** Liara names one geth [[GloriousShotgunPrincess Wuffles.]] It's not the same one, and is a mook who lasts all of three lines before he gets mowed down.

* OppositesAttract: Shepard and Liara when they start dating. Liara is a genius who earned her doctorate (or equivalent) early, Shepard barely passed high school. Liara at first runs away from any fight she gets into, Shepard is an N7 graduate who set a new record for getting through the program. Liara is a CloudCuckoolander, whereas Shepard is very down-to-earth (which leads to her serving as the CloudCuckoolandersMinder for Liara).

* [[spoiler:AwfulTruth: The asari were originally created by the Reapers, to serve as a sleeper weapon they could MindControl en masse. Liara goes into a HeroicBSOD when she finds out. Javik even lampshades it afterwards.]]

** As of chapter 34, we also have references to the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion The Sea of Dirac]] and a Turian (who in the Avatar of Victory universe are Romanesque, and use latin, which of course never existed in the Avatar's world) organization whose motto is [[Wiki/SCPFoundation Tuti Teneti Protego]].

** There are also a number of subtle changes in spelling and such for human names, bringing them more in line with the Asiatic names of the Avatar setting. For instance, Joker's real name goes from Jeff Moreau to Jet Moro, Captain Bailey to Bei-Li, and so on.


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler:This culminates in a nasty fight between Liara and Shepard over her drinking later on, which nearly destroys their relationship. Shepard's love for Liara pushes her to moderate her drinking, and the two eventually reconcile.]]

** As with Golen's other works in the Avatarverse, there's also a good deal of work put into the Avatar side of the backstory, creating a history going back thousands of years and developing several more locations and cultures than canon had a chance to explore.



* FusionFic: The Avatar world replaced Mass Effect's Earth. Thus, we get various mash-ups, like "Chora's Den," a BadGuyBar and strip club, getting turned into "Korra's Den," a theme bar based on the Roaring Twenties that WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra took place in. It's not a strip club, either. Also, it turns out that bending is not unique to humans- pretty much every race has benders of one kind or another.

** [[spoiler: Zig-zagged with Tela Vasir. Whereas in canon, she worked for the Shadow Broker and tried to kill Liara and Shepard, in this version, she survives... because ''Jondam Bau'', a Spectre that you meet in the third game, takes her place. And he's supposed to survive (if you do it right).]]

** Although post-season two, some of Varrick's traits have been incorporated into Weaver, most notably having an assistant named "Su Li," and occasionally asking her to 'Do the thing.'

''Omega'' is actually the remnants of the original Sol system, from millions of years ago, and that it was ''our'' earth, or something like it, that was the precursor race that kicked off the whole cycle. Unfortunately, they fell to shadowy spirits who formed the First Reaper, and scattered life across the galaxy.]]

** [[spoiler: As in Mass Effect canon, despite starting from much nobler intentions, Weaver ultimately succumbs to indoctrination, though he accepts it and gracefully--more or less--bows out of action and sets Samsara/Phoenix on the path to self-destruction, rather than fighting to the bitter end against Shepard.]]

* RuleOfFunny: Combined with GameplayAndStorySegregation, is why despite Shepard going straight to Therum to recover Doctor T'Soni (Liara), Liara believes that Shepard and her party are hallucinations. In the game, this only happens if you recruit Liara after doing many, ''many'' other missions before recruiting her (such as Feros and Noveria).

Added DiffLines:

** Chapter 80: [[spoiler: We learn the true history of the Reaper cycle, how the galaxy is descended from ''us'' [[EarthAllAlong and our Earth]], who seeded the galaxy with life because they were the first sapient species, and how the Reapers arose from a race, the shadowed ones, that sought to dominate them. Moreover, bending itself was created as a weapon to fight back against this malignant species, and they in turn created the Harbinger to crush humanity. All this is revealed by a ''good'' Reaper, Abentus, and the Pantokrator, an AI akin to God created by the first humanity and the creator of Raava (and thus indirectly of the Avatar cycle itself).]]

** AdaptationalBadass: While Grunt was already pretty strong, he was still a vanilla krogan in the source material- he was just a really strong krogan who hit things, "Perfect Krogan" genetics and upgrades nonwithstanding, especially given that the other krogan squadmate you had had previously (Wrex) was capable of doing biotics. This fic fixes this by making Grunt everything he was in the original, but also makes him a Shaman. In a world where spirits exist and have great influence on the real world, this means that he can go around obstacles that would normally be closed, tame thresher maws, and even convince other people's weapons to backfire on them by communing with them, via a BadassFingerSnap. Oh, and he actually managed to do better than ''Wrex'' in the Rite- Wrex was the last to ''kill'' a Thresher Maw. Grunt... managed to ''tame'' a Maw, and can now summon it like it's a Pokemon. Many of Shepard's other teammates also qualify: Wrex is an earthbender with centuries of experience, Tali learns how to waterbend in addition to her engineering skills, and bending overall is becoming more and more widespread throughout the galaxy after humanity made contact.
