    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.
    Adrian was created for a purpose, but he found his own way, and he was able to get inside the depths of John, and kaidan hearts to stay.
    Half of ME2-ME3 and aftermaths.
    Now rewritten with better grammar and different plot. James character added from chapter 33. Miranda Join the Normandy after chapter 45.

    Summary

    The war ended unexpectedly with the Reapers repairing the relays, cleaning up the mess, and leaving, taking the Citadel with them. Meanwhile, Shepard has been sending messages to her crew, letting them know she was alive, but that she can't come back. Well, no one's going to just accept that, least of all Garrus. If she can't come home on her own, then the crew of the Normandy, past and present, are going to her! There's just one little problem: the New Council does not want them to succeed.

    Summary

    War has a funny effect on people's relationships. It can sometimes ended them, or bring people together, whether it be a two peoples or two individuals. On the SSV Normandy, it did just that; species with known hatred for others set aside differences to help the better cause while also bring certain people together... closer than just a 'mutual' relationship.
