    Summary

    Nathaly Shepard wasn't prepared to die. But some fates are worse than death. When her greatest enemy claims she's their only hope to defeat an impossible threat to humanity, she has no choice but to fight. But how is she supposed to contend with a foe that rivals even Sovereign's destruction when she's lost two years of her life and everything she held dear?

    As she struggles to reconcile working for Cerberus and find her new place in the galaxy, others will try to make her a pawn. Spectres have always risked losing everything, but this time, it might be too much to ask.

    Meanwhile, back in the Alliance, Kaidan Alenko uncovers a secret with dire implications for the past and future- one which will inevitably bring him into a confrontation with the woman he's mourned for two years, and threaten to tear them apart forever.

    A re-imagined and canon-divergent Mass Effect 2, that keeps to the spirit of the original while exploring the true costs of resurrection, and how Kaidan Alenko became a spectre.

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    Emotions were a strange construct that couldn't be easily measured. While Valerie Shepard appears calm and collected to many, there are few that hear her express her thoughts aloud, and even less that have seen her broken and overcome with her emotions.

    Only one has seen her pour her heart and soul and he is Garrus Vakarian.

    (This collection takes place throughout the trilogy; there will be mentions of past relationships.)

    Summary

    it's taken me a couple of years to start this tale with work life and problems in my own life, now i am in a place where i can start it again and be happy with it.

    Its been two and a half years since a vessel of unknown origins destroyed the Normandy and killed Commander Cassandra Shepard and 20 other members of her crew. Two and a half years on, Shepard wakes up in the Lazarus Research station under mech attack.

    This work may have some of ME dialog but it is mainly an AU version, i do not own the rights to Mass Effect that belongs to Bioware, i am not making any money off this, mores the pity, i am just playing in thier sandbox, the only Character i own is my Custom Shep Casandra Shepard and maybe a couple of OC'S along the way. The characters and settings are all Bioware and EA Games.

    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.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    To most, Andrew Shepard is a ruthless hardass. He’s sarcastic, has no regard for other people, and had a stature he used to intimidate everyone around him. If you asked the crew of the Normandy they would give you a completely different answer. At one point they may have given you the same answer as anyone else,now they know better.
