*Note: Chapter 1 and 2 are more like an extended prologue than anything. I cover a lot of ground in the first two chapters. The story slows down after that. The first two chapters basically cover little aspects that you need to know as the story progesses. Please don't let the first two chapter deter you from reading on. Thank you!
"I'm proud of you kid," said Anderson.
"Just remember you were a human before you were a Spectre, you represent all of humanity with your actions," said Udina.
"I won't let you down," said Shepard confidently.
Anderson stepping down and giving Shepard the Normandy? It didn't feel right to her. Pushing papers wasn't his thing but he wanted to give her every chance to succeed in this mission. She knew how much this meant to him and she wasn't going to let

As the heartless cyborg mercenary-crewed rogue scavenger vessel "Calibos" pulled away from the research vessel "Venture Nebula," the Crimson Conservative peered out a nearby porthole and silently wished them well. Once more checking her twin Desert Eagle handguns, Connie knew that she only had three clips left per handgun, as well as her two combat knives. Still, her augmented strength and speed had proven to be more than a match for any of the cyborg crewmen that Connie had bumped into so far. 'Wish I knew how many more clankers were onboard this barge. Three down so far; since I'm guessing on this one, best bet would be on a single boss cyborg and a couple of man-machines that he has as his right hands to enforce his command. Okay, then: let's
A Look of IceA Look of Ice12 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Golden gaze fixed upon you. Time broken, hourglass smashed. Transfixed connections between the eyes of your mind and her beauty.
She moves not a muscle, her mind as still as the air. You remain solid; your knees on the floor soak up the moisture of heat. Seconds are only apparent by the constant pumping of blood in your ears. She doesn't blink, her ebony nose resists twitching, no wind rustles her jet fur. She is a sculpture. A sculpture of mystery.
It is impossible to see beyond the rings of colour, unimaginable what lies beyond the physical nature of her. Her very existence promotes secrecy, independence, power.
Her teeth are bared, glinting beneath a saliva coating. You see her jaws, coiled and ready to snap shut quicker than you can detect. There is no rain, no wind, no thunder to soften the silence - Only the thin rasp of air that trickles between the eggshell spikes in her mouth. You study her eyes without shifting your own; she has a mahogany scar on the left – a memory of batt

Three minutes later, Nick set out for the bus. She always set her things out the night before, just in case she ran late the next morning. Most days, like today, it paid off. As she looked a few feet ahead of her, she saw that the bus had arrived. Seconds later it drove away, leaving her behind. The bus drivers in her area weren't known for their patience. She'd make it to school before the bus, but it was a pain to walk.
When Nick reached her homeroom, she found that the usual jerks were already there. The room consisted of jocks and cheerleaders. After Nick checked in, she would leave. Most kids leaving a homeroom went to breakfast. Nick, however, went to another homeroom. Most of her friends were in the same homeroom, and she joined them every morning. T

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e

When, in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.

Opening your eyes you see, nothing. Trying to move, not enough room. Gasping for air now you franticly start to writhe and thrash, the ceiling opens up giving you a face-full of dirt. Wincing you can see only a blinding light and feel its warm glow, your need for air is quenched.
Spending a moment taking this in vision comes into focus. You can see, youre in a shallow hole in what appears to be a desert waste. Looking around you see corrugated panels penning you in on all sides, theres the sound of a chain clanking hysterically accompanied by snarling and growls. Scratching your head you cant tell if youre seeing the culprit correctly.

Dismissing the squiggly beast for now you turn your attention to the chuckling. There are two gigantic figures shadowed by the sun, leaning on the fencing, which seem to have buckled under their weight.
Taking a step forward in the hot sand you squint to examine the figures more closely. T

Under the Evening MoonThe sun sets far beneath the horizonUnder the Evening Moon5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And so she awakens
A faery of great beauty divine
Clad in tones of the luna moth.
Her people fly about
All in search for nightmares in which to consume
Lurking in the darkness of one child's mind
Was a monster classified as a colossus.
The faery people backed away from the beast
Their queen stepped forward
Armed only with her magic and her sword
Watching the monster move like a sloth.
It gave off a ferocious roar
And set off in motion
He dragged his massive sword behind
It's expression reflecting his life being loveless.
Under the evening moon
Under the skies great minds rest
The battle between dreams and nightmares
Will decide who is best.
The colossus swung his sword with ease
Making the earth shake and crumble
The faery queen, however
A protective spell was what she cast.
She returned with an arrow to the heart
But the beast wasn't finished just yet
The nightmare bent his head down low
And stared deep into the queen's soul.
