The information was good, or it better be. There was no time to make mistakes. If this wasn't the place then it would be too late. He tried to remain calm, to not let the panic show on his face, but it was hard. When Varric had come back without Fenris he felt a lump in his gut, and when he found that the elf had been taken by the Tevinter Mages that weight only grew. The fear crept in again as he allowed himself to think about it. They were going to take his memories again, make him a blank slate so he couldn't fight them and then use him as Denarius had. He could not allow that to happen. Not to Fenris. Not ever again.
"I think this is it." Varric said, pointing to the large estate. "Based on what that information broker told me this should be that bastards place."
"Then let's pay him a friendly social call." Hawke said, gripping his staff.
"We should be careful. Who knows how many shades and demons we'll face. There could be over a dozen blood mages inside." Anders was lo

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e

"Alenko! Wrex! Suit up and report to the Mako." Joker's voice is loud through the bay speakers. Of course I'm already suited up - no krogan would be caught without his armor. Across the bay I see the turian heave a sigh of relief. Then he looks at me and his left mandible twitches in a smirk. He's been whining like a baby after every trip planetside:
"I never knew Shepard hated us that much."
"I thought I was going to die!"
"Thank the Spirits for my helmet it muffles the screams."
"I'm thinking about letting my shooting take a nosedive. Maybe then she'll leave me back on the Normandy."
I actually hear him chuckling as we load into the Mako. Even Alenko doesn't gripe that much and he's a human. He is using the full harness rig, though, and I see him triple checking the buckles. He even straps on his helmet with the visor sealed. I see Shepard roll her eyes at him. "The atmosphere is earth normal, Kaidan," she mutters. He responds with a nod and a brief "ma'am" an

A/N: I hope everyone is enjoying SRU and also Legend of Korra. The season finale is in just a couple days!
Also, just a reminder that following the SRU Facebook page is the easiest way to be updated on every new piece of art, work-in-progress sketches, and previews of chapters as I write them.
I know there's a lot more of you than I hear from, so I just want to take a moment to thank all of you people I know are taking the time to read. Even if you don't leave a comment, I still am grateful you're still with me. After this chapter there's fifteen more to go until the story is over!

"Have a good walk with the mutt?"
"Hey, Bolin. Yea...It was good," Korra confirmed, wandering into the parlor, still dressed in her boots and jacket.
"Yarr-Yarrp! Yarr! Grrrrr..."
"Haha," Korra looked down at the pup, still att

We all sat around the fireplace big eyes and out mouth's open. Old grandmother Willow was about to tell us a story.
"Story time!" Yelled my brother Timmy.
My three sister and two younger brothers sat waiting for grandmother Willow to begin. As for me I stood by the window with my arms across my chest staring out to sea. Slowly grandmother Willow sat down in her old oak chair and smiled at us.
"What kind of story do you want to hear tonight?"
"A love story!" Cooed my twin sister, the little one to shy to speak.
"A sea story." Timmy screamed jumping up.
I snorted and ran my hand through my hair. Being the oldest I never believed in fairy tales. Mother and father ran the town, Queen Ariel and King Eric. We lived in a big castle that was by the sea. All we have to do is run outside and the sea is our backyard. Mother loved the sea and father was the caption of the sea fleet. Naturally we'd love the sea. Everyone but my little sister Maggie loved the sea.
Mother told us, "Born to
