    Summary

    Its been three years after humanity's brief conflict with the turians. The governments from both parties are ready to move on, but its people aren't.
    One of those is a young, disgruntled, hot-headed veteran by the name of Walter Reilly, who is forced to serve alongside the same species that killed his friends and disfigured his face. Even with the warm welcome from the once hostile race, and a female turian keen on being his best friend, Walter has trouble putting the past to rest, which is exactly what some people want.

    Will he learn to adapt and coexist with his former enemies? Or will he finally turn into the wrathful monster everyone already thinks he is?

    Summary

    She knows she’s the wildcard in their hands. They wanted her father, because even head-strong and with his own agenda, at least her father was familiar territory. They don’t know what to make of the messy, dirty and prickly young woman that is now the human Pathfinder, their only Pathfinder. She didn’t expect them to tell her the truth, but it annoys her even more to get fake information promised to solve all of her problems.

    An AU in which Jane Shepard, former Hero of the Skyllian Blitz, is forced into the life of piracy. Taking on the alias of "Archangel" she flies around the galaxy on a stolen ship with a ragtag crew of dumbasses and annoys the living hell out of mercenary gangs, slavers and a certain Major Garrus Vakarian who is tasked to hunt her down. And when the circumstances force them to work together, things go out of control very quickly.

When Shepard wakes on the Hyperion from cryo sleep, she finds herself against her will on the other side of the 600 year journey lost, alone, and angry.

    Summary

    Wherein: Sara Ryder was awoken second, Pathfinder Scott Ryder found Meridian, and the story has just begun.
    .
    .
    .
    An unabashed and unashamed self-insert storytelling of Sara's alternate fate as the Pathfinder's companion. This piece was made with the intent of exploring what Andromeda may offer story-wise if it was continued. Please expect plotholes.

    This piece will also have an overpowered Sara as the writer is currently operating with the assumption that this Sara Ryder has journeyed with a Renegade Shepard in ME1 and ME2 and thus has used her future knowledge to cheat the system to her favour. However, the writer also admits—like so in the story of "Pathfinder Ryder"—that she just wants to sometimes write (and practice) badass combat sequences, and Sara is an outlet for that.

    May you enjoy the story.

    Summary

    Lured into a life of excitement, crime, and excess, Lydia Ryder has been leading a double life- not entirely by choice.

    After years of manipulation, training, genetic tinkering, and abuse, she's been made second in command of a gang of pirates. Her father believes she's been dutifully studying in University and training with the Alliance reserves. In reality, she's trapped. The woman who demands she call her 'Mother' keeps her collared with threats to her real family's lives.

    Andromeda is a chance for freedom.

    Setting up her erstwhile mother for a fall, she escapes onto the Hyperion and leaves that life behind. Except...why should she? A whole new galaxy- why shouldn't she seize the chance to use all her hard-won skills? Why should she have to change who she is just because people don't approve?

    Unfortunately when she finally arrives in her new life, it turns out she's not the only one with a mind to make Andromeda's underbelly theirs. Her crew smuggled onto the Nexus are scattered, and now she's Pathfinder- a pretty good front. All she has to do is find her people, get established, and get rid of the competition.

    Too bad the competition's so damn charming.

    Summary

    “Do you remember? All these trials and errors?” she asks him, because she knows he sees what she does, he feels it too. “Or am I actually insane?”

    OR the Time Loop AU that no one has asked for, but that I deliver nonetheless.

    Summary

    They all thought she was mad at Ryder because Alec had made them Pathfinder, her dour mood a result of being passed over for a promotion. It was easier to let them keep thinking that way.

    Summary

    "Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is believing you're worthy of the trip."

    Tris Ryder never asked to see Andromeda. He said no to the Andromeda Initiative and went about his life. Then he wakes up 600 years in the future. He's still struggling to make sense of the mess that's become his life when he enters a vault on Eos.

     

    VERY AU. Still same basic-ish plot but a lot of differences. Scott-centric, except his name is Tris here. Very slow burn. Contains emotional neglect/abuse by (a) family member(s), a lot of self-doubt and self-worth issues, anxiety, anger, and depression, so keep that in mind if you're easily triggered. SLASH M/M.

    Summary

    An Alec Ryder Lives AU

    Andromeda was a fresh start for Alec Ryder after the death of his beloved wife and fall from grace in the Milky Way in more ways then one.

    "Be better."

    That's what his wife told him as her hand lost its grip. And better he would be. He would make a home for their kids, he would be there the way he should have been from the beginning. He would make them proud and he will tell them just how much he loves them so they know without a doubt they didn't loose both parents after the death of one.

    But then everything goes horribly wrong and he's left floundering to even find the starting point with one of his children.
    -------
    Lyra Ryder wasn't a fighter, not really. She's a scholar first and while there were no prothean ruins in Andromeda there's plenty of locals to study if Cora would stop judging her usefulness and let her do her job. She and her father's relationship may be nothing but a farce, but he at least saw the positives of having non-combative members of the Pathfinders crew.

    But instead of a fresh start away from the stigma the Ryder name had in the Milky Way, it's a slew of even more problems one after another.
