    Summary

    Commander Shepard's live got turned upside down in one afternoon. Moira Shepard might be the first human Specter, the hero of Elysium and truly the Vangard of Victory, but she's also human.

    This is her story.

    There are changes, friendships that are there in the beginning that are fleshed out and such. I do try to keep it to canon, but obviously... there are just too many good ideas to just... leave it completely canon!

    Summary

    Tumblr Prompt: Let Me Fix Your Hair

    Commander Shepard very rarely gets to take breaks. On the off chance that she and Garrus get an opportunity for a date night, she decides to go all out. After all, they're going to see the best view on the Citadel, so why not take the chance to look nice...and see how Garrus cleans up.

    Because tonight they're just Ryn and Garrus: civilians. And she's going to act like it.

    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

    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

    AU in which, after the events of the War Hero background, Femshep never becomes Commander Shepard.

    Jane Shepard, recipient of the Star of Terra and recognized war hero, has retired from military service and returned to civilian life. She decided to take a chance and follow a small dream she’s had since she was little: owning a small, personal shop. She didn’t particularly want to run a cafe, but it was being sold for cheap and she felt she could make it work, so she went for it.

    Months later, she was teetering somewhere between comfort and boredom, frequently falling into daydreams of what her life could have been had she accepted the Commission the Alliance offered her after her heroics. Something deep in her wanted to return to the exciting life of guns and glory, to being the hero, but she squashed those thoughts, forcing herself to be content with the memories. She couldn’t help but hope for something to happen though, something that would shake up her routined, boring days and replace them with something interesting.

    Luckily for her, Tali happened to find her shop during her brief visit to the Citadel.
