    Summary

    Mariah Shepard miraculously survived the Crucible, and Garrus has always been at her side. That won't change now that she's comatose in a hospital bed. There is no Shepard without Vakarian. Shadows linger in their minds, but in the end, even darkness must pass.

    TRIGGER WARNING:
    This work of fiction contains many descriptions of hospital procedures from a Surgical & Neuro Intensive Care Unit (SNICU), physical and occupational therapy, and the stresses of bringing home someone from a long term hospitalization, from the perspective of a carer. If this will prove troubling to you, please do not read this story.

    Summary

    He wasn't built for hope. Turians didn't have much use for the blind optimism of the desperate and the foolish when fatalism would serve just as well without all the cloying self-delusion. Hope was a left-handed turn when he was made of rights. But Shepard put it there, grafted it into him like new flesh and now he was an amalgam of her hope and his worn-out despair, asking which was the heavier weight in his chest when he looked at the Reaper construct wearing her face.

    Summary

    Garrus Vakarian is struggling with his feelings over what happened on Earth during the Reaper Invasion. He and the Normandy crew are stuck on an uncharted planet working to fix the ship. He hopes that Shepard is alive, but the crew is worried about him.
    Commander Shepard is alive, but barely. Can the two be reunited and can they make sure that the Reaper threat is really over?
    ****
    A Post-ME3 Shakarian fic. The beginning is more focused on the whole crew as I am working through all of the feelings I have after playing the whole series for the first time! There will be some AU things explored later in the fic and these two will get their happy ending, they absolutely deserve it. [Will be updated weekly or sooner!]

    Summary

    Shepard finally reaches the launch point of the crucible and sees their entire life flash before them. They're ready to join their friends on the far-off beach, to wait at the bar for Garrus, but orders are orders. They still have a life to lead, people to see, and worlds to help. As well as a turian they love too much to leave.

    Alternatively:
    Shepard is once again too stubborn to die, and the events that follow.

    Summary

    All life was synthesized to create a perfect eternal peace. The lie of ignorance from a Machine Child.

    Commander Shepard was a badass hero who unflinchingly saved the galaxy with her sacrifice. The lie of propaganda from those who profit from her loss.

    A truth: Garrus Vakarian is a bad turian who fell in love with a flawed human who died for the cause. And now he will rewrite fate to save her.

    Things between them have been working so far; a fragile, tenuous new relationship, kept safe in dark, quiet corners. Can it survive being pulled into the light?

    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

    Shepard sent him away so she could run for the beam and save the galaxy, but Garrus Vakarian won't be left behind that easily.

    --

    I would do just about anything for her if she asked.

    Now, though, she's ordering me to sit on the sidelines for the most important mission of our lives, to wait around and hope she can handle whatever is up there on her own. I guess I've found the one thing I won't do for her.

    A good turian would follow a bad order from his commander, but I've never been a good turian. I'll be damned if I start being one now.

    Summary

    The war is won, the Reapers have been defeated, Shepard's in a hospital on the Citadel, so naturally that's where Kaidan is, too, waiting for him to be released. The Alliance already has a new job for Shepard, which sounds rather boring at first, but Kaidan is determined to stay by his side nonetheless. But first, Shepard finally gets to meet Kaidan's mom.

    Set after ME3, a sequel to "I'm Awake Now", so if you haven't read that, many things won't make sense to you. As per last time: exclusively Kaidan's perspective, no sex scenes. I've got a part 3 planned, but it's possible to stop reading after this part and still get a valid ending because ending things on a cliffhanger only to then cancel the show is cruel (yeah, looking at you, Netflix).

    Summary

    Shepard wakes up in bed with a strange man. Her hair is cut and dyed. She has scars she doesn’t remember. Her home on the Pacific with Kaidan and their daughter doesn’t exist.

    Instead of being hailed Human Councilor, she's in uniform and being branded an Alliance traitor. The once-peaceful galaxy is ravaged by war, and she's on trial for starting it. She needs help. Kaidan, who should be her soft place to land, is now a bitter adversary, and her friends are nowhere to be found.

    Trapped in a brutal timeline, Shepard must do the impossible to return home: steal part of a secret Mass Relay. As renegade memories start to lock her in place, it's a fight against time and deadly enemies. Will it take the ultimate sacrifice to escape a fate worse than death?

    ***Story is finished. Posting one chapter a week.
