    Summary

    Mara is a legend. Someone to look upon and follow into the hell itself. An icon she never asked or wanted to be. But as so many other heroes, she walks a dangerous patch and after Kaidan’s death, brought back from the grave, she walks it alone.
    Kal’Reegar is just a simple marine, like many of his kind. Brilliant tactician and brave soul, sometimes almost stupidly fearless.
    And one day Mara jumps into Kal’s life.

    Summary

    Annette Shepard has had a hard life. Losing her family on Mindoir, losing her unit on Akuze, losing two years of her life, and now losing the man she once loved. After a brutal reunion on Horizon, Annette has to pick up the pieces and push forward. Luckily she has the galaxy's (second) best shot at her side helping her along the way.

    This will be a bit of a slow burn working through the transition of Garrus and Shep's relationship from best friends to lovers as they hunt down the collectors.

    Feedback and suggestions more than welcome!

    Summary

    It always felt like Shepard against the world. Like Atlas, bearing the weight of the galaxy on his shoulders, it was easy to drown in too many responsibilities placed into his pocket. For the first time in his life, there was someone willing to share the burden with him. And Shepard? Well, he wasn't about to let a silly thing like death get in the way.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard made the hard decision to leave the Alliance military. This story explores what her life looks like without the Alliance and her journey to healing. She meets Garrus Vakarian during this time and these two immediately connect with one another. From both Garrus and Shepard POVs.

    This series is in a world where Reapers don’t exist. I wanted to focus on making Shepard more human with insecurities and doubts. I didn’t want to imagine this story in a world where she’s constantly having the galaxy on the weight of her shoulders. The trilogy made her focus on completing the impossible, over and over again.

    Smut starts at chapter 3!

    Summary

    It is said the first human Spectre, Commander Irene Shepard, was the sole survivor of the raid on Mindoir which batarian slavers either slaughtered or enslaved their victims. Irene, on the other hand, was hoping her older brother was still alive.

    But for now, she has to confront Saren after he's been confirmed to be working with the Geth. Little does anyone know, the strange red jewel Irene wears around her neck has extraordinary powers no military in the galaxy could recognize.

    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

    I created this HC after taking most of my first time playing ME1 not really knowing how to play the Vangaurd class. I know Charge isn’t available in ME1.

    This is stupid amounts of fluff.

    Summary

    I’ve finally gotten around to editing some really old stories I’ve had for Mass Effect and since they’re all kinda short, I’m gonna put them into a oneshot collection here.

    Enjoy, though you may be able to tell which ones are the older ones compared to the new ones...

    Summary

    Chapter 6 has arrived; Chapter 7 is coming!

    Where life is not so unjustly taken from a hero who has more than earned the breath in their lungs and the love in their arms.

    This is essentially a fix-it fic for the ending of the Mass Effect trilogy, because I sank a lot of hours into those games, and dang it, I want some absolution.

    Yeah, Mass Effect 3's ending stank like rotten eggs, but this series means too much to me.

    Summary

    Shepard's built a career on the impossible, but there's no way she could come back from the dead again. Kaidan isn't so sure. Is it grief or faith making him so unwilling to let go? He's got a job to do to help rebuild, and he can use that to find her...dead or alive.

    [Paragon sole survivor/spacer Shepard, Destroy ending. I may add more characters later. Grief can make you question yourself in some difficult ways - folks with personal experience, this may get triggering for you, hard to say for sure while I'm writing this. I've been dealing with a lot the past two years. I like using this part of the quarian passphrase to the Flotilla as my title. It's hopeful.]
