So... a week left before the release of ME3, right? Yeah!
Part of this dialogue was inspired by a looong time ago conversation with ~FoxlingTM and I make the most of it to link those Garrus lines we all know ;)
I'm not completely satisfied with some panels, but if I keep staring at them, I'll erase the whole page.

Thanks to :iconarwing: for his beta-read!

Mass Effect characters belong to Bioware.
I’ve been reading many fanfics for almost a year, so if anyone spots something familiar, do tell me and I’ll be delighted to quote the author+fic that inspired it ;)

I like how she's muscled. Not a thin little model.

Thanks! Shepard's a soldier so... some muscles are needed, IMO. I'm glad to see you agree ^^

Goddammit, stop with the adorable tenderness between these two. I hate it when awesome artists create such wonderful moments between Mass Effect characters... why am I grinning from ear to ear?

Said it before, will say it again: When she really, truly smiles, it is such a beautiful sight.
Garrus is definitely, by FAR, Number One in the romance subplots in the entire game series.

Ok, I can stop the tender moments, but, how I'll be able to make you grin? :?

I think you are right: Shepard saves those smiles only for her turian friend.

I have to try Tali's romance, but I have to agree with you: Garrus romance is one of the best in the game!

With Tali, I have to say, she really is so adorable in the romance subplot of hers.
And even expressing her feelings in a physical way shows how much she cares about Shepard. As she said herself, a kiss could put her in the hospital.

While the Goodbye scenes in ME3 (youtubed 'em...dammit, I've got to get the third game sooner or later...) has Garrus firmly in first place for me because it was the only one that actually got me to shed tears, Tali's was also very emotional.

Again, because I cannot emphasize it enough, Tali is ADORABLE.
If you haven't, make sure to speak to Kelly Chambers immediately after recruiting Tali if playing as a Male Shepard. The Yeoman would have something interesting to say regarding that Quarian.
