    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.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    Commander Shepard was there the day Earth lost the First Contact War. Major Garrus Vakarian personally watched Humanity surrender to the Turians. But they never could have dreamed the roles they would have in the oncoming fight.

    Yeah, it's an arranged marriage AU. Cuz I'm Shakarian trash. So. Enjoy.

    Summary

    Junior Detective Garrus Vakarian is working on the Citadel when a new case comes in: A human spectre candidate has accused Saren Arterius, the greatest turian spectre to have ever lived, of murdering his own friend and protege Nihlus Kryik.

    It seems like a straightforward case of human ambition, but what will Garrus find as he digs deeper into the lives of his heroes?

    Summary

    This story serves as an alternate ending/continuation of its predecessor The Road In is Not the Same Road Out. You do not need to read that story before reading this one. In the previous story Shepard was transported to Thedas by the Crucible blast after destroying the Reapers and aided the Inquisition with the fight against Corypheus.

    When Dorian helps Shepard find a way back home she decides to find out what has happened to the galaxy left behind in her wake and Cullen Rutherford realizes too late that he may have pushed away the only woman he has ever truly loved.

    [This story primarily focuses on Cullen/Shepard with other minor pairings in the background. I will be aiming to update weekly.]

    Summary

    A lot can happen in two years. Things change, people change, and Sabrina Shepard's death changed me more than I'd like to admit. I was too afraid to fly, I broke down, I never spoke to Jeff... Then all of a sudden, she was back. And even though we were the ones that let her die, they wanted us to fly again. (Sequel to Across the Universe. Second part of the Co-Pilot Series)

    Summary

    Lt. Commander Shepard, the White Death of Elysium and borderline pariah, is named commander of the Fifth Fleet's newest frigate, the SSV Normandy. Her task? The sort of thankless, redaction-heavy missions N7s train for, on call to do cleanup whenever and wherever Admiral Hackett says go. Along the way she forms an unlikely band of misfits into a highly effective army, and discovers just how thin and flimsy the galaxy's veneers of normalcy truly are. (An AU/"Reaper-free" doorstopper TV-Show-format series. Cross-posted on FFdotNet)

    Summary

    It was becoming ridiculous.

    No matter who she ran into, no matter what she’d done for them, they were ready to rail her for not being around. For having turned to work with someone who was willing to help her get back on her feet. For dying.

    Summary

    Emily Shepard-Vakarian is the adopted elven child of Liah Shepard and Garrus Vakarian. When the Normandy's systems started going haywire, she had to set down on the outskirts of Andromeda, on a planet only know to her as H-687t, a habitable world in a cluster still unexplored by Pathfinders. (This timeline puts the Andromeda Initiative leaving AFTER the Reaper war not before!) Her mom and dad fought some of the biggest, baddest things in the Milky-Way, now she was blamed for the explosion of a holy temple and murdering their Holy Woman, Divine Justinia. After four years, Emily thinks she can finally relax, call her mom and get off this rock, until Solas reappears with plans to destroy Thedas. Can she convince her boyfriend that this isn't a good idea? Or is Thedas going to be the epicenter of a galactic war like Earth had been? How will the Angara feel after they just cleaned up the Galaxy of the scourge?

    Summary

    The air was hot, the music loud and the lights pulsing. The club might have been packed, but it was also the perfect place for the crew of the Normandy to unwind after returning from the Omega Nebula. The mission may have been a success, but it had still been stressful, and Jayne Shepard... Alliance captain and Council spectre... needed the shore leave just as much as her crew did. So she'd propped up the bar most of the evening, flirting up a storm with the turian bartender she was certain she would be taking home; until a distinctive, rainbow scaled drell caught her attention.

    *This is an edited/updated version of a short story I originally wrote back in July 2018, that was inspired by the Sean Paul song of the same name. It has been expanded to include a third chapter and even more smut. I hope you enjoy the chances.*

    Summary

    In the year 2050, deep sea explorers discovered the remains of an ancient ocean-dwelling civilization. In the decades that followed, these mysterious habitats revealed startling new technologies that enabled human life to flourish even in Earth’s deepest oceans, long after the planet’s surface became uninhabitable.

    In 2050, we called them the greatest discovery in human history.

    Today, we call them the Protheans.

    Summary

    Shepard and Garrus are madly in love, but they still haven't said those three very important little words to each other. Meanwhile, Tali, Liara, Traynor, and Vega have all discovered the more than strictly professional relationship between their commander and the Hierarchy's reaper advisor. But they don't know that they know, so of course, what's a crew to do but have a little fun of their own.
