Author has written 10 stories for Mechwarrior/Battletech, Terminator, Star Wars, Mass Effect, Halo, Myst/Riven, Warhammer, Gears of War, Escape from Tarkov, and Marvel's Avengers.

Hello everyone! My name is IX404, and I want to tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a fan of the Halo, Mass Effect, Mechwarrior/Battletech, TF2 and Terminator franchises, to name a few that I enjoy. I also enjoy listening to bands like Kraftwerk, Sabaton and OMD. I've always been interested in writing at an early age, and I've found that I enjoy writing stories about the franchises that I have come to love and enjoy. Since then, my writing skills have improved greatly, and I've often found that I enjoy writing for the simple sake of writing.

As such, I sincerely hope that you enjoy the stories that I will be writing about my favorite franchises, and I hope that you find my stories to be fun and enjoyable. I am also open to any constructive criticism and I greatly welcome any advice on how to improve my writing skills further. I will also be periodically updating this profile with news of new crossovers, that way you can have a chance to enjoy them as well. In other words, thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
