are you afraid of having an original thought ?
what is the point of all this if all you do is just claim that they failed to change anything and just follow the canon plot line .. . . all that this is, is just Mass Effect with both male and female Shepard protagonist , both archetypes at both ends of the spectrum , Shepard (m) is full on renegade and Shep (F) is paragon, and the strangeness is all over the place, .. . i tried to give this a chance but seeing as you went out of your way to copy and paste the original ME story, this is pointless, frustrating and boring
'good luck 2 U'

Ah! I wasn't expecting this to happen, and not this fast... But still... Kelly... :'( Please, please, please let Joker live. I beg of you, don't let that cocky goofball of a pilot die!
Please, please, please update soon.

I read this a while ago, and I wanted to reread the older chapters because I feel as if I am missing something. I still feel I am missing something. LOLZ. Your writing is wonderful! I am so in love with this story. This chapter was indeed a rollercoaster, I feel so bad for John it is almost as if the poor guy is cursed. :( Jane has a bit more of luck on her side, and I did squee in joy when she punched him. :D LOLz. I did a reread where Miranda got a bit carried away, though why didn't she ambush/overpower John off ship? I am thinking of some devious complicated plan...
I can not wait for more, funny considering how long I took to review, and eager for more. :D

Well, there goes the hope for a happing ending. Good christ.

Honestly. Everything about John's character is honestly unlikeable in every regard Being an ass is one thing, but he's honestly grating and every time he opens his mouth. I wonder why someone hasn't shot him in it.
Renegade is alright, but he's being a real thuggish cunt who comes off as a snotty teenager. And that is something I never say. I can't really find any other way to describe him than that.

I was so excited to find this had been updated. One of my fav fictions. And this last chapter was just amazing. Poor Kelly and Joker thou...
Don't keep us waiting too long for the next one, please. Looking forward to reading more :)

well, john, given your track record so far, i don't think jack was the last to take a swing atchya. hoo boy. at least miranda's dead. might make john all mopey an' shite, but now we don't have to wonder what else she be up to.
downside, jane's out of commission. again. you know, this is kinda turning into a pattern. i might as well start calling her zelda. i mean, i still like her (mostly) but...just cause she's not a heavy hitter or an asshole like john doesn't mean jane couldn't kick ass. then again, she took direct fire from a Gatling gun, so...idk, maybe i'm being harsh. still like her more than john, though. least jane isn't bone stupid.
and yes, i did see the irony(?) of jane being...possibly killed in the same fashion as in garrus' dreams. i didn't know garrus could see the future-kinda.
anyway, i look forward to seeing jane get herself out of this mess and not wait for john and co. to rescue her. cough, hint, cough.
see you next year! ;)

I. Don't. Believe.
Killed love or not, it's Commander Shepard we're talking about. There's just no way Shepard will become sobbing mess; not in the middle of battle. Maybe later, in Normandy, but certainly not near nuke bomb about to go off.

That was a reaaallyy intense chapter. Like whoa, so much happened. I’m kind of sad because I thought Miranda would have a change of heart, but oh well, she was kind of terrible. Fantastic writing, by the way! You have no idea how excited i was to see this updated. Thanks for the amazing chapter
| Gaga Hax chapter 32 . 6/16
Holy hell! That escalated quickly. I liked the pacing though. I've missed these constantly jumping POVs of this story since the last chapter. It's great to see you back.
The action, the conversations and the thought processes of the characters are top notch as always. Actually no... More so than always. Not exactly sure why it seems that way, I'm afraid, could be just a different state of my own mind as I've read this. Either way, well done.
Also can't believe I've never mentioned that you've nailed just how much two years can change a person. Garrus and Miranda being the most notable examples. I adore this particular point and you've actually made me realize it a couple years ago. Thank you.
This is what it has all been leading up to, isn't it? I'm a bit broken up about Kelly though. She's just so lively and cheerful all the time, it sucks to see her go out like that, even if Mass Effect itself isn't too kind to her either.
Oh and I refuse to believe that Legion's gone even for a second. He was deactivated temporarily, the wording seems to be more than just hinting at that, unless I'm reading way too much into things, which I hope I'm not.
Either way, thanks for another great chapter, I will be on the look out for more!

Still reading, so there's clearly enough about the story and your writing to keep me around :)
My initial impression (after 9 chapters) still lingers, though. These are not the Shepards I know. They are stupid and unprofessional. I really wish you would fix that, I mean it took nearly 30 chapters for the two of them to even just sit down and compare notes, and when they did they were, uh... less than thorough about it /

Amazing chapter, looking forward to the next one :)
| Emy chapter 32 . 6/15
Haha you really hate Miranda, dont you.
| AwesomeCupcakez chapter 32 . 6/14
Wow, this chapter made me utterly pissed off. I mean it in a good way though. The way you're writing this story is just amazing! Felt like I wanted to kick the coffee table into the wall or something when miranda shot Kelly. Great story. Can't wait for the next chapter! :D
| Animadeus chapter 32 . 6/14
No worries in your story being four years! My story has suffered a long time struggle (which I need to fix soon) of not being done! haha.
Why do I feel like you're going to make Jane be Evil. :)
