    Summary

    Gareth Vakarian, former Alliance and former C-Sec, adjusted well to being to only human on a Hierarchy ship. He didn't mind working for a turian, and especially not a woman like Commander Janna Farvardin, the Shepherd of Cipritine.

    He admired her first as a mentor, then as a friend. Still, it was a surprise when he realised he was attracted to her, although in retrospect she was absolutely his type. You know, terrifying.

    AU, Human!Garrus/Turian!Shepard. Set during ME1. Smut, oneshot.

    Summary

    Garrus is still trying to figure out how humans... work. And the vids Joker sent him are wholly unhelpful.

    At least Shepard seems to know just as much about turians as Garrus knows about humans.

    As it turns out, turians hear drell voices differently. Garrus suffers accordingly.

    Summary

    Whatever Kaidan had been expecting from the Butcher of Torfan, this isn’t it.

    There’s nothing krogan-like about the soldier sitting at the table. The lethal gaze from the vids is watery and unfocused. The empty bottle in his hand isn’t a gun, but he clutches it like one. When the bartender delivers a fresh one Shepard doesn’t look up, merely pops the top off and takes another quick pull.

    This isn’t good.
    ~

    Sam Shepard and Kaidan Alenko, in the years before the Normandy. AKA, the slowest of slow burns.

    Summary

    The 14-year old-kid who changed David Anderson's life.

    The unexpected mentor who changed Sam Shepard's.

    The kid can’t sit still. Sam is like a walking, talking action figure, in a perpetual state of motion with no sense of his own body. According to Daniel he’d just hit a growth spurt, shot up to over 175 cm in the space of a month, and it shows. It’s like watching a puppy try to figure out what to do with four feet, and the Alliance is shipping him off to learn how to play with dark energy.

    No wonder Daniel had called him. Without someone to keep an eye on him, this string bean of a kid might take out the whole system.

    One-shot stories featuring Sam Shepard & David Anderson pre-ME1.
