    Summary

    Her masters broke her until she was rescued. Her biotics were uncontrollable until her mentor guided her. Her soul was shattered until her first love mended it. Her compass was broken until her new family taught her how to live again.

    She was a broken girl from Mindoir.

    Until she became the Savior of the Galaxy.

    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    Shortly after defeating Saren tragedy strikes as Shepard dies over Alchera. Haunted by grief and a ring - Garrus flees the Citadel to as far away he could from his memories of her - before finding himself settling into the moniker of Archangel.

Two years fly by in a flash as those who know worry about the inevitable Reaper invasion.

    Shepard returns to struggle with how Garrus changed, how her parent's divorce wounded her, and her friend's having to live in a galaxy without her for two years.

    Summary

    Death was not a new concept for Laryna Shepard. When it came for her, she only regretted not living more. Now that she's been given a second chance, she'll do whatever she has to in stopping the Collectors and their masters, and she'll live on her own terms instead of those imposed by Cerberus, the Council or the Alliance. Loyalty is a tricky business, and will pull our hero unforgivingly as she attempts to save the galaxy from itself.
    First person PoV, mostly Shepard's, though others are added for flavor. Especially Garrus.
    Commander Laryna Shepard: biotic, Earth born, hero
    Shakarian

    Summary

    Commander Jane Shepard, Saviour of the Citadel, First human Spectre and Captain of the once Normandy SR1, now newly built SR2 had the job of figuring out why so many human colonists in the Terminus Systems are disappearing.

    The team she needs to build for this suicide mission had a varied amount of members, but the Drell Assassin stands out from them all, is it his talent of breaking one's neck so easily? Or is it because Shepards finds herself falling for him?

    Summary

    Commander Shepard has been a household name since Torfan. She’s untouchable by her own means, a light of potential soaring towards near godhood the longer she stays in the limelight. But it takes her saving the Citadel before anyone worth a damn decides to ask who Shepard has if she’s untouchable. Who bats for her when the galaxy turns its back on her.

    The answer’s simple— the same man stubborn enough to see the Butcher of Torfan and ask her if all the death was worth it. Anderson never did have a good sense of danger.

    OR:

    Shepard and Anderson through the years, right up until the very end.

    Summary

    Garrus takes a rocket to the side of his face

     

    Her vision tunnels and all she can see, all she can focus on, is the gunship, on her need to get rid of it, to kill Tarak, the idiot batarian sitting behind the controls. Her body streaks like a shooting star, fast and bright, turning to pure biotic energy, solidifying on the other end, one fist smashing straight through the shields and glass of the gunship, fingers stopping just short of Tarak’s chest.

    (For a second, she’s back on Elysium, the unnamed batarian dying the second her fists collide with his chest, bone crunching beneath the force of her charge. She almost hesitates, almost stops herself, almost -
    The image of Garrus is much more raw.)

    genesis shepard, her relationships, and the evolution of her biotics.

    Summary

    What if the events of ME2 had happened before ME1?

    "The propaganda machine of the Alliance called it "A Resounding Success" but the reality of the battle of Torfan wasn't so glorious. Lieutenant Magna Shepard led many men and women to their deaths in order to ensure victory against the hostile Batarians.
    Her trial was kept a secret but despite High Command's efforts, word of her actions filtered through and five years later, Shepard walked out of prison as the Butcher of Torfan. She was exactly the kind of person the pro-human organization Cerberus was looking for to solve the mystery of the disappearing human colonies out in the Terminus Systems."
