    Summary

    The abduction of the Commander was nothing short of a death blow to any chance that Humanity could repel ADVENT from Earth. It was like the flame that kept the Human Resistance ablaze had been snuffed out.

    John Bradford took the failure of XCOM and the cause for what came to be called Unification Day completely on his shoulders, promising that if he ever again found her, that he would never allow any harm to come to the Commander. After he rescues her from a sarcophagus, the man who waited two decades for his mentor is now faced with an impossible chance—and forces the Commander to question if she is willing to risk the fragile future of the Initiative for a gamble at a happiness she never believed to be possible.

    Summary

    It was a new world Jynn found herself waking up to, so much had changed within those 20 years of experimentation and imprisonment in that suit. She was thankful to be free of that hell but hesitant to take on the roll she found herself thrusted back into. Commander of XCOM, a mere memory of what it once was. They had a lot on their plate, build up the resistance, sabotage ADVENT and the aliens, and take back the Earth from the Elders.
    It was no help that the Elders wanted her back badly. Hunting them down like a pack of wild dogs, undermining their cause at every turn. And then those Chosen, another layer of annoyance XCOM and the Resistance had to deal with. Just how integral was she their to their Psionic Network? Was there something more?

    Summary

    Hawke. Tethras. The two names were practically synonymous with each other from day one. Business partners. Companions. Best Friends. Those who knew them always said that, in another life, the two could’ve been more than that, maybe even Soulmates. They had no idea how right they were. In another life, practically a universe away through Space and Time, these two souls find each other again when their home is invaded by aliens. The names are different, but the souls are the same and it’s business as usual: fighting to survive and protect what they care about. Maybe this time he won’t let her slip away from him.

    aka

    Years after the defeat of Corypheus, thus years after Ariane Hawke sacrifices herself to save the Inquisitor and Stroud, Varric dies in his sleep due to Bianca poisoning him out of bitter mercy. He and Hawke, along with a number of other notable figures, are reborn, and life is practically mundane what with the lack of magic and dragons. And then the Elders invade and ADVENT seizes the world. Fate brings them all together under the call of the Resistance, under the banner of XCOM. Fighting to save their world? Sounds like a Tuesday, just minus the abominations, blood mages, red templars, and Darkspawn.

    Summary

    There are two (and only two) possibilities: either she led XCOM to victory and they are now engaged in a clean up operation of alien forces, or XCOM was overrun, clearing the way for an alien-controlled puppet government to seize control of the planet.

    She’d really like to figure out which it is, but asking hardly seems the prudent option.

    Summary

    A home is a people and a place. For Lily Shen and the Commander, where is home, when home is divided by an ocean and an alien dictatorship?

    (Stories from the Avenger and the Commander of The Sum of Our Sin(x) , because Lily can't be everywhere and does not want to be everywhere in that pandemonium.)

    Summary

    The Chosen know when you're save-scumming, Commander. The Chosen see you when you're loading, and they're not impressed.

    A sort of sequel to "From Commander to Legendary" using the "War of the Chosen" DLC, but with enough crack to make Narcos run for its money.

    Summary

    He thinks for a moment that perhaps the Commander isn't infallible, that she's just as broken as the rest of them. The thought scares him as he's not sure that two broken people can put each other back together again.
