    Summary

    ‘What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined to strengthen each other, to be at one with each other, in silent unspeakable memories.’ ~George Eliot~

    Having a relationship in the Alliance is difficult. There are fraternization regs to uphold. However, the regs are a little more lenient when it pertains to married couples. Normally, they don’t serve on the same ship due to the possibility of the worst case scenario happening, as it does upon occasion, but in special cases it is possible to allow such instances, if there is a need. Especially when one such couple consists of a famous ‘war hero’ badass marine and a smartass pilot who is known to be the best in the Alliance fleet.

    This is their story. It will encompass all three Mass Effect games and beyond and will describe how their relationship survives through; the hunt for a rogue spectre, reanimation by a terrorist organization, and eventual invasion of the Reapers. It will test everything that their relationship is built upon; romance, love, lust, laughter, terror, grief, family, and hope. There are a few other words that come to mind about these two; stubborn, smartass, determined, loyal, dedicated…soulmates.

    Summary

    Summary

    There was Saren and there was Sovereign. There were and are the Collectors and Cerberus. The final confrontation with the Reapers has come at last, the massive force of an apocalypse sweeping across the universe. And through it all there were and still are John Shepard and Kaidan Alenko.

    A song fic run absolutely wild. Give "Send It Up" by Vertical Horizon a listen and marvel at how I yanked this fic out of that relatively cheerful song.

    Summary

    Some people think that just being an omega, makes a person weak.

    Here, in the Alliance, it's different. We value our omegas. One of our omegas is worth more than a hundred of you alpha pups.

    Here, it is you who must be worthy to fight alongside them.

    Summary

    Kaidan thought the Normandy would be a dream assignment - David Anderson and Jane Shepard are Alliance legends - but everything went to hell so quickly his head's spinning. Rogue spectres, undead husks, and one of humanity's most promising colonies wiped off the map, all in their first mission.

    But it's not all bad. On the Citadel, he meets Commander Shepard's twin brother, John, and they have two incredible dates before John gets assigned to the Normandy and fraternisation regs come between them.

    The white-hot chemistry between them doesn't go away just because they're serving together, though. Between sharing a room and the endless parade of life-or-death assignments, it's getting harder and harder to resist.

    Summary

    Keep your head down, never show your emotion on your face, don't cause trouble. These are the tenants Song lives by as a slave to the muu, a mysterious new race in the Traverse. These strategies have kept her alive, even happy, as she works for a wealthy muu family... until Song finds herself on the wrong end of an auction block and she is sold into a world she could never possibly have prepared for. A space station broadcasting into space. Broadcasting a dark and deadly game filled with unwilling fighters like Song. Her only chance to survive is to forget who she was and become someone much stronger than she ever imagined.

    Unwilling Song is forced to ally with a troublesome human pilot and an unusual salarian in their struggle to survive impossible odds. They say winners are rewarded, but never freed. All for the entertainment of their captors in 'The Game'.

    Summary

    "2170 the colony Mindoir was raided and Destroyed by slavers. There was only one survivor - A Male adolescence was found by the Alliance and is now being taken care on Earth - Further updates to Follow." ~Alliance News Network

    But the news was wrong. More survived that day, but they were taken. Including a young female adolescent who would become of the most sought after Merc. That is until she and her adoptive father meet Shepard, the new human Spector.

    Now she is on the SSV Normandy with her brother and his crew. Can a merc work with this mainly military crew? Can she help her brother catch Saren? Can she figure out why she is dreaming of a naked Turian?

    This series will follow M1 through M3 with Pre and Post story.

    Part one is mainly character building and relationship development (sorry part 2 will be more "fun")

    Summary

    When Liara asked the rest of the crew, they said the Commander smiling was a rare thing. It either meant something horrible was about to happen, or ...something worse than horrible was about to happen. It surprised Liara at first, she saw the Commander smile countless times. From when she gave her that reassuring smile when they first met, to earlier today when Liara gave her a cup of coffee.

    Maybe she had just been lucky.

    But she liked to think it was something more.

    Summary

    Eric Grimes, a high school graduate, had somehow transported to the Mass Effect universe while on vacation. The events of the franchise have yet to occur, and he would be helpless to alter them as the next person. Seeing no other choice, he would have to find a way to survive through Saren’s incursion, the Collector abductions, and the Reaper War—or die while doing something useful.

    Summary

    Hiro Shepard was a lot of different things to different people.

    He was the boy abandoned by his father, the teenager who'd taken on the batarians alone, the man who had no qualms about leading his men to death. He was the Commander of the Normandy, the Butcher of Torfan, the first human Spectre.

    But to Kaidan, he was something different again. He was the commander who protected his crew, who valued those serving under him, who offered respect to everyone. He was the leader who was teaching him to be a better soldier, who led by example in everything he did, who made himself bleed helping people who didn't deserve it. And he was the man who was slowly taking over Kaidan's mind, invading his dreams, and laying claim to his heart.

    Artwork in chapter 8 is by the wonderful mrgamblinman on Tumblr.

    Summary

    Though from humble, and traumatic, origins, Layla Shepard rose through the ranks of the Alliance to Commander and was chosen as the first human Spectre. She fought Seren and the geth, she fought the Collectors, she fought the Reapers, but she was never alone. Her greatest strength, as Captain Anderson tells her right from the beginning, is her ability to call others to her cause and make them believe in her as much as she believes in victory. Even though she lost her family long ago, she never feels lonely. The people she meets, the friends she gathers on the Normandy are her family. Even as she faces impossible odds, she never loses sight of what she's fighting for.

    (This has become a collection of drabbles for Layla Shepard's story that are not even remotely in any sort of order. I may, once they're finished, put them in order, but probably not lol. Enjoy!)

    Summary

    Williams had asked him (in jest, maybe) if turians really did eat their weak members, the half-mad survivors of a unit otherwise wiped out. If they’d done that to the humans who had been left, dead or dying, behind turian lines in the war. He’d corrected her that they were usually euthanized instead of consumed, but wasn’t sure she’d understood why.

    Summary

    Eden Prime: where it all started. But Xelvadora Shepard didn't know that; she didn't know just how far she would have to go to save the galaxy. She was going to lose friends, comrades, allies; but that's how war was. Only, no one was ready for this war. Not the Alliance, the Council, nor the crew of the Normandy.

    But if anyone can save the galaxy, it's Shepard and her team.

    Summary

    "How long did they study the primitive humans, observing them, analyzing the results at their base on Mars? And what, if anything, did they learn from us?"

    In which Shepard touches yet another Prothean artifact and sees yet another crazy vision. At least this time it's not Reapers.
