    Commander Shepard is a legend: First Human Spectre, Hero of the Citadel, Savior of the Galaxy. In the middle of the war, he finds he'd rather be less legend and more human.

    Summary

    Mass Effect World War II AU. Lieutenant Kaidan Alenko of the Royal Canadian Navy is trained as a special ops engineer now on loan to the US Navy to aid in their efforts against the Japanese in the Pacific Theater. His mission seems straightforward enough, until he boards the famous USS Enterprise and meets her unstoppable crew; namely a battle-hardened war hero named Commander Ianto Shepard, who is rapidly growing in fame for his reckless, but effective tactics. And when the Allies begin to lose footing in the Pacific, Captain David Anderson hopes that Kaidan's skill in intelligence and infiltration will be the perfect ying to Ianto's brutally aggressive yang. But as their crew fights from Midway all the way to D-Day, Kaidan and Ianto discover so much more in each other than the perfect battlefield harmony, and a refusal to bow to a world falling apart around them at every turn. They'll do anything for the cause. For each other. No matter the cost.

    KITH MADE THE MOST PERFECT PLAYLIST IN THE HISTORY OF EVER FOR THIS FIC! SERIOUSLY. NO JOKE, IT'S BEYOND PERFECT AND HISTORICALLY APPROPRIATE! PLEASE LISTEN TO IT HERE ON 8TRACKS!

    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

    Kaidan knew that forever wasn't always permanent. He knew that deep down he and Shepard were more likely to part than stay together. But even after the heartache and countless attempts to move on, he still has trouble breathing when Shepard walks into the room after all these years.

    Forced to spend a weekend with Shepard shouldn't be too hard, or at least Kaidan thought. He promised Liara he'd make it through her wedding in one piece, but actually making it is another story completely.

    Kaidan's starting to learn that, sometimes, when you start looking towards the future, the past can't help repeating itself.

    Summary

    After the ending of Mass Effect 3.

    "It's never easy to be chosen
    never easy to be called
    Standing on the front line
    When the bombs start to fall
    I can see heavens
    But I still hear the flames
    Calling out my name

    I can see the writing on the wall
    I can't ignore this war
    At the end of it all
    Who am I living for?"
