    Summary

    Nihlus becomes a squadmate for the suicide mission in ME2, but everyone on board becomes invested in the history that him and Samara have.

    Squadmate focused fic - Shepard takes a back seat for most of this fic.

    Summary

    Lt. Commander Shepard, the White Death of Elysium and borderline pariah, is named commander of the Fifth Fleet's newest frigate, the SSV Normandy. Her task? The sort of thankless, redaction-heavy missions N7s train for, on call to do cleanup whenever and wherever Admiral Hackett says go. Along the way she forms an unlikely band of misfits into a highly effective army, and discovers just how thin and flimsy the galaxy's veneers of normalcy truly are. (An AU/"Reaper-free" TV-Show-format series. Cross-posted on FFdotNet)

    Summary

    POV: Inspired by James Bond and Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Garrus Vakarian is an international assassin for the Hierarchy masquerading as a C-Sec officer. Jane Shepard is a corporate spy for Cerberus with a lethal skill set. As it goes, they meet and fall in love.
    Excerpt:
    "He loved this part of the hunt.
    His eyes followed the shape of her body, lingering a little too long on her hips. They looked scrumptious and sturdy enough for his grip. It might have been Sur'Kesh magic, but the balcony on the "Mannovai" was the perfect setting for a brief, whirlwind romance with a human.
    Shepard, on the other hand, played the femme fatal role to perfection. Fluttering her eyelids seductively, looking at his fringe with a vexing wonder like she was craving to touch him with every atom of her being. She bit her lower lip gently and put on an inviting smile. A response to the turian's purring. ”

    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.
    Please note that the timeline progression I set in this story is ~ 4 months off the official timeline of the ME stories. Realized this a little late.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    The war is over and Shepard's still alive.
    Except she doesn't really understand what war everyone is talking about, or who half of these people are... The last thing she does remember is the Normandy blowing up over Alchera. Which apparently was a few years ago, and things had changed a lot during that time. She doesn't even know which bothers her more: that everyone wants her to be someone she's not, or that Garrus has been strangely distant ever since she woke up...

    TL;DR: Shepard survives but loses all her memories since her death in ME2. Shakarian angst and regular angst, all mixed up together into a nice hurt/comfort cocktail.

    Summary

    There were flames everywhere. The trees were on fire, blocking most of the ways he could get out of that place. The air was thick with smoke, forcing him to cough. The throat felt dry and it burned with pain. Sweat dripped from his brow due to the prevailing heat. Ashes soared pitifully. Somehow he managed to get out into a larger clearing. There were charred bodies everywhere. Everything was dead.

    "Everything's all right. I’m here with you."

    Summary

    “Commander.”

    She pauses at the title. Fuck. She didn’t think any of her crew knew where to find her. She finishes her drink and turns in her seat. Except she’s not met with Alliance soldiers or red scales or a purple-tinted helmet. No. She’s met with the flicker of mandibles.

    “Garrus.” She slaps the spot at the bar next to her. “Have a seat, soldier.”

    There’s a moment of hesitation before he actually does sit down. “I’m sure you can’t say too much, but I was just wondering how the hunt is going.”

    Futile. She shakes her head. “Need-to-know basis.”

    ~~~~

    AKA, shep doesn't recruit garrus for the saren mission, but every time she returns to the citadel, they just so happen to bump into each other, and he's always there when she needs someone

    Summary

    Annette Shepard has had a hard life. Losing her family on Mindoir, losing her unit on Akuze, losing two years of her life, and now losing the man she once loved. After a brutal reunion on Horizon, Annette has to pick up the pieces and push forward. Luckily she has the galaxy's (second) best shot at her side helping her along the way.

    This will be a bit of a slow burn working through the transition of Garrus and Shep's relationship from best friends to lovers as they hunt down the collectors.

    Feedback and suggestions more than welcome!

    Summary

    Alejandra Shepherd is many things: talented smuggler, charming rogue, excellent shot - even a decent bodyguard and escort, if the money is right. A highly sought criminal on the Citadel, she is infamous to both the station's underworld and Citadel Security, especially when it comes to one Garrus Vakarian.

    But a hero? Trade her freedom for sacrifice and (maybe) glory? No, thanks.

    However, when her path crosses with that of the SSV Normandy, Aleja is drawn into a conflict much bigger than herself. She must learn to trust the very people who stand against everything she is, because when the fate of the galaxy is at stake, even the most selfish among us must stand up to save everything dear to her.

    Summary

    The galaxy is rebuilding following the destruction of the Reapers. When Garrus receives news that Commander Shepard is finally awake, he couldn't be happier. His joy soon turns bittersweet as he learns that she lost all memories past boarding the derelict Reaper before the Suicide Mission, including them falling in love.

    Post-ME3. Contains occasional allusions to the Indoctrination Theory, but it's not the main focus and you don't need to be familiar with it to read this. Light, a little bittersweet, and with a dash of mutual pining and a tiny bit of angst.

    Summary

    Ten years have passed since Garrus and Jane disappeared to become farmers of all things. They knew this day was coming, the day when they couldn't hide any longer. That day is here.

    Jane Shepard is taken by henchmen and taken to Javik who has plans for the universe. His first mistake was keeping her alive to see the destruction.

    ***

    Okay, I'm just getting started on this one so gotta be patient, but I'm really excited to do an older Shepard here. She's 44 by my calculations, and out of practice.

    As always, Bioware owns it all and I am but a mere fangirl fangirling.
