    Summary

    Humans are exceptionally skilled at adapting, fast and violently, when needed. Turians are fiercely dedicated and proud of the militant prowess that marks their species across the galaxy. Both are willing to burn the ground they stand on to win a different type of war.

    In the twelve years that followed human’s rough introduction to the galactic community beyond the Charon relay, little changed the general distaste for homo sapiens ‘ingenuity’ amongst council species. Sparked by the rapid rise of human political power, species extremism polarizes Citadel space. Forced to work together, Shepard and Garrus are tasked with investigating a string of terrorist attacks that threaten to destabilize galactic peace. What starts as a collection of awkward firsts, develops into a game of broken rules and self-deception. For Shepard and Garrus, facing the truth about themselves and each other just might be the hardest feat.

    Set in an alternate universe.

    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.

    Summary

    PART 2 - CURRENTLY BEING REWRITTEN, BECAUSE JUST ONE PROJECT AT A TIME ISN'T ENOUGH
    What do you do when you have a week left of shore leave and nothing to do? In 2176 Jane decided to answer that with "Go to Elysium."

    The plan was to relax and find a man she could share her week with, but her plans get trashed when she quickly finds herself in the middle of an attack. Backup isn't quick to arrive, either, which means she feels compelled to take charge.

    Follow Jane as she steps up, stands her ground and does what she can to protect the colonists on Elysium against the batarians.

    Excerpt
    “You’re a rude little fucker, aren’t you? Why don’t you apologize to Telesa for making sure she’s now got glass all over her bar? That’s gonna take her a long time to clean up.” I angrily said in his ear.

    “Let me go!” He whined.

    “I’ll let you go once you apologize. You better make it sincere, or your arm’s gonna brake.” I promised.
