    Summary

    Sometimes, all it takes is one decision to change everything. For Nathaly Shepard, it was accepting a new post from her old mentor, and a mission that quickly turned into a war.

    When a rogue turian threatens human civilization, Nathaly is forced to grow into the spectre she was perhaps never meant to be. Amid the chaos of burning colonies and hostile AI, she forges lifelong friendships, falls in love despite herself, and fights for a home she never thought she'd have- while a secret fifty thousand years old threatens to take it all away.

    A reimagined Mass Effect 1, that keeps to the spirit of the canon while deepening connections between events and characters, delving into backstories, and expanding the narrative.

    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

    Thousands of years ago, the Protheans vanished without a trace, leaving virtually no record of their existence, other than a vague and cryptic myth of a hidden treasure of untold riches and knowledge. When a Prothean relic is uncovered and brought to the Citadel Archives for the world to see, archaeologist Kaidan Alenko isn’t so sure that it’s just an artifact. Unfortunately for him, Cerberus and notorious acquisitions contractor Jane Shepard are sure that the artifact may hold the key to finding the ancient treasure as well. Racing against one another to find answers and clues, the hunt leads them on an adventure through harsh landscapes and trials, in hopes of finding a treasure worth dying for.

    Summary

    Shepard isn't conventional, she knows that.
    It's why her best friends are the most flirtatious turian alive, the most sarcastic man she's ever met and a krogan who intimidates nearly everyone he meets. It's why she doesn't hold a grudge against the turians at all, even though her Dad died during the first contact war. It's why she followed in her parent's footsteps, joining the Alliance, despite her mother warning her against it. She trusts her gut instincts. It's why she risked an Alliance mission to save a single alien, and why she readily accepted another's offer to join her crew, after only speaking to him twice.

    Garrus isn't conventional, he knows that.
    Despite working hard during his military service, and following in his father's footsteps when he joined C-Sec, as was expected. Despite his career being successful and advancing quickly. Despite being considered quite the eligible bachelor. He's a bad turian. He chaffs against the red tape and politics of his job. He finds no satisfaction in it or the company he keeps. It's why he doesn't hesitate to offer his services to the striking alien on her mission to do what he couldn't. It's why he'd follow her into her human hell and back.

    Summary

    Clarke Griffin is straight outta Systems Alliance Academy, with quite high rank that she deserved. She takes her assignation to a space ship that she would be serving on for the next several years. She is quite terrified when it turns out that she would serve under command of Commander Shepard, a bloody marine's icon. She had dark past that everyone has just scratched, nobody knows more about her. Even her name is a mystery. Clarke is scared of her future, she wanted to serve aboard a ship where she would feel good, appreciated and, at least, wanted, and she just landed there, on the Normandy, trying to solve all the mysteries that her life threw to her. All she could do is hope that maybe fate would be more pleasant than commander Shepard during their first conversation.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything to see justice done when the opportunity presented itself. That's not normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal.

    Maybe they were. Maybe... they were *very* personal.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167. T minus 16 years until Eden Prime. A story of talented people who aren't exactly whole inside, but find some of the missing pieces in the warm regard of unexpected friends.

    Caffeine addictions. Spectre missions. Boring council meetings. C-Sec. The people behind the legends, and bullets. Many, many bullets...
