    Summary

    It was some part of his spirit of rebellion, he supposed, when three years later Monte Cristo awakened with Kaito Kid’s top hat and his head crowned with golden falcon’s wings. What could better be called justice, after all, than doing right by yourself before anyone else?

    Summary

    “I’m not going to freak out.”

    “Of course you’re going to freak out.” Akira flashed the guard’s ID and key card with a TV-ready smile as he stood up—that expression that made Goro want to strangle him, or kiss him, or both, in any order. “I’m going to.”

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Reaper War, a synthesized galaxy must learn to pick up the pieces and move on without Commander Shepard. Newly-minted Spectre Garrus Vakarian is finally ready to start healing as he begins to work for the Council. But despite being saddled with a Reaper and a dangerous asari as partners on his first mission, his greatest challenge comes when they discover Shepard herself, alive after being presumed dead for three years. But is it really her? And can Garrus trust her if she isn't the Shepard he knew and loved?

    While navigating the difficulties of a changed galaxy, they must retrace her steps across many worlds to remember who she is--and chart a new path together.

    Summary

    Caimarilis Shepard-Vakarian is the adopted turian daughter of Commander Shepard and Garrus Vakarian, biologically Garrus's cousin. Her biotics manifested at a young age in a dire situation, leading her to join the biotic faction of turian military training at age 15.

    Summary

    Shepard rejects the Catalyst's curated options. When the apparent ghost of Legion comes to her aid, she entrusts both the galaxy's fate--and her own--to him. She is rewarded with a life where she kept her promise to Garrus. Yet questions persist regarding the Crucible; finding the answers will require fighting Terra Prima fascists, reconnecting the Geth Consensus, and (maybe) getting married.

    "Remember, Shepard-Commander: The first thing a god masters is herself."

    A post-ME3 story exploring new mysteries, disability, and romance for Shepard.

    Citadel Arc [Ch 1-30]: Various Normandy Ensemble appearances. Despite the scramble to reactivate the mass relays and growing unrest in the Sol system, a few bosh'tets manage to date & fall in love as Shakarian pair builds to Shalibrations throuple.

    Tour to Rannoch [Ch 31-?]: A loosely episodic journey to Rannoch as the Normandy crew works to activate mass relays, check on colonies--and for Shepard to reconnect to the Geth Consensus to find answers.

    *Featuring art by Alan M. Capes (seealandraw) [Ch.7+20], The Pixel Agora (thepixelagora) [Ch.11], and Clara Dapitan (chaaistheanswer) [Ch.30]

    Summary

    When the afterlife spits her out one more time, Shepard has to come to peace with living in the world where war is seemingly no more. Not all is great in the paradise as new conflicts emerge from the old wounds. For the first time in her life, Charry Shepard can’t help but think that Reaper invasion was the easiest part of being a hero / A series of stories exploring the Mass Effect universe after Charry Shepard makes the ultimate sacrifice… but still gets her happy ending. Post-Synthesis / primarily Shakarian / Colonist War Hero Shepard / Project Lazarus 2.0 / Less of a fix-it and more of a loophole-it (totally possible if Normandy crew and Reapers worked together)

    Summary

    Ten years have passed since Garrus and Jane disappeared to become farmers of all things. They knew this day was coming, the day when they couldn't hide any longer. That day is here.

    Jane Shepard is taken by henchmen and taken to Javik who has plans for the universe. His first mistake was keeping her alive to see the destruction.

    ***

    Okay, I'm just getting started on this one so gotta be patient, but I'm really excited to do an older Shepard here. She's 44 by my calculations, and out of practice.

    As always, Bioware owns it all and I am but a mere fangirl fangirling.

    Summary

    Ten years after Commander Shepard activated the Crucible, triggering synthesis throughout the galaxy and neutralizing the Reapers, Jack is raising their daughter, Molly. Having her existing trauma compounded by the loss of the person she loved most, and having been further traumatized by the loss of the only person who made her feel safe, she's been overprotective as she raised Molly. When Molly is nine years old, a conversation with EDI causes Jack to try to change her parenting somewhat, as well as fueling her examining herself on a deep level.

    This is an alternate version of a fic of mine with the same title featuring Tali instead of Garrus.

    Trigger Warning: The opening scene of this fic contains a depiction of the tail end of an intense PTSD-triggered panic attack. This scene also contains mentions of self-harm, auditory and tactile hallucinations, non-consensual surgery, and sensory overload.

    Summary

    Miranda Lawson has done it before, so she can surely do it again.
