EDI Re-Activation

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.

What happened, you didn’t just rescue me, I am not alone here. Shut me off.

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

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.

Further Recommendations

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

cwoelk: I enjoyed reading this book, thought the characters were interesting, the premise exciting, and liked the happy ending.

Tanya Daigle Rusheon: This book is a long and twisty tale full of sweet romance, adorable fluff, anxiousness, trust issues, mind games, things that don't make sense until suddenly they do, heartache and reconciliation just when you need it the most. If that all sounds a bit vague, it's because I really don't want to s...

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

John Reed: Seadrias masterfully captures the impressiveness and complex scope that a science fiction novel should provide while carefully crafting an entire universe that will leave a reader in awe from start to finish. The only flaw I could find is that I wish I could have read more. This book is certainly...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to wordworrywill, author of Kings and Things, an otherwise imaginative tale set against the trappings of the royal set, but then again I don't imagine there'd be many authors who invoked the names of Oprah Winfrey, Vladimir Putin, Jeff Bezos, Beyonce and Steven Spielberg, As for the plot...

Alex Reltin: 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.

I really enjoyed it!I think that the whole idea behind the plot had something very special and that was something that I really enjoyed. It was new, unique.
