    Summary

    Garrus & Elle continue their adventure into Mass Effect 3! This one is a lot exciting and a lot heartbreaking, but it won't be exactly what you expect. Yes, I'm saying that the ending won't be canon because screw that. There's a lot more to come.

    **Not a standalone!** You'll probably be lost if you don't read the rest of the Rewrite the Stars series first.

    CW/TW: dark themes, tons of angst, graphic descriptions of violence/war, very graphic sex

    It's Bioware's sandbox!

    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, 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.

    Updates every few days, sometimes more frequently, with a chapter or two.
    Any explicit chapters will be noted here: 4

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the 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.

    it 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 complete sense if you haven't read The Null Room. there's also a decent amount of Shepard/Alenko angst, lingering in the background like swamp gas about to erupt at any moment, that won't potentially make a great deal of sense either.

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

    Summary

    Wrex's contract into Fist leads him to a new opportunity with a Spectre. He never really thought about any relationships or mates due to the genophage but he's drawn to Shepard. She's a fierce warrior who doesn't take crap from anyone. Their relationship remains platonic but it's a struggle with their sexual tension that could never bloom. Her love for Liara makes things difficult as well.

    Summary

    There is no such thing as a second chance, not with something like this.

    At least, that’s what I thought before I woke up in Mass Effect for the second time.

    I screwed up, badly, the first time. I was cocky, over-confident, and damn sure none of this was real. But as I watched friend after friend die because of my choices, I couldn’t convince myself that this was a dream anymore.

    But now I am back. And I am NOT losing anyone, not if I can help it.

    ** Join my OC, Ella King, in her SECOND journey to change the course of the Mass effect games. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Ella was transported to the world of Mass Effect on a random day in 2021. Originally not taking it too seriously, Ella fails spectacularly at everything. Now, she’s been given a second chance to save her friends and the Universe. Will she succeed?**

    — Warning, Updates will be slightly slow as I’m in college and trying to finish another fic, but there will at least be a chapter a month! —

    Summary

    “Steve.”

    The Lieutenant doesn’t skip a beat, still watching him with an easy expression on his face. “Yeah?”

    John cocks a brow and spares him a playful side-eyed glance. “You’re staring.”

    “You’re pretty.”

    Summary

    After what feels like an eternity of death and anguish, a routine stop at the Citadel puts Shepard in the uncomfortable position of taking a break - and breaking it off with an old friend - while wrestling with the weight of becoming a galactic symbol for prosperity. Meanwhile, Garrus Vakarian seeks information on his family. However, his dive into their whereabouts has led him into political blackmail with the Hierarchy, who seek to reunify the restless turian masses evicted from their homeworld through the elimination of their scapegoat: Garrus's human Commander. Against their will, the two find themselves together at the brink of reigniting an old interspecies war - one that puts the entire galaxy in jeopardy, and challenges the unfamiliar feelings developing between them.

    Summary

    Kaidan focuses on survival. He focuses on Joker. The fact that someone's depending on him to get them out of this alive. He doesn't think of the piles of rocks outside their shelter. He doesn't think about the collection of dog tags he's put in a bag. He doesn't think about the one rock pile and the broken helmet sitting on top of it. He can't, or he just might break.

    Also known as, what if Kaidan and Joker crashed on Alchera with Shepard and how the course of the universe is changed for the better.

    Summary

    It was an insane idea, really, to throw Commander Sebastian Shepard into politics. She barely had any formal education, nonetheless any experience in the world of the rich and powerful. However, every butterfly she’s stepped on culminated in the fight against the Reapers and all eyes are on her. Now her connections, past, and enemies create a volatile mixture as she navigates a new world at the end of the galaxy.

    (This is gonna be a long one, so please keep your arms and legs inside the fic at all times.)

    Summary

    The hand withdraws from her chest and his hips still. “We can stop now and go back to sleep, get a bit more rest.” He means it, too— always leaving a way out.

    “Or…?” Evelyn’s breath hitches at the mere imagination of the alternative.

    “Or…,” his mouth closes in, teeth nipping at her earlobe, “they can enjoy the show.”

    Summary

    The instant look of pure, unadulterated happiness on Wynton's face shoots the biotic straight through the heart. And just like the first time, he notes the way Wynton's eyes crinkle at the corners, a strange mix of disbelief and elation like he's been given the very thing he was convinced he'd never have. 

    It’s another memory Kaidan tucks away for later.
