I've no doubt the entire ship knows Garrus came to my cabin last night, and like the rest, I'm sure you're wondering what happened. (Bless Edi and the privacy veil she gave us.) He left a short while ago to run a final set of calibrations before we hit the relay, so I may as well gather my thoughts while I can.
I won't bore you with the details, suffice to say we took our time - knowing full well this might be the only opportunity we would ever have to be together. At first it was enough just to touch but slowly we began to learn about each other, explore our differences as well as our similarities. There were a few awkward moments and a lot of laughter but no embarrassment. And when we were ready, that first time was very slow and very gentle as we connected and bonded in ways I never would have thought possible. The second time was for fun and the third time, when he finally got it through that thick mass of plates that passes for a head that he wasn't going to hurt me, we bo

The Normandy. Walking her decks for the first time two years ago sent chills up my spine. Good chills. Like the kind you get when you meet someone and know immediately that sooner or later you'll wake up in the same bed. Like the kind I got the first time I met Kaidan Alenko. Only with the Normandy, I knew it was love. With Kaidan, well, it's been two years.
You've asked me more than once to write down my memories, Miranda. Search for gaps. Not that I'd tell you if I found any. If you thought the project you poured yourself into for so long had turned out anything less than perfect, I've no doubt you'd take it as a personal affront. Might even try to go back in and correct the flaw.
Okay, bad joke. We may have gotten off to a shaky start but I've come to realize you care about things more deeply than you'll ever admit. And you helped save Garrus. So I owe you. And so I'll write.
Garrus. Now that brings back memories. The first time I saw him sta

"I don't know how you pulled it off, but you did it, Shepard. Communications are back up and reports are flooding in from all over the galaxy." He took her from her two companions, wrapping her into a bear hug. He didn't even try to hide the tears in his voice. "You did good, child."
"Just doing my job, sir." It was the last thing she remembered saying before her world went black.
Shepard opened her eyes to see Miranda hovering above her. There was a moment of déjà vu and panic set in as she struggled to sit up, only to be pushed gently back onto the bed.
"Relax, Shepard. You're at Huerta Memorial Hospital. You've only been out for a few days. I promise.

I know you saw what happened via the security cams in your office, Miranda. Too bad you didn't make it down, I think you might have enjoyed it.
Since we set aside part of the cargo hold to be used as a sparring ring, Grunt and Garrus have often made use of it but today I was the one who needed it. I know you know about the letter Kaidan sent me. (No need to pretend otherwise, now is there?) Well, at first I was happy to hear from him. Ecstatic, actually. And that happiness lasted through the first three read thru's. I should have stopped at three because unfortunately the more I read his note, the angrier I became. On Horizon he yelled at me for not contacting him. Hell, until that day I couldn't even find him. All his links were blocked, though by Cerberus or the Alliance or both I have no idea, and no one up to then would even give me a hint about his location. Then he admits he knew I was alive? And he was just there to see if the rumors of my working with Cerberu

Ah, the Citadel. Still a hotbed of hypocrisy. I played nice with the Council even though I felt like popping them all with a big fat singularity. They threatened to put me on trial for treason. Treason! After all I did for them. Hell, I died for them. It's not like I asked Cerberus to bring me back. As I recall, I didn't have much say in the matter. One minute I'm savior of the Citadel and the next I'm public enemy number one. Well, at least the clenched teeth and frozen smile got my Specter status reinstated; with the small caveat I stay out of this part of the galaxy.
And Anderson. Yes I owe him a lot, and yes, I still respect the man. But he dodged my questions saying only that Kaidan was on assignment but that he couldn't tell me where. Classified, he said. Couldn't say more as long as I was working for Cerberus, he said. And he even had the gall to have Kaidan's picture sitting out on his desk. Go ahead Anderson, punch me in the gut.

Everyone's been trying to get into my head. You, Kelly, even Joker, although he was just trying to make me feel better. Not easy for an avowed "not a people person", person but his intentions were good. I know it's your job to keep tabs on my mental state but relax, I'm fine. It just took a little time for me to sort it out.
Horizon. It would be our first opportunity to engage the enemy directly and a chance to test Mordin's seeker swarm defense. And then I was given the additional intel that Kaidan was there under orders from the Alliance. Mentally I filed it as part of the mission. There wasn't time to do anything else.
They hit us almost as soon as we landed but Mordin's theories were sound and our defenses held. The first few waves of husks fell under our counter assault, giving us a moment to look around and asses our enemy. That's when the panic hit. All around us were colonists held in stasis, some still frozen in place, others already sealed in those horrifying containm

People say that everyone is equal nowadays,
But that's not true
We have the special offers based on race.
Even in the school I grew up in
There was the African-American club,
The Indian club,
The Latino club.
We cant preach equality
Unless we teach people to take pride
In who they are.
I was never taught this
I was taught I had it easier
Because I was white
I was taught
To be humble
Because of what other white people had done
I was taught
To treat others better than I treated myself
Because if I didn't
I was being racist.
I believe without a doubt
That our society doesn't have equality.
