    Summary

    As the galaxy picks up the pieces five years after the Reaper War, the only place that seems unchanged by the chaos is the crime-ridden space station Omega. Aria T'Loak, de facto ruler of Omega, continues to enforce her one rule with absolute authority: Don't fuck with Aria. Meanwhile, Solana Vakarian gets involved with the enigmatic Archangel, who has returned to Omega to break Aria's one rule--hard. As her bother tries to unravel the mystery behind Archangel's identity, she must decide whether to join in Archangel's increasingly drastic measures to free the station from its criminal roots--though she holds a dark secret of her own. . .

    Summary

    Inspired by the captivating artwork of savbakk, a fantasy romance about a turian mermaid, or "merian" and Commander Jane Shepard of the Normandy. After centuries of self-imposed isolationism following a bloody war with the semi-aquatic krogan, a young merian scout comes into contact with an Alliance ship and a fascinating human woman he can't stop thinking about. Together, the pair forge a strong friendship and eventual romance, and attempt to show their respective races that there is more to be gained in unity than hostility.

    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.

    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

    Newly promoted Commander Vakarian is the head of the advanced turian ship, 'Normandy'. And, as tradition, he is expected to find a human and "break" it in. As goes, if you can tame a stubborn, spitfire, persistent alien you have proven your ability to do pretty much anything. Or at least show your ability to honor traditions, which is nearly as important. Vakarian himself is not sold on the idea but it would be a bad move on his part to just ignore an important rite.

    There is hope however. After an incident in a back alley, a fiery human with an attitude to rival his own will provide him a possible out. Or give him a migraine to last him a lifetime.

    Fic is mostly "idiot ex-soldier pisses off space bird" and Shepard being...well, Shepard.

    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

    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.
