    Summary

    In a future in which humanity has given manifest destiny a whole new angle, and spread across the silent galaxy to colonize now-untenanted worlds—and taken their wars and power-plays with them—Commander Jackson “Vanguard” Shepard is an anomaly: a discharged and retired N7 biotic who’s not shilling for the hegemonic Systems Alliance. He scrambles from month to month, from meager pension check to meager pension check, with only his big-hearted mutt Bosco for companionship and purpose.

    Shep’s nothing to no one—neither hero, nor villain . . . paragon, nor renegade—just another angry, near-destitute veteran of war(s) no one wants to care about or remember in the bright dawn of an “Age of Manifest Destiny” all humanity can enjoy. He’s keeping his head down and himself to himself as best he can. He doesn’t miss or even remember the stars. Enter three deus ex machinas: a naïve, but disconcertingly gorgeous kid who looks at Shep like he’s his only hope; Shep’s former second-in-command (and former-lover) who can read him like an open book; and Shep’s batshit, former team-member, Corporal Toombs . . . the only other survivor of Akuze besides Shep. And with these three, come all their attendant troubles.

    Summary

    John and Jane Shepard co-own and work the popular Catalyst, serving drinks and dancing on stage for their customer’s amusement. Along with that they also do the occasional illegal transaction and questionable business on the side. All with good intentions of course.

    When their business attracts two Alliance soldiers looking to track down a rogue Spectre and giving them the opportunity to join the Normandy in hunting down this rogue, who were they to say no and let it slip through their fingers?

    Someone should’ve told them what road this path would lead them down. With an ancient past being brought up, questions rising faster than answers and powerful enemies appearing left and right it was a wonder they were keeping their heads on, and John was even finding the time to flirt with the Alliance soldier that had a voice to die for and very impressive eyebrows.

    Summary

    When the Normandy was repaired enough to return to Earth the crew had to wait as relays were repaired using Reaper tech and Prothian data. Eventually they reached Earth again only to discover that the Citadel had crashed into the planet and no one knew if Shepard survived. Obviously most assumed not, but a few loyal crew members refused to give up hope, instead digging through the wreckage in London to try and find her before it was too late. She'd lived this long, she couldn't die now. Not yet, it would be an empty galaxy without her in it.

    Summary

    Though from humble, and traumatic, origins, Layla Shepard rose through the ranks of the Alliance to Commander and was chosen as the first human Spectre. She fought Seren and the geth, she fought the Collectors, she fought the Reapers, but she was never alone. Her greatest strength, as Captain Anderson tells her right from the beginning, is her ability to call others to her cause and make them believe in her as much as she believes in victory. Even though she lost her family long ago, she never feels lonely. The people she meets, the friends she gathers on the Normandy are her family. Even as she faces impossible odds, she never loses sight of what she's fighting for.

    (This has become a collection of drabbles for Layla Shepard's story that are not even remotely in any sort of order. I may, once they're finished, put them in order, but probably not lol. Enjoy!)

    Summary

    Williams had asked him (in jest, maybe) if turians really did eat their weak members, the half-mad survivors of a unit otherwise wiped out. If they’d done that to the humans who had been left, dead or dying, behind turian lines in the war. He’d corrected her that they were usually euthanized instead of consumed, but wasn’t sure she’d understood why.
