Author has written 28 stories for Valdemar universe, Mass Effect, Jade Empire, Dragon Age, and Star Wars.
EDIT March 2021:
I forget I have this account until suddenly I get some story favorites and remember! I'm mid 30s, married to my own real life Kaidan Alenko, and still writing fanfiction very occasionally. But I really only publish on AO3, so check me out there. :)
Hi! I'm Impsy. I'm 25 years old, and I am a shameless Bioware fan. Okay, that kind of sounds like I'm attending meetings. "I'm Impsy, and I have a problem - I fall in love with video game characters." I love to write, and fanfiction is a fun side project to do when I'm stuck on my original stuff, and the games that get me wanting to write the most are Bioware's games (Mass Effect and Dragon Age mainly). I usually write romance/angst, and my biggest ships are Shenko (Kaidan/femShep from Mass Effect), Alistair/Cousland and Hawke/Anders (Dragon Age), and Carth/Revan (KotOR). I also ship Shepard/Joker (Mass Effect) and femHawke/Varric (Dragon Age 2), though I don't really write those two.
You can find me on twitter and tumblr. I also co-moderate F*ck Yeah Bioware and F*ck Yeah Carth Onasi. Feel free to PM or AIM me - my sn is ImpsyTheAlmighty.
Stories in progress:
Mass Effect: All of my ME fics take place with my "canon" Irien Shepard, a Paragon, spacer, war hero soldier who fell for Kaidan Alenko; my profile picture on here is of her.
-"Afterparty" - Shepard and Kaidan reunited after Shepard returned from Omega 4, but now he's meeting the rest of the (rather intimidating) crew, all of whom know what happened on Horizon. Not exactly the best impression. Despite his best wishes, things don't go as smoothly as he hoped. Directly follows my "Shepard's Loyalty Mission" series.
-Working on some random snippets that take place after my "Shepard's Loyalty Mission" series.
-Other Shenko-y oneshots are also in various stages of completion.
Dragon Age: Almost all are written about my PC, Irien Cousland, who married Alistair.
-"Missives" tells post-game events (AU from Awakening, I started it before the expansion came out) through letters the characters write to each other. On hold.
-"Sincerely Yours" expands on the events mentioned in Missives. On hold.
-"Expectations" is set during Dragon Age: Awakening. The first chapter is from Anders' POV. He's a bit behind on Ferelden current events, so he's rather surprised at his rescuer's identity. The second is about Nathaniel and his thoughts about Cousland rescuing him, as well, and the fallout from his father killing her parents and her killing his father.
-"In the Shadows" - Will be five chapters long. Ch 1-3 done, 4 in progress (on hold), and 5 still unwritten.
Mercedes Lackey's "Valdemar" series: "Limitless" - On hold, most likely never to be completed as I started it a shamefully long time ago.
