Author has written 5 stories for Mass Effect.

Formerly known as Caracal22, but apparently Fanfiction's search systems did not like the title, so I changed my handle. Sorry to any longtime followers that this confused...

Attempter of fics of various kinds, all in the Mass Effect universe. My main project is a two (maybe three) part series set more than 20 years after the Reaper War - action, suspense, and relationship focused.

Update: Jack x Miranda centred fic, 22 Sinchi, now complete - Part Two underway.

Architect of Fate by OriginalAlcy reviews
Victory over the Reapers was achieved only at a steep galactic and personal cost – billions are dead and the galaxy hovers on the verge of anarchy. Scarred and changed by her actions, Evan Shepard risks losing everything she loves in the brutal struggle for peace. The continuation of the ME universe created in Catalyst of Fate. FemShep/Liara; Ashley/Miranda.

Pretty Good Year by Lyta Halifax reviews
At the end of the Reaper War, Liara T'Soni sits, brokenhearted and devastated; her unrequited love for Commander Shepard repeatedly rejected after three long years. She can't help but think that her life is over, but a certain understanding Communications Specialist is about to show her that the next year could be the best of her life.

Pressure by Midnight Lion reviews
The Reapers are here. Shepard struggles with fear for her mother, guilt over being alive, and interspecies grudges. She can't unite the galaxy, or sort out her love life. At least she has a good friend to lean on. F!Shep/Kaidan, F!Shep/Thane

Once More Unto The Breach by Lyta Halifax reviews
The War ended in a massive wave of blue energy. Afterwards, the Reapers passively turned to rebuilding the Galaxy they had shattered. And Holliandra Shepard, unconsumed by the process, now works to build a new life with the woman she loves. As the years go by, why can't she shake the feeling that despite her victories, something is terribly amiss.? FemShep x Liara. AU Control

Glacial Fire by owelpost reviews
Shepard is icily unsympathetic. Liara has reached the point of combustion. An unassuming communications specialist finds herself caught in the cross-fire. As a result of a twisted dance, they reduce one another to fragments. This story is a darker examination of the characters taking place during the events of ME3.

Interstitium by AssaultSloth reviews
Flashbacks, interstitial scenes, and backdoor dealings. A companion to ME2 focusing on characters and worlds, big and small.

Brokering in Shadows by owelpost reviews
Riposte. One-shot. Dark. NSFW. Please read warning. After the war, Liara continues to make use of the skills she learned as an information broker.

No Impact, No Idea by OriginalAlcy reviews
It's no good being able to drill someone from a hundred metres if you can't pull the damn trigger. A certain ex-Cerberus Operative is playing games with Ashley Williams and it's the one battle the marine isn't equipped to fight. An expansion of the Miranda/Ashley romance in Catalyst of Fate.

In the Shadow of Shanxi by thepurplewombat reviews
Ashley has lived her life in the shadow of Shanxi. She never thought Virmire would give her the chance to redeem her family name. Written for the July Writing Contest at Aria's

Did You Seriously Just Punk Me by Sachehund reviews
Jack, Tali, and Shepard get stranded on Omega by a convenient plot device, Shepard has equally convenient dream while they're holed up in a ratty 'hotel' room, and, as a result of unexpected theatrics, speculation ensues. Really, just consider Shepard to be a prop for the better part of this— I just wanted an excuse to have Jack and Tali banter.

Recovery by drwells123 reviews
The Lazarus project is interrupted, leaving Miranda Lawson to nurse Kate Shepard back to health on a distant world. AU. H/c hurt courtesy of Bioware . Pure fluff. Mature content. Reviews much appreciated. Thank you for reading!

Lazarus reviews
Tali and Garrus get it together just before the final battle of the war. In the Sinchi-verse, this is what happens directly afterward. A sad, short one-shot.

Still Game reviews
After the War, Liara and Sam are together on Ilium. But all is not well with their relationship. And when Sam discovers the reason why, the fallout will change them both. Liara x Sam. M-Rated. Fem!Slash. Kinky. NOT at all related to the Sinchi trilogy.

Encaenia reviews
Encaenia ('consecration'): the annual ceremony at which the University of Oxford presents honorary degrees to distinguished alumnae and personages, and commemorates its benefactors. A year after the Reaper War, Sam and Shepard cross paths again. Romantic short story, but ultimately smut. Mature. FemShep x Traynor. Note: No relation AT ALL to 22 Sinchi.
