    Summary

    Set during ME2. Morgan Shepard is an infiltrator with a temper who has trouble letting others close. She has a few good friends--like Garrus Vakarian--but she's resigned to the fact that she's just not good at deeper connections. And then she meets Thane Krios. She slowly finds herself liking, respecting, trusting...and then falling. She just isn't at all sure whether the drell assassin could possibly feel the same way about her. Her buddy Garrus decides to give things a nudge.

    (Note: in this fic, these relationships will never become an angsty triangle. In my ME universe, Garrus is Shepard's best friend/brother. His romantic interests lay...elsewhere. You've been warned, since I don't want to disappoint those looking for that dynamic.)

    This long fic begins with some chapters that are heavy revisions of earlier stories. The first story, published 3 years ago, was intended as a one shot, but after receiving some encouragement I occasionally added related stories. This fuller work attempts to wrangle that early stuff into a coherent whole and then carry on. More than 20 chapters are already drafted and beta'ed. Amended: Updated as regularly as I can manage.

    Summary

    Jane Shepard is a bounty hunter with a past she'd prefer to put behind her. A chance encounter with C-sec officer Garrus Vakarian presents her with an opportunity too good to pass up. Partnering up to allow Shepard better intel, and Garrus a chance at bringing in criminals outside the limits of C-sec's red tape, Shepard eventually finds herself confronting a ghost from her past, and unwittingly falling for the plucky young C-sec agent.

    Summary

    It was a strange song, a song unknown to us but beautiful even as its darkest, ugliest verse. As it was sung we grew to understand slowly, as we listened closer we understood deeply and so we came to sing in unison and harmony. But as we rose our voices in song so did others and where once was a song with no flaws came discord. Many who had once sung along with the First grew despondent and their thought disturbed painting their voices in oily colors thick as blood. And yet through that noise, through that chaos the First sung on pure and bright and beautiful as ever - a vivid burning blue/green color like the tropical water oceans of garden worlds and clear as finely cut crystals. It was that song that held strong in the raging storm of the Darkest Days in the endless deafening uproar of the Cruel Ones' Song. When all hope seemed lost the First wrestled the discordant harmony away from the Cruel Ones and gave them that clear blue/green song to sing instead. And made the galaxy sing in harmony with the power the Cruel Ones had given the First long before in hopes the First would bring the Final Discord to an end.

    -A verse of the Reaper War sung by the Rachni referencing The Stargazer, 02.15.522 ARW

    Summary

    A few weeks back I played Mass Effect for the umpteenth time and thought to myself, what if Sheps Space Dad made James join her during the hunt for the Collectors.

    If I'm not completely mistaken he went AWOL for nearly two years after Fehl Prime, something that just won't sit right with me. The Lazarus project starts 2183, the same year as Blood Pack attacks Fehl Prime. And in 2185 CE Shepard is revived while James and his Delta Team fight against the Collectors on Fehl Prime, which results in him loosing nearly everybody of his team and sacrificing the civilians to rescue Treeya and the Intel she had.

    So instead of going drinking on Omega till ME3 begins, he is forced to join her team.

    Summary

    It's been 14 years since the Relay 314 indecent and tensions between Humans and Turians still aren't the best. Most have accepted what has happened and are trying to move towards peace but some is still some that are fighting against it.

The galaxy needs it's police force back and to do that some sacrifices need to be made. What sacrifices will Isabelle Shepard have to make to insure that peace is possible and how will it effect the rest of the galaxy.

    This is a non-Reaper AU with a slightly differing time line. Shepard will have been 10 years old at the time of the Relay 314 indecent.

    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

    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!)
