    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

    Miranda Lawson has done it before, so she can surely do it again.
    The Alliance found a lot of leftover tech in the Citadel and at least one relic has Miranda's attention. She has a working theory, and if she's right, her friend, Jane Shepard, isn't done with this life.

    Summary

    ‘I… don’t think I want to go back to the Normandy.’

    ‘Alright,’ Steve said slowly. ‘No one’s going to make you do that. If anyone deserves a break, it’s you.’

    ‘What if it’s not a break, though? What if I just… stopped?’ Isaac watched Steve’s face carefully, expecting him to be angry or disappointed. Retiring felt too much like giving up, but when Isaac thought about going back to the Normandy, going back to being Commander Shepard… he didn’t want that. He couldn’t do it. They wanted to just be Isaac, nothing more.

    Summary

    Commander Jane Shepard, Saviour of the Citadel, First human Spectre and Captain of the once Normandy SR1, now newly built SR2 had the job of figuring out why so many human colonists in the Terminus Systems are disappearing.

    The team she needs to build for this suicide mission had a varied amount of members, but the Drell Assassin stands out from them all, is it his talent of breaking one's neck so easily? Or is it because Shepards finds herself falling for him?

    The past has a way of coming back to bite you when you least expect it, and Kaidan has a lot more past than he's mentioned.

    Summary

    Alone in the captain's quarters was not the kind of sparring he'd had in mind, but Garrus was more than happy to oblige the Commander's wishes. It even came with a sweet little side effect afterward.

    Summary

    Miranda had so many regrets. There were so many things she wished she’d done differently, while she still had the chance.
    Most of all, she wished she’d said the three little words that Shepard deserved more than anything to hear.

    Summary

    Shepard rejects the Catalyst's curated options. When the apparent ghost of Legion comes to her aid, she entrusts both the galaxy's fate--and her own--to him. She is rewarded with a life where she kept her promise to Garrus. Yet questions persist regarding the Crucible; finding the answers will require fighting Terra Prima fascists, reconnecting the Geth Consensus, and (maybe) getting married.

    "Remember, Shepard-Commander: The first thing a god masters is herself."

    A post-ME3 story exploring new mysteries, disability, and romance for Shepard.

    Citadel Arc [Ch 1-30]: Various Normandy Ensemble appearances. Despite the scramble to reactivate the mass relays and growing unrest in the Sol system, a few bosh'tets manage to date & fall in love as Shakarian pair builds to Shalibrations throuple.

    Tour to Rannoch [Ch 31-?]: A loosely episodic journey to Rannoch as the Normandy crew works to activate mass relays, check on colonies--and for Shepard to reconnect to the Geth Consensus to find answers.

    *Featuring art by Alan M. Capes (seealandraw) [Ch.7+20], The Pixel Agora (thepixelagora) [Ch.11], and Clara Dapitan (chaaistheanswer) [Ch.30]

    Summary

    The last thing that Shepard sees is the fire.

    She didn’t even expect to get that far, truthfully.

    Sitting there with Anderson, right after she…...right after she shot him…..looking out of the Citadel….Shepard had thought that would be the end.

    Not the perfect ending, because there’s so much more that she wants to do, but if she had to die there, on the Citadel, that would have been when Shepard would have preferred to do it.
