    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

    “Where do you like best to feed your flocks?” said a man to an old cow-herd.
    “Here, sir, where the grass is neither too rich nor too poor, or else it is no use.”
    “Why not?” asked the man.
    “Do you hear that melancholy cry from the meadow there?” answered the shepherd, “that is the bittern; he was once a shepherd, and so was the hoopoe also. I will tell you the story. . . .”—The Bittern and the Hoopoe, The Brothers Grimm

    OR: “A meet-cute meets soap opera meets half-assed police procedural/buddy-cop movie,” in which Det. Garrus Vakarian’s upbeat, idiot partner falls head-over-heels in stupid-lust with a volatile, outspoken, annoyingly hot Yoga instructor. Garrus, meanwhile, plays it smart, and sticks to bonding with and obsessing over said idiot partner’s capable, clever, compellingly unpredictable—and also annoyingly hot—father.

    Because Garrus is smart.

    Summary

    Eight months after the First Contact War, Salome Haw is still trying to get her balance. She's got a job, an apartment, and a wedding to attend, but it's hard being the new species in the galaxy. Especially when someone is trying to kill you. But because she is really bad at prioritizing, that might be the least of her concerns.

    Relationships, new and old, feel far more lethal.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything to see justice done when the opportunity presented itself. That's not normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal.

    Maybe they were. Maybe... they were *very* personal.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167. T minus 16 years until Eden Prime. A story of talented people who aren't exactly whole inside, but find some of the missing pieces in the warm regard of unexpected friends.

    Caffeine addictions. Spectre missions. Boring council meetings. C-Sec. The people behind the legends, and bullets. Many, many bullets...

    Summary

    Captain Jane Shepard, former Alliance N7 who left the military after the events on Akuze, is our justice seeking C-Sec agent. Commander Garrus Vakarian is our Commander and next in line to be the Council’s next Spectre. We are flopping the story backwards folks, let's see how this plays out.

    ******2/22 UPDATE: Upon further inspection, which to my fault is no lie, basically all my previous chapters have so many mistakes. I’m going to be going through them again and fixing them. I just wish I wasn’t the one who had to do it. Lol.

    So some edits will be happening.

    Don’t be scared.
