Biomass Effect is a Mass Effect & Prototype crossover fic by Beastrider9. It has amassed over 2.5k reviews, over 3.5k faves, and over 3.9k follows on

The author has posted illustrations of some creatures in the story to his DeviantArt gallery.[1]

Videos of the fic being read in Spanish (up to chapter 30) have been uploaded to [[YouTube] by NINO04.[2]

The author has stated that "Biomass Effect came about after reading a lot of alternate first contact stories for various Mass Effect fics. I happen to like these kinds of stories and wanted to take a shot at it myself. I was always interested in biology, but couldn't think of a way to use that interest as much as I wanted, until I thought of Prototype. I simply took Prototype to its logical conclusion if the virus got really out of hand. It snowballed from there. It is probably my favorite story to write because I put a lot of my beliefs into it. Such as my transhumanist ideals. It is without a doubt my most popular story as well, and I love getting feedback from all of you as it goes on. So thanks for that, you rock."[3]


All life on Earth had been consumed by Blacklight. With no Biomass to feed on, Blacklight had to evolve, adapt, and grow. Now a collective Council of Aliens discovers the existence of such a life form. How do the aliens see a form of life that is viral, how they deal with it, what are the consequences to the galaxy of such a race existing at all.


It's epic in length and technical but an interesting AU.[4]
