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.

"Javik, I'm going now."
Liara was dressed for a night out of the house. Her outfit was simple. It did not show excess skin, contrary to the popular style of the day, but the wine colored cloth fit snugly against her body. Javik stood defiantly in the middle of the room, his hand balled into a fist to keep it from reaching out and running along the curve of her hip.
He would treat this like any other battle. And he refused to show weakness.
"This is a pointless activity," he said firmly.
In his own cycle, people would back down when he used that voice. But Liara only fought back harder. She stood just out of his reach, placing her own hands on her hips. "Shepard and Tali will be here for only a few more days, and Tali needs to relax. This is her first night out without her family since the baby came." Her voice was calm and quiet, using the same tone she used when explaining something to their children.
Javik stole a quick glance behind him at the two girls playing happily tog
No More Fear - Episode 3'So, that's the Citadel.' Valerie thought as the shuttle flew smoothly through the Presidium. Fire was blazing all over the place, and smoke filled the air. The shuttle entered the HQ that was overwhelmed by Cerberus troops. They were fighting hard, and the odds seemed to be in their favor. That quickly changed once Shepard and her squad interfered. The Commandos were quickly eliminated, and Shepard ran to a person who was bleeding on the ground.No More Fear - Episode 33 years ago in Drama More Like This

Tali's Hangover Tali laughs drunkenly, swaying in her chair like Joker's making the Normandy do barrel rolls again. Her hand is sliding across the table in a dozen different directions and sending brandy in a dozen more. The only thing still dry is herself by some strange miracle. Throw her bright pink straw into the mix, and it is definitely a sight to behold. “I'm having a drink with my boyfriend,” she slurs. “My human boyfriend. My father would have hated you.”Tali's Hangover3 years ago in Romance More Like This
“Here's to him, then,” I say and raise up an imaginary glass in salute.
She raises her drink high above her head. “And to Miranda.”
I can't help but laugh as she tries to finish another sentence and get the emergency induction port/straw into her helmet. Neither want to cooperate in the slightest. Her words become a muddled mess of syllables that no one can decode, and the straw runs from her clutching fingers. It's almost like watching a three-year-old try to learn how to write whi

Commander Shepard stretched after a recent conversation with her pilot and now just wanted to sleep. She liked Joker, but sometimes he talked too much and never got to the point. Her head was pounding. What a day, she thought. Noveria was in some ways a success, since they had received the information they needed from Matriarch Benezia. The puzzle was coming together slowly and Saren wouldn't be able to hide forever. Unfortunately, there had been no way to save the Matriarch from indoctrination.
When Benezia died Shepard saw only Liara. She saw the desperation in her eyes when her mother died. Back on the ship, Jane tried to talk with the Asari but she deflected the support. She would prefer to remember her mother as s

And then there was Comms Specialist Samantha Traynor. Hanging out in the corner in sweat pants and a t-shirt like a bloody idiot who’d just rolled out of bed. Probably because she had just rolled out of bed, mostly due to a dangling promise of an epic brunch with her girlfriend.

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
