"To the Sol Alliance and all of Humanity, greetings. I am Harbinger and I have traveled across the galaxy to meet you."
Shepard wasn’t the first to reach the Catalyst, eons ago someone else did, and they chose Synthesis
Though when the choice was made, Synthesis wasn’t for every living being, it was only for the Reapers and they have sought it ever since.
With the Reapers now fully hybrid Synthetic-Organics beings how will the cycle change? How will the galaxy react?

- Part 1 of Synthesis
Extra bits from Mass Effect Synthesis. Could be extra scenes, alternative scenes or things that are just plain weird. These are things that didn't make it into the main story but still might give someone a laugh or a smile or illustrate things in a different way.
- Part 2 of Synthesis
During the process of Synthesis, it's necessary to get quite close to one's organic partner. Harbinger knew this. He never even questioned it and when the time came he initiated that closeness with all the skill a billion plus years of experience gave him. He knew what he desired, and he very much looked forward to teaching Shepard to share that desire.
Synthesis meant one mind, it did not mean one body but by the time he was finished Shepard's body would only respond to his and that was one unforeseen consequence of synthesis that he could honestly say he was more than pleased with.
This is meant to be read as an additional scene in Chapter 11.
