    Summary

    "She didn't have to ask which children he meant. The students of Grissom Academy weren't the first she had sent to their deaths, nor the last. Just the ones that haunted her the most. It was the day she had realized how broken the universe was and how nothing could fix it."

    Summary

    War has a funny effect on people's relationships. It can sometimes ended them, or bring people together, whether it be a two peoples or two individuals. On the SSV Normandy, it did just that; species with known hatred for others set aside differences to help the better cause while also bring certain people together... closer than just a 'mutual' relationship.

    Summary

    She tries to stay awake. Shepard blinks with one eye and feels the blood on her face harden and crack and itch like paint and she waits, every second and eternity as her lungs breathe without her consent and her body functions far past what it should.

    She waits, and waits, and she waits…

    And then the rubble shifts.

    Summary

    "To the Sol Alliance and all of Humanity, greetings. I am Harbinger and I have traveled across the galaxy to meet you."

    Shepard wasn’t the first to reach the Catalyst, eons ago someone else did, and they chose Synthesis

    Though when the choice was made, Synthesis wasn’t for every living being, it was only for the Reapers and they have sought it ever since.

    With the Reapers now fully hybrid Synthetic-Organics beings how will the cycle change? How will the galaxy react?

    AU, First contact Reaper/Human, Alternate History

    Rated for swearing.

    Summary

    Extra bits from Mass Effect Synthesis. Could be extra scenes, alternative scenes or things that are just plain weird. These are things that didn't make it into the main story but still might give someone a laugh or a smile or illustrate things in a different way.

    Summary

    Drabbles and vignettes written for a few LJ communities. Covering the whole series as well as various characters. Unless stated otherwise in the chapter's note, Shepard is a male spacer in a relationship with Garrus.

    17th: The Ghost, they called them, since nobody could seem to succeed in tracing the guy's id informations, even when nobody seemed to be able to shut up about their impressive battle achievements. Garrus couldn't say he wasn't excited that Shepard had sent Tali and him on a mission where they'd have to team up with them.

    Summary

    A series of short stories about Athena Shepard: Survivor of Mindoir, War Hero, Hero of the Citadel and the Savior of the entire known Galaxy; also a badass Sentinel with a penchant and love for Sniper Rifles as well as one sexy Turian by the name of Garrus Vakarian.

    It will be spanning over all three games, but not in any particular or chronological order for now; it could change. Rated E for heavy language, blood and violence, graphic sex and adult humor/content. Not all segments will be in her POV. Not all segments will stick hardcore to canon, but most will. If you're not into Shepard being a die-hard Paragade with an addiction to swearing, alcohol and sex then this might not be the series for you. You must also be aware that most characters will swing in and out canon characterization. Fair warning!

    Enjoy!
