    Summary

    Hey Commander,

    We’re on our way back to Earth. Not for you; you’re definitely dead. I said we should find a beach somewhere and retire, but no one ever listens to me. Garrus and Liara said we’re going to Earth because that’s what you would want. Which I guess means it’s kind of for you. If I can get the Normandy off of Sur’Kesh. I mean, I can definitely get her off of Sur’Kesh. After everyone else fixes her.

    Oh, by the way; Garrus is an asshole now. You know how he always had that stick up his ass? Yeah, now it’s a club. A big one. I don’t know how he fits it up there when he’s not using it to beat everyone into his way of thinking. The only person he’s afraid to use it on is Liara, and I’m pretty sure that’s because he knows she’ll put him in stasis if he gets too out of line. He’s pissed that you died. Pissed that we’re stranded. Honestly, he’s just pissed about everything.

    Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m kind of pissed at you, too. You’re Commander fucking Shepard. You’re not supposed to die. Permanently, anyway.

    If things work out we should be able to stop by in six months or so. Clear your calendar.

    See ya,
    The Best Pilot in the Galaxy

    Summary

    Three days after the sudden collapse of the Reapers and the end of the war, there's only destruction, chaos and pain left in the galaxy. Rebuilding will take years, decades, for now all they can do is heal the wounded, and bury the dead.

    Jane Shepard though, has no intention of being counted among those dead.

    Post-destroy ending, with a twist of indoctrination theory just for fun. I started writing in 2013 and exhumed it because shipsnthenight offered to illustrate it. We have to kill time during the quarantine after all, right?

    Summary

    Shepard sent him away so she could run for the beam and save the galaxy, but Garrus Vakarian won't be left behind that easily.

    --

    I would do just about anything for her if she asked.

    Now, though, she's ordering me to sit on the sidelines for the most important mission of our lives, to wait around and hope she can handle whatever is up there on her own. I guess I've found the one thing I won't do for her.

    A good turian would follow a bad order from his commander, but I've never been a good turian. I'll be damned if I start being one now.

    "Remember, Shepard-Commander: The first thing a god masters is herself."

    A post-ME3 story exploring new mysteries, domestic life, disability, and romance for Shepard. Established Shakarian love builds to Shalibrations throuple once Tali moves in with her favorite human and turian on the Citadel. Various Normandy Ensemble appearances.

    Summary

    me·tem·psy·cho·sis
    /ˌmedəmˌsīˈkōsəs,məˌtemsəˈkōsəs/
    noun
    the supposed transmigration at death of the soul of a human being or animal into a new body of the same or a different species.

     

    Set after the events of Mass Effect 3.

    It has been four months since the Reapers were destroyed. All technology has crumbled, and much of Earth is a pile of ash and rubble. The famed Commander Shepard has not been seen since before the final assault to the Citadel. After months of radio silence, a message has finally gone through to her famous ship, The Normandy, and her crew has begun making their way back to Earth. Liara struggles to cope with the fact that her bondmate- her love, might have perished in the fight. With no contact for a month, many assume the worse. Garrus tries to step up in Shepard's place, but tensions rise as rumors of a new enemy come to fruition. EDI and the Geth are seemingly inactive, but not totally destroyed.

    When Shepard's body is found by an old friend, things aren't as they seem. There are other parties at work, and nobody is sure if they are with them or against them.

    Summary

    "I would like to be the air
    that inhabits you for a moment
    only. I would like to be that unnoticed
    & that necessary."
    - Margaret Atwood, "Variation on the Word Sleep"

    The galaxy is forever changed after Commander Jane Shepard destroyed the Reapers. But it isn't just the galaxy that was changed: its inhabitants were too, some for better, others for worse. Most people don't know what happened to the commander, not even her boyfriend, Major Kaidan Alenko. What he does know is this: no matter how far away the two of them are, the two of them will rebuild their lives together.
