    Summary

    A conclusion to the Mass Effect Trilogy that holds as closely to canon as possible that, adding in a little indoctrination theory, gives some better closure. Includes most of the main characters from the trilogy, with some Shega romance thrown in.

    Cross-posted from fanfiction.net. With the release of the Legendary Edition, I figured it was time to finally migrate it here.

    Summary

    A re-upload of a finished project. Story originally posted on HF starting in 2011 and will span the entire trilogy which wasn't quite according the the original plan. Was persuaded by a few ppl to post on here aswell to find a bigger audience. Fixed the formatting in the earlier chapters to hopefully make it better to read. English is not my native language so expect grammer issues here and there. Alot of dialog is used from a game's playthrough as it heavily tied to and around the game's plot points. I hope you will all enjoy it.

    Original description: Jarod; A guy who has the hots for asari. So we'll follow selective parts of his story and see how well he does in life.

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; from the way his onyx eyes followed the movement, she was confident it was only the beginning.

    *A major re-working/updating of a story I originally wrote between 2014 - 2017*

    Summary

    I sometimes have these ideas that just won't go away until I write them down and do something with them. This is what I'll do with them: post them here. Maybe they will grow up to be something more one day or maybe they are just right, just the way they are. You be the judge! Comments (and requests) welcomed!

    Summary

    In a different reality, the batarians' home systems did not fall to the Reaper invasion on 21 September 2186. It is the day Kaidan Alenko, Alliance Intelligence Specialist, stumbles upon a silent, insidious threat creeping across the galaxy.

    He reluctantly follows orders to team up with Commander John Shepard and stop the threat. Used to working on his own, Kaidan isn't prepared for the mutual attraction igniting between them and quite unexpectedly, he doesn't just have a threat to deal with, he has to grapple with his attraction to Shepard.

    As if matters are not complicated enough, Kaidan has a secret that he does not want anyone, including Shepard, to know. Both weapon and burden, his secret set him apart from the rest of humanity. But when work and attraction collide, he finds himself right in the centre of the storm and his secret exposed.

    After reviewing my posted chapters, I've decided to break them up into smaller chunks. They are pretty dense, so hopefully by doing so, they are easier to read.

But word of the peace negotiations is leaked and the entire geth collective goes silent. Humanity's fragile relationship with the Council is shattered.

    Summary

    When Asher Shepard chose to let the asteroid collide with the Bahak system's mass relay and wipe out over 300,000 batarians, she knew she was making the right choice; she couldn't let the Reapers into the galaxy that easily. She also knew the decision would weigh heavily on her conscience for the rest of her days, and that she'd have to face the consequences.

    On the trip back to Earth, an Alliance lieutenant is assigned to guard her while she's imprisoned. Separated from her ship, her crew, her friends, Asher feels, for the first time, unsteady, but even so, she never would have expected James Vega to be the kind of person to steady her.

    Summary

    Garrus & Elle continue their adventure into Mass Effect 3! This one is a lot exciting and a lot heartbreaking, but it won't be exactly what you expect. Yes, I'm saying that the ending won't be canon because screw that. There's a lot more to come.

    **Not a standalone!** You'll probably be lost if you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first.

    CW/TW: dark themes, tons of angst, graphic descriptions of violence/war, very graphic sex

    It's Bioware's sandbox!

    Summary

    Three years, countless battles, and one fiery ending to the Reaper War.

    Jagher Shepard and Kaidan Alenko knew when they said goodbye before the beam that it might be the last time they saw one another; they'd known since the beginning there was a good chance one or both of them might die in the fight against the Reapers. Jagher would have given anything to make it safely down from the Crucible, but she would never choose saving her life over saving the galaxy. Kaidan wouldn't have expected anything else, but he would have been there with her if he could have.

    But as the galaxy begins to rebuild, and Kaidan and the crew of the Normandy finally make their way back to Earth, the major is met with some unexpected news.

    Shepard is alive.

    Summary

    It's the smaller stories, Doctor...the ones so often unrecorded, that are the most important. The deeds of heroes are nothing without the remembrance of private moments, what shaped them. I would not have mine go untold. And I can think of none better to share them with...than you. -
    A retelling of ME1 through the eyes of Liara T'Soni only, as wrapped in a story set centuries after the Reaper War's beginning.
