9Doing A Big Thing Badly » by Alanine A mostly canon-compliant, somewhat abbreviated, definitely self-indulgent re-telling of Mass Effect 2 from Garrus' perspective. As a Spacer Sole Survivor, it was always hard for my Shepard to swallow working for Cerberus in any capacity. Maybe TOO canon-compliant, with lots of dialogue from the game. Some additional scenes, some minor romance deviations to increase DRAMA. ;)

He finds a reason to live in Archangel and his crew...but he isn't sure he actually wants to. *This is the sequel to my ME1 fic, Rewrite the Stars.* Fair warning: This one gets DARK.

2 The War at Home by Alanine They say you should never meet your heroes, but for James Vega even worse was being assigned your hero's jailer while she's under arrest for war crimes.

21Rewrite the Stars » by enbycabbage A Shakarian romance that goes above & beyond (or at least before & after) what we were given in the games. Some canon, some AU - the characters don't always follow the arc they were given. This is my take on my favorite romance. Enjoy! **MATURE CONTENT WARNING** Smut, ahead. Title inspired the theme and was inspired by the song from The Greatest Showman. **I own nothing!**
