Grounded by Forever-in-a-Day Grounded by Forever-in-a-Day
Because nobody died on Virmire.

After Udina's stunt, with the Normandy grounded Shepard is frustrated and tired, and Kaidan and Ash are trying to reassure him.

Might redo this one later, my sense of space has never been particularly good and I feel like it's getting worse. Ugh.

Still wish I had an actual ME1 Shepard model.

It would be interesting, if they ever release a full ME: Trilogy (you know, with ME1 and 2 using the ME3 engine and all the DLC as part of the default package), it would be nice for you to have the option to save both squad members of Virmire if you follow one really obscure decision chain.

Great concept. Nice execution.

This is a great photo of what I wish could really happen.

Because in all honesty, I'm quite sure someone else, anyone else, could have held that bomb.

Like the soldiers that helped whoever bring out the bomb. Or Garrus/Liara. Because I really didn't use them in ME1. Would have killed me for the other games, but I would have both Ash and Kaidan dammit. With a possible threesome if I could get 1000% renegade.

I knoooow! I'd give up anyone else if I could just keep them both! Okay, it would have been harder with Garrus, but I think I still would. But I guess it wouldn't make sense to leave there someone who is not a soldier. I mean, this is a military operation, and except for Kaidan and Ash all our squadmates are just civilians. Badass and fearsome, but still civilians. Guests who aren't even expected to stay for long. And assigning them to a suicide mission... would be really weird. Sadly.

Okay, but the soldiers that brought the bomb out. They could have stayed. Because they didn't go out and fight with me at any other point in time. In fact, I didn't even know they were on the ship.

Anyway, now that that's out of the way, great piece. The look everyone has here is "what now?" Body language conveys a lot and I think you got these poses just right. Great work! :)

I really never got the whole problem with Vermire. It's not that I think that there can be no death in a story, it's that the death here made little sense. When I played through, it just seemed so arbitrary and senseless.

In my head cannon, both survived Vermire. 1. Because in my head, I imagine that no one suddenly clutches the idiot ball. and 2. Becuase I think both Ash and Kaiden are interesting characters and I can imagine interesting stories involving both.
