    Summary

    At first, Commander Shepard was his mentor. He wanted to emulate her, to have loyal people follow him and work toward the greater good of the galaxy. After she came back from the dead and saved him on Omega, she became his closest friend. She was his confidant, someone who he could trust implicitly even if they disagreed.

    But he never expected a romantic relationship with Shepard.

    When Shepard suggested blowing off some steam together, he couldn’t resist despite the complications it entailed. It would be fun, a chance to relax with someone whom he respected and trusted. But Garrus found himself falling hard and fast for Shepard despite all his misgivings and self-doubts. The galaxy is on the precipice of all out war and Shepard becomes his anchor, his reason for becoming the turian he always wanted to be.

    Mostly Garrus POV ME1 through ME3. Post game content planned.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard made the hard decision to leave the Alliance military. This story explores what her life looks like without the Alliance and her journey to healing. She meets Garrus Vakarian during this time and these two immediately connect with one another. From both Garrus and Shepard POVs.

    This series is in a world where Reapers don’t exist. I wanted to focus on making Shepard more human with insecurities and doubts. I didn’t want to imagine this story in a world where she’s constantly having the galaxy on the weight of her shoulders. The trilogy made her focus on completing the impossible, over and over again.

    Smut starts at chapter 3!

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Summary

    Garrus is, for once in his life, not overthinking when he demands that Pallin stall the Council. If he had been, of course, he might still have said the same thing, but at least then he would have been prepared for the look of baffled irritation on the executor’s face as Pallin takes him off the case.
     

    garrus had always known deep down that c-sec wasn't for him, but he'd held out hope that he could still do some good. freshly pulled from the saren case, he's watching all his hopes for justice begin to drain away when a familiar face appears...

    Summary

    Shepard sent him away so she could run for the beam and save the galaxy, but Garrus Vakarian won't be left behind that easily.

    --

    I would do just about anything for her if she asked.

    Now, though, she's ordering me to sit on the sidelines for the most important mission of our lives, to wait around and hope she can handle whatever is up there on her own. I guess I've found the one thing I won't do for her.

    A good turian would follow a bad order from his commander, but I've never been a good turian. I'll be damned if I start being one now.

    Summary

    Shepard is his commander first and foremost. With the more time he’s spent with her over the course of the last few months, though, a part of him wonders if there could be a bit of something…more between them. It’s a ridiculous notion, really—absolutely insane—and he’s sure he’s reading far too deep into it, but… He thinks he may be interested. That he may be willing to see where it could go. But he can’t imagine Shepard wanting the same. He probably is just reading too deep into it. Shepard is simply just being nice. Generous. The fact that she had been willing to help him track down and eliminate Saleon doesn’t mean anything in particular. All it means is that she cares about her crew. He isn’t the only one she’s helped, after all. Yet—Hmm.

    Summary

    She hadn’t been able to sleep again. Neither had Garrus. He’d found her in the mess sometime after the midnight shift change, staring into a cup of coffee. Something in the exhausted set of her shoulders had made him offer. Before he could change his mind, she’d accepted. Now they were sitting together cleaning guns, and a stupid part of his brain buzzed at how close they were, even if it meant nothing.

    But then she’d asked him that question.

    Summary

    Monthly Singles Mingle at Flux
    Come meet local singles at one of the hottest clubs in the wards! 
    Space is limited, so purchase your ticket in advance. 

    --

    When Joker buys Shepard a ticket to an exclusive event at Flux, she has no idea he’s meddling in her love life. She has no interest in attending a singles’ meet-up, and neither does the turian C-Sec officer she meets there. She’s never been interested in turians, so talking to this one should be harmless. Right?

    AKA, the galaxy’s two most oblivious dorks make fun of a meet-up event for singles without realizing it worked exactly as intended.

    Summary

    “You okay?” I ask. He’d liked breaking the rules, and killing people when they deserved it - I wasn’t worried about that. I hadn’t seen him get hurt, but I’d been busy killing people myself. Had he been injured?

    “Been better, but it sure is good to see a friendly face. Killing mercs is hard work. Especially on my own.” His eyes travel down the length of my body.

    “You’re not on your own anymore,” my voice lowers a little.

    I watch his eyes dilate as his voice matches mine. “And I’m glad to have you back.”

    ~~~

    Or, Shepard finally realises she likes Garrus. Awkward flirting, here we go.

    Summary

    “This is cruiser seven reporting in, we’re approaching the crucible now. Can someone patch Vakarian into the comm system so I don’t have him pulling at my crest while we do this?” Adrien Victus requests over comms, drumming his fingers across the console of his ship’s main deck.

    “Patching him through now, Primarch,” one of his soldiers quips, punching a few buttons on her console.

    “Primarch! Have you found him yet? Are you at the crucible? Is he alive?” Garrus rapidly asks over the comms causing the Primarch to take a deep breath before replying.
