    Summary

    My take on Commander Shepard's surrender to the Alliance at the end of Mass Effect 2. The Collector Base is destroyed and the Normandy crew survived. Now it's time for Shepard to face the music. She takes all the blame and knows it will probably bury her under but she doesn't expect that someone has set a plan in motion to make sure she stays buried.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard finally goes to Illium where her past lover happens to be. Death and a two-year separation can't be good for any relationship. Do they even still have one? Shepard and Liara find the answer to this question the hard way. This story is set during the events of Mass Effect 2. (Inspired by another work I read long ago and can't remember even where. Something like a remix.)

    Summary

    Newly promoted Commander Vakarian is the head of the advanced turian ship, 'Normandy'. And, as tradition, he is expected to find a human and "break" it in. As goes, if you can tame a stubborn, spitfire, persistent alien you have proven your ability to do pretty much anything. Or at least show your ability to honor traditions, which is nearly as important. Vakarian himself is not sold on the idea but it would be a bad move on his part to just ignore an important rite.

    There is hope however. After an incident in a back alley, a fiery human with an attitude to rival his own will provide him a possible out. Or give him a migraine to last him a lifetime.

    Fic is mostly "idiot ex-soldier pisses off space bird" and Shepard being...well, Shepard.

    Very brief mentions of rape in the second and third chapter. Not center of the fic. Trigger warning applied where needed.

    Summary

    Relief is too small a word for what Shepard feels when he sees Garrus (Palavan on fire above them, so close he can almost reach up and burn his hand). He sighs and all the anxiety from the last six months falls away, sliding down his arms to drip off his fingertips. He knows this is only temporary. That the war will come rushing back to embrace him with unrelenting necromancer’s arms. But for now, this is enough.

    Garrus.

    Alive.

    He nearly weeps.

    He nearly chokes from laughing.

    Loving Kaidan was, to Shepard, the most natural thing since he was 5 years old, Kaidan not loving him back, was the only thing Shepard knew since he was 5 years old.

    Summary

    There are times when Garrus wonders what is so wrong with him that he finds a human, and a male at that, attractive. But then he’ll remember how John would go and blow up a merc base with a grin or rush an entire horde of Collectors by himself or yell at the Council with a snarl in his voice that never fails to send a jolt down Garrus’s spine and, well-- it’s not that much of a mystery after all.

    Summary

    What Kaidan thought was going to be sitting in a circle with a bunch of artsy peeps, watching old ass paintings became a full-on journey through time and ‘literary movements’, whatever the fuck that meant. Not only that, but 2 tests, several assignments and 3 main projects, with the third one counting the same as the tests together, in only 4 months the term lasted, well… for the first time since he started college, he wanted to go back to Slope Design and Containments, which he had to take twice because he failed the class the first time.
