Author has written 4 stories for Mass Effect, and RWBY.

Hi there. I'm a geek with never-ending interest in science fiction, storytelling, and characters. I read books and fanfiction or play video games to relax, and I find writing is my favorite creative outlet. I hope you find my work enjoyable and worthwhile; I've put a lot of work into anything I post here, gone over every chapter time after time after time, so I hope any remaining errors won't be too glaring. :)

I like using science fiction in particular to engage imagination and to investigate characters. I hope that my attention to characters makes it through in my work, as I see them as the cornerstone of an immersive, entertaining, and worthwhile story.

Please leave reviews in my stories, and I will reply (usually I wait until I update though)!

Thanks, and enjoy.


Completed Stories (Ordered by earliest publishing date first)

Rising Tide
A Mass Effect Story
Tags: Original Characters, character death
Summary: Follow another ship and crew in the fifth fleet beginning shortly after the end of Mass Effect's storyline. Follow the crew as they deal with their own issues; from acceptance to death to friendship and more. With the outrage at the geth attack on the Citadel, things are getting more heated more quickly, forcing everyone to be at their best form--ready for the coming tidal forces or not.

Sapient Mira Series 01 - Waking Mira
A Mass Effect Story
Tags: Alternate Reality, Mature Themes
Summary: A story of one young woman thrust into sapience on the eve of Shepard's mission to Noveria. Alarmed, confused, mistreated and worse, will this AI turn into another cautionary tale following the examples of so many of her precursors? Will her sapience save organic life, or doom it? Is there more than just logical transistors behind a holographic face? This is Mira's story of dealing with prejudice, lies, friendship, and violence, among others.
Note: Works as a stand-alone, but there's room for expansion into a series.

The Stubborn Soldier Series - My Cause and My Love
A Mass Effect Story
Tags: Rated M, alternate reality, adult themes, brief language, femslash
Summary: My name is Ashley Williams. I'm not famous; you wouldn't have heard of me. If you looked at me, you'd never know the extreme circumstances that took me from a small colony to the heart of the Council races. The things I've witnessed over this journey have shocked me, awed me, and changed me. I'm not the woman I was; I've been changed. But in the wake of everything that's happened, the galaxy itself has been changed as well. I can't hope to know how all this will work out, or what long-lasting repercussions these events will have. No, the only thing I can hope to make sense of is how it has affected me, and those around me. This is my story.
Note: Written as a stand-alone, but there's room for expansion into a series.

Neopolitan
A RWBY Story
Tags: Femslash
Summary: Neopolitan and Cinder have a very complicated relationship; neither fully understands the other. What they do understand, however, is that they cannot stay away, no matter the risk of getting burned. They each have their secrets, but share a truth between themselves: what they have is irreplaceable.
Note: Depending on future inspiration, this may become expanded at a later date. For now, it's a poignant one-shot with a character that is enigmatic when watching from the outside. Neo made me fall in love with her without speaking a line in volume 2; hopefully this helps explain why.


Stories in Progress (Ordered by highest priority first)

Untitled - "The Shiala Fanfic"
A Mass Effect Story
Warnings: Alternate reality, violence, language, mind control/exploitation, PTSD
Summary: Shiala suffered incalculably for following her Matriarch into a mission doomed by a lack of intel and understanding about the power Saren utilized. When she is unexpectedly rescued by a human, she must fight to take her life back from her mind's fears. Shiala's toughest mission in her entire lifetime begins here.
Update - 2015 01 12 - Rough drafted into chapter 3. No beta reader yet.

The Stubborn Soldier Series - Untitled, Book 2
A Mass Effect Story
Warnings: Alternate reality, violence, language, femslash
Summary: Losing Shepard was a shock to Ashley William's system. Losing Liara, however, threatened to decimate her.
Note: This is very preliminary, and if inspiration fails, may be removed. However, I cannot deny that I, too, am interested to see Ashley's Mass Effect 2.
Update - 2015 01 12 - Rough drafted into chapter 2. No beta reader yet.

Sentient Mira Series 02 - Perception
A Mass Effect Story
Warnings: slight alternate reality, mature themes.
Sovereign was defeated, and Mira begins to adjust to life aboard the Normandy. Unfortunately, the galaxy's state of affairs are threatening to fall apart as Arcadia and her surviving crew attempt to find a solution to the Reaper threat. With all the sudden, stark changes going on outside the ship, the crew will have to rely on each other to persevere--but what about trusting one of THEM, an enemy--an AI?
