    Summary

    General Victus receives an order from the new primarch: assassinate Urdnot Wrex using a bomb the turians planted on Tuchanka a thousand years ago. He refuses, and she orders his death.

    Wrex, irritated that Adrien has missed his turn at Words with Friends, revives the Monster Mash, picks up an old friend and a new one, and then they head to Palaven to rescue Adrien.

    Which leads to a question: does anyone know how to disarm a bomb? And does anyone know how to find a hidden bomb?

    The sequel to The Admiral’s Body in the Presidium Gardens with the Poisoned Syringe.

    Summary

    Six months after the Battle of the Citadel, Arlen Kryik is an experienced but deeply scarred C-Sec agent on the hunt for a dangerous and psychotic criminal. Meanwhile, the Joint Security Task Force team have only hours to stop a sudden, deadly threat to the Citadel. Amidst rising political tensions between the asari and turians, with high-ranking members of both races seeking to expand their influence in response to the human newcomers on the Council, these seemingly unrelated incidents will collide in a way that will shake the galaxy to its core.

    OC conspiracy thriller set in the Mass Effect universe with appearances from minor and major canon characters. Some new concepts and organisations invented to fill niches or gaps within lore but everything very carefully researched so as not to conflict with existing canon.

    Summary

    Shepard chose to destroy the Reapers.

    My take on what happened after ME3, lots of angst, Shepard is very broken, but it'll eventually have a happy end.

    Follow on piece to 'And the Sky Full of Stars', but can be read as a standalone (they got together in late ME3)

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the Earthborn, mostly-Paragon, biotic, misfit heroine of The Null Room and The Passage finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    Disclaimer #1: Shepard's and Vega's 'ship will make more sense if you've read the previous stories.

    Disclaimer #2: this story is LONG, in part, because it contains a great deal of dialogue pulled directly from the video game, with minuscule tweaks and mental commentary. i've tried to keep it as (modded - EGM & MEHEM) canon as possible.

    Disclaimer #3: edited play-through footage is available on Youtube. it runs in tandem with the story (including edited scenes that don't exist in the game - but, i'd argue, could - and added banter). because i'm evidently insane. links in every chapter.

    Disclaimer #4: Contains adult language. Void where prohibited. Please avoid operating heavy machinery while reading this fic.

    Summary

    Palaven was burning over her shoulder as Commander Shepard told Adrien Victus he was next in line to be its primarch. He looked past her at first, only a lifetime of dedication to the Hierarchy compelling him to leave Menae and join her on the Normandy to play politician. But as he runs the turian war effort from her ship, he finds in Shepard a fellow soldier with unflinching courage and determination to save her people—and his.

    As their war campaign converges, so do they.

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; from the way his onyx eyes followed the movement, she was confident it was only the beginning. And with Garrus always close by her side, Shepard had a feeling it would be one hell of a ride.

    Summary

    There were flames everywhere. The trees were on fire, blocking most of the ways he could get out of that place. The air was thick with smoke, forcing him to cough. The throat felt dry and it burned with pain. Sweat dripped from his brow due to the prevailing heat. Ashes soared pitifully. Somehow he managed to get out into a larger clearing. There were charred bodies everywhere. Everything was dead.

    "Everything's all right. I’m here with you."

    Summary

    It is the year 2183, and humanity has been under the thumb of the Hierarchy for twenty-six years. Client race status has not sat well with many humans, despite the good-faith attempts at inspiring amicable relations between the two species. When a tragedy on Eden Prime sparks a hunt for rogue Spectre Saren Arterius, it's up to the Normandy's human-turian crew—the first of its kind—to track him down. The humans and turians will learn more about each other and themselves as they unite against the greatest threat the galaxy has ever faced.

    And some, like the turian Spectre in training and the human cabal squad leader, may be lucky enough to find love along the way.
