    Summary

    With Sovereign defeated, the galaxy can rest, but only for a moment, as the Reapers still lurk the borders of the galaxy. Among the Normandy crew, two souls grew close with each other, but before they could join as one, an unknown enemy separated them, claiming the life of one, leaving the other sunk in grief... or so they thought.

    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?

    Summary

    Everything was perfect. Saren was defeated. Sovereign fell from the sky. They'd survived it all and discovered something more... in each other. And then it all fell apart. Shepard took the rest of the team to investigate the continuing geth sighting. C-Sec obligations forced Garrus to stay behind... And when she'd needed him most, he wasn't there to watch her six. The love of his life died over Alchera and the galaxy came crashing down around him. An avenging spirit emerged that day. He called himself: Archangel.

    Summary

    Her masters broke her until she was rescued. Her biotics were uncontrollable until her mentor guided her. Her soul was shattered until her first love mended it. Her compass was broken until her new family taught her how to live again.

    She was a broken girl from Mindoir.

    Until she became the Savior of the Galaxy.

    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.

    *casual thumbs up*

    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, domestic life, disability, and romance for Shepard. Established Shakarian love builds to Shalibrations throuple once Tali moves in with her favorite human and turian on the Citadel. Various Normandy Ensemble appearances.

    *Now featuring art by Alan M. Capes (seealandraw) [Ch.7] and The Pixel Agora (thepixelagora) [Ch.11]

    Summary

    With the first Mass Effect game over, an out-of-work Saren Arterius decides to tell his side of the story on social media. Not to be outdone, an even-more-out-of-work (if that's possible) Sovereign feels compelled to write its own version of the story. Meanwhile, everyone else shows up to troll them in the comments.

    The plan is to update on Saturdays.

    Summary

    Elizabeth Shepard, the Earthborn, mostly-Paragon, biotic, misfit heroine of The Null Room and The Passage finally returns to Headquarters (from her gangland tour of the North American continent) just in time to say hello to the Reaper Invasion.

    Disclaimer the First: Shepard's and Vega's relationship likely won't make sense if you haven't read the previous stories.

    Disclaimer the Second: this story is LONG, in part, because it contains a great deal of dialogue pulled directly from the video game, with minuscule tweaks and mental commentary. we're trying to stay as (modded) canon as possible.

    Disclaimer the Third: there's an entire recorded playthrough on Youtube that runs in tandem with the story, including edits to construct scenes that don't strictly exist in the game (but, I argue, could). links in every chapter.

    Disclaimer the Fourth: Chapter count subject to change. Contains adult language. Void where prohibited. Please avoid operating large machinery while reading this fic.

    Summary

    LT Nathan Briggs was on his way to N-school before being transferred to Alliance HQ in Vancouver, assigned to guard duty. Commander Shepard was probably one of the last people in the galaxy he wanted to meet.
    My take on ME3. Rated M for language, violence and character death.

    Summary

    With the crew milling about the Starboard Observation Lounge, Shepard took a moment to stand back in the shadows. It was good to see them all finally meshing as a team, though it didn't take long for someone to seek her out. Smirking slightly, Kasumi handed her a distinctive looking glass, prompting Shepard to raise an eyebrow. She knew exactly what was in that drink, and didn't need the plucky thief's assertion that the cocktail was to help her 'acclimatise'... she was also certain that Thane had been close enough to hear the woman's comments. However she wasn't the type of person to back down from a challenge, so catching Thane's eye, Shepard raised the drell-venom infused drink in a silent toast before taking a sip; from the way his onyx eyes followed the movement, she was confident it was only the beginning.

    *A major re-working/updating of a story I originally wrote between 2014 - 2017*

    Summary

    After leaving Horizon, Commander John Shepard has focused on recruiting the rest of his team. But when Miranda finds intel on what turns out to be a rogue Cerberus operation in a secluded part of the Traverse, he ends up with a new teammate he never expected - himself, from another timeline. It turns out Shep is no clone, though; she’s her own woman, and though they share backgrounds as Mindoir survivors and heroes of the Skyllian Blitz, there’s just as much setting them apart as there is that proves they’re both the Commander Shepard. Under the care of the familiar faces of her crew that nonetheless isn’t her crew, she adopts the identity of John’s long-lost sister, and tries to find her place in a galaxy she knows and yet seems like it might forever be foreign.

    She’s a force to be reckoned with, and though her own universe has been destroyed by the hubris of the rogue operation, she’s determined to save his own right alongside him - and to reunite him with the man he misses the most from his own original crew... even as she tries not to think about just how close she and this Garrus are becoming - or how close she wants to become.
