Commander Shepard glanced back to the now shut door behind her, not without some apprehension, though she made sure it wasn't visible. The man who had negotiated with her stood by her side, giving her an encouraging, if shifty smile, his comrades moving away to remove their helmets and their weapons as well.
Shepard noticed the neat weapon racks lining the small antechamber that stood just past the entrance to the mining complex; the men seemed to arrange their gear with practiced ease, she thought, which was probably the case. Her escort joined them briefly, setting his own helmet and rifle in one of the spaces before returning to her.

Still sat on the briefing room floor, Shepard reasoned that she would have to leave at some point. Unfortunately. She had gotten quite comfortable. And may have fallen asleep for a few moments.
Ah well, she thought, I guess I'll go get ready then. She had mixed feelings. On the one hand, she didn't want to see Thane, let alone spend time pretending to be his girlfriend. Not right now, it was too embarrassing. She didn't want to make a fool of herself. But, on the other hand, she couldn't wait. Hell, if she couldn't be his real girlfriend, why not just enjoy playing pretend?
But what should I wear? She thought as she dawdled to

"Save your lives?"Shepard asked carefully, raising a puzzled eyebrow.
The blonde sitting comfortably across from her nodded, seemingly indifferently tucking a lock of her long hair behind her ear. "You are in the business of saving people, Commander; not asking you to do something all that extraordinary".
Shepard scoffed. "I am really in no mood for games and with every passing moment, what patience I have mustered is dissipating rapidly," she said sharply, stealing a glance towards the new dark monitors across the room. Seeing Thane had cracked her wall of strict self control, not to mention her determination to keep a cool

I emerged out of the shower, clean at last. Kaidan was dressed and busy admiring my collection of model ships.

"You're in my shot. Move to the side."
Jane Shepard winced at the menace in Garrus' voice. She stood in the middle of the wards on the Citadel, in front of a turian who Garrus had every reason to hate. She was in her full gear, weapons and all, but the man in front of her was in civilian clothes, completely unarmed, just like most of the people in the wards. Usually she felt fine as she walked through the Citadel; hell, even on the Presidium she didn't feel out of place.
But today was different. When Garrus asked her to help him kill Sidonis, she agreed bec

Shepard crouched behind one wall, glancing out into the adjoining hallway for any sign of enemies. Her knees ached from the constant need for cover, but it was a necessity with the constant barrage of bullets.
Behind her, Garrus and Mordin moved with enough efficiently to make her think she was alone in the deserted hospital. All this trouble for Mordin's former assistant, but she couldn't say no to a life

The small, uninhabited planet seemed even more desolate, inhospitable and dismal than the digital images they had seen-and those had seemed pretty bleak, to be sure, but they did no justice to the actual locale. Rocky crevasses of rock so dark red it almost seemed black-until one squinted their eyes and looked a bit closer-alternated with flat expanses of baked orange-tinged earth, dotted with the occasional darker-shaded dunes where-presumably- thresher maws burrowed in and out of the ground. All that was overshadowed by a bloody red, sunless sky that rendered the landscape into an even grimmer, almost ominous red haze of a light

Garrus left Liara's office more frustrated than when he went in. He understood her predicament but that didn't mean that he had to like it far from it but there was nothing he could do about it either. He had kept his word to Shepard and never told a soul about their time together, so he couldn't very well start now.
Shit. Now what?
He could feel the tension throbbing within him. He needed to do something to get rid of it or ..not good. He headed toward the elevator. Perhaps some sim sparring would help. It had before and it had been a while since he had done any no need to really, war was a

Crossing her arms, she leaned back into her seat. Just a cargo hold bench, nothing fancy. There were two, one on either side of the chamber. The Salarian sat opposite her, showing signs of increasing uneasiness. He looked around nervously, but more often to the right than to the left.
She raised her eyes to meet his and smiled.
"Anything wrong?" - she asked, sounding quite friendly.

Light had only begun creeping through her window shades which meant there was plenty of time to get ready. Last night was quite a night, she thought to herself, recollecting her efforts to drink herself into a blissfully ignorant stupor. No hangover, she thought again. She got up and made a few steps to the refrigerator, taking out a small bottle of orange juice and seating herself at the counter, beginning to sip on her drink. She lived in a modest, yet spacious apartment. Given the fact she lived on Omega, she was quite happy with her l

The sharp, authoritative tone made everyone fall quiet, most of them turning to glance over at the source of it guiltily. The SS Normandy crew members all muttered together for a few short moments.

He chuckled again, this time shaking his head to himself, letting Rayne know she almost had him where she wanted him. "Because, Commander Demanding, you'd end up hurting me. Or worse, yourself. Besides, you'd look f

Standing at the large window in the Port Observation Deck, he looked outside as the lights on the Citadel dimmed, ringing in the artificial night for the residential quarters, and was unable to wipe the grin off his face.

Garrus used the wall to stand himself up, still feeling the sting of Shepard's punch to his scarred cheek.

Garrus exited the elevator on the Combat Information Center, his guns and a bag slung over his back. He had gone down to the main battery and gathered the lone things he had brought with him on the ship before heading up to the CIC, ready to exit the ship for what Garrus thought was for good. As he walked past Kelly she attempted to say hello, but his blatant ignorance to her presence caused her to quiet herself as he walked past. No one else even bothered to try and greet him as he walked past.
