    Summary

    What if Jack on the Hunter-Gratzner was actually Subject Zero right after she escaped the Cerberus Teltin facility on Pragia? Riddick and Jack teamed up and made it off planet with the other survivors, minus one pesky merc.

    Eight years later, Riddick has returned from the Underverse and is searching for Jack. He hasn't seen her since they were separated when New Mecca fell to the Necromongers.

    Commander Shepard was dead until Cerberus brought her back to stop the Collectors. Riddick is her first recruitment stop, and she has another dossier he'll find very interesting.

    A crossover/retelling of Mass Effect 2, post modified events of Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick and Riddick, where Jack is both Jack|Kyra and Jack|Subject Zero.

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; from the way his onyx eyes followed the movement, she was confident it was only the beginning.

    *A major re-working/updating of a story I originally wrote between 2014 - 2017*

    Summary

    Commander Shepard ended the Reaper War and their threat to galactic civilization. That much is certain. In the months following the end of the war, he and the crew of the Normandy grapple with the fallout of the decisions he made to bring salvation to the galaxy even as they navigate their new realities. Kaidan Alenko, his longtime friend and now devoted partner, has the impossible task of putting Shepard back together as the rest of the galaxy asks what he'll do next.

    Summary

    Garrus is standing in the mess hall with the rest of the ground crew: Tali, Kasumi, Mordin, Legion, Zaeed, Jack, Grunt, Samara, Miranda, Jacob, and—

    Shepard is already gone; she’s already retreated to her cabin. Garrus wants nothing more than to go after her. To check up on her. Except he fears he would only be intruding. That he wouldn’t be welcome. That she wants her space. Wants to be alone. Doesn’t want to see anyone, especially him.

    “We did it,” Tali speaks up first. “We destroyed the Collectors’ base. We actually did it.”

    “That’s what happens when you have a good team and good resources,” Miranda says. “Even the most impossible tasks become possible.”

    ~~~~

    garrus and shepard seeking comfort in one another after the success of the relay mission (and, in this case, before shepard has to leave for the arrival mission)

    Summary

    **This Mostly Follows the Plotline of ME2**

    Faith Shepard has been dead for two years, and Garrus Vakarian has carved out something like a life for himself on Omega.

    It isn't legal, and it certainly isn't by the books, but he's doing his best to remember what's left of the things Faith saw in him- and herself. Everything's a struggle. He's starting to believe there isn't any hope left for justice in a place like this, but then she shows up again. She saves more than his life.

    Shepard saves...everything.

    He'll follow her, even if the people she's answering to are what he thought were their enemies- the terrorist organization Cerberus. But she's strange. Faith is wrong, but he's never going to leave her behind again. He belongs at her back, as long as it's her.

    It is her, isn't it?

    Spirits...what if it isn't?

    -- This is the second work in a series. --

    Summary

    Loss is not a fixed moment in time. It is its own creature; gnawing, ravenous, unceasing in its devouring. Facing that sorrow, that loss, can make you one of two things. It can make you bitter, or it can make you kind. It...it did not make me kind.
    Sequel to "This Side of Yesterday" - A retelling of ME2 through the eyes of Liara T'Soni only, as wrapped in a story set centuries after the Reaper War's beginning. First and third person POVs.

    Summary

    Tali'Zorah was just looking for a worthy pilgrimage gift, but is sucked into the adventure of her liftime instead. At the helm: Commander Shepard, greatest hero of the Alliance. But with a life of violence and loss behind him and the weight of the galaxy on his shoulders, Tali soon finds that perhaps John Shepard needs her just as much as she needs him...

    Violence, Language. Written mostly from Tali's and Shepard's POV, but everyone on the squad (including Joker) gets to be POV at least once. Even Kaidan.

    Summary

    So, Shepard died, apparently. That's news to her. She wakes up in a different galaxy than the one she left. Guns are shit now, she looks like she's been through a trial of a thousand papercuts and nobody will tell her where Liara is.

    She's going to fix it. She is going to do what is needed of her SO WELL that the Alliance will forget about what she has done, which is not only normal to want but possible to achieve. She's going to fix every one of these mentally ill idiots willing to join something advertised as a 'Suicide Mission', and she is going to punch the Illusive man in the dick. She's going to fix it all. With her fists if needs be.

    She is going to find Liara.

    Summary

    LT Nathan Briggs was on his way to N-school before being transferred to Alliance HQ in Vancouver, assigned to guard duty. Commander Shepard was probably one of the last people in the galaxy he wanted to meet.
    My take on ME3. Rated M for language, violence and character death.

    Summary

    In Citadel DLC fashion, the Gang™ find a pile of leaves on the Normandy. What does it mean? Why is it there? Lots of laughing so perhaps considered a crack fic. They're all idiots and so am I.

    Rated T because the f-bomb was dropped a couple of times.
