Omega Chronicles -3- Open Wounds
Shepard woke up with a jerk and it took her brain a couple of seconds to remember where she was and what she was doing there. As her eyes darted around the small, dark room she spotted the familiar shape of Aria sitting on the couch, a padd in her hands, a concentrated look on her face. The human imagined that Aria kept a change of clothes in here, since she was perfectly dressed in a fresh outfit.
Shepard got up from the bed and walked over to her, picking up her uniform along the way and getting dressed herself, before sitting down next to the Asari. "Interesting read?"
"Very. Apparently some smugglers have decided to go behind my back for their business and will be wiped out within the next few hours because of that. Since I a

The Omega Chronicles -7- Shoot first, ask questions later
After looking carefully at the image in front of her eyes, Shepard shook her head. "It looks like there's already a crater on this side of the moon, Relan. Take us to the other side and let's see if we can find an unspoiled portion of the surface. I want to have a very precise idea of the power of the cannon."
The Lystheni quickly keyed in a few commands. "Yes, Commander, we will be in range in just under a minute."
Shepard had invited the young Quarian to join them on the bridge to witness the first shot of the most powerful Turian weapon that could be mounted on a ship. Tali was shifting her weight from one foot to the other incessantly, she looked really ex

She turned on her side and readjusted her pillows for what was probably the hundredth that night. As weary as she was, sleep should have been an easy task. Unfortunately her mind did not want to cooperate with what her body was demanding. Her mind wanted to think about Earth and all the horrors taking place there, about Kaiden and the angry bruises on his face, about Palaven and about Garrus. She hoped her turian friend was alive and well. Shepard uttered a dejected sigh and pulled herself off the mattress. She arched her back, stretching the sore muscles on her lithe frame that protested against the notion of having to do more work. Perhaps a stroll around the Normandy would ease her mind. Shepard stepped into her slippers and made for the elevator.
The CIC had been eerily quit even if the hour was late. The silence reminded of when the Collector's had abducted her crew. Shepard chased away the memories of the Collector base. She did not need another horrible thing to dwell on. The el

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

The loud echo tore the calmness of the Presidium like a huge fillet knife: Tali`Zorah Vas Normandy (and half of the street) turned their gazes at the source of that scream.
A young quarian managed to see a helm and a three fingered palm before she was grabbed into a strong hug that merely smashed her down.
"Tali!" The stranger yelled again, pressing her hands around quarian`s waist tighter and tighter.
"Rana?" Tali finally managed to somehow react to this unexpected hug attack, she pushed the intruder away a bit to eye her closer.
Indeed it was Rana`Vaan Vas Raya, they and Tali were best friends they grew up together and until pilgrimage were inseparable! For almost four years they haven`t seen each other and now how?

Liara's Story Chapter 1
This is fanfic, I own nothing, and know nothing. Characters in the story belong to Bioware and all that legal stuff. Though I am a big fan of all things Tali, Liara got stuck in my mind for a while. I couldn't help but think of what made a 106 year old tick, and be so naïve about some things. The answers, for me at least, was having a sheltered childhood, diving into academia to earn a doctorate (probably not easy for a race that lives that long) and burying herself in her work. Unknowingly seeking to avoid putting herself out there and not get hurt. This story that rolled around my head for two weeks until I had to write it, talks of this and eventually why she reacts the way she did when encountering Shepard on Illium later. It's weird how the story of a game can get so into your head, aint it? Get out of my head, dude!

Four streaks of blue later and they're off. Shepard walks slowly into the shallows, feeling the sand between her toes, when something shiny catches her eye. Bending down she picks up a beautiful white seashell. A memory surfaces as she rubs her fingers over the grooves. "Would have liked to run tests on the seashells."
"Mordin, I'm sorry."
"I'm not, had to be me....Someone else might have gotten it wrong."
A tear runs down Kaycee's cheek at the thought. "I miss you Mordin. You were always crazy, but I never knew a gentler soul. Wish you could have had your retirement. The kids would have loved you."
More tears begin to fall."I'm so sorry Mordin. I should have found another way."

Kaycee quickly brushes the tears away before turning to face her daughter. "I'm fine Sweetie, just remembering an old fr

When I see your smile
When I feel my heart beating for you
Its then that I know why I'm still alive
Our love might be different
People might question us more
But I know one thing for sure
I love you my beautiful brunette
I love waking up next to you
I love your body
I don't care if people think our love is wrong
Or that they don't understand us
There is more then the eye sees, my dear
Those things show our true selves
Those things show how strong we are together
Those things make me fall in love with you all over again
So what you're a girl?
So what I'm a girl?
A love like ours is beautiful
A chain created by our vows
I wouldn't want it any other way

Jacob entered the armoury to see Miranda waiting for him.
“Miranda,” he said.
“What happened during the last mission? The Commander is badly beaten and he avoided me when I tried to talk to him.”
“There were some complications.”
“One of the vorcha we fought in the plague zone became a Yellow Lantern.”
“What?” Miranda yelled.
“The Collectors gave it a yellow ring. It gave Shepard a good run for its money, but he was able to defeat him. Even took its ring.”
“He brought the ring here?”
“Where did he put it?”
“Don’t know. He’s currently in his cabin speaking with the Guardians.”
“I’ll need to contact the Illusive Man right away,” Miranda said as she rushed out of the armoury.

Purgatory, The Citadel
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!"

Late for our wedding - JohnXJane Shepard“I can’t believe we’re going to be late for our own wedding.” Jane Shepard huffed in annoyance. She blew a stray strand of her hair that had fallen free of her pony tail. She had it up today; their wedding planner had gotten a hair stylist to dress it up in this fancy bun to counter the lower cut wedding dress she had. Of course, John always thought she looked beautiful. It didn’t matter if her hair was up, down, or strewn out when she was asleep, he always found her radiant and alluring. Her emerald eyes had darkened substantially with agitation as she glowered toward him. “You know its bad form for the bride and groom to show up together John.” Jane snipped in a low growl of a voice.Late for our wedding - JohnXJane Shepard1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

Als der Leuchtturm Nebel warf;
Der Tag war schlicht, die Angst war schlichter
Und der Dunst begrenzte scharf.

Geh`n wir einsam, Hand in Hand,

Bis zum weiß betäubten Strand.

Das Dunkel verschlingt die vereinzelten Schritte
Des Mädchens und weist auf den Weg den sie kam.
Die Bäume versperren nach uralter Sitte
Die Strecke des Weges, die sie noch nicht nahm.
Sie wollen sie schützen vor finsteren Dingen,
Die tiefer verästelt im Inneren droh'n.
Es mahnen die Blätter mit Singen und Klingen,
Ihr Chorus beschwört in dem Mädchen nur Hohn.
Wo Männer erzittern und Frauen verzagen,
Erlernte das Mädchen das Fürchten noch nicht.
Die Drohungen stechen in Augen und Magen,
Wie Äste und Zweige, bis man sie zerbricht.

Mit kleidendem Käppchen von glänzendem Rot -
Von Rot, das so strahlend, so fahrig erlesen,

Shepard closed the door behind him. Damn that Miranda, what was that idea to have fun in the engine room? His back was sore but that was worth it. Those genetic improvements were way above what first met the eye and a lot met the eye. He too needed some sleep. Out of his shower he looked at the fishes, swimming aimlessly in the clear water. He looked back to the collection of ship models, that kept him occupied for a while, allowing him to get his mind off the Collectors and Reapers. Even the savior of Citadel needed time off. He sat up in his seat facing his holo-screen, next to it the photo of Ash. Shepard had been running after Collectors for almost a full year now, he did not have time to get back

I woke up again slightly confused. I recognized that I was in the Medical-bay, and I was laying down on one of the examination beds. I tried to get up and was stopped, with a gasp, by a massive pain in my stomach, and fell back. What was wrong with me? I tried to activate my Omni-tool, nothing happened. Then I realized the problem, I didn't have my Omni-tool, who takes someone's Omni-tool!? Everyone in this ship had one already! When I figured out who took it I was going to give them a piece of my mind! Of course had I remembered the predicament we were in when I lost consciousness, and the intellect of my second-in-command, I would not have spent those next 5 minutes in aggravation. I knew that Dr. Chakwas was in the room with me, and if I spoke she would probably notice me, but I was irritated and I decided I would just wait for someone to come and find me

Yimir raised the blade from the fires of the forge; it was almost ready; only one step more and the weapon would be ready to the handle and the symbol of the Skyforge.
It was something he started to develop not so long ago he started to work in the forge as something usual; Eorlund was growing old, he was an old stubborn Nord that would die with his hands on a hammer but he was clever enough to recognize that his old age was starting to take the toll.
Yimir was only acting as a substitute until another capable blacksmith came up from the companions or any other place, as Harbing, Yimir has very clear that no matters the origin, its the talent and the efficiency that would make the next forger for the Sky forge.
There was already a candidate, the strong and proud owner of the battle maiden, Adrianne, she did talk with him already about the idea of taking the place of Eourlund but Yimir rejected it, not because the woman was lacking skill; actually was the other

“Raaaaargh!” Jaina stepped forward throwing both her hands ahead at the clone, the Reave and Warp she threw at the same time lashed the decoy, throwing her, the crates, boxes and every other obstruction in the way, including the unlucky mercenaries through the hangar bay. The impact was so strong that it even shattered the Normandy`s movement, causing ship to lean a bit.
The Biotic shockwave the explosion caused chirred all across the way, causing casual electrical charges over the metal surfaces, the crates were falling on the floor scattering fire clips, spare parts and other contents all over the room.
Every person felt the foul echo as well as aftershock, the radiant of the Dark Energy caused by the explosion even lifted some crates above the floor. Liara even had to shake her head to clear the nasty cheep in the ears, Jaina`s wrath was truly fearsome! If the clone survived this hit she now felt poorly, judging by the still smoldering remains of the dead mercenaries lyi
