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

"I tried, Shepard." The Illusive Man said, as he placed the barrel of his pistol to his head and pulled the trigger.
His limp body fell onto the floor, and Shepard watched as his cold, steel-blue eyes went dark.
" Shepard!...-an you me?" Admiral Hackett's voice filled her head.
"This is Shepard, what is it Admiral?" She said into her radio, her free hand putting pressure on her wound. This was all too surreal; almost three years ago she had the same conversation with Saren, the rogue Turian Spectre who has become indoctrinated by the Reaper Sovereign. She was able to convince Saren of his indoctrination, but like the Illusive Man, he was far too gone.

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
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.

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

Subject 2: Tali'Zorah vas Normandy
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.

"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

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

"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.

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.

No longer a child.

No one sees beyond the mask.

Fulfilling my role in the universe,
Being the predator to a thousand thugs.
I've never cared for anyone anyway.

Now and then I think of night that we spend together
Like when we said I love you 'till I die"
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember
You can get addicted to a certain kind of Cerberus
Like resignation to the Man
The Illusive Man
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over
But you didn't have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
I don't even need your love
But you died in that crash
And I feel so rough
No, you didn't have to stoop so love
Accused me behind my friends
And then send one message
I guess that I don't need that though
Now you're just Lieutenant that I used to know
Now you're just Commander that I used to know
Now and then I think of all the time

Miranda Lawson's relationship with her commanding officer was complicated.
Brina Shepard was almost everything she hated. The woman was chaotic when there needed to be order, lazy when she was supposed to be working, and trusted aliens far more than the Cerberus officer thought she should.
Still, there needed to be a partnership regardless of how they felt about each other. They had a ship to run, and data to go over. Plans on their next move needed to be discussed and keeping things friendly made the whole process easier.
Now that the commander was slacking off when it came to gathering material for the Normandy's upgrades, Miranda felt it was her duty to remind the woman of her responsibilities.
And so it was with great authority and no small amount of arrogance that the operative found herself at Brina's door, EDI letting her through without question.
She paused at the strange sounds she heard was that moaning?
