    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Summary

    Exactly what the title says - an Alternate, fluffier 'what-if' ending to my shrios fic, The Other Shepard.

    What if, instead of being content to live out the few years they have left together while fighting the Reapers, they are offered a chance?

    A proposition from Alec Ryder, perhaps a month before the Hyperion is to depart. "Come with us, and maybe once we're settled, we can develop the cures you need."

    The following is what might happen if they'd said 'yes'.

    Summary

    In a future in which humanity has given manifest destiny a whole new angle, and spread across the silent galaxy to colonize now-untenanted worlds—and taken their wars and power-plays with them—Commander Jackson “Vanguard” Shepard is an anomaly: a discharged and retired N7 biotic who’s not shilling for the hegemonic Systems Alliance. He scrambles from month to month, from meager pension check to meager pension check, with only his big-hearted mutt Bosco for companionship and purpose.

    Shep’s nothing to no one—neither hero, nor villain . . . paragon, nor renegade—just another angry, near-destitute veteran of war(s) no one wants to care about or remember in the bright dawn of an “Age of Manifest Destiny” all humanity can enjoy. He’s keeping his head down and himself to himself as best he can. He doesn’t miss or even remember the stars. Enter three deus ex machinas: a naïve, but disconcertingly gorgeous kid who looks at Shep like he’s his only hope; Shep’s former second-in-command (and former-lover) who can read him like an open book; and Shep’s batshit, former team-member, Corporal Toombs . . . the only other survivor of Akuze besides Shep. And with these three, come all their attendant troubles.
