    Summary

    Kaidan is a good lawyer, who came from a wealthy family but had won everything he had working hard. In six months he is going to marry a beautiful girl, and their parents were happy about the upcoming wedding, but he wasn't. He became engaged to Ashley, just to please his parents, without thinking of himself. One night his life changed when he met the owner of a bar, and the two of them began a passionate relationship.
    John had come out of a painful relationship, and he was alone for a while, but when he met Kaidan, a famous lawyer who had been unable to face his parents and admit that he preferred the company of men, his life changed. Becoming Kaidan's lover wasn't in his plans much less was falling in love with the man, which led him to ask Kaidan to make a decision.
    Kaidan was left with no choice but to choose between a false life next to a woman he doesn't love, or stay with the person who actually made him happy.

    Summary

    Shepard sacrifices himself to bring about synthesis in spite of severe misgivings and a deep desire to not die. Kaidan doesn't know how to cope; no one knows how to cope. But the Catalyst couldn't foresee every outcome, and it turns out Shepard is just really damn hard to kill.

    A Search for Spock style fix-it featuring camaraderie, hijinks, a few unexpected faces, and ruminations on this weird new evolutionary path.

    Summary

    Thrown back in time, Shepard and crew use their advanced knowledge to make allies, build strategies, and obliterate the reapers before they can take a single casualty. Well, that's the plan anyways. No one really expects the council or anyone else to be any less of a pain in the ass than before.

    Summary

    Post destroy ending ME3. Shepard survives. Anderson survives. Kaiden and Ashley are both alive. Blue love all the way!

    Basically how I wanted ME3 to end. Super fluff warning. Might have some plot mixed in there somewhere...

    Also Bioware and EA own all the characters and stuff.

    Summary

    In a Cerberus facility on a backwater planet, Commander Madeline Shepard finds a young woman being used a test subject. She's a strong, but not extraordinary, biotic and possesses no memories of her life before or during her time in the facility. Shepard takes her on board the Normandy and she mostly keeps to herself, sensing the suspicious and not so hidden distrust of the rest of the crew

    There's something off about her though that Shepard can't seem to quite pinpoint. She's perfectly pleasant, if a little shy, but only time will tell whether or not Shepard made a mistake in allowing her on board.

    Summary

    Commander Jaxson Shepard decides to destroy the Reapers and, in doing so, wins the Reaper War. However, victory comes at a terrible cost. The Crucible, a massive weapon built out of desperation and without any clear understanding of what it would actually do, sends out an Electromagnetic Pulse, wiping out all electronics and sending every galactic civilization back into a new Dark Age. In a last ditch effort at survival, the crew of the Normandy makes a crash landing on a little known planet and forced to fight for survival. Meanwhile on a decimated Earth, Shepard is discovered barely alive with a long, slow recovery ahead without the aid of modern medicine. For Jaxson and Kaidan, their love for each other may be the only thing strong enough to overcome impossible odds to find each other again.

    Summary

    The Reapers have been defeated, the galaxy has been saved and the time for rebuilding has come ... but that was just the beginning for Commander Serafina Shepard.

    Based off my Shepard's playthrough of all ME games and the Destroy ending (extended cut) of ME3. This is my take on the next chapter in Shepard's adventures. Many of the characters from in-game will appear, as will several original characters.

    Summary

    Kaidan felt like someone had kicked him in the chest and it had nothing to do with being injured. They had almost won and then that damn Reaper flipped the Mako and he'd gotten injured. Shepard had called the Normandy in for an evac. At first, he'd thought it was for all of them, but when she'd handed him off to James saying, "Here, take him," he knew she was planning to get to the beam alone. He wasn't going to leave her, not again. He closed his eyes as those moments played out in his head:

    Shepard!"
    "You gotta get out of here."
    "Yeah...that's not gonna happen."
    "Don't argue with me, Kaidan."
    "Don't leave me behind."
    "...No matter what happens...know that I love you, always."

    Summary

    Shepard's life has been neither here nor there for many years. Mindoir haunts his dreams just as surely as the current threat to the galaxy does since an encounter with someone he used to know. He had doubts that a rag-tag crew can really help him learn to live again when he has repeated his life's greatest failure. One person at least always seems to know just what to say even when he himself doesn't know how to start feeling again and he's head over heels for a man who now hates his guts before he even realizes it. Follows the plot of ME 1, 2 and 3, mostly my head canon with some minor canon divergences.

    Summary

    The galaxy has turned against her. The Alliance was disbanded and the remaining humans were sold into slavery. For this, Jessica Shepard became a traitor to the galaxy she once would have died to save. Anyone who sided with her were considered traitors as well. For years, they ran from angry humans and slavers. Until one day, they had enough.

    Summary

    The evening is late, the lights burned way down low just barely touching on the two forms writhing on the bed. They are so different and yet so alike; one is dark as rich dark chocolate, the other alternating between tan lines and pale skin where trousers and shirt has covered him from the harsh sunlight. They are both bare, and it is obvious at a glance just how well they fit together, like two puzzle pieces slotting together as their bodies join.
