* '' Comments'': Part of DarkDanny's PTSD series which is a series of interconnected stories based around the misery of fighting the Reapers. This story takes a break from Shepard and instead focuses around a turian and a human military officers trapped on Eden Prime after the Reapers hit. Darkdanny has proven himself time and time again with writing original characters, This story is no different and with his new one scene a chapter policy he has blown through this story in record time and with minimal errors. Warning: I needed tissues at the end of it.

* ''Comments'': The author openly uses some concept from other universes, so, for example, while the First Contact with the Council goes smoothly enough, it's not humanity's true First Contact [[spoiler:That one was with the Blacklight Virus from ''{{VideoGame/Prototype}}'', which had to be taken out with the M.D. from ''Film/EndersGame'']]. A rare fic where Shepard is neither John nor Jane (he's Frank). The guy earns his War Hero background and N7 rank [[spoiler:[[CrazyAwesome Fighting off Batarians and Collectors alongside Wrex and Tali.]]]] Then he's sent to [[spoiler:find the Collectors. With Saren on his ship.]]

* Comments: Currently on a bit of a slow burn, [[TropesAreNotBad not that the fans mind]] due to it thankfully averting Mass Effect as the ButtMonkey of crossover fanfics, its focus on cultural clash, and worldbuilding. I don't mind, anyway.

* Comments: I stumbled on this gem and thought I'd share it with everyone. I especially like the initial intrigue with the alien crew and Teiwaz/Turbines/Tekkadan, as well as the interactions betwee the humans and aliens.

* Seconded , this guy is incredible, he's basically re-written the entire backstory and setting of Mass Effect with hints of Warhammer40k and Shadowrun, without lots of blatant references. I really recommend the Cerberus Files, a complete document on the histories and militarys of the asari and salarians.

* ''Comments'': If you're already familiar with and enjoyed the Ciaphas Cain books set in the Warhammer40k universe, you should enjoy this fic as well. It's sets up Shepard as a pragmatic soul that always wants to paint himself as a self-serving Fake Ultimate Hero with good luck for getting into escalating scraps--all the while showing extraordinary heroism that belays his self-deprecation. The internal monologue is quite funny, lampshading many of the game's somewhat nonsensical situations. Furthermore, the interactions between the squad members is a joy to read, seeing their relationships grow from strained to a band of brothers forged in battle. I'm surprised nobody had already posted this one--especially the Warhammer40k/ME fans among us that I see enjoyed Dreadnaught!Shepard in Iron Rebirth below. --Bufu

** YMMV. It can be interesting, but the primary appeal of Ciaphas Cain is not only the FakeUltimateHero that is zig-zagged, but also the over the top nature of Warhammer40k being Lampshaded. Cain being a good commissar instead of a BadBoss, Inquisitor Vail being competent, etc. Without those elements, the fic is enjoyable, but (arguably) not to the same degree that the Ciaphas Cain series is.

** A curious thought experiment, with realistic reactions and details that makes humanity truly terrifying in a galaxy that is increasingly insane and brutal. Imagine a bit of TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}, Franchise/MassEffect, StarWars, and give all of those an underdog mentality and you'd gave something not unlike this story.

* ''Synopsis:'' A cross over with ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': While on their way to battle the Greenskins, Captain Malleus of the Sons of Thunder and his command squad are hit by a shock attack gun and blasted all the way back to the early 3rd millenium. Shepard is dead, human colonies are disapearing and its time for the Astartes to do what the Astartes were made to do. Long, well written and finished.
