Hello hello all you patrons! Welcome back to The Lone Wolf Of The Normandy!

Last time Six and Co. cleared out the merc base on Xawin, where Six brutally murderated a krogan battlemaster for no real reason and then whined about the fact that an Alliance Navy officer had been somewhat less brutally murderated beforehand. Then back aboard the Normandy he assaulted a few more hapless crewmen and got out of any punishment by waxing whiny about how ‘orrible his life had been up until that point. Oh, and the good news is that Jorge has managed to be brought up to speed and integrated into Citadel Space without causing anybody any grievous bodily harm, but the bad news is the people he’s not causing any grievous bodily harm to are Blaze Shepard and his special snowflake brigade.

Hello hello, all you patrons, and welcome back once again to The Lone Wolf of the Normandy.

Last time not a whole lot happened to said Lone Wolf on the Normandy, but we did get to see Jorge the Spartan land a Covenant Corvette all by himself as well as being introduced to easily the stupidest PMC outfit in the history of human spaceflight in the form of Blaze Shepard and his idiot friends Ravager and Phantom.

Yes, really.”

Chapter Ten is called ‘Xawin’, and surprisingly enough opens with a regurgitated MAKO drop and exploration of said planet. This includes several paragraphs dedicated to finding the Chatti Outpost Insignia on the wreckage of a turian frigate, and yes the narrative does indeed use that exact phrasing complete with capitalization.

Hello hello all you Patrons, and welcome back to The Lone Wolf of the Normandy.

Last time after wandering around doing basically nothing for most of the chapter, Spartan took off his armor for an out-of-nowhere medical exam which revealed that- surprise, surprise!- he looks like a male model. After that everybody went back to the Citadel station and met up with that Jun guy, and yet another Spartan named Jorge got shit out of Slipspace ‘somewhere in the Terminus’. And that, really, was about it.”

Hello hello all you patrons!

Last time on The Lone Wolf of the Normandy a whole lotta stupid went down, as in between regurgitated canonical get-to-know-you conversations with the Normandy squad it was revealed that Jane Shepard has an enormous Gary Stu of a brother named “Blaze” who is off fighting batarians somewhere; that The Illusive Man is actually an Admiral in the UNSC Navy who got plotholed into the Mass Effect universe many years before Six did; that he’s got Miranda busy trying to recruit the Spartans into Cerberus for no real reason that I can tell; and that Jun is reacting to these attempts with displays of gratuitous bloodshed sufficient to make Logan-B312 proud. Oh yeah, and the ‘relationship’ between Logan and Shepard continues to chug along its well-oiled rails with the fell inevitability of a WWI troop-train destined for the trenches of Verdun.

1818: The Lone Wolf Of The Normandy — Chapter Seven Part Two

Hello hello all you Patrons, and welcome back to the slowly expanding pile of horrors that is The Lone Wolf of the Normandy.

Last time everyone had a big long chat with that asari scientist Liara that they picked up on Therum, during which time Spartan beat up some more Alliance soldiers, developed some sort of weird hate-on for the pilot, insulted everyone’s intelligence, threw out stupid conspiracy theories dressed up as some sort of tactical insight, and generally was an insubordinate prick to Shepard. Shepard for her part just took a shower, posed in her underwear for no real reason for the author, and was an insubordinate prick to the Council she is supposed to work for. We left just as she was going up to the cockpit to probably be an insubordinate prick to Joker or for Joker to be an insubordinate prick to her.

Oh, and Jun is still chilling on the Citadel and not being a massive dickwad to every single person he meets.”

1814: The Lone Wolf Of The Normandy — Chapter Seven Part One

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to the heaping helping of horrible that is The Lone Wolf of the Normandy.

Last time… umm, well, Therum happened, pretty much. Shepard’s ground team (plus Six) drove around and shot at a bunch of geth before rescuing Liara and dusting off. Aside from Six being a sexist prick to basically everyone and stealing their kills with his stupid lightning-firing omniblades, basically everything occurred as canon. We know this because we got a line-by-line narration of every driving segment and geth turret. Oh, and Six knows about the Reapers now because Dot ‘hacked a Prothean mainframe’ that was just conveniently sitting around undiscovered on Therum for the taking.

Oh yeah, and also Jun the other Spartan showed up in Shepard’s universe and managed to acclimate without seriously injuring anyone who was just trying to do their job. Last we saw he’d been given a cover identity and was sitting around on the Citadel waiting for something to happen.”

Chapter Seven is called “The SSV Normandy Part 2”, which still strikes me as a bit odd given that “The SSV Normandy Part 1” was three chapters back but whatever. Strap yourselves in, because it’s a long one this time.

Hello hello all you patrons, and welcome back to The Lone Wolf of the Normandy, Spartan Logan-B312’s personal crusade to piss off every single person in the Mass Effect universe one-at-a-time.

Last time… well, really not a whole lot even happened as Spartan dicked around on the Normandy en route to Therum. He pissed off Shepard, plotted to start a war between the UNSC and the Council and possibly also the Systems Alliance, gloated about how goddamn fucking overpowered his stupid Forerunner guns are, and settled in for the first part of a MAKO drop to their target alongside Garrus, Shepard, and Tali.”
