    Summary

    “Where do you like best to feed your flocks?” said a man to an old cow-herd.
    “Here, sir, where the grass is neither too rich nor too poor, or else it is no use.”
    “Why not?” asked the man.
    “Do you hear that melancholy cry from the meadow there?” answered the shepherd, “that is the bittern; he was once a shepherd, and so was the hoopoe also. I will tell you the story. . . .”—The Bittern and the Hoopoe, The Brothers Grimm

    OR: “A meet-cute meets soap opera meets half-assed police procedural/buddy-cop movie,” in which Det. Garrus Vakarian’s upbeat, idiot partner falls head-over-heels in stupid-lust with a volatile, outspoken, annoyingly hot Yoga instructor. Garrus, meanwhile, plays it smart, and sticks to bonding with and obsessing over said idiot partner’s capable, clever, compellingly unpredictable—and also annoyingly hot—father.

    Because Garrus is smart.

    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...

    Summary

    Summary

    Captain Jane Shepard, former Alliance N7 who left the military after the events on Akuze, is our justice seeking C-Sec agent. Commander Garrus Vakarian is our Commander and next in line to be the Council’s next Spectre. We are flopping the story backwards folks, let's see how this plays out.

    ******2/22 UPDATE: Upon further inspection, which to my fault is no lie, basically all my previous chapters have so many mistakes. I’m going to be going through them again and fixing them. I just wish I wasn’t the one who had to do it. Lol.

    So some edits will be happening.

    Don’t be scared.

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.
