That post by @susurrusilous is so great because now I’m picturing all sorts of stories about what happened on Earth during the attack:
-A kid trying to pilot an abandoned shuttle to go from London to New York to find his older sister. He has no idea if she’s alive or not.
-Two teenagers from completely different backgrounds meeting each other a month after the attack. Both lost their parents. They become each other’s family, and teach each other some needed skills to survive.
-An old man who refused to take a shuttle to leave Earth because his bedridden wife can’t leave with him. They die in each other’s arms (I know, this is some serious Titanic scenario here, but it could have happened).
-A woman saving another woman from Banshees, they run together and won’t leave each other’s side afterwards, even when the Reaper War is over.
-Two best friends were on a vacation together when the Reapers attacked. They end up fighting Brutes on an island in the middle of nowhere. They do it all with a grin and a badass attitude. When the Reaper War is over, they start making jokes about what happened. “Remember that time where-” “YES”
