    Summary

    Commander Veronika Shepard, Hero of the Blitz and Sole Survivor of Akuze, is candidate to be the first human Spectre. The mission that brings her spectre status ends up being larger than humanity. She has a loyal crew to help her succeed, and finds not only camaraderie, but also love. Her relationship with her fellow marine Kaidan Alenko is put through a severe test, fraternization regulations being only one problem they face. Strays slightly from canon. Rated M for later chapters.

    Summary

    The first contact war was followed by years of hot and cold warfare between humans and turians. Several attempts by the council to force a permanent truce has failed. Now both the Hierarchy and the Alliance has agreed to an armistice which has lasted for 6 years. Gagarin Station (Jump Zero)has been established as a place of reconciliation, where turian recruits and human biotics train side by side as supposed allies. However, old grudges die hard and for some of the students it's hard to let go of the past.

    Will friendship outlast the end of childhood? When team Four is spread across space, divided by duty, will something remain of Jump Zero’s lessons, or will the new emerging enemy strain every relationship past its breaking point?

    New chapters (pretty much) every week!

    Summary

    During the Battle of the Citadel, decisions were made. The Destiny Ascension and the Council were sacrificed to kill the Sovereign Nazara. It was a hard decision. It was a military decision, a necessary decision.

    It was the decision that turned the galaxy against the Systems Alliance, triggering the Betrayal War. The Humans fought but against the entire Galaxy, they couldn't fight forever. And at the same time they knew what the Council denied. the Reapers were coming.

    When they came, as they inevitably would, the Humans called to them. The Reapers came to Earth and a deal was made.

    40 years later, the Council had best be wary, because it was time for the Harvest, and the Humans would lead the way.

    Story takes place over multiple Reaper cycles.

He arrives, and finds trouble that leaves him without his memory and no idea of who he is, just as a lost Garrus Vakarian wanders the station, looking for some form of redemption or relief from the grief of losing Shepard. Something about the waif of a boy reminds him of how lost he was before Shepard, and Garrus takes the human under his wing. He has no idea the trouble that one act of kindness will bring him when the Order of the Pheonix tracks down their lost hero. INCOMPLETE

    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...
