ME3: Epilogue Ashley
Five years later Shepard and Ashley walked through the Afterlife bar on Omega, the music was loud and Shepard could see in Ashley's face that she didn't like the music, "I don't know why the council could just us what our mission is," Ashley said, "I mean why do we have to come to this place and talk to that Asari."
"Aria isn't too bad," Shepard said, "you just have to know how not to get on her bad side."
"Still why do we have to report to her," Ashley insisted.
"Aria hold power over the Asari councillor," Shepard said, "during the Reaper invasion she asked the Asari councillor to take care of the fact that she never officially registered coming to the Citadel. The councillor did it like as if she was Aria's slave."
"So you mean that the Asari councillor is corrupt?" Ashley said shocked.
"Maybe," Shepard said, "but it does show how much pull Aria has even on the Citadel."
They approached the area that Aria was in, just before they turn

It had been a week after the defeat of the Collectors. Shepard was meandering through the crowds wrapped in an Alliance issue jacket with its hood up as to avoid attention.
The Citadel was overcrowded as people were gathering to make way back to their evacuated colonies. Spaceships were leaving and docking, people were brushing pass Shepard, not noticing him as if he was any other civilian. There were mostly humans rushing around at the time. As Shepard walked through the crowd, he finally found what he was looking for. He read the holographic sign posted high above his head:
Tayseri Ward, Apartment Complex
Marine Living Quarters, Rooms 200-330
Shepard was here for two reasons; His court appearance for house arrest due to his involvement in the destruction of a heavily populated Batarian colony. He was forced to make the choice to destroy a relay with an asteroid; on which the Batarian colony was located. He destroyed

What the Hell were we thinking going after the Reapers? What made us think we would be able to stop them when countless civilizations before ours fell?
Before London, I found myself thinking this more and more. But then I also started thinking of everything we've accomplished. When Saren turned his back on the Council, they just couldn't see it. They just couldn't believe that one of their own would turn against them. I'd call it human nature but
We opened their eyes. We made them see that Saren was a traitor. It wasn't easy, but through each other's help and support, we proved him a threat to the Galaxy. We stopped him. Not only that, we killed a Reaper. Together, we put an end to Saren's treachery, and destroyed Sovereign. It wasn't without sacrifice, but we sowed t

Shepard's eyes snapped open.
The Dreams. Those damn Dreams!
He pinched the bridge of his nose as he attempted to excise the memory of the child from his mind.
He was so tired. Always so tired.
There constantly seemed to be noise around him; demands made of him, decisions haunting him.
Now there were dreams that wouldn't leave him alone, as if the migraines weren't enough.
And despite EDI's insistence to the contrary, he still heard that damn buzzing sound in the Loft.
It had to be some wiring that some Alliance tech failed to secure when they were gutting the Normandy.
He heard Ashley stir beside him. Kissing her gently on the temple, he lay back down and stared out the Loft's upper porthole.
His mind flashed to Earth to the untold numbers of dead, or worse, and to the horrors that the still living were experiencing every moment.
He remembered what Mordin once said to him. Hard to imagine galaxy. Too many people. Faceless. Statistics. Easy to depersonalize. Goo

Two years later after Shepard had left the council due to all the political bullshit (if he accepted the offer), Shepard wakes up and looks to his right to see Tali laying there beside him her eyes closed and breathing softly, with her mask off and was cuddled up close to Shepard.
"Commander," Edi said contacting Shepard through his omni-tool, "we are approaching the Citadel."
"Thanks Edi," Shepard said as he looked at Tali's face.
"Shepard there something else," Edi said.
"What's that, Edi?" Shepard asked.
"The Quarian Admiralty board wants to talk to you and Tali about the recent news you dropped on them," Edi said.
"Keelah," Tali said drowsily, her eyes still closed, "I knew there was going to be repercussions from telling them that about us, but this is the fifth time they have called."
"Shall we ignore them a bit longer?" Shepard asked.
"No we better see them this time," Tali said as she sat up and put her mask back on.

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**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.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e

Shepard can actually stop the very time simply by deciding what to say!
When Shepard becomes the Galaxy president the first order would be invalidating the dances!
Shepard is so invincible, that even his/her armor doesn`t get scratched in combat!
Sitting behind the boxes is the best way to cure even mortal wounds… Pity nobody but Shepard knows that…
Shepard`s skills are so intimidating, that when he/she drives the vehicle everybody in the range of 2 kilometers fear for their lives, the vehicle crew especially!
Shepard killed 144913 people to save the world… If he/she would have decided to destroy the Reapers would have been put to shame…
Shepard is such a BAMF that he/she has a shield even when not wearing armor!
Shepard is such a trace blazer in everything, that every vital discovery/battle/descision in the modern history simply cannot be made without him/her

They look so happy...
The thought brought a sad smile to my face as I watched them talk and laugh not twenty feet away. If I moved just a little closer, I might just be able to make out what would put such a big smile on the Commander’s face, but I don’t move. A dull ache fills my chest to the point that I can barely breathe as they move to stand next to the railing and Shepard wraps an arm around Liara, the Asari resting her head on the human’s shoulder.
They look so fucking happy…
My long hair blocks out the rest of the galaxy as I bow my head and let the tears fall. I will never be the one who could put the smile on Shepard’s face like Liara could, or be the one she turns to when even the invincible Commander fal

Ashley Williams walked towards the Embassy lounge. The knowledge of Shepard's victory lingered in her head. Just a few days ago Councilor Anderson notified her of Shepard's victory over the Collector's and his betrayal of Cerberus. She felt like an idiot. Even more so when she learned that Garrus, Tali, Joker and Chakwas joined him in his mission. Why did she say those things on Horizon?
Of course she probably screwed up any chance to be with him. She grew fond of him during their mission to take down Saren, but he didn't seem to express the same interest. She always assumed he had a thing with Liara. Or so the rumors went. Maybe she now has the opportunity to find out. Though there was a whole new rumor about who he was with, but it was too crazy to be true.
Ash entered the lounge. It was pretty empty. It only took a quick scan to see Shepard's table. With him were Tali and Garrus. Ash cringed. It was almost like fate was rubbing

So...hmm...how do I explain this. Jane's going to talk about some stuff in here that was never covered in the games. They discussed biotic amps and ports in the ME codices and how it was a very vulnerable point for a biotic since it was a freaking port into their brain/nervous system and they needed to be careful about showering to keep water away from it and such. But what they NEVER told us is what an amp looks like. At least not in the games, and I couldn't find it on Google either so I made it up. Also, they talk about a lot of the physiological differences between a biotic and non-biotic in the codices but they don't discuss biotics and pregnancy. As my Jane is a biotic--Adept, Spacer, Torfan, mostly Paragon--this was something I had to address. And this piece is where I address it. She'll explain it better in the piece, I promise.
If you've read Third Times the Charm, this piece fits into that time frame.

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 was ignoring him, pulling at her armor, not even acknowledging his hand on her shoulder. He let it fall to his side, watching her as she scrutinized the blood that covered her gloved hands before tossing them into her locker.
He had seen her kill people before. It was a part of the job, and at the end of the day, she did her job well. She protected the innocent and made the galaxy safer one shot at a time. But what happened down on Agebinium wasn't her just killing a man; she was settling a score.
"Shepard, you murdered him."
He saw the slight twitch in her shoulders and she looked over one at him, controlled anger flashing in her blue eyes. "I wasn't about to ask him out for drinks, that's for damn sure."
At least she was paying attention to him. It was better than the heavy silence that refused to dissipate during the ride back. "But that doesn't explain why you killed him like that. There was no need"

Tarnished remnants of a heartless destruction
Petrified bodies lying around, their eyes closed
And I, the sole eyewitness left
To testify this pointless cruelty
A ghost without a purpose, a walking dead
My State has won, my country is proud
Raising his bloodstained flag high on the battlefield
'Cause it's worth it, it's worth it
And the guns won't end their fire
Till the last of them goes down to oblivion -
So they said, but then I saw them,
Pitied them, and loved them like brothers:
In our victory I tasted mankind's defeat;
And then it rained, it all poured down
And the water cleansed my tears
Secured me from all my fears
I'm still human, I'm alive.

She stopped to catch a breath, even though it hurt to breath, over her shoulders was the body of her Admiral and her friend, David Anderson, she didn’t remember much, just hitting the button and falling. Her legs buckled and finally gave out, just as a shuttle flew overhead, looking up through swollen blood cracked eyes and bruises she saw two shapes descend down like rockets before the shuttle even landed. Before she could fall once more the weight from her shoulders was lifted and once more the ground fell from under her as she was gently lifted into two powerful arms.
