    Summary

    Six months after the Battle of the Citadel, Arlen Kryik is an experienced but deeply scarred C-Sec agent on the hunt for a dangerous and psychotic criminal. Meanwhile, the Joint Security Task Force team have only hours to stop a sudden, deadly threat to the Citadel. Amidst rising political tensions between the asari and turians, with high-ranking members of both races seeking to expand their influence in response to the human newcomers on the Council, these seemingly unrelated incidents will collide in a way that will shake the galaxy to its core.

    OC conspiracy thriller set in the Mass Effect universe with appearances from minor and major canon characters. Some new concepts and organisations invented to fill niches or gaps within lore but everything very carefully researched so as not to conflict with existing canon.

    Summary

    Both John Shepard and Ashley Williams are soldiers to a T, he is a war hero coming from an esteemed military family, she is longing for a chance to prove herself, as her family name has been nothing but a hindrance for her career.
    When their paths cross, they discover that they have more in common than they thought, and soon, unforeseen tensions arise. Feelings which might hazard everything that has been important for them till now, especially the uniform they are wearing, and the oaths that went along with it. And all that while the galaxy is in danger.

    My take on the Mass Effect 1 arc, containing mainly off-screen moments between Shepard, Ash, and the crew, serving as background for the other parts in my series.

    Summary

    Mae Beckham has spent her life trying to live up to the legacy her mother and father left behind. Ever since she and her sister fled to the Citadel after their parents' political assassination, she has dreamed of supporting their life's mission to get humans on the Citadel council. With humans now on the council, she aspires to join the Alliance to strengthen their military presence, and has spent years climbing the ranks of The Academy to earn her spot on the Guangzhou-one of the top performing ships in the Alliance fleet.

    This story takes place just after the human race joined the council, and looks at the political implications. It also explores how recruits join the Alliance, and follow the crew aboard the Guangzhou as they try to defend the Citadel and the races that inhabit it from a new enemy. Not many of the original characters will appear in this story, and it is an original plot that will deviate from canon, but the races/places/lore of Mass Effect are used.

    Summary

    After the destruction of the Bahak System and the Suicide Mission, people begin to jump ship off of the Normandy. Still reeling from her recent escapades and hard decision-making, Commander Jane Shepard despairs as she watches helplessly as friends and squadmates flee her presence for greener pastures, the music of the Alliance court martial she faces drawing nearer and nearer as the Batarian Hegemony scream for her blood. Amid the forlorn final tour of the Normandy and missing her Omega, Shepard assumes a mysterious mission from her former-yeoman, Kelly Chambers. A quiet contact of Chambers', codenamed "Cypher", has gone missing on a desperate search for Reaper Tech in the Attican Traverse. Desperate to help Kelly see her friend again, Shepard takes the remaining crew of the Normandy on a hunt for Cypher, fearing that Cerberus and the Illusive Man are behind his disappearance, but as the skeleton crew and their weathered commander make for the Citadel, an old Batarian enemy takes it upon himself to force Shepard to answer for her butchery of Aratoht...

    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

    They say that science demands sacrifices, but 'they' never specify which. Nothing drastic, Tess learns. Just one relationship after another, lost to parsecs of space. Love and grief grow in tandem, inverse, leaving her feeling empty and numb. What better to fill the void than a dangerous new job?

    The (questionable) thinking of an incurable careerwoman leads her on the adventure of a lifetime, and through all sorts of weird and alien straits. As for romance? Maybe. She thinks so. What is it, anyway?
