Author has written 4 stories for Gears of War.


Call me Hyper. I have a vehement passion for the Gears of War universe, and thus write almost exclusively in the Gears section. Here, have a summary of my work this far...

Armoured Prayer
A slightly over-dramatized story about Marcus and Anya, their relationship, and a little mission they embark on. Mostly an experiment in pacing and keeping characters...well, in character.
Status: Complete
EDIT: This story is pretty damn old now, and full of lazy mistakes. I'd love to give it an overhaul one day. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who's still reading and faving!
EDIT2: STOP READING THIS. It's horrible. Why don't you read something newer and better like The Ephyran War Hymns instead? Or maybe even Hound? I promise you'll be less disappointed.
EDIT3: I hate this story. *sob*

Just a quick bit looking at Marcus in prison. Nothing too amazing, I just always wondered what something like this would look like.
Status: Complete

The Ephyran War Hymns
A collection of one- and oneish-shots exploring various moments in Anya and Marcus' paths, both together and apart. Each piece is inspired by a song or two; check out the titles and lyrics to hear them. Will be built upon slowly and when the mood strikes me.
Status: Ongoing collective (back from hiatus!)

A Few (Pertinent) Parting Notes:

- I try to give reviews of the unfluffy "carrot-stick-carrot" concrit variety. My intention is not to offend with these; only inform and help improve upon!
- Gears of War holds a special place in my heart. Hyper loves her some bloody gibs.
- Ask me about anything writing related, eh? I'd be glad to chat-chit about it.
- devirnis is a great writer. Go read her stuff.

Thanks for visiting!

The Ephyran War Hymns reviews
War is immense; endless as the sky it rages under. A Gear's life is trivial by comparison, little more than a finite sum of years. But years are made of moments: for some soldiers, those moments can be more powerful than even the bloodiest battles. [Back from hiatus]
