Of Sheep and Battle Chicken
by LogicalPremise reviews
My AU retelling of ME1 in a darker, sinister universe. Much darker and more realistic views of the SA and the Citadel Council, a more dangerous, involved Cerberus, and a more conflicted Saren and Benezia. Changes much of the ME1 dynamic to remove plot holes with more focus on politics, military strategy, and space combat. Pairing is FShep/Liara. Rewritten through Chapter 12 so far.

Dark Energy AU: Best Left Said
by Melaradark reviews
An AU based on my DE series. What if Del Shepard's past had been different? What if she were the one who was the shy scientist...and Liara was the hardened commando? How would it change them, and would the love that so defined them in DE blossom once again? Old characters and new ones follow a story that is *NOT* ME or DE canon. Enjoy!

Without an End

Birthed By Fire
by ShadowFlame68 reviews
Sometimes the person Fate chooses as the hero is the least heroic; Kira Shepard embodies this "ideal". Consistently burned and stronger because of it, she isn't the type of person anyone wants to put trust into, but she's the only one who can get it done. With a threat to all sentient life on the horizon and Light failing, the galaxy turns to its final defense - Darkness. Femslash.

Cause and Mass Effect
by claihm solais reviews
Mass Effect is a great game. A fun game. But the fun and games stop when it all becomes real...when I find myself on the Citadel, with the terrible knowledge of what's coming. Can one person really make a difference? I'm sure as hell going to try, because the Reapers aren't taking over this galaxy on my watch.
