    Summary

    Shepard has faced countless enemies; she even defeated the collectors, along with her trusted team. When she goes on a solo mission to Aratoht to spring an Alliance operative from prison and investigate claims of intel on the impending reaper invasion, everything goes wrong. An entire system is wiped out because of her actions. She's prepared to face the consequences, but she isn't prepared for the consequences of cutting ties with Cerberus. Other unexpected consequences are coming her way, too...

    Lieutenant James Vega has to live with his actions on Fehl Prime. An entire colony died because he chose the intel over the people. He'd prefer to drink his leave away in a bar and return to duty as dulled to emotion as possible, but Anderson has other ideas. He finds himself recruited for a surprising assignment; personal security for his hero. She's been mistreated, attacked, betrayed and nearly killed. It's James' job to ensure that no further harm comes to her. He'll take his duty more seriously than anyone could expect.

    Summary

    Elle & Garrus are off to Andromeda! It's a whole new galaxy of threats and challenges, and the Shepard-Vakarian family has some battles of their own too. Even after everything they've conquered, even though they're stronger than ever, they never imagined anything quite like Andromeda.

    ** This is not a standalone ** If you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first, don't blame me when you don't understand most of this. Mind the tags for the series.

    Title Inspired by Levitating - Dua Lipa.

    Summary

    When Electra Shepard wakes from a coma following the destruction of the Reapers, she quickly realizes her happy ending is much more complicated than anyone could have imagined. No one knows how Shepard survived firing the crucible, much less how she is pregnant with Garrus Vakarian's baby. Thrust into the complex politics of rebuilding the galaxy, Electra and Garrus struggle to make their own happiness last while they search for answers.

    Meanwhile, new forces of darkness threaten the galactic peace the crew of the Normandy fought so hard to secure in light of strange discoveries.

    Summary

    As humanity and other Council races develop along the path set by the Reapers, a different civilization is born. Developing alongside but separately from other species, isolated from the wider galaxy. An Empire with its own FTL technology, independent and oblivious to the existence and power of Mass Relays. What will happen if a civilization so different from others in almost every way, joins the Galactic community?

    Summary

    Garrus and Shep are beating around the bush about their feelings and their difference in species. When Garrus suddenly turns into a human, they wonder if maybe there is chance for an "us" after all - while they continue to beat around the bush.
    I promise it's not as cracky as you think it is.
    Mature for now, but eventually explicit.

    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.
    Please note that the timeline progression I set in this story is ~ 4 months off the official timeline of the ME stories. Realized this a little late.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    Part two of my crossover thing.

    Ben Tennyson found himself in the Mass Effect universe shortly before the start of the second game. Now, with him gone, his influence is still felt across the galaxy.
    Fic should cover the timeline of Mass Effect 3.

    New chapters eventually.

    Summary

    Kaidan is dead.
    Well, not literally. Not yet anyway.
    So he’s dying. His clock is running out. The sands are just about through the hourglass.

    All that’s left to do is wait until his inevitable end.
    And if he’s going to die anyway, he may as well make himself useful.
    It’s the least he can do for Captain Anderson.
    For the Commander.

    OR

    Kaidan feels guilty about the Prothean beacon, about Shepard getting hurt. But luckily he's great at compartmentalizing.

    Summary

    Garrus' thoughts and feelings regarding Commander John Shepard were easy to understand and explain: He respected and admired the human Spectre and would follow him into hell in a heartbeat. His feelings regarding his crewmate and friend, Lieutenant Jane Shepard, however, weren't as clear cut. She'd taken up residence in his head and wouldn't leave.
