I thought I was choosing to destroy them. The conversation wheel seemed kind of vague there at the end, and I thought I was rejecting the control/integration choices, not rejecting doing anything. And it just went, "Okay then". CREDITS. So I guess I messed up, because that wasn't what I meant to do. I was looking for the wheel to be more concrete about [Destroy Reapers] or [Control Reapers] or give me some indication of what I was actually choosing, because I was surprised that I didn't destroy them. I totally thought I was following the conversation tree the right way for that. Oops.

If you refuse, you just die. There was no walking toward anything. I restarted the mission and played through all the endings to see what happened, so I finally saw the walkways lower (I also accidentally chose synthesis, and then the next time when I realized I'd walked toward the control panel and tried to turn around, the crucible blew up because I took too long--mark these choices more clearly, stupid game!), but if you say "I reject your choices" that doesn't happen, because apparently that means "After uniting the galaxy, curing the genophage, making peace between the quarians and geth, and fighting my way up here, I now shall do nothing at all and let everyone die". I thought it meant "So now let me push a big old 'destroy' button".

I can see the ending being illogical and that's what drove everyone mad, but yeah, for me it was that the options were not clearly marked and it took me three tries to get the ending I actually meant to get. I guess I'm just dumb.
