    Summary

    During the Battle of the Citadel, decisions were made. The Destiny Ascension and the Council were sacrificed to kill the Sovereign Nazara. It was a hard decision. It was a military decision, a necessary decision.

    It was the decision that turned the galaxy against the Systems Alliance, triggering the Betrayal War. The Humans fought but against the entire Galaxy, they couldn't fight forever. And at the same time they knew what the Council denied. the Reapers were coming.

    When they came, as they inevitably would, the Humans called to them. The Reapers came to Earth and a deal was made.

    40 years later, the Council had best be wary, because it was time for the Harvest, and the Humans would lead the way.

    Story takes place over multiple Reaper cycles.

    Summary

    After months of hardship, the Normandy crew has somehow been able to produce a galactic army to force their enemy's hand and bring them within touching distance of (yet another) unlikely victory. A ragtag band of their galaxy's deadliest misfits, it was led by a chain-smoking, mildly alcoholic, and flighty Spectre with a sketchy past. On the bright side, she had never ever failed a mission.

    At times, however, fights do not have clear winners and losers, and things are not all they seem. The hero of ages will have some tough choices to make. Then again, creative solutions had always been her forte...

    Summary

    War has a funny effect on people's relationships. It can sometimes ended them, or bring people together, whether it be a two peoples or two individuals. On the SSV Normandy, it did just that; species with known hatred for others set aside differences to help the better cause while also bring certain people together... closer than just a 'mutual' relationship.

    Notice: As of 9/5/16, this story is put on permanent hiatus.
