    Summary

    He wasn't built for hope. Turians didn't have much use for the blind optimism of the desperate and the foolish when fatalism would serve just as well without all the self-delusion. Hope was a left-handed turn when he was made of rights. But Shepard put it there, grafted it into him like new flesh, and now he was an amalgam of her hope and his worn-out despair, asking which was the heavier weight in his chest as he looked at the Reaper construct wearing her face.

    Summary

    Dinner is at a series of food trucks in a brightly lit part of Omega, strings of lights lit up between all of them forming a multicolor canopy above them.

    “Damn,” Shepard says as she surveys it. “I could’ve worn the leather jacket.”

    “Shep, why would I take you somewhere you can’t wear the leather jacket?” Kasumi, who has absolutely required her to get into an absurdly fancy dress for a mission, says innocently. Garrus eyes the place but doesn’t seem like he’s too on-edge, like this place is a no-go for him the way some areas of Omega are. “Do a loop and then split up? Send a message when we find a table?”

    It’s the lowest stakes mission she’s had to coordinate in ages. Shepard hooks her index and middle fingers in against one of Garrus’ and tucks in close. “Let’s go.”

    Summary

    Immediately post-ME3, Paragon FemShep Control ending, Garrus-centric. The Reapers have vanished, but exact effects of the Crucible remain unknown and the relays have been shattered. A fractured galaxy is left in chaos and disarray, and Harasha Prime - the Council's foremost fuel center and refugee camp - is out of supplies, out of manpower and almost out of time. Solana Vakarian struggles to keep the mining planet from sinking to chaos, but every surviving fleet in the galaxy starves for Harasha's precious fuel - and many of them are prepared to take it by force.

    Garrus has lost Shepherd a second time. After the Council asks him to become a Specter and pick up the pieces she left behind, he repeats history and vanishes amongst the lost and the lawless. Harasha Prime isn't where he pictured a family reunion, but his problems always did look more clear through the scope of a rifle. Her ghost consumes him no matter how far he runs, and sometimes, he thinks being Archangel is safer than being Garrus Vakarian.

    Summary

    “Nobody knows why we got these,” Kezk shrugs when Aubine asks about the words painted over her armored hump, “Some people say they’re reminders of people that affected the course of our lives. Some people say they’re soulmates or some other bullshit like that.”
    “What do you say?”
    Kezk laughs and slaps her tiny shoulder. “I say that if you ever want to charge like a krogan, you’ve got to get a handle on those biotics first.”

    Aubine Shepard has more words on her than anyone probably should. She has dozens of 'thank yous,' several sets of words from those she's fought and come out the only one standing, and a set of sapphire on her arm she uncovers when she needs to. She's a war hero, one of the most famous Alliance operatives at this point, so she supposes it's a little expected.
    The Reaper is not.
    (Or: a soulmate mark subversion that follows Shepard through the trilogy, looking at the consequences of the trope. Like words from a Reaper.)

    Summary

    A bright eye-searing blue light and a rush of darkness. The sound of waves crashing on the beach, salt in her nose and on her cracked lips. A slight, familiar tug on her hair. Why is it so hard to move?

    An exploration of Shepard and the Control ending.

    Summary

    She was silent for a moment, studying him.
    “I know,” he laughed. “You can say it. I look like crap.”
    “No, you don’t,” she said softly. “I was merely considering how much time has passed.”
    “You saying I’m old, T’Soni?”
    “Yes,” she said simply. “I believe you are.”
