Author has written 2 stories for Mass Effect.

Fan fiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of by the folk.

- Henry Jenkins, director of media studies at MIT

What Science Fiction and Pornography had in common was their vision of an impossibly hospitable world.

- Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Sense and Flexibility by Roarkshop reviews
The story of Garrus and Femshep as told by me. Lots of off-canon. Sequels incoming. TW: It's been brought to my attention that some of Garrus' more animalistic behavior in some scenes have caused panic attacks for victims of abuse. I am so sorry for anyone who had a similar reaction. SO sorry. I would like to make any new readers aware of this beforehand. Thank you.
