Honour the Chapter, honour the Emperor, honour the Imperium. Easy oaths to keep when in a world you can understand. Far, far harder, when a place steeped in heresy calls for aid and duty forces your hand to answer.

I Should Go
by Nevery reviews
Speeches, farewells, denials, howls of grief and of rage. Those that knew Shepard in life remember the Commander in death. Shepard's gender and any interpretations of romance are intentionally ambiguous and left up to you. Disclaimer: Reading these shorts whilst listening to "An End for Once and For All" carries with it a heavy risk of tears.
