    Summary

    Shepard isn't conventional, she knows that.
    It's why her best friends are the most flirtatious turian alive, the most sarcastic man she's ever met and a krogan who intimidates nearly everyone he meets. It's why she doesn't hold a grudge against the turians at all, even though her Dad died during the first contact war. It's why she followed in her parent's footsteps, joining the Alliance, despite her mother warning her against it. She trusts her gut instincts. It's why she risked an Alliance mission to save a single alien, and why she readily accepted another's offer to join her crew, after only speaking to him twice.

    Garrus isn't conventional, he knows that.
    Despite working hard during his military service, and following in his father's footsteps when he joined C-Sec, as was expected. Despite his career being successful and advancing quickly. Despite being considered quite the eligible bachelor. He's a bad turian. He chaffs against the red tape and politics of his job. He finds no satisfaction in it or the company he keeps. It's why he doesn't hesitate to offer his services to the striking alien on her mission to do what he couldn't. It's why he'd follow her into her human hell and back.

    Summary

    It was supposed to be a one-night stand. No names exchanged, just a chance for Jane Shepard to experiment with a turian who wasn't her life partner. Hell, Nihlus had even encouraged it. But after the shitstorm on Eden Prime, the handsome stranger with the bright blue eyes was thrust back into her life, this time with a name: Garrus Vakarian. Forced to team up to find proof of Saren Arterius' guilt, they wind up stuck together in a galactic journey to understand the mysterious Prothean tech uncovered on Eden Prime. Run-ins with quarian refugees, asari scholars, mercenaries with a personal vendetta against Saren, and Alliance marines ensue. And all the while, Shepard and Nihlus find themselves drawn inexplicably closer to Garrus, and he to them.

    Alternative timeline/canon divergent ME1. Follow-up/companion piece to Diplomatic Relations, though you don't necessarily need to have read one to enjoy the other.

    Summary

    AU, starts before ME1.
    Shepard and Garrus in a relationship from the start with lots of romantic sparkles and drama and sex. Garrus's POV, the hunt for Saren as a criminal investigation, new conspiracies, new enemies and cameos from our favorite TV shows. Come for the smut and stay for the story...
    Someone said my summary "hides this incredible, magnificent story within", so see for yourself.
    Follows canon and the story of Mass Effect 1 very loosely, new adventures, new problems, new characters and more love, sex and friendship.
    Updates whenever but it will get finished I promise!!!

    Summary

    Nihlus has always felt a sort of kindred-spirit with Kerica Shepard. Even before he met her in person on the Normandy, investigating Eden Prime, her records had him unreasonably curious and interested. Through it all, Nihlus quickly discovered even his previous mentor couldn't be trusted. Yet here was this tiny human...this tiny human was the only one by his hospital bed.

    Forced to retire, Kerica Shepard was left tasked with the mission to find and stop the rogue agent Nihlus once called 'friend'. Months have gone by since then. She feels lost, and when a certain C-sec officer pops into Phantom, Nihlus takes a chance. He's pleased that for the first time in a long time, she's got a little hope. What he doesn't expect is she brings him little pieces of her life along with her when she comes back each time.

    ---
    Detached from the series. Some events and occurrences to happen, either by retelling or being hinted at. First inspired by another work, then inspired by comments on my tumblr dash about how Garrus "probably would've never met Shepard if it wasn't for Reapers." Well. Here's an AU entirely for that "without Reapers" scenario.

    Rated T for swearing.
