    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

    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

    Everything was perfect. Saren was defeated. Sovereign fell from the sky. They'd survived it all and discovered something more... in each other. And then it all fell apart. Shepard took the rest of the team to investigate the continuing geth sighting. C-Sec obligations forced Garrus to stay behind... And when she'd needed him most, he wasn't there to watch her six. The love of his life died over Alchera and the galaxy came crashing down around him. An avenging spirit emerged that day. He called himself: Archangel.

    Summary

    Set at the end of Mass Effect 3, this story set up an AU that explores what happens to the crew of the Normandy and some of the other characters from all of the ME properties in the years after. I have used much of canon backstory and the events to build this verse, though I have added my own ideas into the blank spaces in character and story history in hopes of providing deeper backstory to each of their individual lives. Relationship, government, world building, and all future actions that the citizens of my universe take moving forward are my interpretations of how I believe they may develop based on the ending of the Reaper War in my mind.

    This story exists in its entirety on fanfiction.net under the same username. Consider that a first draft edition of both books 1 & 2. Here I am publishing again to allow for editorial changes, and some improvements to details as I prepare for the final book. I will update each chapter here as I complete the edits, but if one wants to read the story, it is available on the other site.

    Summary

    Crow is stuck, but it's not all bad news; he's been offered shelter on the Normandy, and Spider can't hurt them here. Shepard now has an unkillable paracausal warrior, and his 'not-an-AI', Glint, is a complete cinnamon roll, but it's not all good news; he's half-starved, in culture shock, and has a bad case of trust issues. He might need work, sure, but who on this ship doesn't?

    "Hey, it's the zombie!" bearded guy mimed a toast, looking Crow up and down. "You still look like shit."

    "Language!" Glint beeped.

    "It's kidding, right?" beard guy rose an eyebrow, though the hat made it hard to see.

    "'He'. And no, he's not." Crow shook his head.

    "Huh. Never thought the coming overlords would have parental settings on." he shrugged. The woman made him still, and readied another injection. "But really, you look like shit."

    "...Okay." Crow didn't how not to look like shit, so there wasn't much he could say in response to that.
