    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.

    Summary

    “Nobody knows why we got these,” Kezk shrugs when Aubine asks about the words painted over her armored hump, “Some people say they’re reminders of people that affected the course of our lives. Some people say they’re soulmates or some other bullshit like that.”
    “What do you say?”
    Kezk laughs and slaps her tiny shoulder. “I say that if you ever want to charge like a krogan, you’ve got to get a handle on those biotics first.”

     

    Aubine Shepard has more words on her than anyone probably should. She has dozens of 'thank yous,' several sets of words from those she's fought and come out the only one standing, and a set of sapphire on her arm she uncovers when she needs to. She's a war hero, one of the most famous Alliance operatives at this point, so she supposes it's a little expected.
    The Reaper is not.
    (Or: a soulmate mark subversion that follows Shepard through the trilogy, looking at the consequences of the trope. Like words from a Reaper.)

    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

    "I waited two years for you, Shepard. There was never a doubt in my heart that you wouldn't figure out some way to come back. It felt like a thousand lifetimes, and I would happily do it again, as long as I knew you were coming back to me."

    A canon story with slight divergences to accommodate my vision for this story.
    Follows through Mass Effect 2 and 3 with all DLC.

    Summary

    Summary

    Shepard has just been told she needs to face the music sometime - especially after she nukes an entire Batarian system. She has to contend not only with her own personal feelings but also with the fact that she's going to be grounded while under the inevitable threat of the Reaper invasion. Her and Garrus are forced to part ways, and it's much more painful than she expects it to be. She doesn't want to admit it, but she would give anything to see him one more time.

    As the Quarians say, "Through tides of light and shoals of dust, I will return to where I began. Keelah Se'lai."

    She just hoped that maybe, one day, fate would bring them back together again.

    NOTE, for new/returning readers: Some of the earlier chapters of this fic are going to be rewritten in the coming days. No content will be lost - anything I remove will be uploaded separately - but I just wanted to place an announcement here in case people wonder where a particular story beat went, etc.

    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

    A generic name for a generic story.

    A soul is given two choices: It can either reincarnate into the world of Mass Effect with the powers of The Gamer, or it can be sent to another world and be reborn. Obviously, it chose the funner option.
