    Summary

    Shepard's built a career on the impossible, but there's no way she could come back from the dead again. Kaidan isn't so sure. Is it grief or faith making him so unwilling to let go? He's got a job to do to help rebuild, and he can use that to find her...dead or alive.

    [Paragon sole survivor/spacer Shepard, Destroy ending. I may add more characters later. Grief can make you question yourself in some difficult ways - folks with personal experience, this may get triggering for you, hard to say for sure while I'm writing this. I've been dealing with a lot the past two years. I like using this part of the quarian passphrase to the Flotilla as my title. It's hopeful.]

    Summary

    Shepard is increasingly hurt and frustrated by Liara being distant after the fall of Thessia. She goes after Kai Leng without Liara, and ends up getting injured. Their feelings come to a head in the aftermath. Initial angst but very emotional and smutty resolution. Includes telepathic bond/meld.

    My Shepard's first name is Astraea, and she's an Adept, mostly Paragon, Earthborn, Sole survivor. There will be 3 chapters, and it very possibly could become the prologue to a post-destroy ending reunion fic someday down the road if this goes well.

    My BFF finally got me to play Mass Effect when MELE came out, and I've been a hopeless flailing nutcase over it ever since. (Thanks for continuing to be my biggest cheerleader and instigator, A 😂. Love you❤️)

    Summary

    A newly promoted Commander Shepard is ready to prove herself to Alliance Brass and is waiting for her first command. Little does she know her proving ground isn’t a walk in the park like everyone expected, but rather the kind of hell few survive and even fewer remain sane enough to tell their tale. Swearing to conquer this cursed world and come back stronger she becomes the sole survivor the galaxy needs as their time of need draws closer. You can take Shepard out of Akuze but you can’t take Akuze out of Shepard.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard made the hard decision to leave the Alliance military. This story explores what her life looks like without the Alliance and her journey to healing. She meets Garrus Vakarian during this time and these two immediately connect with one another. From both Garrus and Shepard POVs.

    This series is in a world where Reapers don’t exist. I wanted to focus on making Shepard more human with insecurities and doubts. I didn’t want to imagine this story in a world where she’s constantly having the galaxy on the weight of her shoulders. The trilogy made her focus on completing the impossible, over and over again.

    Smut starts at chapter 3!

    Summary

    Shepard and Kaidan's relationship has always been an inevitability, especially to their friends and co-workers who have spent days, months and even years watching those two tip-toe around their feelings for each other, feelings that seem obvious to everyone except for them. They are their own people, however, and those around them can do nothing but hope and subtly push them together, watching and waiting as they form a bond that stands in the face of everything that has come before them and everything that will soon arrive.

    Or,

    An examination of Shepard and Kaidan's evolving relationship through the eyes of those closest to them, and eventually, through the eyes of the two men themselves.

    Summary

    The Omega Four Relay is the one Relay no known Citadel species ship has passed through and returned safely. For most of recorded history, it has been simply chalked up as another one of the universe's grand mysteries that sentient life may never unravel.

As she soon finds out, the galaxy outside the Flotilla is a great but often dangerous place.

    Summary

    Immediately post-ME3, Paragon FemShep Control ending, Garrus-centric. The Reapers have vanished, but exact effects of the Crucible remain unknown and the relays have been shattered. A fractured galaxy is left in chaos and disarray, and Harasha Prime - the Council's foremost fuel center and refugee camp - is out of supplies, out of manpower and almost out of time. Solana Vakarian struggles to keep the mining planet from sinking to chaos, but every surviving fleet in the galaxy starves for Harasha's precious fuel - and many of them are prepared to take it by force.

    Garrus has lost Shepherd a second time. After the Council asks him to become a Specter and pick up the pieces she left behind, he repeats history and vanishes amongst the lost and the lawless. Harasha Prime isn't where he pictured a family reunion, but his problems always did look more clear through the scope of a rifle. Her ghost consumes him no matter how far he runs, and sometimes, he thinks being Archangel is safer than being Garrus Vakarian.

    Summary

    “I used to,” Alenko says, voice trailing off as he stares after the Commander. James furrows his brows. He sounds almost—wistful? Longing? What the hell.

    “...Uh. Right. Cool,” James says with a nod, like he isn’t silently wondering what in the world that’s supposed to even mean.

    *

    or: it doesn’t take long for James to realize something about the great and untouchable Commander Shepard.

    This story is about a character that was only a child when the Reapers first attacked Earth. She survives and I wanted tell her tale as she tries to live with life after the war. This is her growing up with Turians.
    I do not own all the characters or the world. The world and some characters are owned by Bioware and unfortunately Electronic Arts.
