    Summary

    In the late 2170s, David Anderson's a rising star, newly graduated from the N7 Academy and looking to make his mark on the galaxy. He decides to serve on the SSV Tokyo, captained by the enigmatic war hero named Shepard.

    He knew that there would be intense combat and hard choices ahead of him, but he was definitely not prepared to get dragged into the tragedy that's been building between his mentor and the Spectre Saren Arterius.

    (or, two assholes play a game of het chicken, which ends in multiple fatalities and also the apocalypse)

    Saren and Shepard role-swap and it's just really good. Preserves Saren's role as ME1 villain and upgrades all the character dynamics to 11/10.

    Almost wish I'd written it, but I DON'T HAVE THE GRAPES TO PULL THIS OFF. Really worth a read!

    Saren Arterius and David Anderson are friends. Did I mention it's a canon rewrite where Shepard recruits Saren on Virmire? Also it's brilliant.

    GO READ. APPRECIATE FIC.

    How to write a slowburn in less than 10k words. The closest thing I've read to a compressed novel.
