    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?

    ***Story is finished. Posting one chapter a week.

    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

    After helping Shepard stop the Collectors, Thane continues to face his mortality as he battles Kepral’s Syndrome. But a ray of hope has touched his life. He and Shepard have agreed that they will accept the time they have left and spend it together—until the time they thought they had is snatched away from them.

    And then, the Reapers.

    Though many circumstances are beyond his control, Thane is once again left to make a choice: whether to embrace death and the end of times, or to fight for his life—and the life of his siha.

    -This story details events of ME3, with the intention of keeping Thane alive and inserting him back into the story. I recommend reading my story 'Life Support' first, as it is the first book in the series.-

    Summary

    Shepard left her family behind on Mindoir. Really, she did. Any memories resurfaced or people reminding her of them are purely coincidental. She is the model picture of mental health! A beacon of a soldier for the alliance!

    If only that whole dance and song worked on Liara.

    Summary

    There could be a lot of reasons why Shepard's memories are wrong after she wakes up from the dead. Maybe she's a glitchy AI, maybe she has brain damage, maybe reality changed. Or maybe something else.

    Whatever it is, the answer is in Virmire. And she'll get back there. Somehow.

    Summary

    When drell assassin, Thane Krios, came aboard the Normandy, he had one intention: to seek a worthy death. He believed that Shepard had offered him that. He had been spending his final months reviewing his life—his past, his failures, his deeds. He had thought he had nothing left to live for.

    He would find out that he was wrong, for he had just found someone who could give him—not death—but a reason to live.

    -This story plays through the events of ME2, detailing the Thane/Shepard romance throughout, with the intention of becoming a two-part series which rewrites the events of ME3 and Thane’s fate.-
