The Lives and Deaths of Commander Shepard by MosaicCreme reviews
The essence that is Commander Shepard has fought the battle against the Reapers more times than she can count, only to find herself right back where it all started. Never the exact same body, never the same first name or history. The disembodied voice struggles to break her way through to the consciousness of her current incarnation, trying to find a way to break her own cycle.

When Adrien Victus saw Commander Jane Shepard racing across Menae, he thought her one of the warrior goddesses of old.

Jane Shepard wears many labels. Survivor. Hero. Tiny. Fierce. Smart-mouth. Loyal. Mad woman. The truth, however, is never simple. Stopping Nihlus from leaving the Normandy alone, Shepard throws the galaxy down a rabbit hole that can only end in a dark and brutal war. AU canon-divergent. M for language, sex.

New Game by alden prime reviews
She'd woken up in an unrecognizable galaxy, jammed together from spare parts, a Cerberus logo stamped on her ass. She'd been handed a beautiful, expensive, top-of-the-line mockery of her old ship, crewed by beautiful, expensive, top-of-the-line terrorists. And either Shepard's sanity had splintered under the stress, or she was now some kind of unkillable demigod. Or both.

Control Tower by alden prime reviews
One day, Miranda comes to a terrible conclusion: she's really, really into Commander Jane Shepard. It started off as aloof respect of her abilities, turned to admiration, jealousy, friendship, and now here she is, looking at Shepard when she laughs hard and those freckled cheeks bunch up and ... oh, no. This is really inconvenient.
