    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

    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, a character study of Thane, a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus concerning his metamorphosis into Archangel, and a close read of Liara's transformation into the Shadowbroker. Includes an emphasis on original expanded lore, religion, language, and culture within the Mass Effect Universe.

    Summary

    Three years, countless battles, and one fiery ending to the Reaper War.

    Jagher Shepard and Kaidan Alenko knew when they said goodbye before the beam that it might be the last time they saw one another; they'd known since the beginning there was a good chance one or both of them might die in the fight against the Reapers. Jagher would have given anything to make it safely down from the Crucible, but she would never choose saving her life over saving the galaxy. Kaidan wouldn't have expected anything else, but he would have been there with her if he could have.

    But as the galaxy begins to rebuild, and Kaidan and the crew of the Normandy finally make their way back to Earth, the major is met with some unexpected news.

    Shepard is alive.

    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

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

    this might go without saying, but the state of Shepard's and Vega's relationship (not to mention the politics of the Normandy, etc) won't make a heck of a lot of 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

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Summary

    “Nobody knows why we got these,” Kezk shrugs when Aubine asks about the words painted over her armored hump, “Some people say they’re reminders of people that affected the course of our lives. Some people say they’re soulmates or some other bullshit like that.”
    “What do you say?”
    Kezk laughs and slaps her tiny shoulder. “I say that if you ever want to charge like a krogan, you’ve got to get a handle on those biotics first.”

    Aubine Shepard has more words on her than anyone probably should. She has dozens of 'thank yous,' several sets of words from those she's fought and come out the only one standing, and a set of sapphire on her arm she uncovers when she needs to. She's a war hero, one of the most famous Alliance operatives at this point, so she supposes it's a little expected.
    The Reaper is not.
    (Or: a soulmate mark subversion that follows Shepard through the trilogy, looking at the consequences of the trope. Like words from a Reaper.)

    Summary

    For years, Cerberus has controlled small western towns on the outskirts of civilization with money and fear mongering. Including Vancouver. When a U.S. Marshal comes to town with news of Cerberus's growing influence, he and town Sheriff
    David Anderson decide that action must be taken.

    Frustrated by the injustice he witnesses in his hometown, freshly sworn in Deputy Sheriff Kaidan Alenko is eager to help. But when Anderson tasks him with finding and recruiting The Shepherd, a notoriously cruel and mysterious outlaw, Kaidan finds his moral boundaries pushed to their limits.

    Summary

    "I waited two years for you, Shepard. There was never a doubt in my heart that you wouldn't figure out some way to come back. It felt like a thousand lifetimes, and I would happily do it again, as long as I knew you were coming back to me."

    A canon story with slight divergences to accommodate my vision for this story.
    Follows through Mass Effect 2 and 3 with all DLC.

    Summary

    The year is 2183, in the wake of Shepard becoming Spectre
    As Commander Shepard and the System's Alliance proves that turian Spectre Saren Arterius has gone rogue, the time has come for the Admiral of the Fifth Fleet to point out some critical aspects that Ambassador Udina forgot to take into account...

    A story based on an idea about Ambassador Udina's bold statement that "Shepard needs a ship" - ie the Normandy - in ME1 and what the Fifth fleet might have said about that IF they had been more involved in the decisionmaking.

    Summary

    Whatever Shepard had thought this little meeting was going to turn out, it absolutely wasn’t a Merfolk, or the fact that he would be transporting one. Now if only he could keep everyone away from the half human creature that was stuck within his cabins fish tank, it would make his life a whole lot easier, especially as the entire galaxy seemed intent on claiming the Mer for themselves.

    All he has to do is keep the Mer known as Kaidan safe during transportation. Simple, right? It was just unfortunate that nothing was ever simple when it came to John Shepard.

    Summary

    Turians have a simple concept: you can do whatever you want as long as it doesn't interfere with your duties. Simple enough. But does that include musicals? Because when one Turian auditions for humanity’s greatest entertainment called Broadway, he might have bitten off more than he could chew with balancing duty, and love.

    Summary

    ** May 15, 2021, update. The writing process is coming a little slower than before, as I have taken the last year away for mental health reasons. But expect updates to the story on a bi-weekly basis until things begin to smooth out.

    Altea Shepard has saved the galaxy twice now but that doesn't help when she's blown up an entire system, including the Batarian homeworld. Forced to turn herself over to the Alliance, she ends up confined to a jail cell, stripped of her rank and her ship with only James Vega to keep her company.

    James didn't know what he was signing up for by becoming Altea Shepard's jailor. He had respected her, looked up to her for so long. But she isn't quite what he thought she was. The image the Alliance presented of her was always stoic, respectful and the girl he met the first day, anything but.

    This story will follow Shepard's confinement, then move to in-game content.

    **Will update on Sundays.
    *** Schedule may be off for a little while due to quarantine. It's messing with my brain and I do apologize.

    Summary

    Main Story: Liara locates Isole’s estranged father, Mexsiodi Shepard, and learns that he is the creator of a virtual intelligence that threatens to assume all synthetic life. Isole Shepard, Commander of the Alliance-Heracles Group tasked with subduing Cerberus, sets out to find her father and quarantine the Intelligent Anticipatory Disruption and Assimilation Machine. With the reapers coming, Shepard cannot afford to let the Illusive Man acquire and unleash “ADAM” against EDI or Legion and the Geth.
