Author has written 9 stories for Mass Effect, and Dragon Age.

Alright well, I'm Mirari, or can call me Rari for short. I enjoy Mass Effect and a few other games. Right now, my muses are focused on writing Mass Effect Fanfiction which is fine and all considering I haven't really written much in god knows how long. As you can see, I have a number of active stories to work through and I'm trying to keep them updated frequently, while maintaining a RL life. But if you want something updated ASAP, feel free to PM me and ask nicely. I don't bite all that hard. Really, I don't. *innocent smile* I can also be bribed with chocolate and coffee and a random can of monster or two.

Update: I will be moving tomorrow sooo will be internetless for either a few days or a few weeks. I'll still be writing, and my betas have access to my docs. If I ask nicely enough they might keep a few of the stories updated.


Stories:

After the War: Post Destroy, Shep has a new crew and love interest, dealing with the loss of her relationship with Garrus etc. On going not sure when it'll end. Requesting ideas to make it more interesting.

Across the Sea: Post Destory, Femshep/Thane pairing originally, life after surviving the destruction of the crucible without Thane, and learning to love the one person that has always been there for you from the very beginning. On going.

Slave Named Garrus: Was originally slated for pure smuttiness but had a twisted idea and going to see where it goes, will still contain smut with a mix of romance, and drama. Alternate universe with maybe a toss in of normal ME universe.

Family Matters: Alternate Universe, Shep and Garrus forced into marriage and a family. And of course nothing is all sunshine and rainbows for them. Only a few more chapters left before the finale.

Embrace of a Hero: My main fic of my FemShep's life in all three ME games. Will go on till post ME3 and will go A/Uish at some point.


Now I have TWO stories that I refuse to post here on FF, you can find them on my profile on AO3 under the pen name Emirae. Once you read those, you'll understand my hesitancy in posting them here. One is completed, the other is on going prompt from Kmeme.


I have wonderful friends that will beta for me from time to time. *heart emote*

And my lovely avatar was made by Orifiel in Aria's Afterlife. Feel free to join us there! We're a nice, fun and interesting bunch of folks.

Weightless by RaptorAssassin reviews
A wise Krogan once said that the only stories worth telling are those of love, sex, and war. This has all three. A story of provocateurs, confidants, and unhealthy attraction. Mass Effect Noir. Rated MA. Original content and a touch of AU pre & post ME1-3 concerning the secrets, origins, and lives of Jane Shepard and Garrus Vakarian.

News by LawGrad07 reviews
A different take on how Thane's romance could have played out through ME3. I am a believer in happy endings, love and the right to live. I will not, therefore, let Bioware simply kill the Drell. Not on my, or my Shepard's watch.

Void by Sereneffect reviews
Adjusting from being dead to suddenly being a live again is jarring, but even more so is seeing someone you mourned return. And yet the hardest is seeing how you both have changed. So, you must find a way to rely on one another for strength. Rated for violence, language, and mature situations. FemShepxGarrus. (New New Summary)

Warrior Ethos: 2 by 1054SS325MP reviews
The sequel to Warrior Ethos, this is a retelling of ME2. It has ManShep x Tali and FemShep x Garrus, and is designed to be very realistic, etc. A little bit AU. You don't need to read the first story, but it helps. It uses Calinstel's ideas on the quarian culture. Focuses more on the relationships and less on the missions. The information page is a separate story of mine.

Curious Jealousy by HeartyMedusa reviews
Kaidan had questioned Shepard's loyalties since Horizon and even admitted that he tried to move on from her. Naturally, Shep is going to be jealous (especially after she meets the other woman). Also, there is some potential jealousy from a certain Major, given how Shep and a certain Lieutenant flirt. Rated M for language, drunkenness, and potential future content.

Anonymous by BlackBird223 reviews
Shepard is unusually pissed at most things and is feeling particularly lonely. That is until she starts getting messages from an anonymous person (not for long) that makes her feel special. Well a different special than the First Human Spectre. She learns that not everyting in life comes easy. Garrus/FemShep. Future language, violence and who knows what else. Slight AU throughout.

Somewhere Out There by kingsandthieves reviews
After Horizon, Joker's had enough of the sulking on board, so he decides to do something about it. It's just too bad for Cerberus that "doing something" means dumping Shepard and Kaidan alone on a dangerous planet to hash out their problems, a planet that one member of the crew is already intimately familiar with. Rated M, mostly for later situations and a whole lot of profanity.

After returning from the future with Dorian. Inquisitor Amelia Trevelyan has grown rather close with the Tevinter mage.

Inescapable Past by unkemptwords reviews
This story is based on the same story as the previous one. Again it has mild, very mild, hints of eventual Shakarian romance. However, Commander Shepard is currently in a failing relationship with Kaidan Alenko. In the past I've read a lot of stories where Kaidan was brutally characterized or dead so I' thought I'd give it a different spin. Rated T just to be safe.
