I know I'm not alone, not satisfied with Thane's appearance in Mass Effect 3 - Namely and mainly: One conversation, even while in romance! I even have an impression, that the non-romance dialogues were BETTER than romance ones! That's just unfair..
I don't want to cry about his death. (Well I did cry - don't tell me you didn't cry during ME3 once! And I don't mean something like angry tears seeing the ending. I'm not gonna talk about endings, because everyone talks about endings! I want to talk about Thane.) BioWare would sell him pretty cheap if they just found cure, let Thane live happily ever after and just let it be. I would be upset as I am now. But, there was time when I planned perfect life together, including children and stuff, though I always knew it won't happen. Then I got an idea, of a perfect ending to them. Something that is possible to have in the game and I would like to have it there.
It wasn't in the game, though it doesn't mean I cannot share it with you guys and demand your opinion. What do you think about my Thane/Shep ending?
Thane didn't want to be in the hospital any longer, he traveled to the Gryssom Academy. After the Reaper invasion, it's being reconstructed. He wanted to help the children there and maybe even die there under the work effort. There were rumours that Shepard is dead and only thing keeping him alive was his son, that found a girlfriend and didn't have time for father anymore... Shepard wasn't dead of course, Alliance found her very badly injured body and 'repaired' it.
She wanted to see Thane, she needed to see him. Doctors wasn't up for the thought of her going away from the hospital, but she was uncompromising. She found that Thane was at Gryssom's and headed there. In the academy, she went directly to the principal, Kahlee Sanders, to find him. While being there, something happened. Alert. Explosives that Cerberus left there the last time. Until they figured out what's happening, supporting pillars of the academy blew up and whole place was about to fall apart.
Priority was to save the children. Ones, that were farther from the center of building, were safe. But there was still one group of
volunteers right in the heart of builing. Shepard ran right there, didn't care about parts of ceiling falling next to her, just wanted to
reach the class until it's too late. When she arrived there, children were already running out of the door. She stopped one and asked if
anyone is still inside. There were still few students and 'the man that was helping them'.
Shepard told the children where to go and what to do and entered the room. There was still one child, hidden right next to
the statue of Mr. Gryssom, founder of the academy, and there was Thane, right in front of the door. He was trying to make some kind of false ceiling above to make a safe path for the child. But something always fell through, his biotics weren't strong enough. Shepard didn't waste a second. Stood next to Thane and strengthened his biotics with hers. Child was still too afraid to move, but there was not much time. She told Thane to go there, to save the child, that she will hold the barrier as long as possible. Thane ran for the boy, took his hand and wanted to go back, but then he saw high statue near them falling. He ordered the boy to run and so he did. Thane was holding the statue, and knew he won't last long. He looked at Shepard with apologize and wanted to say his last goodbye. But Shepard knew that she wouldn't stand seeing him die. Not ever! She ran with her arms above her head right between Thane and the statue, right when it started falling directly to the floor. She pushed Thane away but for that large statue it was just too late to stop, and it fell on her. It hit her head and wounded her neck badly.
Thane ran to her, with biotics stronger then before cleared Shepard from pieces of broken statue and fell on his knees. With her in his arms he saw Shepard opening her eyes again, looking at him with amused smile on her face, but also blood all over it. In her
blond hair, over her lips and new scars covering her cheeks from all the things that fell on her at once. He brushed the blood away and
kissed her. "Why did you do that?!" She smirked. "I wanted to have better score than y-- *cough*" He kissed her again eagerly. "You
foolish, foolish.." tears started rolling down his face. "I think you fell in love with that foolish woman..." she said, filling her lungs
very painfully. He cried knowing that he cannot help her. "But it shoul've been me. I should have died. Why did you--" She stopped him
from talking. "I love you Thane... Meet you across the sea." she bearly whispered and then let her body weakened into his arms.
Thane, crying, unable to do anything that would bring her back, sat there, holding her a waiting for another statue that would fall at him too. Then he heared another little crying being, somewhere near. All this place was about to fall apart and he couldn't let another soul die in there. Little girl was hidden in the corner, she had blond hair, luminously turquoise eyes and circle face. She reminded him Shepard incredibly. He needed to save her, to get her out of there and give her the chance to grow up and be protecting angel to someone, as Shepard was to him. He took the girl and lifted her in his hands, running with her to the door. Thane let her down and told her to run. Until she disappeared in the distance, he was keeping debris from her, making sure she was safe. After that, he let his body knee once again next to the body of his commander and lover, and kissed her closed eyes. "We shall meet again.." he said, right before whole place fell and took away his life sending it somewhere to the ocean...
