I know it's been a while since I posted the last chapter, and I've been distracted by other writing projects. However, I'm mostly finished the next chapter, and have begun working on the remaining chapters. All that remains is for Ash to meet the crew and then the big shock ending! After this is done, I am going to write two stories continuing on from this; one story that chronicles the fight against the Reapers and the years of preparation preceding, and an accompanying romance/humor story that details daily life on the Normandy and important events in the characters' lives. That's all for this Author's Notice, and expect the next/final chapters to be up within the week.
Hope you enjoy it!
P.S. I will be taking requests or ideas for the stories about life on the Normandy!
P.P.S. I completely revised the story to try and make it more accurate for the characters, and to make it more clear. I think it works a lot better this way. What was going to be the next chapter is now chapter 6.
P.P.P.S I cut out the part about what the others did on Elysium. If you enjoyed it, I'll post it as a new story under 'Humor'. Make a request in the Comments.
