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

Jane can see her own reflection in the corner of her eye for a brief moment before she closes her eyes, taking a deep breath, just listening to the recorded message. The last message left for her by her lover, the only thing she had left of him now.
' You awoke me Shepard. My heart quickened its sluggish beat if only to remain at your side and protect you with everything that I am.'
She could hear the door to the Life Support open and close behind her, but she didn't turn to see who entered the room, she didn't even open her eyes again, because she already knew. She also knew that out of all the people she didn't want to talk right now, he was at the top of that list.
So she just continued to listen to the message, shutting out the rest of the world while just hearing the drell's recorded voice.

"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.

A hell, a trash pit, a paradise
All that common corny references could match it perfectly if used from certain point of view! For some it was place of desperae living, for others - just a job, for third ones - home, sweet home!
But in one thing all living there would agree comletely - it was a very grim and dark world in dozen meanings of each of this words: deadly, dangerous, evil, sinister It was the most unwelcome, unpleasant and severe place to live outside and inside Terminus system, the only thing it lacked for the ful set was flashing "NOT Welcome!" sign...

At Last, a Reply... Kaidan found himself thankful that it was dark by the time he had reached his apartment. Granted, it was only midday, but the atmosphere had clouded over in anticipation for a storm, leaving little light that managed to break through the clouds. The lighting seemed appropriate, given his melancholy mood, he thought to himself as he made his way through his apartment. He hadn't bothered clicking on any of the lights when he came home- the natural light coming from the window didn't quite fill the apartment, but it was enough to see where he was going. His weary eyes scanned the space, lingering on his black couch for a moment, trying not to think of when Olivea had cuddled against him there, shortly after the Battle of the Citadel, before his gaze came to rest on his work desk, a soft sigh finally breaking past his lips.At Last, a Reply...4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The memories there were even more haunting.
The Prayers for the Wicked"Fucking Idiotic stupid " Jane Shepard face palmed herself, her teeth were crunching from fury that now was burning in her soul: all this time, all those lives they lost if only she`d known this sooner! And the answer was so obvious... It was like to get a cake made of shit on your birthday - and to have it thrown in your face rather than just presented!The Prayers for the Wicked3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Shepard swallowed another few hundred swearings and turned away from the monitor and her comrades - she needed a moment of her own.
There was a certain charm to the Illusive man`s chamber the warm soft shine of the huge slowly dying giant star that reflected from the mirrored floor and colored the entire room with many amber shades was soothing. Yet Jane saw only fire burning, hurting, devastating In a moment this glow reminded her of Earth, of Paleval, of Thessia She imagined how this fire dances and raging on the streets of her home planet, how thick dark pillars of smoke pierce the sk

There was a long and very detailed list of things that Commander Jane Shepard hated: from top to bottom it consisted of so many position that no sane individual could count without changing their status to insane
But most of all Jane hated one thing to be wakened up in the middle of the sweetest dream with annoying electronic voice!
"Commander Shepard! Good Morning!"
With a very long and heavy sigh that didn`t promise anything good, Jane opened her eyes and looked from under the thick blanket on the round blue holographic display on her desk!
"Begone before I turn your vertual ass into actual dust!"
"But I have indicated "
She never actually finished her speech since the next second the mighty wave of Dark Energy ripped the interface off the table with its roots. As lifeless device fell on her cabin`s floor leaving only quite sizzle and sparks Commander put her hand back under the blank

"Alright, let's check this stuff Let's see Polychlorinated biphenyl samples found in Caelum at university in Kentucky Proven effects detrimental to health Fourteen deaths in Rhodes Island No persecution Hah! Jackpot!"
This happy, somewhat smug exclamation belonged to a nerdy-looking teenager, sitting behind his computer in a shabby apartment in the East End of London. He had been living here for nearly six months now and frankly, he was perfectly fine with it.
If the people close to Shaun Hastings would be asked about the teen, they would describe him as a class clown and a smart-aleck, a radical and a firebrand. Some would even describe him as a slacker. A guy who wasted his obvious intelligence and abilities by rebelling against society and making nothing of his life.
Shaun, however, saw things differently. As far as he was concerned, he got it made. Dropping out of high school and moving out of his parents' house had fre

Ignoring the pain in his chest and limps, trying his best to keep breathing steadily, Shaun raced through Victoria Park. Panting heavily and squinting his eyes to make out his way in the darkness and shadows, he continued running, trying to keep going forward despite the increasing protests of his legs.
Part of him felt the urge to stop or at least look over his shoulder to see if anyone had followed him. That or to see if Rebecca was still alive and coming after him. The girl was still in the middle of that gunfire inferno and only God knew if those men from Abstergo had fallen for her distraction maneuver. For all he knew, they could be right after him and if that was the case, he'd rather know.
Still, despite the temptation, he knew that wasting any time to do such a thing would be suicide. These men weren't playing around and if they saw him, they would most likely shoot him on sight. In his condition, combined with his utter lack of combat skills, he

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

Fenris's heart felt like it would burst in his chest, ice like claws gripped it like he had gripped so many others. It was odd, the feeling he must have given others, but this was much more painful. His forest colored eyes focused on the rogue’s form.
Rin Hawke was circling around the Qunari Arishok, her daggers tight in her hands, so tight her knuckles went white, and aimed to strike. Her amber eyes were focused on the Qunari, they were filled to the brim with fear, anger and pure concentration.
It had been he who had proposed that Hawke and the Arishok should duel, and if she were to die, it would be his fault, as well as Isabela's and the relic she had stolen. The pirate stood close to him, her golden eyes flickered with concern and worry. She knew the odds of Hawke surviving, it was slim to none. But they all knew that.

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.

"Argh!" Jane Shepard roared like a steam locomotive, stumping her fist into the unlucky innocent table desk. The hit caused a nasty echo that was instantly enforced by the steel walls of the compound and wave of pain through the arm and a few more angry swearing.
