Sorry for the delay, but it seems that The Muse is finally back :)
I will be quick with the comments on this page -it's late here!-: Garrus dialogue makes a direct reference to his thoughts from page 9 [link] , which now I find kind of funny his last dialogue from ME3 -no spoilers!-
Regarding the color, ~Arwing suggested it and ~UruiShepard and ~CeriseMoon demanded it, so here you have it ^^
If you want to know what happens after this page, I have news for you, you can see it here:[link] -start with the blue panels-. Next page will follow this one [link] -again, blue panel-. Please, bear in mind that these pages were done before ME3 was released and we were wondering what the head-bump meant ;)
Thanks a lot for your patience, next page, next week! (I hope).

Thanks to :iconarwing: for his beta-read!

I’ve been reading many ME1 and ME2 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 never liked pairing, but turf my ass Illusive Man, I can not break away from this.

That's a big praise coming from someone who never liked Sharrus ;) 
Thank you!
Walter-D Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2014
No-no, I basically never liked pairing, but I had an epiphany!
ErsbethShadowsong Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Oh! I see... Well, it still is a valuable praise :)

It's so nice to see colour. :) 

I'm not complaining about the black and white pages. If anything, they help you appreciate the colour bits more. :)

I wanted to do something different for this part, and I though that the addition of colour would break a little the path and also a break of their mood.

I think you achieved that. :)

aww yeah facehugger time. I like how Norse Gods are a big turn on for her. Also, I am very surprised at how large Ayren's breasts seem, especially in that last panel. Like... they seem too big to fit into the armor she wears? But then again who knows how thick that armor really is, or maybe it is just a trick of the clothes/position. And Garrus's feet made me laugh. They make me think that he could be a beast from Where the Wild Things Are by Sendak. Except that because it is Ayren's dream it is a steamy, sexy one.

:nod: A little fluffy and nonsense moments... More than the old Norse Myths, what breaks her self imposed barriers is that Garrus didn't forget her or who she was, in comparison with Kaidan. My main concern of this part is how "quick" it may seem for Shepard to forget Kaidan and throw herself to the arms of her turian friend...
Does them seem too big? Mmm... Maybe they are, but in my experience, certain kind of outfits or clothes have the property of altering the shape and size of breasts... ;)
I'd love that Bioware had given us a clear concept for naked turians which would have included their feet ;) But alas! no chance of that... unless they decide to do it for their next ME game. 
Now, out of curiosity, why do you think this is Ayren's dream?
