Age of Rebirth part 1
As always, Skyrim punished its children with another freezing night. Soon the winter would come and even The Reach would be covered with snow. But that didn't worry Delphine. As remote as the Sky Haven Temple was, the surrounding mountains provided strong protection from the icy winds and snowstorms. It was the food stocks that they would have to be careful with.
She had seen some rabbits strolling around the courtyard few days ago, but other than that, it seemed that the animals had started to depart for more secure lands. After the snow had fallen it'd be difficult to find quarry, let alone chase it. The supplies they had stored inside the temple would last couple of months, the winter at least four. They'd have to start stocking up pretty soon. Hopefully their gold would be enough; Markath had started to become an expensive city lately. No doubt the Silver-Bloods should be thanked for that.
But as harsh as the night was, Delphine only had to look up to see the more gentle side of Sk

"Are you sure you're not overdoing it?"
"Just one more lap, then I'll stop."
Shepard wiped some sweat from her forehead and proceeded to walk across the room once again. Her steps were shaky, and her pace agonizingly slow, but at least she was finally walking.
She walked forward carefully, leaning onto the crutches and moving them forward a bit by bit. There could be no rush. Even though Shepard was wearing leg braces, her steps were still heavy and her balance feeble at best. If she would go too fast she'd surely fall on her onto the floor, not a preferable position for her.
She sat onto the bed, panting heavily. That was the twentysixth exercise routine she had done today. It would've been nice to be able to recover in peace, but unfortunately Shepard didn't have that luxury. The memorial service was in just under two weeks, and she sure as hell wouldn't walk in front of the galaxy with crutches under her arms. She would walk with her own feet, even with the braces on if she'd have t

The following day, just as Liara had anticipated, the doctors arrived. Like a group of flies they swarmed around Shepard, reading measurements, giving shots, unplugging and re-plugging all kinds of cords and just making Shepard feel as uncomfortable as possible.
"Is, ouch, is this all really necessary, ouch!" Shepard asked as she was getting her final shots.
"It is", one of the Salarian doctors replied, "The worse has passed, but there is still a lot of recovery left for you Commander. We've already reconstructed your damaged muscle tissue from scratch, healed your broken bones, skull and spine, healed the numerous open wounds all around your body and treated your nervous system from the trauma inflicted on it. We even used some Asari mind melding to ease any psychological trauma the incident might've inflicted on you."
Shepard turned her eyes to Liara sitting at the corner of the room. She had a mischievous expression on her face, which Shepard couldn't quite read. She'd have to ask a

For a long time Shepard felt nothing at all. Or that's what she thought at least; in truth time had already lost its meaning to her. It could've been hours, or entire days, that didn't really seem to matter. So for the time being, she just was, not sure of what was happening around her or where she was. Then, little by little, she became to feel things.
At first there was the overwhelming feeling of comfort. It was over, for real this time. She had finally done it, they were all safe now. No need to worry about anything anymore. And there was no pain anymore either, no fear and no rush. After all that, everything was finally well. That's what she felt, and she spent a long time being lost in that feeling.
Then bigger things started to fill her mind; thoughts and questions. Had she gotten out of the Crucible? Would she be okay? She felt okay at least. She was alive, that was for sure. She had died before, and it hadn't been like this. Close, but not like this.
So where was she? Well, if

"What THE FUCK was that?!"
Shepard opened her eyes. How could someone No she was still alone in the Citadel; the voice came from her headpiece. What's more, she recognized that voice.
"That's the most pathetic fucking thing I've ever heard from you! Don't think you can just leave us after all this, because you can't! Stand up and fucking FIGHT!"
"What happened Shepard, did your quad drop off?"
"I've seen you come back from the void, yet NOW you're willing to give up, after we finally won? That's not the Shepard I knew!"
Shepard moaned, she might've lost her consciousness for a while, but the pain hadn't gone anywhere. She truly needed rest; she needed the pain to go away again. But she couldn't ignore the words of her friends. She never could.
"Shepard, please "
"Please don't leave us, not yet! I don't want to lose you again, not when we could finally We could finally be together!"
The room shook again, making Shepard's pain eve

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
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
