no one moves
the TV shows static
minds meld into one
and there they freeze
Drip back to color
yellow, black, green, orange, red
divided on the page
then I wake up
nothing has changed
the colors can't meld
they have lost that ablility
as they dance around each other
flitting through the flames
created by mind that are
wired through the super computer we call
but some are disconnected
watching through the flames
you look at me with contempt
I look at you with sorrow
you are programed
I am free
and as you sit down to another night
just like the last
just like last year
I'm out of that familiarity with the world
The time is right
stars have aligned
and we are being called to a different universe
a different time, space, and reality
but you missed the train
everyone has left
you were stuck in that virtual reality
that the super computer is feeding through your veins
but you can not cancel
there is no control alt delete
just a wire that tells you

Interspecies Awkwardness--Chapter 12
Jane + Garrus Vakarian
Garrus ran the pad of his thumb over the door frame, feeling the snag of rough wood against the fine plates covering the digit. I really need to sand this, he thought to himself as he continued to play with the rough patch. In truth, what he really needed to do was not be standing here, listening to his father and mate. If they’d wanted to have a public conversation, wouldn’t this have taken place in the living room? They were in the office, away from prying eyes, for a reason.
So why am I still standing here? he thought, but already knew the answer.
He was starved for Jane and more than willing to spy; peeping around door frames if it meant he’d have a chance of seeing her smile. Jane’s laughter pulled him out of his thoughts and he leaned around the door frame in an attempt to learn what had made her so happy.

Mass Effect 3 - A Video Game ReviewMass Effect 3 - A Video Game Review1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
it's often rare that I get requests to review movies, but when I do, I consider it a challenge, but a challenge that is worth taking on if I can get my hands on a copy of the film. But it's even more conflicting when I get demands to review a video game. Unlike movies where I can just go online to find them and, if I'm lucky, watch them, with video games, I have to buy them, which means using money I don't have since most money I do get, I send towards paying off my car payments or paying my college tuition, which is generally why I'm inclined to say no when asked to review a particular video game. But when three people ask me, no, beg me to review a video game just because they want to set an example against a company who made it, I can't help but feel some sense of expectation to deliver what they want and the feeling to speak my mind.
With that out of the way, let's talk about "Mass Effect 3," one of the more controversial games in recent years for two reasons: first one being that

"If you don't get up you are going to die!" that got his attention faster than a charging krogan. He opened his eyes to see the face of a woman right next to his. Her attention was on the other side of the room where a loud but muffled noise was sounding. She looked at him and Shepard saw a glimmer of hope in her eyes. She grabbed his shirt and pulled him off the table he was laying on to the floor. He hit the ground with a solid thud and clank. Whatever was fogging his mind was gone now as the pain sliced into his brain. Letting out a groan he pushed himse

Shepard walks away from the three paths that were opened up for him and towards a window, "I refuse," Shepard said, "I believe that the army that I have constructed will defeat your Reapers."
"They cannot," the Catalysts said as he stood beside Shepard, "you are a fool for believing in your army."
"No you are the fool," Shepard said, "I helped unite the Quarians and the Geth. They had been fighting for three hundred years, but with my help I stopped the war and united them together."
"That peace will not last," the Catalyst said, "eventually a Quarian will kill a geth and the war will be restarted. If you destroy all synthetic life the peace will last."
"No, I won't destroy all synthetic life. It won't bring peace between the Quarians and the Geth it will just destroy the Geth and that is not peace. I believe the Quarians and Geth can live in harmony," Shepard said, "perhaps a Quarian like Xen may try to dissect a geth but if

Always after washing herself and have put her clothes on, Bethany Hawke would always ask her mother to comb her hair.
It always such a pain to do ever since she was a child, so it was a habit to ask her to comb her long black hair.

But to ask such a thing to her elder brother was...well...Embarrassing.
And also she doubted he would accept to do it.
He was a warrior after all and a man too.

Spike’s lungs burned with exhaustion as he darted down the dark, vacant streets. He looked over his shoulder time and time again, hoping that those in his pursuit would finally give up.
As he passed a building, he thought it might serve as a refuge, but as he tried the door, only to find it locked, his hopes were dashed. Not willing to waste anytime knocking, Spike turned and began running once more.
Quickly, he found himself regretting this, for the hoof steps he had been running from, were beginning to echo louder and closer.
A now older Spike awoke with his heart racing and a cool chill running down his scales. He brought his hand to his head and tried to wipe away some of the sweat he had accumulated in his sleep. It didn’t take him long to realize that his face wasn’t the only thing damp, for his pillows were as well.
He looked over to see the first beams of sunlight were beginning to r

I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

Although since the destruction of the Collector Base, Shepard has been having the vision from the Prothean beacon burning through his mind every night. Unfortunately for him, tonight will be the worse he has had yet.
As Shepard looked over the latest maintenance logs for the Normandy, EDI's synthetic voice comes through the intercom "Shepard, you have an incoming call from the Engineering Deck."
He pinches the bridge of his noes as he lets out a heavy sigh. "Tali again? I know what she's going to say, and she should know that she doesn't have to ask anymore." He pauses for a

Rising above tempestuous seas
Where the darklings play
Under skies of gray
Shrouding me in the mysteries of the ages...
Not that I dislike the romantics,
It just annoys me when people get all pedantic
And sacrifice substance for style
When rhyme schemes
Break ideas and dreams
Into little more than lines on a page.

In my life I had seen more than most people went through in their entire lives. The life of thief wasn’t easy, and it meant that you had to make some of the biggest sacrifices, some bigger than others. Being a thief came with many responsibilities, and requirements, which if you could not do and did not have, could get you killed.
But when you are as good as me, you make big enemies...enemies that go out for your blood. One in particular, Donovan Hawk, has a keen disliking for me and is always trying to see me dead. Of course, every single plan ends with him failing, but that was when it was just me.
Emotions are something that shouldn’t be mixed in this line of work, but they always seem to muddle up things. That’s when I met Keiji, and we fell in love. He was everything my heart had yearned for, and he made me feel special. Every now and again I think back at all of our memories together...It makes me so sad to think that we couldn’t have the life t

We were the demise
Of our own creation
They took our lands
Nation by nation
So we fled
Into the darkness of space
To save what was left
Of our death bound race
They arose against us
When the one with the hole
Asked a dangerous question
"Do we have a soul?"
All was lost
We fled with our fleet
We wouldn't know the feeling

Who has fought for all he's worth
And when doom emerged
Out of the barren ground
We knew the source of the Geth
Had been found
The Reaper stood tall
For everyone to see
And Shepard brought it down
With the Normandy
He took back our world
And brought down a Reaper
And our people knew
He was a keeper
So we assembled

And the galaxy would know
Our incredible feat
And in the times to come
I fell for our savior
And he noticed it
With my change of behavior
He didn't deny

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.
