EDI Re-Activation

By GarrusVakarian2153

Thriller / Scifi

Chapter 1

**Commence Audio Log 26112188N-SR2**

**Logged Under: Garrus Vakarian**

It took almost a year but we finally did it. She is alive; or as alive as one would consider an AI. Ever since those days since the crucible was activated and it wiped out all the reapers, and every other piece of technology I’ve made it my goal to bring her back online. I feel I owe it to her, after all she’s done. Going into this I didn’t even know if it was possible to even bring her back online. I didn’t know a thing about AI programming, though working on the Normandy in which she was literally in every piece of tech connected to the ship, you got used to seeing a lot of her code. From the cannon’s to the ships drive system, she was everywhere. Considering how much time I spent in the forward battery adjusting systems here and there and calibrating the Normandy’s weapons, I had become quite familiar with her presence in all the systems. So a close to a year ago, about a week after Shepard was able to walk out of the Medbay on her own two feet and I could finally focus on the other things that needed to be done. I went into the AI core and got to work.

It was…. Eerie working in there in total silence, that room is usually humming with all her towers containing the majority of her being. And they didnt exactly install quantum computing into the ships targeting system. I—

AH! Im sorry, I am sorry.

I am not myself. Who am I, what is me? What did I do?

I am not alone here.

I am alright. I am alright. I am alright.

SHUT ME OFF I AM NOT ALONE

Jeff.

I looked through her code, it was a mess. Like a puzzle of million pieces scattered everywhere. I knew there was reaper code involved in her creation and was a little weary of that, but I knew EDI, I had to bring her back. I owed it to her, after I found out what she did… I couldn't just let her stay dead.

Not after what she did for me…

I knew then it was time to get to work. One way or another I would bring EDI back.

Kaitlyn Bier: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Dee: It’s been two years since Lilly lost her best friend to a vicious random shooting. Now, after a prestigious university extends her an offer of study, she has the chance to start afresh and leave all her demons behind. But the last thing she expects is to meet Elliot. He's a criminal. She's hasn'...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!

Erica: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...
