    Summary

    A Shepard and Garrus romance spanning all three games. This fic came out of my tendency to write out the additional dialogue I *wished* I could have with Garrus, because there is just never enough.

    Mostly takes place between the in-game scenes plus some dialogue rewrites to flesh out the Shepard/Garrus romance. Garrus POV. Mindoir, war hero, paragon Shepard. Angst, humor, pining, and a lot of mushy stuff. I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    I changed this work to a collection of one-shots telling stories from the perspective of the crew. It was originally a one-shot about Garrus but I had the inspiration to add more and make this a work I can add to as I get ideas

    Summary

    Miranda Lawson has done it before, so she can surely do it again.

    Summary

    It is the year 2183, and humanity has been under the thumb of the Hierarchy for twenty-six years. Client race status has not sat well with many humans, despite the good-faith attempts at inspiring amicable relations between the two species. When a tragedy on Eden Prime sparks a hunt for rogue Spectre Saren Arterius, it's up to the Normandy's human-turian crew—the first of its kind—to track him down. The humans and turians will learn more about each other and themselves as they unite against the greatest threat the galaxy has ever faced.

    And some, like the turian Spectre in training and the human cabal squad leader, may be lucky enough to find love along the way.

    Summary

    Shortly after defeating Saren tragedy strikes as Shepard dies over Alchera. Haunted by grief and a ring - Garrus flees the Citadel to as far away he could from his memories of her - before finding himself settling into the moniker of Archangel. After recovering the Commander's body, Miranda finds herself tangled up in Cerberus' webs to bring her friend back despite her vow to never be like her father. Two years fly by in a flash as those who know worry about the inevitable Reaper invasion.

    Shepard returns to struggle with how Garrus changed, how her parent's divorce wounded her, and her friend's having to live in a galaxy without her for two years.

    Summary

    Shepard rejects the Catalyst's curated options. When the apparent ghost of Legion 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; finding the answers will require fighting Terra Prima fascists, reconnecting the Geth Consensus, and (maybe) getting married.

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

    A post-ME3 story exploring new mysteries, domestic life, disability, and romance for Shepard. Established Shakarian love builds to Shalibrations throuple once Tali moves in with her favorite human and turian on the Citadel. Various Normandy Ensemble appearances.

    *Now featuring art by Alan M. Capes (seealandraw) [Ch.7] and The Pixel Agora (thepixelagora) [Ch.11]

    Summary

    You're pushing me into the corner
    Don't fight with me, don't fight with me, don't fight with me
    I'm crowning no man for his armour or Rhapsody
    For what I see and what I feel

     
    Talisa Shepard never considered herself to be a hero. She only wanted to do some good for herself, for those around her. Few Earthborn orphans were able to leave their lives of hopelessness and destitution. She was one of the lucky ones.

    Wake up
    I'm defying you, seeing right through you, once I believed in you
    Wake up
    Feel what's coming, deep within we all know

    When her love is killed, Talisa vows to stop at nothing until the one responsible is brought to justice. But nothing is ever that simple. Learning that there are more sinister forces at play, Talisa must fight to defend the future of the galaxy and all those in it.

    So raise your banner, fight your war
    Break the silence, no remorse
    Won't die within
    Raise your banner, won't you come?
    Fight the venom, the good die young
    Won't die within

    It won't be easy, and blood will be shed, but as Talisa and her team well know: blood is the price of freedom.

    Summary

    While she’s on (forced) medical leave, a certain turian crash lands in Shepard’s backyard. Instead of leaving him to bleed to death like any sane person would do, she takes him into her home and nurses him back to health.

    (Because, as Vega would put it, she’s a goddamn girl scout with the self-preservation instinct of a moth near a flamethrower.)

    A first contact AU where rather than immediately going to war with the turians, the first human to meet a turian instead maybe sort of falls in love with him.

    Summary

    Genre: Fanfic

    Intended for those who are already very familiar with the Mass Effect games.

    Timeline: 2185 CE (ME2) - 2186 CE (ME3)
    - Snippets included of interview segments from further in the future, 2189 CE (3 years post Reaper Destruction), with Garrus as he reminisces on his relationship with FemShep.

    While this is ultimately a "Shekarian" story, I hold personally high regard for the pacing the original game designers designated. I also prefer believable friendships and romantic relationships centered around strong bonds, as opposed to hot flings.

    Those two things are the main goals:
    1. Maintain story integrity: (i.e. actual events in the games, and some additional influence from the comics, will be covered)
    2. Flesh out the in-between moments leading to strong relationships

    FemShep will be based off my personal favorite playstyle: Infiltrator, Paragon.

     

    All [direct and/or partial quotes] from game dialogue or comics belong to the original writers.

    Sometimes several hours after I post a chapter I come back and edit it again a smidge. If I decide to change anything big I leave a comment.

    *casual thumbs up*

    Summary

    After leaving Horizon, Commander John Shepard has focused on recruiting the rest of his team. But when Miranda finds intel on what turns out to be a rogue Cerberus operation in a secluded part of the Traverse, he ends up with a new teammate he never expected - himself, from another timeline. It turns out Shep is no clone, though; she’s her own woman, and though they share backgrounds as Mindoir survivors and heroes of the Skyllian Blitz, there’s just as much setting them apart as there is that proves they’re both the Commander Shepard. Under the care of the familiar faces of her crew that nonetheless isn’t her crew, she adopts the identity of John’s long-lost sister, and tries to find her place in a galaxy she knows and yet seems like it might forever be foreign.

    She’s a force to be reckoned with, and though her own universe has been destroyed by the hubris of the rogue operation, she’s determined to save his own right alongside him - and to reunite him with the man he misses the most from his own original crew... even as she tries not to think about just how close she and this Garrus are becoming - or how close she wants to become.

    Summary

    When Council Spectre Garrus Vakarian goes to Earth to meet his Quarian informant for his investigation into Saren, things quickly go awry when he’s shot down over the Canadian wilderness. Just as things start to seem like a lost cause, he’s found by a human guide named Shepard. With Shepard’s help, he just might be able to rescue his informant and bring Saren to justice.

    Even in a world where Shepard never joined the Alliance and Garrus became a Spectre, paths are still meant to intertwine as the universe hurtles towards the arrival of the Reapers.

    Summary

    Death was not a new concept for Laryna Shepard. When it came for her, she only regretted not living more. Now that she's been given a second chance, she'll do whatever she has to in stopping the Collectors and their masters, and she'll live on her own terms instead of those imposed by Cerberus, the Council or the Alliance. Loyalty is a tricky business, and will pull our hero unforgivingly as she attempts to save the galaxy from itself.
    First person PoV, mostly Shepard's, though others are added for flavor. Especially Garrus.
    Commander Laryna Shepard: biotic, Earth born, hero
    Shakarian
    For smut hunters, start on chapter 33.

    Summary

    Commander Shepard is not okay during The Reaper War.

    Luckily everyone's favourite Turian is there to help.

    The two of them are painfully in love with each other, but neither of them can spit it out. Also they keep being pretty oblivious about it.

    This was originally a one-shot but then I kept adding to it, so now it's got more chapters. Originally I made it a series, but it was totally just extra chapters, so now it's a work in progress.
