    Summary

    The mission to Akuze should've been simple, but once they arrived, Amber Shepard had the misfortune to watch Thresher Maws slaughter her comrades. Just as she was on the brink of death, she found herself under the care of Saren Arterius. If she wants to get back home, they'll have to form a bond of trust.

    If this bond of trust can help with diplomacy between the humans and the Council races, then this bond of trust can also help them stand together when strange events show up to test the fate of the galaxy.

    Summary

    Commander Veronika Shepard, Hero of the Blitz and Sole Survivor of Akuze, is candidate to be the first human Spectre. The mission that brings her spectre status ends up being larger than humanity. She has a loyal crew to help her succeed, and finds not only camaraderie, but also love. Her relationship with her fellow marine Kaidan Alenko is put through a severe test, fraternization regulations being only one problem they face. Strays slightly from canon. Rated M for later chapters.
