    Summary

    Shepard rejects the Catalyst's curated options. When the apparent ghost of Legion comes to her aid, she entrusts both the galaxy's fate--and her own--to him. She is rewarded with a life where she kept her promise to Garrus. Yet questions persist regarding the Crucible; finding the answers will require fighting Terra Prima fascists, reconnecting the Geth Consensus, and (maybe) getting married.

    "Remember, Shepard-Commander: The first thing a god masters is herself."

    A post-ME3 story exploring new mysteries, domestic life, disability, and romance for Shepard. Established Shakarian love builds to Shalibrations throuple once Tali moves in with her favorite human and turian on the Citadel. Various Normandy Ensemble appearances.

    *Now featuring art by Alan M. Capes (seealandraw) [Ch.7] and The Pixel Agora (thepixelagora) [Ch.11]

    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.

    Sometimes several hours after I post a chapter I come back and edit it again a smidge. If I decide to change anything big I leave a comment.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    Miranda Lawson has done it before, so she can surely do it again.

    Summary

    Garrus & Elle continue their adventure into Mass Effect 3! This one is a lot exciting and a lot heartbreaking, but it won't be exactly what you expect. Yes, I'm saying that the ending won't be canon because screw that. There's a lot more to come.

    **Not a standalone!** You'll probably be lost if you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first.

    CW/TW: dark themes, tons of angst, graphic descriptions of violence/war, very graphic sex

    It's Bioware's sandbox!

    After the conflict that would later be known as the First Contact War comes to an end, humanity enters a new era as a spacefaring species. The first step? Make amends with the turians. With mistrust and resentment on both sides, this is a difficult task... For most people.

    In the midst of this new reality growing around them, Jane Shepard and Garrus Vakarian desperately try to figure out their relationship—and learn that it may just be even more difficult out in the open, especially when they're both pushed into the spotlight.

    Summary

    Saving the galaxy isn't something that happens every day, so when Shepard and her team investigate a suspicious ship they don't expect much. They'll discover something that will change many lives.

     

    The tags are so dark but I don't want to trigger people. The story itself isn't that dark, but stay safe people!

    Summary

    A one-shot that brings Destiel into the Mass Effect Universe...and into the fun with Elle & Garrus. Dean is already confused about his feelings for Cas, so when he ends up in an alternate universe and finds himself attracted not only to the fiesty redhead but to her spiky non-human husband, the confusion only gets worse. But Garrus has a plan to solve Dean's problems and give the hunter lessons he can use with Cas.

    ***This is NOT entirely canon to the Rewrite the Stars series, but it IS related. I can’t actually tell you when in the series it happens lol but the relationship is theirs. You may not understand the Shepard/Garrus relationship here if you haven't read any of that series first.***

    I did write this a few years ago (originally a birthday present for a friend) before the end of the Supernatural series, so this is not canon with that either and doesn't specify a timeline during the show.

    Summary

    [Fictober 2021 Fic Collection, individual summaries before entries]

    The plot lines of Mass Effect take Commander Ryn Shepard through life, death, trauma, heroism, and everything in between. Beside her through it all is Garrus: ally, friend, and so much more. Between all the fights, all the world saving and threats of it all ending, there are moments shared between them. The good, the bad, the loving, and the heartbreaking.

    This is a collection of those moments.

    Though their roleplay may be subpar, the lovemaking certainly isn't.

    Summary

    During the Quarian-Heretic Geth battle above Rannoch, a piece of Legion's code gets downloaded, rewritten, and sold. It's uploaded as a passenger ship's AI.

    Summary

    As we all know, the ending of ME3 majorly sucked. And so I have decided to write myself a good one—without the Catalyst AI at all, keeping with the tone of the Citadel DLC.
    Initially written to go with my fanart series on tumblr, this piece shows Commander Shepard recovering from her injuries after the events of ME3. Includes some Hospitalized!Shepard and a lot of Shakarian.

    Summary

    This is a canon/uncanon timeline after the second game. I wanted more freedom when I was writing the story, so I am writing this story directly after the events of the second game. The choices made were based on a Paragon route with Female Shepard. The uncanon part is more what they're doing between the second and third game.

    Summary

    He stutters, apparently nervous at the serious turn in the conversation. “When I first got onto the Normandy, I thought… I - I mean, I hoped -”

    “Yeah?” My voice lowers in volume and pitch, and I take his hand in both of mine. I lean forward, smiling.

    “I really like you,” he whispers, longing filling his gaze.

    ~~~

    Or, Garrus and Shepard’s first date definitely involves some confessions. ME2

    Summary

    As he gets ready for their first date, Garrus thinks about his past with Shepard. Their first meeting, their friendship… his love for her. He remembers how he felt when she got spaced. Turians don't usually believe in fate, but Garrus was never a good turian.

    Summary

    “I can just go in my undersuit. It’s waterproofed-”

    “Oh no, no no no,” Solana said immediately, “We need to get you a proper swimsuit. A- what is it you humans call it? A ‘bee-key-knee’?”

    Garrus coughed and muttered sotto voce, “A bikini.”

    or;

    It's been two years since Shepard successfully fired the Crucible and ended the Reaper threat for good. Now it's time for her greatest challenge yet: meeting Garrus's family for a perfectly normal week long holiday without something crazy happening (or her causing the destruction of yet another popular sushi restaurant).
