Author has written 12 stories for Mass Effect.
9/18/21: Posted the penultimate chapter of the FTWD rewrite.
8/15/21: Up to chapter 69 (nice). In the original edit, Chapter 69 was the final chapter. This version isn't any longer. In fact, it will end up being almost 30K words shorter as I'm chopping on average about 400 words from each chapter. The chapter count has gone up because I've split up some 6,000-7000 word chapters into separate sections to make them flow better. As the last chapters were the longest, I've still got more culling and splitting to do, so there's still a ways to go.
7/13/21: Up to chapter 47 on FTWD re-edit, about halfway through. It's funny - when I started this project, I had no idea it would end up being as long as three full-length novels.
6/23/21: OK so you can't insert chapters here on FFN. I was editing For Tomorrow We Die in place and wound up having to delete/rearrange some stuff and long story short blew out everything past Chapter 32. I'll be dropping in the re-edited chapters afterward. It's mostly tightening up the existing text with a few new scenes here and there to replace expository dialogue.
Hi, I'm ElectricZ, ("Hi ElectricZ") and I write Mass Effect fanfiction.
In my fics, I tried to stay away from trying to retell the events in the games, mainly because they've already been done. Instead, I like writing about what happens behind the scenes and in-between missions, figuring out what makes the ME squad tick, and what might transpire to get a group of people who have good reason to kill each other work together to save the universe.
I originally wrote fics as loosely connected one-shots, but over time three of them have become an actual, connected trilogy. Taking place towards the end of Mass Effect 2, they focus the affects of Legion's arrival on the Normandy, turning the geth-quarian conflict into a flashpoint for the coming reaper invasion.
"For Tomorrow" Trilogy:
1. Dancer in the Dark
Mass Effect 2:
1. Just Like Old Times (Garrus and Mordin have been recruited, and Tali has just been brought aboard.)
Mass Effect 3:
1. The Peanut Butter Principle (After Priority: Palaven)
The last two fics are both alternate endings for Mass Effect 3 written as a way to cope with what I felt after finishing the game and aren't necessarily canon among my own fics.
Thanks again for reading, especially to those who've taken the time to review and comment on them.
