    Summary

    Deep in the forests of Romania lies a castle known to very few. Hidden and far from the prying eyes of the rest of the world, it is the type of place that none can find and even less can leave.

    A derelict haven in which the escaped Helmut Zemo can reside and live in secret. Or so he thinks, until a bloodied and terrified young woman stumbles into his refuge one night, completely unaware of who she is about to encounter.

    Herein lies the dilemma, for he cannot let her go. Not after she’s seen both him and this place. But for some reason, he cannot quite bring himself to kill her either.

    Summary

    Count Raphael Lésagero of Bordeaux, France must marry a young woman for his beastly curse to be broken. After nearly a decade of being a monster, he's not even sure anymore if he wants to be human again. But when Miss Dalia O'Bruadair—a young woman from overseas—comes to stay in his castle, everything changes.

    Note: The story takes place between the 1850s and 1880s in Bordeaux, France, and Georgia, USA. It garners inspiration mainly from Beauty and the Beast and French history but also Gone with the Wind and American/Native American history in later chapters.

It was slow at first; a spreading warmth despite the impossible cold, and then it all hit at once. Like a signal beacon lit for battle, Steve returned to his body and everything in him – brain, limb, heart and more – knew one thing and one thing only.

    Summary

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix of the canon with OC and AU spanning ME1-3.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Once a druglord's slave, Jane met a strange drell one evening that changed her life. After enlisting in the Alliance and burying her origins, Jane gained a reputation as a closed-off, mysterious paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, now struggling with changes from her visions caused by touching the beacon on Eden Prime. Her affinity for aliens, and one turian in particular, becomes a problem among human-centric politicians as humanity gains a foothold in the galaxy.

    The story explores multiple tones and motifs, including a deeper look at Drell beliefs, a character study of Thane, a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus concerning his metamorphosis into Archangel, and a closer read of Liara's transformation into the Shadowbroker. Includes slips into the surreal with an emphasis on original expanded lore, symbolism, belief systems, language, and culture within the Mass Effect Universe.
