"Why has this unit displeased the creators? What did we do wrong?" Strapped down tightly to a chair you would see in a torture chamber, a geth sit their. The room was a dark and eerie place. There was only one light that seemed to be shineing brightly on the clueless geth. No other life forms but it had been laid inside this dark chamber. "Creator - Zar' Fannu? This unit requests assistance." A door slid open slowly on the right side of the geth's small room. A male quarian with long hair put up in a ponytail, strong arms and a firm posture stood before the geth. His face was smeared with hate and distrust, his bright, glowing eyes glared at the Ai as he paced back and forth staring at the geth. "Creator - Gel' Narah, help us." "I'm sorry, geth, but you and your fellows have shown ...unpresidented signs of self awarness. You all must be terminated for the sak

Shepard sighed, slowly turning from the reaper to face her crew. Of course, the Reapers wouldn't understand, nor even try to see their point of view. It was all too clear to her now. Tali'zorah and Cyn'thea both jogged up to Shepard's side, smiling at her. Legion stood from afar, watching them.
"Shepard! That was amazing...the way you stood up to that reaper." Cyn'thea said as she gave her Commander a friendly hug.
"They'll never understand. I'd get more progress with the Council or a brick wall at this point." She replied, returning the hug and giving one to Tali as well before taking a step back.
"We can confirm that the geth are no longer being directed by the Old Machine." Legion said as he looked at his omni-tool, then towards the Commander. "We are free."
Shepard smiled softly at Legion, nodding before placing a finger towards her earpiece. It was Admiral Han'Gerrel from the Heavy Fleet. "You did it, Shepard! The geth fl

At some point she realized she was breathing.
Sensations came slowly after that. That muffled thudding...her heartbeat, footsteps, or guns in the distance? She tried to open her eyes, but the blackness was absolute. A finger twitched. Her lips - everything was numb - her lips parted and she tried to speak, but everything was muffled, she couldn't move, she couldn't move! She tried to yell and only managed to produce a choked whimper.
A sudden burst of noise and activity, a pinch on her arm, and everything spiraled back into oblivion.
There was a beeping. It was annoying. How long had it been going on?
She slowly pulled herself out of unconsciousness. It was a huge effort to open her eyes, almost an unbearable task to focus them. The stark white and bright light of the room made her headache -- because by god, she had a massive headache --- about ten times worse instantly. An involuntary moan escaped her, which then made her realize just how absolutely foul her mouth tasted. Where

Even through the dizziness that threatened to topple me over in my seat, I could tell that last grenade had hit home. I hadn't heard the dreaded clink-clink until it was too late and Garrus was yelling my name, and then the world went black for a few seconds. By the time I staggered to my feet, EDI declared the area clear and was rerouting the cannons on her own. Relieved the mission was complete, I would've fallen back to the floor if Garrus hadn't caught me. The medi-gel was cool and comforting against my neck, but still this fuzzy feeling remained.
And that couldn't be good, considering the amount of worry in Garrus' eyes as he lifted and carried me to the shuttle.
Most importantly, I was tired. Weariness seeped into my bones, my body heavy and my eyelids heavier. I could rest on the way back to the Normandy, gather my strength as I closed my eyes-
"Stay with me, Shepard."
Rarely was I irritated to hear Garrus' lilting voice. I

She was still quite young, gorgeous figure and a pretty face with facepainting that would make her interesting for the scum of the Earth. Nevertheless, Aria tapped her foot angrily because this Asari represented a problem.
"Where did you find her?" Aria asked coldly The Batarian straightened, proud of his catch but obviously clueless as to what he actually had acquired.
"In the Hades Gamma cluster. She was alone on a remote world. We'd though we'd offer her our help." The slavers laughed at their witless attempt at humour. Aria placer her hand on her forehead, pac

I had just set the bottle of rum I'd snuck from Dr. Chakwas' private stash on my desk when the door whirred open. I didn't have to turn to recognize the loud footfall.
"I'd tease you about walking in unannounced," I said listlessly, "but I'm too tired."
"Aren't we all." Garrus sat heavily on the edge of the bed, face hidden by his propped hands. I abandoned the alcohol temporarily and collapsed beside him.
"You look like how I feel." I petted the side of his fringe idly as I slumped against his shoulder.
"And I feel how you look," he replied with a hint of amusement. He dropped his hands, clutching at mine. "Shepard, I know you had your reasons for what you decided..."
From anyone else, I would've been moved to anger by that statement. As it was, I just felt a fresh wave of sorrow. "But?"
"There is no 'but'," he said gently, tilting his head to lean it against mine. "I would like to stop
Two Turians and a KeeperGarrus and Chellick were busy reviewing footage at their desks into the late hours of the evening. They were working on a case together involving suspicious cargo that was being run through the Citadel. All ships docking were legitimate which meant that when they finally pinpointed the ship, either the entire crew was "dirty" or they had an extremely shady crew member that was very good at hiding his illegal activities. In any case, they had to pinpoint what ship, or ships, the cargo was coming from and this was proving to be quite the task. They reviewed hundreds of tapes from the course of a few months, watching every ship dock, watching every crate that exited, checking the docking records to make sure everything matched up. So far, they had turned up nothing.Two Turians and a Keeper3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I can't look at any more footage," sighed Chellick. "It's late; let's just pick this back up tomorrow."

The war is over. The Reapers are dead. Now Shepard and Garrus have a chance to think about the future they want with their son.)
"I", Shepard thought, "hate sitting still". Especially when it was something that was being forced on her by outside circumstances. Yet, her she was, sitting cross legged on the floor of the apartment , back against the couch, with a baby sleeping sprawled across her legs. She sighed and looked down at her son. It really wasn't fair to blame her current mood on Aetius. Not like he was really forcing her to stay still. She could probably move him if she was careful; she'd done it before when he was napping and she needed to do something.
It was just that right now she didn't see the point of disturbing him even with all her restless energy. She really didn't have anything else to do. At least, nothing important

When you go out on your Pilgrimage, you aren't supposed to come back untouched. You're supposed to learn about the rest of the world to benefit your people. Trying to find out more about the geth was what I thought would be the best way to do that.
My father had a picture of a house that he'd show me when I was younger. He'd say, "this is where we'll live, Tali'Zorah. We won't have to worry about suit environments then."
So, I fight because I love my father, and because through him, I've come to be able to love the rest of the galaxy too. And because I love the picture of that house enough to want it to be more than a piece of paper.

She blinked in surprise and lifted a hand. "Hi, Wrex. Something you need?"
Wrex entered her room, striding slowly, powerful muscles twitching under his clothing, crest reflecting the dim of the lights. For once he wasn't wearing his armor, and didn't appear to be carrying any weapons. He looked strangely vulnerable, well, he would have if he was anything but a Krogan. He didn't bother to reply to her question, and paused next to her desk as the doors to her room slid closed with a vacant beep.
There was silence as the two stared at each other. The dark of Shepards room was a relief from the

Commander Shepard was used to long days. As she rubbed the back of her neck on her way toward the elevator she reflected that people seemed to think she was invulnerable. When you were the savior of the galaxy several times over, people tended to forget that you needed little things like food and rest. It was as if they expected you to be able to live on heroism alone.
At least she finally had some time to herself. After chasing a group of slavers down, coming back to find the Alliance brass was waiting to speak to her over the comm, and arguing with them for another hour, she was able to end her shift. She was going to go back to her cabin, finally get a hot shower, then fall into bed.

I swiped a hand over my face in mock frustration before I glanced up at the soldier who had entered. "Mr. Vega, I hadn't thought you would have such a short term memory. I am no longer a commander."
"Not legally, ma'am," James said smugly as I walked over. "Yet. Admiral Anderson wants to see you. I'm to take you to his office. I think it's urgent."
I frowned but nodded consent; he caught my look just before he turned and fell into step behind me. James meant well, and I admired his obvious faith in me, but reminding me of my title- former title- most every day was, in fact, becoming annoying.

"Do you think you'll ever have children, Shepard?"
Shepard choked on her drink at Tali's unexpected, yet innocent question. It had been a week since the Battle of the Citadel, and much to her protest she had been dragged to Earth to attend a series of dinners and ceremonies in her honor. Receiving a medal of honor had been incredible, and having her crew with her, Kaidan in particular, made it all the more special. The cost of having that honor was having to attend the endless events, though she enjoyed having a break from the misadventures onboard the Normandy, yet there were moments that she had considered making an escape and blast back off into the stars instead of hearing another long speech, though logic deemed such an idea horrifically stupid.
Returning to Tali's question, Shepard shifted uncomfortable, feeling the stiffnes

On her first night together with Garrus, Shepard had been mildly concerned about the talons that she knew turians possessed. She trusted Garrus with all of her heart and knew that he never intentionally harm her, but there was that instinctual distrust of sharp claws near her softer human flesh. Of course she had been thinking of entirely different things by the time that evening reached the stage where his gloves came off, and then she didn't' have the luxury to think about minor details until after they had blow the Collector base to bits.
Being under house arrest had given her more than enough time to think, and Garrus was one of the happy memories she had she to stave on the crushing boredom. One of the questions those memories brought up was if turian anatomy charts and Alliance descriptions of turian talons as 'vicious natural weapons' were overly exaggerated or if Garrus had blunted his just for her.
