    Summary

    Shepard wakes up in bed with a strange man. Her hair is cut and dyed. She has scars she doesn't remember. Her home on the Pacific with Kaidan and their daughter doesn't exist. Instead of being called Councilor, she's on trial as an Alliance traitor.

    War-torn, brutal, and hurtling toward destruction, this is a galaxy formed by her renegade decisions. Ten years of cutting corners and betraying friends has turned everyone in this timeline against her, including the man she loves. To get home, she'll need to win back his trust to find a rare artifact.

    Powerful enemies and dangerous secrets stand in her way, and time is running out. Soon she'll be locked in place forever. She'll never see her family again. It's a fate worse than death. But escaping it, may take her death.

    ***Story is finished. Posting once a week.

    Summary

    SAM was just following Alec’s orders. It isn’t his fault that he is programmed to serve the Pathfinder and, by extension, the Initiative’s interests. It isn’t his fault that Alec made this order his top priority. It isn’t his fault that he is failing because Ryder’s mental strength is too strong for him to continue carrying out this order.

    All he can do is do everything in his power to keep certain memories under metaphorical lock and key. For humanity. For the Initiative. For their future.

    Summary

    In 2170 Mindoir was raided by batarian slavers, killing or enslaving the entire colony. It was thought that the first human spectre, Commander Shepard, was the sole survivor of the brutal attack. But when evidence that his sister is alive comes to light, his world is turned upside down.

    Yet, survival comes at a cost. After all, heroes aren't born from happiness. And this tale delves into a dark, brutal world as we come to know the siblings who had the courage to endure and stand against the tide.

    A story of resiliency, determination, and hope in a galaxy of disrepair. This fic will follow our young heroes through the conclusion of the Reaper War. Yet, this is not a simple retelling of the trilogy. The entire war will be rewritten in order to give our galactic villains, the Reapers, the respect they deserve.

    * Any chapter(s) with graphic, sexual violence will be prefaced with a warning, and easily skippable. While abuse is never portrayed in a positive light, it is present. And even though I devolve into humor, banter, and what I hope to be heart-warming moments, there are psychological aspects and scenes throughout that some may find uncomfortable.

    Summary

    Colonist, Sole Survivor, and then the hunt for Saren, the Reapers...as the galaxy piles onto Commander Shepard, the Normandy crew supports him, worries for him, and love him. Multi-POV.

    || “Well, you do have the gift of gab, helping people feel better, getting to the bottom of things.” Steve stood, dusting his pants off absently. As he continued, he moved to the hamster’s cage, the warm-blooded pet. It squeaked at his proximity. Shepard smiled faintly. “But I can see why you’d be tired of it now. Convincing people of the obvious. Politicians. Conditions. You ever think of just flying, nowhere particular, just the open sky, the stars—”

    Summary

    Many years ago, the Milky Way Galaxy was plagued by pirates. The most feared pirate of them all was known as Nihlus Kyrik.

Years after his death, his legacy remained but now, his map leading to his trove has found its way to Garrus Vakarian's claws. But with the renegade Shepard watching hid every step, will he be able to find Kyrik's trove?

    Summary

    “What had happened earlier was one thing: it was an inevitable release of built-up tension that found its outlet in the form of Kaidan pressing Shepard against a wall and fucking her until she couldn’t stand. But this? Being vulnerable and honest and loving? That was something neither of them were sure how to navigate again.“

    A slight AU in which Kaidan never got injured at the end of Priority Mars. Tensions are at an all time high with Earth under attack and Kaidan's constant accusations on Mars. Something finally gives in Shepard's quarters.

    A fic that elaborates on the Priority Mars mission and Shepard and Kaidan's growing animosity and distrust toward each other. Lots of angst and arguing and Kaidan being an asshole. But some steamy hate sex. The epilogue is tender lovemaking.

    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

    From the gutters to the stars, Gale Shepard clawed a path out the bloodstained dirt of Earth. She always was a firm believer of charging forward. From the skies to the dirt, Liara T'Soni dug a path through the bloodstained bones of Protheans. She always was a firm believer that the most important truths were rooted in the past. They're simple ideologies, complicated by collision.

    Rated Mature, but may change to Explicit in the future.

    Summary

    singularity (n.)
    1. the state, fact, or quality of being singular.
    2. a singular, unusual, or unique quality; peculiarity.
    3. Mathematics. singular point.
    4. Astronomy. (in general relativity) the mathematical representation of a black hole.
    5. a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence and other technologies have become so advanced that humanity undergoes a dramatic and irreversible change.

    The adventures of Lieutenant Commander Elizabeth Shepard, autistic/neurodivergent biotic, and reluctant heroine as she finds herself being assigned to the position of Executive Officer of the SSV Normandy SR-1 during its shakedown cruise and beyond. This is not quite a novelization of the Mass Effect trilogy since my focus is not on retelling everything verbatim, but with a focus on the moments between missions and moments which are significantly changed from the games either due to the actions of the characters or through fixing things that the author feels need fixing.

    Summary

    Still an ongoing WIP. This was supposed to be a very self-indulgent oneshot smut fic, and then it became three chapters and 20k words, and then I added more worldbuilding and leadup, and now I'm-- idk. Here? This is my first fanfic work in probably 15 years, and Mass Effect has me by the metaphorical balls as a diehard krogan simp. Basic premise is Shepard's life post-destroy ending is one of endless political posturing. Everyone wants a piece of her and it's shredding her already tattered soul. So she ends up seeking advice from an unlikely source, and decides to make a major life change. Spoiler alert: I don't see Wrex and Shepard as star-crossed lovers or anything like that (no love-at-first-sight stuff from me) and their friendship is very important to me; I think you should be friends with the people you love, personally. There will be nsfw stuff but them being friends is The Good Shit.

    Tuchanka stuff starts at Ch. 6.
    For those that came for the smut, I'll do you a solid and denote the specific chapters when I get them posted. TBA.

    Don't be afraid to leave comments letting me know what you think. Engagement validates me [insert discord pleading eyes emoji]
