    Summary

    When the leader of the Reaper rebellion was murdered in deep space, the best her team could do was move on... Well, some moved on, and others just repeated the cycle of love and loss. When Garrus Vakarian left the Normandy behind in space along with his commander it was nearly too much to bear... But how were things supposed to be when he got to look her in the eye again? It looked like Shepard, it sounded like Shepard... But after watching her die in space was it so simple to just pick up where they left off?

    Better yet... When a newly built body challenges everything Commander Shepard knew about herself, will she choose herself or the galaxy?

    Summary

    “Wow Shepard, the others weren’t lying. Your cabin’s huge! I mean, what even is this fish tank?” Kaidan stands washed by the cool blue light, and Shepard chuckles, reminded of when they visited the Citadel for the first time. Kaidan’s exclamation of “Big place!” and Shepard holding back his amusement at the then-lieutenant.

    That was three years ago, and Shepard’s missed two of them, years during which the lieutenant has grown and been promoted into the very major that stands before him. Strong, capable, and oh so handsome.

    Thinking that he’s waited long enough, Shepard walks over. Kaidan doesn’t even notice until Shepard is right up beside him, but when he does, an endearingly sheepish look grows on his face.

    “Sorry, I, uh, got distracted.”

    “I can see that.” Shepard says, trying his hardest to pretend like he doesn’t find Kaidan just so damn adorable.

    Kaidan’s awkward grin morphs into an affectionate smile. "So, what did you want to talk about?"

    "Well, I wanted to know…" Shepard presses closer. "What did you mean by 'benefits'?”

    Or,

    Five of the times Shepard and Kaidan have sex in Shepard's cabin, and one of the times they have sex in their apartment.

    Summary

    Shepard chose to destroy the Reapers.

    My take on what happened after ME3, lots of angst, Shepard is very broken, but it'll eventually have a happy end.

    Follow on piece to 'And the Sky Full of Stars', but can be read as a standalone (they got together in late ME3)

    Summary

    Shepard cares for all of the crew. Of course she does.

    But ‘caring’ wasn’t enough on Akuze. And it certainly won’t be enough now.

    (ME1-ME3 retelling through snippets with each crew member. Canon compliant, AKA utterly miserable.)

    Summary

    He'd watched when the flag was draped over her empty coffin. Watched when the Council turned tail, dismissed the Reaper menace. He'd watched till the one disillusioned day he could watch no more, and then he'd watched himself quit, turning his back on the ones who'd turned their backs on her. Now they were serving together again, shooting the shit and shooting their foes and looking damn good while they did it. Something had happened when the commander died: she’d come back altered, adrift, and angrier. Garrus couldn’t get a lock on why things were a little different this time around. But Shepard was his captain come hell or high water, and that was enough to go on.

    Shepard, Vakarian, and a hell of a lot of banter with a shot of doom and gloom. Strap in for a tour spanning Mass Effect 2 and the spaces between, and watch out for flyby Batman jokes. On hiatus until conclusion of NaNoWriMo 2022; weekly Sunday updates resuming in December.

    Summary

    Post-Canon sequel to Singularity, written as part of N7 month and NaNoWriMo. It might help to have read some of the previous work in the Singularity canon. This is Singularity's "true ending" take on ME3 and beyond.

    I really suck at summaries. Sorry.

    Summary

    Zenith Shepard walked with authority, yet she held a certain grace about her; no doubt, she was an artist of the battlefield. Intriguingly, her hazel green eyes captivated him.

    Garrus Vakarian could easily be written off as a renegade turian hothead with binary thinking; but he is passionate, fights for justice and most of all has an alluring voice.

    It was in that moment when they crossed each other they knew that their lives would be forever changed.

    A collection of one-shots with Zenith Shepard and Garrus Vakarian across the trilogy; in no particular order
