Interesting start! I'm taken... will continue.
You seem to nail the characters of Tali, Wrex, and Garrus really well, kudos!

I love the way you gave more backstory to all these characters and did more with them then almost any author ive seen before and the collector base had a tenseness ive rarely seen before, still you never expanded on that plan EDI came up with that needed talis help, and the migrant fleet portions were some of the worst I have encountered short of the extreme fringes of the fandom that cause wtf moments, even korris in the nursery which I think was supposed to make him seem nicer only came across as him abusing power and being a jerk while giving all the kids parents and gerral the middle finger in the to mention the inconsistently your version of quarian childhoods.

Just finished chapter 20 and this is the first time i saw you make a mistake with the lore albeit only in talis section. Firstly the rayya is one of the 3 live ships and being where tali grew up the whole section was just strange, as it relied on talis first experiences with a live ship, plus what you said about a small population. Second is that tali would be only 15 at the time and her mother didnt die until she was 17ish, so with pilgrimage hapening at around 22 rael was suggesting that Kal was hitting on his daughter with a 7 year age it into grown man dating middle schooler levels of creepy.

I'm favoriting this just for the "Scientist Salarian" lyrics. They're absolutely brilliant!

Pretty good, but I honestly did not like how Miranda was being treated. I have seen too many bashing her without even trying to consider her or get to know her on a much deeper level. Her sister is the most important thing. Yes she may agree with Cerberus' goals, but I doubt she would have joined them if it werent for her looking for protection for her sister. Attacking her because of what TIM did is too far because that in turn is what allowed TIM to use her sister (who is only 14 according to your story) against her...an innocent child.
Her cold personality is a protection mechanism for her, and that is used because of her childhood. She is insecure about herself and her assets because of what she endured as a child by her father and most likely the staff. Trust is not easy for her, and she has no reason to trust Shepard or his friends when they hate Cerberus and are mean to her every chance they get because of her affiliation. From the very start Shepard and his pals would not even consider some of her ideas, which she did have some good ones. So they really cant be shocked when she retaliates every time. And the fact that later, after Shep issues war against Cerberus, Miranda is the only on taken off the ship, rest of cerberus crew is on the ship still, is just cruel. Shep and Garrus (and even Jack) have had it out for her since the very beginning, never giving her a chance to prove how good she can be. Chakwas is the only one that seem to generally care about Miranda's well-being. Jacob only cares because of his previous relationship with her.
Never have been a huge fan of Tali honestly. She is a good character, but I only see her as a friend. Nothing beyond that. Luckily story was too much into Shep/Tali romance which was a plus for me.
I am not trying to tear up your story, because it was very good in other ways, I just dont much like how Miranda's character was done. I feel more sorry for her than the rest of the characters. I was sad to see Grunt not even stand up for another 'tank bred' just because Shep is his battlemaster. Nobody deserves what they have been doing to her.

Half a million words of great writing. Put a whole new perspective on ME2, and made me want to replay it.
| Tzu Con chapter 5 . 4/12/2017
I've been linked to your story specifically for the lyrics to "Scientist Salarian" that you wrote. I am extremely impressed and wanted to write a short message to pass along my sincere appreciation. They are inventive, tuneful and witty, and you should be proud of them.
Best wishes, Tzu.

I love the idea that Miranda made up the whole thing and framed Wilson, because it totally makes sense! There isn't any better way to wake Shepard up and keep him confused, keep him from asking too many questions, than to distract him with murderbots and a "traitor" to hunt down.

The five legged fetus thing absolutely floored me. Tells me so much about Wilson's character, in such a small anecdote.
I read this a few years ago, and am reading it again and finding these little details.
Amazing work. I'm happy this exists.

I know this is a little bit old now and I doubt you'll read this, but this is one of the better stories I've ever read on this site.
You've struck a balance between fan-service, narrative and pure quality that I doubt some fully fledged writers can achieve. You've clearly mastered the art of constructing characters and evolving them. Not only is this novel an incredible addition to Mass Effect, but it's also an incredible stand-alone piece as well. Your dedication to it was, and still is, inspiring.
So yeah, I'd just like to say thanks. Thanks for the countless hours of quality reading and for the countless more hours you spent producing a piece of work that you really should've earned some serious cash for. Cheers, AssaultSloth.
