    Summary

    It's been 11 years since the Crucible was fired in the final moments of that most desperate of battles above a burning Earth. A 'phased-spectrum tightbeam dark-matter pulse,' was the official description; a mass-relay-driven energy burst that destroyed the Reaper control signal and the Sovereign-class Reapers that were broadcasting it, leaving the smaller platforms and husks leaderless and directionless. It won them the day, and eventually, allowed them to drive the Reapers to the brink of defeat. Now the threat is all but extinguished, save for isolated pockets of husks and Destroyers. The mass relays have been destroyed, many beyond repair. The Citadel hangs above Earth. The Sol system has become a new galactic hub, the staging ground for a Federated Galactic Republic that seeks to unify the galaxy under one flag. Sybilla Shepard, former Earth Systems Alliance Navy Commander, biotic commando, and first human Spectre, leads a team through clusters and systems cut off and thought lost to the Reapers a decade ago, searching for signs of life.
    She knows the Normandy is out there, somewhere, and that her crew - that Liara - is alive.
    But so is Harbinger.

    Summary

    In the year 2175, humans have been a council species for ten years and quickly become a main stay in Citadel holdings. Salarian art dealer, Ropon Lau, is currently having an infestation with the species left overs. A human duct rat currently haunts not only his work space, but his mental space as well. And it's getting old fast.

    When the human girl shows a great promise as an artist, Lau will take a great interest in her development. As the two grow alongside each other as people, hopefully they can grow to be more than protégé and mentor to each other. And maybe this human child can help lift the weight of half a lifetime of regret of the salarian's shoulders...

    Summary

    Set a year before the events of Mass Effect 1, Detective Vakarian bungles an assignment and is instructed to attend a 'Community Awareness' class. A 'yoh-gah' class. He has no clue what yoga is, but he somehow ends up partnered with an Alliance soldier named Shepard who's on her first Citadel posting. Things get far more awkward, competitive, and a whole lot hotter than he would have ever expected. All in all - he decides it was definitely a successful community awareness experience.

    Somehow a Shakarian yoga AU came up in a discussion on the Calibrations discord and some enthusiastic people were surveyed for ideas to throw into it. Thanks for the encouragement y'all!
