    Summary

    Amara Essan Shepard has known Kaidan Alenko since childhood. Their families were close once, at least they were until the 'Shepard Curse' began, leaving Amara with only her maternal Grandmother as family. As the years passed, Amara and Kaidan drifted apart until both of them are assigned to the Normandy crew. Feelings return from the past and new issues and battles need to be fought, but will they find each other as more than just childhood friends? (This fic is planned to cover the Trilogy and beyond)

    This story follows the gist of the games and other media but I have taken the liberty of changing things here and there and running with it. This is a long time in coming, hope you enjoy it!

    Summary

    Ten years have passed since the war. With the last mass relay built, some of the original Normandy crew gather for its activation. But something goes horribly awry, and an explosion opens a rift. The Normandy is sucked into an Einstein-Rosen bridge, and Shepard wakes up later to a silent CIC. The crew is missing, and just outside the cockpit window, a mass relay is in view. The only problem is that it looks similar to the relays destroyed during the war.

    Sucked through space and time into another universe three years before the Reaper Invasion. What will Shepard change? How will it change her?

    Summary

    Both John Shepard and Ashley Williams are soldiers to a T, he is a war hero coming from an esteemed military family, she is longing for a chance to prove herself, as her family name has been nothing but a hindrance for her career.
    When their paths cross, they discover that they have more in common than they thought, and soon, unforeseen tensions arise. Feelings which might hazard everything that has been important for them till now, especially the uniform they are wearing, and the oaths, which went along with it. And all that while the galaxy is in danger.

    My take on the Mass Effect 1 arc, containing mainly off-screen moments between Shepard, Ash, and the crew, serving as background for the other parts in my series.

    Major Character Death because of a planet called Virmire.

    Summary

    Humans are exceptionally skilled at adapting, fast and violently, when needed. Turians are fiercely dedicated and proud of the militant prowess that marks their species across the galaxy. Both are willing to burn the ground they stand on to win a different type of war.

    In the twelve years that followed human’s rough introduction to the galactic community beyond the Charon relay, little changed the general distaste for homo sapiens ‘ingenuity’ amongst council species. Sparked by the rapid rise of human political power, species extremism polarizes Citadel space. Forced to work together, Shepard and Garrus are tasked with investigating a string of terrorist attacks that threaten to destabilize galactic peace. What starts as a collection of awkward firsts, develops into a game of broken rules and self-deception. For Shepard and Garrus, facing the truth about themselves and each other just might be the hardest feat.

    Set in an alternate universe.
