    Summary

    Esmée Lysette Shepard has witnessed monstrosities throughout her life, but never before has she been accompanied by those that were willing to experience said horrors by her side, including the man that she finds herself adoring so shamelessly. Never would she have guessed that she would be taken on an emotional roller-coaster thanks to a delusional turian, but it is because of this journey that she realizes how she's isolated herself over the years and never willing to open herself into relationship.

    If Kaidan Alenko realized the atrocity she was during her childhood, then he would never come to accept her for the woman she has become. But he will never have that chance to discover the morbid, cynical being she is as long as she kept a tight leash on her emotions.

    What could happen between them once that leash snaps and she releases her inner demons upon all those that crossed her?

    Summary

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

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    The battle always seems to begin when I lay down or when I stop. Depression. Exhaustion creeps into my limbs, feeling of worthlessness leeches my emotions into a numb state, tears that won’t fall sting my eyes, each breath more difficult to take than the last, cynical thoughts reverberate from my very being. Is any of this worth it? What is the point? In the end it won’t matter. Knowing what was coming I looked over to the square black Xbox sitting next to the T.V. Mass Effect TM Andromeda laid on top of it.
    Lightning scorched the sky and the room rumbled with its power. I stood with unsteady legs. Turn it on and play.

    Summary

    Secrets are power on Kadara, a currency more valuable than credits, and Reyes is filthy rich in them.

    Lola Ryder was thrust into a position of authority, one she never wanted and resents being given. While the Nexus pushes her to succeed, but expects her to fail, Lola gets things done by any means necessary. She isn't the heroine The Nexus wanted, but she may be exactly what they needed.

And it's also not like she's got new aliens to deal with and Kett to kill. She can totally manage. No problem, whatsoever.

     

    A retelling of Mass Effect: Andromeda with heavy focus on the Jaal/Ryder romance.

    Summary

    Tristen "Tris" Ryder has never had it easy, so he doesn't expect things to just go well in Andromeda, despite what his sister and father say. But honestly, who ever expects things to go THIS wrong?

     

    A story about one unfortunate soul, dragged to a galaxy he never wanted to see, and how his misfortune might actually be Andromeda's saving grace.

     

    VERY AU. Still same basic-ish plot but a lot of differences. Scott-centric, except his name is Tris here. Very slow burn. Contains emotional neglect/abuse by (a) family member(s), a lot of self-doubt and self-worth issues, anxiety, anger, and depression. Also, slash.

    ** What started off as a quick 'Hey, a Soulmate AU could be fun! One where they didn't go to Andromeda!' and then swiftly turned into 'But what if Lily was still alive, but her Soulmate had died? Maybe she'd meet someone else, or-" and now is just. Going where it wants to.

    An AU of my own OC fic. Oops.

    Written for the Mass Effect Creative Circle Mini-Challenge of angsty romantic prompts. For a further point in My Superhero AU: Alter Ego Timeline.

    The Illusive Man has captured Spectre, and unfortunately, her lover and Partner Sentinel is in for an unpleasant surprise when he finds her, having to draw upon anything he can think of to break the sinister hold on her mind...
