    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:
    In the middle of a war, time is short. When you're on the front lines, fighting side-by-side with your best friend -time is shorter still. At some point, you have to take a leap of faith.

    Excerpt:
    “If- if that wasn’t what you….” Garrus winced at his own words. It wasn’t coming out right. He needed more time to figure out what to say. He took a step back, toward the safety of the elevator. “We can just forget it happened. I should let you go.”

    Summary

    This is a Saren/Femshep romance/action fanfic which spans over Mass Effect 1/(2)/3.

    "There was a hunger in his eyes, like he needed a prey, someone who was strong enough to entertain him. She took a couple of steps, ending up inches away from his face.

    He was an extraordinary sight.
    He towered over her, tall and muscular, and his plates were pale as snow. His whole chest and shoulders moved with every ragged breath, his fingers flexing, waiting for the fight, hungry for the damage. Her chest suddenly sank from anticipation. She came here to beat her sadness out and had found the perfect opponent once again. And he was waiting for her too."

    Summary

    After the Reaper War, there is a lot to be rebuilt; colonies, galactic relations, populations, etc. While Commander Vakarian gains his own ship and recruits his crew to aid in the reconstruction, mystery lurks. Scientific discovery is not the top priority of the alien races who wish to just repopulate, but a dangerous unorthodox experiment hides in the shadows.

    Summary

    I've been at work on this for 3 weeks now, and I've only just finished the final reading. After the first week, I thought I had finished it completely - somewhere around 2600 words. But while editing in the 2nd week I realised I had made an error in this piece and I had to fix that. I did the editing process again, re-worked some lines and ideas. Then this week gone by I got an idea. Of course, I ran with it and came home and typed up an additional scene which also required some re-re-editing of what I initially wrote. This in turn almost doubled the initial word count and set me up now at somewhere around 5300 words. At this point I was considering dividing the piece into two. But I realised that it needed to be read altogether as one piece and I did not run with that idea. LOLZ. Also too, I added an additional scene; the EPILOGUE, which is the last thing you'll read in this piece today. I wanted to show a small depiciton of a certain emotional situation without it overtaking the actual dialogue so I decided to have an epilogue in this dialogue. I think this scene in the epilogue needed to be shown even if it was not shown Chronologically. Nuff said on that....

    Summary

    So today we'll be having a look at a short dialogue featuring Ashley Williams. The dialogue was actually written in the spur of the moment when someone posted the following picture (http://img00.deviantart.net/948f/i/2012/228/2/b/ashley_williams_by_sorroow-d5bc4c4.png) in Ashley's thread (Legacy Forums) and asked for some dialogue to go along with it. What did I go for in this scene? Well, I went for something more. [lol @ dark knight reference? more crickets...:-(...] I tried to envision Ashley's character here as a more dark, sinister, pre-meditated kind of person, who is still fighting the good fight, but through some uncanny, smart talk and vicious interaction. I actually enjoyed how Ashley is portrayed and I don't think the "bad-ass behaviour" is overly done. It's just right. I didn't go all chuck norris on her. This also didn't have a title at the time so I decided to name it Pray. Play on words there. I hope you enjoy this short. Please do view the picture in the link before reading!

    Summary

    Cute Samantha Traynor meets the Renegades Jane and Jennifer Shepard to learn how to fire a gun and what's necessary to stand a galactic war. Dealing with the freaks include smut and strong language. The poor Specialist is becoming a little "junior" marine and gets to know the Shepards better than she ever imagined. The story does not follow the events in ME 3. Partially AU with clones and new discoveries.

    Summary

    The initial idea was born out of the scene from the ME3 game with the standoff between Ashley and Shepard when Shepard tries to confront Udina about certain Cerberus connections. This is of course how it started off, but it delved into much deeper topics. Throughout the game I felt that emotions were sorely lacking at some points so, it may seem like one character is particularly sappy here, (out of character? you decide) while staying in character with each characters speech patterns, vocabulary and so on. but the idea behind this was to try to create some sort of gravity of the situation and how it can drive human emotions to the edge and then over. I felt the game's dialogues lacked feeling in some cases so in this dialogue I tried to use romance as a springboard to bring out emotions like despair, guilt, resentment and judgments of self-worth and to show how these could have been affect by the Reaper war. I also wanted to recall several moments from the past games that would be familiar to all instead of making up something that never really happened so as to have a sense of authenticity. Also the stage directions are to help paint the scene in the reader's mind.

    Summary

    After fighting to the last man, Commander Cal Shepard is faced with the Crucible’s choice. Never in her life had she pictured it would end this way, but when it came to the wire, she accepted the consequences of her decision. She accepted the end.

    Except it wasn’t. Cal Shepard survived her choice, was saved from it. Her saviors tell her that the fight against Reapers reaches beyond any stretch of imagination she knows, across galaxies and universes – infinite and catastrophic. And they need her to put a stop to it, once and for all.
