Dangerous by aimorai reviews
A normally practical mage struggles with the burdens of love and duty - neither of which she asked for. Alistair/Amell/Zevran love triangle developing. Of course, Bioware owns all of the non-original characters and settings within; I just borrow them!

The Cerberus Files Addenda : The Systems Alliance by LogicalPremise reviews
Cerberus's take on the SA. Follows the style of the the Cerberus Files for alien races, but this time going into the dark and ugly history of the Systems Alliance, changes in human culture, and details about the government, politics, and more, written by Minsta. Sort of my take on Renegade Reinterpretations, except more like 'bloodthirsty lunatic reinterpretations with an axe'.

No Strings Attached by quantumparadigm reviews
Part 1 of the 'No Strings Attached' saga. Shepard and Alenko meet each other on Trident while on shore leave. After a chance encounter leaves them instantly attracted to each other, they abandon all caution. No names, no dates, no strings attached. But once it's over, is it really over? Shenko. Pure fluff, no plot. You've been warned.

At the End of the Day reviews
Post-war domestic bliss oneshot. Kaidan comes home after a long day, and Shepard shares his snack with him. Tries to be kinda PWP but a bit of fluff and headcanon is inevitable with mshenko.

Copper reviews
When he crosses that same chasm that they had passed all those years before, the Call abates, finally. Instead he hears a light voice, something calm and serene. There are no words, not yet, but he knows it's hers. He recognises the faint lilt of her laugh, and it rends his heart in two to hear it again now.

Best Yet reviews
Kaidan and m!Shepard's first time after the war. "Kaidan knows he doesn't drag his feet because he's tired or because he hasn't had any coffee yet that morning; it's just the way Shepard moves lately ... And yeah, it's something that Kaidan has to adjust to as well, seeing him move that way, but given the alternative… well, he's not about to complain."
