    Summary

    It is the year 2183, and humanity has been under the thumb of the Hierarchy for twenty-six years. Client race status has not sat well with many humans, despite the good-faith attempts at inspiring amicable relations between the two species. When a tragedy on Eden Prime sparks a hunt for rogue Spectre Saren Arterius, it's up to the Normandy's human-turian crew—the first of its kind—to track him down. The humans and turians will learn more about each other and themselves as they unite against the greatest threat the galaxy has ever faced.

    And some, like the turian Spectre in training and the human cabal squad leader, may be lucky enough to find love along the way.

    Summary

    The first contact war was followed by years of hot and cold warfare between humans and turians. Several attempts by the council to force a permanent truce has failed. Now both the Hierarchy and the Alliance has agreed to an armistice which has lasted for 6 years. Gagarin Station (Jump Zero)has been established as a place of reconciliation, where turian recruits and human biotics train side by side as supposed allies. However, old grudges die hard and for some of the students it's hard to let go of the past.

    Will friendship outlast the end of childhood? When team Four is spread across space, divided by duty, will something remain of Jump Zero’s lessons, or will the new emerging enemy strain every relationship past its breaking point?

    Summary

    Valis doesn't want to like Desolas. He's arrogant, he's aggressive, he's a pain in her ass. But there's something about him hiding just out of sight, something she only sees in the darkest parts of the night when it's only the two of them, that she can't help but want a closer look at. And one night, that's exactly what she gets.

    Summary

    So! A year has passed and now it's October again and Oc-tober started this whole thing for me so here I am again.
    The prompt list can be found here: https://oc-growth-and-development.tumblr.com/post/662411584438730752/tis-the-season-for-october-2021-as-always-these#notes

    I'll be dipping back into my Mercenary!AU because that's the verse I'm writing with my rp partner. That said, last year I took the AU as far as I could on my own, now that the RP buddy is back, we've made some changes. I'm not retconning anything as of this moment, just take the timelines of the previous installments worth a grain of salt.
    All that said, I cannot promise I will upload every single day but I won't miss prompts. I might combine a few, we'll see.

    Summary

    The First Contact War didn't have to happen. That was the consensus of the Citadel Council. The Alliance agreed, for the most part. This is the story of those who were there. It's their account of the events surrounding that conflict and beyond.

    Comments keep this going. Tell us what you think...

    Summary

    The OC-tober single word writing prompts were so much fun I decided to do one for November. Taking place in my Mercenary!AU and following Mav as well as a few other characters again this time. That is to say I'm planning not to have every chapter from his POV again but we'll see.

    Summary

    Instead of Inktober this year I'm doing OC-tober. Same format, a different single word prompt each day. My plan currently is to follow my OC Mav and set it in my Mercenary!AU since that's the verse I've got going now. I'll add any additional character or story tags as I need to add them.
