This story is a sequel to Why No One Messes With Luna

Shepard has done the impossible. Old foes have set aside their differences, new friends have come into the fold, and the galaxy is more united than ever before. But the Reapers care not for the new alliances they face; they will fall, as countless civilizations before them fell. It is inevitable.

There is still hope. The Crucible, source of unimaginable power, has been constructed by the allies. With this new source of hope in tow, the allied fleets break through the Earth blockade and attempt to use this newfound weapon in a last, desperate attempt to defeat the Reapers and save the galaxy as we know it. Fleets of all races, soldiers of every kind, are united in this final stand.

Equestria, too, has sent what they can to aid in this final battle. Or rather, who, they can.

The Reapers have no idea what they have unleashed.

A fitting end to the trilogy. I sure as hell have enjoyed the ride.

Lovely stuff. I especially like Discord's five-word summary of the story: "I happened to the Crucible."

negative wedgied itself out of existence

I will find a way to use that in polite conversation.

If the type of Chaos being released here was from 40k, they'd all be screwed

MY FAMILY IS SLEEPING RIGHT NOW! I HAVE TO HOLD THE LAUGHTER IN, DESPITE THE FACT THAT IT HURTS SO BAD TO DO SO!:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::pinkiecrazy::trixieshiftleft::pinkiecrazy::rainbowlaugh::pinkiecrazy::rainbowlaugh::pinkiecrazy::rainbowlaugh::applejackconfused::flutterrage::raritydespair::pinkiecrazy::pinkiegasp::scootangel:

And to think, things couldve gone so much worse, or different, or even cheese.

Theres a trick that Chaos can do, instead of actually collapsing and fading away, is tat it forms into Chaos Regions, Systems, throughout the galaxy, because it was created to deal with Reapers, but it didnt, it only dealt with Reapers in the Galaxy, not those elsewhere such as home galaxy. Chaos Systems just sit there and any Reaper turns up, gets Bokd. :pinkiecrazy:

*holding laughter in hurts do bad*:rainbowkiss::pinkiecrazy:

Incomplete... :)

Huh, and here I thought it would be something more like Why No One Messes With The Elements

My goodness, you are right! Marked for active tracking.


Whoops.... sorry guys, that's a fail on my part. This story is complete. I know :fluttercry:

Question: I seem to recall you tried to keep Shepherd gender neutral, but you appear to have slipped in a her. "It took a moment for her to focus enough on the words". Is this intended?

Anyway, fun story. Glad to see the trilogy finished (although I would have loved to see what Twilight would have managed)


:trixieshiftleft::trixieshiftright: scribbles

Good catch there, nope, did not intend to have Shepard have a gender. Missed that one in my proofreading, should be fixed now though.

Ok I never played the games but I gotta say I enjoyed the trilogy here.


Well MY Shepherd is male. Your little slip up has ruined all of my immersion in everything and I'll never be able to feel joy again! :flutterrage:

I jest.

So, excited for Andromeda?

Chaos always reigned my friend, we just didn't know.

Why No One Messes With Cadence
Cadence attempts to get Shepard and Luna to hook up, while scaring away various members of the Commander's crew.

Why No One Messes With Twilight
Someone/s attempts to remove Twilight from the Citadel's archives.

poor ensign golden XD...

Okay, so is Celestia going to stay male and romance Twilight? :trollestia: :twilightoops:

This is good ending. When I first got to the ending of ME3 I wanted to shoot Catalyst (not an option at the time) because I thought his options were bull and only trust him as far as I can throw him (being a hologram, that's not at all). I trust Discord more, and that's saying something. :derpytongue2:

10/10, better than the canon endings. :rainbowlaugh:

One Reaper accidentally divided by zero and negative wedgied itself out of existence

:rainbowlaugh: That's a good sentence right there!

Not to sound stupid, but what were the three different scenarios in the Author's Note representing? This is coming from someone who never played the games...


...yep. This works for me.

Grunt vs RainbowDash go!

8012294 Those are based on the military strength you can acquire from various factions throughout the game. The decisions you make affect how much those groups like you and how many resources they put towards the war effort.


Throughout ME3 you get something called 'War Assets' for doing various things; for example, saving a special forces team is worth 100 points, or having a fleet pledge to your cause is worth 400 points. At the end, during the finale, the amount of war assets you have is totaled, and that is the score I'm referencing. The more assets you have, the better the chances of success, the better the ending you get.

The most obvious effects were the immediate ones dictated by the initial wave of chaos. A Reaper dreadnought turned into a full-sized, 2 kilometer long plushie of itself.

Ignore the scale marks.

One Destroyer in the upper atmosphere was turned into a blue whale, whereupon it began a rather terminal fall towards the ground.

"Oh no, not again. "

That was Beautiful and quite hilarious. GREAT JOB!:pinkiehappy:

“I must admit, I am looking forward to flying,” Luna replied, stretching out a leather wing and eyeing it curiously.

Huhh? I don't get it. Flying is nothing new for Luna.
If she had said "flying with these." it might make better sense.


No, that was the petunias. The whale is hoping to make friends with the ground any minute now.

It only lasted for a few moments, but I managed to capture it so I could paste it here for the symbolism:

8012525 I'm out of the loop, what is the symbolism of that screenshot?


666 views. Mark of The Beast.

8012608 Got it, I didn't notice that because the type was so small.

Pure evil, I say... :(
So, waiting for sequels. :)

Like I have sad in blog post, it really fits other story, aand it is a "perfect" 5th ending, one that I would choose. :)

This was fucking great. Oh man, its been a long time since I've laughed that hard. Holy...

Problem is the chaos in 40k is in reality only another form of order. The one who wrote the story for it evidently didn't know what chaos is.

Why dodn't they use elements to restore harmony in Equestria? From the show we know they can have effect on whole planet.

8012323 soooooo, you got the best possible scenario, 3100?

I am still trying to understand what exactly happened that Bioware fucked up the endings.
I loved ME 3 till the end until starchild appeared and everything went down.

Why didn't they create a true Paragon ending? Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy:raritydespair:
The story goes together with This into my better mass effect ending folder xD
