Soooooo..we have a) The Reapers as kinda godlike, creepy machines, harvesting and destroying everything on their path; their motives being mostly unknown or just based on hypothetical assumptions. Terrifying and cruel "creatures" that let you shiver in fear. b) The Reapers as galactic janitors. I am pretty sure, Bioware did exactly know what to choose for the "closure". Oh and btw, I also found THE answer, whether the Godchild is an AI or a VI.... It's an anagram. The AI stands for.... *drum roooooooooll* Artistic Integrity! *badummtss* (because that's what it IS!) Another mystery solved. Yes, I'm a fucking genious, thank you. And it's damn late I suppose. Good night.
