Well, since we spoke about ME 3’s Endings…I have even more to offer about the Indoctrination Theory. PREPARE FOR FACTS!
Okay, let us start. First off, you literally lose consciousness after you get hit from the beam of the Harbinger.
Then we wake up, hearing that all units were decimated. They also say you need to regroup. Okay, somehow they didn’t notice Shep being alive, sure…Upon entering you hear from Anderson who apparently got here before you?
Uh…I’m sorry? Am I missing something? Did Anderson just walk in there and literally ignore your body and existence? Okay, okay, lets ignore that too and say “Anderon’s perception was damaged.” Not only that, apparently he’s literally somewhere else. Now this is complete mind-blowing. How the hell, and I repeat, how the hell did THE ILLUSIVE MAN get here? Like, can someone explain it to me? Okay lets skip a bit. Illusive Man’s dead and Anderson just died. ADMIRAL HACKETT SOMEHOW SENSED YOUR THOUGHTS FROM SUCH A DISTANCE THAT HE ALREADY KNOWS YOU’RE ALIVE, AND THAT YOU’VE MADE IT. Erm, maybe coincidence? Then we see Shep collapse and then ascend to the biggest plot twister…THE STARCHILD.
His explanation of his solution is so stupid I just laughed. I mentioned this previously, but why the hell does he say that the destroy option kills you if you actually get to live by taking a breath? Another coincidence? Or something Starchild didn’t predict? Why is it that its only the destroy option in which you live? Starchild doesn’t want you to pick this option. So at this point the Reapers are simulating pain to make it feel real and your mind is trying to battle for free will. If you pick the destroy option, Shepard starts walking like a BAWS. Okay, seriously,
if you pick that, he/she starts walking normally and stops to struggle. How can this be explained? Shepard just used extra energy she/he had stored to walk like a boss in the what looked like his/her final moments? Shepard also used more bullets than a clip can hold(this maybe bad writing but I don’t know, if its true, then it means that this isn’t the reality). He/she starts walking straight because his/her mind has gained free will. And where does Shep wake up? Nope, not at the citadel. Shepard wakes up right where the beam hit him/her. So, to summarize this: Shepard was knocked unconscious after the blast and the Reapers tried to make him choose Synthesis or Control to finalize the indoctrination. However, your subconscious tells you that there’s another path with the destroy option which isn’t liked by Starchild(he literally portraits all of the bad things if you choose this). If you choose the destroy option, you basically wake up, free of the Reaper’s grasp, at the location where you were knocked unconscious. If you pick the other two options…well, the Reapers probably keep you unconscious and create this hallucination of you getting a good ending. (While the fleet is decimated by the Reapers). Okay,
this is going to be funny if someone actually reads it and replies.
Edit: In the memory of the Marauder who shot us in the shoulder to save us from the ending.
