i've made myself sad

Imagine a post-ME3 Shepard visiting Tuchunka to see how Wrex, Grunt and Eve are rebuilding the Krogan world.

Imagine Shepard landing on Tuchunka with Liara at her side, and they step out of the shuttle to see cities rising the distance, and statues being pieced back together.

Imagine Shepard getting a playful punch in the arm from Wrex and Grunt, who both say that they would have gone for a headbutt if she wasn’t still healing.

Imagine Eve walking up with a dozen little Krogan children running around her, each one marveling at Shepard and Liara, some of the first non-Krogans they’ve seen. Imagine them all gathering around Liara as she tells them stories about the worlds she’s seen and the people she’s met.

Imagine one little Krogan remaining behind, looking up to Shepard with big, wondrous eyes. Shepard kneels in front of them and asks “Hey, what’s your name?”

The little Krogan meets her gaze, a hopeful smile crossing his face.

“I’m Mordin.”
