    Summary

    In the year 2168, two teenagers forced on a camping trip meet. Using only monikers to refer to each other they spend the week together, ending with a promise to meet there again in ten years.

    Nine years pass and Garrus Vakarian arrests Leuitenant Shepard for punching a reporter for Westerlund news, determined to find any scoop on the recent disaster at Akuze, and sparking their friendship. Shepard sidles into his life in a way that seems almost familiar as the time counts down on a childhood promise.

    Summary

    When Electra Shepard wakes from a coma following the destruction of the Reapers, she quickly realizes her happy ending is much more complicated than anyone could have imagined. No one knows how Shepard survived firing the crucible, much less how she is pregnant with Garrus Vakarian's baby. Thrust into the complex politics of rebuilding the galaxy, Electra and Garrus struggle to make their own happiness last while they search for answers.

    Meanwhile, new forces of darkness threaten the galactic peace the crew of the Normandy fought so hard to secure in light of strange discoveries.

    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.

    Summary

    The First Contact War didn't have to happen. That was the consensus of the Citadel Council. The Alliance agreed, for the most part. This is the story of those who were there. It's their account of the events surrounding that conflict and beyond.

    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.

    Summary

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

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Summary

    Immediately post-ME3, Paragon FemShep Control ending, Garrus-centric. The Reapers have vanished, but exact effects of the Crucible remain unknown and the relays have been shattered. A fractured galaxy is left in chaos and disarray, and Harasha Prime - the Council's foremost fuel center and refugee camp - is out of supplies, out of manpower and almost out of time. Solana Vakarian struggles to keep the mining planet from sinking to chaos, but every surviving fleet in the galaxy starves for Harasha's precious fuel - and many of them are prepared to take it by force.

    Garrus has lost Shepherd a second time. After the Council asks him to become a Specter and pick up the pieces she left behind, he repeats history and vanishes amongst the lost and the lawless. Harasha Prime isn't where he pictured a family reunion, but his problems always did look more clear through the scope of a rifle. Her ghost consumes him no matter how far he runs, and sometimes, he thinks being Archangel is safer than being Garrus Vakarian.
