Author has written 7 stories for Halo, and Gears of War.

Hello! Gnarled here.

Gears of War has turned out to be my absolute favorite universe, ever. It very well satiates my desire for blood and guts, but also gooey, mushy love stories. :DD

But the thing I love the most it hearing what people think about my stories. Like it or hate it, I live off of input! Feel free to review any of my stories with your honest thoughts, or send me a bunch of spammy messages on how you love them. Anything!

But most of all, enjoy!

ABOUT MY STORIES: In case you ever wanted to know what I thought...

A Moment of Marcus: A one-shot, the beginning of my obsession with Marcus and Anya being totally meant for each other. Personally, I think it is my most decent attempt at the pairing since. Inspired by beating Gears 2 for the first time.

Delta's Day Off:A first attempt at a chaptered story, told in small snapshots of the day. A long distance sequel to 'A Moment of Marcus', this fic is decent. There's not much detail, but a lot of story, which is okay I guess. Readers seem to like it-- on DeviantArt there's like twelve pictures about it. XD

Search and Rescue: AUGH. ANGUISH AND PAIN. (That's all I have to say about this one.)

Jacinto Nights: In the Gears comics, there is a fleeting, two-page scene where Marcus fights off some bums in a bar, protecting Anya. But then nothing else is said. So what happened? My take on that night. Some of the ideas from S&R may be recycled in this one, which was not intentional but necessary. This fic is much more detail-intensive, with longer chapters and a more meaningful take on why they go together so well. It is not tied to the other three Marcus/Anya stories I have previously written. (Oh, and btw folks-- I have not forgotten about this lovely piece of awesomeness! There are a few parts I'm not happy with, after I finish LOT I'll be sure to come back and fix them. And then it will be complete. :3 )

Things We Never Said: After reading Jacinto's Remnant, I was left with all these little mooshy scenes floating around in my head, because Marcus and Anya are just so effing CUTE. (And JR makes the pairing CANON now, btw. :D ) But anyway, just a gooey little one-shot about how they need each other. I am very pleased with this fic.

Like Old Times: A look into the future of the Gears universe 25 years. I over-simplify the defeat of the Locust, but that's so I can get on with developing the characters as they would be when they get that old. And although the whole Marcus/Anya thing is part of the story, it's not the central point, which makes me happy. I'm branching out. But I think this is a very interesting concept, because we know their past thanks to the lovely work of Karen Traviss, but what about their future?

The Box: Old, old, old fic. Dont ask me about it.

The Ephyran War Hymns by HyperSoft reviews
War is immense; endless as the sky it rages under. A Gear's life is trivial by comparison, little more than a finite sum of years. But years are made of moments: for some soldiers, those moments can be more powerful than even the bloodiest battles. [Back from hiatus]

A Grievous Redemption by Jord reviews
My take on Gears of War 3. Marcus Fenix searches for clues to his father's past, and his connection to the Locust Queen. His quest is impeded, however, by insurmountable odds, as he and Delta Squad make their final stand against vengeance-seeking Locusts.
