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

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.

However, contortion is more than just art to those involved it is a way of life. It spices up everyday life, from watching television while in the splits to sleeping with one's own legs wrapped around their head, and also helps with general health in wellbeing. With contortion bringing in money as well, it can be one of surprisingly few ways to have a sustainable life from something one just does all day.

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.

The pain in her side was excruciating as she dragged herself onward but she did not let it stop her, face fixed grimly on her goal. Beyond the Citadel, she could see explosions as the battle raged on around her. Involuntarily, her mind drifted to pleasant memories, things that reminded her of why she was doing this, and a familiar turian face appeared in her mind, awkwardly asking her if they were crazy for considering trying to 'blow off some steam.'

There I stood. Speaking with the voice of my people, showing the world what we are standing for. The suit I was wearing wasn't my taste, but I had to show them I was serious, that I'm still the strongest in this world. There were many countries at the world meeting. Not all countries were present, but of course all the "important" countries were. I tried to impressed them, to make them listen to the voice of my people, and from the serious looks of their faces I could conclude I was succeeding. And even though every small nod, every sign of interest was important to me, the only thing what really matter to me was the man sitting closeted to me. England had his poker face on, which disappointed me a bit. I had no idea if he was liking my ideas or not, so I even tried harder.
I remember the first important meeting during which I was allowed to speak. The days before that meeting I had studied really hard, I didn't want to forget something which I had to say. But when I stood there and it

ME: Nail CareME: Nail Care3 years ago in Romance More Like This
On her first night together with Garrus, Shepard had been mildly concerned about the talons that she knew turians possessed. She trusted Garrus with all of her heart and knew that he never intentionally harm her, but there was that instinctual distrust of sharp claws near her softer human flesh. Of course she had been thinking of entirely different things by the time that evening reached the stage where his gloves came off, and then she didn't' have the luxury to think about minor details until after they had blow the Collector base to bits.
Being under house arrest had given her more than enough time to think, and Garrus was one of the happy memories she had she to stave on the crushing boredom. One of the questions those memories brought up was if turian anatomy charts and Alliance descriptions of turian talons as 'vicious natural weapons' were overly exaggerated or if Garrus had blunted his just for her.

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.)

Characters: Garrus V. & Shepard (F)
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

He stepped off the elevator and turned toward the direction of the Crew's Quarters. He had a few minutes before he had to get ready to meet Solana and, knowing her, she would probably be late anyway.

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?
