The Night Before Mass Effect 3The Night Before Mass Effect 3
by Kyle Evora
'Twas the night before the reapers came, and all through the land,
the people wanted Shepard back in command.
The rifles were strapped to their holsters with care,
while thinking of gunshots flying through the air.
The husks were skewered all snug on their spikes,
with visions of devouring cute human tykes.
Garrus in his turtle shell, and Joker in his cap,
Had hustled poor James in poker, the poor noobie sap.
When down on Earth there arose such a clatter,
Shepard leapt into action to put an end to the matter.
Down to the Normandy he ran oh so very fast,
and thought of the decisions he had made in the past.
The moon was one of the first places to go,
and the civilians could do little but cry "where'd it go?"
When, what do my wondering eyes should appear,
but a big badass Krogan drinking a couple of beers.
With a giant shotgun, so powerful yet quick,
I knew in a moment Wrex had asses to kick.
More rapid than the Ascension the Normandy came,

Chapter 8 Bending Protocol
With the Normandy safely docked at the Citadel, the crew was taking a brief moment to relax before their next venture. Major Kaidan Alenko joined Lieutenant Steve Cortez, Garrus Vakarian, and Kenneth Donnelly at one of James Vega's infamous card games. The hangar was filled with the stench of hard liquor and the roars of their laughter.
"I would be winning if someone wasn't cheating!" Kaidan leaned back in his chair, throwing down his cards on the table.
James hunched forward and collected his earnings, "No you're just really bad at this game."
"You're pretty bad, Major," Kenneth added, pouring another glass.
"I give up."
"Oh come on Kaidan," Steve reass

"You're coming with me to Earth. Now," Admiral Anderson commanded, walking proudly in his Alliance blues. With his entourage following closely behind him, he stood out amongst the crowd of degenerates in Omega. A tall and brawny soldier with blood dripping from his Mohawk also accompanied him on his way to the docking bay.
"Forget it. There's nothing for me there," Lieutenant James Vega barked.
"I've got something for you. Something you haven't had before."
"Just throw me in the goddamned brig and be done with it!"
"You're not far off, Lieutenant," the Admiral shot back from the airlock of the SR-2, "Only you'll be guarding the brig."
Vega followed Anderson aboard and was immediately mesmerized by the Normandy's inte
What if This Storm EndsGarrus ran into the hospital, quick on his feet. He had to get to Jane, regardless of who tried to stop him. He darted around several people, ignoring the medical staff and others that were shouting at him. He had to see Shepard, even if she was already gone, he needed to be able to see her, to hold her, just one last time. That was all he needed. The turian had heard the news of her survival, but her unlikely odds of recovery.What if This Storm Ends3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Her words rang like a bell in his mind;
'There's only so much fight in a person...only so much death you can take before...' No, he couldn't think about that. Garrus knew that Shepard was strong and he knew that she would at least try to fight against it. She was the owner of her life and her death. However, from what he had heard, this time it was different.
He wasn't ready to accept that she wasn't going to make. Jane was a fighter, it's what she lived for. She laughed at death; the Sole Survivor of Akuze, destroyer of the Collectors. She

Commander Shepard looked out the window of the apartment at the Armax Arsenal Combat Arena just across the strip, although not really seeing it. While his eyes scoped the holographic lettering of the building, his mind was combing the bulge of the right pocket of his favorite jacket: an N7-themed black cotton hooded jacket that harkened back to 20th and 21st century fashion. Reaching his callused hand into the pocket, he pulled out what it so contained: a black velvet case that contained one of the most special purchases he hoped he would ever make.
As his fingers unconsciously stroked the soft velvet, Shepard thought about the man the contained was intended for. He had known the man for a few years now, but only recently did he realize he had deep feelings for him. A few weeks ago, Shepard got to sit down with him at Apollo Café on the Presidium so they could relax and talk over lunch and drinks. Before they gave themselves the chance to order, his love said something that made

Commander (y/n) Shepard let out a heavy sigh as the headache inducing thumping of the obnoxiously loud music thundered all around, making her insides vibrate along to the fast paced beat. She had never liked clubs…..well, despised was the word that was better fit her feelings towards these kinds of places. So why was she spending her valuable time here in this bar when she should be out saving humanity from the Collectors? Well, the long and short of it was that her companions thought that she was working herself too hard and needed to let loose, even if it was just for one night at the near

You sighed as you took another sip of the hooch that your British boyfriend, Arthur, bought for you when you entered the lively speakeasy. As you swallowed the alcohol, you wondered where he could possibly be. You hadn't seen him since he had excused himself to go iron his shoelaces. Over the loud ragtime music and chatter, you thought you heard Arthur's distant laughter behind you and turned around to see if he was returning to you. Through the crowd, you could barely see the form of the handsome Brit necking with some other dame.
"Dumb Dora!" you spat as tears began to well up in your (e/c) eyes, "How could I be so stupid?"
You let your head fall onto the counter top and covered it with your arms as you began to weep. A hand touched your shoulder making you fall silent for a moment.
"Hey, what's eating you, doll?"
You lifted your head off of the bar and loo
