    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

    His ex-wife always said he had a savior complex.

             The boy instantly rolls and leaps up, knife in his hand before combat boots which have seen better days touch the slippery ground. He assumes a fighting stance, legs braced, and glares at David from between the fists protecting his head.

             The kid’s a damned powerful biotic, and likely doesn’t even have an implant yet. A true diamond in the rough. David grins like a kid on Christmas morning, practically giddy.

           “You could be better,” he muses, almost to himself. Then, shouting above the rain, “I’ve got a different proposition for you!”

    Summary

    He looked down at Shepard, who was tired but happy. There was a glimmer on her cheeks, highlighted by the ambient violet of the sky above. She was warm in his arms. He must be the luckiest man in the galaxy if it meant that he could hold her like this.

    “I'll never get over how beautiful this is,” Shepard sighed.

    She was talking about the Citadel, he knew that. An emotion lodged in his throat that he wasn’t sure he could say out loud yet. The emotion that always fluttered and festered when it came to her. How she was the one person he always had on his mind, since they were both seventeen and musing about travelling through the stars outside Arcturus.

    “Me either,” Joker said softly, and it was no lie.

    But he wasn't looking at the Citadel.

    Summary

    "He gave me a knife and dagger, saying to me 'These are appropriate ornaments for you'."


    Their attempt at a desert vacation on Rakhana goes awry when mercenaries intervene with rifles. Absolutely typical, thinks Shepard, shaking the sand out of her Eviscerator, and immediately heads back out with a squad to confront their leader.

    But this is no opportunistic ambush, and for once they are not after her. The trail leads Shepard and her remaining crew in a chase across two planets, a freighter and a mining station, across desert sands and oceans, disguises and betrayals and escapes, firefights and sword fights (and the first Normandy Cheat Championship), and ends in the most unexpected place of all...

    But whatever they do, however hard they fight, the sand will run onward. Perhaps the only enemy Shepard cannot truly face is time itself.

    Summary

    When Asher Shepard chose to let the asteroid collide with the Bahak system's mass relay and wipe out over 300,000 batarians, she knew she was making the right choice; she couldn't let the Reapers into the galaxy that easily. She also knew the decision would weigh heavily on her conscience for the rest of her days, and that she'd have to face the consequences.

    On the trip back to Earth, an Alliance lieutenant is assigned to guard her while she's imprisoned. Separated from her ship, her crew, her friends, Asher feels, for the first time, unsteady, but even so, she never would have expected James Vega to be the kind of person to steady her.

    Summary

    For your reading pleasure, a Modern Girl in a Mass Effect World fic including an astrophysicist PhD candidate obsessed with an anomaly on Mars scans that lands smack dab in the middle of Saren's plans and very nearly on the turian himself.

    Will her research on dark matter and forgotten Mars ruins help Jane Shepherd save the galaxy or will they lock her up for knowing too much about classified information? The turian Spectre that saw potential in one human will see it in another, although for a different sort of mission entirely.

    Chapter 16 includes explicit scenes. The rest is T or M, I try to include TW in chapters where they're relevant.

    (Background ships will sail eventually.)

    Summary

    This saga takes place about 10 years after the Ryder saga. New heroes, new enemies are coming. The quarian ark has made it to Andromeda an brought hanar, drell, volus and quarians with into the galaxy. Furthermore there is a slight merge between Mass Effect and Shadowrun. You will recoginze familiar shadowrun classes and terms.

    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

    “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.)
