Author has written 7 stories for Mass Effect.

"No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention. Well, get used to that feeling. That's how your whole life will feel some day. This is all practice." - Chuck Palahniuk

Some things I am proud of, others make me cringe. Roll with the punches and learn from your mistakes.

Across the Bar by waiting4morning reviews
Mass Effect 2 doesn't tell us what Shepard experienced between the Normandy getting destroyed and waking up in a Cerberus facility. This fic attempts to explore that. Oneshot. Fem!Shep.
