    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

    Commander Shepard's live got turned upside down in one afternoon. Moira Shepard might be the first human Specter, the hero of Elysium and truly the Vangard of Victory, but she's also human.

    This is her story.

    There are changes, friendships that are there in the beginning that are fleshed out and such. I do try to keep it to canon, but obviously... there are just too many good ideas to just... leave it completely canon!

    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

    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

    The life and story of Allison Shepard - Systems Alliance enlistee, renowned War Hero, ICT graduate, N7 specops, Spectre candidate, Hero of the Citadel, Terrorist, Traitor, Prophet, Saviour - is a long and complex one, and as time shifts fact can turn to story. Story to legend. And legend to myth.

    The entire truth of Allison's life, every moment she lived and experienced, is impossible to recreate. But what can be done, however, is identify the major points in her life that defined who she would become. The story of Allison Shepard has three starting points, and beyond that there is a lot more to tell.

    (Introduction and overview of my planned series documenting Allison Shepard's life, from many years before the events of Mass Effect One, and continuing for many years after the end of Mass Effect Three.)
