    Summary

    An AU Mass Effect. How will two Shepard twins, set on separate paths, be changed by their differing experiences and relationships? Can they still work together to save the galaxy?

    This series features twins John and Sera. John Shepard follows the more standard in-game main story path, while Sera Shepard weaves in and out of John’s arc as she progresses through particular side missions/plot points. Eventually the story will span all three ME games and perhaps beyond. It will remain generally within the realm of being canon-compliant, but will diverge when and where the characters demand it!

    Tip: Read the prologue if you want background/setup info; skip it if you want to dive straight into the narrative.

    Summary

    Close on the heels of the ending of Mass Effect 3, while the Normandy is undergoing repairs, Garrus tries to understand Shepard's choice to increasingly, mysteriously, and infuriatingly isolate herself after Thessia, and he receives a message that may provide some answers.

    Includes some canon-specific dialogue as well as references from the Extended Cut ending as well as the From Ashes and Citadel DLCs.

    Summary

    There was no physical pain that could compare to the pain of watching his best friend die and knowing it was his fault. Seeing her alive had been more than he’d ever dared hope for, even once Project Lazarus had been explained to him. More than he had let himself want.

    The problem is that he doesn’t know how to tell her any of that.

    Summary

    How a orphan from the slums of earth came from nothing to become a defender of everything. Logan John Shepard rose from the slums of Earth and became the First human Spectre. Will follow his time before the Alliance and maybe a bit afterwards

    Just because someone is a good guy does not mean they are a nice guy. Cold, calculating and brutal. Logan follows his own code which is "The punishment must fit the crime". The only question is the galaxy ready for a human Spectre with his own form of brutal justice?

    Later tags to be added, I don't want to give too much away. If you are after Pure smut look elsewhere, while this does have sex scenes in it, it is not the main basis of the story. The rating is what it is as I don't want to get into trouble for some of the war scenes

    Summary

    Shepard had spent her life running from the past. Always moving forward, never looking back. But after waking up on a slab of metal in a Cerberus facility, her past is all she has to ground herself in a sea of insanity, uncovering horrors even Cerberus renounced. With so many knives aimed at her back, at least she had a sniper covering her 6.

    Summary

    An eye for an eye? Fuck that. She'll give Garrus Sidonis' head on a platter, if he wants it. A life for half Garrus' face, for the shadows in his eyes, for the way his voice cracks when he talks about Omega. That sounds like a fair deal to Shepard.

    (Before and after Sidonis' death, the Butcher considers the Archangel.)

    Summary

    She could hear the people whispering behind her back.
    They called her many different things. Dumb, inexperienced, heartless. But the one that always stuck the most was another.

    Summary

    “I remember Jack,” you seethe, the words oozing out of you like black liquorish. He stares at you, uncomprehending, but you know the truth and you’re going to make him squirm. “I wrote those dossiers. Rasa told you it was her but I did the legwork, and I know what Jack was. That’s why you like us so much, isn’t it?” You barely hold a strand of hysterical laugher. “You get to find broken things and fix them.”

    Summary

    Shepard has gone through a lot. From a kid left alone in a dark world after the death of his parents and friends on Mindoir, to his victory against the enemy on Torfan, and to his ultimate fight against the Reapers, he had battled against truly terrible odds.

    Shepard didn't like himself. Not really. Dealing with the ghosts of his past was hard enough without having to fight the present as well. Garrus, his truest friend, would help the soldier, but it wouldn't be until he met a certain Quarian named Tali that things would really start to change.

    Maybe she was the one that could heal his scars.

    At least he hoped.

     

    (Covers Pre-Mass Effect 1, all the way to Post-Mass Effect 3. I have changed a lot of things and though I will skip over parts you can expect this to be both a different adventure and both the same.)

    Summary

    I'm sick and bed-ridden and decided to write this short little blurb. My take on Garrus and Shep's first conversation once they reach the Normandy. There's no way those dumdums would not stop for a conversation before meeting in the gun batteries. I'm drugged up on cough medicine and I've done little to no proof reading or editing. I hope I added enough ANGST.
