    Bookmarker's Notes

    A strong interpretation of Loki and a better one of Odin, with whose usual fanfic depictions as either the blindest sort of unknowing idiot or the cruellest kind of unfeeling manipulator I am truly bored. (A sentence which I tried to write without pedantically moving the preposition away from the end; but I was unable to tolerate even that minor sin). As various others among my bookmarks, this gets bonus points for feeling like it was written as a whole or at least with a good plan, instead of just churned out chapter by chapter. While heavy on angst, it only very occasionally - mostly towards the end - feels gratious, and proantagonist has another sense rare in fanfiction authors: when and how to *use* grief and events that cause it, rather than throwing it in because it is simply the thing to do. It's all the more welcome in a 'fic that bills itself as a Fix-It story. Good writing.

    Summary

    During the Reaper War, the fate of the galaxy depends on Commander Shepard. You can read a thousand stories about the Commander. This is not one of them.

    But what about the faceless grunts--the soldiers, mercenaries, and random hangers-on who do the unglamorous work of activating communication arrays, gathering intel, escorting recon drones, and eliminating key enemy personnel?

    These are their stories.

     

    (One of the friends with whom I play Mass Effect 3 Multiplayer started writing ficlets based on the multiplayer missions and game mechanics. I was thereby inspired to follow suit. The full set of writings can be found here. (link goes to readable google document.) )

    Bookmarker's Notes

    MP games are extraordinarily fertile ground for little 'fics, and this is handled just as I'd like. Written with aplomb and a sense of fun.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A neat little juggling of some different approaches to the game, helped by a focus on the strong theme of family that DA2 started out with but then tended to forget for long periods. Not necessarily the strongest ending, in my opinion, but a solid and worthwhile 'fic at least.

    Summary

    Written for this prompt on the kink meme:

    "Mage Freedom is secondary, Justice's top priority is protecting the virtue of his darling daughter Anders. And he takes this task very seriously indeed. Justice jumping on everyone with accusations of having impure thoughts about Anders, with Anders either oblivious or totally embarrassed. 100 internets for Justice being aggressively skeptical of Sebastian's vow of chastity, and/or "DON'T THINK I DON'T SEE HOW YOU LOOK AT HIM" to Fenris ("Mages must be watched" "A LIKELY STORY. I'VE GOT MY EYE ON YOU BOY"). Any protests should be met with "AND WHAT'S WRONG WITH ANDERS?" listing his accomplishments etc.
    Is Justice seeing things, or are his suspicions correct? I don't care, I just want lulz!"

    I can't breathe. Help.

    Poor Sebastian. Poor Anders. Poor everybody.
