    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 Veronika Shepard, Hero of the Blitz and Sole Survivor of Akuze, is candidate to be the first human Spectre. The mission that brings her spectre status ends up being larger than humanity. She has a loyal crew to help her succeed, and finds not only camaraderie, but also love. Her relationship with her fellow marine Kaidan Alenko is put through a severe test, fraternization regulations being only one problem they face. Strays slightly from canon. Rated M for later chapters.

    Summary

    There was Saren and there was Sovereign. There were and are the Collectors and Cerberus. The final confrontation with the Reapers has come at last, the massive force of an apocalypse sweeping across the universe. And through it all there were and still are John Shepard and Kaidan Alenko.

    A song fic run absolutely wild. Give "Send It Up" by Vertical Horizon a listen and marvel at how I yanked this fic out of that relatively cheerful song.

    Summary

    They did it. They made it through the Omega 4 Relay, defeated the Collectors, destroyed the Base... and made it out with everyone alive.

    Celebrations are in order, but Garrus hasn’t forgotten what they’d talked about the night after dealing with Morinth. It’s time for a real announcement.

    Sequel to Seeds of Desire.

    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

    Kaidan Alenko and Commander Shepard get more than they bargained for when they're assigned to the same vessel. It's good. It's bad. It's a wild ride for which neither are prepared.

    Summary

    Shepard ne savait pas ce qu'elle faisait ici. Elle n'en avait strictement aucune idée et d'ailleurs, elle ne se souvenait pas non plus de comment elle avait atterrit là. Mais le plus étonnant dans toute cette histoire, c'était qu'elle s'en fichait également éperdument. Jusqu'à ce qu'elle retrouve son vieil ami, Mordin Solus.

    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.
