    Summary

    Shepard wakes up in bed with a strange man. Her hair is cut and dyed. She has scars she doesn’t remember. Her home on the Pacific with Kaidan and their daughter doesn’t exist. Instead of being hailed Human Councilor, she's being called an Admiral and traitor. The once-peaceful galaxy is at war. Kaidan, who should be her soft place to land, is now a bitter adversary, and her friends are nowhere to be found.

    Trapped in a brutal timeline, Shepard must do the impossible to return home: steal part of a secret Mass Relay. As renegade memories start to lock her in place, it's a fight against time and deadly enemies. Will it take the ultimate sacrifice to escape a fate worse than death?

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Reaper War, the Normandy and her crew find themselves stranded on an uncharted world, uncertain about the fate of the rest of the galaxy they've left behind… including Shepard. For Liara T'Soni, leaving Petra Shepard behind means being burdened with a grief she thought she'd never have to endure again, when the future is so full of unknowns and the only comfort she can find, for now, is in the memories of her bondmate.

    Summary

    Shepard was an enigma, the great unknown beyond her Alliance poster girl image and myth of a war hero. As late as she came aboard, they barely had exchanged two words before being dropped off on Eden Prime together and into a complete mess. Strangers, really. And yet, she didn’t hesitate one second to push him out of the way of harm and put herself in the middle of it instead. Hopefully she wouldn’t pay for this act of selflessness with her life, hopefully he’d get the chance to apologize and thank her alike.

    Set very early game, in/after Eden Prime, following Kaidan dealing with one crisis to the other, while hoping he hasn't killed his XO and military career at the same time. Meet cute of a different kind, Shenko/Noralenko style.

    Summary

    If Shepard has to be stuck on this heat-blasted rock with anybody, he's glad it's Alenko. Even if he is (unfortunately) very attracted to him.

    Summary

    Commander Natasha Shepard is the hero of the Blitz. But that day isn't the triumph her superiors claim it was. The ghosts of her past haunt her as she tries to move past her devastating loss. She finds love and friendship among her companions as they race through the Galaxy, attempting to save it without losing themselves along the way.

    Will diverge slightly from canon as I wanted to change some of the pacing with the various relationships.

    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

    Garrus had brainstormed a lot of reasons why he and Shepard should be together, because he thought he might have to work to get her on board. They didn’t disappear from his mind just because she was already in love with him.

    Established relationship, loosely connected smutty ficlets that I update as and when I feel like. Set in the continuity of Mixing Business with Pleasure, but honestly it's just cuteness and sex, you don't really need that much context. New reader friendly!

    Set during ME2, canon divergent (they get together early). Paragon Shep, Renegade Garrus.

    Summary

    After leaving Horizon, Commander John Shepard has focused on recruiting the rest of his team. But when Miranda finds intel on what turns out to be a rogue Cerberus operation in a secluded part of the Traverse, he ends up with a new teammate he never expected - himself, from another timeline. It turns out Shep is no clone, though; she’s her own woman, and though they share backgrounds as Mindoir survivors and heroes of the Skyllian Blitz, there’s just as much setting them apart as there is that proves they’re both the Commander Shepard. Under the care of the familiar faces of her crew that nonetheless isn’t her crew, she adopts the identity of John’s long-lost sister, and tries to find her place in a galaxy she knows and yet seems like it might forever be foreign.

    She’s a force to be reckoned with, and though her own universe has been destroyed by the hubris of the rogue operation, she’s determined to save his own right alongside him - and to reunite him with the man he misses the most from his own original crew... even as she tries not to think about just how close she and this Garrus are becoming - or how close she wants to become.

    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

    What if Thane knew he was going to meet another Siha, but did not know when? Thane has a vision on the night he kills the final one responsible for Irikah's murder. Arashu comes to him and tells him he has another chance. There will be another Siha. He must not fail.

    After two years, he has waited long enough to go to the sea. On the night he believes he will go to Kalahira's shores, a beautiful warrior finds him and offers him a gift. Arashu has given him a new path. We all must walk the paths we are given.

    A slow burn where Thane and Shepard have a unique connection over a secret she has kept hidden from everyone in her life.

    This is the first of three, they will go through an interpretation the events of Mass Effect 2 & 3 (more faithful to canon, timeline wise, especially, in 2, with some bigger changes in 3 (Thane lives).

    (Any Explicit chapters - I'll note in this summary, otherwise it's generally T to slight M)
