    Summary

    "By the time the end was drawing in around her, and perhaps even a long time before, I’m certain this was no longer meant as simply an account of her journey, but a kind of catharsis, a way to put the nameless fears to rest, to remember the small joys and not infrequent moments of laughter, to unravel the knots of her despair."
    -Dr. L. Tsoni
    ----------
    Liara gives Mariah Shepard a means to tell her story for the time capsule in her own words and the Commander is surprised to find venting to some distant civilization 50,000 years later very helpful as she stands between the Reapers the rest of the galaxy. Long form fic that follows the events of ME2 and 3 with lots of references to ME1. Some further explorations of in-game events but mostly the quieter, unseen moments of Shepard and her crew.

    Summary

    The Reapers are defeated and Shepard is alive. But his crew is gone, and he has no idea if they are alive. Turian, Krogan, Salarian, Asari, Quarian; all stuck on Earth. How long will the peace Shepard made last now that the Reapers are gone?

    Summary

    “Commander Shepard, the Commander Shepard from Elysium?” She had completely forgotten about the Turian behind her, and she blinked rapidly as she turned around and watched him curiously with a nod. “Nice work you did there, heard your shot with a sniper is unmatched among others of your rank. Garrus Vakarian, Spectre. It's a pleasure to meet one of recruits this year.” He told her, offering a hand and flaring his mandibles gently when she took it without hesitation.

    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 coup, 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

    A series of interconnecting drabbles set in an verse on my RP blog where the sheer act of coming back to life was killing Sarah Shepard, so Cerberus used the DNA sequencing of a long extinct race rumored to have enhanced regenerative abilities. It worked, and she recovered in a fraction of the time. She was, however, changed slowly, not showing symptoms until her incarceration on Earth. (It's basically a Werewolf/Shapeshifter AU)

    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.

    Notice: As of 9/5/16, this story is put on permanent hiatus.

    Summary

    It was a lot easier to ignore and dismiss his crush, when he'd been able to tell himself it wasn't allowed because of their careers, rather than to own up he'd lost her to another man. Because the Commander doesn't seem to have any problem with a man who's also in Alliance blues, just him. And Joker would never admit as much, but his heart may just be as fragile as the rest of him.

    This is actually a revamp of a story that I originally posted a while back, but didn't get very far into. Now that I have improved my writing abilities and have a more solid idea of where I want the story to go, I'm reworking what I have made already and going on from there. I'm mainly doing this for me, this is a story that I wanted to write and could come back to whenever I wanted. However, if some people find pleasure in it, that's all the better! I hope you enjoy!
