    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.
    Please note that the timeline progression I set in this story is ~ 4 months off the official timeline of the ME stories. Realized this a little late.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    Commander Shepard is dead. In his place, a man wakes up to a galaxy that's moved on without him. Forced to ally with the monstrous organisation Cerberus, the newley rekindled Shepard discovers he's a shadow of the hero he used to be.

    Saddled with a suicide mission to stop the extinction of mankind, the commander is trapped between stopping a new and deadly enemy, and trying to piece himself back together.

    Facing his most dangerous mission yet, Shepard quickly discovers that without something deeper than duty to his mission, he won't be coming back at all.

    A Shepard/Tali novelisation of Mass Effect 2, with slight changes to the canon. This story will follow a man scarred by death. There will be fluff and fun to be had with the commander and his close friends, but ultimately this will be a tale of overcoming loss and grief.

    Thanks in advance to all my readers. I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    Just in time for the final week of pride month, a fairly heavily AU (pre-)Reaper War fic where the asari made contact with humanity in the late 21st century, after a classified military spaceflight test goes awry. But it's really a story about self-acceptance and breaking down the walls we put up between ourselves and others to keep us safe and hidden. And also smut.

    A lot of the trans/dysphoria stuff comes from my own experiences as a transgender woman. Writing about it is kind of cathartic for me.

    The details of asari society, culture, and biology owe much to the work of a fellow fanfic author, alephthirteen (author link – https://archiveofourown.org/users/alephthirteen). I owe a huge thanks to them in particular, for putting a great deal of care into creating such a richly detailed background for this species. Daia's Asari Wiki was also a good bit of help.

    As this is an alternate timeline, the characters familiar to the reader from the Mass Effect trilogy (and maybe even Andromeda) have all been born exactly 32 years earlier than they were in the games, in order to fit the precise timeframe. Except way earlier for Liara, who is 352 years old in this and on the verge of matronhood.

    Summary

    A multiverse drifter is dropped in the Mass Effect universe, not too long before the new Harvest is set to begin. Alone, she has to find her way and hopefuly survive the storm she knows is coming. She would also prefer to keep those she cares about alive through it all and if she could safely navigate the pitfalls that the treacherous knowledge she carries sows in her path, that would be a nice bonus, too.
    In the end, it is more about the journey than the goal, but achieving the goal isn't something to scoff at either.

    Summary

    He looked down at Shepard, who was tired but happy. There was a glimmer on her cheeks, highlighted by the ambient violet of the sky above. She was warm in his arms. He must be the luckiest man in the galaxy if it meant that he could hold her like this.

    “I'll never get over how beautiful this is,” Shepard sighed.

    She was talking about the Citadel, he knew that. An emotion lodged in his throat that he wasn’t sure he could say out loud yet. The emotion that always fluttered and festered when it came to her. How she was the one person he always had on his mind, since they were both seventeen and musing about travelling through the stars outside Arcturus.

    “Me either,” Joker said softly, and it was no lie.

    But he wasn't looking at the Citadel.
