    Summary

    Historical fiction AU: When the maiden voyage of the 'HMS Normandy', is waylaid by a terrible storm, Commander Shepard discovers something far worse than pirates which threatens the seas and life itself. Now she must find a way to convince the world of an ancient terror and stop it before it wakes from it's house at R'lyeh.

    This is what happens when one of your friends says "Mass Effect", another says "Pirates", and you say "Cthulhu". And it's gotten very out of hand. Come for the naval aesthetic, stay for the romance cut with eldritch horror.

    Summary

    One of the defining moments of the first part of the Mass Effect Trilogy. What would have happened if, somehow, Shepard had saved both Ashley AND Kaidan on Virmire? This is how their lives might have differed throughout that story.

    Rated 'Mature' as I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING! Based on my own playthrough of the original trilogy. This work could go any direction so I have been cautious rather than not. I hope that this will continue but I don't want to promise anything.

    Summary

    Turians have a simple concept: you can do whatever you want as long as it doesn't interfere with your duties. Simple enough. But does that include musicals? Because when one Turian auditions for humanity’s greatest entertainment called Broadway, he might have bitten off more than he could chew with balancing duty, and love.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed.... personally... enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime.

    A colony slaughtered, it's citizens transformed. A Spectre dead, and suddenly the Geth? Garrus dropped his entire life on the Citadel into the fire, for a small chance at seeing justice done and being part of it.

    That's not normal. Not unless the losses and betrayals were... personal.

    Maybe they were.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167, T-16 years until Eden Prime. A story of talented people who are divergent, alien, heroes of their own stories, and victims of the times.

    Featuring: Caffeine addictions. Everyday life as a Spectre. Unconventional interrogations. Boring council meetings. Old frenemies. Ancient artifacts. Life after death. The people behind the legends. Bullets. Many, many bullets...

    Summary

    Explores the inner conflict of Matriarch Benezia - takes place after Shepard's fateful intervention on Eden Prime.

    Excerpt:

     

    To think of myself and the others as being strong enough to resist Saren's influence was naïve, befitting that of a 50 year old asari child. The unpleasant truth of my folly was made clear after a few months in service.

     

    Despite this, the warping of the turian's core values and how truly foolish he is not to see it galls me the most. The whispering becomes harsh and the siren song starts to grate, its harmonious tone slowly becoming higher-pitched, the overseer displeased with my mutinous thoughts. His whispered directives harden with conviction, and painful pin-pricks of what feels like hot oil suddenly flare inside my skull.

     

    No. I will not be cowed into mindless obedience like the others… but this boldness of mine feels like an act, for it becomes harder each time to resist his lure, harder to suppress this darkness inside me.

    Summary

    None of this was the plan. Not the last night of shore leave with the handsome stranger. Not the covert mission to Eden Prime with a shakedown crew. Not a Prothean beacon.

    And definitely not everything that came after...
     

     

    A Nihlus Kryik fix-it, because we were robbed at gunpoint (literally). Beta'd by the lovely Iron_Angel.

    Summary

    An anxiety ridden engineer, who ran into a thresher maw at the wrong place at the wrong time, is promoted to commander and pushed forward as a specter candidate against his will. He is neither saint nor sinner- he’s Travis Shepard, the IT guy with a gun. Can he change the tides of fate?

    Earther/Sole Survivor/Very Tired

    In this universe, persuasiveness is separated from the paragon/renegade system and characters’ classes effect how they interact with the world to make them more nuanced. NPCs also get more agency within combat and the story itself. Shepard’s tactics are inspired by the Muderbot Diaries by Martha Wells. This is my first fan fiction I’ve decided to post. Enjoy!
