    Summary

    An arrangement negotiated between the Hierarchy and the Alliance at the end of the First Contact conflict leads to the placement of twenty human families on the turian colony world of Oma Ker. Among these families is lieutenant Hannah Shepard and her daughter Jane. Growing up surrounded by turians, Jane finds she doesn't truly belong to either world she's a part of: too turian to be fully human and too human to be fully turian. Struggling to find her place, her only comfort is her closest friend, one she's know since her arrival on Oma Ker: Garrus Vakarian. But as the years go by, she begins to see Garrus as more than just a friend. She must learn to navigate the complexities of straddling two worlds, and the new emotions developing for her best friend, while staying true to herself.

    Takes place in three acts spanning several years, following Shepard and Garrus' changing relationship.

    Summary

    Sometimes, all it takes is one decision to change everything. For Nathaly Shepard, it was accepting a new post from her old mentor, and a mission that quickly turned into a war.

    When a rogue turian threatens human civilization, Nathaly is forced to grow into the spectre she was perhaps never meant to be. Amid the chaos of burning colonies and hostile AI, she forges lifelong friendships, falls in love despite herself, and fights for a home she never thought she'd have- while a secret fifty thousand years old threatens to take it all away.

    A reimagined Mass Effect 1, that keeps to the spirit of the canon while deepening connections between events and characters, delving into backstories, and expanding the narrative.

    Summary

    Three years earlier a quarian woman got rescued by a dashing commander who let her join his crew and go off to save the galaxy. They'd become friends, confidants, companions. But she'd been to naive, too shy to tell him how she'd really felt.

    And then she'd watched him die.

    Or so she thought. Until he showed up, alive, two years after watching the cold abyss of space take him.

    She thought she'd mourned him; thought she'd moved on, but seeing him standing in front of her again, hearing his voice again, brings back all the old feelings. And a whole slew of new ones.

    Pulled between loyalties to her people, her father, and her commnader, can Tali sort through her emotions, doubts, and hopes to find the courage to finally tell Shepard how she feels?

    Summary

    Shepard isn't conventional, she knows that.
    It's why her best friends are the most flirtatious turian alive, the most sarcastic man she's ever met and a krogan who intimidates nearly everyone he meets. It's why she doesn't hold a grudge against the turians at all, even though her Dad died during the first contact war. It's why she followed in her parent's footsteps, joining the Alliance, despite her mother warning her against it. She trusts her gut instincts. It's why she risked an Alliance mission to save a single alien, and why she readily accepted another's offer to join her crew, after only speaking to him twice.

    Garrus isn't conventional, he knows that.
    Despite working hard during his military service, and following in his father's footsteps when he joined C-Sec, as was expected. Despite his career being successful and advancing quickly. Despite being considered quite the eligible bachelor. He's a bad turian. He chaffs against the red tape and politics of his job. He finds no satisfaction in it or the company he keeps. It's why he doesn't hesitate to offer his services to the striking alien on her mission to do what he couldn't. It's why he'd follow her into her human hell and back.
