SHEPARD/TALI GOODBYE SCENE
Contains spoliers for those who have not completed the game.
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

EDI had sent a message to their craft saying the Normandy had been attacked by the Collectors and that most of the Crew had been abducted. They had headed straight back to the Normandy and despite EDIs reassurance, had done a complete sweep of the Ship for Crew or Collectors. The only crew member to be found still on board was Joker. Who was sitting in the engine room, curled up against a wall. He was very weak after having crawled through the innards of the ship to avoid capture, so Shepard and Jacob had both helped him up to the Command Deck to recap the story of what happened. Shepard had ordered everyone back to there posts, with the exception of Miranda and Jacob. Miranda to confirm the story for her report to the Elusive Man, and Jacob who had helped Joker to the Command Deck, hung around. Shepard had ordered the team to check for any abnor

Aerith awoke to the smell of breakfast being cooked. Stumbling through her morning routine, the last Cetra moved robotically until she finally managed to wake herself up enough to greet the rest of the world.
Her first surprise of the day as she left her bedroom, however, was to see her step-mother coming out of her own room. Elmyra, too, seemed to be surprised to see Aerith. For a minute, the two Gainsborough women stared at each other with questioning looks, confused as to who would be cooking the morning meal.
Suddenly, the young Cetra remembered the strange woman from yesterday- Grace Lunaria, also known as Katlyn Lune. Quickly walking towards the kitchen with Elmyra close behind, the two paused when they suddenly heard music. It was very dramatic-sounding, uplifting yet with a sad tone. As suddenly the music quieted, Aerith and her step-mother peeked into the kitchen.

Tali wasn't really listening to the vid "Dealing With Loss" she had downloaded from the Extranet. It wasn't helping. She couldn't cast her mind to any particularly happy moments with her father, and the only one she could think of was now hollow and tainted by the experiments he had preformed on the Geth. It was the promise he had made to her when she was 10 years old and still in her bubble. He had promised her the Homeworld, that his work would help their people reclaim it, and that when they had, he would build her a house on the Homeworld. A home, he promised, no one would ever take away.
She turned off the vid with her omni-tool and rolled over onto her side in her bunk. She was still trying to assemble her thoughts after their trip to the Migrant Fleet. She

"I. Want. You"
Keelah, could it really have been that simple? She thought. She had scarcely been able to think of little else since their moment in the Drive Core. a few members of the crew couldn't help but notice a happier tone to her voice when she spoke. She had also been reliably informed by Garrus that Shepard "seemed to have a slight spring in his step these days." Needless to say, she was happier than she had been in a long time.
But now, she felt very uncomfortable. Her promise to do some research on Quarian- Human relations to the Commander had not gone well so far. All the information she had researched on the Extranet wasn't very useful. Most had simply said something along the lines of:

I have a crush on Lola. There, I admit it. Those flashing eyes, easy smile, and wicked tongue have me hooked. The way she moves, the way she fights, the way those tendrils of hair escape her ponytail and curl beside her face... okay, it might be a bit more than a crush. But am I anything more than a buddy to her? I think I might have been until today. I bite back a groan and let my head drop back, staring at the ceiling. Stupid, stupid, stupid!

"Hey!" Tali yelled like alarm when the wrench simply flew off from her hand and with hollow clank fell on the cold slatted floor of the Engineering deck. The Quarian tech sighed irritated, looking at the chuckling person in the corner and venting air off her suit angrily.
"Tag, stop that! That`s not funny! I need to work!" She tried to collect the instrument from the floor but it slipped her hand again flying into Shepard`s opened palm.
Tali narrowed her shining eyes and threw the massive nut that she was just going to screw on at him. Shepard easily foresaw that, the air around him shined blue and he immediately teleported to the neighboring corner of the room, the "missile" missed him and hit the wall, making unpleasant echo.

Shepard was standing in a dark forest, his legs frozen, his feet deep in mud, his arms reaching out. As the ashes fell, so did his tears. The land stretching away before him, a white spotlight shinning down below. The screams of so many pouring into his ear. On the other stretch of land, a beautiful Asari with tears pouring down her cheeks. Her form-fitted combat suit accentuated to every curve on her body, his lover Liara T'soni.
" Liara!" He would shout, but she would still cry, admonishing his cries.
"I thought you were dead Shepard It has been two years " Distant whispers echoed. They pierced just more than his heart but everything he stood for. Her image was what kept him from letting Saren finish his mission or let the Collectors allow the Reapers.

Chapter 1 - Deep Space
A purple-gloved hand floated across the surface of the hull panel, two elongated fingers gently tracing the unique irregularities of the dull grey material, dipping into the pock marks formed by cosmic dust and asteroid fragments. Tali'Zorah nar Rayya gently lifted the plate back into place on the exterior of the Rayya's hull, the worn metal quickly obscuring the serpent's nest of wiring that lay beneath. Holding it in place with her left hand she reached for the rivet gun on her belt with her right and set about bolting the panel back into place firmly. The gun, normally accompanied with a sharp whirring as it operated, accompanied her in silence, as noiseless as her in the cosmic void they shared.
With the hull whole once more, the young quarian hooked the tool back on her belt and gently pushed against the ship's surface, the lack of gravity causing the resistance of the ship to twirl her about like a leaf in the wind. Applying a little more pressure, c

You could say I had an obsession with English things scones, tea, people from England (complete with accents), and speaking in a British accent myself, knowing full well that England and Britain were almost the same place.
There was this one guy who I guess you could say I had the "hots" for. He tended to cuss like a sailor being from Britain, it must be a requirement to use every offensive saying in one breath. He also wore interesting outfits, most of them being between punk-rocker and Goth. He had a nose ring, snake bites, three studs in each ear, and eyebrow piercings, one for each brow. (I'd learn later he also had a tongue piercing, but we'll get to that ) He had jaggedly cut blonde hair that hung over his eyes and his thick eyebrows. His nails were painted black and he wore a black studded choker that sparkled in the light if it caught it just right. (I'm being too descriptive, aren't I? Let's get on with the story, then.)
I'd met this guy at a concert.

In which Garrus listens to Joker and tries to find the perfect Valentine's Day present for Shepard.
It was one of the stranger sights Garrus Vakarian had seen on the Citadel. Odd enough to make him stop in place and wonder if he should be in amazed, confused, or slightly intimidated. Probably all three at once, he decided at last.
He had never seen so much pink in his life. Well, pink mixed with plenty of reds, whites, and the occasional smattering of purple. This was the third human shop he had seen with those decorations (although this was the gaudiest one to date),and if the crowds around it were any indication, he was going to have to admit that maybe Joker had actually been serious when he insisted that Valentines Day was one of the most important of human holidays.
When the pilot had first mentioned Valentines Day to him, Garrus had been more than a little skeptical. It sounds exactly like the kind of joke the man would
