As always Samara flawlessly guessed her Commander was entering the observation chamber.
Jaina smiled and wagged her head.
"Someday you should teach me how to do that!"
Samara turned to her with a smile, she as usual was sitting on the floor with her legs crossed and meditating. She ceased her Biotic aura and motioned Commander to come closer.
"I do not use my abilities for such minor things, Shepard."
As Jaina approached her and took a seat near the Justicar, Samara continued.
"I simply recognize you by steps."
"Really?" Jaina sat near her and hugged her knees to her breast; it was the most comfortable position on this cold and hard floor.
"Your gait can not be confused: it is so assured, so determined...it feels for certain that you own this place. Of all people aboard only you show such confidence. "The Justicar looked at her and smi

"General, Capitan Cross has arrived" a Blackwatch Lieutenant said as he saluted, before moving to one side to let the man pass; Cross was a tall man and wrapped in thick black body armour, his face was worn and aged and he had streaks of grey in his hair, he looked to be in about his late thirties to early forties.
"Ah, Capitan come in" He said as the lieutenant closed the door behind the two, leaving them alone in the dim room "You should know that I wouldn't call you here if it wasn't an emergency, but we have a situation that I need you to take care of"
"Oh?" Cross enquired with a raised eyebrow; he had read the file about this particular case on the way into New York, about Mercer, but he didn't know the whole story, as of yet, or even what Randell wanted to be done, though he could probably guess.

My siblings and I love to have fun
To do stupid things and often run.
My siblings and I, we always want more.
One summer's day
A break was suggested
But a brother protested.
He wants rather to play.
So one of the others
Who's not quite as lame.
Apparently knows a really cool game.
There's a tree that we'll climb
And not one of us can stop
'Till all four kids have reached the top.
What a wonderful use of our time.
I head up first.
My brothers close behind.
For a moment the tree seems kind.
But the challenge proves cruel
And I silently pray
That the old branches shall not give way
But someone's a fool.
I soon turn around.
A branch let us down.
I wear a small frown.
There is a child lifeless on the ground.
A moment sooner and it would have been me.
But I don't really care.
Cause its always been there.
The danger that beckons three.

He tore up my soul
How blind could I be?
I just smiled and played my silent role
How could have I know he was just using me?
Darkness pulls me in, making my cry
Will someone save me?
I just want to be saved and promise with out a lie
Because I'm love's escapee
My absence is never new
Will someone notice I'm gone?
The next will have to be sweet and true
Because my last line has been drawn
Smart, handsome and funny
Not much to ask out of one guy
For he will turn my dark sky sunny
And clear the clouds from my blue, blue sky

Lost Primarchs: PrologeIt was a dark, cold night. A tall figure stood his ground, wind whipping around him. His red cape snapped in the wind, but he stood there like a statue, out in the middle of an open plan. Something was coming, and he could feel it. Long ago, a man came to his planet, asking his parents if they will let the man take their son to become a Jedi. They said no, for they too were Force users, and sent them man away from their world. They had taught him the Jedi power of foresight, and he had seen this day come.Lost Primarchs: Prologe5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He looked up into the sky; black T-shaped visor cut into a golden mask glinted in the star moonlight. The sky was beautifully clear, stars shining, and the plant's three moons were out, giving him clear view of the whole plain that was laid out in front of him. He waited, then saw it.
A star fell from a dark tear in the sky. The man watched as it plummet to the ground, not moving until it had landed. The star kept falling, coming closer to the ground, and closer to the man. The man st

Shepard, Linda, Tali, and the Arbiter left the Normandy and approached a man who was near the docks.
"Fai Dan saw your ship. He wants you to see him right away" the man told Shepard urgently
"We will see him. Are you hurt?"
"No. Fai Dan should be beyond the stairs" the man said
That was all the man was able to say before he got thrown five feet in the air by a geth rocket. Shepard ordered his squad into cover. There was already a geth present, and several more were on their way.
"Linda, take out the ones further from us. Arbiter, Tali, you two help me take out the ones closer to us" Shepard ordered
Three green acknowledgement lights winked on, and everyone moved into action. Tali overloaded a geth trooper's shields, and the Arbiter fired off some bullets with his Carbine. A second geth trooper started firing at them, forcing them back into cover. Tali saw that the geth trooper didn't have shields, so she got to work on hacking the geth trooper.

What can one feel awakening in the unknown room not remebering anything, with terrible headache and wearing little more than loincloth...? Party was good? I doubt that and one particular krogan would agree completely
With heavy sigh containing pain, anger, irritation and simply bad mood all in equal part Wrex opened his eyes. Fist two feelings he was lying on the cold metallic floor face down, and his arms were tied with some cuffs Other feelings, like pain in all body parts that he could feel, of being in such uncomfortable position for too long and dizzy came few minutes later.

The Council representative appeared on the large screen in the Situation Room, over Mission Control. "Hello, Commander. We require your assistance with a unique matter. We expect that you will give it the same level of attention as you would for any other project objective."
The Commander nodded silently. He had been expecting some interference from the Council during the project, but not so soon after it had begun. It had only been two weeks since first contact had been so violently made.

The warm water showered her face as she ran her hands through her damp hair. Her arms crossed over her chest, her hands tightly clenching her bare shoulders. Taking a few steps forward, she wedged her body into the corner against the cold metal walls. The messaging, methodical flow of the water down her lightly pale back felt quite soothing. She took a few deep breaths to steady herself, and she slowly closed her eyes, letting the sound of the falling water fill her ears. The knot in her stomach was beginning to fade away, and her throat didn't feel as dry as it had when first arriving back at the Normandy.

District 9: The Arc GunAAAHHHhhh! SPLAT!District 9: The Arc Gun5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Sound familiar? Probably resembles what someone would say when being chased by an alien with an arc gun, otherwise know as the "lightning bolt" gun. Well, how does it work?
Judging from the design, it is pretty straight forward. Let's be realistic though, the gun probably wouldn't be albe to fire a thing in reality (or for amusement, let's say this universe). Actually, come to think of it, I'll give credit where it is due, and say the aliens found a nifty way to make it work.
Anyways, the gun works pretty simple. Operationally, when you pull the trigger, you hear a charging-type noise, and then a bolt of electricity shoots out, blowing up the victim. From what I can tell, that charging is an EM field forming almost and electromagnetic tunnel to the target. This EM field provides a barrier to keep the bolt from shooting everywhere, and it forms a medium for it to travel through.

Sheppard put the data pad she was reading on the table next to the prothean artifact and smiled, showing that seeing him was always a pleasure. But unfortunately this didn`t help, Varakian was as grim as a gravestone!

by Uwe Lammler
We live in tribes, where strife and envy
From the edge of history cries out for fratricide
We dream in forests with dense foliage,
In the fog and below the silence of the Rauhnacht,
We reign in legends, sung from far away,
Noone penetrates in the glow of our Sun Fire
And lately became a name our taint and reward
But even our becoming was always passion.
The wall of the Romans cut through our land,
The West and the South supported the enemy
And bought from outside with good profit
Amber and various household items made of tin,
But even the tamed in the Roman state,
Thought about renunciation and vile treachery,
Wakes up in the Cherusci the old teutonic spirit,
Varus will become the victim of the German passion.
Who doesn´t avoid horror, should be warned,
Death won´t be longer a suffering, the death will be passion,
Who stays close to the source, who gives birth to life,
Laughs at the fools who adorn shamefully themselves,

You only think it will take away your fears
While it might prove to do so
Those monsters will never leave
But I'll always be here with a little jar
