    Summary

    Commander Shepard is well acquainted with death. Her life is full of death. But for Shepard, living is harder.

    After the end of the Reaper War, all the fleets of the galaxy are stuck in Sol. There are significant consequences for the galaxy and the Normandy crew. Once the relays re-open, more complications await. What happens when the fight is over? How do we cope with limitations? What is important now? How do we choose to live? Do we grow, or do we wither?

    This story takes place in the 10 years after the Reaper War. This is a character driven story, with some larger plot elements at play.

    Summary

    Keepers are not born. They simply are. One moment they are something else, and the other they become solid, corporeal, their bodies and minds programmed to serve a singular purpose: to maintain the Relay no matter the cost. Neither the past nor the future concerns them; all that matters is that this space station will serve its intended purpose when the time comes. Whether this time will come or how they will know it is time is not in their control; it is none of their business.

    In the grand scheme of things, the Keeper supposes its uniqueness is unimportant. After all, it is one of the many keepers created to maintain the Relay, receiving orders from the Intelligence and executing them, and the fact that it was not assigned a code or a number when it was created has minimal effect on its work. The Intelligence can contact it, and it can report to the Intelligence after its task is done. Simple. And so it carries on upholding its duty and doing its job.

    Summary

    "I would like to be the air
    that inhabits you for a moment
    only. I would like to be that unnoticed
    & that necessary."
    - Margaret Atwood, "Variation on the Word Sleep"

    The galaxy is forever changed after Commander Jane Shepard destroyed the Reapers. But it isn't just the galaxy that was changed: its inhabitants were too, some for better, others for worse. Most people don't know what happened to the commander, not even her boyfriend, Major Kaidan Alenko. What he does know is this: no matter how far away the two of them are, the two of them will rebuild their lives together.

    Summary

    It's been a long road and the outcome is still unclear. We've learned to rely on each other as, colleagues, allies... friends. The Reapers mean to take that from us. They've taken our homes and our sense of security. They plan to take our lives... Everything we are, or ever will be... wiped away in the name of 'order'. It's time we took the fight to them. We push back... and we take back our future. I'll lead us to victory... or die trying.
    -Commander Shepard, Alliance Navy, Spectre
