I’m terrified that Renee’s going to leave me any day over some late-night drunken message.
You almost broke me, you bastard, and I never quite healed right. If I hadn’t found Renee I think I really would have lost it.

Quarians scare the hell out of me. Milo’s not really any different. Well, maybe a little. I still don’t know what he looks like behind that mask and I really, really don’t want to know. He’s a good shot, and I’m glad to fight alongside him, but still.
Scares the hell out of me. I don’t know what scares me worse: the idea of sneezing on him by accident and he croaks, or him sneezing on ME and I come down with something.

Daniel knelt next to Mason. ‘Come on, stay with me.’
Mason muttered something unintelligible. Daniel pried off the shattered remains of his faceplate and leaned in. He still couldn’t understand. He switched to his helmet mic and called again for a medic.
Mason pawed at the air with one hand, reaching up blindly. Daniel grabbed it and with his free hand pulled off his own helmet. ‘Shh. I’m here.’
Mason’s lips moved again. ‘…don’t … don’t go.’
Daniel smiled and shook his head. ‘I’m not going anywhere. And neither are you.’
Mason’s labored breathing suddenly eased. His eyes focused on Daniel’s face and he pried his hand free to touch it. ‘Yes,’ he breathed out. Daniel opened his mouth to ask, and Mason’s fingers stopped him. ‘Shh. Shut up, Zain. I said yes.’
Mason’s hand fell limp on the ground, the light gone.
The look on Zain’s face was almost too much. Daniel didn’t even have to tell him Mason was gone, and the way his face crumbled crushed him.
‘I uh. Wanted to tell you. Right before he — right before, he said “yes”. He thought I was you.’

The night you came in and convinced me to tear up the transfer request I was going to bring to Tatsu, I would have slept with you if you’d stayed. I didn’t ask because I knew it would be too awkward.
I probably still would too, if I knew it wouldn’t be horribly awkward afterward.

*whispered* Mason. She’s here. Renee. She’s alive, she’s right here. She’s sleeping, that’s why I’m whispering. She’s … she’s right here, and she’s … she’s safe, and … *sniffle*
It was supposed to be a surprise. I wasn’t gonna tell you. But you have to know. You … *sniff* you deserve to know.
Shh, shh gorgeous, go back to sleep. I’m right here.

> ((Good thing these records were destroyed… Daniel’s journal on Phoenix One))
I’m putting in a transfer request to Tatsu tomorrow.
I can’t do this. I tried. I tried so hard. It took a couple days for it to really hit, and it’s only been getting worse. I told Tatsu I could handle it.
I lied. I can’t look him in the eye. I can’t stand being near him. Every time I get a whiff of cologne my throat seizes up. I can tell when he’s coming down the hall without looking, and I keep wanting to turn and say hello.
I told him I was okay. The idiot believed me. I’m not okay, I’ll never be okay as long as I have to sit here and look at him every day and smell his cologne and hear his voice and know he’s just a few doors down, probably laughing and chatting away like the last year meant nothing.
I’m putting that paperwork in first thing tomorrow morning. I think I have a shot with the 10 if I’m lucky. At least it’ll be over quick.

> A journal entry about Ben
One of the new Phoenixes worries me. A lot. I’ve been keeping my eye on him ever since he showed up a week ago and every time he so much as twitches an alarm goes off in my head.
He’s happy. Too happy. Ridiculously happy, over everything. If someone asks him to do something, he throws himself into it without hesitation. He eats like he’s never seen food before. I have plenty enough questions about Cerberus’ practices but Ben’s behavior is adding a few more to the list. I can’t help wondering what the hell they did to him to make him so ecstatic about the library.
There’s times where I just want to hug the kid until the haunted look behind his smile goes away. Tell him that he’s among friends now and he can stop worrying about whatever’s lurking in the back of his mind. Instead I’ve tried to SHOW him by making it a point to spend time with him, take him around the station. We made a game out of seeing how fast we could chow down a protein bar without drinking any water first. Kid almost beat me too.
He’s a slippery one in the training rooms, too. We had an obstacle course set up for the new guys to show off a few non-biotic skills and I swear Ben moves like a little cat. I was concerned that his small size would hinder his ability, but after watching him in training I’d put money on him being able to top my scores in simulations within a year. It would hurt my pride if he weren’t so likeable.
I like this kid. He’ll do well here. I’m not excited by the prospect of him attending his first baiting party though. Either they’ll think he’s a joke or the best ‘toy’ they’ve seen yet. Neither one appeals much and I don’t think I have enough clout to keep them away from him.
I still just want to give the little cat a hug. He’ll have a good family here, I only hope he sees that before … I don’t know what, but I want him to see us as a family before it happens.

> A journal entry about Mason
I hate physical therapy. Before the surgeries I could run a mile in five minutes, no sweat. Now I’m lucky if I can shuffle down the hall in five minutes, and it tires me out, and the stupid nurses just give me this sugary-sweet ‘Oh you’re doing so well!’ like I’m some kind of invalid.
I thought Cerberus was supposed to make me stronger. Not weaker.
That wasn’t fair. The nurses aren’t stupid, and Cerberus is making me stronger. It just takes time. It’ll be worth it. I just know it. Humanity is not popular in the galaxy and there are way too many aliens out there who would love nothing more than to see the planets we’ve colonized handed over to them on a silver platter. In the case of the batarians, it’s even worse.
That’s what I’m trying to explain to this kid. (Kid. He’s the same age as me, or close enough. We’re both kids playing at being grown-ups, trying to impress our sometimes overbearing parents so they’ll finally be proud of us.) Mason’s a nice guy, from Earth. Maybe that’s why he doesn’t get why Cerberus is so important, why he seems so naive about everything. I grew up on a tiny colony in the middle of the Terminus — I’ve seen, first-hand, what batarians will do if there’s nobody around to fight them. I’ve seen the dirty looks humans get from a turian. Those lizards still aren’t over the war. Somebody has to fight for humanity. Someone has to watch humanity’s back and fight the battles the army and the navy can’t (or won’t).
But sometimes I wonder if Mason’s the one who’s right in all this. He says there’s no way Cerberus is the nice-guy organization I’ve been saying they are. He’s dead certain there’s a horrible price to be paid, that they’re spying on Parliament, that they’re responsible for some pretty horrible things. I can’t look them up from here because they’ve got some tight restrictions on extranet access, but I do wonder sometimes.
It can’t be as bad as Mason says. They’ve already sunk a million credits into us here, maybe more. Why else would they be doing this if they weren’t trying to help humanity?
Now I’m second-guessing myself again. This is what happens when I let myself sit around too long during the day. I don’t have enough to do so I go a little stir-crazy.
I like Mason. He’s fun. Maybe a little too serious sometimes. I gotta work on that. His room’s next to mine, I’m sure I can think of something amusing to keep him on his toes. He needs to laugh more.
Leave a ☱ in my askbox for an entry that’s about you.
THIS IS ONE OF THE FUNNIEST THINGS I HAVE SEEN ALL DAY
Last gif is definitely: “Oh god, I’m still on this set. I dream of the day when I can play a rugged homosexual angel-loving demon-hunting Ken doll.”
it’s like his only expression is “jfc”
OH MY GOD I KNOW I REALLY DO REMEMBER HIM NOW. … … …. I used to watch DOOL. ;_;
Poor little Daniel. He hated those first investor parties SO much and he still wasn’t sure what the hell he was doing…
