    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

    Elizabeth Shepard, the Earthborn, mostly-Paragon, biotic, misfit heroine of The Null Room and The Passage finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    might go without saying, but the state of Shepard's and Vega's relationship (not to mention the state of the Normandy, etc) won't make sense if you haven't read The Null Room and The Passage. there's also a decent amount of Shepard/Alenko angst, lingering in the background like swamp gas about to erupt at any moment.

    this fanfiction has an entire recorded playthrough where you can watch the game being played, running in tandem with the story, including a ton of editing to construct some scenes that don't exist in the general game (but, I argue, could.) links in every chapter.

    chapter count subject to change. void where prohibited. please avoid operating large machinery when reading this fic.

    Summary

    MORE flashbacks, interstitial scenes, and backdoor dealings. An AU retelling of ME3 focusing on characters and worlds, big and small.

    Nerdy, worldbuilding-heavy, flashback-heavy, intended to elaborate upon the canon through the POV of many different characters. Shipping is very minor, but when and if it happens it will be Joker/EDI, Shepard/Tali, Liara/Javik, and Gabby/Ken (in descending order of importance).

    Will be more serial and more AU than its predecessor, but it should still be the case that most chapters should stand alone.

    Summary

    Chapter 6 has arrived; Chapter 7 is coming!

    Where life is not so unjustly taken from a hero who has more than earned the breath in their lungs and the love in their arms.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.

    Summary

       “So you ran a cleaning service on Omega.” He waved the brag off dismissively. “Back on Fehl Prime, I uncovered a pair of Harvesters. Had to kill ‘em. By myself.”

         “Two wormnecks?” Did he detect a note of respect in the turian’s voice? About damn time. “That’s… almost impressive.”

         James had him on the ropes. Time to ring his bell and win this thing with a mic drop. “Oh, that’s not even the best part. They left behind an egg. It hatched. And I trained it to let me fly it.” Each word was more outrageous than the last, and Vega knew he was painting himself into a corner. Too bad Rosa Shepard had been eavesdropping. She could never resist giving the guy a good ribbing over a white lie like that.
