Hello hello, all you patrons and welcome back to The Lone Wolf Of The Normandy, SSJ Lone Wolf’s ME/Halo crossover that is doing its level best to asymptotically approach EclipsePheniox in quality!

Last time Logan-B312 the Noble Stu got barfed onto Eden Prime during the geth/Reaper raid, and immediately put his god-mode Forerunner augmentations to good use by blowing up a bunch of husks and geth and then mentally undressing Jane Shepard and Ash Williams. He saved Nihlus from getting shot by Saren and then immediately beat the shit out of the entire Normandy landing team for having the gall to point their guns at the giant black armored thing that showed up behind them without any warning instead of immediately dropping to their knees in abject worship of his mighty Hyper-Lethal-Vectorness. No hard feelings were had, however, and Logan proceeded to steal all the badassery in the area for himself while disarming the bombs Saren had planted at the Eden Prime docking area. Then Shepard got a headfull of Beacon pretty much as canon, only Logan got to be all Edward Culleny in giving her permission to lose consciousness before carrying her back to the ship.

Chapter Two is called *gags* ‘Never cage a Wolf’, and opens with the same goddamn disclaimer from the last chapter… as does every single goddamn chapter after this one. Then it’s on to the making-excuses bit.”

Hello everybody. Thank you for the reviews and to those who are following the story. Also thanks for letting me know about the spelling mistakes in the first chapter. I’ll go back to it soon to update it.

Spoiler alert- he never did.

Or originally it was worse.”

Dude spelled “armor” as “amour” every. Single. Time. There is no worse.

SHAD0WEN: I did put up an update note which was up for around two days before I took the other chapters off to update them.

SSJ- as it turns out, ff.net has this wonderful feature called “Reply to review”, where if you click the button on the right side of a review you’ll get a window where you can type something, and the person who wrote the review will be able to read it! Now there’s no need to include random segments of unrelated conversation in the middle of your ‘fic! Isn’t technology amazing?

That’s, like, a Web 2.0 thing, isn’t it?”

Anyway, the story proper opens with more plot regurgitation from Mass Effect 1, this time of Shepard waking up in the medical bay. Aside from some occasional misspellings, reuse of the term “infirmary exercises” in a more proper but still awkward context, and Dr. Chakwas’s medical scrubs being referred to as “a standard black alliance robes” it’s entirely unremarkable. It also goes on for the better part of three pages before Captain Anderson shows up and turns the conversation back to the power-armored elephant in the room.

“Aw yes. the Spartan. He’s caused quite the Stir among the crew since he arrived on the Normandy.” Anderson said though mostly to himself.”

“I’ve gotten the report from the others from Eden Prime plus I’ve seen the mission cameras, seeing him in action. He’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen, as is his amour.

“Come on, she lobbed that one riiiight over the plate.”

His weapons look like guns compared to the weaponry of the galaxy.”

So Spartan’s weapons, which are in fact guns, also look like guns when compared to the somewhat different guns used in the rest of the galaxy.

Please tell me this makes sense to literally anyone else…”

*The low-temperature storage facility eight sub-levels above RIFFCON plays host to a frenzied three-way firefight between the Department of Redundancy Department, the crew of Captain Obvious whose job it is to carry out his orders, and the local chapter of Tautology Club.*

I, uhh, I think I’m gonna just sit this one out.”

“However the Spartan refuses to hand them over or tell us where he got them.

Of course he does. Even though he has enough of those weapons in his little Hammerspace doodad to literally equip a small army.

But Dooooc… then other soldiers might get to fight the geth as effectively as Spartan could instead of just dying horribly, and then where would he be?”

The only thing we’ve managed to get out of him is his name which over and over again. He’s clearly military but I never heard of this UNSC before. Its possible to be some kind of black ops program….

Or a mercenary outfit, there’s always a crapton of those around.

I’ll have to investigate more into it.” Anderson told her.

“So he’s our prisoner then?” Jane asked him making the captain sigh at her.

“Yes I’m afraid so Jane, If it was up to me, I would give the man a medal for what he did on Eden Prime.

I’d give him a month’s worth of cleaning duties and a few marks on his file for sexual harassment.”

However I’m afraid he’s an unknown and thus we must treat him as a threat. So we’ll be handing him over to admiral Hackett once we reach the citadel.”

“We know he’s human,

Wait, you do? Have you even managed to take his helmet off?

so he’s the Alliance responsibility. We’ve already had a few problems but its nothing for you to worry about” The captain told her.

Oh, you’ve had more than a few problems.”

“If you’ve seen the missions cameras. Then you’ve seen what he did to the Geth unit. Ripping them apart like they were nothing to him. He took the four of us down as well. A trained N7 and a spectre. Do you really think that he will go with the Alliance freely? “Jane asked him in disbelief.

“Yes I know Shepard. That is why right at this present moment, he is surrounded by ten armed guards with weapons trained on him, so he doesn’t try anything. Nobody no matter how well trained could take out ten trained alliance soldiers, before they managed to kill him.”

This sounds like the sort of security apparatus an eight-year-old child would come up with- “And then these ten pillars are gonna have guys on them as soon as I can find enough minifigs, and those guys’ll be there so that if he ever climbs out of the pit he might be able to knock down one but then the other nine would just shoot him with crossbows and then these rubber bands are wires that’ll come down from the ceiling and shock him and then those cages over there will have lions in them that are trained to avoid the wires and…”

You’ve put a disturbing amount of thought into this.”

“I know what we’re doing is wrong and after everything he did on the planet but we have to follow protocol here. We have a very large armoured human that has never been seen before.”

That’s not wrong, that’s common sense.”

“Once the Spartan gives us the information we need and we know that he’s not a threat to humanity then he will be let go.” Anderson told her despite not liking what he was doing but he had orders.

“Understood, sir.” Jane said before hesitating for a moment.” D-did we collect Jenkins body?”

“We did, Commander. He will be shipped home to be where he belongs…with his family.” Anderson told Jane getting a small nod from her.

Aaaaand now it’s a class trip to Arlington Cemetery.

Jenkins was under her command and as his commander she failed to keep him alive. She knew it came with the territory but she still hated losing men and women under her command.

“Thank you, sir.”

“Now then. I’ve spoke Nihlus about the other turain, Saren. We’ve contacted the human ambassador to set up a meeting with the council to try and strip Saren of his spectre status. With Nihlus’s help we should be able to do that” Anderson said as he smiled at the thought of Saren behind bars.

“Saren? do you know him?” Jane asked the captain.

” I do. We work with each other around twenty years ago and even back then, he was nasty and cruel

Oh, yes, God forbid you have to serve with anyone ‘nasty’ in the military!”

and would do anything if it meant completing the mission. But most of all he Hates humans” Anderson stated making Jane raise an eyebrow but wasn’t that surprised as there was still a lot of hatred between humans and turians

“Hates humans sir?” She asked him.

Yes, that is indeed what he said.

“A lot of the other races think the same as Saren but they don’t act on it. They all think that were moving to fast and pushing anybody got of our way, but Saren will act on it” Anderson told her but Jane shook her head.

Hmmph.

You know, this doesn’t have a lot to do with Lone Wolf of the Normandy so much as it does with shitty Mass Effect Gary Stumanity ‘fics in general, but I suppose now is as good a time to mention it as any since it’s already showing up here as well. So many times these ‘fics exaggerate the tense relationship between the Systems Alliance and the Council into a full-scale persecution complex, and if the Council is given any reason at all it’s either because they’re jealous of humanity’s “obvious superiority” or because -as here- they think humans are “advancing too fast” or are too “ambitious”. There’s not a lot to say about the first one other than that it’s immensely dumb, but you know what? On the second, the Council is absolutely right.

The Systems Alliance aren’t just dicks, but they’re expansionist dicks as well.

What we see of their government and businesses are massively corrupt, no doubt contributing a great deal to the general criminal activity of the galaxy; large populations on Earth still live in what would be considered by Citadel standards abhorrent conditions (something I very much doubt is a problem on, say, Palaven), and the Alliance seems completely unconcerned with this. They’re insanely focused on colonizing new territories, many of which are claimed by other groups and many of which they seem unwilling or unable to properly survey or protect once established (it doesn’t help that their colonies are typically very small, almost like they’re establishing just enough of a presence to be able to effectively claim the entire planet and then spreading that out over as many planets as possible), and when this policy results in conflicts with the batarians or the Terminus or whoever they expect Council military and political cover when said powers retaliate. They have a strong militaristic and xenophobic tilt to their politics that spawned Cerberus, an organization whose specific purpose is to fight aliens and which seems to be at least endorsed-by-omission by the conventional government (“We disavow them, but will do jack shit to actually stop them.”). They or corporate interests related to them engage in an insane number of highly questionable research projects in areas forbidden by Council law which then immediately prove the Council technophobes right by blowing up in their faces in spectacular ways that more often than not leave a goodly number of aliens dead as well, and when they are in a position to stand up for other species like the quarians who have gotten on the wrong side of Citadel policies they resoundingly fail to do so.

And then there’s the Reapers. We see pretty solid proof that the Reapers exist because the games are played basically looking over the shoulder of Commander Shepard, but how much of that evidence ever actually makes it to the Council, and how much just remains classified with the Alliance asking the other species to take their word for its existence? They’re terrible at sharing intelligence and opening up Reaper-related sites to the wider resources of the full Council (which would be able to make much more headway on actually exploiting them), and their proposed anti-Reaper measures pretty much always place the Alliance itself front-and-center in terms of gaining additional military forces and political latitude while other species would face most of the risks.

I’m not saying that the Systems Alliance is Nazi Germany in the late 1930s, but from the perspective of Council members who probably don’t have a great deal of information on its internal political and strategic thinking it probably does look a lot like Nazi Germany in the late 1930s.

So… uhh…

So there’s that.”

“He didn’t attack Eden Prime because he hates humans.” The commander stated to him.

“I know Shepard. He was there for the beacon and whatever was on it is too dangerous for him to have.” Anderson told her.

“Don’t worry sir. We’ll bring him down” Jane said with conviction at getting the turian that had caused hundreds of humans to die on Eden Prime.

Ironically, it’s these constant reminders about how evil the bad guys are that is making me question why the bad guys need to be fought. What’s the Alliance trying to prove?”

“I know. Anyway we should be arriving at the Citadel with in the next ten minutes. Get ready and bring the team from Eden Prime with you” Captain Anderson ordered her before he turned and left the room then headed over to the elevator to see the Spartan.

Who was down in the hanger bay. He had been there for the last fourteen hours now and hadn’t moved once, almost like a statue or a machine.

Or like this chapter.

Finally arriving at the hanger bay. Anderson walked out of the elevator and walked over to the Alliance soldiers who currently had their weapons pointed at the Spartan who was sitting on a metal crate. while looking at the floor not caring at the ten alliance soldiers with guns pointed at him.

Noble Six for the last fourteen hour since he had brought commander Shepard on board the SSV Normandy. Six had Dot hack into the network to get information about everything he could about this universe’s humanity.

Once again, that’s a great way to convince them he is on their side.

He learned that this universe’s humanity had found a Prothean data cache on Mars, which advanced their technology forward over two hundred years, giving then plans on how to use mass effect technology that allowed them to build space worthy ships and how to build weapons that used mass effect technology.

Mass-effect technology had allowed the construction of weapons that used mass-effect technology? WHO WOULD HAVE IMAGINED SUCH A TECHNOLOGICAL LEAP TAKING PLACE?

The N7 program of this universe was like the ODST of his universe. Both offered places for humanity’s best making them the best of the best, accept the Spartans of course.

Of course. Because nobody gets to be better than the goddamn Spartans.”

Humanity hadn’t been at war as long as his humanity.

They did have a similar first contact with the Turain race, who attack humanity when they activated a mass relay.

I know this is coming from me here, but isn’t that a little unfair to the turians? The Covenant spent thirty years trying to exterminate every last human, after all.

Something that was needed to move around to get places faster unlike how his humanity used slip space technology which was quicker to get around.

Pretty sure Mass Relays are faster than Slipspace, and also much safer.

Six had Dot research commander Jane Shepard to see what she could find out about her.

Because that’s not creepy at all.”

Dot had found out a bit about the red headed commander. She was the daughter of captain Hannah Shepard and Commander Malcolm Shepard.

In 2176 CE had almost single handily held back a Batarain Slaver run on the colony of Elysium until the alliance arrived, which had earned her the name the lioness of Elysuim.

The Lioness, huh?

That’s somehow even worse than Hyper-Lethal Vector.”

And it was sexist and weird when Falloutnv did it, and it’s just as sexist and weird now.

She also had been a sole survivor of her team.

When they were killed when they discovered a thresher maw nest on Akuze. Apparently she had survived for days until she was found.

The paragraphing makes that seem like two completely separate events that happened at completely different times. Then again, maybe it’s just the punctuation.

Since the Spartan-III had set foot on the ship. He had been ordered to hand over his guns and amour by the soldiers of the alliance. The Spartan however refused like any Spartan would. He was in unknown territory and the only person he trusted was Dot.

So there would be no chance in hell that he would hand over his new weapons and amour…even if the captain was technically his superior officer as B312 was only a lieutenant, however no one besides Six and Dot were UNSC.

Because every Marine knows, the defining feature of Spartans is that they’re complete selfish dicks.

Oh. Wait.

For the time being the two were on their own but they had enough equipment to last for a while.

Which is all the more reason not to play Scrooge McDuck with your technology and hand some of it over for study or to arm the rest of Shepard’s squad!

However, Six’s refusal angered most of the soldiers on board the Normandy as captain Anderson was a living legend in the alliance for his action in the first contact war. Telling him no and on his ship no less was just as bad as spitting in his face as far as they were concerned.

One soldier however tried to take the weapon by force. That soldier ended up with a broken arm when six crushed it easily making the other soldiers furious that the Spartan had injured on of their own. The Alliance soldiers went to put him down only for captain Anderson who prevented them from attacking him.

Huh. Guess I skipped out on that one lecture during OC school where they taught us that when some steroid-infused nutcase you picked up off a random planet just seriously injured one of your men, the proper response is to sit around and do nothing.”

Not that the lieutenant really cared. He had made a career at doing the impossible and caused entire battalions to disappear on his own which had earned him the name The Black Death due to his amour being black so that was the last thing they ever saw.

“…

Ok, and that’s even lamer than ‘the lioness of Elysium’.”

More to the point, why would the Covenant be naming him after a plague in medieval Europe on Earth? Or was he killing entire battalions of humans somewhere?

So…are you just going to go with them, when they take you to Alliance command?” Dot asked her partner as she was worried what they would do to him, once they found out about the augmentations that Six had. She doubted that humans here were augmented or that they even had super soldiers at all.

Sigh……..

Once again, Mass Effect augmentations are in all likelihood superior to those available to the UNSC- in fact, they likely have much less of a visible effect precisely because they are more precise and have fewer side effects.

“We’ll see.” Six told his A.I as she appeared on his visor screen with a raised eyebrow, clearing wanting him to explain more.” I’ll see what they want with me.”

You know they won’t let you just leave freely around the galaxy.Your an unknown and they’ll want to know everything about you.”

Once they find out you have a highly advanced A.I, they’ll take me apart to see how I tick or destroy me to stop me becoming like the geth.” Dot said quietly towards the end. For the first time in her life, she felt fear. Could an A.I being destroyed even count as dying? Or would it just be classed as a bit of technology malfunction?

That’s an interesting question, and one this ‘fic most definitely has neither the technical chops nor the understanding of basic moral decency to properly address.

“They won’t touch you.” The lieutenant told her sternly making her smile. Rather simple words to most but she knew that he meant ever word of it.

“Thank you, Logan.” Dot thanked the Spartan who still found it hard to here his real name. He had really only been using it for the last few weeks as Noble Team when they weren’t in battle called him that.

Except for the fact that in the games Noble Team never calls the character anything but “Six”.

Six reminisces about his forgettable Spartan buddies Kat and Jorge for a while, then that Anderson guy shows up and tries interrogating him. As usual, Logan won’t cooperate and they talk in circles for a while because Anderson ‘isn’t UNSC personnel’. I got news for you, buddy- the UNSC pretty much stopped existing as soon as you walked through that portal, so you can either talk to the next best thing or spend the rest of your life as a fucking super-augmented space hermit.”

Actually, can we just go straight to the second option?

And then… this happens.”

One of the soldiers finally had enough of the Spartan and how he was talking to their captain in such disrespect and moved closers before pointing the gun in his face…well visor but same thing really.

“I’ve had enough of you talking to captain Anderson In such disrespect!

Show and Tell Counter: 12

While you are on this ship you will speak to him as your superior, freak!” The soldier snarled at the Spartan. Six like most Spartans were used to being called section three freaks so he wasn’t really bothered by the insult.

“No hard feelings.” Six said to the soldier in front of him leaving the others confused but before they could react. Six smacked the gun out of his face knocking it across the room before jumping to his feet and clotheslined the soldier, nearly breaking his neck in the process.

Which is totally what us normal people do when we aren’t bothered by an insult.”

Also, once again, Logan’s attempts at getting the Alliance to stop treating him like a prisoner provide all the justification they need to keep him imprisoned.

Six then gave an upper cut to the closest soldier near him, knocking him out while in the process grabbing as it was still in the air.

Wait, grabbing what? The first soldier’s neck?”

I think the gun he knocked out of the guy’s hands up above. Although why he would need it since he’s already armed with a small colony’s worth of Forerunner bullshit is anybody’s guess.

The lieutenant then shot the others in the kneecaps, making sure not to kill them as they were only following orders.

I’m sure they’ll keep that fact in mind as they go through the next few excruciating weeks of physical fucking therapy.”

Six then threw the assault rifle at the captains stomach making him hurl over and knocking the wind out of him from the unexpected attack.

I can totally sympathize. This fight scene makes me want to hurl as well.

The Spartan then sprinted over to the winded Anderson and grabbing him by the front of his uniform smashed him into the wall making the captain back feel like he had just been crushed by a Krogan.

Anderson couldn’t believe it. One man had managed to take down everybody in the room in mere moments.

Wait, weren’t there supposed to be ten soldiers plus Anderson? Just how many did he shoot in the knees?”

Almost like they were nothing to him but children playing war.

No, the child playing war here is definitely the author.”

If a single Spartan was as well trained as him then what the would an army of them be like? He didn’t want to find out if he was honest.

He hit the freak button!” Dot said with a smirk.”He shouldn’t of done that!

“I apologise captain. This is nothing personal” Six told Anderson as his pushed his forearms against his throat.

This seems pretty damn personal to me.”

“If you do this, you’ll be marked as an enemy of the Alliance.

And not a moment too soon.

Stand down son” Anderson wheezed out as he tried to reason with the Spartan.

“I must refuse, captain.” Six told him.”I understand you have orders…so I’m sorry about this.” Six said to him before he knocked him out before putting him on the floor gently. He was after all just following orders like any soldier would. So Six did not hate the man for that.

No, he didn’t hate the Alliance, he just brutally assaulted eleven of its members for no goddamn reason.”

“Let’s go, Six.” Dot said to her partner as he summoned a pistol and put it on his hip and summoned an assault rifle that he carried in his arms. Six then walked over to the elevator with Dot who had hacked into the Normandy’s systems hours ago was going through them, while Six activated his active camo.

Ok, it’s time to address Dot being able to hack through the Normandy‘s systems like they were the United States government. Halo’s AI technology is pretty sophisticated and pretty widely used, while Mass Effect’s is heavily restricted, but… when we do see it, we have fully intelligent AIs built damn near from scratch that can fit into common terminal computers and mobile geth armatures, as opposed to Halo’s smart AIs which require the imaging of an organic brain to even create, a mainframe to rival ENIAC or an organic host to hitch a ride in, and are only active for seven years. Therefore, I can actually conclude that Mass Effect’s computer and information technology is in fact a lot more sophisticated than the UNSC’s, and a military ship like the Normandy would probably have both general-use security and specific counter-AI software that a suit-bound, formerly dumb AI like Dot would not be able to easily get around.

Although, of course, Dot’s on Forerunner steroids here, so I suppose anything fucking goes.

Well I’ve downloaded the ships layout for you.Once we get out of the elevator, we’ll need to head up the stairs then from there, just go straight. Once you find the cockpit turn left where exit for the ship will be

… Is he really going to try to walk off the Normandy while it’s flying through deep space?”

Good luck reaching a populated system with that dinky thruster pack…

Dot told her partner getting a nod from him as the elevator finally reach the next floor.

He always found it ironic that no matter how far humanity improved their technology. The elevators were still as slow as they were in the early 21st century.

Har dee har fucking har, a slow elevators joke.

Also, why the hell would Six be comparing the elevators on the Normandy to ones from the early 21st century?”

I think it is the fundamental delusion of every millennial that the time they currently inhabit will actually turn out to have been important.

Shepard, the ground team and Nihlus were currently waiting for the captain by the cockpit, where he was supposed to be waiting for them, after he went to see the Spartan.

Oh, hey, Nihlus Kryik still exists! What a glorious day!

Now I bet we’ll get to sit back and watch as he is mentioned in numerous scenes while doing absolutely nothing to advance the actual plot!

Who would be taken away for questioning by the alliance. Jane however had a bad feeling in her stomach and as her mother had always told her to go with her gut.

“Where’s your captain?” Nihlus asked Jane, snapping her from her thoughts before she looked at the Turain spectre with a small frown on her face.

“I’m not sure. I’ll go check” Jane told told the spectre as she walked away from the others to head down to the hanger.

“Wait Shepard!” Kaidan announced making her look at him.” I’ll come with you. Just encase the Spartan try’s anything.” He told her as he walked next to her.

Actually, ‘encasing’ the Spartan seems like the best idea anybody’s had so far.”

Preferably in concrete. Or maybe lead.

He didn’t like the feeling of her going down there on her own.

That’s because everyone in this story is a chauvinistic prick.

Especially the Spartan who could kill them all easily if his performance on Eden Prime was anything thing to go by.

Jane nodded before they both headed down and headed down the stairs, unaware they had walked passed the cloaked Spartan-III.

Six watched the two Alliance soldiers walk passed him then used the door that they came through as it would be too suspicious if a door opened on it’s own.

Then how the hell did he get this far to begin with?!

Six walked down the ship where he saw the Turain and human soldier from the planet before he silently walked passed them without making a sound.

BLARING ALARM BLARES

Oh, goodie.

You got anything chambered in Forerunner Bullshit? I wanna make this quick.”

“Dot. Cut power.” Six told his partner.

Give me a moment, Six.” Dot told him and a few moments later, all the lights went off on the ship making the crew panic.

Ok.

That does it.

Once for beating the crew up on Eden Prime, once for beating them up just now, once for breaking that one Marine’s arm, once for hacking into the Normandy‘s systems after you already had a good handle on what was going on, and once for this flagrant safety violation:

There, done. Opening the hatch for you now Six. Lets go” Dot told him with the Spartan-III nodding before he left the Normandy. Ashley turned around when she saw the door open up but assumed it was just a glitch in the ships electronics so she ignored it.

*The Admiral is struck in the back of the head by a flying bloodstained Sonic plushie.*

HEY! You got your creepypasta cliches in my stufic!

“You got your Gary Stu in my creepypasta!”

Once Shepard and Kaidan got into the hanger bay. They saw the ten guards that were meant to be guarding the Spartan knocked out cold, while Captain Anderson was knocked out against the wall. The Spartan was no where to be seen.

Jane seeing her father figure knocked out against the wall made her blood boil and ran towards Anderson.

Her blood ran towards Anderson?”

Was it hyper-realistic?

“Anderson!, Anderson!.”Jane shouted at him to wake him with no success.”David get your ass up!” She shouted again as she slapped his face, waking the Captain up finally.

“Jane?”Anderson asked before his eyes widened when he realised he had been knocked out by the Spartan. He climbed to his feet and looked around for the Spartan only to find he was gone making him sigh.

“What happened here, Captain?” Jane asked him as she looked at her fellow Alliance on the ground making her narrow her eyes at what the Spartan.

You know what, that’s actually a pretty good reaction to the ‘fic in general so far:

What.
The.
Spartan.

“Private Maxwell. I believe he pissed him off calling him a freak…plus the gun in his face probably didn’t help things. It was over so quick I didn’t even have a chance to react. I would hate to fight an army of Spartans.”

“Well he did apologise for his actions before knocking me out. So I can be a little grateful for that.” Anderson mused to himself.

Yeah, he did apologize after maiming two of your men and probably killing the other eight since they’ve been lying around for God knows how long with no medical attention after being shot in the legs with those super-powerful gravity guns… but it’s the thought that counts, right?”

“He attacked you, David!” Jane said clearly angered at what the Spartan did to her father figure.

Yes, we know what Anderson’s relationship to Shepard is. No need to mention it every other paragraph.

“You were simply following orders and he nearly kills everybody in the room. He’s clearly a nut case.”

“Somebody promote this woman already! She’s the only one in this whole goddamn story who makes any fucking sense!”

“Calm down, Shepard. What’s done is done.”

“Not yet it’s not. Once I find him and going to rip that helmet off and punch him In the damn jaw…stupid giant.” Jane told him as she crossed arms over her chest.

“…

I think I’m in love.”

“Are you sure your not letting your pride do the talking for you?” Anderson asked.”So he took you down on Eden Prime. I’m an N7 as well, Commander and he took he down easily. He clearly is better trained is all.” The captain told her.

This is not David Anderson. This is a farce.

“Enough about that. We need to find him and bring him back before the council think that we’ve got a super soldier at our disposal “Kaidan said to Jane with her nodding but mostly she wanted to hit him for hurting her father figure.

OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WE GET IT ALREADY!

The group went to go to the elevator only for all the power to go off.

“What’s going on!” Kaidan shouted as he flared his biotics making the room gain a blue tint to it.

There has got to be an easier way for a soldier in full combat gear to light up a goddamn room.”

“You have a problem using an indoor voice voice, Alenko.” Jane deadpaned at him.”I think it’s obliviously the Spartan.”Jane said as she activated her omni-tool to try to get the elevator working again.

“Damn it!”Jane cursed to herself.”Whatever the Spartan did has completely locked me out of the system. Didn’t take him as an engineer.”

Me neither. Engineering typically requires you to make sense.

“Then there is nothing we can do then wait for Hackett to arrive. I’ll just have to explain what occurred here.” Anderson told the two as Jane punched the wall in frustration.

“…

You have tools. And comms. And heavy ordinance that if all else fails could blow a fucking hole in the ceiling. Spartan might have slowed you down, but you’re not dead yet. If the UNSC gave up this quickly against the Covenant, Earth woulda’ been glassed a long time ago.”

As Jane currently wanted to much the Spartan for locking them out of the Normandy. Noble Six had left the Normandy before headed for the elevator and headed down to find out wherever he was.

Wait, what? What does that even mean?

“Restore the power.” Six told Dot.

Right away, Logan.You know they’ll be after you now right?” Dot said to him though the comms.

“I know.” Six replied back to her as he waited until they reached the bottom.”It doesn’t matter though.”

The bottom of what? Space?”

It took me to about this point to realize that all of this was supposed to have happened with the Normandy already docked at the Citadel, and what Logan is currently descending is the docking tower. Since, you know, having Nihlus say “Anderson was supposed to be here for docking. We’ve landed, so where is he?” during the conversation on the bridge would have been so fucking hard.

It doesn’t?

“No. as long as we stick together. We’ll be fine.”

Awww, Six. If you keep this up I’m going to become a sobbing wreck.

Well, she’ll be in good company.

Dot mock wept to him making him sigh. He wondered if every A.I was like this or if he was just being made to suffer for something.

I’m beginning to wonder that myself.”

“Don’t look to far into it.”Six told her with a small amused smile before they finally reached the bottom with the doors opening. The two members of the UNSC finally saw the other no-humans of the new universe walking around and interacting with humans, which was slightly bitter to the Spartan to swallow but he would just have to learn adapt.

And cut! Well here’s the next updated chapter of The Lone Wolf of the Normandy. I hope you all like

We do not.

and please let me know if there are any spelling mistakes or grammar mistakes as I can’t improve myself unless I know. Just please no flames.

I am really well past the point of flames.

As I said last chapter. Not really much to say.

Then why do you keep talking?”

    “I, uhh, I think I’m gonna just sit this one out.”

    DuFresne: Actually, if you could send help, that would be wonderful.

    *DuFresne kills two of Captain Obvious’s crew by firing at them with his Plasma Pistol, which kills two of Captain Obvious’s crew*

    (Please stop fucking up my transcripts, DuFresne. They looked all neat until your Redundancy Aura came along. -Monitor)

  2. agigabyte says:

    He had been there for the last fourteen hours now and hadn’t moved once, almost like a statue or a machine.

    Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t most machines involve moving parts?

    • AdmiralSakai says:

      Well, typically those parts are confined to the interior of the device, so there’s little or no outward motion. Those machines that do have external moving parts could generally be further subdivided into vehicles and robots (we actually had a fun lecture in Robotics II one day where we applied robotics design theory to things like power tools and kitchen appliances, treating them as ‘degenerate robots’).

  3. agigabyte says:

    More to the point, why would the Covenant be naming him after a plague in medieval Europe on Earth? Or was he killing entire battalions of humans somewhere?

    I think that was meant to be a reference to Six making entire militia groups disappear. Of course, it was phrased as well as anything else in the fic, so it’s not entirely certain.

  4. agigabyte says:

    Once again, Mass Effect augmentations are in all likelihood superior to those available to the UNSC- in fact, they likely have much less of a visible effect precisely because they are more precise and have fewer side effects.

    Well, they’re certainly technologically superior, but thanks to quantity and brute force, it seems that the Spartans do have superior physical abilities in most areas when compared to Alliance Marines.

    • AdmiralSakai says:

      But at the same time, Spartans are a lot more expensive and only a small subset of the population is suitable for augmentation to begin with.

      • agigabyte says:

        Oh, yeah. Logistically, the Alliance has the advantage, there, and Biotics counteract the Spartans, too. Just pointing out that Spartans do have superior augmentations.

  5. agigabyte says:

    we have fully intelligent AIs built damn near from scratch that can fit into common terminal computers

    Not sure what you mean, here. The VIs are rather limited, and EDI needed a full quantum blue-box.

    Now, as you mentioned, the Geth do exist, and they’re certainly more advanced than what the UNSC has to offer.

  6. agigabyte says:

    ”I think it’s obliviously the Spartan.”

    I’m reasonably certain he knows exactly what he’s doing.

  7. BatJamags says:

    Dr. Chakwas’s medical scrubs being referred to as “a standard black alliance robes”

    Standard? Well, every scientist and doctor in the galaxy seems to wear the exact same style of labcoat, and that includes Alliance ones, but it’s not like everyone who works for the Alliance wears that.

    Black? Not very descriptive, but alright.

    Robes? … No.

  8. BatJamags says:

    Nobody no matter how well trained could take out ten trained alliance soldiers, before they managed to kill him.

    I give the story maybe five paragraphs before Stuble Six takes out ten trained alliance soldiers, before they manage to kill him. Why? Probably just to show off.

    • BatJamags says:

      Anderson couldn’t believe it. One man had managed to take down everybody in the room in mere moments.

      Alright, so it took longer than five paragraphs. But seriously. This is bullshit.

  9. BatJamags says:

    “We did, Commander. He will be shipped home to be where he belongs…with his family.” Anderson told Jane getting a small nod from her.

    Jenkins is from Eden Prime. You didn’t have to “ship” him anywhere.

  10. BatJamags says:

    ” I do. We work with each other around twenty years ago and even back then, he was nasty and cruel

    Ooh, nasty. Word choice matters, author. If you used the past tense properly and said “vicious” instead of “nasty,” I could take this sentence seriously.

  11. BatJamags says:

    “A lot of the other races think the same as Saren but they don’t act on it. They all think that were moving to fast and pushing anybody got of our way, but Saren will act on it” Anderson told her but Jane shook her head.

    Funny thing about this conversation: it’s stuff Captain Anderson actually says in the game. I don’t think it’s word-for-word, but that’s sloppy regurgitation, not original thought.

  12. BatJamags says:

    “Don’t worry sir. We’ll bring him down” Jane Garfield said with conviction at getting the turian that had caused hundreds of humans to die on Eden Prime.

    And meanwhile Saren’s all like

  13. BatJamags says:

    the lioness of Elysuim

    Well, that’s pretentious.

  14. BatJamags says:

    She also had been a sole survivor of her team.

    When they were killed when they discovered a thresher maw nest on Akuze. Apparently she had survived for days until she was found.

    Oh for the love fuck, we’re doing the all-three-origins thing again?

  15. GhostCat says:

    This is completely off-topic, but I was looking at the list of our top search terms and they are as follows;

    library of the damned,

    naked buff santa claus,

    harry adopted by xenomorph fanfiction,

    what in the blue hell is fall of equestrian

    I don’t know why this makes me giggle so much, but it does.

  16. BatJamags says:

    “Also, why the hell would Six be comparing the elevators on the Normandy to ones from the early 21st century?”

    Especially since the elevators from the early 21st century are not uniquely faster than the ones from the early 20th century.

  17. BatJamags says:

    “Actually, ‘encasing’ the Spartan seems like the best idea anybody’s had so far.”

    Preferably in concrete. Or maybe lead.

    Or something like this:

    Yeah, let’s see you fight your way out of getting made into a Noble Sixcicle.

  18. BatJamags says:

    This is not David Anderson. This is a farce.

    No, don’t you remember in Mass Effect 3 when he was all like “Oh, these Reapers are clearly better equipped is all. I guess we better just let them have Earth.”

  19. BatJamags says:

    Since, you know, having Nihlus say “Anderson was supposed to be here for docking.

    *Por-*

    *Shoots the intercom speakers*

    That’s quite enough of that.

    • GhostCat says:

      :Swenia, Syl, and Glasses push a cart loaded with electronic equipment and speakers the size of refrigerators through the Library, blasting porno music loud enough to stun small animals:

      YES, THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER!

      • SC says:

        Glasses: WE WILL NOT BE DENIED!

      • BatJamags says:

        Alright, let’s deal with this the smart way.

        You need to stop. You need to stop. You need to stop. You need to stop. You need to stop. You need to stop. You need to stop. You need to stop.

        *Blaring alarms blare blaringly while blaring a blaringly blaring blare*

        You don’t need to stop.

        *Alarms blare silently*

        You also do need to stop.

        *Silents blare alarmingly*

        It is required of you that you cease your present activities forthwith.

        *Klaxons wail*

        You seem to need to stop.

        *Alarms seem to blare*

        There we go. That’s the DRD, the DCA, the DRD, the DCB the DRD, TPS, the DRD, Nick Wishywashy and the Agents of S.E.E.M.I.N.G.L.Y., and also the DRD all invading at once. If nothing else, the firefight might drown out the noise.

        *Alarms blare even more*

        Whoops.

        • agigabyte says:

          *DuFresne dodges what seems to be a plasma bolt, dodging it*

          DuFresne: Bats, I’m going after you, next! You know, just once this massive battle is over.

      • AdmiralSakai says:

        … I can’t believe you left out the Department of the Department of Recursion.

      • BatJamags says:

        You raise a compelling point.

        Uh…

        You need to stop stopping stopping?

        *Alarms blare blares*

        There we go. I think.

      • SC says:

        Glasses: I can still hear the porn music, you haven’t won shit!

  20. DasMoaBorgir says:

    Aw yes. the Spartan

  21. DasMoaBorgir says:

    This sounds like the sort of security apparatus an eight-year-old child would come up with-

    There is probably a much safer solution here

  22. DasMoaBorgir says:

    Dot’s on Forerunner steroids

    Just steroids?


    Lone Grim Death Blood Wolf of The Normandy – Chapter 1:

    .. “But like the idiot I am I made you run through an unknown portal.” Dot berated herself
    … “Oh you naughty boy, Saren”
    … “D’awwwww”

  23. DasMoaBorgir says:

    Humanity hadn’t been at war as long as his humanity.

    Yes, his humanity, the little black sprite which had only turned blacker and dimmer with every inch of blood he had spilled, his own humanity, eternally fighting for its existence and right to be recognized from within that powered titanium cage :'(

  24. DasCheesenBorgir says:

    Somebody promote this woman already!… I think I’m in love.

    Cuz that turned out really well for the last woman Fisher expressed similar sentiments about :P

  25. DasCheesenBorgir says:

    “No, he didn’t hate the Alliance, he just brutally assaulted eleven of its members for no goddamn reason.”

    So if Chief was the vampire in LOAS, does that make Six a Werewolf here?

  26. ThroughTheCheeseNBorgir says:

    I am really well past the point of flames.

    Now you fly ever free

  27. TacoMagic says:

    This sounds like the sort of security apparatus an eight-year-old child would come up with- “And then these ten pillars are gonna have guys on them as soon as I can find enough minifigs, and those guys’ll be there so that if he ever climbs out of the pit he might be able to knock down one but then the other nine would just shoot him with crossbows and then these rubber bands are wires that’ll come down from the ceiling and shock him and then those cages over there will have lions in them that are trained to avoid the wires and…”

    *Quickly throws a blanket over his Legos*

    Yeah. Ha ha. How ridiculously juvenile.

  28. Swenia says:

    earned her the name the lioness of Elysuim.

    I’m feeling more than a little insulted right now.

  29. Swenia says:

    “You know they won’t let you just leave freely around the galaxy.”

    And, oddly enough, neither would the UNSC, Lieutenant.

  30. The Crowbar says:

    His weapons look like guns compared to the weaponry of the galaxy.”

    I know that I’ve been perpetually drowning inside a swamphole the past year, but has language really changed that much?

    I hope not, because whatever this sentence is, it makes me want to jump back into that hole and wait another hundred years.
