"Thank you. This is Primarch Victus to all ships. Some have described the liberation of Palaven as a miracle. It was nothing of the sort. It was the inevitable result of our alliance with the Krogan. Once bitter enemies, together we threw off the enemy from our sacred soil. Together we drove back those who sought to destroy us. Now we stand poised to join every sentient race in the galaxy in an attack on the Reaper's main force. Together we will go to Earth and defeat the dreaded enemy.
Earth, the home world of humanity. Once our enemy, our rival, our competitor in the galactic stage. We first met on the battlefield, then on the conference table. Over time we wearily eyed each other even as we tried to understand each other. Then Saren, a turian Spectre, one of our own, betrayed the Council and sided with the Reapers.

SW: PersuasionSenator Amidala walked through the sparsely occupied hallways of the Senate Building, head held high and features impassive. To her great relief, no one approached her with afterthought comments or lingering concerns they had regarding the Council meeting that had recently been adjourned. She was virtually absolute in her belief that any reminder of what she would immediately name one of the most infuriating debates she had ever participated in would set her on edge. All Padmé desired was to forget about the frustrating ordeal entirely.SW: Persuasion4 years ago in Romance More Like This
It had begun like any other Senate session, and had finished like most of them as well. In fact, it had been remarkably similar to at least two other she could name off the top of her head in addition to that. Perhaps it was just in her mind. But more likely it was the repetition that bothered her. The fact that their system had fallen into a continuous loop that she could

The attack on Saren's command centre had not gone well. The initial progress made by the Covenant forces seemed to serve only to infuriate Saren and caused him to redirect his strongest forces to face them. Even the prowess of the Elite's was not enough to guarantee victory.
"You two," barked 'Vadumee, "Form a rear guard, hold them back as long as you can." 'Vadumee's tone softened, "Your valour will not be forgotten and it will be an honour to join you on the Great Journey."
The two Elite's that he'd signalled to lowered their heads and bought their clenched fists to their chest in a martial salute. The two warriors then turned their back on the Covenant force and activated their swords.

Loss of ControlJagged Fel rushed to unstrap himself from his sim seat. He had just taken out the last Rogue and wanted to see who it was. It wasn't Rogue Lead, Darklghter was the second to last Rogue to get killed. Darklighter flew with an obvious style; decades of experience coupled with a hard grace. No, the last Rogue seemed fairly inexperienced. Whoever he was, he flew with an astounding amount of raw talent. What's more, he learned quickly and could make his X-wing dance. With a little more experience, he could even shoot me down. That Rogue had won Jagged's respect from flying alone, which was a difficult thing to do. No one else had managed it.Loss of Control6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Shepard walked toward the device slowly, contemplating his decision. "Is destroying the reapers the solution? How will this affect the galaxy? How will this affect Tali and I?" His mind was racing a mile a minute as he thought to himself. "Was this what Legion felt like? Yeah, you need humor at a time like this." He pulled out his Carnifex; the very one Mordin had given him as a sign of goodwill. He remembered on the ride to The Shroud how Mordin gave him it and said, "Took this from your cabin before decommissioning. Tuchanka home for Blood Pack. Might see vorcha." He said smiling. This was right. Destroying the reapers was the answer. He shot at the generator, remembering old friends. Mordin, Miranda, Jack, Thane, Garrus, Joker, and Tali. He remembered seeing her face the first time, how her beautiful, pale purple skin glimmered under the light from his cabin, and how beautiful her eyes shone. He remembered how they would just cuddle and talk of each

The red lights shot out Blue's balls simultaneously and landed next to him. In their wake, they left two rather matching creatures, both reminding Lucario of Astrid. They were standing on four legs and their bodies were of the same size, but the similarities ended there.
The one to their left had a ruffled fur as dark as the midnight sky, with circular yellow markings on its limbs. It had an odd stance, which Lucario imagined to be the four-legged equivalent of slouching. The one to their right was colored pink, with a more refined posture and finer hair. This one also seemed to have a tail which split in two at the end, both ends constantly moving in separate directions.
"Hey, look!" the Umbreon said with a boyish voice while nudging his head towards Rukario, "A shiny Lucario!"

I thought we were friends.
At least, that's what I thought.
I though she would listen to me.
What did I do?
I thought I was her friend, her companion, her buddy. I was certain that she'd at least take the time to say goodbye.
Ever since I met her, I hung around her a lot. And she wouldn't mind. She would just shrug it off. Of course, she was always annoyed, one way or another. I knew I should've been acting more mature for my age, but...I don't know.
She didn't mind.
She never minded at all.
Even when I got myself into trouble, or her into trouble, or the other Desert Scarabs into trouble, practically killing ourselves...
We'd hang around the other scarabs, with Horace, with Jenna, with Zack...we'd all be happy. Our harsh words were all jokes, and if they were honest, that was just because that was our style, to be low. We had no real leader, though the one we usually trusted most was her.

In the year 2148, mankind came across its first evidence that we were not alone in the universe. A mining team on Mars unearthed a long-lost research facility built by an ancient alien race, known as the protheans. With the wealth of technology and knowledge discovered there, humanity advanced farther and greater than ever imagined. In the years that followed, the human race stepped foot into an ever-expanding galactic society, formed by numerous other sapient species.

The voice was soft, as it always was, despite the gruff sound it had. She felt her heart beat faster, her eyes unable to focus on a single thing, everything was moving so fast. There were so many lives counting on her, so many people who looked to her for guidance, and once more, she took the place as leader on the field of battle.

The reconstruction of the Citadel races military forces continues. While the galaxy returns to economic stability the Citadel's forces remain dangerously over stretched and in danger of stagnation, both numerically as well as technologically. Simply put, the cost of maintaining the current level of military spending strains the ability of each race economic models at a time of increasing instability along the edges of Citadel Space. With these factors in mind, we look at the current status of the different military forces across Citadel space:

Sith lightning rained down on his child, resigned to his fate.
The inability to take action that had gripped him earlier found release. For a moment he looked at the body- the body, eyes wide open and glazed with death. The light that had illuminated his mechanical heart extinguished, and in a single ruthless motion his light saber found itself burred within his former master.
He did not know if it was the bionic prison that made lifeless flesh seem so light- or if it was his son's small stature, where he had undoubtedly taken after his mother. The corpse in his unfeeling arms might not have even existed.
Through the halls into his private docking bay the evacuating imperials took no notice of their solemn commander. In the ship he arranged him to be mistaken as sleeping, lest not for the lack of breath in his breast.
