    Summary

    Shepard chose to destroy the Reapers.

    My take on what happened after ME3, lots of angst, Shepard is very broken, but it'll eventually have a happy end.

    Follow on piece to 'And the Sky Full of Stars', but can be read as a standalone (they got together in late ME3)

    Summary

    Following the action that should have destroyed the Reapers, Shepard finds herself dead. Or, wait... How can she be dead if she's still breathing?

    Gaining consciousness on the world that's completely unknown to her, she decides to set out to search for a way to return to her beloved Garrus. Sadly, nothing ever goes as planned for her and she's soon faced with an ancient order of Grey Wardens.

    Despite her primary unwillingness to join the fight against the darkspawn, she finds that she has to in order to get what she wants. She also finds that she has to survive using the bathroom in the wilderness...

    Although as stubborn and as commanding as she usually is, she finds a couple of people who manage to defy her, which draws her interest.

    On her quest to save the world once again and return to her own, she discovers something far more mysterious and ominous.

    What is she going to do?

    Summary

    Seconds before an electromagnetic pulse wipes out the Reapers and takes all Quantum Entanglement Communications with it, Miranda receives a message from the Shadowbroker.

    When the dust settles, Shepard is left to pick up the pieces of herself and decide, once and for all, who she wants to be without the Alliance or the Council’s influence. She should want peace and quiet, a white picket fence to park herself in with Liara. The universe certainly seems to expect it of her.

    Unfortunately for the universe, Shepard can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble. Habits like that are hard to break.

    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

    He looked down at Shepard, who was tired but happy. There was a glimmer on her cheeks, highlighted by the ambient violet of the sky above. She was warm in his arms. He must be the luckiest man in the galaxy if it meant that he could hold her like this.

    “I'll never get over how beautiful this is,” Shepard sighed.

    She was talking about the Citadel, he knew that. An emotion lodged in his throat that he wasn’t sure he could say out loud yet. The emotion that always fluttered and festered when it came to her. How she was the one person he always had on his mind, since they were both seventeen and musing about travelling through the stars outside Arcturus.

    “Me either,” Joker said softly, and it was no lie.

    But he wasn't looking at the Citadel.

    Summary

    Note as of 25th June 2022: meant to add this note earlier, but I now have a full time summer job so may have to take a short break as I don't have much time for writing, but I promise I'll get another chapter up as soon as I can- watch this spot or my Twitter for updates

    A short fic for my canon Shepard, Cassian, post-Reaper War. Also known as 'the wedding fic'.

    Cassian Shepard has survived the Reaper War- barely. Rescued from the rubble, Kaidan is by his side as he recovers in hospital, his injuries severe. Upon discharge, Cassian, tired of fighting, retires from active duty, proposes to his boyfriend and goes about planning the future of peace he's always wanted.

    I can’t promise regular updates thanks to poor mental health and busy real life, but you can bookmark this work to receive email updates, and I will be posting about it on my Twitter @mysticalenbyart.

    Title for this fic was taken from the song 'All Eyes On You' by St. Lucia https://open.spotify.com/track/0ekoNFB4Xnj2HQAYQ8PTBY?si=b316d89764194c6f
