    Summary

    Commander Shepard ended the Reaper War and their threat to galactic civilization. That much is certain. In the months following the end of the war, he and the crew of the Normandy grapple with the fallout of the decisions he made to bring salvation to the galaxy even as they navigate their new realities. Kaidan Alenko, his longtime friend and now devoted partner, has the impossible task of putting Shepard back together as the rest of the galaxy asks what he'll do next.

    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.

    Sometimes several hours after I post a chapter I come back and edit it again a smidge. If I decide to change anything big I leave a comment.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    Joker referred to it as their dick measuring contest.

    It was just harmless fun. They liked to work each other up, see who could catch the other out.

    They stopped doing it when Shepard got hurt and Garrus broke Alenko’s arm.

    Summary

    When it's her who says it, his name sounds almost like poetry.

    Or, as one reader put it, it's Garrus who has the voice kink in this one.

    Summary

    “Irikah had seen the laser dot of my scope on my target and threw herself in between us. It… it reminds me of what Shepard did.”

    “He didn’t deserve to be saved,” he hisses at the drell who responds with a thin, serene smile.

    “No. But you were.”

    Summary

    Shepard sent him away so she could run for the beam and save the galaxy, but Garrus Vakarian won't be left behind that easily.

    --

    I would do just about anything for her if she asked.

    Now, though, she's ordering me to sit on the sidelines for the most important mission of our lives, to wait around and hope she can handle whatever is up there on her own. I guess I've found the one thing I won't do for her.

    A good turian would follow a bad order from his commander, but I've never been a good turian. I'll be damned if I start being one now.

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Summary

    Officer Garrus Vakarian was finally making something good out of himself. He was a decent detective, an obedient son. Someone to be called "a good turian". It was just his luck to find himself bleeding in the corridors of the C-Sec-Academy with vivid hallucinations that simply couldn't be true.
    However, what if? - a worm of dread is writhing deep in his skull. What if it wasn't a hallucination? What if there was a chance of his memory being right?
    Still. It wasn't like a good turian would throw all of his life away, chasing some fever dream.
    But what would it say about him if he wouldn't even try to make things right...?

    A direct sequel to Reaching escape velocity.

    Summary

    At first, Commander Shepard was his mentor. He wanted to emulate her, to have loyal people follow him and work toward the greater good of the galaxy. After she came back from the dead and saved him on Omega, she became his closest friend. She was his confidant, someone who he could trust implicitly even if they disagreed.

    But he never expected a romantic relationship with Shepard.

    When Shepard suggested blowing off some steam together, he couldn’t resist despite the complications it entailed. It would be fun, a chance to relax with someone whom he respected and trusted. But Garrus found himself falling hard and fast for Shepard despite all his misgivings and self-doubts. The galaxy is on the precipice of all out war and Shepard becomes his anchor, his reason for becoming the turian he always wanted to be.

    Mostly Garrus POV ME1 through ME3. Post game content planned.

    Brooklyn-born Jane Shepard grew up in a home for orphaned daughters. Restless and full of potential, she is ready to tackle the world. When she meets a gang working to improve the lives of the forgotten and downtrodden, they offer Shepard a life full of purpose - and an escape from the heavy burdens and expectations placed upon her. Jane will learn one can never truly run away and what it truly takes to be the hero she wants to be. Kaidan Alenko, separated from his loving family, pushes his body and mind to their limits in a station on the edge of the Sol system. Finding solace in the oppressive "Brain Camp" with his peers, he learns what happens when you always put on a brave face and suppress your emotions to a boiling point and it all comes spilling out. After years of working through their traumas, they finally reach the heights they have always dreamed about. Closing themselves off to focus on their goals, they both set their life on a certain path. But as they first lay their eyes onto each other aboard the SSV Normandy - they question what they thought life had to offer them while chasing down a Galaxy-wide threat. Part 1 of a planned 5-part series that explores the relationship between Shepard and Kaidan.
