Razor's Edge: Requiem by Tairis Deamhan reviews
John Shepard has only one truth left. That the cycle must be broken no matter the cost. The price will be more than anyone should have to bear but the prize is the future, for those he cares for and for all life in the galaxy.

Warrior Ethos: 2 by 1054SS325MP reviews
The sequel to Warrior Ethos, this is a retelling of ME2. It has ManShep x Tali and FemShep x Garrus, and is designed to be very realistic, etc. A little bit AU. You don't need to read the first story, but it helps. It uses Calinstel's ideas on the quarian culture. Focuses more on the relationships and less on the missions. The information page is a separate story of mine.

Memoirs: The Illium Years by Sharrukin reviews
After Shepard is killed, Liara is left alone. She knows the galaxy is in danger, but what can one former archaeologist do against the threat of the Reapers? Maybe nothing, but Shepard's lover has learned not to give up too easily. Science fiction, adventure, intrigue, and a dash of romance.

Memoirs by Sharrukin reviews
Centuries after the end of the Reaper War, a respected asari scientist and political leader tells the story of her youthful adventures with the legendary Shepard. Fighting to save the galaxy is one thing, but figuring out human motivations can be much harder. Science fiction, action-adventure, and a romance on slow burn.

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.

TFHS 1,5: Reaping the Storm by Octo8 reviews
Sequel to The First Human Spectre, set between ME 1 (TFHS) and ME 2 (TFW). Shepard is dead. His squad mates and others have to deal with that - and with the political fallout he has created in the Alliance. Multi-PoV, mostly only loose connection between the single segments. Reading TFHS first is advised, but there is a summary of it inside.

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.
