Very radiant and poignant pic.  These two are incredible together.  Miranda elated that Shepard survived and is in her arms.  Shepard elated to come back to Miranda, yet saddened by the death of his mentor and friend, Admiral Anderson.  Even more meaningful that the backdrop is London in the aftermath.  From the light shining down on them, I picture the following sayings:

Anderson: "You did good, son.  I'm proud of you."

Thane:  "You're the first friend I've had in years.  Although our time was brief, you have helped me so much.  Thank you for helping me with Kolyat.  Rest easy, Shepard."

Mordin:  "Glad you were the one that was given the option.  Someone else might have gotten it wrong.  Give my regards to Wrex and Eve.  Farewell, Shepard."

Legion:  "Shepard-Commander.  Albeit brief, you have given the geth the experience of being truly alive and independent; what it is like to have a soul.  We do not regret following you, even if it led to our extinction.  Keelah se'lai, Shepard-Commander, and thank you."

Wow, never thought I'd hear someone say that! Yes, it was something that was going through my mind when I was making this, that Shepard was thinking about the people he had lost during the war, while reuniting and keeping his promise to Miranda to find her. This is could just almost be considered as an alternate ending to ME3 in which Shepard finds their love interest in the aftermath of the war (for me, my Shepard's LI was Miranda).

Anyway, thanks for saying that. It's like you've read my mind as it was something I was thinking when making the picture. :)

This hits me right in the feels. OTP: You promise me. I really love the lighting too! Like, the war's over, the reapers are gone and all can start to rebuild Earth, and Shepard and Miranda have each other.

Anyway, I was wondering if you would be all right if I could post this to a page I admin on Facebook called 'Mass Effect Miranda Lawson' [link]

We do not post without asking the artist, and we credit everything to the original posting, be it on Deviant art or tumblr. It's an appreciation page done properly with standards. So if you could consider sharing this lovely work with us, that would be highly appreciated. It's really well done!

Sure thing, you can certainly use it. Thanks for asking and I look forward to seeing it up on your page :)

Awesome, thank you! I'm the 2nd Admin so I'm trying to scour deviant art for what Admin 1 hasn't already asked for! It's funny too because I have an RP account on tumblr for Miranda, and the Shepard I mainly write with has Iridescent as the song on his blog page, so it's sorta their song. Probably why I love this piece. :P

Haha such a cool idea to use that picture from Hellgate London!!!! I never thought about it but it really fits the theme of ME3!!!
Great job!

We all know Shepard made it out of the Citadel and Miranda's there for him!

Incredible work. Mind if I use it as the cover of one of my stories?
