Hello! I'm The Golden Echo, welcome to the hell that is my bio page.

I'm a girl who writes for pleasure. I have a ridiculous amount of obsessive ideas that never quite make it off the drawing board. Meh, you're not losing anything. Trust me.

Regarding the Games I Play

XBox- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassin's Creed III, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Halo 3, Halo 4, Halo Reach

PC- Dragon Age: Origins, Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2, Sims 2, Sims 3

Regarding My Stories

I posted a DA:O story and promptly gave up on it. I have a few ideas written for DA2, a few more ideas for Mass Effect, barely viable Halo Universe stories, scraps of an SCP (see Creepypasta) blurb, and a generic zombie apocalypse story that combines elements from all matters undead. Don't ever expect to see them.

If you don't encourage the delusions of adequacy they won't bother you, I promise.
