    Summary

    A long time ago, David Anderson almost became a Spectre.

    Keyword 'almost'.

    Decades later, the opportunity has arisen for his daughter - Natalie Shepard - to join the very same ranks that he was once denied of. The only problem is, of course, that his darling daughter - known throughout the Milky Way as the Butcher of Torfan - wants nothing to do with the Alliance.

    When David and Shepard reunite, she's led to the rank no human alive or dead have ever achieved before; with a catch. With terrifying visions of the end of the world plaguing her mind, a failed past relationship sitting in the pilot's seat, and a dewy-eyed Lieutenant making her recheck the regulations handbook, Shepard has to balance her fledgling alliance between the different races of the galaxy and her loyalty to humanity.

    (This is a retelling of the games. Same events still happen (usually), just retold and refitted. Please read & review and, most importantly, enjoy yourself!)

    Summary

    Shepard was his hero. Alliance poster-child, CO of the Normandy, bearer of more medals than he had fingers. She was everything he ever wanted to be. Lieutenant James Vega wore her influence proudly, certain that everything Shepard did was for the greater good.

    But now, years later, life for Shepard has changed. She's faced with the stark reality: no longer a decorated Alliance hero, she is imprisoned and disgraced, stripped of all rank and privilege and left to rot in a jail cell. To the outside galaxy she is a source of disgust and fear - and yet it's Lt. James Vega, the most disillusioned of all, who offers her a chance at retribution. But saving the galaxy twice has left her with more scars than anybody could ever realise; James is forced to help her face her past, present, and the uncertain future of a galaxy under threat of complete annihilation.

    Summary

    The Great Dilemma was not about inevitable conflict between organics and synthetics. That was a lie. The truth was far grander and at the same time far closer. The races of the Galaxy had one name for it: Mass Effect.

    And he was going to have to fix it.

    As a 10-year-old.

    Well shit.
