    Summary

    A conclusion to the Mass Effect Trilogy that holds as closely to canon as possible that, adding in a little indoctrination theory, gives some better closure. Includes most of the main characters from the trilogy, with some Shega romance thrown in.

    Cross-posted from fanfiction.net. With the release of the Legendary Edition, I figured it was time to finally migrate it here.

    Summary

    He wasn't built for hope. Turians didn't have much use for the blind optimism of the desperate and the foolish when confidence and good-old-fashioned fatalism would serve just as well without all the fanfare. 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 all her impossible questions as the universe teeters on the brink of a new war.

    Summary

    "I waited two years for you, Shepard. There was never a doubt in my heart that you wouldn't figure out some way to come back. It felt like a thousand lifetimes, and I would happily do it again, as long as I knew you were coming back to me."

    A canon story with slight divergences to accommodate my vision for this story.
    Follows through Mass Effect 2 and 3 with all DLC.

    Summary

    Shepard has just been told she needs to face the music sometime - especially after she nukes an entire Batarian system. She has to contend not only with her own personal feelings but also with the fact that she's going to be grounded while under the inevitable threat of the Reaper invasion. Her and Garrus are forced to part ways, and it's much more painful than she expects it to be. She doesn't want to admit it, but she would give anything to see him one more time.

    As the Quarians say, "Through tides of light and shoals of dust, I will return to where I began. Keelah Se'lai."

    She just hoped that maybe, one day, fate would bring them back together again.

    NOTE, for new/returning readers: Some of the earlier chapters of this fic are going to be rewritten in the coming days. No content will be lost - anything I remove will be uploaded separately - but I just wanted to place an announcement here in case people wonder where a particular story beat went, etc.
