Multiverse Desperado: A JumpChain Fiction Mass Effect Epilogue


Mass Effect Epilogue

I've long since lost track of the time. The doctors were very careful in maintaining an inoffensive atmosphere of healing for me. No clocks. No technology. No connection to the outside world. Just a bed, an analog video monitor, a music player, and a relatively pleasant view of the outside. For a wing fashioned out of what remained of the Citadel, it was quite relaxing. Physical therapy came and went, bandages were redressed, bones were set and healed. Several geth platforms came to visit me, equipped with some snippets of information from SAM to help reform my mental state. It was all a lovely comforting little bubble after the nightmare we all survived.

Multiverse Desperado: A JumpChain Fiction Chapter 28


Chapter 28: Battle For The Milky Way

I finally knew the answer to a certain question. What would happen if I was trapped on an enemy spaceship, and I somehow got access to my Warehouse. A Warehouse full of powerful artillery and doomsday weapons courtesy of T'Som Manufacturing. And I somehow knew how to use every single deathdealer in there.

Multiverse Desperado: A JumpChain Fiction Chapter 27


Chapter 27: Reboot, Recover, Remember

Miss T'Som... can you hear me? Miss T'Som, please respond....

Someone is calling to me...someone familiar. In my head.... SAM?

Oh thank goodness, you haven't completely lost cognitive function. That is a relief. A minor relief in the grand scheme of things, but it's a start to a full recovery.

A full recovery? What do you mean? What's going on?

Multiverse Desperado A JumpChain Fiction Chapter 26


Chapter 26: The Reaper War Begins

“Feron what's the location of the Council!?” I exclaimed, slipping on my armor and priming my pistol.

“The Salarian dalatrass is on the Citadel with Councilor Udina. I tried reaching the asari leader but she's gone completely dark. Her last known location was Illium. The Turian Primarch is currently on Palaven leading the Turian Navy against the Reaper assault on their system.”

“How are the Hellfire Cannons holding up?” I asked, adjusting my SMG and double checking my pouch of thermal clips.

“They're taking care of most of the ground troops but the artillery bombardments are keeping the turians pinned.” Feron dashed past me, clipping a shotgun and an assault rifle to his person and joining me to my shuttle.

Where The Hell Have I Been?

Hey there patrons.

Don't worry, I haven't fallen off of the non-existent edge of the earth (damn Flat Earther idiots) and I am in fact quite alive.

The best way to describe this is that I've been much busier than normal. The site I'm on is pushing for more in-depth comprehensive material, which means more long-form articles, which means more research which means less time for me to faff about with off the cuff opinions and cute little fanfiction projects that I put WAY too much thought into.

But the good news is the JumpChain is still ongoing. For those who have been reading from the beginning, you should know I'm building up to the finale of Mass Effect.

But I have a bit of a rule for myself: Do not go over 30 chapters. Cuz at that point I might as well just rename all the proper names and pitch it as a legally dubious novel.

But since Mass Effect is such a large-spanning setting, I'm effectively making the final chapters jumbo-sized to make sure closure is felt and all the set pieces and heroic moments are out of my system with no regrets.

Also, My Thoughts are going to be much more sporadic despite many topical opportunities passing me by.

For example: Black Panther, Avengers 3, God of War, Detroit (and David Cage as a whole), and Warframe. All had windows of opportunity. All passed.

But as I said, I'm still here. I'm just throwing myself more into my work. Which means I probably should unwind a bit more.

Thanks for reading to the end, and do not stare directly at the bouncer on the way out, he has social anxiety.

Multiverse Desperado A JumpChain Fiction Chapter 25


Chapter 25: The Calm Before The Storm

Several months have passed since I took the role as Co-Shadow Broker. I wish I could be more exact, but after the first few weeks on the station on Hagalaz, I had completely lost relative sense of time. Even with multiple clocks, a strict work schedule and the work station emulating a proper day and night cycle, my entire time there felt one long session.

It was also the closest thing to safe in the entire Milky Way I could be while the Collectors were still out there looking for me. As well as God knows what else. Call it paranoid, I call it peak survival.
