    Summary

    Captain Anderson added me to his crew this year. I can say there is no greater honor than working with him. He’s damn near legendary in my books. There’s a rumor he was considered for Spectre status, which is above and beyond anything any other human has done for us. I hope to learn a lot from him.

    Rating will go up later. A collection of journal entries and logs of Shepard's personal thoughts and encounters as she deals with "the squids".

    Summary

    If you were to ask anyone to describe Storm Shepard the only ones who would have something bad to say are the ones who’ve crossed her. It was hard not to like her, she was compassionate, caring, and wanted to help those around her. In the beginning Normandy’s crew would’ve said the same, but if you tried to use her soft nature against her you were in for a big surprise.

    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

    After his deadly decision at Fehl Prime, Lieutenant James Vega runs off to a shady bar in Omega to numb his sorrows. But a personal request from Admiral Anderson has him swallowing his pride--hiding his pain--and running security for Commander Shepard's house arrest. When the Reapers hit Earth and they escape together, he learns every heroic thing he's heard about Jane Shepard is true, and they share more in common than the grim heart of a soldier.

    Summary

    Garrus isn't impressed by Jimmy's boasting. Jimmy issues a challenge.

    Tumblr prompt by officious-seeing-eye-bitch: James Vega could most definitely beat Garrus in arm wrestling. I’m not sorry.

    Summary

    Summary

    Andrew Shepard lost a lot of people in a short time, and each of them took a part of him with them. He was called many things: Commander, the renegade with a kind heart, the Ammo Master, but most important to him, friend.

    Summary

    To most, Andrew Shepard is a ruthless hardass. He’s sarcastic, has no regard for other people, and had a stature he used to intimidate everyone around him. If you asked the crew of the Normandy they would give you a completely different answer. At one point they may have given you the same answer as anyone else,now they know better.

    Summary

    Summary: Wake up, go to work, sleep. It wasn't exactly the life C-Sec officer Nellus Tragen wanted but it's the one he's got. Docking bay D-24 might as well be his second home for as much time as he spends there. Of course, finding himself guardian and protector to a teenaged human girl utterly alone in the hell that is the Reaper War has a way of changing things up a bit.

    Excerpt: “Stop!” Nellus Tragen shouted from the confines of his bed before rolling over, desperately clinging to the silence as long as he still could, knowing it was just a matter of time before-

    His discarded alarm started to beep, the sound steadily progressing in volume until it was buzzing insistently against the wall it had hit.

    Same shit, different day... with the ever-so-subtle addition of Reapers, that is.

    Summary

    Cute Samantha Traynor meets the Renegades Jane and Jennifer Shepard to learn how to fire a gun and what's necessary to stand a galactic war. Dealing with the freaks include smut and strong language. The poor Specialist is becoming a little "junior" marine and gets to know the Shepards better than she ever imagined. The story does not follow the events in ME 3. Partially AU with clones and new discoveries.

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    Summary:
    As the greatest war the galaxy ever faced loomed on the horizon, few believed the Reapers would come. Garrus Vakarian had been named as a Special Advisor to the Primarch of Palaven, and he had sworn to do whatever he could to prepare his people.

    When the Reapers came, he stood on the front line. Ready to die for the cause.

    Excerpt:
    His omnitool pinged again, louder this time in a priority alert. Garrus brought up the screen and froze. The plates in his other hand fell and shattered on the floor much like life as they knew it was about to, as well.

    It had happened.
