    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.
    Please note that the timeline progression I set in this story is ~ 4 months off the official timeline of the ME stories. Realized this a little late.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Since the first man in space, Humanity as a whole, has changed. No longer are greed and selfishness the dominant behaviors of man, for they have caused too much death in such a short time.

    Little do people know, such long-lasting peace will eventually come to an end as new discoveries result in more conflict. This is First Contact... when Humanity and all of the Galaxy will enter a new page of their collective history.

    War will come.
    Civilizations will fall.
    Heroes will rise.
    The Galaxy... will burn.

    Summary

    Heat and pressure build a storm.

    Sara Harlow wanted everything on her own merit. She made her own choices, and her own mistakes. She was a veteran strike pilot, logged more flight hours than anyone in her squadron, a fighter, combat-tested, steely, and damn near fearless. She was a lot fucking more than Alec Ryder’s daughter. And she would prove it to Tiran Kandros.

    Tiran had every privilege Palaven had to offer and every success waiting for him, until he burned it all down. The new chapter he tried to write in the Andromeda Initiative ended in betrayal. Every time, he survived to be the one to ask why. The past won't let go, and this Pathfinder reminds him more and more of the woman who killed his trust.

    Summary

    After 2 years of operating on Omega, The Dark Knight comes to the Citadel in pursuit of a dangerous new drug that is about to be unleashed upon the very heart of Council Space. This will put him into an alliance with Lt. Garrus Vakarian of C-Sec's Major Crimes Unit. Together the masked Vigilante and C-Sec officer will fight back against this threat to the Citadel, but what begins as a fight against The Criminal Underworld quickly escalates into a fight against massive conspiracy that will threaten all of Council Space.

    Summary

    Illium, 2173. Dúisíonn Thane, gonta go dona, i trádstóras tréigthe, le poll nach léir ina chuimhne. Iarrann sé cúnamh charad leis an fiosrúchán, ach go luath faigheann sé amach a tá sé an t-íospartach de comhcheilg sádach. Déanann an seilgthe den sealgaire, ach ní theastaíonn sí é marbh. Teastaíonn sí é cloíte.

    Summary

    The Salarians will stop at nothing in the name of progress through scientific means. That includes creating a clone of a woman from a planet that died long ago. Dulan being a subject for research with the blood of a Qunari, will not be an easy project. Eventually escaping to the slums of Omega and building a mercenary team alongside a skilled Turian, with the title Archangel.

    (Almost all characters besides Dulan are cannon, and written through extensive research in both DA and ME lore. Directors notes, books, comics and even a short interview with Drew Karpyshy, one of the lead writers of mass effect.)

    Summary

    Alone and haunted by the ghosts of his dead friends, Garrus thinks of Shepard. He’d spent a long time trying not to think about her, losing his friend had been a wound that never healed. He wondered if she’d had a similar moment of clarify — a moment where she knew this was it, this was how she was going to die — or if she’d been mercifully taken out before reality had caught up with her.

    Set in the events leading up to Dossier: Archangel

    Summary

    Lantar tightened. “Why did you help me? What’s the real reason?”

    Garrus hummed, leaning into a hip. “Well… I hate bad guys. That should suffice.”

    Please. What kind of ridiculous logic was that? It pissed Lantar off, and he could hardly conceal the hostility. “But, to put your own life in danger-“ Lantar stumbled over the words, watching him turn to leave. “Like some hero?”

    That word made Garrus flinch, as though it had crawled up his spine like a baby rachni. He whipped back around, his scent something like frustration. “I’m not a hero,” his voice grew intense, “I just have to keep fighting evil no matter what.”

    ----------

    Enter an angst-filled mystery about the difficult life in Omega’s south districts and the gangs that wrestle for power. This how fighting back sparks a new group to rise up - team Archangel.

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Summary

    Brooklyn-born Jane Shepard grew up in a home for orphaned daughters. Restless and full of potential, she is ready to tackle the world. When she meets a gang working to improve the lives of the forgotten and downtrodden, they offer Shepard a life full of purpose - and an escape from the heavy burdens and expectations placed upon her. Jane will learn one can never truly run away and what it truly takes to be the hero she wants to be. Kaidan Alenko, separated from his loving family, pushes his body and mind to their limits in a station on the edge of the Sol system. Finding solace in the oppressive "Brain Camp" with his peers, he learns what happens when you always put on a brave face and suppress your emotions to a boiling point and it all comes spilling out. After years of working through their traumas, they finally reach the heights they have always dreamed about. Closing themselves off to focus on their goals, they both set their life on a certain path. But as they first lay their eyes onto each other aboard the SSV Normandy - they question what they thought life had to offer them while chasing down a Galaxy-wide threat. Part 1 of a planned 5-part series that explores the relationship between Shepard and Kaidan.

    Summary

    Loss is not a fixed moment in time. It is its own creature; gnawing, ravenous, unceasing in its devouring. Facing that sorrow, that loss, can make you one of two things. It can make you bitter, or it can make you kind. It...it did not make me kind.
    Sequel to "This Side of Yesterday" - A retelling of ME2 through the eyes of Liara T'Soni only, as wrapped in a story set centuries after the Reaper War's beginning. First and third person POVs.

    Summary

    It's the smaller stories, Doctor...the ones so often unrecorded, that are the most important. The deeds of heroes are nothing without the remembrance of private moments, what shaped them. I would not have mine go untold. And I can think of none better to share them with...than you. -

    Summary

    Kaidan Wrestles with his admiration for his Commander as they pursue a rogue Spector. He grows closer to Shepard and the Squad as they continue their pursuit, as time passes and new challenges arise, Kaidan must decide whether he will stand by Shepard or move away as the paragon he loves starts to embrace a more ruthless side in the hope of galactic stability.

    This series is primarily meant as fairly canon following with having Shepard and Kaidan get together in ME1 and expand upon challenges they face together and individually as the story goes on. Hope to follow through into ME2 and ME3 with even some post ME3 content.
