    Summary

    “The Pulse” is what they call it on Rannoch, the destructive wave that was sent out through the galaxy to destroy the Reapers. It is on Rannoch where the Geth had been concentrated for three centuries. It is Rannoch that was affected the most by the Pulse.

    On Earth, Shepard recovers from his physical and mental injuries, while Tali (who is battling demons of her own) tries to balance her own duty to her people with her need to be with him. When her duties collide, she makes an explosive discovery that could change everything.

    For her.

    For her people.

    For those that have been lost.

    Summary

    Alternate Universe fan fic set ten years after the Battle of Earth based on my version of the Mass Effect trilogy ending.

    The year is 2196.

    After a costly victory against Reaper forces in the Sol system, the Citadel races struggle to rebuild. Earth bares the scars of the assault, and billions depend, more than ever, on the resources of the outer colonies. The other races fair little better. The fall of Thesia leads to a collapse of the Asari Republics. The surviving Matriachs now fight over the scraps. The salarians withdraw from galactic affairs leaving . Protecting Citadel space is now in the hands of the remnants of the turian and human fleets

    In the Terminus Systems, former Alliance marine, Theodore “Theo” Thompson-Ramos leads a team of “security experts” against batarian slaver attacks on human colonies.

    And over the horizon the millennial enemy looms, hidden in the dark recesses of the galaxy.

    The tides of war may turn, but this conflict is far from over.

    Summary

    me·tem·psy·cho·sis
    /ˌmedəmˌsīˈkōsəs,məˌtemsəˈkōsəs/
    noun
    the supposed transmigration at death of the soul of a human being or animal into a new body of the same or a different species.

     

    Set after the events of Mass Effect 3.

    It has been a month since the Reapers were destroyed. All technology has crumbled, and much of Earth is a pile of ash and rubble. The famed Commander Shepard has not been seen since before the final assault to the Citadel. After a month of radio silence, a message has finally gone through to her famous ship, The Normandy, and her crew has begun making their way back to Earth. Liara struggles to cope with the fact that her bondmate- her love, might have perished in the fight. With no contact for a month, many assume the worse. Garrus tries to step up in Shepard's place, but tensions rise as rumors of a new enemy come to fruition. EDI and the Geth are seemingly inactive, but not totally destroyed.

    When Shepard's body is found by an old friend, things aren't as they seem. There are other parties at work, and nobody is sure if they are with them or against them.

    Summary

    The Reaper War is over but some of the Cerberus forces remain. Some had been altered, part husk and part human. The husks were destroyed and the indoctrinated had almost no brain function, but what about the others? The Systems Alliance is figuring that out.

    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 called Councilor, she's on trial as an Alliance traitor.

    War-torn, brutal, and hurtling toward destruction, this is a galaxy formed by her renegade decisions. Ten years of cutting corners and betraying friends has turned everyone in this timeline against her, including the man she loves. To get home, she'll need to win back his trust to find a rare artifact.

    Powerful enemies and dangerous secrets stand in her way, and time is running out. Soon she'll be locked in place forever. She'll never see her family again. It's a fate worse than death. But escaping it, may take her death.

    Summary

    Shepard develops some semblance of a normal routine. She and Garrus start talking daily, and it feels just like old times. Something seems…off about him, though. Every time they spend physical time together, his omni-tool almost never stops pinging with new messages. He checks every single one of them, but never seems to respond to any. They also seem to only ever exasperate him.

    “Well, you’ve been popular lately,” she says one day after at least the fifth message has come through on his tool.

    He lets out a soft sigh. “It’s nothing important.”

    “Are you sure?”

    “Positive.”

    She leaves it at that, still not wanting to push. She has a feeling this could be part of why he left Palaven. It got to be too much. Right. He’ll tell her when he’s ready.

    AKA, shep and garrus never got together during the actual trilogy timeline and after the war they start pretending to date for garrus' sake but shep quickly realises that she may not be able to pretend for long

    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

    Natalie Shepard has always been a big, robust woman, often the target of subtle, or not-so-subtle, mockery from her fellow humans. The ordeal of the Reaper War has made her lose a lot of weight, and while the Alliance media lauds her for her "transformation", she does not consider it a good thing, as it drained both her physical and mental health. Luckily, Garrus is always there for her.
