    Summary

    Tali'Zorah was just looking for a worthy pilgrimage gift, but is sucked into the adventure of her liftime instead. At the helm: Commander Shepard, greatest hero of the Alliance. But with a life of violence and loss behind him and the weight of the galaxy on his shoulders, Tali soon finds that perhaps John Shepard needs her just as much as she needs him...

    Violence, Language. Written mostly from Tali's and Shepard's POV, but everyone on the squad (including Joker) gets to be POV at least once. Even Kaidan.

    Summary

    Liara lived a long life before Shepard, and is handling her life without her about as well as you'd expect. That is, however, until everyone's favourite terrorist agent shows up at her front door with a proposition.

    AKA; I didn't like how the synthesis ending was sad for my girl Liara so I am gonna undermine it a little for my own self interests :)

    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 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; from the way his onyx eyes followed the movement, she was confident it was only the beginning.

    *A major re-working/updating of a story I originally wrote between 2014 - 2017*

    Summary

    Thanks to the peace achieved between Tali and Legion on the Normandy, the quarians and geth are ready to talk for the first time in three hundred years. Neither side trusts the other, but if there's anyone they trust less it's the Council. To ensure impartiality and prevent outside interference, the human System Alliance agrees to mediate in secret.

    After defeating the Collectors at the center of the galaxy, the crew of the Normandy prepares to stand down for repairs while Commander Shepard goes to the Citadel with proof of the impending Reaper invasion. But word of the peace negotiations is leaked and the entire geth collective goes silent. Humanity's fragile relationship with the Council is shattered. And now Commander Shepard must find a way to unite them all before the reapers return to wipe out civilization as they all know it.

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the sometimes-Paragon, biotic misfit heroine of The Null Room finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    this might go without saying, but the state of Shepard's and Vega's relationship (not to mention the politics of the Normandy, etc) won't make a heck of a lot of sense if you haven't read The Null Room. there's also a decent amount of Shepard/Alenko angst, lingering in the background like swamp gas about to erupt at any moment, that won't potentially make a great deal of sense either.

    chapter count subject to change. void where prohibited. please avoid operating large machinery when reading this fic.

    Summary

    Where a hero finds life in his lungs and love in his arms because it's what they deserve.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.

    Summary

    The Normandy Crew reports for duty one last time. Some sooner than others, others for not a long while yet. Commander Shepard greets them all with a cheeky smile and a special kind of "Welcome aboard" for each of them.

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

In the months following the end of the war, he and the crew of the Normandy grapple with the fallout of the decisions he made to bring salvation to the galaxy even as they navigate their new realities. Kaidan Alenko, his longtime friend and now devoted partner, has the impossible task of putting Shepard back together as the rest of the galaxy asks what he'll do next.

    Summary

    It's the smaller stories, Doctor...the ones so often unrecorded, that are the most important. The deeds of heroes are nothing without the remembrance of private moments, what shaped them. I would not have mine go untold. And I can think of none better to share them with...than you. -
    A retelling of ME1 through the eyes of Liara T'Soni only, as wrapped in a story set centuries after the Reaper War's beginning.

    Summary

    The grown daughter of Amra Amell, twin sister of the Hero Of Ferelden, was thought to be in hiding after the fall of Ferelden's circle, Kinloch Hold. In fact, she had been transported to Mindoir, and has lived with her husband and daughter there until her death from the taint in 2184.

    Now her daughter, Grace, has been brought back just before the Conclave, landing in Amaranthine near her Uncle's Command, Vigil's Keep. How will she explain everything so these primitive people can understand that she only knows about Thedas from her mom's stories?

    Summary

    Summary

    Shepard has just been told she needs to face the music sometime - especially after she nukes an entire Batarian system. She has to contend not only with her own personal feelings but also with the fact that she's going to be grounded while under the inevitable threat of the Reaper invasion. Her and Garrus are forced to part ways, and it's much more painful than she expects it to be. She doesn't want to admit it, but she would give anything to see him one more time.

    As the Quarians say, "Through tides of light and shoals of dust, I will return to where I began. Keelah Se'lai."

    She just hoped that maybe, one day, fate would bring them back together again.

    NOTE, for new/returning readers: Some of the earlier chapters of this fic are going to be rewritten in the coming days. No content will be lost - anything I remove will be uploaded separately - but I just wanted to place an announcement here in case people wonder where a particular story beat went, etc.
