    Summary

    My vision of what ME4 would/should have been. Came up with several ways to bring Shepard back from the dead but ultimately decided to keep it simple and follow up from the Destroy Ending where Shep is still alive at the end.

    Summary

    Fic prompt going around tumblr for ten song-inspired works. Three of ten now up. Order may be fluid until all ten are written! This will most likely be featuring My Shepard, Iolana Shepard, Vanguard, War Hero, Spacer, but there may be some plain Jane Shepards mixed in. And as I'm currently playing Andromeda, we'll see if anything new turns up! :D

    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.

    Summary

    Hope. John Shepard was way too familiar with this word. He heard it every day, everywhere, on Citadel, on every inhabited planet, in every corner of the Galaxy. He was that hope. And at that difficult hour, when the world had finally realized the true scope of the impending threat, all eyes were turning towards him. They made a symbol out of him, raised him to the incomprehensible rank of the unbreakable hero, set the fate of all humanity on his shoulders.

    But John also needed hope.

    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.

    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

    In a Cerberus facility on a backwater planet, Commander Madeline Shepard finds a young woman being used a test subject. She's a strong, but not extraordinary, biotic and possesses no memories of her life before or during her time in the facility. Shepard takes her on board the Normandy and she mostly keeps to herself, sensing the suspicious and not so hidden distrust of the rest of the crew

    There's something off about her though that Shepard can't seem to quite pinpoint. She's perfectly pleasant, if a little shy, but only time will tell whether or not Shepard made a mistake in allowing her on board.
