Author has written 28 stories for Hana Yori Dango, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Fallout.

Hello! I'm an over-educated, occasionally unemployed 30-something-year-old with a BA in English and Japanese, and an MA in Asian Studies. I'm also mother to a preschooler who keeps me busy when I'm supposed to be writing. I've been writing fanfiction for over 15 years now. I'm currently writing Dragon Age and Mass Effect fanfics, with hopes to return to Hana Yori Dango stories in the near future.

I mirror my stories on AO3. I may eventually start posting stories there that you can't find here. You can find me at And when I'm not writing or chasing around a preschooler, you can find me on Tumblr:

If anyone's curious what Tangerine/Illyria looks like from my Dragon Age fics, that's her in my profile pic. :)

- Ma'nehn & Amatus series - Stories (usually oneshots) featuring my canon for Dorian Pavus and Aeric Lavellan. Stories are related, but can be read alone. Chronological order is as follows:

  1. "A Bit of History"
  2. "Settling In"
  3. "Sound of the Unlocking"
  4. "On Scars and Slavery"
  5. "For the Soul"
  6. "A Capable Hunter"
  7. "Ma'nehn"
  8. "The Lift Away"

- Never Changes series - Fallout/Dragon Age Crossover AU. Only one story so far, but will eventually be a series of short stories featuring Dorian Pavus and Aeric Lavellan in the Fallout universe. This came about after an ask on Tumblr about what Dorian and Aeric would be like in Fallout. This AU posits that Thedas was a virtual reality simulation like the one in Tranquility Lane in Fallout 3. Dorian and Aeric discover that the world they know is fake and escape from the simulation, only to find themselves in the Fallout nuclear wasteland, having lost their memories of who they really are.

  1. "Not Much"

3/5/15
Works in Progress:

Doing Dragon Age Inquisition oneshots at the moment. Trying not to do any long fic until I have more time to devote to them... o.O;;

"Diverged in a Yellow Wood" - An AU Pavellan fic that is not part of my Ma'nehn & Amatus series. I'm trying to cut back on the obsessive binge-writing so I can do other things with my life (haha...), but I'm going to try to update at least once a week.

Hibernating:

"The Value of Royal Blood (Light Version)" - I SWEAR I will continue this, but I've got to work my way back to it. I've got almost everything planned out, but there's a lot to cover...

"Beyond the Looking Glass" - Lost momentum due to RL craziness, but I hope to have time to return to it eventually, after re-playing some DA:O for a refresher. Main events are plotted out, but the journey between each event is giving me some trouble.

"Eurydice Rising" - I've lost momentum with this story, but I do intend on finishing it when I have the time and inspiration. I do have an ending planned for this story, and actually my graduate research helped me with ideas for how to get to that ending, so once I'm not so incredibly busy, I hope to get back to this. I'm thinking I'll need to reread the manga and watch the dramas to make sure I get back into the swing of things - I want to make sure I continue to get the characterization right.
