    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 four months 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 months 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

    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

    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

    Celia Shepard isn't the same when she comes back from Torfan.

    (or, getting three-quarters of her squad killed earns her an invitation to ICT, which doesn't seem right.)

    Summary

    Celia returns from Omega to a pleasant surprise - the wound she thought would kill Thane has proved to not be fatal, and though he's not fully recovered, he is well enough to join her on the Normandy. The Reapers are still out there, but maybe they'll be able to carve out a space for themselves among the chaos.

    (quick note: this is a standalone, but it features the same circumstances and the same shepard as in my 'main' ME series!)
