    Summary

    After five years of extortion, pressure, and grief, Shanxi’s colonists have had enough. A select few brave souls lean into the assistance of their supposed enemy to free their fellow colonists from
    their true captors. In the midst of the occupation, an obscure mechanic with few memories of her past is an informant and a saboteur of sorts, discreetly assisting their liberators – a “traitor” as their oppressors would say, or a “ghost,” as her correspondents refer to her.

    She once said that she would fight for something worth dying for until she found something worth living for, but what is the cost of either? With heavy trauma inflicted during the Conflict, she rebuilds and moves forward, seeking an individual and a future that supersedes all else, and changes who she is in pursuit of both. The journey reveals much more about herself than she ever wanted to know…

    Excerpt
    I looked around and had trouble finding the mods, so I looked back at Jacob. “Any mods?”

    “Not at this station.” He answered and I sighed frustrated.

    “Right. Shitty choices it is, then. From what I learned from your logs, Cerberus has all the credits in the galaxy, and you can’t even afford any decent choices for weapons? That’s pitiful, if anything.” I pointed out through my frustration.

    Summary

    It’s remarkably hard to work out where in the universe you are without a single map reference point. Even worse, when all your preconceptions about the universe see themselves turned upside down and you're left without a point of reference for life itself.

    Trapped in a ship orbiting a star on the wrong side of the galaxy, Shepard has to figure out a way to get home - now if only she knew why she was out here in the first place.

    First contact slow-burn shakarian AU with distant inspiration from "Project: Hail Mary", see authors note at beginning for full context.

    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)
