I love the way you depict Rex I feel like most stories either play him as a goofy nice guy who just likes to scale or someone who is almost completely evil himself when in reality you were version I feel like is the most accurate he split it down the middle he is graph and aggressive but he also is a kind heart he walk that line and I love your depiction of him

Can someone please explain to me why every Tali/Shepard writer feels it necessary to use flashy, complicated Quarian lore to explain why Tali is so obsessed with him, and depressed that he is dead? Why do her feelings need to be justified by saying that Quarians have some special super-emotion or something like that makes them more emotional than humans? It would be much more relatable to simply say she loved him and is depressed that he is dead. Readers aren't dumb, we can understand that and sympathize with her without needing special lore to make that make sense. Personally, I find Tali a really relatable and likeable character becuase she seems to have problems and emotions that humans in real life struggle with, in comparison to other Mass Effect characters who are "larger than life", so to speak. I see a lot of myself in her. I think your drama would have been better served if you humanized her. That's an inspiring message, to say that we can find similar qualities in other species.

Oh come on, you're really going to make Joker a proxy for shepherd by having him romance a quarian girl who just happens eerily similar to Tali? That's cheesy AF. Their relationship even has all the cringy tropes of the Sheperd/Tali ship fics. Yeah, I like those tropes but only when it's Sheperd and Tali doing them. Joker is not Shep, and making him the exact same is kinda uninspired to be honest. And it makes Shep seem like a less interesting character if someone else is coping his schtick. It comes off like you just wanted to write Shep/Tali but couldn't becuase Shep isn't back yet, so you used Joker and Lia as proxy. It's really contrived.
However, I really dig the story so far as a whole. You have good dialogue, and write the characters competently without going completely out of character, unlike some authors who completely change Tali's personality by interjecting a lot of weird Quarian lore. You have some very creative ideas for bridging the series, and some of your plot threads sound like bright ideas that could have been used in a novel, had Bioware not obviously wanted to spoil the plot of ME2. And I have to respect that you're not beating the dead horse for 20 chapters with the whole "Hey guys, do you get that Tali is sad?" thing. All in all, and this is a very captivating read.

Absolutely fantastic story! I loved everything about it, especially the Joker/Lia pairing, which was a great addition. You did an excellent job setting the groundwork for events in ME2, and explaining how each character found themselves in those events. Great job, moving on to For We Are Many.

It's, a nice fic but the Joker/Lia pairing is a little offputting considering how he is set to be involved with EDI in ME3, and considering that they never even know of each others existence in any of the games.
