    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.

    Summary

    James Vega had dreamed about Rennah Shepard for years and always hoped to meet her, but when he's tasked with keeping her safe on Earth he gets more than he bargained for; she's argumentative, stubborn and sexy as sin. Joining the crew of the Normandy, fighting the Reapers and falling in love was never part of the plan... (Cover Art by DStPierre)

    Summary

    Five years after the fall of the Reapers and the crash of most technology as the galaxy knew it, the galaxy is rebuilding, recouping, and restabilizing. 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 of decension 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

    James didn't think he had it in him to leave London six months after the destruction of the Reapers. But, when Shephard, from her hospital bed all hooked up with tubes and stitches, assures him that humanity will be fine, that what they needed now was builders and planners, James enrolls in the N7 program, and into the second hardest thing he's ever done in his life. If Hell Month doesn't kill him, a certain new biotic N5 with an attitude just might. Note to self: never disrespect biotics to a Fury Adept's face.

    Also, I don't fucking care, I'm making it to where EDI and the Geth live.

    Summary

    “We went through all that the first time around, Kaidan, you and me together, and you’re still blaming me for not doing well enough. You’re still throwing shit at me for not being flawless. Not a day goes by that I don’t think I might have made a mistake directing that asteroid into the Alpha relay. There isn’t an hour that passes where I don’t feel the weight of those losses in my gut; where I don’t question that decision. But I did the best I could with the information I was given and with the circumstances I had. And I don’t accept your judgments of me until you’ve been through the same hell that I have this year -- exactly the same way I don’t put up with anyone who gives me shit for not saving the Council three years ago. Okay?” Shepard sighs and sets a hand on her forehead, as though physically supporting the weight of her own judgments. “I did the same thing I always do: I make hard decisions. I don’t make perfect decisions.”

     

    Kaidan closes his eyes and sets the back of his head gently against the wall. “Okay,” he husks eventually, letting the tension roll out of his shoulders. “Okay, Shepard.”

    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."
