Eternal. Infinite. Immortal. by Sorael-Ignis Eternal. Infinite. Immortal. by Sorael-Ignis
My favorite ending with Shepard fully re-purposed.

I decided to make my own imaging of default shep after seeing the amazing one ~makani had done hnnnnnggg.

It's such an interesting and sad route, and I tear up after I hear her voice returning to normal when she says: "The woman who gave up her life, to save the many." Destroy is my canon ending but Control is my mind trip 'that's fascinating' ending.

I might move this to scraps later, I just liked the outcome enough to make a decent finished one. I'd like to, at some point, make pieces for control, destroy and synthesis.

Ooo, my Head-Canon M!Shep sorta ends with way, only with his telepathic twin sister (don't ask) taking this role. She reconstitutes her old body using her limitless intelligence and tech allotted to her and places a copy of her old mind in it. Everybody wins!

lol Yeah, headcanon mshep developed into a weird one. Headcanon Femshep is a bit more traditional, save her power levels (her power easily dwarfs either Jack or Samara and she doesn't have an implant...I know, I need to tone back the Mary-Sueness of my characters, but they're in my head so I can have them be however I want ;P)

Creepy... I love it. This is definitely not a "scrap" in my book - it may be relatively simple, but it's a beautiful piece of art. My current playthrough is going to end with Control, just to see what it's like... it fits my megalomaniacal alternate universe renegade Shep quite well, I think. :D

Thank you :D It's a scrap to me because it's just glorified concept art. Control was the best ending to come out of that whole fiasco.

I always pick destroy but I really am considering this for current ME1 to 3 playthrough, I'm liking the whole becoming something more than human, its like doctor Manhattan in watchmen, she remembers everything but looses her humanity slowly

synthesis is far too nice an ending, it just seems too good to actually happen and is not that interesting....also space magic

OH! That's a great example :> All the more tragic blegh. Synthesis is crap imo, I don't mind if other people like it but it just contradicts so much of the series that it makes me want to slap whomever had written it.

Very nice! I like the idea of holographic hair. I like the control ending too. Even though some people say that it doesn't solve anything. I say that depends on your Shepard.

:iconsorael-ignis:
Sorael-Ignis Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I imagine it wouldn't solve anything if her thoughts eventually dissipated and survival again became the priority or she's indoctrinated. It is like you said, depends on your Shepard. Thanks for the compliment :D

I think Control is fascinating too, whether fake/indoctrinated or real or canon or not :D This sort of creeps me out (in a good way!)

Synthesis is my indoctrination theory ending, plus then it pays homage to Hordes of the underdark which I loved.

It's scary. The Catalyst-Shepard sends chills down my spine when s/he talks about what s/he was, what s/he is now and all. It makes feels that one day s/he will share the Catalyst point of view and use the Reapers. :tears: It's sad also, so very sad. Our poor Shepard !

Anyway it's well done.

Destroy is my canon as well. It suits the tone of the ME series much better than the others, although Control was pretty damn awesome as well.

There's too much wrong with Bioware's sparkle magic synthesis ending for me to ever consider it being an option. Destroy is the only true viable path for me.

Destroy will always be my canon, I love Shepard too much and a hell of people owe the woman some drinks, but this is a rather interesting and intriguing take on Control. I think I would give it a shot if Shepard returned in a human-sized Reaper crafted body, guess she'd be like EDI in a way.

Though I expect the conversations upon her return to be rather awkward. :XD:

I think it's incredibly unfair and forced how they did the 'consequences' for the endings. Normally I'm fine either way if they protagonist survives/dies but Shepard has been through so much (and died already) It's a whole crockpot of feelings but I agree hahah
