How Spec Ops: The Line Could Have Ended by Mark123100

  • Recommended by: Zoic Alcelaphine, HOSPES_VISITANT
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Everyone hates Captain Martin Walker, the sociopathic, crazed soldier who killed a bunch of innocent people because he wanted to be a hero. But what if he chose not to do that?
  • Comments: A short Fix Fic where Adams, Lugo and Walker choose do the sensible thing, based on the earlier versions of Spec Ops: The Line where leaving early on was still an option.
    • Although short, the Fix Fic provides the lenses of an alternate opportunity where, instead of blindingly following orders, Adams and Lugo have the sense to talk out about Walker and giving both of them a choice to either do right or do wrong. The only thing that we are displeased with is the rant at the ending. (HOSPES_VISITANT)

Crossover Fics

Puella Magi: Linebreaker by Face Meltor
  • Recommended by: Keita Takesato
  • Status: Complete
  • Crossover with Puella Magi Madoka Magica
  • Synopsis: A one-chapter fanfic which explores an alternate take during the ultimate chapter of the game, only where Captain Walker is replaced by Sayaka Miki (and the squad only consists of Sayaka and Madoka, who replaces Lugo), and John Konrad being replaced by Mami Tomoe.
  • Comments: Although there is not much difference between the flow of the original story and the fanfic, it reinforces the idea that both the character of Captain Walker and Sayaka Miki is not that different in their predicaments, given on how both of them into the very monsters they tried to crush all these times in the name of becoming a hero, which is a very interesting counterpart comparisons between both characters.
