The doors of Liara's office slid open again.
Still in her chair facing the console, Liara sighed, "Sera, I ."
He cleared his throat, not wanting her to say anything further, making sure she knew it wasn't Shepard.
Liara gasped, quickly turning around in her chair. "Garrus! I I'm sorry. I thought "
"Yes, I know what you thought Liara," he said roughly as he slowly settled into the chair that just held Shepard.
"What can I do for you Garrus?" she said pleasantly.
He wasn't exactly sure what he wanted from Liara but he knew he wanted answers. Shepard hurrying so quickly from Liara's office alarmed him.

What the Hell were we thinking going after the Reapers? What made us think we would be able to stop them when countless civilizations before ours fell?
Before London, I found myself thinking this more and more. But then I also started thinking of everything we've accomplished. When Saren turned his back on the Council, they just couldn't see it. They just couldn't believe that one of their own would turn against them. I'd call

"Four in hard cover on the right Commander!" yelled out Tali during a brief lull in the gun fire.
"Got it!" he replied whilst punching out a spent heat clip, "Jack, spook them. Now!"
"Give me cover on 3," Jack called out in acknowledgement, "1, 2, 3!"
Shepard sighted his rifle over the top of the cover and started to lay down a blizzard of covering fire, the sharp staccato punctuated by the deeper thump of Tali's shotgun as both weapo

Ante Up deleted scene: The Last TimeThe exchange on Sur'Kesh was taking longer than expected. Granted, the transfer of the krogan females would take time. Shepard would have to go through proper channels if she wanted to salvage the fragile alliance with the salarians. It wasn't like she could just bust into the place and swoop out with the females. Still, with every second the squad was away, Victus grew more and more anxious, pacing aboard the Normandy.Ante Up deleted scene: The Last Time9 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Still sitting on the floor, arms wrapped around her legs, she rested her cheek on her knees. She closed her eyes, feeling the tears come. One by one, they slowly escaped, trailing down her cheeks as a shuddered sigh of relief passed her lips. What do I do now?
"How long before we reach the Citadel?"
[Approximately 1.5 hours.]
She sniffed and rested her chin on her knees contemplating what to do.
"Thank you EDI."
[Is everything alright?]
A small appreciative smile crossed her lips, "I'll be fine EDI. I just need some time to myself, that's all."

Shepard rounded the corner and headed towards Liara's office, carefully avoiding the Main Battery. She wasn't in the mood to have that inevitable conversation. She picked up her pace a little bit praying the Battery doors didn't open. They didn't. She breathed an audible sigh of relief as she walked through Liara's door and felt the doors quickly slide shut behind her.
"Shepard you can't avoid him forever you know." Liara said without looking up from her terminal.
Crap. How did she know? Was it that obvious?
"What are you talking about Liara?" she asked, trying to pawn off the best nonchalant voice she could muster
Nowhere To Go But Forward - Shiny ObjectsGarrus stretched out in the MAKO, hands interlocking behind his head as he leaned back, resting his feet on the dashboard and stared out at the lush green landscape before him. It would have been a nice place to vacation one day.

He glanced over at Shepard in the driver's seat beside him, who was currently drumming the wheel with intent purpose. Probably trying to figure out how she was going to find a single data module in a colony inundated by pyjaks, no doubt.

Christmas Effect: Sweaters - Lit TradeHe didn't understand. It had to be a human thing. All of the singing? Decorating with strings of sparkly material? The requisitions officer had called it garland, but Garrus didn't understand the purpose of it. What did it symbolize? Everything in turian culture had some sort of ceremonial purpose, but all this seemed to do was get in the way.Christmas Effect: Sweaters - Lit Trade1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
When he returned from the mess hall he had found the MAKO covered in the stuff and it shed its shiny stands everywhere. Spirits, it was on damn near everything. Some of the material stuck to his hands and face, and no amount of shaking would detach it from his plates; and if he tried to brush it off, i
To Hell and BackShepard looked out the window in the Starboard Observatory at the endless space. Samara had left her quarters long enough for Shepard to steal a moment in the room, alone. Throughout the time she had spent on the new Normandy, she had felt an aching for her old crew and routines. When she didn't have Cerberus to answer to, and when the threat was just a man. Fighting what she knew must be an enormous army, with no real way of taking them down, especially by herself, seemed an insurmountable challenge at this point. The only way she could think that the Reapers would be brought down was through the combined efforts of all the sentient races inTo Hell and Back2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

CHAPTER 6: FAMILY
On a whim she decided to stop in and see Liara before going to the CIC. She felt that she owed her friend an apology for bolting earlier. Forming the apology in her head as she walked toward the door, she pressed key combination that unlocked it. She opened her mouth to speak as her eyes scanned the room for her friend, growing wide as they locked in on the Turian standing by the window.
The carefully thought out apology left her head blindsided by the sight of her 2 closest friends apparently in the middle of something she definitely didn't want to know anything about. She turned on her heel and walked away

Growing up on a farm on Mindoir was never easy. We knew how to work hard and had good work ethics. I remember my family as if they were still here beside me. My mom, dad, my five brothers and one sister. All of them. I remember my brothers riding their bikes around the farm. I wished I could ride with them. I felt that longing what seemed to be forever. One christmas, my daddy bought me a bike. He was going to teach me to ride, just like he taught my brothers.

Ideals of a Hero: Mass Effect 3 alternate endingSo I finished Mass Effect 3 last night. And like many fans I was devastated by the poorly devised ending and lack of closure. Not to mention of all the possible 12 endings none of them is a happy ending. But to give credit where it's due, the game was incredibly epic up to the last 10minutes.Ideals of a Hero: Mass Effect 3 alternate ending1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
I came across a few fan written endings and I thought I would like to put my version to the works.
This is by no means perfectly written. It's my first attempt to write anything infact and it turned out much longer than I intended it to be, sorry.

Not just after missions any more. She's tired when she looks through the list of possible assignments, when Traynor calls to her that another distress signal has been intercepted. When Thane dies, when she's almost spaced on the geth dreadnought. When every time she steps out of the elevator, she's faced with a wall, a long list of names in even white letters that remind her of the price of failure, Kaidan's name directly at eye level.

He was thinking differently about her ever since he had kissed her. That day when he saved his friends. But she didn't know that he'd kissed her. And that's what made him sad.
Apparently, she also liked another guy. Taki, Monroe, and even Boom wouldn't tell him who it was, they said it was too obvious and that he was being oblivious.
He didn't quite know what they meant, but he didn't really care right now.
"You're staring at her again" Taki said, smirking.
Linus just shrugged.
"When are you gonna tell her man?" Taki asked.
"Well not now Taki!" Linus said "She probably likes someone else... You even told me she did!"
Taki rolled his eyes.
"Whatever you say dude, but I'm telling you, If you don't act fast, you maybe won't have another chance."
Linus looked back at Iris.
"And Stop drooling!" Taki said.

"Sorry Wrex," Shepard said with a wave of her hand. "Liara insists we keep her away from wastelands and turrets until she can at least walk."
Wrex laughed. "I've seen how far she can chuck her toys. She could handle it. Couldn't you?" He leaned forward, extending a fist to the child seated in Shepard's lap. Ava smiled and hit it eagerly with her own hand, getting another hearty chuckle from the krogan.
"Attagirl. See? She knows she's up for it. You two are overprotective."
Shepard leaned against the arm of her chair, cocking an eyebrow.

Okay so this is my one-shot that I did for greenmamba5's art trade meme. This is the scenario that she gave me:
Garrus and his dad don't really like the idea of Chellick being with Solana. For Garrus it might be understandable (because he knows Chell's faults since they worked together), but Chellick's actually a nice guy so why doesn't Dad like him?
I'm thinking there was a misunderstanding of some sort that made Papa think Chellick wasn't fit to date his little girl.

Garrus had never been there before and he could hardly wait to see it. It had been six months since he had seen his father; his last visit the week of Garrus' tenth birthday. With his father's work at C-Sec, he wasn't able to make it home very often. His mother, Tacita, suggested that father bring him to the Citadel during his week off from school and to Garrus' happy surprise, his dad accepted.A Week to Remember9 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

Shepard was speechless. The room was deathly silent. Anderson got up and walked over to the glass case behind his enormous desk. He selected a bottle from the third shelf and two glasses. Setting them on the desk, he carefully poured the amber liquid into each of them. He picked up the glasses and walked back over to her. He offered her a glass as he sat down in the chair across from her. She gratefully accepted it, taking a generous mouthful before setting it on the table. The liquid was rich and warm, burning a trail down her throat.

The elevator came to a halt at the Embassy level and opened its doors. Shepard stepped out and headed toward Anderson's office. Her omni-tool blinked and she pulled up the messages one from Gardner with all of the items he needed for the ship, one from Traynor with the location of the florist, one from Dr. Chakwas with the manifest of medical supplies to trade with Tactus and one from her mother. She opened the last one:
I just arrived and got your message from Specialist Traynor. I'll see you in a little while for dinner.
