    Summary

    Yup, I went super AU with this one. It's another “the asari make first contact with humans first” fic but this time set in the 1950s, and technically a prequel to Reflections on the Razor's Edge. It'll be somewhat of a slow burn at first, but there will definitely be a steamy romance between Col. Jane Shepard and Liara T'Soni (despite the almost immediate thirst aplenty between them, who am I kidding, they're soul mates). I was sort of inspired by another Mass Effect fic on AO3 by drabbles (https://archiveofourown.org/works/23786239) that was based on the movie Arrival (2016) and it was really just super brilliant, but appears to have been sadly discontinued. I guess I wanted to retell it, and put my own spin and interpretation on it.

    Some of the asari language terms, and also certain references to asari culture and biology, are derived from the amazing work of alephthirteen, another author here.

    Also, again since this is very heavily AU, in this telling and at this point in history, women have long been equal in the structure of the US military and so we will be seeing some high-ranking female officers like Jane Shepard. Other than that, not much is changed in the culture of the 1950s.

    Summary

    One year to the day after arriving in a new universe that she has only seen through an LCD screen before, Tegan Aidoni, a multiverse drifter, gets into the thick of things. She has had only one grace year to get herself ready. She has learned not all is what it seems and she now knows, from long experience, that her knowledge about any universe she once believed was fictional is at best a vague guide and at worst a collection of deadly traps. Even so, it is not within her to just stand aside and watch the worlds burn. She could, no one would know to stop her, but why would she?
    Besides, she has a lot to lose, too. She has found love in places she had not expected to find it and in ways she had known of before, yet also in ways she had never dreamed would be possible. Maybe it is a reward of sorts, maybe it is not. Either way, she does not want to lose those few she truly cares about. Thus, Tegan Aidoni is going to fight for her future. If that ensures others will have a future as well, she won't mind, but she won't overly care much about it either.
    That, and she is also starting to like living lives that are far from her boring first one.
    Let's dance!

    Summary

    There were flames everywhere. The trees were on fire, blocking most of the ways he could get out of that place. The air was thick with smoke, forcing him to cough. The throat felt dry and it burned with pain. Sweat dripped from his brow due to the prevailing heat. Ashes soared pitifully. Somehow he managed to get out into a larger clearing. There were charred bodies everywhere. Everything was dead.

    "Everything's all right. I’m here with you."

    Summary

    The Presidium was a mess, but the shops were still open. 

    Dana found herself impressed, sidestepping smoldering wreckage on her way down the steps to the lower market. Stress was evident enough, more blatant than it had been before, the Citadel having gotten its first harsh dose of reality and it was hard for its citizens to pretend the war was some distant, hazy thing with their shining white walls and floors littered with debris. 

    She angled her trajectory to the trio of shops just below Apollo's, catching snatches of conversation between shopkeepers and C-Sec and every day civilians. She largely tuned them out, as inconspicuous as she could be in the hoodie she'd stolen from Kaidan earlier, and was blessedly left alone as she browsed the different kiosks. Supply lines were strained, available goods and services stretched thin, but this was the third time she and Shiala had managed to arrange some time together and she wanted to do something…nice, for the Asari. 

    What the fuck do you get an Asari Commando?

    Summary

    There were many things the Butcher of Torfan was known for, and pining wasn't one of them. 

    And it was all-out pining, Kaidan was stunned to learn. Soft sighs, distant expressions, thoughts a million miles away. He'd come to learn a lot about Dana Shepard over the past few years and while he would easily count most of those things as genuine surprises, this newest facet of the Commander took the proverbial cake. 

    "Just ask her out."

    An exaggerated huff as she collapsed onto the sofa beside him and he hid a grin, shaking his head. 

    "You can't just go asking people out, Kaidan! There's a war on!"

    Summary

    Some things happen in "You and You and Me Make We" that I wanted to go into further detail on, but couldn't justify including them in the main story due to the fact that they either didn't involve the three viewpoint characters or only involved them peripherally. So, therefore, this. Title may change later.

    Summary

    Knight-Commander Shepard, crowned Kingslayer for her dethroning and beheading of a false king, was a woman who brought with her name fear for the unjust and hope for humanity. Through unusual and unwelcome circumstance, she finds herself summoned to the Thessian court, the last on a long list of suitors for the sole heir to the Asari throne. A simple arrangement of political gain for humanity, yet what the Asari gain Shepard can not begin to imagine, much less when she meets her bride, who seems as well versed in people as Shepard herself is in politics.

    In the halls of the palace, shadows whisper. The empress is hiding something, Shepard is sure of it, yet her growing feelings put her at a disadvantage, less focused on the political scheming around her and far easier to manipulate for the fascinations of her heart.
