    Summary

    Elle & Garrus are off to Andromeda! It's a whole new galaxy of threats and challenges, and the Shepard-Vakarian family has some battles of their own too. Even after everything they've conquered, even though they're stronger than ever, they never imagined anything quite like Andromeda.

    ** This is not a standalone ** If you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first, don't blame me when you don't understand most of this. Mind the tags for the series.

    Title Inspired by Levitating - Dua Lipa.

    Summary

    Fighting alongside Commander John Shepard and traversing through the galaxy has made Tali’Zorah aware of one thing…quarians are not well liked, hated even. She realizes that quarians have to fend for themselves, just as they have for the last 300 years. Desperate to do anything to help her people, Tali begins to question what she is fighting for, and the lengths she is willing to go for her own kind. Even if that must mean partnering with an undesirable ally to achieve what she desires, then so be it. The one that stands in her way, her very own boyfriend. Can she do what must be done, or will Shepard stand in the way of her people's ascension and perfection?

    Summary

    To Garrus Vakarian, Commander Nova Shepard’s name suited her well, a beautiful yet deadly explosion of light in the galaxy; and to witness such an explosion in her made Garrus question his true feelings towards her. Too bad he couldn’t tell her that.

    Summary

    He'd left the force to join her. Returned because she pushed him, hitting home when his father never had. He'd watched when the flag was draped over her empty coffin. Watched when the Council turned tail, dismissed the Reaper menace. He'd watched till the one disillusioned day he could watch no more, and then he'd watched himself quit, turning his back on the ones who'd turned their backs on her. Now they were serving together again, shooting the shit and shooting their foes and looking damn good while they did it. Something had happened when the commander died: she’d come back altered, angrier, and adrift. Garrus couldn’t get a lock on why things were a little different this time around. But Shepard was his captain come hell or high water, and that was enough to go on.

    Shepard, Vakarian, and a hell of a lot of banter with a shot of doom and gloom. Strap in for a tour spanning Mass Effect 2 and the spaces between, and watch out for flyby Batman jokes. Updates every Sunday until further notice.

    Summary

    Garrus' thoughts and feelings regarding Commander John Shepard were easy to understand and explain: He respected and admired the human Spectre and would follow him into hell in a heartbeat. His feelings regarding his crewmate and friend, Lieutenant Jane Shepard, however, weren't as clear cut. She'd taken up residence in his head and wouldn't leave.

    Summary

    Humans are exceptionally skilled at adapting, fast and violently, when needed. Turians are fiercely dedicated and proud of the militant prowess that marks their species across the galaxy. Both are willing to burn the ground they stand on to win a different type of war.

    In the twelve years that followed human’s rough introduction to the galactic community beyond the Charon relay, little changed the general distaste for homo sapiens ‘ingenuity’ amongst council species. Sparked by the rapid rise of human political power, species extremism polarizes Citadel space. Forced to work together, Shepard and Garrus are tasked with investigating a string of terrorist attacks that threaten to destabilize galactic peace. What starts as a collection of awkward firsts, develops into a game of broken rules and self-deception. For Shepard and Garrus, facing the truth about themselves and each other just might be the hardest feat.

    Set in an alternate universe.

    Summary

    After an assignment gone FUBAR lands Shepard in Medbay without a kneecap and Garrus in the bunk over without another damn piece of his face, the two are forced to confront a truth better left undiscovered: bedrest is boring as hell. On the other hand, at least they have company this time around.

    A slice of life series transpiring between the events of Ch. 10: Consequences and Ch. 15: Holding Pattern in Enough, the slow burn Shakarian fic that’s been simmering for ten years. No context needed, but Shepard's flavor is 'paragon but increasingly cynical,' and if you like these vibes, you’ll probably enjoy the longfic too. tldr it's just banter and a ridiculous break from the present doom and gloom of Enough.

    Summary

    “Stand in the ashes of a trillion dead souls and ask the ghosts if honor matters. The silence is your answer.” - Javik, Mass Effect 3

    When Midoriya Izuku’s mother dies in a villain attack, he feels as though there’s nothing in his life left worth living for. After his mother’s funeral, a wormhole opens up in front of him. Izuku walks in, uncaring of where it takes him or what it might do to him. He just wants to get away from a life that has nothing left for him.

    Conversely, during a mission one Commander Jane Shepard ends up in a lab where a scientist has been studying alternate realities, branching timelines. Shepard soon realizes the scientist was successful with one of their prototypes, and she’s shocked when a depressed, injured and underweight teenager walks right out of the unstable wormhole. What is she supposed to do with a kid?

    This is the story of how Midoriya Izuku became the hero the Milky Way galaxy never knew it needed - and the son Commander Shepard never knew she’d have.
