"That's easy for you to say, party boy. I've been a little busy fighting the galaxy's deadliest enemies. There's not a lot of time to dance when you're zooming around space. Not much shore leave. And anyway, dancing isn't important. I can shoot the head off a Geth from 200 yards away. So what if I don't have any rhythm?" He laughed and rose from the chair where he had been watching her.
"Everyone knows what you can do with a gun, Lola. And that's all well and good. But you need to relax, belleza. You can't run around killing things all the time. Sometimes a person has to blow off some steam, or just forget about the chaos for a while. Besides, you're the one who asked me to teach you to dance, remember?" She sighed and nodded her head.

Jane doubted that he would ever forget what Jane had said to him when reapers were attacking and they contacted her. Air quoting "Ah, yes the reapers!" had been too big temptation for her and she still made air quote motions when ever she saw the councilor.
"Is this information correct?" Asari councilor asks and lifts her eyes to Jane's.
"It's correct." Jane shrugs. No one knew from where she got her information and they would never find that out. She wished that the meeting would end so she could return to Liara in their home at Thessia. She regretted now that she'd let Liara talk her out o

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

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

She carefully hops off her bed, wrapping her blanket around her shoulders from the cold, and picks up her teddy bear, Athena. Syren shuffles over to the curtains and peeks around them, standing on tiptoe to see over the window sill. A small gasp escapes from her, followed by a quiet giggle.

Shepard struggled to get out of bed the morning after the match with the turian Spectre, Nihlus Kyrik. The restless night she toiled through barely aided in her recuperation. Her body ached in mysterious places as she staggered towards the door. Her head continued to faintly pound against the confines of her skull, recovering from its blunt impact with the boxing arena floor. The scarce trace of adrenaline lingered within her veins from his quick maneuver. As much as she deemed it an unfair fight, Maree wanted nothing more than a rematch simply to reawaken her favorite desire.
Knowing she couldn't allow her confrontation with the privileged guest divert her from scheduled agenda, the Commander crawled out of her quarters and wandered towards the mess hall. The soldiers who witnessed her fight came up to d

With frightened inhale Jaina woke up. The feeling she couldn`t get used to still was the inability to open her eyes when she awakened – the soft bandages wouldn`t let her. Doctors ordered her severely not to take them off while she was sleeping, and even during daily activities if possible. They explained it with lots of scientific and medical words a proper sane person should not know about, so Jaina was satisfied with short version: “It`s good for you!”

Admiral Hackett just finished debriefing me, when I heard the doors open behind me. My first reflex was to take out my gun from holster, as I knew nobody ever entered my cabin without ringing first. I resisted that urge, as I didn't want to appear on edge, seeing as how there would be alarms all over ship if there were indeed intruders onboard.
As I turned around, I saw Miranda with a determined look on her face, coming towards me.
"What....?" I tried to ask her what was she doing here, when she cut me off.
"I will not let you go alone on a mission in battarian space." She said, stopping right in front of me, her arms crossed bellow her breasts.
I frowned at her "How do you...? You know what? Never mind, I don't think I want to know." I turned my back to her and went to get my armor. "But I have a mission I need to prepare for, so if you would min

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.

Shepard sighed heavily as every step she took felt harder to make. She trudged through the base; intent on saying her goodbyes to her beloved crew. She walked around in a daze, looking at the destruction of the base area alone, until her eyes fell upon a familiar face.
"Hey Commander," Vega solemnly said as Shepard approached him.
"What? No Lola?" she teased with the biggest smile she could muster.
"Huh?…Yeah, sorry," he replied as he looked down at the ground.
"Are you okay?"
"I don't know what I thought I'd feel coming back to Earth," Vega said, "I was ready to fight - ready to die if I had to. But seeing everything like this…"
Shepard swallowed down her own concerns and fears as she braced Vega's arm; knowing that his resolve needed to be strengthened in that moment.

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 equipment. Thane frowned briefly. Cerberus. Of course.
It made even less sense, though, he mused; Cerberus had been, in part, the reason he had died in the first place. Why would they bring him back from the dead, let alone cure him?
The answer was even more obvious than the question. Shepard. It all had to come back to her. The Illusive Man wanted to get

By Quarian help, some larger battle fleets were renovated into starships to cope with a sustainable residency. While most have left the Sol System, some choose to resettle themselves on Earth or closer clusters like Tuchanka to help the locals rebuild their homeworld. This caused a shift in galactic powers for a moment, until the Galactic Alliance was established.
