    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

    What if Thane knew he was going to meet another Siha, but did not know when? Thane has a vision on the night he kills the final one responsible for Irikah's murder. Arashu comes to him and tells him he has another chance. There will be another Siha. He must not fail.

    After two years, he has waited long enough to go to the sea. On the night he believes he will go to Kalahira's shores, a beautiful warrior finds him and offers him a gift. Arashu has given him a new path. We all must walk the paths we are given.

    A slow burn where Thane and Shepard have a unique connection over a secret she has kept hidden from everyone in her life.

    This is the first of three, they will go through an interpretation the events of Mass Effect 2 & 3 (more faithful to canon, timeline wise, especially, in 2, with some bigger changes in 3 (Thane lives).

    (Any Explicit chapters - I'll note in this summary, otherwise it's generally T to slight M)

    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

    Chapter 6 has arrived; Chapter 7 is coming!

    Where life is not so unjustly taken from a hero who has more than earned the breath in their lungs and the love in their arms.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.

    Summary

    After helping Shepard stop the Collectors, Thane continues to face his mortality as he battles Kepral’s Syndrome. But a ray of hope has touched his life. He and Shepard have agreed that they will accept the time they have left and spend it together—until the time they thought they had is snatched away from them.

    And then, the Reapers.

    Though many circumstances are beyond his control, Thane is once again left to make a choice: whether to embrace death and the end of times, or to fight for his life—and the life of his siha.

    -This story details events of ME3, with the intention of keeping Thane alive and inserting him back into the story. I recommend reading my story 'Life Support' first, as it is the first book in the series.-

    Summary

    When Electra Shepard wakes from a coma following the destruction of the Reapers, she quickly realizes her happy ending is much more complicated than anyone could have imagined. No one knows how Shepard survived firing the crucible, much less how she is pregnant with Garrus Vakarian's baby. Thrust into the complex politics of rebuilding the galaxy, Electra and Garrus struggle to make their own happiness last while they search for answers.

    Meanwhile, new forces of darkness threaten the galactic peace the crew of the Normandy fought so hard to secure in light of strange discoveries.

    Summary

    Shepard's built a career on the impossible, but there's no way she could come back from the dead again. Kaidan isn't so sure. Is it grief or faith making him so unwilling to let go? He's got a job to do to help rebuild, and he can use that to find her...dead or alive.

    [Paragon sole survivor/spacer Shepard, Destroy ending. I may add more characters later. Grief can make you question yourself in some difficult ways - folks with personal experience, this may get triggering for you, hard to say for sure while I'm writing this. I've been dealing with a lot the past two years. I like using this part of the quarian passphrase to the Flotilla as my title. It's hopeful.]

    Summary

    After leaving Horizon, Commander John Shepard has focused on recruiting the rest of his team. But when Miranda finds intel on what turns out to be a rogue Cerberus operation in a secluded part of the Traverse, he ends up with a new teammate he never expected - himself, from another timeline. It turns out Shep is no clone, though; she’s her own woman, and though they share backgrounds as Mindoir survivors and heroes of the Skyllian Blitz, there’s just as much setting them apart as there is that proves they’re both the Commander Shepard. Under the care of the familiar faces of her crew that nonetheless isn’t her crew, she adopts the identity of John’s long-lost sister, and tries to find her place in a galaxy she knows and yet seems like it might forever be foreign.

    She’s a force to be reckoned with, and though her own universe has been destroyed by the hubris of the rogue operation, she’s determined to save his own right alongside him - and to reunite him with the man he misses the most from his own original crew... even as she tries not to think about just how close she and this Garrus are becoming - or how close she wants to become.

    Summary

    It’s mostly canon; however, the story will evolve in a different direction. All major events will still happen, but in this version, Shepard’s biotic powers are hard to control after Cerberus brings her back to life.
    And if she doesn’t learn how to control them, she might kill herself and everyone around her in the process. Of course, the main reason she overextends her biotics is Garrus.

    In the aftermath of the Reaper War, the Normandy and her crew find themselves stranded on an uncharted world, uncertain about the fate of the rest of the galaxy they've left behind… including Shepard. For Liara T'Soni, leaving Petra Shepard behind means being burdened with a grief she thought she'd never have to endure again, when the future is so full of unknowns and the only comfort she can find, for now, is in the memories of her bondmate.
