    Summary

    One year to the day after arriving in a new universe that she has only seen through an LCD screen before, Tegan Aidoni, a multiverse drifter, gets into the thick of things. She has had only one grace year to get herself ready. She has learned not all is what it seems and she now knows, from long experience, that her knowledge about any universe she once believed was fictional is at best a vague guide and at worst a collection of deadly traps. Even so, it is not within her to just stand aside and watch the worlds burn. She could, no one would know to stop her, but why would she?
    Besides, she has a lot to lose, too. She has found love in places she had not expected to find it and in ways she had known of before, yet also in ways she had never dreamed would be possible. Maybe it is a reward of sorts, maybe it is not. Either way, she does not want to lose those few she truly cares about. Thus, Tegan Aidoni is going to fight for her future. If that ensures others will have a future as well, she won't mind, but she won't overly care much about it either.
    That, and she is also starting to like living lives that are far from her boring first one.
    Let's dance!

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the Earthborn, mostly-Paragon, biotic, misfit heroine of The Null Room and The Passage finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    Disclaimer the First: Shepard's and Vega's 'ship will make more sense if you've read the previous stories.

    Disclaimer the Second: this story is so LONG, in part, because it contains a great deal of dialogue pulled directly from the video game, with minuscule tweaks and mental commentary. i've tried to keep it as (modded - EGM) canon as possible.

    Disclaimer the Third: edited play-through footage is available on Youtube. it runs in tandem with the story (including edited scenes that don't exist in the game - but, i'd argue, could - and added banter). because i'm evidently insane. links in every chapter.

    Disclaimer the Fourth: Contains adult language. Void where prohibited. Please avoid operating heavy machinery while reading this fic.

    Summary

    With an unknown threat looming on the horizon, the crew of the Normandy band together on a mission that tests the limits of their endurability. Yet even in the midst of a mission gone awry, sometimes people find what they weren't even looking for. Slow-burn shenko romance, exploring all avenues of friendship and as they learn to open up to each other.

    I LOVE Mass Effect - as anyone can readily attest to, but there was so much more that could have been explored about the story and wasn't! What does it mean to be a war hero? What does it mean to carry the burden of humanity's first Spectre? How DO you organize a galactic army against the reapers? What about the almost Shepards?

    The games are great - but there's a lot of narrative just waiting to be explored. Crosshairs is more a re-imagining of Mass Effect than it is a retelling. Lots of new concepts, lots of math, more military slang.

    I hope you enjoy the ride :)

    Summary

    Shepard has faced countless enemies; she even defeated the collectors, along with her trusted team. When she goes on a solo mission to Aratoht to spring an Alliance operative from prison and investigate claims of intel on the impending reaper invasion, everything goes wrong. An entire system is wiped out because of her actions. She's prepared to face the consequences, but she isn't prepared for the consequences of cutting ties with Cerberus. Other unexpected consequences are coming her way, too...

    Lieutenant James Vega has to live with his actions on Fehl Prime. An entire colony died because he chose the intel over the people. He'd prefer to drink his leave away in a bar and return to duty as dulled to emotion as possible, but Anderson has other ideas. He finds himself recruited for a surprising assignment; personal security for his hero. She's been mistreated, attacked, betrayed and nearly killed. It's James' job to ensure that no further harm comes to her. He'll take his duty more seriously than anyone could expect.

    Summary

    *THIS IS A COMPLETED FIC. Updates every weekend.*

    After the events of Torfan leave her grounded pending clearance of a mental health evaluation, Commander Jane Shepard is offered a chance to serve as the first human C-Sec Detective. Though many questions are raised regarding the offer, she accepts the opportunity as an alternative to the desk work she's been doing while grounded. Once on the Citadel, she meets the newly minted Detective Vakarian. Working with the impulsive detective proves a challenge Shepard hadn't expected.

    Tasked with solving a double homicide, they get swept up in scenarios that challenge them to find common ground. Both are pushed to their limits as the investigation leads them closer to the elusive Dr. Heart. Once Garrus comes to realize his feelings are changing, he learns things about Shepard that make him question whether it's fair to stand in her way. During a pivotal point where one decision sets them on a trajectory that might thrust them apart for good, they find out just how far they are willing to go to come together again.

    A series of vignettes that tell the story of Commander Elizabeth "Liz" Shepard and the crew of the SSV Normandy an later, Normandy SR-2. Each chapter will have warnings in the beginning notes to warn people of what's up. Each chapter builds upon the next. I will follow the major points of the trilogy but everything else is likely to change based on what my characters do.

    Summary

    In a different reality, the Protheans did the impossible: they defeated and killed the Reapers.

    Thousands of years later, Kaidan Alenko was born to a human father and a mermaid mother. Reconciling all aspects of himself was not an issue, and he was content to keep his Mer heritage a secret.

    On 21 Sept 2186, Kaidan uncovered a silent, insidious threat to the galaxy. Before he knew it, the crisis became personal and his secret was in danger of being exposed.

    To save the galaxy, Major Kaidan Alenko, the lone-wolf Alliance Intelligence specialist, reluctantly teamed up with Commander John Shepard, the first human Spectre - and the one man he's attracted to in a very long time.

    He planned to save the galaxy, protect his secret and manage his attraction to Shepard without ever letting the Commander find out what he was.

    He also forgot the saying about best-laid plans...
