    Summary

    Blessed by the gods, Shepard is tasked with hunting down those responsible for the violence done to her. The offense done to the gods when she was ripped across time, brought back from death, cannot go unanswered by the Siha.

    This draws on a bunch of things from the first, so read that first and is the second in the series (of three). This will go through the events of Arrival and the first half or so of Mass Effect 3, though there will be more substantial shifts from canon, it will still have the same main missions, etc. Thane lives. Another bit of a slow burn after Shepard gets taken into custody and brought back to Earth.

     

    Updates every few days, sometimes more frequently, with a chapter or two.
    Any explicit chapters will be noted here: 4, 20, 21

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the Earthborn, mostly-Paragon, biotic, misfit heroine of The Null Room and The Passage finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    might go without saying, but the state of Shepard's and Vega's relationship (not to mention the state of the Normandy, etc) won't make sense if you haven't read The Null Room and The Passage. there's also a decent amount of Shepard/Alenko angst, lingering in the background like swamp gas about to erupt at any moment.

    this fanfiction has an entire recorded playthrough where you can watch the game being played, running in tandem with the story, including a ton of editing to construct some scenes that don't exist in the general game (but, I argue, could.) links in every chapter.

    chapter count subject to change. void where prohibited. please avoid operating large machinery when reading this fic.

    Summary

    Now that Kaidan is back on board the Normandy, Dr. Sasha Sanders tags along for more ME3 adventures. How does he find out about Shepard and Garrus? What is going on with Shepard's mods? Is Vega really flirting with him? (spoiler: yes, he absolutely is).
    It's not paranoia if you're right.

    Summary

    After what feels like an eternity of death and anguish, a routine stop at the Citadel puts Shepard in the uncomfortable position of taking a break - and breaking it off with an old friend - while wrestling with the weight of becoming a galactic symbol for prosperity. Meanwhile, Garrus Vakarian seeks information on his family. However, his dive into their whereabouts has led him into political blackmail with the Hierarchy, who seek to reunify the restless turian masses evicted from their homeworld through the elimination of their scapegoat: Garrus's human Commander. Against their will, the two find themselves together at the brink of reigniting an old interspecies war - one that puts the entire galaxy in jeopardy, and challenges the unfamiliar feelings developing between them.

    Summary

    Mara is a legend. Someone to look upon and follow into the hell itself. An icon she never asked or wanted to be. But as so many other heroes, she walks a dangerous patch and after Kaidan’s death, brought back from the grave, she walks it alone.
    Kal’Reegar is just a simple marine, like many of his kind. Brilliant tactician and brave soul, sometimes almost stupidly fearless.
    And one day Mara jumps into Kal’s life.

    Summary

    Celia returns from Omega to a pleasant surprise - the wound she thought would kill Thane has proved to not be fatal, and though he's not fully recovered, he is well enough to join her on the Normandy. The Reapers are still out there, but maybe they'll be able to carve out a space for themselves among the chaos.

    (quick note: this is a standalone, but it features the same circumstances and the same shepard as in my 'main' ME series!)

    Summary

    Garrus & Elle continue their adventure into Mass Effect 3! This one is a lot exciting and a lot heartbreaking, but it won't be exactly what you expect. Yes, I'm saying that the ending won't be canon because screw that. There's a lot more to come.

    **Not a standalone!** You'll probably be lost if you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first.

    CW/TW: dark themes, tons of angst, graphic descriptions of violence/war, very graphic sex

    It's Bioware's sandbox!

    Summary

    After his deadly decision at Fehl Prime, Lieutenant James Vega runs off to a shady bar in Omega to numb his sorrows. But a personal request from Admiral Anderson has him swallowing his pride--hiding his pain--and running security for Commander Shepard's house arrest. When the Reapers hit Earth and they escape together, he learns every heroic thing he's heard about Jane Shepard is true, and they share more in common than the grim heart of a soldier.
