    Summary

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

    Summary

    "Zaeed dropped his weary bones into the barstool of the port observation lounge and poured himself a large swallow of batarian red-eye. He’d never been any great fan of batarians, but he’d always been a firm believer that you shouldn’t judge a liquor by its people."

    A series of shorts focusing on FemShep/Zaeed Massani.

    Think this pairing is unshippable? So did I. But damned if Zaeed hasn't grown on me.

    WIP, but I think most every chapter will work as a stand alone.

    Summary

    After the hard missions, Shepard always has her crew to lean on, and one person in particular. A collection of Shakarian moments throughout the series. Includes all members of the Normandy Crew; drinking, fighting, and other bonding.

    Works alongside in-game canon until the end of ME2, giving the Garrus romance (and the rest of the Normandy Crew) more of a presence in Shepard's day-to-day life. Features much drinking and sass.

    I promise a fun read that stays true to the characters until the end.
