something I thought of.

:)  Reminds me.  There was a cartoonist I read about once who refused to draw people with their legs crossed, he could never get the folds in the pants right so he just decided not to draw them that way.

This makes me really sad, but in a good way.  The description text goes with the image very well and I find my stomach dropping and my eyes tearing slightly.  Your art has impacted me emotionally, and I feel like I'm better for it.

This is so sad. It's terrible that Shepard had to die but even more terrible of what the Love Interest has to go through after. You really show that in this piece and to me it's the most heart felt ME piece I've seen.
