Summary:John Shepard needs to get away from the slums, he does the only thing someone in his situation can do – sell himself into a two year servitude.
Notes: I do realise that it doesn’t speak well for a story when you have the urge to explain it beforehand, but honestly I do. This is just a silly story which is a mix between 50 shades of grey, a Handmaids tale and the winter soldier. Seriously – I am not here to write a story about reality, but a weird type of fever dream instead. Ergo, none of anything written in this story is written to be realistic, not even close.
Thank you to Anne Sturtevant for the beta job, you save my grammar and my sanity. 😉

Cacophonies

Author: Azzy
Artist: Ruby
Beta: Robotkumo & Asylumfarm
Pairring: none
Characters: Seth Ryder × Liam Kosta × Gil Brodie × Foster Addison × Cora Harper × Clancy Arquist × Alec Ryder
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Everybody fucking dies × No happy end × Insanity × Murder × Alternate Universe – Dark × alternate universe – no space travel × Alternate Universe – Post-Apocalypse × Madness × No Romance × Implied/Referenced Rape/Non-con × Implied/Referenced Child Abuse × Implied/Referenced Self-Harm × Implied/Referenced Abuse × Implied/Referenced Drug Addiction × Daddy Issues
Summary: Seth Ryder is awoken from cryosleep to a world that is very different than the one he knew. The only thing he has to hold onto is his survival instinct and his ever present voice in his head called Sam.
Authors note: This story was supposed to be twice as long, so I had to end it on a cliffhanger and who knows, I might write the other half to the next mebb?! This was actually just the introduction of Seth and the universe – but it just has to work as a story, cause I ran out of time.
Anyways I feel like I should explain this story a little.
I am aware that this is a super simplistic and crude depiction of hearing voices, but it’s too hard to write too many voices in his head, but also I wanted to play into the fact that during the game Sam tells you what to do, so it’s not that I am trying to depicture a realistic and true image of what it means to hear voices. Nor am I poking fun at people who hear voices or mental illness in general.
All the ‘implied’ warnings above is only a mention by Sam inside Seth’s mind, Sam likes to remind Seth of terrible things, so it’s just like a line or two, but I still felt I should warn for it. I made up my own universe for this, and I hope it makes somewhat sense, I borrowed heavily from games like Fallout and Killzone. And while the game Senua’s sacrifice was not out when I wrote this, then I can see how some of those themes could resemble themes in this story too. You can see a screencapture of Seth here.
Thank you a million to AsylumFarm & Robotkumo who looked my story over and tried to make it work. You guys rock!! And thank you to Ruby who was my artist again this year, it’s always a joy to work with you – seriously. Go see her wonderful art here.

Battle Brother

author: Azzy
beta:
warning:Pining, Unrequited Crush, Suicide, Depression, Alternate Universe – Modern Setting, Alternate Universe – No Reapers
rating: M
fandom: Mass Effect
pairring: Mshep/Kaidan
Summary: John Shepard one day decides to break his isolation and visit the local soup kitchen because Veterans eat for free.

A/N: For I_Write_Tragedies_Not_Sins.
This is a “modern” AU, there are geth and space travel, but no reapers and earth is largely as it is present day. Shepard was dismissed after Akuze so there is no n7 or spectre stuff.

I wrote this for the mass effect fic swap 2016, which I had never planned on participating in, only running. But then I_write_sins_not_tragedies needed a parter to swap with and I stepped up – she asked for a tragedy, and I pulled all the stops…. BUT for those of you who like a less depressing ending, I have a epilogue/alternate ending because even I felt they deserved a little happiness. Thank you to Ruby/Solstheim & HeavenOnFire for giving me feedback – I simply ran out of time because RL was hammering me and I couldn’t incorporate everything you suggested.

Also sorry for the lack of beta – didn’t have time to find one. =(

Faux Pas [chapter 13/14]

author: azzy
beta: none
illustrations: maxxiedemon
warning: implied child abuse, major character death, bigotry, AU medieval setting.
rating: M+
fandom: mass effect
pairring: kaidan/mshep, implied; miranda/shep, jack/shep
wip: 13/14

So I decided to cut this short, truth is that I simply don’t remember what I wanted to write, but I do remember the end, so I sorta just re-arrenged things and pulled out all the inbetween. I have changed the warnings as a result of the changes. (with other words, I removed the happy end tag, and gave it an open ending tag) – Thanks to Portionsmaster for kicking my ass in regards to finishing this.

I listened to this while writing, thought I’d reccomend the new album by Faun while i was at it, it is super! Faun – Federkleid
