In The Land Of Ever - Ch. 4A flicker in the distance drew his lingering eyes away from Morrigan's backside. Every stride brought the faint light into view, something obscured it but it wasn't long before the tiny flames were visible. A figure sat hunched in front of it, rocking back and forth to a noiseless rhythm.More Like This
Morrigan's pace dropped considerably, despite all their time travelling together on foot across the face of Ferelden he had never seen her carry herself so fleetly even when their party was chased by hordes of battle-eager Darkspawn minions. As he caught up to her side he saw relief wash over her countenance. Her calm demeanor returned as they strolled up to the meager encampment.
"Omen", she spoke aloud, addressing the hooded figure.
A low shushing noise was issued in reply.
"He's sleeping," Morrigan offered to The Warden.
"I find it is what children do best."
With a gentle gesture of her hand she bade her lover quiet as she drew up alongside the hunched form. The Warden simply watched on as the two
Intercept 6A“…So that’s how I ended up helping to clear rubble for a new landing area,” Vega waved his hand in a dismissive gesture as he finished his story. “No big deal.”More Like This
“Uh-huh,” Shepard said flatly and raised an eyebrow at him. “Vega, next time you try to prove the superiority of the Mako, maybe try doing something that doesn’t end with you trashing one.”
A smothered laugh, that was quickly turned into a cough, came from the wall where Kaidan was leaning. Shepard turned her best, stern, “Commander Look” on him but he didn’t even bother to try hiding the slight grin on his face.
“Sorry, Commander,” he said, not sounding sorry at all, “but listening to you give that advice? Even you have to admit it’s a bit… ironic, I guess.”
“I,” she replied loftily, “was not that bad. No matter what you and Tali have to say on

The war is over. The Reapers are dead. Now Shepard and Garrus have a chance to think about the future they want with their son.)
"I", Shepard thought, "hate sitting still". Especially when it was something that was being forced on her by outside circumstances. Yet, her she was, sitting cross legged on the floor of the apartment , back against the couch, with a baby sleeping sprawled across her legs. She sighed and looked down at her son. It really wasn't fair to blame her current mood on Aetius. Not like he was really forcing her to stay still. She could probably move him if she was careful; she'd done it before when he was napping and she needed to do something.
It was just that right now she didn't see the point of disturbing him even with all her restless energy. She really didn't have anything else to do. At least, nothing important
She shifted a little to stop her leg from falling asleep on her, but Aet
When It Raynes: Chapter One-AwakeningShepard let out a strangled cry of pain as she rolled off what she believed to be her bed onto what she thought was the floor. She screamed, her lungs burning for air. Shepard began inhaling and exhaling at a normal rate. Trying to force herself off her face, her muscles betrayed her, screaming at her with their soreness. She cried out again, but not in pain. In confusion.More Like This
"Where am I?!" she shouted, looking around. She was not in her cabin. She wasn't even on the fucking ship. She forced her way through her memories. And a million different things flashed through her mind. Things she knew were true, and things that felt like they should've been memories, but only passed as dreams.
She let out another confused cry. Forcing herself to ignore the pain, she rose up on her arms, fighting to sit. When the task was completed, she came face to face with a maroon skinned turian with elaborate white clan markings.
Her eyes grew wide and she kicked herself back away from him. This ear

Granted, it was fascinating to watch himbig claws and allwork so delicately on intricate machinery. He'd not only managed to get her working again, but he'd managed to make EDI giggle; even Rayne found herself laughing as well. She'd traveled to an alternate universe where humans were the dominant race of the galaxy and cruelly erased by synthetics. Then she was preserved so she could shepherd the primitives and hopefully end the brutal cycle of the Reapers. On top of it all, her turian was leading the primitives the way she had back where she came from.
It was awfully ironic that her badass turian sniper fiancé was p
