Jane Shepard is a bounty hunter with a past she’d prefer to put behind her. A chance encounter with C-sec officer Garrus Vakarian presents her with an opportunity too good to pass up.

New chapter’s up! Also, as I say at the end of the chapter, I’ve made a playlist for this fic (one song to represent each chapter) which can be accessed HERE
I…anticipate several more Fiona Apple songs I already have in mind for future chapters…
I’m bored so I’m gonna see how many mass effect party member names I can remember. Been a while since I played.
Tali’Zorah vas Neema nar Rayya (don’t talk to me about ‘vas Normandy’ I hate it)

Jacob .. something
Bonus round - crew that is Not squad
Jeff “Joker” Moreau
Dr Karin Chakwas
Pressly, don’t remember his first name but he died
And… the engineers… There was.. gabriel? No… Gab-… Gabriella Daniels. And, I forget the others..
Mm… Then, I haven’t played Andromeda yet so all I know is Vetra Nyx. Oh and Peebee.. But that’s probably a nickname, right?
Sorry Jacob. I have to look it up now… Ah, Taylor, okay. Yeah ‘Jacob Taylor’ doesn’t really stand out.
The engineers I remember but forgot the names of were… Kenneth Donnelly and Greg Adams. Damn, I should have at least remembered ‘Donnelly’. Oh well.
Did I miss anyone from the squads of 1-3? Obviously I missed nearly everyone from Andromeda having not played it, and almost every non-squad crewmember from the entire series, but I /think/ I got the 1-3 squad entirely. Except for Jacob’s last name. And, worth mentioning that jack’s birth name was Jennifer, according to Liara in a line you may hear in 3. Her real last name is still a mystery as while Liara did say she Could find out, she never did as Jack never asked, politely or otherwise.

Having recently played through the Mass Effect series, I can honestly say that nothing about it stood out to me as a “pop culture phenomena”, except for the N7 armor and Quarians. First time I met Tali'Zorah in ME1, my honest reaction was “holy shit, so THAT’S what they’re like”. Needless to say, Tali was my romance in ME2. :P
