Bioware owns these characters and Mass Effect
Captain Reynolds, commanding officer of the SSV Nightingale, was having the worst day of his life. The war was over and that meant that for most of the Alliance the worst part was over. But for the medical professionals from every race in the galaxy that ran the forty seven hospital ships of Task Force Haven, the truly horrific work started now. Caring for the wounded, disfigured and dying was a thankless job that would continue for the next several decades.
He was ready for that, trained for it and planned on it. What he did not expect was the parade of VIPs trying to get access to his med-bays. Access to Shepard. He was even given a lengthy list of peo

Earth, High Orbit:
The Destiny Ascension hung in space, closely guarding the SSV Nightingale. Her captain, Matriarch Lidanya stood by the large viewing portal and watched the other ships arrayed close by. Dreadnaughts of several different designs all sat at station keeping, creating a wall around the diminutive Alliance hospital ship.
Two dreadnaughts from the Asari, Turian, Quarian and even the Batarian fleets had taken station within an hour of hearing that Commander Shepard was aboard and barely hanging on to life. It was a time honored show of respect and support from the spacefaring races in the galaxy. The SSV Beijing arrived and the SSV Houston had towed the SSV Normandy over near their little formation, also. Now ships from

She walked alone through the tall, wrought-iron gates as she had so many times before and into the lush, green reserve that bore the name Shepard's Park. The trees had grown so tall since the first time she came here. Back then they were just hastily planted saplings that only came up to her waist. Now they towered over her and shaded the people in the park from the hot afternoon sun. A light breeze stirred from the east and blew pleasantly in and around the trees rustling the leaves and branches. Liara couldn't help but smile as the cool breeze caressed her skin as she strolled towards the center of the sprawling park to the only building, the only construct on the three hundred acre lot.
Here and there people enjoyed the beautiful weather playing games, walking among the trees or having picnics as chirping birds looked down from the branches and dogs frolicked in the grass. Many took notice of her, bein

Eden Prime, 17 years after the destruction of the Reapers:
Ambassador Liara T'Soni-Shepard returned home and started preparing some after-school snacks for her children without even changing out of the traditional pure white with gold trim dress she wore to official functions.
Liara was happy and occasionally caught herself staring out the sliding kitchen doors that opened to the huge porch that over looked the big back yard which ended at the shores of the crystal clear glacial lake. A lake named Lake Shepard, much to her husband's chagrin. On the other side of the lake snow-capped mountains towered over everything, reaching into the clear, azure sky. It was breath-taking.
Her lithe figure moved gracefully around the kitchen as she gathered items and mentally ticked off nutritional values. She loved it when she got home in time to do this, but her duties usually held her

The mansion and its few guest bungalows sat under the cloudless azure sky high in the Athame Mountains. Surrounded by fresh snow, crisp, biting air and the calm serenity craved by people who lived a hard life, fought every good fight, and now deserved peace, silence, and freedom.
The inside of the mansion was decorated in an earthy, yet elegant theme. A few pieces of art by the acclaimed artist Mira T'Soni-Shepard graced the walls along with pictures of all the girls and friends of the family, and the rest was homey, comfortable, and warm.
Since the children were mostly grown and off on their own, the mansion usually sat near empty save for the owners and a small staff to care for the sprawling complex. The only reasons the Shepards kept it was for when the kids visited on holidays, old friends stopped by, or for occasional diplomatic functions because Liara was the Thessian Ambassador to t

Her final defiant shout was lost as her world blossomed in beautiful, terrifying, all-consuming light and heat. She heard her flesh sizzling and searing and smelled the acrid stench of it even as she inhaled those hungry flames and felt the terrible intensity of the living fire within her breast. The agony crushed her physically and lit every nerve in hyper-sensitive torment as she felt herself picked up and thrown like so much trash across an endless expanse of forever.
It was her end. Again. Her last moments. Again.
A part of her absently recalled those thoughts of despair from before. Since her resurrection, she spent hours each day living in that memory of the woman who should be dead. They haunted her soul shadowing every act in her life with a reminder of impermanence, wrongness, time stolen and the cold touch of death on her heart.

Tears she did not feel flowed freely from her eyes trailing down her flushed cheeks and dripping off her chin. "No, no, no! Pleeeeease!"
For the last few hours, as Task Force Hammer assaulted the Reaper beam location in London, the Normandy was back in space helping destroy Reapers. Joker made the frigate dance between missiles and energy beams getting in close enough for the Thanix cannons to blast off large chunks of the monstrous ships.

She stood. Barely. Hunched over the wound which continued to gush crimson life from under her palm no matter how hard she pressed it or how terribly she scowled at it. The Carnifex in her right hand seemed a dead weight that pulled at her, trying to drag her to the ground. The burns, the wounds, the broken bones assaulted her being from every direction, but none compared to the pain in her soul. Her heart. Her being.
The choices loomed. Her last horizon. Her final port of call. One last impossible mission. Knowing it was nearly over was terrible bitter sweet relief crushing devastation of hope

Ashley sighed as she rolled and reached out for her wife, only to find cool sheets instead. She lay there listening for any movement, but silence filled the house. Throwing back the covers, she swung her legs off the bed and stood with a yawn. She checked the bathroom first, finding it empty, before heading to the other most likely place Jane would be, the nursery.
Walking the short distance down the hall, Ash stopped as she stepped through the doorway and just soaked in the scene before her, a loving smile on her face.
Moonlight flowed through the open curtains, bathing Jane and their infant son in the soft light. Both were fast asleep in a rocking chair with Jane's feet propped up on the window sill and Kaidan cuddled into her chest, his brown hair sticking out from his head at odd angles, with the Commander's arms wrapping him protectively even in sleep.

They were docked at the Citadel to get some upgrades and repairs for the Mako, after a rather unfortunate incident involving lava and Wrex driving. Everyone, minus the Commander and a certain Gunnery Chief, taking advantage of the rare chance to get off of the ship for a few days.

When they reached the miniature version of a Mass Relay, Shepard leaned against the guardrail and looked over at the massive lake below them. Ash dropped Jane’s hand, still standing in the middle of the walkway, and seemed to stare at some spot below them, an odd look on her face.
Shepard turned when Ashley let go and saw her staring, but when she tried to see what she was looking at, she didn’t see anything. Turning back, her head tilted to the side curiously, she asked, "What are you looking at Ash?"

Burying her head under a pillow, the Commander smiled when she heard an exasperated sigh.

Ever since she had met him, he had had a profound impact on her. She had thought about telling him how she felt, but knew he would find the thought of a relationship with a "primitive" revolting. Still, she enjoyed talking to him whenever possible.
As the door opened, the warrior she had found on Eden Prime was at his usual position, trying to wash his hands of the "mental residue" of his ship mates in the bath of strange, brown liquid before him.
