I finally whirl around to face the mass of reporters outside our apartment building, shooting them all a collective glare, shopping bags clutched tightly in my hands. If my fingernails were sharp, they'd probably be digging enough to make my palms bleed.

A/N: Hello! I know I'm supposed to be on a writing holiday/vacation to study, but this is an idea I've had in the back of my head now that I couldn't resist looking into while I had a free day. This is only the first chapter, and I'm uploading this for two reasons: as a birthday present to Kassandra Black (Happy Birthday Kass! Everyone go and send her a happy birthday PM!), and a treat because of my long absence (which is gonna continue until July, I'm afraid).
So, advanced warning, do NOT expect regular updates on this. At all. I have the whole plot of this planned out, and it should be around seven or so short chapters, like a case in Masses to Masses 1. Probably a good 20,000 words, maybe more. Masses to Masses 3 is July's priority, this is just a little bit of fun that I might come back to now and again, and you all deserve something since I've been gone for a cool two months or so now.

"That's a hell of a place," I say to Melanis, as the two of us peek around an alley corner at Taren Rantus' place. It's well, nice seems like an understatement. I wouldn't say it was mansion size, but it's not far off it. Three stories high with typical flat roof architecture, towering imposingly above us, and the vehicle outside suggests Taren's probably home. After the disaster for Umbra that happened yesterday, it's probably not too crazy to assume he's taking a day at home to try and sort out the aftermath.
There's a balcony railing going all the way along the roof, suggesting it's either where the car gets parked, or some kind of rooftop area for Taren to relax in. The top floor wall is ringed with tall tinted windows, presumably so he can wake up to the lovely Omega view each morning. Hell, we're not too far from Afterlife here.

It's been just under an hour since I had my talk with Aria inside Afterlife. The trip back was a whirlwind inside my head of thoughts, theories and dead ends, trying to work out why I felt what I did, why I didn't feel what I should have. Garrus, Weaver, Sidonis and Melanis picked me up in the shuttle after I recovered my armour from where I left it, and I tried to smile my way through the ride to base, politely laughing at the jokes about my attire and trying to give Melanis reassurance in a non-physical way. Apparently she doesn't want too many of the squad knowing we're together, so we were down to meaningful glances and brushes of contact. Not that I was really in the mood fo

The fact I've seen it all at least a hundred times now, though, means the most spectacular thing about this trip is Garrus driving.

The most common being low caliber mass drivers and small lasers, light plasma and particle cannons are also carried by some designs.

They form the core around which the rest of the fleet fights and are the biggest, heaviest, and most expensive combatants fielded by any navy. Because of their cost, smaller fleets often forgo the larger battleships and battlecarriers, opting instead for the relatively cheaper battlecruisers.

On Feros, Shepard had finally defeated the Thorian. A sac on the wall started moving, which got Shepard's attention. The sac wiggled, and then it burst open. An asari slipped out, and she landed on her knees. Shepard signaled for Ashley and Kaidan to be ready to fire. The asari slowly and gingerly got up to face Shepard and his squad.
"I..I'm free. I suppose I should thank you for releasing me" the asari said
"Are you alright?" Shepard asked
Shepard motioned for Ashley and Kaidan to stand down. Ashley was reluctant, but she complied after Kaidan took his hand away from his pistol.
"I..I should be, in time. I'm Shiala. I serve I served Matriarch Benenzia, and Saren. I was given to this Thorian so Saren can extract information. Once he was finished, he ordered the geth to kill him" Shiala explained

Shepard, Garrus, Ashley, Kaidan, Tali, John, and Linda made it to the tower that was between Zhu's Hope and ExoGeni's HQ. Cortana picked up more chatter, and she played it in their helmets. The mako was right outside of a hole that led to a lower level of the tower.
"Incoming vehicle. And it isn't one of the geth" a woman's voice said
"Send the Unggoy to check it out" a man's voice said
"You may want to check them out Commander. They may need our help" Cortana suggested
"We have bigger things to worry about Commander. Besides, if they are as helpful as the colonists in Zhu's Hope, there isn't much point in stopping" Ashley argued
"We are stopping to help them. We may as well do that when we have the chance" Shepard decided
The mako stopped in front of the Unggoy patrol. They all froze in place, and when Shepard and his squad got out, the Unggoy started shaking.

A week later, the Normandy arrived at Therum.
"Cortana, do you detect any enemy movement on the surface?" Shepard asked
"I'm detecting some geth movement. Only a handful of patrols, nothing you can't handle. There is a geth correction, a geth controlled Sangheili base though, so I advise taking the mako. I also detect life signs for one other person. Judging from the readings, I would have to say that's the former Noble Six"
"Good job Cortana. I will gather my team and drop us down on the surface"
Shepard ordered the entire Blue Team to meet him in the hanger bay. He is going to need a lot of muscle for this operation. He also figured that an all SPARTAN squad would be a very welcoming sight for Noble Six. Shepard entered the elevator, and he saw that his team had just finished putting on their armor.

Commander Shepard got inside the mako with John, Garrus, and Wrex. The mako dropped onto the surface, and Cortana highlighted the three bases on the map. The mako rolled to a stop from its landing, and then Shepard pressed the accelerator pedal. The mako bounced across the terrain until they reached the first base, which was to the north of their landing zone. Two turrets started firing on them, but Shepard swerved to the side before the missiles reached them. The missiles slammed into the spot they were just in a second ago.
"Garrus, get out and use overload! Chief, man the turret!" Shepard barked
Garrus rolled out of the mako and started shooting at the turrets. He activated his omnitool and overloaded one of the turrets. The turret sputtered, but it wasn't dead. The shields were depleted however, which left it vulnerable to the mako's turret. John fired a few shots while Shepard drove around the base. The first shot hit the base of the turret.

Who knew that Tali and Cortana would get along? The two weren't exactly best friends or anything, but at least they weren't glaring at each other behind each other's backs. Shepard walked out of the elevator and headed towards the CIC.

Shepard leapt into action as soon as the drop shield was gone. He ran forward and shot one of the six geth troopers in the head with a shotgun. The geth trooper fell to the ground, and Shepard turned to the one next to it. He fired another round that knocked the geth trooper onto the ground. He then used biotic slam to finish off the geth. He turned around, and he saw two of the four geth troopers standing together.
"Perfect" Shepard thought to himself as he glowed blue once more
The two geth troopers didn't have time to react. Shepard smashed the two with a biotic shockwave. The other two geth troopers tried to attack, but Shepard used biotic charge on one of them. The force of the charge and one ton of MJOLNIR Mark VI armor completely destroyed the trooper. The last trooper was knocked onto its back, and Shepard finished it off with another shotgun shell.

That you might see my eyes -
At a breakfast of baked sunlight,
Filling and spilling,
As photons in rage;
Aging us one day at a time,
One cell at a time,
Split, one at a time -
Til we're glowing with growing
As stars feeding stars,
Our bones aching with breaking
To keep up with our hearts.
Pulling pairs of pulses dictate
Chemical vehicles, blind interstate,
And you, just as bright
In the dark as the light.
Not passively, as some stars
Who simply twinkle with the menial -
Instead, bursting; beating close,
Smiling easy with eyes closed.
With what tools would I be suited
To extract you?
Stolen, as only human thoughts can steal -
Separate, as we were built to feel -
Some silly certainty that
Our disparateness is real.
But no, not us,
We seem to know better:
Wrapped up in a feeling resembling forever.
So close, as to become unintelligible;
As given as your breath in my lungs.
As trippingly as the love songs being sung,
Ecstatic and free
From the tips of our tongues.

Oh here I am standing,
A lost soul is landing.
The coldest December,
Can you still remember?
Do you even hear me?
There's no one around me!
Oh shadow that I see,
The void right behind me.
Yet still I am breathing;
Yet still I am feeling.
The coldest sensation,
Oh worthless creation!
Are you still crying?
Oh why are you lying - abandoned and cold
Cold like what was left of soul,
Made of all the life you stole.
Walk divine but made of sin,
Worm of hatred squrim within.
Sin of lust and sin of pride,
Lash the tongue that last has lied.
Yours was silver with a promise,
Kiss of death and then you vomit.
Burning bile of ugly treason,
No one else can know the reason.
Left a soul behind to burn;
You are the reason I have turned...
On this cold and endless night...
When I'm finally pierced by the light...
And I awaken from this hell...
ALONE - BUT ALIVE!
Alive and again oh do I dare?
To give this heart and to lay it bare.
When heaven cast its fate

There were many legends surrounding the mysterious space known as the Orokin Void. My fellow Tenno had told me of whispers from behind the walls, images and apparitions that called out to them. A strange tune that played in hallways after all the lights were destroyed…
I never believed in any of them to be honest. After all, what was there in the known universe that was capable of even harming a properly skilled Tenno? We were warriors, the Orokin Elite, to believe otherwise seemed silly to me, or at least, that’s what I used to think.

THE KNIGHT FINDS himself running through the ancient corridors of the Kardian basilica. He can hear the echoing cackle of the Graven Witches as they swoop down and swipe at him with their bird-like talons. The Knight is panting and he does not see a way out of this maze. In his hands, he holds a precious crystal that once belonged to his Lord, Magtherion D'Legato, a well-respected aristocrat from the City of Bandine. The Knight is out of options and though the Gods may damn him for breaking his vows, survival becomes his priority. He opens a wound in his chest, quickly carving a hold large enough for the crystal and ignores the fiery pain and gushing fountain of blood that is sprayed over the ground by the force of his rapidly beating heart. In desperation, the Knight slams the crystal shard into his wound and immediately loses consciousness.

There are many bards who can tell you tales
Of the creeping shadows that come at night
We've seen them crawling along the walls
In the absence of the light...
On the darkest of nights, cold and chill
You can hear them quietly gibbering.
They speak of things that you cannot know
Which is why they are always whispering.
It is said that they will know the future
and that they know the fate of every man
They are here to watch his path unfold
or perhaps to have him damned...
These sick and twisted animals
Bear a stench that is rather foul
But you will only smell this scent
if they choose to remove their cowl
It is said that their eyes are like obsidian doorways;
Which hold the key to the depths of the mind.
But none have the courage to look within them;
Afraid of what they'll find...
So my only advice to the weary traveller
Is to believe in the safety of the tavern
Do not look toward the darkest of corners
or you might just stir their cavern...

You amputate someone the moment you think they've gone bad.

Ah, but he had! He had gone against his master's commands! Not directly, of course, but his master would never have allowed himself to find the Worker! Never! Oh dear. Oh dear oh dear. He was afraid. Every time his master was reborn, the vile evil returned. The vile.
Now it was coming back faster: he could see it. His master took every wrong turn. He was deliberately searching for the vile evil. But why? Why would he? Was it his old instincts? Why would he want to become the vile evil?
Or maybe he didn't. Oh no. What if he didn't?!
He crept along the passageway, keeping an eye out for his master. Oh dear. Not down there, he prayed. Not down there.
His master walked down the steps, down into the tomb. He was dressed as th
Return - Infinity Blade IIIFar away from the citadel, away from the daerils that lazed in the burning sun and ran sweaty hands over their weapons, through the perilous pass through the mountains, were several fields: verdurous grass and tawny crops that rippled and shimmered in the cool wind. A river from the mountains sloshed past the fields, descending into the valley and sprinkling the nearby vegetation with white specks. There was a waterfall, and beyond it a secluded cave, of which housed the skeleton of a giant monstrosity.Return - Infinity Blade III in Short Stories More Like This
The sound of the river was accompanied by the chirping of crickets and soft whoosh of the crops being cut and falling into piles. The strands were gathered together and bundled tightly by rope, and then stacked onto a cart. They would be divided back at the citadel; half would go towards the daerils to be ground into flour and made into food, and the other half would be shipped to the east to feed the hungry people of Lantimor. This nifty source of income had no expense on t
Limits on the Limitless - Part 2 of 2Hundreds of years later, the Bloodline continued to fight the God King, still attempting to restore a peaceful reign to the people of Lantimor. The God King's servant, a Devoted, had led Archarin to the stairs underneath the atrium. The Infinity Blade activated the pedestal he'd seen, and a huge set of doors opened for him. He stayed in the darkness for centuries, taught how to operate mechanics, studying the history of the Deathless, answering the God King's call without flaw. Knights traversed the castle but fell to the God King's hand; Archarin wondered whether the Deathless offered them a choice.Limits on the Limitless - Part 2 of 2 in Short Stories More Like This
He was working on a project, one that would prove him to be both skilled in mechanics and swordsmanship. He called it: Zero Mech. The design was complex and the machine reminded him of an animal he'd once seen before munching on bamboo reeds. He made it so that he would be able to climb in and pilot it from the inside, acting as a puppeteer to guide the Zero Mech. Banging and the clatterin

A gut feeling told him he had to stop getting wasted.
He lifted his head off the seat and rubbed his face vigorously. What had happened? His head was pounding relentlessly, feeling as though someone had shoved a broken glass bottle into the side of it. His mouth was dry and tasted of vomit. His hands were clammy. Sighing exasperatedly, he rolled his shoulders and neck, an ache already developing. He tried to remember what had happened last night, and failed. The table next to him was surprisingly clean - the floor beneath it, however, was not. Dozens of empty beer bottles and toppled shot glasses littered the dark floorboards. His stomach contracted, and for a moment he thought he would be sick again, but then the sensation passed.
"You conscious?" a feminine voice sneered, ear-piercingly loud. Ausar glanced at the bar and grimaced. Saydhi
Infinity Blade II - Salvation - Part TwoSaranthia had once been great, prosperous, thriving. He cursed himself again. He'd known some in Drem's Maw who had longed for the immortality that only the Deathless possessed. When he'd been Siris - not Ausar, not a Deathless with a forgotten history - he had always fought for his life. Now it no longer mattered; he could be reborn countless times, and each time, though he had to endure the Dark Thoughts, he felt practically no different. These fragments of his memory, depicting the rejoicing mortals - they had known their lives were going to end, but it didn't matter for them either. They lived their lives to the maximum. That's what he had wanted to do, too. However, he had a lifetime - no, thousands of lifetimes - to do anything he wanted at a leisurely pace.Infinity Blade II - Salvation - Part Two in Short Stories More Like This
Across the courtyard, a hulking brute waited for his signal. If Siris presented himself forward, no doubt it would bound over the statue in the centre and a duel would begin. The statue, showing a man slaying some sort of hug
Limits on the Limitless - Part 1 of 2For hundreds of years, the Bloodline would confront the God King and attempt to restore a peaceful reign to the people of Lantimor. He would hike from his hometown to the God King's palace, taking his father's armour and weapons with him. And then the words would be spoken, on the rocky ledge facing the palace:Limits on the Limitless - Part 1 of 2 in Short Stories More Like This
"Father, I will avenge you."
It never occurred to anyone that the prospect of sending one lineage out was not only futile but stupid too. The people were keen to show their rebellion against the God King; no matter what it gained, they sent out the next in line without a second thought.
What if he doesn't have a child? Archarin thought angrily, walking towards a daeril wearing a severed horse's head. What would happen to the Bloodline then?
He unsheathed his father's- no, his sword, and settled into the opening stance of the Aegis forms. The daeril roared in approval and adjusted the shield on its arm. A few seconds passed, but Archarin dutifully waited for the first move

Jerking his head left and right, he feels the energy within his core, pulsating to sustain his sleek metal body, and a stream of flexing electricity churns from the glowing filaments connected from the deadminds to his nape. He is alive. Of course, technically speaking, he has no life, but if the cardio-electromagnet were a heart, he is certain he could be classified as alive.
The darkness of the chamber is brightened only by the white mirrors that flash strings of numbers and occasionally display images of his internal components. He watches as suddenly hands appear to hold his head, tilting it towards a lamp that used to be situated behind him. The light causes his synthetic retinas to shrink, and his sight adjusts to the intensity. Oth

The Worker showed no emotion as he stepped forward and threw the body down onto the floor.Anguish - Infinity Blade II ending in Short Stories More Like This
"I defeated Raidriar," he stated proudly, though his accomplishment was obvious. "He can take your place in this eternal prison."
He shuffled away from the God King; he could wake up at any moment and lash out. By keeping his distance, he would be able to roll out of the way if danger arose. Not that it mattered, with the Worker's power to disrupt any QIP to permanently kill any Deathless.
"Excellent!" the Worker exclaimed. Siris heard traces of surprise and amusement in his tone. The Worker chuckled, his head shuddering at the motion. "It looks like he gave you quite a fight." He stood up to stretch his legs, and began to walk slowly towards the platform. "Quickly,
