    Summary

    Commander Jane Shepard is not interested in a relationship - especially not right in the middle of a galactic war. She was never the settling-down type to begin with, and she enjoys her friends-with-benefits relationship with Garrus the way it is... right up until her test results come back with the fact that she's pregnant, and she realizes the child has to be his. Unsure what to do about the possibility of an unplanned human-turian child, Shepard decides to keep her pregnancy a secret from Garrus and the Alliance... but how long can a secret like that stay hidden? And what happens when it becomes too difficult to hide?

    Summary

    Since my 'Drabbles' section was getting exceedingly more difficult to manage, I decided to split them up by OC groups and repost them here for easier reading- please bear with me if you've read some of these before.

    These are centering around my OCs Jane and Kieran after the events of First Seeds, and more precisely about the six months Kieran stayed with Jane on Kaua'i in 2164 before having to return to the Citadel.

    Summary

    A couple of years after the First Contact War.
    Jane is a young woman stuck in a boring job doing security work on one of Earth's orbital terminals. Her uneventful life gets a sudden jolt when, against her will, she is chosen as attendant for a very special event: The first turian envoy to Earth.

    She is paired with Kieran, a turian in his last years of active service but with no aspirations of continuing a military career, on a two week exchange program to make him acquainted to life on Earth.
    After the initial awkwardness of living together, Jane and Kieran find out that they're not as different as they originally thought, and start developing feelings for each other.

    But nothing‘s that easy, and the simple exchange turns into something far more complicated that will change them both permanently...

    Summary

    He wasn't built for hope. Turians didn't have much use for the blind optimism of the desperate and the foolish when confidence and good-old-fashioned fatalism would serve just as well without all the fanfare. Hope was a left-handed turn when he was made of rights. But Shepard put it there, grafted it into him like new flesh and now he was an amalgam of her hope and his worn-out despair, asking all her impossible questions as the universe teeters on the brink of a new war.
