Mass Effect - Marriage by Berserker79 Mass Effect - Marriage by Berserker79
With the Reapers destroyed and peace all around the galaxy Shepard and Ashley finally had the chance to take some time to visit Ashley's home on Amaterasu and get married! Ideally, this follows Shepard's marriage proposal depicted here [link]. :)

BTW, I know the lights in this pic suck, but I was bored by too many attempts at improving them and the sheer amount of time spent on this pic, so I'm afraid you'll have to live with that... ;)

It feels almost forever since I've been working on this picture, so much that at least two other really nice marriage pics of Shepard are already out there. You can check them out here:

My creator was wondering do you have a female Shepard-Commander ans Ashley version?
Berserker79 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2014
I'm afraid there's no FemShepley version of this one, but I think someone else worked on a similar concept featuring FemShep and Ash... :)

As a Male Shepard/Ashley romancer I am a big fan of your Mass Effect work. Your proposal piece even served as an inspiration for a fanfiction I wrote a year ago that served as my continuation of the third game (I too am a believer that the ending should have featured Shepard living happily ever after with his LI, in my case Ashley). I was wondering if I could have your permission to use this particular piece as the cover image for the story I'm currently writing on I think this would be perfect because I have a wedding scene that serve as the halfway point of the story. What do you think? If you will allow it, how would like to be credited in the author's note at the beginning of the story. Thanks for your time.

Always good to hear there's more people who would have enjoyed a happy ending for Shepard and his/her LI. And while I have nothing against all other potential LIs, of course I'm happier when that happy ending is for Shepard/Ashley! :)

If you wish to use my image as the cover for your fanfic I'm ok with that: actually, I'm quite honored you feel like using it in your work (especially now that I've taken a look at my pic after a long time... I can see lots of details that I could have done better at the time... :roll:). The only thing I ask is that you please credit me for the picture (just like you already suggested). And if you could also have a link back to the pic here on dA, that would be extra nice (but not mandatory)! :D

And if you feel like sending me a link for your earlier fanfic (as well as the new one), I'd be happy to read something about our fav couple in the ME universe! ;)

Thank you very much! I'll have the picture up later today and I will mention you and help guide people back to this page in the author's note at the beginning of the story. I say guide because for some reason won't let me type links. Below is the link to my account that has the stories. The earlier fic is titled "Mass Effect 'Extended' Extended Cut" and the one I'm currently working on is simply titled "After the War". I hope you enjoy them and thanks again for the use of your artwork.…

Please if you still have the original dress can you send me?
Berserker79 Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2014
I'm sorry, but apparently I no longer have that model... :confused: But there's a Liara meshmod having a very similar dress here [link].

Very nice, though I don't care for the kind of dress that reminds of the bellbottom pants.
