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....

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.
