She turned on her side and readjusted her pillows for what was probably the hundredth that night. As weary as she was, sleep should have been an easy task. Unfortunately her mind did not want to cooperate with what her body was demanding. Her mind wanted to think about Earth and all the horrors taking place there, about Kaiden and the angry bruises on his face, about Palaven and about Garrus. She hoped her turian friend was alive and well. Shepard uttered a dejected sigh and pulled herself off the mattress. She arched her back, stretching the sore muscles on her lithe frame that protested against the notion of having to do more work. Perhaps a stroll around the Normandy would ease her mind. Shepard stepped into her slippers and made for the elevator.
The CIC had been eerily quit even if the hour was late. The silence a reminder of when the Collector's had abducted her crew. Shepard chased away the memories of the Collector base. She did not need another horrible thing to dwell on. The

She walked alone through the tall, wrought-iron gates as she had so many times before and into the lush, green reserve that bore the name Shepard's Park. The trees had grown so tall since the first time she came here. Back then they were just hastily planted saplings that only came up to her waist. Now they towered over her and shaded the people in the park from the hot afternoon sun. A light breeze stirred from the east and blew pleasantly in and around the trees rustling the leaves and branches. Liara couldn't help but smile as the cool breeze caressed her skin as she strolled towards the center of the sprawling park to the only building, the only construct on the three hundred acre lot.
Here and there people enjoyed the beautiful weather playing games, walking among the trees or having picnics as chirping birds looked down from the branches and dogs frolicked in the grass. Many took notice of her, bein

Shepard was standing in a dark forest, his legs frozen, his feet deep in mud, his arms reaching out. As the ashes fell, so did his tears. The land stretching away before him, a white spotlight shinning down below. The screams of so many pouring into his ear. On the other stretch of land, a beautiful Asari with tears pouring down her cheeks. Her form-fitted combat suit accentuated to every curve on her body, his lover Liara T'soni.
" Liara!" He would shout, but she would still cry, admonishing his cries.
"I thought you were dead Shepard It has been two years " Distant whispers echoed. They pierced just more than his heart but everything he stood for. Her image was what kept him from letting Saren finish his mission or let the Collectors allow the Reapers.
Shepard opened his eyes, hearing the voice of Doctor Amanda Kenson over the loudspeaker, blaring into his ear. I

A fix-fic based on my take of the Reapers motivations and the ending:
I pressed the button on the console, but nothing happened. Hackett screamed in my ear. I had nothing for him except painful grunts. The universe turned black.
"Shepard, wake up," said a child like voice.
"Where am I?" I asked.
A projection of some sort stood before me.
It looked like the kid in Vancouver, the one playing with the fighter model, the one that died .
"Shepard, wake up," it repeat.
"Who are you, what are you?"
"I am a remnant, a fraction," it said.
"I don't " pain ripped away my strength, "I don't have time for games; show yourself, whatever you are."
The projection changed into an alien form, with large triple set of dark eyes, similar to the Keepers.
"I am The Last. There is little time, the Reapers know you are here," it said.
Hackett called over the radio, "The Reapers are disengaging from the battle and are heading for the Citadel. Whatever you did spooked

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.
Admiral Ashley Williams, clad in her dress blues, stands alongside Major James Vega along with a small platoon of Alliance men and women. High Chief Wrex, clad in his ceremonial armor, stands with his wife

"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 because it would help him close the door on a section of his life that tormented him every day. She knew how Garrus felt because she had done the same thing with the things of her past. After Akuze, Shepard was haunted by all the things she could have done differently. She found ways to close those doors, and now she thought that

"Well what do we have here?" said Shepard as she walked into Liara's room and saw her laying on her bed face down, a glass hanging in a hand and a liquor bottle in the other. She had gotten up to get some snack since she couldn't sleep, and she thought about checking on Liara, now she was so very glad she had taken that decision.
"Shepard!!! so glad you could join us!!!" said Liara excited, trying to get up the bed and staggering a lot in the process
"Us?" replied Shepard confused and amused by Liara's behavior, she looked so funny
"Yeah!! me... and my new friend" she answered grinning showing Shepard the liquor bottle
"I think your new friend has made you a little drunk" Shepard said sarcastically, as she stood there, with her arms crossed, watching Liara trying to walk towards her
"I'm not drunk!

After taking down Sidonis, Garrus wanted to go and check on Shepard. He wasn't blind, and though she was a fair distance away she could see her struggling on the ground. But he was smarter than that. As much as he might have been worried about her physical state he knew that going to the scene of the crime was not a smart thing to do. Folding his sniper rifle and holstering it on his back, he made his way back to the shuttle to make his hasty retreat to the Normandy. He knew Shepard would make her way back eventually; if she didn't, he could pick her up in the med-bay. He winced at the thought, though. She's strong she couldn't be that badly hurt.
As he sat down in the shuttle, a confused multi-toned voice sounded from behind him. "Officer Vakarian, where is the Commander?"
Garrus felt his throat dry instantly as he saw who was sitting in the back seat through the rear-view mirror. He had completely forgotten Thane had accompanied the two of them to watch the sh

Jaina took off her helmet and threw it on the sand: she moved closer, feeling a breezy salty ocean wind fluffing her long black hair and hearing water sloshing under her armored boots.

This takes place a few weeks after the Collector Base.
Shepard eased her body into the leather chair in front of her desk, trying to make as little noise as possible in her silent quarters. She didn't have the heart to wake the Turian slumbering under the covers of her bed. Just because she couldn't sleep didn't mean he had to be disturbed. They had gotten together for the past few nights in a row now. A small smile formed on her face as she recalled how Garrus had embraced her tightly after the elimination of the Collector base. She had nearly fallen to her death at that base, but he had saved her life by pulling her up into the Normandy at the last minute. The Commander shook her head to get her thoughts away from the feeling she had had at that t

It was dark, pitch black, she couldn't even see her hand in front of her face, 'where am I?' she thought. Then as suddenly as the thought left her mind a white light appeared in the distance, with no place else to go she ran towards it while it became bigger and bigger until it engulfed her and then she saw...

Shock and confusion took over Shepard's face "what? No, Kaidan!! I'm sorry..." she said painfully, trying to reach out to him, but then the explosion came and everything went white as she closed her eyes protecting them from the flash. When she opened them, a massive tall stru

"I've got a signal! It's weak, but it's definitely there." Tali said, fretting over her Omni-tool as she and the others who had been with Shepard from the start began their desperate search for him. As they move through the rubble left over from the Reapers attacks, the pulsing on Tali's Omni-tool quickens. "We're getting closer."
Hold on my love, we're coming.
"How the hell did Shepard get back from the Citadel in the first place?" Wrex said after lifting up half of a broken wall off the ground.

"I tried, Shepard." The Illusive Man said, as he placed the barrel of his pistol to his head and pulled the trigger.
His limp body fell onto the floor, and Shepard watched as his cold, steel-blue eyes went dark.
" Shepard!...-an you me?" Admiral Hackett's voice filled her head.
"This is Shepard, what is it Admiral?" She said into her radio, her free hand putting pressure on her wound. This was all too surreal; almost three years ago she had the same conversation with Saren, the rogue Turian Spectre who has become indoctrinated by the Reaper Sovereign. She was able to convince Saren of his indoctrination, but like the Illusive Man, he was far too gone.

Aboard the Normandy, it was night and all the lights and sounds in the almost empty ship seemed muffled. As EDI could pretty much handle everything alone, they needed only a few crew members at this time. Jane Shepard loved to go through her ship at this time. Every night she visited the departments and decks, enjoyed the quiet hum until she was exhausted so that her mind had to surrender to her body and she finally could sleep.
How do you sleep, when the survival of all depended on you? Shepard knew the answer. Rarely, restless and full of terrible nightmares. She waited as long as she could, often beyond the limits of exhaustion and then only because it was necessary, because otherwise it would jeo

After their last stay on the Citadel, the Normandy was on the way to a job on a small Cerberus base, where they experimented with Reapertech. But it did not look good for them. They had to leave Liara behind to hack into the security system and to turn off the big cannon, but now James and Shepard were cut off from her. Shepard saw how Liara tried to keep the attackers at bay with singularities, but there were just too many and she did not take all of them down.
Shepard got her sniper rifle out, and she targeted and killed a few enemies. Then she activated her tactical cloak. Not a moment too soon. As she almost reached the Asari, she saw the red dot of a phantomīs weapon appear

In addition to the physical changes, an unknown means of propulsion has been implanted in their form, allowing them to fly through the water with relative ease. The Hanar's body glows various shades of blue or green depending on its purpose, for which there are two that we've seen.

A small tug at his leg snaps him back to reality. Looking down, he spies little Syren looking up at him hesitantly, a teddy bear clutched tightly in one arm. A warm smile spreads across his face.

Syren blushes furiously and looks down at her feet. Wrex chuckles to himself. (She is so unlike her father) "It's alright, I don't bite."
Syren looks back up at the old warrior and quietly asks, "Charge?" Wrex throws back his head and roars with laughter. "Spoken like a true Shepard." With one fluid motion he reaches down and scoops her up and onto his shoulders.
