    Summary

    Commander Shepard is dead. In his place, a man wakes up to a galaxy that's moved on without him. Forced to ally with the monstrous organisation Cerberus, the newley rekindled Shepard discovers he's a shadow of the hero he used to be.

    Saddled with a suicide mission to stop the extinction of mankind, the commander is trapped between stopping a new and deadly enemy, and trying to piece himself back together.

    Facing his most dangerous mission yet, Shepard quickly discovers that without something deeper than duty to his mission, he won't be coming back at all.

    A Shepard/Tali novelisation of Mass Effect 2, with slight changes to the canon. This story will follow a man scarred by death. There will be fluff and fun to be had with the commander and his close friends, but ultimately this will be a tale of overcoming loss and grief.

    Thanks in advance to all my readers. I hope you enjoy!

    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

    Chapter 8 has arrived; Chapter 9 is coming!

    Where life is not so unjustly taken from a hero who has more than earned the breath in their lungs and the love in their arms.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.

    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

    Commander Shepard is drawn to a planet containing a Prothean artifact through a dream, but he is soon haunted by surreal and dark nightmares that make him question his own sanity. And as various crew members begin acting strangely, Shepard wonders if everything was what it seemed with the Prothean artifact. Are the Protheans conducting an experiment from beyond the grave? Or were the crew of the Normandy SR2 never meant to handle the remains of such a powerful species? Or is there something else darker at play?

    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?
