    Summary

    Shepard has just been told she needs to face the music sometime - especially after she nukes an entire Batarian system. Now, she's left with some time to herself for once, and she has some loose ends to tie up, and she has to figure out what she is going to do about her relationship with one bad-boy turian vigilante - but she was going to go home, and who knows for how long.

    As the Quarians say, "Through tides of light and shoals of dust, I will return to where I began. Keelah Se'lai."

    She just hoped that maybe, one day, fate would bring them back together again.

    Takes place after Arrival, and will likely run up to the end of Mass Effect 3 and beyond. No promises, though.

    Summary

    After Shepard's death, Ashley Williams drifted apart from the rest of the old crew. But when a familiar name shows up in her inbox, Ash realizes that the torch she'd carried for nearly two years is nowhere close to extinguished. When she receives a new assignment, she's also given the opportunity for a second chance.

    ...one name in particular stuck out, making something old and bittersweet tighten in her chest. Standing at the water’s edge on Virmire, joking with Kaidan about what a good vacation destination it would make. And his smile, brighter than a supernova.

    Summary

    Shona Shepard and Liara are forced to land on Thedas, where the Chantry gains access, not willingly, to Alliance and Asari technology as well as to the power of Dark Energy and makes the same mistake as the Temple of Athame, but Thedas isn't Thessia and secrets are not so long kept

    Summary

    Shepard and the Normandy Crew are tasked with safely transporting a very rich human back to the Citadel. When he hits on Shepard, she lies about having a boyfriend to avoid offending him and failing her mission. The Normandy Crew isn't at all surprised that she picked Garrus for this fake relationship. In fact, no one on the ship is convinced it's fake, except Garrus and Shepard themselves.

    Cue these two idiots trying to convince everyone that this is definitely fake and not at all real, and that warm, lovey feeling in their chests? Fake, too.

    Or is it?

    Summary

    Summary

    [A/N] In the flux of writer’s block and diaspora of story lines, so while I recover, I got to reading an old fanfic from my first foray into writing. Premise is interesting and plays with lots of tropes as well as builds new ones. Characters are young and grow older. Timeline of events, but not disclosed and definitely AU. Something to read while I’m working on ideas. Lots of origins for OCs, but don’t let that phase you. Read on.

    Summary

    In this version of the research, NIM has his beginnings and comes out as the Neural Imam Mechanist, but he is not quite the version in NIM and The Soul. Blasa has more background with Quoyle, and Thane has a seedier past in working with the Hanar and his xenophobia against humans, but Shepard breaks through to him before her death. N’ynnyaw from Arcturus Block also makes her debut in the version of Ninmah of Consort of War, which gets a bit on the dark, demonic side of things towards the end, and Feron has far more involvement than Quoyle would like. Overall, the schemes and detail were fun to write and though it’s entirely noncanonical, I very much enjoyed writing it and hope you will enjoy seeing how a story evolves. (The Altha also gets her origin from here.)

    Summary

    Book I — LOTHAIRAXL: RELOADED — (Chapters 1–39)
    In this retelling of the original Lothairaxl, toss aside what you know. Braith Shepard, Commander of the galactic unity, four years later after a Reaper War, is now chief of navarre—fleets of ships organized for supply and delivery for those disconnected by the broken relays of the galaxy. . .

    *See “Chapter 1: Author’s Note” for full synopses.*
    [A/N] Panos and PIIO will be reloaded. Working offline. Will post Panos when finished.

    Book II — PANOS — (Chapters 40–94)
    Drell from Kolyat’s past have taken up residence and reform in Lothairaxl. Braith and Casnar find more than just the secret lying in wait at the heart of the city. Caught in each other’s arms sharing a kiss against the cold of the Pool Gardens, Kine—former Dominga of the Panos of Citadel—attempts to abduct Braith for her assumed involvement in the grisly rearrangement of his cohort outside Drazan. . .

    Book III — PIIO — (Chapters 95–#)
    Braith survives Kine by the rescue of Krios’s son, Kolyat, only to find waiting for her at Nolyn the transplanted energy of Pio and The Many. They wait for her, and as Karin Chakwas watches, ensnare Braith. Casnar falls into the shimmer. . .

    Summary

    When drell assassin, Thane Krios, came aboard the Normandy, he had one intention: to seek a worthy death. He believed that Shepard had offered him that. He had been spending his final months reviewing his life—his past, his failures, his deeds. He had thought he had nothing left to live for.

    He would find out that he was wrong, for he had just found someone who could give him—not death—but a reason to live.

    -This story plays through the events of ME2, detailing the Thane/Shepard romance throughout, with the intention of becoming a two-part series which rewrites the events of ME3 and Thane’s fate.-

    Summary

    Mindoir, a quiet agricultural community and humanity's footstep into the Attican Traverse. For Lachlan Shepard, it represents home, the closeness of family and friends, a place he can be himself and grow into the person he is to become. For Kaidan Alenko, it represents a place in which he can retreat from the memories of his past, a place to recover, perhaps start over anew.

    Cadenza: A moment in a musical piece where an instrumentalist or singer is given the opportunity to play a solo freely and with artistic license to go outside of a rigid tempo or rhythm. In this instance, the canon-divergence that leads to these two meeting.

    Summary

    True soldiers make tough calls and face the consequences; Jane Shepard is no exception. After turning herself in for her actions in the Bahak system, she finds comfort in the friendship of James Vega. As the war presses on Shepard and James struggle with their feelings for one another.

    Ignores the Citadel DLC "romance" because it made me feel gross and I can't picture my paragon Shep ever doing that.
    I took an unscheduled break in between chapters 9 and 10... I didn't mean for it to last three years but I'm back to posting weekly. Story is finished, new chapters go up on Fridays.
