    || Tali quieted her footsteps and moved in closer to listen, leaning against the bulkhead.

    || “Right. What are you asking?”

    || “I want to know what you did or you said, that’s different. I mean you’re a cool guy and all, don’t get me wrong, but something had to catch Shepard’s attention to make you, you know…different.”

    Summary

    Commander Eliza Shepard is still reeling from a lot of things. The death of her father. The loss of her unit on Akuze. The troubled relationship she has with her mother.

    And now she has to deal with a rogue turian Spectre hellbent on bringing about the end of the galaxy.

    The only thing making it worthwhile is the rather adorably awkward asari, Doctor Liara T'Soni.

    A retelling/walkthrough fic of Mass Effect 1 with heavy focus on the Fem!Shepard/Liara T'Soni romance.

    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

    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/ridiculous banter 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 if you like these vibes, you’ll probably enjoy the longfic too. Attempting to update every Tuesday until further notice.

    Summary

    Shepard has never formed a relationship or a bond with anyone before. She grew up an orphan on the streets, joining the Alliance on her 18th birthday. She was the sole survivor of her unit that was sent to Akuze. She built herself up to be a strong soldier. When she awakens on the Normandy after coming in contact with the Prothean Beacon on Eden Prime, she feels a different kind of grief she's not familiar with. The loss of Corporal Jenkins is hitting her different, and she can't figure out why.

    Summary

    Shepard chose to destroy the Reapers.

    My take on what happened after ME3, lots of angst, Shepard is very broken, but it'll eventually have a happy end.

    Follow on piece to 'And the Sky Full of Stars', but can be read as a standalone (they got together in late ME3)

    Summary

    Chapter 8 has arrived; Chapter 9 is coming!

    Where life is not so unjustly taken from a hero who has more than earned the breath in their lungs and the love in their arms.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.

    Summary

    "Grunt observes the Commander, the Tank encouraging him to learn all he can about her. She is powerful, after all. A substantial threat if she ever decides to challenge him. So he watches, and he learns.

    Commander Shepard has a predatory glint in her eyes, and her smiles bare more of her teeth than those of the other humans on the ship. He wonders if she is unusual in that regard, or if the rest of them are simply showing deference to her. The second wouldn’t surprise him. The Tank murmurs about humans and their fragility, but Shepard is a force of nature. He sees the way she charges into battle, a flurry of biotics and rage, and even the Tank hums in approval. She shouldn’t be able to wield so much power, yet she does."

    Grunt learns about Shepard, before, during, and after his Rite.

    Summary

    More than once she heard stories about battles and their participants. Listening to them, however, she did not believe that defeat could have any glory in it.
    It only took a moment for her to see how terrible, not to say desperate, the war was. There was nothing heroic about it. It could only lead to absolute destruction. The reapers almost succeeded.

    Although she survived, she only heard about the consequences. It was not given to her to see it with her own eyes. Now living the future and the mass of memories from the past, she had to face more obstacles. After all, who comes back from the dead twice?
