    Summary

    Continuation of story from "Poetry Slam", a request for a female Shepard managing to romance both Garrus and Thane since Shepard is polyamorous. Starts most of the way through ME2 after loyalty missions and the buildup to the Omega Relay, extends through the time frame of ME3 with altered circumstances driven by change in plot and character.

    Prompt for "Poetry Slam" from ArtificialStupidity, and prompt for this from Vulpixer.

    Romance, humor, smut, snark, fluff, wish fulfillment and "oh fuck, that did not work out well..." AU. What happens if Arrival DLC didn't happen that way? What if Shepard never hands the Normandy over? What if Garrus and Thane don't particularly feel like following orders?

    Playing with characters and fantasy fix-its and fuck-it-ups what ifs. Told from Shepard's POV.

    Courtesy warning that it starts relatively fluffy, but gets dark, non-con elements, psychological and physical torture elements.

    Summary

    Wren Shepard wakes up after two years dead, surrounded by Cerberus assholes. In true Shepard style, she carries on despite all odds, or maybe because of them. She's given a life she didn't ask for, reunited with her ship and her pilot and a new crew, but she wants the one thing she can't have: to not have been brought back at all. The only thing keeping her sane is a growing friendship with her second in command, the turian Garrus Vakarian.

    Lots of FemShep angst. As it stands, this is a standard retelling of paraged ME2 with slow burn Shakarian, interspersed fluff, and eventual smut.

    Work and chapter titles are from the poem "The Night Dances" by Sylvia Plath

    Summary

    "... 'Cause I'm so fucking far from gone."

    Shepard wakes up from the dead, two years have passed and all her friends are gone. Kaidan is impossible to get in touch with. Messages to her brother doesn't get through. And she's in the hands of a terroristorganisation that have spent billions of credits to resurrect her. It all feels like one great nightmare. But she is Commander Shepard, and she's not going to let that stop her. Because she is Commander Shepard, right...?

    Takes place during the second game, with the addition that Shepard has a twin brother.
    Note: Title and subheading are from songs by my favourite band "Machinae Supremacy". Which have been playing a lot in the background while I wrote this.

    Summary

    Kaidan looks the same, for the most part. His hair’s still stubbornly fighting gravity; his shoulders are broader, the years gently chiseling his jaw. The biggest change is in his eyes: the way he seems to squint at the camera more scrutinously, accusingly, as though perpetually troubled by suspicious thought.

    It has been two years. But for Shepard, it has only been weeks.
