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

Tali's Hangover Tali laughs drunkenly, swaying in her chair like Joker's making the Normandy do barrel rolls again. Her hand is sliding across the table in a dozen different directions and sending brandy in a dozen more. The only thing still dry is herself by some strange miracle. Throw her bright pink straw into the mix, and it is definitely a sight to behold. “I'm having a drink with my boyfriend,” she slurs. “My human boyfriend. My father would have hated you.”Tali's Hangover3 years ago in Romance More Like This
“Here's to him, then,” I say and raise up an imaginary glass in salute.
She raises her drink high above her head. “And to Miranda.”
I can't help but laugh as she tries to finish another sentence and get the emergency induction port/straw into her helmet. Neither want to cooperate in the slightest. Her words become a muddled mess of syllables that no one can decode, and the straw runs from her clutching fingers. It's almost like watching a three-year-old try to learn how to write whi

"You can kill a Reaper. You came back from the dead. You went through a relay that no one ever has, successfully I might add. You took out the collector base and none of your team was killed. Yet you are nervous about being married to the woman you love? I don't know about you but that seems a little messed up to me." Garrus said. Coiln couldn't stop his hands from shaking.
"I'm not nervous, I'm happy." Colin argued.
"You are not helping." Garrus smiled.
"Want to know something funny?" Colin asked trying to distract himself.
"Everything good that's happened to me has happened to me on the Normandy." Garrus thought about it for a moment.
"I think I can say the same thing. Alright let's get you ready, it's almost time to head down to the Cargo Hold."

Sat on the edge of a box in the shipping bay, Tali'Zorah nar Rayya sat awaiting the arrival of her auntie Raans shuttle, her mind racing between excitement to disappointment and then back again; she looked down at her hands, soon she wouldn't be able to see them; for today was the day she would get her suit.
Tali'Zorah nar Rayya was a quarian, and due to their low immune systems quarian children were required to spend the first ten-twelve years of their lives in a 'bubble', the bubbles were required to be fully flexible, since children were placed into them moments after birth and spent most of their time within them with the exception of bathing. Thus they needed to allow the wearer to move freely and interact with other people and objects. Upon reaching their teenage years young quarians were given customised enviro-suits, in which they would spend their entire adult lives.

"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.

Azure, Nos Astra, Illium, A few days after the destruction of the Alpha Relay…
As much as he loved the Normandy, his ship, Shepard longed for a quite moment in the sun, without bullets buzzing overhead or explosions tearing down the scenery. A quite moment to feel the wind brush against his skin as it did back on Mindoir, before the batarians came.
He hated them for a longest time. They were the slavers that killed his family and destroyed his home. He joined the Alliance to get some payback and found it in another quite place, Elysium. And like Elysium, the people on the aircars that crossed the Illium sky,commuting to and from work, or sitting down to dinner somewhere on those lofty spires that formed Nos Astra skyline, and even those watching the news about Aratoht didn't know what was coming.

After a week of working on the communications network, Liara decided to visit her long time friend Shepard in the hospital. Every day as she worked on repairing the network she could sense Shepard's strength coming back. His glow in her mind always kept getting brighter and brighter, and she knew it was because of Tali.
Eagerly she opens the door to the decontamination room then pauses in the middle of the room so the decontamination mist covered her fully. Once she past the screening she quietly slipped in and watched the two women talk amongst themselves. She easily recognized one of them as Shepard's adopted sister Kaityah, but the other sh

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.

"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

Beneath the sheets, her leg is draped over mine, hooking behind and pulling it between hers.

He had grown to hate the Illusive Man after he saw what he really was and, even though Anderson and everybody in the universe, including Shepard himself, wanted the Reapers dead, Shepard realised during these last minutes that he wasn't a murderer.

Commander John Shepard was lying on the couch in what he would call his new apartment, but after the events in the Bahak system, it was nothing more than a lavish prison to him. His home was just an ear shot's away from the Alliance headquarters on Earth, located in hustling and bustling Vancouver, of the United North American States. Lots of tall buildings and lovely patios for those who either had great Alliance connections, or really knew how to get the best in life. Shepard was not one of those people. Although, judging by his current living status, you would not think that. A large condo with snow white walls and floor, lamps giving off a calm blue light, bed and couch made out of special memory foam, working kitchen filled with food of the highest caliber, and furniture that would put the designs of the now extinct Ikea to shame. But all of that meant absolutely nothing to Shepard. After all, all the riches in the world couldn't make up for the l

Shepard frowned as he looked over what he had written. He hated writing these letters, informing families their children had died on some god-forsaken planet. Kaiden was a good man, and had been a damn fine addition to his team. He kept running the mission over and over in his head, trying to figure out if there had been something he could have done to save both of them. He slowly got up from his desk and idly stared at the painting hanging on his cabin wall. "I'm sorry Kaiden," he thought to himself. "There was nothing I could do."

Slowly, but surely, our relationship started to become more intimate. I started going on dates with Tali, across the gleaming cities of Rannoch. Unintentionally recollecting all of the fun we've had in the past, and how, despite all the glamour, Rannoch will never be as unforgettable as the Citadel. With all of the fun shop owners, people, classic food, easy to win-over clerks who were giving out discounts like candy. I even took her and Shanah to the Citadel a few times, just to bring back all of the good memories when we weren't fighting Reapers, Collectors, or the like. And we ended up creating some new ones. Like letting Shanah buy a fish only to accidentally let it swim freely in the Presidium pool, making one particular Krogan very happy. Thinking he finally caught a legit Presidium fish. For he obviously never seen an Earth gold fish before.
As the days turned into weeks, and so forth, I noticed that I was referring to Shepard's memories as my own a lot more often.

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
