Salvation Shorts Logo by EspionageDB7

Ladies and Gentlemen allow me to acquaint you with a concept I came up with called "Salvation Shorts". Obviously, from the title you can gather that this will be related to my ongoing Fan Fiction series, and allow me to elaborate. Episodes I - IV will consist of a very focal, very specific plot. Meaning there will not be too much deviation from the storyline and/or mission/objective for say side missons, or crew interactions, as is one of the staples in the Mass Effect Series. This is something I tried to do with Salvation 1, such as the scene with the crew playing Skillian-5 in the Mess Hall, or the side romance between Jack and Thane, or the mission to save the trapped researchers at the Exo-Geni facility etc. This is also something I plan to do plenty of in Salvation II. But in the meantime, I'm working on my Episodic Installments. The episodes, as you saw from The Taking of the Carmenta Illustria will not leave much room for things like side missions, or little deviations such as perhaps a date on the Citadel between two love interests, or a bit of friendly chit-chat and banter between squadmates. So I've devised a way to throw these types of things in between the episodes. 

Followers of Salvation... I give you the prospect of "Salvation Shorts!" These will be mini 1-2 chapter addendums and nuances to my series. Nothing crucial to the story, but fun little diversions nonetheless. As I said, they may be side missions that I think would be interesting for our heroes to handle. Or even something as simple as a nice romantic outing. Admittedly, I'm actually planning a Valentine's Day Short. Don't quote me on this, and don't hold me to it, but I'm PLANNING on featuring Tali and Shepard, Gordon and Miranda, and perhaps even Jack and Thane and/or Jacob and Ms. Vanessa Masters. Still have to flesh it out, but I'm defintely planning something. You can expect Episode II to start sometime in Spring or Summer of this year, but I have a few shorts planned in between. 

And one in particular that i have planned will be titled "An Interview with the Legends." This will actually be an indepth interview that one of my original characters, Ms. Cameron McClane (or as she'll henceforth be known 'Action Cam' McClane) will conduct with both Freeman and Shepard. She'll be asking the questions that the galaxy wants answered. This will also be a way for me to delve a little into the untold origins of our heroes. I've got sort of a whole life story thought up in my mind for them, and I'll be disclosing a bit of it.

This is where you, the readers, come in! (If there are any of you left out there lol) I'd like you to do me a favor. Call this an interactive short. Think of questions that you would ask Gordon Freeman and Commander Shepard, if you could. Now, obvioulsy I'm not the writers at Valve or Bioware, but I will do my absolute best to answer the questions, from their lips to your ears, as if it was actually these two fiction characters themselves. In laymens terms, give me questions that Cameron would ask Freeman and Shepard. "What made you decide to join the Alliance Military, Commander Shepard?" "When did you first realize you wanted to be a physicist, Dr. Freeman?" Things like that. Well, anything you want really! Ask anything! And post as many questions as you want. I'll try and answer all of them. Now keep in mind, that if the questions is utterly ridiculous - I may not include it. Nothing sexual. You may ask about the characters' relationships, but nothing too lewd, vulgar, or offensive. You get the jist. Basically, I want you to ask the questions you would ask if you could meet these two characters. Post them here. Reply to this journal. I'm planning 2 -3 shorts before I start Episode II. And this one will be a good one for starts. So don't delay! Ask away! I look forward to reading your questions :D

My name is Jesse De La Rosa and I don't know if I consider myself an artist or not, but I know that I do enjoy making creations in photoshop. Most of what I do is logos, websites, wallpapers, and general graphic touching up. I'm always looking to expand my graphic knowledge and I try to learn something new everyday.

I also don't know if I'd consider myself a writer or not, but I am the author of SALVATION: A Half-Life/Mass Effect Universe Fan Fiction which intertwines the paths of two legendary heroes of gaming; Dr. Gordon Freeman and Commander John Shepard, as they attempt to stand against an enemy bent on annihilating all life in the known galaxy.

Note isn't sending, so posting this here.


It's a odd choice. But need it for a future story, and to help out a friend. Since it's a part of this story I'm working together with friend.

Write this scene?

If you can, hope it's not too hard.

The girl is allie, and you know the creepy demon lady is Megaria.

I'm making progress on it, but a bit slowly - sorry it's hard to write about stuff you know nothing about, plus I keep getting side tracked with other stuff lol. I've shared the doc with you on google drive if you wanna see

Oh, I saw it. it's marvelous work. And you've done epically so far, take your time. If you feel you can write more, then if you can't I'll just send what you'd done.

If you feel finished, just note it to me and I'll send it to CMR Rosa on ;)

I'll finish the scene, it's just that it's one thing ontop of several I need to do
