I don’t believe in no-win scenarios.
what if one night, after a particularly rough battle, garrus goes to shepard’s cabin and the door is locked
and he remembers seeing references to this old human movie on the extranet, say anything
and so he goes and finds some old discarded gun parts and cues up some music on his ‘tool and sits outside shepard’s door tossing things at it until she comes to investigate (it’s not pebbles at a window but it’ll have to do), and then he holds up his omni-tool and it’s playing something that sounds like expel 10 and she just looks at him blankly
"well, i didn’t have a, um. a … bang-box?"
and shepard, standing there in shorts and a tank-top, so tired she could sleep on her feet, starts laughing. garrus is pretty sure something got lost in translation, but with the smile on her face that he hasn’t seen in days, he thinks that maybe the most important stuff got across just fine.
Let’s start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
Forgive me Father, for I have sinned - often. I lay with many men, I killed some of them. In the world’s eyes I’ve done terrible, unforgivable things…but I once loved a man and he loved me.
