A Mass Effect/Pacific Rim AU in which Jane and John Shepard pilot the SSV Normandy Jaeger. Their drift compatibility scores are unlike anything that has ever been recorded and although the two were not bred to be soldiers fighting in a war they’re the best in the business. But it’s after a fatal encounter with a level 4 Reaper that kills John in the process that leaves Jane nearly broken after having her own brother ripped from her mind.
"They called him the Winter Soldier.Supposed to be the KGB’s secret weapon. A guy who could pass for american and slip behind enemy lines or cross borders without raisin’ an eyebrow. Deadly with a knife or a rifle… even deadlier hand-to-hand. And since he was a ghost, half the time they weren’t even sure if it was an accident or a murder. Story went that they kept him on ice and only woke him up for the big gigs.”

For me this was that one moment of relief in the story. Ellie is clearly suffering from some form of post-traumatic stress after her near-death encounter with David. Joel is trying (and failing) to re-connect with her. It’s always go go go go, all the happiness has been sucked out of the world. At previous times Ellie would try and bring that good back and Joel simply dismisses or brushes it off with a “stay focused.” Everyone you meet is on edge, pissed off, tired, or out to kill you. So in this one moment. This one scene. You could just take a breath and appreciate the good that IS out there. And it comes at such an emotional peak. This is my favorite moment in the game easily. And what a game it is.
imagine a pacific rim video game with really great character customisation and you start in jaeger training or something and instead of romance options there’s drift compatibility and the person you get as a partner depends on which dialogue choices you pick throughout all of your training and instead of classes there’s different types of jaeger and THEN YOU GO KICK SOME KAIJU ASS
He was Russia’s ultimate weapon. But that’s all he was. A weapon.
