I assume the building is well-calibrated.

Naturally, the station is very well calibrated. The workers are always calibrating, and never talk to anyone because of it.

Update: Part 1 of the story is complete, 7 chapters total, but I wouldn't mind some editing from another party. If you're interested, or if you just want a sneak peak, I am willing to get you however much you want of it.

If you are interested in helping with the editing, please be honest; i promise nothing you say can hurt my feelings.

Also, don't be worried that I say 'Part 1', it will be a pretty long story with many, many parts to it.
I will likely have to post this story on BSN, as it is the only place I have access to right now. I will put up the link to it when I feel it is good enough to be read by the internet jackals :P

Actually.....I have to agree. More Humans are needed. In my opinion.

Yeah. Its not that I am a supremacist its that seeing the same formula of Alien Centric Fanfiction gets Drab, I Do not mind Aliens, but having Human Characters mixed into the main character lot would be more interesting.


Its hard to explain, am too tired to go into what I mean in detail, but will do so at next chance when asked. Its My opinion anyways.

@CB Also I won't mind checking out your Fanfic and critiquing it . On my own Time of course.

Yeah, but there are almost none that has a human as protagonist otherwise. You're right, though - I guess about 80% of all fanfics are about Shepard.

Thats redundant. Original Fanfics, with original characters are much different. Ones that don't have Shepard rarely have humans.


But some that have had Humans were really good. Like CC's oneshot FanFic. You know the one that made everyone cry?

Well. It's probably because the game is already from a human's perspective. And aliens are more interesting for a writer.

If only I could remember the name, Someone will probably link you. Though you may have read it before, though not sure if you where here for that time period.

Which one? I'm pretty sure 90% of his stories have had that effect

And Rage's "Deception" had a human, Toby Heiko, as the main protagonist.
And that CC's oneshot still had Shepard in it :P, if you are refering to "Drifting" as I presume you are.

But I have no problems with an alien as a main protagonist. It's still rare enough in general.

Ho-kay. I must say that so far I approve. This seems like it will be interesting.
