    Summary

    Everything was perfect. Saren was defeated. Sovereign fell from the sky. They'd survived it all and discovered something more... in each other. And then it all fell apart. Shepard took the rest of the team to investigate the continuing geth sighting. C-Sec obligations forced Garrus to stay behind... And when she'd needed him most, he wasn't there to watch her six. The love of his life died over Alchera and the galaxy came crashing down around him. An avenging spirit emerged that day. He called himself: Archangel.

    Summary

    Loss is not a fixed moment in time. It is its own creature; gnawing, ravenous, unceasing in its devouring. Facing that sorrow, that loss, can make you one of two things. It can make you bitter, or it can make you kind. It...it did not make me kind.
    Sequel to "This Side of Yesterday" - A retelling of ME2 through the eyes of Liara T'Soni only, as wrapped in a story set centuries after the Reaper War's beginning. First and third person POVs.

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the mostly-Paragon, biotic, misfit heroine of The Null Room and The Passage finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    it might go without saying, but the state of Shepard's and Vega's relationship (not to mention the state of the Normandy, etc) won't make complete sense if you haven't read The Null Room. there's also a decent amount of Shepard/Alenko angst, lingering in the background like swamp gas about to erupt at any moment, that won't potentially make a great deal of sense either.

    chapter count subject to change. void where prohibited. please avoid operating large machinery when reading this fic.

    Summary

    Thanks to the peace achieved between Tali and Legion on the Normandy, the quarians and geth are ready to talk for the first time in three hundred years. Neither side trusts the other, but if there's anyone they trust less it's the Council. To ensure impartiality and prevent outside interference, the human System Alliance agrees to mediate in secret.

    After defeating the Collectors at the center of the galaxy, the crew of the Normandy prepares to stand down for repairs while Commander Shepard goes to the Citadel with proof of the impending Reaper invasion. But word of the peace negotiations is leaked and the entire geth collective goes silent. Humanity's fragile relationship with the Council is shattered. And now Commander Shepard must find a way to unite them all before the reapers return to wipe out civilization as they all know it.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian never believed in bonding, despite the fact that he’s seen friends and family swear by the bond. All of them Turians bonding with other Turians. Simple. Easy. Biological.. But Garrus hasn’t ever felt that spark - not until a certain human female appears on the Citadel one day to marry a Turian Spectre.

    Garrus Vakarian is not that man.

    But he feels magnetised towards her instantly - in ways he can’t begin to explain - and he doesn't know what the hell to do about it.

    How can Garrus convince Commander Shepherd that they’re bond mates if he isn’t even sure what that means?

    How do you tell someone that they were always meant to be yours?

    A new inter-galactic war looms on the horizon if Shepard refuses Nihlus’s hand. What will she choose: duty or love?

    FemShep x Garrus Vakarian AU. HEA guaranteed. Non-Reaper AU.

    Summary

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix of the canon with OC and AU spanning ME1-3.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Once a druglord's slave, Jane met a strange drell one evening that changed her life. After enlisting in the Alliance and burying her origins, Jane gained a reputation as a closed-off paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, now struggling with visions caused by the beacon on Eden Prime. Her affinity for aliens, and one renegade turian in particular, becomes a problem among human-centric politicians as humanity gains a foothold in the galaxy. As time and the fate of all organic life hangs in the balance, her entanglement with the drell who changed her life further complicates matters.

    The story explores multiple motifs, including a deeper look at drell beliefs (including conlang), a character study of Thane, a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus/Archangel, a study of turian culture and history, and a close read of Liara's transformation into the Shadowbroker. Includes expanded lore, religion, and language within the Mass Effect Universe.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard made the hard decision to leave the Alliance military. This story explores what her life looks like without the Alliance and her journey to healing. She meets Garrus Vakarian during this time and these two immediately connect with one another. From both Garrus and Shepard POVs.

    This series is in a world where Reapers don’t exist. I wanted to focus on making Shepard more human with insecurities and doubts. I didn’t want to imagine this story in a world where she’s constantly having the galaxy on the weight of her shoulders. The trilogy made her focus on completing the impossible, over and over again.

    Smut starts at chapter 3!

    Summary

    There's no Shepard without Vakarian. This fic holds a lot of internal thoughts of femShep and Garrus from a recent playthrough of ME Legendary, following the basics of the main story quest with some added character development behind the scenes. There's physical and emotional trauma and bonding, and some creative liberties have been taken with the canon to expand both Shepard and Garrus not only as characters, but also as people.

    Paragon Shepard, infiltrator/spacer/sole survivor background.

    Summary

    How did Admiral Steven Hackett end up with the bodyguards we see late in ME3?

    Here's one suggestion.

    It's also sort of a tribute to a character who's greatness is easily overlooked as we focus on our Shepards and teammates.

    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

    Kaidan and Shepard grow closer when Shepard finally shares her past, and opens up about her trauma. I intend to follow the trilogy plot line, with liberties, through a series of short stories to flesh out Karina Shepard and Kaidan’s relationship. Wanted to explore a more sensitive side of Shepard.

    Karina Shepard:
    * Infiltrator
    * Paragon to a fault
    * Colonist Background
    * Sole Survivor
