    Summary

    While she’s on (forced) medical leave, a certain turian crash lands in Shepard’s backyard. Instead of leaving him to bleed to death like any sane person would do, she takes him into her home and nurses him back to health.

    (Because, as Vega would put it, she’s a goddamn girl scout with the self-preservation instinct of a moth near a flamethrower.)

    A first contact AU where rather than immediately going to war with the turians, the first human to meet a turian instead maybe sort of falls in love with him.

    Summary

    The captain and lone survivor of that crew is Shepard, though her name is not Shepard yet. And the lone Turian, piloting the ramshackle dinghy that finds her ship, is Garrus.

    Summary

    Its been three years after humanity's brief conflict with the turians. The governments from both parties are ready to move on, but its people aren't.
    One of those is a young, disgruntled, hot-headed veteran by the name of Walter Reilly, who is forced to serve alongside the same species that killed his friends and disfigured his face. Even with the warm welcome from the once hostile race, and a female turian keen on being his best friend, Walter has trouble putting the past to rest, which is exactly what some people want.

    Will he learn to adapt and coexist with his former enemies? Or will he finally turn into the wrathful monster everyone already thinks he is?

    Summary

    "ART loved its crew. The joy and the love and perfect clarity with what it was supposed to be, what it was supposed to do. ART couldn’t understand how someone could dislike their function - how I could. Once, I had a similar clarity of understanding with my function, then I hacked my governor module and left the company for good, and I had lost it all. It was better, now, in a lot of ways. I had my humans, and ART, and our crew. But in some ways, things were worse.
    I still wasn’t sure what I was supposed to do, ever. I had made one good decision, to stay with ART, a few years ago, and I had been just making the same decision over and over again. It felt kind of like cheating."

    A 20-some year fic in which Murderbot comes to terms with what it means to have a home (or two), a found family (or several), and just what mutual administrative assistance can entail.

    Summary

    She knows she’s the wildcard in their hands. They wanted her father, because even head-strong and with his own agenda, at least her father was familiar territory. They don’t know what to make of the messy, dirty and prickly young woman that is now the human Pathfinder, their only Pathfinder. She didn’t expect them to tell her the truth, but it annoys her even more to get fake information promised to solve all of her problems.

    Short snippets, game-chronological order about Sara Ryder, human Pathfinder: daughter, sister, peacekeeper. And lover.

    Summary

    Are aliens real? Maybe not, but witch-magic certainly is. The world is turned upside down upon the revelation that practitioners of magic have been lurking in the shadow of humanity for centuries. The Wizarding World is threatened by the only unipolar hegemon at the tail end of the Cold War, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Legends and prophesies clash with science and philosophies. Magic and myth collide with technology and truth. Ancient hatreds are revived; dark magical practices find mirrors in war and genocide.

    A CIA officer and MI-6 analyst procure an unlikely combination of people into a task force to investigate the new world.

    Amidst the riots, cutthroat political games, military aggression, magical shootouts, and hostage crises, a determined philosopher seeks to accomplish his nefarious aspirations by merging quantum physics with the Dark Arts.

    This is a techno-thriller set in the Harry Potter universe that rewrites some of the canon and most, if not all, of the overarching plot.

    Summary

    It was the year 2157, and humanity had touched the stars at last. Gazing up into the dark abyss, it was hard to believe there may be life on other planets. Intelligent life, capable of building great cities and spaces. Those that knew her, knew that Amelia Karsten-Shepard was one such idealist.

    When humanity does make contact with another species, the incident is bloody and brutal, and Amelia is ripped from her familiar normal into an alien cell as a prisoner of war, faced with an enemy that looks, thinks, and feels nothing like her.

    Summary

    Publish or perish has never been more apt. Professor Aziraphale Eastwise finds himself in the privileged position to engage with a Xenoerpeton anthropoides (or merlotl). An elusive, semiaquatic evolutionary cousin shrouded in mystery. And the answers he receives aren’t what he expects of a simple creature—even one who is human-like.

    Crowley is a social pariah among his kind who is undeniably funny, curious, sensitive, and intelligent. His discovery of the depths of merlotl thought could cement his fame and renown for decades to come, but this opportunity comes at a cost—Aziraphale is trapped in a cave with slowly dwindling supplies and rapidly diminishing hope. The longer he’s trapped, the more he finds himself considering questions of a forbidden nature. Questions that can’t possibly be ethical. Or wanted. Besides, surely it isn’t productive to even consider what attraction or mating behaviors look like in merlotl. After all, if a primate and an amphibious creature fell in love, where would they live? And Aziraphale needs rescue soon.

    Or: How budget cuts lead to the discovery of a century—and Aziraphale's heart. A story about falling in love with the subject of one’s research grant.

    Summary

    Three years after the end of the Eugenics War, The One War, the world is still reeling. The Kings that had ruled Earth, that had gone to no end to keep their power in that quest have broken the very world they had ruled with iron fists. Many of the younger generations have only know the fight, the loss and the rule of those modified.
    Creating new laws, developing a community now a foreign concept to many, creating a new life is more difficult than imagined and with the world ending many despair that they had made the wrong choices, thrown off the rule of their betters for nothing. Captain James T. Kirk differs.
    The world might be dying, many still might be dying, he concedes, but hope isn't yet dead.

    Summary

    Be prepared to step into an alternate universe, into a life that you might have experienced on the USS Enterprise, interacting with its crew and taking part in some of its key moments, its history.

    As a behavioral scientist, your expertise has prepared you for a variety of scenarios but meeting the ship’s android and second officer, Lieutenant Commander Data, sends you into a tailspin. He is on a quest to know more about humanity. His existence and uniqueness rattles everything that you thought you knew. He might be viewed universally as a highly decorated officer and “artificial” in nature, but you come to realize that there might be more to him than meets the eye. In fact, in a tumultuous and uncertain universe, nothing could have prepared either of you for the path that your meeting would lead to.

    Complete, with an optional epilogue (chapter 14).

    Inspired by strangeworks' "Inquiry, Captain" and Cerephone's "Alternative Medicine."

    Potential Trigger Warning: Tackles themes associated with the line of duty/work and life events, such as loss, injuries, death, post-traumatic stress, fertility, and healing.
