Author has written 3 stories for Mass Effect.

Clarkes law: Any sufficiently advanced science is indisdinguishable from magic.

(Note that I only consider ME1/most of ME2 to be canon. I didn't bother finishing ME3. Indoctrinationtheory4lyfe)

Summary in brief: A rocket-scientist rockclimbing shortarse with uncontrollable sarcasm syndrome, who spends his off days alternating between pullups, idle science, and overanalysing innocuous comments. Oh yeah, and occasionally updating the abomination to the literature gods that is my collected works. Possibly the least tanned Australian you'll ever meet.

Yes, I am a scientific perfectionist. I have most of a degree in Mech-aerospace engineering and part of one in astrophysics, plus a generalised knowledge base that (False modesty aside) is pretty freaking extensive.

I'm on a haphazard schedule (And by haphazard I mean "So weighed down that it's a wonder that I haven't had a seisure"). Needless to say, this doesn't facillitate quick updating. Well, that and my habit for never releasing something untill I'm completely happy with it, and liking to have a pretty detailed texture to all my work.

Ok: MY PET PEEVES:

1. Telepathic Biotics. Just because asari are both biotic and telepathic, does not mean that biotics are telepathic. Too many people are falling into this trap. If you read the codices on the alliance biotic program, many humans hate and fear biotics because they think that they can read minds, when in reality they cannot. If they work the way that I postulate they work, a biotic might be able to SENSE mass effect fields, and hence sense other biotics, but not read their friggin minds.

2. Magical Biotics. Biotics are a means of generating a Mass-Effect field, and therefore a kinetic effect. They are not anything else.If you want an example of how to portray biotics, check out Mind Over Matter, by Eyyowlf.

Yes, Harbinger manifests yellow fields. This isn't some kind of radically different thing. It's the same fields but, unless I miss my guess, Harbinger uses its biotics to guide biologically generated plasma into the target. Not so much a force as an explosion of electrified, superhot gas.

A singularity is not actually a singularity. If it were, it'd run slap-bang into all sorts of horrible energy requirements that not even a krogan neural structure could generate the power for. The Blackstorm takes a shitload of energy to create what appears to be a true microsingularity, which an organic brain could never provide. Moreover, nothing ever gets sucked into the core of a biotic singularity, unlike the actual phenomena. What the singularity effect actually is is a chaotic package of circular forces, sustained by input from the biotic.

Stasis is not a timestop, for much the same reasons as a singularity is not a singularity. It's a containment field. The relativistic effects needed for a timestop would take a shitload of energy, which the organic brain could not produce. My guess is that its a skin-conforming barrier which prevents the entity inside from building up any momentum. This also explains how one of the high-level bastion abilities is to make the stasis field penetrable from outside.

3. Element zero is not a powersource. The Eezo core of a ship reduces its mass so that the drives can provide a meaningful acceleration. It consumes power from the fusion core of the ship.

4. Antimatter rifle.

NO. Look at the spelling. The Widow is an Anti-MateriEl rifle. This is millitary parlance for a weapon designed to punch through armour, rather than kill soldiers. The reason that the Widow is so epic is because its like using a sledgehammer to swat a fly.

5. Medigel as a kinky substance.

Kids, Medigel is an anaesthetic. It would tingle for a few seconds (cue oafish laughter), then INDUCE NUMBNESS. DONOTWANT
