    Summary

    She sees it every time she visits the crew deck of the Normandy SR-2. It's hard not to, honestly, since it's right in front of you when you exit the elevator. But that alone isn't sufficient for it all to really settle in, until she receives a package.

    Summary

    “Nobody knows why we got these,” Kezk shrugs when Aubine asks about the words painted over her armored hump, “Some people say they’re reminders of people that affected the course of our lives. Some people say they’re soulmates or some other bullshit like that.”
    “What do you say?”
    Kezk laughs and slaps her tiny shoulder. “I say that if you ever want to charge like a krogan, you’ve got to get a handle on those biotics first.”

    Aubine Shepard has more words on her than anyone probably should. She has dozens of 'thank yous,' several sets of words from those she's fought and come out the only one standing, and a set of sapphire on her arm she uncovers when she needs to. She's a war hero, one of the most famous Alliance operatives at this point, so she supposes it's a little expected.
    The Reaper is not.
    (Or: a soulmate mark subversion that follows Shepard through the trilogy, looking at the consequences of the trope. Like words from a Reaper.)

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the Weeping Heart cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; confident it was only the beginning.

    Summary

    Shepard and Vakarian have been partners for three years, and are labeled Homicide's best team, which gets them the worst cases. When a quarian is left for dead they have to hunt down two turians capable of committing the most horrific crime. They'll find that their friendship isn't just laughter and late nights watching vids — it's finding someone who will hold your hand through the darkest of times.

    Or, in other words, this is the story of two very smart detectives acting like idiots as they slowly fall in love.

    Summary

    Lt. Commander Shepard, the White Death of Elysium and borderline pariah, is named commander of the Fifth Fleet's newest frigate, the SSV Normandy. Her task? The sort of thankless, redaction-heavy missions N7s train for, on call to do cleanup whenever and wherever Admiral Hackett says go. Along the way she forms an unlikely band of misfits into a highly effective army, and discovers just how thin and flimsy the galaxy's veneers of normalcy truly are. (An AU/"Reaper-free" TV-Show-format series. Cross-posted on FFdotNet)

    Summary

    When they had jokingly stumbled their way into Shepard suggesting sex, Garrus had been rendered incoherent. He’d agreed too readily to be anything less than eager and was embarrassed he was nearly reduced to a fledgling recruit in front of his commander. It had barely even crossed his mind that maybe it would make the coming weeks awkward or tense.
