My fist slammed the shot glass down after I downed its contents in one gulp. The liquid burned my throat going down but left a warm feeling in the pit of my stomach. A nod at the bartender and I found my glass filled again with the alcohol. My older brother Grant was sitting in the seat to the right of me; he was fidgeting with his phone and trying to drink at the same time. This proved to be an impossible task, especially in his intoxicated state. He only ended up spilling his shot all over himself, to the amusement of his girlfriend. I shook my head at how sloppy he was tonight. It was hard to believe we were even related. Then again, I ha

"We should've just gotten a DVD..." Altair groaned. He nuzzled closer to Malik as he muted the TV. For a while they blankly watched the screen. A group of very stylish looking teenagers featured in an ad for CREED sweaters. At the end the brand's motto 'Everything is permitted.' flashed across the screen.
"Guess what..." Malik said, looking away from the TV and at Altair next to him. " 'Everything is permitted' is actually the second half of the last words of the first Hashishin leader: 'Laa shay'a waqi'un moutlaq

John Shepard was approaching the Normandy when he was approached by his captain.
"Captain Anderson," he said with a salute. "Is there something you need?"
"At ease soldier, just wanted to chat," answered Anderson. John relaxed and immediately took notice of the women who was walking up behind him. Anderson took notice of his expression and said "Shepard, meet Jane Hiller. She's an alliance soldier like you and will be joining us on this mission."
"Hello, it's a pleasure to meet you in person Shepard," she said while putting her hand out, albeit a little shaky.

Kojak entered the JSF command room where his squad was gathered with Alliance general La Pointe. La Pointe was of French decent and served by Hackett's side. He wore a blue Navy dress uniform with medals and ribbons covering it. He had a scar tracing down his right cheek. His face was hardened and his hair was grey. He was a respectable general, now he is leading this unofficial team of heroes.

"How long before we reach the Citadel?"
[Approximately 1.5 hours.]
She sniffed and rested her chin on her knees contemplating what to do.
"Thank you EDI."

A small appreciative smile crossed her lips, "I'll be fine EDI. I just need some time to myself, that's all."

Shepard rounded the corner and headed towards Liara's office, carefully avoiding the Main Battery. She wasn't in the mood to have that inevitable conversation. She picked up her pace a little bit praying the Battery doors didn't open. They didn't. She breathed an audible sigh of relief as she walked through Liara's door and felt the doors quickly slide shut behind her.
"Shepard you can't avoid him forever you know." Liara said without looking up from her terminal.
Crap. How did she know? Was it that obvious?
"What are you talking about Liara?" she asked, trying to pawn off the best nonchalant voice she could muster

Hawke stared around the large cavern with a pleased expression as he wiped the blood from his blade. He glanced around at the rest of his companions as they moved around the cavern.

To Hell and BackShepard looked out the window in the Starboard Observatory at the endless space. Samara had left her quarters long enough for Shepard to steal a moment in the room, alone. Throughout the time she had spent on the new Normandy, she had felt an aching for her old crew and routines. When she didn't have Cerberus to answer to, and when the threat was just a man. Fighting what she knew must be an enormous army, with no real way of taking them down, especially by herself, seemed an insurmountable challenge at this point. The only way she could think that the Reapers would be brought down was through the combined efforts of all the sentient races inTo Hell and Back2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

On a whim she decided to stop in and see Liara before going to the CIC. She felt that she owed her friend an apology for bolting earlier. Forming the apology in her head as she walked toward the door, she pressed key combination that unlocked it. She opened her mouth to speak as her eyes scanned the room for her friend, growing wide as they locked in on the Turian standing by the window.
The carefully thought out apology left her head blindsided by the sight of her 2 closest friends apparently in the middle of something she definitely didn't want to know anything about. She turned on her heel and walked away

The doors of Liara's office slid open again.
Still in her chair facing the console, Liara sighed, "Sera, I ."
He cleared his throat, not wanting her to say anything further, making sure she knew it wasn't Shepard.
Liara gasped, quickly turning around in her chair. "Garrus! I I'm sorry. I thought "
"Yes, I know what you thought Liara," he said roughly as he slowly settled into the chair that just held Shepard.
"What can I do for you Garrus?" she said pleasantly.
He wasn't exactly sure what he wanted from Liara but he knew he wanted answers. Shepard hurrying so quickly from Liara's office alarmed him.
At Last, a Reply... Kaidan found himself thankful that it was dark by the time he had reached his apartment. Granted, it was only midday, but the atmosphere had clouded over in anticipation for a storm, leaving little light that managed to break through the clouds. The lighting seemed appropriate, given his melancholy mood, he thought to himself as he made his way through his apartment. He hadn't bothered clicking on any of the lights when he came home- the natural light coming from the window didn't quite fill the apartment, but it was enough to see where he was going.

Garrus and his dad don't really like the idea of Chellick being with Solana. For Garrus it might be understandable (because he knows Chell's faults since they worked together), but Chellick's actually a nice guy so why doesn't Dad like him?
I'm thinking there was a misunderstanding of some sort that made Papa think Chellick wasn't fit to date his little girl.

With his father's work at C-Sec, he wasn't able to make it home very often.

Liara T'Soni-Shepard exits her skycar into the pouring rain, the gunmetal-grey skies blocking out the sun. She wears a simple black dress and carries a bouquet of white flowers from Thessia. The grieving doctor doesn't bother with an umbrella, instead letting the rain wash over her skin, mixing with her tears. She begins her slow walk towards the large group of people crowded underneath a wide awning, when suddenly a hand grips her shoulder reassuringly, and the rain stops. Looking over her shoulder, she finds Garrus holding an umbrella over her, his expression unreadable. He nods to her, his grip speaking volumes as he guides her towards the crowd. As they near the group, Liara notices that nearly everyone has shown up today.

entwine me with your thorns,
for the scars you leave on my skin
give more honor than battle-wounds.
Let my hands carry you
from the shadows of steel towers
into the hot sunshine,
so your petals may grow deep in color,
your leaves and stems more supple,
your roots firmly gripping the earth
where love plants you.
Blue Rose of Illium,
may I die with your name on my lips,
and fall close to where you stand
so my blood may enrich your soil,
and my bones wall you
against any who would uproot you
without knowing your true worth.

Once Nate wakes from his drugged state, the first person he chooses to chase after is Talbot. Talbot gives him a very good reason why. Spoilers for UC3.
Policemen on patrol had Talbot passing a hand over the line of his vest. The pistol tucked so inelegantly into his waistband wasn't meant to fire bullets but it would draw unwanted attention. The supply of darts in his pockets would be even harder to explain. Best not to ruffle up the natives in this miserable little backwater of a country.
Not while the hunt was on.
