    Summary

    Most, when presented with ADVENT, would not hesitate to ring the death knell for them. The Elders fully expect this as XCOM draws closer to the Hunter's Stronghold. But when faced with a fate far different than what they ever could have imagined, how will the Chosen react in the face of it? Where will their future lead?

    Summary

    You tell someone from 2015 that aliens will rule the world by 2016, they'll call you a liar.

    You tell someone from 2020 that XCOM will rise up to fight said aliens, they'll call you a liar.

    You tell XCOM that a bunch of teenagers are gonna be their only hope of survival, they'll most likely shoot you after calling you a liar.

    Summary

    Meet Echo Squad; just another random expendable squad that XCOM High Command created when the many other squads and fire teams are out there infiltrating somewhere, being wounded, or being outright wiped out.

    Oh, just ignore the many embedded mages and bishops from another anime medieval world, and veterans of the War on Terror with varying degrees of sanity. Compared to the other squads under XCOM's employ, they are more normal than anything else.

    *Extremely* loosely based on 'The XCOM Anthology Set' by ElizabethOlsenIsMySpiritAnimal, which can be changed depending on said author's permission, as soon as I can figure out how to PM.

    Summary

    A crossover between the excellent Dresden Files and XCOM:EW.

    "Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying." - Arthur C Clarke.

    From my teenage years, I thought I knew the answer to that question. I knew of many different Non-Human factions, had survived an otherworldly demon, and have a freaking Faerie godmother.

    What I never thought of, was asking the question with all the paranormal factions on this messily little speck of dust we call home, are We Alone?

    I learned the answer to that question was different than I knew, while eating a Whopper with Cheese ™.

    And now the Burger King was on fire, and it was my fault.

    The now immolated alien in front of me was the ignition point, though I might have overcooked him in my anger.

     

    Tl;dr Harry and some new heavily armed friends vs Alien Invasion.

    Summary

    The abduction of the Commander was nothing short of a death blow to any chance that Humanity could repel ADVENT from Earth. It was like the flame that kept the Human Resistance ablaze had been snuffed out.

    John Bradford took the failure of XCOM and the cause for what came to be called Unification Day completely on his shoulders, promising that if he ever again found her, that he would never allow any harm to come to the Commander. After he rescues her from a sarcophagus, the man who waited two decades for his mentor is now faced with an impossible chance—and forces the Commander to question if she is willing to risk the fragile future of the Initiative for a gamble at a happiness she never believed to be possible.

    Summary

    A UNSC frigate is sent into another dimension after a disaster with their slipspace drive. Now lost in unknown territory, they must attempt to befriend the population of a local planet of strange humans under constant siege from an army of monsters. Consider this a minor AU as RWBY hasn't explained a few things about it's world that I have filled in.

    Summary

    Due to a tiny accident - namely, not reading the operator's manual - the Psi Gate has malfunctioned and broken the fabric of reality just a tiny bit.

    Admittedly, it's not such a tiny bit for Jane Kelly, the present version of whom has just landed face-first in the future, where the war with the Elders is long over and she's since put down her guns to become a loving wife, caring mother, and kick-ass dance instructor. It's a dream come true, if one excuses the fact that she has no idea how to adjust to any of it, or how to interact with her leader-turned spouse and her future daughter. Meanwhile, the future version of Jane Kelly lands face-first in a past she'd long since left behind and had no real intentions of ever visiting again. Forced to relive the war that she fought for over twenty years, Jane must examine a side of her that she long since thought buried.

    It falls upon XCOM to, in no particular order, get their version of Jane back, send the future Jane back to well, the future, and maybe keep ADVENT from discovering the time-traveling Ranger and using her knowledge to doom humanity in the process.

    It just wouldn't be an XCOM mission if it were easy.

    Summary

    It was a new world Jynn found herself waking up to, so much had changed within those 20 years of experimentation and imprisonment in that suit. She was thankful to be free of that hell but hesitant to take on the roll she found herself thrusted back into. Commander of XCOM, a mere memory of what it once was. They had a lot on their plate, build up the resistance, sabotage ADVENT and the aliens, and take back the Earth from the Elders.
    It was no help that the Elders wanted her back badly. Hunting them down like a pack of wild dogs, undermining their cause at every turn. And then those Chosen, another layer of annoyance XCOM and the Resistance had to deal with. Just how integral was she their to their Psionic Network? Was there something more?
    -----------
    Comments welcome. Would like the interaction which just might influence future chapters.
