    Summary

    ‘What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined to strengthen each other, to be at one with each other, in silent unspeakable memories.’ ~George Eliot~

    Having a relationship in the Alliance is difficult. There are fraternization regs to uphold. However, the regs are a little more lenient when it pertains to married couples. Normally, they don’t serve on the same ship due to the possibility of the worst case scenario happening, as it does upon occasion, but in special cases it is possible to allow such instances, if there is a need. Especially when one such couple consists of a famous ‘war hero’ badass marine and a smartass pilot who is known to be the best in the Alliance fleet.

    This is their story. It will encompass all three Mass Effect games and beyond and will describe how their relationship survives through; the hunt for a rogue spectre, reanimation by a terrorist organization, and eventual invasion of the Reapers. It will test everything that their relationship is built upon; romance, love, lust, laughter, terror, grief, family, and hope. There are a few other words that come to mind about these two; stubborn, smartass, determined, loyal, dedicated…soulmates.

    Summary

    Commander Veronika Shepard, Hero of the Blitz and Sole Survivor of Akuze, is candidate to be the first human Spectre. The mission that brings her spectre status ends up being larger than humanity. She has a loyal crew to help her succeed, and finds not only camaraderie, but also love. Her relationship with her fellow marine Kaidan Alenko is put through a severe test, fraternization regulations being only one problem they face. Strays slightly from canon. Rated M for later chapters.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything to see justice done when the opportunity presented itself. That's not normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal. Maybe they were. Maybe... they were very personal.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167. T-16 years until Eden Prime.

    A story of talented people who aren't exactly whole inside, but find those missing pieces in the warm regard of unexpected friends. Misadventure. Mass murder. Boring Council meetings. The mental dissonance of living above the law. Caffeine addictions. Spectre missions. The people behind the legends. Bullets. Many, many bullets.

Now both the Hierarchy and the Alliance has agreed to an armistice which has lasted for 6 years. Gagarin Station (Jump Zero)has been established as a place of reconciliation, where turian recruits and human biotics train side by side as supposed allies. However, old grudges die hard and for some of the students it's hard to let go of the past.

    Summary

    A united galaxy has defeated the Reapers but worlds are left in ruin; every race now turns to recouping their losses as they mourn their dead. Shepard, her family and her friends also begin their recoveries, each fighting their own personal battles while they strive to prevent a fractured galaxy from falling back into chaos — and to secure their own 'happily ever after' ending.

    Summary

    Sending Shepard back in time? Wildly inefficient. Unlikely to produce significant changes to timeline. Sending the Illusive Man back in time?

    Difficulty level has increased. Jack Harper, The Illusive Man, is back where it all started. New Cerberus, New plan, and the Reapers watching, always watching. Sending a Hero back in time does nothing; Sending back this guy? Priceless. AU.

    Epic length story about the Illusive Man and how he plans to get back at the Reapers. Includes lovable characters and a deeply realistic portrayal of the Human Systems Alliance, the Council, and the Batarian Hegemony.

    Summary

    This is a Mass Effect AU started by shenkoappreciationweek2015. The prompt was a coffeehouse/cliche AU, so I had Alyss and Kaidan meet at a ski lodge over winter break. The two of them had been starring at each other for hours, and finally, gave in to base lust and slept together, with the thought of never seeing each other again and going back to their normal lives. Neither expected Kaidan to be her Law Professor at her university, (he's a genius, who graduated high school at 14). There's no way this can get out, but after seeing each other again, they both want to know where this could go--so we have the student/teacher relationship. Her step-brother Jeff Moreau is all for Alyss letting loose, but he doesn't know that his step sister, older by three months, is sleeping with her teacher, but he does know that this new boy in her life makes her really happy. Can Kaidan and Alyss stay together if their relationship gets out?

    Summary

    Once, he had been just plain Jack Harper, a loving father, even if he didn't get to see his daughter as often as he wanted. He'd kept everything about Cerberus from Hannah and Jane.

    Then his little girl died, and he funneled everything he had into bringing her back.

    Summary

    Immediately following the ending of the War, Shepard struggles to make sense of everything that happened.

    Rose shook her head, her fingers brushing hair back out of her eyes. “What the fuck are you playing at?” she asked both of them. “Cerberus was meant to be finished, gone, when Jack Harper died. I shot him right between the eyes.”

    “Did you really think he wouldn’t have contingencies in place in the event he died?” Brooks sneered, and Rose’s blood ran cold with her own naivety. “Of course he did. Long-range contingencies. It’s such a shame you killed Armistan Banes. Now we only have Connie here…”

    A post-Reaper war fic.

    Summary

    The Reapers have invaded and are destroying the galaxy one planet at a time. Commander Damien Shepard is tired. It feels as if he’s fighting a losing battle. A battle that is rushing him forward unheeded into death’s grip once again, with no end in sight. Or so it seems. After the exhaustion of curing the genophage and the numbness of fighting old enemies from the Citadel coup, Damien is ready to just let the inevitable happen when suddenly something stirs the air and sharpens his focus. Not understanding at first that this new obsession of his has heightened his awareness and made him more alert to every minute in his struggle of trying to live through the end of the war, he begins to have a flutter of hope. The hope starts to whisper in his ear of a love so great that it makes him grasp a hold of the lifeline with both hands and never let go.

    Summary

    FemShep/Liara romance. Edgy, very dark themes, character/relationship focussed with plenty of sexystuff. Original characters. political intrigue and action.
    Shepard struggles with the pressure, her anxiety and fear; Liara struggles with the fallout from Shepard's death and return.
    Left of cannon, not always sticking to linear storyline, or in game timelines.
    Includes major storyline with Aria and a lot of time on Thessia
    This is the first of two 'books' that will span the whole of the Mass Effect Trilogy. This first book will take us to the end of ME2 (but we don't follow all in game timings).
    You will see, hopefully, my writing transforming and growing stronger as the work progresses. I find my own voice at some point and your feedback on the overarching progress of the writing is also welcome on top of the story itself.

    Summary

    "In truth, he'd been waiting for this day a while. And although, in past relationships, this had not always been his ultimate goal, Shepard was different. He loved her, more than anyone he'd ever loved before.

    And so meeting her mother had been something he was looking forward to. To an extent."

    Summary

    As far back as he can remember there has always been three of them, the memories of him youth clashing horribly with this reality that he now lived. The sights and sounds and scents of London, so integral to his boyhood, were forever connected to those days were now tainted with this new memory. For the last time he lay his hand on the smooth grain of the wood of the casket beneath the Alliance's flag, whispering this last goodbye to a man he had never had the opportunity to know long after the few who had known the truth and had mourned the loss of this great man had left. In a different world he could have known this man better, could have grown up knowing the significance of this man to his life but in this world the patriot that was his father had passed into the abyss with the smallest of ceremony. No one would know the extent of what this great man had accomplished and sacrificed in the process.

    Turning from the grave Commander Braxton Andrew Shepard joined his litter mates in the pouring rain.
