    Summary

    (WARNING: contains major spoilers for all three Mass Effect games. Read at your own risk!)

    It's been three years since Commander Shepard vanished after saving the galaxy from the Reaper threat. His actions, and what became of him, are still shrouded in mystery, but he is presumed dead.
    Garrus Vakarian has a difficult time moving on from his friend(or more?)'s apparent demise. His struggles are only intensified when he starts noticing mysterious messages, seemingly left just for him...in words that no one but the deceased Commander would know.

    The quest for truth leads our heroes again across the galaxy...battling pirates, lies, an old foe revived and the spectre of madness itself!!!1!!!

    (Game Background: Paragon route, Vanguard Shepard, Council saved, everyone survives [exc. Mordin, Anderson, Thane and Ashley.], Kaidan saved, Morinth killed, genophage cured, Geth and Quarian peace acheived, NO dlc except the extended ending.)

    Summary

    The staging of paradox made for high drama: She would lose him if he pulled the trigger. He would pull the trigger. She could not lose him.

    Thane observes Shepard's methods during Garrus's loyalty mission, and is forcibly reminded of another time when someone had the guts to stare down a sniper's scope.

    Soul searching, grief, recovery, questions. It's easy to find more than you were expecting when you weren't expecting anything at all.

    Summary

    When Indigo Carter moved from Earth to the Citadel with the intent to study music at Auxua School of the Arts, she didn't quite know what to expect. She certainly never imagined she’d one day be drunkenly serenading a keeper or making the acquaintance of a not-quite-hitman. Life is a messy ordeal, but this makes the Reapers seem like a welcome cleaning service.

    Summary

    Summary

    Mass Effect World War II AU. Lieutenant Kaidan Alenko of the Royal Canadian Navy is trained as a special ops engineer now on loan to the US Navy to aid in their efforts against the Japanese in the Pacific Theater. His mission seems straightforward enough, until he boards the famous USS Enterprise and meets her unstoppable crew; namely a battle-hardened war hero named Commander Ianto Shepard, who is rapidly growing in fame for his reckless, but effective tactics. And when the Allies begin to lose footing in the Pacific, Captain David Anderson hopes that Kaidan's skill in intelligence and infiltration will be the perfect ying to Ianto's brutally aggressive yang. But as their crew fights from Midway all the way to D-Day, Kaidan and Ianto discover so much more in each other than the perfect battlefield harmony, and a refusal to bow to a world falling apart around them at every turn. They'll do anything for the cause. For each other. No matter the cost.

    KITH MADE THE MOST PERFECT PLAYLIST IN THE HISTORY OF EVER FOR THIS FIC! SERIOUSLY. NO JOKE, IT'S BEYOND PERFECT AND HISTORICALLY APPROPRIATE! PLEASE LISTEN TO IT HERE ON 8TRACKS!
