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, dear Patrons, and welcome to another fic! This one isn’t technically listed as a crossover, but it does draw “inspiration” from other source materials besides the Dead Space canon. Let’s take a look at the summary, shall we?

(Inspired by a change I’d have made to the series cannon: instead of a religion, Unitology should’ve been numerology.) The crew and passengers of the Ivory Star interstellar cruise ship Scheherazade begin experiencing widespread mental collapse en-rout to destination Methuselah. One afflicted young man, however, develops a singular version of the symptoms that keeps him…together.

Most of that seems pretty innocuous, save for that parenthetical statement at the beginning. Changing the Unitology faith to something based on numerology instead of having it focus on the promise of Convergence would fundamentally alter a substantial portion of the Dead Space universe. There would have to be some substantial world-building done to pull it off.

Time to go to the fic!

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.

Welcome back to Unknown Origins, the fic that tries and tries but never succeeds. And…screw it, let’s just get through the prologue. There’s not a lot left to throw at me.

Oh, and uh. *reads notes* Dr. Mitchell is a worse doctor than I initially thought, it’s highly plausible this takes place in a post apocalyptic universe with all your favorite cartoon characters, and the AJB is still around saving the world.

Yay. Let’s move on.

For swearing, nudity, sex, blood, and violence. Hey, it’s Vegas, baby.

And drugs and alcohol. Thanks Cyber.

LAST TIME ON UNKNOWN ORIGINS (ORIGINS, ORIGINS, ORIGINS)

*Angie holds up sock puppets* “Wow I bet our Mary Sue is Porky Pig.” “Wow, Dr. Mitchell sure is a pedophile.” “Wow, we’re actually playing Monopoly!”

And that’s what you missed on Unknown Origins. Let’s continue!

Hello hello all you patrons, happy Independence Day for those of you who can be arsed to care, and welcome back to The Lone Wolf Of The Normandy. Last time, we had a wonderful cycle of people repeatedly asking Noble Stu what the fuck he is and getting unhelpful non-answers, a pervy scene where he saved Tali from her gunshot wound using techniques that really should have killed her, and the long-awaited reconciliation with the Systems Alliance where they agreed not to lock him away forever for his violent and just plain dickish actions so far and he agreed to perform such actions with slightly lower frequency onboard the Normandy. Oh, and there was plot regurgitation. Lots and lots of plot regurgitation.

Howdy, all! Welcome back to Unknown Origins. In case you forgot, last week we covered that someone doesn’t know what a final fuck you is, Angie doesn’t know the difference between Fallout and Vanilla Ice, and this fic covers such a wide variety of genres it’s shocking we haven’t crossed into the historical music category.

Without further ado, let’s continue on.

*record screech* Hold on a second.
