    Summary

    Victory is never the end. It's a beginning.

    The continuing story of Eevy Shepard & Liara T'Soni, their friends, comrades, enemies, and the fate of everything. From the battle for Earth and its aftermath into a galaxy left in ruins.

    Grungy and fluffy all at once, sometimes even just a little bit smutty.

    Summary

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

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    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.

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the sometimes-Paragon, biotic misfit heroine of The Null Room finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    this might go without saying, but the state of Shepard's and Vega's relationship (not to mention the politics of the Normandy, etc) won't make a heck of a lot of sense if you haven't read The Null Room. there's also a decent amount of Shepard/Alenko angst, lingering in the background like swamp gas about to erupt at any moment, that won't potentially make a great deal of sense either.

    chapter count subject to change. void where prohibited. please avoid operating large machinery when reading this fic.

    Summary

    “You’re ashamed to be seen with me,” she said quietly, her utensil clattering against her plate.

    “Pardon?” The sadness in her eyes filled him with regret.

    “It’s fine,” she told him before wiping her mouth and pushing her plate away. “I understand old ways die hard.”

    “Shepard,” he said quickly. Turians whipped their heads around at the desperation in his subvocals.

    “I’ve got a meeting,” she replied, her voice flat. The same voice she used with Doctor Michel. But this time it was aimed at him.

    Summary

    Shepard has just been told she needs to face the music sometime - especially after she nukes an entire Batarian system. She has to contend not only with her own personal feelings but also with the fact that she's going to be grounded while under the inevitable threat of the Reaper invasion. Her and Garrus are forced to part ways, and it's much more painful than she expects it to be. She doesn't want to admit it, but she would give anything to see him one more time.

    As the Quarians say, "Through tides of light and shoals of dust, I will return to where I began. Keelah Se'lai."

    She just hoped that maybe, one day, fate would bring them back together again.

    NOTE, for new/returning readers: Some of the earlier chapters of this fic are going to be rewritten in the coming days. No content will be lost - anything I remove will be uploaded separately - but I just wanted to place an announcement here in case people wonder where a particular story beat went, etc.

    Summary

    "I waited two years for you, Shepard. There was never a doubt in my heart that you wouldn't figure out some way to come back. It felt like a thousand lifetimes, and I would happily do it again, as long as I knew you were coming back to me."

    A canon story with slight divergences to accommodate my vision for this story.
    Follows through Mass Effect 2 and 3 with all DLC.

    Summary

    ** May 15, 2021, update. The writing process is coming a little slower than before, as I have taken the last year away for mental health reasons. But expect updates to the story on a bi-weekly basis until things begin to smooth out.

    Altea Shepard has saved the galaxy twice now but that doesn't help when she's blown up an entire system, including the Batarian homeworld. Forced to turn herself over to the Alliance, she ends up confined to a jail cell, stripped of her rank and her ship with only James Vega to keep her company.

    James didn't know what he was signing up for by becoming Altea Shepard's jailor. He had respected her, looked up to her for so long. But she isn't quite what he thought she was. The image the Alliance presented of her was always stoic, respectful and the girl he met the first day, anything but.

    This story will follow Shepard's confinement, then move to in-game content.

    **Will update on Sundays.
    *** Schedule may be off for a little while due to quarantine. It's messing with my brain and I do apologize.

    Summary

    His omni-tool beeped, stirring him out of a deep sleep. Rubbing his eyes, he checked the time quickly. It was 3:00 am. Two more hours before Kaidan had to get up for work.

    Kaidan. Axel felt him stir in bed next to him. He ghosted a kiss on Kaidan's shoulder just before he rolled out of bed and stood up. He quietly padded his way into the office adjacent to their master bedroom.

    Groggily he answered the call, while trying to rub the sleep out of his eyes.

    Summary

    Thane Krios runs into Kaidan Alenko at Huerta Memorial Hospital. One is there to slowly die. The other is there to slowly recover. Their one link in this messed up galaxy is Commander John Shepard. Eventually they meet, talk and strike up a unique bargain which will change all of their lives for the better.

    NOTE: The BDSM portions of this work are relatively tame with most of them centered around the first few chapters. This was done to collaborate with Kinktober 2020 initially but then the story took on a life of its own.

    Summary

    Eric Shepard and his brand-new partner get stuck in one of the Citadel's infamous elevators. What could possibly go wrong?

     

    **NOT Oenomel canon. This was literally just something I was dared to write by a friend. LOL. It took on a life of its own. Eric and Kaidan's first time (in Alke) will be less scandalous**

    Summary

    "And though life will lay you down
    As the lightning has lately done
    Failing this, failing this
    Follow me, my sweetest friend
    To see what you anointed
    In pointing your gun there
    Lay it down! Nice and slow!
    There is nowhere to go"

    Summary

    In the fallout of the worst string of decisions in his life, Kolyat Krios does his best to push on with his head up, taking whatever job Bailey pushes on him with C-Sec. However, atonement is never simple, and forgiveness seems impossible when your issues span ten years and a shattered family.

    His life is further unravelled when he meets Indigo Carter, a newcomer to the Citadel intent on forging herself a place in the galaxy. For her, life’s anxieties revolve around coursework and orchestras, but when a man is murdered in front of her, Indigo finds herself on the fringes of an underground war that threatens to unravel the station.

    An underworld of violent crime, ruthless betrayals, and deadly grudges cuts jagged marks into the Citadel’s idyllic shine, and when the Reapers eventually come, they almost feel like a welcome cleaning service.

    Summary

    The Passage is a series of vignettes of various PsOV that connects The Null Room and The War Room. it's rated Explicit for language and sexual content (though i suppose it could be considered closer to "Mature"? i'm bad at ratings. and summaries.)

    These pieces jump around, not only in POV, but in time. They play around with dispensing plot in the form of emails, IMs - even dreams. There are some sticky moral decisions and other non-comfy stuff in here (as well as the dreaded Original Characters), so YMMV.

    a couple of notes:

    if you're just reading for the Shepard-Vega 'ship, there is always the option of skipping some of the chapters; you'll miss a bunch of plot that will likely become important later, but you'll catch enough to make sense if you read 1, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15.

    if you want to skip the explicit stuff (or, conversely, if you're reading JUST for the explicit stuff, not gonna judge), it's in 9 and 11. there's a disclaimer on 9, and you might want to pay attention to it. in addition, if you've skipped around, you might not recognize why Chapter 9 exists or who the characters are.
