    Summary

    Blessed by the gods, Shepard is tasked with hunting down those responsible for the violence done to her. The offense done to the gods when she was ripped across time, brought back from death, cannot go unanswered by the Siha.

    This draws on a bunch of things from the first, so read that first and is the second in the series (of three). This will go through the events of Arrival and the first half or so of Mass Effect 3, though there will be more substantial shifts from canon, it will still have the same main missions, etc. Thane lives. Another bit of a slow burn after Shepard gets taken into custody and brought back to Earth.

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Let them call me a savior...or a butcher. Let the galaxy over rally at my name, if they must. Let me be carved in stone and only the best of my words remembered. Let them immolate me and erase my existence. Let them take whatever they need because I...I can't give anymore.
    Sequel to "This Side of Yesterday" and "This Side of Tomorrow" - A retelling of ME3 through the eyes of Liara T'Soni, as wrapped in a story set centuries after the Reaper War's ending. First and third person POVs.

    Summary

    Tali'Zorah was just looking for a worthy pilgrimage gift, but is sucked into the adventure of her liftime instead. At the helm: Commander Shepard, greatest hero of the Alliance. But with a life of violence and loss behind him and the weight of the galaxy on his shoulders, Tali soon finds that perhaps John Shepard needs her just as much as she needs him...

    Violence, Language. Written mostly from Tali's and Shepard's POV, but everyone on the squad (including Joker) gets to be POV at least once. Even Kaidan.

    Summary

    LT Nathan Briggs was on his way to N-school before being transferred to Alliance HQ in Vancouver, assigned to guard duty. Commander Shepard was probably one of the last people in the galaxy he wanted to meet.
    My take on ME3. Rated M for language, violence and character death.

    Summary

    Everybody needs motivation, the Illusive Man knows this and focuses on the perfect ploy to get Commander Shepard to willingly work for Cerberus, even if it means committing to the delicate craft of breaking down a person like Kaidan Alenko to make him the perfect chess piece in the battle for humanity.
