    Summary

    Omega was her home now: the perfect hideout for the runaway Lieutenant Murphy; a place where the Alliance would never dare to crawl into. Even so, anonymity was a must, especially when she worked for the ruler of that scum place, Aria T'Loak.
    Or that's what it looked like.
    A vigilante known as Archangel fought against the gangs and bad guys that flooded the city. Crossing paths with him was just a matter of time.

    Summary

    It always starts with a bet.

    The Shepard twins grew up roaming Earth’s forgotten streets. They kept each other alive and made a habit of driving one another forward with bets. They started simply enough, but the older they got, the higher the stakes rose. To outsiders, it was hostile, grim, and competitive. To them, it was a game that gave them an edge in life. After a wager went too far, they found themselves enlisted in the Alliance military. Over ten years later, they’re assigned together on a shakedown run to Eden Prime. It’s time for their biggest wager yet; the title of first human Spectre. But when we make plans, our gods laugh.

    A tale of two Shepards taking on the events of Mass Effect 1. The galaxy will never be the same.

    Summary

    *Previously posted in ~ 2014/15 under my former account rathrunpredictabl - new updated edition forthcoming*

    No mercy have I for men, no god can save my soul / It's love and life I fight for with blade and gun in tow.

    Their attempt at a desert vacation on Rakhana goes awry when mercenaries intervene with rifles. Typical, thinks Shepard and immediately heads back out to confront their leader.

    But this is no simple opportunistic ambush. This is a longer game. Across desert sands, freighters, garbage heaps and domed cities, Spectre and assassin will face heavy mechs, hallucinations, sword fights, chases, escapes, not to mention their own demons, in their quest to find out who sent the mercenaries and to put a stop to them before any more people die.

    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

    John is just a soldier. Its all he's ever known. Go here, shoot the bad guys, go there and shoot the bad guys, and repeat. Occasionally push a button or two to mix it up. But after Eden Prime, his whole life suddenly changes and now the galaxy looks to him to have all the answers. To be the hero. Well thats some shoddy luck on the galaxy's part; it gets to have a front row seat to John making it up as he goes. At least he has a good crew of professionals to help him...they're all as crazy as he is, aren't they? Yup. The world is doomed.

    Summary

    I’ve finally gotten around to editing some really old stories I’ve had for Mass Effect and since they’re all kinda short, I’m gonna put them into a oneshot collection here.

    Enjoy, though you may be able to tell which ones are the older ones compared to the new ones...

    Summary

    Survivance of the decimated Earth population was a priority for the Planet Alliance at the Citadel but not an easy task considering the circumstances. Decisions had to be taken by the military brass, always looking for the common good. Decisions that not always benefit individuals. She was no more than an Alliance slave and it had begun to break her. A rotten but valuable apple in the N7 that they all had contributed to create. A collateral damage from the geth attack. A product of a war.

    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.
