    Summary

    Lt. Commander Shepard, the White Death of Elysium and borderline pariah, is named commander of the Fifth Fleet's newest frigate, the SSV Normandy. Her task? The sort of thankless, redaction-heavy missions N7s train for, on call to do cleanup whenever and wherever Admiral Hackett says go. Along the way she forms an unlikely band of misfits into a highly effective army, and discovers just how thin and flimsy the galaxy's veneers of normalcy truly are. (An AU/"Reaper-free" TV-Show-format series. Cross-posted on FFdotNet)

    Summary

    For N7 Day, a drabble set in a larger fic I'm working on. It's an AU where Shepard attends an asari dance camp and meets Nihlus, the prickly dance instructor who's tasked with teaching her to—yeah, it's Dirty Dancing 😁 Except when they reunite years later, Shepard is in a relationship with Garrus, and the three of them begin an exploration of the complex and boundless nature of love.

    Happy N7 Day! 💞

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian never believed in bonding, despite the fact that he’s seen friends and family swear by the bond. All of them Turians bonding with other Turians. Simple. Easy. Biological.. But Garrus hasn’t ever felt that spark - not until a certain human female appears on the Citadel one day to marry a Turian Spectre.

    Garrus Vakarian is not that man.

    But he feels magnetised towards her instantly - in ways he can’t begin to explain - and he doesn't know what the hell to do about it.

    How can Garrus convince Commander Shepherd that they’re bond mates if he isn’t even sure what that means?

    How do you tell someone that they were always meant to be yours?

    A new inter-galactic war looms on the horizon if Shepard refuses Nihlus’s hand. What will she choose: duty or love?

    FemShep x Garrus Vakarian AU. HEA guaranteed. Non-Reaper AU.

    Summary

    I'm feeling the eyes of the fallen
    They're watching me, they make me see, they make me see
    I'm feeling the pain how you break them and make them bleed
    You make them bleed, you make them bleed

    Many people like to say they'll rest when they're dead, but for Talisa Shepard, it seems rest is only for the wicked. Torn from the Heavens and thrust back into the realm of the living, she finds herself surrounded by strangers, even among those she once knew.

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you, once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming deep within we all know

    As entire human colonies vanish without a trace, Talisa must forge uneasy alliances with the enemy in order to find and stop those responsible. But she is a woman out of time, out of place, and even with the guidance of the spirits that watch over her, she struggles to come to terms with her second chance at life.

    The way that you torment me
    The way that you challenge me
    The way that you make me bleed

    Talisa always knew blood was the price of freedom, but no one ever told her it would cost her sanity as well.

    Summary

    Every day since the raid on Mindoir, the Alliance has failed Rie Shepard. She's been thrown from broken system to broken system with no hope of standing on her own two feet, red tape dragging her along like a marionette. It's only a matter of time before she manages to snag a pair of scissors...

    As interesting a concept the Reapers are, they really tend to pigeonhole the direction of the story, dont they? Well, I've decided to say "fuck all that" and write my own version of what would happen if that little star fucker never existed. Depending on how invested I get in to this AU, I may start to go in to the Protheans a bit more. But that'll be waaaaay off. Until then, expect this to mainly stick to the drama of the Batarian Hegemony, gangs, politics, and later on Cerberus.

    There are QUITE a few tags so I dont blame you for skipping them, but they will likely grow in number as I continue to write. If you all have suggestions, dont be afraid to leave a comment. A writer is only as good as her audience is responsive.

    Enjoy!

    Summary

    *Re-written/edited* June 9 2022. I went through everything adding more exposition and more detail because I am still actively working on this story.

    This story was supposed to be a short one-shot, full of smut and fluff. I was writing to practice for another story I’m working on and somehow it turned into something entirely different. Enjoy.

    *Warning*
    This story is explicit and graphic in detail. This includes violence, blood and the use of some medical terminology. If you are a person who becomes queasy or nauseous at the idea of blood this, chapter is full of it. You have been warned.

    It started simply enough. He was purely a platonic distraction. A man who was a good storyteller and he had something she wanted… whiskey. The day’s mission had weighed heavily on her and she didn’t want to think about it anymore. Life aboard a starship had always been hard but somehow recently, it had gotten worse. Ever since Kasumi had moved in to port observation, going to the lounge for a drink was impossible. Unless you wanted to play 20 questions with her for an hour and on that particular night, Shepard wasn’t in the mood.

    She headed down to the engineering deck and knocked on the old mercenary’s door…

    Summary

    In 2178, the turian and human governments decide on a series of joint ventures to promote cooperation. In 2183, after years of missions together and a solid relationship with Nihlus Kryik - her partner for said 'Cultural Exchange' - Briar Jane Shepard is to be the XO for the Normandy's shakedown run.

    ---

    My Shrik shipper heart has always loved the idea of them meeting earlier in such a way. And as much as I'd like to break canon, this is my Shepard's worldstate (aka full of angst, because I'm mean).
    This is the prequel to my longer ME2 fic "Follow you down". There will also be a longfic focusing on Nihlus and Shepard before the events of ME1.

    Summary

    PART 4

    Jane is made the first human Spectre and her job is to stop Saren before it's too late. We follow her as she follows leads, meets new people, enters new relationships and follows through with the promises she made to herself.

    Excerpt
    “I’m shocked you didn’t add her to the pile of five you brought to me.” Nihlus said stunned.

    “Like I said, she’s been through a lot. She’s spent the last seven years on her own. Something bad happened during her last mission. I don’t know if she’s ready for this right now.” Hackett explained, but didn’t elaborate.

    “You both obviously care for her. If it’s any comfort, then that would be where I come in, Admiral. It would be my job to work with her, mentor her, and see her skills for myself. But from what you’ve both told me, it sounds like she definitely has the skills we’re looking for.” Nihlus answered calmly.

    “She does, but-”

    But Nihlus was done talking about this and interrupted Hackett immediately. A stern look was on his face. I managed to hide the smile I felt working up my face. He was going to put Hackett on the spot, and since Nihlus could be intense, this would be settled now.

    Summary

    You're pushing me into the corner
    Don't fight with me, don't fight with me, don't fight with me
    I'm crowning no man for his armour or Rhapsody
    For what I see and what I feel

     
    Talisa Shepard never considered herself to be a hero. She only wanted to do some good for herself, for those around her. Few Earthborn orphans were able to leave their lives of hopelessness and destitution. She was one of the lucky ones.

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you, once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming, deep within we all know

    When her love is killed, Talisa vows to stop at nothing until the one responsible is brought to justice. But nothing is ever that simple. Learning that there are more sinister forces at play, Talisa must fight to defend the future of the galaxy and all those in it.

    So raise your banner, fight your war
    Break the silence, no remorse
    Won't die within
    Raise your banner, won't you come?
    Fight the venom, the good die young
    Won't die within

    It won't be easy, and blood will be shed, but as Talisa and her team well know: blood is the price of freedom.

    Summary

    Everyone has heard of the story of the strong and confident Commander Shepard who bravely fought the Reapers and saved the universe as the universe's most badass soldier. In this alternate reality story, that Shepard doesn't exist. In her place, this Commander Shepard is a nerdy timid Engineer, cowed by a lifetime of abuse and thrust into a position (or several positions) that she absolutely should not be in.
