    Summary

    The mission to Akuze should've been simple, but once they arrived, Amber Shepard had the misfortune to watch Thresher Maws slaughter her comrades. Just as she was on the brink of death, she found herself under the care of Saren Arterius. If she wants to get back home, they'll have to form a bond of trust.

    If this bond of trust can help with diplomacy between the humans and the Council races, then this bond of trust can also help them stand together when strange events show up to test the fate of the galaxy.

    Summary

    Summary:
    Freed from indoctrination upon Sovereign's destruction, Saren Arterius spent months in incarceration for his crimes against the galaxy. In the meantime, the Council still refuses to take the Reaper threat seriously, despite Commander Shepard's death.

    Saren is too dangerous to be kept alive, yet too valuable to destroy. They found an alternative, but forgot to account for one minor issue: They're both hard to kill.
     
    Excerpt:
    Nothing mattered. He had lost years of his life because the Council didn’t see a need for him.

    Their best agent.

    He’d… he’d dedicated his life to them and for what? To be thrown under lock and key until they saw a specific need for him. Like he was some tool to be thrown in the back of a workshop to collect dust and be forgotten? He wasn’t even sure if it was anger he felt or disappointment or just unadulterated rage. Two Spirits-damned years.

    Summary

    This is a Saren/Femshep romance/action fanfic which will span over Mass Effect 1/(2)/3. //New chapter every 5 days!//

    "There was a hunger in his eyes, like he needed a prey, someone who was strong enough to entertain him. She took a couple of steps, ending up inches away from his face.

    He was an extraordinary sight.
    He towered over her, tall and muscular, and his plates were pale as snow. His whole chest and shoulders moved with every ragged breath, his fingers flexing, waiting for the fight, hungry for the damage. Her chest suddenly sank from anticipation. She came here to beat her sadness out and had found the perfect opponent once again. And he was waiting for her too."

    Summary

    Thus did I find myself, when I finally regained my senses months later, the recipient of the care a great many professionally concerned doctors at His Majesty’s Royal Hospital at Monks Orchard.

    They call me mad, those learned men, a supreme irony, for they are the ones who natter on in ignorance, not I. Who is truly insane: the one who has seen what I have, or the one who looks upon a façade and thinks it the extent of what is real?

    The following, being the curious account of one Professor -- Shepard, lately of Miskatonic University, Arkham, Massachusetts.

    Summary

    The years apart came with revelations.
     

    Excerpt:

     

    Saren detailed it all in his research. The transition had been insidious. By the time he'd realized how far gone he was, it was already too late. He tried to save himself, to regain his turian mind with the help of first Benezia and then Garrus but it was all for nought. In the end, his mechanized masters had taken away everything that made him who he was: from memories of his brother to any sense of pride he’d had for his protégés.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything to see justice done when the opportunity presented itself. That's not normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal.

    Maybe they were. Maybe... they were *very* personal.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167. T minus 16 years until Eden Prime. A story of talented people who aren't exactly whole inside, but find some of the missing pieces in the warm regard of unexpected friends.

    Caffeine addictions. Spectre missions. Boring council meetings. C-Sec. The people behind the legends, and bullets. Many, many bullets...
