Mass Effect: Punch Out
Somwhere in space, Normandy, evening, cargo hold:
"So? Are you ready yet, Sih Shepard?" Thane closed his double lidded eyes, taking a deep breath and habitually whispering some prayers to Amon Kira.
Though the upcoming event could hardly be classified as 'hunt' but as known old habits die hard Without opening his eyes drell slowly stood forward, raising his scaly hands like following some exotic dance, his fingers moved so slowly and carefully, like he was holding and caressing the fragile waist of his dance partner: another silent step followed by another slow elegant winding. Even the air around him didn`t move not a wave, not a sound, nothing Thane was a stillness and silence in carnet at this moment, just as the death itself.
When his last exercise was finally over the drell opened his eye, feeling the lightness in his chest and pleasant flow of energy pulsing in his veins this respiratory gymnastics he learned a few months ago was something truly am

"So We ended up holding the tie-breaker in her quarters. I had reach, but she had flexibility " The always confident turian with horrible scars on the right 'cheek' looked down, hiding his small eagle eyes.
If Jane wouldn`t know better she`d think he was confused. She couldn`t wipe the sly grin off her face, watching the fearless Garrus being caught in the claws of his own baize. Though they did sometimes have most opened and frank talks Jane Shepard was still a woman, and there was some things he shouldn`t have boasted before her, and as it often happens to men, he realized it a bit late. So he tried to save the talk and softly end the subject
"So There are lots of ways to get off stress, I suppose!"
Jane`s sly grin widened and occupied almost half of her face, making Vakarian feel like he was sitting on the frying pan.
'Damn it, woman, stop glancing!' this thought pulsed in his head, like a steam vent.
"So?" She moved a bit forward, leaning the elbows on

"So This is not how we planned this mission, but that is where we at!" Jane Shepard slammed her heavily armored fists at the already cracked desk, making thick glass crunch even more. She was clearly irritated and pissed, more than usual: her implants glittered with red lights every time she took another tensed breath. From the very beginning this whole deal had been one great disaster, and now this...
Things clearly gone crazy with this mission: almost everyone on board, who was not abducted by the Collectors before, were injured during the fight or "impact" as EDI called this crush landing Only Thane Mordin and Grunt for somehow miraculously survived these ten minutes of hell unharmed: Grunt specifically had the massive steel barrel fallen on him, but young Krogan would simply throw the blasted thing off like annoying horse fly krogan regenerative capabilities served him well.

It was raining.
She always asked him to go outside when it was raining. Before, he couldn't for all in the world understand why she would want to go outside of the tower when it was cold and wet and raining outside, instead of a sunny, warm day. Now he did. He watched her dance in the rain, her red hair sticking to her face and her robes heavy from the water. She looked... happy. Happier than when the sun was shining and warm on her skin. He couldn't understand why, but he didn't ask. He never did. He was happy just watching her.
This might be the last time that she...
He wasn't going to think about it. He wouldn't allow himself. It wouldn't happen.
He was standing by the door to the library, guarding the apprentices, watching them read old books with tattered spines and scarred covers. Mostly, he was watching her.
He shouldn't, Maker he really shouldn't, but he couldn't keep his eyes off her. She was why he had come to disagree with the Chantry about mages, about
Malik's Honor-Altair's Life How long had he been standing there staring vacantly at the blank piece of parchment holding a now dry quill in his hand? Unable to sleep, and the moon now high over Jerusalem, Malik had decided to begin tomorrows work by making more maps for his fellow assassins. But his mind kept creeping back to that pathetic excuse for one of his kind sleeping in the main chamber of the assassin's bureau. The only thing Malik was grateful for that day was that Altair had retired quickly so he didn't have to make useless small talk with him. Not that he would have bothered trying to have a civilized conversation with Altair anyway. Even speaking business with him about the assassination plans for Talal still provoked too many raw emotions. Emotions stronger than the physical anguish he had endured when his arm had been amputated because of the severe injuries he received when he and Kadar were left to retrieve the Piece of Eden.Malik's Honor-Altair's Life6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"You really sure you wanna do this? I mean, what if they don't like me? The whole thing about the dad putting a shotgun barrel in my face comes to mind..." Desmond grimaced a bit as he tugged restlessly at the hem of his shirt, sitting on the edge of his bed and looking up at Shaun.
Shaun just pulled Desmond's hand away from his shirt, "My family isn't like that. Calm down. We've been together for a year so it's about time you met them..." He ran a hand over Desmond's hair and chuckled at how nervous the other man was. As soon as Desmond had heard that Shaun's family was going to be visiting from the U.K., he had begun to freak out, constantly talking to himself and rehearsing what he was going to say to them. Shaun just kept out of his way, letting him do as he pleased until the day of their arrival. "Come on, get up," Shaun yanked Desmond up to stand, "It's almost noon and mum will get worried if we're late."
Desmond made a panicked sound as he stood, smoothing his hand over his hair

Brina opened her eyes; slightly disoriented when she didn't see stars. Oh that's right I'm not on the Normandy, Im-Ohhhh ..
She turned over, nipping a green scaled shoulder, "Morning starshine the Earth says hello!"
She received a deep, gravelly groan as a response.
"Come on wake up."
"I'm going to hurt you "
"You are welcome to try "
She slapped him with her pillow, Thane giving no reaction whatsoever. "Damn it " She decided to try another tactic.
Brina cuddled up to his back, sliding her hands around his torso. She could swear she heard him purr. She nipped his shoulder again, her hands sliding over his stomach, if he'd just turn over slightly
He did; laying a small kiss against her jaw. Brina chose that moment to strike by jabbing her fingers into his sides. Thane gave a small yelp as he leapt out of the bed.
Brina couldn't stop laughing, the look on his face was priceless; both slightly disoriented

Chapter 5 - Checkmate
While traveling from one solar system to another, Lieutenant James Vega came to the conclusion that this would be the opportune moment to approach the Commander. He had questions brewing about the recent mission Nevada Shepard embarked on with her fellow Alliance officer. Although, it was hardly about the mission it was about their interactions.
The way Major Alenko idolized Shepard was becoming a nuisance and was causing the rivalry between them to brew. James didn't know how much longer he would be able to control his urges to settle things between them once and for all. The only thing holding him back was his devotion to the Commander. He wanted nothing more than to protect her but if she refused it if she desired somethin

Eyebrows lifting up at the sound of books slamming together, Desmond watched as Shaun stood up from his desk, his fingers flipping through ancient pages and gliding over older parchment. Walking across the room, Desmond peered down over Shaun's shoulder to look down at the page.
"Vinci, illegitimete child...married...moved...Spain...married...moved....Englan-...fuck...fucking hell..."
"D-Desmond!" Shaun instinctivly tried to close the book he'd been poring over, but a hand jerked out, and Desmond moved to stand in front of Shaun, looking down at the page. It was a rather detailed family tree, and one of the most recent names in it was all too familiar.
"You're looking up your family tree?" Desmond asked. Shaun nodded silently, his cheeks burning.
"...I didn't know you were part Italian."
"I'm...I'm not...I can't be...My family has been in England for hundreds of years, they came across from Spain after moving there from It...shit!"

He was barely aware of Lucy's voice as she kept on talking about something he couldn't quite understand- his attention was focused on the copper-haired male in the hopes that he could catch his gaze and indicate he wanted to speak with him in private. However, the soon-to-be-assassin's hopes were quickly crushed as the British male left the room with a rather annoyed expression on his face. Well, more annoyed than usual. Or.. well. That wasn't quite right, either. The historian only seemed to be ticked off whenever Desmond was involved. At that, Desmond felt a pang of sadness that crumbled his already weak resolve.
The problem had started early this morning when Rebecca had announced with obvious excitement that today was Valentine's day. This normally wouldn't have bothered Desmond, simply because of the fact that he

This wasn't her cabin.
This wasn't her bed.
This wasn't even her shower and yet Blakely was here jeopardizing Kaidan's career instead of leading her team to destroy the probe that disrupted communication channels. It felt wrong to be sneaking off, but this was their only chance to be together because the request for shore leave was again delayed due to pending circumstances.
Everything from the massacre on Akuze to this point had been a test. A test to see if she would crack. A test to see if a woman could rise on her own merit and not because she slept with the right people on the way up. A test to see if she would put her career before a family. A choice that her mother failed to do and made sure that Blakely knew

Desmond stepped back slightly, immediately letting the man into the dark apartment then taking his dripping coat, helping him in to stand on the linoleum of the kitchen floor. He shut the door then looked back at Shaun. "Can you go get a towel please? And some spare clothes before he catches pneumonia or something?"
Malik snorted. "I'm not that fragile, Desmond. You know that," he sniffed quietly as he ran his hand back through his hair, reaching out for the towel when the Brit brought it out for him. He muttered his thanks then froze as Desmond took the towel himself and started rubbing it over the oldest man's hair like a fussing mother. "For Christ's sake, Desmond, stop it "
"Where's Altair?" Shaun's voice piped up from the hall, making Malik turn around then grimace as he lowered his head, pulling the towel out of Desmond's grip and using it to dry himself. At his silence, Desmond ran a hand down over his own face and shook his head.
