    Summary

    Rewrite of my work: Who Saves the Hero?

    Humanity imagined many things when they took to the stars, yet they really didn't expect an alien attack, an almost invasion, and then to discover that they were very much newcomers to the Galactic scene. The Citadel Council has been in existence for 10,000 years, the Asari Republics space faring for 18000 years prior to its founding. In a galaxy where Humanity makes up less than one half of one percent of a population of three and a half trillion beings; one mere human, no matter who she is, feels like one impossibly small light striving against the vast darkness. How can one formerly dead human Spectre, working for a terrorist human supremacist organization she does not trust, prevail against the Collectors while attempting to discern Cerberus' true intentions? Where can she turn to for allies when the Council openly doubts her sanity and the Alliance does not trust her? When everything around her has changed during the two years she was dead, including her own body and mind, can she find something solid enough to rebuild her life upon?

    Lazarus being brought back from the dead had been a miracle; to Spectre Amanda Athene Shepard that seemed to be the easy part.

    Summary

    Ten years after the end of the Reaper War, the galaxy has begun to heal. For Commander Shepard, this means settling into her role once more as Council Spectre, a soldier in the Alliance Navy, and loving wife to the galaxy's most proficient information broker, Liara T'Soni. For Samara, it means resuming her duties as an asari justicar, creating order in a galaxy pummeled by chaos.

    When unknown enemies put her former crewmate Samara in danger, Shepard must once again reunite her friends...and confront the unconsummated love the two women shared on the Normandy SR-2. For the galaxy is not the same, and neither are they. The journeys before the advent of the Reapers and after their defeat have changed them...but how much?
