    Summary

    As Commander Shepard slowly rehabilitates and settles into her first year of marriage with Liara post-Reaper War, she grows tired of the galactic community painting her to be some kind of hero, feeling like anything but. As part of her healing process Diana Allers has agreed to help her write an autobiography, but Shepard has trouble opening up about her past. With Liara's career as a scientific researcher at the University of Illium in full swing, Shepard tries to find a new place for herself in the galaxy she helped save.

    Summary

    Everyone knows the story.
    How Commander Shepard destroyed the reapers.
    How he almost lost his life for it.
    After six months in a medically induced coma, he finally beat the odds again, making a full recovery and going to pass on his knowledge to the next generation at the Vancouver Ascension Facility, along with his lover and fellow Spectre Kaidan Alenko.

    What people didn’t know was Kaidan’s quiet despair, wondering if the man he’d nearly lost twice would finally slip away.
    Or Shepard’s struggle with lost time, disability, and nightmares of things half remembered.
    They don’t see the struggle behind closed doors between two men who love each other fiercely and fear each other’s loss.

    But two years after John’s ultimate choice, things are good. Stable, anyway. They work, they go home, they share life and love.

    Until unknown assailants try to blow it all away.

    Summary

    "See Ashley? Mind over matter. Now...I'll take Harbinger triple burger with the..." She trails off, clicking her tongue as she reads over the menu, which was printed on physical paper for some reason.

    "Why not? Salad."

    "Same, gunny?"

    "Sure," Ashley chokes out.

    "One with a Thessian greens side salad, and one with Earth greens. Earth is no-eezo. Fish and chips, pet?"

    Liara shivers under the weight of the word.

    Is the air thinner, or has the buzzing heat wrapping around her bones from Kate's possessiveness just made breathing harder? She reaches for her neck before realizing she's not wearing a collar.

    "Yes please," Liara mumbles, lifting her eyes and favoring the waitress with a smile. "We're so close to Earth, after all. Fish and chips sounds lovely."

    "It'll be out soon," the waitress promises, before using her omnitool's forger to burn her contact information into the side of Ashley's water glass. Ashley stares at it numbly, like it was a grenade and not a proposition.

    Kate pats her protege's shoulder.

    "There, there. Heard you were doing spot checks on stuff coming in from Omega. Confiscated anything interesting lately?"

    Summary

    ...He looked like Commander Everett Shepard, Hero of Elysium, Alliance Golden Boy, Savior of the Citadel, first human Spectre.
     
    And he was none of these things.
     
    He'd tried to be, once -- recently, even. It had been only a few months since the admittedly ill-advised, harebrained scheme to steal Commander Shepard's identity, get his access codes, steal the Normandy and…
     
    And do… something.

    --
    After the plan to steal Commander Shepard's life spectacularly backfired, his clone is left struggling to pick up the pieces and figure out what it takes to be his own person.

    Some things are easier said than done.

    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 war is over and Shepard's still alive.
    Except she doesn't really understand what war everyone is talking about, or who half of these people are... The last thing she does remember is the Normandy blowing up over Alchera. Which apparently was a few years ago, and things had changed a lot during that time. She doesn't even know which bothers her more: that everyone wants her to be someone she's not, or that Garrus has been strangely distant ever since she woke up...

    TL;DR: Shepard survives but loses all her memories since her death in ME2. Shakarian angst and regular angst, all mixed up together into a nice hurt/comfort cocktail with a spicy addition of some philosophical dilemmas surrounding Shep's amnesia.

    Summary

    "I would like to be the air
    that inhabits you for a moment
    only. I would like to be that unnoticed
    & that necessary."
    - Margaret Atwood, "Variation on the Word Sleep"

    The galaxy is forever changed after Commander Jane Shepard destroyed the Reapers. But it isn't just the galaxy that was changed: its inhabitants were too, some for better, others for worse. Most people don't know what happened to the commander, not even her boyfriend, Major Kaidan Alenko. What he does know is this: no matter how far away the two of them are, the two of them will rebuild their lives together.

    Summary

    "If anyone in the entire galaxy deserved to enjoy this victory, it was Shepard. And I know that she also deserves to finally have peace, but...for as long as I knew her, the only peace she ever wanted for herself was with you."

    Liara has spent the last eight months helping the galaxy to rebuild in the aftermath of the Reaper War, until a surprise visit from an old friend changes everything. It would appear that what Miranda can do once, she can certainly do twice, and the renewed promise of a life together brings Shepard and Liara closer to happiness than they have ever been before. But Shepard's return also draws the attention of a new enemy; one who will stop at nothing to see the heroes of the Normandy ground beneath the feet of those they worked so tirelessly to save. And as Commander Shepard knows all too well...there is no rest for the weary.
