    Summary

    It started with a routine mission to Eden Prime, but exploded into so much more. Faced with the prospect of needing to save the galaxy from a dangerous synthetic race called the Reapers, and having to deal with a galaxy that doesn't want to believe in them, Commander John Shepard will need more than a well-organized team to stop Saren Arterius and his geth warband from summoning the Reapers from dark space. He'll need something... Miraculous.

    Summary

    “She smiled at him and her aura was blinding — significant and full of life, burning with the power of a thousand suns. He leaned into it. His hands circled her waist and pulled her close, reveling in the warmth of her body. She was the brightest star in the sky, and he could only watch in awe as she became a supernova.”

    Garrus Vakarian is a disillusioned C-Sec officer who just wants to do the right thing. At the perfect time, Elle Shepard, a defense attorney who has dedicated her life to fighting for the innocent, walks into his life and turns his whole world upside down.

    A Shakarian romance/Mass Effect AU.

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; from the way his onyx eyes followed the movement, she was confident it was only the beginning.

    *A major re-working/updating of a story I originally wrote between 2014 - 2017*

    Summary

    In a different reality, the batarians' home systems did not fall to the Reaper invasion on 21 September 2186. It is the day Kaidan Alenko, Alliance Intelligence Specialist, stumbles upon a silent, insidious threat creeping across the galaxy.

    He reluctantly follows orders to team up with Commander John Shepard and stop the threat. Used to working on his own, Kaidan isn't prepared for the mutual attraction igniting between them and quite unexpectedly, he doesn't just have a threat to deal with, he has to grapple with his attraction to Shepard.

    As if matters are not complicated enough, Kaidan has a secret that he does not want anyone, including Shepard, to know. Both weapon and burden, his secret set him apart from the rest of humanity. But when work and attraction collide, he finds himself right in the centre of the storm and his secret exposed.

    26 May 2021:
    After reviewing my posted chapters, I've decided to break them up into smaller chunks. They are pretty dense, so hopefully by doing so, they are easier to read.

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Summary

    A re-upload of a finished project. Story originally posted on HF starting in 2011 and will span the entire trilogy which wasn't quite according the the original plan. Was persuaded by a few ppl to post on here aswell to find a bigger audience. Fixed the formatting in the earlier chapters to hopefully make it better to read. English is not my native language so expect grammer issues here and there. Alot of dialog is used from a game's playthrough as it heavily tied to and around the game's plot points. I hope you will all enjoy it.

    Original description: Jarod; A guy who has the hots for asari. So we'll follow selective parts of his story and see how well he does in life.

    Summary

    The First Contact War didn't have to happen. That was the consensus of the Citadel Council. The Alliance agreed, for the most part. This is the story of those who were there. It's their account of the events surrounding that conflict and beyond.

    Summary

    Garrus & Elle continue their adventure into Mass Effect 3! This one is a lot exciting and a lot heartbreaking, but it won't be exactly what you expect. Yes, I'm saying that the ending won't be canon because screw that. There's a lot more to come.

    **Not a standalone!** You'll probably be lost if you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first.

    CW/TW: dark themes, tons of angst, graphic descriptions of violence/war, very graphic sex

    It's Bioware's sandbox!

    Summary

    A routine salvage mission on a derelict freighter uncovers a cult conducting sinister genetic experiments. The crew of the Normandy struggles to deal with the threat from Saren and the Reapers, the Collectors and Cerberus, as well as from this mysterious cult. Commander Jane Shepard and Garrus Vakarian develop a relationship, but can it survive Shepard's death? How will they move forward?

    I've tried to write this work like a DLC, in that the timeline and events of the games are mostly unchanged, but additional content has been added. However, as the effects of earlier changes ripple outward, the world will become more AU.

    Status update (March 21, 2021): I'm still working on editing older chapters (chapter 23 was updated today), as well as writing new ones.
