Starquake Saga by YunikoYokai reviews
Endellion Shaik is struggling to answer why she is nearly 200 years in the future. In her search, she finds only promises of destruction, of continuing a cycle. Determined to not fall under the same snare, she has one mission: Save the galaxy from the Reapers and their sleeper agents. Individual blurbs are on my profile. Book 3 in progress. Slight AU at start, extensive AU later.

Mass Effect: Human Revolution by IgnusDei reviews

Quarian with a Shotgun by bofomania reviews
'Back to basics' collection of mostly behind-the-scenes episodes centered on Tali and her interactions with the crew of the Normandy SR1. Trying to be original while respecting canon story & lore (as much as possible). POV will vary: mostly other than Tali's, never Shepard's. No romance, but occasional hints at some Tali/Shepard 'chemistry.'

To the Stars by Hieronym reviews
Kyubey promised that humanity would reach the stars one day. The Incubator tactfully refrained from saying too much about what they would find there.

Psi Effect by Cap'n Chryssalid reviews
A fun-loving asari mercenary finds herself a little in over her head when she ends up abducted by terrifying aliens from beyond the galactic frontier. These asari-like creatures call themselves 'humans.' They seem to be secretly nosing about on the borders of known space, acting through proxies, conducting covert operations, and they've got a deal for an enterprising asari...

Transcendent Humanity by Solaris242 reviews
Humanity never developed FTL. The Prothean archives contained no technology, no Element Zero, just a warning. Isolated from the rest of the galaxy for two thousand years, restricted to their only system, how will humanity have changed when they first meet the Turians? AU, alternate history of humanity and First Contact.

Family Doesn't End With Blood by ColossusProblematic reviews
After he awakens to find his life upended and his friends scattered, Shepard continues the struggle against the hidden enemies that threaten the galaxy while he tries to reclaim the family he lost. M for language, violence, adult content. Being progressively rewritten as new chapters are added.

Paper Wings by Atreyu429 reviews
Being a cop is never easy. Neither is being thrown into a world of fiction. And after reluctantly joining C-Sec, I'll have to learn both lessons the hard way. Drug rings, psychotic gang leaders, blackmarket organ dealers, slave runners. It's all standard fare here. And beyond all that, powerful forces follow my every step. Surviving it all may not be an option...

Mass Effect: Glorious Shotgun Princess by Gregg Landsman reviews
The Exaltation of the Unconquered Sun is a tricky thing. Especially when it doesn't come with an manual. Jane Shepard, who was able to talk Spectres into suicide before getting a spiritual superweapon grafted to her soul, has a new advantage.

Massed Up by DelVarO reviews
When I woke up I expected it to be a regular, mundane and boring day. What I definitely did NOT expect was me ending up on the Citadel, which happens to be in a totally different universe. God I hate thursdays.

The Hero We Deserve by Random Equinox reviews
Humans are being abducted, probably because someone has really poor taste. Shepard has to find out why and stop them with the help of a band of misfits. They say it's a suicide mission. So what else is new? Well, getting killed for starters...

You Came Back to Me by T. Bryson reviews
After the events of ME3, Commander Shepard awakens on Earth and is taken to a hospital for care. His friends, all of whom thought he was dead, go to the hospital to be at his side as he recovers. Heavy on character development/interaction. Tali/Shepard focus.

Mass Effect: Comatose by Hadij Drake reviews
Going into a coma is much scarier than you think...and trust me, when you go down, your brain isn't dead. It's just...somewhere else at the time. Mass Effect Self-Insert, not for the faint of heart. Lots of differences from the game.

Going In For Guns: A Memoir of the Reaper Wars reviews
It was such a simple plan for a universe displaced geek. Join the Marines, learn to fly, and stay the hell away from canon. But simple doesn't mean easy. I had no idea what I was in for. The memoir of Major Christopher Z. Valentine, veteran of the Reaper Wars. Some days you walk around a corner, and end up in a fight. They're usually not this big, though. SI

A Fair Fight reviews
An alternate showdown on Cronos Station. Kai Leng's an arrogant dick. Shepard's a Slayer. Both are itching for something they haven't gotten since ICT ended: a fair fight. And looky, looky, both of them are holding monoblades. Originally a kmeme fill.

Flux Effect reviews
Life is never what you expect. The rules change without warning. Two years after waking up in a Citadel hospital, an innocent night's drinks change the course of a man's life. Foreknowledge is flawed, and he must decide what his path is. SI
