    Summary

    She was Commander Shepard. Newly appointed War Hero and symbol of the Alliance. She would have to do her best to work for peace, but she still had to expect hostility to come her way. That was all she had experienced, all she knew. Playing nice with a bunch of aliens might be harder than she originally thought. She could only hope they would keep their promise, especially whoever she would be working with. Honestly having no clue what working together really meant.

    First Contact War AU.

    Summary

    Summary: A turian Lieutenant fights for the lives of his platoon. A human General struggles to maintain peace. As they both fight their own battles, each one struggles to surmount colossal objectives. Until they met at last.

    Excerpt:
    What Victus never accounted for was the possibility of going to war with a newly discovered race. Perhaps, when he was younger, he had held grand thoughts of leading a team against another acid-spitting, fourteen-eyed insect race like the rachni. He would shoot a phantom individual in the head with his imaginary shotgun and step away heroically to avoid the resultant green spray of acidic blood and brain matter while his platoon cheered.

    Of course, as he aged, such fantasies of resplendent heroism died long before he landed on Shanxi. Fortunate, because their enemies were not six-eyed insectoids that spewed acid and shat webbing. They were bipedal like most races, with only two forward-facing eyes, asari-like hands, and they bled red when bullets hit them. Sometimes, they even cried like asari.

    Human, they called themselves.

    Summary

    Saren Arterius is the youngest and probably shortest recruit in the history of Blackwatch Team Ravus.

    His first deployment as ground support on the colony of Shanxi is going well until the Systems Alliance 2nd Fleet crashes the turian occupation.

    Even if Saren and his team survive—there's a non-zero chance that he'll be banished to the Cabals when this is all over.

    Summary

    The First Contact War changed the lives of many, but more so for the Vakarians.
    Solana Vakarian is always thought of as another Turian, (seriously. -_- I looked this shit up) but what if she wasn't. The only thing we really know about her is that she's Garrus's sister. So, I decided to write a story about my own version of Solana and how she came to be Garrus's sister. Don't judge me too harshly.

    Summary

    A human medic chooses to be at odds with the others when it comes time for the surrender of Shanxi.
    Better to focus on the long term than the grievances of turian and human conflict, he thinks.

    He keeps everyone at a professional distance as he focuses on his work.
    There is one who proves to be an exception.

    Summary

    The first contact war was followed by years of hot and cold warfare between humans and turians. Several attempts by the council to force a permanent truce has failed. Now both the Hierarchy and the Alliance has agreed to an armistice which has lasted for 6 years. Gagarin Station (Jump Zero)has been established as a place of reconciliation, where turian recruits and human biotics train side by side as supposed allies. However, old grudges die hard and for some of the students it's hard to let go of the past.

    Will friendship outlast the end of childhood? When team Four is spread across space, divided by duty, will something remain of Jump Zero’s lessons, or will the new emerging enemy strain every relationship past its breaking point?

    New chapters (pretty much) every week!

    Summary

    Humanity has long thought of themselves as the only intelligent species left in the galaxy. With the only knowledge that we have of aliens existing being the ruins and clues that they left behind. Today we know that aliens exist and they wish only for our destruction. Humanity is more divided than it has ever been but many believe that our greatest strength comes from us uniting against any threat. We can only hope that it will not be too late when we do.

    Summary

    He's the lone cowboy, the knight's errant, a drifter with no particular place to be and nothing to lose.

    "Haunted by his pain, his past and name
    For every mile he rides
    What he cannot hide,
    Is the longing in his heart to love again"
    - Elton John, The Drover's Ballad (Australia 2008 Film)
