    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

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix of the canon with OC and AU spanning ME1-3.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Once a druglord's slave, Jane met a strange drell one evening that changed her life. After enlisting in the Alliance and burying her origins, Jane gained a reputation as a closed-off paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, now struggling with visions caused by the beacon on Eden Prime. Her affinity for aliens, and one renegade turian in particular, becomes a problem among human-centric politicians as humanity gains a foothold in the galaxy. As time and the fate of all organic life hangs in the balance, her entanglement with the drell who changed her life further complicates matters.

    The story explores multiple motifs, including a deeper look at drell beliefs (including conlang), a character study of Thane, a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus/Archangel, a study of turian culture and history, and a close read of Liara's transformation into the Shadowbroker. Includes expanded lore, religion, and language within the Mass Effect Universe.

    Summary

    In 2170 Mindoir was raided by batarian slavers, killing or enslaving the entire colony. It was thought that the first human spectre, Commander Shepard, was the sole survivor of the brutal attack. But when evidence that his sister is alive comes to light, his world is turned upside down.

    Yet, survival comes at a cost. After all, heroes aren't born from happiness. And this tale delves into a dark, brutal world as we come to know the siblings who had the courage to endure and stand against the tide.

    A story of resiliency, determination, and hope in a galaxy of disrepair. This fic will follow our young heroes through the conclusion of The Reaper War. Yet, this is not a simple retelling of the trilogy. The entire war will be rewritten in order to give our galactic villains, The Reapers, the respect they deserve.

    * Any chapter(s) with graphic, sexual violence will be prefaced with a warning, and easily skippable. While abuse is never portrayed in a positive light, it is present. And even though I devolve into humor, banter, and what I hope to be heart-warming moments, there are psychological aspects and scenes some may find uncomfortable.

    Summary

    Exploring Garrus’ unhealthy relationship with obsession and black/white thinking. Beginning with his time on Omega as he struggles to come to terms with his past, his growing anxiety, his grief about losing Shepard, and how intertwined his relationship to her was with his obsession with Saren. He knows he’s behaving recklessly but if he is going to throw his life away, he can make it mean something. He’s done living his life for himself, but too proud and cocky to throw it away for himself either.

    Enter Sidonis. The story of Archangel: Angst, ambition, love, betrayal, revenge, forgiveness, acceptance, and the grey spaces in between.

    Building off of Mass Effect: Homeworlds #3, story starts on Omega and builds through the plots of Mass Effect 2 and 3. Garrus x Sidonis + eventual Shakarian. Will update tags as they become relevant.

    Summary

    Shepard sent him away so she could run for the beam and save the galaxy, but Garrus Vakarian won't be left behind that easily.

    --

    I would do just about anything for her if she asked.

    Now, though, she's ordering me to sit on the sidelines for the most important mission of our lives, to wait around and hope she can handle whatever is up there on her own. I guess I've found the one thing I won't do for her.

    A good turian would follow a bad order from his commander, but I've never been a good turian. I'll be damned if I start being one now.
