Added DiffLines:

* DisappearedDad: Shepard's biological father is never identified; Hannah raises her as a single mom. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, Hannah marries Sparatus, who hands off the bride at Shepard's wedding to Garrus Vakarian.]]


* CrackPairing: [[invoked]] An extremely odd choice for the main pairing considering that in the games Captain/Rear Admiral Shepard and Councilor Sparatus were never even on the same planet at the same time. Not to mention that Hannah is a character who has maybe twenty or so lines of dialogue in the entire trilogy and ''only'' shows up if you have one particular background and ''never'' seen, while Sparatus is one of the Council and thus ''extremely'' plot important no matter which background you take. Nevertheless, it works.

Added DiffLines:

* AirQuotes: A couple chapters consist of letters back and forth between Hannah Shepard, Councilor Sparatus, and eventually [[PlayerCharacter Commander Shepard]]. In one message to her mother, Commander Shepard complains indignantly about Sparatus using air-quotes on her in the canon incident that went {{memetic|Mutation}}, a gesture that Sparatus apparently picked up from Hannah (and it drove Shepard ''nuts'' when Hannah did it to her).

* AscendedMeme: Shepard's reaction in an e-mail to Hannah to Sparatus' air-quoting is absolutely hilarious.


Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Sparatus' turian air-quotes from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' are described to Hannah after the fact by Shepard. Turns out Sparatus picked up the gesture from Hannah, who used to do that to Shepard and it drove her ''nuts''.


* InterspeciesRomance: Two of them, between Hannah and Sparatus and [[spoiler:Shepard and Garrus]].

* CuttingOffTheBranches: Commander Shepard is female, has the Spacer background, saved the ''Destiny Ascension'' at ''VideoGame/MassEffect1's'' climax, [[spoiler:romanced Garrus, and chose the Destroy ending]].
** Although given that her ''not'' saving the ''Destiny Ascension'' would mean that the story would come to a swift end, that's sort of obvious.
