    Summary

    Hawke has returned from the Deep Roads after escaping Ferelden and its Blight, having gained a large fortune, but lost her sister, Bethany, in the process to Kirkwall's Circle and later her mother, Leandra, to a serial killer. She is forced to attempt to keep the peace between the Arishok and the Viscount of Kirkwall, and between the very tense Mages and Templars.

    As part of the Lazarus Project, Commander Shepard was rebuilt by Cerberus after sacrificing herself for her squad after their ship was targeted by an unknown vessel, and has been given the task of investigating the mysterious Collectors who work for the Reapers, threatening the galaxy's safety. She has constructed a crew of new and old members, and must travel through the Omega-4 Relay, from which no one has ever returned.

    Both Hawke and Shepard have their destinies planned out for them. Hawke is on track to become the Champion of Kirkwall, Shepard on her way to making another dent in the Reaper's plans of galaxy-wide destruction... But one day, the pair in their respective universes come across strange artefacts that do not belong to either of their worlds. A link connects them, and they are pulled from their lives and into the other's.

    Summary

    None of this was the plan. Not the last night of shore leave with the handsome stranger. Not the covert mission to Eden Prime with a shakedown crew. Not a Prothean beacon.

    And definitely not everything that came after...
     

     

    A Nihlus Kryik fix-it, because we were robbed at gunpoint (literally). Beta'd by the lovely Iron_Angel.

    Summary

    Tali supports the turian’s weight as Shepard moves forward, but she can’t hear what she’s saying through the noise — her focus is on Garrus, the blue and silver of his armor charred black and smoking, red spots where the metal is melted and still burning from the proximity to the explosion. It takes all of her willpower to ignore the pain of her own burns and keep him from surging forward to follow Shepard back into the fire.

    Summary

    Commander Veronika Shepard, Hero of the Blitz and Sole Survivor of Akuze, is candidate to be the first human Spectre. The mission that brings her spectre status ends up being larger than humanity. She has a loyal crew to help her succeed, and finds not only camaraderie, but also love. Her relationship with her fellow marine Kaidan Alenko is put through a severe test, fraternization regulations being only one problem they face. Strays slightly from canon. Rated M for later chapters.

    Summary

    Given the fact that he and his friends are psychic teenagers who can summon manifestations of the soul, and the fact that the year of 2011 was spent solving an unsolvable murder mystery while simultaneously scoring a seriously cute girlfriend, Minoru Sakamoto and the Investigation Team's lives have been nothing short of bizarre. He genuinely, truly thought that with all the supernatural madness becoming such a daily staple of his life, it couldn't possibly get weirder.

    So yeah, of course he was wrong. He shouldn't have agreed alongside his seven friends and his petite, musician girlfriend to partake in an experimental cryogenic experiment that could go wrong even for the one hour you're supposed to have been in stasis for. Even if he was paid with a free tuition like the rest of his friends, all he has to show for it now is being booted 172 years into the future to be recruited into a classified military outfit that has like-minded Persona users in a galaxy-spanning empire.

    Seriously, this is the limit of weirdness possible. It can't get weirder than this, right?

    ...right?

    Summary

    In the year 2148, explorers on Mars discovered the remains of an ancient spacefaring civilization. In the decades that followed, these mysterious artifacts revealed startling new technologies, enabling travel to the furthest stars.

    They called it the greatest discovery in human history.

    The civilizations of the galaxy call it Mass Effect.

    The year is 2167. Two human teenagers are sat on a ship, looking out in awe at the beautiful stars and galaxies it contains.

    The boy grabs the girl’s hand, holding on tightly.

    “No matter what, no matter how far away we are from each other, I’ll always find you.”

    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

    Shepard never asked to be a Spectre or a diplomat. But if that's the best way to protect humanity, she'll do her duty.
    She certainly didn't sign up for celebrity. But if her celebrity duties are listening to flattery and cuddling baby turians, that's easy. Adult turians are terrifying - who'd have thought the babies were so tiny and adorable?
    Kid, please stop hiding in my cleavage. Please go back to your daddy. Or I’ll have to undress in public to return you. Please?

    Summary

    When the Battlestar Galactica makes their desperate jump towards Earth, lead by Kara Thrace and four of the Final Five Cylons, they don't find the Earth they expect. They find an Earth encircled by giant black ships and a woman calling herself Commander Shepard telling them to leave before the Reapers attack them. With Earth not the safe haven they'd hoped for, a multi-species conflict raging around them, and the enemy Cylons still a threat, the Colonial Fleet and their Cylon allies struggle to make a place for themselves in this new universe.
