    Summary

    Thanatos takes him away when he can. Not far and not for long, of course, but together they venture into the Underworld, seeing the domain that is Zagreus’ by birthright and yet is unfamiliar to him as the moon. He has to work twice as hard to allow for the respites and, while he doesn’t particularly enjoy the feeling of eternally playing catch-up, he suffers it for Zagreus’ sake.

    He would suffer many things to bring Zagreus a measure of peace, he thinks.

    -

    Where Thanatos keeps stealing Zagreus away for short trips around the Underworld, against his own better judgement.

    Summary

    Shepard figures out how to do a biotic charge. Garrus is just trying to keep up.
    ~
    “Hey, it could work,” she retorted, “You’re just jealous I could be a human gun and bullet. And you’ll never get to fire me.”

    “I like being able to aim my shots,” he replied, “And could work. It could burn you to a crisp. Any idea the average temperature of a slug leaving the barrel?” His voice was punctuated by gunshots. Nadia checked her HUD and counted three LOKI mechs out of his line of sight, stacked up on each other and practically begging to be disassembled with prejudice.

    She rolled her shoulders.

    “Let’s find out.”

    Summary

    He had asked her if she was ready to be a one-turian kind of woman – spirits, he’d rehearsed what he wanted to say to her over and over, making sure that he got it exactly right. He so often stumbled over his words when he was talking to her, even now. She just laughed and smiled at him and said she didn’t care, but this had been so important. He’d wanted to get it right.

    Then she had said she loved him, which was what he had been hoping she would say, and he –

    He stopped in his tracks.

    He hadn’t said it back.

    He hadn’t said it back.

    How do you think Garrus learned that dance from the Citadel DLC? More vids? I have a better idea.

    Summary

    “You like hurting people,” Washington repeats.

    “Uh, yeah.” It's an easy answer because it's not a lie.

    “But did you like hurting Locus?” Washington asks.

    Felix blinks. He opens his mouth to say ‘yes,’ but the word sticks in his throat. That question, surprisingly, does not have such an easy answer.
