Four streaks of blue later and they're off. Shepard walks slowly into the shallows, feeling the sand between her toes, when something shiny catches her eye. Bending down she picks up a beautiful white seashell. A memory surfaces as she rubs her fingers over the grooves. "Would have liked to run tests on the seashells."
"Mordin, I'm sorry."
"I'm not, had to be me....Someone else might have gotten it wrong."
A tear runs down Kaycee's cheek at the thought. "I miss you Mordin. Yo

Liara walks over to the window and lifts her daughter into her arms so she can get a better look. "That, sweetie, is Samara. She's a good friend of your father and I. She's a justicar."
Rinyn looks up at her mother with a puzzled expression. "What's a justicar?"
"They're an old order of asari warriors. They are proud, noble, and selfless. Actually, they're like the heroes in the stories your dad reads to you."
Rinyn's eyes widen in wonder, her gaze moving back to the justicar. "Wow....she's like a superhero."

Jack stands unsure in the doorway, watching both Shepard and Liara taking off in the dark blue car. She takes a deep breath, "Well, here goes nothing."
The sounds of shuffling footsteps reaches her ears. Turning she sees little Syren coming towards her, a dark brown teddy bear clutched tightly to her chest with both arms. She comes to stop right in front of Jack, looking up into her brown eyes with a mixture of apprehension and curiosity. Suddenly she holds out the bear to Jack. "Well now, who's this?"
Syren doesn't say anything for a few seconds, but then quietly says, "Athena."
Jack crouches down and takes the bear's paw. "Hi t

The kitchen of the Shepard house is alive with streaks of blue and white. Miranda leans against the counter, mixing bowl in hand, vigorously stirring a mass of chocolate chip pancake batter. She watches the other girls carefully, making sure they're not doing something dangerous. Oriana mans the stove top, several pans already giving off the wonderful sounds of sizzling and popping. Rinyn stands on a step-stool next to Ori, handing Oriana the next pieces of bacon. "How's it coming Ori?"
Her sister gives her a smile over her shoulder. "Rin and I got this under control. Elle? You got those eggs?"

Velair screws up her eyes, taking in the chessboard. Sure enough, her king was in check by the black queen. "I should have listened to my dad. I don't think I'll be able to beat you."
The synthetic woman across from her smiles. "Maybe. Maybe not. I have found that it's the unknown that makes the game fun."
Velair puts her hands to her temples, gently rubbing them. "That's easy for you to say Aunt EDI. You've already played through your next hundred moves in your head. I'm stuck barely holding my own."

A small tug at his leg snaps him back to reality. Looking down, he spies little Syren looking up at him hesitantly, a teddy bear clutched tightly in one arm. A warm smile spreads across his face.
"Something I can do for you, Little Bit?"
Syren blushes furiously and looks down at her feet. Wrex chuckles to himself. (She is so unlike her father) "It's alright, I don't bite."

Kasumi looks out across the yard to where Liara and Kaycee sit together on the porch resting. Liara sleeps soundly in Shepard's arms. Kasumi turns back to Ayrene. "Okay, let's go over the list.....master thief? Check. Loyal apprentice?" Ayrene gives her a big smile. "Close enough.

Shepard was standing in a dark forest, his legs frozen, his feet deep in mud, his arms reaching out. As the ashes fell, so did his tears. The land stretching away before him, a white spotlight shinning down below. The screams of so many pouring into his ear. On the other stretch of land, a beautiful Asari with tears pouring down her cheeks. Her form-fitted combat suit accentuated to every curve on her body, his lover Liara T'soni.

was buried in his pillow. Shepard moaned in annoyance. Whatever was touching
his back started to swirl around. He realized it was a finger. It was joined by
another finger that slid up his back giving him goosebumps. Shepard then felt a
kiss on his right shoulder. He tiredly laughed. Then he felt a strong nibbled

Shepard looked up to see Tali, wearing a loose robe, laughing hysterically. He
couldn't help but smile. "I've had worse ways to wake up."

Kaycee drapes her arm over her daughter's shoulders. She can scarcely believe how quickly she's grown up. Just seems like yesterday that Ayrene was barely up to her knees, now a tall, slender, beautiful woman stands beside her. She gives her an affectionate squeeze, "So what do you think sweetie? I told you that I would take you dancing for your eighteenth birthday. This place good enough?"
Ayrene's eyes take in the flashing lights, the pounding music, the dancing patrons, and she smiles. "You really are the coolest dad ever. Mom would completely freak if she knew you brought me here."
Kaycee imagines the fury that would come down on her if her wife knew where they were. She shudders at the thought, "Don't remind me Aya. Now, shall we have some fun?"
She guides Ayrene over to the bar, raising a hand in greeting to the Turian bartender. "Raker! Long time no see!"

Liara T'Soni-Shepard gives her arm an affectionate squeeze. "Because Doctor Chakwas and Kelly both agree that you need to do this." She takes Terra's hand and places it at the growing bulge at her stomach, "For her if not for yourself."
Terra sighs inwardly as they make their way into a newly reconstructed part of the Citadel. Lush foliage from all corners of the galaxy surrounds the entrance to the memorial garden. She stops dead in her tracks in the doorway. "I really don't want to do this. I wish you all would stop worrying about me."
"Shepard….You haven't taken any time to grieve for those lost in the war. You may put up emotional barriers, but you can't hide the truth from me. You're scared. You don't want to face your grief because you're afraid." She gently pulls on her

Little Syren Shepard opens her eyes sleepily, gently rubbing the sleep from them. She glances around her room, the pale orange light of the sunrise peaking through her curtains. She carefully hops off her bed, wrapping her blanket around her shoulders from the cold, and picks up her teddy bear, Athena. Syren shuffles over to the curtains and peeks around them, standing on tiptoe to see over the window sill. A small gasp escapes from her, followed by a quiet giggle. White, as far as the eye can see, the entire countryside covered in a thick blanket of snow. Realizing that it's Christmas morning, Syren quietly shuffles out of her bedroom, moving one door down on the right, "Aya? You awake?"
Her big sister is sitting in her bed, reading a holo-comic, clad in red sweatpants and sweatshirt. She looks up at Syren, "Well, good morning and merry christmas Sy."
"Mewwy Chwistmas Aya."

The grieving doctor doesn't bother with an umbrella, instead letting the rain wash over her skin, mixing with her tears. She begins her slow walk towards the large group of people crowded underneath a wide awning, when suddenly a hand grips her shoulder reassuringly, and the rain stops. Looking over her shoulder, she finds Garrus holding an umbrella over her, his expression unreadable. He nods to her, his grip speaking volumes as he guides her towards the crowd. As they near the group, Liara notices that nearly everyone has shown up today.

**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.

It was very quiet. The gunfire had died down. There were no mechanical roars. It was beautiful but frightening at the same time. When the red energy erupted from the Citadel, it caused every reaper to fall over and die. Their corpses littered earth's surface and her orbit. Despite the war, earth was in relatively good shape. Major city centres were destroyed, but some remained as well as hundreds, if not thousands, of smaller cities, towns and factory districts that remained fairly intact.
The sacrifice required to defeat the reapers was immense. The geth immediately deactivated when the red energy wave passed through them
