Vigil by Peptuck reviews
Mankind has survived its crucible, and while scarred and changed by the Ethereals, they advance into the cosmos. The galaxy beyond is a place of wonder and terror, of wealth and strife. Amid the threats and opportunities, both within and without, XCOM remains vigilant. Mass Effect/XCOM/Eclipse Phase/FEAR/Destiny fusion.

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...

Solace Before the Storm by Way of the Sheikah reviews
When the Reapers attacked, Aedan Shepard became the symbol of hope the galaxy needed. In private, when the curtains were drawn, he quietly suffered. That is, until *she* came back into his life. Now, as galactic civilization stands on the edge of annihilation, they lean on each other to keep going. Spoilers: content includes the Citadel DLC. Cover art by neehs on DeviantArt.

In Love and War by Rockycombo reviews
Shepard and Tali's relationship grows during the fight with the Reapers, but that doesn't mean their story ends after they deal with the ancient synthetics. Reapers were simple; you can just shoot them in the head area. But that doesn't work for fans, admirals, or the past. Focuses on Tali/Shep pairing, rated M for sexual content and language.

XCOM: Enemy Within by JohnLocke94 reviews
Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the universe or not. Both are equally terrifying. And so begins XCOM, the first start of what I hope will someday become a true saga. What is humanity, after all? How much of that little spark in us is human? Rated M for future violence, language, and some sexuality. No offense intended, simply depictions of war.

Mass Effect - Cascade reviews
Stability has returned, of a sort. But even with the Reapers gone, resentment simmers. Along the backwater trade lands and near-abandoned colonies, powers with agendas plot to change the course of the galactic stage. With the Spectres now reorganised and Shepard no longer a front line Commander, a new crew steps in to follow the trail.
