Fanfics that make you want to flee outrunning your own squea

Postby Cheb » Sun Aug 18, 2019 12:38 am

I didn't think such exist until I began reading one.

Synopsis: Three Russian self-inserts into the Mass Effect universe. One as a Tyranid, one as a Primal Zerg and one as a Xenomorph (already almost too scary to read) :shock: Tearing through Omega at first, they join forces thanks to the Tyranid telepathy, find themselves a largely uninhabited planet then begin making a joint Swarm combining the strong sides of their respective species. Zerg eating Krogan masters of war and Asari commandoes to incorporate their strengths into their genome, for example.

Then they begin saving the galaxy from the reapers by converting its denizen into a part of the Swarm.

I stopped reading in terror when Shepard met Subject Zero (Jack) transformed like Kerrigan was in the Star Craft canon -- after the Normandy had barely escaped Omega overrun by mutant fanatics who we are shown beating Aria and injecting her with a mind control parasite.

I could only guess it continues in the vein of "and then things got worse".

:lol:

Sounds like someone had some fun writing over the top taken to 11 and far beyond.
Does it exist in English somewhere?

One as a Tyranid, one as a Primal Zerg and one as a Xenomorph


I have absolutely no knowledge(or interest) in tyranids(as i utterly detest the 40k-verse), but just putting zerg and xeno's together is plenty nightmarish enough for most people. In the long term, there's little the zerg isn't capable of to at least some level. And since zerg were conceptually based on xenomorphs(and Protoss on the Yautja from the Predator movies), the latter don't really add THAT much to the mix. Zerglings and hydras together pretty much have it all. But zerg adding ANY powerful species to itself is always going to be nasty.

.

And it's just the other day that i read this:

Based on this premise: "But the idea came up to see how things would turn out if a version of humanity who had their own tech that was as incompatible as possible with eezo tech happened to arise."
If you know the Mass effect universe even slightly, it quickly becomes potentially hilarious so to speak. Looks like mpi is going to continue it as well, and i expect it to be MOST amusing once the humanity there runs into the snotty citadel races, because damn are those going to be in for one BIG surprise.


And a comment to that allowed me to find this:

Mass effect? Meet Tohou. Get humiliated a few times. Have fun now! :mrgreen:
This one's recently updated as well, so decent chance it may end up finished.

Alas, no :(

These are a bit superfluous since Tyranids are, basically, WH40K's version of Zerg. Just bigger and badder. Not a 100% match, though: as I understand it, Zerg are better at evolving while Tyranids are better at planetary-scale hive management and mind control.

the latter don't really add THAT much to the mix.

Except shock troops specializing in !surprise! buttsecks because Xenomorphs a) don't show on ME lifeform scanners at all and b) are immune to most area-effect poisons.

Looks like mpi is going to continue it as well,

Would be nice, that's a very interesting start.

The MP3.1415 story just came out on FFnet. I started reading it on sufficientvelocity, and I'm glad to see it there. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13366586/1/

Oh goodie! Much more convenient to keep track of there.
