    Summary

    Jeff Moreau just wanted a quiet place to study. Someone intrudes and makes herself a rather permanent part of his life, from the Academy to the end of the galaxy. He's the one who has to drop her into hell, over and over, but he'll always get her back. He's her pilot after all - and he'd follow her anywhere she asked of him.

    Ashe Shepard didn't ask for her scars, but she earned them nonetheless. Only one person sees her, truly sees her, and she'd do anything to make sure he doesn't fall into oblivion with her. She's his commander, after all - it's her duty to bring him home to safe harbour.

    Slight AU where Joker and Shepard meet in the Academy, and then it only grows from there. Liberties taken with relationships/timelines/events/biotics. Largely canon-compliant but we're all here to have fun right? The slowest of burns.

    Summary

    The threat of the Reapers has been held at bay with the defeat of Saren and Sovereign. The Citadel Council has been saved, albeit at the expense of many Alliance lives. With the Normandy in dock for repairs and shore leave ordered for the whole crew, Kaidan invites Allison Shepard to join him on his planned shore leave to Casablanca and Vancouver.

    What starts off as fun and responsibility-free time together begins to unwind as the dreams Allison has been having since Eden Prime resurface with more frightening visuals. And when news of Terra Nova under threat from batarian terrorists filters through, Kaidan begins to see a side of Allison he'd never suspected would exist.

    Aegri Somnia - literal translation 'A Sick Man's Dreams', taken from Ars Poetica by Horace.

    Summary

    The committee had a relatively simple plan: find two young willing parties -a turian male and a female human- and get them to agree to an arranged marriage. An attempt to bridge and fix the animosity between their races since the First Contact War.

    What they didn't account for was a rogue turian spectre to throw their arranged couple and their plan through a loop. Or, the planned fiancé and promised bondmate to leave his post as a C-Sec investigator to team up with his fiancée and chase the rogue spectre through relays and systems.

    Maybe this arrangement needed more calibrating...

    Summary

    Their attempt at a desert vacation on Rakhana goes awry when mercenaries intervene with rifles. Absolutely typical, thinks Shepard, shaking the sand out of her Eviscerator, and immediately heads back out with a squad to confront their leader.

    But this is no opportunistic ambush, and for once they are not after her. The trail leads Shepard and her remaining crew in a chase across desert sands and oceans, disguises and betrayals and escapes, firefights and sword fights (and the first Normandy Cheat Championship), and ends in the most unexpected place of all...

    But however hard they fight, the sand will run onward. Perhaps the only enemy Shepard cannot truly face is time itself.

    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

    He looked down at Shepard, who was tired but happy. There was a glimmer on her cheeks, highlighted by the ambient violet of the sky above. She was warm in his arms. He must be the luckiest man in the galaxy if it meant that he could hold her like this.

    “I'll never get over how beautiful this is,” Shepard sighed.

    She was talking about the Citadel, he knew that. An emotion lodged in his throat that he wasn’t sure he could say out loud yet. The emotion that always fluttered and festered when it came to her. How she was the one person he always had on his mind, since they were both seventeen and musing about travelling through the stars outside Arcturus.

    “Me either,” Joker said softly, and it was no lie.

    But he wasn't looking at the Citadel.

    Summary

    Saga takes place about 10 years after the Ryder saga. New heroes, new enemies are coming. The quarian ark has made it to Andromeda an brought hanar, drell, volus and quarians with into the galaxy. Furthermore there is a slight merge between Mass Effect and Shadowrun. You will recoginze familiar shadowrun classes and terms.

    I hope you‘re gonna like it. The story is about Samuel Wolfsbane, an elven ki-adept, commander of the "Phoenix", with a great destiny, his sister, Samara Wolfsbane, aspiring emissary of humans and his very colorful an very crazy crew. And the space dachshund Tiberius.

    This novel contents homosexual love! Also violence, battles, drama, action, sex with mature content, many adventures, martial arts and comedy. I‘m not a native speaker so my English isn‘t that excellent. Now enjoy! :)
