    Summary

    During the Battle of the Citadel, decisions were made. The Destiny Ascension and the Council were sacrificed to kill the Sovereign Nazara. It was a hard decision. It was a military decision, a necessary decision.

    It was the decision that turned the galaxy against the Systems Alliance, triggering the Betrayal War. The Humans fought but against the entire Galaxy, they couldn't fight forever. And at the same time they knew what the Council denied, the Reapers were coming.

    When they came, as they inevitably did, the Humans called to them. The Reapers came to Earth and a deal was made.

    40 years later, the Council had best be wary, because it was time for the Harvest, and the Humans would lead the way.

    Story takes place over multiple Reaper cycles.

    Summary

    "Shepard, hold still."

    The words bounced around as if her head were an echo chamber, rattling back and forth until meaning caught up with sound. She knew the voice. Resonant, but soft. Whispers in warm darkness and shouts on a battlefield. Safety and comfort. There was a face in her head to go with it— blue eyes, blue paint, and scar tissue.

    Summary

    (Currently one-shot) Shepard chose Synthesis, and the galaxy prospered, but not all things go as everyone expected. Somehow, Shepard's consciousness got preserved and ended waking up in a brand new Reaper body. And unfortunately for the Reapers, all of them have emotions now, which means that Harbinger is fuming and cursing the day he heard Shepard's name. So what could possibly go wrong once Shepard convinces everyone to go to Andromeda just for shits and giggles?

    Summary

    They say a rumor becomes a legend when it's already a tale among the folk. Other events are doomed to be forgotten by the history. In this reality, in near future a tale died thus never had the chance to become a legend. A little human boy died in a ship explosion caused by Batarian Pirates trying to capture his family's ship. The shot hit the already penetrated core room instead of the engines and explosion swarmed all of the ship. It got mentioned in an Alliance News Channels and people forgot about it two days later. But the fate had different plans for him in a different universe, in a different reality...It's the Hybrid Quarian's tale; Uli'Nich vas Cyniad.

    Summary

    2186 – Valni and Kenneth are trying to make their relationship work, but the trauma of past events is taking its toll on Kenneth. Valni, too, is struggling in her new job, not least when she has to arrest Kenneth’s boss, Commander Shepard. To make matters worse she discovers her late father may have been murdered; a sadistic merc is trying to kill her; a deadly enemy is after a mysterious Geth device… And there’s the small matter of a Reaper invasion.

    The battle to save the galaxy takes Valni from Earth’s moon, to the pastures of Palaven; from the barren wastes of Tuchanka, to the towering cities of Thessia, and ultimately leads to a confrontation that may cost her everything.

    As her father once said: “There is no victory without sacrifice.”

    Summary

    An attempt to revise the ending of Mass Effect 3, very loosely based on the Dark Energy theory.

    Shepard is written as Dude!Shep for simplicity, and squadmates are also generically written.

    It's assumed you brought your LI to the final mission, but they're written with gender-neutral pronouns.

    Dragged along as the Dursleys flee Financial Ruin, Harry finds himself on Omega after his disastrous fourth year. He arrives, and finds trouble that leaves him without his memory and no idea of who he is, just as a lost Garrus Vakarian wanders the station, looking for some form of redemption or relief from the grief of losing Shepard. Something about the waif of a boy reminds him of how lost he was before Shepard, and Garrus takes the human under his wing. He has no idea the trouble that one act of kindness will bring him when the Order of the Pheonix tracks down their lost hero. INCOMPLETE

    Summary

    In four billion years or so, the Milky Way would collide and merge with Andromeda. Many, many billions of years after that, the universe would die the slow, quiet death of maximum entropy and, perhaps then, the intelligence would go with it.

    Many years after Shepard chose to control the reapers, she is still living with the ghosts she left behind.

    Summary

    What if Humanity lived in a very different world than the mass Effect we know.

How would humanity evolve in a world where the borders between realities has grown thin. How will the galaxy be changed by the existence of these unique Anomalies, not limited to only Earth.

    Summary

    Published for the 10th Anniversary of KOTOR, this tale mixes two of Bioware's biggest hits and the results could be... explosive.

    Shepard and her crew thought that The Crucible would save them and destroy the Reapers. They were wrong. New rules. New enemies. New war.
