    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

    ‘What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined to strengthen each other, to be at one with each other, in silent unspeakable memories.’ ~George Eliot~

    Having a relationship in the Alliance is difficult. There are fraternization regs to uphold. However, the regs are a little more lenient when it pertains to married couples. Normally, they don’t serve on the same ship due to the possibility of the worst case scenario happening, as it does upon occasion, but in special cases it is possible to allow such instances, if there is a need. Especially when one such couple consists of a famous ‘war hero’ badass marine and a smartass pilot who is known to be the best in the Alliance fleet.

    This is their story. It will encompass all three Mass Effect games and beyond and will describe how their relationship survives through; the hunt for a rogue spectre, reanimation by a terrorist organization, and eventual invasion of the Reapers. It will test everything that their relationship is built upon; romance, love, lust, laughter, terror, grief, family, and hope. There are a few other words that come to mind about these two; stubborn, smartass, determined, loyal, dedicated…soulmates.

    Summary

    Heros are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary. They are made by the path they choose, not the powers they are graced with. Someone who steps up, when everyone else steps down... and everyone has an opinion on them, especially when they're as striking as a certain Commander Shepard.

    This is a collection of drabbles/one shots that I originally started two years ago, but got side tracked with other stories. I've recently restarted playing the original Mass Effect and figured it's about time I finished this collection. There's no real ordered, except for when I meet the characters in game! And as I think I've covered every notable man you meet for the first time in ME1, this will be on hiatus until I get onto ME2 in a few weeks.

    Summary

    An arrangement negotiated between the Hierarchy and the Alliance at the end of the First Contact conflict leads to the placement of twenty human families on the turian colony world of Oma Ker. Among these families is lieutenant Hannah Shepard and her daughter Jane. Growing up surrounded by turians, Jane finds she doesn't truly belong to either world she's a part of: too turian to be fully human and too human to be fully turian. Struggling to find her place, her only comfort is her closest friend, one she's know since her arrival on Oma Ker: Garrus Vakarian. But as the years go by, she begins to see Garrus as more than just a friend. She must learn to navigate the complexities of straddling two worlds, and the new emotions developing for her best friend, while staying true to herself.

    Takes place in three acts spanning several years, following Shepard and Garrus' changing relationship.

    Summary

    OK so as I played through the Mass effect series I got this idea that hey what if I combined some of the races DNA with Human DNA and I got the hybrids (They do not look like movie monster hybrids). I do not own anything to Mass effect save for my OCS. Canon Divergence Reaper AU. What if a single woman changed the course of fate and Saren never discovered Sovereign?

    Summary

    Shepard and Sparatus make no secret over the fact, they cannot stand each other. But deep down, a yearning calls for both of them, making the air sizzle with sexual tension. They give into their most carnal desires, but when the times get hard, can they really be what the other needs, forgiving the past to make a future together? Spans ME2 onwards.

    Yay! 100 Kudos. You are the best, people!

    Summary

    Rewrite of my work: Who Saves the Hero?

    Humanity imagined many things when they took to the stars, yet they really didn't expect an alien attack, an almost invasion, and then to discover that they were very much newcomers to the Galactic scene. The Citadel Council has been in existence for 10,000 years, the Asari Republics space faring for 18000 years prior to its founding. In a galaxy where Humanity makes up less than one half of one percent of a population of three and a half trillion beings; one mere human, no matter who she is, feels like one impossibly small light striving against the vast darkness. How can one formerly dead human Spectre, working for a terrorist human supremacist organization she does not trust, prevail against the Collectors while attempting to discern Cerberus' true intentions? Where can she turn to for allies when the Council openly doubts her sanity and the Alliance does not trust her? When everything around her has changed during the two years she was dead, including her own body and mind, can she find something solid enough to rebuild her life upon?

    Lazarus being brought back from the dead had been a miracle; to Spectre Amanda Athene Shepard that seemed to be the easy part.
