    Summary

    “I can’t ask you to throw your life away.”

    Garrus smirked, in his own way. “Aw, but I’m really good at that.”

    ---

    After the destruction of the Alpha Relay, Garrus convinces Shepard to run rather than surrender.

    What remains of the crew of the Normandy re-invent themselves as mercenaries on Omega, waging a guerilla war against Cerberus, waiting for the world to end.

    Life goes on, but not as Shepard’s ever known it.

    Episodic/slice of life, some humor, quite a bit of angst, intermittent plot. Medium-to-slow burn, smut eventually.

    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.

Kaidan Alenko, his longtime friend and now devoted partner, has the impossible task of putting Shepard back together as the rest of the galaxy asks what he'll do next.

    Summary

    Shepard hated the static, she hated the way her thoughts muddled when she pondered her identity. But as much as she hated it, she couldn’t trust the idea that she was herself at all. That person died that day when the collectors destroyed the SR1 for all she knew. She could lie to herself over and over again, reminding herself that she was the same person she'd always been.. but she would never know the truth.

    The doubt crawled through her subconscious like corroded veins, it told her that she was a ghost of a woman who meant something to the galaxy, it whispered that she was a cheap copy of the person the world needed her to be.. Wouldn’t it be better to leave the fate of everything to someone else? Someone more like the person that he loved? She almost wished Kaidan still doubted her, things would be so much easier if he did. She took his heart with greedy grabbing hands when she knew she had no right to claim it. She took it without caring that she could not be the person he thought he loved.

    Shepard felt like she had to live up to this impossible image of the person he cared for. She owed him that. She wanted to be that person so badly that it hurt.

    Summary

    Two ghosts intertwined, then pulled apart by fate. But what happens when pure happenstance puts them face-to-face again?

    Emilia Shepard died saving the Galaxy from the Reapers. Thane Krios was murdered by Kai Leng. Didn't they?

    Except, she woke up two years later from a coma, in a hospital on Earth. Wishing to drown herself in the nearest god damned ocean, because then she could go back home. Wishing she died when she was supposed to for a damned change.

    Except he had tricked her and faked his death. Because her focus would be on him, and not where it needed to be. Because he loved her too much to risk her faltering in her mission.

    ----------

    Follows All Whom Walk This Dark Path, technically. Sort of.

    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.
