    Summary

    "No matter where I go or what I have done as I sail across these starry skies, I have yet to settle myself amongst these warriors who have nothing to lose. Maybe our paths will cross, when all I have ever loved and cherished has been stolen from my hands, and maybe then I will raise my weapon for their endless cause. But for now, I'll save every bullet for their unmarked masks to defend the priceless lives that I call my allies."

    She's either the graceful savior of countless lives or the torrent within the hurricane as she decimates those who side against her. But what had she been before she enlisted? Before she became the sole vanguard against the Reaper forces? The Hero of the Citadel?

    Aoibheann Rowan Shepard had earned recognition from her superiors because of her familial relationships, her biotic abilities, and her lethality amongst her peers. But she was known by no other name except the one that her mother had gifted her when she was born. Rising from the ashes of her predecessors, Aoibheann would be recognized and judged based off of her actions and her own words rather than the reputation the media would give her in the years to come...

    Summary

    Commander Shepard, Savior of the Galaxy, has escaped death twice. After cutting ties with Kaidan Alenko and battered by Alliance politics, Commander Shepard hopes a new adventure aboard the Normandy will help her find her place. With the Citadel Council and millions of aliens stranded on Earth, preserving unity forged by war and restoring the Sol relay has become her sole purpose. But while Shepard focuses on restoring the relay, another threat is brewing on Earth, which Kaidan Alenko has come to know only too well. Anti-alien terrorist group, Terra Firma, and its leader, the Scorpion, also see opportunity but in a different direction. Now is the chance to return to a better time before humans bowed under galactic rule and answered to aliens. The galaxy’s most influential leaders are within grasp and the Sol system is already cut-off, if they can keep it that way. For Commander Shepard and Kaidan Alenko, Terra Firma would destroy everything they sacrificed to save. Despite broken hearts and going their separate ways, they’ll need to work together and call on friends. Overcoming impossible odds has always been daunting, but needing to overcome them together, may be even harder.

    Summary

    [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. The whole of the Alliance Navy saw the Citadel erupt into flames after the blast with Commander Jessica Shepard inside, and the famed military hero was presumed to be dead. 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.

    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

    “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.

    Summary

    Shepard was his hero. Alliance poster-child, CO of the Normandy, bearer of more medals than he had fingers. She was everything he ever wanted to be. Lieutenant James Vega wore her influence proudly, certain that everything Shepard did was for the greater good.

    But now, years later, life for Shepard has changed. She's faced with the stark reality: no longer a decorated Alliance hero, she is imprisoned and disgraced, stripped of all rank and privilege and left to rot in a jail cell. To the outside galaxy she is a source of disgust and fear - and yet it's Lt. James Vega, the most disillusioned of all, who offers her a chance at retribution. But saving the galaxy twice has left her with more scars than anybody could ever realise; James is forced to help her face her past, present, and the uncertain future of a galaxy under threat of complete annihilation.

    Summary

    Do a little recon, they said. It’ll be a short trip, they said. What the Citadel Council didn’t anticipate was that once they were through the relay, the crew of the Normandy SR 2 would get entangled in a conflict as old as humanity itself. Welcome to Sanctuary, where Heaven and Hell are more than mere ideas, and the locals are...less than friendly.
