* ArbitrarySkepticism: Feron expressed doubt about the Courier's origins, even after ''the Courier himself had asked about how biotics work''. This was lampshaded by the Courier and Liara. Eventually, he relented after the Courier showed his memories to Liara in a mind-meld.

to:

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: [[spoiler:If Harland had stopped the experiment on the orb, that would mean none of her staff would experience horrific deaths or [[AFateWorseThanDeath worse]] and prompting Shepard to swoop in and clean up her mess.]]
* DwindlingParty: Not to Shepard and her crew. Prior to the events of the fic, there were dozens of people at the facility. By the time the orb arrived and Shepard's arrival afterwards, only six of the crew remained. [[spoiler: And that number dropped to two: Dr. Harland and a security guard, Chelsey Fayne, rendered unconscious due to stress and lack of sleep.]]

* ItCanThink: The Merged had lost their sanity but they were able to retain some form of their intelligence. They pick up and use guns as well as open doors and other basic motor actions.

** Arthur Newton gets his name from both Creator/ArthurCClarke
and other basic actions.
* SciFiHorror
Creator/IsaacNewton, much like [[Franchise/DeadSpace Isaac Clarke]]. On that front, Arthur resembles a biotic version of [[VideoGame/DeadSpace3 John Carver]].

Added DiffLines:

* QueerRomance: It's shaping itself up to be one between Eric and Garrett.

The second entry is called ''All the World's a Stage''. The [[Creator/PeterCapaldi Twelfth]] [[Series/DoctorWho Doctor]] has been brought to the Franchise/{{Fallout}} universe after receiving a distress signal. He sets out to investigate, meeting up with Jocelyn Song, [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} the Lone Wanderer]]. The title references the well-known phrase from Theatre/AsYouLikeIt. Time will tell if additional references to Shakespeare will be made. Nord has advertised it'll cross over with another setting, which is revealed to be the [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/SoulSeries Soul Calibur]] universe]]. It can be read [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11715058/1/All-The-World-s-a-Stage here]]. Like his other works below, you can also find it on Website/SpaceBattlesDotCom and Sufficient Velocity [[https://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/all-the-worlds-a-stage-doctor-who-fallout-spoiler.363547/ here]] and [[https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/threads/all-the-worlds-a-stage-doctor-who-fallout-spoiler.23816/ here]] respectively.

* [[WorldOfSnark Multiverse of Snark]]: A vast majority of the characters in the series are notable snarkers, especially Ethan Sunderland, the Courier. Even others who aren't known for being smartasses get opportunities to make some quips, including Jocelyn Song, aka the Lone Wanderer, and Eric Grimes.

* [[WorldOfSnark Multiverse RealityEnsues:
** ''Redemption in the Stars'':
*** After their defeat at the hands
of Snark]]: [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas the Courier]], Blue Suns amped up their security forces, overwhelming him, Liara, and Feron at the abandoned mining facility. [[spoiler:The sudden turn of events forced the Courier to flee, leaving Liara and Feron behind.]]
*** When the Courier took a Blue Suns Centurion from a scouting group hostage, his demands were rejected as the other Blue Suns call him out on his wanton killing of their peers and attempt to distract him long enough for backup to arrive. [[spoiler: He ultimately sees through it and points out that he'll just kill the reinforcements. It worked.]]
** ''All The World's a Stage'':
*** [[VideoGame/{{Fallout3}} The Lone Wanderer]] is easily able to bulldoze through several her fights thanks to her [[PoweredArmor Power Armor]], most notably against [[spoiler:Tira when she makes a misstep]]. When you're someone who's small and lithe as well as wielding a ringblade from late-Renaissance going up against a person who's in large-frame armor and wielding high-tech weaponry, you're going to get [[CurbStomp curb-stomped]] soon if not immediately.

** ''A New Day'':
*** C-Sec discovered a good part about Eric when he arrived in the Mass Effect universe. How did they find out? By looking at his ID card. Because of his circumstances, it was implied he was under surveillance, though we don't get much beyond that. After Eric got his credentials, C-Sec brought him in to question him. When they found out he was clean, they let him go.
