    Summary

    NOVEL!! Many chapters incoming. :)

    This saga takes place about 10 years after the Ryder saga. New heroes, new enemies are coming. The quarian ark has made it to Andromeda an brought hanar, drell, volus and quarians with into the galaxy. Furthermore there is a slight merge between Mass Effect and Shadowrun. You will recoginze familiar shadowrun classes and terms.

    I hope you‘re gonna like it. The story is about Samuel Wolfsbane, an elven ki-adept, commander of the "Phoenix", with a great destiny, his sister, Samara Wolfsbane, aspiring emissary of humans and his very colorful an very crazy crew. And the space dachshund Tiberius.

    This novel contents homosexual love! Also violence, battles, drama, action, sex with mature content, many adventures, martial arts and comedy. I‘m not a native speaker so my English isn‘t that excellent. Now enjoy! :)

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    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

    “Nobody knows why we got these,” Kezk shrugs when Aubine asks about the words painted over her armored hump, “Some people say they’re reminders of people that affected the course of our lives. Some people say they’re soulmates or some other bullshit like that.”
    “What do you say?”
    Kezk laughs and slaps her tiny shoulder. “I say that if you ever want to charge like a krogan, you’ve got to get a handle on those biotics first.”

    Aubine Shepard has more words on her than anyone probably should. She has dozens of 'thank yous,' several sets of words from those she's fought and come out the only one standing, and a set of sapphire on her arm she uncovers when she needs to. She's a war hero, one of the most famous Alliance operatives at this point, so she supposes it's a little expected.
    The Reaper is not.
    (Or: a soulmate mark subversion that follows Shepard through the trilogy, looking at the consequences of the trope. Like words from a Reaper.)

    Summary

    He looked down at Shepard, who was tired but happy. There was a glimmer on her cheeks, highlighted by the ambient violet of the sky above. She was warm in his arms. He must be the luckiest man in the galaxy if it meant that he could hold her like this.

    “I'll never get over how beautiful this is,” Shepard sighed.

    She was talking about the Citadel, he knew that. An emotion lodged in his throat that he wasn’t sure he could say out loud yet. The emotion that always fluttered and festered when it came to her. How she was the one person he always had on his mind, since they were both seventeen and musing about travelling through the stars outside Arcturus.

    “Me either,” Joker said softly, and it was no lie.

    But he wasn't looking at the Citadel.

    Summary

    After Shepard's death, Garrus changed. When she died, part of him did too.

    Living on Omega as Archangel rewired his perception of pursuing justice, going against everything Shepard had taught him while he was serving on the Normandy. Even after Shepard's resurrection, Garrus couldn't be persuaded to spare Sidonis, despite the concern coming from his partner. Shepard needs to make a decision — does she attempt to change him or accept their differences?

    Summary

    The first time Reyes Vidal heard SAM’s voice inside his mind, it scared the piss out of him because it was unexpected. Then in the heat of a battle they seemed destined to lose, it scared the piss out of him because it meant he was Scott Ryder’s only hope for survival, and he was too far away to get to him in time.

    Months after Meridian, two men’s newfound, unexpected, and all-consuming relationship faces its greatest test yet – of will, of technology, of fortitude and of love. Friends become enemies, some friends become closer, and some of them are forever changed by what goes down.

    Summary

    Shepard had never been great with sniper rifles, but she figured it was never too late to learn. And Garrus had been acting cold since the incident with Sidonis on the Citadel. So Shepard asked him for his help, hoping to kill two birds with one stone: he was the best sniper she knew, and a low-key round of target practice seemed an ideal way to get him talking. She hadn’t realized until now how much she relied on their easy friendship, and she was not about to let it go so easily.

    ~*~

    This fic can be read as a stand-alone, or as a prequel to my other story, Practice. This Shepard is a Colonist Sole Survivor with a maxed-out Paragon score who also loves a good Renegade interrupt.

    Summary

    Previously posted in ~2014/15 under my former AO3 account rathrunpredictabl - new updated edition forthcoming*

    It wasn't that Thane couldn't handle these inexperienced idiots by himself. It's just that she preferred not to let him, on principle.

     
    An 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. Another firefight later, it becomes clear this is no simple opportunistic ambush. Someone set them up. This is a longer game.

    Across desert sands, a claustrophobic freighter, a mercenary base, a mining station and a domed city, Shepard and the remaining crew will face heavy mechs, disguises, sword fights, card games, chases, betrayals and escapes in their quest to find out who sent the mercenaries and to put a stop to them.

    But the trail winds through some dark, forgotten places, and both Shepard and Thane will have to face memories they thought they had buried deep inside them...

    (Post ME-2, post-Arrival DLC; pre ME-3)

    Summary

    "Grunt observes the Commander, the Tank encouraging him to learn all he can about her. She is powerful, after all. A substantial threat if she ever decides to challenge him. So he watches, and he learns.

    Commander Shepard has a predatory glint in her eyes, and her smiles bare more of her teeth than those of the other humans on the ship. He wonders if she is unusual in that regard, or if the rest of them are simply showing deference to her. The second wouldn’t surprise him. The Tank murmurs about humans and their fragility, but Shepard is a force of nature. He sees the way she charges into battle, a flurry of biotics and rage, and even the Tank hums in approval. She shouldn’t be able to wield so much power, yet she does."

    Grunt learns about Shepard, before, during, and after his Rite.
