    Summary

    Summary: A turian Lieutenant fights for the lives of his platoon. A human General struggles to maintain peace. As they both fight their own battles, each one struggles to surmount colossal objectives. Until they met at last.

    Excerpt:
    What Victus never accounted for was the possibility of going to war with a newly discovered race. Perhaps, when he was younger, he had held grand thoughts of leading a team against another acid-spitting, fourteen-eyed insect race like the rachni. He would shoot a phantom individual in the head with his imaginary shotgun and step away heroically to avoid the resultant green spray of acidic blood and brain matter while his platoon cheered.

    Of course, as he aged, such fantasies of resplendent heroism died long before he landed on Shanxi. Fortunate, because their enemies were not six-eyed insectoids that spewed acid and shat webbing. They were bipedal like most races, with only two forward-facing eyes, asari-like hands, and they bled red when bullets hit them. Sometimes, they even cried like asari.

    Human, they called themselves.

    Summary

    The first contact war was followed by years of hot and cold warfare between humans and turians. Several attempts by the council to force a permanent truce has failed. Now both the Hierarchy and the Alliance has agreed to an armistice which has lasted for 6 years. Gagarin Station (Jump Zero)has been established as a place of reconciliation, where turian recruits and human biotics train side by side as supposed allies. However, old grudges die hard and for some of the students it's hard to let go of the past.

    Will friendship outlast the end of childhood? When team Four is spread across space, divided by duty, will something remain of Jump Zero’s lessons, or will the new emerging enemy strain every relationship past its breaking point?

    New chapters (pretty much) every week!

    Summary

    She was Commander Shepard. Newly appointed War Hero and symbol of the Alliance. She would have to do her best to work for peace, but she still had to expect hostility to come her way. That was all she had experienced, all she knew. Playing nice with a bunch of aliens might be harder than she originally thought. She could only hope they would keep their promise, especially whoever she would be working with. Honestly having no clue what working together really meant.

    First Contact War AU.

    Summary

    Shanxi was far from a lost cause.
    With the turian fleet in decline it was time to take the colony back and reclaim humanity’s dignity from their blood stained talons.
    But were the alien invaders as monstrous as they seemed? Were humans any better? With a chance encounter with a turian ground fleet commander infamously known to the Alliance as the Ghost, Sophie Knighton wasn’t so sure but was the charge of treason really worth the risk to find out?
