    Summary

    Dark, sadistic, and probably even evil. John Shepard never wanted to be these things, but a life of pain and loss has twisted him into a man far past renegade. Follow the story of a broken soldier as he is forced to face the things he has done. He won't find peace or attornment, but maybe he can find meaning in trying to save life, as opposed to taking it.

    Summary

    Post-destroy ending, Garrus and Shepard are heading toward a happily ever after. Or maybe a kind of grumpily and shoutily ever after. Which for them is pretty happy.

    Summary

    An eye for an eye? Fuck that. She'll give Garrus Sidonis' head on a platter, if he wants it. A life for half Garrus' face, for the shadows in his eyes, for the way his voice cracks when he talks about Omega. That sounds like a fair deal to Shepard.

    (Before and after Sidonis' death, the Butcher considers the Archangel.)

    Summary

    “We have to keep moving,” Garrus says. “Don’t let that thing get a bead on—” The end of his sentence is drowned out by a roar as the maw emerges from the soil, spraying dirt and pebbles over them. Spirits. Why is it so big?

    Shepard shoulders the launcher. “I’m gonna feed it a fucking grenade!”

    At this, Grunt looks positively giddy. Garrus’ working mandible twitches in consternation. A sniper is completely useless in an arena fight, but there’s nowhere in the galaxy he’d rather be than fighting by Shepard’s side. He says, “I’ll cover you both. Move!”

    -

    Five things Shepard gives Garrus, and one thing Garrus gives Shepard. (Naturally, most of them are guns.)

    Summary

    "Things have changed between Shepard and Garrus. It started when she helped him hunt down and kill Sidonis. Afterwards it felt like all barrieres between them were gone. All the formality the chain of command demanded of them and all the awkwardness from being separated for two years gone, just like that. Instead of Commander and subordinate, they are close friends. And soon more than that."

    Summary

    Commander Shepard had known from an early age he was at least a little different to the kids he grew up with as he grew up in space, moving from station to station, his parents happily serving the Alliance. Following in their footsteps, he joined the service and continued to feel different. He enjoyed the company of women for a time, but there was something deep inside him that needed satisfying, an urge it took time for him to comprehend. Once he finally understood, and unleashed the animal inside, the galaxy had better watch itself.

    He was about to satisfy his curiosity.

    Summary

    Cute Samantha Traynor meets the Renegades Jane and Jennifer Shepard to learn how to fire a gun and what's necessary to stand a galactic war. Dealing with the freaks include smut and strong language. The poor Specialist is becoming a little "junior" marine and gets to know the Shepards better than she ever imagined. The story does not follow the events in ME 3. Partially AU with clones and new discoveries.

    Summary

    Shepard has gone through a lot. From a kid left alone in a dark world after the death of his parents and friends on Mindoir, to his victory against the enemy on Torfan, and to his ultimate fight against the Reapers, he had battled against truly terrible odds.

    Shepard didn't like himself. Not really. Dealing with the ghosts of his past was hard enough without having to fight the present as well. Garrus, his truest friend, would help the soldier, but it wouldn't be until he met a certain Quarian named Tali that things would really start to change.

    Maybe she was the one that could heal his scars.

    At least he hoped.

     

    (Covers Pre-Mass Effect 1, all the way to Post-Mass Effect 3. I have changed a lot of things and though I will skip over parts you can expect this to be both a different adventure and both the same.)
