Author has written 3 stories for Baldur's Gate.

I could ramble on forever if I let myself, but I shall endeavor to keep it brief! My justification for investing all this time (omg so much time xD) into the noble pursuit of fan-ficcing is to practice my writing and one day raise it to a publishable level, so I am supremely grateful for any and all feedback, positive and negative. I've already improved a great deal and have learned a lot as I've gone; I couldn't do it without you guys, so big thanks!!

I have a page on deviantART (artastrophe-dot-deviantart-dot-com) that has most of my non-professional art / fan-art / original characters. In fact, it's probably mostly the characters from my BG fic, which you can also find renditions of at the fabulous Kyn's deviantART (spydrouge-dot-deviantart-dot-com) :D

I also obsessively collect art and writing references (and um everything else) on Pinterest! (pinterest-dot-com-slash-artastrophe) So if you want to see inspiration for my story and imagery for some of the characters (or a ton of other random artsy/fantasy things)... o_O


Now that my Candlekeep prequel and Baldur's Gate: I story are complete, I have been working on the BG:II sequel! Some of you may perhaps remember the original iteration of this story which I posted in 2009 as "What was Taken," though (shh) I did not in fact know what I was doing with it back then. It may reassure you to know that is no longer the case, and the years between have allowed me to come up with all kinds of interesting things to fill in what were before shallow representations and no few glaring plot holes. xD So this has been a labor of love (some years more intensely than others), and I hope you will enjoy following along!

It is basically an excuse for me to play with my psychology knowledge/obsession and explore really complex relationships of damaged people over very long character arcs, haha. I am really drawn to complexity and layers and moral ambiguity... I hope it goes without saying that my characters' views/actions aren't necessarily supported or encouraged by me. xD

Death's Favored Daughter by Winding Warpath reviews
The story of Ashura, a daughter of Bhaal who may take a bit after her father. Baldur's Gate 1 with a large rotating cast, a lot of action/adventure, and a not-so-nice protagonist. (Think: 'What if Renegade Female Commander Shepard was the protagonist of Baldur's Gate')

The Memory of Sunlight by WareTheVenom reviews
Elatharia and Imoen were inseperable as children, despite their differences; with Imoen about, Elatharia always knew things would be alright in the end. Until Irenicus. Some things cannot be healed or forgotten. And when Imoen is dragged to Spellhold, Elatharia will do anything to get her sister back. Anything at all - no matter what Jaheira or anyone else has to say about it.

Will to Live by CMY187 reviews
39-year old dwarf Dorean lacks strength, power, and a commanding appearance. What he does have are his skills as a thief, the teachings of his foster father Gorion, a willingness to do anything it would take to survive, including manipulation and murder, and the detachment of a sociopath. He will see himself and Imoen through this crisis, no matter the cost to everyone around them.

Aegis of Candlekeep, Part III by Kyn reviews
Yes, you can start reading at Part III. You'll only miss out on learning why the giant ranger protagonist is romancing Xzar, why Edwin and Imoen keep /snuggling/, why Xan and Branwen are so adorable, and who the hell told Viconia and Ajantis they were in charge of keeping each other from party infighting. Lots of dark violence and cute bonding moments, ahoy!

In which the protagonist adopts a hunter, and ends up realizing just how unhealthy, blistered, scratched up, and mold-covered the nasty things are. This one purrs, though, so that sort of makes up for it...
