    Summary

    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 not 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

    “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

    When Julienne Shepard gets put on mandatory leave, she picks the option that will bring her back to the Normandy the quickest - a week at an exclusive yet remote mansion-turned-hotel, filled with eccentric guests. As the body count begins to rise, however, it's up to her and Garrus to quickly figure out the motive, means, and murderer.

    Loosely based on the film Clue.

    Summary

    Shepard died. There was no two ways about it. He was admittedly brought back, and the Collectors provided a nice diversion at least.

    He still died, was put back together and revived, and then sent to fight a new apocalyptic threat.

    He was not okay with all that!

    Summary

    Chapter 6 has arrived; Chapter 7 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.

    Summary

    Shepard left her family behind on Mindoir. Really, she did. Any memories resurfaced or people reminding her of them are purely coincidental. She is the model picture of mental health! A beacon of a soldier for the alliance!

    If only that whole dance and song worked on Liara.

    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 has been months since Thane last saw Garrus and Shepard, months since he's been recovering from his operation. For a while, Thane started to wonder if something had happened to them during the war.

    Safe to say, he has never been so glad to be proven wrong.

    Karina Shepard:
    * Infiltrator
    * Paragon to a fault
    * Colonist Background
    * Sole Survivor
