2 The Princess Returns A person's past is supposed to be left behind when joining the Grey Wardens, but not everyone has the luxury of being able to forget. Rated T for two uses of a single swearword.

3 Xmas 2180 Christmas is a time that should be spent with loved ones but with Nikki Shepard on active duty this year, her civilian girlfriend will have to make do without her. Same characters/universe as my longer story 'First Love'. Nikki & Trish are both from Mindoir but while Shepard lost everything, Trish's family had already moved off world before the raid & they reconnected as adults.

16Spitfire of Hamelin » Shepard only joined the military to escape a prison sentence. On Elysium the only life she'd cared about saving was her own but the press made her into a hero and the Alliance were forced to cover up her part on Torfan. She didn't even TRY to save Kaiden from the beacon, now she's a Spectre & he's got visions. My 1st attempt at renegade. Warning: Violence & rape from the start. AU

36Badly titled Adventures in Space » Yeah I'm rubbish at titles (and synopsises). Commander Shepard doesn't have a weakness, a fact anyone who's ever seen her vulnerable will vehemently attest to. Some scenes you haven't seen before and some you have. ME3, eventual Traynor romance. I don't own the characters or the universe. Definitely contains swearing. Some non-priority missions may occur out of order. On Hiatus.

2 Do you love me? One shot. Despite their physical intimacy Traynor wonders whether or not her feelings for Shepard are unrequited, the conversation ends up unlike any of the scenarios she imagined. Rated T for swearing. Shepherd is from Mindoir but not 100% sure if that matters.
