See You Around - Chapter One
Author's Note: So, the Garrus/Shepard romance annoyed me slightly because it is a great set up but it wasn't as great as it could have been in ME2 (although, admittedly, it was pretty awesome in ME3). Pretty much since I played it the first time I've had a vague idea of how I thought it should have played out and when I wrote it down it evolved into this monster so enjoy!
Also, I have started sketching a scene from each chapter on my Deviant Art page.

"Jane, are you okay?" Hannah Shepard asked as she approached her daughter.
"Yeah. Why wouldn't I be?" Jane didn't look up from the book she was reading. Hannah sighed silently as she read the cover: 'Advanced Mathematics Volume VII'.
"You haven't left the ship since we docked a week ago."
"Yes I did. I went shopping just after we arrived." She st
ME: SurpriseShepard was not surprised to find Garrus away from the control console in the main battery when she walked in. It had been a bit of a shock at first, but she was glad he had figured out that he didn't need to be calibrating that damn gun all the time. The only downside was having to hunt all over the ship for him when she wanted his company, although he had taken a liking to the lounge area, making that her usual first stop when looking for him.
This time, however, she quickly realized that it wouldn't be needed. A glanced showed that he was over at the workbench that he been installed on the right wall. He'd half turned to see her come in and seemed frozen now.
"Shepard." He said by way of greeting. "Hey." Shepard felt her eyes narrow slightly. Although he was trying to keep his voice level, his mandibles were twitching nervously and he had turned slightly to the side to hide whatever he was working on. "Some
The Friend Zone"So then he says, 'Oh, it's okay. Our amino acids are all different, so it's not like we can get diseases or anything if we go natural'."
"I'm telling you, this is why you shouldn't date humans."
"So then I had to explain about cross-species fluid contact. Completely killed the mood."
"Not to mention that you're a quarian. How could he be so insensitive? You deserve somebody who's going to respect you. Somebody who's going to treat you right."
"Oh, I think I'm just going to stop dating for a while."
"No! Don't do that. Don't let some human spoil you."
"It's always the same thing. 'Ooh, she could get sick. Ooh, she's vulnerable. I wonder what she looks like under the helmet'."
"You'll find someone out there who cares about you for who you are. Someone whose food you can eat, even. If you're hurting for something to do, maybe after work we could catch a vid or something?"
"Oh, that's sweet, but a little dry spell isn't going to kill me."
"We could watch 'Fleet and Flotilla', it got award

Sarah 'Angel' Shepard-Vakarian was awoken very suddenly and very rudely.
This did not bode well for whoever had woken her.
By the time she had woken enough to have her wits about her, Sarah found herself pinning an asari stewardess to the wall of the shuttle, her pistol to her head.
She sighed a little at the inconvenience. It wasn't the best start to her new, normal life.
Her sleepy state was quickly dispersed as she noticed the faint blue glow over her skin. However, it flickered and died as soon as she realized its existence.
Figures, she thought to herself as she turned her attention to the terrified woman in front of her.
"Sorry." She told the asari, although she didn't look it, as she checked that her visor was still in place, cleverly hiding her ice-blue eyes so that no one would notice

So, this is an unusual departure for me. I am on my third run of ME3 and I was staring at my FemShep who is romancing Garrus and I finally figured something out about her. I don't know why I figured this out about her but I did at like 9 morning it wasn't intentional but I just looked at her, the way I played the game, and I came up with why she acts this way in my head. I'm not trying to be ground breaking or a revolutionary with this. Hell I'm probably taking a great risk posting this the way it is. And this is why Bioware is so awesome because they gave us something that could inspire this, though the thought on closure is rather uh...yeah. This is my MAIN FemShep and I have 4 more FemSheps and six MSheps. Each one unique and varied but for her I just realized this is why she fights, is a kind soul, and does what she does the way she does it and I just wanted to
The Beginning of All His Problems "Loving someone isn't wrong, Garrus. Whether you think it's right or wrong is irrelevant. If you feel it, you feel it. Don't try to calibrate your way out of it. Let yourself have something good, something you really want, for once. Okay?" Solana's voice floated through his ears softly, the way their mother's always had.
"Okay," he answered, his undertones giving away his annoyance.
"Garrus Vakarian! You're not listening to me!" she shrieked, shouting his name just like their mother did when he took apart something he shouldn't have.
"Spirits, Sol, yes I am! I heard you. The first six times, and I'm going to hear you the seventh, too. I get it! Now stop--"
"Who you talking to, Vakarian?" Shepard asked, leaning over his shoulder, trying to get a peek at the console.
"Oh, is that...looks like I gotta go, Garrus. Talk to you soon. Love you, Garbear. Bye."
Suddenly the screen went blank except for a general Other user has logged off message.

*Note: Chapter 1 and 2 are more like an extended prologue than anything. I cover a lot of ground in the first two chapters. The story slows down after that. The first two chapters basically cover little aspects that you need to know as the story progesses. Please don't let the first two chapter deter you from reading on. Thank you!
"I'm proud of you kid," said Anderson.
"Just remember you were a human before you were a Spectre, you represent all of humanity with your actions," said Udina.
"I won't let you down," said Shepard confidently.
Anderson stepping down and giving Shepard the Normandy? It didn't feel right to her. Pushing papers wasn't his thing but he wanted to give her every chance to succeed in this mission. She knew how much this meant to him and she wasn't going to let
ME: Intercept 1There were so many machines in the room that their soft beeping drowned out the breathing of the patient they were monitoring. Commander Lilliana Shepard, hero of the galaxy, the one who enabled them to win the war and drive back the Reapers, lay in the center of them all amidst a tangle of wires.
Her mother stood at the foot of her bed, her hand resting on the edge as she watched the gentle rise and fall of her daughter's chest. It was the only sign that she was still alive. Admiral Hannah Shepard knew that the machines around her would be able to tell her the same, but she didn't know what the various readouts meant and quite frankly she did not care. Her daughter was breathing on her own now. That was enough to tell her there was an improvement.
She picked up her hand and walked around the edge of the bed until she reached the stool that had been placed near the head of it. Hannah lowered herself ont
Chimera: A Garrus/Shepard RomanceCHAPTER 1: SHORE LEAVE
Silence .well, not perfect silence but a familiar and comforting one nonetheless. The hum of the ship and its crew going about their daily activities was something Shepard had come to find a certain peace in. The Alliance had given her a sense of belonging and the people she met and served with gave her a sense of family. Following in her parents footsteps gave her a sense of purpose. She never expected to come as far as she had. Still, it made her sad to know that her father would never know or see what his daughter had accomplished. Standing in the cockpit with Joker looking out the window, watching the stars streak by in the vast expanse of space, she was lost in thought
"Commander? ....Joker to Shepard .Hello?"
" ..what?" she absently answered still staring out the window.
"Oh nothing, you know, just trying to fly the ship here. Waiting for your orders while the Reapers hunt our ass and Cerberus gets away the usual."
Peeved, she turn

Inspector Wolf The old lady was dead. I could smell it before I even got into the house. The whole place reeked of adrenaline, sweat, fear, copper and steel. He’d dropped her right in her living room. Chopped and chopped until she stopped moving. But I could tell I was getting close. This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
She’d been expec
