Shepard and her posse step in, weapons locked, but damn those bastards with swords! Shepard barely has time to maneuver out of his reach, but Nightwing succeeds in disarming her and lithely avoids James and EDI’s attacks. He kicks James in the head and knocks EDI back with an energy blast from his gauntlet and turns back on Shepard. He fails to notice the shadow behind him until it is too late. Thane attacks him barehanded, deftly snaking in and around the sword’s reach. “Shepard, the Council,” he breathes. “What?” Shepard asks absently, completely enraptured by the show. “Shepard!” Thane yells, trying to get her attention – but this momentary distraction is all Nightwing needs to break th rough... Then EDI shoots Nightwing. The end.
This is my mindspill. Mostly about comics, books, video games, movies of the science fiction and fantasy leanings. Sometimes recipes and parenting stuff will sneak in, along with a real world rant or two.
