    Summary

    After leaving Horizon, Commander John Shepard has focused on recruiting the rest of his team. But when Miranda finds intel on what turns out to be a rogue Cerberus operation in a secluded part of the Traverse, he ends up with a new teammate he never expected - himself, from another timeline. It turns out Shep is no clone, though; she’s her own woman, and though they share backgrounds as Mindoir survivors and heroes of the Skyllian Blitz, there’s just as much setting them apart as there is that proves they’re both the Commander Shepard. Under the care of the familiar faces of her crew that nonetheless isn’t her crew, she adopts the identity of John’s long-lost sister, and tries to find her place in a galaxy she knows and yet seems like it might forever be foreign.

    She’s a force to be reckoned with, and though her own universe has been destroyed by the hubris of the rogue operation, she’s determined to save his own right alongside him - and to reunite him with the man he misses the most from his own original crew... even as she tries not to think about just how close she and this Garrus are becoming - or how close she wants to become.

    Now that Kaidan is back on board the Normandy, Dr. Sasha Sanders tags along for more ME3 adventures. How does he find out about Shepard and Garrus? What is going on with Shepard's mods? Is Vega really flirting with him? (spoiler: yes, he absolutely is).

    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

    [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.

    Summary

    Garrus is betrayed. Ten men are dead on Omega. The gangs are already rebounding. Archangel is an unmitigated failure. After everything, there's no reason Garrus should be alive, but sometimes, people get what they don't deserve. "Just like old times," Garrus says, but it's not. It never will be again. An ME2 novelization.

    Summary

    All those times he's annoyed her over the years, as often as she's been sorely tempted to shoot him in the foot just to shut him up and stop him from triggering some catastrophic event—the least of which was when the idiot nearly got himself killed trying to bust a phony red sand operation, for god's sake—Shepard never imagined they’d be here like this, that she’d ever allow him in her apartment.

    She certainly couldn’t have known she’d enjoy indulging her mean side this much.

    Conrad Verner is a sub to a Shepard/Garrus/Kasumi triad in the post-Reaper world. This is the beginning of their story.

    Summary

    Everything was perfect. Saren was defeated. Sovereign fell from the sky. They'd survived it all and discovered something more... in each other. And then it all fell apart. Shepard took the rest of the team to investigate the continuing geth sighting. C-Sec obligations forced Garrus to stay behind... And when she'd needed him most, he wasn't there to watch her six. The love of his life died over Alchera and the galaxy came crashing down around him. An avenging spirit emerged that day. He called himself: Archangel.

    Summary

    What is left when the ashes fall? Who is there to pick up the pieces? Are some burdens too much for any one person to bear?

    The Crucible was activated. The choice rippled through the galaxy. And now, with the Reapers defeated at last, the ones left standing must face the aftermath of fallen nations and toppled civilizations. They all knew the outcome, but so few were truly ready to face the consequences of what survival truly meant.

    Set directly following the ending of ME3, this dual-POV fic explores grief, love, and healing between Garrus, Shepard, and the galaxy at large.

    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!

    Summary

    Annette Shepard has had a hard life. Losing her family on Mindoir, losing her unit on Akuze, losing two years of her life, and now losing the man she once loved. After a brutal reunion on Horizon, Annette has to pick up the pieces and push forward. Luckily she has the galaxy's (second) best shot at her side helping her along the way.

    This will be a bit of a slow burn working through the transition of Garrus and Shep's relationship from best friends to lovers as they hunt down the collectors.

    Feedback and suggestions more than welcome!

    Summary

    “Irikah had seen the laser dot of my scope on my target and threw herself in between us. It… it reminds me of what Shepard did.”

    “He didn’t deserve to be saved,” he hisses at the drell who responds with a thin, serene smile.

    “No. But you were.”

    Summary

    So many things have gone wrong. But then there's her. A good luck charm, if he dared to let himself believe in that sort of thing. Maybe it's worth a shot.

    (another shakarian fic, this time with Garrus as my focal character)
