    Summary

    Shepard tries painting, with mixed results. It's not her favorite new hobby, but it helps to focus on something other than questioning her very existence. Feeling more like a ghost haunting a body she doesn't trust, Shepard desperately wants to prove she can be more than the weapon Cerberus intended her to be. One way might be to make this body at least feel like it's hers. Luckily, she has a friend who's willing to help.

    Summary

    A Shakarian romance that goes above & beyond (or at least before & after) what we were given in the games. Some canon, some AU - the characters don't always follow the arc they were given. This is my take on my favorite romance. Enjoy!

    This story continues in my other works!

    **MATURE CONTENT WARNING** Check the tags. Graphic sex, graphic violence, character death.

    Title inspired the theme and was inspired by the song from The Greatest Showman.

    Summary

    Hey Commander,

    We’re on our way back to Earth. Not for you; you’re definitely dead. I said we should find a beach somewhere and retire, but no one ever listens to me. Garrus and Liara said we’re going to Earth because that’s what you would want. Which I guess means it’s kind of for you. If I can get the Normandy off of Sur’Kesh. I mean, I can definitely get her off of Sur’Kesh. After everyone else fixes her.

    Oh, by the way; Garrus is an asshole now. You know how he always had that stick up his ass? Yeah, now it’s a club. A big one. I don’t know how he fits it up there when he’s not using it to beat everyone into his way of thinking. The only person he’s afraid to use it on is Liara, and I’m pretty sure that’s because he knows she’ll put him in stasis if he gets too out of line. He’s pissed that you died. Pissed that we’re stranded. Honestly, he’s just pissed about everything.

    Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m kind of pissed at you, too. You’re Commander fucking Shepard. You’re not supposed to die. Permanently, anyway.

    If things work out we should be able to stop by in six months or so. Clear your calendar.

    See ya,
    The Best Pilot in the Galaxy

    Summary

    **This Follows the Plotline of ME 1**

    Faith Shepard has a deep family history in the military-- unfortunately it isn't the only thing her family's given her. A whole host of genetic inheritances coupled with a childhood in space has left her allergic to a laundry list of shit, and her many illnesses have her constantly fighting to prove she's capable. Up for the job. Not doomed to a life shoved behind a desk or set on a shelf like a glass figurine.

    Unfortunately every mission she's on seems to go awry, and somehow they keep praising her for it anyways. It's hard to feel like a big fat hero when people die. Shepard's doing everything she can to try to balance her scales and prove there's a place in the universe for her, and it finally feels like she might be redeeming herself when she's tapped for Spectre, but man...even that can't seem to go right.

    The scales have gotten a lot bigger, and the consequences, too. It's hard feeling the pressure of past and military family and expectations as well as the fate of the universe. Oddly enough, it's her new Turian friend that seems to understand that more than anyone. But, well, he's an alien.

    And she's allergic to him.
