"Tali Are you awake?"
"Go away glowworm!" *cough* The quarian engineer sniffed and turned around, wrapping herself tighter into the thick wool blanket, her entire body was shaking from the fever, her head felt like a humming bee-hive, her throat was ticking like she swallowed a fiberglass.
Tag smiled warmly, shaking his head he knew Tali did not mean it, she simply was sick, and her irritation was normal. He came closer to the double bed she was lying in and took a seat on the edge, gently caressing his lover`s side through the thick blankets. Quarian smiled under the helm, it was nice to feel care of a loved and loving man! Shepard only left when she was sleeping and to speak with Mordin, except that he was always near Tali when she was not feeling well.

The Citadel was a complete mess. Buildings still had holes in them. The blood of the fallen still covered the walls. But people still lived on as though nothing had happened a few weeks ago, they still went to shop at the local stores, they still went to see the new Blasto movie, and they still gossiped about John Shepard's relationship status.
Maybe he's into Asari, thought some.
Maybe he likes only humans, hoped others.
But they were all wrong. He did not enjoy any of those as mates. No he had preferred the most unbelievable of choices. He had preferred Quarians. Specifically Tali Zorah vas Normandy.
Unfortunately no one but a few of the crew of the Normandy SR2 knew about this relationship. The rest of the universe was completely oblivious. They still tried to get with the Universe's Hero.

Shepard laugh at Tali's confused reaction. "I'm asking you if you want to go out with me and enjoy the Citadel as my girlfriend?"
It was a soon as those words left his mouth that Tali had finally realized what he was asking. John Shepard was asking to spend more time with her. In Public. With her.
Suddenly Tali's emotions exploded into utter bliss. She hugged Shepard even tighter than before and began to cry her tears of happiness and replied "Yes! A thousand times yes Shepard!"
"Well that's good because if you had said no I might not have survived the trauma of rejection" he replied with a chuckle. This resulted in a chuckle from her lips as well, replacing the tears of happ

With a little 'hiss', Commander Shepard removed the young Quarians facemask. The fact that he was the very first human to ever see how a Quarian looked like under the tinted facemask of a Quarian environmental suit wasn't on his mind. Just seconds before, the young Quarian Tali'Zorah was babbling nervously, but the moment when their eyes both met no one said a single word. What he saw was so beautiful that he asked the gods how they could have cursed this Quarian to ever withhold her face from the rest of the world. 'Oh my...' were the only thoughts he could muster. Looking into each other's eyes for the first time without any obstructions felt like an eternity to both of them.
It could have been seconds, or minutes, even hours but when Tali saw that warming smile on her Commanders face, all of her fears, her nervousness and doubts vanished in a moment's instant. It felt like a burden, as heavy as the universe fell from her shoulders. 'Keelah.

SHEPARD/TALI GOODBYE SCENE
Contains spoliers for those who have not completed the game.
The sounds of gunfire, the smell of the air on fire, the sight of destruction in every pebble of the earth, it was a nightmare like the one he'd been having for months since leaving Earth. It was the same dream every night--or at least, every night he could actually sleep. In his dreams Earth was a wasteland filled with the charred remains of only trees, a few benches, and the wispy shadows of people, yet every time he approached those shadows, only whispers greeted; they were the whispers of his friends, like Mordin Solus claiming continually someone else may have gotten it wrong, or Thane's last words from his death bed, or even Kaiden's lingering questions.
In his sleep everything that he kept from showing in his eyes in the presence of his crew came crushing down on him. Ashley's death all those years ago; it was his

"We take our chances. All forces, focus on Harbinger! That monster lives not one more day!"
"Orbital bombardment! If we're lucky, we'll put a dent in it before it realizes we're trying to kill it!"
All was quiet on the field. Not a sound could be heard and not a reaper was left in Earth's skies. Admiral Tali'Zorah watched from the dark, burning streets of London as Harbinger fled from the orbital bombardment, as the might of the galaxy made one last, desperate attempt to stop the reapers. She understood the motivation: Hammer Team was stopped in their dash to reach the Citadel... the team was decimated.
What petrified Tali the most was that the man she loved, Commander Joshua Shepard, was at the tip of the team's spear and she watched as he was seemingly incinerated by that damnable machine. When the dust faded and her heart

And according to Tali's tool, she's down on the lower courtyard. Perfect.Tali and Shepard's Citadel Date3 years ago in Romance More Like This
With all of that set, I give myself a once over. Jacket's clean and presentable, white shirt underneath is sparkling in contrast, jeans are comfortable, and the shoes match. One of the few times I've ever really cared about what I'm wearing. Tali's worth it, though. I sigh in preparation and walk down to the mini-mall.
She's easy to spot when I climb down, the only Quarian in sight. She's preoccupied with some upgrade or another on the terminal as I sneak up behind her. "Guess who." I whisper, wrapping a hug around her stomach.
She jumps a little in surprise, but relaxes when she realizes it's me. "I was wondering how long

"What is it now, Joker?" his voice was gruff as he addressed the helmsman, as he already had several time-wasting reports to make to Miranda and the Illusive Man, not to mention the modifications he had to finish to both his armor and the Normandy's before their final mission.
"Uh, Tali just went to have a...'chat' with Legion," he replied hastily, humor an undertone in his voice. Shepard groaned, running a hand through his hair, not even wanting to imagine what could have gone wrong to set kind, loving Tali off. "You'd better get down to the AI Core," Nodding his head even though he knew Joker couldn't see, he set off at a quick pace towards the bickering geth and quarian, hoping he could keep both parties from injury.

"Don't forget to introduce yourself to EDI, the ship's new artificial intelligence."
Tali looked over her shoulder at the Cerberus agent, contemplating what she just heard. Introduce yourself to the Cerberus A.I. that controls the ship and everything on it. Including even Shepard, maybe. She couldn't even bring herself to look at the Commander. She turned and the door sealed shut behind her, leaving her in a short deserted corridor.
The cold, sterile hall held no memories for her. When Shepard had said they were returning to the Normandy, she knew it wasn't going to be the same vessel, but she had assumed it would at least be an Alliance ship instead of a Cerberus privateer. She was alone, her marine escort all but wiped out, the lone survivor light years away on his way home where she should have gone. Instead, she was trapped on an enemy starship with the one man she trusted above all else their willing ally. She cursed her foolishness at agreeing to come aboard at all when in

"Commander," Edi said contacting Shepard through his omni-tool, "we are approaching the Citadel."
"Thanks Edi," Shepard said as he looked at Tali's face.
"Shepard there something else," Edi said.
"What's that, Edi?" Shepard asked.
"The Quarian Admiralty board wants to talk to you and Tali about the recent news you dropped on them," Edi said.
"Keelah," Tali said drowsily, her eyes still closed, "I knew there was going to be repercussions from telling them that about us, but this is the fifth time they have called."
"Shall we ignore them a bit longer?" Shepard asked.
"No we better see them this time," Tali said as she sat up and put her mask back on.

A Proposal to Tali I press my forehead against hers, the warmth and gentle smile of her face so much more inviting than the pillow. My right hand slides along her temple and though her hair. Beneath the sheets, her leg is draped over mine, hooking behind and pulling it between hers. The only skin still hidden behind the old barrier of her suit covers from her breasts to the middle of her thighs, almost like a one-piece bathing suit. She has her left hand resting just behind my jaw, with her thumb rubbing my shaved side burn line.A Proposal to Tali3 years ago in Romance More Like This

Frigate to Mindoir: two months after the battle for Earth.
The vessel was overcrowded for one surprisingly so large. Men and women, civilian and servicemen of different species and walks of life filled up every seat on the New Orleans. Despite the conditions, no one could be happier than they were right now. For the first time in what seemed like years, people felt safe. The most deadly and devastating enemy the galaxy has seen was now running scared, suffering their most crucial defeat above the human homeworld two months ago.
The human planet, Mindoir, was confirmed to be rid of reaper forces less than three weeks ago and Alliance officials thought now was as good a time as any to begin rebuilding and recolonization of the planet. Humans among many other species filled the New Orleans, looking to start a new life. Where a certain species decided t

There is a lot of speculation here, especially in the third timeline, but this is how it makes sense to me, based on character development and interpersonal relationships which lead to what we see in the three Terminator movies and TSCC.Terminator timeline analysis7 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
