The Swing of Things

Have you ever wondered what the crew of the first Normandy were up to before they joined Shepard’s merry band of misfits? The Swing of Things explores how a few of our favorite crew members knew each other and just why then ended up on the SR-1 in the first place. This story takes place before Mass Effect.

I’d intended to end it with Chapter 4 but then a plot bunny ran by with Ambassador Udina in its mouth and now I’m deep into Chapter 16 and the end has come into sight, if only I can get there from here. I know where I want the story to go but it simply refuses to cooperate. Chapter 10 explores Kaidan's personal history and Anderson shares a little of his own in Chapter 12.
