* ''Synopsis'':''Naruto wakes ten years in the future with no memory of what happened to get him there. Following the only clue he can find, he embarks on a mission to find and bring home Sasuke and Sakura who are lost in a galaxy threatened by Reapers.
* ''Comments'': At first, it may SEEM like a sequel fic, but the author does not have any other Mass effect/Naruto fics. It's actually pretty good, if a little bit shocking due to the fact that [[spoiler: Naruto was indoctrinated and apparently turned into an asshole.]]

Join controversial Human Spectre John Shepard ''and'' Lt. Commander Jane Hunter as they hunt down the rogue Spectre Saren.

* ''Synopsis'': With nothing left for him in the galaxy but empty space and idle time, Alex Mercer finds himself recruited in Commander Shepard's fight against the Collectors. Crossover with Prototype.
* ''Comments'': A rather humorous fic if I ever saw one. Mercer's hyjinks driving Shepard bonkers is too much for anyone to resist. The only real flaw, as admitted by the author is the slight bit of over focusing on Alex, though it is almost always bearable.

* ''Synopsis'': The Exaltation of the Unconquered Sun is a tricky thing. Especially when it doesn't come with an manual. Jane Shepard, who was able to talk Spectres into suicide before getting a spiritual superweapon grafted to her soul, has a new advantage. Crossover with Exalted.
* ''Comments'': It's written by the same author who wrote ''Fanfic/NobodyDies''. Notable moments include [[spoiler: Shepard literally punching the Kepral's Syndrome out of Thane.]]

* ''Synopsis'': The empty years between the present day and the discovery of the Prothean Ruins on Mars are filled in with the three VideoGame/DeusEx games... and end with anti-aug fanatics in control. Humanity is a bioconservative shadow of its canon glory. But fear not, HonestCorporateExecutive [[VideoGame/DeusExHumanRevolution David Sarif]] saw it all coming, and preserved his technology, researchers, himself, and Adam Jensen as {{Human Popsicle}}s. Unfortunately, after more than a century on ice, only Adam made it to the 2170's - and barely makes it off Earth ahead of the [[TorchesAndPitchforks torch-waving]] {{Muggles}}. But even off-world, Adam just can't stay out of trouble he never asked for. His first attempt to put down roots is on [[http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Elysium Elysium]], and only his ([[GasLeakCoverup suppressed]]!) rescue of the colony from batarian raiders enables him to leave the planet intact. He seems to find a home on the Citadel itself, distinguishing himself as Garrus Vakarian's partner in C-Sec. [[spoiler:Only Commander Shepard, fresh from the attack on Eden Prime, gets herself assassinated hours after she sets foot on the Citadel.]] Adam Jensen never asked for this, but ''someone'' has to [[spoiler:stop Saren]] - and he's better equipped than anyone else in the galaxy to do it.
* ''Comments'': Conspiracies, cyborgs and snark hit the Mass Effect universe hard enough to knock out a charging krogan. The author is a transhumanist who was disappointed with VideoGame/MassEffect3's endings, and has chosen this combination of extropian promise and old-fashioned badass to set it right. Prepare for asari terrorists taken out with thrown fridges, naive sentinels driven to distraction with CASIE mods, and krogan sucker-punched by inert ultra-tensile carbon fists. Be warned that it takes a while to get into gear, though, so try to stick with it at least four chapters. Also, [=IgnusDei=] was [[http://ignusdei.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=deus+ex personally involved]] with the development of DX:HR - at least to the point of having designed several set pieces.

* ''Recomended'' by drsdino
* ''Synopsis'': On the dawn of the 27th century, the UNSC discovers a Mass Relay, and unlock its power. What follows not only includes making contact with new species and making new friends, but making new enemies as well, and the entire galaxy will shake.
* ''Comments'': An interesting fan fiction, has some typos and very long Author Notes that boil down to either swear ridden ranting, or odd tangents that descend into babbling. But it has interesting characters, character development. And best of all?... NO STAR CHILD HURRAY!

''[[Fanfic/MassEffectClashOfCivilizations Mass Effect: Clash of Civilizations]]'' by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/2852289/ Eterna1Soldier]]
* ''Recomended'' by @/MetaSkipper, [=MetalKing1417=]
* ''Synopsis'': In 2157 a Citadel Council exploratory vessel is tasked with opening a dormant Relay into unknown regions of the galaxy. What they find is something they never expected. What happens when two civilizations centered around different technologies clash?
* ''Comments'': This fic explores well the implications of two cultures meeting. The characters have stayed true, and the OCs are well-fleshed out. The space battle scene is also written well, being more than one side has bigger guns, hence they win. Overall, a well-written fic, though the author's long update times are to be noted.
* Now has its own trope page.

* ''Synopsis'': When the Reapers see the threat Shepard poses, they enact a backup plan millions of years old. A single Reaper will unleash his fury and two galaxies will never be the same. Stargate [=SG1=]/Mass Effect
* ''Comments'': The original wasn't anything special, but the redux fixes the majority of the issues and delivers. Does a good job mixing ME story with SG-1 Season 8, and characterizations are spot on and entertaining. ''Especially'' Garrus as a [[DeadpanSnarker Badass Snarker]]. Takes place immediately after Horizon, and before ''New Order Part 1'', and merges the two universes together. [=MShep=] as a Paragon who's turned Renegade. Has a healthy mix of drama, action/adventure, with a good dose of humor. Takes awhile to get into the main story, but well worth it.

* ''Fandoms'': WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender, Franchise/MassEffect
* ''Synopsis'': A blend of the Avatar and Mass Effect universes in that the Earth of A:TLA replaces our Earth. What this means for the universe besides Shepard being the Avatar is that Bending is a present and practiced phenomenon among all the races of the Citadel as well as the presence of spirits and certain other aspects of the Avatar universe. Interesting not just because of the crossover itself but because it shows an Avatar who is fundamentally broken and has spent most of her life (including parts of this story) making things worse for herself rather than the spiritual growth that we've seen the other Avatars go through. Fight scenes are excellent and detailed, with most enemies that Shepard faces being competent, and not just because some of them are better at bending then she is. Canon names being included in regard to humans actually does get explained so don't let that throw you off.

* ''Synopsis'': A crossover with the Paradox mod for ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3''. It is the year 2183, and Humanity is still divided. Since the wholesale slaughter of the Turian Expeditionary Fleet at Shanxi by the highly-advanced forces of the Soviet Union and the Allied Federation of Planets, humankind has been attempting to repair the damage caused by the war. In a show of cooperation and trust, Commissar-Commander Shepherd and Lieutenant Alenko are sent with their teams in a joint mission, along with Spectre Garrus Vakarian, to investigate claims of an attack on the human colony of Eden Prime. What they find there sets in motion a chain of events that could spell the doom of every sapient species in the galaxy.
* ''Comments'': A crossover with the writer's already insane mod for Red Alert 3, and heavily inspired by the writings of Peptuck, this is crack fiction that takes itself very seriously. Shepherd as a commie? Time-travelling jet troopers with laser guns? Transorbital Normandy-sized tanks? Roman cyberpunk Turian mercenaries with 80s mohawks? This is Mass Effect crossed over with Red Alert and then turned all the way up to eleven. If you fancy something incredibly silly that manages to take itself very seriously, read it.

* ''Comments'': A single Commander Shepard is already pretty damn {{Badass}}, but putting three different combinations of Shepard's backgrounds together just takes the awesome UpToEleven. The three authors who co-write this fanfic work together very well, and manage to make their respective Shepards believable. The action sequences are brilliant, the pacing fast but not rushed, and the exploration of the Shepards' relationship with their Love Interests are handled sensitively. All in all, a very entertaining read.

* ''Comments'': Conspiracies, cyborgs and snark hit the Mass Effect universe hard enough to knock out a charging krogan. The author is a transhumanist who was disappointed with VideoGame/MassEffect3's endings, and has chosen this combination of extropian promise and old-fashioned BadAss to set it right. Prepare for asari terrorists taken out with thrown fridges, naive sentinels driven to distraction with CASIE mods, and krogan sucker-punched by inert ultra-tensile carbon fists. Be warned that it takes a while to get into gear, though, so try to stick with it at least four chapters. Also, [=IgnusDei=] was [[http://ignusdei.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=deus+ex personally involved]] with the development of DX:HR - at least to the point of having designed several set pieces.

** digiman619: I second this; even after the Extended Cut came out, it still gives the finality that you want, as the Extended Cut just gave a "Things aren't ''totally'' screwed, we'll get over it" ending, and this gives finality not only to the universe, but to the people you saved the galaxy with and that meant something to you.
