    Summary

    An engineer, who ran into a thresher maw at the wrong place at the wrong time, is promoted to commander and pushed forward as a specter candidate against his will. He is neither saint nor sinner- he’s Travis Shepard, the IT guy with a gun. Can he change the tides of fate?

    Earther/Sole Survivor/Very Tired

    In this universe, persuasiveness is separated from the paragon/renegade system and characters’ classes effect how they interact with the world to make them more nuanced. NPCs also get more agency within combat and the story itself. Shepard’s tactics are inspired by the Muderbot Diaries by Martha Wells. This is my first fan fiction I’ve decided to post. Enjoy!

    Summary

    Faith Shepard had always been the goofier and more laid back of the Shepard twins. So when Saren Arterius shows up, seemingly from nowhere, ostensibly to train the young Ensign, nobody knows just what to expect.

    Meet me
    Where the end begins,
    In echoes,
    Where your world is me,
    And my world is you.

    Summary

    Council Spectre Saren Arterius is no fan of humans. He is especially not a fan of being saved by one. And he most definitely is not a fan of having to work with the human who saved his hide. What the human thinks of it? Saren doesn't care. By the looks of it the human probably doesn't either, but they have a common goal, and they're both professionals. Most of the time anyway. For as long as it lasts. Which may or may not be all that long. Takes place a handful of years before ME1, I think. Title may yet change.

    Summary

    Sîeran gets a chance of a second life. He finds himself back to the time when he was born and starts again as Garrus Vakarian, while keeping all his memories of his previous life. So he should be able to somehow pull it off easily right? Probably not...

    Summary

    None of this was the plan. Not the last night of shore leave with the handsome stranger. Not the covert mission to Eden Prime with a shakedown crew. Not a Prothean beacon.

    And definitely not everything that came after...
     

     

    A Nihlus Kryik fix-it, because we were robbed at gunpoint (literally). Beta'd by the lovely Iron_Angel.

    Summary

    Soulmarks are ever changing. They always have been, and they always will be. No one knows why they appeared, or even when, just that they merely are. The little marks can be anything, from a picture, to a symbol, to a word, or even a phrase; but no matter what, it will always symbolize the being they belong to. And that is the challenge. Soulmarks belong to anyone, and everyone. Some are platonic, some are romantic, some are a bond of brotherhood. They change, too, shifting in and out as time passes by.

    But the one thing that remains, is always constant, is the fact that you will only have a mark if you will meet that person. If you never meet someone, you will never bear their mark on your skin. It has always been as simple as that. Those that are born before you will not bear your mark until your own birth.

    Death is another constant. Upon the end of the other half of the bond, the mark will shatter, removing itself from the owner's skin. It's painless, and some never even realize a mark is gone; for it has long since been replaced by another one.

    Life is fleeting, and soulmarks even more so.

    Summary

    Nihlus Kryik has been training with Saren Arterius just long enough for two unexpected things to happen: One, he's discovered that Saren's still waters run impossibly deep. The ST&R agent is every bit as unique and interesting as he appeared at first glance. Two, the laconic Spectre has a personal space bubble a meter wide.... but Nihlus has always had trouble respecting boundaries.

    For once, it might not be a bad thing.

    Summary

    The black market organ dealer Saleon wasn't 'the case Garrus' couldn't let go'. He solved it, in fact; but Garrus never would have seen where solving it took him.

    It was a move that caught the attention of people who played with higher stakes. Being a Spectre was what Garrus had dreamed of growing up. The reality very well may chew him up and spit him out instead.

    Approaching the Council after Eden Prime, Shepard is told that 'The Council is already investigating into Saren.' Talk is cheap, though, so she goes out of her way to find the one running the investigation herself: Council Spectre Garrus Vakarian.

    Summary

    We're finally getting to the ingame content (specifically Mass Effect 1), although this is still not 100% sticking to the canon, because I'm annoying like that.

    Recommended for the N7 programme, Major Jane Shepard has a lot to prove. And even more to prove when she gets put in charge of investigating the disappearance of an important prothean beacon. All whilst her boy trouble continues to make life difficult for her.

    Book three in the Jane Shepard's War Memoire series

    Summary

    Historical fiction AU: When the maiden voyage of the 'HMS Normandy', is waylaid by a terrible storm, Commander Shepard discovers something far worse than pirates which threatens the seas and life itself. Now she must find a way to convince the world of an ancient terror and stop it before it wakes from it's house at R'lyeh.

    This is what happens when one of your friends says "Mass Effect", another says "Pirates", and you say "Cthulhu". And it's gotten very out of hand. Come for the naval aesthetic, stay for the romance cut with eldritch horror.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian in canon seemed personally enraged about Saren's actions on Eden Prime. A colony slaughtered. A Spectre dead. Geth, everywhere. He dropped everything he had going in life to see justice done when an opportunity presented itself. That's not precisely normal, not unless the losses and betrayals were personal.

    Maybe they were.

    Begins the tale of Mass Effect just a little early, starting in 2167, T-16 years until Eden Prime. A story of talented people who are neurodivergent, alien, champions of their struggles, and sometimes a little strange.

    Featuring: Caffeine addictions. Everyday life as a Spectre. Unconventional interrogations. Boring council meetings. Old frenemies. Ancient artifacts. Life after death. The people behind the legends. Bullets. Many, many bullets...
