With all the horrible, tragic choices that were made, I honestly couldn't see how my counterpart could've pulled off a win. Any victory he managed to achieve would undoubtedly have been a Pyrrhic one. In the end, he didn't even get that: apparently he died in the Temple of Athame when Kai Leng ambushed his squad and snatched the Prothean VI from his grasp. After that... everything went downhill. The Alliance lost colony after colony, planet after planet, until they ultimately retreated to some last-ditch refuge—and even that was discovered by the Reapers shortly after my dad arrived. If he hadn't found a way to get one last run out of the time machine, the human race would've been wiped out.
