    Summary

    Humans are exceptionally skilled at adapting, fast and violently, when needed. Turians are fiercely dedicated and proud of the militant prowess that marks their species across the galaxy. Both are willing to burn the ground they stand on to win a different type of war.

    In the twelve years that followed human’s rough introduction to the galactic community beyond the Charon relay, little changed the general distaste for homo sapiens ‘ingenuity’ amongst council species. Sparked by the rapid rise of human political power, species extremism polarizes Citadel space. Forced to work together, Shepard and Garrus are tasked with investigating a string of terrorist attacks that threaten to destabilize galactic peace. What starts as a collection of awkward firsts, develops into a game of broken rules and self-deception. For Shepard and Garrus, facing the truth about themselves and each other just might be the hardest feat.

    Set in an alternate universe.

    Summary

    I'm feeling the eyes of the fallen
    They're watching me, they make me see, they make me see
    I'm feeling the pain how you break them and make them bleed
    You make them bleed, you make them bleed

    Many people like to say they'll rest when they're dead, but for Talisa Shepard, it seems rest is only for the wicked. Torn from the Heavens and thrust back into the realm of the living, she finds herself surrounded by strangers, even among those she once knew.

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you, once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming deep within we all know

    As entire human colonies vanish without a trace, Talisa must forge uneasy alliances with the enemy in order to find and stop those responsible. But she is a woman out of time, out of place, and even with the guidance of the spirits that watch over her, she struggles to come to terms with her second chance at life.

    The way that you torment me
    The way that you challenge me
    The way that you make me bleed

    Talisa always knew blood was the price of freedom, but no one ever told her it would cost her sanity as well.

    Summary

    Every day since the raid on Mindoir, the Alliance has failed Rie Shepard. She's been thrown from broken system to broken system with no hope of standing on her own two feet, red tape dragging her along like a marionette. It's only a matter of time before she manages to snag a pair of scissors...

    As interesting a concept the Reapers are, they really tend to pigeonhole the direction of the story, dont they? Well, I've decided to say "fuck all that" and write my own version of what would happen if that little star fucker never existed. Depending on how invested I get in to this AU, I may start to go in to the Protheans a bit more. But that'll be waaaaay off. Until then, expect this to mainly stick to the drama of the Batarian Hegemony, gangs, politics, and later on Cerberus.

    There are QUITE a few tags so I dont blame you for skipping them, but they will likely grow in number as I continue to write. If you all have suggestions, dont be afraid to leave a comment. A writer is only as good as her audience is responsive.

    Enjoy!

    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

    When Heroes Collide, War Trembles in Fear.

    Grace Shepard not only found her crew on the Collector base, but strange Aliens she's never seen and humans dressed in old military garb.

    Evune Lavellan was sitting in the Exalted Council chamber when the Seeker swarms came, but not everyone survived the Collector base...

    This is a headcanon of what I believe would happen if The Inquisitor and Shepard met, set in the Mass Effect timeline. I believe if these two Heroes ever joined forces and worked together that War itself would tremble in it's boots.

    It's canon that the Thedosian planet is in the Mass Effect universe, so what I have cooked up isn't as far-fetched as "crossover anarchists" would think.

    Summary

    Following the events in The After. It won’t make much sense if read as a stand-alone piece.

    Mindoir is attacked again and Jane must step into her N7 Spectre role again. It brings back memories, both pleasant and unpleasant.

    Edit July 17 2022: I apologize, dear readers. I made some significant mistakes calculation mistakes while writing!! Shepard would have been 15 by the end of BAaT, so she could not have been there before the Turians were brought it. I will rewrite some parts of the flashbacks to account for it. However, as a result, Mindoir happens a year early, when Shepard is 15. I hope you can forgive me.
