    Summary

    In which, Shepard is an idiot, Garrus isn't far behind, and everyone else can see it despite the cultural misunderstandings and miscommunication. Throw some manufactured sex pollen into the mix and, somehow, everything works out for the best. At least, for a while. Before it, y'know, all goes to shit again. Somewhere at the end of it all, they'll be happy and together.

    Summary

    The moment – the second – he finally arrived there for the first time and fell into her embrace in the hospital room, she seemed lost to him all over again. It was her, but it wasn’t. She was silent. Unwilling. Guilty of every little thing that could never have been her fault.

    It’s been months since the Reapers were taken down. The road to recovery is twisted.

    Summary

    Carrie Shepard became the first human Spectre and saved the Citadel, leaving herself a legacy. And then she was lost in an attack on the Normandy.

    And as far as she is concerned, a resurrection putting her in the pocket of the enemy is not at all an acceptable alternative to death.

    Summary

    From the moment the Prothean Beacon hit Zarha Shepard's brain, nothing was ever going to be the same. Not her life, and certainly not the space inside her own head. And if that wasn't enough, now she's got a crew that's worming their way past her usual defenses.

    Nothing ever turns out like she thought it would. And maybe that's not so bad this time.

    Fic is fully drafted, updates Mondays and Thursdays. Most chapters are short and snappy.

    Summary

    Shepard has gone through a lot. From a kid left alone in a dark world after the death of his parents and friends on Mindoir, to his victory against the enemy on Torfan, and to his ultimate fight against the Reapers, he had battled against truly terrible odds.

    Shepard didn't like himself. Not really. Dealing with the ghosts of his past was hard enough without having to fight the present as well. Garrus, his truest friend, would help the soldier, but it wouldn't be until he met a certain Quarian named Tali that things would really start to change.

    Maybe she was the one that could heal his scars.

    At least he hoped.

     

    (Covers Pre-Mass Effect 1, all the way to Post-Mass Effect 3. I have changed a lot of things and though I will skip over parts you can expect this to be both a different adventure and both the same.)

    Summary

    Given the fact that he and his friends are psychic teenagers who can summon manifestations of the soul, and the fact that the year of 2011 was spent solving an unsolvable murder mystery while simultaneously scoring a seriously cute girlfriend, Minoru Sakamoto and the Investigation Team's lives have been nothing short of bizarre. He genuinely, truly thought that with all the supernatural madness becoming such a daily staple of his life, it couldn't possibly get weirder.

    So yeah, of course he was wrong. He shouldn't have agreed alongside his seven friends and his petite, musician girlfriend to partake in an experimental cryogenic experiment that could go wrong even for the one hour you're supposed to have been in stasis for. Even if he was paid with a free tuition like the rest of his friends, all he has to show for it now is being booted 172 years into the future to be recruited into a classified military outfit that has like-minded Persona users in a galaxy-spanning empire.

    Seriously, this is the limit of weirdness possible. It can't get weirder than this, right?

    ...right?

    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

    For the Mass Effect kinkmeme prompt: "Shepard and her LI (be that Garrus or Thane) are captured by mercenaries/rogue Cerberus agents/whoever and their captors threaten to gangrape Shepard unless the LI takes her in front of them. Having no other choice, the LI agrees. Bonus points for writing the aftermath - Shepard's rage and helplessness and the intense guilt the LI feels over what happened, viewing himself as a rapist despite having been as much of a victim as her. Bring on the angst, anon!"
    This is gonna be a long one.

    Summary

    Hawke has returned from the Deep Roads after escaping Ferelden and its Blight, having gained a large fortune, but lost her sister, Bethany, in the process to Kirkwall's Circle and later her mother, Leandra, to a serial killer. She is forced to attempt to keep the peace between the Arishok and the Viscount of Kirkwall, and between the very tense Mages and Templars.

    As part of the Lazarus Project, Commander Shepard was rebuilt by Cerberus after sacrificing herself for her squad after their ship was targeted by an unknown vessel, and has been given the task of investigating the mysterious Collectors who work for the Reapers, threatening the galaxy's safety. She has constructed a crew of new and old members, and must travel through the Omega-4 Relay, from which no one has ever returned.

    Both Hawke and Shepard have their destinies planned out for them. Hawke is on track to become the Champion of Kirkwall, Shepard on her way to making another dent in the Reaper's plans of galaxy-wide destruction... But one day, the pair in their respective universes come across strange artefacts that do not belong to either of their worlds. A link connects them, and they are pulled from their lives and into the other's.

    Summary
