    Summary

    It's been a long road and the outcome is still unclear. We've learned to rely on each other as, colleagues, allies... friends. The Reapers mean to take that from us. They've taken our homes and our sense of security. They plan to take our lives... Everything we are, or ever will be... wiped away in the name of 'order'. It's time we took the fight to them. We push back... and we take back our future. I'll lead us to victory... or die trying.

    Summary

    I wanted to know what happened to Shepard, her friends, and love after she used/went into the Catalyst. I didn't like that in some she could die and leave Garrus alone, so I wrote about their lives and what they would do if she lived. Oh, and Happy #N7Day !

    Summary

    Personal audio log entry
    Steven Hackett
    [EDATE: 271805Z SEPT 2186]
    "The majority of the Alliance Admirals already knew we would be the underdogs when the Reapers came.

    I too, of course.

    But despite all my careful preparations the speed predictions were wrong, even my own. The cursed bastards were even faster...
    And that very detail we had tried to pin down without success for eight months now, could have cost us the war before it begun, unable as we were - are - to fully comprehend their might, and thus exactly how much of underdogs WE are.

    Even if we can get all the combined forces of the galaxy to work together, the odds do look grim at the moment and making us grasp at every straw.

    But I owe it to the Second, to Arcturus' victims to keep on trying find a way to defeat the Reapers,
    So I will find a way, somehow.
    Or die trying."

    Summary

    Dâgalûr, the most powerful of the Orcs of Mordor, was ripped from his homeland.
    The half-breed was stuck in a galaxy ruled by several new species, divided in most aspects, yet united against a common foe. He joined the crew of The Normandy, under Commander Jane Shepard, and went on a quest to save this new, strange universe from an ancient evil, while (hopefully) cracking some skulls along the way.

    Summary

    Sequel to "Our Fair Lady"

    "Muffled jazz swum through the haze of cigarette smoke and night air. A man sat on the stoop, staring up at the moon. It hung low over the desert with a thousand stars. The mesas stood underneath them pridefully. Sage danced on the breeze, mingling with crickets and music. The view was nice, but Ashley was waiting on him inside. Her set would be done by now, and Vega knew he'd have to get to work kicking the stragglers out. Stubbing out the cigarette, he stood to leave when something caught his eye. It was hurtling towards the ground, then flashed brightly. He heard the impact a second later."

    Meanwhile, Garrus Vakarian is slowly getting used to his new routine. Even though he hates his job, his new partner isn't all that bad. John Shepard is human, but he's good at what he does and believes in doing what's right...heck, he might even consider him a friend.

    Summary

    Trying to save the universe isn't just point and shoot. It's dangerous, gritty, and painful. It's sleepless nights, loss of appetite, addictions, endless politics, and injuries. But there are bright moments where your friends and crew are there for you, when connections are made, and where you love each other unconditionally. You are all brethren born of ash and flame and baptized in battle together. You are shaped by wit and banter, alcohol and war stories. This is the story of how deep friendships go, how they were forged, and how the beginning of the end molds Shepard and Garrus into one solid front against it.

    Summary

    The Commander of the Inquisition, in a turn of unfortunate events, finds himself pulled into an unusual rift outside of Redcliffe Castle. One minute, he’s fighting alongside his troops. The next, he’s waking up somewhere he doesn’t fully recognize, with memories of a life that he doesn’t think was his own. They call him “Commander Shepard” and by the information he finds, that’s who he is.

    Trying to find any possible way to get used to his life as it is now is only complicated more once the Reapers attack Earth. It’s complicated even further when he starts to get glimpses of a history he shares with someone who served with him all those years ago starting back on Eden Prime. As he starts to regain all parts of him, Cullen has to decide if Thedas is worth trying to get back to, or if he can make a new home in a wide galaxy of possibilities.

    Summary

    Omega was her home now: the perfect hideout for the runaway Lieutenant Murphy; a place where the Alliance would never dare to crawl into. Even so, anonymity was a must, especially when she worked for the ruler of that scum place, Aria T'Loak.
    Or that's what it looked like.
    A vigilante known as Archangel fought against the gangs and bad guys that flooded the city. Crossing paths with him was just a matter of time.

    Summary

    It always starts with a bet.

    The Shepard twins grew up roaming Earth’s forgotten streets. They kept each other alive and made a habit of driving one another forward with bets. They started simply enough, but the older they got, the higher the stakes rose. To outsiders, it was hostile, grim, and competitive. To them, it was a game that gave them an edge in life. At 18, they found themselves enlisted in the Alliance military. Over ten years later, they’re assigned together on a shakedown run to Eden Prime. It’s time for their biggest wager yet: the title of first human Spectre. But when we make plans, our gods laugh.

    A tale of two Shepards taking on the events of Mass Effect 1. The galaxy will never be the same.
