At some point she realized she was breathing.
Sensations came slowly after that. That muffled thudding...her heartbeat, footsteps, or guns in the distance? She tried to open her eyes, but the blackness was absolute. A finger twitched. Her lips - everything was numb - her lips parted and she tried to speak, but everything was muffled, she couldn't move, she couldn't move! She tried to yell and only managed to produce a choked whimper.
A sudden burst of noise and activity, a pinch on her arm, and everything spiraled back into oblivion.
There was a beeping. It was annoying. How long had it been going on?
She slowly pulled herself out of unconsciousness. It was a huge effort to open her eyes, almost an unbearable task to focus them. The stark white and bright light of the room made her headache -- because by god, she had a massive headache --- about ten times worse instantly. An involuntary moan escaped her, which then made her realize just how absolutely foul her mouth tasted. Where

After the confrontation with the Illusive Man and the talk with Anderson (uncut version), you'll get a few different endings depending on your EMS.
If the EMS is low, Admiral Hackett will radio Shepard, telling him the crucible isn't firing, and Shepard will fall unconscious and bleed out. We will be shown how the ground team you brought with you is killed by Harbinger, and the entire fleet including the Normandy will be utterly defeated. After the credits a cinematic will show archeologists from the next cycle finding Liara's time capsule. (Extremely evolved pyjaks perhaps?)
If your EMS is a bit higher, but still not too good, the crucible will fire, but large parts of the fleet, your final squad mates on Earth and Shepard will die. We'll get closure a la Dragon Age: Origins via text describing what happened to all the races and characters depending on your
Mass Effect 3: The Tide TurnsA massive pulse of energy erupted from the Citadel. The waveform crashed against the approaching Reapers. Great electric storms arced across the surface of each machine. Then they drifted along their vectors. On board SSV Kilimanjaro, Admiral Hackett ordered a status report.Mass Effect 3: The Tide Turns3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
His sensor officer replied, "Minimal heat signatures from the enemy. Kinetic barriers down."
"All ships, this is Admiral Hackett, target the nearest Reaper and hit it with everything we got!" said Hackett over the fleet comm.
The combined firepower of hundreds of ships tore apart the nearest target. Then it shifted to a second and then a third as more survivors joined the fray. The Reapers stirred, but without their barriers they were easy prey for the allied fleet. One made a run at the Destiny Ascension, only to be ripped to shreds by a massive broadside from Kwunu's Thanix Magn

Three weeks after the Battle of Earth.
Faint voices broke through the darkness.
"Liara, he is awake," said one. The last time I heard that voice I come back from the dead. Had she brought me back again?
Someone squeezed my hand. Warmth tingled through the fingertips.
"It's alright Shepard, I'm here, just go back sleep."
Moments later my eyes snapped open. It took a second for the world to come into focus. Liara hummed a song as she arranged a bouquet of flowers to my right.
"Good morning!" she said. She bent down and kissed my forehead. "You had us worried for a bit there. Miranda went to talk to the doctor on watch."
"Miranda? Why is she here?" an uncontrollable coughing fit wracked my chest. Liara pressed a cup of water to my lips. After a few gulps my throat cleared. "Where's she? And why are you calling her

It was dark, pitch black, she couldn't even see her hand in front of her face, 'where am I?' she thought. Then as suddenly as the thought left her mind a white light appeared in the distance, with no place else to go she ran towards it while it became bigger and bigger until it engulfed her and then she saw... "Kaidan?!"
"It's the right choice and you know it Ash" he said, it was Virmire, Kaidan was holding back the geth defending the bomb that was supposed to blow up the whole facility "it was an honor working with you commander, I don't regret a thing..."
Shock and confusion took over Shepard's face "what? No, Kaidan!! I'm sorry..." she said painfully, trying to reach out to him, but then the explosion came and everything went white as she closed her eyes protecting them from the flash. When she opened them, a massive tall stru

A fix-fic based on my take of the Reapers motivations and the ending:
I pressed the button on the console, but nothing happened. Hackett screamed in my ear. I had nothing for him except painful grunts. The universe turned black.
"Shepard, wake up," said a child like voice.
"Where am I?" I asked.
A projection of some sort stood before me.
It looked like the kid in Vancouver, the one playing with the fighter model, the one that died .
"Shepard, wake up," it repeat.
"Who are you, what are you?"
"I am a remnant, a fraction," it said.
"I don't " pain ripped away my strength, "I don't have time for games; show yourself, whatever you are."
The projection changed into an alien form, with large triple set of dark eyes, similar to the Keepers.
"I am The Last. There is little time, the Reapers know you are here," it said.
Hackett called over the radio, "The Reapers are disengaging from the battle and are heading for the Citadel. Whatever you did spooked

"Well what do we have here?" said Shepard as she walked into Liara's room and saw her laying on her bed face down, a glass hanging in a hand and a liquor bottle in the other. She had gotten up to get some snack since she couldn't sleep, and she thought about checking on Liara, now she was so very glad she had taken that decision.
"Shepard!!! so glad you could join us!!!" said Liara excited, trying to get up the bed and staggering a lot in the process
"Us?" replied Shepard confused and amused by Liara's behavior, she looked so funny
"Yeah!! me... and my new friend" she answered grinning showing Shepard the liquor bottle
"I think your new friend has made you a little drunk" Shepard said sarcastically, as she stood there, with her arms crossed, watching Liara trying to walk towards her
"I'm not drunk!

She turned on her side and readjusted her pillows for what was probably the hundredth that night. As weary as she was, sleep should have been an easy task. Unfortunately her mind did not want to cooperate with what her body was demanding. Her mind wanted to think about Earth and all the horrors taking place there, about Kaiden and the angry bruises on his face, about Palaven and about Garrus. She hoped her turian friend was alive and well. Shepard uttered a dejected sigh and pulled herself off the mattress. She arched her back, stretching the sore muscles on her lithe frame that protested against the notion of having to do more work. Perhaps a stroll around the Normandy would ease her mind. Shepard stepped into her slippers and made for the elevator.
The CIC had been eerily quit even if the hour was late. The silence a reminder of when the Collector's had abducted her crew. Shepard chased away the memories of the Collector base. She did not need another horrible thing to dwell on. The

When you go out on your Pilgrimage, you aren't supposed to come back untouched. You're supposed to learn about the rest of the world to benefit your people. Trying to find out more about the geth was what I thought would be the best way to do that.
My father had a picture of a house that he'd show me when I was younger. He'd say, "this is where we'll live, Tali'Zorah. We won't have to worry about suit environments then."
So, I fight because I love my father, and because through him, I've come to be able to love the rest of the galaxy too. And because I love the picture of that house enough to want it to be more than a piece of paper.

"What is it now, Joker?" his voice was gruff as he addressed the helmsman, as he already had several time-wasting reports to make to Miranda and the Illusive Man, not to mention the modifications he had to finish to both his armor and the Normandy's before their final mission.
"Uh, Tali just went to have a...'chat' with Legion," he replied hastily, humor an undertone in his voice. Shepard groaned, running a hand through his hair, not even wanting to imagine what could have gone wrong to set kind, loving Tali off. "You'd better get down to the AI Core," Nodding his head even though he knew Joker couldn't see, he set off at a quick pace towards the bickering geth and quarian, hoping he could keep both parties from injury.

Was this really happening? She had to choose between TIM's solution, turning everyone into a synthetic/organic form, which sounded a lot like what Saren wanted to do in the first place, or destroying the reapers and the Geth and EDI along too?

I fight for freedom, mine and everyone's, I fight for the right to choose our own fate. And if I die, I'll die knowing I did everything I could to stop you.

Aria had nothing against death, especially not when it concerned the scum of Omega. Thus the population of the lower decks regulated very well by itself, because nobody liked it when too many Vorcha were running around. But when she found for the third night in a row a dead rodent in her apartment, she was getting a bit weary of the matter. She waited for the familiar "meow" which she heard again for the past evenings.
Just like a week ago, the animal had resurfaced. It had become much larger, but still small, slim, and it seemed to Aria like an animal that knew what it wanted. In her bed and her company and obviously the dead animals were meant to put her in the mood to accept it.

You're a bad example of everything British.
Someone American upsets the boss,
But it's you who gets the loss.
Carry on soldier.
I'm not against you got it?
I play by all the same rules,
But that goes with passport.
But you've really made me angry.
Because you died
You stand with pride.
Then you wish you never died.
Like all Brits you go to heaven,
Because Brits don't have to try.
Others wonder why,
But it's a simple fact
No matter if you're choked
Fried or eaten alive.
Dead in space with no air supply.
You're not going to hell alright?
So I'll throw you off a hill,
Give you poisoned toast with dill,
No regrets because I won't miss you when you're dead.
You might threaten to come back,
But that's not British that's a fact.
Because you'll be replaced just like that.
On the Death Star it's a hazard.
There are thousands just like you.
Disposable Brits ready like you.
And then you fail your orders
Sith Lord Vader kills you off,
Force chokes you as you're so wrong.

Everyone has just been hanging out around the house, playing video games, swimming, writing songs, practsing. Personally, I enjoy sleeping! But, the other night a few things began to change...and at first I thought it would pass, but I was wrong.
It was a Saturday, and Tom, Gustav, Georg, and I were watching a movie. I wasn't paying much attention really, I have other things on my mind right now. I had this tune in my head, and I couldn't get it out. It was so annoying! It was a song that I came up with in a dream that I had the night before, only the tune, not the words, but still! Ugh! It was a romantic song, deffinately, the kind of song that you play at prom for the king and gueen. But I don't have a girlfriend, and I don't love anyone at the moment, so...where is it all coming from?
