    Summary

    "He still loved you.”

    “He shouldn’t have.” Flint says back. That’s it. Fate tried to give him a happy ending and he knew it was not for him, knew that the man Thomas looked at him and saw was long gone. He did not trust the sea to take him and decided to drown himself another way.

    (Written in reaction to speculation post-episode 4x04, reading Treasure Island, and sadness.)

    Summary

    Shepard can hardly be blamed for harboring a deep hatred of the batarians. The attack on Mindoir when she was sixteen, in which her family was killed and the colony devastated by slavers, was undoubtedly the defining moment of her life up to that point; her eventual rescue by an Alliance patrol no doubt cemented her decision to enlist.

         - Alan Simonis, Beyond First Contact: Humanity’s Struggle in a Hostile Galaxy, p. 94

    The temptation for the lazy historian is to draw a straight line from the attack on Mindoir to Shepard’s actions at Torfan, but the fact is that by 2178 Shepard had engaged the batarians on multiple occasions—and always disengaged promptly when ordered to do so. Torfan represented not a loss of control but a calculated statement.

         - Sara Janowski, Sword, Shield, and Hammer: Commander Shepard and the Systems Alliance, p. 90

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fascinating look at in-universe Alliance history through the lens of a fem!Shep who took more Renegade choices than Paragon, and calls into question our own perceptions of those key moments in the game, as well as what makes a Renegade or a Paragon at all.

    Wonderfully clever, funny, in character Penny Priddy meets the Institute story. I love it to bits.
