Lost in the void, no place to go, I think I'll stop, and watch the show.

19/2/19

So, um, A New Player in the Force is on hold for a while as I have issues to deal with regarding my health.
I should be able to get back to the story in a few months, but nothing is certain while I await the medical results and decide with my family how to handle things.


4/5/19

At the beginning of February, I was promoted at work, which means more office hours, and less time to get to this - since my family comes first.
In mid-February, I was diagnosed with Leukaemia. That knocked me right off, and the treatments and meds make me tired to such a degree that I have struggled to even read the stories I follow, let alone continue this.
I am, however, starting to get better, though the update speed is dependent on previously mentioned work, family and treatment schedules.


4/6/19

Thanks for all the messages of support regarding my illness.
Bloodwork suggests it is not currently life-threatening, so I hopefully can just take meds for a year or 2 to help clear the leukaemia.


9/7/20
Been a while since I updated my profile.
I'm doing fine in real life. I'm taking regular medication for my leukaemia but I'm otherwise fine.

A collection of Cerberus documents providing insight into alien history, biology, cultures and military forces of the asari, turians, and salarians.

Of Sheep and Battle Chicken by LogicalPremise reviews
My AU retelling of ME1 in a darker, sinister universe. Much darker and more realistic views of the SA and the Citadel Council, a more dangerous, involved Cerberus, and a more conflicted Saren and Benezia.
