Author has written 25 stories for Elder Scroll series, Dragon Age, and Mass Effect.

I've purged a number of stories because of triggering content that wasn't correctly warned about or because my head-canon has changed. Thanks to the reader who pointed the triggery stuff in my stories; all future stories will be warned about correctly. (The Dutiful Daughter and Blighted and the Bold had been written before I started using triggering warnings, and will likely be rewritten to take into account or remove the problematic stuff). I also apologise if anyone has been triggered by my stories.

The Ashes of Roses
Three mages, all cousins through the intertwining family trees of the Free Marcher nobility, Cullen had loved. One had died a hero; the second chose an apostate and started a war. Perhaps with the third, an Inquisitor with the strongest will he'd ever seen and griefs much like his own, he might have a little luck.

The Dogs of War
Thom Rainier is forming a mercenary company to reclaim an Antivan town that rightfully belongs to Lady Mara D'Antiva, so he hires a Tevinter soldier, a runaway templar, an exiled archer and an apostate as his core crew. If the Lady doesn't kill the archer, the templar kill the apostate and the Tevinter soldier kill them all, he might just be able to pull it off.

May the Nine Preserve Us reviews
Alduin has returned and in desperation, Akatosh has dispatched a man-turned-deity and a priest who was once His avatar to Nirn to help stop the World-Eater. The other Divines have also selected their Champions. Skyrim's mead sales just went through the roof.

What's the Dragonish Word for Sarcasm? reviews
"Of all the people Akatosh had to choose from in Skyrim to make Dragonborn, he chose me: Rionach, a bardic apprentice from the Reach who's only slightly less awful than Lurbuk and perpetually on Dean Viarmo's bad side. We're so doomed it's not funny."

A Tinker's Damn reviews
A tinker's damn means not worth much. Saddled with the fate of Ferelden, Regan Mac Lanna, a half-dwarven bastard and occasional tinker, will have to prove otherwise as a Warden. Thankfully, there's several people who believe in her - one of them being her Arl's handsome younger brother...

This Time Around reviews
Fenris comes to Skyhold with a Hawke he no longer respects and might just find a new purpose. Rated T for some implied adult themes and mentions of death and terrorism. Gift to Eilonwy Cousland.

Kein ko Tiid do Vokun (War in a Time of Shadows) reviews
Sequel to Lokaal ko Tiid do Vokun (Love in a Time of Shadows). The Dragonborn has been called to High Hrothgar. Enemies gather in the shadows cast by Alduin and strife is the only constant in a land wracked by civil war and prophecy. A good thing that she is the Agent of Strife, a Nightingale of Nocturnal.

Skippy the Boxing Kangaroo reviews
Sequel to 'Commander Shepard, Space Marine'. Kaidan Alenko's life is... interesting, to say the least. He's humanity's first Spectre and in love with a famous actress. But he's not quite sure about the stuffed toy kangaroo she keeps in pride of place in her apartment...

The Shirt on Your Back reviews
Teagan and Regan Mac Lanna like the shirt that the other is wearing. Set after A Tinker's Damn, so not yet canonical. Spoilers for DA2/DAI.

Commander Shepard, Space Marine (Or the Show that Kaidan Hates) reviews
He's humanity's first Spectre. She's the star of a popular kitschy Alliance military drama. Together, they fight the guys who blew up the best sushi place in town! (Or what happens when someone challenges me to write Mass Effect as a Galaxy Quest-type show and I decide to make elements of it the equivalent of Star Trek within the Mass Effect universe).

Below the Salt
Spoilers for DAI! Regan Mac Lanna has always lived below the salt. Her greatest allies sit with her while her greatest enemies feast above it. But live or die, she wouldn't have it any other way. Trigger warning for violence, implied suicide ideation and classism.

The Cannib-Jarl reviews
The final story in Ysraneth's Tale. Ysraneth becomes the Jarl of Falkreath. T for a bit of language, implied femslash and cannibalism.

Tip the Hangman on the Way to the Gallows reviews
Everyone knows there's a connection between Fade energy and the taint. When Blackwall the Grey Warden finds himself listening to a traumatised Deidre Trevelyan deal with her past in Highever, he knows he can't make it better for her. But at least he can teach the Inquisitor how to live until she must die. Blighted!verse AU which is ironically closer to canon.

Why Thalmor Hate Diplomatic Immunity reviews
Ysraneth, half-Bosmer Nord, relates an old story to Elenwen. Elenwen is not amused but can't do anything because of diplomatic immunity. Later on, she gives Ulfric Stormcloak some advice. He might actually listen. Triggers: cannibalism, implied torture, potty mouths.

The Ethics of Eating a Dragon's Soul reviews
Ysraneth, the half-Bosmer Nord Dragonborn, has a serious question about the morality of eating dragons when she has the soul of one. So she asks Arngeir. Implied Lydia/f!Dragonborn, discussions of cannibalism.

Waste Not, Want Not reviews
Half-Nord and half-Bosmer, Ysraneth has some interesting interpretations of the Green Pact's Meat Mandate, especially in regards to the Altmer. After all, she's human and they're not, so it's technically not cannibalism. Thankfully, her new huscarl doesn't seem too judgemental. Lydia/Dragonborn.
