Hello hello all you patrons! Welcome back to the dense, flabby interior of A Special Task, the ‘fic that goes nowhere and does nothing, and does it extremely slowly.

Previously, the human-Council negotiations ended with not a great deal actually being accomplished other than communications between the two powers being normalized and the salarian Councilor being upbraided over the Uplift fiasco. Then the humans built an absurdly large space station at Relay 314 to manage trade with the Council species, and then they and the turian forces assigned to guard the site- which included such revered figures as Septimus Oraka, Adrian Victus, Garrus Vakarian, and Nyreen Kandros all jumbled up together with no sense of why they would all be in the same time and same place- wandered around the station on leave, lost at some boring human video games, and… well, that was it.”

Chapter 7- Civil Strife

March 21st, 2159, Unknown System

The Batarian frigate jumped out of FTL, engines already going at full tilt as soon as it decelerated. The crew inside tense and afraid.

“Kranak, please tell me we lost them.” The captain said to his pilot.

“I think so, but we can never be sure until its too late. There were several hegemony ships after us when we jumped, and one of them may have gotten a lock.” The pilot, Kranak, replied.

Oh, hey! Looks like we’re going to do that ‘batarian separatists’ thing he talked about in the author’s notes. It was the only storyline mentioned that actually sounded vaguely interesting… which, considering how much nothing has been crammed into the last few installments, is alarmingly encouraging.

ONE DAY LATER

Queenie: *knocks on Hiraani’s bedroom door* Lady?

*grumbles something not understandable*

Queenie: *opens door* Hiraani, we’ve got to review the fic.

*grumbles again, covers head with sheets, face sinking into pillow*

Queenie: I know you’re hungover, but we’ve got to keep going.

*begrudgingly gets up* Fine. Last time…*Hiraani is at a blank* What happened last time?

Queenie: Doesn’t matter. Let’s read it.

Queenie: Hello, lovelies! Welcome back to Unknown Origins. Last time, Hiraani continued to be a Sally Stick-In-The-Mud…

I’ve never hated myself more than I do right now.

Queenie: …Unknown Origins continued to be a blight on both of our sanities…

FLASHBACK

*waves arms around, distressed. Swallows Toaster Strudel* Exactly! <i>Exactly!</i> In fact, come to think of it—Dr. Mitchell should have given her medication to begin with! He’s an incompetent doctor! Stupid stupid stupid!

Queenie: These past few riffs are the angriest I’ve ever seen you and it’s great.

END FLASHBACK

Queenie: And the Sue continued to be a Sue. Nothing much has changed.

Let’s continue on.

Queenie: Hello, dear ones! Welcome back to Unknown Origins.

Welcome back to Everything Sucks: Part Nine. *continues stuffing mouth with Toaster Strudels*

Queenie: Also, Angie decided to drop Coffin Rock to devote her time to watching us suffer.

Angie: *from the other room* That’s not what I said, and you know it. But thank you for trying.

Queenie: No problem. Anyhow, when we last left off, we met Sunny Smiles, Chet continued to be a pervert beyond belief, and Hiraani had a mental breakdown.

What do you mean, had?

Queenie: Oh, but before we go on. Happy almost Halloween!

We were so close.

Queenie: Hiraani, what are you dressed up as?

I am glad you asked. I dressed up as First Lady Nancy Reagan to honor—

Queenie: I dressed up as a queen. So.

Groundbreaking.

Queenie: Let’s continue on.

Helloooo, friends! My name is Hiraani, and Angie…. *awkwardly looks over to Angie, slamming her head against the wall*

Angie: It’s stupid! It’s so fucking stupid! This fic is terrible!

Angie needs a little break, so I’m going to be filling in for this chapter. Which…judging by the Prologue, will take me eleven years. That’s okay! Let’s dive into Unkno—

Queenie: *slams open the door with her foot* I AM HERE TO HELP.

That’s okay.

Queenie: I HAVE BEEN SENT BY THE ROYAL GUARD.

…Gumdrop?

Queenie: No, the royal guard.

Okay. So Gumdrop.

Queenie: Anyway, they informed me that inferior human left you alone to review this fic.

Angie? She’s not that bad. And it’s only for this chapter—

Queenie: The chapter that will take several thousand weeks to review in its entirety? Right. Let’s take a look at Unknown Origins.
