    Summary

    Trying to save the universe isn't just point and shoot. It's dangerous, gritty, and painful. It's sleepless nights, loss of appetite, addictions, endless politics, and injuries. But there are bright moments where your friends and crew are there for you, when connections are made, and where you love each other unconditionally. You are all brethren born of ash and flame and baptized in battle together. You are shaped by wit and banter, alcohol and war stories. This is the story of how deep friendships go, how they were forged, and how the beginning of the end molds Shepard and Garrus into one solid front against it.

    Summary

    Carrie Shepard became the first human Spectre and saved the Citadel, leaving herself a legacy. And then she was lost in an attack on the Normandy.

    And as far as she is concerned, a resurrection putting her in the pocket of the enemy is not at all an acceptable alternative to death.

    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    Indigo Carter, hoping to forge a place for herself in the galaxy, moves to Tayseri Ward to study at Auxua School of the Arts. Juggling coursework, orchestras, new friends, and her own insecurities, she does her best to settle in. However, she never imagined she'd be making the acquaintance of a drell whose knee-jerk reaction to his estranged father’s apparent death involved attempted assassination.

    In the fallout of the worst string of decisions in his life, Kolyat Krios does his best to push on with his head up. However, atonement is never simple, and forgiveness seems impossible when your issues span ten years and a shattered family. As he navigates his past while trying to determine his future, he uncovers a sinister plot that threatens to unravel the Citadel itself.

    When paths, choices, and consequences collide, life becomes such a messy ordeal that when the Reapers come, they almost feel like a welcome cleaning service.

    (Rated for language, themes, eventual violence and sex.)

    Summary

    Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary. They are made by the path they choose, not the powers they are graced with. They're someone who steps up, when everyone else steps down. Everyone has an opinion on them, for good or bad, especially when they're as striking as a certain Commander Shepard.

    Nicola, an artist-turned-nurse after the war, helps a turian soldier recover and forms a bond with him. In the mean-time, the search for Shepard and the survivors from the Normandy continues.

    Summary

    Reader was a frontliner for the Alliance Army, was a Mercenary in the Terminus System, was a lot of things. After a Massive loss leading to a numbed state of life, Reader doesn't really see much worth living for, other than the basics: Food, Water, Shelter. No passion, no drive, those were lost with her comrades. A pale shell of a human who lost their red blood in battle. At least until they're revived by Green.

    Summary

    Garrus is drinking away his sorrow of visiting the Citadel, chasing away memories of watching Shepard run toward the beam. Remembering the last time he heard her voice, hearing her say she loved him, he is stunned to find Purgatory putting on a special show that seems to be tailored for him. A girl with red hair, freckles and conviction in her performance is hard for him to resist as he climbs on stage with her. Except it isn't her, he's drunk and there are lots of people recording his embarrassing moment for the entire extranet. Not his finest moment....

    Later the vid is broadcasted across the extranet in a hilariously embarrassing moment and he's waking up in c-sec having to explain himself. Once again Garrus Vakarian is famous and so is the mysterious dancer. After getting to know her in a more sober mood he's called away for work.

    It's revealed to him that the now unified races of the Galaxy have been secretly trying to reawken the Geth and their lab has been ransacked and everyone is dead. Garrus begins a new mission that he's not sure he can handle on his own, flanked by memories and insecurities. What would Shepard do?
