    Summary

    It was supposed to be a one-night stand. No names exchanged, just a chance for Jane Shepard to experiment with a turian who wasn't her life partner. Hell, Nihlus had even encouraged it. But after the shitstorm on Eden Prime, the handsome stranger with the bright blue eyes was thrust back into her life, this time with a name: Garrus Vakarian. Forced to team up to find proof of Saren Arterius' guilt, they wind up stuck together in a galactic journey to understand the mysterious Prothean tech uncovered on Eden Prime. Run-ins with quarian refugees, asari scholars, mercenaries with a personal vendetta against Saren, and Alliance marines ensue. And all the while, Shepard and Nihlus find themselves drawn inexplicably closer to Garrus, and he to them.

    Alternative timeline/canon divergent ME1. Follow-up/companion piece to Diplomatic Relations, though you don't necessarily need to have read one to enjoy the other.

    Summary

    Saren doesn't like children. They're messy. Demanding.

    Helpless. 

    With his line of work he never expected it to be an issue.

    "Stop that."

    "No."

    "Human, I'm not going to tell you again. Stop. Touching. That."

    That was before he was tasked with transporting the most disagreeable five-year old passenger in history to the nearest refugee facility.

    ~~~

    Or the one where Saren ends up raising an orphaned Shepard.

    Summary

    Three months after the end of the First Contact war, two unlikely soldiers meet. Major sacrifices her sight for an unknown Turian Captain, starting a chain reaction of events.

    Arcadius Blackheart never expected to start a family, but Major and her daughter, Brianna were a pleasant surprise to his life which consisted of war, death and loyalty to the Hierarchy.

    Brit grows up believing herself lost, misplaced though at each turn she tries to do her father proud. By blood or not, she remembers his teachings. She somehow lands herself tangled up with Spectres, and a plot to destroy the Galaxy.

    (Chapters will jump from POV and time. An unconventional way to tell the tale of ME1, while indulging my own muse.)

    Summary

    Lt. Commander Shepard, the White Death of Elysium and borderline pariah, is named commander of the Fifth Fleet's newest frigate, the SSV Normandy. Her task? The sort of thankless, redaction-heavy missions N7s train for, on call to do cleanup whenever and wherever Admiral Hackett says go. Along the way she forms an unlikely band of misfits into a highly effective army, and discovers just how thin and flimsy the galaxy's veneers of normalcy truly are. (An AU/"Reaper-free" doorstopper TV-Show-format series. Cross-posted on FFdotNet)

    Summary

    Some people think that just being an omega, makes a person weak.

    Here, in the Alliance, it's different. We value our omegas. One of our omegas is worth more than a hundred of you alpha pups.

    Here, it is you who must be worthy to fight alongside them.

    Summary

    Far from the security of Citadel Space is Station 31 in orbit over Alchera, one of many R&D labs owned by ExoGeni Corporation to cut down on the number of assets they have to report when taxes roll around or when word of accidents spreads. Otherwise secluded from most of society, the crew of a dozen men aboard have their otherwise mundane lives interrupted when a Quarian and Geth board the station, hunting a Varren that has wandered into their midst. Weeks out from resupply due to debris blocking all communications, they look to the Quarian/Geth facility down below, looking for answers for the two-man raid. When the situation becomes more apparent, they find themselves cornered by an unspeakable horror of which even the well-renown Protheans couldn't stop.

    Summary

    There are a lot of stories with turian as pets, but what about drells?

    The first human spectre, Jane Shepard, played a dangerous game with the Shadow Broker that causes her to be waken up by assassins every single night. The guards she hired were incompetent and incapable of protecting her. Therefore, at her friends' suggestions, she bought a drell, a species known for their raw strength that equals the krogan in hope to thwart the hired killers and catch up on her beauty sleep. Unbeknownst to her, the mysterious drell she picked is extensively trained at torturing every single one of his owner and making it seems like it was not his doing, and considers it a sport.

    This story follows through the entirety of ME1-ME3 with deviations, of course.

    Summary

    This is a weird thing to post, but I'm desparate - I'm looking for a story that was recently up on AO3 called "Finding You, Building You, Keeping You" (work 13466784) by itslike3inthemorning. It looks like the first 12 chapters were posted over a two-day period last week, with the 13th chapter posted Feb 3 or Feb 4 (when I discovered it). I read the first 2 chapters, really liked it so far, and went to read the third - and both story and author pages were deleted.

    Does anyone know what happened/if it's coming back/if it's archived elsewhere?

    Summary

    They'd gotten what they needed from Harken. Garrus wasn’t too far from their position. If Harken had decided to tell them the truth. It didn't make sense she decided; that the human embassies had protected him so long. He should have been cut out a long time ago like a piece of infected tissue.

    The Spartan project had always been quick to correct misbehaviour in the subjects and the staff. Harken should have been set straight at the start. But this wasn't the Spartan project. Normal people weren't corrected at every mistake. Normal people messed up freely. It was a messy existence and yet she found she enjoyed it. Usually. People like Harken still irritated her.

    “We aren't far from Garrus’ position. We should go now.” she turned to her squad.

    “Yes ma’am.” Kaidan returned.

    She waited for Ashley’s nod confirmation before moving on. “Right behind you ma’am.”
