My hero... by Ma-rin My hero... by Ma-rin
Here's the helmet painting as promised but a little bit different than here [link] as I didn't want a cute one. I'm not satisfied with it and it's still pretty rough, but I have to continue the sketchdump, haha. Btw, if you have any ideas for it, feel free to tell me about them, so I can deliver: [link]

---
I imagine this scene (which totally lacks background, durrr) happening at the end of LOTSB and after Liara told Shepard about how she desperately tried to save the Commander's corpse from the Collectors to choose the lesser evil and give it to The Illusive Garbageshitbagasshole. As she struggles to hold back the tears, Shepard thanks her by taking her old helmet and putting it on Liara's head, whispering something like...

Well, what is she whispering? I don't know, maybe you have a good idea :'D

Man, you are your own worst critic! This picture is AMAZING!!!!!! Every time I look at it I love it more!! :squee:
And I think Shepard would say something like, "You don't need to say anything, Liara. It's okay. Thank you for saving me." Or something. Man, this picture is making me want to write another one-shot fanfic about these two! Thank you so much for sharing! :+favlove: :love: :love: :squee: :squee: :squee:

FemShep- Liara?

Liara-yes...

Femshep-You have something in your teeth.

Great picture though. I can imagine her thanking her for trying to save her when everyone else probably wrote her off as dead.

This is a great piece!

For me it represents Shep's version of a mindmeld that she shares with Liara. By putting the battered and tight helmet on Liara, she gets some sense of the pain, fright and helplessness that Shep felt, when she got sucked out of the Normandy and burned to death upon reaching that planets atmosphere.

In pain there is love...

The tenderness here can't be understated! :3 And who cares if there's no background? You thought FemShep and Liara mattered the most, and I can't argue!

What's Shep whispering? Well, wishing to be a better writer than anyone working for BioWare, ahem!...

"The past doesn't matter, Liara. What does matter is you gave us a second chance for a future...together." :heart:

Amazing work again!

Love the picture! I can see this scene playing out like this:

Liara: "Goddess, you were dead..."

Shepard: "I got better." (reaches for the broken N7 helmet and places it Liara's head) "And its all because of you, you didn't give up on me. Why was that, Liara? I believe it was because you knew we could reclaim what had been stolen from us. Do you still believe it? Are you willing to risk your heart again?"

Liara: "I spent two years mourning you. So if we are going to try this, I need to know you are always coming back."

Shepard: Liara, you know that is a promise I can't make, not with Reapers coming. I can promise you, I will fight like hell to make sure we get our 'happily ever after'" Assuming I'm going to have something special to come back to. Am I?

I don't know why it isn't! Like everyone else as said, if you factor in LOTSB and staying true to her all game, the whole relationship between then in ME3 feels disjointed. I read on the forums that there is a bug in one of the scenes, where she is suppose to recognize that you've been more then friends for some time, just cant remember which one. Maybe they'll patch it?

:iconma-rin:
Ma-rin Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I bet that's the scene when she invites you on the Citadel, because there she says something about how she wishes to be friends and you say "OR MORE THAN THAAAAT?!" no matter if you romanced her in the previous games or not. Only the following scene differs a bit I believe.
I hope they patch it! It was pretty disappointing...

Here is the link to the discussion of the bug and an actual fix for it. Its the first time you visit her in the old XO office. Apparently the citadel scene is as intended, kind of your last chance to back out of a romance. Personally, I think with Liara this scene should be your lock in point if you played LOTSB.
