The universe is big. No, that is an understatement. The universe is so vast, so infinite in its scale and complexity it is a wonder that mortal beings are even capable of thinking about it. And yet, this simple, wonderful gift can be enjoyed by any and all sophont life. This has been so for all time. In the eons since the Big Bang, the universe has expanded, evolved, changed, and reshaped itself according to a few select natural laws.
For the most part…

They continue to be asked now on all worlds amongs

The streets were overflowing with sickened, hungry guests. If they had not caught sight of the prior commotion within the building, then the smell of fresh meat caught their current attention. Linda was shocked to see the hoard on the verge of surrounding them within just moments after exiting the broken doors. Marty, however, paid little mind to them. His eyes were glued onto the lobby entrance where Bernard remained lost in the sea of bloody bodies.
"Marty! What do we do?!" the white woman screamed as she clung tightly to the fighting man.
He flailed around, desperate to get loose of her hold. He smacked her lamp weapon out of her grasp and it rolled a few feet away - right into the lumbering mob. Defenseless and frightened, Linda grabbed hold of her boss with her now-freed arm.
"Let go! Let go of me this instant!" Marty cried, not caring that the woman was only trying to save him.
"Marty, quit it! We'll come back for it later!"
"NO!" he s

John Shepard was approaching the Normandy when he was approached by his captain.
"Captain Anderson," he said with a salute. "Is there something you need?"
"At ease soldier, just wanted to chat," answered Anderson. John relaxed and immediately took notice of the women who was walking up behind him. Anderson took notice of his expression and said "Shepard, meet Jane Hiller. She's an alliance soldier like you and will be joining us on this mission."
"Hello, it's a pleasure to meet you in person Shepard," she said while putting her hand out, albeit a little shaky.
John noticing this asked, "Is there something wrong? You look like you've seen a ghost."
Jane having heard his statement snapped her mind back into reality. "Sorry, it's just you look like someone I know. Don't worry, it's alright," she said trying to sound reassuring.
In her mind things were not alright. She had not been expecting to see someone working on the Normandy with the same last n

To begin, you need just a smidgeon on the world he lives in.
--The universe my stories go down in is made up of a number of planets connected by a crazy roadmap of dimensional doorways. Portals. The place ticks much like our own world with the added dimension of MAGIC, yes, magic, defined as everything that does happen that shouldn't happen within the laws of physics. (They say that what is called 'magic' is just the set of physical laws that govern a closely overlying dimension leaking over into this one and crashing the party for the resident phy
