    Summary

    An AU Mass Effect. How will two Shepard twins, set on separate paths, be changed by their differing experiences and relationships? Can they still work together to save the galaxy?

    This series features twins John and Sera. John Shepard follows the more standard in-game main story path, while Sera Shepard weaves in and out of John’s arc as she progresses through particular side missions/plot points. Eventually the story will span all three ME games and perhaps beyond. It will remain generally within the realm of being canon-compliant, but will diverge when and where the characters demand it!

    Tip: Read the prologue if you want background/setup info; skip it if you want to dive straight into the narrative.

    Summary

    "I would like to be the air
    that inhabits you for a moment
    only. I would like to be that unnoticed
    & that necessary."
    - Margaret Atwood, "Variation on the Word Sleep"

    The galaxy is forever changed after Commander Jane Shepard destroyed the Reapers. But it isn't just the galaxy that was changed: its inhabitants were too, some for better, others for worse. Most people don't know what happened to the commander, not even her boyfriend, Major Kaidan Alenko. What he does know is this: no matter how far away the two of them are, the two of them will rebuild their lives together.

    Summary

    Zahra Shepard knew this day would come, but no one is ever ready for the end of everything. Why did she think she'd be any different? But before the end, she might just find something worth dying for. Maybe even worth living for.

    Fairly snappy, short snippets of my Shepard's time in ME3, and its various ups and downs. Also used the Back-Off mod because yes, and rejiggered some of the Kaidan romance to better fit my Shepard, and the fact that Kaidan has a dry sense of humor. Which the writers kind of forgot about in ME3. And I shall end it there before this summary turns into an essay. XD

    This fic is posted in its entirety because real life will prevent a posting schedule, so enjoy the ride! Be well and take care of each other out there!

    Summary

    Before the Reapers, before the collector base and before Saren, there was Akuze.

    They hailed Celeste Shepard a hero for it. A story people spoke of in awe, which she wished they never would.

    No, it didn't make her a hero. It made her nothing. It just showed she was a survivor.

    Summary

Along the way, she might just form some unbreakable bonds, develop a growing frustration with politicians, and hack every database she can get her omni-tool into.

    Summary

    A mostly loyal retelling of the Mass Effect Trilogy. Enough difference to add it's own flavour to the fic.

    Summary

    Carrie Shepard became the first human Spectre and saved the Citadel, leaving herself a legacy. And then she was lost in an attack on the Normandy.

    And as far as she is concerned, a resurrection putting her in the pocket of the enemy is not at all an acceptable alternative to death.

    Summary

    Shepard stared at him a little longer, Kaidan stared back.

    Something rippled between them, perhaps an understanding or maybe it was just biotic waves that were being reflected back and forth. But they both felt it, that ripple. It hit once, twice, three times, and suddenly the ripple ended and the stillness was back.

    Shepard's eyes brightened, his face seemed smooth all of a sudden. Stuble differences that were gone in an instant, and Kaidan was wondering if he had been imagining it or not.

    "Carry on." Shepard said, and it felt like the coldness was gone.

    CHAPTER 9 IS OUT LADS!
