    Summary

    Chapter 7 has arrived; Chapter 8 is coming!

    Where life is not so unjustly taken from a hero who has more than earned the breath in their lungs and the love in their arms.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.
    UNDER CONSTANT EDITS----STAY TUNED

    Summary

    In 2170 Mindoir was raided by batarian slavers, killing or enslaving the entire colony. It was thought that the first human spectre, Commander Shepard, was the sole survivor of the brutal attack. But when evidence that his sister is alive comes to light, his world is turned upside down.

    Yet, survival comes at a cost. After all, heroes aren't born from happiness. And this tale delves into a dark, brutal world as we come to know the siblings who had the courage to endure and stand against the tide.

    A story of resiliency, determination, and hope in a galaxy of disrepair. This fic will follow our young heroes through the conclusion of The Reaper War. Yet, this is not a simple retelling of the trilogy. The entire war will be rewritten in order to give our galactic villains, The Reapers, the respect they deserve.

    * Any chapter(s) with graphic, sexual violence will be prefaced with a warning, and easily skippable. While abuse is never portrayed in a positive light, it is present. And even though I devolve into humor, banter, and what I hope to be heart-warming moments, there are psychological aspects and scenes some may find uncomfortable.

    Summary

    When Mindoir is attacked by Batarian slavers, sixteen-year-old Cara Jane Shepard is saved not by the Alliance, but by the mercenary Zaeed Massani. She joins his small mercenary operation, picking up other familiar faces along the way.

    Now, 28-year-old Shepard is helping to lead the crew, and a job with a huge payday comes their way. Millions of credits and practically served to them on a silver platter, it's just too good to pass up. Plus, Eden Prime is a backwoods paradise colony. What could go wrong?

    It seems that Shepard's fate is sealed when it comes to the Prothean artifact, but has her life been changed too much to make a difference when the Reapers threaten the galaxy.

    Summary

    Annette Shepard has had a hard life. Losing her family on Mindoir, losing her unit on Akuze, losing two years of her life, and now losing the man she once loved. After a brutal reunion on Horizon, Annette has to pick up the pieces and push forward. Luckily she has the galaxy's (second) best shot at her side helping her along the way.

    Feedback and suggestions more than welcome!

    Summary

    Jeff Moreau just wanted a quiet place to study. Someone intrudes and makes herself a rather permanent part of his life, from the Academy to the end of the galaxy. He's the one who has to drop her into hell, over and over, but he'll always get her back. He's her pilot after all - and he'd follow her anywhere she asked of him.

    Ashe Shepard didn't ask for her scars, but she earned them nonetheless. Only one person sees her, truly sees her, and she'd do anything to make sure he doesn't fall into oblivion with her. She's his commander, after all - it's her duty to bring him home to safe harbour.

    Slight AU where Joker and Shepard meet in the Academy, and then it only grows from there. Liberties taken with relationships/timelines/events/biotics. Largely canon-compliant but we're all here to have fun right? The slowest of burns.

    Summary

    She remembers a lot of things. The gold fields of grain, the smell of broken stalks in the harvest...
    The smoke and footsteps of alien feet, the blood that filled her nostrils...

    Summary

    It was an easy mission in theory. An acquisition run to the human colony on Mindoir and, with a little luck, the opening of overtures between the Migrant Fleet and the new race flooding into the galaxy from some little yellow-star system uncountable light years from the Tinnuk and Rannoch and all the lost homes of the quarian people.

    A trade for granger-units to grow food on the liveships. Maybe a few little items. Maybe even a fresh start with a species that's never known the geth and might have goodwill to spare the beleaguered nomads of the Migrant Fleet.

    The doors of the starship Gorach open and the quarians are confronted with death and horror.

    And one scared little girl who will one day shape the fate of the galaxy as Jane'Nur vas Normandy nar Shepard.

    Summary

    It is said the first human Spectre, Commander Irene Shepard, was the sole survivor of the raid on Mindoir which batarian slavers either slaughtered or enslaved their victims. Irene, on the other hand, was hoping her older brother was still alive.

    But for now, she has to confront Saren after he's been confirmed to be working with the Geth. Little does anyone know, the strange red jewel Irene wears around her neck has extraordinary powers no military in the galaxy could recognize.

    Summary

    “I can’t ask you to throw your life away.”

    Garrus smirked, in his own way. “Aw, but I’m really good at that.”

    ---

    After the destruction of the Alpha Relay, Garrus convinces Shepard to run rather than surrender.

    What remains of the crew of the Normandy re-invent themselves as mercenaries on Omega, waging a guerilla war against Cerberus, waiting for the world to end.

    Life goes on, but not as Shepard’s ever known it.

    Episodic/slice of life, some humor, quite a bit of angst, intermittent plot. Medium-to-slow burn, smut eventually.

    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.
