Mass Effect 3 alternate ending Awakening part 14
Shepard jumped out of the way just in time to avoid another shot, which hit the floor behind her, leaving behind a man-size hole. She landed on her side on the floor, feeling the pain sweeping through her entire body. It was getting too intense, she couldn't take much more. Her hands and feet were heavy and aching more and more, and she couldn't move without feeling an excruciating pain in her back. Not to mention, the shots were getting more powerful, had that one hit her, she'd be gone already.
"This weapon is a Reaper design; as effective as a missile launcher, but no larger than an ordinary rifle, just another advantage that their technology has given us", Shepard heard the Illusive Man speak as she crouched behind cover. All around them the Reapers holograms were disappearing, vanishing as the Crucible removed their programs from existence.
"We're this close to defeating the Reapers, you can't ruin this now!" Shepard yelled while she reloaded her gun. Too bad the Reaper

A flash of light, one brighter than anything else, surrounded Shepard.
Her body felt like being twisted and squashed as it travelled through thousands of kilometers of space in a few seconds. It wasn't at all like making the jump with a ship.
The light disappeared and the relay released its hold of Shepard. She couldn't find her balance in time, and fell down to the hard, cold surface in front of her. She groaned, but lifted herself immediately back up. This was no time for rest. As she rose up, Shepard looked around. She was definitely in the Citadel. She recognized the material used for the walls and the ceiling, stuff so strong it had been used to build both the Citadel and the mass relays. And despite being millions of years old, it still shined bright and clean.
Shepard looked around. She was in a long corridor of some kind, a place she definitely hadn't visited before. The walls were bare, but glowed with

The soldier on the right took a step forward. Shepard looked at him terrified. She tried to move, to get up, to fight, but her legs wouldn't obey and her hands just kept shaking. She was too weak, her eyes barely stayed open. The man lifted the gun from his side and pointed it at Shepard. She could see the darkness inside the barrel staring back. Shepard looked at the man; there was no sign of remorse. He was going to do it.
"Move damnit, move!"
The soldier fell down, blood squirting through his helmet. The other two turned their backs to Shepard and pointed their guns to the distance. A set of gunshots echoed and a burst of bullets pierced the marines. They dropped to the ground, armors soiled with blood.
Shepard could hear someone running towards herself. Suddenly A pair of boots appeared before her, ones that had been bathed in mud and blood.
"Get up Shepard!"
"Anderson?!" Shepard whispered. She fe

Harbinger marched forward, swiftly and threateningly like a giant warship sailing right at them. It did not seem to mind the projectiles sinking into its body. The air was filled with missiles and rockets, deadly fireflies flying right at the Reaper. The noise they made was ungodly; it was like being in the middle of a thunderstorm. But the Reaper did not back down, not even by a single step.
"It's not slowing down Shepard!" yelled Ashley as she reloaded her missile launcher, "What'll we do?"
"Just keep firing!" replied Shepard as she took another shot. The missile launched through the air right at the Harbinger's giant body. Shepard didn't stay still to admire her shot, but instead fired four more missiles at the Reaper. One good thing about the giant creatures was that they made a pretty big target. That didn't really help much, but at least it meant that there was still something positive about the situation.
Shepard ducked behind a cover again to reload, "This is all we

"Get that thing off our asses!"
Shepard took a sharp turn behind another building and stepped on the gas. She could hear a high pitched sound as the Reaper's beam hit the building right behind them. The ground shook as the monster stepped forward, casing after Shepard.
"We're trying!" Anderson yelled, "The damn thing keeps ignoring us!"
"Aim for the eye!" Shepard screamed as she made another sharp turn.
Shepard turned the car again. She could now see the Reaper at their left side, looking for them. This one was smaller than the one she had taken down at Rannoch, but it was definitely no less menacing. The black figure easily topped the few buildings that were still standing, and moved forward effortlessly, while shaking the ground with its steps. And just as easily it could destroy everything it looked at. It was a being that seemed to spread fear just by being alive. It only existed to destroy, to kill, and it had been doing that for millions of years. In f
The greatest miracle on EarthThe universe was born 13,8 billion years ago. A reality, that might not have been, was. In a place where shouldn't have been anything, was something. The mater of the entire universe was packed into one infinitely dense point, the singularity.
The expansion of the singularity caused the Big Bang. That single point gave birth to time, space, mater and energy. And for some reason that what was, kept on being. The world didn't collapse or shred to tears, it was in harmony. There was a perfect balance between everything that existed.
During billions of years matter kept travelling in a universe which had the exact conditions to allow the birth of atoms. Gravity kept pulling matter together. One atom at a time, after billions of years asteroids, planets, stars, solar systems and galaxies were born.
On so it happened that one galaxy had a solar system which had a zone able to support life. Not only was it in a right zone, but it had an atmosphere, a protective magnetic field and

The sky was dark, filled with smoke. Sun was nowhere to be seen and it was the burning cities that colored the clouds with orange light. The only sounds that could be heard were the sounds of war. That's all that was left of Earths clear blue skies and cities filled with life. These kinds of thoughts didn't usually enter Shepard's mind, but right now as she walked towards Anderson and the fighting vehicles, she found herself reminiscing the past.
Anderson trolled around one of the vehicles, scanning it with his omnitool. There were a total of five vehicles standing in a formation in the middle of the street. Three of these were carrying missiles. Finally Anderson seemed satisfied and pointed one of the nearby Turian soldiers to get inside the car. Then, he turned to Shepard.
"Everything ready?" Anderson asked.
"Yes", Shepard replied, "We're ready; just tell us what to do."
"Very well", Anderson said and pointed the vehicle in the middle of the formation, "You an

"How are you holding up Commander?" Joker asked.
"Fine", Shepard replied. She honestly felt better than in a long time, perhaps the nap in the car had something to do with it. And there weren't any nightmares this time, guess that was a good sign.
"How about you and EDI?"
"We're doing okay, though things have gotten pretty rough up here. You know, turbulence, heavy traffic, giant ass Reapers trying to blow us into pieces."
"I believe that was a joke", EDI interrupted.
"Nice to hear from you too EDI", Shepard spoke, "How's the Normandy doing?"
"We are currently filling our fuel tanks and loading our heavy weapon systems. Normandy has taken a lot of fire, but so far our shielding has been efficient and no critical damage has been done."
"My mobile platform survived mostly undamaged and has been able to provide vital support to our troops on multiple occasions. This has been possible in no small part thanks to Mister Vega."
"It's a good thing you're helping out each oth

One of the husks, a human, was closing in on Shepard from the right. She shot four bullets into its body. The husk took two steps and fell down on to the ground. Another one managed to creep behind her, but got shot down by Garrus. A long time ago Shepard would've doubted before pulling the trigger, but no more. She had killed so many of these beings by now that she had almost forgotten that they were once human. Another husk got within an arm's length from Shepard. She impaled it with her omni-blade and proceeded to evaluate their situation.
They had split into two teams; the Cerberus troops were protecting the vehicle while Shepard and the others were trying to lure the husks away. So far they had been doing a pretty good job. A nearby fallen bridge provided a good cover for them and they weren't going to run out thermal clips anytime soon. Still, the car was moving painfully slowly and there seemed to be no end to the waves of husks. Every missed bullet gave the hu
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
IowaIf you visit Iowa,
you'll call her fields empty,
but she wasn't born that way.
A part of her was carved out
when she was ripped between Virginia
and the purple mountains of New Mexico.
Her gold hair, she tore it out when she realized
it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
But Earth can't compare to the country.
That's my girl.
Full grown even when harvesting season's j
