    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

    Set straight after Horizon. Femshep reflects on the conversation with Kaidan Alenko and Garrus offers support.

    Set mainly during the events of ME2 and looks at Shepard’s relationship with Garrus.

    Features two idiots not realising their feelings for each other and the crew subtly/not-so-subtly trying to help them out. This will have been done before, I know, but wanted to have a go at it anyway!

    Summary

    Thanks to the peace achieved between Tali and Legion on the Normandy, the quarians and geth are ready to talk for the first time in three hundred years. Neither side trusts the other, but if there's anyone they trust less it's the Council. To ensure impartiality and prevent outside interference, the human System Alliance agrees to mediate in secret.

    After defeating the Collectors at the center of the galaxy, the crew of the Normandy prepares to stand down for repairs while Commander Shepard goes to the Citadel with proof of the impending Reaper invasion. But word of the peace negotiations is leaked and the entire geth collective goes silent. Humanity's fragile relationship with the Council is shattered. And now Commander Shepard must find a way to unite them all before the reapers return to wipe out civilization as they all know it.

    Summary

    **This Mostly Follows the Plotline of ME2**

    Faith Shepard has been dead for two years, and Garrus Vakarian has carved out something like a life for himself on Omega.

    It isn't legal, and it certainly isn't by the books, but he's doing his best to remember what's left of the things Faith saw in him- and herself. Everything's a struggle. He's starting to believe there isn't any hope left for justice in a place like this, but then she shows up again. She saves more than his life.

    Shepard saves...everything.

    He'll follow her, even if the people she's answering to are what he thought were their enemies- the terrorist organization Cerberus. But she's strange. Faith is wrong, but he's never going to leave her behind again. He belongs at her back, as long as it's her.

    It is her, isn't it?

    Spirits...what if it isn't?

    -- This is the second work in a series. --

    Summary

    Shepard rejects the Catalyst's curated options...and when the apparent ghost of a friend 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--and it will take a Rannoch pilgrimage, some red sand, one rachni mentorship, and a wedding ambush to find answers.

    "Remember, Shepard-Commander: The first thing a god masters is herself."

    Summary

    **THIS IS A MASS EFFECT AU. IT HAS ZERO TO DO WITH THE ORIGINAL WORK. I'M BASICALLY JUST USING THEIR LIKENESS FOR FAMILIARITY. I MAKE NO MONEY FROM THIS AND IT WAS WRITTEN PURELY FOR THE ENJOYMENT OF MYSELF AND OTHERS. (JUST PUTTING THAT OUT THERE.) I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT.**

    John Shepard has always been an odd child who's life was never ideal. He had endured much, but nothing could have prepared him for the night his world spiralled out of control.

    ***WARNING*** THIS STORY MAY CONTAIN SEVERAL TRIGGERS. PLEASE TAKE NOTE BEFORE READING.

    Summary

    Hey Commander,

    We’re on our way back to Earth. Not for you; you’re definitely dead. I said we should find a beach somewhere and retire, but no one ever listens to me. Garrus and Liara said we’re going to Earth because that’s what you would want. Which I guess means it’s kind of for you. If I can get the Normandy off of Sur’kesh. I mean, I can definitely get her off of Sur’kesh. After everyone else fixes her.

    Oh, by the way; Garrus is an asshole now. You know how he always had that stick up his ass? Yeah, now it’s a club. A big one. I don’t know how he fits it up there when he’s not using it to beat everyone into his way of thinking. The only person he’s afraid to use it on is Liara, and I’m pretty sure that’s because he knows she’ll put him in stasis if he gets too out of line. He’s pissed that you died. Pissed that we’re stranded. Honestly, he’s just pissed about everything.

    Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m kind of pissed at you, too. You’re Commander fucking Shepard. You’re not supposed to die. Permanently, anyway.

    If things work out we should be able to stop by in six months or so. Clear your calendar.

    See ya,
    The Best Pilot in the Galaxy

    Summary

    Set at the end of Mass Effect 3, this story set up an AU that explores what happens to the crew of the Normandy and some of the other characters from all of the ME properties in the years after. I have used much of canon backstory and the events to build this verse, though I have added my own ideas into the blank spaces in character and story history in hopes of providing deeper backstory to each of their individual lives. Relationship, government, world building, and all future actions that the citizens of my universe take moving forward are my interpretations of how I believe they may develop based on the ending of the Reaper War in my mind.

    This story exists in its entirety on fanfiction.net under the same username. Consider that a first draft edition of both books 1 & 2. Here I am publishing again to allow for editorial changes, and some improvements to details as I prepare for the final book. I will update each chapter here as I complete the edits, but if one wants to read the story, it is available on the other site.
