Chapter 1 - Impossibilities
Shepard stormed into the laboratory of the salarian doctor, the sense of urgency overpowering the atmosphere. She slouched over the table using one hand to hold her up and the other firmly pressed against her stomach.
Mordin Solus immediately looked up at his patient, "Commander?"
"Mordin… there's something wrong with me. I've been feeling really unusual lately."
"Explain your symptoms."
"Well, I am constantly feeling nauseated. I've been aching in places I didn't even know could hurt. Not to mention the body temperature fluctuations and the constant light-headedness. All I want to do is sleep and it's making it very difficult to get anything done."
The doctor rubbed his chin, "How long have you been experiencing these ill effects?"

He could hardly believe any of this was real. He was nothing more than a simple grunt of a soldier for the Alliance a few years ago, now he was a legendary war hero that repelled the biggest threat the known galaxy had ever seen. He was living a dream; his reality had warped into an endless dream with nothing but happiness and the occasional politics to fill it. There was still fighting, and although the races were attempting peace and equality there was always work that needed to be done, life that needed to be improved. But John Shepard was content. He had everything he could ever desire, a large and exquisite house, the support of all of his friends, and Jane.
Jane was the yin to his yang, his lover, his wife, his everything. He had never thought he would be so lucky as to clumsily fall in love with her and be with her through it all. His spine was shivering as he entered the threshold from the hallway into the kitchen finding her standing, leaning heavily into the island in the mid
Late for our wedding - JohnXJane Shepard“I can’t believe we’re going to be late for our own wedding.” Jane Shepard huffed in annoyance. She blew a stray strand of her hair that had fallen free of her pony tail. She had it up today; their wedding planner had gotten a hair stylist to dress it up in this fancy bun to counter the lower cut wedding dress she had. Of course, John always thought she looked beautiful. It didn’t matter if her hair was up, down, or strewn out when she was asleep, he always found her radiant and alluring. Her emerald eyes had darkened substantially with agitation as she glowered toward him. “You know its bad form for the bride and groom to show up together John.” Jane snipped in a low growl of a voice.Late for our wedding - JohnXJane Shepard2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Here,take him."Shepard ordered James,giving him Alenko's arm. Kaidan hesitated leaving her,but he had no choice. He reluctantly crossed his arm over Vega's shoulder,shouting her name. He stared back at her.
"You gotta get out of here."Shepard ordered them,but Kaidan couldn't accept it. He couldn't just leave her behind,get into Normandy and leave. It was wrong. So fucking wrong.
"Yeah,that's not gonna happen!"Kaidan told her,somehow a bit decisive. He seemed determined to stay there,fight,be with her. However,Commander had a different opinion about it. Victorianna had to make sure he was safe.
"Don't argue with me,Kaidan." Shepard tried to shield herself behind her emotions for him and her determination to the purpose she was set to finish. She looked at him through the eyes. Her words were stable,warm and leaving him no choice but obedience. Nevertheless,Kaidan didn't seem able to give up on his powers and his love.

Like a knife twisting in my gut
I've been a knave gentleman before
And recent events show it’s what I'm not
Reviving my shadow that constantly screams
The screaming that always fell on my deaf ears
Is the person on the other side of the window pane
Seeing my oblivious demise for years
Love is a word that came tainted to me
Wrapped in a cynical coat and presented
Learning the bad side from then onwards
Developing into something I'd later resent
As a culprit to my crime and misery
I grew a new stance and started again
To learn that I need to take those chances
And that there’s another emotion other than pain
So please be gentle with my new start
For I am mendable but damaged goods
My tainted heart and scared skin is repairing
Treat me more carefully than others would
The truth is I drag my past along with me
The ones that broke me keep me from doing it again
Let me learn and grow old with you
I’ll become that gentleman and love you back the

She stood there, at the console, probably running some diagnostics, oblivious to her surroundings. I leaned on the doorway, looking at her, up and down. Man! She has such a perfect body. Not short, but not too tall. Curves in all the right places. Hair as black as coal and eyes as blue as the sky over Earth. And that smile. I could watch her smile all day long, and it still wouldn't be enough.
Small smile danced on my lips as I quietly started walking towards her. She was so focused on her work, she didn't hear me approach.
I slid my arms around her slim waist, pulling her a little towards me. I inhaled her scent, as I kissed her neck. She was startled at first, trying to turn around and face the one who violated her personal space. But she recognized me soon enough, and she relaxed
I Had That Faded FeelingI had that kind of love for you, the love that had neither end nor boundaries. We'd sit for hours just talking, laying there without saying a word, stare at the ceiling and let the emitting moonlight shine in the room giving us a shallow light through the night. All night we'd talk about subjects so random and scattered, from pet hates to beliefs and thoughts, no matter how deep or weird the answer was, we accepted each other's answer. Until this night, I'd never had this bond with someone before, times like this to me only happened in re-runs of Hollywood movies and programs where every week had a moral of a story and a happy ending; I couldn't work out how I ended up in this situation, but there wasn't a chance of me questioning it at all.I Had That Faded Feeling2 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This

I'm only human
Your head's high and tear's dry
Please forgive me for doing these things.
I built you up to let you down its my fault.
And now realise we could never together grow old.
How could I just let go and lose your smile?
Goodbye is a word I wish that will never be used
Goodbye is needed when our future never existed.
Our love was my idea it shouldn't be mistreated.
Oh it's my fault oh its my lost.
Oh I'm only human and I'm wrong
I'm only human and now your gone.
Oh it's my fault oh its my lost.
Oh I'm only human and I'm wrong
I'm only human and now I want.
Your smile's meaning of life, life won't last long.
My head's high but I'm not proud.
I Just can't look down I'm sorry.
Remembering your smile when we were still together.
These pain cannot be healed it cannot be lost
I regret that I fall in love I regret that wo ai ni.

Faded smile, dried tears
Back in time
Faint sound of a voice long gone,
A shadow of this friend’s smile,
Old image of a snowy winter dawn,
Ancient laughs… all were worthwhile
Flickering reminder, this shameful day
A first betrayal, suddenly refreshed
Scornful look haunting you again today
These old tears… you would have loved
To forget them all.
These whispers echoing at your ear,
You long wondered why they came
Suddenly drowning you again in fear,
Making better times again the same.
Smile to your old nightmares, it’s all past
Enjoy every good memory’s sweetness
Because no bad moment can ever outlast
The beauty of a tiny piece of happiness.
But, remember, you’ve only one life to live
Forget the aching past and taste the present
There’re so much nice things he can give
And every memory is part of it.

I looked up at the falling debris. This was turning into a habit, me blowing up large structures, while still in them.
"Move!" I yelled as I started towards the exit, dodging some of the smaller metal scraps that were falling from the ceiling.
Then the platform moved; Reaper-Human Larva made one last attempt to kill me and my team, before it fell into the oblivion, by tipping the platform off balance. That made me stagger. I had to grab the edge so I wouldnt slide down to my death.
But then I heard a scream that froze my blood. I saw Miranda, behind me, trying to grab something to hold on, clawing at the smooth surface with no success, while sliding down the platform. Fear filled me as I pushed myself off towards her and the abyss that awaited below us. I wasnt afraid about my own safety.
No, what terrified me was something happening to he

That I am that idiotic to throw this away
Please just look up and acknowledge me
I can't let it end in this manner or way
Glancing at my shoes it's apparent
Tears had fallen from your face to my feet
You look up and show me mascara running
Finally admitting and taking this defeat
Your feelings wouldn't change for us now
You take a breath in to finally speak to me
"The best has faded away with this breeze
For us there is no future from what I can see"
The final blow was there and then, vaulted shut
You slipped away without a word voiced
Eyes still fixed to mine and slowly walking back
Trying your upmost to keep yourself poised
I remain with concrete feet and watch you walk
Eye-sight glazing over as I well up in the moment
Learning to tolerate this inevitable endless suffering
That the one thing I lost, was something I had so great

A loud clap of thunder
I have the world at my fingertips.
As the hum of vibrations course through my body,
I am swept away in a vast, colorful world
Possibilities are truly as endless as my racing mind.
A heart-broken soul, lost in the dark abyss of pain
The joyful cry of a redeemed spirit
The sorrowful cry of a wolf to the moon
My shaking hands frantically travel across the keys
The simple feeling of belonging,
The complex emotion of wondering.
My every feeling is somehow transferred into the ivory as I approach the bridge.
My once heavy thoughts, who were weighing me down,
are suddenly lighter.
I feel myself break free and fly.
It's always there for me,
Beckoning softly with a hum of reassurance.
I strike a major chord as I come to the realization
What would I do without my piano?

Gardner was not fooled. "You could just ask."
Joker shot him a look. "For the sugar? No thanks, I can handle it myself."
"They're comparing scars." Gardner explained, ignoring Joker's evasive maneuver. "And judgin' by the way she keeps touching him..."
Abandoning secrecy, Joker swiveled his chair and stared. "I should be in there."

"Shepard! You need to wake up!" a voice yelled into Shepard's ear followed by a powerful blow to his face. "If you don't get up you are going to die!" that got his attention faster than a charging krogan. He opened his eyes to see the face of a woman right next to his. Her attention was on the other side of the room where a loud but muffled noise was sounding. She looked at him and Shepard saw a glimmer of hope in her eyes. She grabbed his shirt and pulled him off the table he was laying on to the floor. He hit the ground with a solid thud and clank. Whatever was fogging his mind was gone now as the pain sliced into his brain. Letting out a groan he pushed himse

Although I wear this mask on my face
Trying to find what I once had
From opportunities I embrace
I really shouldn't be so upset

"One ninety seven."
Normally, Shepard got her fair share of heart pounding excitement from missions. But the crew had been so focused on repairs and upgrades that Shepard was starting to hallucinate mining probes in her everyday routine.
"One ninety eight."
Since she was a child, Shepard had thrived on adrenaline. She worked hard, played hard, partied hard and saved sleeping for the dead.
"One ninety nine."
Except now she was dead and she suddenly couldn't sleep.
"Two ... hundred."
Shepard collapsed in a heap on the floor of her quarters. She stared at the ceiling, thin beads of sweat tracing down her face and neck, meditating to her heartbeat. She let her eyes close and her breathing steady. The low hum of the ship seeped into that part of her brain that comforted her.

With a deep breath, Shepard opened her eyes. She lying on a bed in some room, but it was hard to tell where. It was dark with nothing more illuminating the room than a single lamp dimly flickering on the ceiling. The ceiling was bare concrete, and it was missing pieces. There were sounds coming from the distance; guns fired, people screaming. She was in a warzone.
"Damn it", Shepard whispered and tried to push herself up. Suddenly she felt a stabbing pain in her right side and fell back down again, grinning her teeth.
The voice was familiar. She turned her head and saw Anderson running towards herself. He was sweaty and covered in blood, but fortunately very much alive.

A desolate plain of dirt,
mundane to eyes and soul.
A pain that doesn’t hurt,
a team without a goal.
This valley does but lie,
with nothing to infer.
But with a guiding eye,
the sun does confer.
She extends her reach down to this void,
giving potential to this land.
As nature’s magic steroid,
shines down from open hand.
Grey clouds take flight,
with thunder and bright light.
As water rains down below.
A tiny seedling pokes out the mist,
new colour spreading throughout the valley.
Stretching up to the sky it will kiss,
come on little seedling, do hurry.
A plant now spreads from the abyss,
growing branch and leaves all the same.
As it attempts to seek solace,
from unforgiving earth whence it came.
So here now stands the mighty oak tree,
casting out the dark of shade.
Standing as tall as can be,
the brown of death begins to fade.

Barefoot, Shepard exited the elevator into the darkness of the storage deck. She confidently padded along the cold metal grating, careful not to make any sounds loud enough to alert the skeleton crew of the Engineering department. Most of her squad had retired for the evening and she was thankful for it. She could only imagine what they would think of their new commander, scrounging around the cooling vents for smuggled goods.
The Normandy's state of the art drive core produced an unimaginable amount of heat in day to day tasks, and less than state of the art cooling systems were used to keep it in check. Most people considered the temperature difference in the storage bay an annoyance, but Shepard saw it as an opportunity.
She climbed atop the crates that Wrex normally guarded and pulled herself up toward a particularly inconspicuous vent. Pausing to check over her shoulder, she confirmed that she was alone. She produced a utility knife from her back pocket and pried

Nearing the End
Ch. 1 A Dream to Remember
It's been a month since the events at the Collector Base happened. Both Shepard and Tali have enjoyed what peace they've been able to have together by working on the Normandy's engines or just simply spending quality time together.
Although since the destruction of the Collector Base, Shepard has been having the vision from the Prothean beacon burning through his mind every night. Unfortunately for him, tonight will be the worse he has had yet.
As Shepard looked over the latest maintenance logs for the Normandy, EDI's synthetic voice comes through the intercom "Shepard, you have an incoming call from the Engineering Deck."
He pinches the bridge of his noes as he lets out a heavy sigh. "Tali again? I know what she's going to say, and she should know that she doesn't have to ask anymore." He pauses for a
