    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.

Little does he know that just outside the bar, Major Kaidan Alenko is waiting to escort him to Earth where he will be serving as head of security for Commander Shepard during the six months of her incarceration.

    Summary

    Shepard's life has been neither here nor there for many years. Mindoir haunts his dreams just as surely as the current threat to the galaxy does since an encounter with someone he used to know. He had doubts that a rag-tag crew can really help him learn to live again when he has repeated his life's greatest failure. One person at least always seems to know just what to say even when he himself doesn't know how to start feeling again and he's head over heels for a man who now hates his guts before he even realizes it. Follows the plot of ME 1, 2 and 3, mostly my head canon with some minor canon divergences.
