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

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
A young dwarf is marked for death and thrown into a world beset with strife and violence. Lacking strength, power and exceptional leadership skills, Dorean must instead rely on the aid and support of his companions as well as the teachings of his foster father Gorion. His survival will depend on what he would do, and how far he would go, to keep himself and his people alive.

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 and a not-so-nice protagonist. There will be blood. There will be an odd pairing or two. There will be pulpy swashbuckling. There will be Imoen and Xan trying to keep it all from completely going to The Abyss. There will be Shar-Teel doing the opposite.

Join Aegis: a large, plate-wearing ranger on her epic quest to keep her party members from killing each other. 'Twould be simpler if she wasn't romancing a necromancer. Or if Imoen would just let environmental hazards kill off Edwin already. Or if Kivan would just please *stop* trying to arrow Viconia. Or if Xan would maybe relax a little. Or if...

Aegis of Candlekeep, Part II by Kyn reviews
In which Shar-Teel gets laid low by a Moonblade-wielding enchanter, Viconia ends up babysitting a Helmite, and Imoen is dead-set on befriending an extremely bad-tempered Red Wizard. At least Xan and Branwen are being adorable with each other. Oh, and then there's the issue of Kivan: the world's least reasonable and most competent drow-hater. Aegis always hires the best of the best.

Aegis of Candlekeep by Kyn reviews
Aegis' biggest vice was alcohol. Unless you were Jaheira. Then Aegis' biggest vice was the fact she was sleeping with a madman. Alas, but every ranger needs her necromancer, right? Now if only they can keep the Thayan and the Witch woman from murdering each-other, and maybe convince Imoen and Montaron not to rob the town blind... [Charname X Xzar]
