    Summary

    In 2021, Earth was ravaged by an unknown genetic anomaly that targeted humanity. While it wasn't terminal, it did have one devastating consequence; it left humanity as a whole, sterile. With millions of people dying every year and their numbers dwindling, humanity became desperate for a cure of any kind. After years of research and experimental, genetic alterations, humanity regained the ability to reproduce, though at the cost of their previous definitions of gender. So was created, the Omegaverse.

    Now, almost a hundred and sixty years past that point, the world is still trying to parse out their new designations and roles. So much of what was done in desperation is still being discovered and controlled, quantified and labelled. With almost two-thirds of Earth's population gone since then, and with an entirely new form of gender type, how will the Alphas, Betas and Omegas carve their places in society? And what will this mean for two men in particular who are still struggling with their pre-determined fates, Kaidan and Shepard?

    Summary

    Let's say my Horizon is a little different. John Shepard wasn't willing to continue his mission without Kaidan, he already lost two years of his life, he wasn't about to lose the man he loves too, so he used force. Kaidan didn't want to join him, but there wasn't much he could do with a gun pointed at his head. In the end the love he felt for his Commander was bigger than his obstinacy.
    In the end they will have to answer to the Alliance, but as long as they are together nothing else matters.
    I decided to write this for the first time because I like fictions that are out of the game content.
    Half of ME2-ME3 and aftermaths.

    Summary

    It's not exactly love at first sight when Samantha Traynor meets Shepard, but something still inevitably draws her to the Commander. Little does she know that pursuing a relationship with her is far more complicated than she has anticipated, and she soon realizes that Shepard the woman is much different from Shepard the hero.

    (An examination of Shepard during the course of Mass Effect 3 through the eyes of one comm specialist. Alternatively, "I Slept With Commander Shepard and All I Got Was This Stupid Broken Heart.")

    Summary

    Shepard survives the destruction of the Reapers, and is found in the rubble on the Citadel. These works find him recovering in an undisclosed hospital and using the time to work through more than just the physical recovery he needs. MShep, Adept, Paragon, Shepley. Diary format chosen because I'm writing this as stream of consciousness, so I think that fits best.

    Summary

    Second chances. He'd never believed in them but now he had one. Was he brave enough to use it? Could he be good enough? Would she feel the same? A Shoker story. Rated M for language, these are marines and future smut.

    Bioware owns all things Mass Effect, I'm just rearranging and calibrating.

    Summary

    AN: Today is Commander Shepard's birthday. I heard on the radio this morning that today is the "peak" day for the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC. Very romantic setting and since today is a special day I was inspired to write another birthday drabble. I also used this romantic setting for Master Chief to smooch Commander Palmer… but that's another story. Speaking of other stories, the following pairings were taken from some of my stories.

    Btw, I left Shepard gender ambiguous. And remember, this is just a sort of romantic fantasy...

    Apparently this is a bit of an issue. The folks paired up in this story are for my amusement and I hope yours. It's just for fun. The pairing of Grunt and Kelly was told in my story, "Just like a Train Wreck" I gained not only a very negative review on that, but a Troll as well. And so I shall leave you gentle readers with Puck's speech.
