Voice Actor Raphael Sbarge reads Kaidan Alenko’s email to Fem!Shep in Mass Effect 2, “After Horizon”
I’m sorry for what I said back on Horizon. I spent two years pulling myself back together after you went down with the Normandy. It took me a long time to get over my guilt for surviving and move on. I’d finally let my friends talk me into going out for drinks with a doctor on the Citadel. Nothing serious, but trying to let myself have a life again, you know?
Then I saw you, and everything pulled hard to port. You were standing in front of me, but you were with Cerberus. I guess I really don’t know who either of us is anymore. Do you even remember that night before Ilos? That night meant everything to me… maybe it meant as much to you. But a lot has changed in the last two years and I can’t just put that aside.
But please be careful. I’ve watched too many people close to me die — on Eden Prime, on Virmire, on Horizon, on the Normandy. I couldn’t bear it if I lost you again. If you’re still the woman I remember I know you’ll find a way to stop these Collector attacks. But Cerberus is too dangerous to be trusted. Watch yourself.
When things settle down a little… maybe… I don’t know. Just take care.
SONOFABITCH THIS IS REALLY WELL ACTED.
I FORGIVE YOU FOR EVERYTHING KAIDAN. I’LL SEE YOU IN ME3.
AGHHHHH MY FEELS. HE HIT ME RIGHT IN THE FEEEEEEELS. :’$
If you can’t post it, I win.
