    Summary

    You tried to ask, once, if he had ever met Commander Shepard. You heard that she was on Palaven during the invasion. He corrected you- she was on Menae, but never set foot on Palaven proper. You wonder how he knows that, but don’t ask.

    I met her once, he said after last call. She was extraordinary.

    Summary

    ‘I… don’t think I want to go back to the Normandy.’

    ‘Alright,’ Steve said slowly. ‘No one’s going to make you do that. If anyone deserves a break, it’s you.’

    ‘What if it’s not a break, though? What if I just… stopped?’ Isaac watched Steve’s face carefully, expecting him to be angry or disappointed. Retiring felt too much like giving up, but when Isaac thought about going back to the Normandy, going back to being Commander Shepard… he didn’t want that. He couldn’t do it. They wanted to just be Isaac, nothing more.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Reaper War, the Normandy and her crew find themselves stranded on an uncharted world, uncertain about the fate of the rest of the galaxy they've left behind… including Shepard. For Liara T'Soni, leaving Petra Shepard behind means being burdened with a grief she thought she'd never have to endure again, when the future is so full of unknowns and the only comfort she can find, for now, is in the memories of her bondmate.

    Summary

    Shepard chose to destroy the Reapers.

    My take on what happened after ME3, lots of angst, Shepard is very broken, but it'll eventually have a happy end.

    Follow on piece to 'And the Sky Full of Stars', but can be read as a standalone.

    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.

    Written by IllusiveWritings and illustrated by Shipsnthenight

    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

    --Mass Effect Trilogy spoilers--

    The adventure continues. What happens in the new world?

    Time to rest? No!
    Time to rebuild and reshape the galaxy!

    “Alright,” Shepard proposed, "I know I can’t really move yet. I know the war just ended and we’re all tired. But… we, all of us, with the state of everything and who we are—Each one of us are leaders of our species and played a key part in the galaxy’s survival. We need to take advantage of that power, and break the stranglehold of imperialism that’s been around all our necks since the Leviathan! Look. I’m sorry, but we can’t relax yet. We can rest, recover, whatever we need to do, but then we need to get right back in the game.”

    Summary

    Life was just starting to make sense again. The apartment felt almost like home. Shepard was mostly back on his feet again, and Kaidan was looking forward to resuming his teaching duties. Then the headache to end all headaches upended everything.

    The past has a way of coming back to bite you when you least expect it, and Kaidan has a lot more past than he's mentioned.
