In Love and War
by Rockycombo reviews
Shepard and Tali's relationship grows during the fight with the Reapers, but that doesn't mean their story ends after they deal with the ancient synthetics. Reapers were simple; you can just shoot them in the head area. But that doesn't work for fans, admirals, or the past. Focuses on Tali/Shep pairing, rated M for sexual content and language.

A Warrior's Love
by Adam nar'Althor reviews
This story takes place in the Mass Effect 3 universe. It is a Paragon, unless indicated otherwise, MShep/Tali Romance story. Shep romanced Tali in ME2 and no one in ME1. I intend to make this story faithful to the established ME3 canon but will have additions that are of my own design and a VERY different ending. This story is on a hiatus until I finish my other EC Ending story.
