    Summary

    So! A year has passed and now it's October again and Oc-tober started this whole thing for me so here I am again.
    The prompt list can be found here: https://oc-growth-and-development.tumblr.com/post/662411584438730752/tis-the-season-for-october-2021-as-always-these#notes

    I'll be dipping back into my Mercenary!AU because that's the verse I'm writing with my rp partner. That said, last year I took the AU as far as I could on my own, now that the RP buddy is back, we've made some changes. I'm not retconning anything as of this moment, just take the timelines of the previous installments worth a grain of salt.
    All that said, I cannot promise I will upload every single day but I won't miss prompts. I might combine a few, we'll see.

    Summary

    The Krogans say that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. Remix of the canon with OC and AU spanning ME1-3.

    Featuring an original past of a ‘survivor’ female Shepard as a drala'fa ('the ignored') from Omega. Once a druglord's slave, Jane met a strange drell one evening that changed her life. After enlisting in the Alliance and burying her origins, Jane gained a reputation as a closed-off paragade with secrets stemming from her checkered past, now struggling with visions caused by the beacon on Eden Prime. Her affinity for aliens, and one renegade turian in particular, becomes a problem among human-centric politicians as humanity gains a foothold in the galaxy. As time and the fate of all organic life hangs in the balance, her entanglement with the drell who changed her life further complicates matters.

    The story explores multiple motifs, including a deeper look at drell, a character study of Thane, a noir loss of innocence story for Garrus/Archangel, extended turian culture and history, and a close read of Liara's transformation into the Shadowbroker. Includes expanded lore, religion, and language within the Mass Effect Universe.

    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

    An expedition to the other side of the Milky Way Galaxy goes south rapidly, leaving a small sect of mankind isolated to their own devices. They're without help or word from Earth and settled on a borderline inhospitable rock. What they're left with is ancient ruins of those that had inhabited their new planet long before them. With little alternative, they rebuild themselves inside and out to live long enough to explore what lies beyond the horizon. They could not predict how the rest of civilized space will treat them and how the changes they've made to themselves will play into the future.

    Summary

    It was the year 2157, and humanity had touched the stars at last. Gazing up into the dark abyss, it was hard to believe there may be life on other planets. Intelligent life, capable of building great cities and spaces. Those that knew her, knew that Amelia Karsten-Shepard was one such idealist.

    When humanity does make contact with another species, the incident is bloody and brutal, and Amelia is ripped from her familiar normal into an alien cell as a prisoner of war, faced with an enemy that looks, thinks, and feels nothing like her.

    Summary

    After working undercover for so long, Kaesso Olymdas had often wondered what would happen if he were compromised. What torture would his captors concoct in an attempt to draw out his secrets? What information did they think they could obtain? How long would it last? Or would it last at all? Perhaps his enemy would deem him entirely expendable, wasting neither time nor resources on intelligence extraction.

    Despite all his pondering and preparation, nothing had prepared him for the pirate.

    Summary

    Its been three years after humanity's brief conflict with the turians. The governments from both parties are ready to move on, but its people aren't.
    One of those is a young, disgruntled, hot-headed veteran by the name of Walter Reilly, who is forced to serve alongside the same species that killed his friends and disfigured his face. Even with the warm welcome from the once hostile race, and a female turian keen on being his best friend, Walter has trouble putting the past to rest, which is exactly what some people want.

    Will he learn to adapt and coexist with his former enemies? Or will he finally turn into the wrathful monster everyone already thinks he is?

    Summary

    These are my entries for the "Shadow Broker Files" - a Mass Effect-themed prompt list for October created by Emrys_Ace (@mysticalenbyart on Twitter).

    Since I started late (3 October), I will be posting from Day 3, and may go back to fill in my entries for the other days (or not - I'm treating this as a fun way to write some Mass Effect one-shots to "get out of my system)."

    Special thanks to Emrys_Ace for arranging the prompt list - of course, I'd recommend checking everyone else's works using the prompt list!

    Even though I'm writing these entries for fun, I also greatly appreciate any and all constructive feedback!

    Of course, Mass Effect belongs to BioWare and Electronic Arts. I do not own nor am affiliated with the official Mass Effect series nor its creators blah blah blah.
