    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

    The Crucible destroyed the Reapers. But the battle is not over.

    With all technology damaged and the governments on Earth in chaos after the Reaper War, warlords, gangs and strongmen seek to establish their own control of the planet. Above its blue skies, a severely damaged Citadel floats helplessly, its citizens under dual threat from Cerberus remnants and starvation.

    Only one person can restore order and peace to the Sol System. But Shepard is dead… right?

    A Post-ME 3 fic, exploring the aftermath of the destroy ending. A bit of a slow burn, but plenty of familiar faces will be showing up (tags added when they do).

    Comments and feedback welcome!

    Summary

    me·tem·psy·cho·sis
    /ˌmedəmˌsīˈkōsəs,məˌtemsəˈkōsəs/
    noun
    the supposed transmigration at death of the soul of a human being or animal into a new body of the same or a different species.

     

    Set after the events of Mass Effect 3.

    It has been four months since the Reapers were destroyed. All technology has crumbled, and much of Earth is a pile of ash and rubble. The famed Commander Shepard has not been seen since before the final assault to the Citadel. After months of radio silence, a message has finally gone through to her famous ship, The Normandy, and her crew has begun making their way back to Earth. Liara struggles to cope with the fact that her bondmate- her love, might have perished in the fight. With no contact for a month, many assume the worse. Garrus tries to step up in Shepard's place, but tensions rise as rumors of a new enemy come to fruition. EDI and the Geth are seemingly inactive, but not totally destroyed.

    When Shepard's body is found by an old friend, things aren't as they seem. There are other parties at work, and nobody is sure if they are with them or against them.

    Summary

    Shepard wakes up in bed with a strange man. Her hair is cut and dyed. She has scars she doesn’t remember. Her home on the Pacific with Kaidan and their daughter doesn’t exist. Instead of being hailed Human Councilor, she's being called an Alliance traitor. The once-peaceful galaxy is ar war. Kaidan, who should be her soft place to land, is now a bitter adversary, and her friends are nowhere to be found.

    Trapped in a brutal timeline, Shepard must do the impossible to return home: steal part of a secret Mass Relay. As renegade memories start to lock her in place, it's a fight against time and deadly enemies. Will it take the ultimate sacrifice to escape a fate worse than death?

    Summary

    Hey Commander,

    We’re on our way back to Earth. Not for you; you’re definitely dead. I said we should find a beach somewhere and retire, but no one ever listens to me. Garrus and Liara said we’re going to Earth because that’s what you would want. Which I guess means it’s kind of for you. If I can get the Normandy off of Sur’Kesh. I mean, I can definitely get her off of Sur’Kesh. After everyone else fixes her.

    Oh, by the way; Garrus is an asshole now. You know how he always had that stick up his ass? Yeah, now it’s a club. A big one. I don’t know how he fits it up there when he’s not using it to beat everyone into his way of thinking. The only person he’s afraid to use it on is Liara, and I’m pretty sure that’s because he knows she’ll put him in stasis if he gets too out of line. He’s pissed that you died. Pissed that we’re stranded. Honestly, he’s just pissed about everything.

    Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m kind of pissed at you, too. You’re Commander fucking Shepard. You’re not supposed to die. Permanently, anyway.

    If things work out we should be able to stop by in six months or so. Clear your calendar.

    See ya,
    The Best Pilot in the Galaxy

    ****
    A Post-ME3 Shakarian fic. The beginning is more focused on the whole crew as I am working through all of the feelings I have after playing the whole series for the first time! There will be some AU things explored later in the fic and these two will get their happy ending, they absolutely deserve it. [Will be updated weekly or sooner!]

    Summary

    She’s thought about this specific moment a lot. Kissing him. The first time she’d considered it was after they’d reclaimed Omega together, but to do it so soon after witnessing Nyreen’s death didn’t sit right with her. Then she’d thought about it when he came to see her afterwards in Purgatory, but letting the good General Petrovsky go instead of draining the life out of him as she’d wished to still left a bad taste in her mouth, so she didn’t kiss him then, either.

    Then he’d gone down with the Reapers and it was all she could think about.

    Summary

    He wasn't built for hope. Turians didn't have much use for the blind optimism of the desperate and the foolish when fatalism would serve just as well without all the self-delusion. Hope was a left-handed turn when he was made of rights. But Shepard put it there, grafted it into him like new flesh, and now he was an amalgam of her hope and his worn-out despair, asking which was the heavier weight in his chest as he looked at the Reaper construct wearing her face. (Post ME-3 Control Ending).

    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.
