    Summary

    Colonist, Sole Survivor, and then the hunt for Saren, the Reapers...as the galaxy piles onto Commander Shepard, the Normandy crew supports him, worries for him, and love him. Multi-POV.

    || “Well, you do have the gift of gab, helping people feel better, getting to the bottom of things.” Steve stood, dusting his pants off absently. As he continued, he moved to the hamster’s cage, the warm-blooded pet. It squeaked at his proximity. Shepard smiled faintly. “But I can see why you’d be tired of it now. Convincing people of the obvious. Politicians. Conditions. You ever think of just flying, nowhere particular, just the open sky, the stars—”

    Summary

    From the gutters to the stars, Gale Shepard clawed a path out the bloodstained dirt of Earth. She always was a firm believer of charging forward. From the skies to the dirt, Liara T'Soni dug a path through the bloodstained bones of Protheans. She always was a firm believer that the most important truths were rooted in the past. They're simple ideologies, complicated by collision.

    Rated Mature, but may change to Explicit in the future.

    Summary

    singularity (n.)
    1. the state, fact, or quality of being singular.
    2. a singular, unusual, or unique quality; peculiarity.
    3. Mathematics. singular point.
    4. Astronomy. (in general relativity) the mathematical representation of a black hole.
    5. a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence and other technologies have become so advanced that humanity undergoes a dramatic and irreversible change.

    The adventures of Lieutenant Commander Elizabeth Shepard, autistic/neurodivergent biotic, and reluctant heroine as she finds herself being assigned to the position of Executive Officer of the SSV Normandy SR-1 during its shakedown cruise and beyond. This is not quite a novelization of the Mass Effect trilogy since my focus is not on retelling everything verbatim, but with a focus on the moments between missions and moments which are significantly changed from the games either due to the actions of the characters or through fixing things that the author feels need fixing.

    Summary

    Thane Krios is the best elite assassin in the galaxy. And he has less than a year to live. He decides to perform one last altruistic act by killing an asari mobster and just as he is about to embrace Kalahira's calling, Commander Shepard of the Alliance shows up with a suicide mission for which she needs him.
    Jane Shepard has returned from the dead. Her last memory is the Normandy SR-1 shattered in space by a Collector ship's beam. She has awakened on a Cerberus space station. Two years have passed since the attack and his former comrades, the Alliance and the Citadel Council do not take kindly to her supposed resurrection or her association with the Illusive Man's organization. Meanwhile, Collectors abduct human colonists in the Terminus Systems and no one seems to care.
    For Thane, death was his ten years of battle sleep driven only by his thirst for vengeance, while for Shepard, the two years unconscious while strangers did and undid with her body without her consent. Together they will find their way back to life and with their comrades venture into the bowels of the galaxy from where no ship has ever returned.

    Summary

    I'm feeling the eyes of the fallen
    They're watching me, they make me see, they make me see
    I'm feeling the pain how you break them and make them bleed
    You make them bleed, you make them bleed

    Many people like to say they'll rest when they're dead, but for Talisa Shepard, it seems rest is only for the wicked. Torn from the Heavens and thrust back into the realm of the living, she finds herself surrounded by strangers, even among those she once knew.

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you, once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming deep within we all know

    As entire human colonies vanish without a trace, Talisa must forge uneasy alliances with the enemy in order to find and stop those responsible. But she is a woman out of time, out of place, and even with the guidance of the spirits that watch over her, she struggles to come to terms with her second chance at life.

    The way that you torment me
    The way that you challenge me
    The way that you make me bleed

    Talisa always knew blood was the price of freedom, but no one ever told her it would cost her sanity as well.

    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

    On peut faire tout un monde avec des si, alors c'est ce que je compte faire.

    "Et si Garrus avait quitté le C-Sec avant l'arrivée de Shepard à la citadelle pour dénoncer Saren ? Et s'il était devenu Archangel bien avant la mort de Shepard ? ET SI, cette dernière le rencontrait de la meilleure des façons possibles ? Bienvenue dans le repaire d'Archangel ! "

    HELP

    It had asked for help.

    As the last flicker of electricity coursed through its now ruined circuitry, what little energy available was used to send out a request for help.

    Like any other person would do.

    The afternoon had started just like any other assignment coming from Hackett, but never in her life did Commander Shepard ever thought about feeling like she had murdered someone by blowing up a computer network, and she's not happy about it.

    Summary

    He looked down at Shepard, who was tired but happy. There was a glimmer on her cheeks, highlighted by the ambient violet of the sky above. She was warm in his arms. He must be the luckiest man in the galaxy if it meant that he could hold her like this.

    “I'll never get over how beautiful this is,” Shepard sighed.

    She was talking about the Citadel, he knew that. An emotion lodged in his throat that he wasn’t sure he could say out loud yet. The emotion that always fluttered and festered when it came to her. How she was the one person he always had on his mind, since they were both seventeen and musing about travelling through the stars outside Arcturus.

    “Me either,” Joker said softly, and it was no lie.

    But he wasn't looking at the Citadel.

    Summary

    As humanity and other Council races develop along the path set by the Reapers, a different civilization is born. Developing alongside but separately from other species, isolated from the wider galaxy. An Empire with its own FTL technology, independent and oblivious to the existence and power of Mass Relays. What will happen if a civilization so different from others in almost every way, joins the Galactic community?

    Summary

    Shepard picks up a turian sniper named Archangel as an ally in her campaign against the Collectors, but something seems a little off about her. Why doesn't she ever take her helmet off? Why does she only go by her codename? And why is Shepard falling so quickly into her orbit?

    Summary

    The threat of the Reapers has been held at bay with the defeat of Saren and Sovereign. The Citadel Council has been saved, albeit at the expense of many Alliance lives. With the Normandy in dock for repairs and shore leave ordered for the whole crew, Kaidan invites Allison Shepard to join him on his planned shore leave to Casablanca and Vancouver.

    What starts off as fun and responsibility-free time together begins to unwind as the dreams Allison has been having since Eden Prime resurface with more frightening visuals. And when news of Terra Nova under threat from batarian terrorists filters through, Kaidan begins to see a side of Allison he'd never suspected would exist.

    Aegri Somnia - literal translation 'A Sick Man's Dreams', taken from Ars Poetica by Horace.

    Summary

    There is a thin line that we share between our world, and the next. An alternate reality. Some actions and choices have been altered slightly, or there will be content entirely made up but still centred around Kaidan and Male Shepard. WARNING: There is major spoilers please finish all three games to continue.
