Commander Shepard did not just look half dead, she was almost dead. Worse yet, the badly needed ambulance hadn't arrived.
No matter how blood-smeared, dirty, scratched, wounded, or, in short, a horrible sight the Commander was, all that mattered to Samantha was to be right beside Shepard. The person she cared so much for and loved so deeply.
Even a hulking James Vega couldn't stop the young woman. Samantha just shoved him away and rushed to the fallen Commander.
In her trembling arms, Samantha cradled Shepard's burnt and bloody body. Her armor was half-destroyed and the underlying fabric was partly burnt into the skin. Skin that was so pale, like a corpse. "Must be the heavy blood loss," Vega had told her.
Amidst the stillness of the smoldering ruins of London around them, the low breathing of the Commander was all that could be heard. If she hadn't moved her head towards Samantha to lock green eyes on to tear-stained brown ones, Samantha woul

What the Hell were we thinking going after the Reapers? What made us think we would be able to stop them when countless civilizations before ours fell?
Before London, I found myself thinking this more and more. But then I also started thinking of everything we've accomplished. When Saren turned his back on the Council, they just couldn't see it. They just couldn't believe that one of their own would turn against them. I'd call it human nature but
We opened their eyes. We made them see that Saren was a traitor. It wasn't easy, but through each other's help and support, we proved him a threat to the Galaxy. We stopped him. Not only that, we killed a Reaper. Together, we put an end to Saren's treachery, and destroyed Sovereign. It wasn't without sacrifice, but we sowed t

Jesse closed her eyes, her jaw grinding as she tried to keep her temper from exploding at Kaidan. This wasn’t the time or place to argue with the Lieutenant regarding his skills. Her eyes said it all to him and he knew she was angry. “Can I depend on you to use your abilities to the fullest, Lieutenant Alenko?”
She noted the slight narrowing of his eyes as he heard her call him by the formal title. “Yes, ma’am.”
“Then do so.” She started to turn away and rejoin Ashley so they could check the area for any survivors when Kaidan called.

The chorus of "Yes, sir's" that followed were of little comfort to the admiral. There were too many dead, too many that had to be tagged. The morgues throughout the city of London were going to overflow with the dead. If they weren't careful, disease would spread through the city like the Black Plague that had happened centuries before.
He didn't know how Shepard had managed to make it inside The Citadel-it was a miracle, a miracle that spared the galaxy. The dead Reapers around London served as a morale boost to the citizens of Earth, but also acted as a testament to the courage of the soldiers who fought in the terrible war. The Reapers were gone; the galaxy was safe.

How did I get here? Commander Shepard thought for the tenth time in five hours. Though he could take a cab from the Embassy to the Docking Bay, Shepard was more interested in stretching his legs and working off some of the adrenaline from earlier.
The human Spectre fidgeted with the zipper on his leather jacket, resisting the urge to tap his foot in time to the lively beat that played in the elevator. The view whipping by the elevator as it traveled the length of the Citadel ward arm sobered Shepard. This was no place for tapping feet. Smoke still billowed from damaged vehicles and broken apartment windows while med teams and C-Sec officers tried to make sense of the body count.
Fucking Cerberus, Shepard growled inwardly as a particularly gruesome scene reflected in the window. A turian woman cradled the head of her child in her lap, her mandibles spread in a cry of agony as a human medic tried to pry her away. Similar scenes of other species flickered by. Elcor. Volus. A

"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.
John noticing this asked, "Is there something wrong? You look like you've seen a ghost."
Jane having heard his statement snapped her mind back into reality. "Sorry, it's just you look like someone I know. Don't worry, it's alright," she said trying to sound reassuring.

Shepard’s neck was aching for the time spent peering over the dozens of documents loaded on the terminal in the Captain’s cabin. It was certainly not a new duty for the Commander, but back in the days of the Normandy SR-1 Pressly used to sort out almost all the paperwork. And when Cerberus was running the show, Miranda had whatever paperwork was required by the Illusive Man under her own control. After that, the Reapers had not left any time for paperwork…
But after their victory, the peacetime fleet apparently returned to care more for paperwork than for combat readiness. Of course, Shepard knew better than complaining about peacetime. Not after the galaxy dodged at the very last moment the Reaper menace… The memory of the Reapers trading hammer blows with the fleets over Earth and the grotesquely ravaged humans, turians or batarians turned into killing machines was still too close to find the regulations of the peacetime fleet boring.

Takanuva had never had a good relationship with the night. As far back as he could remembertraveling around as Takua, the Chroniclerhe had been wary of the dark, always making sure he had lightstones handy for his trips through black as coal caves and times when the twin moons werent at their brightest. Since he had defeated Makuta, however, he had found himself being even more wary of the night, seeing things that werent there, sweeping shadows and piercing eyes.
It was all wrong. It wasnt supposed to be that way. He was the Toa of Light for Mata Nuis sake! He could banish darkness with the flick of a wrist, turn menacing corners into sunlit happiness with a simple glance.
