Shepard x Miranda- My Last Breath by Wellsy71 Shepard x Miranda- My Last Breath by Wellsy71
A piece where Shepard finds Miranda, the latter being close to death. This was inspired by the song "My Last Breath" by Evanescence and also Miranda's death scene in ME3.

Hold on to me, love
You know I can't stay long
All I wanted to say was
I love you and I'm not afraid, oh

Can you hear me?
Can you feel me in your arms?

Holding my last breath
Safe inside myself
Are all my thoughts of you
Sweet raptured light, it ends here tonight

Okay, but her death scene if you don't save her from Kai Leng had me sobbing...

I've always thought Shepard would fly off the rails when this happened.

I think you did a good job with this. Where it looks like you've merged images together these are not the centre focus so it doesn't matter. In fact it adds to the whole scene - contributing a warped sense of reality which works well for the moment. I think I can see sheets of rain and that you've made good effort to make it look like Shepard's armour and Miranda's outfit are wet. The only criticism I might have is perhaps the putting in of a few droplets on them, from them (lets have a tear from Shepard!), and maybe in the foreground - maybe falling from the camera (ooo! Idea: this image miniaturised as viewed through a droplet falling in the foreground kinda mirroring Shepard's tear).

The idea for it is really good. I mean the concept, the last breath, oh and I know that song so yeah. Appreciation! :D

Anyway I originally came here to ask if it would be OK for me to add this to the albums of a Facebook page I admin called Mass Effect Miranda Lawson. I'd include reference to you as artist and a link back to your original here in the photo caption so even if shared by other people/pages that would still be viewable and traceable. Thoughts?

Thank you for your feedback, I'm glad that you enjoyed the picture :D

Anyway, I give you permission to add this pic to the Facebook page, it would be good to see it up there. Thanks for asking and sorry for the late response as I don't have access to the internet and it wasn't until I went back to my parent's place that I was able to give a reply. :)

After I saw her death scene on YouTube, I found myself unable to decide whether it was beautiful because she managed to choke out "I love you" or tragic because she died. I nearly shed a manly tear. NEARLY.
For the record I can never bring myself to kill her off.

BTW love the pic but couldn't you leave killing Miranda to the Talimancers? Or Bioware?

Talk about things in common. (Sorry, I know it's weird that I'm replying soon. I'm at work, and dare I say it's slow. And we have free wi-fi. xD.) Fallen is what got me started on the road of Rock and Roll!

Lol, another thing we have in common. It's hard to pick a favourite off that album, if I had to pick three songs they would have to be "My Immortal", "Hello" and "My Last Breath". Those three may not be the heaviest songs (and I'm into metal), but the music and lyrics are just great. :)

RuggyRose357 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well, in the terms of three songs. I'd have to pick My Immortal, Bring me Too Life, and....Uhm...uh...Tourniquet! The piano work in their songs are so pretty. Some are easy, like Hello.(That was a surprise for me.). And some are extremely hard. Like Good Enough.

Wellsy71 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I looked at the sheet music for Hello and it certainly was a surprise by how simple it looked compared to just listening to it, even then it didn't sound too complex. But then I looked at My Immortal and it was another step up again.

Yeah I know, but at the time I just went playing through Horizon and I made two saves (and I made all the requirements so that Miranda could live). The first of course is where she lives, but then I loaded the other save and didn't use the charm/intimidate option and clicked the option on the right and she gets shot dead by her father and dies within seconds of falling to the ground. I must admit though, I felt a little emotional after that. :cries:

I got it far worse, she doesn't get shot,but dies slowly of the wounds she took from Kai Leng.

And just before she goes, she manages to choke out "I love you." It hurts all the more because that's the only time she ever says it directly.

Because it's really a great scene. Shepard tries to explain that things have changed in six months and that they can't go back to being who they were, that they need to focus on the war. You can literally see a swirling of emotions on Miranda's face from hope to realization and finally sadness. Some of the best of Bioware's animation.
Then, she turns her back to him and starts to play it cool but we can see that she is crying and I think that this showcases two very important and real facets of Miranda's personality.
The being sad but also not wanting anyone to see her tears.

I've watched it on YouTube, it is a fitting end for her. But since she was a war asset, it was worth keeping her alive. At least I've made another save before the meeting at the apartment, so next time I won't give her the resources and see what happens.
