Author has written 9 stories for Mass Effect, Star Wars, and Dragon Age.

I now have an AO3 profile! If you would rather read my stuff there, here's a link to it: org/users/Lilliwyn/profile

Hi there, I'm Lilliwyn! Welcome to my profile! :D

I am currently a music student in college. As such, I have very little time outside of which is taken up by homework, in rehearsal, or spent alone locked in a practice room with my flute for many long hours. O.o

When I do have a little bit of time, though, I love to play video games, and sometimes write about them. Most of BioWare's rpgs fall under my favorites, and their environments and characters are usually what my fanfics are about. Their worlds are just so immersive that I can't stop exploring them even after I finish one of their games. :)

If you're wondering about what you can expect from me as an author, I absolutely love romance, mild angst, hurt/comfort stories, thrillers, some action/adventure, and bittersweet tragedies. As such, most of my stories fall under those categories.

Here's some info about my stories:

Mass Effect Trilogy

Goodnight, My Angel (Mainly ME3; some flashbacks to ME1 and 2, slightly AU): Inspired by a Billy Joel song, this is a four shot that features how Kaidan deals with his grief over the loss of Commander Shepard by recalling memories through a series of songs. This is currently in progress.

Live and Learn (pre-ME1): This was an attempt at exploring the terrible events that Shepard may have experienced during the massacre at Akuze that was mentioned for the Sole-Survivor background. I don't like the direction of the story now, and have put this fic on what will most likely be a permanent hold; I'm honestly rather tempted to take it down completely. We'll see what happens.

Rest in Peace (ME1): This is my first fanfic! I love bittersweet, sappy tragedies. So I, naturally, came up with a tragic and sappy alternate ending of the first Mass Effect! It, of course, has character death in it.

Tears on a Sleepless Night (ME1): I didn't think that Bioware delved deeply enough into the emotional pain that Shepard may have experienced after Virmire, so I explored that in my fic. In this oneshot, Kaidan and Shepard share their feelings about the tragic event.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Series

Finding You: Revan is captured by the "True Sith" and the Jedi Exile is forced to find old friends to help her rescue old comrade. Like Live and Learn, I am not happy with the direction of the story, and it is most likely permanently on hold.

Letting Go: This is my interpretation of what would happen if Carth caught up with Revan before she left for the Unknown Regions. Oneshot.

Dragon Age: Origins

Dandelions: This is a series of oneshots that show how my human noble Warden became the woman she was during the blight. It will contain a oneshot for each year from age six to eighteen. This fic is currently in progress.

I Love You, Always: What would happen to a Cousland Warden if Alistair, who she was actually married to, died to slay the Archdemon? What if she was betrothed to someone else so that she could stay on the Fereldan throne? This is what I think may happen. It is a multi-chapter fic that is currently in progress that features a Female Cousland x Teagan Guerrin pairing. It contains character death in the first chapter and some tragic elements.

The Rose Among the Thorns: In this oneshot I decided to explore Alistair's sensitive side as well as the Cousland Warden's as she tries to deal with the grief she is experiencing over her the murder of her family.


To all those who review/favorite/put alerts on my stories, thank you so much! I appreciate, read, and reread each one of them! :)
