ME3: Epilogue Tali
Two years later after Shepard had left the council due to all the political bullshit (if he accepted the offer), Shepard wakes up and looks to his right to see Tali laying there beside him her eyes closed and breathing softly, with her mask off and was cuddled up close to Shepard.
"Commander," Edi said contacting Shepard through his omni-tool, "we are approaching the Citadel."
"Thanks Edi," Shepard said as he looked at Tali's face.
"Shepard there something else," Edi said.
"What's that, Edi?" Shepard asked.
"The Quarian Admiralty board wants to talk to you and Tali about the recent news you dropped on them," Edi said.
"Keelah," Tali said drowsily, her eyes still closed, "I knew there was going to be repercussions from telling them that about us, but this is the fifth time they have called."
"Shall we ignore them a bit longer?" Shepard asked.
"No we better see them this time," Tali said as she sat up and put her mask back on.
"I thought your immune systems had become stronger since uniting with the Geth," Shepard said.
"They have," Tali said, "and being with you my immune system has also gotten stronger."
"Do you still need your mask then?" Shepard asked.
"No," Tali said, "but the only person I want to show my face to is you, Shepard."
"Keelah Se'lai," Shepard said, "what was the other thing Edi?"
"Doctor Chakwas wishes to see you and Tali about a private matter." Edi explained.
Down in the communications rooms the four other admirals were their projected as Holograms, "Admirals," Shepard said, "we are almost to the Citadel, and once there we will be looking at the proposed area for our embassy to be placed."
"That's great, Commander Shepard but that is not the reason for this call," Shala'Raan said.
"We figured as much," Tali said, "are you finally alright with our relationship or are you going to try and convince us otherwise?"
"No, Tali," Shala said, "we discussed it and we have come to a verdict. We accept your relationship with Shepard."
"Some of us more than others," Daro'Xen said unimpressed.
"At any rate, Tali," Shala continued, "please go with Shepard and peace be with the both of you. Keelah Se'Lai."
The holograms of the Admiralty board disappeared, "Well that went better than expected," Shepard said.
"It did," Tali said, "to be honest I thought they were going to be furious at the fact that we were together."
"I guess they have more respect for you than you thought," Shepard said.
"Maybe, or maybe its respect for you that made them accept our love," Tali said.
"Well regardless I guess we should go see what Chakwas is wanting," Shepard said.
Tali and Shepard entered the medical bay and Chakwas was there waiting for them, "Shepard, Tali," Chakwas said as they entered, "Tali you know how you haven't been feeling very well lately?"
"Yes," Tali said curiously, "what has been causing it?"
"Well it is very normal for someone who has someone growing inside them," Chakwas said.
"What do you mean by that?" Tali asked.
"Chakwas are you saying what I think you are saying?" Shepard asked, "is Tali…"
"Yes, she is with child," Chakwas said lightly laughing, "your child, Commander. Congratulations."
Tali and Shepard were surprised by this news, "I can't believe it," Tali said as she put her hand on her stomach, "I have Shepard's child inside me."
"Imagine what the faces on the admiralty board will be when we tell them," Shepard said.
"Keelah," Tali said, "first telling them that we are in a relationship then this."
"They are going to hate us after they learn about this," Shepard said.
"How can this be?" Shepard asked, "I thought Quarian and human DNA was not compatible."
"Well that is what is quite fascinating," Chakwas said, "Normally you are correct commander, but I theorize that after three hundred years Quarians may have evolved to be more compatible with other species such as humans. But I'm not a geneticist, Commander, if Mordin was still alive maybe he could come up with a more accurate theory."
"Legion," Tali said suddenly said distracted feeling her stomach.
"Pardon," Shepard asked curiously.
"That's what I want to name the child," Tali said, "in memory of the first Geth that I really got too know, and the Geth that sacrificed himself to make the Geth be something more and united them with the Quarians."
"Tali," Shepard said, "I think that is a wonderful idea." Shepard and Tali then left started to leave the med bay, "Oh and Chakwas, if you could keep this quiet we'd like to tell the crew ourselves."
"My lips are sealed, Commander." Chakwas said as she sat down in her chair.
