    Summary

    After disarming the bomb that the turians had planted years prior on Tuchanka, Gennevieve (Viv) Shepard and Primarch Victus seek mutual comforts after Victus loses his son, Tarquin. With the war waging on, they look to each other for strength, hope, and whatever other comforts their stations in life allow. While neither of them can make promises in the face of unpredictable outcomes brought on by the Reaper war, they soon realize that the promises don't matter nearly as much as embracing the here and now. The hazy future may thwart any opportunity for a real relationship between the two, but they can try to make the most of what little time they have.

    Eventual smut, non-canon relationship. Takes place in Mass Effect 3 timeline, after the bomb but before the genophage cure. Spans through endgame.

    Summary

    It's been six years since the Crucible fired and destroyed all the Reapers. Kolyat Krios is now an Investigator for C-Sec, and has been sent on behalf of the Council to lead a missing children case on an obscure turian colony.

    The case escalates to a homicide investigation within the first day. Kolyat is eager to solve it so he can get back to his life on Zakera Ward, but the colony of Epiteia is a long way from the Citadel, and all evidence of the missing children has been covered up with care.

    The longer the case keeps him from home, the bigger the mess his personal and professional life becomes. There's only so much an eidetic memory can solve...

    Summary

    This is a canon-divergent fic where instead of the Pathfinder boarding the Archon's ship, the Archon takes the fight to the Nexus. Non-Pathfinder Amara Ryder is awakened amidst the commotion and finds herself fighting alongside Kandros. Circumstances quickly complicate matters as they find themselves falling for each other while battling far more dangerous situations than they had bargained for.
