Garrus ReflectsMy investigation into Saren included access to the personnel files of the entire Normandy crew, but even without reading her dossier I would have known who Shepard was the moment she walked into the Presidium. She was one of those rare individuals who wear authority like a second skin. It showed in the way she was aware of everything around her while at the same time focusing on her goal. In the way her squad followed behind her, falling naturally into their support roles. You respected her not because of her rank or because some regulation said you had to, but because the indefinable energy she radiated gave you no choice but to believe in her. And I soon came to learn first-hand the power of that silent synergy she formed with everyone around her.Garrus Reflects3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Now, sitting in her cabin, watching her sleep, I think back to those early days. All the things they said about me were true. I was idealistic, hot-headed, impulsive, definitely a shoot first ask questions later kind of guy. I hated injusti

Chapter 2 Disaster
The trip to their last target seemed to be just as uneventful as the whole mission had beenthey would arrive into the orbit, do some scanning, land the Mako if deemed necessary and be done with it in a few hours. Garrus closed is toolkit and leaned on one of Mako's wheels. As frustrating as their fruitless geth-hunt had been so far, at least he wasn't back at C-Sec banging his head on the byrocratic walls the system had set up. And spending time with Shepard and her crew definitely beat hauling criminals into cells around Citadel. He closed his eyes and rested his head on the wheelhe really liked it here.
"Brace for evasive manoeuvres!" Joker's voice came over the intercom suddenly and Garrus felt the cargo deck lurch under his feet.
"What the...?" Garrus thought grabbing a hold the vehicle that was too heavy to be shaken by the jumping of the ship. The cargo hold didn't have any viewports so he had no idea what was going on

MASS EFFECT 3: ANDROMEDA SERIES
The Illusive Man tapped his cigarette against the ash tray with impatient strokes. An exhaustive sigh slid out through his gritted teeth; he was not pleased. Word came in several minutes ago that Shepard and his team made it back out of the Omega 4 Relay with no casualties; however, instead of keeping the Reaper technology, Shepard decided to destroy it. This angered the Illusive Man to no end, humanity finally had the means to secure its dominant position of the galaxy and instead Shepard made the choice of siding with the aliens, the enemy. No one crossed the Illusive Man. No one.
A female servant in her late twenty's ushered over to refill his glass with more brandy but he turned her away. Right now, all he wanted was to confront Shepard and see where his alliance truly was. Throughout the entire campaign, the Commander made a lot of choices that he wouldn't agree with, nevertheless this

I've no doubt the entire ship knows Garrus came to my cabin last night, and like the rest, I'm sure you're wondering what happened. (Bless Edi and the privacy veil she gave us.) He left a short while ago to run a final set of calibrations before we hit the relay, so I may as well gather my thoughts while I can.
I won't bore you with the details, suffice to say we took our time - knowing full well this might be the only opportunity we would ever have to be together. At first it was enough just to touch but slowly we began to learn about each other, explore our differences as well as our similarities. There were a few awkward moments and a lot of laughter but no embarrassment. And when we were ready, that first time was very slow and very gentle as we connected and bonded in ways I never would have thought possible. The second time was for fun and the third time, when he finally got it through that thick mass of plates that passes for a head that he wasn't going to hurt me, we bo

Andromeda kept her distance as she followed her Turian friend up the staircase that led into Eternity. The same seductive rhythms filled the air as the patrons lounged about on the comfortable sofas and tables. The atmosphere was much different than she was familiar with on Omega. She cracked a smile seeing a maiden Asari performing an erotic table dance while a young human male, Salarian and Turian watched. Well almost different.
Garrus Vakarian made a beeline to the Asari bartender whose attention was captured by a photo in front of her. Andromeda couldn't make out who the photo was of, but she assumed it had to be some sort of relative or significant other given the Asari's shielded yet sadden expression. She glanced up and quickly slid the photo back underneath the counter as she noticed the Turian approaching her. A warm playful smile spread across her lips. "What ca

The Normandy. Walking her decks for the first time two years ago sent chills up my spine. Good chills. Like the kind you get when you meet someone and know immediately that sooner or later you'll wake up in the same bed. Like the kind I got the first time I met Kaidan Alenko. Only with the Normandy, I knew it was love. With Kaidan, well, it's been two years.
You've asked me more than once to write down my memories, Miranda. Search for gaps. Not that I'd tell you if I found any. If you thought the project you poured yourself into for so long had turned out anything less than perfect, I've no doubt you'd take it as a personal affront. Might even try to go back in and correct the flaw.
Okay, bad joke. We may have gotten off to a shaky start but I've come to realize you care about things more deeply than you'll ever admit. And you helped save Garrus. So I owe you. And so I'll write.
Garrus. Now that brings back memories. The first time I saw him sta

Chapter 48 – The dream
“Saren’s hiding something,” Garrus heard his own voice speaking as the world around him slowly came into hazy focus. “Give me more time. Stall them.”
He was standing on the Citadel, near the podium where the Council conducted its official meetings. The waterfall behind his back was flowing as always before, but it was eerily silent and his voice echoed strangely.
“Stall the Council? Don’t be ridiculous,” executor Pallin’s voice said, but Garrus noticed that however he strained his eyes, he couldn't bring the other turian's face into proper focus. “Your investigation is over, Garrus.”
There was finality in executor Pallin's voice and Garrus knew that trying to talk sense into him was about equal with talking to a wall: useless waste of time. But Garrus knew Saren was a traitor, the rogue Spectre had allied himself with the Sovereign—a Reaper, terrifying machine creature
