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

"Easy sweetie, easy! Damn, I knew I shouldn't have let you play with Grunt when you were little." She said with a laugh.
As they embraced, she could feel her daughter tense up and tremble ever so slightly, realizing that she was sobbing softly into her shoulder. Sarah just smiled, stroking Shias crest soothingly.

The figure watched, his hand travelling over the worn wood of the boulder in front of him. Darker figures moved behind him, the light dancing with a light breeze, framing their fearful faces, long shadows falling behind them.
Muffled steps echoed on cobblestone, the whisper of dark cloth brushing rough stone walls. Puddles reflected flickering torchlight, dark shadows creeping from a maze of alleyways.
Glancing swiftly around, the figure cocked his ear as he heard the sound of clanking metal plates close by, the shining metal glinting in the torchlight. Stiffening, he drew himself behind the boulder once more, putting a

The Tales of Poppy- Royal FitPoppyland was a mess, but even more so was the castle placed in the middle of the island in the sky. Pillows were strewn about the hallway, smashed plates and vases crunched under one's feet, roses from the latter object lying limp on the ground. Tiny crystals were scattered about here and there, giving signs that they must have fallen as one was running through the palace. The uninterested clatter of a shoe echoed through the grand estate, but all else was silent.The Tales of Poppy- Royal Fit3 years ago in Settings More Like This

She stalked her prey, killed it with the utmost grace, and dined on its flesh.
Nothing was wasted.
The meat was eaten, raw and oozing, right off the bone.
The bones were gathered and packed for later use.
The pelt was washed and tied neatly around her neck.
The blood was bathed in. Its ephemeral warmth was enough to heat up cold toes.
The skull was all that was left. It was an offering.
A solemn grave marker for a burial that never happened.
She was an animal.
And she left with a silent prayer and blood stuck between her toes.

Zaeed Massani steps from the vehicle, into the crisp night air, taking deep breath, letting it fill his scarred lungs. The area was one of Ilium's less than ideal areas, home to more thieves, murderers, and mercenaries than you would find in any other part of the world. He turns to his "students" as all four exit the vehicle. Ayrene, clad in an N7 hoodie and blue jeans, puts her hands in her pockets to keep warm. Gabriel stands beside her, his eyes constantly roving around the area, taking in every little detail, alert for any threat. Cassie, wrapped up in a winter jacket, hugs herself in an attempt to warm her body, her mask fogging slightly. Taking up the rear is Urdnot Rampage, his spiky headplate prominent as he towers a good half-foot taller than the rest of the group. He looks at his instructor, "Where we heading?"
Zaeed points at a one-story building on the right, a blue and white holo-sign reading Supern

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.

It took longer than it should have for Garrus and Javik, now accompanied by Kasumi and the two drell, to rendezvous with Liara and Vega, though they all felt they had very little time to spare at the moment.
As it were, the latter group was the first to arrive, since the meeting point was practically right by the spot they had been taking cover in to begin with. Both of them raised their weapons at the dry, muffled sound of footprints in the sand nearby, rolling their eyes at each other, as well as the larger party that joined them a few moments later.

"I do not like this place," Javik remarked grimly, pausing, along with Garrus on a small ridge overlooking the mining settlement that was their destination. Both of them took care to keep behind some rocky outcrops that lined the cliffside, keeping out of sight, without either of them mentioning it; they were both soldiers, after all, trained in battle and both their instincts said the same things when it came to staying alive.
"Yes, me neither," Garrus huffed back, leaning out of their makeshift cover to look ahead through the scope of his sniper rifle. The settlement seemed awfully quiet, and he could see no sign of a

Until the contours of my fingertips
Leap onto your skin.
Every line that is seared on my hands,
(I want to merge with you)
I want to leave upon you
Because I can.
And when you wake up in the morning
When you put your high heels on
Check your make up and walk out the door
I will be on every single part of you
And they would know that you're mine.
I want to explore the small of your back
with my tongue
Just to say I did.
And when I'm asked what I have accomplished in my life
"Well for me, there's a river in my name."
And it's soaked, the will to it and the contract we'd have bonded to

A poem dedicated to Thane Krios
You came through the ceiling
With a mission in mind,
An operation to kill
Both the wicked and the not-so-kind.
After you met me
And chose to follow,
We traveled the universe
Amongst dusk and hollow.
Focused on the quest
You'd win with ease,
Bearer of a deadly disease.
By seeing your face
Foes'd run from disaster;
Pity those who tried to escape

As time went by
Amity came to an end,
Please comrade understand
To me you're more than just a friend.

There seemed to be increased activity in the chamber outside his room, Thane thought. People came and went a lot more frequently than had been usual in the time he had been here, and none of them stopped, as was part of their routine, too, at the diagnostics' consoles that stood just outside the cubicle of reinforced glass he was contained in.
Something must be going on, the assassin thought; he wondered if it was something he might be able to use to get out of this place.
A couple of armed men swept past the room, disappearing through the far door and into the tunnel beyond at some point. Heavily armed men, Cerberus insignia on their equip

That is that 'war assets' are more important then 'galactic readiness' so, consider that as a part of what get's you a respective ending too.
