    Summary

    In a different reality, the Protheans did the impossible: they defeated and killed the Reapers.

    Thousands of years later, Kaidan Alenko was born to a human father and a mermaid mother. Reconciling all aspects of himself was not an issue, and he was content to keep his Mer heritage a secret.

    On 21 Sept 2186, Kaidan uncovered a silent, insidious threat to the galaxy. Before he knew it, the crisis became personal and his secret was in danger of being exposed.

    To save the galaxy, Major Kaidan Alenko, the lone-wolf Alliance Intelligence specialist, reluctantly teamed up with Commander John Shepard, the first human Spectre - and the one man he's attracted to in a very long time.

    He planned to save the galaxy, protect his secret and manage his attraction to Shepard without ever letting the Commander find out what he was.

    He also forgot the saying about best-laid plans...

    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

    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

    Shepard has faced countless enemies; she even defeated the collectors, along with her trusted team. When she goes on a solo mission to Aratoht to spring an Alliance operative from prison and investigate claims of intel on the impending reaper invasion, everything goes wrong. An entire system is wiped out because of her actions. She's prepared to face the consequences, but she isn't prepared for the consequences of cutting ties with Cerberus. Other unexpected consequences are coming her way, too...

    Lieutenant James Vega has to live with his actions on Fehl Prime. An entire colony died because he chose the intel over the people. He'd prefer to drink his leave away in a bar and return to duty as dulled to emotion as possible, but Anderson has other ideas. He finds himself recruited for a surprising assignment; personal security for his hero. She's been mistreated, attacked, betrayed and nearly killed. It's James' job to ensure that no further harm comes to her. He'll take his duty more seriously than anyone could expect.

    Summary

    More than once she heard stories about battles and their participants. Listening to them, however, she did not believe that defeat could have any glory in it.
    It only took a moment for her to see how terrible, not to say desperate, the war was. There was nothing heroic about it. It could only lead to absolute destruction. The reapers almost succeeded.

    Although she survived, she only heard about the consequences. It was not given to her to see it with her own eyes. Now living the future and the mass of memories from the past, she had to face more obstacles. After all, who comes back from the dead twice?

    Summary

    This series explores one potential outcome of Mass Effect 2's loyalty missions--one where Garrus spares the traitor Sidonis, and one where Thane Krios successfully prevents his son Kolyat from following him down the assassin's path. The former, no longer on the run from his old vengeful commander, has finally collapsed into himself to become a drunken and depressed shell of a turian. The latter, given a second chance through community service work with Citadel Security, has to wrestle with the sudden reappearance of his absent assassin father--and process the cognitive and emotional dissonance that follows. Through unfortunate circumstances and twisted serendipity these two outcasts collide, each giving the other a different perspective and, potentially, a friend.

    Will the traitor Sidonis be able to, through his works, efforts, and intentions, atone for his crimes? With the spiteful prodigal son find his own path through life, and find peace? Will these two loners be able to reconcile the dissonance between their experiences and the universe in which they reside?

    Summary

    In the fallout of the worst string of decisions in his life, Kolyat Krios does his best to push on with his head up, taking whatever job Bailey pushes on him with C-Sec. However, atonement is never simple, and forgiveness seems impossible when your issues span ten years and a shattered family.

    His life is further unravelled when he meets Indigo Carter, a newcomer to the Citadel intent on forging herself a place in the galaxy. For her, life’s anxieties revolve around coursework and orchestras, but when a man is murdered in front of her, Indigo finds herself on the fringes of an underground war that threatens to unravel the station.

    An underworld of violent crime, ruthless betrayals, and deadly grudges cuts jagged marks into the Citadel’s idyllic shine, and when the Reapers eventually come, they almost feel like a welcome cleaning service.

    Summary

    Blessed by the gods, Shepard is tasked with hunting down those responsible for the violence done to her. The offense done to the gods when she was ripped across time, brought back from death, cannot go unanswered by the Siha.

    This draws on a bunch of things from the first, so read that first and is the second in the series (of three). This will go through the events of Arrival and the first half or so of Mass Effect 3, though there will be more substantial shifts from canon, it will still have the same main missions, etc. Thane lives. Another bit of a slow burn after Shepard gets taken into custody and brought back to Earth.

    Summary

    Turians have a simple concept: you can do whatever you want as long as it doesn't interfere with your duties. Simple enough. But does that include musicals? Because when one Turian auditions for humanity’s greatest entertainment called Broadway, he might have bitten off more than he could chew with balancing duty, and love.

    Summary

    Thane and Shepard realize they might be interested in each other, and then things happen. This continues through the suicide mission and Shepard's imprisonment. It will continue at some point. My hope is to carry all the way through to the end of ME3.

    Summary

    Ten years have passed since the war. With the last mass relay built, some of the original Normandy crew gather for its activation. But something goes horribly awry, and an explosion opens a rift. The Normandy is sucked into an Einstein-Rosen bridge, and Shepard wakes up later to a silent CIC. The crew is missing, and just outside the cockpit window, a mass relay is in view. The only problem is that it looks similar to the relays destroyed during the war.

    Sucked through space and time into another universe three years before the Reaper Invasion. What will Shepard change? How will it change her?

    Inspiration from Found by Kate_Shepard on Archive of Our Own.
