Reviews for Avatar of Victory
valkrus chapter 17 . 6/28
no offense but Annette van Trugh sound more like a human name than Asari
Icdan chapter 85 . 6/28
I'm sorry, I don't have the words to say for how much I love the story and this ending. Thank you.
Icdan chapter 46 . 6/24
This is like the 4th or 5th time I'm reading this (now finally with the ending available!) but I still have no idea what the deal with Ganon and his abnormal colour of blood is. Any chance you could explain?
Fleder chapter 1 . 4/20
This was great thank you. Urdnot Mordin was a nice touch at the end lol.
MartyrFan chapter 8 . 3/5
I've decided that, due to the length of your chapters, that I will be writing the review as I go along; I keep forgetting stuff that I like and want to comment on otherwise.

It's funny that instead of being known as "Zhao the Conqueror", the "Moon Slayer", or the "Invincible", he's just "some jackass".

It makes sense that the "Heretic" Geth would be calling the mainstream Geth heretics. If the Heretic Geth were heretics, what were they being heretics from?

I never liked that Fai Dan killed himself; the other colonists were saved, so why wasn't he?

And the next ME2/ME3 character to be revealed is another favorite: Legion! It's interesting that the Geth who want to get rid of organics act more like organics than the mainstream Geth.

Having the Thorian be a spirit was an interesting take. Again, I'm really enjoying your crossover here and I look forward to continue reading it.
MartyrFan chapter 7 . 3/5
Wrex is one of my favorite characters from Mass Effect and I'm glad you're utilizing him so much.

I take it that animals from Earth, our Earth, are instead living on other planets? That makes sense, considering the very strange wildlife of Avatar Earth. Parrots and ducks on Palaven, and sheep on Rannoch; it's interesting that you're putting them on dextro planets.
MartyrFan chapter 6 . 3/5
I like that you're taking names that wouldn't make sense in the Avatar world, such as "Normandy", and figuring out alternate ways for them to make sense. Exchanging "Sol" and "Luna" for "Agni" and "Yue" was very fitting.

Also, I like that you're coming up with explanations for game mechanics in the real world, like the Mako being able to go up 90 degree slopes and stuff like that.

Also, it was cool to see James Vega so soon. I wonder what other characters from ME2 and ME3 we'll be seeing sooner as well.
MartyrFan chapter 5 . 3/5
The alternating between Liara and Shepard's POVs while in the latter's mind/soul was interesting. I like that you're taking stuff from Mass Effect's current cycle (likes names and weapons) and having it be a part of the "Cycle", kind of like BioShock Infinite's Constants and Variables, just within the same universe.

Also, I can guess the new Reaper weapon that attacked the Prothean Avatar: A Banshee. Those things are awful.
MartyrFan chapter 4 . 3/5
Doesn't matter if you're going up against airbenders or not, always look up.

I like that you took Liara's dialogue if you save her for last and used it for the first mission anyway; it makes sense that she wouldn't be in good shape even if Therum was visited first. In my first playthrough, I went to Feros first because I figured that I should save it, keep it from becoming another Eden Prime. After learning of Liara's fate if you save her for last, I did her mission first in my second playthrough.

BTW, having Shepard go from Renegade to Paragon is good for character development, and therefore for the story.
MartyrFan chapter 3 . 3/5
I forgot to mention in the last review that making Wrex an Earthbender, or a "Thunderwalker" is super-fitting; Krogan are definitely stubborn.

I like that you're having the side characters dealing with the side quests, and that you had Kaidan come up with a better way of finding and scanning the Keepers. It definitely brings some realism to Mass Effect.
MartyrFan chapter 2 . 3/4
"Korra's Den"? Nice! Again, I love how you merge Mass Effect and Avatar together. Also, the "My Cabbages" moment was classic. I also like how you're smoothing out the storyline, like with how you got Garrus and Wrex on the squad so quickly; as much as I love Mass Effect, its storyline can overly long.
MartyrFan chapter 1 . 3/4
I came across this fic a while ago; I didn't commit to really reading and reviewing it as I hadn't played Mass Effect at the time. As I've now played the Mass Effect trilogy twice now, it's about time that I sat down and read it.

I'm liking your departures from Mass Effect canon and how you've merged the world of Avatar with that of Mass Effect. I'd like to know why you decided to have Jack show up so early in the story and why she has parents and is Alliance military. I'm glad for her that she has parents in this story; she needs people.

I really enjoyed reading this, and I'm looking forward to reading more. Have a good one, and happy writing!
jaffa3 chapter 22 . 3/3
A Newfie huh? As a Canadian I can appreciate that.
Guest chapter 40 . 2/28
You know it's ridiculous when Shepard behaves all the time in some way that makes Zaed look civilized and at the same time has enough insight to speak as some paragon.
thecactusman17 chapter 1 . 8/25/2022
I began reading this, I think, in 2013. I was shocked by the great characters, the attention to detail, the nearly flawless blending of two so completely opposed universes. When the updates stopped in 2015, I was patient. When a year went by, I was disappointed. Less than 3 months before you updated I went to reddit's fanfiction board and asked if anyone could confirm if you were even alive - literally. I didn't see news of the new updates until a year later and I actually broke down a bit thankful that you were still kicking.

I just finished reading the whole of Avatar of Victory. I was delighted to rediscover what had captured my attention in the first place and even moreso to see that 5 years had been spent obviously agonizing over the finale. This may be the greatest piece of fanfiction ever made in scope and execution if not popular success. Thank you for pursuing and finishing this labor of love. Thank you for pushing yourself through the dark times to rediscover your passion. I hope that you have found your own victory in completing this project.
