The retrofitting of the Endurance had taken two days, and while Elias, Sync and Drimi had worked on those, …

Mass Effect Collision – Chapter 13: Peanut Butter and Chocolate






Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love – Charles M. Schulz Anar was in the cargo hold, talking to Drimi about invading the asari’s space when Sync’s voice came across the PA system. “Ladies, Gentlemen and Anar, we have arrived in the universe of Synthetic Destruction,” Sync said. “We really …

Mass Effect Chapter 11: Alcohol+Hanar=






“I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.” – Hunter S. Thompson Anar took a swig from his fourth beer and wrestled with a chip packet.

Anima: The Marque’s Manor






“So, he knows we’re coming,” Tebryn said, as they walked along the road that led up to the Marque’s manor. They had exited the forest and crossed the fields of cabbages and potatoes that filled most of the island, and the gravel road left them all feeling a little exposed. “Apparently,” Max said. “Right, right,” …

Anima: Her






The soft snick of turning ivory cylinders rang loud in the silence of the cathedral. “Would you mind not staring so hard?” Tebryn asked, the tip of his tongue sticking out the side of his mouth as he delicately turned the tumblers. “You’ll bore holes in me with your eyes soon enough.” “Get on with …

Anima: Allette






“Did you find anything?” Catherine asked, calling down from the top of the cliff as they made their way out of the ship. “Not sure,” Tebryn called back before anyone else could answer. “Tell you when we get up there.” Keith was first up the rope, scrambling up the rocks to the grassy top in …

Drimi (Mass Effect Collision, Chapter 10)






Gunnedah Hospital was a private hospital in Zakera Ward that had been little more than a human clinic before the war, and had been the recipient of a good portion of charity money raised for the fight against the reapers at that time. Much of the money that had come in after the attack on …

The Endurance (Mass Effect Collision, Chapter 9)






The ship was…new. And kind of shiny, with a sleek, dark finish that bore no notable markings. It was modern. Ultra-modern, even… “She’s a prototype,” Sync said as he ushered them up the central ramp and into the fairly impersonal central area. “Bedrooms aft, pick one just…stay out of the locked one please.
