Author has written 2 stories for Mass Effect, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

Lordy it's been a while.

My apologies to readers one and all - I have had a severe case of LIFE the past few months. While I still suffer from LIFE, I am determined to devote less of my time to it and more to you.

Also, I'm incorporating Omega and Citadel into BiA. Citadel'll be in the past (obviously), but I have PLANS for Omega...

Ok, RANT TIME

Like many Mass Effect fans, I finished ME3 in full WTF BOOM mode. I wanted to punch Bioware. What had they been thinking!!! The ending wasn't just dumb, it was deliberately counterintuitive.

So I steamed for a bit, and then after a while it suddenly came over me.

What if Bioware gave us what we always wanted - ultimate choice? What if they knew that by writing such a terrible ending that the overwhelming response would be 'Fuck this, I'm writing a better one.'? What if this was their goal? What if by denying us choice, they'd actually given it to us?

Thus Mass Effect: Brothers in Arms was born...
