It's tragically beautiful. I like the bitter sweet endings. Well, they were a little more bitter than sweet but I think you get my point. 

It's interesting to think that Thane could actually be part of the Reaper trick to pull Shepard into choosing control. I like that sinister thought.

I felt that way when I played the first Dragon Age and (having personally had a background of being sexually assaulted, too) made the mistake of choosing a female Elf who fell in love with Alistair. BIG MISTAKE. Never touched another one of the games until oh... this year?! I feel your pain, I feel your pain.

I can't decide whether this is the creepiest or the saddest piece I've ever seen for this couple. This is the control ending, right? My heads switching between two things, either it's spiritual, or Shep genuinely working out that this is the choice he'd have most approved of, or whether... Actually this is the nasty villainous extent to which those manipulative bastard Reapers (and that godawful spacegodchild) would go to, to *make* her choose this option, or any option, so that she doesn't refuse: making her *imagine* this is what Thane would support.

Which is it?! I demand to know! LoL!

In the meantime though, I'm going around DA scrolling through my search results and asking lots of artists for permissions to post their stuff to the albums of a Facebook page I admin called Mass Effect Female Shepard. It'd be an honour to include yours, if you're willing. If you have a FB page of your own, I could share from there? To be honest though, I'd still love to add this one with your permission even if I also share it because it is *special*.

Truly epic work you've done here, and I haven't seen the like, so it's really novel too!

Hei , i'm happy you like my drawing .:P I made the same mistake as you with Dragon Age but after Alistair dumped me I wanted revenge so I made him have a demon baby with Morrigan so I can survive and then ran away with Zevran. It was totally worth it.

Yes , this is the control ending. :3 Part of the magic of this drawing is figuring out what it means , depending on how you played and if you romanced Thane or not, your own version of it is really interesting. For me it was a way I imagined Shep coping with the end and her choices through the game , Thane appearing there is something she imagined to ease her pass.

:3 Feel free to post it on FB, no I don't have my own FB, sorry. Hei all I ask is leave a link with my dev account to it and of course share with me the FB album link, I wanna see all the cool art you gathered!

Just wanted to let you know I *finally* added this to our albums (sorry for the delay - life has been HELL for me and my husband, ALL YEAR LONG so far) and invited fans to comment their interpretations.  :) Here's a link to where it is now:…
