Little Syren Shepard opens her eyes sleepily, gently rubbing the sleep from them. She glances around her room, the pale orange light of the sunrise peaking through her curtains. 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. White, as far as the eye can see, the entire countryside covered in a thick blanket of snow. Realizing that it's Christmas morning, Syren quietly shuffles out of her bedroom, moving one door down on the right, "Aya? You awake?"
Her big sister is sitting in her bed, reading a holo-comic, clad in red sweatpants and sweatshirt. She looks up at Syren, "Well, good morning and merry christmas Sy."
"Mewwy Chwistmas Aya."
"Anyone else awake yet?"
"I dunno. But it snowed outside."

Aria's comm terminal flashes to life in the early hours of the morning. *beep beep beep* Aria groans as she tosses the covers off and tumbles, ungracefully out of bed. She strolls across the vast quarters (still only clad in a pair of black panties) and grabs a shirt off the back of the couch, pulling it on quickly before answering the terminal. Her Batarian enforcer, Bray, appears on the console. Aria's tone drips with venom, "This better be good Bray."
"Uh...right. We have an issue down here on the floor of the club."
Aria's hand goes to her temple, the beginnings of a migraine starting to creep into her head. Her voice causes Bray to wince visibly, "Unless the club's going up in flames, I really don't care. Handle it. It's what I pay you for, isn't it?"
"Um....I think you're going to wanna see this, boss."
"I swear if this is some drunken Elcor causing a fuss again.....blood will be spilled."

She stood there, at the console, probably running some diagnostics, oblivious to her surroundings. I leaned on the doorway, looking at her, up and down. Man! She has such a perfect body. Not short, but not too tall. Curves in all the right places. Hair as black as coal and eyes as blue as the sky over Earth. And that smile. I could watch her smile all day long, and it still wouldn't be enough.
Small smile danced on my lips as I quietly started walking towards her. She was so focused on her work, she didn't hear me approach.
I slid my arms around her slim waist, pulling her a little towards me. I inhaled her scent, as I kissed her neck. She was startled at first, trying to turn around and face the one who violated her personal space. But she recognized me soon enough, and she relaxed

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

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

I looked up at the falling debris. This was turning into a habit, me blowing up large structures, while still in them.
"Move!" I yelled as I started towards the exit, dodging some of the smaller metal scraps that were falling from the ceiling.
Then the platform moved; Reaper-Human Larva made one last attempt to kill me and my team, before it fell into the oblivion, by tipping the platform off balance. That made me stagger. I had to grab the edge so I wouldnt slide down to my death.
But then I heard a scream that froze my blood. I saw Miranda, behind me, trying to grab something to hold on, clawing at the smooth surface with no success, while sliding down the platform. Fear filled me as I pushed myself off towards her and the abyss that awaited below us. I wasnt afraid about my own safety.
No, what terrified me was something happening to he

I collapsed on the floor, as the vision overwhelmed me. Miranda was at my side instantly. That's why neither she nor I have noticed that Kenson pointed the gun at my head. "I cannot let you stop the Arrival, Commander." The room was suddenly filled with guards.
Damn. Reapers got to her. I looked at Miranda and gave her a very small nod. She shot up, towards the good doctor, trying to disarm her, breaking her wrist in process.
Kenson screamed for the guards to attack us, while she limped out, as both Miranda and I dove for cover.
"There is too many of them!" Miranda screamed, as she slammed few guards with her biotic powers. She is right. As soon as we take out one, two more fill in.
"Pyro on the left!" I yelled when I saw one guard with a flame thrower approaching Miranda. She took him out with Warp.
"Two more to go!" As soon as she said that, a Y

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

Music. Where for the love of Reaper is it coming from? And its classical music. Who on this warship loves classical music? Kelly, Doc and…. Miranda. But, damn, they are all on the same level and I cant deduce from whose quarters its coming from. I'm gonna see Doc first, coz if she is listening to the music, maybe she has some drinks too.
I made my way towards the Med Bay. God, I think she sleeps there, she never leaves Med Bay. Windows' are transparent, but I cant see her. That's odd.
Not Doc, then. Next stop, Kelly's quarters.
Hmm, the sound is getting weaker, which means Im going the wrong way.
Not Kelly, either. That leaves Miranda.
Shit. I still haven't talked with her about the… Engine Room. Maybe now would be a good time, seeing how we don't have anything to do now that Collectors are defeated, and Reapers have yet to make contac

"Joker, lose this channel," Shepard ordered.
The link died. The Illusive Man sat down on his chair and turned his chair around to stare at the blue sun. He took a puff of his cigarette and let it rest in the ash tray. He sneered. "No one betrays me and gets away with it, Shepard."
* * * * *
Several days passed and Shepard has not heard a word about Cerberus. Maybe they decided not to do anything, he thought to himself. Shepard shook the thought. Cerberus was not going to let them get away like that. They were planning retribution.
Something struck Shepard as odd that day. Most of the ship's crew tried to avoid looking him in the eyes. Like they were embarassed. Shepard reached the cockpit to check up on Joker. "How goes progress to our destination?"
Joker looked up at Shepard and also gave him the same look as the rest of the crew. "Goooooood..."

“No… no… Fire… No! NO!”
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!”
Shepard was lying in her bed in the clinic, her head rested on the soft pillows, the thick fuzzy blanket covered her thin body, the air condition softly tickled her bare hands and shoulders with chilly cool waves.
Lying here was just magnificent, feeling yourself rested, calm, peaceful – with no engine hums, no nasty headaches and fever from the precision jumps or annoying Joker with his stupid jests… Even as a soldier back in her youth for Jaina i

Kaycee drapes her arm over her daughter's shoulders. She can scarcely believe how quickly she's grown up. Just seems like yesterday that Ayrene was barely up to her knees, now a tall, slender, beautiful woman stands beside her. She gives her an affectionate squeeze, "So what do you think sweetie? I told you that I would take you dancing for your eighteenth birthday. This place good enough?"
Ayrene's eyes take in the flashing lights, the pounding music, the dancing patrons, and she smiles. "You really are the coolest dad ever. Mom would completely freak if she knew you brought me here."
Kaycee imagines the fury that would come down on her if her wife knew where they were. She shudders at the thought, "Don't remind me Aya. Now, shall we have some fun?"
She guides Ayrene over to the bar, raising a hand in greeting to the Turian bartender. "Raker! Long time no see!"

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.
"I know it's hard, but this is only temporary," she said as she locked eyes with him. "We will win this. So stay focused and don't let them shake your resolve."

"Yeah, but it would have been worth it." Kendall said cupping Logan's face as his thumb caressed Logan's cheek bone.
"You wouldn't have been saying that when we were on the plane back to Minnesota." Logan pointed out leaning into Kendall's touch as he always did.
"Maybe not, but I wasn't going to let Mercedes have you." Kendall said smiling as he pressed his forehead against Logan's.
"I let her have you." Logan said not meeting Kendall's eyes.

Post Mass Effect Technology Era and the Formation of Galactic Alliance
Stretching a time from late 2186 to 2250, the Great Migration was commonly recognized as the period of time when the starfleets came to aid Earth against the Reapers return to their homeworld by FTL or other conventional means of commuting. 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.
The Galactic Alliance, established in year 2193, is an inter-stellar organization between the former Citadel Council, the Systems Alliance, and the Perseus Consortium. The three major players in the field combined their resources to host aiding programs and agencies

"Go, go…GO!" Shepard yelled as the dreadnought blew up round her and her team. Gerrel decided that while Shepard and her team were still on the Dreadnought it was a good time to blow it to thousands of burning shards of metal. Pathways were blocked by fallen chunks of ship and Shepard was finding it difficult to breathe as panic slowly started to rise within her body. As she looked round the metal hull and shining pillars, her vision split to the time the Normandy exploded around her as she went to save Joker. But this time her focus was on Garrus and Tali, they had to get out even if she didn't. Passing through the doors leading to the hanger, Shepard opened up her communication link with the fleet.
"Shepard to fleet, Shepard to fleet. Hold fire!" She yelled as another explosion rocked the dreadnought. Her legs screamed in pain from injuries she had already gained. Then she felt

Sera walked through the airlock and glanced at Joker who had his head resting heavily in his hand, looking as miserable as ever. EDI was sitting calmly in the co-pilot’s seat, methodically analyzing the ship’s systems. It was apparent he hadn’t noticed her arrival and an irresistibly mischievous thought curled her lips into a sly grin. Treading carefully toward the cockpit, taking care not to make any obvious noise, Sera came up behind Joker and stifled a laugh when she heard him snore lightly. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw EDI turn and open her mouth to speak. She put a finger to her lips, signaling the AI to hold off on what was undoubtedly a report of one kind or another. EDI blinked in reply, confused by her commanding officer’s sudden gesture.

Chakwas smiled as she watched Garrus walked past the med-bay window with Shepard slung over his shoulder. She was happy to see the Commander happy, truly happy, after so long. She remembered as she watched Shepard rise through the ranks of the Alliance that even though Shepard wore a smile, there was a dark sadness in her eyes that seem to shadow that smile. For a while Chakwas didn't think that anything would take away that shadow but as she observed Shepard's interaction with Garrus aboard the SR1 all those years ago, Chakwas started to see a light in Shepard's eyes. To see them now, as people who loved each other, was enough to warm her old bones.

A young woman was lying awake in the early hours of the morning. She sat up in her bed, her bare arms folded over one another. Her nighttime garb was a simple short-sleeved shirt and a pair of black shorts. She was twenty-five years old, living in the chaotic fray of a metropolis. Earth was noisy compared to most other places she had lived during her life. She was supposedly born there, though. But, she was reflecting on her past, of where she had been before.
Her parents had taken her to live with them in the small farming colony of Mindoir far out in space. It was quiet, small, and serene. She had been nervous at first, a little girl having to live an entirely new planet where e
