    Summary

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

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Shepard, born of earth, grow up in a cold and hostile environment. Then watched as her foster family was slaughtered on Mindor, she then survived the cruel torment of Akuze, how far can she go before she snaps completely.

    She lost so much, shes out for revenge, and she didn't really care who gets in the way. However that might all change due to a curtain Turian

    This AU mainly takes place on the citadel.

    Rated for language and sexual content.

    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.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard prides herself on being infallibly kind, polite, patient, and compassionate to others. In the middle of the Reaper War, all it takes is the wrong word from the wrong person to unleash years of carefully repressed anger.

    Summary

    Part of a larger work in progress. Read notes for backstory and helpful context, though not critical.

    Edited summary!
    Mid ME2:Enter a secretly mentally unstable, Shepard who (after her break with Liara) is sick of her usual woman-favoring decides to try turian, and doesn't much care who or how. Now, imagine the dollar signs in her eyes when she spots a booth full of some of the best dark meat on the Citadel. However, a one night stand turns into a crazy weekend-long romp powered by stims, guns, and asari hotel room, as well as unexpected feelings for the one turian who, inexplicably, holds the keys to her sanity.

    If you're here for fluff and lots of smut, you've come to the right place.

    Summary

    This is the story of Meghan Shepard. I've started things a little before the 1st game, one because of a really cool piece of fanart that inspired a scene I wanted to write and two because I also thought it would be interesting if somehow Kaidan and Shepard had met before they got onto the Normandy. The first chapter is that meeting and it's just before, but there are already sparks flying between them. I will be sticking pretty close to the story in the game, occasionally throwing in extra bits that I think should be in there, because there were times I thought more needed to be said or done. Meghan is a Spacer and the Hero of Elysium. She is also a Paragon Shepard, I use a couple of the renegade interrupts in the later games because they make sense. I am going to be a little slow getting this all written (the living situation and my work hours make it hard to find time to write), I will finish this, so please stick with me.

    Summary

    When the Normandy was repaired enough to return to Earth the crew had to wait as relays were repaired using Reaper tech and Prothian data. Eventually they reached Earth again only to discover that the Citadel had crashed into the planet and no one knew if Shepard survived. Obviously most assumed not, but a few loyal crew members refused to give up hope, instead digging through the wreckage in London to try and find her before it was too late. She'd lived this long, she couldn't die now. Not yet, it would be an empty galaxy without her in it.

    Summary

    "No one told you when to start running, Shepard. But when they did you gave them more than a sprint. When it came to finding Saren, you gave it your all. And then they just put you aside at their whim because they didn't like hearing about the truth of the Reapers. I'm not sure Humanity, or anyone for that matter, deserves you...” Miranda trailed off as she lifted her hand slowly from the stasis pod. “...but you're all we have standing between our salvation or destruction." Her eyes flickered across the body that was once, and would become again, Commander Shepard.

    Miranda Lawson knows what the act of creation feels like. Building something from nothing and bringing it into this world is an ecstatic feeling. She happen to be an artist; skilled in the art of piecing together what once made a person. Art no matter the subject matter is something an artist should be proud of. So why is the first feeling towards Shepard is to wrap her hands around her throat and throttle her?

    EDIT(9/20/17): I'll admit it, when I first uploaded this fic I had no direction. I had no idea where I wanted to go with this, but fret not! I'm working on something big and enjoyable. Once I start something I always finish it! :-)

    Summary

    Commander Natasha Shepard is a biotic with the L2 implant. Not that it's common knowledge. This affects her life more than she'll ever admit.

    ---

    In which Mindor happened earlier in the timeline, when Shepard was 10, not 16, Kaidan pretends the little Nat he knew on Jump Zero was a completely different person, and Shepard doesn’t want any pity. For anything.
