Yes, it is time to read OSABC again. Pray there are more stellar updates in the follow ups and supplements when I get there.

An amazing story
| Luckenzio chapter 36 . 1/2
Unfortunately, i should have skimmed towards Shepard meeting Liara before properly starting to read the story and getting invested. I had my problems with it but was still fairly interested until reaching Therum; the interactions with Liara are so bad they single-handedly killed all motivation to continue in about two chapters.
A shame because theres a clear insane ammount of effort and time put into this, which only highlights how baffling the bottom tier quality of this aspect is.

Wow, what a ride. I love a good story that competently takes a hacksaw to canon and then Frankenstein's the whole thing. The changes and expansions to the lore, the new character dynamics (honestly, Tali and Joker is way too cute.) Everything was so much fun to read. I can't wait to get started on the rest of it. Also, loved the shades and references to other sci-fi as well.

Second time reading through and I'm glad I waited long enough for this to be semi new because this is amazing

Can’t believe I didn’t read this sooner. Great AU, the darker, gritty feel is fun to read and the OCs you added feel like they actually fit. Not just shoehorned in so you can feel more original.
The only critique I would offer is Shepard’s liberal use of fuck. She uses fuck the way most people use um and eh. I do enjoy a good outpouring of profanity, especially in damaged characters, but it did seem repetitive at points.
However in 123 chapters, it only bothered me a handful of times. Mostly, I was just captured by the colorful characters and excellent world building. Crazy great world building, my favorite part of this entire story.
Thank you for all your time and effort. I’m looking forward to the rest of your work.

I love your attention to detail in this fic. with the fleshed out interspecies relationships and a closer look at the screwed up balance between council races. I really gives the story even more impact than could be achieved in the game.
The only thing that's bugging me in the story is that you always write that Shepard is socially awkward, before she is really empathetic or says exactly the right thing, like referring to the wife of the officer getting shore leave. I think it would bring something to the story (assuming this is actually an important personality aspect of Shepard as I assume from the backstory) that it would help if Shepard would actually mess up some conversations in the beginning of the story through being cold or insensitive and you can make her more proficient later on as part of development.
I of course get that the conversations are also important for the general progress of the story, but it just rubs me the wrong way that you describe her as socially awkward, while being insightful.

while it's a pretty cool intermission giving some background to your Shepard I feel like it's kind of weird to have a report here involving some future relations of Shepard (namely that she mentions her future team in her will or her relationship with Liara)

That one reference alone is enough to ascend this story to god level

Nitpicky also confirmed. Your blurb reflects you with full accuracy.
Also holy shit, what is this level of detail? You're insane, author. It's impressive how insane you are.
(I don't think I'll manage to slog through all those 7 hundred thousand words to the end but I'll keep going for now.)
