    Summary

    There has always been a section of the galaxy closed off to all of the galactic Civilization. Known simply as the Montoken Region and encompassing 20% of the galaxy, no one has dared stray close to this region. It supposedly is home to monsters of all kinds, dangers straight out of nightmares, and even leviathans that roam the space hunting everything. It has been so dangerous that even the Reapers have avoided the area throughout all their cycles.

    What Happens when dozens of species, hundreds of civilizations, and thousands of different lifeforms evolve in the safety of this Region? Answer: They murder each other until an outside force makes them all work together. That was what happened, the Prethoryn Scourge forced the nations of the Montoken arm to work together.

    Now in 2900s, these nations, United under the Galactic Commonwealth of Nations, look to explore and expand outside the Montoken arm. They will encounter the 'powerful', the misfortune, and those seeking to bring the galaxy under their heels. It's a good thing the Commonwealth has a bunch of Titans however because some people are going to need a laser down their throats.

    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

    Shepard has faced countless enemies; she even defeated the collectors, along with her trusted team. When she goes on a solo mission to Aratoht to spring an Alliance operative from prison and investigate claims of intel on the impending reaper invasion, everything goes wrong. An entire system is wiped out because of her actions. She's prepared to face the consequences, but she isn't prepared for the consequences of cutting ties with Cerberus. Other unexpected consequences are coming her way, too...

    Lieutenant James Vega has to live with his actions on Fehl Prime. An entire colony died because he chose the intel over the people. He'd prefer to drink his leave away in a bar and return to duty as dulled to emotion as possible, but Anderson has other ideas. He finds himself recruited for a surprising assignment; personal security for his hero. She's been mistreated, attacked, betrayed and nearly killed. It's James' job to ensure that no further harm comes to her. He'll take his duty more seriously than anyone could expect.

    Summary

    [BREAKING NEWS: Alien AI-Controlled Ship Makes Contact in Salarian Space!]

    “Alarms rang throughout the system of Antilin yesterday when an alien ship bearing a strong AI signature triggered fears of a Geth attack. Renko Turwin, Director of Near-Orbital Security, explained: "When evidence of powerful AI heuristics was detected onboard, however we consulted Quarian scientific advisors who assured us that the signals failed to match any known Geth signatures."

    According to Turwin, the biggest surprise came next: "The ship's intelligence then communicated with us. It asked us to calculate the value of Pi to the first quadrillion digits. Some 20 questions followed after that, all of them beyond our realm of expertise. We're currently awaiting advice from outside consultants before proceeding. As yet, the ship matches no known alien species."

    A super massive vessel appears at the edge of known space, offering advanced technologies in exchange for emergency aid... but the data proves harder to retrieve than anyone could have expected. While deep in the digital world of the alien servers, a multinational tactical group gets more than they bargained for when a virus turns reality into fairy tale.

    Summary

    Lena is not what you would call 'boring'. Raised by an Alliance Veteran and a particularly ornery Krogan after her father left, she was raised to accept everyone, alien or human. After her Grandfather died, she found herself the owner of his bar in the Citadel's Wards.

    Things have been... difficult. She's trying to move through her grief, while working hard to ensure that her grandfather didn't make a mistake by leaving her his beloved bar. The last thing she expected was to have a Spectre walk into the establishment, and into her life. Nihlus Kryik is suave, smooth-talking, and flirtatious, and she can't help but be drawn into him. But things take a turn when his job as a Spectre overlaps with her own - Cerberus is on the Citadel, and their plans might end up getting her and a lot of other people killed.

    Summary

    The Universal Century, only a few short years ago humanity nearly eradicated itself to the tune of a madman, now it spreads, free of most of its old hatred. Yet the galaxy won't let them rest. Humanity has finally formed into a single cohesive group of men, women, machines, and even a breed of aliens! Yet as humanity spreads through the stars, they encounter their own selection of troubles from both within and without. It is an age of exploration, Love, and Fighting. Humanity, still exhausted from the End War, sparked all to the tune of a demented clone, now seeks brighter places to rest.

    Yet the galaxy is not as empty as they would expect. The Citadel Alliance, made of several species, has long held sway across its reaches, disregarding that of the Terminus System. Utilizing the Prothean Relay System to spread. Yet in a thousand years, they had not seen conflict on a large scale. As such, they have grown complacent, some would even say arrogent. Yet the unexpected arrival of a damaged Quarian Ship in a previously uninteresting sector, draws the galaxies attention towards the front door of a new and combative species. Now two worlds are soon to collide with one another.

    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

    Ten years have passed since the war. With the last mass relay built, some of the original Normandy crew gather for its activation. But something goes horribly awry, and an explosion opens a rift. The Normandy is sucked into an Einstein-Rosen bridge, and Shepard wakes up later to a silent CIC. The crew is missing, and just outside the cockpit window, a mass relay is in view. The only problem is that it looks similar to the relays destroyed during the war.

    Sucked through space and time into another universe three years before the Reaper Invasion. What will Shepard change? How will it change her?
