    Summary

    Omega was her home now: the perfect hideout for the runaway Lieutenant Murphy; a place where the Alliance would never dare to crawl into. Even so, anonymity was a must, especially when she worked shoulder to shoulder with the ruler of that scum place, Aria T'Loak, to eliminate her adversaries: people of the worst kind you could find. But getting rid of the bad guys that flooded the city was not just her task: a vigilante known as Archangel and his group fought for the common good in Omega city, too. Crossing paths was just a matter of time.

    Summary

    Shepard had spent her life running from the past. Always moving forward, never looking back. But after waking up on a slab of metal in a Cerberus facility, her past is all she has to ground herself in a sea of insanity, uncovering horrors even Cerberus renounced. With so many knives aimed at her back, at least she had a sniper covering her 6.

    Summary

    I'm sick and bed-ridden and decided to write this short little blurb. My take on Garrus and Shep's first conversation once they reach the Normandy. There's no way those dumdums would not stop for a conversation before meeting in the gun batteries. I'm drugged up on cough medicine and I've done little to no proof reading or editing. I hope I added enough ANGST.

    Summary

    Shepard never asked to be a Spectre or a diplomat. But if that's the best way to protect humanity, she'll do her duty.
    She certainly didn't sign up for celebrity. But if her celebrity duties are listening to flattery and cuddling baby turians, that's easy. Adult turians are terrifying - who'd have thought the babies were so tiny and adorable?
    Kid, please stop hiding in my cleavage. Please go back to your daddy. Or I’ll have to undress in public to return you. Please?

    Summary

    Survivance of the decimated Earth population was a priority for the Planet Alliance at the Citadel but not an easy task considering the circumstances. Decisions had to be taken by the military brass, always looking for the common good. Decisions that not always benefit individuals. She was no more than an Alliance slave and it had begun to break her. A rotten but valuable apple in the N7 that they all had contributed to create. A collateral damage from the geth attack. A product of a war.

    Summary

    To most, Andrew Shepard is a ruthless hardass. He’s sarcastic, has no regard for other people, and had a stature he used to intimidate everyone around him. If you asked the crew of the Normandy they would give you a completely different answer. At one point they may have given you the same answer as anyone else,now they know better.

    Summary

    How a orphan from the slums of earth came from nothing to become a defender of everything. Logan John Shepard rose from the slums of Earth and became the First human Spectre. Will follow his time before the Alliance and maybe a bit afterwards

    Just because someone is a good guy does not mean they are a nice guy. Cold, calculating and brutal. Logan follows his own code which is "The punishment must fit the crime". The only question is the galaxy ready for a human Spectre with his own form of brutal justice?

    Later tags to be added, I don't want to give too much away. If you are after Pure smut look elsewhere, while this does have sex scenes in it, it is not the main basis of the story. The rating is what it is as I don't want to get into trouble for some of the war scenes
