    Summary

    We all know the epic love story of Shakarian, but what if Garrus met someone else before Commander Jane Shepard? What if she was his first human before meeting Jane? Follow this episodic love story following all your beloved Mass Effect characters plus one. Follows Canon and beyond with a twist. Some changes will occur. Garrus/OC Garrus/FShepard FShepard/Liara

    Full Summary: Garrus Vakarian didn't want to work on the Citadel in C-Sec, if he was to be completely honest he'd have picked being anywhere else. But family means duty, and duty means doing things you don't want to do. However, he wasn't expecting to find love, much less an adventure to save the galaxy. He was never a very good Turian anyways, so it should have been expected.
    Rachael Harper was just a spoiled heiress going to university on the Citadel. She didn't expect one night of fun to slowly unravel her entire life. She didn't mean to fall in love with her arresting officer, and she certainly didn't mean to uncover a conspiracy on the Citadel. But what's a girl to do when you're stuck between family and doing the right thing. Follow her as she learns to love someone other than herself and become more than just a passive member on the road of life.

    Summary

    “Part of what I’m saying here, Vakarian, is that I’d want you to be in charge of this.” She looked out the window again. “I think, of all possible options, you’ve got the best chance of figuring this whole mess out. And after what we learned on Noveria, about indoctrination, me dying wouldn’t be the worst way for me to be incapacitated.”

    It took Garrus a moment to parse the phrasing, but as soon as he did, he blurted, “You think you’ve been indoctrinated?”

    Shepard barked a laugh. “God, I hope not. But if I were, who would know? Did Nihlus know that Saren had been indoctrinated? Did anyone? Not until his actions got too extreme to deny.” She looked back at him, and her eyes were so intense and dark that Garrus felt pinned to his seat. “But if you start to think I’ve been indoctrinated, Vakarian, you’ve got to get me out of command.”

    Summary

    Tali watches them, sees them dance a dance she could never learn, and she follows them to the end of the galaxy.

    Or: never-ending wisecracks, ever-exasperated desperation, and enough pressure to crush a diamond into dust and back.

    This will, hopefully if readers like it, span all three games with the idea that Garrus and Shepard were married before the events of ME 1.

    Just a lovely series involving the fantastic Garrus/Shepard. Interesting concept too!

    Summary

    New Chapters posted here now! Commander Jane Shepard. Colonist, War Hero, smart ass. When Spectre Nihlus Kryik says he is leaving the Normandy to investigate on his own, Shepard stops him. From that moment, ripples move out through the fabric of the reality we're familiar with, changing everything. Well, almost everything. The Reapers are coming.

    In this first volume, Saren and the geth race to find the Conduit, starting the new cycle. Can Shepard beat them to it? Will this new reality be better equipped to deal with the Reaper threat, or will everything crumble to ruin? Canon-divergent where one small decision changes everything. Rated for language and smart assedness. Sexy times much later on.

    Summary

    The last two years of Kaidan Alenko's life have been rough, and he feels like he needs to get out of town and away from everyone and everything. When his bike breaks down in a small town called Citadel, he feels drawn to the handsome, yet scarred mechanic Matthew Shepard. The feeling appears to be mutual, and after months of aimless traveling he finally decides to stay in one place for a while.

    Summary

    "They told us they were the Creators and we believed them. They were powerful, they were sympathetic, they could see into our mind, and they even gave us the power to manipulate dark energy to our every whim. Then it changed. Our Creators turned on us and told us that we were furthering organic life, but when the Old Ones appeared they told us the truth about the Creators. So we fought, we lost and retreated with Vanguard's help. It's up to you now to end the Cycle," he said, turning from the water basin and facing her bright green eyes that still held the silver that bespoke of her Indoctrination despite all efforts to erase it. "Only you, Shepard, can change the way this ends."

    Summary

    The Bioware creators of Mass Effect had finally finished making a virtual reality Mass Effect game that spanned out through all three games. When you put on the virtual reality interface, you become Commander Shepard, and essentially the whole world depends on you. It was all fun and games, until my interface malfunctioned, and I couldn’t log out. Now I am stuck as Commander Nyssa Shepard. I might as well make the most of it, and be the best damn Commander Shepard that ever existed.

    Summary

    After the hard missions, Shepard always has her crew to lean on, and one person in particular. A collection of Shakarian moments throughout the series. Includes all members of the Normandy Crew; drinking, fighting, and other bonding.

    Works alongside in-game canon until the end of ME2, giving the Garrus romance (and the rest of the Normandy Crew) more of a presence in Shepard's day-to-day life. Features much drinking and sass.

    I promise a fun read that stays true to the characters until the end.

    Summary

    All of my Mass Effect stories take place in the same universe, so there is a continuity between characters and events. That said, no one story is required reading. The various stories and chapters feature multiple different points of view. There are a few original characters, but the story POVs are main cast, excluding Shepard herself. While there are additions and deviations, the stories hew fairly closely to overall game canon (such as it is).

    It's so damn hard to gather a group of, well, nutters, and save the galaxy from big-headed monsters and their mosquito buddies when you're accompanied by a ridiculously sexy drell, who can make your knees go weak by just existing. But Robyn Shepard is trying.

    Summary

    A girl from our world gets dropped into a Female Shepard's body in Mass Effect 2. Let's watch and see what happens.

    I intend an eventual romance with Thane and everything moves kind of fast in the beginning-- but I plan for it to slow down after picking up Mordin, Zaeed and Garrus. Basically I'm speeding through all the Illusive bullshit at the beginning but then it'll slow down and explore this new Shepard's relationship with the characters.

    And here's a spoiler that spoils almost nothing-- The original Shepard was a bigoted asshole.

    Summary

    The humans have a saying, something about being forged in the fires of battle. The thing is, the forging changes you -- your shape, your strength. I was no exception. The raw potential Shepard saw in me was honed into a weapon. I can say, with no small amount of pride, that when the Reapers came, burning my home, my world, I held the line against the fire.

    And when I saw her on Menae, I had a plan.

    Summary

    When Jane Shepard triggers the destruction of the Reapers through the Crucible, she welcomes death. After losing all her friends and allies during the war, she thinks she deserves some respite.

    Instead, she wakes up aboard the Normandy SR1, captained by a pissed-off John Shepard. He's about to storm Saren's base on Virmire and he's got enough responsibilities on his shoulders without dealing with a stow away.
