    Summary

    Hey Commander,

    We’re on our way back to Earth. Not for you; you’re definitely dead. I said we should find a beach somewhere and retire, but no one ever listens to me. Garrus and Liara said we’re going to Earth because that’s what you would want. Which I guess means it’s kind of for you. If I can get the Normandy off of Sur’Kesh. I mean, I can definitely get her off of Sur’Kesh. After everyone else fixes her.

    Oh, by the way; Garrus is an asshole now. You know how he always had that stick up his ass? Yeah, now it’s a club. A big one. I don’t know how he fits it up there when he’s not using it to beat everyone into his way of thinking. The only person he’s afraid to use it on is Liara, and I’m pretty sure that’s because he knows she’ll put him in stasis if he gets too out of line. He’s pissed that you died. Pissed that we’re stranded. Honestly, he’s just pissed about everything.

    Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m kind of pissed at you, too. You’re Commander fucking Shepard. You’re not supposed to die. Permanently, anyway.

    If things work out we should be able to stop by in six months or so. Clear your calendar.

    See ya,
    The Best Pilot in the Galaxy

    Summary

    me·tem·psy·cho·sis
    /ˌmedəmˌsīˈkōsəs,məˌtemsəˈkōsəs/
    noun
    the supposed transmigration at death of the soul of a human being or animal into a new body of the same or a different species.

     

    Set after the events of Mass Effect 3.

    It has been four months since the Reapers were destroyed. All technology has crumbled, and much of Earth is a pile of ash and rubble. The famed Commander Shepard has not been seen since before the final assault to the Citadel. After months of radio silence, a message has finally gone through to her famous ship, The Normandy, and her crew has begun making their way back to Earth. Liara struggles to cope with the fact that her bondmate- her love, might have perished in the fight. With no contact for a month, many assume the worse. Garrus tries to step up in Shepard's place, but tensions rise as rumors of a new enemy come to fruition. EDI and the Geth are seemingly inactive, but not totally destroyed.

    When Shepard's body is found by an old friend, things aren't as they seem. There are other parties at work, and nobody is sure if they are with them or against them.

    Summary

    Shepard sent him away so she could run for the beam and save the galaxy, but Garrus Vakarian won't be left behind that easily.

    --

    I would do just about anything for her if she asked.

    Now, though, she's ordering me to sit on the sidelines for the most important mission of our lives, to wait around and hope she can handle whatever is up there on her own. I guess I've found the one thing I won't do for her.

    A good turian would follow a bad order from his commander, but I've never been a good turian. I'll be damned if I start being one now.

    Summary

    Three days after the sudden collapse of the Reapers and the end of the war, there's only destruction, chaos and pain left in the galaxy. Rebuilding will take years, decades, for now all they can do is heal the wounded, and bury the dead.

    Jane Shepard though, has no intention of being counted among those dead.

    Post-destroy ending, with a twist of indoctrination theory just for fun. I started writing in 2013 and exhumed it because shipsnthenight offered to illustrate it. We have to kill time during the quarantine after all, right?

    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

    Most believe she is dead, but a few know the truth: Commander Shepard is alive.

    With the pull of a trigger, she made a decision which would would seal the fate of billions of lives across the Milky Way galaxy, but the aftermath of her choice left her own fate up in the air. As Earth and many other planets throughout the galaxy now have the chance to rebuild thanks to her, they do so mostly on their own with limited technology and resources.

    Her continued existence, due to a classified part of the Lazarus Project called Icarus, simultaneously poses a threat to the many while offering a potentially greater reward to the few. What would happen if Shepard defeated the Reapers and survived to now be the most valuable asset to rebuild and improve upon tech that was destroyed with the enemy?

    As various races across the galaxy work to reestablish themselves, some aim to come out on top. As this ambition puts Shepard and her loved ones at risk, they quickly learn that new dangers ahead of them won't make them forget the challenges they've faced thus far. Every battle they've fought couldn't prepare them for what's to come. Even when a war ends, there is still so much to fight for.

    Summary

    "You know the Commander?"

    Does he?

    He thought he'd loved her, once. And now... now he doesn't know who she is anymore, and he doesn't know who he is without her.

    "I used to," he tells Vega.

    Summary

    Shepard's built a career on the impossible, but there's no way she could come back from the dead again. Kaidan isn't so sure. Is it grief or faith making him so unwilling to let go? He's got a job to do to help rebuild, and he can use that to find her...dead or alive.

    [Paragon sole survivor/spacer Shepard, Destroy ending. I may add more characters later. Grief can make you question yourself in some difficult ways - folks with personal experience, this may get triggering for you, hard to say for sure while I'm writing this. I've been dealing with a lot the past two years. I like using this part of the quarian passphrase to the Flotilla as my title. It's hopeful.]
