Author has written 6 stories for Mass Effect, and Resident Evil.

I'm a good ol' Canadian who enjoys writing stories for fun.

I'm a big MShep/Miranda shipper, and my other favorite character is Garrus. Mordin is always good for laughs as well. Apparently I like writing Jack (I didn't know that) since she's been front and center in many of my stories. Anyways, with the ME3 shitshow ending I've lost a lot of interest in writing.

My writing time varies, depending on how my life is going. One day I'll pump out 5k words, the next 3 months 0. Basically, there will be no reliable production.

Shepard Names

The names I use for Shepards can be representative of personality, and if the name is used in one story and in another, then it's the same universe, so here's a list of them with a brief description.

Joanna Shepard: Female Renegade, incredibly loyal to her crew and her mission, everything else can go to hell.

Vincent Shepard: Mostly Paragon Male. Nothing else to him as of yet.

John Shepard: Paragade (Mix of Renegade and Paragon, like 50/50) Male. For a Call to Battle

Stories:

The Last String (Mass Effect 2): Joanna Shepard, Renegade Female. The human reaper is destroyed, and Joanna Shepard just has a few last strings to take care of. An ending.

Unresolved What Now? (Mass Effect 2): Vincent Shepard. Shepard gave Jack the Cerberus files. Miranda can't stand that, and a fight between Shepard and Miranda break out. But it sure seems like there's something else going on there, doesn't it.

Game of Love (Mass Effect 2): Vincent Shepard. Jack is sure that Shepard loves her, but Miranda questions that idea. No time like the present to find out.

Falling (Mass Effect 2): Vincent Shepard. To be the collection of all future Vincent Shepard episodes. Begins with the escape from the collector base. A time to run like hell!

Call to Battle (Mass Effect 2): John Shepard. My 'novelization' of Mass Effect 2, although it will be missing much of the game, and adding in new scenes/adventures. Shepard is out to stop the Reapers, and he'll do whatever it takes, even working with slimy Cerberus operatives. Although one sure doesn't look so slimey, especially after he get's to know her. - Suspended due to ME3 shitshow ending.

For Tomorrow We Die by ElectricZ reviews
ME2- After surviving the Omega Four Relay mission, the Normandy returns to find the galaxy in political turmoil. Cerberus has been exposed, humanity has lost its council seat, and the geth offer a peace that no one seems to desire. To complicate matters, the Reapers are coming. Most characters present. AU as it invalidates Mass Effect 3. Alternate ending begins chapter 72.

Crazy Train by baynard reviews
Some of the more interesting things the crew of the Normandy got up to between a suicide mission and saving the galaxy. The things history tries very hard not to associate with their heroes. Not necessarily from the same timeline.
