    Summary

    My version of a Shenko happy ending. Mostly canon-compliant in that everything is basically the same with the one exception that Shepard and Kaidan get married during the events of the Citadel DLC, and then go on to live their lives after the end of the war.

    This is set mostly after the end of the trilogy, but does start near the end of Mass Effect 3.

    Summary

    “Life is like that. You live it forward, but understand it backward.”

    Because sometimes, it takes knowing the ending to better appreciate the beginning. A lengthy exploration of Jane Shepard and Kaidan Alenko’s relationship, unwinding its way back to the start.

    Rated E for explicit sexual content and mature language.

    [Spoilers for ME 1-3] In a single shot the war with the Reapers was over, but the galaxy's inhabitants still bear the scars of the war.

Through a miraculous feat of determination Shepard actually survived the blast, though now she faces a shattered galaxy in the aftershock of war. Though extinction was averted, the galaxy is far from at peace.

Tasked with mapping this new area, Shepard and crew are looking forward to an easy mission after the hell that had been the Reaper War. Too bad the easy missions don't tend to stay that way.
