Her heart skipped a beat as she thought she had recognized him. It had been months since she had come back. Months since she tried to bury deep in her heart all the feelings Noctis had awakened inside her. She had managed to save Serah. Made a few new friends. But now, Hope was back with his father, Snow was taking all Serah's time, Sazh was a father once again and both Fang and Vanille were lost. As for Cocoon, it had changed. Lightning still had her house, but it didn't feel the same. Or maybe was it the problem. It was just as before. As if nothing had happened. As if her meeting Noctis had only been a dream.
But she remembered his eyes. His smiles. His laugh. His back. She started to run after him. Many people were walking among the streets. Life had come back to normal and Cocoon was still a place where they lived, even if it had fallen in the middle of Pulse. Lightning was back at being a soldier for the guardian corps. She had been watching over circulation,

He had to hurry and report to Ignis right away before he was caught with the supplies. Prompto raced to Ignis' room and knocked rapidly. "Open up, man!"
A man with glasses opened the door and gave his blonde friend a look. "There's no need to hurry or panic, Prompto. We still have a lot of time."
"Speak for yourself. I was almost caught several times! The targets are very tricky and they're good. Too good." Prompto said in a low dramatic voice. Ignis chuckled at him. "As expected of them. Now come on in so we can discuss more of the plans."
The blonde man nodded and entered his friend's room with the supplies in hand.

“Hey don’t you pass out on me Zeta, remember last time back in the academy, I told you not to drink that glowing purple drink, I had to drag your ass all the way back to your room” said Delta.
“How could I forget, those were the good old days, although having an alarm wake me up at six with a hangover wasn’t what I would call a fun wakeup call” chuckled Zeta.

O'er hills we go
Fragging all the way
Needles 'round us ping
Making our shields bright
What fun it is to shoot and sing
Our slaying song tonight!
Jingle bells, Prophet smells
Jackal laid an egg
Hunter got annoyed at him
And tore off his leg
Jingle bells, shot gun shells
Hope it never ends
Oh what fun it is to fight
And kill all of your friends!
A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon the Arbiter
Was seated by my side
The Warthog it was jacked
And then we both got shot
We plowed into a mass of Grunts
And then we got upsot!
Oh, jingle bells, Johnson yells
Throw all your grenades
Flood is gonna kill us all
In many gruesome ways
Jingle bells, though I fell
I'll respawn again
Oh what fun it is to fight
And kill all of your friends!

Heather Shepard opened her eyes and blinked heavily. The waking world filtered back into her mind slowly as she stretched and yawned, squirming and flopping over in bed. The faint voices of her parents grabbed her attention--she tilted her head to the side and held her breath to get a better listen.
"How could you do that to me? HOW?"
The little girl startled at her mother's roar; one small arm was still tightly hooked around a large stuffed Krogan and she hugged him close, curling her body back up into a ball and sinking back into her blankets. She drew pensive brows and pursed her lips together as her stomach did a cartwheel.
Mama was mad again.
"TELL ME HOW!"
She was mad a lot these days.
Heather tucked her chin into her chest and buried her nose into the Krogan's head

The doors opened, and Kaidan was there. How long had he been waiting in the gangway, Miridian wondered; it had been hours since they separated on the Presidium landing pad.
- Hey Kaidan, she greeted her as naturally as she could.
She stopped when she saw he had "this look" in his eyes. She knew it meant unpleasant discussion, but she also knew that she was not in the mood at all. Garrus probably saw it too for his tall body stiffened.
- What's up? Shepard asked, her tone sounding a little sharp.
- I'm trying to wrap my head around what just happened, he answered, crossing his arms and looking out the gangway's window.
Shepard gritted her teeth, took a deep breath and said:

He probably felt that she was not as friendly

There were dozens of new things that Garrus Vakarian had learned about humans since walking aboard Normandy for the first time. One of those things was the peculiar habit humans had of referencing popular culture in their figures of speech; Gunnery Chief Williams seemed to be particularly fond of such references. Hed even heard times when she and Shepard had gotten into a vid quote contest to see who could quote the most vids and identify where all those quotes had come from. It was . . . strange, to say the least, that humans could find such entertainment in such curious things.
Another odd thing was that Earth apparently had a myriad of special occasions that they took great pride in celebrating. Most certainly, the turians had their own calendar events, and some of them were even talked about for months in advance, but it just seemed as if Normandy

"Shepard?" Dr. Chakwas waited patiently until the Commander had summoned herself a little. Shepard looked bad. Her uniform was partly torn in pieces, she was dirty and smelly, and her eyes were puffy and red. Dr. Chakwas would not let her go to Liara. Both child and mother were still very weak, and it was a miracle that Liara survived the blood loss.
"She's dead, isnīt she?" Shepard sounded incredibly weak and tortured; her gaze went back to bed. It was agonizing for Dr. Chakwas to see the young woman so torn on. "Shepard? Look at me." Chakwas continued talking as soon as the commander's attention was focused back on her. "Liara a

Shepard came over to talk about the weapon upgrades. His favorite subject, really, and Garrus had been listening very carefully in the beginning. But the longer she spoke, the fewer words got through to him. The idea that it was a translator glitch occurred to him but he dismissed it quickly. He understood the words. Those that he could catch.

Kate refused to believe this was the end. She just had to make it to the reaper beam, and then she would be transported to the crucible to activate the conduit. She struggled to clear her vision from the blast that had knocked her off her feet a few moments before.
She cradled her left arm to her chest. She was pretty sure her shoulder was dislocated. Most of her weapons were missing, including the widow her favorite sniper rifle. All she had left was her pistol. She moved slowly though the carnage of bodies that littered the ground. She walked carefully around a charred corpse unable to tell if it was one of hers or one of the reapers. Ahead of her three husks crawled from the rubble. She lifted her arm narrowing her sea foam green eyes at her targets. She squeezed the trigger rapidly firing three shots one into the skulls of each husk. Undeterred she ventured forward her focus only on the light ahead.

Wrex's words gave a light of hope to Garrus and Tali for the next few days. The two men remained on the station, waiting for any news about the crew from Anderson, their only source of information. But almost a week passed and still, not a word. Tali finally arrived to the Citadel, where she met with her ex squad mates at the Turian's place. She politely inquired about her friend's training who politely gave her a short account of the different sessions he had been through for the past months, but all could sense the mood was not to trite banter. It was mostly a way to keep the somber thoughts and crushing pressure of the waiting out of their minds...

Mordin paced back and forth in front of his work-desk, thoughtful, one arm crossed over the curved line of his chest, the other hand reaching up to stroke his weak chin. The results of Shepard's check-up sat in front of him, odd, ghostly images stacked neatly in a digital file. "Should not have compiled," he mused, short, shaking his head. "Should have caused negative reaction. Should have cancelled out effects entirely, caused extreme internal pain, ignored or even destroyed " Stopping in his pacing, he leaned on the desk, taking a long breath, the dark lines of the markings over the crests of his brow drawing together in a deep frown. "Startling," he breathed. "Unnatural."
"So what should I do?" Shepard asked, her usually strong, assured voice oddly stilted, as if she were doing everything in her power to keep it from shaking with nerves. She was in shock, but she was not about to show it to

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

Kaidan pinched himself - the resulting pain proved he was awake, that this wasn’t some sort of dream. Stepping out of the shadows, away from the pre-fab buildings, he approached the mechanic, along with Shepard and crew.

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
Two Turians and a KeeperGarrus and Chellick were busy reviewing footage at their desks into the late hours of the evening. They were working on a case together involving suspicious cargo that was being run through the Citadel. All ships docking were legitimate which meant that when they finally pinpointed the ship, either the entire crew was "dirty" or they had an extremely shady crew member that was very good at hiding his illegal activities. In any case, they had to pinpoint what ship, or ships, the cargo was coming from and this was proving to be quite the task. They reviewed hundreds of tapes from the course of a few months, watching every ship dock, watching every crate that exited, checking the docking records to make sure everything matched up. So far, they had turned up nothing.Two Turians and a Keeper3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Placing her helmet on her personal desk, she waved her hand over the digital picture frame there. She smiled slightly, leaning her palms on the edge of the desk as the image appeared. It was of her first unit as an Alliance Soldier... the team she had lost on Akuze.
It had been taken on one of their days off, long before the mission on Akuze. In the image, her eyes were bright, happy. She had her arms slung over the shoulders of Corporal Toombs and another soldier, and everyone was smiling.
Shepard's small smile faded as she looked at the faces of her old friends. Why had she been the only survivor? She couldn't count how many times she had wished she wasn't. She had watched every last soldier in that picture die, right before her eyes. Memories flooded through her mind of being hunted by the Thrasher Maw... all because of those scientists.
