    Summary

    John is just a soldier. Its all he's ever known. Go here, shoot the bad guys, go there and shoot the bad guys, and repeat. Occasionally push a button or two to mix it up. But after Eden Prime, his whole life suddenly changes and now the galaxy looks to him to have all the answers. To be the hero. Well thats some shoddy luck on the galaxy's part; it gets to have a front row seat to John making it up as he goes. At least he has a good crew of professionals to help him...they're all as crazy as he is, aren't they? Yup. The world is doomed.

    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. Finding each other was just a matter of time.

    Summary

    "I would like to be the air
    that inhabits you for a moment
    only. I would like to be that unnoticed
    & that necessary."
    - Margaret Atwood, "Variation on the Word Sleep"

    The galaxy is forever changed after Commander Jane Shepard destroyed the Reapers. But it isn't just the galaxy that was changed: its inhabitants were too, some for better, others for worse. Most people don't know what happened to the commander, not even her boyfriend, Major Kaidan Alenko. What he does know is this: no matter how far away the two of them are, the two of them will rebuild their lives together.

    Summary

    I’ve finally gotten around to editing some really old stories I’ve had for Mass Effect and since they’re all kinda short, I’m gonna put them into a oneshot collection here.

    Enjoy, though you may be able to tell which ones are the older ones compared to the new ones...

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Following the destruction of the Reapers, life has slowly started going back to normal in the Milky Way. The geth and quarians are making peace, the krogans are thriving, the asari, humans and turians are rebuilding, and the salarians are carrying on as they always do.

    But for one redheaded human biotic and one scarred turian sniper, things haven't gone back to normal quite yet. Jane Austen Shepard wakes up from her months-long coma following the Crucible's detonation, with her boyfriend, Garrus Vakarian, ready to help her on the bumpy road to recovery.

    Summary

    When childhood friends Silvia Shepard and Jeff "Joker" Moreau reunite after almost twenty years worth of extranet letters and video calls, life and its wonders (also known as the Geth and the ever-so-enigmatic Reaper war threat) just naturally get in the way. Each hectic mission and even more odder nightmare-dreamish beacon visions bring them closer together, with unresolved feelings only deepening and becoming more than platonic along the way.

    But Joker knows the Alliance and their rules about fraternization. Should they choose to put their hearts above duty and act on those feelings publicly, they could risk getting both being demoted and transferred to other vessels.

    But...should they both not get caught…

    They might just get away with it.
