    Summary

    Three years after the fall of the Reapers and the crash of most technology as the galaxy knew it, the galaxy is rebuilding, recouping, and stabilizing. But mercenaries still have to make a living somehow, and not everyone wants to stay in the New Dark Ages forever. Stuck between stagnation and illegal innovation, Agent Carolina and the rest of the Freelancer outfit, along with their experimental AIs, choose the latter, pushing the line between indoctrination and collaboration between humans and AIs. The question no one wants to answer: just how far before that line is crossed?

    Still rebuilding from the catastrophic consequences of the Reaper invasion, the last thing the Alliance and the Council wants is unregulated experiments. And who better to send to mop up descention than Commander Finn Shepard and the infamous Normandy crew? At least, in theory. Still haunted by the repercussions of her choice, and faced with an opponent that won't crumble without a fight, Shepard and her crew can either be a tool of the Council, or help shape the growth of the galaxy themselves.

    No one ever said the choices would be easy.

    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

    The Reapers have invaded and are destroying the galaxy one planet at a time. Commander Damien Shepard is tired. It feels as if he’s fighting a losing battle. A battle that is rushing him forward unheeded into death’s grip once again, with no end in sight. Or so it seems. After the exhaustion of curing the genophage and the numbness of fighting old enemies from the Citadel coupe, Damien is ready to just let the inevitable happen when suddenly something stirs the air and sharpens his focus. Not understanding at first that this new obsession of his has heightened his awareness and made him more alert to every minute in his struggle of trying to live through the end of the war, he begins to have a flutter of hope. The hope starts to whisper in his ear of a love so great that it makes him grasp a hold of the lifeline with both hands and never let go.

    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.
