Liara glanced at the commander sitting anxiously at Ashley's bedside, shoulders haunched and tense, body grimly stiff. "Of coursee he hasn't," she said resignedly, sighing a little. "He's determined not to move until she does, I'm afraid."
James raised his eyebrows, surprised. "They that close?"
Liara allowed a small smile to cross her features. "What, you couldn't tell on Mars?"
"Hell, was the arguing s'posed to give it away?" He sounded skeptical.
The asari shook her head with a chuckle. "They're always bickering about something, big or small. Doesn't matter what it's about. I remember once they had a massive fight simply over who was going to drive the Mako, back when we were chasing Saren.
James grinned, amusement lighting his dark eyes. "Nah, you serious? Sounds like a story, I gotta hear this."

Characters: Garrus V. & Shepard (F)
Summary: Garrus faces the reality of serving on a human ship.
The hum of the engines hadn't bothered him before Donnelly and his crew installed the silly torque compensator (which was entirely unnecessary to begin with), into the guiding of the starboard cannon. Either there was a loose panel on the compensator, or the tech team didn't return the original panels in proper positions, and now there was a sickening resonance with one of the lower frequencies of the mass effect drive.
Garrus had demanded that the engineering crew come back and reassemble the entire thing, but Donnelly wouldn't hear of it. Literally. Garrus brought him in and instructed him what to listen to, and where to put his hand in order to feel the vibration. In the end, he even produced the frequency analysis of the entire spectrum of ac

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 a reminder 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

The echoes of gunfire drowned the battlefield. Nevada Shepard dashed to cover in a freshly exposed room from a rocket blast. The building was barely standing after the ambush from Cerberus operatives. The pillars were creaking and the walls were crumbling apart but it was her only option. Hunched under the window opening, she signaled Major Alenko and Lieutenant Vega to move forward. She pulled out the M-98 Widow and surveyed the surroundings, counting the remaining operatives.
As she commanded her squadmates to take out the three Cerberus soldiers, she noticed a bright flash through the scope. A rocket soared directly towards her location. Without any hesitation, she ducked down and covered her he

"I can't take you anywhere, can I?" He asked and she sighed, folding her arms.
"Oh, come on. You can't tell me you're not thinking the exact same thing." She said but he shook his head.
"No, I'm not. Unlike you I am happy to leave well enough alone." He said, causing her to huff a little.
"But are you really, Garrus? Are you really okay to just leave things as they are?" She asked and he sighed.
"Not okay but... She's a quarian and he's a turian. It could never work properly. They're too... different. That's why she turned him down for the human guy and why she keeps friendzoning him." He said and Shepard frowned at the familiarity of the words before she remembered that she had been the one to first say them.

Commander Shepard stretched after a recent conversation with her pilot and now just wanted to sleep. She liked Joker, but sometimes he talked too much and never got to the point. Her head was pounding. What a day, she thought. Noveria was in some ways a success, since they had received the information they needed from Matriarch Benezia. The puzzle was coming together slowly and Saren wouldn't be able to hide forever. Unfortunately, there had been no way to save the Matriarch from indoctrination.
When Benezia died Shepard saw only Liara. She saw the desperation in her eyes when her mother died. Back on the ship, Jane tried to talk with the Asari but she deflected the support. She would prefer to remember her mother as s

ME: Nail CareME: Nail Care3 years ago in Romance More Like This
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.

Liara felt well, due in large part to the forced sleep. Somehow it had been sweet of the Commander, to kidnap her to bring her into her own bed and Liara had needed it. As she went now through the messages she had received overnight, her mood improved even more. Finally she had found the track of matriarch Aethyta again. After the attempt by Cerberus to take over the Citadel, she had disappeared from Liara's radar and she had been a little worried. Even if she had met her father only recently, she did like the very unusual Asari and she would have regretted it to lose her so quickly.

His limp body fell onto the floor, and Shepard watched as his cold, steel-blue eyes went dark.

This was all too surreal; almost three years ago she had the same conversation with Saren, the rogue Turian Spectre who has become indoctrinated by the Reaper Sovereign. She was able to convince Saren of his indoctrination, but like the Illusive Man, he was far too gone.
