    Summary

    When Mindoir is attacked by Batarian slavers, sixteen-year-old Cara Jane Shepard is saved not by the Alliance, but by the mercenary Zaeed Massani. She joins his small mercenary operation, picking up other familiar faces along the way.

    Now, 28-year-old Shepard is helping to lead the crew, and a job with a huge payday comes their way. Millions of credits and practically served to them on a silver platter, it's just too good to pass up. Plus, Eden Prime is a backwoods paradise colony. What could go wrong?

    It seems that Shepard's fate is sealed when it comes to the Prothean artifact, but has her life been changed too much to make a difference when the Reapers threaten the galaxy.

    Summary

    How can you do whatever it takes to win a war when you have something to live for?

    Shepard can't afford to be anything but wholly focused on defeating the Reapers, and James desperately wants to atone for his mistake at Fehl Prime. Against the backdrop of a galactic war for survival, Shepard and James grapple with what it means to be both humanity's saviours and humans themselves.

    (Starts pre-ME3 and goes through the game. Sequel to my fic Precipice - not required reading but would probably help!)

    Summary

    EDIT: We present to you: the revamp of Twins! Enjoy!

    Welcome to the adventures of Zach & Julia Shepard! In this fic you'll find the familiar style and format of Chronicles with a different setting for Zach - one where Julia didn't only survive Mindoir, but where she's also his fraternal twin. This work will provide a different perspective of the events from the Mass Effect trilogy - one where it's less focused on the all-life-threatening Reapers, and more about the personal journeys and relationships in the midst of a terrifying war, as well as the prevalent discrimination against human biotics.

    What if... there were two Commander Shepards?
    What if... Zach and Julia were twins?
    What if... they both survived Mindoir?
    What if... for the entirety of the Reaper Wars, Jules and Zach had to find a way to agree on decisions and compromise?

    Get ready to meet some new Original Characters, see Zach Shepard in action again, and accompany Julia on her road to healing and self exploration.

    This fic is a collaboration between LoppaGoppa (creator of Miko Mohri, Arden Galanis, Lotus Hamade & the rest of Violet Squad) and Sharaxis (creator of Zach and Julia Shepard).

    Summary

    Shepard chose to destroy the Reapers.

    My take on what happened after ME3, lots of angst, Shepard is very broken, but it'll eventually have a happy end.

    Follow on piece to 'And the Sky Full of Stars', but can be read as a standalone (they got together in late ME3)

    Summary

    For years, Commander Shepard believed his sister to be dead or enslaved. But when new evidence comes to light regarding Jane, Shepard isn't sure what to make of his long-lost sibling.

    [AU, Shepard siblings. Slow-burn Jane/Tali (and perhaps one more later on). John's pairing to be decided later. Some chapters from John's POV, but mostly Jane's.]

    [Some chapters might contain images.]

    Summary

    Kaidan is dead.
    Well, not literally. Not yet anyway.
    So he’s dying. His clock is running out. The sands are just about through the hourglass.

    All that’s left to do is wait until his inevitable end.
    And if he’s going to die anyway, he may as well make himself useful.
    It’s the least he can do for Captain Anderson.
    For the Commander.

    OR

    Kaidan feels guilty about the Prothean beacon, about Shepard getting hurt. But luckily he's great at compartmentalizing.

    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 throughout that some may find uncomfortable.

    Summary

    After the siege on Torfan, the Alliance thanked Jordan Shepard for a job well done, and quietly discharged her from the military. Adrift, she finds herself on Omega, working for Aria T'Loak. When she's hired by Matriarch Aethyta to guard her daughter on a human colony, Shepard is thrown back into Alliance politics — and an ancient conspiracy that might end life in the galaxy as she knows it.

    Newly graduated from Serrice University, with only a few archeological digs behind her, Liara T'Soni finds her first real job on Eden Prime, consulting with the Alliance after a Prothean artifact is discovered on the colony. She doesn't expect her estranged father to send a bodyguard, and she certainly doesn't expect that guard to be the Butcher of Torfan. When Shepard activates the beacon, Liara is drawn into something she believes is impossible, and the fate of the galaxy suddenly depends on her and the human touched by the beacon.

    Summary

    When the afterlife spits her out one more time, Shepard has to come to peace with living in the world where war is seemingly no more. Not all is great in the paradise as new conflicts emerge from the old wounds. For the first time in her life, Charry Shepard can’t help but think that Reaper invasion was the easiest part of being a hero / A series of stories exploring the Mass Effect universe after Charry Shepard makes the ultimate sacrifice… but still gets her happy ending. Post-Synthesis / primarily Shakarian / Colonist War Hero Shepard / Project Lazarus 2.0 / Less of a fix-it and more of a loophole-it (totally possible if Normandy crew and Reapers worked together)
