    Summary

    This story is mainly an experiment with writing different kinds of kinks into smut because life is too short to not enjoy some smut. There are warnings at the beginning of each smut scene, explaining what kind of kink is involved, if you're not into it, then skip to the next chapter. I do not know where I am going with this story but we dive right in so if smut is not your thing, then do not read.

    This is AU as fuck. Shepard doesn’t join the Alliance and Thane is darker and deeply lost in his battle sleep.

    Thane spares Shepard life when he mistakes her as the embodiment of the Goddess Arashu, who is the goddess of Motherhood and protection. When she is actually the embodiment the Goddess Kalahirao, the goddess of death.

    Summary

    Many years ago, the Milky Way Galaxy was plagued by pirates. The most feared pirate of them all was known as Nihlus Kyrik. For years he plundered and ravaged ships and colonies from over ten thousand systems. Since then, no one has found his trove but many had speculated that it lies hidden on a fabled planet in the Perseus Veil. 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

    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]

    Summary

    Thane Krios is the best elite assassin in the galaxy. And he has less than a year to live. He decides to perform one last altruistic act by killing an asari mobster and just as he is about to embrace Kalahira's calling, Commander Shepard of the Alliance shows up with a suicide mission for which she needs him.
    Jane Shepard has returned from the dead. Her last memory is the Normandy SR-1 shattered in space by a Collector ship's beam. She has awakened on a Cerberus space station. Two years have passed since the attack and his former comrades, the Alliance and the Citadel Council do not take kindly to her supposed resurrection or her association with the Illusive Man's organization. Meanwhile, Collectors abduct human colonists in the Terminus Systems and no one seems to care.
    For Thane, death was his ten years of battle sleep driven only by his thirst for vengeance, while for Shepard, the two years unconscious while strangers did and undid with her body without her consent. Together they will find their way back to life and with their comrades venture into the bowels of the galaxy from where no ship has ever returned.

    Summary

    “I need a drink,” she told him and watched as the old marine’s eyes filled with tears, nodding to her, bringing his forehead down to rest against her uplifted knuckles that were gripped tight in his hand.

    “You can go get one anytime, Lola.”

    “Can’t yet,” and she didn’t know why.

    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

    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.
