A massive pulse of energy erupted from the Citadel. The waveform crashed against the approaching Reapers. Great electric storms arced across the surface of each machine.  Then they drifted along their vectors. On board SSV Kilimanjaro, Admiral Hackett ordered a status report.


His sensor officer replied, "Minimal heat signatures from the enemy. Kinetic barriers down."

"All ships, this is Admiral Hackett, target the nearest Reaper and hit it with everything we got!" said Hackett over the fleet comm.

The combined firepower of hundreds of ships tore apart the nearest target. Then it shifted to a second and then a third as more survivors joined the fray. The Reapers stirred, but without their barriers they were easy prey for the allied fleet. One made a run at the Destiny Ascension, only to be ripped to shreds by a massive broadside from Kwunu's Thanix Magnetic-Hydrodynamic cannons.

The surviving Reapers  jumped toward the Charon relay.

But the relay laid cold.

The fleet followed and now had perfect alignment to fire at the Reapers vulnerable underbellies.  The last of the invaders fell to the three well aimed shots from the Destiny Ascension and her sisters ships, Pride of the Matriarchy and Dawn of the Republics.  As the Reaper's mass effect core exploded the Ascension's commander yelled over the comm, "That's for Thessia you cybernetic bastards"

The Battle of Earth was over.

The battle to retake the galaxy had just begun.
This is Part 2 of my ME:3 ending fic (Part 1 here [link]) dealing with the Citadel/Catalyst activation and its effects on the Battle for Earth. As always, characters, locations and other materials belong to BioWare/EA and the relevant copy holders.

that's for MY BELOVED'S Thessia, you fucking soulless murdering hell-spawn excrement bastards!

["My" Zhenia speaking to Liara in the Tyann'asyárriyhha language, learned for her sake:]

"Every time I kill it is in your name.

Every time I watch you fight, I want to make love.

Every breath I take it is for you, every time I see you I want to write you another love-poem [which in fact I have].

Every breath of your voice I cry at its beauty.

When I saw that bomb I severed their limbs and I cut them into pieces while they were still alive, weeping and bellowing your name [crying so hard I could not see the screen] and the pieces of Vasir, I bit a vein from her and spat her blood and in the sight of the one who sent her there, threw down organs that I had taken from her.

I will find the secret of another Way, if there be no relays. The Reapers teleportation without relays ... I will find it even if I must cut it from the entrails of our enemies. From my Earth, I WILL FIND YOU AND I WILL COME BACK TO YOU OR I DO NOT DESERVE TO LIVE. I WILL. Little blue children. To death and past it. The refugees crying for aid, no trade, no food, no life, no hope. I will help you help them.

I ordered you to the escape pod. You are not a soldier, but a civilian, you were never Sworn as we. But you showed ritual respect to me, though not required by custom. You did not say yes, nor did you say do I have to, nor did you say as you wish. You said aye aye. That will echo in me until my last moment."

I wept. [I indeed did.]

Nice. Well done. Just played the demo with FemShep, I might make a whole ME1-2 run with her this time around. Gotta keep the machismo at bay, no? XD

Thanks for posting this.

Yeah, I know, but I think it fits, considering the gab fest in the first part and that this is the end of a very long battle which most people already saw. Time to see if Shepard survived, eh?

XD
