In some cases, due to the passage of time, members have created new Elseworlds threads with the same or similar premises to old ones; these are listed together here.
Waiving the usual CDN rule against involving characters from the Mass Effect canon, CDN characters meet and interact with Shepard's crew, allies, and/or other major figures.
CDN characters are transposed into alternate settings, historical or fictional.
Characters' pasts and (potential) futures are shown.
The consequences of a pivotal event in the characters' pasts having played out differently.
The circumstances of characters (possible) eventual deaths are revealed.
A number of CDN characters meet one another during their childhoods.
Characters at an advanced age reflect back on their choices and accomplishments during their lives.
Riffing off the occasional habit of some characters (anecdotally, often turians) to post while drunk, any character - regardless of how out-of-character such behaviour may normally be - may post while drunk.
CDN characters as superheroes.
Following the premise that "Cerberus Daily News" is an HV show, members post as the actors tasked with portraying their characters.
Characters meet the members who create and write them.
Based on the running joke alternate meaning of "CDN", characters (regarded as single, whatever their canon relationship status) post their introductions on an extranet dating service.
Characters make diary entries.
The consequences of CDN not existing, and therefore characters from the board never encountering one another.
CDN members discover various consumer items and whatnot from present-day Earth.
CDN members become Spectres (whether by merit, or database glitches), and detail their exploits.
Scenes in the future featuring the now-adult children of CDN members.
CDN members as different species.
CDN members becoming huskified.
CDN members find themselves in the quaint town of Silent Hill.
CDN members in the afterlife, whatever form it may take and whether or not they actually died.
CDN members are the leading intelligence of a Reaper. Shenanigans happen.
Hell is other...
"Hell is other..." threads involve characters of a certain species who, out of canon, are all somehow stuck together in some isolated location with no means of escape and nothing much to do besides interact with one another. Unlike the majority (though not all) of Elseworlds threads, which are individual unconnected posts, "Hell is other..." threads are traditional continuous role-play threads.
